Agreed, these two updates have really improved the game, and I also enjoyed it a lot from the beginning. My home planet isn't great for the buggy, it's mostly water with hilly islands. Gotta find a new home world to screw around with the different exocrafts. They've really improved all of the visuals, it's starting to look a lot more like the early trailers though I doubt they'll ever get there completely.

now I'm into Nioh! It took awhile but I really like the combat, maybe more than the other Souls games besides Bloodborne. I'm on the second boss, and she's fucking tough. I'm still a little confused on when to use ki pulse perfectly...but other than that I'm doing well with it.

Cannot put down Horizon Zero Dawn at the moment. It feels so dam satisfying to kill the dinos in that game, and getting completely owned sometimes in the process. The side quests can be a bit repetitive, but they are still fun to do even if most of them are similar. Need one more power cell to get the Shield Weaver armor. Man, it looks so sexy and is op as hell.

Oh, that second boss is tough... you need to have light armor Imo to really dodge her attacks... having a co-op companion on that one really helps... hopefully you're at the "secret" shrine that you need to drop down onto... from there you can quick-run right to the boss over and over again if you need to get the hang of her.

BTW: The right time to do the Ki Pulse is pretty much exactly when you see the blue sparkles start to swirl around you. It's actually a pretty big window. One way to know with certainty that you're doing it right (and it's a good skill to pick up anyway, in my opinion) is the low-stance skill for two-handed sword that gives you a bonus to your attack if you time it right.
If you timed the ki pulse right/perfectly, you'll see a buff icon appear under your life bar after doing it in low stance (after buying the skill)
I picked this up, but I need to finish some other games I have in my backlog. There was a period of time there where it felt like there was nothing to play... Now I've got Nioh (almost done), I still need to finish off FFXV's end content (zzzzzzzz.... why am I doing this?), Yakuza 0, Tales of Berseria, Dark Souls III DLC is incoming, Horizon Zero Dawn, I want to grab Nier Automata but I'm not letting myself buy it until other stuff is done, For Honor, Valkyria Chronicles remaster, Ys Origins remaster, Rush of Blood, Resident Evil 7, Eve Valkyrie VR, Final Fantasy Type-o, The Last Guardian, Witcher 3... fuck I still have to finish I am Setsuna and Alien Isolation

Yea, my problem with buying games recently is to get them immediately, and ask questions later. I am a pretty avid Destiny player, but with the recent and predictable winter content drought, I have been able to hop onto most of my backlog lately. I am still going through Mortal Kombat XL, Diablo III, Final Fantasy XV, and Doom; and not to mention the backlog of indie games I want to get to as well. Horizon has seemed to make me derail my goal pretty well this past week. I'm not even touching Nioh, The Last Guardian, or Nier Automata until I at least finish the rest I listed above. Alien Isolation was a fucking treat, I was able to almost 100% the entire game in about a month since I had the time to do so.

Shovel Knight, beautiful game but wow it's hard as balls.. I'm only through the intro stage and Pridemoor Keep, died like 30 times at least lol
Haven't played a game like this in a while (besides emulating some NES classics and what not of course)
Definitely one of those games where you have to catch your breath after every stage you beat. I always feel just after I've successfully destroyed a boss that I'm gonna fumble and fuck something up cause my nerves are all over the place from too much adrenaline and euphoria. Damn gamer jitters... and It's like fuck can i just stop over-anticipating something happening and then jumping too soon or not hitting something at the right time...? jeeezus.
Love that this is getting free DLC, i got this game just in time for all of that it seems.

That retro-hard old school genre is making a comeback... Check out Volgarr the Viking and Cursed Castilla. Great stuff.

Since I love open world games (I've spent more time playing the Fallout series than any other series, ever) I am all over the new Zelda. Basically whenever my fiance isn't playing it, and I'm not working/sleeping, I'm playing it.

Enter the Gungeon, Broforce, and Not A Hero are all fantastic for what they are as well.

, thanks for the help! So you can achieve ki pulse anytime when the blue particles show up? Or is there a particular (perfect) time when you should hit R1?
I usually only play on the weekends due to time, but I'll add you anyway. Thanks!

The sparkles will swirl out around you and make a sound. If you time it right (and there's a big window, if I miss it, it's usually because I hit it too early) there will be a sort of flash and a sound effect as the sparkles swirl in towards you... if you do it perfectly, there's also a kind of ghost shadow of yourself in the animations for a moment there...
