I love that you can see when a report was created! Can reports be sorted by the time they were reported, like oldest to newest (or vice versa)? Or sort by community?

I was wondering if that might be the case. Hopefully future Lemmy updates will allow for this.

Just beat Lies of P and I love it!

My first soulsborne game was Bloodborne and is still my favorite of the FromSoft series with Elden Ring just behind it. Playing Lies of P has seriously reminded me of when I first played Bloodborne and so it probably gets special bonus points just for that. Now I just have to wait until Friday for Lords of the Fallen!

I felt the same way when Dark Souls (and subsequent sequels) came out. Sekiro was the first game I had ever refunded on Steam when I rage quit it after couldn’t get through the tutorial level. I’ve since tried it again and made it to Genichiro but couldn’t beat him as it doesn’t let you grind to level up. It’s truly a game where you have to “git gud” and I’m simply not that good at parrying.

Honestly the only reason I gave Bloodborne a try was because I saw someone else play who was a much worse gamer than I was, it was included on PS+, and I thought the world seemed really interesting. I absolutely do not think this genre is for everyone but when you can beat a boss, the rush is intense and addictive.

Watched FightinCowboy play the initial intro chapter and it looks pretty standard.

There are rarely any reports so it would mainly be to help post pictures and interact with other users on here.

Awww. Looks like a good boi even if he likes to lay in poo.

Xylinna OP ,
@Xylinna@lemmy.world avatar

I’ve only gotten past the first major boss but I never felt like it was too difficult or too easy. A lot of the souls like games seems to struggle with the right balance of difficulty and just don’t seem to “get it”. The combat feels good, hits feel solid and I don’t feel like I’m getting screwed over. I’m really liking the game so far, the enemies and environmental storytelling are definitely souls inspired. Also, screw the chimney sweeps.

I almost bought the deluxe edition on Steam but didn’t (being cheap I guess).

Xylinna OP ,
@Xylinna@lemmy.world avatar

I was also hoping for better dodging as I am terrible at parrying. I struggled with Sekiro because it’s so reliant on parrying but I did enjoy it up until I got to Genichiro as I was never able to beat him.

Xylinna OP ,
@Xylinna@lemmy.world avatar

It’s currently included with Game Pass plus there is a demo (I think it’s still available) so you can try it without having to buy it. Spending $60+ always gives me pause.

I read the same thing but performance still seems to be solid.

They are both blue heeler mixes. Bender, on the right, is ACD, Doberman, and Beagle according to the DNA test I had done.

Both of my boys were major herders as puppies, such as nipping at feet. Bender (right) would go nuts trying to heard the vacuum cleaner which was hilarious. Fortunately they have both calmed down as they have aged, at least with humans. They still try to heard the cats which is kind of hilarious.

Mods Wanted

The community of aww has grown over the last few months and is need of some additional moderators. There are few reports in aww fortunately so the primary duties involved would be creating content, weekly events/discussions, and interacting with users.

I believe the only 4x games I have played have been the Sid Meier’s games. They weren’t really my usual type of game but I did appreciate the complexity they created with balancing tactics and diplomacy.

You can be banned from lemmy.blahaj.zone for calling out transphobia

I recently made a new account on lemmy.blahaj.zone, because I’ve been harassed and doxxed on my old account and I wanted a fresh start with a more lighthearted online identity that I could be more open about my gender identity on. I’d heard blahaj zone was good for trans people, so I made my account there. And yeah,...

I always struggled with FPS games as they made me a bit nauseous and I would get lost easily. Typically I preferred 3rd person such as Gears of War, Uncharted, Witcher, etc. although I do have gob tons of hours in Destiny 2 and Skyrim so obviously managed to make it work.

Xylinna ,
@Xylinna@lemmy.world avatar

That is really good advice. I don’t seem to have as much problems with newer games so refresh rates probably did help. I will have to pay attention next time I play an FPS to change the FOV.

The Weekly Discussion Topic - Game UIs - 04-08-2023 ( lemmy.world )

It’s time for the second ever weekly discussion topic, everyone! Before we continue, I’d like to thank everyone for all the interesting engagement we got on the last post. I was unsure if anyone would even comment at all, so seeing it be so active was really nice. Anyway, let’s get to it; this week’s discussion topic is...

One thing that frustrates me is when a game doesn’t have a mini map option in the HUD. Obviously there are exceptions such as Elden Ring where it works better to not have one but in general I would prefer it to be an option especially when it is an open world game. I get lost driving in my own neighborhood, there is no way I am going to figure out where to go in a game without one.

Xylinna ,
@Xylinna@lemmy.world avatar

I do like when games have the option to turn off the HUD or at least customize it so you can choose to disable pieces of the HUD.

Xylinna Mod ,
@Xylinna@lemmy.world avatar

I agree with you. I chose Lemmy.World because it was listed as a general instance and the others were very specific and I was still trying to navigate what the Fediverse even was. If Lemmy.World hadn’t been an option I would probably have stuck to Squabbles or Kbin.

The Weekly Discussion Topic - Roguelikes - 28-07-2023 ( lemmy.world )

Hello all, this is the first post in a series of posts I’ll be making weekly to drum up some diverse discussion relating to all different aspects of gaming. I figured I would start with what I know, and so the first topic is thus: roguelike games. (If you think any of the below description is wrong or misleading, let me know -...

I have hundreds of hours in Slay the Spire of both IOS and Steam. Phenomenal game.

I struggled with getting past the first boss in Hades but I loved the art direction, story, and voice acting. I will probably give Hades II a try as I am sure there are a lot of improvements.

I tried Downfall and I like it. Sadly it does not really work on Steam Deck last time I tried.

Currently no app has mod tool support but it is on several devs to do lists.

There are a few browser extensions that you might like and are least worth checking out. Doesn’t quite do what you are looking for but might help some.

    Another option for a front end on PC is alexandrite.app which has different font styles.
