  1. Dicey Dungeons

    Alright the review sold me, though I may wait until I’ve gotten a bit more value out of Slay the Spire.
  2. Beyond Good and Evil 2

    Called this out as vapourware the second that E3 demo dropped. You could tell they never had any idea what the game was. Shame, but unsurprising.
  3. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    Watched the Skill up impressions, and that’s all I need to see for now. Media blackout for me now until release. Cant wait.

    We’ll this is good isn’t it. Bought it a couple months ago, but bounced off straight back into the arms of Hades. Jumped back in up a couple days ago, won my first run with Ironclad and now I’m hooked. Christ it feels good when you got a good deck. Done Silent as well now (with a ridiculous deck based on getting out as many cards per turn as possible - towards the end I was firing off 12 double power shivs per turn). Now onto Defect, and I get the feeling he’ll require a lot more patience. I also need to get better at pruning my deck - any tips? On level 1 how do you know when to stop building out your deck and to start foregoing new card pick ups?
  5. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    @Julius yeah the jump is a bit floaty but it was the same in Sekiro. I think it’s programmed like that to give you time to execute mid air actions. As for his inspirations Miyazaki has been quite open about his love for BotW and it’s influence on this game in particular. I’ve no doubt Dragon Quest is one of the multitude of other influences they borrow from liberally. The Manga Bezerk is the other notable example I know of, with the wheel skeletons in DS1 being a straight copy from that. Don’t care too much though, as long as the gameplay continues to feel unique.
  6. Hades (PC, Switch)

    My best time is 22 I think, running the fists rip and tear with the Poseidon dash. You just get into a flow Hotline Miami style.
  7. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    Yep, that looks great. I wonder if the addition of those summonable spirits is meant to help balance the game against the coop experience - allowing them to make the co-op game harder without making it too hard for solo players.
  8. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    I imagine it'll be the gameplay demo they showed to press a couple months back. Bloody excited.
  9. Metroid Dread

    @Mokong that last one was awesome
  10. Darkest Dungeon II

    Yeah quite psyched for this after reading all that. It sounds like the biggest change is from the more classic 'level select' structure, to the more zeitgeist-y rogue like 'run' structure, which is a fairly substaintial change, and one I welcome. Its a wierd one, because part of the reason I was originally attracted to the first was that you had the Fire Emblem esque character building system, with the members of your party developing over time. However because life is so cheap in the first game, and often a character would have to sit it out after only one run to recover, it was really hard to build those bonds between yourself and the characters that makes FE games so rich (at least in the old games before they started having fucking tea parties). Also it looks incredible - those battle animations! Will wait for the switch port.
  11. Hades (PC, Switch)

    24 attempts isn’t bad, really.
  12. Starfield (11th November 2022)

    Will this still be running on the Creation engine?
  13. General Movie Thread

    Holy shit Dune was good. Everything I hoped it would be when I heard Villeneuve signed on to direct - bold, impactful, atmospheric. Everyone turned up with their A game. Can’t wait for part 2
  14. Metroid Dread

    Taking a week off from this before I go back and start speed running it (not bothered about hard mode) - I’m fairly confident I can get sub 4 hours. The fact there’s already a sub-1:30 out there is madness.
  15. Darkest Dungeon II

    Have they just made the original 3D? Looks like all the classes are the same.
