No, we are not-- it's undecided.  We just may not stay on that other board is all.

Soooooooooooooooooo yeah.
This game is pretty damn good.
Really eerie story telling so far.
Builds a lot of tension.

That it does!  How far have you gotten?  I'm near the final chapter. (about 4-5 lore stone markings left)  You think it's eerie and builds tension now?.....     ho.. lee... shit.  Just you wait... I had to stop after awhile and play something else to relax some.

So annoyed that I missed 2 lore stones near the beginning, but gotten every other one since then.   From what I read though, if you start another game, you can still get the trophy even if you only find the ones you didn't get the first time around.  That being said, I will probably start again just to get those I missed... looks to be a relatively easy Platinum.

Finished the story last night.  Very thrilling, intense and creepy game.  Ninja Theory definitely accomplished what their goal was; a more focused narrative action adventure game with the feel of a AAA title.  I messed around with the photomode alot more last night too.  Got some cool pics that I want to post here, but a bunch would contain spoilers, so I'll wait awhile.  I definitely need to start another game though to get the 2 lore stones I missed.  So annoyed with myself, because I was pretty damn diligent when looking for those..  I missed 2 in a row near the beginning.  They are randomized for every playthrough, so I hope those 2 will be near the beginning again, because I don't know if I could handle another playthrough right now, LOL....  It certainly is an experience though.  Hats off to Ninja Theory!    👍

Is it just me or does she look cross eyed when you are looking directly at her?

This game is f-ing gorgeous and super eerie!
I'm in the Illusion area right now.  Super interesting mechanics.

I already finished the fire area.  Man that was rough.  Having to activate the memories at the stones and hearing what was going on... I had to stop using headphones... it was too much.

And the combat... where not difficult, You definitely feel that you have to be extra careful with multiple enemies.  I find myself using the training I've had when fighting multiple adversaries and moving to a position where they are essentially in a line so that you can single one out.  And then when one gets behind you and starts attacking and the voices start yelling "look out!!" ... it's really pretty amazing.

Really happy with this game!  Great job from Ninja Theory.

Yeah man, I will always remember this game.  It hit some eerie notes pretty hard...  Oh man!!  Just wait for the 2nd half !!!  The anxiety, fear and stress was starting to get a bit overwhelming.  The fighting had my right arm tensing so much, I felt that the rot was getting to me too. lol

Speaking of fighting, are you playing with the auto difficulty?  That's what I played it on.  .. I did start to panic some when I died a few times and the rot was up to my shoulder.  What happened though, near the end I was getting killed more often than I preferred and had me stressed out even more, but at one point, it almost looked like the rot on her arm went back down, or reset, per se.   At that point, I felt a bit more confident.  The auto lock is pretty good, but certainly not perfect.

I'm playing on auto as well.
I am still pretty early on, but I haven't died during combat yet.  My deaths so far mostly came from making the fire runs to get through the doors.  The one before the boss stage I died twice.  :(  I think I have 3 deaths so far.

I want to say I might of died a total of 10 times throughout my playthrough.   As much tension this game put on me, I REALLY was afraid of my save getting erased.  The auto setting might have saved me from that happening.  😅  I added one more pic I forgot to upload. 

Being only 2 lore stones away from a Platinum, I'm gonna have to dive back in.. I just hope to get them both closer to the beginning, because I don't know if I can handle the later game again.   The lore stone markings are supposedly  randomized with every play through.  😓  But at least the ones seen/activated carry over.

I'm using a faq for the lorestones.  But yeah... overall this is a really good game.  Glad I decided to get it.
