Something else to note is the number of film and game references is ridiculous. Some overt and some subtle. I spotted:Spoiler
Jo Jo's Bizarre adventure
Street Fighter 2
And that's before you just consider the influences from Devil May Cry and Spiderverse and Space Channel 5 and stuff like that.
Just an incredible game.0
I found myself tapping my foot while playing this, you just have to dodge everywhere to the beat or you're mad.
The credits music is amazing:Spoiler
The song about working really hard on it but it being just a game, no sweat0
That's the credits rolling. Fucking fabulous.
Game of the Year contender and it's only January.
There is definitely a difficulty spike about half way through, but stick with it, because it's an upward trajectory all the way to the end.4
Yeah I honestly think the show made a mistake trying to be edgy and "adult" with the gore and swearing and the initial tone, because the writing is good enough to carry it as a show for a wider audience, but they've kind of shot themselves in the foot with that and will have to run with it.
It does definitely feel a little rushed, but I think that's becoming an issue with a lot of series these days when they can't commit themselves to multiple 24 episode seasons like Avatar.1
Oh my God, Track 9. Fucking sublime.1
I would never normally do this with games - but I've been watching the next stream Max Dood did with it after I got further in the game (not wanting spoilers obviously), and the love it's getting is just intense. One of the game's (alleged) devs even popped in his chat at one point saying they worked on it and were glad people liked it!
It just oozes love and care all over it.
I think the only other game I've done that with is Elden Ring streams last year - it's just infectious being there at the start with something and seeing people go nuts for great moments.1
The first season turned down the cheese rapidly as it went on. This season is now only as cheesy as something like Avatar/Korra ever was and is generally fairly tonally serious and silly at the right moments, so it's just the right balance. But starting this one after not watching the previous would be somewhat pointless as it's a direct continuation of various character narratives.
I personally have enjoyed this far more than Arcane because Arcane felt a bit self important about itself at times.0
I don't even need to watch any of those. This is going to be the best game all year. Yes, including Rip and Tears of the Kingdom. (Well, apart from Hi-Fi Rush)0
Normal service should be resumed shortly.1

Isn't that part of the riddle: "no-one has wounded me for thousands of years" didn't necessarily mean physically. Plus he has been down there a long time.0
Doesn't Deathloop count?4
I'm finding parts of the game with certain enemies very tricky now even on normal mode because of my shitty rhythm ability, but it's not dampened my enjoyment of it one bit. It's doing exactly what it wants and I love it for it.Spoiler
There was a data pad (yes I actually read some of them) that made a joke about why is there a huge timing puzzle for a section when it could just be a key - "because it's more fun!"

That actually would have been legitimately brilliant.19
I only just twigged what was going on at the end of trackSpoiler

I mean obviously it's because it's all in his head. Subtle but brilliant0

That was, indeed, a most bizarre adventure. Would recommend.
The descent into "yes and" madness will infuriate you if you're into anime for the rich characters and complex narratives but that's your problem Poindexter. This is a golden experience.
Your heart would need to be a stone ocean not to appreciate the battle tendency on display. A real bunch of stardust crusaders on this show.
The diamond at the heart of the show is really unbreakable.
So what you're saying, in a roundabout way, is holy shit, oh my God. Sonofabitch.1
Still avoiding spoilers, but this week's trio of episodes were bloody brilliant.
In episode 6 in particularSpoiler
That whole fight was just some absolute tippety top tier stuff. They are masterfully directed.
Also, I guessed very early on that the "riddle" would involve Scanlan doing literally what he did, but it was no less great to see that perfect plot beat coming0

Very few people are aware of this, but Dark Souls has long had a secret at Firelink Shrine that people have often ignored for years.
When you first climb the stairs and enter Firelink Shrine for the first time, the instinct will be to light the bonfire and then continue exploring. However, for this secret (and the reason most people miss it) it is important to not light it until after the next steps:
With the Firelink bonfire NOT lit, look for a small well nearby - You'll know you have the right one as there is a corpse draped over it that looks like it's looking down the well.
Once you find it, it should be a straightforward matter to jump into the well - you'll have to get a run up from a nearby platform.
Now, assuming you've done the above correctly, you'll find an extremely valuable and fun to use item, that makes the first few areas MUCH easier.25
Don't get me started on the running away from the cold and slamming a door on it scene in The Day After Tomorrow.
To this day one of the most stupid things I have ever watched.3
A cartoon series would be tremendous.0
Describing consumed media as "food" is another reason, like all his sexism and other gg supporting nonsense, to dislike that gman guy.0
Interesting side note: Max Dood streamed this last night right after it dropped, instead of playing Forspoken, which got dropped like a hot rock, and the stream went down an absolute storm with viewers absolutely adoring it and the chat going mental.
This game is absolutely going to become a cult hit this year.1
This is just an unbelievably cool and fun game. It's giving me what I was missing after Astral Chain, the last action game like this that had the same sense of fun, creativity and style.0
Now there areSpoiler
References. This game rules.2
This game is superb! An absolute treat of a game and that's only after the second boss.
It's full of references tooSpoiler
I could have sworn there was something to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake voice actress making a joke about taking the stairs being an arduous path.
For something like this to just spring into existence fully formed is just, *chefs kiss*1
Hi-Fi Rush - Rhythm brawler (out now)
I played through this on Game Pass but I'm honestly thinking of buying it on Steam just to have it in my library now. And to just give the developers some more cash into the bargain. They deserve it.
