Photomode is enough reason for a 3rd play thru, lol! I think all games from here on out (all platforms) must include a photomode. Can't wait for update 1.70 so we can hopefully get nice uncompressed images to share at high resolution.

I'm at the boss where you obtain your 4th power abilities during the fight. I'm guessing I'm almost done. I dropped it down to easy because for some reason i really suck at this battle. I spent 25 minutes on it last night. I didn't have any trouble the first time facing this character earlier in the game.

Interesting, I had more trouble the first time facing this character. Anywho, just spam both your R1 and R2. Run side to side from the egg like things that boss tosses.

Also, there are two sides to the room. One side has some video screens. The other side has two pillars. I hid behind the right pillar (right as if you were facing the boss/video screens on the other side of the room. From this pillar you can peek out enough to safely hit the boss, but the boss can't hit you. I took that cheap way out on my expert play through after the egg spamming got me a few times.

I didn't even realize there were hiding spots. I kept trying to dodge the eggs and get slaughtered. Got the boss down to 25% health or so a few times. Was mostly using R1 attacks.

I will try the hiding aspect.

I think the first time was easier for me as you can choose which power and it is easier to navigate and hide (considering I didn't realize you can hide in this 2nd confrontation).

LOL, that would have been useful a few weeks ago...

On Expert it takes very few hits with that to kill you so you have to be really careful. And there are lots of annoying things to run into that knock you out of your dash with that power on one of the sides of the room... easily the most frustrated I've been with a PS4 game so far (not saying much since I've only played a few games on it tho). After reading how easy Expert was it was didn't make it any less frustrating biggrin.gif.

It's the first time in my life that I found an obviously unintended safe spot in a video game before. I've used a few over the years, but those were find by youtubing a solution, I never find them on my own. I'm not a fan of having to resort to it, and I found this one on accident. I usually reserve those moments for games that make boss fights frustratingly stupid or if I'm just trophy whoring and have no vested interest other than efficiently getting the trophy and moving on the next thing.

Took me 4 tries even with the pillar use. Once down to like 5 percent, hiding behind pillar no longer works smile.gif

Definitely some wasted opportunity to do more non-city environments. The one non-city area looks great.

On expert I didn't get touched. Right pillar. Look to the right of the pillar to shoot at a slightly exposed leg. Don't try to shoot to the left of the pillar because that would expose you.

Ok well maybe on 2nd play through.

Do I have to keep going only current play through and clear out all DUP in order to a new game with the ability to change time of day?

I tried doing a new save and it will not let me change time of day on the first area at the beach.

Make sure you have all the updates/patches. Maybe load up your finished game play to see if that will trigger it. Might not work on your 2nd playthru if you haven't seen the end credits.

I would think that changing the time of day would only work if you have cleared the game. Time of day is locked for story reasons.

I completed the game to where I watched all the credits. After the credits it puts you in the city section with the monorail, it is basically to clear out all of the DUP. I can change the time of day for this part. It starts off at "hero" for the time of day but as I said you can Change it.

I was hoping to Be able to play the opening non-city area with different times of day. Perhaps I have to completely wipe out the DUP first in my original game and get a 2nd set of credits?

If I am reading this correct, that isn't available on New Games. It's only for the completed game where you are just roaming around. I can confirm if I bother to start a new game...

Ah, I guess that is probably true. The beach would look awesome at night.

saw this last night; shows off how much extra the photo mode as added to general desire to explore the city; Mainly spoiler free, but if you haven't finished the game, caution!

I took the black electrical tape off the other day. No residue. Then I put it back on.

Finished the main story with good karma last night... now to clear out all those blasted DUP scumbags! I've only completely cleared 2 districts because I wanted to have plenty to do with the last power but, I'm really not a big fan of it so far. I like the 3rd power and neon the best.

Paper Trail part 5 is active, noticed last night. They've been pretty creative with the ARG story so far. A couple of puzzles actually had me stumped for a little bit so it has some challenge.

Yeah, Paper Trail updates are on Fridays. 5 was pretty good... I must admit I am sad with the knowledge next week will be it.

Paper Trail 6 is up, and complete. I really liked how it all tied the story together. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Finally getting to use the doves and webs that had been teased for so long was gratifying.

It was a bit anti-climactic that you don't get to fight her though. I guess the name should have tipped me off. "Paper Trail" is very descriptive after all.

I liked it quite a bit, but don't expect any grand ending or any big reward at the end. It's a good story though and ties together some things from the main story.
