  1. It's a longer fight than the other bosses because it's difficult to damage. Traps aren't as useful as in other places, but you can still wolf trap him and the barnacle in particular is useful for steady damage. Good bows are obviously useful. Where you're actually likely to take most damage though is in the phase with the tentacles. A wolf trap can be good again here, and frost blast also helps. Being patient and learning to dodge his attacks is probably the best advice really. Accept it'll take a while and look out for the advanced warning on his main ram and AOE attacks.

    Guacamelee! 2 - release August 21, 2018

    I've done the first half hour or so. Looks really nice and the music is as good as ever. In gameplay terms it seems very much more of the same. And the humour is a mixed bag - a few good gags already, but a number of eye-rollers as well. Basically a textbook sequel, which is fine by me. Looking forward to getting further in later.

    Gaming things you regret buying...

    A Gamecube and an XBox instead of a PS2. Not that the GB and XB didn't have some good stuff on them, but clearly they were the backup consoles that generation, not the main event. The original GBA. I mean, it just didn't fucking work did it? Unless I was sitting on the toilet where the light was directly overhead. Fortunately, the GBA SP was great.

    Gaming things you regret selling...

    I sold a ton of games about 10 years ago - SNES, MD, PS1, N64. It's not that I wish I still had them, just that the value has shot up since then and I could've got a shit ton more for them if I'd waited a while longer. One game I wish I'd held onto is Tactics Ogre on the GBA. I still have the GBA SP and a few games, and that's one I could've easily played a few more times over the years.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Finally finished this. Was glad to have it done by the end. It's all very impressive in a number of ways but I never really found it that interesting to play. I enjoyed the exploration aspect most of all and the locations and lore are nicely realised. But the puzzles were rarely engaging, the upgrade system largely pointless and even the combat didn't flow as well as I would have liked (I struggled with the lock-on system in particular). I can appreciate the huge amount of work that went into this to make it function so smoothly and seamlessly, and the sheer quantity of stuff that's in it. Aside from the spectacle though, the design is a little too streamlined and conservative for its own good. At least for my tastes, anyway.
  7. I got to the last boss a few times but couldn't do it and I've had enough now. It would have been nice to finish it, but going through the levels gets tedious after a while. It's also a shame that so many weapons are unavailable at the start - by the time I got to some of the better ones it was already wearing thin. Really enjoyed it for about a week though.
  8. The Valmont Whip has a great feel to it. Small damage up close, but catch the enemy with the tip and get a big critical. Very satisfying every time you judge the distance just right.

    Death's Gambit. Everything was Souls.

    Dead Cells was more of a known quantity thanks to the early access version. Could really do with some reviews with this and they haven't arrived before release. Now that the pre-order discount has gone, and with Guac 2 coming next week, it can wait.
  10. Don't think I've died against the Time Keeper, I suppose because if I get that far it means I've got a good build going. I've reached the 3rd boss once and got completely destroyed. It's difficult to come back from that because of how long it takes me to get that far. I guess I really need to speed things up in the early stages.
  11. I felt the same first time I got there. You'll find once you get some good weapon combinations going you can knock it down pretty quickly.

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    Hmm. That cover style around issues 230-285 wasn't good at all. Really like the ones since then though.

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    The ones where they don't list the issue's contents tend to be the best. Resi 2, Tekken 2 (or was it 3?) a few months later, Republic and MGS 2 are probably the highlights of the first 100. Anyway, thanks for the link. I'll have a browse through the rest.

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    I was also on the Edge forum around 2002/2003 which eventually (and rather suddenly) closed down. I didn't drift here because I didn't know there was a here for a while, and then I joined the next Edge forum when that started, before drifting off with all the folks on there to another forum when that closed. And then recently decided to get involved here as well. It's not a very interesting story, I'll admit. Anyway, I bought Edge from around issue 30 and then every month until about 6 years ago when I stopped living in the UK. It was for a long time far an away the best source of informed opinion on games and it's great to see it still going.
