I am playing The Council again using remote play on my IPAD. quite fun actually and plays very well.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

@PSVR_lover Remote play is a great feature that has improved massively over the lifetime of the PS4 and I use it frequently when I don't have access to the TV.

I am currently 40 hours in to Hollow Knight and now the game has clicked, I am utterly in love with it. Not sure I will do all the various boss challenges but tempted to go for the 112% completion.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

You're an absolute madman @Rudy_Manchego by just being tempted to go for the 112%

Glad to hear you're enjoying Hollow Knight though... Really can't wait for Silksong to finally release! I've rewatched that trailer they put out for it ages ago too many times 😅


Yeah playing them one after the other really was gonna colour my judgement somewhat especially with the different levels of care and attention they recieved @colonelkilgore.

Hopefully the game'll resonate with you more whenever you get round to trying it!

@Rudy_Manchego I am genuinely surprised the 112% completion trophy sits at over 1% for the game.

I utterly loved the game and did loads of it but the pantheons were beyond me and those are needed to get 112%.

A massive amount of internet kudos to you if you manage it but saying you're not sure about doing the boss challenges already means you probably won't get it.

For reference (spoilers depending on how far in you are): https://hollowknight.fandom.com/wiki/Completion_(Hollow_Knight)

Lots of those are from playing the game but there's plenty of optional content there too.

@Thrillho Ah you are right - I had read that the 112% didn't need it but it looks like this is not the Voidheart version of the game on PS4. Oh well - not going to bother. Will be quite happy with finishing the game - I have read there is an additional boss after the Hollow Knight so will figure that out later.

Thanks for giving me the heads up! I won't be going for platoninum then! I think boss rush would break my enjoyment of the game. The boss fights are cool but I love the exploration more.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy As noted above - I am not a madman for the 112%, just someone who doesn't read trophy guides properly! I TAKE IT BACK!

That said, properly stoked for Silksong. I played the demo in 2019 at EGX and Hornet handles very differently so I think will be a really great sequel.

Hope so... are you gonna try 3 at some point or has 2 put you off the series altogether?

Just picked up Code Vein. Very fun so far. I like the partner system. The ability to change your class on the fly is unique as well. It is a bit easier then a souls game, but not by much. The bosses are tough but fair. I've only killed 3 bosses so my opinion could change. Nice purchase on the sale price.

@Elodin

Glad your’e enjoying. I liked it but I’m yet to play a Souls-like I don’t like in fairness... having said that, I’d personally rate it somewhere in the lower half of all the Souls-likes available. The last boss (only spawns depending on certain actions you may have taken during your run) is a doozey though.

Think it was probably the Tower of Trials on top of all the multiple runs to obtain the various endings that soured the experience a little in the end.

Ha ha I haven't even done the normal Grim fight, the true final boss or the path of pain so there's no way in hell I'd ever attempt the platinum @Rudy_Manchego. The pantheons are pretty cool though.

Really need to replay Hollow Knight sometime. And you lucky duck getting to play a SilkSong demo!


Nah I don't think I'll be trying the third @colonelkilgore.

Mafia III was actually the first time I'd heard of the series and I remember most of the reviews at the time saying that it felt a bit bloated with a load of similarish objectives to take down a district or something along the lines?

I won't say I'll never play it... But even with the chance to play it for free at the moment I'm all Mafia'd out for the time being.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy

Fair enough, I’m actually looking forward to playing 3 more than 2 but when I’ll start either I have no idea.

@Rudy_Manchego @Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy You get NOTHING for the Path of Pain, other than a warm glow inside for doing it (and an incredibly short cutscene which you could just find on YouTube).

The “real” final boss isn’t too difficult and doesn’t take much to get to (excluding the ultra version at the end of the pantheons). Nightmare King Grimm I’ve spoken about plenty of times before on here!

I'm back playing Code Vein after... 3 weeks or so?

Beat the Guilded Hunter. I tried a few times but I simply couldn't last long enough at lvl 10 in his second phase so I ended up bumping my character up to lvl 25 and switched to the "hedgehog" coat to deal more magic damage and finally got rid of him.

The next area The City Of Flames wasn't particularly fun... Quite annoying actually to navigate due to the hazards it had and one specific enemy that popped up here that was getting on my nerves 😅

I only lost to the next boss The Successor Of The Claw once though... Quite a fun one I thought. You'd think the teleporting attacks would get obnoxious but once you know the tell for it I actually find it quite fun (Like the Queen's Knight fight)


Also Yakuza 0 arrved today so I gave it a little go for an hour or so.

That combat system is really quite fun and I ended up doing six battles. The two scripted ones before Karaoke, the scripted fight to getting the second fighting style and then 3 random fights around Kamurocho.

Karaoke was a fun activity and I was intrigued by the main story set up so far too.

I look forward to playing it properly in a month or so's time!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I really should get back to Code Vein but I’ve gotten seriously sucked into Dragon Quest XI S. I think the Gilded Hunter is the next boss for me though.

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

Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy

Ha ha I was more listing the Path Of Pain as one of the many things in the Hollow Knight that I couldn't do and how 112% is waaaaaay beneath me @Thrillho

But good to know none the less!


Having got back to it today I realised I was still actually ahead of you in Code Vein @nessisonett and that when you said you'd beaten the Successor Of The Breath in your last post I forgot that meant you'd only just beaten Nicola! (Who I think is absolutely precious) 😅

I've only played Dragon Quest VIII myself and... It was ok I guess? Yungus was the best thing about it I think

I'd say just ride out the DQ XI S train if you're that absorbed by it!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I just went back to it there and somehow beat Gilded Hunter first time so very happy right now! Shouldn’t be that far behind you now.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Most people seem to LOVE VIII, but I had a really difficult time getting into it. I didn't like the world design, to be honest. DQXI is more linear, but it flows so much more nicely.

Although I do kind of miss the tension system from VIII.

I really need to complete XI S' post-game. It's been a year or more now since I stopped playing.

@Ralizah I started VIII but could never really get into it. I also got about halfway through VI on DS and bounced off. VII is another one that’s a bit weird and massively obtuse and that’s the 3DS remake which I’ve played so I dread to think what the original is like. IX is the best RPG on DS though, hands down. It’s right up there with the best RPGs ever to be honest, tons of content and a story that hits hard, even with characters you create yourself.

@nessisonett Interesting. I've always been under the impression that IX was the weird pure gameplay one that wasn't the best place to go if you wanted a decent story, which is why I always avoided it.

@Ralizah I can see why someone might think that given that your playable characters don’t speak at all but it more than makes up for it with the individual stories of each town and the way those characters interact with your party, which are better than even DQXI, at least of the 25 hours I’ve played. There are a whole lot more sidequests as well and a great class system. There are a few specific towns and their stories which still stay with me even 10 years after I got the game. It also essentially invented the StreetPass mechanics with treasure maps you could exchange with people, which totally blew up in Japan. It’s a strange game but one I’d recommend to as many people as possible and it definitely beats out the Final Fantasy games on DS even if it was perhaps a bit overshadowed.
