Looks like this is pretty luck based, I don’t really see how you can really do better than “run away from enemies and use your skills when available” so it all comes down to the equipment you find. Which can be fun too, like Isaac. By the way, watch your “the game”s. Especially from 4:30 to 5:30, I counted 10, heh. Reply Jack Ragasa says: 2013-12-09 at 9:33 PM Thanks for the input. I thought something felt off but wasn’t quite sure. And yeah it is strikingly gear dependent, which can be fun for some but not for others. It can be fun, but its an acquired taste. Reply nope says: 2013-12-10 at 1:55 AM You pretty much covered all the bases, 8/10 not even mad about anything. Reply Aeiou says: 2013-12-10 at 3:11 AM Your reviews and the speech you use in them have improved quite substantially since you started. Only complaint i have is make more reviews, a good issue to have. Reply Jack Ragasa says: 2013-12-10 at 3:17 AM I’m gonna need a couple things for that: a steam account with every videogame, a super comfy chair, and a direct feed of soda to my bloodstream. The soda is key. Reply Gig says: 2013-12-10 at 3:37 PM Thank you for not calling this a Roguelike, “roguelike-like”, “rogue-lite” or any other stupid useless false categorization. Reply Jack Ragasa says: 2013-12-11 at 7:23 AM Maps aren’t randomized, “gear” is just perks, and there’s no in-depth character progression. It’s really nowhere near rogue or “rogue-like” Don’t get me wrong, its still a good action game. Its just not rogue-like. Reply Anon says: 2013-12-11 at 8:29 AM BUT ALL GAMES WITH RANDOM ELEMENTS ARE ROGUELIKES, DURRRR Reply Jack Ragasa says: 2013-12-11 at 8:35 AM I could do a video about this, but my favorite roguelike is Dungeons of Dredmor so I have no credibility. Also, mario party is a rogue-like. You heard it here folks. Reply Cancel reply You can use basic HTML in your post. Gather Your Party will never share your email address with anyone, ever.
