That is one of the 'vision' cutscenes in Assassins Creed Valhalla.

Ah dammit. I thought I had the forum stumped. Chocolate chip cookie coming right up.

What the fuck! "Snotinghamscire"? Is this the kind of thing Monty Python would make fun of?

I've put over a 100 runs into Hades and still loving it, the amount of character lines in the game is unreal. Each run still feels fresh with upping the heat (difficulty) and altering the boons (power ups) you recieve. I haven't really had one run the same as you get that many options. Easily one of my fav games of 2020.


I was looking for another rogue-like and just bought Dead Cells so about to load that up now... looking forward to the 2D style.

I disappeared into that GoT phone game, but I've spent like 5 grand on it and my wife made me quit.

Aye, so I am finding it's hard to put down, first few runs were awful and it didn't take long for me to die but then it just started to sorta click and I made it to the first boss a couple times in a row, didn't beat him though. I keep pressing L1 to block for some reason which is annoying ha.

Beat a Khmer scenario that's got a hard AF start and been generally difficult. Felt good to finally get to that spot where I've got a nicely walled base with a single access point blocked by a castle and a whole bunch of Battle Elephants.

Currently going through the Dracula campaign remake in DE and my favourite scenario (2, the Risk-like one) was left basically untouched, so that's cool. Hopefully my other fave Forgotten scen (Prithviraj 2) wasn't re-tooled too much either.

I've been playing a lot of Trails of Cold Steel II. I'm in Act 1 Pt 3. Just left Bareahard and returned to Ymir.

I've also stumbled across a bit of a hidden gem called Banner of the Maid. I saw a review of it a while back and thought it looked like my kind of thing, being a Fire Emblem fan, but it seems to have gone under the radar since then. I got it on a whim in the Switch eshop sale and absolutely love it. It's a tactical turn-based RPG set during an alternate French Revolution, basically a Fire Emblem game in all but name - but a proper old school Fire Emblem, rather than the disappointment of FE Three Houses. It's available on PS4, XB1 and PC as well, but I think these sorts of games are perfect for a handheld.

You have so much epicness in store. I’m nearing the final stages and will jump straight to Cold Steel 3 when done. This game has been incredible.

3 days off for Old New Year, w00t!

Alternating between 2 custom campaigns, "Tomislav" is about the titular duke who becomes the first Croatian king. Croats aren't an AoK civ, but this modder did a total conversion, replacing Portuguese with a brand spanking new Croat civ, including unique voice lines for units, a cool campaign and a civ bonus of dealing extra damage when hitting enemy uphill, which basically turns the game's tactics on its head.

The other one is "Ottokar" , about the last great Czech monarch. This one is a bit less fancy with the modding, but still impressive, and i'm a fan of the author's previous stuff, so this is totally my jam.

I'm going to play the Crossbell games (Trails from Zero and Trails to Azure) before playing CS3. Everything to do with Crossbell that gets mentioned in Cold Steel happens in Zero and Azure, and then the characters from those games and the Sky trilogy cross over to CS3 and it all ties together, so I want to do it in that order to avoid spoilers.

Making my way through that Croatian campaign... it's a doozy, that's for sure. Made it to Scenario 5, which is a major "Defend The Spot" mission where I gotta use 40 in-game minutes to get an economy going from scratch, which is.. Not easy for someone this used to turtling.

Beat the Bohemian one, "Ottokar" earlier in the week, and it was also very well-made with some interesting gameplay twists in a few of the scenarios. The last one was was pretty anticlimactic, but it was a build-up to the tragic concluding cutscenes, so that made sense.

Once again, really impressive how much modders are capable of with the editor already; hoping the next expansion goes back to South Asia, there's a lot of cool stuff that can be done with more Indian civs.
