  1. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    I’d guess cold boot judging my how it went to main menu/load game. But like said even if it was suspended that was pretty quick and damn fast on the save file load.
  2. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4/PS5)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLejPbyiFo0 SkillUp has a nice little review of the Legends mode that I find to be spot on. Mostly he just shames all the shitty live service games that have the audacity to be $60 and release in horrible states. And even after multiple patches still don’t match the quality of this free update. Hmmm. I broke the embed and have no idea how not how to fix it. Sorry all.
  3. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4/PS5)

    Anyone else checking out Legends? I’m really enjoying it so far. Almost done co-oping the story on easy (bronze) and did the first mission on Silver difficulty. It’s a lot more challenging and definitely adds to the gameplay in a good way. There is a level and item progression best described as Destiny/Anthem Lite. Gear has rarities and Ki that raises your overall Ki to unlock higher difficulty. Seems a good amount of effort went into this for a free update even if it’s just reusing villages from the main game.

    I don’t like that answer. Not one bit. I want my Bloodborne at high framerate and low frame time instead of the other way round.
  5. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    It’s not even that the president was given absolute power by the people, it’s that the rest of the republicans are afraid to go against him. He’s broken many laws while in office (easiest example is the Goya beans thing). No gop member seems to care to bring him to justice. So that’s what gives the absolute power. In unrelated news a terrorist Michigan militia group was arrested with plans to kidnap our governor. Who trump hates. fun times.

    BEAT IT! FUCK NOPE DIDN'T BEAT IT. Had 3/290 HP left at the end.... Second edit. Okay beat it on the next run for reals.
  7. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    Trump and Melania reportedly have tested positive for Covid. This is right from his Twitter.
  8. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    Biden is like Hilary, it’s the candidate the DNC wanted for better or worse. It was as dirty of a nomination this time, but I think more people are disillusioned to it all. I think they’re trying to win off of the premise of “Hey look we got the guy Obama chose, so vote Blue” and that’s a shitty platform to run on. About as shitty as “Hey if you vote blue we’ll have a woman President” The big problem with that as a platform, lots of people didn’t like Obama so that’s not going to sway votes their way because Biden doesn’t have the goodwill they think he does. They don’t actually give a shit. It’s all just a fun game of dividing people, it’s very us against them and if you’re not with us you’re part of the problem mentality that is fostered. I could only stand about 30 seconds of the debate. 3 people all trying to talk over each other because one buffoon doesn’t understand the preschool concept of taking turns.
  9. Hades (PC, Switch)

    Run 20, just got past that boss. Barely. I fully expect my run to end very soon.
  10. Hades (PC, Switch)

    It is indeed that boss, and that’s been the general strategy I follow. Just hasn’t quite worked out yet.
  11. Hades (PC, Switch)

    I’ve got like 18 runs in now and still am not getting all the way through it. I just cannot push past a certain boss. Regardless of weapon I can fairly reliably get to the fight and just cannot win. Still having a good time but it’s like running headlong into a wall over and over.
  12. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    Your first line reminded me of the semi-unrelated nine inch nails Pandemic line of shirts. Specifically this one, https://store.nin.com/collections/pandemic/products/stand-for-something-2020-tee. As for him not bluffing and all.....well with all the other Republicans backing him he has gotten away with so much more than is legal. No one is holding him accountable. Anyone that tries is ineffective because the rest of the Republican Party stonewalls it. Like his impeachment, it went nowhere when it got to the republican held senate.
  13. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    It’s going. Anecdotal but I’m seeing absurd amounts of yard signs endorsing trump anytime I drive anywhere. He has a lot of supporters still, and he has a lot of supporters who will follow through on voting for him. There’s also a good subset of people that literally do not care because at the end of the day they see it as “owning the libs” and it matters more to them that they upset someone else. He’s been setting up a narrative of how the election may be fraudulent and blah blah blah. Effectively just getting it into people’s minds that if he doesn’t win obviously he was cheated. Of course if he does win, well I’m sure the results were all 100% fine. Gut feeling, the psychopath will probably win again. America has been divided and the conquering is in progress.
  14. Hades (PC, Switch)

    Now obviously our tastes are different as I like both of those games you mentioned, I’ll say this is FAR superior to Dead Cells. Dead Cells relies to heavily on being skill based for the lack of true progression between runs. You almost always fail based on your skill until the bosses where it’s just luck of the weapons you have. It’s not a game I’d recommend to everyone. And Binding of Isaac is nothing but skill and luck of the seed for a run going well (but runs just seem quicker and better than dead cells.) But I find it so fun despite/in spite of its high difficulty. It ironically is a game I would recommend. Hades is not really like either entirely. It’s rouge like in that when you die you go back to the beginning, all you lose though is gold which is only used during runs for temporary benefits. All your other currencies you keep to improve the hub-ish area and to permanently improve your character or unlock new weapons. Honestly the gameplay feels a bit more Soulsborne in that regard, and in between and during runs has actual story exposition as well. The biggest thing for me though is that, it is just plain fun to play. I find that it plays similar to Bastion, so grinding away like that I never feel that I’m not making progress because I’m just enjoying playing. And like Isaac would definitely recommend. Im not super trying to convince you really. Just trying to more explain the game. If you don’t really enjoy Dead Cells or Binding of Isaac, while this is more forgiving you probably still wouldn’t enjoy this. Anywho....I’m just loving this game currently. Just unlocked a scrying bowl in Hades. I have 11 runs and killed 2026 enemies throughout those. That’s a lot of murder. I’ve made it to the 3rd area, and damn that boss. Like damn. But yeah, this game is right behind Ghost of Tsushima has my top of the year. Course I’m a simpleton and Maneater is up there too. (FFVIIR is not)
  15. Switch eShop Thread

    Super duper seconding this. Hades is my new jam. I really need to get around to playing Pyre, I bought it at release because.....Supergiant Games. But I am playing Hades and loving it. Kinda surprised it doesn’t have its own game thread (well the PC one does) Regardless people need to play this game. It’s good. Imma go pimp it to anyone I can. Also I enjoy they feature the Goddess Nyx. Which most records about haven’t survived to this age. The things that are known are goddess of night and even Zeus doesn’t pick fights with her. Only other time I’ve ever seen Nyx mentioned was in the Ilium/Olympus book series. And I think that was a single paragraph.
