    I like his starting hair but I think the shaved head bushy beard combo is a strong look for him

    Has there ever been an RPG where only doing the main quests has let you stay properly leveled?

    But that alone isn't the problem.

    That's why I said that. And yea I'd say actually there are plenty of rpgs that you can play without doing side quests. A majority of JRPGs have sidequests that have no to little bearing on where you are xp wise. Pretty sure you can play through Elder Scrolls games just following the story and maybe popping into some random dungeons along the way. I feel like a lot of games actually have side quests mostly for non-xp purposes actually the more I think about it. Just like side rewards and such not actually halting all progress constantly to go off on forced side questing.

    The point was that the side quests are extremely nonrewarding in a twofold level. They themselves are kinda boring and the only reward is xp which gets you levels that are also pretty boring.

    I find Senu to be a huge hassle to use!

    I've gotten used to her, but it was incredibly frustrating for the first few hours of the game. The problem is, Senu's effectively the most-used tool in your kit and her implementation can be very slow and tedious. It's most frustrating when the game removes the waypoint at 150 yards to make you switch to her to find the target, which for large forts can be far enough away where you have to find the target, then get closer and use her again. Also, if you don't get everyone in that first sweep, prepare to spend another minute on this, because turning her takes more time than backing up an 18-wheeler.

    I love her mechanic and using her for scouting and the overhead recon, but yeah, I really, really miss just having Eagle Vision.

    Stealth is great for me
    I am sorry you're not having the same experience

    Yeah I'm going through the game and stealthing everything, I've barely gotten into combat at all.

    Once you hit the upper levels you enter the same condition as you do in Black Flag where stealth is a matter of speed and courtesy, not necessity, because if I alert a guard and they raise the alarm it means I'm spending the next three minutes murdering everyone in a 100-yard radius and it has nothing to do with likelihood of death, but merely that it's so inconvenient.

    That said, the total lack (so far, here's hoping it stays that way) of any missions that go "haha, you were seen, fuck you, you lose now" is exhilarating.

    @I'm an elk; shoot me
    You don't have to turn Senu around
    If you go into hover mode, whichever way you're looking when you let off of it is the way Senu herself will be pointing
    You can do a quick flip that way

    I feel like doing the viewpoint sync really helps with Senu. Not at first, it felt pretty negligible to me in the beginning, but further along the increased detection range becomes very noticeable.

    Two weird things.

    Early on, like, super early on when you're hunting gazelles to get your very first armor upgrade, I ran into the Wireframe DNA Warning Field of Doom pursuing an angry large cat up a mountain, which lead me to think that the regions are walled off, story-wise.

    And yet now I discover I can actually go to a lot of places (Mind you, places with high level Hyenas and the like, but I can travel there still). It wasn't like I was probing the Force Wall in the first encounter. So...bug, then?

    It's probably because the starting zone is surrounded by level 40 zones and there's no low level travel route to get from there to the second zone. Rather than getting ganked over and over, they don't even let you try.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    My experience was you were walled into Siwa for the intro, then after the title card you can go anywhere. Though there's a definite herding effect keeping you around the area you end up in after the intro, with enemies getting stronger the further towards the edge of the map you wander.

    I love using Senu to scope out an entry into a restricted zone, getting in, getting to my target, then using him again to create my exit. It feels great.

    Yeah, all the areas around Siwa are way over the starting level (like, 35+), so that plus the walls are there to keep you vaguely on-track early on.

    Fun thing in a Giza mission:
    After you get tricked into stealing a horse for a guy in exchange for information, there's nothing stopping you from just taking the horse right after.
    You actually get speech for it:
    "Hey! You're stealing my horse!"
    "You cannot steal what is already stolen."

    I am currently short on cash because I'm saving up for the "Sell 100 Trinkets in 1 go" achievement because I dunno, it seems like something that'll be easy to miss. I'm 11 carbon crystals short of top gear so that's what the windfall is going on when I get there, for now, I feel pretty ok with where I'm at, which is hunting The Crocodile at level 33.

    I really really like how they introduce Aya
    Have a quest to kill 5 of the men responsible for your sons death

    Kill one at the start, kill another afterwards.
    Go and meet your wife to plan for the other 3

    "Oh, I got 2 of them. Yeah they're dead. We just have 1 more."

    Instantly effective at showing that she's just as competent as Bayek and a fun surprise given how the menus have been making you think you're gonna kill all 5

    Yeah this was great. I was really wondering how they were going to stretch out only 4 assassinations over the entire game and then you meet her and she's all "Oh yeah they're already all dead"

    I thought the story was too meandering for its own good up until I hit the Scarab quest last night, and now I'm all in.

    I was kinda disappointed by the bow. I liked sniping dudes with the predator bow but when the bar for me is the 2 latest tomb raider games then anything else just feels kinda bad.

    I liked the upgrades/level ups in that game a lot as it really had a lot of impact.

    If there's a question mark, I go check it out, and loot everywhere I come across. Money's never been an issue, though I've yet to find a weapon I've wanted to buy (I've upgraded a couple to my level when I was really hurting for a certain weapon), and I've only bought one horse and a couple of outfits.

    Anybody having issues with side quests disappearing?

    I was going to do A Tithe By Any Other name but by the time I finished whatever was doing the icon for starting it vanished and I haven't been able to get it to reappear.

    Also trying to complete The Hungry River but all the quest markers for it have vanished so I'm trying to figure it out with fucking walkthrough videos.

    Hitting both of these issues within an hour is worrisome af. Wondering if I should put it down and wait for a patch in case I hit anything game breaking. Wish this had multiple save slots so I could have a backup if something breaks.

    I almost bought in game currency because I started grinding for materials as soon as I could and was getting super burned out. When a game gives me the freedom to max stuff out asap I usually go nuts.

    I eventually just chilled after getting a few ranks in each item and the game will start showering you in materials over time.

    Also you should always assassinate any group of 3 dudes who ride past you on a horse.
