Thanks for checking it out! Means a lot.hazeredmist wrote: ↑August 23rd, 2019, 8:51 amHey man, so I just watched your vid. I enjoyed it! Really makes me want to play this properly soon actually. It just doesn't compute in my head how this game is legitimately free. The bullet patterns on that final boss are insane.
Very impressive. One thing I note watching this, you (well, your ship) look SO calm to me. Bullets flying all over the place and you're just meandering around with everything under control. No stress. Me? When I play these games I am jerking all over the place like a fish trying to escape from a bucket. I guess that's what comes with learning and practicing your routes!
What are you playing with by the way? A stick?
I think I'm done with this game for the time being, but I'd love to see you give it a proper whack. The default settings are extremely forgiving, so please don't be too intimidated by some of the patterns you saw.
The calmness comes from weeks of practice, really. I think this goes back to the distinction between methodical and intuitive playstyles we talked about the other day, with Stan & I being in one camp and you & clippa in the other. I don't have the greatest dexterity and my input can be pretty coarse at times, so whatever gaming "achievements" I have can usually be attributed to a lot of patience and discipline instead!
You simply can't allow the game to get inside your head and intimidate you into submission. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Ben usually says something very similar and his advice has had a very positive influence on me, btw.
And no, I'm actually playing with the latest advancement in gaming peripheral technology with the most precise analogue sticks known to man, a state of the art (busted) DualShock 4™ from Sony Interactive Entertainment. Come to think of it, this probably wasn't a very fair competition to begin with if poor clippa is still stuck operating his heavy-duty farming equipment!
