    I did not get into Disco Elysium AT ALL in the 3-4 hours I played it. Haven't touched it since. It was on console, not sure if that was part of the problem. Jedi Fallen Order's biggest difficulty problem is the stupid chaotic animal enemies that are unpredictable and have like zero windup to...

    Macs are kind of terrible with games cause of the lack of a graphics card. I have an expensive macbook pro from 2020 and it can't even run Dark Souls Remastered at more than literally 5 FPS at 1920x1080. I think about the only games I could get to run on it smoothly were Quake and Doom. It is...

    From what little I pay attention to, this is specifically a game freak problem. They got really lazy with just developing for handhelds and when they finally had to switch over (HA) to attempting to do something more modern feeling on the Switch with Arceus and whatever the newer ones are called...

    I don't think Pokemon games have been polished or anywhere close to Nintendo's standards for probably 20+ years. Some are still fun, but they're a wreck and they're always rushed out the door and they're as full of filler releases as the Call of Duty franchise. I definitely have noticed in...

    What game are you playing?

    I'm going to play the game regardless, but I am skeptical that this will work as the super early-game video describes. Like, maybe it resets the durability for whatever weapon you make to 100, but unless the weapons you make are like, the original durability of both the weapons you merged...

    What game are you playing?

    Yeah, sounds like you're definitely doing a more optimized playthrough than me. I innocently got my guys to like level 25 really early on cause I didn't read up ahead of time on the game's frankly whack leveling system and thought grinding levels was good, and thus the first bunch of bosses...

    Elden ring!

    The mimic is really, really bad at holding aggro and also staying alive if you equip it with a staff. Plus if you have more than one spell equipped it will just randomly cast every spell you have equipped with no apparent strategy. It might work if you ONLY had rock sling equipped but I dunno...

    Elden ring!

    Are you trying to fight Radagon/Elden Beast "legit" or just spam rock sling? I seriously cast nothing but rock sling with the gravity staff (after summoning a brass shield/moonveil mimic tear) for the entirety of both of those fights and beat them first try. Especially Elden Beast just melts, if...

    Sekiro's NG+ I think is kind of tuned as if you had skipped the optional bosses and gotten their damage/health upgrades, so it takes a few bosses before it starts feeling harder than NG. I've gotten through most of NG+ a couple times but the Headless are seriously horrible (I don't think I've...

    Been grinding in FF8 for all kinds of things. Like, killed cactuars for a long time to max out my GFs, played cards for a long time to get up a collection and then beat the garden CC group. I think I'm on "disc 3" now whatever that means, Edea has her mind back right now. Can't wait to get the...

    From what I'm hearing the remake is much slower-paced than the original. Maybe I should download the original PC version and this mod instead! Speaking of slow-paced, I've been going through FF8! I have a pathological need to drain 100 of every spell. There are a few things that are driving...

    What game are you playing?

    I finished it. I liked it overall, even though the final boss was INFURIATING. I beat all of the optional bosses and nothing even came close to being as hard as the last boss, which is funny, cause almost everything I read anywhere online talked about how the last boss was much easier than the...

    Elden ring!

    No summons (the earlier one is easily wrecked with the rotten stray) and very low margin for error. Usually if he hits you you'll get staggered and then wrecked by the follow-up attack, especially after you lower his health to the point where he starts spawning lightning all over the ground...

    Eh, I remember the day after that game came out and my one friend with a PSX was freaking out like "OMG IT'S JUST LIKE PLAYING A MOVIE" like it was the greatest thing ever made. The cutscenes were there for spectacle (and also cause the character models look like absolute garbage so you needed...

    Movies you've been watching...

    I forgot to mention, I watched that too in my Oscar leadup. My thought was it was kind of pointless. I mean, I guess if you look at it as a horror movie it functions on that level, but it doesn't say anything that wasn't already said better by earlier war films (including the first version of...

    Are the cutscenes in FF7 long? The ones in FF8 so far have been like 1 minute tops, and most are way shorter than that. Hooray for harsh storage limits on games back then, I guess.

    Elden ring!

    Crumbling Farum is a million times easier than Haligtree and even Mountaintop of the Giants IMO. The only really bad section is when there's scads of those skeleton guys cause they're super beefy and will poise right through your attacks if you try to hit them while they're attacking. Good time...

    What game are you playing?

    Yeah, the speed boost thing greatly increases difficulty on FFVIII for that reason, too. The enemies don't stop attacking when you're in menus so it's definitely not in your best interest to have it on 3x speed in any fight of any difficulty cause you're going to be taking a lot more damage. I...

    I'm pretty sure fishing in Yakuza 3 is the worst fishing minigame I've ever played in any game, ever. That's really saying something with competition like Nier and Stardew Valley and Persona 5. All the pain and boredom and constant failed casts and escaped fish of the worst of the worst...

    What game are you playing?

    3 is the worst. 4 has some terrible sections but is a big improvement. 5 is where the series really gets good IMO. Going through all of them is a good idea, just don't rush through the main plots too much. A huge part of these games' appeal and character development is through the goofy...
