"Oh look at me, I'm making a forum post to wave my e-dick around about how cool I am playing the game on hardcore wheeeeee"
I'm just curious if anybody else is playing it on hardcore and what their thoughts are.
I personally don't like how playing it on HC turns the platforming into Super Meat Boy. Those god damned color mushrooms spew poison crap instantly with no delay, and there's no hitstun recovery on getting damaged by spikes so it's insta-death; you never get an opportunity to recover and jump out of the spikes.
Other than that, hardcore combat is really fun and I really enjoy the extra challenge it gives; it feels like it justifies the game by making me super powerful but still making my mistakes very punishing. I don't have any money because I keep needing health items for the single mistake I invariably make.
