@TraCuz- @nessisonett really surprised there’s been no mention of a PS4 version yet... I’m starting to consider wrestling the switch back from the missus just so I can try it!

I ain’t ever met a souls-like I didn’t like!

TraCuz-

@nessisonett I honestly didn't know what I was getting into when I got this game, it was so interesting each time you die you learn something new and I always appreciated the dialogue when you pick up boons. Some favorite characters of mine are Nyx, Eurydice, and Chaos. Any favorite builds? I always like having Athena's reflective dash, and putting Zeus and Artemis on my special.

Currently Playing:

Apex Legends, Final Fantasy XIV, Returnal, and MGS4

@colonelkilgore Yeah I don't know what's going on with that, and you might just have to xD.

@TraCuz- Athena’s dash is really really good so I always tried to get that. I love the adamant rail and Artemis’ stuff is great for that.

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

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

In order to warm up for Returnal I started playing Enter the Gungeon (free from the latest batch of Play at home games). I doubt I would have ever fired up this game but someone brought it up in Housemarque’s Discord yesterday and decided to give it a go. To whoever is not aware - it’s a rogue lite (or rogue elite - no idea what the difference is) bullet hell game with a top-down view with 90s aesthetics. And it’s quite addictive to be honest. I only started it to see what it is and before I knew it I was 2 hours in it and had to go to bed.
The music is awesome in the game.

@velio84 Yeah it is a great game to dip in and out of. I liked the humour in it too, with all the pop culture references. Some of the guns are hella fun to muck around with. The Ghostbusters gun has been my fave so far.

@JohnnyShoulder
That’s my idea - game seems super fun without any fancy controller combos to remember so I’ll jump in and out of it when I’m tired of more “serious” games

Yes. It will sell. There hasn't been a big sp game since November I believe (c2077 doesn't count)

@LiterallyDoNotCare There was Hitman 3 this year. Immortals in December. Can’t think of anything else right now.

@Voltan Immortals?

Hitman is triple A but I don't think it's on that level of budget.

@LiterallyDoNotCare Immortals: Fenyx Rising, the Ubisoft game. Not as high profile as some of their others but still sold ok, I think. Aaaaanyway this might not mean much but it doesn’t look too bad 😉

@Voltan Yeah Immortals has dropped in price pretty quickly. I don’t think it sold as well as they wanted. If they kept the name Gods & Monsters it would have sold 20% better 😂. But actually, since it has a free upgrade to PS5, it’s a great deal for a AAA single player PS5 game. It looks pretty good actually, so I have plans to play it sometime after Returnal — probably during the gap until Rift Apart, FF7 Intergrade. and Kena in the summer. Also depends if I mix in Demon’s Souls and Miles Morales at some other quiet point, in addition to my oodles of PS4 backlog games.

Ok I am in, Pre-order done, Can't wait to explore with Selene.

Jeez a lot of people moaning about the price of games under that Days Gone article. It does seem like a lot of people say I'll get it on GP or wait till it appears on PS+ these days, I've always bought my games through official channels, Although I have came late to the party when it comes to certain franchises and developers and gotten great deals but that just means that if there is a new game from those developers I'll jump straight in if I liked what they've done in the past.

@MightyDemon82
Yeah, it’s sad that people prefer to complain and argue instead of having discussions about the games. Articles like the latest about Days Gone and how Sony are bad tend to have hundreds of comments of people arguing. Lately i try to stay away from the comments section of similar articles and stick to the forum. The discussion here is far cleaner.

The trophy list for the game is revealed:

https://www.powerpyx.com/returnal-trophy-list/

1 VERY good thing for me is that it seems Housemarque have drawn inspiration from the novel Hyperion (1 of my favourite books ever). 2 of the boss names for example, 1 is straight up called Hyperion, the other one - Phrike (similar to the Shrike - 1 of the main characters in Hyperion).

Below is some Hyperion artwork:

On a side note, but whoever is into sci-fi and haven't read Hyperion - can't recommend it enough.

@MightyDemon82 @velio84 It just a load of whining at this point, I usually just drop my comment and move on. It is a bit sad that you can tell from a mile off what articles its gonna happen to.

@velio84 Nice catch, that's an absolute classic

@velio84 Interesting. It wasn’t too long ago we were discussion Simmons and the Hyperion series over on the book thread, I believe it was @LordSteev and @Thrillho involved. Looks like the developers are fans of the books too!
