Clear off, fatso, this is a respectable establishment




The romance options don't exclude each other and it's fine to not go there if you don't want to. Follow your heart.

I'm pretty sure Artemis is only into nymphs but she'll hang out with you anyway.

Isn't Artemis your cousin.

(I realise that's probably the least hosed up Greek pantheon relationship but still.)

I mean the actual romance options are sort of Zag's siblings...

They're gods, it's fine.

Of the base weapons I'm pretty sure sword is the highest DPS but probably the most dangerous to use. That's its niche, raw damage potential and the ability to prep your Special right before you dash is a cool trick

Is this true? I know the basic sword combo with absolutely no modifiers deals 75 damage (20 + 25 + 30), which is the same for the 5-hit combo for Fists (15 each hit) but I've never actually timed them or done the testing to determine how the DPS compares when you also figure in their openers (e.g. Dash-Upper for Fists).

PRETTY SURE THAT ONE'S SARCASM, BOSS



The third hit of the sword combo is pretty dangerous and usually not worth using.

I had a good run going once with the hammer that makes that third hit 200% stronger. Only the once tho

Also if I'm playing Excalibur, if I have to take it on the chin to get that third 300-base-damage slice so be it

realtalk though, the writing has been very good as usual through the romances I've seen. one thing i'm wondering, though, is there any divergent development or dialogue beyond the initial scene if you go the just-friends routes? a (dim) excuse for a third save, on Hell Mode, perhaps...????


this game's going to be an every-day sort for a long time

I like when Achilles says something like “You’re all immortal gods. Monogamy doesn’t suit you.”

Sword gets hammer options that are enormous multiplicative damage boosts (200% backstab damage, Flurry Slash, Colossus Chop) which gets it spiking higher than the fists if you can stay in the sweet spot

Fist hammers tend to increase AoE coverage and general utility - far fists are a really nice QOL

One of my favorite bits is when you're chatting with achillies and he's like "yeah I'm guessing you're the god of blood probably? You've got the stones, you bleed red, eh I dunno."
