Ghost of Tsushima Catch All


I bought the Director’s Cut and jumped back in, and am enjoying this game all over again. I’m at the start of Act 2.

I haven’t tried the new island yet, and it took some time to dust off the cobwebs — with a lot of embarrassing standoff fails and accidental smoke bombs in the meantime — but I’m appreciating its beauty and combat, even if it makes my PS4 sound like a jet plane.

One feature I’d like is saved loadouts, as I tend to switch up all my armour and charms depending on whether I’m going in stealthy, ranged or melee.

Yep. It’s just not on by default. You have to enable loadouts from the options menu.

Awesome, thank you beanman101283 and Vypre!

I missed this first time around. It's awesome!

Used the loadout function last night. It feels a bit cheeky to switch armours in the middle of a fight, but it's very handy. I've got the Gosaku 'stagger' armour (with the awesome white hair helmet) and have stacked 3 bludgeoning stagger charms on it to become the lord of stagger.

Finished Iki’s central story line last night - it was a lot shorter than I expected. I believe there were only 5 or 6 missions, or at least it felt that way. Usually I feel motivated to dislike a primary antagonist, but I never really got to feeling one way or the other about her. I get that she was a Mongol and thus, “our enemy”, but outside the final duel, she barely ever felt any more significant than any of the other Mongols to fall to our blade.

Anyway, its more Ghost and I’ve enjoyed getting back in. And I still have at least a few more side missions and quite a bit more exploration to do. So, I’m enjoying it - the story just felt a bit thin and rushed.

I have a PS4 and the base game. Am I right in thinking I can’t download the director’s cut?

I was able to download something called ‘bonus content’ for free.

You'll need to pay $20 to upgrade to the Director's Cut. It's kind of a mess with the options, bonus content, and naming, but essentially it's a DLC expansion.

Weird it said ‘unavailable’ for me

Ah hang on there’s multiple versions of it. Found it now. What a mess.

I bought myself the ‘director’s cut’ for Christmas. Loving every aspect so far.

I keep hoping to get this on PC!

Glad I came in here. I bought the PS5 director's cut on Black Friday and just completed Act 1 this morning, but not knowing the details of course I left everything in the options menu on the default setting. This could be helpful going forward.

I don't think I would say I love every aspect like Higgledy. Some parts I find downright annoying, although some parts I wish other games would do. But I'm this far and want to keep going which is a very good sign because it's more common for me to bounce off open world games about 10-15 hours in once I feel like I've seen every trick.

There is a chance I’ll suddenly find myself exiting the honeymoon period and the game will start to feel to repetitive but if an open world can get enough right in terms of the fantasy it’s selling me, the minute to minute gameplay and the visuals then I’ll just enjoy existing in that world and any amount of repetition in objectives won’t bother me.

I’ve done a write up for what you’re playing this weekend as well.

I've made some videos of me getting into fun fights around Tsushima. Low quality as ever.

As much as anything I'm quite pleased with the thumbnails I came up with.

Nice. I will watch them over lunch.

So. A question I’ve been mulling over. What are they going to call the sequel? Somehow it doesn’t seem right to call it Ghost of Tsushima 2 and have Jin (or someone else if Jin doesn’t survive) clear the island all over again. Equally it’d seem odd to set it somewhere else and call it Ghost of Tsushima. Ghost of Kyushu doesn’t seem right either.

Ghost of Tsushima 2: Tokyo Drift?

It’s the only sensible answer.

2 Ghost 2 Sekiro.

Ghost of Kyushu doesn’t sound bad to me. Or Ghost of… something. Like Horizon is just changing part of the name instead of adding a number.

Yeah, Ghost Of $PLACE is fine; Ghost Of Tsushima didn't have any resonance until it was a game, the same will be true of the sequel.

I thought Tsushima was a made up fake Japan when the game was first announced LOL.

Ghost of Twoshima.

Nailed it.

Ghost of Twoshima will feature a shift in tone as it focuses on the 1905 naval battle between Japan and Russia.
