    The youtube playlist seems to be quite comprehensive this time around: link
  2. @Super Stop and Shop I tried to mostly avoid spoilers at the beginning and found that the combination of not knowing what to do plus dying constantly was a bit much and realised that I had stopped playing altogether. So just started to look stuff up instead and the game opened up again. So from personal experience I would say wait until you have basically just stopped playing, or the idea of playing isn't very tempting - and then look something up. One thing I will say is that, as you might expect, I think if you discover the answer one of those questions the answers to
  3. It's been tweaked and balanced in small ways. For example, like Jimmy said, I think there is now a touch more invincibility when exiting/entering doors, and there are now slightly fewer mob spawns in the dwelling. There are probably a few more refinements like this, but it's very largely still the same game. It is very frustrating though, no doubt. I agree that it trades a little more unfairness for a richer and "bigger" experience - for better or worse I guess is down to personal preference. Enjoyed the discussion we had on the grey areas of unfairness in the thread after launch,
  4. Where is this "I hate Hades" thread? I can't find it...
  5. Oh also, for those that are doing the daily challenge on PS4 please add me. I'm "SlimmJD" on PSN. I need more friends on my daily challenge leaderboard
  6. I actually realised that, as long as the shopkeeper doesn't have a locked door and a key then you can just pick up the shotgun immediately after roping and then run off. Managed to get Speedlunky a day or two after typing that message using this. If the shop has bombs you come away with a shotgun and 12 bombs, and with a bit of luck that's enough to get you to Tiamat with the required gun, 2 rope and 1 bomb for the quick win. Yeah I think 99% of it is just about perseverance, though I think I might call just getting to CO my endgame and be happy about that . I think watch
  7. Got my first Hundun win this evening! Actually took the bow all the way as well, but didn't dare try and get the arrow as it was my first time in the Sunken City and I am a massive wuss. Video of the last 10 mins if anyone's interested, was quite a moment to run out of bombs!
  8. I never got Speedlunky on the first one, but started to have a pop at it last night after watching Dan Gheesling's recent 6-7 minute run. It actually feels kind of doable. I'm using the strategy to rob shopkeepers where you rope to stun and then just run.. but don't suppose anyone knows a reliable way to take the shotgun too? I reckon a shotgun (for Tiamat) and a green bomb box to quickly deal with anything that looks run ending would be enough to get me through it all. Was in Neo Babylon on about 7-8 mins last night but died trying to relieve a Bouncer of his shotgun.
  9. I have a feeling they won't do the at all. Although I liked them myself, and thought they were important in giving you perspective on what "human" means, I can see that it might just not help get the main story points across. Feeling mostly the same as the impressions in here. The casting is great and it's really fun to see it all come to life. But it's very rushed and expositiony at the same time. I can generally understand the divergence from the books, but the Magisterium bombing the Witches raised a bit of an eyebrow. Why spend time on
  10. My daily challenge death today 6k2O_IYvqi_Jtxru.mp4
  11. Anyone have any thoughts on what's the next natural thing to aim for after getting a "normal" win?
  12. I got a bit beaten down by tiny errors costing me good runs so often that I felt like I needed a break, but I've tried to go back to it in the last few days. I have a single Ironman win, but everything else apart from that feels suuuper difficult. I spent a while trying to do the Sparrow questline without success. And now realise that you don't have to go to the Temple to get the item that allows you to make it to the world after the final boss, so slowly plugging away at that too. They changed Olmec! Still feel like that might be the weakest part of the game, but at least you don'

    Not true, Alex Albon actually seems like a genuinely super nice guy. Wait

    Just to add to this. Leclerc on the subject of kneeling; "I believe that what matters are facts and behaviours in our daily life rather than formal gestures that could be seen as controversial in some countries." and I think Max tweeted/instagrammed/whatevered something similar. More controversially, when Leclerc was pressed on this again, he said: "I don't want to kneel because a lot of the protests that take place all over the world are often violent [...] I don't accept any form of violence. I also don't like politicians starting to use these protests for their own ends."

    It's only practice, but pretty cool to see Russell top of the times nevertheless!
