@JohnnyShoulder nah having looked at both in action Hades & Curse of the Dead Gods appeal to me more... as I implied though, if Hades does release that will be the one I play.

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

@JohnnyShoulder Both Hades and Curse have more involved combat and are slightly more forgiving than Gungeon.

@colonelkilgore Yeah, Hades is bound to be released on PS4. I would say, in Curse there is no story at all. No narrative. So if you like story, Hades is definitely the one to go for.

@PossibLeigh story is not integral to me but a strong narrative is a great cherry on top. I’ve heard that Hades’ story is a great addition to its fundamentals and enhances the experience so that’s the one I’m (& have been for months) waiting for. Curse does look fun though.

@colonelkilgore @PossibLeigh I actually didn't think Enter the Gungeon was all that, I was just using it as an example of one of the games in the genre that could be bought at a decent price.

Finally got the last fragment.... and then the game crashed. I now no longer have the fragment. I am getting close to just putting the game in the bin.

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

@JohnnyShoulder Enter The Gungeon was in Play At Home so there's a good chance everyone already has it

@JohnnyShoulder in fairness I have heard people say good things about EtG bit having looked at a few vids it just doesn't appeal to me enough to put 80 hours into it (I think that was the estimate for the platinum). Hades on the other hand does appeal to me on that level.

Who knows, once I've played through Hades and Returnal I might find myself jonesing some more rogue-likes and or lites that I end uo giving some others like Dead Cells, Binding of Isaac and Enter the Gungeon a go.

@Voltan yeah Johnny and I were chatting about it yesterday, I didn't add it at the time and kinda regret it now.

@nessisonett I too have pretty much reached my limit after a fruitless night trying to get the third artifact again.

@PossibLeigh 3rd as in the Citadel one? I believe it's always in the same spot and you don't have to go far in.

Had a very scary moment with a corrupted save but thankfully it restored from PS+. Mad to think people would be out of luck if they didn’t subscribe.

@render I finally ran into a pack of drones when I had the void beam alt-fire ... you were so right! That made short work of them. If only I had that every time I met them

In the same run, I got locked in a bonus room with the same enemy that ended me yesterday - it took everything I had, but I killed it, so at least I know what it is now (a malformed automaton).

WOW you guys have been busy in Returnal. I got up early this morning and took down Nemesis, 5th time lucky and then Hyperion 1st time In the same run. Then was taken out in the 5th biome wasn't fussed though as I am happy with that for now, That was from 8am until half 2. Can't wait to dive back in whenever that may be.

@Voltan Made it half way up the tower both times and didn't see it. There were some locked doors I didn't have keys for, but I'll be disappointed if it's behind a locked gate.

First time I found it, before the data corruption, it was easy to find.

@nessisonett it’s bizarre that it manages to restore a save from the local file system which in most cases seems to be older than the one that’s been backed up to the cloud. Like you say though, if you don’t subscribe you’d be plain out of luck.

@JigsawPieces it’s frickin awesome right? I heavily relied on that method to get through that biome. It’s nuts but I played through all the biomes yesterday including doing all the bosses and it’s so much easier now I’ve unlocked a ton of weapon traits. I still almost got killed a couple of times, one in this damn challenge room.

@MightyDemon82 Any progress is good progress 👍. I can’t wait to get back on later too. I’m half tempted to carry on and try and get the platinum.

Anyone done one of the daily challenges where you have the dissolving suit? That’s a challenge!!

Got about half way through the final stage of Nemesis but it done me. Put a good 2-3 hours into that run and had well over 200% health and even a couple of silphium vials until the last few rooms broke me into wasting one

Next time! 🔫

@Th3solution Play the game, it's brilliant. It's very stable since last patch for the most part. Crashing seems to be related to PS5 firmware for the most part, if I'm correct.

@Kidfried I’ll probably start it soon. Given that your catastrophic crash a few days ago has not deterred a strong recommendation is comforting to know. If it’s no longer having a crash per play session then that’s looking hopeful.

It’s probably like anything in life (thinking about the COVID vaccine for example) where a few reports of the big problems dominate the public consciousness but we forget about the thousands of people who are having no issues.

It doesn't feel that I've made much progress today after making some yesterday and obtaining the blade.

The Malignant effects can be pretty evil! I had two yesterday which wouldn't allow me to pick up any weapons or health items, and it took me ages to find the relics need to cure them. And then I had one that gave me fall damage, then went round the corner and the floor collapsed underneath me! 😂 At least I know what to look out for now lol.

Still fun though, it just feels so good to play.

@Th3solution I've had no crashes yet either and I've clocked up near 10 hours now. I've been using rest mode too.
