  1. Apologies for the tardy response to the reports of the post above, but Orbital2060 has now been banned for 72 hours. It seems as if the discussion remained civil afterwards, but as a polite warning please note that the next person who makes a bullshit post like that in the thread will get a week's ban. /mod

    Unconvincing argument there, so moved to Food & Drink.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Still slogging my way through DMD. I managed to beat Mission 12 and now I get to go back to playing Nero with whom I seem to be best (which no doubt makes me a filthy casual at DMC games but I'm not embarrassed to admit it ). This feels a lot harder than DmC and I don't remember DMC4 being this brutal, but that was a long time ago and I seem to recall that I only managed to finish DMC4 after playing it virtually every night over four months so yeah, time investment required. I'm getting better at styling it with Dante, but Furies absolutely wipe the floor with me (with Nero too for that matter), and I tend to get battered in the boss fights. Slowly getting better at using Royal Guard though. At one point I thought I was in Swordmaster, so did something like back then forwards+Style, but I was still in Royal Guard and ended up doing some weird stance where Dante stood there waving his arms slowly through the air and I was invulnerable to the Fury's attacks. Does anyone recognise this move and how to do it? *checks internet* Apparently that was Royal Revenge. Cool.

    Detective Pikachu movie

    I tried watching it but her accent and phrasing wound me up massively. Honestly I couldn't tell if it was actually a review, or just a series of observations with zero criticism.

    Detective Pikachu movie

    It was great. More impressions later perhaps when I'm on a proper computer but it was fun, had heart and was downright hilarious at times. I got a Milo vibe from Roger Clifford in the film but possibly just me? PS Do kindly fuck off @probotector.

    For once, I get a film in Japan before the rest of you fuckers. I'm watching it tomorrow (English dub, Japanese sub-titles) at 1pm, and it's pretty much sold out which is faintly bizarre. I'm also doing Endgame and Shazam on either side of it so my eyeballs are going to be fucked afterwards but it'll be worth it.

    The Rllmuk Metal Thread Part 2

    Meanwhile, my former band has finally finished their third album (the previous album was released in 2007) and if you like your progressive death with hints of black, melodic death and maybe some sludge, then you might just like it. https://apocalypticwitchcraft.bandcamp.com/album/a-fine-game-of-nil (from the previous album - The Difference Engine)

    I was originally going to say that this was a poor cover of the Racer X original, until I discovered that the original was by Blue Oyster Cult. At any rate, both the original and the Racer X version are better.

    An open-ended fighting game with these mechanics? Oh man, I'd lose hours/days/weeks/months of my life playing such a game. We can but dream.

    Capcom have announced that they have stopped development, and no DLC will be released. This is a crying shame, but I guess paves the way for the inevitable DMCVSE to come out in due course with Vergil as a playable character, and perhaps that hinted-at Ladies Night mission set with Lady and Trish. Meanwhile, I'm up to Mission 11 on DMD and I'm getting better at the individual fights, often getting 5000+ for Style, but keep getting utterly trounced by the boss. I was fucking around with Royal Guard and was able to block a few attacks, so I might try that mission on SoS to practice. Alternatively I could try and get to the equivalent wave on BP but that might take a lot longer lol.

    Devil May Cry 5

    I can't remember where I'm up on to DMD, but I think I'm on the Dante missions now. I'm blatantly just using gold orbs for V and Dante, especially on the V boss fights (the plant boss gets an upgrade for DMD that pasted me), as I still don't know what I'm doing. I seem to be doing okay with Nero and managed to S rank a few of his DMD missions. I'm just pissing about going back and forth in the difficulties. Finally managed to S rank all the Human levels, and I'm chipping away at the Devil Hunter ones now, but really I should get through DMD and then go back because in theory I should have more skills right?
  12. On that note, if the mods see another example of that nickname or something similar being used in threads ("typo" or otherwise) then that user will be getting banned. Argue, agree, disagree, agree to disagree, whatever, but that kind of childish sniping bullshit needs to stop now. Thank you.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Yeah, I was playing with a guy on the same mission and difficulty who then seemingly dropped out after we'd killed all the lesser knights and left me alone for the main boss. It took me ages I don't remember DMD in DmC and DMC4 being this much of a slog. Increasing enemy damage, giving them more health and devil triggers is one thing, but it feels like I have to smash the harder enemies for absolutely ages before they eventually die. Anyway, on to mission 8 with V again before Dante shows up and I get absolutely battered on every boss from there on out. I am getting marginally better at switching between Swordmaster and Trickster to close the gap with teleporting enemies, with occasional Gunslinger use. I'm still rubbish with Royal Guard though so doing mission 10 with no weapons even on Human difficulty was a slog, especially the boss. Playing DMC5, I'm still amazed at how I managed to S rank all the DMC4 Dante levels on all required difficulties just using Swordmaster. This time around, it feels as if just relying on Swordmaster would just be limiting. I guess I still need to git gud.
  14. Sniper Alley on Mombasa, the valley bit on Delta Halo with all the insect fuckers, the Hunters in that giant throne room (also Delta Halo?) and that prison level on the Covenant home world/ship were the worst sections in the game from what I remember. I'm honestly in no rush to go back to them on Legendary, but being a glutton for punishment I went straight into Halo on Legendary and I'm getting my arse handed to me on every damn level. It's been a painful grind and I'm only on The Silent Cartographer. Fuck knows how I did this first time around, and making the par times? Lol.

    For the achievement/trophy? Being old school they don't stack, plus there's another one for S ranking every mission on every difficulty bar the easiest (which isn't actually Human, it's one called Heaven or Hell where all enemies die with one hit and is only unlocked after beating the game on Dante Must Die difficulty [the one after SoS])
