I beat Celeste without ever using Assist mode. Feels great.

FTL (Faster Than Light) on Steam is great.

I've only beaten it once, and my ship actually exploded but since it was after the big boss, I got credit for the win.

I keep coming back to it, I wish it was available on mobile.

1) RNG in The Division is still a fickle bitch to me. Can't get the right Classified gear I need for my third agent.

2) Dark Souls -- got killed a couple times because I got annoyed and tried to rush a couple spots, no huge loss but it made me roll my eyes. I still didn't feel like challenging the Undead Burg Black Knight, and I wasn't in the mood for Havel either, so I picked the Taurus Demon to take on. I managed to first blow easily enough, but then he killed me (I then died again rushing to get back to the fight, ugh). Second time I tried some tactics, namely spawning the boss, climbing up and doing the plunge attack, rolling between his legs to force him to back up, climbing up again, and then he jumped up when I was drinking my Estus flask to regain health.

Apparently getting on the ladder to go down causes the boss to jump back down and I kept getting on/off to trick him into giving me a few moments to refill my HP, and then I repeat plunged him for a fairly easy win.

Past him I got to the dragon's bridge, and then below it to create the shortcut from Undead Burg, but I don't have a long bow at the moment to shoot off the dragon's tail for the Drake Sword. I might get one because that actually is a damn good weapon in early game for melee characters.

I pushed onward a bit and discovered Undead Parish, spotting the giant boar mini-boss and almost going up the other stairs before realizing there's another Black Knight there. Went back to the bonfire under the bridge and called it an evening. Tomorrow I'll try and clear out the boar, maybe I might feel bold enough to tackle one of the Black Knights, and I know I'll leave Havel alone for a while yet.

Daaamn, as much as I loved Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy on the original Xbox, it really didn't age well. The Switch port by THQ Nordic is atrocious. The only thing they changed was the screen resolution, but the controls, camera, voice-less cut scenes and quests are terrible.

That does suck, because THQN isn't a bad studio, and now they have this (admittedly minor) shame on their record.


edit --- killed the giant boar in Dark Souls (didn't get the helmet this time, guess it was because it technically died to fire damage from the environment rather than my sword, but the helmet wasn't great anyway). Got a bit farther into Undead Parish and fought some particular knight-style enemies (not the Black Knights yet, still hesitating on those bastards). Maybe tomorrow I'll clear out more of the Parish itself and activate the elevator to Firelink Shrine, but I'll probably call it a night there because I absolutely don't feel like dealing with that double gargoyle boss fight. That fight was bullshit the first time, I don't want to think ahead to the frustration I'm probably going to feel soon enough.

Just watched that and have to say, it does look like a very good game. Maybe one day it'll get a release on XBL/PSN/VC, but until then, gamers will just have to dream.

Had a wonderful (read: frustrating and inconclusive) time with my 360 just now.

1) Couldn't sign in to Xbox Live. Apparently my Microsoft account was not associated with my particular 360 profile, but I suspect I was entering the E-mail address wrong in one spot just because I probably typed in the wrong characters towards the end as a simple mistake. Redownloaded my own profile to my console (no, no duplicate, I just got that part right at last) so now my XBL account is still active and I have the console registered on Microsoft.com. I might have to sign in every time I load up now, but that's a small price to pay.

2) The fucking disc tray is stuck good this time. I'm going to have to spend time later watching videos because the support pages on the official Xbox site, even with pictures, just aren't getting the problem solved. That'll be a project for later, but I need to get it done at some point because god forbid I bought all those 360 games for nothing, fine waste of money that would be.

^I feel for you. You go to spend some time with a game and spend hours just trying to get it back and running. Hate that.

Well, at least my PS3 is still working, because I popped in Dark Souls, reinforced my Estus flask, and then went on to kill both the Undead Burg Black Knight and immediately moved to tackle Havel the Rock. Didn't have much trouble with either, but the BK did score a hit on me and Havel nearly as well, since they both knock down a load of my endurance bar to block each blow from them.

I think Havel was harder to beat because of that insane armor of his reducing my damage so much. But either way I now have Havel's ring (increase carry weight) and I also have a Black Knight's shield (not using it). I might explore a bit of the lower levels of Undead Burg this week, because I remember there's a merchant somewhere down there, and a shortcut in the sewers that leads back to Firelink Shrine. Still haven't fought the gargoyles on top of Undead Parish, or the Black Knight there, but they're not going anywhere and I hated the gargoyles double-teaming me the last time.

And then there's the Darkroot Basin/Forest, and that fucking butterfly fight I'll have to go through. What sucks is I'll have to go through the game a second time to get both endings, and New Game Plus steps up the difficulty a good bit, and I'm not sure I should just start a fresh character instead (I might have to do that, because I want to have a Darkmoon-aligned character, but keeping the covenant might be difficult because I'm fairly sure you have to kill Gwyndolin and betray the covenant to advance the story).


edit --- messed around with my third agent in The Division to see how well the build holds up in daily missions. Only did two on hard, then had to adjust a couple stats for the gear afterwards and pick a different main gun. I love the Bullfrog, but it just wasn't cutting it, so I switched to a Black Market AK-74 and it's much better overall, and my gear needed a couple extra Health on Kill traits to keep me from wasting either medkits or my support station. But hey, I get to finally use my AK!

While I was tempted to link to the torch-only challenge for JMM today, I just watched this recommended video of a Rust game session. I don't play the game, only watched maybe one video with my dad on his TV YouTube app/channel, not on my laptop until now.

However, this "solo player bankrupts clan" is just too good to share (and it isn't long, only 20m). I was impressed by just how clever and determined this guy was (granted, his enemies were apparently cocky morons).

Did anyone pick up a PSOne Classic? If the price drops even more I might have to just because.

The SNES Classic has gotten the most playtime out of that and the NES. The library on it is great and the games have aged quite well.

^I saw it at Best Buy when I got my NES classic, but didn't get it because I still have a working PS2 and several PS1 games and feel like I could easily beef up that library based on my tastes. Word is they overproduced them, so I wouldn't be surprised if you could get them cheaper some day.
