How Zelda and Horizon fix open worlds in very different ways

strange-quark

1 year ago

A Lamborghini and a Yugo have essentially the same components , but offer vastly different experiences . Criticizing a game just for sharing elements with other games without regarding implementation seems unfair to me .
I'm having so much fun with HZD that I'm doing the quests when I end up in a quest area while exploring and hunting, I'm not going from quest to quest.

I was using the Pulse Elite , which I liked , but my girlfriend appropriated it to listen to internet radio . I think this will do nicely to replace the headset I'm using now , which has a swing out mike I've found not quite to my liking .

@verynaughtyboy Great idea , I think we need to start a petition . I can download +- 1GB in 10 hours , which means it'll take me more than 2 days to download this patch . So being able to pre-download day one patches would be a huge benifit to me . I'm sure I'm not the only person on the planet with slow internet , even though my case is probably slightly unusual .

The first time I played Doom was many years ago , while I was visiting my sister and her husband . I was playing on his laptop . After a while , my sister walked past me to the kitchen and started making tea . I asked her if i'd woken her up , she said no ,she's getting ready for work . I'd played through the night without noticing . I wonder how I'll do this time .

Can someone explain the appeal of the 'drivatar' to me,what's the point of having the a.i. drive for you,in a racing game?

Can I get the a.i. to do my fighting in a f2p f.p.s, I'll come back when everything is unlocked?

Is it purely there to do the grinding on your behalf,you play a bit,then let the drivatar run for however long it takes to get enough points to get what you want?
