Symphony of the Night-meets-Dark Souls games are a dime a dozen these days, but this one really looks like something special from the couple minutes of gameplay footage I've seen so far. Immediately looked more enticing than, like, Death's Gambit for instance. I already have soooo many dang games I need to get to though, just ordered a copy of Bloodstained for $25 last night. Have any of you folks picked Blasphemous up yet?

The art looked great, but after how bland the action in Slain! was, I'm hesitant to throw down on it just from looks unless someone can convince me otherwise.

The art is great, but some of the reviews have scared me off. Also was watching someone play it on Twitch for a few minutes last night and it kind of looked boring. I'm interested in hearing what shizzies have to say since that could sway me back.

I'd like to play based on the art direction alone. Definitely a metal video game.

I looked at this and realized I need to finish Dead Cells instead (some day).

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

Define "finish".

You know how the first time you play Dark souls, the Humanity system doesn’t make sense because it doesn’t liken itself to systems in other games you’ve played, and the game doesn’t bother explaining it to you?

That’s how I feel about everything in Blasphemous so far. I don’t understand any of it. I have a sword and a magic spell and I can slide and block, and if I die I have less magic unless I find my corpse. Also I have to find 3 things I think. I am not being intentionally vague I just don’t know what the fuck I’m doing. I unlocked 3 special moves that I haven’t found any use for yet. My only genuine criticism so far is I’m not always sure when I’ve been hit by an enemy. Like sometimes you’ll get hurt by simply touching an enemy, but not always, and sometimes there’s a knock back and sometimes there’s not. It’s confusing. Also the lore is heavy handed and intentionally obtuse but not in an intriguing way that makes me want to try and understand it.

Game is gorgeous as fuck though.

Imma wait till it's $9.99, I got so much to play now that it doesn't seem necessary, and after sinking nearly 1000 hours into EACH dark souls game (and their remasters) and Sekiro I'm burnt the fuck out on the grim+dying a lot genre

At least get past a second boss. Wherever that happens to be.

 

I respect that someone had a vision for a new grimdarksoulsbornrygarmania but honestly there are so damn many of them now.

It sounds super cool, but all of the gameplay I've seen looks like you block a hit, slide back for about a second, then counter hit, rinse, repeat. I am in a Dead Cells mood lately, so this seems too slow-paced in the combat department.

 

The bosses look pretty cool though!
