    Congratulations. Now to do it all over again once Rebirth hits the shelves.

    Spent a few hours getting an xbox one controller to work with Dark Souls, it works with everything else I tested (even gfwl's gui in dark souls) so that's a small victory. I think it's the vjoy implementation is getting in the way of how the game sees the controller.

    I don't know if I'll go for 100% completion on Rebirth. I decided at some point I would do it for Isaac and would've backed down numerous times if not for sheer tenacity. I'll certainly be buying it the moment it's available, though.

    I've actually been waiting to get into this until Rebirth comes out. The lack of controller support in particular (the control scheme in general) was something that I couldn't get over, though I think I'd enjoy the game overall.

    The ideal way to play Isaac would be a controller with two d-pads, so failing that I'm happy with the keyboard.

    If there is actually some reason the game demands precise, rigidly locked down digital movement from two separate sources that pretty much guarantees I won't buy Rebirth. Two d-pads, ugh. I have Isaac and the expansion but I simply can't stand to play it - it just feels physically horrible to me. (On a keyboard, that is. I refuse to set up any kind of mapping program. Proper controller support or nothing, thank you.)

    Just finished Dark Souls for the first time. I am glad I'm finally free of it.




    Am enjoying Qvadriga and Stick of Truth.

    Just a heads up; spoilers here are usually done by colouring the text white. Yours doesn't bother me so much, but I dunno, it might annoy someone left like that?

    I think i had most fun in deus ex at midway-ish as the i could really start to form my own way with skills and augments (though DE does make them work really early on too). One of the missions was to get away from a building (you're at 4th floor or something) that's being attacked. Oh, i got superlegs? Just jump down and run away.

    On characters, Daedalus. Awesome first appearances.

    Qvadriga. This game where you attempt to manage a chariot racing team to glory is simple but deep; my first attempt, after a few early successes, saw my team's fortunes nosedive once my top charioteer met his inevitable bloody end. If you run out of denarii, you lose. It's really rather good, despite the odd UI deficiency (bizarrely, you can only have sound on or off - no option to keep sound effects but lose the music).

    I named myself(handle? *shudders from anachronistic language*) after Helios in DX, but once in a space themed MUD called TDZK I had a pet planet Heliocentric which I converted in a politically neutral trade haven in a distant back water. It thrust me into the world of crafty hunters and patrolling escorts squads.

    I owe that digital rock my passion of real politik gaming.

    Oh. Well, I suppose I managed to ignore them. There really is a ton of ways to get through this game, isn't there?

    I've drifted back to Shogun 2 now that I've finished the Witcher 2 - the 1.2 patch bugs me a bit. I can't remember what default equipment I'm meant to start with and it's dumped a whole ton of free stuff in my lap. I don't want the free stuff it seems 'too good' but I don't want to ditch the equipment I ought to start with either. I'm probably missing an obvious solution however.

    10? I could only last 4. You're a better person than me. I presume you played on the hardest difficulty? It prolongs the time from you finding the combat to be engaging to yawn inducing my probably an hour or so.

    I've spent the last 10 or so hours trying to get the Dark Boy achievement which would then give me Platinum God and holy shit, it's just so frustrating. "Have bible, get hit on first room of the Depths." "Get to Mom, it's elite version which spawns tons of annoying adds." AHHHHHHHH. SCREW THIS WONDERFUL GAME. Still, 250 hours? I'm at 216, at least I have a target! If you have any recommendations for it, please pass them my way. PLEASE. PLEAAAAAAAAASE. *Starts sobbing*

    Anyhow, I've gone back into Shogun 2: Fullest Conflict and thanks to advice provided by Serenegoose, I've got into it far better than I have last time. I actually built some boats, I've got a nice army that's sweeping through most locations, even if my defences are pretty weak, and I'm just up to half-way through the (short) campaign with 4/6 required provinces captured. I feel like I have a good shot at winning this campaign, even if it will be a bit close. Fortunately, I have something ridiculous like 20K in the bank, so in about 5 turns I could have a second very strong army to help my advances. Unfortunately, I'm in that mid-game stage where you start breaking alliances to advance, but you don't just break the one you're attacking, it's also those that are allied to them.

    Either way, I find as my Isaac game-time is decreasing due to coming close to 'finishing' it, Shogun seems to be taking up the mantle of Podcast Game, so long as Risk of Rain doesn't creep back in there.

    Dark Boy was my last one, too. It's sheer luck, really; play as Isaac, re-roll every health item, gamble your health away since you won't need it, try to get the Book of Shadows/Game Kid/similar invincibility item, flying, and pray for The Emperor. I finally did it by holding on to The Sun (and my breath!) through both levels of The Depths and getting some extremely lucky spawns (none of those damn masks or greed heads). Death is another good option to kill Mom quickly. I managed to keep from going insane by constantly having movies running in the background and a good portion of that time was spent idling between rooms. CCleaner fucks with your unlocked secrets, so I ended up having to re-beat The Chest a few times as well.

    I was having a look at some guides that recommended using the challenge runs from Lamb to give you a chance; Meat Boy, Doctor's Revenge...gave Spider a go last night, that seemed to do moderately well. I've never really liked the D6 too much, but maybe it is time to just give him a go. I definitely get you on having someone going in the background though; usually have a video on YouTube up or something something. Sounds like I'm, generally speaking, staying pretty close to the tools you used.

    I've been revisiting the Armored Core games lately. Weirdly, the most recent one seems like a big, clunky step back even from AC2, but maybe I missed some important developments in AC4 or whatever.

    Sometimes metroidvania style games open up after you gain more abilities, so I gave this one a chance. Unfortunately it seems like by the time I got the ability to go through those narrow spaces you see everywhere, I realized that I'll have to replay all the areas I've been to, just to see what's hidden behind those obstacles. So instead of wasting a couple of more hours on that I just quit (and yes, I know it's probably optional. But OCD).

    Fair enough. I just couldn't keep myself going!

    And as if by magic...YAY! I'd like to thank the D6, Polyphemus AND Technology 2 (that somehow work in tandem), The Peeper, Daddy's Love (stomping spider leg), THE BIBLE, Transcendence (flight) and a crutch Book of Shadows that saved me from a horrible room at in a split second in The Necropolis.

    Except it didn't unlock Platinum God. Turns out I'm at 96/97 secrets found. I...have no idea what else I'm missing :/
