  1. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    I have finished Chapter 5. How does this game keep getting better?
  2. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    Got really addicted to this game and powered through the story, I am now on Chapter 5... oh boy! Can safely say that if the pervious Xenoblade games were on the restraining order in how deep Takahashi was allowed to go it feels like the band aid has been completely stripped off and the they simply went for it. I'm going to admit that the identity of a certain character wasn't really a surprise in the end while the same time it also was.
  3. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    Playing through this game at the moment, currently on Chapter 3, its pretty great so far. I was worried that having 6 party members would make things overkill but removing the ability for anyone other than healers to revive party members fixes an issue where the class was just not outright useful enough in previous games. If you still don't like them, you can just not run with it. I got another class for Noah from one of the Heroes and I immediately switched to it as it was my favourite class from the original game, nice to be able to play that here.

  5. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    Monolith pls.
  6. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    Started playing CrossCode recently and I know its an RPG and all that but... ...dang, this music is awesome!
  7. They only announced three waves so far and it looks like the third one has already passed. Still, I'm going to give up hope just yet.
  8. Well seems like badges have already sold out. Pokemon Company just sprung that on people like a month before it all happened and now there's none left. I hope they get some more stock in, I will be trying every morning to see if I can get any.

    So after being unable to get Omori on PS5, I could have possibly got it on Switch, but for various reasons decided not to. After running into a dead end with Meat Boy, I decided to forgo putting it off and went and swapped one precision platformer for another, starting Celeste. I should be able to finish this game pretty soon to be honest, not sure if I'm going to do the extra levels or the additional chapters but I might do. In terms of progress, I have just finished The Mirror Temple, so next up is Chapter 6. After that is finished I have also bought another indie game (really on the indie train now). I have purchased the RPG CrossCode which is supposed to be really good, has some Zelda elements to it too.
  10. Hollow Knight: Silksong

    If I had to guess, it won't be out until next year.
  11. Sonic Frontiers (Holiday 2022)

    Internet has been blowing up over this... and not necessarily in a good way. Honestly, Sega's handling of this game has been poor from a marketing point of view, it seems like they are intentionally making the game look bad. Is it a bad game? Not really the place to be able to tell just yet if I'm honest. Conceptually open world Sonic game is an amazing idea and being able to run through blaze through open fields at blinding speed sounds really fun. There's a level in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart that was wide open and let you zoom about with rocket boots and that really felt like what Sonic Frontiers as a game should be. But its just difficult to have much faith in Sonic Team to make good games anymore. Maybe Frontiers will buck the trend. The only Sonic-likes are in the indie space so by default the originator should be the standard setter. The fact that these indies and fan games are favorably comparable to the official stuff is both a great thing for the indies but also damning on Sonic Team who with a much bigger budget and greater resources *should* have the most polished game of this type.

    I hear this Omori game that released this week on Switch is supposed to be very good. Though, its also something of a horror RPG and very much an adult game so there is that...
  13. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    So Omori was supposed to come out on all consoles yesterday. However, despite the fact that the Xbox and Switch got it (the Switch in some regions) the game is mysteriously absent on the Playstation despite the fact that it was supposed to come out yesterday...

    After two and a half months... I have finally finished Elden Ring. The highlights of the last month of Twitter playing the game were certainly interesting... Still modding Rivals of Aether on the side but going over previous projects to improve quality and taking my time over things. It'll be a while before the next one is ready. I'm planning on moving on to Super Meat Boy next. I still need to finish that game and I got it back in 2013...
  15. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    I REALLY struggled with that fight quite a lot. It forced me to leave Volcano Manor and go out to find the Mimic Tear in order to be able to beat it. Now I'm in the lategame and am on my way to go after the last Great Runes.
  16. Your Gaming Diary 2022

    Been quite quiet on these forums revcently and not all of it has been due to Elden Ring. But yes, I'm still playing Elden Ring and I'm still not anywhere near done yet. This game is ridiculous in its scope, to the point that I've found three entirely optional areas that are absolutely huge. In terms of progress I'm on Level 89 now with four Great Runes and currently going for the fifth one. I'm in Leyndell, Royal Capital and the enemies in here are all really strong. My armour options are quickly becoming outdated and I'm craving some decent mid tier armour. The fact you can't upgrade your armour in this game is something I am sorely missing. However I've picked up a few neat goodies that are significantly better than what I had before. I'd been using the Raya Lucaria Soldiers as my main Spirit Ashes but now I'm using the Mimic Tear. For just 660HP I get an exact copy of myself and since I'm using the Nightrider Flail, if we attack the same enemy at the same time that bleed buildup increases rapidly and we do so much damage to bosses in the process. This really helped as for a long time I was stuck on the Godskin Noble. With the Mimic Tear however we absolutely annihilated it. I then went and beat Rykard and... the fight is cool don't get me wrong but in a game where you're given so many options and encouraged to customise, suddenly restrcting those options for just one fight and requiring you to use a specific weapon? Not a fan really. I wouldn't have much of an issue if the options were already limited but this is a game that encourages you to really carve your own path and your own upgrades. This boss fight concept really clashes with that as a whole unfortunately. I did die a few times trying to use my normal setup before finding out that the weapon they want you to use shoots a big gust of wind from long range for that fight only to help you fight the boss. Leyndell is also a bit of a maze. I've got my Keen Nightrider Flail up to +18 now and my Brass Shield is up to +16. At this point, so many Smithing stones are useless to me now, only ones that are Level 6 or higher are any use and 7 in particular is needed to level up my Flail. I found one in Neskell but haven't found any others just yet. Aside from that? Spent a lot of time in Rivals of Aether but most of it was simply to patch a character several times over after stern criticism and glitches were found. Distracted me from progress in Elden Ring quite a bit but now I'm moving towards making a video on Rivals to show off some extra features. For example, someone made a Pit which has the same Palutena's Guidance as it does in Smash Bros, with the option to be supported by custom Workshop characters so I really want to be able to show some of these, even if they are all fan written. I'm currently compiling the video footage and making an intro for the video.

    OK so I have made major progress in Elden Ring. I have not only beaten Margit but also beaten the next major boss in the game, Goderick. I am now Level 35 and the Jellyfish Summon has been of great help. As was Nephil against Goderick. As a team of three we laid waste to Goderick. My friends have been pretty much playing this non stop ever since they got it, so as a result I'm the guy furthest behind in the game so far but that's mainly because I've been working on something else too which was finally released yesterday... https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2782300518

    They just said Spring 2022, the actual date wasn't revealed until this Saturday.
  19. Do you know when tickets are available? This has been on my radar as somewhere I really want to go to this year.
  20. Switch eShop Thread

    Going to take a wild guess and say that this applies to Switch too.

    So I did eventually beat Rift Apart. Fun game overall although my successful attempt at defeating the final boss was down to a glitch which I found while warming up for a certain other game... With Rift Apart beaten, the first physical PS5 in the collection down the coast was clear to get the next one. This game has been on my radar as one of the games coming out in 2022 that I really wanted to get and its also only the second SoulsBourne I've ever played... that's right, I now have Elden Ring. My adventure in the land of Limgrave has certainly been an interesting one so far... I'm at Level 20 or so right now and I started out with the Samurai class, reason being that by the end of Dark Souls I found myself in a dexterity build because being able to move around and combo the enemy is good. So I'm building towards a proper setup for that, I've moved away from my initial gear and have a +3 Rapier, though I'm hoping to find a weapon with B or A Dexterity scaling in the future. Right now however I'm stuck on Margit, the first phase I can handle but the second phase the move I was abusing to hit him he no longer does and the absolutely massive range he has makes it extremely difficult to avoid his attacks. Yeah, Get Gud and all that (or Margit Margud), I know, but in some ways having more health and more attacks does increase the confidence in me to try new things and learn how to avoid the attacks. The timing is pretty strict with dexterity mind, frame perfect dodges are the only way to really avoid much of the attacks so far.

    Finished Pokemon Legends Arceus earlier in February. Really enjoyed it, best Pokemon game on Switch. Although, Scarlet and Violet may potentially change that! I've moved on to the other game I got recently, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. So far pretty good game though there are several moments where I died over and over again because I couldn't see where I had to jump to link on a grind rail, and the checkpoints give you little time to react to that part. Aside from all of that my game progress has been a bit slow because there's always something new in Rivals of Aether plus the amount of time it takes to mod a character into it, meaning I skipped getting Elden Ring on launch like I originally intended because I wanted to beat Rift Apart first.
  23. I am now in the final lord area of Hisui. Team will be posted below in spoiler boxes but suffice to say everyone is now fully evolved. Very physical attacking team this with Crobat and Garchomp also being extremely fast to boot. The levelling is getting annoying for my OCD though, having to box my Decidueye because he's so far ahead in experience compared to everyone else and a full level, so the rest need to catch up with him a bit. Also, I had to make this Twitter post lol... And here's some I can share publicly...
