Clicker Heroes 2 let down

Oh man, you hate to see it. A game I followed and was actively happy for was called Clicker Heroes 2. It is an idle game where you get stronger over time. Being a fan of Clicker Heroes 1, and seeing the game devs look like good people.

I pre-ordered CH2 (clicker heroes 2) since I wanted to try the game out. It was crazy paying for an idle game since the first one was free. But I was hooked on the project since it seem like there was a lot of passion behind this project.

When I got to play this game, there was not much to do once you got strong. You go to a world, level up and kill the mini bosses and kill the main boss. And this was back when the game first came “out” I dropped the game after a bit since progress would get reset back to zero, and would make me want to play it less.

So why am I talking about CH2 (Clicker Heroes 2) today? I had a itch to play this game after a long while, and I booted up the game and checked out the store to see the game went from positive to very negative. It is crazy. I backed this game without question, so this hurts to see.

And yes, there was not much to this game other than changing how to “play” this idle game. And given the extra fact that people had to pay to play this game was or should be a red flag for me but it was not sadly.

I just learned about this whole matter and it sucks. And the whole matter of resetting progress is very annoying but from what I saw, there was a blog post that detailed the state of this game but the post was in 2021 and the game had an update that seem to be the last one on June 16, 2021.

The blog post seems to be them blaming themselves using an outdated engine and from my understanding. They blamed the negative reviews for making their workflow slower and they got death threats, which I have to say is too far. You can be mad but sending death threats over a video game is crazy.

the blog post will be posted below.

And pretty much, the game seems completely dead and abandoned at this point, and should they return, I see the damage is far too great to recover since if they would come back to fix the game. Their rep and status as a game dev have been damaged enough that some people will be careful buying games from playsaurus.

And it is a shame too. I had such high respect for this team and to see and hear how this went down. It is a sad story. I wanted to see this game to the end. This is why you avoid early access games, as they can be a crapshoot. They get from point A to B or get abandoned after a year or two and that is the worse outcome. And the latter of the two choices seems to be common these days.

This will or has made me be careful of getting games from this game dev team after hearing and I will say be careful buying games from this game dev team unless there is clear proof their projects or games are close to complete.

Like, what is this? Clicker Heroes 2 is in such a sorry state, and I hate to see it like this. I should have never brought or pre-ordered this game and it is a shame that Clicker Heroes 1 is a better game than Clicker Heroes 2, and the first game is free.

If it is not clear, I recommend you don’t get this awful game, you are better off playing the first game.

That’s all I wanted to say.

Anime with Sura

So I have been brought onto an anime ride with Sura or Chris. This man invited me to watch anime. But some good anime to catch up on lost time as he plays elsword and watches anime.

It was interesting for sure. And even mick joined us in watching anime. I want to talk about the anime that I did watch and share my thoughts on them because why not? :3

Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

Magi: The Kingdom of Magic

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2: Part II

Blue Exorcist

Magi was interesting, it had a lot of good moments, and it had some dark moments. There was one moment in magi: kingdom that was pretty messed up with a waifu mind-controlling kids. But other than that, magi is a great anime to watch. You won’t regret it.

Reincarnated as a Slime and blue Exorcist are some animes I was going to watch back then but always remember seeing Reincarnated as a Slime being shown in ads but never watched it caused it looked silly. And blue Exorcist was an anime I watched on Toonami before they removed it from the lineup of anime they had at the time.

After they removed it, I dropped the anime and somewhat forgot about it. Until now. Reincarnated as a Slime was a great anime to watch. Had a lot of action, funny moments, and sad moments. Who knew an anime about a guy being Reincarnated as a Slime would be fun to watch.

Blue Exorcist was alright. There was action but it felt like a slice of life with a few action moments. The action scenes felt quick and fast. The main character pulls out his sword and wins. It’s not like one punch man levels of op but kind of close. However I view this anime, I still enjoy watching it.

Shiemi is not annoying. `’`

And now the nice anime I am watching is A Certain Magical Index. It looks like it might be a good anime but can’t say for sure at this moment. I can hope I will enjoy this anime.

Watching anime with sura has been fun. But sometimes the discord stream would lag or stutter and I have to imagine that it is elsword or something causing these issues. These issues do ruin the experience a bit but it’s not too bad.

Watching anime with sura is fun. Although most of the anime we do watch, sura has seen it before it seems and that’s the impression I get. it’s not bad but it’s not the same as watching anime together and both having a blind experience watching. It is still fun, don’t get me wrong.

There are some days when I just don’t watch anime with sura because I am busy or doing something else or just want to chill or I might not have the energy to watch anime and want to use it on other stuff but on the days I have energy and not busy, I have a good time watching anime.

That’s all I wanted to share with you. I’m not an anime blogger but I do like to watch anime when I get time but when it comes to details of a anime I don’t keep them in my mind, if anything, my memory for certain anime is like temp data. If i am not into it, i will forget it. :3 But I still enjoy watching anime.
