I’m about 2 hours into KH3 and just fought the rock Titan. I don’t think I like this game. The cutscene pacing is terrible and the combat is not fun. Does anyone know if the game just gets good at some point?

I got access to the Divsion 2 private beta (I'm not sure how since I didn't pre-order).

I was hit a few of the issue that the original had when it first came out... waiting in queue and disconnection errors. Outside of that, it feels very similar to the original, but a few things stood out. First, the enemies weren't so one dimensional, and I didn't know where they were at all times, so I was flanked a few times. Switching weapons with the mouse wheel was backwards compared to the first (rather than scrolling down move to the next weapon, you had to scroll up). I just updated my drivers a week ago, so maybe they need updating, but I was only pulling between 60 and 70 fps for the most part (on a 1080ti). Lastly, and not really related to anything, the guy in charge at the white house reminded me a lot of Devron Kay (sp?) from Destiny 2. I didn't unlock any of the dark zone stuff, but hoping that will be available this weekend.

I have no experience with 3 but played 1 and 2 a bit. Did you like those?

I've played through it a few times over the years. Games generally ok. Last time started doing the map grinding which got old really fast

It looks worse than it is. Mostly there are a few clusters that define the build that you work towards, then grab all the health nodes you can.

Part of that is what I find annoying with the game though. You make a character and you basically have to choose from the start which abilities you are going to use and how you are going to build the tree. If there is something that looks like it could be fun you pretty much to build a new character to use it.

I tried to start a thread :-/

They've made huge crafting improvements over the last year or so. They've also added a few side options to mapping in the end-game which breaks up the monotony a bit.

I still throw a few hours at the game every week, which means I usually don't make it too far into the end-game each league/season
