                The whole romance update was added a bit later in the game's lifetime. So they probably changed their mind.

              Stop playing dumb. It's pretty obvious that when the player makes the "right" choice that the writer approves of, they get rewarded. But if they make the "wrong" choice, they get punished.

              That's not an uncommon thing in games believe it or not. Pick the wrong one, get the bad end. Using conditioning tactics that don't specifically involve the character being rejected either

                How are those different, really? Games that include romance options, it's always obvious that the writers usually have a clear favorite that they want to coerce the player into picking, even if other pairings are possible they'll still want to force a "canon" one any way they can.

Last I checked I don't have a writer deciding my every fricking action. That man decides what goes and what doesn't, what's allowed and what's not.

                I refuse to believe anyone is this moronic. Yes, marking something as a romance option in a game and then making it impossible later is directly spiteful. You can maybe call it at best an intentional subversion of videogame dating, but since it was specifically done for one character it suggests malice on the part of the devs.

                Anyway, Hades has totally killed Supergiant for me, for many reasons besides that. I'm going to replay Pyre and pretend things never got this bad.

                Yes, the writers write the narrative, and you read the narrative. That is how stories work.
                Maybe make you own game or fanfic where zag can frick dusa all night.

                It's understandable to be disappointed when the plot doesn't follow the path you had hoped it would. Plenty of stories out there with shit endings.
                What's weird is that this entire topic is some side content completely irrelevant to the core gameplay and narrative, yet you seem to feel that it's the only thing that matters to your enjoyment of the whole package.

                If you can't enjoy anything that deviates even slightly from your expectations, then there isn't going to be much content out there more than 10 minutes long that you'll actually be able to enjoy.

I got shot down by demon lady, felt sad, grounded training enough to realize best girl was in my orb all along. Other than that I don’t believe there’s any male option but I could be wrong.

                Kek yeah, there’s actually a few potential romances in the game that you can influence if you count the Wild girl and the boy, Hedwyn and his lost love, etc etc.
                Kind of funny that you can play matchmaker for the homies.

      your not buing it because of black girls

      Dusa was best girl and was obviously into Zagreus but they wrote a very awkward and abrupt reason why they couldn't be romantic.
      I would have forgiven it if she focused more on the "I don't have a body so we aren't compatible" part but they focused on the just not that into you thing.

It's not even a culture war thing for me, I just honestly think that devs who hate their fans like that are tremendous homosexuals who had their pride wounded because people didn't like the CORRECT thing about their work.

      Dusa was the only non-toxic character in Hades 1, actually likes you, appreciates you and isn't trying to cuck you and tell you that you aren't good enough for her
      She has the hardest to achieve route in the game.
      After you finish her route, she lectures you and says that she just views you as a friend and to stop being around her, it makes her feel weird

      A bunch of things are intentionally overtuned in EA, the devs have outright said so. The Strife debuff (and secret hidden health buff enemies get if you're too far too fast too), the low impact of a lot of upgrades, the Chronos fight in general, they're all currently tuned to pad out the Early Access content.

        While knowing this now makes me less bothered I'm really hoping they tune up more of how (You) control and the nature of enemy attacks. Seems like the latter lingers in some places and manifest from nothingness in others.
        Also could be a while since I last played 1, but did attacks land back-to-back with no break inbetween?

              I'm fricking insulted by a writer trying to preach and dictate what we should or shouldn't fricking like.

                Not really getting turned down, it's more like a third party barging in to decide what you should or shouldn't be attracted to. Like the government disallowing gay marriage.

                Yes, therefore there is no "rejection". It's all a matter of the writer telling the player what option is the "correct" one and what option is the "wrong" one.

                The option the writer likes has nothing but success, while the option the writer dislikes fails.

                Please, stop playing dumb.

                It is entirely about the writer dictating which tastes and preferences are right or wrong

        Yeah but in those games that's because you messed up a dialogue option or picked a wrong action. A route itself just fundamentally being "the bad end" is completely different.

        Dusa interaction doesnt have any romance choices like Meg and Than had. Her dialogue is the exact same sort of stuff you get from other characters that take gifts. The only difference is that she actively rejects Zag as romantic partner (and even offers to give back all the gifts Zag gave her)

        Still a weird choice. Like theming going out of they way to say it is odd. If it's just like any other character that takes gift why even bother adding lines that directly state she's not interested.

              hades 2 is more interesting the more you've played hades 1 because of how it changes the gameplay, hades 1 is the more obvious way to make this kind of game and hades 2 gameplay is entirely informed by how that played out

    So, how likely is it that we're not Melinoe, daughter of Hades and the baby from the picture, and instead Chronos's daughter being gaslit?
    It checks out how she's immune to his time BS, gives her command access even without being Hades's kid, and sets her up as the one to defeat him (since the prophecy is how his own offspring will slay him). I highly suspect the twisting symbol at the revive isn't Hades's twisty horn symbol but an infinity eight.

              Original JP version allowed the player to romance ambiguously young characters. English localization changed it to platonic "we'll be friends forever" type of thing. A few different people tried to upload de-censor/original script mods to nexus and gamebanana and they were taken down and banned for "sexualization of underage characters." Just kind of moronic since it's in the original JP version of the game.

This isn't just a matter of mixed signals, she was a textbook shrinking violent trying to make a romantic advance.

            Also a bit hypocritical because if *that* relationship is problematic what are we supposed to think about Than and Meg? Nyx is basically Zag's surrogate mother, making those two sibling-adjacent. It's ok to want Zag to frick either of them?

        Are any of the other weapons any good? Axe seems kinda fun and I like the skull's magic special (the shells mechanic for the main attack is a pain in the ass though). I get rekt when I actually try to use them though

          Skull: Mel is pretty fun for close quarter fights (it's basically a melee weapon with huge splash damage), can't really seem to find a good way to use Medea, haven't done a lot of run with Persephone to comment

      There are higher damage builds out there such as Pan dagger omega special, but it doesn't get much easier than basic staff special spam. You're pretty reliant on that singular double hits hammer though and ideally some special attack speed, otherwise the damage feels weak.
      Axe omega attack builds are pretty comfy, with multiple boons enabling solid damage. My preference is psychic whirlwind so you can dash around while spinning. You can run thanatos aspect for solid crit chance, and aphrodite or apollo boons with ideally demeter's weed killer boon or keen intuition paired with any good mana regen passive. You just drop a cast under you then spin to win, but if you want you can also attack more while spinning.

      I'd say on-hit torch builds are similarly comfy for ranged playstyle, but some anons seem to hate that weapon. It's definitely slower until you ramp the build enough.

          You're gated for 10 runs. Overall difficulty is similar. Final boss is a little harder, and boons are still unbalanced so it can be a bit more learning to get a passable build.

          Underground path is relatively easier than the path in Hades 1, but the final boss is harder than Hades (at least until you learn their moveset, but that goes for every boss I guess)
          Surface path is easier, but it's still incomplete so it probably won't stay that way
          Playing on 15-20 fear feels kinda easier compared to 15-20 heat in Hades 1. Haven't done many runs at 30+ fear but it feels more or less as difficult as in Hades 1

          Since the game is in EA its hard to fully judge, so far the game is around the same difficulty as 1's final build as most who play 2 are returning players who are more are less ready for this game's challenges even if some systems take some getting used to.

      Starts off a little challenging but gets easier as you unlock stuff but the game is ultimately down to how much you know about the mechanics and how to game it to your advantage. Then once you start with unlocking the self imposed content then the game jumps in difficulty by quite the margin.

        builds that change your gameplay, each weapon in hades 1 has one play pattern. I like hades 1 for what it is but you're really doing the same thing in every biome. h2 improves on that a bit unless you're just forcing an op build (with some exceptions, I admit i'm not happy with how the strongest weapons like momus and pan ask you to force a build)

        • 1 week ago
          Anonymous

          That's a fair criticism, but it's difficult to achieve real depth of choice in an action game vs turn based or deck building games.
          As long as you can kill everything without getting hit, you'll win eventually. So it'll always trend towards some builds being stronger in terms of raw numbers and that'll make up the meta.

          Maybe it'd feel more varied if you entered a run naked and get a random weapon forced on you, but would that really make things any more fun?

            yeah it's not something I have a real answer to. i think H2 does a good job with it if you play with any of the melinoe weapons because there are four paths you can end up going down (attack, omega attack, special, omega special) depending on what you're offered.

        Rogue-lite (i.e. runs with progression) specifically I'd have to go with Rogue Legacy. The spells, classes and traits gave enough variety and the castle gave you a meaningful sense of progression with each run. Hades did neither of those.

        because is a good game

        It's a 5/10 at best, It's okay, but calling it good is pushing it. The game probably would have been good if it was a single ~10-15 hour experience, but as it is, it's just okay at best.

          Rogue Legacy is what I'd call a "Catapult game".

          Remember all those old flash games where you'd shoot some thing -> see how far it flies -> get point -> invest the points -> repeat? Like Shoot the Turtle or Burrito Bison.
          RL is exactly like that. It's not like you can actually beat the game with skill, you just roll a character, go as far as you can, get killed by a mandatory statblock, upgrade and do it again. This shit design actually has become a standard for many rouge-lites, where real progress mostly comes from unlocking stats.

            NTA but it's funny to compare Rogue Legacy as something doing the roguelite thing better than Hades, when in Hades the stat ups are just to give a leg up to shitters, they're entirely optional. You can turn off all your mirror upgrades and beat the game just fine, you even get bonus dialogue for doing it. That just proves the other anon is absolute shit at video games and needs "stats go up" pointless grinding to actually beat his games. Absolutely embarrassing.

              Congrats on proving yourself moronic because that was quite literally the opposite of my point.

              My point was that the "progression" in Hades is pointless. If you're going to add a system to your game it should be impactful, and the mirror in hades isn't. I don't know where you got this "Hades too hard, me need make game easier :(" nonsense from, but I guess you need to pull shit out of your ass if you want to defend the bad design decisions of a shit game.

                I don't care as long as they make it a meaningful mechanic with the possibility of interesting decisions.

                I'm just saying don't put it in your game if it's not impactful.

                I'd make the same complaints about the boons. Weapon choice matters more than like 80% of the boons in making your run feel different. You get, I think it was 1 boon per area that was worth caring about.

                I think it's stupid that you progress in Hades by beating the game repeatedly. Beating the game is supposed to be the ultimate goal, not something you do over and over again to unlock additional dialogue options and shit. It feels like the developers never played a traditional roguelike.

                Like when most people beat Nethack they don't go "and now I can play it again!!!". They take a well-deserved break, maybe pick up a different game. Maybe some people will try a run with a harder class or restrictions or something, but the point of that is still seeing if you can win. It's not "oh, I need to run through the game 10 more times in order to finish this character's dialogue tree".

A game that decides whether you win or lose based on RNG is a bad game if "winning" is your only goal. Rougelikes are only popular because they added different elements to it.

The point is there needs to be more than simply beating the game because "beating the game" in a rougelike is fricking boring. Make that goal more unlockable stuff, rpg like progression with more and more gains going into new routes to increase your starting power, story or whatever but it needs something more to be worthwhile.

                If you're going to put <100 hours into it then why does it fricking matter that it's "replayable" or that there's "more to it"? It could just be a linear game (like a trad roguelike, or a regular action RPG).

        Nemesis is the canon romance moron

        I'm maxed on Nemesis as far as EA will allow me and there hasn't been any romantic talk. The two of them talk about sparring and pushing each other to be stronger and how Nemesis has a nasty rebellious streak against Hecate and is only staying there begrudgingly due to a vow to Nyx.

        Nemesis' last conversation for me was her talking about how she's all about people getting their just desserts and that one of the reasons she's kind of tepid on the whole killing Chronos thing is that she feels like the gods might deserve what's happening to them. She remembers that it was kind of a golden age for mankind when Chronos was last in control and that the gods' reign has only led to war and strife due to rampant petty infighting.

    without getting the third move. the third move has a delay (especially bad with the axe), but i dont know how to cancel out of it. like i would expect with the axe if i do
    >attack attack dash attack
    i would get (1, 2, dash, 1) but i get (1, 2, dash, 3). are there any cancels or something im not getting

    Icarus seems to be the most “novel” of the love interests. Nemesis, if she is one, is basically a retreading of Zag and Than’s tension from 1. Moros, our other prospective suitor, seems to be nice and pleasant but with some hang-ups from work (kind of like Meg but without the previous relationship baggage). Icarus has previous history with Mellie, and is the reason her arm is the way it is. Plus it’s only fitting a Goddess of Nightmares be paired with a human who, in life, inspired the mythological byword for someone destroyed by their own unachievable ambitions and dreams (an Icarus Complex).
    They seem to not have included a Dusa analogue, unless Moros has some hang-ups with relationships.

      you'll get used to him fast. but they'll probably improve the tell for his sweep just because he's so early in the game and he's such a noob stomper while presenting no challenge at all later on.

    Melly just isn’t as fun as Zagreus, and somehow going to kick your grandpa’s ass because he’s stolen your house and family isn’t as compelling as Hades 1 having Hades, your c**t father, staring you in the face and calling you a b***h at the start of every one. I want to put Hades’ face into the dirt, I want to prove to him I am more than just a disappointment. But Chronos? It feels impersonal. Just business. There isn’t as much of an emotional aspect to me. I’m not satisfied when I beat Chronos. It’s almost a chore.

      I feel the same and I hope they really lean into him showing up in between zones to shittalk you and to frick with your runs by teleporting to you old levels from Hades 1. I hope he starts using time powers to frick with the player too like randomly rewinding a encounter that was just completed.

      It did feel much better to take down Hades with him basically spitting on the player at the start of every run and then being the last boss. I hope that the stuff the reveal post first Chronos kill is compelling though.

      And I hope that Zagreus becomes a boon category. Or an alternate playable character.

      Hade's very version of well, Hades is close to his myths than most depictions in that while he is a rough guy he just wants to keep the underworld in check, and as long as you don't give him a reason to get pissed off he's more willing to let things slide unlike the other gods.

          To be as fair as we can, the Greeks were terrified of Hades to the point all of his names (including Hades) are titles or pseudonyms, he was forbidden from worship or from having temples constructed, and they didn’t even like to invoke him because they were very afraid of death. The Romans were only a little better and he was only allowed worship as Plutus/Pluton, the God of Wealth. Plus, while he seems a sensible ruler from a modern prospective, by ancient perspectives he was depicted as draconian and harsh.

      Him being a grumpy old man is more inline with how he's depicted in actual mythology. Like compared to his brother he's easily the least evil.

          Wholesome edit. This could've been a perfect romance to point out that two people will find a way to love each other no matter how different they look from each other, but instead, they pussy out because some mid-wit c**t felt "uncomfortable" when it was literally her job. Should've of just fired her dumbass, hired someone else and re-did the scenes.

      Given Hades design philosophy, probably not. They explicitly said that they wanted the gods, if they were actual gods, to be gods of the whole world, not just Greece. Which is why you see something like Asian Hermes.

      Plus lots of them have animal heads.

        Poseidon has a strong on-hit effect with no downside, so he's the strongest for any builds that push a bunch of rapid hits.
        Aphrodite tends to be best for builds with slower, larger hits if you're willing to sit in melee range. Current gameplay mostly favors ranged builds though.

        Slower ranged builds like axe special, staff charged attacks, or skulls have more balanced picks.

        the strongest builds are absolutely builds that abuse poseidon hard not just because it's outrageous dps but because the aoe and crowd control is so strong that it can handle any number of any kind of enemy. the strongest builds are definitely poseidon builds (specifically poseidon with momus) for this reason and you should have an easy time clearing with it.
