Minit rules, it's got a lot of nice, clever puzzles, the dialogue's funny, and it can be played in short bursts so it's great for portable play. Yes you can speed through it in 30 minutes if you know what you're doing but your first time though is going to be more like an hour and a half to two hours and there's a heavily remixed hard mode that takes about as long.

Whats the deal with the endless gauntlet of bosses in the room to the left after you defeat Isaacs Mom in binding of Isaac? Does it ever end? So tired of getting all the way to the Mom and then getting killed after defeating 10+ bosses in that room

I know from now on to not go in it but I hate stuff like that in games where you cannot win. It is super frustrating and makes you feel like you wasted your time.

Wondering this myself, looked up a video and in a half hour someone already beat the entire thing so uh... really wondering why people are excited about it other than "it is a game that exists and is on the switch"

Is it good?

It's a good puzzle-ish game but it's pretty short. It has replayability though with some game modes.

You can beat the first game blind in about 3-5 hours.

That's a boss rush room. It's a long string (15 waves of 2 bosses) in a row, but it does end. You should be able to bypass it and go deeper. I only ever play it if I have an awesome build on that run.

That room opens when you beat mom within 20 minutes. It does end after a bunch of waves and you get an item at the end of it, it also has unlocks tied to it for each character you beat it with.

The protagonist is a swearing redneck. For no reason.

Like you missed my point, my point was that if you're going to have a redneck protagonist have a reason for it. Like just making a Redneck Rampage remake.

I really like the game and will defend it to the death but it's even worse lol, the protagonist is like some Finnish game studio's idea of what a redneck is. Sometimes when a bunch of frog enemies spawn your character is like "I heard they eat frog legs in Europe..... yuck!" -- I'm from the south and eating frog legs is the most redneck rear end poo poo I can think of . Also apparently the main character is from Kansas which is absolutely not a "redneck" state. Basically gently caress Europeans lol

Same. My brother-in-law doesn't live too far, but ultimately I find adult life too busy to be playing too many games, let alone getting people to join up. The few game friends I have are way more into board games than anything else.

Does Towerfall have an online mode, because then it becomes way more interesting, even if there won't be any trash talk.

xedo posted:

True, but... the Wii's virtual console largely relied on using a wii classic controller accessory. Snes and N64 games couldn't play off a simple wiimote. There's no reason they couldn't make a new joycon set with analog triggers specifically to support a gamecube package or line of ports. Maybe throw in a microphone too, for the ds/3ds/wii u games that relied on having something to blow into.

The problem with a JoyCon that has analogue triggers is it completely invalidates the existing iteration, it wouldn't just exist merely for Gamecube ports. The only way you're gonna see it happen is if they roll it out as a newJoyCon/JoyCon 2.0.

You'd be more likely to see a Switch version of a Wavebird.

Good thing itís not one of those things you canít win. I won it my first try but it was pretty funny how that poo poo just kept coming.

One of these times youíll randomly have a build that makes it easy. Itís a fun challenge when you do.

I had like splitting acid rapid fire tears that arced lightning wherever they hit and it just melted everything in the room as it spawned. I also had something that healed me I want to say.

This is extremely accurate to Louisiana though, they even used the correct school colors for the college its an obvious reference too. Hell, the devs went an extra mile and the potato chip bags in the house are modeled after a local louisiana brand.
