Immortals Fenyx Rising

Main game seems to be $25 everywhere this week too.

Not complaining about the quick price drops because I got a PS5 game for $30 in Dec. But it's such a great game I don't understand the quick drop.

I restored all 4 gods last week, so could have probably beat it this weekend? Easy to get distracted with so many things on the map.

I just rebought it for the PS5 because I was looking for something to play on it that would be pretty. I originally played on Stadia but got distracted.

I am really enjoying it. All the exploration of Assassin's Creed with a much more light hearted tone.

Finally hit point of no return. Wish it had been before that big story beat. I feel like a jerk running off and finishing a couple puzzles now but I have to. So close.

Maybe I'll finish this week.

And finished. Got the 100% of Hermes quests, and a couple other trophies before the end. Since I got everything (except potions) maxed, and several extra levels (+10 stamina, +2 health, +9 on both sets of powers, +1 on weapon/armor), the end fight was laughably easy. Nice to see a little twist in the Zeus and Prometheus story at the end. Ending cutscene was cool, especially the Phospor bit.

As for the trophies... some are silly, cutting down 100 trees, finding every mount. Once I have a legendary mount, what do I need with 10 other mounts? Bah. And somehow I missed gods side quest trophy. But I felt like I did a quest for each of them and talked to everyone, but never got another quest? Maybe sometime I'll chase the other trophies? Or get the DLC. I don't know. Game was a lot of fun, but I think hunting down a bunch of minor trophies will be less fun.

Just bought this today, half price on the UBI store and another 20% for 100 U coins or whatever they are. £20 seems pretty god to me!

Anyone have thoughts on the dlc?

I don't fancy $40 for a season pass. I'll get to it someday on sale for $10-15 and play NG+ and/or trophy hunt a couple years from now.

The first DLC is just puzzle dungeons, not really much story beyond just "doing said challenges for the gods in Olympus", and it's a separate thing that involves no progress form the main game and you don't carry over any progress (it's unnecessary). If you REALLY like the challenge dungeons then they're quite fun, but otherwise it's not really essential.

Haven't got the new one yet. I've uninstalled the game for now so i'll probably come back to it later if there's a sale or something.

oh wait, there's also no female option in the new DLC so...f*ck that in the bin then.

Well crap. I loved that game, but the DLC has proved to be very underwhelming. Having been burned before by past Ubisoft DLC, I"m glad I just stuck with the base game.

Yeah the only potential DLC that seemed fun was the upcoming China based one. The rest seemed, even in the trailer, meh to bleh.

WTF?!? The character options was one of the best parts?

Apparently the new DLC was made by one of Ubisoft's Chinese studios, which is neat.

I enjoyed Fenxy for about 15 hours and then lost interest. A good 15 hours.

That's more the fair. The game can get a little middling in the eh middle. Although some of the dialogue is a highlight but that can be watched in youtube.
