    Games you keep buying despite not liking them

    Like Dark Souls people try, on their very first attempts, to 'win'. This is the absolute wrong approach. You're just going to waste time and get angry/confused. You're never going to win your first match unless you're playing against a CPU on baby difficulty. The best method is to simply take on a pacifist playstyle and try to stay alive for as long as possible. This is how I play against every single boss in every single new game I play, or when I'm new to a vs. fighter. Concentrate on movement most of all, possibly some evasion (if the games evasion mechanics are simple enough), and also try to scope out or 'download' the opponents attacks - see what you can get away with. If you make yourself three to five to ten times harder to hit you're going to be Bruce Lee in no time. People flailing/windmilling in on Smash (or any vs. fighter, really) is similar to burning through a full stock of blood vials on Bloodborne during your first attempt at a new boss. You're just wasting your time and energy, and you'll be forcing yourself to go back and farm - or to come to a forum and look for help.

    I don't even have the time to buy the games I like.

    The Random WoW Thread

    Also, anyone saying vanilla/classic plays slow need to remind themselves just how quickly the game can actually be pushed: I'm absolutely hooked on exploiting the lack of global cooldown on things like Cold Snap, Iron Grenades and the rotation of various trinkets into the cast chain, Tidal Charm being a favourite. So awesome when the interrupts 'break' the character animations. That said I'm likely going to be going Destruction Warlock again. Hardly a good idea with my limited game time these days, but let's see.

    Yoshi's Crafted World

    This looks like a videogame.

    If moonwalk strafing isn't in Classic I'll be unsubbing immediately.
  6. I'm looking out for a Sony BVM-14M4DE PSU board (G-board) if anyone knows where I can find one. Cheers.

    Nintendo Switch

    I might actually get Diablo despite owning the original on PC (without DLC). Depends on if a mate or two grab it along with me.

    Where did you order from pal? I was going to order from the US but that seems pointless if you can order direct from the source.

    Vanquish and Bayonetta are in a weekend deal. €6.79 each.
  10. I prefer enemies with set routines over AI. Part of the game being the necessity to break down and exploit said routines to your benefit. The more complex and varied these routines (and ultimately how their actions meld with what's in your toolkit) the better. Things feel a lot more fun that way, but I'm old fashioned.

    PS1 Appreciation Thread

    I gave Vagrant Story a few hours the other week. The story was instantly engaging (how I miss that...) and it looks immense. It was so easy to dismiss PSX stuff back in 2000 when the Dreamcast was in its stride.

    Is crunch required?

    In Rockstar's case that'd be more like five to ten years. Another option would be to double or triple the size of their teams, along with their respective budgets. Probably the best option would be to put the RLLMUK hive-mind into management. That'd really turn their company around.

    This is a problem associated with all desk jobs.

    I still adore DKC I & II. Tough as nails from around midway onwards as well (DKC II gets tougher earlier - a great continuation). Great fun when sharing the pad with mates for that reason.

    Bayonetta - PC version out now!

    I don't think I can push much more out of this one. Interestingly the Tetsuzanko jump cancels also double up as enemy-step, meaning you can cancel them indefinitely as long as you have the orbs.
