OH MY GOD THIS GAME IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL

I WILL NEVER SEE MOST OF IT BECAUSE IT’S SO HARD I CAN’T EVEN GET PAST THE FIRST LEVELS

Already I had an internal rage attack when some article on Cuphead claimed it was done in the style of mid-20th century animation.

No it's not. It's 30's. Done primarily in the style of Fleisher/Warner Bros. of that time, same-era Disney elements thrown in where appropos.

My God, I'm that kind of animation nerd.

Haha, yeah, I picked it as 30's. And really well done, too, right down to their sound design and typography.

The animation itself is fucking delightful too. Like, the little bounce in Cuphead and Mugman's movements… little details all over.

Aside from hardness (and oh boy is it hard) my biggest criticism is that it can get too busy in 2p to follow what you're doing, and Cuphead and Mugman are not distinct enough from one another. Several times I accidentally found my eye watching the wrong character. I was not the dude collecting the coin… I was the one dying…

And not to mention that a lot of backgrounds used camera technology Fleisher himself invented. Mainly the one that's basically parallax scrolling.

God that History of Animation class was the best class ever. Not to brag, but it was taught by Steve Segal. Cartoonbrew, you might've heard of him. XD

But seriously, on one hand I'm considering getting this for my dad for Christmas because he likes these old-timey cartoons and might find this cool, but on the other hand this kind of game is something that'd be completely new to him and given its difficulty he may quit on it. (Although, he did manage to play and finally beat Simpsons Hit & Run on PC, and that game's Nintendo Hard, so I can at least see him stick with Cuphead up until beating it at its easiest settings.)

I feel bad for only buying stuff on Steam that's on sale these days, but I barely have enough time to play anything anyways. I haven't even beaten Sonic Mania once yet.

Definitely going to blast through this eventually at some point though. It's so gorgeous.

It looks amazing, of course.

Definitely difficult, but some of it is because of RNG bullshit, not actually being difficult. Two fights have screwed me over because of RNG so far.

And no fast travel system on the overworld at all from what I can tell makes it really slow to go from world 1 to world 2 and back if you want to redo fights. Not sure why that wasn't thought about, really.

I'm absolutely in love with the art style from what I've seen so far.

I have it in my Steam wishlist, but I might have to wait until it goes on sale or something before I go purchasing it. It is definitely something I want to play though, and look forward to doing so.

cuphead is a ton of fun and mixes what I love about dark/demon's souls's boss fights with contra (and I guess gunstar heroes? though I've never played that so!!!). it's sharp, precise, and feels fucking phenomenal when you pull off some baller shit

also the flying birdhouse fight might be one of my favorites so far, but we'll see--just got to world 3 and crushed the queen bee

also found out you can skip forms if you deal enough damage. in my case it was doing a super on the bee at the start of her book reading animation leading into her final form, followed by a shit ton of spread gun

I just got this game as a gift. HOLY SHIT I'm loving this.

I guess I"m not really turned off by the difficulty, considering I've been trying to play through HOLY DIVER. Then again, I think I am a masochist.

So far I've actually beaten a couple of the boss fights and the first platforming stage. Not bad for starters I think. I know those are going to be the easiest though.

so i guess i'm done with cuphead forever

also all s-ranks isn't tied to any achievement which is nuts--the last achievement i was missing was beating a boss using only the mini-plane's bullets. took a couple attempts but i'm still salty about not being officially acknowledged for this thing i busted my ass over!

cuphead's real good y'all

Well done, Dorito!

I had to accept defeat very early on. I tried, I really like the game, but I am very bad at it.

The art is gorgeous, perhaps I'll have to watch a playthrough.

I have the same problem, I bought it because the presentation is phenomenal and I really wanted to play it, but man, I'm just no good at all.
