Completed Sifu a 2nd time, still absolutely stunning. Play this, seriously.
I was also supposed to come in here to say I finished Neon White but my endgame save data is gone, lol. Ridiculous. I had two levels left.
The game is incredible, almost hypnotic. The music gets into you in an almost trance-like state (the non-dramatic, Hotline Miami kind) which is ideal for the nature of the game.
You get a couple of cards at a time and must make your way through the level as fast as possible. The cards have a primary ability (normally different kinds of shooting) and an ability that triggers when you discard it - one is a bomb that kills enemies and propels you upward, another gives you a godspeed dash forward, another a downward stomp that smashes stuff... The levels are designed around these abilities.
And like Hotline Miami, it feels like solving a high speed puzzle. When you get a level perfectly from beginning to end its an incredible sensation. There are some great, intricate levels in here.
Some stylistic touches make me think of Dreamcast-era games. Maybe Saturn too.
The story is weaboo drivel with annoying voice acting but who cares when the game is this good. Just, maybe wait for a patch if your in PS4/5. I still can't believe I lost all my progress, so dumb.
