Played a bit of Returnal last night, hadn't booted it up ever since I finished it after the release.
I played B1 way too much initially due to the difficulty of beating Act 1 initially, so didn't really enjoy it that much. But once I got to B2, I remembered how good the game was. Really enjoyed it, managed to get through B1, 2 and 3 with all the bosses. Only died once in B3 (drones) but had an astronaut to revive me.

Photo mode is not bad, but I couldn't force myself to stop playing and take pictures. Annoying thing about it is that you can't pull the camera too far away from Selene and that's a bummer as most of the surroundings on Atropos are huge. The photommode is better suited for action shots.

A strange thing is that I stumbled upon plenty of "rooms" where I hadn't been before. Don't know whether it was a random thing or they were silently added through the updates lately, but that was a pleasant surprise as this way the game felt somewhat fresh.

@velio84 That’s good to know that your skills stayed sharp after a prolonged holiday. Perhaps one of these days I’ll go back for the platinum. I was worried I’d get rusty.

@Th3solution I think because I played without any goals, just for fun, I was really calm and wasn't bothered whether I'll die in the next room or not - this way the gameplay was really smooth and I had no issues. When you're afraid that if you die - you'll loose your run and have to start over, the stakes are much higher and you do lot's of mistakes (at least I do)...

Hi all apologies as I know this will be within the thread somewhere but there's that many pages now....!

Biome 5 - if I get the 3 keys but die fighting the boss, will I be able to go straight to the boss next time or will I need to get the 3 keys again before facing it?

@MatthewJP You will need to get the keys again if you die. I found the boss pretty hard.

@Just2Milky I think everyone finds that one the hardest don’t they?

@Just2Milky oh pants, I've got the keys but no consumables to face the boss...i was hoping for an easy ride to the boss next time

@MatthewJP What @Just2Milky and @render are saying is false, probably just trying to scare you - the Vault stays open like every other Vault in the game. The boss is very unique though, not much more I can say without spoilers.

In fairness I think I got lucky getting the challenge room key anyway - I died during the 2nd wave, came back via the reconstructor and was able to fight the 2nd wave from the doorway. No 3rd wave came and I got the key. Seems like a bug to me, and the locked slatted door thing remained shut and I couldn't find a red switch to shoot anywhere, not sure if that usually automatically opens after finishing the 3 waves usually

@MatthewJP It does sound like a bug if you got trapped there. Did you have to restart your run?

render

MatthewJP

@render no I wasn't trapped as there's a teleport with the challenge room key, but I definitely didn't face 3 waves (nor could I access the loot behind that slatted door).
Shall have a quick look at the boss and see what the next run brings

@Voltan @MatthewJP Ah sorry, if you die with 3 keys but no vault unlocked, you lose the keys, but if you open the vault the vault will stay open forever. sorry for the confusion!

I've just resumed my cycle tonight after stopping yesterday having got the 3 keys in biome 5.
I was expecting to go straight into a boss fight when falling into the water but there wasn't one.
Having read up, it seems there are 6 biomes but only 5 bosses? Seems like an odd design decision

PSN: mpquikster

Voltan

@MatthewJP Hehe. Honestly, I kinda liked that myself. It's a particularly punishing biome and then you go into the vault expecting it to get even harder, and... nothing. In a way, that's another thing to catch you off guard
Anyway, enjoy the change of scenery in biome 6
