  1. The HDR patch makes a big difference. Just killed the lights in my living room and played a full day and night cycle. Looks amazing. Proper bright sky and detailed shadows, all extremely natural-looking. Good analyses @EvilBoris

    You have to not get greedy with DoH. Do one slash fewer than you think and you’re less likely to get caught by the sweep. Also I tended to always be running round behind him and to the left and half the time I was outside of its arc anyway. Stay under his feet as much as possible and be ready to deflect his stomps and headbutts.

    As long as you jump it’ll never hit you, right? I spent several sessions trying to beat hit him and it was the flame/flame/stomp/flame combo that I found the hardest to counter.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    Watched ep1 and it was amazing. I do wonder in these productions that show Soviet life how trumped up the bureaucracy and sheer drudgery is. It felt like it was bordering on satirical, like Yes, Minister or Jarhead or something, how foolish everyone was acting, but delivered in a serious tone. I've no doubt of the systemic failures that lead to things like this happening (as they do everywhere) but would the moment-to-moment behaviour have been quite so brazenly idiotic? That said I watched it straight after The Virtues and the life of a working class guy in modern-day Liverpool didn't look any better.

    You're putting me off again now. Or was it just curry-consistency vom?

    Cool, sign me up for some misery!

    Oh hang on I thought this would be full of grimly realistic body horror from people exposed to radiation? That’s the only thing putting me off - I’m a wuss with that kind of thing. Tension and existential dread I’m fine with.

  9. Is there a phenomenon where things that you think must be fake look fake, even though they're real?

    Human Fall Flat

    Whenever I play it with my son it descends into a wrestling match as we try to throw each other off the edge of the map.

    Okay, I think I can do Demon of Hatred. I only got to the third phase once last night, but the important thing is I can see how to handle every attack in phases one and two. The main one that was giving me bother was the fire swing and stomp combo he does if you're close but not right under his feet or behind him. I was blocking it but because it involves the fire leash it still does plenty of damage. I looked up a YouTube guide that gave me a tactic for that (dodge through fire, block/deflect stomps). Plus, the fire umbrella is great to have in a pinch and should last the whole fight if used only when necessary.
  12. Sounds like it’s changed a lot since I last played it.

    I did try grappling as soon as I saw it but it never seemed to work. Umbrella is a good shout, I don’t know why I didn’t think of that as I’d been using it at the start. I guess it’s natural to try each boss without resorting to using spirit emblems in case you need them in the last phase.

    Cheers. For the first time since the start of the game I’m not sure I have the willpower to continue. Three health bars is just demoralising. And four stages for Sword Saint. That said I went from feeling defeated at the very sight of Demon of Hatred to getting the hang of his first phase pretty quickly so maybe it won’t be too bad. Might look up some YouTube guides.
