I finished playing through Immortals: Fenyx Rising, it was entertaining but relatively short.  Now I'm trying my hand at ACV.  Never played a game like this before (my gaming experience is pretty limited).  I have it on pretty much the easiest setting and it's still kind of tough.  I'm having a lot of trouble getting through the first battles.  I think I need to get up to speed with the fighting style and dynamics, it seems very different than what I'm used to, which pretty much amounts to BOTW and Immortals.  The fighting in those games was pretty easy.  Otherwise the game seems pretty cool.

That's my problem.  I'm not used to this extra skill level required beyond button mashing.  Maybe once my character gets more armor and better weapons I'll be able to revert to button mashing but if I have to respawn 10 times every time there's a battle I'm not going to be playing this game very long.

These battles where every random schlub only needs two hits to kill you and send you back to the beginning of a five minute battle, while you need 10 hits to kill any one of them and there are 50 of them, is kind of ridiculous.

I don’t know if i can do this thing where getting killed wipes out 15 or 20 minutes of gameplay and they don’t allow you to save your game during a raid.

Valheim, bro. Get the wood, the stone, the axe, the meat, the trophy bucks, the skins, the leather, the antlers, the ore, the jangle and tame a world.

I spent 2 hours trying to complete this raid and then realized it was in a territory that’s meant to be explored much later in the game. Doh!

I'm kinda committed to this game.  For one, I don't buy games very often so I'd like to get through it before I buy something else.  I'm kind of getting the hang of the fighting.  I fought one boss dude for a solid hour last night, finally bested him after like 50 tries, many of which lasted less than 10 seconds.  Overall I'm definitely bought in now.

Once you get to a "power" level of about 200 then you're pretty much an unstoppable slaughtering machine.  It's pretty fun now.

I'm playing this right now... dragged ass on my One X, very different feel on the Series X.

I'll get this if it ever goes to console.

I really like the historical accuracy that they go for in the game.  Apparently, this is a "thing" for AC games.  This is the first one I've played.  It's got me down a rabbit hole of youtube documentaries on the viking invasion of England, Roman England, Dark ages England, etc.  Now that I've seen a lot of these documentaries it's crazy how many little historical Easter Eggs there are in the game.

So how far along are you? I'm not sure exalt how far I am actually, but been playing a good bit lately. It was hard in the beginning, but I've built up power pretty good.
