I can't promise it will live up to the hype, but I tried my best.


Biggest pet peeve is charging a beam turret for melee and getting tagged by it at the last moment. Man I hate those turrets.

It's the trigger for being able start grinding out the hidden ending seeing the scene of yourself shooting down Helios? Or am I missing something else that will find me a super obvious goal?

I will corroborate what other goons have said: 2nd and 3rd biomes are easier than 1. The teleporting plant guys are still the worst.

I'm in biome 5 and 3 was by far the hardest for me. I cruised through 1 and the plants guys were easy because they telegraph where they're going which makes it easy to zip over and hit them with your sword. In fact everything in 1 is a joke when you hit them with your sword.

I also fell through the floor and took damage like I fell off the map afterwards when using the cube thing. Cool.

I honestly hate that there is fall damage in this game. I feel like 75% of my falls are pretty bullshitty. Just had a good run that was also running pretty long, completely ruined in seconds by a poorly communicated grapple point since I hadnít seen the room before.

After struggling a fair amount in biome 1 I one-shotted biome 2, then ate poo poo in biome 3 when I got too buck and went into a challenge room. You guys weren't kidding about those little dive-bomby robots, I won't do that poo poo again at least not in that biome.

there's an entire enemy type that just does not exist because housemarque fiddled where they should have faddled and removed the whole corpse mechanic from the game. it'll almost definitely be patched in

It may not be a surprise to anyone but the game works with absolutely no internet connectivity, which in 2021 is quite cool! Finding out because a lightning strike blew plaster off the walls and burned up half your home's electronics, marginally less cool!

I just had one of the "cruising through" sessions the lot of you have waxed endlessly about. Had only beat Phrike once, never could get through Biome 2 but crushed all of 1 again including Phrike (was expecting a short session and just wanted to practice my fundamentals), smashed all of 2 and the boss on first try (I don't think I even healed once) then breezed through 3 before losing to Nemesis once I had him half health. I knew very little about the fight before hand and so burned a ton of health figuring to just keep shooting him in the red spot on his hands or whatever lol

Game hard? Unquestionably, but once you get on a roll and have a little luck, it's not that hard. I had health regen per damage per Adrenaline level which is great and a Hollowcaster with Retarget or whatever, super good and useful with Adrenaline heal, and Shrapnel, meh, so I wasn't crazily fortunate. Wound up over 200% health, as well. Failure is a terrific teacher but in this game, success is superior. I learned a lot by crushing rear end after dozens and dozens of failures.

I am very particular about biscuits, I'll have you know.


I just beat it and was surprised how that happened, I arrived at biome 5 and got the three keys, got the water suit, jumped in the water and was thinking goddamn this level was super long and got credits after beating an actual fun boss

I dunno Hades kind of spoiled me on these games so after I wrap up cheevos I'm probably never gonna touch this again.

I only just now got what was probably meant to be your "introduction to the severed" cutscene in biome 2 . Walked over to blue door and was surprised that it turned into a scene out of nowhere.

Not sure if it's luck or my design but (end game) I've found three out of six sunface shards so far, each on my very next run through their respective biomes. Maybe at this point the game makes sure the rooms they're tied to will always appear? The biome 5 one was sneaky though, good thing I was being thorough about loot hunting.

the sunface shards are guaranteed to appear in each biome, but they have a handful of preset spawn points that are randomized for every loop. i know that biome 5's can appear at the top of that multi-layered platform tower (where you need to use the delphic visor) or in the room where you originally get the water-traversal gear

I bet Ixion the other morning and made it to the room before the next boss on the same run, then got absolutely murdered by those rocket drones. Biome 3 is starting to feel like a bit of a brick wall after my last few runs

You'll get there! I found it really hard. Unlocking the shortcut is a huge job and the level always feel long. I had many scrapes on my way to the boss battle when I beat it. It really throws some poo poo at you.

Just got to biome 5. Do I jump down this giant swirling pool? I only ask because I got a really good build going and donít want to lose it.

This gameís story is so mindbending and so good. Itís about time we get a game with an actually interesting story.

The devs can go gently caress themselves. Pack of assholes.

Took me 14 hours to beat biome 1.

I get into biome 2 and clear all the way to the boss and I had go to work. I come back and take the PS5 out of rest mode and the game crashes

The game saves permanent progress (basically all unlocks) at the moment of acquisition so it'd be odd to lose any of that even due to a crash unless your entire save file is corrupted, in which case the lack of mid-run save wouldn't really make a difference.

The carbine with upgraded traits is fantastic, most of the time. And then the game locks you in a room with four loving frost severed and a frost machina, your uptime on any given target is under 1 second before you have to sprint halfway across the room to not die and you find yourself praying to the dark chthonic gods of this world for something with burst or bleed damage.

And then they give you a gun with the Doombringer alt fire.
