    ^Managed to defeat a level 7 enemy hero as level 4 thanks to my decision to rely on bees and hornets. Bringing 10 hp Meatshields is kinda pointless if they can't block the flying units. And units hit by hornets autodie at the end of the turn anyway.
    Taking additional self-sacrifice spellcards(sacrifice a unit to add it's stats towards another one) proved to be redundant.

    A big black widow is mocking and patronizing me. For many Australians it is just a typical Monday morning, but for me it was a beginning of a long journey into unknown.

    Excellent soundtrack.

    Few more. Almost finished, i think im on mission 27 of 30. And then there is the expansion pack.
    Such a good game. Big maps with everything to scale, units actually look small compared to terrain and buildings. Pre mission squad configuration is great, and the game mechanics are top notch and tactical. Units move deliberateraly and smoothly (no robot dancing and jerking around like in so many other RTS games), all of the units are tactical usefull and have strenghts and weaknesses and the special weapons and equipment really add another dimension and can be super useful at the right moments. Unit positioning is crucial and can win or lose your mission, and scout units are actually useful for scouting which is important.Plus some units are kind of OP which is great. And there are nice effects and details, like the artillery shells which peel of when fired.

    Its kind of amazing this was made by a few swedes in their basement who've never made a game prior.

    Really glad they are going back to their roots, even if it feels a bit like you have done it before. Still, really enjoyable to play. And yeah, they are holding an open beta currently on Uplay.

    Killed the lich's past and unlocked the gunslinger. God bless rainbow mode for being drooling retarded baby-easy. Actually was closer to 2 and a half hours because of having to do the lich-killing run as the paradox first which was quite a chunk of Gungeon to play, but I'm glad to get some unlocking done. Incidentally, Old Goldie the shotgun is fucking amazing with the gunslinger. His passive of getting all synergies on guns turns it into an unstoppable rape cannon, one and two shot nearly everything with it. Gundromeda strain helped too, naturally.

    Aliens vs Predator 1994. I've learned that I'm actually pretty bad at this, it took me something like 10 attempts to beat second level without dying :negative: . But I feel like game is pretty rewarding skill wise since you have plenty of tools to deal huge damage and avoid getting hit, although grab mechanics annoy me. Good fun and challenge for now, haven't felt such thrill in a while.

    id's Rage engine gets a lot of flack for texture issues and whatnot, and rightly so, but when it wants to look good it can look pretty damn good. From Wolfenstein The Old Blood:

    This game man, they clearly cared more about getting players to spend their money on arcade tokens... I got to the last level and the game really shows a lot of bullshit design in it's second half.
    Firstly the damage enemies deal is absurd - you can be killed in 4-6 hits (or even 2, some bosses hit that hard) and there are a lot of enemies for you to kill, plus you have to spend some time comboing their asses, but they can just close in and slap you for full damage in single hit.
    Secondly enemies have amazing reaction and attack properties, sure you have some time to attack first but it's a short window, 80% of enemies attacks have no delays and come out very fast so you can't even react to them (there are aliens that spit acid at you from half a screen away and it hits you for 1/5 of your health, this attack comes without any warning), advanced enemies have more reach than you and even faster reaction, it's especially noticeable at second boss. Sometimes I get hit out of "dash" moves that allow you to cross the entire screen at a second, but enemies still react fast enough to hit you out of them.
    Thirdly grab mechanics are annoying, you should be familiar with it's principle - you get close to the enemy and you grab them, but when you are fighting off hordes you don't fucking need that, the moment I accidentaly grab somebody I'm instantly hit by other enemies because grabs don't give you any protection (oops 1/5 of life gone). There's also a problem when there are a lot of items on the ground and you character starts picking them up instead of attacking the enemies, since you also pick up items by pressing attack button, argh.
    And lastly you can't run (although dash moves allow for great mobility) but what really sucks is that you can't travel Z axis at great speeds, you can only walk and it really fucks you up in battles, it's especially insulting that some enemies can do that.

    Encounter design is fucking excellent as well. The game tries to own your ass as early as level 2 (it's only going to worse from there) the boss of this level is a lighting fast motherfucker that outranges you, dashes across the screen (and jumps you out of the screen) and kills you in 4 hits, but it's not really a problem compared to what comes next. At level 4 they introduce ambushes, basically enemies charge at you out of the screen, unless you know it's coming you are going to get hit (that's 1/4 of your life) and still have a horde of monsters to kill. The fucking alien queen - the boss of that level is pure retardation, I searched for some videos where people that are better than me beat this fucking game - nobody kills that boss legit, because it's impossible. She attacks at both directions simultaneously and you can't even sidestep her attacks because they have such an amazing reach, lol. Some guy killed her by using a disc, but it's RNG. Later levels have same shit but at greater quantities, although bosses aren't as retarded. I rage quit final level though, didn't get to the boss, might do it later.

    Alien queen abuse - stand on the crates so she can't attack you.
