I've been playing this game solo the past few days and I'm having a lot of fun. I'm WT6 right now and I just beat the volcano boss in one shot. I have the WT set to the highest one available but if I ever feel the game starts getting too tough I will lower the WT difficulty. I'm in this for the gameplay, story and world building, I don't care too much for the grind or the loot.

You like the story? At a certain point I just stopped paying attention. I thought the story was sloppy at best. Just IMO

Well I haven't finished the game but so far it's keeping my attention. I'm a big sucker for sci-fi stuff, traveling to other planets and exploring alien worlds. Plus I'm intrigued by what causes the anomaly and how altered beings come to be. I just finished the mountain part and I'm heading to the forest. But yeah I'm enjoying the story.

I'll say that the conclusion of the story was pretty disappointing for me. I was quite engaged with it up until the last act. But I do enjoy the shooting and gibbing, so I kept playing up until the end. I only just did 1 expedition solo, it was okay. Massive waves of enemies really kept me on my feet. I'm definitely coming back to this game sometime in the future, try out different classes and collecting those legendaries, but now, Divinity Original Sin 2 awaits.

The intro was so slow and mundane that by the time the actual game started I was already pissed off and had pretty much stopped caring about any of the characters, including my own. I pushed through until the first boss where I died a couple of times, no big deal, apart from losing world XP each time. Fuck that, I refuse to play any game that takes XP away when you die. Uninstalled.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

I really liked this game at first, and the story had massive promise.

Unfortunately, it got way too stale way too soon and become a massive slog. Was a massive chore to finish - which I did at max level and with all unique gear after finishing all the side quests. Dumb shooting fun was to be had occasionally, but this this turned into a game where I simply had to turn my brain off to enjoy it. The end of the story was disappointing which made the whole thing feel kinda pointless.

Game was a fun one-and-done experience for me, played as pyromancer and it was a lot of fun, tried other classes and it just didn't click for me

My achievements are glitched. Have killed over 3500 enemies but achievement won’t pop. Fucker.

I picked Outriders back up once they fixed the bugs and am really enjoying my pyromancer.

The game is keeping my attention too from a story perspective. Gameplay is repetitive though which is too bad.

This is on sale for PS right now. Is there a healthy user base still?

Not sure. I only play single player.

Stumbled across this game due to seeing news about a recent update. I forgot this game existed. Tried the demo and was immediately intrigued. Bought the game the next day.

It’s been about a week and I haven’t played anything but this. I believe I am almost finished with the campaign. I’ve been leaving the world level at maximum (currently 11), so I suspect that slows down progress. Even setting the WL down just 2 levels makes most enemies die in one shotgun blast.

This is my only real gripe with the game. The difficultly strictly comes from insane HP level. This ruins much of the Trickster fun, as I rely on kills to generate shield. Virtually every battle has me running out of ammo. I’ve had to adjust my build to maximize my own capability to generate and keep shield as well as conserve ammo.

The multiplayer has worked well for me. I always have random people joining my games and the game is much more fun when you have teammates.

Bought the retail PS5 game at half price and it is well worth it. It feels similar to Destiny, and I’ve always wanted to relive that experience. This game clearly does not have legs, and I don’t expect to play much after completing the campaign. That’s fine. Not every game needs to be a live service.

I think I'm at the last boss and have died 20+ times. I have a psychological block against lowering the world tier to just get through it though.

Very fun game and kept me hooked, but the cut scenes get progressively worse to the point that my special lady saw one and gave me a look like "WTF are you doing?"

Just lower it. I went the entire game at max WL, ending at 12. The final battle was just an endurance round. No challenge, just holding the fire button, rolling around, and running to the ammo dump over and over. You don’t even get any loot from what I can tell. I got bored of the fight and lowered it to WL3 (“normal”).

I did expeditions for a day, but it’s ridiculous. After a dozen, I received one legendary that I won’t even use. Maybe it would be fun with a tight crew that worked together, but with random players, it’s just tedious.

That said, I had a fun night restarting the game as a different class!

Ok, I went down to easy and beat last boss. I feel kind of bad. I enjoyed it overall but don't think I'm going to play through again w a new class.

The endgame starts with expeditions. Tier 15 is where the good loot is dropping.
