    HK would definitely be in the running for me for GOTY, if it wasn't for Breath of the Wild.

    I can't pick a single favorite this year, so I'm just gonna settle with my collective goties, and be done with it.

    Beat the Broken Vessel last night. I am so bad at this game, it took me over an hour of tries. I'm kind of worried that going forward the game will be too tough for a wuss like me. For the vets, how does this fight compare to the ones that come after it?

    Still amazed by this game and how big it is. New areas keep opening up, sometimes going deeper and sometimes just leading back to old areas. And even when I go back through the old areas multiple times, I keep finding new things - some that I just couldn't access before but some that I just never noticed.

    This could be my GOTY! I doubt it would surpass BOTW, but stay tuned.

    There are probably two fights I'd consider harder than it, Soul Master, and the second fight with Hornet. There are a couple three more if (this one's a bigger spoiler than the previous two, so beware) you're going for the true ending.

    The Coliseum of Fools was a blast. Only did the first two trials though. I like how they fake you out a few times to make you think you've won (but you haven't)..

    Deepnest was really frightening, but I loved every minute of it. Queen's Gardens is an awful, curse worthy trip through way too many thorn covered...whatever. But I made it through.

    I've got my nail fully upgraded, and I've cleaned out all the stores that I know of - do I need Geo for anything else?

    I think I'm coming up to the end now, only a few bosses left and I think I've been to every major area. It will be sad day when I actually finish this thing.

    Knightmare King Grimm is hard. That is all.

    Love the unique intro though.


    I think he's probably going to break me.

    EDIT: Here's a sample video of one attempt where I managed to stagger him at least once:

    *Raises his fists and shouts at the sky*

    I HAVE DONE IT!

    THE RADIANCE IS NO MORE!

    107% COMPLETION.

    RAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWRRRRR!

    And yes, that does include -all- optional bosses (including all trials at the Colosseum of Fools), ghost bosses, dream bosses (including beating White Defender a few times, as well as Grey Prince Zote) and both Grimm and Nightmare King Grimm.

    I also filled my charm inventory, got two unbreakable versions of fragile charms, all notches, all mask and soul vessel shards, all dream essence, the White Palace with Path of Pain, all Hunter Journal entries, etc, etc, etc...


    I'll say it again:

    RAAAAAAAAWWWWWWRRRRRR!




    Seriously, Team Cherry, you fucking kicked ass, but BOY....what a HUGE adventure for such tiny bugs (43 hours or so of total play time...eeep).

    I'd say so.

    Also, congrats to MrDuck. I had to duck out on the Nightmare King Grimm fight eventually.

    NKG was challenging, for sure, and I died several times, but he was no worse than other bosses I've faced from games old and new. The bosses in Bloodborne's DLC, The Old Hunters, come to mind. Save for Lady Maria and The Living Failures, the other three took me more than 50 tries...each. But I beat them all in the end 'cuz I'm a stubborn bugger.

    Wooooo!

    TR was also challenging, but I died far less than with NKG.

    I finished the game before most (or possibly any) of the DLC came out, and once it was out it had been too long since I played it. I'm thinking that now that Hollow Knight is complete, I may have to replay the entire game including DLC. (It's a shame there's no PS4 version, since I would've liked to (re-)play this on a big screen, and I don't think that Hollow Knight is the kind of game I'd want to stream from my PC... I don't think it would improve my survival chances.)

    Well, it just came out on Switch, and it sounds like a flawless port, so there's one option for you.

    MrDuck, I actually ragequit on Bloodborne too, so there's that I'm sure there's a post by me about that somewhere. I did beat The Radiance though.

    Awwww, Zerks... :'(

    It can certainly be unfairly punishing at times, but I still enjoyed the lil'scamp, DLC and all. <3

    Ah, good, good, so you got the true ending then. :3

    And hey, the Radiance does offer a solid challenge, so there you go, bravo, my dude!
