Like I posted in the General VG thread, I finished Spider-Man recently and enjoyed it immensely. Some things early on threw me off, such as attacks only hitting one person at a time, which kicked my ass for crowd control. At one point I was 2 for 100 against the Demons early on and would get my ass kicked by drug dealers on roof tops.
The problems were on my end as I wasn’t using the tool set I had at the time and was still coming to grips with some of my moves (Air Dodge for instance). I’m also not one to use items are secondary weapons until MUCH later when playing games. Once I focused more on that I was mauling the enemies. The bosses I never had much trouble with, but the regular enemies would kick my ass when I tried ‘winging it’ haha.
I’ll be replaying this game for a long time to come.
The two cons for in this game were the stealh sections later on in the game when the story just got crazy. I just wanted to FIGHT. The second being, New York doesn’t interest me much. The Avengers builiding is awesome, but a lot of places were…eh. I spent most time swinging and wall running. The few times I went of foot, didn’t do much for me, unless I was high-fiving people. This became apparent last night when I through in Kiwami 2. Seeing Kamurocho at night in the Dragon Engine will never not be amazing.
So now I’m back on Kiwami 2. I love the more dense areas to explore and and have more fun doing it. Kiwami 2 really excels in this area in that you can use the buildings as short cuts to go through different parts of Kamurocho without having to fight. Felt like home for me when I started the game up. I’ve been upgrading abilities and waited on Attack Level and damage boosts for Light and Heavy attacks. Decided to say fuck it and now I’m a wrecking ball, haha.
Man in Black was on some FUCKING BULLSHIT though. I have a save for that fight specifically beacuse it feels broken as all hell. I’ll keep at it to see if it is or not.
I saw HKDJ (HaoKuaiDeJian) is playing Bayonetta, DmC and DMC4SE. They have a Twitch channel and everytime I see this person play Bayo, I tell myself “Why wasn’t I doing that?!” or “I didn’t think of that?!”
I still have Megaman 11, Sonic, Sonic Mania Plus, Thunder Force IV and Fist of the North Star. I’ll type more on those later. Sorry for the wall of text.
