I have not played a single "Early Ass" game that impressed me - the SOLE game I tried in early access was Mercenary Kings, thinking Metal Slug + missions + build your own weapon = FUCK YES HERE'S MY CHECK FOR THIS WEEK SIRS.
Slow, plodding, timed, ridiculous, gathering missions... and when the game was "completed", it fixed NONE of the criticisms except for adding sound effects. Because apparently that's all that game was really missing. Fuck early access with a rusty nail.
That said, back to playing Shovel Knight - finally, a retro game that doesn't make bosses Mario-level easy.
