  1. Had my deck for about a month, and I'm absolutely loving it. Even through I've spent £600 to pretty much exclusively play Vampire Survivors on the couch - ah well, I'm sure I'll get to my backlog at some point. I'm guessing there's quite a few new owners in this thread who are new Steam users as well. I've got a massive pile of unclaimed keys from various humble bundles over the years, free to a good home. No guarantees that they work on the deck though.
  2. I paid last Thursday, got shipping tracking from the Netherlands on Monday, and got a Parcel Force tracking number this morning for delivery tomorrow.
  3. Enjoying this a lot more than standard wordle, it's definitely more of a challenge. I've been going with UNITY and AROSE as my starting pair - gets all the vowels and the 4 highest frequency consonants.
  4. Thanks, that makes me feel a bit happier about the whole thing. Especially if they release the whole 2022 batch at the same time, us 2022ers can have our own thread where we pretend that 2021 never happened.
  5. I got one in the 2022 batch, but I'm not really feeling it now and wondering if I should cancel. It feels like a lot of the fun of this will be the regular drip feed of games, not knowing what to expect, and spending a bit of time focusing on each one as it comes out. If it arrives with the full season I'm much more likely to just give them all a superficial go before moving on to the next thing.
  6. It doesn't show up for me on mobile firefox, but I can see it on desktop chrome, so if anyone can't see it try a different browser.
  7. It's worth sticking with it, as you do get used to the controls after a while. At the start I was the same (my first expedition ended with me crash landing directly into the nearest moon) but by the end I was pulling off some ridiculous manoeuvres.
  8. It's confirmed that cross save isn't supported, unfortunately. I guess I'm starting from scratch on a third platform then! https://www.supergiantgames.com/blog/hades-xbox-playstation-coming-soon/
  9. I was really looking forward to this, but have bounced off it pretty quick. Looks and sounds lovely, but it's just not any fun to actually play. My character got stuck on the scenery on the first screen of the seeding chapter, so I quit out and selected the chapter to start it again. Once I finished the chapter I found out that playing from the chapter selection screen doesn't unlock the next part, so I lost all my progress. I probably would have persevered to see if it got any better, but I have no appetite at all to go through that empty experience again, so I guess I'm done.
  10. Got my first win! Completely undeserved, though. I picked up a perk which gave my active wand a random always-cast spell - this felt like a real gamble at the time, I half expected to get a spell that would blow me up immediately, but ended up with a rapid fire meteor wand that just demolished everything in my way. I already had fire immunity and explosion resistance, so it was just a case of holding down fire and loosely pointing in the direction of where I wanted to go. I honestly couldn't tell you what any of the enemies on the last few stages do because they didn't get much of a chance to do anything apart from explode. This result was a bit of an abberation as I'm at the stage where a good run will get me to the snow level, and an excellent one to Hilsi base. I've only seen past that twice - once when I got invisiblity and stealthed my way almost all the way through the jungle, and this run. I don't have a good sense for what I should be doing - balancing exploring off to the sides rather than bee-lining for the exit? Also don't really know how to build a good wand yet. I've read some guides so I understand the concepts, but don't really know how to assemble all the parts to make something worthwhile. Might have to watch some streams to see how people who know what they are doing are approaching it. Really loving it though, I'm enjoying pretty much every run as I learn something new (usually about the different ways things combine to self-destructive effect!)
  11. After a long day of following the exciting adventures of my DHL delivery driver, Argos finally came through at 7! They did send me the wrong controller though - I ordered the white one (so that I'd have one of each colour) but they sent me another black one. Not the end of the world, I wouldn't have bothered returning it, but they sent a text message apologising for sending me a play and charge kit instead of a white controller, and telling me to keep the kit and they'll send a replacement controller. A bit weird that they know they sent the wrong item, but got the wrong item wrong. Still I'm not complaining - nice release day bonus!
  12. Nah, he'll have been looking at data about how everywhere is sold out for the last five weeks but didn't feel any sense of urgency, and is only now trying to get one for Christmas.
  13. I can see stuff like the lockpicking minigame from Oblivion being great with haptics... Maybe not a great example given the Bethesda situation but I reckon there'll be some great applications and expect it'll be standard practice after this gen.
  14. I imagine the car enthusiast forums would be full of pictures of people's garages as they figure out where they're going to park it.
