    Just got the Super Shotgun. That helps - a bit less weedy than the one from earlier in the game. Still wish it maybe had a grappling hook attachment and that the grappling hook set enemies on fire and made them drop armour shards. But you can't have everything, I guess.

    Not sure I get why people have a problem with Abby. Her motives (from what I've seen so far) are perfectly understandable and justifiable. This is nothing like as uncomfortable as some of the shit in Ellie's arc. Though guess I'm still fairly early in this section.

    And I think I just found a Games Workshop. Now there's a company you copyright-bait at your peril.

    Though the Grim Darkness of the 41st Millennium is a bit of light relief compared to this.

    Little bit into day 2, should I have the bow yet? Feels like I've missed it

    @Decks No, you've not missed it. You get it in a scripted sequence.

    You might pick up some ammo for it before you get it, though.

    It'd be hard to miss, as soon as you get it you go into someones back yard with a bunch of target dummies. I also get the impression there's multiple opportunities to pick up new weapons/talent trees.

    @WrongShui No, I checked this after getting paranoid - weapons and training manuals are strictly one-shot. You get them when they're available, or miss them for good. Some of them, like the bow, are scripted, though. So far, none of the optional ones have been massively hard to find, though I had to back up to a checkpoint after accidentally locking myself into the next area while searching for the hunting pistol.

    Manuals maybe, but all the enemies drop the weapons, you can't pick them up if you didn't find it earlier?

    I didn't search that extensively and found everything without having to go back, which makes me think they pop up more than once.

    You can miss weapons in the game 100%, at least two you have to find off the main path.

    Training Manuals have additional spawns points too if you miss some.

    There's a slow mo function in the asscessabilty that can be turned on, and to quote push square:
    "this option should also prove fun for everyone, as you can channel your inner-Keanu Reeves and pick off foes like youíre in The Matrix". Sounds fun 😁

    And I just fought Nemesis.

    That was not a good fight. A bullet-sponge boss, all of whose attacks are instant-kill, in a confined space. Don't think even his RE:3Make version got that annoying. Used up most of my ammo and a good chunk of crafting mats. Dread to think what it would have been like if I hadn't been well supplied at the start of the fight.


    And it turns out you do get a second chance on weapons. Miss them the first time and it'll put another square in your path a bit later, albeit usually just after a point where said weapon would have been really useful.

    It's taken me six hours to get to the same spot as it took me 8 and a half first run. Annoyingly it seems you must get all benches and safes on the same save file. The Ng+ puts it on a different file and I've found the one safe and one bench I missed (were on the same area) and didn't get either trophy. Will have to just load up the completed file another day a select the level.

    Just finished. Loved it. The level of quality thatĎs sustained throughout the entire game is unbelievable. Itís so fucking good.

    Iím already thinking about another playthrough. What a game.

    Thatís frustrating, I know Iíll miss the safe trophy by one and donít know if Iíll have the time to invest a second run through

    @TFM_Excalibur when you complete it and return to the menu goto chapters and it will show you the ones you missed. It should work if you load the chapters from that completed save file.

    Thanks!

    I've completed the game and got the Platinum. My feeling after finishing it is one of profound disappointment unfortunately. It's nowhere close to being GOTY for me, and nowhere near as good as TLOU 1 was.

    Itís up there with the first game for me, maybe even surpasses it because the gameplay is so refined. I absolutely loved my time with it just as much as I did the first game.

    Iím actually surprised that people can feel such disappointment towards the game. I can understand the story complaints even if I donít agree with them, but everything about the game is done to such an incredibly high standard, I was constantly in awe at what theyíve managed to achieve.

    @Bombonera agree. Although the gameplay is refined, the story is such a major part. I replayed the original multiple times but that wont be happening with this.

    I think the biggest surprise for me is I absolutely couldnít stand the first game, got to the school and ended up binning it.

    Part 2 had me hooked from the start

    The gameplay mechanics from the second game to me makes the first look half baked
