PS4 is almost problem free apart from rare slow down. It's such a shame it wasn't held back until Christmas and released in a finished state. The game should be game of the year for metroidvania fans but instead it was released and then broken with a patch then fixed again. It's ok if it's early access but not for a full price game. It's only because the game itself is so good that I still play it.

I'm enjoying the game, but it is really strawberry floating obstructive at times.

I couldn't figure out where to go after the Bloodless boss fight, had to look it up online. I never would have got that.

Ditched the game. It completely gooseberry fool itself after the Hall of Termination. Last few play sessions with felt like a strawberry floating chore, and I was just getting annoyed at it more and more. Stupid design choices, buggy as strawberry float too (it completely crashed my Xbox at one point).

I don't get the love for it at all.

Finished this in about 10 days, 100% complete on PC XGP.

What a game.

Loved it from start to finish. And that soundtrack. :wub:

EDIT: Sounds like there's a lot of problems on the console versions. PC version was flawless.

PS4 had a little slow down in a couple of places, but was more or less fine, too.

I don't remember having much trouble. When attacking hit it in the mouth vagina in the side view and when it's in the background dodge it's attacks and smash it in the face. I always tend to go for fast swords as while they tend to not do as much damage per hit I find the attacks so fast that they appear to do higher DPS.

Go back and grind one of the bad guys with the mace. Leave and re enter the screen until you've got 10 drops and maxed out the power.

For the boss, jump and hit the face and try to avoid damage if possible. Grind a bit to get some health drops too.
