Yep 8-12 hours is the perfect length for a single player action game like this.

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

so, i guess a preorder bonus was the first DLC Freedom Chronicles 0 or something. is that available yet? or no? because i didn't see it download along with the game...

Seriously? It's only five fucking posts above yours.


Anyways, the deluxe edition is pretty swell. The packaging is perfect. The figure is really well made, the guns, the clothes, all of it really well done and high quality, unlike a lot of other videogame toy thingies I've seen.

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

I'm a ways through - not digging it so much. It's alright, just nothing special. I think mostly, I don't care about the American setting for a game like this - they should've kept it to Europe.

well, they had to keep it fresh and new and a Nazi occupied America is something that is very intriguing and scary as hell...

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

And it’s still a pretty tough game. You can die quickly, in beginning, by taking a few shots from enemies that come out of nowhere. I play on 3rd difficulty level and it kicked my ass when I was in wheelchair. Remember similar stuff in TNO, tough and challenging but always passable somehow at many attempts.

Also, I thought I saw in ign video review that in this game you just have to walk over items to pick up instead of pressing X. Guess I was mistaken...

Wrapped it and I agree with this. It's good. But it does alot of things wrong. And there really isn't much meat to the thing when all is said and done. It should be a great Black Friday purchase for alot of people.

do you know roughly how long it took you? did you search stuff out or just run through it?

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

I'm absolutely loving it so far. Playing on Do or Die difficulty, which seems just right for me, challenging but not maddening.

Yeah, I think I was at about 10. But I definitely didn't search everything. 3 play sessions and it was a wrap for me.

that's not bad. 10hrs for normal gamers is like 6 months or more for me

DLC's not out yet. That 22 hours is just scouring all surrounding areas for collectables - only obsessives do that.

The picture alone with that option was HILARIOUS! It was a little tricky to know with so many difficulty options, but I picked a tougher one because I am in no rush. I also save scum a fair amount.

I am not searching for every little thing, but I sure would like to find a weapon upgrade so I could at least get a silencer.

One thing I really like is the option to go stealth or guns blazing, with no real downside to either. In other games when I get tired of stealth and just unload, I usually get some sort of guilt trip (real or imagined) from the game, like "You really shouldn't have done that and now you won't get the extra special achievement," or something like that.

This game plays better when you go in "guns blazing" rather than stealth, IMO.

Re: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 10/27/17

So I’m playing, died, got a black screen with music playing and no picture. I get out of game, reload and try to get back and keep getting load profile screen and it stalls there, again, while music is playing. Can’t get back in game. Shut system and went back in and same thing.

Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Yikes--that totally blows. For some reason my system runs REALLY LOUD when I'm playing this, and only this. No idea why but it's making me nervous, and for the first few tries it said disc error/couldn't load/etc., but I eventually got through to start it. Happened again and it took several tries of turning everything off to eventually be able to load a saved game. Good luck !
