FWIW I disagree with a lot of your original points but I do agree on the map. Could definitely be better; I prefer function over form when it comes to maps.Oh I know Joe's reviews are to be taken with a grain of salt overall, and I agree he's a bit off point and nonsensical on a lot of his comments. I guess if I haven't missed those chests, I can live with the confusion, but I prefer maps and games that make such things more clear, as those are very valuable items. I DID get over my loathing for being inundated with puzzles during the early part of RE Village once I got familiar with the game. I guess this one is an acquired taste too.
BTW, one of Joe's failures that I couldn't believe was so hard for him was when he kept dying in The Evil Within. He was intent on doing a complete playthrough of it, but never finished it. I mean don't get me wrong, the game is challenging, just not insurmountable like he made it look. My point is I watch his stuff more for laughs than to hear his opinions. His stuff is a lot like what you see on Clueless Gamer, but at least Conan knows he sucks. Maybe I suck a bit for quoting Joe though. LOL
Yeah I realize most if not all of those other opinions were a matter of personal preference, but seriously, using the same three letters on EVERY locked chest? That makes it a simple matter of just looking until you find those same letters every time instead of actually solving any puzzle.FWIW I disagree with a lot of your original points but I do agree on the map.

Well I went back to them after doing the Light of Alfheim mission and stopping at the shop to finally swap out better armor and such. Atreus is also now equipped with the wolf call skill on his bow. It took a little over 6 min just the same, but I was mostly keeping my distance, making sure Atreus was firing enough shots to keep them focused on him, while I did some heavy axe tosses at them and my heavy frost slam attack. The main thing I hate about that fight is the limited amount of space you have to work with.Those things that come out of the portal are tough, but if you spam "F" it's very doable. Or you can just come back later when you are stronger, or just ignore them entirely. They are an optional challenge.
I noticed that in the traders' resources, and set out to get one right away. I found out that you're more likely to get a fox skin if you kill if from a far distance with a sharpshooter bow zoomed in.I didn't even know there was a golden travel pack until I was about 75% done with the main game. Travel packs are common treasure and easy to make - but I still went fox hunting as soon as I saw the buying requirements.
I just discovered the fire claw machine. It was mean to me. I think I might need to finally use whatever fire resist potions I've gotten over the course of the entire game.
Easy one. It's still stuck in the ground, so it can't move. Run/diving summersault around and you'll find a place where you can hide from the deathbringer's shots. Kill off most of the humans using stealth before waking the thing up.I just came upon my first Deathbringer in the quest where you try to learn about your mother at the ruins. I quit before fighting it. Wow! I'm not sure how I'm going to pull this off.
I did get past that first Deathbringer (in Horizon: Zero Dawn, for Brian ). It sure wasn't easy, though. I can't imagine fighting one at full power with legs. I guess I'll probably get a chance soon.Easy one. It's still stuck in the ground, so it can't move.

That was actually the second deathbringer I saw - but I didn't know what I was looking at with the first one.
You're right, I knew I messed up when I didn't do that. I edited it and color coded the title just to be clear.Folks, a request: Please mention the game you're posting about in the post, so future readers who find your post via a search engine won't be lost.
That's a good sized chip!I'm still chipping away at HZD. I just finished the part of the main quest where you save Meridian.
(Talking about HZD)That's a good sized chip!
Did you see the quest where some guy wants you to look into a bunch of miners who have vanished? They vanished in a big, flat area with some exploding barrels scattered around in it. Hmmm. Geee. I wonder what might happen when you go to the center of that place. Games often telegraph difficult fights, but that was outright funny!
