    They aren't great on their own but their strength is in positioning because if you kick someone into walls or spikes it does a ton of damage and they explode

    Or off ledges.

    There was a third kick in early access that was basically the spiked shield, if you kicked an enemy during an attack, it would crit and interrupt. Dunno if it's still there.

    Hmm, I'm always intrigued by items that seem to suck disproportionately, it always makes me feel there is something you can do to make it un-suck, the magikarp effect

    Broke as fuck in the style of the times. Gratitude is all that can return on your generosity.

    Got the last boss to about 10%.

    So close. Would have managed it too if I'd just had one more health vial to buy time with.

    Think I'll leave it a while and come back after I've cooled off.

    Ok, I didn't have the Hayabusa sandals, I had the Spiked sandals which critical when the enemy is attacking and bonus damage when you hit them from behind and level 2 frost blast and it took me to the final boss on my 4th run on a new save.

    So I started playing the full release game this morning, and I was happy with this game in early access, but holy shit they somehow made it better. I am still dogshit, and have only progressed to. . . ah crap I forget, but a couple stages after the Concierge. In early access I was never able to get this far, but it might have had something to do with the gear I picked up during my 4th, maybe 5th run today.

    Holy crap that whip was awesome, but I would forget to use it, simply because that bow was just wrecking everything in front of me.

    This game is pretty good. I found these throwing dagger that made dudes bleed and set the ground on fire. They really shredded shit, but then I died.

    Do you have to fight the bosses every time, or just once?

    This game is a lot like Rogue Legacy, I thought the bosses might be like that where you just need to beat them once

    Bought this game today and have played a few hours. Man I feel pretty useless when I don't get Frost Blast.

    Uh. I fought the boss at the Insufferable Crypt
    How am I supposed to hit that guy? I got him down below half just by throw grenades at him when he went down low but then hit tentacles murdered me.

    Also my favorite weapon is currently the lowly Infantry Bow. Just rolling up and popping them in the head with an arrow is so satisfying. Especially if you breach a door doing so.

    Does restart on the menu just restart my current run?

    Because if so that’ll help lots because whenever I start with the broadsword I may as well be dead already

    Dang that Hand fellow really has a lot of health huh. Almost took him down but I ran out of healing.

    Fire, poison, and turret traps do work to those tentacles. Fire in particular seems to hit them even when they're burrowed.

    Did you get one past the first?

    I've got what some Googling told me is not a unique bug where that's the only one that would unlock for me and all subsequent runs don't make the counter go down

    I think it's not on the PC version

  • godmodegodmode Southeast JapanRegistered User regular
    Funny enough, I felt pretty competent in the Insufferable Crypt boss fight. I died because I stopped to heal and took an unlucky poison shot but otherwise it didn't feel too difficult, unlike the clock boss who I only beat cause I had an insane loadout and I just button mashed to victory

    Holy craaaap the slumbering sanctuary is such a cool zone!

    Fuck those big golems though

    I finally have the spider rune, so I can go everywhere now but really that just means routing to avoid the enemies I hate dealing with and never revisiting those other places ever

    for the insufferable crypt boss I was carried through the tentacle phase by traps and fire

    so much fire

    Finally beat the concierge.

    The difficulty really ramps up after that.

    I just did this too with the boss. Fire grenades and dodging.

    Then I died to the miniboss in the sanctuary. If I’d had any other weapon than the broadsword I’d have had him as I was doing well jumping his shots between my grenades but could not hit his little adds due to the slowness of the broadsword swing and finally got overwhelmed.

    I have beaten the final boss.

    I can't wait to do this run about 50 thousand more times.

    Turns out you can break down doors you need to pay to open.

    Also turns out that doing so curses you.

    Hahah! I got the rune that lets you open the little challenge areas and who's pulling my leg with that shit? It's not even a waste of time, I get obliterated in like fifteen seconds

    you mean the ones in the sublevels or the big door at the start of the game? The little ones arent bad at all. The one at the entrance can be tough, but you start working out the optimal choices to make and can take them down. like the one yesterday had an opening choice of a shovel or a torch, then immediately put me in a room with a friggin golem. took me a dozen or more attempts but i finished the daily challenge, got the weapon reward.

    Damn, people are flying through this game. I haven't beaten the Concierge more than once...I think I've done about twenty runs so far?

    Many of us here have been playing the game in early access on steam for like 6-12 months.

    Did kicks always do a combo? Because they are now my favorite weapon.

    There's two kicks, the Spartan sandals with no combo and the Hayabusa boots with a quite rad combo

    Are the sandals any good? I've honestly been avoiding them because my god are we still makin 300 gags now, at this time, at this late date, cause if so we're doing it forever

    Spartan sandals suck, hyabusa sandals are good

    BTW, has anyone gotten both the hyabusa sandals and the hyabusa gauntlets equipped at the same time? It would be near if they gave a special bonus to use both.

    Came back after getting killed by the last boss yesterday and killed them for the first time on my first run today.

    Had a pretty much ideal setup. Legendary Assassin Dagger, Frost Blast and Crossb-O-Matic and a second VII++ turret with good synergy.

    Ending:
    That... didn't explain much. I still want to keep playing though so hopefully there's more to dig up.

    I appreciate that my character was as confused as I was.

    Well, the procedural generation created a level that I physically cannot get through right at the start of the furthest I've ever gotten, so that's cooooooool
