Ugh, i hate hate HATE Egypt. Especially the sounds, that constant wailing moan in the background every few moments is like nails on the chalkboard for me…

So many peeps say they hate these zones, sometimes i feel like i’m the only one who loves these zones.

For me I think it’s a few things that make it so distasteful for me. One is that I thought Solomon Isle was such an interesting take on the Lovecraftian mythos mixed in heavily with other, more classic, horrors, that the whole place just felt very unique. To shift from that to the old tropes of Egypt and mummies and literally feeling like it’s all been old territory that we’ve seen umpteen times before was a huge letdown. Even the story quality takes a dip (outside of Said, the only interesting character in the entire blasted region). Add to it the droning ‘wail’ in the background every few moments, and the visual monotony of all the browns and tan colors, and it just feels like the place is actively trying to drive me away from the game. If it weren’t for the fact that Transylvania is good (not great, but decent) and Kaiden-Cho was so wonderfully back to the whole ‘ancient horrors in a modern setting’ that we got in Solomon Isle that they help get me through. But it took me MONTHS to get through Egypt the first time, I just could never convince myself to boot up the game and just PLAY it. I had to force myself to do Egypt… Still do, given that’s where my current character is stuck.

You may well be. The first part is bearable, but the second……yeesh.

Said and Nassir are the best parts of the desert. When do they get their own dance party?
