    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Indeed. Makes me wonder what other content I've missed, lurking there for me to discover after all this time. After 200 hours. Astonishing.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Cool, yep when I get home I'll let you know. I played a bit more this morning, found 2 more contracts and another full on side quest. This game keeps on giving. Just clocked over 200 hours, and that's on a single playthrough.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    I fire this up every now and again, and just wander around. I played the game without question marks so I could explore naturally, but post completion I've uncovered them so I can dip in and look for new content from time to time. I always hope to stumble upon a new quest when I play, but tend to do a few monster nests then turn it off. I figured there's not much content left otherwise. Anyway, during tonight's revisit to the game I stumbled across a new village and found a new contract. Brilliant. I ended up taking magic Mushrooms (part of the quest) and talking to Roach, which was exquisite Geralt lamenting her (him?!) for being able to cross the ocean when he whistles, whilst at other times so easily getting stuck on fences. Amazing scenes!

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I guess there's an assumption people should do all said padding. Personally, I love it, so at each of the areas I've rinsed all the content (all side quests, leaders, locations etc) and the result is that there are some other islands that I've over-levelled, some of which are now raising to meet my current level 20. How long I continue to do this for, I don't know. And considering I suck at games (I had to give up Sekiro) I haven't had any issue with the difficulty. Playing on normal, and I've died only a handful of times; a couple of times on the boar and then a few other times when I've been slack in my approach to things. I'm not really sure how people are dying so easily when you can move and dodge almost every attack that comes in (at least, I seem to be able to). Even when you have loads of enemies attacking you at once, if you spam the dodge button you can essentially fly around all the attacks and avoid everything. My tactics during open combat is to keep moving and get in the odd swipe to raise my adrenaline, then use the hero strike to pick them all off. Maybe it's my choice of abilities, but I don't really feel in much danger if I concentrate. If I do get overwhelmed I use the vanish ability.

    Yeah that was the spot!

    Thanks for the tips. I left the two phantoms alone for a bit, found some more neuromods, invested in turret repair, then paid them another visit and took them out with a couple of the turrets in the lobby. Was satisfying. I did need to finish one of them off with a shotgun blast. Getting to grips with it now.

    Prey (2017) - Update and Mooncrash DLC available now!

    Just started playing this (the base game). I love the premise and the atmosphere (I've just started exploring the main lobby), but finding it extremely hard. It seems like a random game of chance dealing with these mimics, they just fly around all over the place. And those big bastard Phantoms are annoying, there's a section I've got too where there are two of them. The first one I encountered was taken down with a turret so I think I need to slow down and not charge around exploring.

    I died a couple of times on the boar, due to silly mistakes of my own making. Otherwise not too bad. Hero strike and the healing power got me through it.

    Let's talk damage types... Am I right in thinking that any damage during melee (apart from Hero Strike) will use warrior damage so it's pointless actually using a sword that buffs assassin damage? There are two weapon slots obviously, so I'm thinking that having any weapon equipped that gives me the best assassin damage buff is key whilst sneaking, but that when my stealth goes to shit I should actually be using a sword that buffs warrior damage? Also, is there any reason why I shouldn't swap all my gear out for warrior damage buffing gear for conquests? Considering it's basically a melee battlefield at that point?

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    Playing this at the moment, and seriously loving it. I hyped myself up over the Division 2 and Sekiro, but ended up trying this when getting a new PC recently and have shelved all other games. Quite surprising really, I didn't think it would grab me so much. I love all the gameplay loops. It just plays so well. Combat is fun, but nuanced enough to elevate itself over previous AC games. I think Origins was similar, but I didn't play that. I've decided to go for an Assassin damage build, falling back to the sword when my sneaking plans go to shit I like the engraving system, so I can compliment my gear with some warrior damage even though that's not my main focus. I've just noticed that there seems to be an option to toggle between gear sets now. Is that new? I'm sure it's just appeared in the menu. There was a big update (4gb) a couple of days ago. Finding everything a challenge, but not too bad (on normal difficulty). I had some problems with a boar in a clearing (mid fight he sends a whole load of his pig buddies after you!) but managed it after a couple of tries despite it being a bit of a slog. After the first failure I invested in the ability that heals you, so that helped with the fight. Otherwise I'm not having too much trouble sneaking my way around the bases, and sweeping up stragglers with the hero strike ability.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I managed to get my PC working by clearing the CMOS battery. But holy hell, I suck at this game. It took me absolutely ages to get out of the very first tutorial area. I'm just not consistent with my parrying, so I clear a few enemies without trouble but then make a mistake and I'm dead. I just don't think I'm gonna be cut out for this game

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    So my PC has died I left it on overnight (downloading the game), and I've come down to find it turn off and it won't post now. Looks like the error code on the motherboard is reporting the memory is at fault. Lovely timing

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Gonna be getting stuck into this shortly. I'm scared I'm not sure what I was thinking really... I tried and failed to play Dark Souls 1 & 2... just way too hard for me. I got sucked into the Sekiro hype in the same way that I did for those games, but silently hoped this would be easier. It seems not. I'm excited by the fresh approach, but I'm really gonna suck at this. The dragonrot mechanic seems very harsh. Let's see how I get on

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I'm still not 100% sure if it's just resurrection that brings in the rot. I've seen at least two guides written by professional sites that suggest only resurrecting does it, but individuals on forums have noted that they didn't resurrect and the rot still kicked in. So I don't know what is correct. Can anyone clarify? What I do know... (spoiler regarding the rot)
