I appear to be in the minority of people, when I looked at the comparisons between these games. But I'm finding Dead Cells to be far more engaging in its challenge than Hades is. Even if I've only just scratched the surface of both.

Mainly because it feels like Hades' gameplay and subsequent deaths are inevitable in a way. Where as in Dead Cells, I always feel like I have an honest shot, in spite of the higher difficulty curve. But I'll certainly be playing more of both of them in good time. (Maybe that feeling will change, we'll see. I know Supergiant's Pyre got me to care about the characters over its gameplay.)

Though what hasn't changed, is how little I want a new game console. Now that the highest praised release that I've seen was for Horizon: Zero Originality. (This time with wings.) "Immortal Fenyx Rising" is an unmemorable title that I had to look up. And that essentially boils down to "Yeah, it's an open world game alright." or "You know all those increasingly dull Asscreed games they've been spewing out ad-nauseum? This is better than those."

But I digress. The other game that I've been playing as of late, which I'm much closer to completing, is "Hand Of Fate". Though let me tell you, that its unique gameplay premise, is far better on paper than how its actually executed. Because it's combat/maze sections (or more importantly, its camera during those parts) is frustratingly bad. Like something on the level of "if I had access to their unity engine, *I* could improve this." However, I don't tend to engage with things for long, if I completely dislike them. So I suppose I enjoy it enough for what its trying to be. (But maybe it's obvious for a roleplayer to enjoy storytelling.)

Lastly, I recently/reluctantly traded my 2DS for all my roommate's Switch accessories, and a PS4 game that I'll likely be playing again with some friends this weekend. ("Dragon Crown Pro") Which is good, since nothing else of interest has cropped up as of late. Even if a part of me wants to buy Jank Souls. ("Hellpoint") because it's Co-Op. And I want them to pay for the terrible movies that I had to watch last time.

Why the fuck is Kingdoms of Amalur: the Re-Reckoning sold out, like I mean it's sold out and out of stock everywhere. Why?

As the gaming version of the McRib. I can tell you-

I remember this company went bankrupt or close to it at some point. And this game had a bunch of overpriced versions of it, that were also notoriously difficult to find. So old habits die hard?

I lied. Instead we played Risk Of Rain 2 on the Switch. And surprisingly, it runs fine, menu loading aside. Quite immediately engaging, actually. So I can see why everyone this past year has gushed all over it. Though the level design and 'its the same-color everywhere' stages can absolutely drain one's enthusiasm if you get stuck/lost.

Dead Cells has the best graphics for a Switch game, by far the best graphics I've seen.

I have those two games on PC. (Hades/Dead Cells.) But I could certainly believe it to be in the upper echelon on the Switch, with how its art design is. Honestly, the Switch's games can look quite pretty. Hollow Knight looked fantastic on it for example. (To me.) (Though can confirm that Switch's version of Risk of Rain 2 is a bit uggo. But graphics have never been that big of a deal. (To me.)

Good luck on your gaming scavenger hunt.

I've never pre-ordered games or consoles. (And you shouldn't either, person reading. :I) But the only game that I've ever had an issue finding at release was "Until Dawn". (The so-bad-its-well-probably-still-bad horror game, that I enjoyed playing regardless.)

Checked most of the stores in my area with no luck, and finally, I find a copy of it at Target. (I think. Maybe it was a Walmart.) Though since the employees didn't know if a single copy existed or not. I ended up looking for the thing on my own. And the poor box wasn't even on the shelf with the other games. Its lying on the bottom shelf, all on its own, with no price tag to be found. (So among everything else that happened with its lack of PR at the time. Sony really wanted that game to die, it seems.)

Sony is going to have another covid stay at home/free game event FYI. There's subnautica and some other games that'll be free for a couple days.

Don't let it steal your soul. D: (Or all your cash through microtransactions. Picture looks like a "I paid money for this." screen.)



I spent a day's worth of time playing some Diablo clone on my phone a few days back. But it was slowly starting to show off it's "timers" to me. And like most mobile games, its elements that insist you need to play "PVP" or as a group, always turn me right the f*ck off. (For good reason, as it's always a cheap and unreliable gimmick in the latter case.) So I uninstalled it, to save myself from wasting more time, or the money it was attempting to cajole from me.

Though in more surprising/enjoyable news, I actually got my family to play something on console over Easter Sunday. Since I've only gotten them to play Jackbox games on their phones before. So I was pleasantly surprised at how much I got them into it. (Ultimate Chicken Horse, to be precise.) Meaning I'll have to get them into trying others in the future. *twirls mustache*

And now, there's some actual new games out there that I want to play with others. (Not like I don't have plenty of those already.) But I've only heard good things about Monster Hunter Rise. And, It Takes Two. So there's two more games to add to the ever-increasing list. (And maybe Outriders too, if it can get its shit together.)

Speaking of mobile games, I was having some fun playing the TWD: No Man's Land mobile game, but I haven't bothered touching it in awhile. It wasn't a bad game by any means, but the fact that it is now dipping into standard mobile game territory is a huge flaw for me and is putting me off from playing it.

You'd think I'd have something more interesting or complicated considering my usual gaming habits but I blew up 3 hours playing Mamono Sweeper. All it is is just a rpg monster-themed minesweeper game yet here we are.

Y'know, for as much as I'd like to flaunt my SSR collection, it's not that impressive. Yeah- I spent a bit of money getting there- a grand total of 1 euro for a Phoebe pack and nothing else. Getting SSRs in this game isn't actually the problem, it showers you in gacha currency and tickets to roll with and you get a guaranteed SSR on 20 rolls on a Select banner, with 70 rolls guaranteeing the cover unit.

No, the problem in this game is actually maxing the SSRs you do have out. Miyuki is super easy because not only does she have a select banner for new players, but you also get two duplicates of her logging in... others, however, are less lucky. Either you pray to the gacha gods to get more copies through rolling or you spend weeks at a time slowly grinding out 1-3 shards at a time in Arcana.

Don't take that as me complaining, though. Grinding is part of the fun in gacha games. The fact it's not too hard getting the characters you want is a bonus for me.

Question for those who have played Hellpoint, what are your opinions on the gameplay and would you recommend it's worth it to purchase on Switch?
