I can see it now: "FUCK YOUR WIIUSTATIONS, THIS IS THE X FUCKING BOX, AND YOU WILL BUY ONE, OR I WILL PISS DIRECTLY ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOUR HEADS! THINK I'M JOKING? ASK JACK AND REGGIE! REGGIE'S BODY ISN'T FUCKING READY, IT'S FUCKING WET, IS WHAT HIS BODY IS! FROM MY PISS!"
I'm using a 4770, and there's definitely some slowdown when shit gets crazy (weirdly, it lasts for a couple of runs after that as well), but it's a consistent, non-jerky slowdown, so I actually don't really mind since it gives me a slight advantage. I have a better card, but I want to wait until I build my new machine to break it in.
Nice write up. This is one of my all-time favorite games. Gameplay-wise, it doesn't hold up as well as some of the more well-known classics, but as an experience it is simply fantastic.
I always wished that there was more in the way of extended fiction for this, since I absolutely love the idea of the Neverhood pre and post Klogg. I mean, there's the Hall of Records, but I'm more interested in the day-to-day of the Neverhood itself.
It just occurred to me that I haven't really been listening to any 2013 stuff at all. A couple of songs here and there, but mostly I've been listening to 2012 and earlier. (doesn't hurt that last year was absolutely awesome release-wise)
It really depends. I take in a ton of horror, so it takes a lot to really get me, but there are a couple games (Amnesia and White Day) that truly get my hackles up. I'm not going to lie, White Day is almost too much for me. There's just something about it that puts my nerves into overdrive.
