    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.

    Alright nevermind. The level scaling is just adjustable, you aren't able to disable it completely.

    Is the loot system designed around microtransactions?
    Yeah that's gay as .. but I was on the pirate copy anyway so I couldn't even see the microtransaction

    yeah there's a window in the menu where you can buy , but i'd never spend a penny on microtransactions. only time i'd spend money on a game post-purchase is legit gameplay DLC (or back in COD days, map packs)

    yeah, that problem isn't necessarily difficulty. i chose the hard setting (not nightmare) because i dont want this to be a game where i just solo the whole game without having to learn.

    but aside from reaching a certain threshold level to encounter a new area, there's no actual benefit from doing side content. no advantage in leveling up. all you do is make your epic/legendary gear outclassed and then have to spend resources to upgrade them (or stumble upon more epic/legendary gear). its stupid to find nice epic gear, spend hundreds/thousands of gold to upgrade it to your current level, and then 20 minutes later its completely outclassed by some random common club i picked up from a random enemy

    its just poorly designed, not "hard." think they should have just stuck with the skill tree thing and have you encounter better gear in later sections (i think god of war nailed the leveling system in that regard)

    i do think their skill tree is well thought out and still has good RPG elements since i dont think its really feasible/possible to unlock the full tree as opposed to other skill-tree based games like god of war/horizon/tomb raider. you still have to somewhat choose a play-style and optimize your build. the balance of having passive abilities and assigned abilities is pretty cool. i've been putting most of my skill points into passive skills at this point. since you can only assign 4 abilities (non-bow), it makes no use to unlock 5-6 different combat abilities. with that said, i'm still story-locked from upgrading some of my other stuff like the shield break (it says i need to progress further to upgrade it such that i can even break large shields)

    my only issue with the skill system so far is the "critical assassination" which makes me feel like the regular assassinate attack is just inadequate

    I thought mercy kill was already available in the original persona 5. I swear I'd crash into weaker enemies without having to fight them in mementos but they're saying it's a new feature. I don't really understand.
    Just found out you can do the same in palaces in P5R. Eg if you're running at a weaker enemy from behind and hit them with your grappling hook it insta-kills them just like when driving Morgana in Mementos.

    FF7 is pretty great thus far. Tifa is so got damn hot in this game. I never get boners for vg characters but fantasizing about her giant ties when i was 7 is probably why i prefer big breasts on girls now but they did a great job on her character model tbh

    So definitely not worth the full price? If you already have P5?

    I don't know, I haven't gotten to the new semester yet. I do think it's quite a bit better than the base game since you can still do at night without Morgana hassling you to go to bed most of the time. Most of the palaces and boss fights are a little better, though they made the Okumura boss fight even more annoying. It's also a much easier platinum. Vanilla P5 took me three playthroughs to platinum but I should be able to do it in one on P5R. The one gripe I have about the game is the battle theme "Take Over" isn't very good compared to the original game's battle theme "Last Surprise." So I have played at least half of the game with the Gekkoukan High uniforms from Persona 3 so that it plays "Mass Destruction" from Persona 3 as the battle theme.

    I forgot one of the things they added is being able to take the twins on dates, which are pretty funny. Then you can do lots of social things with your team to level up things like technical damage or baton pass power ups.

    I'm pretty close to the end of the main story, just getting ready to fight Sae Niijima's shadow. Oh I also forgot you can't cheese the reaper in flu season in Mementos any more for experience and money.

    If they make you feel any better, they barely make any money on those.
