Well, that's sad. Discord is great but this place was nice to keep up reviews and lists, focused discussions etc.
I didn't thing day would come this fast.
The Frozen Wilds(Horizon: Zero Dawn story DLC)(PS5 via backward compatibility)
Graphics were still incredible!
I love snow environments in games.
Also faces were definitely improvement. And side quests were a tad better here I guess.
That WHOLE conversations with
was the best thing in this Frozen Wilds! That's what I care, also I am glad I left this DLC for later and started it when I finished 3/4 of the main game so I had more topics to talk with her.
You know the sad things were reading old ones' stories.
unfinished love story.
I couldn't care less about main story in the DLC.
I still don't like the combat and try to avoid it as much as possible. Even though it gets less annoying with new weapon upgrades still not that fun. Only times I'm really enjoying were using projectile type things, especially detached robots parts.
And main story was bland unfortunately.
New robots were challenging but not in an enjoyable way. Also f**k you
Thank God I did the
upgrade so that I can kill it a bit easier after a while.
Difficulty spike was not cool. Even with my endgame armor, 50+ level and powerful weapons I had hard times. Maybe it could be better to feel a bit OP considering those achievements.
Overall, it was still fun I guess. This franchise is interesting to me because I don't love it and I'm sure of this but at the same time it gives me a kind of satisfaction. I guess it has to do with my completionist side to a degree. Also I love sci-fi side of things and old ones' memories. They say weak tribal stuff was improved in 2nd game too, hope it's true but they also say main story is bland. We'll see...
3.5/5 overall. Yesterday it was 3/5 but I played a couple of hours more today and in the end didn't want to be unfair to it, it is still above average. Finally; winter atmosphere was really beatiful and I can't stress it enough. Especially in the night inbetween high mountains and feeling the chills and loneliness. Scary but awesome!
Here I come! I spend more time with games for some months now so if all goes well it will be more than last year hopefully. Also because of I started backloggd, I am beginning 5/5 star system! Have a good year y'all!

I actually use them, kill normal guys to get back health etc. Putting some charms.
My main problem is, even though benches are not so far away it's still some distance and while I try to get back to bosses for retries or going into new places; normal guys just annoys me with the stuff I said and when I die it makes me furious. Especially exploring new spaces. And you know because game has tight spaces they almost always hurt me some even if I try not to bother with them.
They could at least put a new bench before every boss.
All in all, I disagree with everything you said from my experience with it until now with 10 hours. Not enough benches, annoying normal enemies hurting you everytime you are going back to same boss, not enough resources to stay alive most of the time when you have one hp left etc.
If only checkpoint system wasn't this awful, I could bear the other annoying parts.
Alright, let's do this one more time:
