    Yeah that was the spot!

    Prey (2017) - Update and Mooncrash DLC available now!

    Thanks for the tips. I left the two phantoms alone for a bit, found some more neuromods, invested in turret repair, then paid them another visit and took them out with a couple of the turrets in the lobby. Was satisfying. I did need to finish one of them off with a shotgun blast. Getting to grips with it now.

    Prey (2017) - Update and Mooncrash DLC available now!

    Just started playing this (the base game). I love the premise and the atmosphere (I've just started exploring the main lobby), but finding it extremely hard. It seems like a random game of chance dealing with these mimics, they just fly around all over the place. And those big bastard Phantoms are annoying, there's a section I've got too where there are two of them. The first one I encountered was taken down with a turret so I think I need to slow down and not charge around exploring.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I died a couple of times on the boar, due to silly mistakes of my own making. Otherwise not too bad. Hero strike and the healing power got me through it.

    Let's talk damage types... Am I right in thinking that any damage during melee (apart from Hero Strike) will use warrior damage so it's pointless actually using a sword that buffs assassin damage? There are two weapon slots obviously, so I'm thinking that having any weapon equipped that gives me the best assassin damage buff is key whilst sneaking, but that when my stealth goes to shit I should actually be using a sword that buffs warrior damage? Also, is there any reason why I shouldn't swap all my gear out for warrior damage buffing gear for conquests? Considering it's basically a melee battlefield at that point?

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    Playing this at the moment, and seriously loving it. I hyped myself up over the Division 2 and Sekiro, but ended up trying this when getting a new PC recently and have shelved all other games. Quite surprising really, I didn't think it would grab me so much. I love all the gameplay loops. It just plays so well. Combat is fun, but nuanced enough to elevate itself over previous AC games. I think Origins was similar, but I didn't play that. I've decided to go for an Assassin damage build, falling back to the sword when my sneaking plans go to shit I like the engraving system, so I can compliment my gear with some warrior damage even though that's not my main focus. I've just noticed that there seems to be an option to toggle between gear sets now. Is that new? I'm sure it's just appeared in the menu. There was a big update (4gb) a couple of days ago. Finding everything a challenge, but not too bad (on normal difficulty). I had some problems with a boar in a clearing (mid fight he sends a whole load of his pig buddies after you!) but managed it after a couple of tries despite it being a bit of a slog. After the first failure I invested in the ability that heals you, so that helped with the fight. Otherwise I'm not having too much trouble sneaking my way around the bases, and sweeping up stragglers with the hero strike ability.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I managed to get my PC working by clearing the CMOS battery. But holy hell, I suck at this game. It took me absolutely ages to get out of the very first tutorial area. I'm just not consistent with my parrying, so I clear a few enemies without trouble but then make a mistake and I'm dead. I just don't think I'm gonna be cut out for this game

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    So my PC has died I left it on overnight (downloading the game), and I've come down to find it turn off and it won't post now. Looks like the error code on the motherboard is reporting the memory is at fault. Lovely timing

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Gonna be getting stuck into this shortly. I'm scared I'm not sure what I was thinking really... I tried and failed to play Dark Souls 1 & 2... just way too hard for me. I got sucked into the Sekiro hype in the same way that I did for those games, but silently hoped this would be easier. It seems not. I'm excited by the fresh approach, but I'm really gonna suck at this. The dragonrot mechanic seems very harsh. Let's see how I get on

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I'm still not 100% sure if it's just resurrection that brings in the rot. I've seen at least two guides written by professional sites that suggest only resurrecting does it, but individuals on forums have noted that they didn't resurrect and the rot still kicked in. So I don't know what is correct. Can anyone clarify? What I do know... (spoiler regarding the rot)

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    It did unlock early!

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Same here, slightly disappointed the VPN trick isn't working for us but it means I'll at least get an earlier night than otherwise. There are rumours the unlock time is going to change from 16:00 UTC to 04:00 UTC so hopefully I can play in the morning.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    There's a guy on Twitch that has just finished a 'no hits' run of the whole Soulsborne series so far. Staggering. Apparently he had RSI and was doing all sorts of pad handling gymnastics just to get through it all. Amazing.

    Yeah, they usually issue keys the day before release which you can redeem and preload.

    We often have PC specific threads, due to people getting tired of PC performance and tweaking discussion in the main game threads.
