Video Games: Immortals Fenyx Rising – First Thoughts

After having one of the busiest days in a long time. I really, really enjoyed playing this title, Immortals Fenyx Rising. The visuals are stunning and controls work almost flawlessly.

I didn’t even have one potion or upgraded armor . . . Then, I got in a fight with a bear and barely won:

Spoilers in the form of bear ☠️ death, cut scenes, descriptions of stamina system and resource farming.
This glowing Bear got slung into oblivion. I love watching the boar disappear, too, flying into his demise. 🤠

My screenshots and video captures weren’t uploading at first, and I rebooted to find my game in the same exact spot without having to relaunch it all over again! How frigging cool is that? It’s the quick resume feature and smooths the experience like denim pants with no back pockets, ha. Smooth booty pants. You ever have your back pockets ripped off? That is like this. My character is pretty barebones at the start. I’ll call her Barbera Jones:

My female character.

But, I’m pretty sure she has some awesome powers coming up to be unlocked. I jumped down a crystal hole a ended up in some sort of floating puzzle land, with platforms and a part I couldn’t get across because I need to be able to jump further or fly ( that part not specifically shown here ).

The floating puzzle land, in space.
Climb the huge statue to get the vantage!

The video above, shows some more aspects of the game, which is like Assassin’s Creed mixed with Greek mythology. If you climb too long without resting, you fall albeit without fall damage. And, if you swim too far, you drown to death. That’s the human part. Then, you respawn without much consequence to speak of. You can get a resource called amber by chopping the trees down and can also get gems, amethyst, boar fights and I’m not sure what else, because I’m a straight newbie!

Immortals Fenyx Rising, so far is bravo, excellanto. Give me more!

Here’s where I got to the vantage point, then I got the focus to locate objects around the map ( I uploaded this video because either WordPress or my web hosting couldn’t handle the upload ):

The vantage point!
Focusing, finding the treasure spots on the map. Booty Chests, resources, same other stuff.

That’s it for now. Hopefully this continues to impress this smooth chest / booty hunter!

Guys and gals, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley.

I thought so, too. I’m really impressed. It got some bad reviews . . . but shows you how much I listen that. It’s all fun, climbing and jumping, slashing bears and boars, oh my! 😂 I can’t wait to play more, when I can.
