My god, this game is a complete mess. I had to check a walkthrough to even know what I'm supposed to be doing in the second generation, and I'm still not 100% sure. Lots and lots of grinding too.

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
On Fire: 3 beat or complete in a row
Lol I forgot how much I hated The Order's subtitles. YES! They were horrible. QA for subtitles would be amazing. If movies can standardize them, games can too. I am really enjoying Sleeping Dogs so far so at least there's that. I feel like it's gonna be a repeat of the Arkham games for me: super fun to play, but actually playing them involved lots of pausing and moving closer to the screen during story beats.

Minion of Bak'laag: 100+ unfinished games
On Fire: 3 beat or complete in a row
Confused: Playing 10+ games at once
Still chipping away eh? I saw that David Cage's 3 latest games are coming to PC, so I can't wait to experience them. I hear they're not for everyone, but I've got good humor when it comes to bad games/plot. How would you say Heavy Rain's story was?

Yeah Mad Max's plot is pretty indefensible. Not as bad as escorting a bunch of little tykes to Tomorrow Morrow Land, but it's up there. I found more compelling stories from the sub missions. Like helping Pink Eye build a raft to brave the endless ocean of sand. Max thinks they won't make it, but he helps out anyway. Classic Max, even before we remember this is a video game where designers would never present a quest and then have the player not be able to do it.

That's part of what I mean about this being a good adaptation of the Mad Max series. He avoids interaction with other people like the plague, but helps them with their problems anyway. In the process of 100%ing the game you find yourself building up incredible strong holds filled with gracious survivors. Max doesn't care, or does he? That's what the viewer has always wondered with this antisocial protagonist and it translates well to the "Player Avatar" dichotomy of video games. We decide how much Max cares about other people and their problems, and that's true of most apocalypse- genred video games. The story kind of "gets it" right in the end where he adamantly chooses his car over settling down with Hope and Glory. It just didn't need the forced romance, or that dumb kid asking Max if he could be her daddy within fifteen minutes of them meeting in a whole in the ground. That was uncalled for. And probably the starkest contrast with Fury Road since our male and female lead do not hook up in the end. It's just a video game-y save the princess sort of angle.

Ah, I must have managed to avoid the game breaking bugs. As for the patch, that sounds like shoddy port work. Didn't have to play around anything like that on the PC version.

Yeah Mad Max is quite unforgivable with the scrap economy. The amounts of scrap you get from enemies and scavenging locations never scale with the player, always the same random number between 1 and 20. But with all the busy work of going to scavenging locations, reducing threat level and waiting for night time kept my pockets full of scrap thanks to the regular income from strongholds. Seems like some kind of miracle now.

Doing all those chores in the wasteland, feeding off the old world, the meta context of this game feels like an extremely faithful adaptation, at least of Road Warrior Mad Max. But I'm sure most people felt burned at the time that we didn't get a fulfilling narrative with interesting characters and objectives. That would have been an adaptation of the Fury Road Mad Max. I really like the Mad Max video game, just as I like so many of the games that wear their Mad Max inspirations on their sleeve like Fallout, Borderlands, etc. But I won't argue with anybody that says Fury Road is a higher quality experience than the game. It's just so hard to believe this is the first and only game that tried to capture this franchise when we're currently drowning in open world post apocalyptic environments.
