• Welcome to Senior Gamers!

    Senior Gamers [SNR] is a community for mature gamers formed in 2012. We started as PlayStation gamers but now we are fully multi-platform with members also playing on PC, Xbox, Switch and other platforms.

    We used this website from June 2012 until March 2020. Technology moved on during this time and we have now moved to Discord. If you are familiar with it already you'll know how quick and easy it is to use. If you haven't tried it yet, you really should!

    You can browse this archived website to see what we posted over the years.

40 odd hours and it's opening up wow i've just played it for over 4 hours i'm still hanging around well doing some of the quests.. I was hoping to have spent more time on it but i ended up watching all the latest series of castle instead.

That is the end credits rolling now.
80ish hours and no restarts.
Phew!
Most enjoyable though.

One thing though - nowhere near a platinum... :shock:
I rather suspect another 40+ required to level up characters to 99, my main characters are currently at 88 & there's a whole "after-game" of harder beasties & "King of the World" to take on, plus Familiars to capture. Maybe not quite as much as 40 hours but no doubt it'll feel it, grind-wise.

Actually, one thing that'll make it worth it would be gaining enough cash/winnings in the Casino to open up the film reels. Reckon it'll be quite "tidy" to watch all the cinematics back to back.

Yeah, I took a Far Cry 3 break actually - started it way back when first released then stopped playing it for a while. Was determined to finish it though to pass onto my friend (along with a bundle of other titles) as he's off to sea for a few months next week.

I still have Demons' Souls, Dark Souls, Skyrim, Kingdoms of Amalur, White Knight Chronicles & now Dragon's Dogma to complete RPG-wise though! Yowza!

So which Boss are you stuck on? I'll see if I can remember any tips for you...

God i ended up putting 38 hours into Far Cry 3 without even touching the online part of the game, which i should do as i only have 6 co-op trophies to get. As for Ni No Kuni the boss battle thats currently driving me mad is Moltaan. I get it's health nearly all the way down and then he gets me with his special attacks. I'm really terrible

The fire dude on top of Old Smoky?
I hit him with water attacks from the Spriteling thingie & tried to keep to his rear.
Any time I managed to stun him, I sent the Mite in physically whack him in the butt!

re: Far Cry 3, well reminded - I still need to do the last 2 co-op missions but I've now lent the disc to my mate who is off to sea so won't be getting it back for a few months. Plenty other titles to crack on with though!

Good luck & ditto!
Think I'm going to blitz Saints Row the Third & inFamous 2 after I've finished The Last of Us.
