Never want to play this game again. This game is not a 9/10 or 10/10 because of the garbage jumping/downward slash mechanics.

Hitting the centipede below to get across is like pulling a f***ing slot machine. Sometimes it works and a lot of the time it doesn't. I've literally been doing this section over and over again and it's literally random if I'll get across or not.

I want to like this game, I want to praise it etc but I can't forgive these horrendous mechanics.

Playing on PS4 btw...

I could do that pogo jumping on that centipede for literally hours if the distance was infinite and my hands being arthritic was not a factor.

There is literally nothing random about it, it goes at a set speed the whole time and it's up to you to keep your pace and rythm. If you struggle that badly with it, you can put on longnail or mark of pride to make your swings significantly larger and it will make it even easier.

Great news then!

The platforming gets even worse later on, at a certain new area!

Look forward to it!

If it's downward slash heavy I'll cry. Anything else and I'm good

It's very pogo-heavy. It is, however, 100% optional unless you want one of the true canon endings.

That's not cheating. It's called not being a masochist.

I did. But I'm probably going to skip path of pain as I see no fun in it at all

I just beat Radiance for the first and last time. FFS that was miserable. I've been trying to beat it for several days now. Never again, no more. Fighting Hollow Knight every time was tedious as all hell too.

I'm done with this game! Rofl. It's a shame though, I do like aspects of it, but that Radiance fight makes me never want to replay the game again.
