I always like their goofy intro skits (this one included), but "the only woman is repeatedly gaslit, interrupted, and ignored; things only move forward when she takes it upon herself to thanklessly mother oblivious men" is some impressively dark social commentary for a lighthearted, goofy intro skit!

Been looking forward to AGDQ for a while. Not familiar with too many of the runs and/or games today, but that's half the fun :getin:

Gonna have to play VOD catch up this year, no ability to take off work for it.

I'll probably tune in after Nioh 2, I actually do want to get around to playing it past the first mission some day.

one of the great things about nioh 2 is that it highly rewards strong game knowledge and a full use of the tools it provides, but you can also go into it blind and play through it like a souls game with little loss in enjoyment. it's all about how you want to tackle it

the way in which nioh 2's stamina (chi) system works allows you to trivially stunlock bosses on regular new game if you have the right weapons/weapon buffs/soul cores ready

This Nioh run makes me actually want to play this game. I had always written it off as something that looked kinda generic?

Also, I'll be hosting for Halo, Halo 5, Diddy Kong Racing, and Link to the Past later this week! AHHHHH

nioh 1's mostly a straightforwards soulslike, but nioh 2 is its own thing and is an extremely fun game with how much outrageous poo poo you can do

I liked everything about Nioh 1 except for the randomized loot stuff. Nioh 2 appears to have kept that aspect so I ignored it but it does look fun.

it's mostly a thing you do if you really like the game and wanna keep pounding through the NG+++ material, but doing a full playthrough of the base game with whatever drops is entirely viable

How do you begin to learn Nioh 2, anyway? I was kinda overwhelmed with the sheer number of things in that game when I last gave it a shot.

is... the bonus game status supposed to double up the name like that?

e: I'm curious if the deathloop run can make me interested in that game. i put about 10 hours into it and really just did not enjoy it at all

If you open up the little window at the top of the wall, you can reach outside without having to leave the basement. But that's more of a credits warp from the title screen kind of thing

Prime Hunters reminds me that there were more than a couple of DS/3DS games in mainline Nintendo series that I will simply never play because the controls were so off-putting to me at the time that I didn't even give them a chance
