He asks because he doesn't have a PlayStation, just a Sony TV that he can do PSNow on. I think you'll be waiting a while OldBoy.

Seriously. If ever there was a time, now is the time. Or at the very latest, Black Friday this year. There isn't going to be a sweeter spot to get a machine and games at a great price.

Picked this up yesterday.

Hoping to dig into it once the classes I'm teaching finish up.

No thank you. Keep him with his X-box and the million questions he always ask in that thread.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Got a few more hours in last night but it was all spent doing side quests, which basically just opened up for me. Most of the time was spent on one that involved a dwarf castle and freeing a dragon. Still a long way to go, i assume.

Oh and FYI to anyone who may watch his videos. Angry Joe's review has, what I consider a spoiler. He may not have known due to not playing any of the older games but early in the video he shows a clip where:
Spoiler:
Kratos is using his chain blades from the earlier games.
Not a huge one, I guess but I would have liked to have not known about it when I eventually get it.

Is that what those little black voids are that I've run across? I clicked on one and a monster clearly far stronger than I came out and 1-shot me. Pretty funny actually. I haven't touch another since. lol

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I got one-hit killed by a monster out of one of those void things too, but on another one, I just got an item/artifact, with no monster. So each one is different, I guess.

Yeah, you get some stuff that's needed for certain crafts/upgrades, but the enemies in there can often kill you in a couple hits. I've beaten a couple, but I spent 30 minutes the other night on one of them before giving up. And yeah, some don't have an enemy and just get you items.

For those that want the "Souls" experience, I guess

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Good to know. I'll start doing them again and just deal with the kills when they happen. I think I skipped 2 or 3 after that first one messed me up.

As impossible as those encounters seem now, they'll be a cakewalk once you're leveled up.

My tip-that-you're-probably-already-doing would be to deck out Atreus as soon as possible. Prioritize his skills over Kratos'. Max out whatever your favorite rune for him is. Upgrade his armor and bow.

I'll lead with Atreus' runic attack and have him rapid-fire a bunch of arrows, and that'll go a long way towards softening up those guys. Keep moving. Don't forget about your own runic attacks. Have Atreus keep firing arrows as soon as he's reloaded. As for Kratos, there's no shame in attacking from a distance. Seriously, though, keep moving. Keep off the moors. Best of luck t'ya.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

How do you use Atreus's Runic? I know I have the one where a wolf comes out but I haven't used it yet. And I do stick to ax throwing at times, depending on the enemy. This was definitely a situation where I wasn't expecting it. The guy popped out of the void and killed me before I even realized what happened.

Regarding upgrades, I have been working on Atreus mostly. I've upgraded the bow skills much more than Kratos'.

Yeah, I saw that bit on Reddit. It definitely would've been a nice surprise to see it on my own.

Speaking of, I just reached that part yesterday. Does anyone who's finished this know about how much story is left? I'm really liking this game, but I'm getting the itch to move on to something else.

The murder of crows is amazing for hard fights because besides the damage, it can lock down enemies for a long period of time, and they hang around until new enemies spawn...

The squirrel is EXTREMELY useful before the start of a battle...it will usually dig up enough rage to fill your bar, then you can switch it back to another one after the cool down is done...it allows you to use your rage much more freely late game.

I had a lot of fun trying fights that were purple, because even on hard, late game it gets easy (and you are locked out of the god of war difficulty unless you chose it right away)...but there was one hard fight late game against an optional boss that had me thinking Dark Souls after a while..

That is hard to say because I mixed in all the side quest as they became available...from my experience you are half way, but if you don't get distracted by side missions and collectibles probably 75% done with the story...

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I really suck at this kind of game and I'm dying a lot but I'm still loving it. I just can't remember 87 different button presses. The graphics are just stunning. This really lets the Pro shine.

Awesome! I appreciate the tips, and I'll give all of those a shot for sure. I'm especially loving what you suggested about the squirrel helping to fill up the rage meter.

I finished up everything but the Valkyries in Midgard and Alfheim, and Helheim is next on the list.
