And So It Begins….
I have started, my #YOLG journey is now underway. Yes I know its not 1st Dec yet but most of my fellow YOL’ers have started already so why not!
The first game I have played from my Dirty 30 list is Mad Max on the PS4. I had previously played this game but only for about 3 hours. I have just put another 3 hours into the game today and I am really enjoying it. Its an open world adventure style game in a similar vein to Shadow Of Mordor. The combat is the standard attack button with a counter prompt which appears above the enemy. If you counter in time you can parry their attack and strike a blow at them.
The game doesn’t really follow the recent move Mad Max: Fury Road but it appears to be set in the same sort of setting/universe. The map is quite large but is split into smaller segments, each segment having its own Stronghold you can upgrade and also has a threat level depending on how many enemy camps you have taken out. To level your character and car up you collect scrap. Scrap can be found in enemy camps and obtained by destroying enemy vehicles and looting enemy bodies.
The driving feels a little over sensitive and the camera is a tiny bit annoying when you need to turn quickly but this is just a minor gripe. To replenish your health you need to scavenge food, usually a tin of dog food yuck! Or you can drink water. You carry a canteen for your water which you can refill at various sources. The food has to be eaten where found and can’t be carried, well not yet anyway.
I will be jumping back into this game very soon and will give further progress reports as they happen.
