Me and Tressdoss played Co-op and it’s surprisingly decent? Like it’s actually quite fun. I am super reckless apparently and it cost us our 7 day survival achievements. But even then it was quite funny (if embarrassing)

Yeah. Now I see that the co-op achievements are totally doable it makes me want to go back in and get all of them now.

TBF I should've given fair warning about the poison arrows but yeah, look out for spike pits too :lol:

I think we've got a fair chance at rinsing those achievements. :wink:

Man this Cold Darkness thing is really going to be the thing that pushes me, actually. This is terrible.

Tresdoss do you have any tips for the score attack stuff? Should it be low difficulty with lots of multiplier cards or high difficulty with multiplier reducing cards? Any cheat combos?

There's a way to look at the leaderboards of each challenge (can't remember the actual button, sorry) while looking at them you can use credits to buy their card set up's... as long as it has a high multiplier and includes unlimited poison arrows (for combat scenarios) you should be good.

It's also a good idea to try to work out what score you actually need to get for whatever multiplier you're using with a calculator.

Oh, and try to keep that bonus chain up by collecting the blue flames and shooting the red things.

Sheesh so I tried going for some of these score challenges today, and since Tresdoss was right and you can pick the same card multiplier set up as other people technically it makes this easy. Like if you need 100,000 points on a level, and you go to the leaderboards and find someone with 800,000 points, although you have to do is pick their set up and make sure you aren’t less than 8 times as good as them, which is a fairly easy standard to average. However it just takes so long. Or it feels like it takes so long. I’ve done 5 levels, I have 25 to go. And best I can tell there is a maximum of about 60g to get out of it.

Like. Yikes. As much as I know it isn’t worth it, I hate seeing games in my list that aren’t at 100%.

Maybe this will be something I do here and there. Like if I just do a few levels a day then in a week it will be done.

Man, trying to do these puzzle rooms under time attack is the absolute worst and makes me want to throttle someone. Lara is super fucking slow, doing the procedures is so fucking slow, there are constantly timers ticking down everywhere

I might just do all the ‘action courses’ first and then use a YT guide to see how you actually do the puzzles because I don’t remember most of them

I really shouldn’t be doing this. I should be doing something I enjoy instead :evil:

Just run them first, don't even attempt to beat the scores... Get a lay of the level , where the multipliers are and that before trying for the score... You'll save yourself a lot of stress.

I’m not sure if I said this before, and it’s probably me, but I find the aiming in this game to be so dramatically difficult. Like even standing still trying to shoot objects that are static is about 50% chance I hit, even if the target is quite big.

There's some input lag on Xbox. I never really noticed it but it's been confirmed by quite a few sources and never patched.

So I did it all, all levels all gold star. Achievement bugged. Tracking at only 93%. Looked around online and seems to be a rare but does happen kind of issue.

Sigh

I just why
