Read more Hades fans are releasing an Iliad audiobookMay 29, 2021 - PCGamesNA lot of people really liked Supergiant's mythological roguelike game, Hades. (It ranks high on our GotY 2020 list, too.) Now, it's inspiring fans not just to get into Greek myth, but to record their own reading of The Iliad, one of the most notable writings of classic myth, and one of the most foundational works of Western literature. The Iliad Project is a reading of The Iliad, as translated by Robert Fagles, set to be released on June 20. The recording is done by 27 community readers, and even includes the vocal talents of Courtney Vineys, the actor behind Dusa and Aphrodite. It will be available on YouTube and various podcast apps, following a release stream on June 20 at 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT / 11pm BST. As you might imagine, the Hades developers are excited about it too, and creative director Greg Kasavin is even providing a forward for the project. "It's wonderful when Hades can help spark new or renewed interest in Greek myth," the devs say on Twitter. "These folks from our community will soon be taking it to the next level with a complete audio recording of the Iliad of Homer, which inspired our Achilles and Patroclus and many other details."

Someone beat Hades using a pomegranateFeb 19, 2021 - EurogamerHades is already difficult to beat with a regular controller or keyboard yet it seems someone decided that wasn't challenging enough, as the game has now been completed with a pomegranate. Yes, you heard that right. In Hades, Poms of Power are used to level up your boons - hence the reason for choosing the fruit - and yesterday streamer Dylan "Rudeism" Beck uploaded a video showing himself beating the game's final boss using a pomegranate controller. He created it by "chopping pomegranate up and sticking a bunch of wires in it," using 10 pieces of pomegranate flesh and hooking them up to specific inputs using a MakeyMakey circuit board. The setup allowed Rudeism to tap the pieces to move or attack, but left him without a way to aim. "You don't need to aim, that's fine," he said. Things didn't always go smoothly: the wires would sometimes come loose from the pomegranate, while the pomegranate juice and seeds created a mess, but Rudeism still managed to beat Hades using the pom. Here's the video of that below - watch out for spoilers if you haven't yet completed the game. Read more Hades fan beats the roguelike using a controller made of pomegranateFeb 19, 2021 - PCGamesNFebruary 19, 2021 The person playing Hades with a pomegranate has now beaten Hades with a pomegranate. What a legend. While most of you have been spending your time over the weekend playing Valheim, I've been watching a content creator trying to complete a run of Hades using a controller made out of slices of pomegranate. Well, actually, we can scratch 'trying', because now the successful run is here. Rudeism explained in a YouTube video earlier this week that the setup simply involves chopping up a pomegranate and sticking a bunch of wires in it and, you know what? That's probably as much as I'd be able to understand anyway. Now, just a few days later, he's managed to beat the roguelike, too. All it took was 33 runs and a decent spear build. Despite the fact this is all happening with a pomegranate controller, some of the more minor aspects are my favourite. Rudeism has to place his makeshift controller on a tea towel to stop pomegranate juice from getting everywhere. There's not any particular reason he's using a pomegranate, either, apart from the fact that it's one of the power-ups you can get in the game. I suppose it's easier than making a controller out of ambrosia. Read the rest of the story...
