never stop moving, never stop dodging

generally only aim for weak points on beefy bois, and then only when there's nothing dangerous and its staggered

speed and agility are your friends

set auto-sprint to on, dash and jump on l1/r1

The game absolutely gets easier as you go though, more useful artifacts and equipment, more weapons, more weapon unlocks, and a better sense of what items you should prioritize spending bucks on (plus just getting better in general, and being able to maintain adrenaline 5 for long stretches, along with aggressively collecting obols as they drop)

I got you.


After a hour or two of trying to find log 9, I think I'll leave this one unplatted until its all fixed, which I'm guessing will be a while yet because there are much bigger problems with the game, like an entire system not working and it being in dire need of saves. I really hope they manage to correct it all though, it's such a shame that the core game is so good but the high-level direction is engineered to create misery.

eh, I can't think of many games where 'I must get platinum!' was even a consideration, that it's appealing at all speaks to the draw the game has, for me at least

I totally agree all the technical fuckery sucks badly, but unfortunately that's Our New Normal, and it's probably only going to get worse for games this year - we're seeing games that were already in prod pre-pandemic, next up we're going to see games with a bigger chunk of their dev time in WFH land

Glad i'm not the only one missing log 9, apparently people have found it after act 3 late game but not for all of us. I actually have yet to see a single corpse of selene either.

The save thing it really a non-issue once you've gotten the credits and can do whatever biomes you want.

Arenít we supposed to be getting attacked by zombie Selenes or am I misinterpreting what meeting these dead bodies is supposed to be?

It's both thrilling and terrifying.

Iím not going for Plat but luckily I already had Log 9 unlocked when I finished Act 3 and was looking over my inventory.

Thatís the multiplayer integration. Unfortunately itís not working right now and when they fixed it for 1.3 it caused the save corruptions so they removed it again.

Not sure if it'll be of any help to anyone, but it seems as though some of the scout logs appear as a result of things you do in the game. Number 10 for example showed up for us when we had collected a bunch of parasites in biome 1, and I pretty sure another only showed up when I used a reconstructor in one of the biomes.

Quoting myself from earlier as it seems like a lot of people struggling to find logs. I wrote scout log number ten in my earlier post but it may have been 9, I'm not at home to check. Worth a try though, grab some parasites and try stuff you don't normally do!

Pretty crazy that this feature has been so broken that many early adopters will finish the game without ever getting to engage with it.

Itís too bad, itís a pretty neat concept. You could either salvage their remains or avenge them, which involved fighting a mini-boss and rewarded a handful of ether. And sometimes the corpse would just revive and youíd fight alien Selene.

I'm pretty sure the parasites are irrelevant, I had the datalog about parasites at 100% well before my biome 1 marathon, I started grabbing them out of superstition maxing out at 5 and nothing really changed after multiple times doing it other than making it a pain in the butt depending on what the parasites afflicted you with.

I have seen it alleged that Log #9 spawns, when it spawns at all, in the only non-singleton blue path in the Ruins and never behind the locked door, so the speedrun method is to blow through the Ruins checking every blue door until you find one with another blue door behind it, and restart if that path doesn't have the log.

The problem is, I've just done five runs of Ruins and there hasn't been a single blue door with any other doors behind it.

I looked at my logs. I havenít reached the true ending yet but I do have log 9.

I actually have most of the logs and cyphers, with the exception of biome 2, where I only have half of the latter.

This is under 20 hours so if you guys have legit put in 100, ya sounds p bugged.

Yeah I'm 19 hours and have all the logs except some in 5/6 which I did in one sitting.

I think that one's at the top of a tower right? Try going to the very back of the room and looking around for a grapple point.

I decided to do a run where I went as thorough as possible, and managed to beat the biome 3 boss, then reach the biome 4 boss, who I died to in his last health bar.

Serrated really is an insane trait for hollowseeker, drat.

When you get the portal beam + serrated projectiles, pretty much no reason to swap guns unless you find a better version or the Electropylon gun

FUUUUUUCK biome 5, I've been at this all day. Finally got two keys and had to shut it down because I can't take anymore tonight. This is far too intense, I've died so many times, I don't want to go back to the jungle!

You must believe in yourself. Maintain a positive attitude. Every time I walk into a new room I loudly affirm "you can do this jbp!" and when I see an enemy I know is hard I remind myself "watch out for the X attack, stay focused!". Hesitation is defeat.

There are so many missile drones.

At least I was smart this time and when they dropped two bots in a room I just skated through it without engaging.

I've got one revive in the back pocket for door #3, but nothing else left to upgrade that will keep me alive longer.
