Hades How-to-unlock-new-weapons-in-hades_feature

I spotted a fair bit of chatter about this in the What Have You Been playing thread, so I think it's time for a dedicated thread about this one!

I've sunk a few hours into this already and I must say, I'm really impressed by this. I've always enjoyed Supergiant's games, but this is their best effort yet. I was chatting to Andy the other night about the fact that this has solved a lot of issues with roguelites that I never knew I had. Dying in roguelites is usually a very frustrating thing as losing all of your progress is really the only outcome of death. Sure, you'll maybe have got a couple of new unlocks, but that's almost expected with the genre. Hades totally alleviates that frustration as there's almost a bit of excitement at going back home after death and seeing what characters you can chat to and what story beats you'll uncover next. They've really nailed the marriage of storytelling with the roguelite genre.

And of course, it plays a storm as well. Man, even just typing about it has me wanting to fire the Switch up for a run.

As for my progress...

I presume the rest of you will have finished this by now?

I've done 49 escape attempts overall 2 of which I've completed with 2 different weapons, my main goal at the minute is getting runs done with the 4 other weapons along with doing so some story related things.

It's without a doubt my favourite game of this year & that was with me being a bit down on roguelite/likes before it came out.........now that's me off to try another run. Smile

I'm really enjoying how each weapon not only feels different from one another in their base forms, as you'd expect, but also how a run with a weapon can feel totally different from another run with the same weapon depending on what boons you get. I've done two runs with the spear and my first was more focused on dash attacks and getting in close, whereas the latter was long range focused on lobbing the spear and using my Cast. Properly brilliant design, that.

Even though it was only a fiver on PC, I should have paid the extra money and got on Switch as I feel I would have played more of it even on my Lite. As what I have liked a lot even in a genre I'm not hugely keen on.

Buy it again on Switch! I plan to buy again when it goes to PlayStation.

I managed to complete my 10th successful run earlier this week from 27 attempts so I'm gonna focus on a few other games for a bit but I can totally see myself returning to this every now and then for another go.

My current best time is like 40 minutes which I've seen bettered plenty of times over on Twitter so I wanna try and better that, also want to attempt it without any boons whatsoever which I understand gives you some different dialogue.

I might do especially if I get another Switch for MonHan Rise that I may get then.

I wonder if it comes to PlayStation or Xbox or Stadia or Luna or so on as isn't Pyre still a PlayStation Console.

I just think it'd be silly at this stage for them not to port it and the main reason it came to Switch first is how easy it was to port from Steam, well worth putting in the time to put it on other consoles as I'm sure plenty of people are itching to play it.

The cross save patch just came out as well so it's the perfect time to own two copies. Wink

I think my best time is like 31 or 34 minutes though I've botched plenty of possible sub 30 runs, oh also my two escapes are with weapons I've used the least.  Eh?

35 minutes is my fastest time, but my success rate is a lot lower than smurfs.

I've been doing those heat runs now in an attempt to get more diamonds. There's still a lot to do!

So yeah I've bought on Switch in the sale and synced my data.

A had a quick go and the game looks great on the Lite's screen whilst I fail terribly at the first boss.

I got my first clear last night and then immediately went on to get two more clears to make it three in a row. I think this has clicked for me. I'll spoiler my clear builds below to avoid ruining weapons/boons for those that care about that:

Spoiler:
 

I'm interested to dive into some of the run modifiers you unlock after your first clear, but I'd like to try and get a clear with each weapon first before using those. I'm struggling to find any fault with this game. Easy 10/10 so far.

That third clear sounds ridiculous! I have found my best runs usually center around having a Duo, get that early and you're set.

For those that have "borrowed something" during a run:

I reached the credits in this now after chucking a lot of time into this over the last few days. I'm getting clears more often than not now - I think having a third Death Defiance is a game changer. Plus, game knowledge and skill increasing as time goes on is a given too, natch. I still don't feel done as of yet though as I'd like to see some of the side stories play out along with a post game story thread that's interesting me too.

Double post!

----

I've finally got past that bad spell of play that I spoke about earlier in the thread and got 4 victories on the spin. The more progress you make in this game no matter how small or big just makes me love it that bit more, everything seems to have properly clicked for me now and I feel like I can finally.......

Spoiler:
 

75 hours on my play time and the real Hades starts here. Smile Game of forever!

Fired this up again yesterday. Got a 26 minute clear with the sword!

I was pushing to see how fast I could go.

I decided to buy Ty The Tasmanian Tiger HD instead of this. Despite it obviously being the stupid thing to do I stand by my actions.
