    Killed the Witches first time. Knowing the gimmick obviously pretty much trivialises the fight but another area done! Vicar next

    That'll definitely happen, although hopefully I'll be able to take out the Witches solo. They will fear my new Ludwig's Holy Bae (got all the way through the new area really no bother, looted the badge, immediately fell off tower to doom).

    No, got him! Thanks for dealing all the damage and then facetanking. I screamed and jabbed at him with the extended axe to shave off the last sliver! I'm shaking again though! That second phase is brutal.

    Cool. Just at the scourge beasts, password is rllmuk.

    Yeah I'll head there now. Give me between three minutes and an hour. How do I set a password? First time doing co-op.

    @DC ooh yes please! I'll farm some stuff because he ganked me again I'm free pretty much whenever so just give me a yell.

    I got Blood Starved Beast down to about 1/10 health at the second try but unfortunately I'm now totally out of Pungent Blood Cocktails (and molotovs, antidotes...pretty much everything) so will need to farm a bit. I used 6 of the buggers but only managed one crit/visceral - when he's in an attack animation he moves really unpredictably at the target. He's not too bad to dodge mind, 90% of the time if you go diagonally behind him he'll miss. Think I managed to get one parry but then got a bit greedy, it's the poison that's fucking me more than anything mind. Thinking about using the bell if I don't get him next time. The PS4 has been off for half an hour and I'm already getting itchy though. Curse this game.

    Bloodborne

    Wow, this really is starting to click a little bit. The aggressive mindset really does help; previously I'd sit looking at massive enemies for ages and take tentative swipes at them and get bashed to pieces whereas now I'm running at them and making a nuisance around their legs. Timing rolls and dodges is super satisfying to pull off, I also don't think I really got the weapon aiming system before and now I've figured out the roll/dodge, R2 charge+aim at their bum, dodge incoming attack etc rotation...In a weird way it's sorta like an action/turn based RPG hybrid, if you fuck up you have to accept that you have to use your next "go" to heal or reposition or whatever. Cathedral Ward to Old Yarnham whilst just having a wee explore which I was pretty happy with. Moderately lost now but have managed to get my Hunter's Axe to +4 (I think) although I'm still a bit at sea with regards to upgrades. Do I want to be going for Ludwig's Holy Blade now I'm in the CW? I'll never raise 20000 Blood Echoes, I'm far too much of a chicken!

    First time. No big.

    Got him! Only started to use blood vials when I was consistently getting him below half health. Glad I killed him, I nearly chickened out and called for help! Gazza next. My parrying is miles better than last time I played so I'm sure he'll be an absolute walk in the park...

    Bloodborne

    So I downloaded this when it was on PS Plus about eighteen months ago, one shot Cleric Beast (remember this information), and then hit a complete wall with Gascoigne. I've never been a great player and even though it frustrated the hell out of me I didn't delete the game as I could tell it's something really special. Since then it's been sitting on my standard PS4 hard drive taking up space whilst other games come and go, taunting me, mocking me, The Game That Shall Not Be Spake Of. Even though I'm rubbish at it, obviously it's atmospheric as hell and it really fascinated me. During the interim I've been reading loads of lore and info and things about it, so despite being trapped at the start I know nearly all the story, the bosses, enemy weaknesses, builds, I know the correct way to stagger Gehrman, how to find Micolash again...and the other day, after finishing the Witcher 3 DLC on Death March and finding it really fun, I knew it was time to awaken anew and cleanse Yarnham of the foulness. My new Neo-like knowledge would grant me powers I was unaware of in my previous incarnation. It's currently Cleric Beast 7, Me 0. Fuck this game. I hate it. I love it. I'll show it though, I'm a single 31 year old male with a week off an a large bag of performance non-enhancing drugs. (N.B. The reason I'm actually struggling against CB this time, somewhat annoyingly, is the arena/camera - I'm actually finding his attacks really easy to deal with when I can see the damn things coming but he keeps trapping me in a bloody corner and then mangling to death whilst feathers blur up the screen. I'll have him though).

    Concussion protocols are working out well then.

    "That's just two players going hard at it". Erm, I think Farrell gets a rough time of it but at full speed that looked late, leading with a shoulder, and eyes off the ball. Anyone else? Obviously I missed the first half because I was working. So glad I managed to catch us getting a fucking kicking though.

    Didn't it come back off an Ireland player? So offside against green. I'm only listening to the commentary so forgive me if I'm talking shit

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Just managed my last divine beast (camel). Fuck me, I don't understand how a game so perfect could make such a massive misstep. Horribly designed zone, dungeon, and boss. I'm glad that's over with so I can never set foot in the Gerudo desert again.

    Only seven nil so far but Ireland are looking very ominous.

    Er, I guess confusion and psychic or dazzling gleam? Anything super effective against fighting will do you but tbh if someone wants to take a gym they'll take a gym. Defence is pretty much a joke at this point.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2, the HD remaster (now on PS4)

    Blimey. A quick Google suggests the Vita HD version is currently going for around eight quid. Great game but not a chance.

    Crypt of the NecroDancer

    This is out on Switch now and is perfect for it - I think it may have just ended but it WAS on sale (sorry) and I got it for £3 or so. I saw my friend playing it a couple of weeks ago and picked it up on Monday, it's brilliant! I'm fairly rubbish at games in general but it's really satisfying learning the attack patterns. It reminds me of Dark Souls in that every time you die it's unquestionably YOUR fault, but in a fun way - going back and beating the next Red Dragon or swarm of enemies with a series of perfectly timed dodges after getting pasted five runs in a row is beautiful. I woke up this morning ten minutes before the alarm and managed to beat zone two which had been stumping me for a couple of days, real game progress and a massive grin on my face in the time it would have taken to get Red Dead Redemption to the loading screen. Also the merchant is the best gaming character ever created.

    Arsenal

    Genuine question because I really don't follow the ins and outs but...why do we want City to win the league instead of Liverpool?

    Rugby thread (6 Nations, Heineken Cup etc)

    I always love the Wales game but this year it's got that extra buzz to it. Lots of good handlers and a cracking backline against 4 England backs who are all excellent footballers and will be able to exploit any space behind and a whole team looking hungrier than they have in ages. I think if England score a quick early try then it'll be much the same as the last two games but if Wales can stifle us for the first 10 or so I think they'll win it. No disrespect to Scotland or Italy but a potential GS decider in the Millennium Stadium on week three should be some match. Hope the roof is closed.

    Ashton is probably breathing a bit of a sigh of relief there. Don't think he would have had control over that but being tackled off the ball made it irrelevant.

    Say this about France, they're sticking to their defensive game plan

    They've also bloody well switched Growlithe for Poocheeyna during the event. Grr
