    nice purchase as the core mechanics are stupid fun you should have loads of fun (particularly co-op), yet somehow the devs managed to fuck up the ending... im still bitter about this 7 months later.

    Hopefully the multiplayer connections are working better than they were at release.

    Is the final game indicative of the demo on PS 4? I tried the demo and the framerate was wooooooaaaaahhhhh bad. Proper nauseating.

  • m!ttensm!ttens Registered User regular
    @Big Classy it didn't seem to be a problem on PC once a couple of performance patches released shortly after launch.

  • Big ClassyBig Classy Registered User regular
    Yeah I'm hoping that's the same deal for console version

    NIGHT = SCARY, holy crap that first drop/night transition was intense.

    Also how do you even fight those giant hammer jerks? The first encounter at the power station I somehow managed to get him to smash on a propane tank and kill himself. Recently tried clearing a safe house with one hammer, two hazmats and some regular zombies. Apparently a molotov or two aren't enough to kill anything non-standard? Eventually died on that one.

    If anyone is around on X1, I've been playing this more lately and I'd be glad to have a friend come along. My best weapon is currently a Lacerator hammer...thing.

    When you first run into the hammer jerks the key (for me) was distance. I built a ton of throwing weapons and just fought like that. I also guerrilla fought them. Run in, get a few hits, run back. Once you get your skills up it won't be too hard to fight them (they aren't terribly common either).

  • DocshiftyDocshifty Registered User regular
    Dealing with hammers is just in and out strikes. Like an old SNES boss or something, run in, strike three or four times, run away when the big televised wind up begins, then run back in.

    Thanks guys. I did try that a bit when I found one doing the first radio transmitter for Rais, but it didn't seem to get me anywhere so I just led him away and ran back to the shack I needed to get in.

    Also a really good tactic. :) They are worth a lot of EXP but avoiding them in the beginning is the best bet.

    If anyone is around on X1, I've been playing this more lately and I'd be glad to have a friend come along. My best weapon is currently a Lacerator hammer...thing.

    Here's how I kill those guys easy.

    Step 1: Unlock the skill that lets you throw your melee weapon.

    Step 2: Get yourself the highest damage melee weapon you can find. None of the other stats matter. Just damage per hit.

    Step 3: When you find a goon, swap to it and throw it at them. If the damage is high enough, it can kill them in one hit to the head. The rebar clubs wielded by those guys can be sufficient for OHKO's (there is some damage variance. Some of the rebar clubs can kill in one hit, but other rebar clubs barely fail to kill. Throw a random other weapon to finish the job).

    Eventually you'll find a good fireaxe that can do this job consistently. Weapon damage scales pretty crazily, so you'll reach a point where your quick and fast machete weapons are capable of landing a killing blow with a single throw.

    Step 4: Pick the weapon back up and save it for the next giant dude.

    Prior to that I just spammed the throwing stars and stuff that I otherwise never used.


    Here's an old video of me killing a goon with a fireaxe (with some audio commentary from Megamek). Again, some of the rebar sticks wielded by the goons have high enough damage to kill in one hit (you'll be exhausted after throwing it though, so make sure you clear out the nearby trash mobs before trying to use the giant thing).

    On Feb 9th, the expansion as well as the 'enhanced edition' will release. They say that improvements made to the base game(graphical improvements, bounty system etc) will be free tn those who already own the game.

    Gonna finally get this game on the 9th

    DUG! I always have fond memories of BF3 with you, hopefully you pick this up on Xbone so we can smash infected brains together.
    And if you don't want to wait until Feb 9, you can just buy any vanilla version of the game and the Season Pass (19.99 on Amazon for email code) and you get the exact same content right now (minus whatever updates that aren't yet released). That's what I just did to get started now and hopefully be ready for The Following content when it comes out.

    I picked this up during the Halloween (?) sale and put about 10-12 hours into it but I got to a point where all my missions seemed really onerous... story mission was turning on a power station at night or something and my main side quest was a warehouse full of dudes with guns. Kind of killed my desire to keep playing but I should try to get back to it... maybe grind for that camouflage skill or something.

  • OlivawOlivaw good name, isn't it? peach treesRegistered User regular
    That power station sidequest also breaks the game's economy if you let it, because every zombie drops something and depending on how patient you are there's like two hundred zombies around that power station

    I watched a video on how to stealth it beforehand which made it look pretty doable. In reality it didn't work out that way, and I died a few times and used up all the flares I had trying. So then I went "I'm going to do something else for a while" and ended up doing something else for like two months.

    @Gaslight are you on X1? I'd be glad to join you in scarytown. I definitely need a night buddy, otherwise I just crawl around smashing my survivor sense and avoiding anything shiny.

    Sorry, PC. Appreciate the offer though.

    Edit: Found on a reddit thread while looking for videos of that mission:
    Enter the area during the day and simply wait for Night to appear, at which point you can just hit the button, or...
    You can go at night, but enter from the cliff on the right side of the station, hop over the barbed wire and onto one of the transformers, and simply jump over all the zombies to the station.

    20 for the base game doesn't sound bad. It would be a blast to zombie co-op parkour

    Goombaing zombies was the best way to get out of a tight spot...unless you jump onto a boomer.

    Season pass is $20 for sure, base game is 20-30 depending on where you look and used/new. I know Best Buy has it for 20 used and you can have a copy shipped free to a local store.

    @General_Armchair you're my hero. Finally got one of those guys down during an escort mission, grabbed the rebar hammer. Next big guy I just tossed that at his face and he just dropped. Also tried night two more times, got a cricket bat with fire and electricity plus an upgrade. Still can't even hurt those freaky night dudes...

    See, for me it's just in this game that they suck

    In something like Left 4 Dead, that Boomer had an extremely distinct silhouette, a ton of audio cues if you couldn't see him, and being exploded on only attracted more zombies rather than killing you outright

    Dying Light's boomer, on the other hand, looks exactly like any other zombie, doesn't have any audio cues, and exploding next to you is an instant kill

    It must be like six or seven times I've turned a corner, seen a zombie in my face, swung my weapon automatically, and died instantly because it was a boomer

    Everything Valve/Turtle Rock did right, Techland did wrong

    How does The Following dlc work? I don't see an option to purchase it separately, does that mean people who own Dying Light already own it?

    I think they may have screwed their SKUs up. It says I own "Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition", but there's also a "Dying Light: The Following" DLC for "Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition."

    The original game got the engine upgrades they did for the expansion as a patch. The old version no longer exists, only enhanced. "The Following" is the DLC. If you own the season pass it was included.


    EDIT: I haven't played since near launch, so I dunno if it got fixed a while back but the engine issues seem to be ironed out and it runs much better than it did a month after launch. GPU stays up near 99% usage.

    So I am on the PS4 and I do own the season pass version, I don't see anyway to download it however.

    Maybe they are having some trouble with their SKUs like jdarksun said.

    I fired up my X1 this morning and it started downloading automagically, which I assumed was the Enhanced Edition + The Following.

    I didn't pick up the expansion yet, but it releasing did remind me to come back to this. Combined with my new graphics card and the new engine, I can run the game at max and get like 100 FPS...and man this game looks good at maximum settings. Think I may get back in to this.
