So I finished my NG+ in Rogue Legacy at around 100 or so children. I felt it was such a brilliant game that it warranted another playthrough; furthermore, I had more upgrades to pick up and the raised difficulty in the zones made it a new, challenging endeavor.
Upon finishing my NG+, I was quite surprised to see that Rogue Legacy offers a second NG+. I could not possibly fathom what could hook me for a 3rd go around, so I loaded up a new child and went into the castle again. And holy fuuuuuck - Rogue Legacy is CRAZY on the second NG+!
I'm talking 3-4 blue eye balls spewing red shit all over the screen, ice mages launching thousands of icicles, fire mages throwing the HUGE fireballs in packs of 3-4. All of this in the first 2-3 tiles I loaded up.
With that, I do believe I'm done with Rogue Legacy. It is a brilliant game I'd recommend to almost anybody, but yo, you'd have to be mad to go through with a second NG+. At level 165, I'm calling it quits, and I salute anybody who continues the grind for gold!
