  1. Nice little party planner tool here spotted via Era: http://octopathplanner.com Covers subjobs and shows where your party’s attack/magic gaps are. I expect it’s gonna prove very useful once I’ve recruited everyone.
  2. Ah! That explains it. Missed that message. He didn’t jump in every time, how do you know when it’s going to happen? Also it really should at least move the relevant enemy sprite to show the block, just as your party members step forwards for their attacks.
  3. The Chapter 1 boss fight for Tressa was irritating and/or bugged:
  4. Just finished reading the brilliant ‘You Died: The Dark Souls Companion’ by Keza McDonald and Jason Killingsworth of Kotaku and Edge, respectively. Absolutely fantastic book, fascinating exploration of Lordran locations and lore, and stories about the game’s impact in the real world. It’s also full of beautiful illustrations of iconic Souls locations and hilarious doodles of modes of player death. An absolute treat of a read for any Souls fan. About £7 on Kindle, go get it.

    England playing some great stuff there. Unlucky Dier. More of that please.

    Er... Well, apart from the Diana Dors stuff nothing I posted is ridiculous. We don’t score from open play (at least, not in this tournament). Our midfield gets too often dominated in games. Our defence goes headless-chicken all too easy and too often. Not sure what there is to argue here. And I certainly never said we’re the best, or the worst (although we’re uncomfortably closer to the bottom than the top). We’re achingly mediocre for such a large footballing nation with so much money in the game. A perennially broken system that churns out middling, under-performing National squads, hamstrung with pedestrian coaching. Just like this one.

    I’ve been one of England’s biggest knockers since Diana Dors, but, to be fair, there’s only really one shortcoming with this team: The strikers are poor and can’t score from open play and the midfield is anonymous and easily out-muscled and out-thought and the defence invites pressure that it isn’t equipped to handle. Otherwise we’re pretty decent.

    I’m not feeling it from the log, and I like to be Whedon as much as anyone.

    That coveted ‘2nd Loser’ award looking in jeopardy after 3 minutes.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Finding it waaay harder than DS, which is, bar a few bits (O&S, the DLC) just an exercise in patience, with generous input windows. This requires proper twitch reactions on some bosses and can be fiddly in places, like those bouncy mushrooms you downslash to attack. It also has very poor signposting compared to DS, so can be a bit more frustrating.
  12. Sorceror build making good progress. Easy run through Catacombs, ToTG, Demon Ruins and into Izalith. 12 Soul Spears, each doing between 300 and 600 makes mincemeat of bosses - a bit OP tbh. Expect Seath might be a challenge though, as I’ve heard he has magic resistance and I have no plan B.

    Yep, I’ve gone back to Dark Souls for something casual, fun and frothy.

    So few reviews for this around, it would be good to get a forumite verdict when you’ve played more. Loved the books back in the day. Played them religiously on the family holidays - so much better than the FF books.
