I'm in the middle of a hella good run from last night, have multiple gold weapon drops, I'm just pure DOT destruction.

    This game fucking rules

    It plays great on Switch, aside from some relatively minor slowdown (at least so far)

    I made it up to the first boss today and did alright, I died but got it down to about half health?

    Look at this fucking sword that just randomly dropped for me. I am now streamrolling everything. It has a bit of a pause before the first swing but I've gotten use to it and love it.

    I like to shoot bows and hide behind shields like a big old coward.

    Holy shit that's a rad sword. I still am not used to the delay of broadswords, myself. Twin daggers are fucking aces for me.

    One thing that strikes me about this game is how damn well-tuned it feels. The sound, the movement, the controls, everything just works so well together.

    I should learn to use shields

    Instead I will continue to be the big coward who drops shooty traps and lets them do the work

    I used that sword to kill the first boss in my first try, only getting to half health. Then on the next level I died to a curse because I did not know what that laughing chest did.

    That was a rad sword. I will miss it dearly.

    I might jump back into this after I finish Hollow Knight, since I dropped off it a while back.

    Are there any major changes with the full release compared to early access?

    I know I am a clown who sucks but man it feels like the parry window could be a smidge more generous, arrows I can parry pretty reliably but melee stuff is just too fast

    I don’t even know how to parry. I think I do it without even noticing.

    To parry you block with a shield just before an attack hits you

    There are some enemies later on who are a lot easier with a shield

    I think you need to tap shield but not hold shield to parry? I could be wrong.

    Or just making my life way harder on myself.

    I think holding it is okay it's just that the window for melee attacks is like, small

    Quick google says:

    "If you tap button, you can see sheld swing animation, that's your parry frames.
    If you hold button, parry animation is hidden behind block animation, but parry is still happening.
    Once parry frames are over you'll be in block mode until button is released."

    I get it now but that was definitely not intuitive to me!

    Edit: Wow, I knew cursed treasure chests would have drawbacks but FUCK that noise. Completely tanked my run that was going great. Never again.

    I feel like the game got a bit easier since I last played it in 2017, but it's possible that dying on the Black Bridge too many times prepared me for release.

    Also, I need to stop taking cursed chests.

    I ran into a cursed chest on PC and immediately forgot about the single-hit kill and died to the first enemy I encountered. Good job, me!

    Cursed chests are like "hey man, want to end this run really early for no reason???"

    I have a real rough time with those dual-sword wielding fellas

    If I have something like freeze or whatnot to lock them down it’s little issue, but if I don’t, hoo boy.

    I’ve gone from relentlessly playing Enter the Gungeon to this. Dunno how I’ll go back to games with actual continue functions now.

    Once I get past the stilt village the sheer damage and stuns enemies put like to put out means traps and the cool down mutation are all that’s saving me, this is not an easy game.

    I can get down the bridge boss pretty consistently, but the location after that has thus far eluded me.

    That said I think I could have done it last run had I not opened my first cursed chest ever. Never again.

    Are they the teleporty dudes? I like shields for them. Either I get the parry timing right and get to kill them or go to early and just get a block, which often just stuns them anyway, but either way gives a large enough gap to stun and kill.

    Yeah, the teleporters. I should try shields more often, I just usually go with dual blades or something if I can because I gotta go fast.

    shields are good and generally the parry timing is pretty easy, just hit the button when you see the exclamation point

    Finished my good good run first thing last night; got all the way past boss 2 but died in the next area.

    Made my way through the sewers last night to get the rune down there. I think that area is easier than the battlements if only because double sword dudes aren't there. Fuck those guys.

    I ended up with a really good setup on my second run and beat the black bridge guard. Then i took a break, came back to the game in handheld mode, and died on the very next stage as i mixed up the roll and secondary weapon buttons. Oh well.

    This game is really good. I don't know how bullshit things get later on, but the controls really feel good, and that goes a long way. Big fan of using bows for everything, at least early on.

    The Concierge is a rough customer. I was hoping to get him with a combo of freeze shot + grenades, but he gets resistant to that after a point, and the regular grenades just don't do enough damage.

    This wasn't even on my radar since I roguelikes/dark soul style games never interested me, but Giantbomb's QL intrigued me, and I wanted something new to play.

    Totally worth it.

    The procedural generated levels and the permanent stuff you build towards keeping in every run go a long way to making the deaths less frustrating.

    More importantly, it's just feels so right. They nailed controls, feel, everything.

    I think I'm coming to terms with the idea that I won't be able to just roll around and spam garbage to kill this asshole and will actually have to like dodge and jump consistently while also attacking and man I don't like it

    So far the lesson i've learned with every boss and elite enemy is that fair melee engagements are a mistake

    Every time i win it's because i found some good traps and pumped them up before i walked in
