  1. Finding it strange to hear people say the world is empty - my experience is completely the opposite Last night the amount of stuff I discovered was if anything a bit overwhelming.
  2. All planned for a gaming evening tomorrow but the Amazon order is saying delivered before 11pm. Surely it won't come that late in the day?
  3. For those who have watched the streams - can you confirm that it goes directly from the start menu to the character creation screen? I have a friend coming round on Friday where we will start the game for the first time together. I am sure they won't wanna watch me tinkering around on the character creation screen for hours, but don't wanna create my character if there is any content before it (like DS2 did) If this is considered spoilery put your response in spoiler tags
  4. I have the launch edition ordered from Amazon. I have seen nothing apart from the original game awards trailer. It's been a real struggle to avoid watching anything else but I reckon I can keep strong until Friday. This might be the most excited I have ever been.
  5. Ah thanks for the advice everyone. I'm not sure he knows that you don't get Vbucks any more. Might have a rethink
  6. A quick piece of advice if that's ok. My son is wanting Save the World for Christmas on PS5. What's the best way to get this? Just buy digital? Is there a physical version? He keeps mentioning some robot(?) pack at the moment which gives you access to Save the World, but don't know if that's permanent or anything. Any help is appreciated. The amount of hours we've spent playing fortnite I don't mind spending a bit on Save the World. It seems his primary goal for getting it is to get vbucks!
  7. How spoilery is it? Trying to resist watching it. Do they say if it's a starting area they are showing or anything like that? Is it snippets or full uninterrupted gameplay?
  8. Ah thanks. Is that forever or just that particular match? Will be a big help when the kids wanna play.
  9. Destruction Allstars seems like fun, but the decision to have voice chat on by default and no way to globally switch it off is completely bewildering.
  10. Just bought this and wanted to play it in 'mirror' mode as I've played the original to death. It looks as though you have to pay souls to unlock it? Is there an easy way to get to it without playing much of the base game?
  11. Finally beat the final boss. Ending was lovely. I was getting frustrated so I took some time to think about how I was going to beat it and take out some of the random aspects. In the end I planned it like this - 1) Deflect is a must for me, so I made sure the Athena boon was the first and got it on my dash. 2) I wanted to be able to 'select' some boons, so I levelled up the 'replace' trait to the maximum. 3) Picked the bow and first hammer upgrade made it autofire 4) My preferred boons tended to be defensive (chill, weak etc) so figured I needed to do more damage. First boon choice I swapped for doom damage on the arrows 5) Ignored cast and special and piled everything into damage output on the arrows - doom, critical etc 6) Final problem was how to avoid the beams of a certain final boss. Decided to get a god gauge skill to become invincible. Went for Ares blade and auto fill god gauge. 7) Was pretty much standing back and shooting everything with arrows. Didn't put anything into cast. Always chose the Pomegranate option 8) Only slight problem was third boss where I didn't have anything to just chuck into the middle. So I ran round the edge filling my god gauge. Took ages but was never in doubt. 9) Did final boss using arrow and blade rift. Had 2 death defiances left once done. So yeah I did it. What a game. Not sure I have the willpower to keep going but enjoyed everything about it. Hope it wins GOTY.
  12. Finally made it to stage 4! Ended up putting all my boons into the fists uppercut - something I wouldn't normally use. Was doing +700 damage with a single punch. I normally spread out the upgrades across the Y, X, Cast etc, but makes me wonder if it's viable to plough everything into one Mega-attack. Hades is a very good video game.
  13. Game have also just sent me a special 'next gen discount code. For current gen games.
  14. Game still haven't taken my payment. Don't know if this means anything but starting to get a little nervous.
  15. Yeah I did it as a guest. Just got the email so looks like it has gone through Maybe more stock is available today at is was only 10 mins or so of refreshing.
  16. It just appeared to work for me. Had the dual sense charging station bundle in my basket. Took about 10 mins of going back and retrying to pay before it went through. Have got an email from Paypal but not Game yet, so fingers crossed.
  17. I just watched it with the kids and it was fine. Very similar tone to the first season, can't think of anything specific that might upset them.
  18. So I now have an email from Klana confirming my direct debit, and a second one saying my application has been declined. What a mess.
  19. So I got so far on Smyths. Completed the Klana application and then the site crashed. Have an email saying the direct debit is set up
  20. Gah. Got through the Game queue but they are only taking orders from customers with existing Xbox All Access purchases.
  21. Yeah. I haven't seen any evidence yet that Smyths had any. Just kept saying none available :(
