  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/48963783 I love how they spout this bullshit out every year. Slower gameplay, less emphasis on counter attack, timing tackles key... The same shit every year, which has some truth to it until they patch it one week in to make it just like the last one.

    Hitman is leaving soon. Damn, going to have to put Portia and spire on hold to get some hitman action.

    Has anyone else had significant crash issues on Portia on PC? I've lost almost a whole day of progress twice now. I'm enjoying the game more than I did the pre-release demo but the crashes really grind, especially because there are no save points during a day.
  5. Sort of. Zero card is my terminology for when you play out your hand so that there are no cards left. The correct relic will draw from your pile when you have no cards in your hand. This is where certain cards become much more effective such as clash which is only playable if you only have attacks in your hand. Other good cards include anger and any other card which discards cards from the hand when played. If you have no other cards in your hand, then the drawbacks of these cards are negated. The 0 energy strength card is also really effective here. The key point is that you can cycle through your hand repeatedly. So relics that do something for every 3 cards played are also really effective with this strategy.
  6. No patch for me yet. I've made it to A6 with ironclad today. Just had a very nice zero card build with the "if your hand is empty, draw a card" relic. I thought I had messed it up late on by bringing in a corruption but it worked out fine in the end. I beat altered form dog boss in one turn, with plenty of health and energy to spare. I played about 14 angers and strikes in a row, with 10+ strength and vulnerable meant I was doing 24 damage a card.

    I find it astonishing that despite really looking forward to metro exodus, I haven't even started it. Partly because I've watched some of it and it hardly inspired me but also because of the depth of quality games on game pass. I was think yesterday about slay the spire and how it is all I have played for a month. Some would argue that this is a waste of game pass because I could have just bought slay the spire directly. However, the real value in game pass is the unspent cost on games that just don't work for me. With game pass, if I don't like a game, I'll sack it off after a couple of goes and move on. Without game pass, that game would have cost me money and I would have felt an obligation to get my money's worth. I played guacamelee 2 to about 80% completion over a couple of days and just naturally moved on. I feel no obligation to finish it. If the mood takes me, I'll go back to it but if not, I'm ok with that too.
  8. I think, when you are new to the game, picking up every card is the correct thing to do. It allows you to experiment with combos and understand the strengths and weaknesses of each card. I've been grinding a lot of ironclad. I've tried to get a strike build working but haven't yet taken one all the way as strike cards dry up later on. I'm kind of wondering why perfected strike is even a card. I guess having one in your deck early game is really strong but it falls off hard late game. I've also been converted to the "do 2 damage 4 times" card. The interesting thing is that it is actually more impacted by high strength than heavy blade is (heavy blade is X3 and that is x4) and only costs 1 energy. Obviously it has drawbacks such as exhaust and vulnerability to caltrops but at 10 strength, a single energy card is doing 48 damage which is unmatched by any other card in the game I believe. And it is much better early game than heavy blade due to the low energy cost, giving it more flexibility.

    Does it support simultaneous pad and m+k?

    A new dilemma for the ultimate subscriber, is what platform for the multi platform games. Portia, I've already played the demo of on pc but the game seems more suited to a pad apart from navigating menus. Does anyone know if the Xbox/PC version supports simultaneous pad and m+k?

    I guess we'll see if my time at portia is going to abate my slay the spire addiction for a while.
  12. This game is insane, with the amount of viable options. I just did the daily and somehow managed to get a build where I had 19 starting strength (thanks to the 1 strength for every curse relic) and then 9 innate 0 cost 11 attack cards. Plus a few other card slots meant at least. 30*9 = 270 first turn damage as a minimum without any modifiers. I took out sleepyhead guy with a card to spare of my first turn.
  13. So because they are making loads of money from unrelated online sales, they aren't killing the free games on psplus, which do not directly contribute to those online revenues? You'll have to explain that logic to me more fully.
  14. It's a bit like a long distance bike race. Sony sped ahead and had the lead for a long time. Then they slowly got caught by the pack and instead of kicking hard to stay in the pack, they just kind of eased off. They'll finish the race, but really, they have no interest in winning it.
  15. I'm quite intrigued as to why Sony are killing psplus quite so hard. If they had a viable other option like game pass then I could understand it. Psplus now seems to be a 'minimum effort possible' thing, that they'd probably prefer to ditch entirely if they could get away with it. Maybe Sony believe that the subscription model for game services is a dead end?
