  1. And that was like five seconds after taking the full five minutes for a slightly less terrible spin kick to the nuts. Daniels looked pretty terrible in that fight all around.
  2. I opened my first walkthrough to find the crystal hearts in Celeste, got them, fired up the Chapter 8 b-side and just thought, nope. I think Chapter 6 b-side broke me. Great game but I'm done with it. Did start the Ace Attorney Trilogy and enjoying it a lot so far. I've tried a couple of the text-based Japanese games, like AI Somnium Files and a horror game I'm completely blanking on the name of. This one's hooked in a lot faster though and could be the first one I actually see to completion.
  3. Took a day off Celeste ( and got lured back into that sweet temptress that is Slay The Spire. Knocked Ascension 14-17 off the list for The Defect. First time I ever bought prismatic shard and made for a really neat build, with cards like Feed and Cloak and Dagger on Defect. Think I'll do that again sometime because I'm sure that build would have won A20/killed the heart. ) Anyway, fired back up Celeste to knock off the B-sides. Holy man - averaged around 400 deaths for each from chapters 2 - 5. Missed the B-side on Chapter 6 my first time through, so will go and get that BUT did beat the
  4. Finally decided to play Celeste and finished the main campaign in two days. Only collected one crystal, so was not able to do the core level but did get all except one of the B-side tapes I think. Knocked off one of the B-sides post-game(chapter 2) and my brain needs a break. 7 hours over the past two days and it's Celeste so that's a pretty intense 7 hours of gaming. Right up there with Hollow Knight as my favourite of the recent platformers. Both are really hard, but Celeste is a bit more forgiving in that you respawn so quickly. I doubt that I'll 100% it, but will dive into more the B-sides
  5. I think with Silent the only real winnable build is a scaling poison build. I feel like Ironclad you can go strength scaling through demon form, artifact/flex, the sword card/limit break. Or you can do high-hp deck through Feed/Reaper, or an exhaust deck with Feel No Pain / Corruption ( quick aside, the first time I stumbled across corruption/dead branch, wow. That is a game breaker). The Defect can do an offensive/defensive/mixed orb build, or a claw build. But with Silent, I feel you're very limited as far as making a winning deck. Always pick up catalyst or corpse explosion, because wi
  6. Scott Adkins is doing a series of interviews called The Art of Action on youtube. I'm a sucker for old-school HK stories and the Richard Norton one I watched yesterday was great.
  7. I'm going to start Lovecraft Country tonight, but anyone else watching Ted Lasso? I'm enjoying that way more than I thought I would. Watched the first episode thinking I'd get something vapid in the style of Ballers, but I am totally hooked on pretty much everything going on in the show. Love the Sudeikis character and was going to start naming others until I realised I like every supporting character. It's the show I look forward to most for the past few weeks.
  8. This is how I feel, too. When I eat out, I want something that either I can't cook, takes too long, or has too much clean up after. Steak is the easiest, low-prep food you can do at home. I've got a soft spot for Sizzlers. Mainly because it was always my go-to in Bangkok when I was on a visa trip back when Myanmar was in its dark days and there were like four Western restaurants in the city. The food was always mediocre, but just being able to hit that salad bar with an entree and fill yourself up for 10 bucks was always something to look forward to. It was kind of like McDonalds, I'd cra
  9. I said I'd put it down, but something just makes me keep coming back to it. INTENDED to start a different game last night, decided to have just one Defect run ( A13), two hours later realised I had used up all of my gaming time on Slay again... Didn't make it past floor 2. Had an awesome build at one point but a couple bad hallway fights/card draws and that was all she wrote.
  10. I started Slay The Spire up again and the rng gods were in my favour because I ran through Ascension 19 and 20 with The Silent, and Ascension 20 with Ironclad in four or five tries total. I've never played a card-based game like this before and enjoyed it waaaaay more than I thought I would. Time to put it to rest though. Getting crushed on floor 1 or 2 on Ascension 20 gets demoralising really quickly.
  11. I fired up Slay The Spire again a few weeks ago and got hooooked this time. It was fun climbing through Ascension, but I'm stuck at 20 with Ironclad and 18 with The Silent and lost the will to keep going. Played through Mario Odyssey the last week and enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. Like yeah, it shouldn't have surprised me, but that was a really fun experience. I got to the darkest side of the moon today, died on a stupid mistimed jump and shut it off, but I think I will 'finish' it tomorrow. 500 moons is all I'm collecting, just wanted to unlock this last world. Not sure whe
  12. I had to google after reading this post and only just found out that Benavidez left Alpha Male. And Figueiredo was the Alpha Male rep in this fight? Huh. For someone who watches every UFC show, I really don't know what happens outside of the cage for the most part.
  13. They announced and cancelled a few events over the past few months. Once they announced a Thailand event with fights attached, it was they were going with only local fighters so a muay thai-heavy card was guaranteed. International flights are pretty much shut down through SEA, aside from relief flights for people to get back to their home countries. I'm not sure when the next card will happen, unless they stick to booking only local fighters. I'll take what I can get though.
  14. That's very cool to hear. I wish I'd known that when I played the game, or even better if I'd seen it in the credits that would have been a total mark out moment for me. The last line about him being strange - I meant it to come off as endearing because the guy is like a low-key idol for me in life. Dude never gave up on his dream of being in action movies and I guess has made a good career out of it for himself. He is what 20 year old me would have said I'd wanted to be but didn't have nearly enough drive to stick with it ( or even get started aside from a couple homemade beat'em ups wit
  15. Is Thimbleweed Park the best adventure game ever? I think I'm at the last chapter and it was a total blast from start to finish. I really tried not to use the hint line, but still used it way more often than I probably should have. I sunk about 13 hours into it this weekend and it was the decompression I needed after this past week.
