  1. Been plodding along in the GoG version of Sunless Sea. I'm tempted to get it on PS4 and have a go at getting the plat, but I know it would be long, frustrating and probably ruin the enjoyment for me. Otherwise I've been stuck in that rut of wanting something to really sink my teeth into, but then looking at my collection and feeling like I have nothing to play. Thought I might try a bit of trophy cleanup so I started up This War of Mine again but the enthusiasm isn't there for that game. Just feeling a bit lost at the moment really.
  2. Not so far. I've finished the minigame, but I don't think I'm ever going to manage to finish without dying.
  3. Started trying to do this yesterday and it's so fucking frustrating. It's more RNG based than skill and it's so unresponsive. Coins are entirely random, monster spawn is random, item spawn is random. Sometimes monsters will come in small groups, sometimes they'll swarm in groups of 6 from 3 sides. I only managed to complete a normal run because I lucked out in 3-3 and got 3 sheriff stars spawn one after the other. That red imp spawn is insane. I've died so many times just from apparently not aiming the correct way. Trying to fire upwards but it's still going diagonal. I've died because apparently I got too close to an enemy but other times it won't kill me for getting closer than before. It just seems random on whether it decides you died. I could get behind a trophy to just complete the game, but to complete it without dying? Really? Fuck you man.
  4. Trying to get the annoying trophy Fector's Quest in Stardew Valley so then I can forget about it for the rest of the game. I hate that minigame so damn much. I got to the last level and died when the boss had maybe 2 hits left. I would understand a trophy for finishing the minigame, but for finishing it without dying? /groan
  5. #38. Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage Gateway to Glimmer Loved it. Though again, I think when stuff has too much detail it loses personality and cuteness, why did they give the crabs mouths? Just give them googly eyes and a cute snip snip noise like the old ones. #39. Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon What better why to hide the loneliness of Christmas than by burying yourself in a children's game that you only thought was 'okay' when you were a child? My least favourite of the trilogy both then and now. Mostly because of the area doors, backtracking, and the other playable characters. I only ever liked Sheila in the original, now I don't like any of them. I'd be surprised if Sheila's new thiccness wasn't the result of the designer being a furry lol
  6. Finished both Spyro 2 and 3. 100% Spyro 2, but not 3. Loved them both, though not fond of the changes they made to Shelia in 3. She looks like a bobble toy, or that she's been made 'thicc' for the furries. Spyro 3 was always my least favourite and this time was no different. I didn't encounter any bugs but I don't like the little amount of backtracking and the event doors. Camera was a bit fucky in places, but otherwise it's all great. Spyro 1 will always be the favourite with 2 close behind. 3 is the bastard child that was probably good that it was the last. Edit: That's 11 games finished this year.
  7. I'm hoping to get the Spyro games completed by the new year, but I've been having PC and internet problems and I've just been trying to deal with that. I have to disassemble the PC I built, to send a part back, which they'll test and if they don't find the same fault they'll send it back to me and I'm back at square one in trying to diagnose the problem.
  8. Congratulations on your promotion, having your priorities right is never something to apologise for.
  9. #37. Spyro the Dragon Loved every moment of it, though I'm not sure I ever realised just how short it is or how small the levels are. So much nostalgia here with only a couple of minor gripes. The new gliding took a while to get used to, in the old game, he would go straight from a jump to a glide, now he does a little dip/swoop thing that loses you quite a bit of air, it makes gliding a lot more unreliable than it was or probably should be. I'm not sure that I liked that they turned Twilight Harbor from what was obviously a weapons factory, into a paint factory, but whatever I guess. The environments were beautiful, the soundtrack was beautiful, but I found I wasn't able to switch between the original and the remaster for some reason. They really did a marvelous job with this remake, it's a shame about Activision. I really enjoyed Spyro's movements and his little bounce/run thing. It really does the original games justice. One thing I found odd though, and maybe it's nostalgia and bias talking, but enemies and dragons seemed to have less 'personality' than before. They made each dragon different, which is cool, but.. I don't know. The dragon in Dark Hollow that said the little gnorcs wouldn't bother him was because he was a big, strong dragon. In this, he's just reading a book, that little thing doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Enemies don't look so cute or 'naughty', they just look like generic mobs. I don't know, maybe it is my bias, but this seems to be a case of less is more. Perhaps because of the reduced graphics, we have to imagine a lot of the expression on the characters, with much more advanced graphics, the expression and personality is done for you. Either way, the game is awesome and I can see myself replaying it again like I do the originals every now and then. Onto Spyro 2!
  10. Finished the story in Spyro the Dragon and got the 120% and the plat. Loved every moment of it, though I'm not sure I ever realised just how short it is or how small the levels are.

  11. Bought a pre-owned copy of the Spyro trilogy. Apparently it was a Christmas gift but the kids had been naughty? lol Their loss is my gain I guess. Looking forward into digging into this and wiping some dust off of that nostalgia. I still haven't got around to platting Danganronpa but it's on my to-do list.
  12. Finished the main story for Torchlight. I'm not going to bother for the 100%. From what I hear Torchlight 2 improves a lot on Torchlight, but this is definitely a good ARPG if you want an alternative to Diablo to scratch that itch. There's not really much in the way of story, it's the gameplay that keeps it going but even then, the classes feel pretty restricted. There's not enough substance to the game to make you want to play through it more than once to try out the other classes or try out different builds. This is one of those games that's really good when it first releases, but is later overshadowed by it's successor and other names.
  13. No. I thought he was alright up until his Guild Wars 2 mount licenses video. He only made a video about that because people begged him to, he openly said he hadn't played the game and didn't understand what was going on. But that 'he'd been told' and he 'had an idea' of what was going on, and then proceeded to spout a ton of misleading and outright wrong information. I don't entirely think his stuck-up attitude is 100% fake and I think his self-righteousness is completely real, but his job could be said to be an important one. Although sadly, where TB would call out a game, the devs, and say what was wrong or would need improvement, JS just shits on everything and cries about lootboxes while he compares everything to Dark Souls.
  14. Hey guys, my old mouse has died a death after a good 6-8 years of service. It was a Mad Catz MMO7 and they don't make them anymore, so I'm having trouble finding a replacement. The new models of Mad Catz mice all lack a decent amount of buttons. I've recently bought a Patriot Viper V570 Blackout, but it's absolutely huge and I can't reach some of the buttons. Requirements: At least 10 buttons Suitable for small hands Allows for a claw grip, not a palm grip Wired Budget: £70/$90 I get some of this could be subjective, but any suggestions would be great.
  15. Finished the story and loved every moment. I wish there was more of these games, but at least I have another 2 to to enjoy yet. Anyone got any opinions on whether to play Ultra Despair Girls?
