    I cant stop playing GTA 5, creating mayhem. I think I got an addiction problem with this game. I tried to get away from it by playing RDR2 but it didn't work for long :(. Am I sick ?

    Not at all, I often get obsessed with games and continue playing long after everyone else is gone. They've got the problem not me :)
    I genuinely believe I'd still be playing COD MW2 every weekend only for the hacking & lack of anyone to shoot at

    Currently playing resident evil 2, really enjoying it. I'll try pick up metro once it's out. Fantastic month for games

    Briefly attempted the Expert+ levels in Beat Saber. Nope.

    Briefly attempted the Expert+ levels in Beat Saber. Nope.

    Was inches away from selling my PS4 a few weeks ago because I never play it. Went to a friend's house and played Beat saber 2 weeks ago. Myself and another friend both bough PSVR the following week after playing beat saber for a few hours. Cost a fortune for the VR, moves and games. So far I'm getting my money's worth

    I cannot get the songs out of my head! All day at work I have that Angel voices going over and over :o

    I've been doing ok at the expert levels but those expert+ levels are just ridiculous!

    Currently playing through God of War (PS4) after starting it a few weeks ago. Really enjoying it so far, the relationship building between Kratos and Atreus is excellent. It's giving me memories of the attachment that grew between Joel and Ellie in TLoU, and Lee and Clementine in The Walking Dead Season 1.

    Also putting a good few hours into Apex Legends. Never thought I'd get into a Battle Royale game but there's something about this that has me wanting to play game after game.

    Currently playing Tomb Raider (the first one of the new lot). I was about 2/3 of the way through and restarted it, I find when I do this I end up getting an awful lot more out of the game, and I pay more attention to the story. As somebody pointed out somewhere on this forum, it is very much like torture porn after a while, poor Lara... :pac:

    Not playing half as much as I would want to (the joys of toddlers and a wife), but do plan to finish game fully and then probably move on to RDR2 (but that could be months from now the rate I'm getting play :o)




  • PS3 : God of War 2 Remastered
    Had played GoW 2005 before GoW 2018, so knew what to expect going in. I think it has aged quiet well, and am enjoying it.

    Vita : Persona 4 Golden
    Third time trying to start this, I'll definitely get through it this time. :pac:

    Picked up Tekken 7 in the last PSN sale and loving it so far. Hesitated on picking it up as some reviews less than flattering but the nostalgia idea of an updated Tekken having spent many hours of my youth playing the earlier versions won me over.

    Also, Xing on the PSVR is a gorgeous and very playable puzzle game, can highly recommend it.

    Started into Bloodborne last night. Currently getting my ass handed to me by a giant beast on a bridge in the first level.
    Game couldn't be more cryptic about what your meant to do and where your supposed to go, thought Dark Souls was bad.

    be aggressive, cleric beast is an easy enough boss, I say that thinking some of the later ones which can be cruel. Oil and molotov cocktails work a treat, get in close bash its legs and hop out or around.
    The boss after will probably make or break you, best of luck.

    You must have a keyword alert set up for Bloodborne :)

    Cheers I'll give him another few goes anyway. I'm out of Molotovs so might pick up more and try him again.

    I remember similar frustration with Iudex in DS3 but I got past him. I am finding Bloodborne a bit more confusing to get around in, all looks fairly similar when walking around. No clue where next lamp is, I'm presuming after boss

    Tried playing Shenmue after picking it up for a tenner in Smyths , jesus it's awful slow going around the little town asking everyone the same questions got old fast

    Beat Cleric Beast there :)

    Won't lie, I looked at Vatyvidya's video on how to beat him. Must have killed me 10 times over the weekend but beat him first go there.

    I applaud anyone that trudges through these games without consulting YouTube. I know some people might consider it spoiling the game but I'd rather get through the early parts of the game and get a feel for it than getting frustrated in the first hour and never play it again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,394 ✭✭✭✭ gimli2112


    my alert went off
    the next boss is considered a test. I'd say more people fail at him than any other. It's only because you're a bit under levelled at that point rather than it being too difficult. I solo'd him but did cheese him.
    The blood starved beast (2nd optional boss) gave my a harder time but in fairness I almost had it first go and then just co-opped it.
    Some bosses just don't suit certain play styles and you have to adapt, I lost my mind on some even after beating them and playing later with new characters

    I got stuck in the first part of yarnham and I looked at a video on youtube and thought I'd never make the first save point and never played it again!

    Right on queue :)

    I seen there is a bit of a cheese for second boss alright and I am not afraid to admit I'm not gonna be a hero and I fully intend on cheesing the crap out of it.

    @cienciano - That's what I want to avoid with this game. First boss in Dark Souls 3 clattered me more times than I'd like to admit so ended up dropping the game for ages. Looked at a guide to beat him and managed to get through him and enjoyed the game after that (at least as much as you can enjoy a Souls game :) )

    I understand all of the words independently, but am really struggling to understand what is being said here.. Obviously it's a type of game I don't play...

    Just started God of War. Time to see what all the fuss is about.

    Tried the "cheese" method on Father G there and still got hammered. Got him down to last phase but he's too aggressive then and slaughtered me. Might give him another go at the weekend....and might not. Walking around the same starting area starting to get tedious now though. Must have 5 hours put into it now and feel like I've zip all progress made.

    He claims another victim
    the way I got him was when he goes to his third phase bring him over to the stairs, you entice him up the steps, run past him and run around the railing at the end of the staircase, you can then fight him through the railing
    he is hard in the beginning

    I'll try that so. Can cheese him down to that phase no bother but he's crazy aggressive then. Didn't even get a chance to whip out the music box. I'll give him another few goes. Felt same way after Iudex in DS3 hammered me multiple times but in DS3 I felt like once he was done I was able to traverse the world and make progress. I've beat one boss already in Bloodborne and I'm still running around the same area for like 5 hours now. Does the game open up after beating FG boss?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,553 ✭✭✭ murphyebass


    Been playin a decent amount of Apex Legends. Good craic for the most part. Definitely my favorite BR game by a looooong way.

    Gonna give the The Division 2 a go tonight on its free beta.

    Never got the first one but always wanted to try it so this is ideal.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,110 ✭✭✭ ronano


    Finished metro exodus (great addition to the series) and Leon's story on resident evil 2 remake, giving it a bash as Claire and I'm still scared/uneasy


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,757 ✭✭✭ skerry


    Picked up Persona 5 again last night. Had put it down a few months back after playing about 20 hours or so. Really enjoying it now again.

    Only thing that I don't like is the gap between safe rooms once your in a dungeon which makes it tricky to pick up for a quick game before bed cos you generally get caught between safe rooms. Actually think that might be why I put it down, that and a huge backlog of other games and a Switch purchase :)

    Would you not just put the PS4 on standby mode? Or does that mess it up a bit?

    Hadn't thought of that. This game is screaming out for a Switch version, would be perfect for it, probably won't happen though.

    I'm on Uncharted 2 at the moment. Missed this first time around, loving it, great mixture of adventure, action & pure fun!
