Music felt like a mismatch? Oh no Ross, come on! You're the only guy I know that actually bothers to review games' soundtracks and Christopher Larkin did a great job on this! It sure does get pretty hard towards the end and the DLC are crazy hard. (as a side note, Ross listen to the "Nightmare King" boss fight music, it's awesome)

Game picks up speed after getting one of the first upgrades, which lets you dash. Incredible environments and the game nails the dark atmosphere part.

I kind of agree with Ross. The music is fine, if you listen to it alone; but while you're battling and almost ripping your hair off on hard battles (because you don't equipped things well or because the game starts to get hard), the music doesn't fit much. It's like hearing Alice: Madness Returns's Vale of Tears music while fighting a dragon (music's good, but not for this exact time).

Damn good game. I like it a lot. The learning curve is INSANE but once you get the hang of it, it feels really rewarding and I love it.

this game has no mouse support. wait, I think that didn't came out right. what I meant to say is that THIS PC GAME FROM 2017 HAS NO MOUSE SUPPORT. to put this into perspective: even the original, legendarily horrible Dark Souls port had basic mouse support (it felt awful to use, but it was functional enough for me to beat the game). no such luxury here — because having support for the primary input device of this platform is a luxury, apparently.

wait, you can't use the mouse buttons? that's odd but i don't think that's a deal breaker, this is the type of game i would play with a controller anyway, i mean this game style was born on consoles after all

so? other games of this genre don't have this restriction.

How would one even use a mouse in a game like this?  There's no manual aiming for any of your abilities.  The only thing the mouse would be useful for is menus, and it's not as if the menus are all that cumbersome.
