@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Ha, once I was committed to it, there was no chance I wasn’t going to complete it.

It was an utter dick move by the devs to put those two difficult enemies at the end with no bench during the path

I did have to admit defeat on the Pantheons though

I found it way too hard @Thrillho... both the Path Of Pain and the Pantheons.

Hell I never even beat the True Final Boss or Troupe Master Grimm cus it was a bit too frustrating at the time having to be so precise 😂


I played some more NieR: Automata over the weekend.

I just saved 9S from Adam in the all white area.

I have no idea where the story IS actually heading at the moment. I have one theory about something but other then that... No clue whatsoever

My favourite boss fight so far was the one at the Amusement Park. Really fun and energetic.

The two Adam fights have been pretty good too

The second Goliath fight and the sea machine fight were a bit disappointing though

Haven't done many side quests at the moment. The Father Servo fights have been fun though... especially as I did the black belt fight 20 levels earlier then I should've

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Sounds like you’re making some good progress. The story is pretty complex, to be sure. There’s quite a bit of philosophy inter-twined, if you’re interested in it.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Nightmare King Grimm remains one of my favourite boss fight accomplishments.

Did you do the colosseum fights too? The third one of those took me a long time to conquer.

Those Father Servo fights in Nier are good fun and I remember finding them quite easy to start with and then hit one where he utterly devastated me.

Well... I was going to post earlier and disagree quite a bit about NieR Automata being particularly complex at all @Th3solution ... In fact I was going to say you're all taking crazy pills 😂

Especially when those actual end credits came seemingly out of nowhere after the Eve fight! (Good fight btw)

But then that little message came up... You almost lost me there but now I know there's alternate viewpoint/multi-layered story telling I'm back in


I got to the very end (I think) of the third colosseum fight @Thrillho once. Never beat it though... I did only try it a few times before I gave it up... I think that was the last thing I tried in Hollow Knight before moving on 😅

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Ahh yes, the old ‘end credits’. All I’ll say is don’t take them to mean the end of the game!

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

I've been playing the Last Guardian over the weekend. It's equal parts engrossing & frustrating.

Don't think I have too much farther to go, but progress up the tower has been both up and down in parts, so I'm not positive. Just got the sheild back after the fight with the evil Trico, which resulted in me falling down to a previous area.

Been playing a lot of Yakuza 3 Remastered lately and it's starting to become my second favourite Yakuza game after Yakuza 0. One of the reasons for why I like it so much is because it's so different from the other three games. You've always been in a dark setting that are Kamurocho and Sotenbori but now you're in an area that's always sunny, in Okinawa. Moreover, the environments are so refreshing. You're either in a beachside area or in a sunny urban environment, which I really like. The upgrade system felt weird at first, but I think I'm liking it more than the previous games. It's more streamlined and direct, there are not tons of different abilities to attain at a given time. You have to work your way towards unlocking them in a linear fashion, which sits right at home with me because it makes me look forward to what I'm going to unlock next. There are also lots of new characters and people to get to know, which is a breath of fresh air from the same cast of individuals that you know from the previous games.

One thing that might turn hardcore Yakuza fans off are the "missions". There are not a whole lot of action moments where you go around and beat up yakuza. Most of the time you're just helping the kids in the orphanage that you work at. For example, solving a mystery of disappearing allowances, teaching how to stand up to bullies, adopting a dog etc. Not really "Yakuza" missions at all, but here's the thing: they all give this game its own identity and charm. It really reminds me of Shenmue, an otherwise flawed game that has a lot of charm with its cast of characters. Even if you only run around and help people with smaller stuff, it's still rewarding. And that's the feeling I get with Yakuza 3, it just oozes with charm.

Overall I'm just liking the game a lot. It takes a while to get used to the stark decrease in graphics but other than that I've been enjoying my time with this game. It's much better than I thought, or rather it's more to my liking.

I've been playing God of War lately. I can't praise the effect of the game being a one shot enough. What it adds to the fights and making it a personal story about a father and son is just breathtaking. This game have cutscenes as long as it wants as I'll be happy still. I do have a few gripes though.
I dislike the "filler" in the game though. I don't like finding symbols for the chests and whatnot. Especially since the upgrades in them are often vital for being powerful enough for fights as they're needed health capacity and rage upgrades and the like. It distracts from the game's beautiful story and action. I'm also not a fan of having to mess with gear as much as I do.
I think some customization from the abilities you choose to buy first the runes is good, but overall I think it would be a better game if some of the stuff was just given to you like the ax upgrades instead of making you play hide-and-seek all the time with different runes lying around. I personally think it's becoming a problem with games, especially with everything being more like an RPG. It's ways to artificiality boost the ever important hour count instead of just letting you go through a game's tight design. Don't get me wrong though, the game is still a masterpiece.

@KratosMD I particularly liked the tuneful pedestrian crossing in Okinawa. But you’ll be back in grotty Kamurocho soon enough! And yeah, the new cast are all good value.

Wow, just finished Art's Dream. Fantastic little game may only be between 2-3 hours long but incredibly well done!

I've competed my approximately 500 light year trip in Elite Dangerous during work lunchtimes remote play sessions I've done the travelling as a bit of busy work to set up what will hopefully be a lucrative route/loop once I've gone through a couple of other games.

It's fun losing yourself in Elite Dangerous, certainly got my money's worth playing it. I wonder if there's any chance they will enable VR for it on the PS5, that would be an experience.

Made a nice bit of progress in Hollow Knight this afternoon, and while I noticed early on how it borrowed a bit from Dark Souls, it really strikes me now just how much of a love letter this game appears to be to the Souls games.

The interconnected world with all the clever shortcuts, rewarding combat, a world that has seen far better days, where many of the remaining inhabitants have gone mad, the ability to explore certain areas and take on some bosses in a different order, and the intellectual conversation of the few sane who remain. And of course the ability to collect currency after the player has perished, when you revisit the location you died.

But despite all that, it still succeeds in being it's own unique and fascinating game that demands its locations be explored, and mysteries solved.

I just finished up in Soul Sanctum, what a terrifying and exciting place. Where to go next, hmm hmm.

@LieutenantFatman It's such a great game! Not for everyone, but just beyond the various gameplay loops, the serenity of the scenery and travel, the scope of the available galaxy are almost insideous in how they permeate.
Even while I wasn't playing for a few months I was still checking in with Inara.

@LieutenantFatman I think I enjoyed Hollow Knight most in the early hours where you are finding places for the first time. The mechanic of having to find the map maker is one I loved and hated in equal measure but it does add to that tentative feeling when you get to a new area.

It’s hard to know how you’re making progress though as there are so many ways to go through the game other than the roadblocks where you need specific abilities to progress.

@KALofKRYPTON
It is pretty awesome, really does drive home just how terrifyingly big the galaxy is. Will have to jump back in at some point, maybe on the next big update. I like to do a bit of the cqc occasionally when there's some activity.

@Thrillho
Yes, it's quite scary exploring new areas with no map and no bench to rest on, especially as each area becomes more and more dangerous. The temptation to turn back is often quite high, especially when I discover what looks like a boss area.

@LieutenantFatman Never gone in to the PvP cqc. If I make enough coin during this next venture I may try it out.

@KALofKRYPTON
The cqc mode is pretty much completely separate to the main game, so no credits required to jump in, just need to try it when the servers aren't dead.
