Maybe that made the game too easy?

I beat the game and got 100% of the collectibles to suppress my OCD. Excellent game, definitely a GOTY contender. Granted, I haven't played many others.

I still have like 8 hordes left to destroy (there's 48 total), but the 8 left are all hordes that number in the hundreds. It's very exciting taking on a horde, but also very tedious. You have to spend a considerable amount of time scavenging for all the parts you need for the bombs and traps you need to take them out.

Got this early for Christmas and been playing it a lot. It has so many problems but manages to still be fun and addictive enough that it doesn't matter. The AI is atrocious, I've had bad guys run for cover behind the same log I was hiding behind and they don't see me. The stealth is pointless not just because of the bad AI but also because there's no incentive or reward to not get discovered.

Still having a lot of fun and the game world is huge, I just got a mission that unlocked the southern end of the map so I guess there's a lot left?!

If the southern end you're referring to is Lost Lake, there's more. In fact, it's south of Lost Lake. There are a total of 5 regions: Lost Lake, Belknap, Crater Lake, Highway 97, and Cascade

Finished this one over the holidays. GOTY for me. The story and characters really sucked me in. Incredibly well acted even with the secondary characters like Mike and Skizo. I totally sucked at hordes and it took me days to get them beat. Running with nowhere to go but open field with hundreds of zombies on your tail and no stamina left. Yikes. Thank goodness that the game would let me run away, save, stock up and attack them again with the Sawmill horde.

Re: Days Gone (Bend Studio) PS4 exclusive - 04/26/2019

I started this last week and I'm enjoying it so far. I'm about 10 hours in and I have mostly been working on exploring and clearing nests. I just discovered Tucker's camp. I'm worried that I haven't used my skill points wisely. I have used them all on melee so far and I probably should have used a couple on ranged weapons. I don't have the focused shot yet and I have been struggling with shooting. It's been a little terrifying when I have come up on hordes just trying to drive around or clear a nero checkpoint. I'm going to try to clear the nests at Crazy Willy's when I play again on Thursday.

Re: Days Gone (Bend Studio) PS4 exclusive - 04/26/2019

I finished Days Gone over the weekend. I really liked it, but the story is a little bit too long. I have been going around clearing out hordes and trying to get 100%. I have never gotten a Platinum trophy before and I'm going to try to get one with Days Gone since difficulty doesn't factor into it. I saw the secret ending and it blew my mind.
Spoiler:
O'Brian is infected with a strain that keeps his intelligence, but gives him enhanced strength and agility. Are all the Nero agents infected? If they make a sequel, it could be an amazing game.

I didn't buy this earlier based on bad reviews, but boy am I glad I picked it up for $19.99. I've been playing the )([email protected]#* out of it during the quarantine and am having a great time. Just was able to purchase better weapons, which makes a big difference. One thing I hate is when you shoot a person, repeatedly, and they just go, "He shot me!" and then keep firing back like nothing happened. With zombies I get how they could keep coming, but not with humans. Other than that, I'm having a blast. There is just SO much to do, and I think it's pretty epic.

I keep forgetting I have this still sealed. I also bought it for $20 but with WoW, Animal Crossing, MLB 20, and the FF7 Remake, I haven’t had time.

I have this unopened too. Every time I read this thread it makes me want to get started.😀
I read a story the other day the person that did the voice for the main character passed away (not Covid) so he will sound different in the sequel that is planned.

That was the Portugese voice actor for the main character. https://bleedingcool.com/games/days-...s-passed-away/ The English voice actor is still alive and well.

It's really worth playing. Taking out hundreds of zombies by yourself is very thrilling. It's pretty scary though when you run up on a horde early on with low level weapons and stamina.

Any horde tips? I just saw my second but did not even try to take it on. I'm too afraid and I have no idea how to go about it.

Don't take on hordes until you have access to grenades, dynamite, and napalm moltovs. Throw them from bushes so you're concealed. And also, know that you don't have to take on a horde at once. You can chip away at a horde and run away, gather new supplies, and go at it again: the number of zombies in a horde doesn't reset.

Excellent, thanks. I feel like I'm fairly far in but still have none of those things, so I'll continue to slink away quietly for now...

Make sure you keep your bike always pointed away from the horde so you can jump on it quickly and drive away. I died several times because I couldn't get on my bike and get the hell out of there fast enough. Every second counts when that horde is on your ass.

I would make sure you concentrate on building up stamina when you use Nero injectors. It really helps being able to run ahead of the horde, turn around and shoot a couple down and then start running or rolling to get ahead of them again and rinse and repeat. Try to max out Stamina and Focus. There are a couple small hordes that you could probably take out in the beginning areas with a few of the guns from Tucker's camp.

NICE, thanks. I have not used Nero injectors yet but I will keep upping stamina and focus. I just added the skill where you get stamina for each melee kill, but I'm not sure how effective melee is w/a horde.

You should go around and try to clear out the Nero checkpoints that way you can fast travel to them and increase your Stamina, Focus, and Health. There are also supplies there that you can use for crafting bandages and explosives.
