  1. I loved it and definitely buying to watch again at home. I read the book when I was at school (long time ago) and have been re-reading post watching the film, since my memories of it were vague. Pleasantly surprised at just how close the film is to the book, with the changes there are feeling understandable choices. Roll on part 2.
  2. Sadly not as there wasn’t a pad nearby I restarted and still having fun
  3. Have been on a great run through biomes 1-3, collected some great artefacts and high integrity. Just went through a warp gate and, having picked up all the items, turned to go back and the gate won’t reopen so I can’t get back! This happened to anyone else?
  4. Sound design in this is fantastic. I was playing earlier on and really appreciating how you can tell what types of items are around you and where just by the sound; not to mention the rest of the ambient sound. Currently trying to find the cyphers I don’t quite have yet and experimenting with guns I didn’t use in my main play throughs. Such a great game.
  5. Beat biome 6 the other week - first boss attempt I died with the boss on its last sliver of health, but got my revenge the next time I got back there. It’s funny how the game goes from feeling brutal (biome 1 and biome 3 for me) to being able to go around mopping everything up in those areas. It may have something to do with unlocking other weapons though… Still loving this and continuing to explore.
  6. And boss 4 is down. Went in fully loaded with full health, astronaut, health pack and a damage syphon, but didn’t need any of them. Felt like I was cheating with a carbine with leech rounds and rising pitch. Got my arse handed to me in the next biome though!
  7. Loving this. Found it punishing to begin with and thought I would never get out of the first biome, then have struggled with the third - almost beat the boss on my first visit and then took quite a while to even get back there for second go. finally now made the 4th. Got to the boss for the first time with almost no health and got within a whisker of beating it but died late on having already used my astronaut and reconstructor before even getting there. best thing I’ve played in ages and most feels like when I first played bloodborne.
  8. I grew up in Leeds and used to go to two game shops every week with my dad in the 80s. One I think was called Heromans Dell and they had a sister shop in Crossgates that for the life of me I can’t remember the name of but was the one we used to go to the most. So many good memories of hanging out, chatting about games and playing whatever just came in.
  9. Not gaming related and very early days with mine. It started by me jumping well and truly outside my comfort zone by making a lockdown music video and posting to youtube at the start of the first lockdown (I’d not even sung in front of anyone let alone make a video) Subsequently, I’ve made a few short videos focussed around mental health and the workplace. I mainly share these with my LinkedIn network and at work to help normalise conversations around mental health but am thinking about where to take things next. https://youtube.com/channel/UCmG-AV7-uJBJX0r6Sve_fnA
  10. Yeah, I’ve cocked up many a run through with poor jumping! By the late stages of my last run I was ultra cautious with the final jumps I’ve definitely enjoyed having more solo challenges to try, but can’t see me doing Pit or Prophecy solo any time soon
  11. Totally agree - Presage has been one of my favourite things in Destiny lately and something I'm regularly dipping into. Haven't completed master yet, but did manage to solo without dying yesterday. Lots of hairy moments and especially at the boss several very (very) close escapes raising the tension. Still got scannable to complete but hopefully we get more like this in the future.
  12. I didn’t get the ship either. Also on 17/19 - has the potential to be my first title depending on what the final two end up being. I’m also close to Dredgen with just 2 guardians with supers active to kill but that’s painstaking... Since coming back I’ve been playing as a hunter have just gone back to my warlock character. Despite having played the entirety of D1 as a warlock and most of D2 I now really can’t get used to the floaty jump having now got so used to my hunter’s triple jump! Just started a titan character last night as well so will see how I get on with that.
  13. I’ve been away from gaming for a while, but the new season of Destiny has drawn me back so am definitely interested in raid attempts or other group activity on PS4. Only ever done one raid across both D1 and D2 but it was a brilliant experience.
  14. I’ve not done any of the raids and would be keen to give it a go or to fill in given it looks like a full team
  15. After finding all the memories, completing 99 shrines, discovering 202 koroks and finishing the Champions Ballad I finally faced up to my responsibilities and tackled Calamity Ganon. I can't believe the game didn't click with me first time around because it's utterly amazing! It's been pretty much all I have been playing and I still want to keep exploring. After about 150 hours I also finally stumbled upon my first bear sighting. Despite finishing the game I'm still wandering and exploring and don't see that finishing any time soon. I still also need to have a proper go at the Trial of the Sword and may even venture into Master Mode. Just a fantastic experience all round.
  16. I’m still loving exploring and it’s amazing how much there is to see and do and new things discovered in areas I thought I had explored. lately I have stumbled upon a colosseum and had an epic battle with a silver Lynel. Reminded me of many of by boss fights in Dark Souls / Bloodborne where I would get the boss right down on health then get sloppy I’m the rush to finish it off and almost lose. Link finished off all his food in that one to stay in the fight and just made it. Then decided to wander along the coast. Saw my first rainbow as I was walking round the headland and then stumbled into Lurelin village which was a fantastic surprise and somewhere Link spent a fair bit of time exploring and paddling in the sea. while there I liked the little touch of link grabbing his foot in pain when kicking open a chest in bare feet. I felt a bit mean making him do that three times with the chests I found in the sea. Having found the Korok mask it’s been fun figuring out some of the seeds. I like the way that you know you’re not getting any new equipment so already have what you need to figure out the seeds and the shrines. i’m still not in any hurry to face Ganon.
  17. I’m back exploring after some time playing Mario. Now going to try wandering and not fast travelling to see what I can see. Currently in Hebra and have found a shrine that I can’t yet work out how to get to and something that might be linked to it or a seed - think I know what to do but not how to do it. good to be back again but Ganon can still wait a while longer ...
  18. Just learning the ropes but up for some games. SW-1136-7965-0311
  19. My Switch was pretty neglected when I couldn’t really get into Zelda. However since trying it again and getting hooked I’m on it constantly. currently mainly Zelda and Mario but I also have Mario Kart and Graceful Explosion Machine and yesterday just picked up Splatoon 2 and had a few games. I commute into London everyday and have typically used the time watching Tv on Netflix/Amazon but now it’s the switch all the way. It’s great being able to play these games on the move.
  20. Yeah, it's showing the path, but starts from the first time I ventured into Hyrule Castle for a snoop around, which was quite a way into my game. Still interesting to watch from that point on, though I was teleporting all over the place around that time.
  21. I got the expansion pass over the weekend. I was disappointed that the heroes path doesn’t seem to have tracked from the start, despite having only played around 80 hours. Not sure if I’m missing something but has this happened for anyone else?
  22. I got a bit cocky and went head on with a white Lynel. Didn’t end well
  23. I got caught in a lightning storm while exploring this afternoon so quickly unequipped all my metal gear. At that moment one of the Yiga Clan swordsmen appeared in front of me. Bugger I thought, how am I going to deal with this? Just then a big bolt of lightning struck and killed him right in front of me!
  24. I headed back to be reunited with the Lynel by Zora's Domain. Very different encounter to the first time. I had enough hearts to withstand a hit and beat him with a combination of stasis and arrows and some sneaky hits while he was down. My timing / aim was a bit off but got there in the end.
