@RogerRoger I feel the same. I’ve yet to play the Hitman III levels properly but playing the first two games in the Hitman III package, I noticed more glitches than I ever had. Perhaps they’re just focusing fully on Bond.

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.

@velio84 Seems like the game has finally clicked with you, which is good to see if I'm right.

Chapter 8 was indeed a pretty good one. I also enjoyed my time in Wall Market, which starts with the chapter after that one. Some odd but entertaining characters (Hell House can be a pain at first though).

Wow, just finished Chapter 12 of FF7. Not going to ruin it for those behind me but man that was some truly epic *****!

Every time I think this game has peaked (Chapter 8 or 9 or the Wall Market segment was a sheet delight although Hell House can rot in, ahem, Hell) it manages to surpass itself.

This truly is one of the greatest games of all time.

Yes, the game indeed clicked and I’m really enjoying it at the moment. Managed to beat the Hell house last night, when I saw it coming I knew it’s hard and expected to struggle but it wasn’t that bad, managed to beat it 3rd try.
I think I struggled at other bosses so far more than with the Hell house but initially I wasn’t switching between the party members and was mostly bashing square with Cloud but realised that wasn’t going to cut it and had to use all the skills and all the party members if I wanted to beat the game.

@Col_McCafferty reading this, I can’t wait to progress further.

@nessisonett Yeah, that's my hope as well, although it does make me feel sorry for Agent 47 getting discarded like a high school boyfriend just because IO Interactive have met somebody new. I expected some rough patches for the first couple months, like any game, but it's August for crying out loud. It's like, get your base game working properly and then chase those DLC dollars.

@RogerRoger The DLC being so incredibly pointless is also a point of irritation. The added content in the first two games for free was more interesting than the paid packs in III.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

RogerRoger

@nessisonett Agreed. I can't even muster the effort to watch the content on YouTube. And all of the new suits look utterly hideous. Nothing of interest there.

Thing is, if history is anything to go by, you know it'll all be made free in a couple of years.

Finished Astro's Playroom, so good. A great introduction to PS5. Just started the new Ratchet & Clank, very good fun so far.

@LieutenantFatman Glad you enjoyed your time with Astro's, such a charming little game which you can help but have a huge grin whilst playing it.

What do you think of the console so far?

Pretty happy with it, the short load times are nice. It's great to be able to jump into something so much more quickly. I've not tried online play yet so can't comment on that. But overall it's definitely been a positive experience so far. Everything I've seen has been really nicely presented with impressive graphics.

@velio84 Again, good to hear/see. I struggled with Hell House the first time I played the game to the point I had to drop the difficulty down to Easy for it. This time around I beat it in one try. I knew what to expect going in, like the damn door that sucks you in and not to just try to attack it up close all the time. I was surprised that I didn't struggle like I expected to, but I guess I'm playing the game better this time around. I am being smarter and using Aerith a lot more, including in that boss fight, so there's that.

I'm always flipping through the characters. If I see that they have one of their ATB bars filled, I switch to them so I can use one of their abilities or spells, and then switch to the next, and so on. With the right weapon and abilities, Tifa is easily the most powerful at hand-to-hand combat in the game. Once you get the Feathered Gloves (if you haven't already), make sure to use her Starshower ability enough to acquire it since it's extremely powerful. Only downside is it takes a moment for her to start it, as she hops around for a second to get ready to do it, but then it's a blur.

@KilloWertz I really struggled with Hell House as well to the extent that I put the game in Easy mode in order to defeat it. I died four times but got close on two occasions but the problem was I had been playing it for quite some time before getting to that boss and just wanted to get past it.

Strangely most other bosses since then I've been able to defeat on Normal mode, Hell House was just my Waterloo I guess!

On Chapter 14 now and in all honesty I don't want the game to end. Absolutely in love with it, the music, the characters, the lore, the gameplay, pretty much everything in fact.

KilloWertz

@Col_McCafferty I would imagine you'd fair a lot better against it a second time if you ever play the game again. It happened for me and it's not like I'm a master gamer.

I've been ahead of you the whole time, but you might pass me since I'm making sure I do all of the side quests this time around since I skipped several the first time. There's a lot of them in Chapter 14.

Due to a new project I'm working on I don't have a lot of time to play video games, or rather should I say that I lack the energy for it after a full day of working.

I still try to play Disco Elysium an hour, or at least half an hour, every day. But the game can be quite demanding, so sometimes I just lack the energy to play a full hour.

Anyway, I can always play Chicory. The game, even though I have lacked the time to play it, is so addictive. I can just waste hours coloring in the screens, experimenting, talking to townsfolk, and I love every second of it.

I ranked Disco Elysium higher as my favorite game for the PS5, but you wouldn't say that seeing the joy I get from playing Chicory, and the amount of energy it costs me to make some progress in Disco.

That kinda thing is probably relatable for many of you here, albeit with different games!

Kidfried

Thrillho

@Kidfried Yeah, Disco can be a bit heavy going and probably benefits from dedicating a bit of time to it so I can see why you’d find sitting and chilling with Chicory more relaxing.

@Kidfried Yeah I can totally relate Kido! After a hard days slog, sometimes I find it difficult to concentrate on anything too demanding. So it is good to a game you can just chill with. I can't think of anything specific at the moment as things have been pretty easy going since working from, but that should change shortly, so I might need one soon.

@Kidfried Yeah, I can relate.
For me, it seems like the barrier to entry back into some games is just the time and mental energy investment to get back “up to speed” with the game. So after a few long work days and time away, would I rather just pop in Returnal and churn out 30-60 minutes of mindless shooting and grinding, even though I can’t save my place in the game, or do I want to try to get back into A Plague Tale which I have adored but still need to finish yet would have to invest the first 30 minutes relearning how to play and where I am in the game….😅… I usually go with the path of least resistance and choose the game that requires the least amount of mental energy at the time. Although Returnal isn’t a “chill” game in the sense that Chicory seems to be, it is uncomplicated and automatic arcadey fun — muscle memory has kicked in and so I just turn my brain off and destroy villainous creatures in Biome 4 for an hour, then shut it off. 😄

Of course lately I end up just turning on the prime time Olympic coverage and watch the fastest, strongest, and most acrobatic people on earth display near super-human feats.

@Kidfried Without wanting to do Chicory a disservice, I think we've all got a couple of "mindless" games in our collections, for just such occasions. Whether it's a multiplayer shooter or a retro classic, or even just collectathon busywork in an open world sandbox, it's a support mechanism unique to gaming in that you're being occupied, you're getting a sense of achievement, but you're not having to think. Just one of the many ways gaming is superior to other art forms, at least in my opinion.

Here's hoping your project is coming together / comes together soon!
