    Finally took on a Thunderjaw for the first time. That's one bad mofo. Certainly took me awhile to bring it down.

    Yep, it is indeed the definition of a bad-ass robot - love how you hear it before you see it.

    It's got that Jurassic Park T-Rex essence of it.

    There's few things that beat killing a Thunderjaw - with its own weaponry!

    True story, I only realized that there was a heavy weapon blown off the Thunderjaw I fought only after I killed it.

    Always take out the missile launchers first!

    Just beat Redmaw today. This time around I found the missile launchers and used the weapon against it. Certainly made the fight a lot quicker.

    Even with doing that Redmaw still takes a real pounding.

    I still haven't even beaten the main story yet. Taking my sweet time with the game as a whole.

    Just last night I beat my final Hunting Grounds Trial. It's the one where you shoot off heavy cannons from a Thunderjaw and use them to kill a couple Ravagers. The Lodge weapons seem to be well earned for sure. I'm not sure if I have any more side quests (outside of the one for the Shield Weaver Outfit); so outside of tackling the last Tallneck I don't have much else to do except continuing on with the main story. There's also the collectibles like the Banuk Statues; but I figured I might be able to do that after the main story's completion.

    I will likely be doing the same in about two weeks.

    The other aspect that recent releases has emphasised to me about HZD is what it didn't do.
    • It didn't release as a skeleton game, onto which DLC packs of stuff that should have been present could be flogged for
    • It didn't simply drop a big, empty void of a world on us
    • It didn't use a paid loot box gambling system as the main means of progression.
    What did it do? It put out a complete, finished game that was also very, very good and it didn't take the mick out of consumers. It also had a new and unique aesthetic, especially the robots. All of that has added up to both a smash hit and a sense of trust such that I can see Guerilla getting preorders for the Frozen Wilds DLC to the same degree CD Projekt Red did on Witcher 3 DLC.

    The other day I overrode the final cauldron, "Zeta". I was kind of expecting a more difficult fight, but considering it was essentially just bringing down a Thunderjaw it was pretty easy. Took a lot less time than the other cauldrons for sure; especially considering I'm near Level 50 and have all of the Lodge weapons and most skills learned.

    I've still not done all the cauldrons, must get that sorted before the xpac lands



    Looks like I'm arranging a gaming day on Saturday

    I'm still not done with all of the corrupt zones. I came across this one the other day with one of those sandworm-type machines and I said to myself, "uh, I don't think so". Definitely needed to stock up on some ammo before getting involved with that one.

    You need cover to take on Rockcrawlers - preferably a nice big, mini mountain rock formation.

    The bastards tend to travel in pairs too so watch out for that.

    I thought I've read that some people have managed to override them; but they must've been full of it.
