  • Re: Cuphead - Run&Gun Game

    Just finished this. Mixed feelings. Aesthetically the game is gorgeous. Wonderful looking all around.

    As for the game itself, I wish it was an actual run'n gun instead of what it is. Those levels are pretty interesting, but they probably went for boss rush instead for lack of resources to do a whole game in run'n gun format.

    The shmup sections are awful. They do pretty much everything you should avoid in that type of game: terrible hitboxes, inertia, underpowered shot and some really dumb decisions like punishing you for no reason for going to the right edge of the screen on the djinn fight. The game would be much better without these sections.

    The hitboxes in particular are rather annoying. So is RNG screwing you up sometimes. Weapon balance is terrible with most doing way too little damage and charge shot being pretty much a must if you want to avoid overly long fights, with the bounce ball being second from what I've played.

    Some bosses are pretty cool and some are a chore. Dicehead is not particularly hard once you have working strategies and patterns figured out but having to fight at least three bosses before him is annoying. Some really wonky bugs too like the monkey boss glitching and having to reset to beat him, or phantom hitboxes on the devil's snake attack.

    All in all despite my complaints and the overall lack of focus of the game, I appreciate the effort and in the end enjoyed it more than not, and putting out a decently challenging game on the mainstream sight at a time where stupid journalists demand boss skipping buttons is good. Just hope that their next game gets rid of these mistakes with a better funded, more focused sequel. Which is a possibility with Cuphead selling a ton right now.

    If that is true, Tenshinhan is like I expected him to be with Chaoz assist. Yamcha is cool, and I can't wait to see the tears over a waifu and original character.

    Waiting for pics.

    Fuck Yamcha. He's the Dan of DBZ, anything above bottom tier would feel out of character for him and then he doesn't have any remarkable techniques anyway (maybe that homing fireball he used against Kamisama in disguise and that's it). His rightful place is as a background character in those canyons where they fight against Nappa, properly dead.

    Well he's the kind of character that has to make it into vanilla cause no way he could sell as a DLC.

    Hope he ends up being top tier so you cry more.
