        Not OP, but for the small time I've played, the gameplay consists on getting lucky with a good upgrade to your spell and spam it ad infinitum.
        It's so repetitive that makes turn based games, which are intrinsically repetitive, look varied.

      It's election season. Last time TLOU2 was the designated culture war game. Now there is nothing big so people are going for Hades 2 instead. This also why leftoids whined so much about media literacy and Helldivers 2. People need to fight over something pointless to distract from the fact that both candidates are sociopathic zogbots.

      As someone who just wanted to talk about the game, it's actually impossible on Ganker because of the rampant culture warrior posturing. It's nothing but faux outrage about characters not being hot enough and full buzzword salad. It's obviously a coordinated effort because it's the same exact thread of a picture of Aphrodite or Hestia and then 300 posts of /vpol/ shittery.

You are so fricking moronic that you believe it's a meaningful decision to choose between extra damage on hit or extra damage on your ranged attack.

                Play a real roguelike, and then you will understand why the boons are so laughably shallow.

                That’s not an argument

                augments by their own are boring, much like every roguelike or roguelite
                you mix them and create some fun builds
                like doing extra damage with crits to enemies who are weakened and every time i crit i mark someone else increasing their chance to be crit
                combined with deadlus upgrade to make my special hit twice and artemis special upgrade i hit twice and have a chance to crit both times
                or my previous run where i had athena's deflect on dash then got hermes to give me 2 extra dashes and i kept killing enemies with deflecting
                i am sorry you have no braincells, must suck

                the augments aren't just color swaps. this was true in the original as well -- you had extra abilities and changes in animations. Ares gave you delayed dot damage that chained off of multihits, while hephaestus's hammer gave you a myriad of changes to your basic attack animations and speed. You had things like dionysius that also had dots and stacks, but they usually gave up raw damage for crowd control. not to mention, you had abilities off your dash down that path.
                and I'm just talking about upgrades to your basic attack here. there were way more modifiers you could get to your other buttons too. Getting Athena's armor meant that you could charge into active fire with your ball or dash, which works well with the default weapon, but if you had something more ranged, a build with aphrodite + dionysius probably suits you more because of CC + dot + weaken.
                There were fun builds in hades, and there are fun options in hades 2. it's fine if you don't like it, but there are reasons people love this gameplay

                ARPGs are all about chaining together interactions that result in large damage numbers while mixing in some real time mechanics like positioning. can you tell me some types of meaningful interactions you would like that don’t involve damage? even gungeon, which had a lot of meaningful quirky guns, boils down to chaining together buffs and guns to do lots of DPS.

It is about having fun, and the people who made hades do not want you to do that. they need to limit you and "balance" you because they're afraid you'll "break the game" and have fun for once.

                they're not "afraid" you'll do it. it's that the entire design of the game is built around optional restrictions (aka taking on more heat). the fun comes from doing something that's so broken that not even the limitations could stop you, and hades 1 has many examples of that. that, and the whole idea of doing speedruns under different modifiers makes the game both interesting to play and watch (IMO).

                If that's not what you want out of your game, then hades isn't for you, but it isn't because "the devs hate fun!!!!" it's because both the devs and the fans of the game have a different idea of fun than what you want, and it clearly works because both hades's most casual and more arden fans like it a lot.

                heat is not a good mechanic. It was explicitly poorly thought out, and you can tell because winning on max heat was literally impossible until some madman got the one in ten quintillion odds godrun and did it. The hades devs hate fun. It is an objective fact when they openly come out and state "We want to limit the players power"

                The game is bland because the devs are cowards. It is the EXACT same problem as enter the gungeon.

                why is that bad? the idea is that heat runs up challenge from
                >a little spicier
                to
                >all but impossible unless the stars align
                if anything, this means heat gives the player a very fine grained resolution of difficulty from "barely nothing" to "try if you dare, but you aren't getting out without a miracle" tier.
                AND godruns literally demand you do INCREDIBLY BROKEN SHIT, which already counters the idea that hades boons "are too afraid to give the player power"

                also this doesn't tell me why one game is "deeper" while hades is "shallower." both fangs and hades boons are about affecting numbers and some animations. while you might like one better because it "gives the player more power," they are fundamentally the same type of mechanical interaction. this doesn't make synthetik "deeper," and it arguably makes it shallower if it is as broken as you are suggesting.
                Synthetik isn't shallow, but your argument makes it out to be much worse than it is lol

                Roguelikes are a subgenre within the RPG genre in which you directly control a single character on a grid based map; when the player moves the world moves with the illusion of simultaneous movement; the player takes their turn, then the world takes its turn.
                Examples:
                Elona
                Pokemon mystery Dungeon

                So give a definition that includes all roguelikes and doesn't include any non-roguelikes then.

                A roguelike is a mechanically dense game with high levels of player interaction that resets to a blank slate upon death.

                here's the real tip for you brother.
                Most games can be a roguelike, if you play them like one.
                Being a pedantic Black person just means you're now making actual roguelike games no longer roguelikes according to your stupid rules. Just because synthetik is real time, doesn't mean it's not a roguelike. Learn to not be a cringe reply guy and try to correct people who know more than you.

                guess what, it has! Synthetik has ten times the mechanical depth than fricking hades. The reason hades doesn't, is because the devs don't want to give any power to the player. Same problem as enter the gungeon.

          if you played the game, you'd know that they heavily nerfed the dash (long wind up, can't chain it) and gave enemies attack animations that aren't stunnable even without armor as early as the third room.

    Did you see how hard stellar blade incels were forcing the culture war in that game? Imagine their shock, their rage, when they are forced to confront the fact that people see their protagonist and say “uh what the frick, ew”

    Hades 2 comes in with everyone saying “yes, we prefer this. This is better”. This slap in the face of reality to the culture warrior is unacceptable. No it cannot be. We cannot lose. This cannot be happening. We had stellar blade (and lost). We had to endure the weight of BG3.

    But wait..BG3 won goty…..Hades 2 will… will…..they don’t want to admit it. The fear is in their stomaches. It’s another BG3 they are afraid of. Another loss in the great culture war. Another goty for “the enemy”. Another loss for the cultural warrior /misc/skin

    the game is genuinely bad, it's such a shame. I really liked bastion and transistor is one of my favorite games of all time. But they apparently hate writing actual stories now I guess?

    Hades could be fun if they didn't try to hyper balance out any possible fun interaction. Instead you get, extra damage on your attack, and now it's red, extra damage on your attack, and now it's yellow, or extra damage on your attack and now it's pink.

    It only barely passes bar as a "roguelite" on technical grounds, as much as any game that starts over from the beginning does. Because literally none of your choices will ever matter or impact the game at all.
