So I'm trying this free on gamepass.
Really enjoyed the first attempt. HOWEVER it took so long! Is there any way to speed this up? Speed up animations or use keyboard shortcuts or anything?
That's something I love about monster train, can do a run in a reasonable time.
I don't know. I thought this game was amazing but the pacing in Hades and Spelunky 2 have me hooked so havn't touched it in weeks.
It might be a case of a brilliant combat system with an overrought meta game, even though it's very pretty and interesting enough. The nemesis style system is cool but also possibly unecessary? Or maybe when you are good you can play faster than I? I'm probably at 3 hours a run at least which dosn't really work for me.
There is a reason Into the Breach canned their strategy layer in favour of their chill, command and conquer style mission selection screen. Or maybe the long runs are ok and we are just thinking about it wrong. I guess original xcom runs could go for 40 hours and still end in failure and we thought that was cool.
