    Good review, I liked the mention of small details like the Steam overlay.

    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.

    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.

  3. You pretty much covered all the bases, 8/10 not even mad about anything.

  4. 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.

      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.

  5. Thank you for not calling this a Roguelike, “roguelike-like”, “rogue-lite” or any other stupid useless false categorization.

      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.

    • BUT ALL GAMES WITH RANDOM ELEMENTS ARE ROGUELIKES, DURRRR

        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.
