Replayed and beat Jet Set Radio. Game kicks ass but GOD is it fucking hard. Fuck Yo-yo and his bullshit race
Finally, someone I can relate to.
There is one area in the race, just off the train lines, that you need to nail fucking PERFECTLY or you’ll fail. And not to mention the jump from the bridge that resulted in many a fail... And the spiral rail that, if you fall off, Yo-yo slingshots past you and wins.
Can I also mention that Combo is actually the worst character in the game? He is an actual slow and heavy tank that made his recruiting mission (mind you, a REQUIRED one) needlessly difficult.
The jump from the bridge fucking sucks because 9 times out of 10 the camera tries to do it's oh-so-epic cinematic replay and throws you off so you fall to the tracks and die. It doesn't help that even touching the guy sends you careening off in the opposite direction for no god damned reason. Like, I'm racing to get you into MY gang, and you fucking punch me in the face just so you can win? Fine, no gang for you, asshole.
Also, the Beat race is just annoying (comparatively not soul-crushing mind you), but one weird thing is that at certain points both he and Yoyo stop and wait for you before continuing. Not sure what the point even is with that.
Anyway I mostly still like the game aside from those things. I'm trying to emulate Future right now (because fuck the Xbox, seriously)
but it keeps crashing in the first cutscene and I don't know how to fix it.(I got it, it was disabling multi-core threading).
