Been able to finally play this for a bit - I'm having a good deal of fun with it, though some things, like characters, story, are really half-assed.

But the worst has to be how I can parkur all around the city, jumping over walls and cars, scaling buildings, and I can keep going, no problem. BUT, three swings of a bat, and I'm fucking pooped!

Yes, that aspect is ludicrous.

I'm having fun with this game so far, but has of right now I have a couple complaints.

1. No fast travel option is an absolute pain in the ass.

2. The combat isn't very fun.

3. It kind of feels like all the crafted weapons are basically the same. It's not like Dead Rising.

4. Having to right R1 to jump and again to grab on. This game broke my R1 button.

Fast travel would've absolutely killed this game. Very glad they wisely decided not to include it.

I just wish there was a way to speed up time other than finding a safe house. Sometimes I need to wait for night, find myself a perfect spot, then realize it's all of 11AM.

Seriously screw this game. I was actually getting into it again after unlocking the grappling hook but then this game pissed me off by
Spoiler:
putting me in another freaking fight that takes away all my weapons and health items. The first time was bad enough and caused me to lose all my survivor points.
I'm done that's just lousy game design.

I enjoyed it, but the final boss battle was sort of a cop out. It was fun but nothing groundbreaking.

I wanted to bring this back up FWIW....two of us are getting this to do mainly co-op. I just ordered it off Amazon and my other friend is getting it later on. We came close when the game came out since we played the L4D series but went with something else at the time. So in case someone here has been thinking about it, you're more than welcome to grab it and join us. Like I said...we're planning on doing this strictly for the co-op part and might even grab that new Borak DLC coming out later.

I bought the game, DL the patch and last week while PSN had a big sale I grabbed the Season Pass...but yet to play since I'm waiting on a friend to get the game. No job so it's a matter of finding a sale or great price on a used copy.

I got a update the other day and another today...which I assume is the Bozak Horde Mode? Anyway here is the launch trailer....and is anyone still playing this...?

I just bought it at Target the other Day for $40. Didn't DL the season pass but did play an hour last night. Switching between this and Witcher 3.

Get the Bozak! That title makes no sense unless the guys are going to come at you with swinging scrotums.

Hello

Three of us have picked this finally and just want to do the co-op part together since one of us works nights and can only play two nights out of the week. We plan on starting this tomorrow and really haven't looked at game guides or anything...just hit it and go. however we started asking...can we just jump in co-op off the bat or is there some start up mission or check point you have to do before you can even start co-op? If just how much is there to do before co-op option becomes available/

You have to play 2 or 3 missions before co-op is available. The game tells you when you can start co-op.

People can jump in and out of the host's game. It seemed to take about an hour or so before co-op becomes available.

Re: Dying Light (from Dead Island Devs -- PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One -- Feb 201

Just got this game and it is interesting. The guy at Game Stop said it was pretty good and raved about the parkur. I just finished "the first mission" which kind of was a pain in the ass to find how to get the lights on. Had to look up a guide to do a couple of things as I got stuck. Was wondering (got this on the PS4) do people finish the main mission and afterwards work on the side missions or once a side mission pops up, work on it? I didn't really know about the side missions until I started exploring a guide (which sucks as I already finished the first mission and left like 3 side missions untouched and didn't even know about them).

I also got the message that I can co-op now and was wondering what that was about?

We've been plying this for three weeks and just the co-op mode which is by far one of the best I've experienced. it makes a difference with 2-3 of us instead of one. We're in the main mission but we'll do some side stuff at the same time. Four of us played last night and tried the new Horde mode along with some missions to get one caught up....he can only play the weekend. Me and my other friend though play during the week a lot. You're more than welcomed to send an FR and get in....this game rocks co-op period. Playing PS4 BTW......

I just want to make sure, you got to buy the PS Plus (like Xbox) to do Co-op right?

So what is the co-op all about? Like you can do the missions and side missions together? What if one person already did most of it and the other just started out/

Now it's $30 at Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy. Might finally be time to pick it up with GCU for $24.
