VVVVVV and Divinity II: Ego Draconis

If you read this blog even occasionally, then you probably know that I'm not much of a PC gamer. However, I do make the occasional exception for certain titles. This evening, one of those special cases found its way into my hardware: VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh.

Although I had planned on doing more in-depth coverage of the game tonight, after some consideration I decided to hold off until I'm completely done. However, I will say that it's a pretty superb little title, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

HIGH The final quest is a perfect realization of what Half-Minute Hero is all about.

LOW Any mode not titled Hero 30 seems dialed in.

WTF Did they have to reuse the catfish overlord so many times?

HIGH It's a real JRPG, except it doesn't waste your time.

LOW The Knight 30 mode could have used a little more work.

WTF Why is nobody talking about this game?
