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.

Good luck on post game cleanup for mad max, I know too well what that entails. Here's a crucial tip for Challenges. The ones labeled "completed 0 times" are the repeatable challenges you don't need to do for the achievement. Death Runs also serve as a convenient means for any challenges related to vehicle combat since you can restart them immediately by leaving your car to fail the race. I also remember finding absolutely no way to advance to night in order to encounter the Buzzard faction of vehicles. So I just left the game running in a safe location while I did something else. Encountering enough of those particular cars added a lot of dull time to my cleanup.

I would also prioritize finishing all the stronghold projects since they help you earn more scrap and also mark all scavenging locations on your map.

Last night was a DDD run on ESA and I tuned in to see the balloonra nonsense. Gotta admit there were more systems in the game than I noticed in my previous playthrough. Good commentary too. "Do you think this Dive is giving you speedrun tips? Sora keeps shouting 'Faster!' and there's balloons everywhere." [Link]

I also submitted my first run of 0.2. I'm not very good at it but it's a short game. Instead of planning my day around having three consecutive hours for a speedrun, I only need 25 minutes for this game making it a good addition to my repertoire.

Whenever I start a game I glance at a or similar site for advice on what achievements are permanently missable. I like to set up my playthroughs for even if I don't know if I'll like the game enough to complete it. DDDs looks very weird and very grindy but I may come back to it someday. I was surprised to find no trophy for beating the game on Proud or Critical, but a Proud playthrough is somewhat required because of the all abilities trophy. Only on Proud and Crit will EXP Zero appear and that counts toward the trophy. Pretty dumb design if you ask me. I hear the PS4 versions of KH 1 and CoM no longer have the issue of non-stacking difficulty trophies like they did on PS3.

I have one misgiving regarding speedruns of KH2 and it's the gummi missions. I asked a runner how long they were and it's 25 cumulative minutes. Of course the load time difference for PS4 is at least an hour compared to PS3 on the shortest category so I feel more enticed to learn the game than ever.
