General Gaming Blasphemous (2D action-platformer/Metroidvania inspired by Spanish Catholic folklore) - first reviews from OpenCritic posted

I love metroidvania games but any game that actually says "metroidvania" in their marketing is an automatic pass from me as if the pixelated garbage wasn't already a reason to pass.

Very logical and meaningful reasoning.

What? I dont like games that look like pixalated shit. There's a right way of doing pixalated graphics and then there's this where all i see is a bunch of moving blocks instead of a nice animated character.

An animated character is literally a bunch of moving blocks. Does not compute.

I usually shit on pixel art. I generally don't like it, and prefer games with more unique art styles like Bastion. But the visuals are pretty damn good. Top quality pixel art. I added it to my steam wishlist and will get it if there is a good sale.

Impressions seem rather mixed on this game. I think I will wait for a sale. 

I was gonna Day 1 it but don't like some of the negatives I've read. They're things that would irk me. I'll wait and see if it ends up being patched and overhauled like many of these games seem to. If not I'll pick it up sometime later.

 

My demo impressions were obviously very good but don't like the frequent mention of level design and upgrades not being very good and useful.

Ended up buying it the other day and with some patches and balancing, there's a great game underneath some of the rough shit I think. It's not perfect and has some issues but overall the more I'm playing, the more I'm getting sucked in. It definitely leans way more into the spiked pits/enemy memorization per screen type of design rather than Metroid in terms of moment-to-moment gameplay. 

 

I will say that I think anyone, what the one or two of you here, considering buying this should hold off. There are a ton of bugs and other stupid shit adding a layer of annoyances right now and I really think they're going to patch and balance the fuck out of this.
