    Start sticking adverts all over real life things for a couple of days and it'll be less noticeable once you go back to it.👍

    Yeah I got the two by the cabin but then fell down trying to get the main group.

    @Hendo no the 4th character is after that, you're in the right area. The boat area needs you to save a lot and try to avoid the middle group. If you head to the right of them (there's some steps leading to a cabin) there's enough gap behind their alert ring to get a single character at a time behind them, then 2 enemies who can be taken out on their own if you get the time right (you can then take out one of the people at the cabin from where you are with the high ground if you get lucky too)

    Mutant Year Zero : Road To Eden

    The boat area is where I got to, so seeing as I haven’t got a fourth character, maybe I went to the wrong place. The quest line says to go to the top north which also suggests it’s a much higher level than my crew, so I’m not sure where I should be going.

    Mutant Year Zero : Road To Eden

    I've unlocked a 4th character now, you can only use 3 in battle though. They're the first character that's felt really different, Borman is a bit more like a tank I guess but the other two I use interchangeably. On paper the worst character is probably Dux (Dex?) but he's my go to, I might have to bite the bullet and drop him though, I want to turn him in to a sniper but he has a habit of missing 75% shots Famous last words but I've not been beaten on the mainline route yet, I did take a detour to a crashed plane where I got fucked up and reloaded, even that was partly my fault. I'm playing on normal, I've been quick travelling back to town a decent amount to improve my guns. The shop is shit, I've ended up buying the pipe rifle she has just in the hopes she replaces it with something better It really pays off to get enemies on their own, try to reduce numbers. My last fight was against 3 enemies, all stronger than me, but I managed to take the pyro guy out in the first turn, then had to move 2 people to high ground so they didn't get flanked, which meant they were harder to hit and could get crits on the lead enemy, with Borman on the ground shotgunning him in the face, while his minion had gone the long way around. The boat area looks a nightmare when you get to it. If you can get behind the group you can pick a couple of people off without alerting anyone. Once they're done it seems to trigger a route change for some of the main group so you can whittle them down too

    The Hot Topic

    I don't think I really have much loyalty to brands in video games. I don't currently have any consoles. I had all 3 consoles last gen, and initially preferred Xbox 360's interface and friend management features, but had pretty much abandoned it a couple of years before the Xbox One was announced, I had already decided I didn't like the direction MS had been going in the couple of years proceeding that. I'm not 'loyal' to franchises or series either. I stopped playing COD games ages ago. I played 1, 2, Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 and was satisfied with that. Battlefield 3 was the last one I bought in that series. I played a Forza game (Forza Horizon 4) this year, and that was the first time I've tried one since Forza Motorsport 4 .

    Ah, I think both Baldur’s Gate games are brilliant. I would probably rank them above Planescape.

    It's all kind of a spectrum I think. Mass Effect started out with a strong RPG focus then became less RPG and more of a shooter with dialogue trees Radiofloyd I haven't played Baldurs Gate yet. I have all the infinity engine games but not got around to them all yet The laptop I have now has a horrible screen and is all busted up so it might be a while until I get on it

    @one-armed dwarf I really like Planescape too but do you prefer it to both Baldur’s Gate games?

    None of the genre names really mean anything anymore. I mean look at Breath of the Wild. It’s an open world, survival, action RPG, action adventure game that’s also a bit loot driven At the end of the day you have to trust the answer in your heart. And mine is saying you’re all wrong

    Sorry @spatular, the RPG police have spoken. Redo your list or go to prison. We really do need a definitive caregory to put Zelda in though.

    The edges blur with a lot of that stuff. God of War has some RPG systems in there but with that stuff you kind of have to take a step back and ask if it's a system fundamental to the overall design or if it's just kind of thrown in there. With GoW I think it's just thrown in there. I actually think the RPG stuff in GoW 2018 weakens the game and hamstrings some of the combat stuff in it. Cause it's not always easy to tell if something is designed to require investment in player skill or in making the numbers big enough to make the threat go away Although I'm a big JRPG weeb I'd argue that the western take on RPG is a truer form of the genre cause they apply it to more than just making your characters stronger. Planescape Torment made me try out DnD for real and I briefly tried to get into reading fantasy. Neither worked out but I think that's the best RPG I've ever played.

    I personally don't think Zelda is an rpg but the term is confused and vague as fuck. By either of the definitions posted in here either old or new God of War is an rpg, but I don't think any of us really believe it is I'd argue Yakuza is an rpg though. It's got leveling, skills, gear, encounters

    Way I see it RPG is anything with strong roots in tabletop dice-rolling RPG. Which means equipment, specialities (magic, close-quarters combat, NPC interactions using charisma or wisdom etc) and decision making. Zelda has some shared DNA but its more an offshoot of other RPG stuff. The dice-rolling isn't in there. As Maf said you've not got much control over what your player character does or become either in how he reacts to stuff or what he specialises in which is an essential facet of how DnD and its descendents operate. You find new equipment in Zelda but you always find the same new equipment. There's no player agency, it would be more like the DM always telling you what to do and what your role is. You don't decide that you want the boomerang or the ocarina, you just take it and shut up.
