Haha...ayos na ko sa normal mode, sa rozen wilds lang eh kahit may ancient armor ka eh ramdam mo na ang tama ng ibang mga machine. Tatapusin ko lang siguro ng mabilisan yung Frozen Wilds, gusto ko na din kasi malaro yung GoW eh...

^Ah oo, mas mahirap nga ang Frozen Wilds. Relentless din ang mga machines kahit hindi Ultra Hard. Kaya nga binalak ko i-max out muna to level 60 bago ko simulan ang Frozen Wilds. Kaso natabunan na ng Monster Hunter: World at God of War. Baka after ng God of War balikan ko na yung Frozen Wilds. :lol:

Started with this game. Just before the proving pa lang ako but I've already gone 3 hours through the game. I like to build up my character first. >.>

Aloy's not made to be sexy, noh? She has the nene face.

Also, I kinda wish na M ang rating nito. Not asking for nudity but It's a bit lighthearted for a post apocalyptic game.

the tone is all serious in the game, it gets more dramatic in the later part, be sure to get data logs for more background on what happened before

Am I missing something? I am getting murdered in this game, the focus info aren't much help. God, the machines are relentless and my damage just minimal, even when I'm using fire on an enemy weak to it.

Which part of the game are you at? What level are you?

Level 28 and just entered Meridian. I'm having trouble with the flying ones and the bigger ones. It's like sunod sunod yung attacks I don't have time to compose myself. I just can't handle non stealth combat. Sure I can hide and redo stealth pero meron yung mga combat na wala talaga akong matataguan. I just need a tip on how to handle 3 or more enemies at the same time.

For example eh yung rock breaker. I can't even aim. I don't know how I'm going to win that by just dodging all the time. I can't even dodge properly, the machines are anticipating where I land and shoot there. What the hell is this game? T.T T.T

Oh if you mean the stormbirds, those are probably one of the toughest machines to beat. You're going to need to tie it down with the rope caster and then it will give you time to expose its weak points. I think you're going to have to use tearblast arrows to remove some armor plating, then use your fire arrows to deal damage when its exposed.

The rock breaker I also hate lol. Natatakot ako every time i encounter a rockbreaker (especially sa expansion lol). Pero dodge, dodge lang, and timing and you'll get it.

I think you may be under-leveled or don't have the right gear yet to face these encounters. I last played this game last december - and if you're not appropriately geared up or leveled to face certain machines - it gets really tough.

Ah thanks. As much as I can, I won't use a guide. But after your suggestion eh I google the weapons and have a much clearer understanding on what I'm doing wrong.

Finished the main story and the frozen wild. I still believed it should have been rated M. Some of the characters are one faceted. The good are good, the bad are bad. The story is engaging, though, but it's built on a "tell" narrative via notebook, when some scenes could have been a "show" narrative.

There are some where the narrative does not fit in with the world design. Like one character unable to pass a certain door for 19 years, when the rest of the stage are obviously accessible elsewhere. There are scenes where the moral dilemma seems forced, and the goody Aloy seems to turn a blind eye on some NPC choices because the story requires to tie lose ends.

Another criticism is that it is open world, yet Aloy can't climb a 4 feet boulder because it doesn't have markings that indicate a designated climable obstacle. And once Aloy's on the climb, the slow motion for longer jumps seems overly dramatic, because once you're hanging, there's no threat of falling really. No real choice either but to move forward with the climb.

I'd give it a 7.5/10 for an engaging story but that's about it. The world could have been better.

Stormbirds - use a ropecaster, tearblast and fire arrows.

Rockbreakers - use tripcaster. Lure them to it. Same technique as with the Thunderjaw.

Fighting them head on is really hard even with the highest level and best armor. Unless you master the use of focus.

I am on my Ultra Hard playthrough. Even the small machines are tough.
