So, is there an actual POINT to these spaces right now? (in terms of the content once you jump into one)
Currently, I have to say it's pretty much the only gripe with the game I've been able to find, is that the ocean sections honestly seem really badly designed, unless there's some huge element I'm completely missing. It seems though that characters are utterly unable to swim? No vertical movement, and...... yeah. I ended up getting up to go get a drink while waiting for my guy to die from tiny fish, because there seriously wasnt any point in doing otherwise; couldnt just exit to the left or right, because BOTH sides (in a zone that was in the middle of a string of 5) had huge walls that just went straight up to the surface. On top of one of those walls is where my guy spawned (
Tried floating up on boxes, but the need to shoot idiotic fish kept blowing them up (and actually placing them seems a bit..... overly quirky). There doesnt seem to even be anything IN the ocean areas whatsoever to check out. Literally the ONLY things that happened were, got to ocean space to look for item that the encyclopedia said was found there (and wanted to try out the water-breathe enchant), dropped down, explored bottom REALLY SLOWLY for like 10 minutes, found a whale (which promptly just hovered in one spot that I couldnt really get to in order to attack), which just spat fish for the next 10 minutes before I got tired of it and gave up.
The one point where I DID reach the surface, the box placing was too quirky (seriously, boxes/platforms need to have more horizontal range; they seem pointless right now if you're NOT trying to place them vertically, because they're GOING to get stuck on each other) and regardless of what I did my guy kept stacking them ON each other as opposed to dropping it forward so I could make a bridge; caused me to have to leap back into the water due to one of those worm things.
This game is SO freaking great otherwise, but these areas..... I'm sorry, they kinda suck, lol. Though if there's some entire game mechanic I'm missing that I'm supposed to use here, do let me know.....
At the moment, just REALLY hoping there arent any important items that are ONLY found here, since I really dont want to do that again.
I will say though, my godawful gamepad doesnt help. Cant use mouse controls with this one (physical issue), and this bloody controller is a nightmare.... never buying another Logitech product again after this thing, haha.
