So I am slowly discovering that certain side bosses are really difficult to kill.  I am also surprised to see that I am not nearly as far along in Veteran mode as I thought.  The world is pretty damn big from a gaming point.  And they generally make it worth your while to do full clears.  I am level 39 and I still have a ways to go.  Anyone know if the areas scale to your level?  I am surprised if that is the case because then it would be possible to get to near end game level without even reaching Ultimate level.  I am nearly half way to the level cap and not out of my first game play.

The other thing that is surprising me is that I would have to imagine that HC is really really tough.  There are time you are cruising around and you turn the corner and you are mobbed by three boss packs.  They hit you with some spell that slows you down and there is no way in hell that you can get away.  So far it doesn't seem possible to out level the monsters that you encounter.

Tough game.

Also looking forward to level 40 as I have some blue items to put on.

Unfortunately, I've also recently started to notice that some games that never triggered motion sickness has started to do that.  Not bad but I imagine it is going to get worse.

I found that the final boss fight in Grim Dawn gave me motion sickness big time; so much so that I was unable to complete it in Ultimate.

*sigh*  Something to look forward to.

I've never understood people's fascination with Doctor Who.  So...meh.

I think the perfect example of this idea is a game called Heavy Rain.  Main people criticize it for the game mechanics.  But the story is amazing and engrossing.  It sports one of the highest completion percentages on the PlayStation platform.

I personally highly recommend playing it.

People here tend to play very repetitive/grinding games.  That becomes tedious after a while.  Also as you mature it becomes less important to be 1337.

When I play games that are more engaging story wise my ability to keep going is increased.

I am back to playing after a 4th of July lull.

I think I am getting close to the end of veteran mode.  I am level is slowly getting more difficult.  There is one boss, I forget his name, that I have not been able to kill yet.

Watched Glitched on Netflix.  Interesting show...not sure where it is heading.  It is made in Australia for what that is worth..

Just started playing this today.  Giving POE and Battle Brothers a rest.

I'M SO CONFUSED! - Never played TQ and the skill tree is....different.  :)

Builds are easy to screw up.  You can buy back the points, so it is not too bad if you mess up.  Honestly I watched about 20 minutes worth of youtube videos to get the gist of what was going on.  You also have to learn about Devotions which are unique to this game.
