  1. I seem to say this every six months or so with different titles - last time it was God of War, and before that Horizon - but this is the best looking game I've ever played. It astonishes me every time I load it up. Like @sir stiff_one, I've recently discovered Saint Denis for the first time after never venturing to the west of the map before, and it's absolutely stunning, more so because I never even knew it was there and thought the entire game took place in the countryside and small rural towns. I've said it elsewhere, but the lack of a photomode in this is criminal. Having said that, if there was one I'd doubt I'd ever actually do any missions but would just spend my time trying to get the nicest shot.

    Vane - New game from former Team ICO members

    The lack of reviews seems pretty telling. I'd like to be proved wrong as I've had my eye on this since it was announced, bit it's not sounding good.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Yeah, sod that for a laugh. Thankfully completing it doesn't contribute to anything.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    You need it to get the complete ending, I believe. You can semi-cheese the entire area, though, by equipping

    Aye, I've got that set up. Wasn't at home to check is all. The eshop prices website is good as well, but it hadn't updated when I posted.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    That's the most Meat Boy-y bit in the game, however, and it's optional. The game is first and foremost a Metroidvania rather than a platformer, although some boss battles are almost bullet hell-esque with the number of projectiles and stuff on screen you have to avoid.

    A load of old shite then! Oh well. Just as well really. I really want Celeste and/or Mark of the Ninja to go on sale.

    Has the eshop updated with any new sale games yet?

    Your shameful gaming secrets

    I spent all of my Saturday job money on a copy of God of War on the PS2 when it come out. I played it happily for several hours until I got to a point where there was some kind of game breaking glitch that stopped me from being able to make any progress whatsoever. Instead of just taking the game back to the shop, which is what I should have done, I signed up to an online game rental service, which were still around in those days, ordered a copy of the game, swapped my broken game with the rental one, sent it back to the rental company, immediately cancelled my subscription to them, and then merrily carried on with GoW from where I left off. I also sold my brother's copy of Harvest Moon on the GameCube that he got for his birthday so that I could buy another game. I remember getting naff all for it and it's worth quite a lot now, I think. He still moans about it to this day.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Is that ninja to say 'I'm a ninja for defeating the Mantis Lords', or is it to say 'I was lying about being a ninja; I didn't really defeat the Mantis Lords and am now scared that my secret will be discovered'? If it's the latter, then, without wanting to sound like a twat, they're really not that difficult as they only have two attacks, from memory - the slam from the top of the screen and swipe across, and the boomerang thing - both of which can easily be avoided with practice. Keep going, as the area you unlock by killing them is truly special.

    Have you ever completely mastered a game?

    I got the platinum on Hotline Miami on the Vita. That took some doing, although the game had such a fantastic rhythm to it that I enjoyed doing it. Made me feel like Neo. I also got the platinum on MGS Ground Zeroes, which I really enjoyed, moreso than V.

    Is there 'proper' gameplay in West of Loathing, or it it all terribly ironic and hipster (and not much fun), like Undertale?
  13. Thanks @MarkN. In other news, the bombardiers in the Clocktower can get tae fuk.
  14. Just beat the Conceirge! Third attempt. It was pretty touch and go but he fell to the might of my sinew slicers. Onwards! Should I concentrate on carrying on the 'main' path or shall I try to get more of the upgrade runes? I still haven't got what I'm guessing are a ground pound-type move and a wall jump of some description. And are the timed gates worth it? I've only opened one of them, and while it was nice to get all the stuff inside, it meant that I'd run past all the scrolls so I was quite weak for the next area with only the base 100HP.
  15. Do the bosses respawn each time once you beat them, or do they stay dead like in DS?
