Ah, I switched to Stubborn Defiance awhile ago and never thought to switch back! Thank you! That does sound much better.

Oh how frustrating, the first time I beat Meg, I fell into the lava in the next room. Beat her again just now, went alot further and died. Wrongly assumed post Meg would now be my new starting point. Nope, right back at the begining again. I like this game, it drags you in and stuff like this only makes you want to be better..

Sorry for reviving a thread that not many of us seem concerned with (too bad, this is an EXCELLENT game), but I finally beat the last boss! Probably my 25th run or so. Yea, I'm bad, but I'm proud haha

I used the shield, though strangely I didn't really block a whole lot with it. I got the 3 death defiance charges like you guys recommended, and I had the Zeus lightning call, which seemed really strong. I also had my casts powered up, so I tried to keep my distance a lot, firing those off, and only going in close when I was sure he just came out of a pattern.

Tried a run with some heat right after, but died to the minotaur. Seems like the kind of game that will get DLC in the future, so I'll definitely check back with it from time to time.

@rallydefault Congrats. My first win was with the shield too. The game was in early access for ages and they went above and beyond to put all their ideas into the main game I think so I'm not sure if they'll ever decide to go back and add more as DLC in the future but there's already a ton of content regardless. I've put over 100 hours into the game and could easily put in a lot more.

Despite my nagging and complaining, I now played the game for more than 140h. I reached the epilogue and maxed out all the relationships. So I think I'm done with the game for now. But can see myself starting another save file someday in the future. Great game over all with a high level of polish.

It's awesome. I'm so glad I spent... what, 20 bucks? on this thing. Seriously one of best values in gaming I've had in a while. It's not all about "value," though - that makes the game sound cheap. It has a first-party feel of polish to it.

Took the plunge. 20 percent off. Hard to pass, tho it will go on a much deeper discount eventually. I like the developer and this just looks like my kinda game.

@rockodoodle Good decision. Enjoy.

I am not a big fan of supergiant's previous games (on top of my dislike for the roguelike gente) but yesterday I decided to give this one a go as everyone says is awesome.

After a couple of hours of gameplay I can easily say I like it more than bastion and transistor. The battle system is quite fun and the progression feels rewarding in such a way that I did not yet feel like any run was a waste.

So far I got once to the third area and a couple of times more to the second boss and contrary to my first believe I am enjoying the bow a lot

I had Bastion and Transistor both, but never finished them. After 81 runs for Hades and finishing the story, I decided to finish the previous titles. I developed an appreciation for the distinctive SuperGiant talent and saw the roots of Hades in these titles, and just can't wait to get more in Hades, wishing there were some sort of DLC related to the hints of the world building from the weapons and their hidden aspects that open the door for DLC or even a sequel....

@Severian I recommend you to watch Noclip docummentaries on Supergiant's (there is one per each game and an inside one on the making of Hades)

It's hard to put this game down. I just keep playing it.

I "beat" the final boss in my 27th run. Now I can easily get to him again, though not always beat him. Of course, the end isn't really the end in this game. I'm not sure when it's supposed to end. It's one of those indies, like Hollow Knight, that might seem short when you read about them, but actually they're never-ending.

I had my best runs with the bow, but it's a tricky weapon. Now I'm back to the starting sword, which is proving surprisingly effective. Last time I'd used it, I was new to the game so I sucked with it.

Best game I've played in a long time. Sitting at about 105 hours. I've beaten Hades with every weapon now...trying with all aspects.

Still have the final aspects of the shield and fists to unlock. Trying to avoid google or guides. Luckily the game makes that easy by being stupid fun to play over and over.

Trying to escape the broken spear tip for the final fight. Chaos suggested winning with the egg. I barely lost with the shield (trying to run into chaos with it) and the egg so no idea there...probably would have unlocked the final shield aspect.

Lots of unlocking and story left. Confused about redacted 'companion' entries in security logs.

Kinda wish I could play lower heat pacts...seems like I level myself out of using a weapon as much, but that is also why I'm learning all of them.

Yeah, difficult to complain about anything really...this might be one of those rare 10/10 moments.

I will definitely be double dipping on the physical release in whatever collectable form available.

I agree. It's hard to find fault anywhere. The worst you can say is that you may not like the repetition inherent in the genre. But that kind of comes with the territory of being a rogue-like, so...

Even so, Hades plays around with its repetition so that it's not so, well, repetitive. The repetition lulls you into false comfort, when suddenly the game switches up a boss fight or introduces a new enemy type into your 30th run.

Not to mention the entirely unpredictable story beats that come out of nowhere, because the repetition means there's no strict beginning, middle, and end. It's a flow that's suddenly interrupted in shocking ways. I feel like Hades takes advantage of its repetition to actually surprise you. The way it's put together is very, very smart.
