Beat Crash 4. Absolutely stunning. Loved every second of it. The last stage took me over a 150 lives (and I finished it with no gems lol). The skin you get for beating the game is crash all banged up and in a cast. Perfect. I'm in no way done with this game. Simply finishing is only the first challenge. Plenty of gems, skins, relics, and tapes to go!
Got to the end of the Early Access version of Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth. I'm of mixed feelings about this being a licensed game. It's so conservative with the source material. The characters are basically cardboard cutouts of Lodoss War fanart, making incomprehensible quips about rage and love, leading me to suppose that we're headed for an "it was all a dream, an evil wizard did it" sort of anti-reveal ending. It's not like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night had a deep, page-turning sort of story, but at least it didn't feel fake, you know?
Still, the animation is beautiful, gameplay is smooth, and it doesn't overstay its welcome with an overly padded-out map. Plus you can cheese your way through half of the boss fights with the first spell they give you, ha.
I just beat the full version of this today. Overall I liked it more than I loved it. It is a nice, short experience (I clocked about 9 hours total) but I don't think I'll re-visit it unless the devs add a new game+.And then this week finished out the full game. It gets a lot better in that back 1/3 that wasn't available until the full release! It still plays it safe with an "it was all a dream" premise, but within those bounds, it does pull off quite a bit of character development and emotional weight. Plus a couple of fun endboss sequences!
Sounds great. Which of the original three games did it feel like the most? I mean, maybe that's a silly question, but they feel quite different.
Also, how much play time did you put in, up to now?
I realize that "SMS" stands for "Sega Master System" here, but I'm really kind of charmed by the idea of a side-scroller that you play by texting.
Got through Master of Darkness, my other recent SMS grail. This game is 90% Castlevania, 9% From Hell, and 1% Ninja Gaiden.
Purple figured it out for herself but if you're still wondering - it's this thread:Earlier, somewhere, pretty sure some thread here, someone was talking about Hydlide
I'm not sure how long, apparently PS4 doesn't track time spent in individual games? 20- 25 hours feels about right, but that's with quite a bit of time spent replaying levels for gems.
It doesn't really feel like any of the three games, other than it feels exactly like the three games. It's very much Crash 4. It evolves from those games just as if 20 years hadn't passed. Unlike 3 it doesn't have any vehicle levels (no biplanes thank god) but it does have a lot of variety, its just all of a platforming bent.
I'm fond of the original trilogy but I think 4 is my favorite. It's very fun, very hard, and very polished.
Plus you can dress Crash up as a dino saur.
