fuck. anyway, banjo kazooie: nuts and bolts is so much better than i ever gave it credit for being. it's inventive and charming as fuck once it opens up. i bought this at launch and only made it as far as unlocking the third world, which is just barely scratching the surface of how the game wants you to experiment with its vehicles. and those vehicles are a blast, let down really only by many of the tasks you're given to do with them. rare's always has a problem with filler but when so many objectives, and so much of the game design, are hinging on the kind of "find these three things", "race these three laps", "jump on these three switches" game design rare has long abused since banjo kazooie, it takes so much of the air out of what is a pretty deeply realized physics sandbox

but fuck it, i'm speeding through the busy work enjoying this goofy game that i never knew i actually loved

The original fat PS3s have to be the easiest consoles ever to mod; it's all software and really straightforward. If you're not careful, though, you can get the console blacklisted from PSN, and while you can still use most streaming apps, keeping them up to date (do they still update PS3 apps?) might be more than your family can manage.

I guess some of the later slims are more or less limited to piracy, though.


oh wow ty! good info

It's out for PS and Switch now, feels like I should buy the Switch version although that might just be Hades muscle memory.


Oh! I wanna play this - I saw some footage and it reminded me of Hyper Light Drifter as well as Hades.


I was following this for a long time on Steam but ultimately decided against it when I heard it's only 9 hours long

Would appreciate some actual feedback also though if anybody took the leap


I mean, it's $27 Canadian for the PS5 version. Probably worth 9 hours.

well i replaced the level 80 support weapon i was using for ganyu with her level 90 BiS 4* and she does nearly double her damage. i guess good stats do matter a lot. she's truly busted.

i was using stringless to give to my venti but i managed to pull 5* elegy en route to homa so now i guess it's just wasted

the only constellations left i care about are bennett xingqiu and diona, and unfortunately it seems bennett is on the albedo/eula banner which i have no desire to roll on

working on trying to r5 the catch and get that up and running and still no idea why im playing this game. im basically out of all stocked up resin and am now back to the cant-play-more-than-10-minutes-a-day-grind

the best constellation for bennett is just c1 tbh, and you don't even want to unlock his c6 even if you get it

here's some bookmarked resources in case u dont have them:
team comps
builds

i think i have a lot of rosaria as well, maybe even c6, and truthfully she's a good enough unit but she's just not in any team comps so i'm not buildingher

i don't even have 8 workable units to do floor 12 and i'm trying desperately to get my raiden up to like 60 or 70 with talents unlocked in the next 7 days. my zhongli and hutao are literally on the bench at level 1, so im not really interested in building anything more up.

yeah i dont have anywhere to put her since my diona's pretty built up. i think once i get eula ill 36 star abyss, been farming for her the last few days. should have r5 catch once maintenance is done. its all coming together. i think i'll just work on getting everyone from talent lvl 8 to 9 then crown bennet or something, or wait for kazuha...or build up some people on the bench. i still have 50 fragile resin at ar 53 so it should be quick

i think ganyu is leaked to be the rerun in 2.4 in case that influences your decision of rolling, but i also do think you should prioritize whatever you find fun first and foremost, and that ganyu might be a tad overrated

the only things im left interested in rolling far is just kazuha, maybe ganyu c1 or raiden c2, and mistsplitter or jadecutter if they're ever on a decent banner, and that's pretty much it until the next good support or archon. maybe childe or ayaka or xiao if i get super bored.

although i wouldn't have gotten anywhere as underleveled as i am without ganyu. but every time the game throws a cryo enemy at me i just have to go 'lol guess i'll skip this'

i think the homa banner was pretty lit but i exited well before 240 pulls so who the fuck knows, but i got elegy+homa in about ~120, and a decent handful of 4*s including wavebreaker fins and sacrificial swords

zhongli just uses 3* black tassel if you ever get him, and between raiden/xl/hutau if you have her, you get one r5 catch and need 1-2 more which i guess you'll have to make to do with a billet weapon (or deathmatch if you buy the bp)

The modded one eventually got PSN blacklisted, but it had started taking our discs and then refusing to give them back, so it wasn't a big loss.

It's a real bummer to finish an event in Forza 5 from the festival playlist and not have it register. Think i'm done with this game until they drop a big bug fix update

I think Chrono Cross is one of the prettiest looking and sounding games ever made and I also hate it
The million character gimmick just sucks and even like the main character that isn't mute spends half the game out of the party or unconscious??? And it shouldn't have had any connection to Trigger at all, if they just decided to do a Parallel World thing instead of Time Travel and the series just was a different game with a new gimmick like FF
Also it needs the speed up button more than any old jrpg ever the combat is painfully slow

Also I can't wait to buy this remake/remaster
Ugh

I might also be angry 20 years later over never being able to get the song right during the final boss because it would never not interrupt the combo so I had to look up the true ending on YouTube 10 years later

Make sure you’re using the right car type/class. The only ones that have been outright broken are some of the dailies (expedition one is straight borked) and sometimes when they ask for a clean lap you actually have to crash.

Yeah I’ve seen those mentioned elsewhere, but even simple shit like “buy a car from the auction house” gets me nothing.
