I'm losing and I'm loving it.

Kchunxty | July 8, 2013 | Review of Dustforce

Dustforce was one of those games that blew my mind with the trailer. So I was eager to play it going into the game. Once I got into it, first I fell in love with the music (The artist, Lifeformed is now my favourite music artist) and I had to get a feel for the smooth yet specific platforming. It was a weird feeling, but one tutorial later and I got it. After the first few stages, I realized something. This wasn't an easy game at all. This is like meatboy, but taking itself seriously. So I had a pretty hard time with it. I was pretty good at it, but some levels were just too much, and the progression system was a bit too demanding for me to handle. Then Hitbox decided to release an update for the progression system, to make it a little easier. once that happened, I found myself able to progress, but still having a very fun challenge. Dustforce is a game all about precision and perfect runthroughs. Being able to pull off advanced acrobatics is key to getting anywhere in this game. It leaves no room for people who aren't good at precision platformers. Now, if you're not good at platformers to begin with, don't give this a try, it will just anger you. If you're good at regular platformers, try it out and you will probably like it, albeit needing some practice with the specific fluidity of the controls and movement. if you're already good at percision platformers, then I highly recommend this game, you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. also the music is brilliant and the art style is pleasant as hell.

Bazilliondier is probably the best description you'll get.

Kchunxty | July 8, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)

Borderlands 1 was my favourite game of that generation. And then Borderlands 2 came out. of course, I was hyped. When I finally got the game, once I turned it on, I was met with... something a bit more cinematic and linear than the first one? It was weird, but I pressed on. once I started getting into the first area, it started to feel more like borderlands, and from there to the end of the game, it only got better. I played as Salvador on my first playthrough, sine I thought that with my play style, he would be the best bet. Well he pretty much was, and I discovered that he has technically the best skill tree in the game. I was met with many deaths (especially when encountering constructors, jeez.) once I finished it, I had to start playthrough 2 with Zero, which I'm still playing. Borderlands 2 is Borderlands 1, but better. That's the best I can put it. They improved upon an enormous number of things, kept the classes interesting even though they were different, added WAY more gun variety, all while keeping it similar enough to borderlands 1 to feel like a proper sequel. I think this game deserves a 100 because it's perfect as a sequel. It does everything a sequel is supposed to do. It takes everything that was great from the first game and amps it up, improves upon all the problems, adds twice the content, and keeping it in tune with the original while still delivering a fresh experience.
