In case you missed it, Dying Light first came out January 27th 2015.

I didn’t give this as much love and hype as it deserved when it came out. Even I could have sworn I did a review for it when it first came out,  but nope.

There were already three DLCs added earlier (Cuisine and Cargo, Ultimate Survivor Bundle, & The Bozak Horde) but what I really want to talk about is The Following and this patch>>>

Key features listed on The Following-

  • NEW MAP | AS BIG AS DYING LIGHT
  • DRIVABLE VEHICLES | YOUR DEADLIEST WEAPON YET
  • NEW STORY | WHERE WILL THE OUTBREAK GO?
  • NON-LINEAR PROGRESSION | TRUST IS SOMETHING YOU EARN

Let me say,  for this game,  buy the season pass, it’s well worth it.

I’ll admit, when I first got this game.  I didn’t play this game long at all. Only because other things came out around the same time, no disrespect it.

So my save file wasn’t substantial at all.  I was well below the recommended level of 12. But since co-op is an option, I just hired a bodyguard. (ie Co-op with the husbando)

Yeah, help may be needed

The buggy and buggy upgrades are the best thing.

Be prepared to see this a bunch

Splattereffic!

There are also different paint jobs you can find around the map.

I haven’t found many so far, but as they said, it is a big map and there are over 40 to choose from.

Want something else to do? Try a race or other trial around the map.

Bonus info-Crossbow! Look at me, I’m Daryl

Wreck, loose it or get it stuck?

Just find one of these, reset it, and you’re good to go

It is super satisfying to run through a horde full force or just to do doughnuts in a field. And the sounds! The sounds are great.

Check out this video the guys put up about how they got the great effects.

These people really seem to care about their game.  All the additions and improvements, you can really tell.

The AI is better, new movements noticeable, facial features are enhanced. Which is really nice. Its always disappointing when a game has a long list of fixes that you can never really notice a change.

Another thing added that I really enjoy is the Post Process Effect Customization…(picture filters) while its not recommended that you play the game with one of these on (I tried, my  eyes freaked out fairly quickly) they are really great for capturing photos.

 

All this and I haven’t even really mentioned the story yet.

Wiki sum up-

“Protagonist Kyle Crane learns from a survivor that cultist groups living outside the infected-filled quarantined city of Harran have successfully controlled the virus. With the Tower running short on Antizin and Camden’s efforts to produce a cure still unsuccessful, Crane decides to go investigate this supposed immunity. He heads out to the countryside, where he discovers that many of the survivors out there have converted to a religious cult called the Children of the Sun, who worship the Mother which is apparently the source of their immunity to the virus”

Yeah, not weird at all. But so far so good with this story. Of course there the normal go here, go there, do this, do that. Although there is enough context and good characters to not mind. And of course zooming around on the buggy doesn’t hurt.

If you don’t happen to have the game already, do yourself a favor and get the Enhanced Edition.

$60.00 for the base game and the DLC that’s been released. Not bad at all.

So enjoy massacring zombies…and while were on the subject, hopefully you’ve been watching this-

Zombies, Dune Buggies, and Dismemberment galore!

Destiny has always been filled with high hopes and equally high disappointments.

She looks pisssssssed

We are not amused

But for the first time in a long time I can say hype has been met with actual fulfillment.

Things included

  • new social space
  • new weapons and gear
  • level raised to 34
  • new story
  • 3 new multiplayer arenas
  • new strike
  • Prison of Elders
  • Trials of Osiris

Ok so we begin finally being allowed to the Reef. Which is awesome because I always liked the look of the place. I’m not going to divulge too too much finer details but I will say I was happy with just about everything.

The new social space is pretty and comes complete with some ghosts, a vault, mailbox, new cryptarch, bounty girl Petra, and the awesome fallen guy who serves as a translator and Prison of Elders dealer.

This guy is hilarious

The story here is that the queens pets betray her and are now going around getting other allies and weapons. (ok its a bit more complicated than that but for a sum up, that explanation will suffice)

In this story you get to go to some pretty surprising and interesting places.

My first play through with my titan I got a good amount of loot. And everyone gets this little pistol which is decently badass.

The new bounties are fun as well.

Simple guide for that-

  1. go to planet
  2. wait for wolves to prowl
  3. attack
  4. wait for more drop ships
  5. attack and kill big boss
  6. get ether key
  7. go find chest

Yeah, there has been a few times I didn’t find the chest in times and a few other times I was able to find chest, leave area, come back and get the chest again. So my best advice for this is look for the pillar of light or watch others around and hope they know where to go.

Now bouncing planet to planet doing story missions and bounties is fun but for me the real winner here is the Prison of Elders. Arena style fight with you and your fireteam facing 3 waves of random enemies for 5 rounds.

Each round is in a different environment with different enemies and the final round you face a larger boss. The level look pretty great and come equipped with nice hiding areas which you may or may not need.

At the end you go back to you starting room and are dropped down into a Scrooge McDuck like vault.

Sorry for the poor pic

Now your first run though you were given a key for the big chest, but from then on out its up to you to find more keys via the other chest you open with the ether keys during bounties.

What did I get my first run you ask-

...I'll just leave this here

…I’ll just leave this here

See, I can’t gloat any because my husband has been trying for a lot longer (and with more skill) than me to get this.

I was just randomly opening chest and not even really paying attention to when it popped up what I had gotten.

But I did in fact get a Jellyhorn.

Ah yes, the rng god is a cruel mistress.

But anyway the new so far has been great and I love seeing new color choices. Even the old venders have new stuff. Like really, at ever turn there has been something cool to find.

So it doesn’t seem like I’m sucking up too much I will say I did have some disappointments. To have to deal with the queens people and not the Queen and her creepy brother themselves was kind of a let down. And as always DLC doesn’t add anymore voice over work for your ghost. I ❤ Peter Dinklage, I just wish more went into his character.

So my point is this-If you liked Destiny when it first came out but then got bored and gave up, its time to go back!

$20 is not very expensive to expand the game this much and to get this much more enjoyment out of it.

So go, go and find more enjoyment in a game you bought half a year ago.

GG!
