    yeah, we covered that last night :P...but is now like 3 pages back!

    and on that wall, it does indeed work...the question raised was...is it supposed to, and are there more!

    lets be honest it would be just like Miyazaki to troll us like that😂

    Where is the wall in question?

    Can you give me a hint regarding the thiefs location (north, south of the telescope)? I spent ages going round in circles in the area but only encountered a boss fight (which looked to be an unrelated night time event i stumbled into). 

    Spoiler

    North north west. Look in the telescope and you’ll see a single run down shack on its own. 

     

  3. Had a quick 20 minute blast last night. I’m up to Altus h it it’s been bugging me that I hadn’t caught the swine while stole the lady’s jewellery in Liurnia. 
     

    went back, looked through the telescope and spied where I thought he’d be. I wasnt able to reach a cordial agreement with him so had a scrap with my newly acquired twin blade. Loved it. 
     

    then warped for my first go at Radhan. I’d barely spotted him before he killed me. Might explore for a while first.

    I found Patches so much later than I should in this that I accidentally murdered him. Oops.

     

    He nearly killed me when i met him - i had a sliver of health left. I would've had to log off from Soulsborne games in shame forever.

    Thanks sir. I've now managed to get the Uchi and the Twinblade. Haven't tried the Uchi yet but the twinblade is great fun

    I'm a bit gutted - i got to the boss but used my summon without thinking. They destroyed him quickly. He looked like he would've been great fun to duel too. Ah well, NG soon enough!

    Elden Ring is excellent in every way -  But it is a fantasy game  and a bit Wizardy  :)

     

    Red Dead Redemption is still my favourite game ever. That just kept going and going..and going... and going.

    Not specifically open world as such. But still my masterpiece.

     

    The end section of Red Dead Redemption is amazing.

     

    Elden Ring is very close behind it.  Maybe as i play through it it may take over?  (  about 30 hours in ) 

     

     

     

    I think gaming context matters hugely here too. For me, Red Dead Redemption was affected by the fact that i'd completed Fallout 3 just before it releasing. This meant i was underwhelmed at the interactivity of the world - most buildings be eye candy rather than mini dungeons, few sidequests etc. I did compelte and really enjoy it though.

     

    Same with The Witcher 3 - i played that after compelting Dark Souls (finally) and the combat was constantly annoying. I still meant o go back to this though - i just got sidetracked by IRL after about 30 hours.

    You can't really talk about GTAV without talking about the online.

     

    The possibilities it offers in terms of social interaction, emergent gameplay, and non-traditional gameplay loops are pretty much unlike any other game, which is why it's still so incredibly popular.

     

    Elden Ring is an open-world soulslike, which is something very narrow and specific in comparison.

     

    The whole question is silly really.

    Fair enough - I’ve only ever played GTA online briefly. I’ve never really got on with the :D GTA games - the controls are too unwieldy imo. Exercise in frustration

  8. Thing with GTAV is that your travels from one point to another are just a full drive 99% of the time. 
     

    what Elden Ring gets right more than any other game since Far Cry 2 is the threat factor. In FC2 you had to plan every journey as you knew you might come under attack at some point (random or outposts/hotspots). Same in Elden Ring - you can be dragged into combat and killed at any point so few journeys are full or repetitive. 

  9. Managed to get to Altus yesterday. Found a catacombs - boss battered me. Found a cave - boss battered me. Found a path - boss battered me. Need to jump on my horse and Suicide run the place to open up the map points. 
     

    One strange quirk was that I changed my summon from jellyfish to Lucaria Soldiers and it just stopped working. Need to look into that later.

    No if you want a katana get the uchigatana it’s in a catacomb in limgrave. Later you can get an even better non magic katana if you follow the bloody finger quest line. The two i mention don’t need any int or faith investment and you can make them keen heavy or quality depending on preference 

    Wait, there’s an uchi I’ve missed in bloody Limgrave???

    I think I came across it in a mine somewhere and moped out fast. Could you spoiler post where it is?
