I need to find where the count is.

And the platinum achievement doesn't seem too difficult.

Finished the main game in Horizon: Zero Dawn.  Now that is how you do an epic story.  Holy crap that was great.  Interesting story and they way they built it up was fantastic.  The game as a whole is also awesome, but not flawless.  I was not a huge fan of the economy and toward the end that fighter went from stealth to all out brawling.  Thank god I took the time to find a special armor.  The might have been tedious without it.  As a whole the game is one of the best games I have ever played.  If you enjoy a game with a great story and great action I would highly recommend this one.  It is a pity it is not available outside of the PS4.

I am now working on the DLC for the game and it seems to really adding to the world so far.

Whatever else you think of Ocasio-Cortez she came to yesterday's hearings with a plan.  I am actually very impressed.

Someone is going after Trump for taxes.

I wonder if there are any other nuggets like this in yesterday's hearing.

Proving once and for all that the whole is greater than the parts.  Now we just need a 15 to 20 hour movie covering the whole story.

He actually had a bunch of good responses.  But yes.  Trump was a shit bag before this day.   Trump is a still shit bag.  From that POV nothing really changed.

I would like to say this is me:

But I am not in the least bit surprised by what is coming out.  No one should be.

And the day is still early.

After I buy/build a computer I ignore all news about parts for about six months.  It is always frustrating to keep up with it after purchase.

The patch is pretty seamless.  Just need to remember to activate it.

So if you are going to play wait until they sort things out.

Also, how going is this game from a single player POV.  I have no real interest in joining others.

Good advice from Darkness.  I have never managed to get to UVHM below 50.  In TVHM you do the minimum to get through it all and into UVHM.  Tiny Tina is really tough in the beginning especially those stupid bone archers.  Once you get past them it does get a little better.

I am not clear on your level and character info would be good.  I think the important thing to remember is that in UVHM the monsters always scale to your level.  This is good because you can continue to farm the same monster as you level up and their drops will continue to be (mostly) on level.  Drops can be within three levels of your level, except for during Marcus Mercenary Day, where they are always your level.  This is one of many reasons why this is a brilliant place to farm.

As for the order of play through you should remember that some quests/areas cannot be run over and over.  An example of this is the mission in the Pirate DLC that rewards you the Sandhawk (there are hacks around this).  The Sandhawk is a reward for a mission.  Once you get it you can't get it again unless you reset the all your progress in UVHM.  So the level you play a DLC is very important.  So there are two main strategies for playing the DLCs.  One is just to play it for fun and enjoy story/content.  The other is to wait until you are max level to run so you can get certain weapons/rewards at max level.

About the DLCs:
1- Tiny Tina is the best one.  Best story.  Some really good weapon rewards as well as areas that you can farm over and over.  The Bee shield is worth farming.  I recommend doing the DLC and getting to the Forest and farming a Bee Shield.  Then finishing the DLC after you get to level 72.  Another amazing weapon is a Torg shotgun in the beginning of the DLC.  It is not an end game weapon but if you get it will help you level up to level 72. 
2- Pirate DLC -  This one has two of the best weapons in the game.  They are both bound to quests so can only be farmed once per play through.  Recommendation is to do this at level 72.  There is a hack to replay those missions if you choose to go down that path.  The Leviathan at the end of the DLC is a really tough monster and has a treasure room that can (technically) only be opened once per play through.  Again there are ways around that.
3- Torg DLC - The main thing of note is that Pyro Pete's Bar is a great way to level up.  Has ok random drops and can be played over and over.  Trog DLC is pretty fun over all.
4- Mr. Hammerlock DLC - mostly Meh.

Another thing to do in the beginning is to farm Savage Lee and get Unkempt Harold.  Probably one of the most powerful guns in the game and easy to farm.

The other main add on is Marcus' Mercenary Day which has already been mentioned.  Really helpful for getting weapons on your level.

I'll bite.  Crossed the 50 threshold last year.  Two kids, 15 and 17.  One trying to decide where to go to college the other cruising through high school.  Can I just add that I hate the high school years.  Been married for 21 years.  Still working as a software engineer though lately I am feeling a bit burnt out on it.

Hobbies mainly revolve around gaming, running/hiking (though lately haven't done enough), and some snowboarding thrown in.  Need to find an over 50 soccer league.  Need to find a DND group.  Haven't played since my teen years and I would love to get back into it.

I enjoyed BL1 but I don't think it is necessary to play.  I would google for a BL1 summary.  Not a complicated story.

You have to play it on normal.  Then you have to play TVHM.  Only by finishing that can you get into UVHM.

DA: I the first Pride demon was stupid tough.  There were some battle with monsters/dragons that were unwinnable until you got better gear or higher level.  I think there was also a certain area progression that you should follow to stay on level.  Certain areas would just pwn you if you went there too soon.

I also think that because I am really high level for this fight in H:ZD the monster was beef up also.  Meaning that I might have been better off tackling the area sooner.

I think I am about 80 hours into Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Overall the game is awesome and challenging.  Every once and a while though you run into a situation that is beyond tough.  I find that a bit annoying that these spikes happen.  Right now I am in one of them.  It is a set piece where you basically have to fight this insane machine with no cover.  Frustrating.  That said the good does out weigh the bad.

Still not a fan of the inventory system.
