  • 11:03, 1 October 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Backworlds (Created page with "* You don't need to finish each puzzle to finish the game / make progress, if something's not clicking there's nothing stopping you from moving on (after the short and pretty straightforward intro/tutorial) * The story is extremely minimal / light. Don't push through the puzzle gameplay of you're not enjoying it - there is only more puzzle gameplay * The white / colourless puzzles are end-game content * After the introduction there are no hints / instructions (or they...")
  • 11:01, 1 October 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Deathverse: Let It Die (Created page with "* Movement is like LID except there is no stamina to concern yourself with, so you can sprint as long as you want. This also means so can everyone else. There is also a wall jump to reach higher ledges and fall damage does not exist. * Familiarize yourself with your given weapon. The game hands you the machete to start with (which is the most straightforward weapon class of the five currently available at time of writing) and there's a training room with all sub-weapons...")
  • 11:00, 1 October 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga (Created page with "* All units do full damage regardless of what rank they're in, and all units behave the same way on offense no matter where they're positioned in a squad. You can freely put heavy infantry units in the back rank to intercept rogues and assassins without compromising your offense. * Magic units will have decreased efficacy the more times they activate in a single turn. This is why your priestess seems to be healing for less and less and you're getting more nervous as an...")
  • 14:46, 29 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Phantom Doctrine (Created page with "* Outside of missions, lone agents are vulnerable to getting ambushed, so make sure you have your agents travel in teams of two. There are some guaranteed ambushes at a few points as well, so make sure to have all your agents geared up. * You want to spread your teams around the map as much as possible so you can respond to suspicious activities fast enough to interrupt enemy ops or perform tactical recon. * Carrying agents, whether friendly or hostile, pauses their bl...")
  • 15:42, 28 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Sonic Adventure 2 (Created page with "== General Advice == * Always interact with the Omochao robot by touching him (NOT grabbing him), although a lot of times he gives superfluous explanations, there are moments where he'll give extremely important information so always interact at least once when you see one. * The game's content is heavily tied to score ranking and replayability, even if you're not into 100%ing games, it is highly recommended that you at least try to replay the first missions of the sta...")
  • 09:50, 26 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page PlateUp! (Created page with "* To get a dishwasher, you first need a Research Desk. Research the sink to get a Wash Basin (no other sink will work) and research the wash basin to get a Dishwasher. However the dishwasher is pricey and may not be as much of a benefit as other sinks in every circumstance. Category:Games")
  • 13:01, 25 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Return to Monkey Island (Created page with "* As usual in Monkey Island games, you can't die* or put yourself in a position where you can't complete the game. Experiment with items and dialogue to your heart's content. * Unlike earlier installments, sometimes you'll have to repeat the same action a few times to actually solve a puzzle. * There's no penalty or loss of achievements for using the hint system (once it appears) * Double click to run. Category:Games")
  • 11:22, 22 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Guild Wars (Created page with "* The only fully missable title in the game is Legendary Defender of Ascalon, which you get for reaching max level 20 before moving onto the main game with a Prophecies character. The cutoff point is a quest from Sir Tydus after acquiring your secondary profession that takes you out of the tutorial area. The game will ask for confirmation that you are ready. * When you first unlock a skill it is permanently unlocked for the account. It can then be used for any PVP only...")
  • 12:19, 19 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Crusader Kings III (Created page with "* The tutorial is mandatory if you want to know what's going on. * As a beginner it's best to pick a ruler/nation that starts off with a lot of resources. * The lifestyle choice you make at the beginning is basically your character class. How you perform in some situations depends on your lifestyle etc. * You can make up whatever shortcomings your character has with the right council members. * Some of the problems with wars can be reduced by investing in your men-at...")
  • 15:13, 15 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis (Created page with "* Once you get the opportunity to get skill points from the places that give you them upon the first clear, they're account-wide rather than per character, so if you make another character, you can get a head start. * In a similar vein, sometime if you accept a side task and you've already fulfilled the objective as your current character, the NPC will go "oh, okay then" as you auto-complete it. For example, when one NPC tells you to check out some training area that yo...")
  • 17:55, 14 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Disney Dreamlight Valley (Created page with "* The recipe autofill will pick which fish/vegetable/etc to use with no regard for what you want to keep. Also, seaweed is a vegetable that you will need a lot of. * Crafting stations can use items that are stored in chests. Category:Games")
  • 19:21, 9 September 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Wildermyth (Created page with "* I try to build a main party of 2 warriors, 2 rogues, and a mystic as soon as I can. But 2 mystics, 1 rogue may or may not be more optimal. * Your mystics are vital for setting up flanking strikes - interfuse with an object behind an enemy, and even if you whiff hitting with it, attacks from your advancing melee units become guaranteed hits. Their crowd control can also be a lifesaver. * Rogues are best when stealthed, as when in stealth they ignore armor, so a rogu...")
  • 10:02, 21 August 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page The Ascent (Created page with "* I personally recommend investing in one color type of stats, while splashing some points into health and energy as you feel you need them. Try to compliment the stat color you invest in with the same color active powers, as those powers get bonuses the more points you have in that stat color category. * The early game weapons are all pretty basic but you start getting some fun stuff mid-game. Don't be afraid to do a little upgrading to early weapons you find comfy bu...")
  • 19:38, 15 August 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Cult of the Lamb (Created page with "== Cult == * Plants seem to always return their seeds after harvest so don't be afraid to plant a big farm. Also, get a farm going. * Throwing up as a side effect of a meal is not bad so long as you are there to clean up. Pooping is a bonus for harvests. The food side effect you have to watch out for is sickness, since it takes pawns out of commission. * Cultists will eventually get old and die, so its good to have ways to make them still useful once they get feeble a...")
  • 19:36, 15 August 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Earth Defense Force 5 (Created page with "* Fencer melee weapons are actually surprisingly effective, don't be scared off trying them as both the tankiest class and 2nd most mobile. The shields are also very effective and most are capable of "reloading" once their charges depleted which isn't super obvious. * It's not totally necessary but highly recommend having at least one Fencer or Wing Diver in play to collect armor and weapon boxes in any given mission. * Don't let Ranger and Air Raider early weapons thr...")
  • 07:45, 10 August 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes (Created page with "* Resetting your level back to 1 seems a very "why would I do that?" option, but it does play into stat growth as far as I can tell. More advanced classes have better growth than the base ones, so you can gain more in the long run by resetting after trading up (provided you can be bothered to re-level or have the gold to pay for the levels). It also can give you an edge if you want to respec someone from physical to magical classes or vice versa by letting them gain more...")
  • 08:25, 6 August 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Dinkum (Created page with "''These tips apply to the Early Access release.'' * The world is randomly generated, so your map will be different than everyone else's, however the biomes will be in generally the same locations. * The yellow flowers you will see right when you start are an excellent way to get early cash from John so you can purchase tools. * You can cook fruit and meat on campfires and improve the health/energy it refills. * Digging will hold the dirt on your shovel. If you want t...")
  • 15:36, 30 July 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (Created page with "* The game is generally good at explaining systems/concepts, and stores all of its tutorials in the tips menu. * At a certain point a few hours into the game, you meet a trader and the game tells you it will auto-sell any sell-only loot from then on. In case it's not clear, this happens at the end of every fight, not only when you speak to a trader. You'll see, after a fight, that some loot automatically flies towards your character and you're told how much money it was...")
  • 09:46, 11 July 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Neon White (Created page with "* You'll want to spend time thinking about each level's routing to get the Ace ranking. If there's a notably open area or sightline to an enemy in a level, it was almost certainly put there for a reason. Similarly, long platforming segments without any enemies probably have some method of skipping most or all of them. * Every stage has a secret ranking above Ace for beating the developer time. * Destroying enemy projectiles will give you a small speed boost. * You can...")
  • 09:08, 28 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs moved page Ultima Underworld 2: Labyrinth of Worlds to Ultima Underworld II: Labyrinth of Worlds
  • 09:08, 28 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Ultima Underworld 2: Labyrinth of Worlds (Created page with "There's no hand-holding. No quest journal, no arrows pointing the way. If you're not playing with a hint book by your side, you'll need to really think. It's pretty hard. Easy difficulty is for the average guy, normal is for grognards. There's no level scaling. You will bump into monsters you can't beat at that time. For example, right inside the entrance to the sewers is a headless. it will murderize you at normal difficulty, and is very tough even at easy. Avoid it and...")
  • 11:21, 21 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Generation Zero (Created page with "* Schematics are the name of the game, most of which can be found at various locations, but some will be in un-labeled places (like in the back of a police car). There's a lot of them and if there's something specific you're looking for then you probably want to look at this map: http://mathartbang.com/deca/gz/map.html. Note that as of this post the HEDP rounds for the recoilless rifle is currently bugged and unobtainable. * Weapons and (most) attachments will have a 1-...")
  • 09:12, 18 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Ghostwire: Tokyo (Created page with "* Trader Nekomata have quite a few features that are never described. They are fast travel points, and their map icons will show a checkmark if you have an item they want. Also, talking to them opens up the trading menu, but each one also has their own shop through which they sell music, photo poses, clothes, and either KK Notes or Magatama for a premium. * Don't ignore dogs and cats. If you pet a dog they will follow you around for a while and bark if there are Visitor...")
  • 20:11, 16 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Resident Evil 8 (Redirected page to Resident Evil Village) Tag: New redirect
  • 17:36, 13 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Killer7 (Created page with "* There are two kinds of blood, Thin and Thick. Thin is used for healing and abilities and you get some every time you damage/kill an enemy, Thick is experience points and you only get it when you kill an enemy via weakpoint. * There is a limit to how much Thick Blood you can get in each stage. The blood machine will jam and close up for the rest of the level when this happens. Speed, Waiver, and Critical are the best things to focus on first. * Once unlocked, you perf...")
  • 18:50, 5 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Created page with "* If you want to focus on upgrades, the core upgrade tree (the top non-hero-specific one) is generally the most impactful, and it's worth saving up for the "cheats" that multiply the value of studs early on. The latter are multiplicative so getting the first two (2x stud value and 4x stud value) gives you 8x stud value, the third one is 6x stud value giving you 48x, and it goes from there. * Don't stress about clearing the map of collectibles etc on your first run throu...")
  • 18:47, 5 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Rogue Legacy 2 (Created page with "* Iron is going to be little bit of a bottleneck, so anything that improves iron gathering will help you to get better equipment faster. But don’t stress it too much, as without weight improvements, you may not have the capacity to wear the best found blueprints. * Consider spreading the points around the manor at first, as there are multiple classes that have to be unlocked by buying a room in the manor first. I don’t think any of them are particularly OP, but som...")
  • 18:45, 5 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters (Created page with "* There is no %tohit. Ranged weapons hit for 100% damage, half if your target is in half cover, and 0 in case of full cover. There is also damage dropoff from 50% range. When you move, you can see your LoS and damage that you will do at your destination to every enemy in range. * Melee is more powerful than range, but you need a way to get close. * Overwatch will get your guys out of cover as they aim. * You get full Action Points when entering combat, and also when k...")
  • 18:43, 5 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries (Created page with "* Get some mods, the game has some issues that can be easily fixed for a massively improved experience. * Turn on some level of aim assist. It's very difficult to aim while moving and managing your torso and leg positioning, and even the low setting with help a lot with keeping you on target, especially with lasers. * Positioning is incredibly important in fights; you can't just slug it out until you get into heavy and assaults, and even then it's dangerous. * Present...")
  • 18:41, 5 June 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong (Created page with "* Don't press the RESTART button in the menu unless you want to start from the very beginning of the game. * If you screw up a feeding session, e.g., don't press F, accidentally tap F, get a phone call while pressing F, etc. Immediately press ESC and return to main menu to undo the action. Category:Games")
  • 15:16, 9 May 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin (Created page with "* If a main mission or side mission on the map says its level is a little or even much higher than your equipment level, start it anyway. Basic enemies will drop gear at the higher level immediately. * Attacks that knock enemies in the air are extremely useful. * Basic jobs are unlocked when you find the relevant weapon. Advanced and Expert jobs are gained when you unlock the relevant skill(s) at the bottom of other job trees. * You might want to use shards to work to...")
  • 20:56, 8 May 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Citizen Sleeper (Created page with "* You have 3 resources on the top of your screen. * The first is 'Flickering'. That's a measure of how damaged your android body is. Don't let it go to zero. * Under flickering you have 5 dice. The amount of flickering determines how many dice you get. At under 80% flickering you only have 4 dice. * Dice are used to take some actions in the game. So if you want to work a job you spend a die. Broadly speaking the higher rolled dice will give you better outputs on jobs....")
  • 16:27, 1 May 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page The Planet Crafter (Created page with "* Exploring is important. * Looting containers is the only source of food in the early game. * For properly exploring wrecks you need the torch and deconstruction mods. * When exploring, carry enough resources to be able to build shelter to replenish oxygen (3 iron, 2 titanium, 1 silicon). * Electricity doesn’t have a maximum range so you can build anywhere. * Deconstructing always returns full resources, so don’t hold back on experimenting. * Later in the game...")
  • 18:32, 29 April 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Severed (Created page with "* The game's map does a great job of filling in points of interest as you go along (switches, health pickups etc.). Don't be intimidated by the number of secrets in the game, they'll be clearly marked on your map and none of the puzzles are particularly difficult. * Don't bother backtracking to clean up collectibles after finishing an area unless you're really struggling with the game's combat. It's pretty tedious to do multiple times and there's a very obvious point wh...")
  • 07:51, 21 April 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Triangle Strategy (Created page with "== Characters == * Anna's ability to act twice in a turn makes her a very valuable party member throughout. * Hughette is hugely mobile and particularly good at sniping people from high places. * Benedict's buffs are decent but he truly shines with his later abilities that let people act more often. == Strategy == * Flank enemies wherever you can to get followup attacks. If you can flank them from front and behind, it's a decent bonus. If Anna can get behind an enem...")
  • 09:28, 6 April 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Created page with "* You can continue playing after the credits and there is post game content. * You can retry from the start menu in special stages. If you want to restart a normal stage then you have to leave and re-enter. * The death penalty is losing 100 Star Coins. This doesn't apply in special stages where you just restart. * Mouthful mode has replaced a few of the standard copy abilities, Wheel has become Mouthful Car for instance. * Rangers and Hammers attack can be charged up...")
  • 09:27, 6 April 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Nightmare Reaper (Created page with "* If you hear wind, it means there is a secret or passage very close by. * In the passages you enter through manhole covers, there can occasionally be multiple manhole covers to exit from. They are far less obvious than doors, so keep an eye out if it seems you've explored the whole map and have nowhere left to go. * You can disable the minigames individually if there's one (or more) you don't want to play. It lets you just buy the upgrades without playing the associat...")
  • 19:49, 1 April 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Far Cry 6 (Created page with "* When you upgrade parts of your gun, that upgrade is permanently interchangeable with all other guns of that class -- i.e. if you buy armor piercing rounds for one pistol, you can then use armor piercing rounds on any other pistol you own. So go ahead and get the best silencer for that sniper rifle you find an hour into the game, you can just put it onto the next, better, sniper rifle you find. * You can't upgrade unique weapons, or swap their parts out to your other g...")
  • 13:24, 30 March 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Fury Unleashed (Created page with "* Feel free to start on easy if you're not familiar with the mechanics but if you have played games like Neon Abyss, Hades or Enter the Gungeon, it should be second nature barring any button remapping. * Focus unlocking and upgrading skills that involve the Combo Meter and Ink Gain. The meta progression revolves around gathering Black Ink from defeated enemies and the Combo Meter will increase the amount of ink you earn as you increase the combo. * Combo Shields are yo...")
  • 10:31, 29 March 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin (Created page with "* The first rice crops will be very low, this is mostly story based, and wild grains like foxtail and wheat are going to be essential to getting healing buffs * Early on, white rice is far better as stat gains are exponential. Brown rice gives much higher temporary stat bonuses and is better late game. * Story progression gates a lot of upgrades and improvements to the rice farming * A simple method for 'good' rice is to keep the water at 20% until the third offshoot,...")
  • 19:18, 25 March 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page ISLANDERS (Created page with "* Taking the seaweed pack as your first choice is a trap, it's very difficult to reach the first point milestone using them. * Hops fields can be placed on sand. * Seaweed fields should be placed in between two sections of land if at all possible. This lets you overlap multiple farms without suffering a penalty. * Build your houses and mansions in different directions off the City Center, it'll be easier to account for buildings that gain penalties from one or the oth...")
  • 12:52, 20 March 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page TUNIC (Created page with "* There's only one puzzle in the game that requires translating the in game language, and it's not required to finish the game. If you don't understand something, just explore somewhere else until you find a page explaining what's up. Category:Games")
  • 20:07, 11 March 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Crown Trick (Created page with "* Secret walls exist, reveal them by hitting them from 1 square away (even if your range is longer). Once you know they're a thing that exist, they're easy-ish to pick out from their surroundings. * If a skill says it targets "enemies" in an area, it will not directly hit you if you're in the area of effect. If it says anything else, you're fair game, and spells that do a splash after they hit an enemy can still splash to you regardless (or drop a ground effect under yo...")
  • 18:33, 1 March 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Forza Horizon 5 (Created page with "* At the start fast travel is only available to festival sites and houses. If you highlight a location on the map, you'll know if you can fast travel there because the option to fast travel will be shown at the bottom of the screen. This is hard to spot at first. * If you buy the Buenas Vistas property you can fast travel to any road on the map. You might need to complete a certain mission before you can buy this house, and it costs 2,000,000 credits. * It's best to un...")
  • 09:51, 27 February 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Horizon Forbidden West (Created page with "* Some items will appear on the resources tab as junk, but they can actually be used for some lategame upgrade recipes. Hold onto Apex Hearts, Metal Blocks, and Pristine Skulls. Ancient junk and ingots can safely be sold for shards. * If you want to upgrade something, just create a job for it whenever you're at a workbench and it'll automatically show you where to find the nearest components that you need. * A few areas will be inaccessible to you at first and will onl...")
  • 19:39, 25 February 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Elden Ring (Created page with "* Head in the direction the game points you to find the first merchant. Buy the torch and crafting kit asap, get the telescope later * Your mount unlocks after a certain amount of time and will occur during a rest scene at a bonfire * Return to the first merchant after getting the mount to meet a new NPC * The Gatefront ruins have a essential weapons crafting tool * Stealth is extremely useful to instant kill wandering enemies * Pick up all gestures some are used fo...")
  • 17:28, 12 February 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Strange Horticulture (Created page with "* The drawings are generally very accurate, things like petal counts and leaf features are represented 1:1. * The failure state returns you to the beginning of the day but doesn't remove any labels you've put on plants. * When you're given a choice of which plant to give someone, there is no wrong answer. It'll just affect which ending you get. * There are no missable plant identifications, there's an epilogue designed solely to let you finish that aspect. * Some map...")
  • 18:54, 6 February 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Tangledeep (Created page with "* Pets are extremely powerful and worth investing in because they persist between runs. They're easy to ignore/neglect but doing so would be a big mistake. Category:Games")
  • 08:35, 31 January 2022 Ahobday talk contribs created page Nobody Saves the World (Created page with "* You cannot max out all the forms until you finish the first three story dungeons (ones that give you gems/the big bad talks to you in). This doesn't mean don't do their quests, but just be aware the game won't give you what you need to improve them until then. * Necromancer is by far the best form * If you're going to try and maximize leveling, make sure you rank up the skill Bravado (knight class), familiar (magician), buff up (weightlifter), and gallop (horse).

That is level 8 for any of the primary menaces, varying for others. Having said that, having a higher level of menace...")
