  1. Nuclear Throne

    I like the combo of a melee weapon and "Stress" (rate of fire increases the less health you have).
  2. Nuclear Throne

    Gamma Guts doesn't protect you from all damage from enemies touching you. It depends on the enemy I think. It's really useful though - and it's very satisfying to take out Big Bandit in an instant with it I've never reached the throne. I've been playing it since early access launched on PC and now on PS4. Still love it. Did get to the throne once and got trolled massively. I won't spoil it here - it did make me laugh though. The PS4 version is gagging for a patch though. Really crashy. Leaderboards hardly ever work either, usually giving an error or crashing to the dashboard.
  3. I accidentally negged that brilliant pic. So sorry!
  4. Had some excellent races tonight with Joe McSpeed, Colbaker and others - private lobby seemed to be working perfectly. This game is so good these days.
  5. Mad Max "Shiny & Chrome"

    Very much enjoying this. Tend to game in short spurts these days, so repetitiousness can be a blessing (I'd forget how to play the bloody thing otherwise). Has anyone else noticed that some of Max's dialogue seems to have been recorded with a different actor, doing a very strange impersonation of the main guy? Or is it just me?
  6. Mad Max "Shiny & Chrome"

    Anyone spotted any good deals for this in bricks & mortar shops? And the repetition doesn't bother me at all going in - I only ever really play games in snatched bursts, an hour or two here and there. In fact I probably actually prefer games that are a bit repetitive, so I don't forget how to play it between sessions
  7. This holiday season's essential games

    Release date just confirmed as August 4th! Sadly the Vita version is "on ice" though
  8. Garden woman should become clear later in the second run. There's an item you can buy that makes moving around the boat a lot quicker/easier, too.
  9. That wasn't meant to sound as arsey as it did
  10. I'm not sure what there is to get. You unlock crew, all of which will either sell you upgrades or other modifiers, or will do something special at a crucial point in the game. Other than that it's the monsters you "recruit" along the way (using the strongman guy) which also add modifiers. It's just a visual menu really.
  11. BTW - if anyone's reading this, I'd only buy it from the Play Store for Android. Luca says there's been a couple of versions of it up on the Amazon app store that aren't him, although they did kindly leave his address on there for support queries.
  12. I'm old and shit at games, and I'm about to finish it for the second time. I mean, there are periods of play where it's tough to beat the quests - but I found if you knuckle under and later on make use of the other things that are available from the crew, you can get through it.
  13. Thought and Strength are currency to unlock crew for your ship - you don't do that until a little way in. It has no effect on your abilities, but it's always good to match them to clear space for (hopefully) more swords staves and shields.
  14. Well I finished it and immediately "prestiged". Still loving it.
  15. Like its predecessor, this has consumed my life for the past few days. Fantastic stuff.
