I’m playing God of War right now and it is frustrating the shit out of me. It’s bringing back memories of all of the 8bit platformers I loathed but couldn’t put down.
The touch attack.
What’s the touch attack you say? We all know it. It’s the one where you walk into a Koopa Troopa and die. Not a Koopa Troopas attack, just rub his shoulder. Or you land on the side of a giant tank in Mega-Man and die. Or you walk into a running commando in Contra and die. All of these seemingly the result of contact, not an attack.
Do video game enemies has posion skin? The kind that kills instantly upon contact, throwing your body high into the air upon absorbtion?
Right now I’m playing God of War and am climbing these maddening knife towers where there are these knives spinning around very slowly. Obviously if you get CUT by one it’s gonna hurt, but if I happen to touch the BOTTOM of one, the flat side of the knife, it send me HURTLING back down to the bottom of the tower with a huge gush of blood.
Fucking touch attacks. I hate them…
