Zote isn't too bad once you learn his patterns. I think I beat every version of him...

Yeah, I probably just need to figure out the right responses to those patterns. His little mid-air mixup gets me about half the time, and the Zotelings become a real problem if I can't get them right away.

When did you both feel like Hollow Knight really got its hooks into you? It was really rough for me until I managed to reach and then beat the boss that gives the horizontal dash (this is fairly early), but every time I go back to it I just feel like I'm meandering woefully unprepared into a hostile world. It's fun for the shortest of bursts but so frustrating for me and I never feel like I was able to get over that hump. I want to like the game and it has flashes of fun and brilliance for me, but it never got to the point where it felt like the game I absolutely need to play.

Hmm...I don't think the hooks really sunk in until I unlocked a certain movement ability (wall jump), since that makes traversing the world much, much easier. Since the game is very much focused on exploration, more movement options means the map is that much more fun to explore.

I really advise looking for unexplored paths in your map and seeing if you can push further there, since that is most likely to get you to the upgrades you need. Also, the enemies and terrain are pretty unforgiving at first, but they aren't so bad once you learn their patterns and can kill/avoid them while traveling.

If you're a completionist, buy and use the map markers liberally to keep track of things you want to get to but can't access yet.

Hmm. I always felt like there was something new to discover. I had tons of markers on my map pinpointing places to return to or things that seemed out of place.

I don't think I ever felt like I was unprepared. Meandering, probably, but I liked the exploration aspect, that feeling of there always being something around the corner. It was something to work towards. So, even though I might not have been going anywhere in particular, it felt like I was progressing towards something, if that makes sense.

The dash certainly helped, but I think clearing a later area that sort of pinpoints where the rest of the game is supposed to go was that "hooked in" moment for me. Or beating the Mantis Lords, which lead to me doing some preliminary and unintentional sequence breaking.

It was fun throughout, until I got frustrated trying to get 100% before beating the final boss. But that was the completionist in me, I wouldn't blame the game too much for that.

Oh yeah, and don't be afraid of dying, especially at bosses. It will happen. A lot.

There's usually a bench nearby (3 or 4 rooms away at most), so just save there beforehand and try a few different charm combinations to see if something works.

Wife and I have been playing a lot of Overcooked 2 together and having tons of fun with it. I think after we get through all the DLC content, I'm gonna see if she wants to play Hyrule Warriors together.

I find Overcooked an absolute blast but in the original, the farthest I've ever seen is either the first level that has two trucks that split apart or one or two beyond it.

Overcooked 2 looks like a lot of fun but I've only seen a couple levels of it.

Hyrule Warriors is like 16 GB wtf. I wanted to try it with co-op last night, but it took way too long to download.

I... did not realize that Hollow Knight had more than one ending. Or DLC. I got the one where you fight the angel sunshine light thing? which seemed pretty satisfying. I guess that can stand a replay!

It definitely got its hooks into me right away, since I love down-slash chaining and the controls were [b]so[/b] tight. The sheer diversity in environments and enemies kept me excited pretty much the whole time.

I had a cold over the weekend and got (I think) most of the way through Dandara. It is fresh and innovative, and there are enough curveballs like the Dreamlands that I was into it.

I'm excited to start CrossCode too, though the only thing I know about it is that it's in the mold of a Mana game.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.
