Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Quick question re Steam. The Steam Client no longer supports my OSX and I'm unable to upgrade to the latest OSX for all sorts of infuriating reasons. So as it stands I can open the Client and play my games but I cannot access the store, my cloud saves and, presumably, any patches. All of that is fin...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Also, as a quick aside, one of the most active members when I joined was Todinho. I really miss his contributions, particularly concerning RPGs. Anyone know what he's up to these days? No idea, but that's what happens when you get booted out of this forum for being a misogynist dick. Ah, I see. Did...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I was one of the people that called this forum an echo chamber. Cards on the table, I honestly don't know why I said it. There's more confrontation, and prickly members, on here now than when I first joined in 2016, which makes my criticism even more non-sensical. Over the past few months I've been ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I took a chance on Vampyr and so far I've been pleasantly surprised. It's a genre-debut by a mid-tier indie studio and viewed in that light it's a minor-classic. What it lacks in graphical heft and combat fluidity it makes up for with bags of character. Really enjoying the fundamental importance pla...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Elder Scrolls Online - I bought a collected edition of this yesterday, which includes the upcoming expansion. It sounds like a barely credible April Fool's joke except it really happened. I've been rattling my brain all day trying to make sense of that moment of madness. A rush of blood to the head...

Re: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

That's 100% my experience. You can cheesecake them into calming down for the first deathblow (sic) but then they're permanently aggro and if you bugger off and hope they'll calm down, they'll have reset which I guess is exactly because they don't want you to do that. It encourages you to embrace bo...

Re: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Most mini-bosses that I've encountered have 2 deathblows. I've tried to cheese a couple of them into resetting their alert status but it never works. Has anyone been able to do that with a mini-boss? I've read that you can only stealth them for the first health bar as they won't settle back down af...

Nice one. Is that the chained one? I didn't think you could stealth him up. Interesting!
I think you can stealth every mini-boss, certainly those I've encountered so far.

I am pants at this. Have died about twenty times to "chained ogre". I need to set aside a solid few consecutive hours to really get into it.
There's a certain prosthetic attachment that makes that fight a lot easier.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm 24 hours into Sekiro. I'm making decent enough progress into the different areas while still managing to avoid the main troublemakers. Although I spent 4 very frustrating hours yesterday trying to down a key mini-boss before walking away empty handed. Thankfully he's optional so I'll return even...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Sorry to go off topic, but do you need to have watched the other Xmen films before Logan? I fancied watching it, but never saw any of the hundred million or so other ones. Definitely not. In fact I'd recommend not watching them beforehand. I'm sure there's some masturbatory explanation that ties Lo...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

The faux outage every month strikes me as faintly ridiculous. Oh make no mistake, there's no faux outrage from me. Im genuinely angry they slashed the service whilst increasing the price. PS+ is the games for me. I very rarely play online, so I'm almost the exact opposite in that I pay for the game...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I wish I had played it when it came out and before it had been slightly spoiled or even bettered in Logan. That's an intriguing comparison. Care to expand on it? I mean, it's not a 1 for 1 comparison, and "bettered" is probably a bit troll-ish on my part. But, grizzled old man who's done with it br...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

See, my main concern with dropping to two games per month, is that we'll miss out on all those little underappreciated indie games we used to get. Games like Flame Over or Neon Chrome that I wouldn't have looked twice at but ended up playing the hell out of them because they were there and free. Tw...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Sekiro. I've just beaten the first boss. So that's 12 hours, 4 minutes and 4 seconds for one boss and three mini-bosses. There's even some online debate about what actually constitutes a boss given the sheer amount of challenging foes peppered throughout the game. It's all just a little bit terrify...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

1. Sekiro. 10 hours in and I've just arrived at the first true boss. About 20 unsuccessful attempts last night. He's an absolute bastard. 2. Divinity: Original Sin 2. I'm playing this on the easiest difficulty, designed for those that just want to enjoy the story. And of course my party is getting ...

Plus I have a wild two year old, so keeping your ears free is handy 😄.
Ah, of course! My days are numbered in that regard. My partner is just finishing her degree and after that it's all guns blazing. It's the last days of disco.
