Death? Nooooooooo

Posted by MooseyMcMan

I almost beat Olmec today.

I know that has little to do with what Patrick said in this video today, but whatever.

Oh, good! I showed up late and couldn't watch much of today's Spelunking because I was too busy killing Yama and then falling to my death trying to make it to the exit.

DAMN IT.

Posted by Vuud

I got to the gold city for the first time a few days ago and didn't make it out. Now I just need to do it on a daily.

I miss Spookin With Scoops :(

Edited by Zacagawea

So what's up with Scoops walking into a shop that has climbing gloves and a cape in it and being all coy about it? Mr. E-sports got some big britches now, huh?

Lol, at 9:50 he uses a bomb to get the shotgun out of the dirt when he was holding a mattock.

You can't be done with this feature yet, Patrick. There are still so many more ways to die... >:D

Is the yeti level music the best music ever composed? It's gotta be up there.

Posted by cooljammer00

I remembered why I stopped watching this feature live and without knowing how things went beforehand: watching Patrick pull these stunts is giving me an ulcer, as I mutter "God DAMNIT, Klepek!" over and over to myself.

Wow, that really was an unfortunate magma man, but I think Patrick got greedy and didn't go for the exit when he had the chance. Except I guess he was trying to find Anubis, so he had to go back...

Posted by cooljammer00

@patrickklepek Prepare for tons of people coming out of the woodwork to complain about your future use of the term "roguelike".

Posted by pyromagnestir

Oh, right, and if the ghost kills you when you have the ankh you still get revived. If it's the level with the head then you are revived inside the head.

Posted by MeanSoup

Man, he's missing all that sweet, sweet critter blood!

@cooljammer00: I'm sure he'll redeem himself by playing something like SLASH'EM.

Its good, but fuck no. Not even close.

T'was greed killed the beast.


Edit: La-Mulana is hard as hell, but really well made. Music is great too!

He keeps saying he got to Yama, did I miss an episode? The last one (in the CAH offices) he died in the Ice Caves and the one before that died in Hell...

He got to hell twice in that episode you speak of and the first time he made it to Yama.

@patrickklepek

It seems like you're set on playing La-Mulana, which is cool... but if this feature goes on long enough and you end up playing more and more games, I highly recommend checking out Dungeons of Dredmor.

It's pretty different from Spelunky, but it's got permadeath & has a whole bunch of really interesting loot...

Steam says I've sunk 32 hours into it already, yet I'm still not sick of it. It's a pretty fantastic game. :)

Plus, the game is built around the player trying new & different strategies and seeing how far they can get, so I feel like it would fit into the feature perfectly.

Ya there's so much better jazz(and music in general), i.e. Dave Brubeck's Take Five comes to mind immediately as a better song.

Not to say Spelunky doesn't have very nice tunes, because it does.

Edited by DaddyCabinet

I just beat Olmec in adventure mode for the first time. Thanks for the tips Patrick. Now begins my road to hell.

Posted by PDXSonic

Watching (and interacting) with chat is why I like this morning stream. Also seeing Patrick get reminded why Spelunky is a difficult game is fun too.

I mean...that's OKAY...but it's not from a VIDEO GAME is it???

Patrick, love the idea you have for a new show. Count me in!

Posted by Curious_George

A roguelike feature sounds really cool. I'd watch it as long as there is some variety.

Posted by Dryker

What happened to doing Banner Saga!?

Edited by beard_of_zeus

It's not really a roguelike at all (more a Metroidvania coupled with Fez-level note taking and puzzle solving unless you are some sort of savant), but I approve of the idea of going down the La Mulana rabbit hole. Maybe Patrick will get farther than I did!

I was trying to get as far as I could without consulting a walkthrough, and I quit playing when I got completely stuck instead of breaking my self-inflicted vow. The combination of the amount of freedom the player is given to explore a fairly big world, Metroidvania-style items that can open new paths, and incredibly cryptic puzzles makes for one hell of a difficult game. There were many times where I couldn't tell if I was stuck because I didn't have the right item or if it was a solvable puzzle, but I just wasn't paying attention to some minute detail on the other side of the world. But despite all that, it's a cool fucking game. I'm pretty proud of how far I got - just getting figuring out how to get to the first boss is an accomplishment in and of itself.

Posted by BaconGames

As someone who played a ton of Spelunky and went to La Mulana, I have to say that La Mulana plays doesn't even begin to touch Spelunky in terms of how fair and sharp it plays. Even the original free-ware Spelunky isn't good enough to earn what Spelunky does.

Today was my first visit to Yama and he sent me to the spikes!! Nooooo!!

Edited by HerbieBug

Binding of Isaac is a great choice. Word of caution should you choose to play it: it is not the best idea to install the DLC right away as doing so will significantly increase the difficulty of the entire game and you cannot turn it off without using a mod tool. Trying to learn Isaac with Wrath of the Lamb content active can be very frustrating.

Yes yes yes! Do Binding of Isaac runs Patrick!

Woooooo, just beat Yama on my first ever trip to Hell. Wooooooo!!!

Posted by Pigborg

the music in the dark level really reminds me of the music from jolly roger bay in mario 64

Posted by Dizzyhippos

Patrick should do an endurance run of an older y's game, not exactly a rogue like but hard as fuck

That explains a lot. I wanted to like it, but I just lost patience with the game after awhile. Waaay too much variance in luck.

After playing it for awhile now, I feel like Spelunky has the perfect balance for a game of its genre. The game gives you enough control and authority over what happens that if you screw up it's your own fault 99% of the time.

FTL is somewhere in-between Binding of Isaac and Spelunky, but it's still a little too punishing for me. Still a great game though.

@patrickklepek I'd also suggest Sword of the Stars: The Pit if you've got the stomach for more brutally hard games with procedurally generated levels. One of the unnoticed gems of 2013.

I'd also say it's as close to the idea of a pure roguelike as I've played in recent memory, if I was confident in what the definition of roguelike even currently is...in MY current definition anyway.

Posted by paulunga

Was that ejaculation of lava coupled with the word "premature" on purpose? XD

Posted by Edmundus

Would be awesome to see Patrick play through La Mulana. Love the music in that game.

Posted by pyromagnestir

@pyromagnestir: I just did the same damn thing. It seems so cruel.

There should be a Spelunky support group on the forums or something.

Edited by blabbermouth64

Yes to binding of Isaac.

Posted by Shadowjester

@patrickklepek Great job on this feature. Thanks to you I gave this game a second chance and just last night defeated Yamah. Something I probably would never have done without your example here.
