    I played the whole game a couple of times and I got to say, I love it. I didn't really have problems with bugs or what not. Might have happend a few times but they were pretty funny and didn't destroy my whole run. The part after the Metroidvania bit goes back to normal and there is a couple heartbreaking scenes in the story. The ending is pretty good as well. My first time playing took me 20h to just finish the game but already the second playthrough took me just 10h to 100% the game. I wouldn't say this game is difficult but more that it's tricky (especially the bosses), you definitely need to get used to the game and play by it's rules. Minigames are fun but some are too difficult in my opinion. I broke my controller trying to complete one minigame that required me to smash both shoulder buttons like crazy. So yeah. Music is mostly fun and I like the use of classic music infused with 8-bit. Does it feel like too much? Yes, first time playing I was blown away how much it lasted. But I was thankful for it. There you go, my mini review.

    The game is fucking brilliant. Hard as nails sure but fucking great.

    Doesn't look like it's been a strong year, by Yahtzee's tastes.
    I can't think of any games he's reviewed he didn't think were better than decent.
    Just a lot of games that'd probably have been a contender for #5 in previous years.

    1:04 Oh, you mean like watching this video as it came up on the zero punctuation playlist?
    Right, because everyone reads the title before the video automatically moves on to the next.
    Stop complaining and make me more videos.

    When u try to discredit the story u fucked up in so many ways i can't even begin, maybe u weren't paying attention. Sure the gameplay is janky but the story is strong. Just because you missed foreshadowing and explanations of things u said weren't, doesnt mean someone with a few more braincells than a screaming moron won't.

  • Shen Doodles

    This is just shy of the closest you'll get to a positive review by Yahtzee, so it's obviously worth a shot.

    Would Amid Evil and Ion Fury count as a retro review? I'm in love with both of these games and no one besides the two "boomer shooters tubers" on YT were talking about them.

    Game is very generous with checkpoints and there's no loading times whatsoever. Story itself is way better than most games has to offer. I wouldn't take Yahtzees opinions as gospel.

    The way Yahtzee says "perhaps they could have fixed some of the bugs" at 4:34 is so weirdly rhythmic, I couldn't help but listen to it, like, five times before moving on. Someone make a remix, pretty please?

    Zero Punctuation videos have this unique quality of fully captivating me with Yahtzee's analysis and talk of the game until it slaps me in the face with a sharp joke in the last second and abrubtly ends. It's really great.

    Dear Paul Helman,
    I too am working on a creative project that has taken years to build up, and an added difficulty that I have is that I want to include multiple parts that happen at the same time but in other places so they influence each other and yet are different. Even though some people have found problems with Horace, you know know what those problems are, and can now remaster it. If you streamline it and remove the ill-fitting parts, then people will get what they loved about the original and know that it's less flawed. Plus, remasters always attract a lot of new customers.

    Yeah, even with the gravity boots and the shields, the game is tough. The ending is worth it, though.
    I won't spoil the ending. Something in the story, though, bears spoiling:
    All of the robots are Horace. And when humans woke them up and ordered them to kill each other, they didn't want to.
