I'm sure there are people that still would enjoy it if played today but I'm not one of them. It just has a lot of fairly annoying design decisions. For example the dash to move quicker can't be held so you're constantly hitting space bar or left click but mashing it isn't great because a second press while dashing causes the character to somersault with no apparent benefit. So instead you have to time the button presses like two seconds apart and you'll do this the entire time you play for 10+ hours. About 2/3 of the way through the game there's an optional form that does move quicker than the rest but it also takes like 2x damage from what I could tell so you're quick but also more likely to run into enemies and take a lot of damage.Sad to hear Aquaria doesn't quite hold up. Still on my replay list though.
Yeah, cooking. And the singing is mostly to lift and drop things. A couple bosses have you do it. I think the rest is just switching forms and other mechanics that don't require singing. Good luck. Maybe you'll like it more. And maybe if I explored a bit more to get health upgrades I wouldn't have found it as frustrating but I really just focused it down.It's fascinating to read this because I literally have no memory of some of this stuff at all. Like having to sing during boss battles and such, no recollection whatsoever, but one would think that that kind of annoyance would have stuck with me. Though to be fair I don't remember much about it in general, just the music really. And I guess there was cooking, or some kind of item combining? Yeah, it's all a bit of a blur.
It's actually making me think about bumping it up on my list a bit haha. Very very curious to return to it after 14 years.
I liked it way more than I expected. I finished it in 14.5 hours and did a fair bit of stuff beyond just the main path so you can use that as a bit of a guide in figuring out if you'll get through it in the next week.Finally started to play Darksiders 3. This one is really fun!
But I highly doubt that I will be able to finish it before the blitz ends
Played a bit further and it seems that I always am too late to dodge attacks. Always get hit and after a few hits I die Need to learn to properly dodge enemy attacks, even if it doesn't give me a counter attackI liked it way more than I expected. I finished it in 14.5 hours and did a fair bit of stuff beyond just the main path so you can use that as a bit of a guide in figuring out if you'll get through it in the next week.
Only one week to go, everyone! Some of you may want to already start considering what will be on your Blitz next time. I've already got a theme and five games picked!
