So I jumped on BL2 during the steam sale and don't have the DLC yet but plan on buying it soon. I am close to beating the game but had a question on what to do when I do after the final story mission. Should I do the all DLC before attempting True Vault Hunter mode? Seeing as not all the DLC is currently out yet that might take a long wait. I really want to start another character but should I wait till after I beat TVHM?
The reason for my concern is because if I proceed with a TVHM playthrough, I read on the IGN guide that in order to get all the level 50 rewards from quests I should not do any side missions during True Vault Hunter mode until I complete a mission called "You. Die. Seriously" which makes all the sidequests level 50 automatically.
I understand the game gets much harder in TVHM and so far I haven't had much trouble in my first playthrough. Am I over thinking this or should I just play though all the DLC then start a new character and wait for the last DLC before doing a TVHM?
Why is anyone surprised by this. Lego already makes Marvel Super Hero lego sets for the Avengers movie.
So far from what I've played I have enjoyed the game. Its not as good as Lego POTC, but fun nonetheless. But there is some serious issues with the game. The frame rate is horrendous at times especially when trying to rotate the camera. And recently after finally getting my fellowship I have had nonstop lockups. Just walking along, switching characters, loading a cutscene.... the game locks up nearly every 5-10 minutes. I thought it might be because I am using a launch 60gb fat PS3 but I loaded up some other games I own and experience no issues. Google-ing this issue it seems I am not the only one having issues.
I really wanted to enjoy this game but so far it has been mostly frustation. Technical issues aside another annoying thing is that you can no longer change characters on the fly in the hub worlds. Or at least I haven't figured out how to swap out unlocked characters. The platforming is still very frustarting when you have to make precise jumps and the voice acting just seems a bit out of place. The combat is still button mashy but enemies will parry you more often. Some of the puzzles had me scratching my head looking for missing pieces that were somehow already in my inventory without the game letting me know I picked it up.
Unfortunately I am going to wait and see if Travellers Tales releases a patch before I try playing again.
I know that Vinny loves the DragonBall anime and games and Brad is the resident Anime editor so is there a chance we will get a quick look even if they do it out of irony? I know they have a distaste for musou games but this one from the trailers at least looks to be a bit more interesting than the average Dynasty Warriors game. Maybe its just the fanboi in me but I would like to see this game get a little more love in hopes the eventual sequel makes it over here as well. This would have been a day one purchase for me had it not been the fact it was not available disc based. I will wait and see how the import prices settle down before I get this.
For those interested in a disc based version, there is a CAG thread that has links to the European releases. The menus are in English and the disc is region free but the storefronts selling the game appear to be a bit shady based on comments on the thread. The german special edition comes with a 19cm replica of the Thousand Sunny which almost would make it worth it for me... http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=325162
I listened to all three books and The Hobbit via audio book read by Robert Englis. It made the experience much more enjoyable cause he had a soothing british accent and he was able to do characterizations of all the voices resonably well. So I didn't mind the extra long background stuff cause I had already seen the movies several times now (and played LOTRO) and wanted to know more backstory. It was like listening to a serial radio play every day at work. But I do agree that early parts of the Fellowship were tedious and could have been put in one of the appendixes.
