    The moment's passed. Maybe in another 7 years.

    Checked my trophy list earlier and there are definitely some that didn't pop, like acts 2 and 3. Hoping if I kill Ophion again now with this patch it'll give me them.

    Don't think I have many logs left, funnily enough one of them is 009 though.

    It's amazing what short work a decent pylon driver can make of the last boss:

    Annoyingly I took one hit right at the end, even though my shield soaked it up.

    Had a great run earlier and seemed to clear everything by the time I got to the first boss.

    Had it down to the last slither of health and got caught out by that punch thing it does. Absolutely gutting feeling going all the way back to the start after doing so well.

    Ha you need to get used to that. You'll be clearing the first area with your eyes closed before long.

    Imagine that feeling but it's the third boss and it's still all the way back to the beginning.

    It really was a kick in the balls but just made me more determined to crack on and do it again.

    If this was dark souls I would have binned it off, not sure why I can't get into those games. Maybe Sci fi setting of Returnal and the fact dark souls is melee based.

    Ach, this game. Haven't played for a while, good long run through B1-3, full health bar plus long extension. Got to B3 boss, couldn't work out/remember what to shoot at, barely tickled him, dead. Cunt. I really enjoy it but that stings a bit too much.

    Yeah, Iím binning it until thereís a save option of some sort. Iíd like to play it, but also other games and the sleep mode save stuff is ridiculously restrictive.

    @Rum_Monkey when he send out his red rings he will then teleport to you and then swing his fist. Don't shift away too quickly, I tended to run towards the rings and when he shifted to me as soon as he stopped I would phase through the red rings escaping damage from both.

    Once I got a hang of that he is a breeze.

    I need to fight my natural urge of hanging back and picking off enemies and fighting from distance. It doesn't really suit this game.

    Yeah controlled aggression is the way. Your sword fucks shit up too.

    Forgot about using the sword.

    Yeah don't do that. Basically any of the bigger stuff are very susceptible to melee. Dash in, sword to the cunt, blap blap blap and scene.

    I will sword the cunt tonight, I need to stop only using the carbine and try out other weapons too.

    Yeah the giant trees that shoot sticky ground stuff and fire homing missiles. Dash towards them and 3 or 4 hits with the sword and they are down. Realising that made them so much easier.

    Sword is also invincible if your dodge is on a cool down

    Oh not the boss, keep away from him, I mean the semi big things. Carbine is by far the best weapon until you hit B2 to be honest.

    Phrike will try his melee attack if you hang around next him trying to sword him more than once. So be ready to phase out the way.

    Killed the fucker, that was intense. I had a good run through and melee has changed my approach entirely.

    Have to pray rest mode doesn't fail me and fuck up my run for tomorrow.

    If you're getting the first boss down this quickly you should be fine with the rest of it, he's a pretty big difficulty spike to get over.

    That's good to know because he had me sweating. Made my way into biome 2 which seems a lot more open, rest mode has never failed me before so fingers crossed.

    I was having trouble with those tentacle fuckers that jump at you and turn red but the sword makes quick work of them.

    @Rum_Monkey Biome 2 is fine apart from the sword pricks in the second half of it. You'll be getting into your stride now though.

    Don't be afraid to mix up weapons as often as you can and start unlocking all the perks. There isn't really a bad weapon in the game. Even the Rotgland Lobber, which I avoided like the plague, is devasting after a few perks have been unlocked. I just rinsed B3 with it and it made a joke of everything.

    Also, in case it's not been mentioned recently. If you go into a room with full health and see some green lying around, hoover all that shit up pronto. You want to be focusing on extending your health bar. That Rotgland run I ended up finishing with 300% (max) integrity.

    He/she/it is still quite tough even when youre pro. Im always surprised at how hard it is every time I do a boss run even with a weapon with a l2 or l3 trait.

    A decent levelled hollowseeker makes pretty short work of him I find. I think all of the bosses are pretty easy once you understand their timing. And that's coming from someone who is normally awful at boss fights

    This is almost the only game where I don't get a sense of dread before each boss fight. I've died to each boss more than once but I absolutely love fighting them.

    In fact, this is probably the first time I'm ever going to say this: I'd love a boss rush mode. They could do it like the challenge runs with random weapons / perks etc

    Yeah hope they've got some other modes and stuff planned, it's crying out for it really. The daily challenge thing doesn't really do it for me.

    A tower style survival mode would be cool. Room after room of increasingly difficult challenge rooms.

    They are pretty much my favourite thing in every biome.

    Before anything else is added they've got to sort the save system out. I like to have one or two games on the go (currently playing ratchet and clank) but not being able to dip in and out drives me crazy.
