    Currently getting:
    The Magic Chisel

    How far through am I? Bouncing off the game at the mo, I go through phases of enjoying it and then just pushing through it for the sake of it!

    It was a gift so I feel a little obligated to finish it. How much story-wise am I missing if I just go through the Main Quest?

    You are before the halfway point-ish. Keep playing. Things will pick up fairly soon after this chapter, both in terms of gameplay and the plot.

    I've finished it at last! Good ending but yeesh was the game a slog. Wouldn't do if everyone liked the same though.

    I think traversal is a big part of what I enjoy in games, it's why I liked spiderman so much and here it felt so limiting. There's a small pile of rocks, I can go no further. The combat didn't do much for me either.

    Still, it was a gift and I've finished it! I'm now excited to move on to the next Xmas game.

    Oh no he said "JIF"? I can't watch that video then. Steve Wilhite is wrong about the pronunciation.

    I don't care if he is the creator, Steve Wilhite is wroooooong, just like you said.
    Creators who go back and mess with their original works often are. Just look at George Lucas and JK Rowling.

    “Giraffe” isn’t, to my knowledge, an acronym that starts with “graphics”

    Yeah I have a young one who is learning how to read and like 20% of the time you can tell her to sound it out. The other 80% of the time I'm like "yeah, yet ANOTHER trick word".

    My absolute favourite limerick in english. It really needs to be both heard and read to get the full joke, but here it is.

    There was an old woman from Slough (rhymes with cow)
    Who had a most terrible cough
    She wasn't to know
    It would last until now
    Let's all hope she pulls through

    Finally finished this. Got it for Christmas back in 2018 and took me to 2020 to finally boot it up. The first half was a struggle. Maybe I'm not the target group, as I've read folks with kids identify with it more, but I'd play for a bit then leave it for a week, before forcing myself back in. IDK what it was, the Mountain section in particular was really bad. Alfheim and Freya's area were the parts that kept me going, from an art and design perspective.

    But once I got the Blades back, oh boy. Man did the game just do a 180! Helheim was still a bit of a slog, but otherwise, I ended up finishing the back 50% in a week. The ending was amazing and now I can't wait for the next one. I think part of the issue is that I'm not an open world fan of story driven games. The early parts with you rowing about doing side quests and stuff, I started getting bored of really quick. I ended up just stopping all side quests and maybe that helped with the enjoyment.

    I'm not qualified to judge combat, I've gotten terrible at these games as I've gotten older. I just end up mashing buttons and these games aren't responsive enough like a fighter game to do 1 to 1, so I never really feel like I'm in control. I was super happy with the runic moves, as they really helped someone like me (plus Atreus spamming arrows lol). For the early game I mostly just used the R1 throw to "paint" targets, then while throwing it, I'd use shield slams to back it up. Once I had more Runic and more runic attacks, plus the Blades, I started enjoying combat a lot more. I tried Eir on accident and got plastered, so probably not going to try the Valkyries lol. Might try the other dragons just for the design aspect.

    I'm interested to see where they go. Seems they have 6 games worth of content, but are looking at a trilogy. I wonder if they'll mirror the original games, Ares/Baulder in 1, Zeus/Thor in 2, and all out Gods attack in 3. It'll be interesting if they do a Red Dead where in 3 they finally move on from Kratos. Though they'll have to do something with Atreus combat, since in the mural he still had his bow and I don't think straight bow combat could be the focus of an entire game. Maybe dual daggers, faster combat than with Kratos. Given Atreus's gift for languages, I'd love to see them have him go the Tyr route and we get games in Japan, Mesopotamia, and Egypt post Kratos.

    Anyways, it's the weirdest game I think I've played. I can't remember a game that I was fighting myself to keep playing only to get sucked 100% in so completely on the back half. I hope they really unleash the artists for the 2nd game and we get some better area's then "Mountain area" or "Forest area". Even though the graphical fidelity is crazy good in this vs the original games; those had you running through war zones, titans, and all sorts of interesting environments.
