Welcome to The GameTZ Game Club! This is my attempt at forming an easy to get into book club type thing, but with games! Anybody and everybody is welcome to join in on the fun!

Rules:

- Each month a random game will be chosen, by myself, for the club to play. Games can vary from the beginning of gaming onward to current generation platforms. There's no limitations!

- You have from the 1st of every month to 11:59PM EST of the final day to complete the designated game. 100% completion isn't required. The point of the club is to provoke game discussion, as well as give GameTZ veterans and new users a place to mingle!]

- For every game completed, post a picture as proof of your completion Example. This is essential in order to receive your badge and entry to the monthly raffle.

- You will be awarded with a badge each month you complete the game. All badges will be proudly displayed next to your name in the original post. As long as you "roll credits" the game is considered beaten!

- Some months will feature prizes! Every user to complete the game each month will be thrown into a drawing to win prizes! Users will be assigned a number and users will be randomly generated at some point the following month.

- Each month's prizes will vary. Prizes will be given out by either me or another member. Sometimes physical, sometimes digital. If you would like to contribute, drop me a message. smile

- If you don't own the game, and you have access to it on another platform, you're welcome to play it that way. Just make sure that it's the same version, to qualify for the prize or badge.

- If you do not want to participate in the games, but would like to join in on the conversations, please do!

- If you would like to join, just post here, and I'll add you to the list of users. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or criticism, please don't hesitate to post them!

Whew that final mission/battles was intense. I was down to a sliver of health with no herbs/potions a few times. I almost restarted my game but decided to give it a try and glad I did because it was rough. Beat Horizon Zero Dawn this afternoon 7/11/21 {imgt}https://i.ibb.co/mqb... 3264 2448{imgt} It is a great game. I am not sure if I'll bother to go back and play any side missions though, but maybe. I have limited time the rest of the month unfortunately so I was really glad to push through and get this one done.
I actually found it a bit underwhelming. Not quite as underwhelming as I felt with BOTW's final boss but still. I guess with big open world games I tend to over prepare for the final battle laughing out loud

I was kind of screwed at the end. I did not have enough health items. I was trying to finish up while my house was very loud and in chaos and so I didn't have many ways to heal. Made it more exciting! lol

Being low on health items was part of my headache facing my only StormBird so far. It was for a side mission and I was a little careless on my way through the mission such that I had consumed most of my health pouch's contents. For whatever reason I don't end up using the potions and stick with the herbs.
In the heat of battle I forget to cycle through that interface and sometimes even forget that herbs is up, not down. I tried to use that 'over health' potion the one time but didn't like how it started to drain right away. The birds in HZD are far and away the worst enemies as they rarely stop moving, your camera ends up in the weeds when aiming at them, hitting them with projectiles can be tough (especially bombs) and the SB has too much health. My first fight against the Deathbringer had me thinking this is going to suck, but I've taken down both I faced without a ton of challenge and prefer fighting them over SBs.

See I always made sure to have health potions, full health potions, and herbs aplenty. I actually also used the temporary health potions this playthrough. I don't believe I ever used them years back on Playstation

@Frank Just an FYI, looks like you gave me the HZD badge already. I'm still working towards that but have a handful of story missions remaining. With Tetris Effect out of the way and less interesting in beating Shantae for the Retro GotM, it is more/less my #1 priority, so you could just leave it be, and I will still ping you with proof and a huge sigh of relief once I complete it. Game is still a stunner and I'm not tired of it, just looking forward to crossing that finish line.

@Frank definitely the most entertaining Tetris I've played. Some of the jumps in speed were a bit chaotic. Ended up getting a D in Area 6.

Same here. My inventory is almost always full and now when I kill an enemy or machine I don't even bother searching them to see what they were carrying on them.

I'm now Level 46, 58% complete. I never intended to go for 100% but I recently bought the item that lets me fast travel an unlimited number of times, so I'm using that to get where I need to go. So far I'm not digging the hunting grounds missions though and they might be what stops me from fully completing it.

I played through it on Expert this afternoon in a sitting. It only took me a little over an hour, but man I must be rusty. I was clearing with mostly Cs, and a few Bs. To be fair, the most Tetris I've played as of late is whenever Tetris 99 has a new theme raspberry

Dang, sorry for the wasted question, I thought the 2010 answer was Yes.
