    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.

    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!
  9. Wait is this a bonus costume?? If so skip waiting, I’m in!

    I found a secret path! There’s a whole new massive area I can explore and really big flying bugs! Some little bug shot me in the face with triple fireballs though and killed me miles from the bench and I had 1180 geo. I was already mentally spending that. There’s keys I need to buy. If I die before I get back to it I’m going to rage. RAGE.

    I seem to be a bit stuck on where to go next.. I suspect it’s one of those games where it’s tricky to say where I should be, but I think I need to be able to jump higher? I’ve got: But every route I try either has an insanely hard platforming section or the route is fractionally to high to reach. Also can I use the And is there a map guy in every zone? I seem to be missing some maps,

    Bad bits in otherwise good games

    The morse code puzzles in keep talking and nobody explodes have to be right up there. They’re essentially impossible. They may as well have scrapped the ‘code’ and just had you guess random words. Doop doop deep deep doop deep? Doop? Dodeep? DeeNodoopno wait erm. Bollocks.

    OMG! I thought I was doing well keeping tack of potential new avenues to explore, but I’ve just got the crystal heart and I haven’t planned for this. It’s amazing! Also found I had 1500 geo so I’ve carefully gathered another 300 and bought the lamp. Figured it’d let me find new and awesome thing and had even remembered a dark cave. A tricky one too, I was totally expecting a new area at the end.. got a worm. Stupid worms.

    I’ve bought a pro controller and suddenly the game has got loads better. Also even though I’m getting murdered by a boss at the moment the nearest bench is actually near! And I have a map. Life is good.
