Makes with the working
- Holds 100+ FerPS just about everywhere, except near the transmutator in the hub.
- spite-noped on me once… has run perfectly ever since
Shiny / Sounds
- The first few areas look hella impressive (for a Linux game)
- Unfortunately the later areas/dungeons look like placeholders and the devels said “FK IT! Leave em”
- Same goes for some of the baddies.
- Yes, I’m looking at you Mr. Ice ball pants and you Ms. Foo Foo rocky monster.
- The sound is a little bit of alright.
- Splosions and thwacks are (for the most part) satisfying.
- However, the voice over guy … should have been me, Brad.
- The levels can get kind of samey, and it’s not impossible to get lost if you mess around with the camera
- The visuals are good, but not stunning
- The voicework is alright
- Whar MSAA gone?
- Torchlight 2
- At one point the narrator sang the “brave sir robin ran away” song from M.P. Holy Grail and i liked it
- Keyboard and gerbil work like you expect ..after you quit bitching about WASD.
- But wrap your minds around this gentlemen.
- I’ve never played an aRPG that just worked™ with a controlla.
- I reckon this could very well be the best adapted aRPG control scheme, in the world.
- I first approached this game like it was a wasd version of diablo.
- This did not work all that well
- You need a controller for this game. Dualshock 4 and Xbox 360 work fine out of the box.
- Forced controls similarly
- Both the NVidia SHIELD controller and Dual Shock 2 work out of the box.
- With their own usual shortcomings.
- It’s perfectly playable with the keyboard and mouse too, if you’re weird like me.
- I meant to try it with the keyboard and mouse, but the controller just worked too damn nice
- My thumb got sore, realized you could just hold ‘X’ to keep attacking. Brilliant!
- Really annoyed with the lack of ability to roll… press LB to roll. Brilliant!
- It’s more Action vs. RPG.
- And that’s not entirely a bad thing.
- You see, I’ve never been a fan of typical aRPGs because for me managing stats is something better left to my accountant.
- And to be perfectly honest card systems anger and confuse me.
- However Mr. Vran is extremely light in both areas so there was a chance I might possibly enjoy it.
- And I did.
- I spent most of my time running about collecting weapons and upgrading my special attacks.
- Only later did I explore the card system and after some tinkering I became near unstoppable at lvl25.
- That’s the good. Now the bad.
- Anyone have the slightest idea what the story is?
- It’s genuinely that forgettable.
- They introduced a crafting system that’s so poorly explained it’s best left alone.
- Playtime is artificially extended by collecting stars and applying mutators.
- Everything after lvl20 becomes a grind-fest and multiplayer is completely unbalanced.
- Mix that with a 10hr completion time for a hack and slash in aRPG clothing.
- At the end of the day it’s still a better love story than Gauntlet.
- This game kind of reminds me of a budget bloodborne
- You pick your two weapons and then you have at
- The system is surprisingly deep, and the card mechanic gives you more flexibility in how you want to play the game
- It can get a bit easy at time, especially with the vampiric shotgun
- Still, I can sink a few hours into this game at a time. Pretty fucking fun
- I’d give it 4 chairs for the fun weren’t it for the fact that it tickles the completionist in me, with those side-objectives in dungeons.
- “You get a chest if you don’t take damage and kill 500 spiders in 2 minutes.”
- Oh what’s that, a tiny ass spider snuck up to me and dealt 1 point of damage.
- “Better luck next time, dumbass!”
- And that is the other reason I couldn’t play it for too long.
- Everytime you restart the dungeon in order to try and fulfill arbitrary objective du jour, you get to listen to Vicky and the Voice being broody or attempting dark humor.
- How about you make it so the voices are only played the first time around?
- That said though, pretty good game.
- I’d say it’s worth the $20 admission price if you like Hack’n Slashers and want one with a slight twist on the genre.
- Jump button FTW!
- A touch repetitive
- Just one more mission. Must kill all badguys… Must find all chests…
- Pokes at the completionist OCD
- Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3 had baby, and it’s quite a bit of fun to play with.
