  1. Very late to this party, but this was true in the original game as well. And people say Sephiroth is a bad guy.this looks like gold.
  2. Plat #460: Ghost of Tsushima.

     

    It might be my game of the generation thus far.

     

    Given that TLoU2 beat it for GOTY in 2020, that’s gotta mean that Abby and company will provide even greater entertainment when I pick it up this week from the library.

  3. Well, it’s 90% off again, and there’s still a bunch of 0.00% out there.
  4. God, is there a worse review site than Polygon? There’s nothing quite like some white guy named Joshua pontificating on the “dissonance” of the Ghost of Tsushima narrative with actual history. Mix that with an unhealthy dose of edge and gamer self-hate, and you’ve got one shitty bunch of words.

     

    And all I wanted was to know how I could access Iki island…

      @MarcusPunisher: I like a bit of Kotaku’s reviews. They certainly have their embarrassment (I’ll link a terrible article tomorrow that purports to complain about DQXI’s soundtrack, when in fact it just wants to shit on the composer), but they’ve written a couple of astute reviews that I’ve seen.

       

      But Polygon has never written anything like a good review, at least among the ones I’ve read. Their stuff is always this meta shit. I don’t know what VG247 is.

      Kotaku, ACG.

       

      Whats wrong with white people?

      ACG. Don’t know that one, either. I’ve got stuff to do!

       

      Nothing wrong with white people. Plenty wrong with white people playing historical/cultural white Knight for non-white people.

       

      (My iPad just corrected “people” to “peoples” three separate times. Weird.

  5. So, I have a question. I've gone all in on Fell Seal, picking up the DLC as well as the main game (a rarity for me). Given that the DLC is installed, is there anything I should watch out for while playing? Is there anything I could do that might cause unnecessary grinding by the end? I've certainly looked at the updates on the guide; I'm looking for more general knowledge. In short, am I still safe to smell the roses in my playthrough (watching out for the missable trophy of course)?
  6. It was OK. I mean, it didn't stick around that long at all, so I don't know how it could be that boring (I think I platted it in 3 hours). 😄 To the TC, there are a few kiddie games on the PS3 that are reasonably fun. One I remember liking was Monsters vs. Aliens.
  7. Alas, what a tragic history it was. 😢
  8. I can’t say with 100% certainty, but I’ve tested it quite a bit (over two iterations of the game), and found absolutely no difference in drop rates.
  9. Hmmm. So there’s a local MP trick for the stupid Lich? Good to know.
  10. It’s been a while since I platted the PS3 version, but combat is very loose there (it is on the ps4 version, too). I wouldn’t worry too much about combos; it’s hard to lock down swarming enemies. The most important thing I can tell you is, unless you’re just aching for the challenge, do not play on Hard mode. Take my word for it: even if you think it improves drop rates (and every experiment I’ve run in this game suggests it doesn’t), it’s not worth the hassle. Also, you’ll probably want a better weapon. Weapons are absurdly unbalanced in this game. Get yourself a Phoenix weapon (at least two of them, and maybe ALL of them, can just be bought from towns), and you’ll be unstoppable. Leveling is always an option, though I’ve read that on Hard mode, enemies level as well, which goes back to point 1. Sorry I don’t have more “strategy” for you. I never really saw much strategy in the combat of this game, though.
  11. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. The trophy streak survived my trip…barely.

      Thanks. Hope you had a good one too. 🦃

  12. The "big name" sale isn't as exciting to me as the indie sale, but there are some good deals here. I won't be getting any of them, though (Fell Seal awaits).
  13. Hmmm. I don't know if I answered this before, but it's probably Lenneth Valkyrie. Oh yeah - you probably need the music, too:
  14. So, I know there are no trophies, but...is anyone playing Deltarune? It's pretty damn good. Chapter 1 was a bit...introductory, but chapter 2 moves well.

     

    I'm wondering if there will be a nasty surprise for full pacifists in this one. It's weird just how much the one party member pushes for sparing everyone.

      Yeah, thanks for reminding me there. Toby the Fox and I often disagree on certain narrative and stylistic choices, but his work tends to stick with me regardless. I guess I should chalk it up to the inherent cognitive incompatibility between a vulpine brain and a human one...

      If you guys like Undertale, Deltarune is a no-brainer. It’s a little slow in its release schedule, but it’s completely free.

      I literally never heard of this game before.

  15. Well, I have some doubt, but it does seem reasonable that SMTV would show up. It's a pretty big market to ignore completely.
