      I wonder: How has anyone beaten Super Hexagon?

        I've beaten it, but that's mostly because I started playing before joining this forum. I also have slightly above average reflexes, so that probably also helped.

        I dunno, the thought of Caesar or Caligulia having space flight might make for an interesting RPG.

        Caligula declares war on Apollo and attacks the sun. I know that he never really declared war on Neptune as some accounts claim, but imagining Roman soldiers stabbing at waves still makes me laugh.

        I don't know, certain brands of cat food might be quite good if you were desperate enough. I mean, it's mostly just meat and jelly\sauce.

        When you're so poor you can't afford much, so you make a filling dinner using ketchup, random seasonings, leftover noodles, sandwich bread, and a little bit of leftover butter.

        Limitations and Desperation breed creativity.

        leaving the mechanics as it's own separate matter that merits it's own treaty.... Portal was Valve's revolution of the BSP format.
        the only engine capable of rendering quality similar to Source, at the time, was Unreal. And you probably know how demanding it is, for rendering said quality.
        and don't even get me started on CryTek.

        I played it years ago for the same reason. "What's the fuss about?". The dark humor got me. Then, the puzzles. It did something I've never seen done before or since. I WANTED to complete the puzzles. WITHOUT A GUIDE. I would feel SMART for completing them. Portal 2 solidified the story much better, though the puzzles weren't as good.

        That bit about Castlevania: Symphony of the Night not only cuts out the ending, but nearly half of the game! (Still a great game regardless, but yeah, they could've given more hints)

        Or maybe you were talking about Dawn of Sorrow. That one also had this. You then realise there are extra 2-3 stages to the game that lead to the true ending.

        Oh my God, and why did he even need to wear that charm? It didn't seem to alter the events going on around him or protect him from the villains Magic, it just makes Julius and Alucard come in and bail his ass out. Why couldn't they just do that without the charm?

        the game actually does tell you to put it on, though.

        Conversely, imo, it also takes away that oh so satisfying sense of character progression. I despise level scaling personally. It's like sucking the fun out of a game.

        If EDF 5 goes on sale, I'd recommend picking that up, if you want the duplicates to "level up" the weapon. Early on in the game, you can get the starter weapon to be fairly powerful for even a Level 0 weapon. I got it nearly maxed out and it was more powerful than a default Level 4 weapon I had. It allows you to "gain power" despite the level restrictions in multiplayer :D It's pretty cool.

        See, I just thought there was a way to level up the weapon. Not always with duplicates, but with other drops. But still glad to know how it works. BTW, what are the medals? Is that just showing what levels I've completed at what difficulty?

        The medals show what difficulty you completed the level on, with which class. The game actually wants you to beat the game with all four classes... on all five difficulties. Not sure if it matters all that much to do so unless you just want all the unlocks and achievements. But, it's a good way to let you know what you need and give you some goals.
