  1. Into the Breach

    The Swap Mech in the Flame Behemoths squad seems like it’s going to be brilliant for that kind of stuff. I only realised after playing for about 15 hours that when a robot pilot says it ‘needs power’ for its special, it means reactor power from the mech, not that it spends grid power. I’d been avoiding them all because the effects never sounded worth wasting grid power on.
  2. Monster Hunter: World

    Critical hit chance, basically.
  3. Monster Hunter: World

    I wasn't really finding this particularly special until I got to Anjanath. That was the point for me where it felt like the training wheels came off, kinda the 'real Monster Hunter starts here' moment. I think that's not far from where you've got to if you've hunted Barroth already - so I'd definitely stick with it for a little bit longer, and maybe give the multiplayer a shot. I've really been enjoying answering SOS beacons over the weekend to get all the early armour sets.
  4. Monster Hunter: World

    I read somewhere that mounting was based on a percentage chance of success, and that goes down with each successful mount. So even if you correctly attack from above you’re never guaranteed to mount and it gets less likely the more often the monster has been mounted.
  5. Monster Hunter: World

    You should be able to register at least one ‘hunt pukei pukei’ Investigation from the resource center. Then you can start the investigation from the quest board and you’ll be guaranteed to find a Pukei in the world, just like in a normal quest. Regarding the question marks in the weapon upgrade tree, as far as I understand it, that just means you haven’t killed the thing that the materials come from yet. They’ll gradually resolve themselves as you keep killing new stuff.
  6. Monster Hunter: World

    Are you charging it up by holding down the trigger, or by just spamming it/doing dodge-charges? Because if you're doing the first, I think you're doing it wrong. According to a video I watched yesterday, what you want to be doing is chaining sequences of three shots, since you gain a charge level with each shot (also your dragon piercer benefits from the charge you build up with normal shots, so you should try and use it after 2 normal shots or a dodge + charge shot). I've been trying it this afternoon, and I don't feel like I was doing damage any slower than with the long sword I'd been using until today.
  7. Monster Hunter: World

    Affinity is your chance to get a critical hit, not hit in general, as I understand it. I think negative affinity gives a chance of a kind of negative crit, where you hit for less damage.
  8. Monster Hunter: World

    You can see the number of armour spheres you have when you choose a piece of armour to upgrade in the workshop. I'm not sure if the number you have currently shows up anywhere else.
  9. Assassin's Creed Origins

    Unfortunately, yes, every Assassin’s Creed game includes shitty modern day sections. It’s a mystery to me why they still do this, since I’ve never seen anyone say that they enjoy these bits. At least here they seem to be relatively short.
  10. The Apprentice 2017

    This whole series has been worth it for Harrison's, apparently sincere, "Medieval? They didn't have cars back then, did they?"
  11. Star Trek Discovery - new TV show materialising 24 Sep 2017

    And it was only done to save a 3 hour drive back to the star base
  12. Formula One - 2017 Season

    Do they still have that much of an advantage*? * Except over Honda, obviously.
  13. I hit level 8 doing the last thing I needed to do before I could leave.
  14. I think it’s always like that. With the inventory open, I have probably less than a third of the screen left for viewing the game world.
  15. Steam

    Ooh, looks a bit like a modern take on Crusader: No Remorse.
