  1. Wordle 290 4/6* 🟨⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬛🟨⬛🟨⬛ ⬛🟩🟨🟨⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Tricksy.
  2. Wordle 289 6/6* ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟨🟨⬛⬛ 🟩🟨🟩⬛⬛ 🟩⬛🟩🟨⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Squeaked it.
  3. Wordle 288 3/6* ⬛⬛🟨⬛⬛ 🟩⬛🟨🟩⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Second guess doing most of the heavy lifting today. Is it just me or does it get a bit easier when you have the first letter nailed down?
  4. Don't think so - pretty much means dumping your armour quickly and going in naked. You rely on the Mimic to tank and keep your distance. Works best for ranged builds of course.
  5. Comet Azur and Stars of Ruin is a very spicy combo.
  6. Yes, cycles through and uses everything (including quick items) and never runs out of FP. It's a beast.
  7. Although what you can do is equip heavy armor so they can tank and then unequip after summoning so that you can float like a butterfly....
  8. As far as I'm aware it's an exact copy of 'you' at the point it is summoned so you would need to have appropriate weapons/gear equipped.
  9. Honestly, Mimic is a step above the rest. The fact that you can equip them as you see fit to match the enemy makes them extremely versatile and when you get them to +10 they are amazingly durable. Honourable mentions to: Tiche - Tough, nimble and good in melee or at a distance. Absolutely top tier. Lhutel the Headless - The first 'good' spirit ash I got. Carried me through a good chunk of the game. Tough as old boots and can teleport around kicking arse as and where required. Fanged Imp - You know how annoying those bloody imps are in various catacombs and dungeons? Yep, you get you own gank squad to back you up. Ancient Dragon Knight Kristoff - You like lightning? You got lightning. Good as backup for non-faith builds. Greatshield Soldier - 5 guys turtling behind their greatshields. Great for running interference while you get down to business.
  10. Wordle 287 2/6* 🟩🟨⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Could today's wordle be any more suited to RLLMUK! Watching as the 2s and 3s roll in 🤣
  11. Wordle 286 3/6* ⬛⬛⬛⬛🟨 🟨🟨🟨⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Satisfying one today. Great when you get a chance to use your deductive powers as opposed to panicky guessing!
  12. Time spent = SNES - Mario Kart - pretty much omnipresent during my time at uni - winner stays on.... Sim = PS1 - Gran Turismo 2 - lots of cars, lots of tuning, lots of fun. Feels = Arcade - Outrun - if you are of a certain age and remember feeding 10p coins into arcade cabs you will know where I'm coming from.
  13. Wordle 285 6/6* ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬛🟨⬛⬛⬛ ⬛⬛🟨🟨🟨 🟨🟩⬛🟩🟩 ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Another 6. I feel like my number might be up soon; certainly skating on thin ice this week. 80 streak today though, so there is that.
  14. This is a very minor niggle all things considered but I agree wholeheartedly. The end of the game is pretty much a boss rush and there isn't really anywhere left to explore when you get there so you have to bang your head against them until you win or you give up. It's very much a niggle though - the game is an all timer for sure.
  15. Snap! Wordle 284 4/6* ⬛⬛⬛⬛🟨 🟩🟩🟩⬛🟩 🟩🟩🟩⬛🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  16. I agree that there are no good candidates but Root is at the end of the line now surely? A world class batsman but a very average captain (very much like his predecessor Cook in that regard I would say). I think Stokes has enough on his plate already, especially given how much is asked to bowl as 4th seamer. I would go for a short term appointment in Broad and kick the can down the road a bit. Can't be any worse than it is at the moment.
  17. Moonveil vs Uchigatana - why not both? Hell, why not have Rivers of Blood and Hand of Melania up your sleeve too, just in case? I finished the game with the Moonveil +10 and Bloody Slash Uchigatana +25 as my main weapons. Nice to have the choice for different encounters or even dual wield if you're feeling particularly gung-ho. INT/DEX builds always work well with katanas in Souls games I find.
  18. Wordle 283 6/6* ⬛⬛🟩⬛⬛ ⬛🟨🟩⬛⬛ 🟨⬛🟩⬛🟨 🟩⬛🟩🟩🟩 🟩⬛🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 FFS. Twice in a row. Should be thankful my streak is still intact I guess.
  19. I think when you get the timing down to avoid his 'death from above' moves it gets a lot easier. Agree that the run back sucks though.
  20. Yeah, this rings a bell, and like gunrock I have a feeling this was a comic or non-computer games magazine.
  21. Yeah, the end of the game is a bit of a boss rush, and if you've rinsed everywhere else there isn't much to do other than keep trying. I finished the game late last night, just shy of 140 hours and every second of that a pleasure. I didn't feel the quality dropped at any point and my enthusiasm for playing certainly didn't. Even now I'm itching to get back to it - tidy up a few things, buy some upgrade stones and then plough on into NG+. It's fresh in the mind so difficult to place in the pantheon of games but it's right up there in my opinion, no doubt about that.
  22. Wordle 282 6/6* ⬛⬛🟨⬛⬛ ⬛🟩🟨⬛⬛ ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Pure luck - 50/50 guess for the final chance.
  23. Is anyone else having their dreams invaded by Elden Ring? I'm starting to see the target lock when I drift off to sleep.... I mean, it feels like all I have done over the last month is work and play this game so I guess it's no surpise really 🤣
  24. Lost 200k runes last night. The game throws so many at you late game that's it's no big deal really (although I have to admit that 200k does hurt just a little bit).
