    Level 3 looks so cool. Great art direction.
  2. These guys know how to make a trailer.

    Really? That's cool. Gonna give that a try tonight. Never occured to me to not press the buttons for the finisher.

    Got the Kill Nill trophy for a no death run on the first level. I can do most of the club without dying as well, but I'm having trouble with those two fuckers right before the boss. Need some practice against them. Also, unlock the final skill on the tree (Weapon Mastery) It's very useful.

    Watched a no damage run of the club earlier and was pretty impressed, but apparently someone has already done a no damage run of the entire game.

    I've always liked more challenging games, not because I'm some gamer god because that couldn't be further from the truth, but because they demand a certain focus. I tend to lose my attention with games that are a walk in the park. This really got its hooks in me. Definitely one of those 'one more go' type of games.

    I've beaten level 1 age 21 (ingame that is, in real life I'm 44). Gonna take a shot at the second boss tomorrow. Was really close earlier and I now seem to have the ducking and dodging down. The hardest part of the club for me is that bald asshole prior to the boss. I think the game definitely rewards more patient, defensive play, at least against harder enemies. The second level really teaches you how to play this. The L1 dodging and ducking (and jumping, but I find that one harder to do for some reason) is a great tool for wearing opponents down and creating openings. The parry is good too, but riskier. The R2 dodge should only be used to create distance imo. And unlock the environmental skill as quickly as possible. It's one of the best tools against multiple opponents. Great game this.

    This is me. I have GamePass PC and I hardly ever use it. Much prefer buying the games I really want on Steam. Same with Netflix, there is a shitload of stuff on there and I hardly ever watch something. Don't even know where to start. Whereas I took a Prime sub just to watch The Expanse. I don't buy that many games each year (though this year looks pretty crazy) but I tend to be really invested in the ones I do buy (save for the odd disappointment, like Deathloop). I like both games quite a bit, but they pretty different in terms of how they're structured. Sifu has no procedural generation for example, and you have multiple lives. It has some elements of permament progression, but it's not really a roguelite. What they have in common, in my opinion, is that they both are modern interpretations of classic arcade genres. Returnal as a bullet hell shooter and this as a beat 'em up.

    First boss question.

    They're not as good as say Astro or Returnal, but there's some fun stuff. I like how it's synched to a techno beat in a club at one point. Also, that running tackle is a powerful move. Definitely worth permanently unlocking.

    This is super fun. Almost reached the second boss on my first go. Love the combat, though I feel I need to get better at the ducking and weaving. It's a powerful tool, but not easy. You need to be fast in this game (just like in real martial arts I presume). Also took me too long to realize that you can permanently unlock special moves.

    Downloading as we speak. Gonna jump in and hopefully finish this before Forbidden West launches.

    9 from IGN, Gamespot and Destructoid and 4.5 out 5 from Gamesradar. Looking good so far.

    It's not a character action game though. It's not a game in which you style on opponents, but a game focused on defense and taking out enemies as efficiently as possible. I would be very surprised if it reviews badly, given how positive the previews were, but we'll see. I don't consider it a roguelike, as you have multiple lives and as far as I know there is no procedural generation.
  16. Watched the Easy Allies preview earlier. I'm definitely interested in it. New IP, cool art direction and a combat system that looks pretty interesting. I hope it all comes together.
  17. 1. Sword Saint Isshin The ultimate test of mastery. 2. Ludwig the Accursed An incredible challenge on NG++, which is where I first fought him. Great lore, incredible soundtrack and probably the best phase transition ever. 3. Orphan of Kos Just a relentless boss that was super cool to fight. Great design and lore. 4. Guardian Ape I love how it incorporates the grapple and it's a fun boss period, but it gets extra points for the fuck you moment and the astonishing animation work. 5. Dancer of the Boreal Valley Not the most demanding fight in that game, but I adore the movement, music and visual design. From does bosses extremely well and that goes way beyond just the mechanics of fights.
  18. Man, melee combat looks so much better now. Glad the cauldrons are back, one of my favourite parts of Zero Dawn. Exploring ruins looks pretty enticing as well. There also seems to be way more environmental variety. Really expecting an UC2 > UC style leap for this and Zero Dawn was already a much better game than the first Uncharted was. Also, as an aside, I never thought of Zero Dawn having two stories. What happened in the past basically dictates what happens in the present. Aloy discovers who she is by learning more about the past. Most of the stuff that isn't directly linked to the past is optional story content in sidequests.

    Short film:
  20. I'm normally not a big fan of small universe stuff in Star Wars - which it has a lot - but I really liked this episode.
  21. Well, it seems Tamoor is impressed. Better than Returnal would make it GotY material for me.
  22. I really enjoyed this. Bryce Dallas Howard would be a good director pick for a full-length Star Wars movie I think. Normally I'm not too big on nostalgia bait but this had so much good stuff and nice gags: Good stuff. It seems to be building to a pretty cool finale.
