ghaleon: it's so strong platformers in general are a hard sell for me, I mean I haven't even tried shovel knight yet, I'm considering maybe some day but... the trauma is real. no more platformers. NO MORE!!! NOOOOO!!! *gasps*

ghaleon: I def have time for castlevania games though, BS counting as one
Jun 27, 2017 22:46:37 GMT -6
ghaleon: I'd totally play a Zelda 2 uhh. 2? 2-2? 2-two? whatever as well

purifyweirdsoul: What happened exactly, Ghaleon? Sounds like a traumatic experience. Granted I'm pretty much the same way.

kylestien: He played Bubsy.

ghaleon: Blah, I'm tired of hearing people bash bubsy when I know 95% of them (if not more) never touched it... kinda like ET

ghaleon: Bubsy on the SNES was actually not bad as far as mascot platformers go, its bad rep is purely from the 3rd version, which was post snes at which point I was already bored of them

ghaleon: That said nothing in particular happened, it's just there were so many between the 8 and 16 bit generations that I just had enough at that point. Bear in mind most people didn't have hundreds of games back then like they do now

ghaleon: most people only had a dozen or so, and wheneve ryou'd visit someone's place to play some games with them, it was often limited to some effing mascot platformers.

purifyweirdsoul: lol I feel you there. You should definitely play Shovel Knight, though. It doesn't feel or play like a mascot platformer, to me. More Mega Man with bits of Castlevania, Dark Souls...it does have a Mario 3 map, though.

Brainiac: Only for Shovel and Plague Knights, purifyweirdsoul. Specter Knight's campaign is pretty much a classic Mega-Man-style stage select system along with a hub location to explore.

Hylian: Speaking of Shovel Knight and Dark Souls, did anyone else here back Blasphemous on kickstarter?
