    Daredevil - TV Series

    Yeah, but the others were weak. S3 of Daredevil is probably the best it's ever been. Certainly the most consistent series and massively benefited from no hand/mystical ninja shit.

    I love a story with a happy ending.

    Doctor Who

    That’s got to be one of the worst episodes ever surely? It’s like someone thought, “big spiders!” and then couldn’t think of anything else at all. The Doctor solution to big spiders was ‘play music to lure them into a room and then lock the door on them so they can starve to death/eat each other and let mummy spider get shot’ . Terrible.

    Fortnite | Battle Royale - Season 5

    This is a bit of a random question, but what’s the language like on general voicechat? My son’s always played on the PS4, just using PlayStation chat with his friends. He wants to play it on the switch though, which’d be general everyone chat. I’m not so fussed about general swearing, more if there’s rampant homophobic/racist/sexist slurs or not?

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I found fighting them properly very frustrating. Getting a couple of nail upgrades, the quick strike charm and some extra health and then just running up to each and hitting it till it dies is surprisingly effective though. Cheap and lacking any sense of style, but it works.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I started off very so so about this game, then got a couple of skills and really enjoyed it. It was awesome, then it just sort of tailed off again. Bosses got more irritating, areas got further apart and the sense of progression and finding new areas seemed to tail off and get replaced by the tedium of trekking around looking for potential new areas only to discover it's the wrong sort of ability to get to that area. Must be some other area to go to, roam around try and find that one. Curse the fact that the icons on the map are vague and you never thought to make sure you left blue dots for where you need jumping upgrades or purple dots for barriers. Instead there's just places where the map shows a gap, so you know there's potential there - just not if it's potential you can currently achieve. The tram stations seem awkwardly placed, as do a lot of the benches. Getting from A to B quickly is hard, or maybe not hard. You don't tend to die wandering around, it's just dull. You've already killed the enemies a hundred times as you went through that same area multiple times before. Really needs more areas like Crystal Peaks, where getting to and from it becomes fun with the appropriate skill rather than just slow. I can see I'm at 62% complete now, I've zero interest in finding the remaining 38% (or more). I don't even go back to see the grub guy anymore as that's going back to dirtmouth, then down the tunnel, through the rooms all for some more geo? Why bother. Similarly all the upgrade people I've ignored recently. I can't even remember where the woman selling charms was. I remember if being a long way from anywhere useful and I don't know which icon she is on the map. Really would a map legend have been so hard to include? Or am I just missing it? Not sure I can be bothered fighting the final guy either. I've still no idea why I'm fighting him or who he is. I know some people love that manner or alluding to the story, rather than telling you it - but I don't know how you make any sense of it. Even using the spirit sword on things, just gives random phrases and precious little context. I think I shall watch the video someone posted earlier, then youtube the final boss fight and call it a day.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I’m starting to wonder if I’m actually the good guy in this. I killed someone in the deepnest and he seemed kinda sad. I’m not sure why I killed him, he was sort of there and seemed like he was meant to be killed. I don’t think I got anything from him though. Is there a good summary anywhere of what’s going on in the game. It reminds me very much of Bloodborne, in that the games great and has amazing atmosphere but until I read the paleblood hunt for that I really couldn’t work out what the story was.

    They’re not dream knights are they. I blame it being late.. WKs. Didnt realise I needed to kill the watchers. I thought they sounded like good guys. I shall do that then.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Am I going the right way to reach the end? I'm hoping I'm fairly late on.. I've got and absolutely no clue what I should be fighting next or where I should be going. I remember seeing some boss that spat globs out of his head, but not where I saw him and I think I skipped killing the DKs. Are they stuff I need to go back and kill? I've no idea. I've seen a lot of places, but I honestly couldn't tell you anything about what's going on. Not a clue. I'm in at the moment. Does that need clearing or have I detoured... I'm assuming this is something like the right area as I only recently got the ability to get here. Feels a bit like this might be a mini-area I can ignore though?

    I’ve got another pale ore, I think that means if I go hand in my essence I’ll have two and that should mean if I go see the collector and sell stuff I can then go to the smith and have a better nail. That’s a lot of trekking about to get a bit more damage though. I’m not sure I want it that badly. I feel a couple more quick shortcuts and a handful more stations would have been better..

    Into the Breach - #perfectforswitch

    Exactly! Never give up!! I got lucky and managed to fluke the next 2 maps thanks to allies or environmental hazards, then on the 3rd mission a pod appeared. In the pod... a laser! The war was back on! Finished up island 3, but with only 4 grid power. Decided to do island 4. Smashed the Vek and finished with full power. To the final fight. The bomb was 2 turns from arming, the grid down to one power. I still had hope, only 4 vek in play. 2 targeted buildings, one the bomb. Foolishly leaving themselves wide open to devastating lava shoves... and then the 4th Vek webbed my brute miles from anywhere useful. A building took a hit... it didn’t resist. The war was lost. Bloody webs, I swear they’re the most annoying enemy power.

    Into the Breach - #perfectforswitch

    Everytime I play this I seem to come up with a new facepalm moment. Saw an awesome new weapon on sale, so it was a bargain. Figured it'd be much better than what my tank currently had, so bought it and sold my standard cannon. Then noticed when I went to equip it that it has 'uses: 1 per battle' on it. So now I have a tank that can attack once a battle. That run was going really well too!!

    Cashed in all my treasures last night and bought everything I could find.. hoping that doesn’t come back and bite me in the ass. I’ve justified buying the charms as it’s let me unlock another charm slot and they must be good. Also got a 2nd nail upgrade which must be worthwhile. Also smashed In crystal peaks. I died repeatedly, but then aced it. Is there anything more satisfying than finally turning the tables and obliterating a boss?

    I killed soul tyrant, so he can’t be too hard. Keep calm seems to be the main lesson I’m learning from bosses. Stay calm, focus on evasion and get in some hits when it’s safe. Speaking of which I’ve now got the double jump. Now to explore some more!
  15. Wait is this a bonus costume?? If so skip waiting, I’m in!
