Mathias told me about Gorefist, the first boss that he couldn't beat. I reached his lair in the dungeon today, and I see the problem. He killed me once, and then I went back and upgraded my armor and weapons. The Weapon Mods are really powerful, both Mender's Aura (healing) and Hunter's Mark (mark enemies, more critical hits). Going back in, he killed me 5 more times. I decided to go back into the dungeon and grind a bit more on the easy Hollows.
The second game I tried on my shiny new PS4 Pro. Running this seems indistinguishable from running it on the standard PS4.
I wanted to show Erik this game, and I managed to make a 'LAN party' by connecting both of the machines to the internet, Erik playing on my PS4 Pro, and me starting a new character on my old PS4. We ended up playing this game all day. It's is much easier in coop, and we played through the early area and fought the dragon-like boss, Singe.
Another LAN-party with Erik, we went down to the basement of Ward 13 and found a neat submachinegun. When then went back to The Loom of the Black Sun (alien dungeon) and fought Claviger (a big tree thing).
Remnant was just updated with a new Hardcore Mode and hopefully a lot of bugfixes. Even though it seemed even harder than before, Erik and I managed to get through the Re-animator boss fight by focusing on killing the teleporting enemies and leaving the rest alive, easy to kite around the level.
The next boss, Onslaught, was easy and very buggy. He teleported into a wall and got stuck, and he teleported outside the level, forcing us to drink poison and respawn. Finally, he just seemed to be stuck in one place, and we killed him.
We entered what was clearly a boss arena, but with 5 bells with the same pitches as an earlier music puzzle. I managed to play the song of that puzzle, which did nothing. It turned out later that the puzzle was optional, and the boss was actually present and visible in the level. After informing Erik, he ran around for a while, looking for the boss, and we ended up standing next to the big dog monster before Erik finally discovered it. The actual boss fight was very easy.
completed the game.
The second stage of the boss was confusing, we didn't deal any damage to him. It turned out that you have to get caught by the boss, teleported into a dream reality, kill a few enemies there, get out, and then attack the boss, now dealing lots of damage. After a while, the boss opens up, and you can hit The Dreamer inside. We got him, and then sailed away in a little boat, watching a tower fall down in the background.
