    Don't forget DMC 5 this Friday. If you like Devil May Cry that is. Also, if you haven't already, I'd suggest playing the remake of Resident Evil 2 to anyone. It's amazing. I was going to say Days Gone comes out in April but that's a PS4 exclusive isn't it?? Also, on the 22nd of March Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice come out for all platforms. It's the next entry into the Souls and Bloodborne series and none of those games have disappointed.

    I'll be honest, no I haven't played a lot of MMOs. Does Anthem qualify as an MMO though? I thought it was a loot shooter. I know that it has to be played online but it's not a MMO in the same vein as say World of Warcraft or any of the Elder Scrolls online games. (Those are about the only MMOs I've played) I've heard people say give it a few months but admittedly I'm not used to that. Most games I play are story driven single player games or RPGs. So I can see your point. I'm not used to having to wait for games to get better though.

    Well everyone, it finally happened. I finally made it far enough in Dead Cells to where I feel confident that I can provide valuable feedback.

    My last review was a very angry one, because after months of playing the damn game I still couldn't complete it. I should note that defeating the end boss merely qualifies you to play the game at a higher difficulty. I've defeated the end boss twice now, earning my way into the "Very Hard" difficulty, where I'm constantly trounced by every enemy in the game.

    If you must play this game, there are a few things you should know first:

    The Weapons
    Click for Spoiler:
    90% of the weapons in this game are bullshit. I'm sorry, I don't think I said that loudly enough. *ahem* 90% OF THE WEAPONS IN THIS GAME ARE BULLSHIT!! So yeah, keep that in mind.

    This game has enemies that throw bombs, and can throw them through walls or other obstructions. Sometimes these bombs linger for a few seconds, or sometimes they explode on contact with the ground. Sometimes enemies will throw bombs for no damn reason, and you only see that they've been thrown by entering a new area where you now have 1/10 of a second to escape before dying.

    The point of explaining the bomb enemies' capabilities to you is to emphasize that, slow weapons are suicide. Slow weapons require at least a half-second before you indicate that you want to attack, and your attack executing. This is mainly why 90% of the weapons in the game are bullshit, with some other reasons being that some weapons really don't do jack shit for damage.

    The ONLY weapons you will need are the following:

    Melee;

    Frantic Sword, because every hit is critical when below 50% health, and it hits damn hard otherwise anyway.

    Torch, don't let the stats fool you, this one hits damn hard. For some odd reason you'll see a very low number for damage, but apparently the lingering fire affect makes up for the low damage.

    Blood Sword, only use it if you have no other option, as it does bleeding damage. It doesn't hit very hard though.

    Ranged;

    Ice Shards, they don't have much range, but they're a damn good setup for melee attacks as they'll slow down enemies that are hit by them.

    Hokuto's Bow, make this one a top priority. It usually only has two arrows, but hitting an enemy with one of those arrows makes your melee attacks a lot more powerful. I was able to kill the end boss in under 30 seconds using this bow. The other bosses when down like little bitches.

    Accessories;

    Cluster Grenade, make this one a top priority as well. This bomb covers a wide area with multiple bombs, and they all pack a huge punch. One shot from Hokuto's bow, and a rain of bombs is how I would initiate boss battles.

    Root Grenage, this will hold your enemies in place and hurt them over time. Enemies can still make ranged attacks, but they can't turn around. You'll have a huge advantage with this one, as it affects bosses as well.


    The Powerups
    Click for Spoiler:
    Pick a color for damage, and stick with it.

    Based on my weapon recommendations, I obviously picked red as often as I could.

    If you just focus on one color, you can have 25-30 when you confront the end boss. Those small improvements make a huge difference later on. Most enemies can three hit kill you anyway, so don't worry about building up your hitpoints by picking other colors.


    So, I finally beat The Hand of the King. On Normal mode, and on Hard mode.

    The developers apparently tweaked the difficulty on me.

    Before, The Hand of the King would start off by charging at you and forcing you into a pit of spikes. You'd think that knowing that would allow you to easily roll past him, but no. If you were a split second off, his charge would catch you and into the spikes you'd go. There's a small platform made of ice above the spikes, and if you hop onto that and try to double-jump over The Hand of the King when he charges you'll be caught and forced into the spikes.

    Now, The Hand of the King starts off by staring at you. You can run up to him, and he'll indicate that he's going to swing his weapon. At this point you can roll past him easily and attack him from behind, or roll back and attack him with a ranged weapon.

    I'm honestly a little miffed that as I was mastering kicking that dudes ass, the developers suddenly decided that it was too hard and made it obscenely easy (on normal mode, mind you).

    On normal mode, I killed him in less than 30 seconds. I'd have destroyed him faster if he didn't have to interrupt the battle to go invincible and send his cronies after me.

    On hard mode, just watch...
    Click for Spoiler:


    So I killed him, and I was able to count a lot of mistakes that I made in the process. Most experienced players would likely laugh at how cheap I was and how I lacked skill, but for the record I STILL FUCKING KILLED HIS ASS!

    But anywho, Dead Cells. The game that I hate, and it hates me. But it's honestly the only game I ever play these days.

    I'm actually trying to find a game to get interested in again. I've been playing 7 Days to Die for a while, but I have kind of maxed out what I can do in my world. I did download "Towers Unite", a monthly Humble Bundle product, and it looks kind of interesting.

    Playing Dragon Quest 11, though the game is extremely colorful, a joy to watch....there is just something really MEH about it. Nothing jumps out as -outstanding- in this game, other than boss battles. I'm almost forcing myself to play it at this point 22 hours in (take away 5 ish hours of the controller on the counter while I drive away to grab groceries.) The music is fine, but really, really repetitive early. The characters are mostly hollow and fairly annoying for whatever reason, perhaps it stems from this weird Japanese childish vibe the game slings in your face often. It doesn't work for me at times. Theres an entire episode of assisting a Sultan's bratty, cowardly child that was really grinding on the nerves how annoying the voice acting was for him, if it wasn't for a great boss battle, I'd have dropped the episode and left the game unplayed.

    It's still fairly early I guess, I want to give this game more of a chance as it does get better, but other than some good battles, the story, characters and repeating music score is souring the experience for me.

    For first time players, expect nothing but story telling and hand holding for a long time before you are challenged in this game. It takes awhile.
