  1. Had another long session tonight where I blew through a bunch of sidequests. I’m down to about 5 or 6 quests in each category and the quests are all level 26-35. I’ll go back to the main story for now but since I have weapons that require Geralt to be level 46, I’m curious how long the main story is as my current mission (Isle of Mists) only has a level requirement of 22. And also I’m down to searching for the last three Gwent cards (in the base game, I don’t have the expansions installed) - two in Velen, and one in Skellige.
  2. I really want this too, it’s gotten great reviews and sounds like something completely fresh. I just realized it’s by the guys who made Dropsy, my first impressions of Dropsy were good so I must go back and play that.

    The Division 2

    I wonder how significantly digital sales have increased? The original game was released in 2016 which you could certainly call well into the digital/download era.

    The Division 2

    Physical sales just 20% of the first game. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-03-18-the-division-2-physical-launch-sales-just-20-percent-of-division-1
  6. Official gameplay overview trailer, can’t be embedded. Looks immense.
  7. The story is popping off now. Currently level 25 and my Steam playtime is 134 hours but on the in-game clock it’s 10 hours less, which seems about right.

    Dark Souls

    Tomb of Giants is a cool location. I don’t remember anything about Bed of Chaos. Is that one of the bosses in Lost Izalith?

    Hollow Knight

    Beautiful collector’s edition now available for pre-order on Fangamer: https://www.fangamer.com/products/hollow-knight-switch-ps4-pc-collectors-edition-game I loved this game and want to support the developers so I bought the PC edition.
  12. 126 hours now, Geralt is level 23. Today I completed the string of quests that leads to the crowning of a new ruler in Skellige. One of the quests involved killing an ice giant, it’s a wonderful little odyssey all in itself. And after, NPCs all over Skellige make reference to it - one of lmy favourite lines is how you “slayed a giant but now you faff about chasing skirts.” I can’t praise enough the NPC dialogue in this game, not just the NPCs who respond to Geralt but also the countless conversations you overhear as you wander about. I also did the Bear School gear treasure hunt quest, which took me to the north-eastern island in Skellige. This island has its own beautiful music theme. And I defeated my first red skull enemy, an Ice Elemental. And I unlocked my first special attack (the spinning fast attack):
  13. Was just coming in here to ask about that. That’s annoying.

    Shenmue 3

    Nice trailer though. That musical theme at the end is gorgeous. I’ll definitely try to play through the first two in time for this.
  15. Seems like the developers agreed that the release window was a little crowded, so the game has been delayed until June 27th. https://gematsu.com/2019/03/the-sinking-city-delayed-to-june-27

    Devil May Cry 5

  17. I know you guys love my Gwent updates. I got 188 yesterday which beat my old high score of 184 and unlocked an achievement (for winning a round with a score higher than 187). So that was nice. Also, I think I have nearly collected all the cards in the game now. I have two cards left in Velen, five in Skellige and zero cards left to win from “players of no renown or title”.
  18. Yeah he’s basically saying if you look at the body and head, and the roundness of the stomach, that they could have balanced it a bit better lol...

    The Sinking City

    https://www.destructoid.com/i-m-totally-ready-to-explore-the-sinking-city-544854.phtml This game looks cool. The release date clashes badly with Sekiro though. From the developers of Sherlock: Crimes and Punishments.
  20. Download link is for part one!
  21. New gameplay trailer. I thought it was going to be similar to Danganronpa, just in a different setting but it looks completely different. Music in that trailer is fucking ace. Also there have been some changes made for the western release which are detailed here: https://gematsu.com/2019/02/zanki-zero-last-beginning-details-content-additions-and-changes-for-western-release
  22. Good podcast! Dangerman: “My tower sticks out because it’s quite long.”
  23. The Bard’s Tale IV is getting a Director’s Cut release in June. Also, Toejam & Earl: Back in the Groove has been getting some good reviews: Destructoid - 9.5 Nintendo Life - 7 Polygon - Recommended
  24. I have to gush about this game again and the level of detail. There’s a quest in Skellige where a guy asks to find out about his brother and wife, you find the bodies on a beach, and after the quest was completed I went back to that beach and the guy was there and he had lit candles next to their bodies. There’s a quest in Novigrad where drunken sailors are causing a ruckus inside a whorehouse. I used Axii to convince them to leave and rather than just disappear or walk out they actually drunkenly stumble out the door and continue drunkenly walking down the street. I absolutely love Skellige. I love the regional accents. The characters speak so profoundly and expressively - at times it’s like listening to Richard Burton reciting Under Milk Wood. Like the old men who say “you need to spend more time in the isles, strengthen your fortitude”, or words to that effect. There’s a small town (Ravainn or something) with a house built on a high rock in the sea, and there are bonfires on the rock that are lit up at night. When I walked up to the house a man said to me “a newcomer?” - just a normal NPC with no name but he had that beautiful expressive voice and those words at that moment just suited the scene and the game perfectly. The level of thought, artistry and good writing gone into this game is unbelievable. Another favourite is the little children who run around Geralt saying “you’re not that scary”.
