Oh, I see -- started working on sleepy underground indie games, eh? Well, maybe I'll go ahead and review current-gen AAA titles. See how you like that.

Annoyingly, you do a very good job with this. It's always tricky with simplistic games not to over-sell what it does offer in some grandiose effort to fill the game's brevity of options with your own writing, but you don't do that. You don't do that at all, so well done.


For us. For them. For you.

Thanks! That's actually very reassuring to hear since, as you said, this is very much outside of my comfort zone. I'm not even sure if I would have taken this assignment if I'd actually read up on Nidhogg beforehand, but hey, whatever works.

Thanks for reading. Much appreciated. And I would non-jokingly like to see AAA coverage from you, so promptly get on that.


You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.

I think this Steam game discussion (http://steamcommunity.com/app/94400/discussions/0/558747288230661856/?tscn=1434015032#p1) complements the review well.

I have to say I am sorry to see that no "professional" review at all, anywhere on the Internet, has mentioned the technical misery, and the abudance of technical issues, that plague the game and render the central online multiplayer experience barely accessible.

(See for instance how hard it uses the VGU/VGA and CPU. It's insane, considering this is na 8-bit game under every audivisual regard, and bespeaks a lot of the developer's publisher. As it does that they had discussions were players complained at the game's malfunctioning removed from Steam community, at least in the aftermath of release.)

It's also frightening (to me) to read that "images of horrific violence nonetheless. It's a spectacle, and makes Nidhogg's bursts of straightforward action all the more satisfying."

(I apologyze for the triple post, but have no idea whether posts can be deleted/edited, so, sorry)
