          yeah, chaos thinks zagreus is more interesting than melinoe.
          i don't dislike her and the serious tone fits the story. i just wish the npcs were a bit more interesting. meg was cooler than nemesis, achilles was cooler than odysseus. haven't woken my boy hypnos up yet.
          chronos so far is pretty cool as a villain, and the gimmicks in his boss fight are nice.
          something i dislike about the game so far is the lack of gameplay customization. the weapons in 1 had so much more to offer, but i guess that's because i played hades 1 when development was finished, and i suppose there's more to come yet. the boons are largely less interesting than in 1 so far, but i like hephaistos's boons a lot.
          what's your fav weapon so far? for me, it's the dagger and sickle. especially with the back strike augment and athena's keepsake the damage is crazy

        Game is faster than the first but locked behind tons of grind. Thought same way tbh.
        Weapon upgrades shouldn't need nmare though it makes it a grind to upgrade them all.
        Game grew on me hard. E.g even Zeus I like now after thinking they raped his boons from first game. Poseidon is finally good too

        I'd be fine with that if the casts and specials were good, but regular attacks are just so much better and more consistent but the upgrades for it are very infrequent

          i have no fricking idea of what you guys are on about
          the combat is bad because of the hyper passive cheesy CC witch playstyle yes, but what the frick do you mean omegas are bad? get any decent regeneration and spamming them is all you do. they are far easier to get high damage with than normal attacks
          the whole game is a lot less built around proper hack and slash and instead around CC, AoE and safe pussy play. So omega casts work so much better than the normal slashes which expose you far more for less

                Cast is ridiculously strong just like in Hades 1. Upgrade the tarot card that makes afflicted enemies take bonus 20/25/30% damage and then spam it. I can't say for sure but it also feels like Casts in 2 take fewer frames than the 1st game. Because weaving it into your combos is much smoother.

                Dropping the cast is an afterthought. It's not really build defining aside from a few zeus/apollo setups or aspect of pan daggers.

                If you get Lightning Lance and Storm Ring from Zeus you can basically auto-win the game on that alone, since being able to throw cast from a distance is super broken. I had a run today where I got that, two Chaos boons that upgraded my cast damage by over 50%, plus the Demeter cyclone on sprint and cast, and Air Quality (minimum 30 damage every hit) and it just shredded entire rooms.

                Honestly the biggest issue is that cast-focused builds are just *too* good and your weapon choice barely even matters.

                Cast is broken regardless because it effectively stuns the opponent. I'd think the only advantage is that DOT is going to chip away at bosses while you can stare at them from afar.

      I managed my first clear thanks to omega casts, Zeus and Apollo duo, but it seems really binary how useful they'll be in a run or not, basically getting the auto recharge from Chaos defines if Omega shit will be worthy investing on or not

      Some of the omega moves get better if you get the right boons and whatever the weapon boons are.
      I was running axe with the increased speed + multitasking attack on the charged X and it was pretty damn good.

      Running omega builds on the staff is pretty good too.

      But yeah the weapons are pretty lack luster, but they weren’t amazing in the first game either. IMO it just feels notably worse because the skull and wand are exceptionally shitty to use.
      But the staff, axe, and daggers are pretty decent.

      You can still do some fun noon shenanigans, it just requires more rng this time around.

      I never felt that, there are always plenty of ways to regain mana on offer. I will say that other than the daggers the weapons feel kind of bad. I guess you really need to use the binding circle for kiting with ranged builds, but that completely fails when encountering bosses who are the hardest thing to deal with in the game.

    I think this series is far too homoerotic for my taste, like, for some reason, all the dudes are either baras or frickboys while all the women have these weird manly faces with twink bodies and 0 feminine traits. The gameplay isn't that engaging either, I'd rather try to get into PoE again or something.

      Forgot, dash strikes no longer take priority over M1 weapon chains so the only way to avoid a high commitment attack is to stop attacking.
      In H1 you could either dash strike for a combo reset or piano M1 into a dash to put momentum behind your M1 attack. In H2, you're forced into the latter no matter what.
      Just generally less utility and a lower skill ceiling.

      I find it stupid that they were smart enough to draw the subtle hint to the connection between dionysus and zagreus being the same being, but made the aspect of lucifer a reference to the biblical lucifer, when lucifer is the roman name for phosphorous, and that they're both the god of venus.

    It has that feeling the devs were burnt out on the setting/gameplay after the first game but it was such a success they couldn't leave all that money on the table and not give reddit a sequel. Hopefully it improves a lot during early access but I suspect the original game will stand above because they had passion when they made it.

    [copy paste from other thread]

    I have nearly 300 runs in Hades 1, so here's my 2 cents:

    >fast paced action
    This was mainly due to being able to spam dash. Being limited to one dash makes timing more crucial and makes thee game more skill intensive; spam dash was broken.
    >every weapon was awesome. boons were interesting and changed the game a ton
    Hades 1's balance was a mess, from weapons to Boons, and this was after all the balance patches. They all certainly weren't "awesome". The swords in particular felt like complete shit to play, the spears were entirely hammer dependent, and the fists were generally too weak, for the most part.
    All of Hades 2's weapons have already shown to be more in-depth and have more room for build variety.

    Hades 2's already proven to be far more balanced and refined than Hades 1 ever was, and it's only the first beta.

          The axe is overpowered as hell. The reach on its basic attacks is so huge that if you get boons that make your attack hit in a larger area it's practically a ranged weapon. The base damage is also insanely high on it. Its special can clear a whole room. And this is setting aside Daedalus upgrades which can make it broken.

          By far the axe's best ability though is its omega attack, the spin. I've killed bosses with nothing but that move.

            Have you tried the hammer upgrade that turns your basic attack into just the powered up finisher move? I had a ran with it and stacked the % damage on it. Had crits for like 2.6k+ damage with it. Died to Chronos though.

    Chronos's fight is such bullshit. It's impossible to consistently dodge his attacks with the i-frames of your dash, which means the only viable strategy is to hit and run. In the second phase he summons so much bullshit that it's just a race to see who can kill each other first. Hades in the first game was a good fight and I had fun learning his patterns. Chronos can eat a dick.

              That's not what hit and run means. It's called reacting. Hit and run implies predictive kiting and AI abuse. Waiting out an attack sequence from safety, then going in only during safe windows.
              Dodging moves while staying relatively near melee range is just doing the fight properly. With certain builds like the psychic whirlwind axe, you can even keep attacking while dodging.

              But seriously if you're gonna be a shitter, just play ranged. The game is balanced around ranged. Hades 1 was the melee game.

      The balance of power in Attack, Special, and Cast is kind of fricked right now, from a number of angles.

      >some weapons just have really shitty Special options, but because of the split between normal and Omega versions, you have to work extra hard to make them worthwhile
      >attack buffs also split between normal and omega, except for random god boons that just flat out make them better than other gods like aphrodite
      >very few transformative boons for casts, making the ones that do change something just flat upgrades that you are always seeking, there is absolutely no value in the default state of casts. To compare, Hades 1 and embedding casts vs. something like Demeter crystals or Dionysus fog is not a flat upgrade, there are plenty of ways to make embedding casts viable and not lose in potential to the transforming casts, whereas in Hades 2 if you don't take something like Hestia fireball, zeus lightning bolt, or apollo growing cast when you see it, you're just a goddamn idiot.

      And the state of weapon aspects is absolutely lamentable. I really hope that these are just something that's there for people to acquire because they expect them to be there even in EA, and that basically all of them will be reworked, because I have yet to use one that changes how I play with a particular weapon in any way as significant as 1's aspects.

      Hades is pretty good. Basically you're encouraged to keep dying in order to power yourself up, you get god powers that change up the mechanics and potentially make you OP, and you keep completing runs through hell (hades) to flesh out the story.

      it lends itself really well to your switch or deck since you can pretty much just jump in and out, but it's also a great timekiller. been playing it for about 2 weeks now and it's a good time.

      When she lunges, dodge TOWARDS her so that intimidating wedge of projectiles just fricking clips past you. When she shoots in a circle, go up behind her and pound her silly. When she takes off or puts down circles, slap down a cast right before you flee or wait for everything to go off, sprint to wherever she lands and give her omega attack correction.

      I know Eris looks intimidating and gets harder to fight over time as she buffs her own damage, but I cannot stress enough how defenceless her anus is just because she doesn't have a shield like the satyrs.

        Related to this gripe, mine is that in order to reliably get a Heroic/Epic level boon, I have to give up the fated option-switching cards.

        I'd do 5 more perfect Chronos runs in a row for a cauldron upgrade that just fricking lets me pick the cards I want without some of them being conditional on jumping through certain hoops. And no, I still don't fricking understand how to actually activate the "useable when cards with 1-5 grasp" one, only that I conveniently can while picking a bunch of other cards my loadout requires anyway. And I'd gladly pay the current 30 grasp price over and over just to have enough grasp to take everything with me on runs.

        LET ME BREAK THE GAME DAMN YOU, I SUFFERED ENOUGH AT THE START.

    Love the game, balance sucks though. A good ranged build is actually insane and healing hex is completely broken.

          it is fricking lame. i played way too much of this trash just because i wanted to see unlocks.
          the whole attack/special/throw mechanic is fricking shit. some gods (fricking athena) are way more powerfull then others.
          but the worst offender is the dash. its on a way too small cooldown, so you´re not actually timing it but mashing it like a moron. this gets even worse since they added dash-attacks and dash-attack boons that are very powerfull so you even have a insentive to dash around like a monkey on crack.
          this game made me realize that if you frick up really bad you can make a game feel more tedious by adding too much freedom of movement.

    Reading from these threads, I'm glad I didn't buy it instantly and instead waited. Guess I'll come back to this game in 2025 when it'll probably have received a major overhaul.

    Killed Chronos for the first time. Got carried by healing hex with 5 uses and the hex giving temporal damage boost each time used. Did it with staff and Aphrodite boons. The only big dick damage was Special omega charge so pretty much spammed that and cast

      Yeah, the healing hex isn't busted because it recuperates health even though that's still extremely useful-it's busted because when upgraded it increases your mana too and lets you pop off more omega attacks.

      >Aphrodite boons
      Still find it wild that she's the big dick damage god in this game. Personally I prefer to main Apollo for multi-attacks although I'm warming to Hestia and Demeter for cast buffing.

          In raw percentages maybe, but the Zeus/Poseidon duo/Artemis' upgradeable critbuffs/various other interactions beat her out imo. It's not that she didn't have good damage, it's that it wasn't as scaleable

          I don't *hate* 2 and I still have a ways to go towards finishing but the zones feel noticeably smaller, Oceanus especially. Like you're done in 8 levels or less. Replacing the mirror with Tarot seems worse because the "upgrades" are much less impactful. I can't guarantee myself runs with lots of boons and rerolls like you could in 1. It players slower and a lot of weapons lend themselves to a hit and run style that isn't engaging. The flames is just what the FRICK - I did one run and will never play it again. Awful fricking weapon. The boons just don't seem to do much damage or add anything useful other than Demeter freeze and Aphro damage. Apollo, Hestia, and Daedalus are all useless and Zeus has been downgraded hard. It feels more like a crafting grindathon than anything. It's still fun enough to play but not nearly as good as 1.

          While I'd argue the game overall feels bigger, I completely agree the progression feeling slower and many fights set up for hit and run is a big issue. My current favourite weapon is Charon's axe, because apart from the normal unga bunga axe stuff it can blow up a regular cast that-coupled with another Cast boon like Apollo's-immediately cucks armoured enemies by nuking their protection and blasting them to the edges of their healthbar

            I appreciate you ignoring my typo but I agree. My biggest complaint is you gave to spend more time gathering more resources than in 1 only for the sake of adding things that were already present in 1 albeit cheaper. Like gathering cauldron resources and arcana/psyche resources only to have a worse version of the mirror or the renovator in 1.

            >hephaestus is useless
            A 400-800 burst damage hit that can spread is excellent

            It would be useful if it didn't have a base 20 second cool down or you could guarantee extra poms or seeing Hephaestus again for more boons but the game severely limits your control over if and when you get those perks. If you only get the dash damage or special or something and no spread or poms it's a huge waste of a boon that makes you play more hit and run which is less fun.

            I guess my main gripe is the game forces you to play a slow and dodgy style as the default and while with a god run of better boons and poms you *can* improve and change it, the game also makes it much harder to achieve the right hammers and upgrades as you go. Hades 1 had a wider variety of gameplay options with better boons, weapons, and mirror upgrades to ensure you had a good shot at the duos or whatever you needed. 2 is worse starting out and makes it much harder to change that style into something fun.

Never have I seen a game dev not understand why people liked the original as strongly as Subnautica.

      Forgot to mention: is it just me, or does Chronos fight heavily favor ranged builds? The wide sweeping attacks with his scythe aside (those can likely be dodged with proper timing as you learn the fight), he teleports around a lot, and creates void zones around himself and throughout the arena often.

      >just stack as many special related buffs as you can
      Back in the first game, I really preferred not to do that. Stacking upgrades leads to diminishing results, and I found adding extra modifiers on different moves not only gives you higher damage multiplier, but it's also more fun and satisfying to use all your moves, than to just mash a single button.

      for me, it's the axe with hell splitter

      The axe is overpowered as hell. The reach on its basic attacks is so huge that if you get boons that make your attack hit in a larger area it's practically a ranged weapon. The base damage is also insanely high on it. Its special can clear a whole room. And this is setting aside Daedalus upgrades which can make it broken.

      By far the axe's best ability though is its omega attack, the spin. I've killed bosses with nothing but that move.

      Charon Aspect really adds to the axe's power by giving you the option of blowing up regular casts (NOT omega casts) with the omega special. It's basically a manually detonated landmine you can use to pulverise everything from the swarm of flying fish in Oceanus to phase 2 Chronos when he's trying to scare you away from melee range with time bubbles or instantkill attacks

      >How early access is it?
      The game's functional and you can progress through the story and play it normally for the most part, though they're not done with all of the playable areas yet. It takes quite a bit of play time before you hit the wall, of developed content though. There's also a lot of placeholder icons and artwork the further in you go, so they're still working on assets. The actual game play is basically done, but will obviously need a lot of balance tweaks. It's hard to work on balance changes while they're still finishing the maps, though, since balance will depend on that.
      >Is it actually slop or good?
      I have no idea what your criteria for these buzzwords is. It's basically more of Hades I, but with a new main cast. So it ultimately comes down to how you like or dislike the new characters.

      It's version .9, so it's pretty close to being content complete. There's a lacking endgame goal that Hades 1 has and it still has some placeholder art.

I feel like they released it early to get feedback on balancing and other mechanics.

    Explain to me why Melinoe and Zagreus are children of Hades in the games insread of Zeus

      Last I recall Zagreus has several possible origin points, while sticking close to Melinoe's origin would involve NTRing Hades and that ain't cool.

        >Persephone regularly travels back to Olympus after the epilogue of Hades I to meet Demeter and keep relations up
        >Nyx mentions she hopes nothing happens, because with this family, you never know
        All the seeds for NTR were there. Man fricking imagine if Hades got cucked, just imagine how Zagreus would feel about his mom getting raped by Zeus lel.

        Really had no choice but to make her Hades daughter if you ask me. Mythology is one thing, but if it'd frick over the story you want to tell, you need to diverge.

    I enjoyed the first game but I will not play the 2nd one, until its at most $10. The trannification of females and over exposure of homosexual stuff is very upsetting, and I dont want to support that.

    I don't get it, I don't like early access by default but I can understand why someone would do it, but Hades already made a shit ton of money so WHY? if you wanted to generate hype for the game just make a free demo

      Since you were too young to remember, let me elucidate you. Hades 1 was in EA first on EGS, and then again on Steam. So, no surprise the sequel also launches in EA.

    • 6 days ago

      They must believe part of why Hades succeeded is they had all that player feedback from EA to fine tune it. They could do the same thing with post-release patches, but releasing a game in a deliberately unfinished state is just unprofessional. I normally don't like Early Access because it's an excuse for devs to sell an unfinished game, but in the case of SGG and Hades in particular, I think it works since the EA version is nearly feature complete and fully playable, and you can trust SGG to not just finish it, but polish it to a mirror shine.

    Normally I'd say it's boring because it's a vessel for wokeness, but the first game was woke too and it was fun.
    In this case, I put it down to Supergiant selling out and cashing in. This is the first sequel they've made and it's a clear sign they've abandoned their passion and just want to coast on brand recognition to get more $$$
    Roguelikes in particular tend to make make poor/lazy sequels. The point of a sequel is to have something appreciably new and progressive, not another iteration of the same, slightly different randomized shit you've already been playing over and over.
    Hades 2's content should have been a DLC expansion pack.

    I've cleared chronos with every weapon and I hate the skulls which are just some gay homosexual grenade launcher.
    And the staff isn't much better.
    The torches suck but they're fun.

    Seriously I get you wanna do a ranged focus but your weapons are boring as shit in this. The skulls are so fricking boring tbh even persephone skull with the mobile special omega is boring so I'll never use this weapon at all whereas in the first I liked every single weapon.
    Cringe.
    Needed more Zeus shield type of ranged not just durr boom aoe pick up shell ok boom

      I don't think torches will ever be balanced, sadly. Too hard to justify a weapon that requires no aim clearing faster than a slow melee axe

      The skulls are good with some Daedalus upgrades. Get the one where it casts your Omega attack every time you pick up a skull. Throw all three skulls at something and special into them will insta kill everything.

    I disagree, its fun as hell. Surprised half the characters don't have bed sheets on them like Hades 1 did for its first week in EA. There are things to refine, but the new sprint system just takes a little time to get used to. Its funny seeing people whine about half the weapons when they are way better than most aspects in Hades 1's EA. The staff, knives and sickle are amazing.

    why are there boons that are straight up useless unless you get a bunch of other stuff
    i'm talking about the "get X number of elements"
    similarly, the chaos boon that gives you 1 of each is useless until you get a boon that gives you a buff for them

      yea elementals feel like a garbage mechanic. you don't even get that many boons to begin with and so what little you do have are usually never the same type. good luck getting any elemental when you have aphrodite, poseidon, and apollo as your main boons. i'm always 2-3 off the required amount

        poseidon's and aphrodite's infusions only want 4 elements, how are you failing to activate them with 25 or more boons per run?

      A few of the infusions are decent, like the "Get +X% damage for every Y element held"
      I think I managed to activate the one that required all elements only once, and only because I got +2 of every element from some boon (Chaos?)
