    AC Odyssey's leveling/scaling system is really poor, imo

    usually the point of side quests, besides the minor additional content, is to get more XP/gear than you would just plowing through main quest lines. but there is seemingly no benefit in doing so. what's the point of doing side content to level from 17 to 20 if all enemy characters also scale with your level? its almost like your character level is imaginary, and no matter what you do, you are always equal to every enemy you encounter. im not saying i want to be 20 levels above enemies and one shot everyone, but it defeats the purpose of an XP system if you never get stronger relative to your enemies.

    instead, the only real benefit of leveling is adding to your skill tree. which is fine. but then... why not just remove the leveling system altogether? instead, the leveling system holds you back because your armor/weapons very quickly become underpowered, and it costs way too much resources to upgrade your epic/legendary gear to get it up to your current level, so im running around with a level 22 common weapon instead of my level 18 legendary weapon because the stats just blow it out of the water.

    id have been better off sitting at level 18 for the time being instead of doing side content to level up

    its a complete cluster tbh
    basically, once you get legendary stuff that has a bunch of nice perks you like, you keep that stuff and upgrade it to keep it level or close to it, and sell/recycle everything else you pickup to have the resources to do so. its a waste of time.

    at least thats what i did

    finished RE3. total playthrough time was only 7.5 hours on hardcore. overall i give the game a 7.5/10 but as i said before i would wait until this is on sale. it should have been a DLC to the RE2 remake more than anything imho. aside from all the missing my other gripe is the lack of diverse enemies. yeah you get some hunters towards the midpoint/end but most of the game is just zombies, i remember fighting infected canines only twice, there's 1 random licker, and theres maybe two other enemy types you encounter once and twice respectively.

    now to wait for FF7 to be playable in 2.5 hours....

    It's really an action game, tbh... they threw in a mish mash of rpg as an excuse...

    Is it not possible to disable the level scaling in Odyssey? I saw something about it in the options but got sidetracked. I'll look tomorrow.

    The combat mechanics feel ing weird so far... will take some getting used to. All I've really done so far is some exploration and climb up a stone nutsack. Not really sure why I even bought this game knowing how big it is. I don't really have time, especially now, to play something on the scale of Red Dead or Witcher 3.
