Currently playing it, and I'm enjoying it. Does have the lighting effects problems, so I disabled Shadows and also disabled High Contrast. I'm surprised this wasn't noticed at the latest, in the Beta version.

Running around seems like molasses but then again, I've been playing ESO for 7+ years so could be just me.

Like others have said, getting immersed into the story is exciting (you can't get "immersed" in ESO quests as they have been dumbed-down so much over the years). Graphics are great, and I'm only at level 9, but I'm enjoying taking my time.

EDIT: Currently @ Level 16. Oh yeah, baby.

Finally made it back into this game this weekend and last. Now 16 hours in, Lvl 18. Having fun with it. Now in the Open World gameplay loop where they’re plenty to do and just trying to decide what to do next.
Had a fairly hilarious “glitch” in the Helm quest. I was supposed to infiltrate the bandit camp and kill everyone. But when I got there, I found that they were all preoccupied with fighting a forest troll. I turned invisible and watched as the Troll took everyone out. Then still cloaked, I grabbed the helm. A boss showed up to protect the Helm, but sure enough, the troll made short work of her and her henchmen. Then, still cloaked, I fast traveled back to end the mission. Easy-Peasy

I finished it this weekend at about 50 hours. I had been doing all the collectible and open world stuff but once I opened up the second giant part of the map I just focused on getting the story wrapped up and then later in slower times I'll go back for side stuff and collectible wrap-ups. I found the story overall to just be average but everything else was great and I loved it overall. Can't imagine this not being in my top ten of these year.

This isn't coming out on Switch until November 9 months after the Xbox, PC, and PS5 releases.

Man this game will run so poorly on the Switch. . Honestly it's remarkable that it will be playable at all.

Finished it at around 43 hours. Loved it but it did drag on a bit at the end with respect to the side missions and trials, etc. I quickly let those go about 35 hours in and focused on the main missions. Can't wait for the sequel.

btw, this game did a lot of things right that developers need to borrow from --- first and foremost being a "guide" whereby that book shows you the path to take to get to your destination. Jedi Survivor could learn a lot from that. The two things that bothered me the most was petting cats for no apparent reason and when you went indoors, your character walked like it was in molasses. I couldn't stand the controls indoors.

never understood why its so slow inside, annoying for sure. Ghosts of Tsushima had a similar bit, where you slick up on the pad, and the wind blows in the general direction of your destination. i love things like this, because it keeps your eyes on the main screen and not staring at a minimap.

Best selling game in the US in 2023. Call of Duty has had that title basically all to itself for over a decade. Pretty amazing considering it being a open world adventure game and the controversy with the author of the source material.

A year later... Yay?

Oh... more than a year later:

As we near the one-year anniversary of Hogwarts Legacy, we wanted to let our community know that the Hogwarts Legacy PlayStation-exclusive content will be available on other platforms later this summer, along with additional updates and features for the game. Stay tuned in the coming months for more details on what’s coming to Hogwarts Legacy this year.

There must be an exclusivity contract of 18 months.

I just realized I never found this exclusive Quest at all.

Unlike a lot of exclusive quests this one was one of the best and most involved quests in the game.

Re: Hogwarts Legacy - 2/10/23 (Xbox, PS, Steam)

I finally started this over the weekend. I'm about six hours in and my first impressions are the world is huge. Hogwarts is enormous. I would get really lost without being able to track with waypoints. I also didn't figure out that you could fast travel from anywhere until the end of the play through yesterday. I kept trying to walk up to the floo flames to fast travel until I finally figured it out. I'm finding combat a little clunky, but hopefully it will get better. I keep forgetting to tap for basic casts and I keep holding the trigger down.

I felt the opposite. I couldn't wait for it to be over once I got stuck doing it.

I played some more last night and this morning. I unlocked flying and the room of requirement. I'm struggling with money right now. Everything for the room is expensive. There's so many side quests popping up and I want to do them all. It's a bit overwhelming.
