I'm not too worried about the difficulty of the game ( mind you I've never played it) as long as there's checkpoints that you can hop back pretty quickly to where you left off. It's games like hollow knight that i find beyond difficult. There's fair difficult and unfair difficult in my mind. In my opinion, games like dkctf and shovel knight had perfectly fair difficulties. Very hard platforming at times but if you died, you can pretty much go right back in where you left off ( or close to) and give it a shot again. Can anyone who played this confirm what type of difficulty the game Is? Secondly, I saw there's an overworld like SMW so is it pretty linear or do you have to figure out where to go next? Keep in mind i know nothing of the game other it's praised everywhere, was on Xbox, and had almost no chance of being on a Nintendo platform so I prepurchased it day 1.

@nintendobynature No checkpoints, but the bosses and stages are pretty quick to beat, assuming you know what you're doing and you don't get hit too much. I will tell you though, it gets satisfying once you beat them! You might wanna try out co-op mode for a slightly easier time, as you only fail the stage/boss fight if both players are dead.

@nintendobynature The overworld map is pretty linear. It's pretty hard to miss where you need to walk to next.
It's been a while since I played it but, as I remember it a lot of the difficulty is akin to old NES boss mechanics. Each boss is a lengthy fight and they each have phases, and each of those phases has a pattern. So it's more figuring out the pattern and killing it whilst avoiding the attack pattern. The boss fights don't have checkpoints at the different phases that I recall, but you do jump right back into the fight after a death, so it's not like you have to play through a whole stage to get back to it.
I don't recall the platforming levels to be too bad at all (certainly nothing as difficult as some of the modern DKC stages). With Cuphead, the meat is in the boss fights.

@MarioLover92 cool Thanks. Doesn't sound that bad if the levels are short. Even if they're hard it sounds like I can handle it.

@subpopz very good my friend. Sounds like it's right up my alley. I grew up during the nes days so I'm super pumped for this one. Glad you can jump right back into the boss fights. That's the perfect way to develope a game imo

Question about this game: why is it considered a "Microsoft game"? It's made by an indie studio, and even available on Mac.

I love the art style.

I MAY be wrong but i don't think it's considered a Microsoft game. It's just a console exclusive or at least it was. It's like how hollow knight is a console exclusive. I could be wrong honestly

I thought Microsoft paid for it to happen or something...

Microsoft paid the studio (and may have even funded some of the game's development) to keep it exclusive to Xbox on the console side of things.

Unlike Crash on PS4 & Tomb Raider on Xbox it wasn't merely a year's exclusivity, but a permanent exclusivity deal, so the studio had to get Microsoft's approval to release it on Switch.

Hollow Knight is definitely not a console exclusive. You may be thinking of a different game.

As far Cuphead goes, it's a huge release, not just the game itself but what it means for the future of indie releases. Microsoft is opening the floodgates so that other formerly exclusive Microsoft games may appear on Switch. Ori and the Blind Forest has a very good chance of happening on Switch now. Now we can only hope for Rare Replay too and maybe Sunset Overdrive.

I don’t know what the excitement is about this game. Is it really that good?

Having recently played it on PC...

Yes. It is that good. Easily the best "boss rush" style action platformer ever made. Also one of the most visually stunning games I've played.

Well, this is only the case when you have a friend who's skilled in platformers, they will just drag you down if they die a lot. Saving your friend can be a very risky business considering how intense this game is. Players also deal 50% less damage in co-op when both players are alive.
