Now maybe there's something he missed, but he read the manual and hit-and-run tactics didn't look like they'd work. Except maybe with magic, which would...not be fun...I dunno, doesn't look like he did anything wrong.

Haven't played the game, but it's clearly seen in the video:
- enemies have painstates
- combat is not automated - you click once, you hit once

So, I guess that you can time your attacks to hit enemies in the middle of their attack animation, aborting it and triggering a painstate.

I've watched other LPs of Clans. Not sure you can actually be good at that game.

I just gave it a try and while Willy seems to technically be right, you can stunlock them. It came off really awkward to accomplish. Maybe it gets easier, but this wasn't exactly a game I'm eager to play to begin with. For one, I spent around five minutes in the game and the map seemed to be seriously screwed up, not showing where I had actually been. For another, if I wanted a bullshit adventure game masquerading as a RPG, I'd play Elvira again.

Did I hear that right? He's gonna make a 4th one soon? He's talking about that shooter that he had to put a hold on to finish the Halloween game dungeons but has resumed now?

If that's true, its not surprising he's done so little this year. Personally I wish he'd spend more time on Freeman's Mind episodes, but I understand the reasons he does more Game Dungeons.
I've got nothing to base this on, but I wonder if the shooter is Killing Time. I know he has it on his game list, but I don't know if he's ever actually done games for Game Dungeon that he has on his games list.

I much prefer Game Dungeon to Freeman's Mind these days, since the latter series has become pretty samey only with more shouting and cursing as Freeman's frustration grows.
Game Dungeon also had a drop in quality last year and early this year but these recent episodes are really good again (I have not watched Daemonica yet).

Is Daemonica really runs on Torque engine? Why all Torque engine RPGs look so nice and cozy?

He said the shooter game will have good music, or good shooting mechanics, I forgot which one, maybe both.

you can tell daemonica was made by the inquisitor devs. they both have the exact habit of insane, mind-numbing lore dumps, and they both share the same UI aesthetics

It wasn't made in Torque but in an older version of 3D Game Studio which is based on its own game engine (the version the game is on is the "A6 Engine" though the current one is "A8 Engine").

The ending is interesting:

If he decides to help Fabius, the demon is pulled into Fabius who then returns to Rome where he helps to make the Church stronger as new crusades across the world are led. The live in Cavorns go on peacefully as no-one notices the shadow that will swallow all.

This dubious "shadow" reference aside, it seems that the Demon is rather nice guy after all.

Painkiller? Have good music but shooting mechanics? Beside stake launcher with GL (which they broke in Hell&Damnation) that does not fit.

No clue, maybe it's good for Ross?

Ross just announced -in his January chat- that he's going to be taking a break from game dungeon and instead start looking for someone to do his editing so he can make more videos. Donno how much of a quality plunge this will make, he says he's still going to review the videos and approve them if they abide by his standards, we'll see.

More Game Dungeon would be welcome. Ross has a talent for finding very obscure games and making them interesting.

Hopefully quality won't go down too badly, he did something similar with legends of kirandia and I didn't like that episode as much, but it wasn't bad, still an enjoyable watch.
