    has anyone figured out what the touch fuzzy get dizzy thing means?
    It's a reference to Yoshi's Island.

    If you touch the fuzzies that Cagney Carnation spits out in the last phase the screen blurs for a bit

    Edited:

    Also, it seems like they made his attack where he shoots his face out way faster. Its almost impossible to dodge now.

    Is it new or were there always parry-able crystals on Expert Robot?
    that'd be new. if that got added maybe Calla Maria got tweaked as well. I'll just check n c

    Edited:

    YYYYUP. the fireball fish sometimes shoots pink shots, and the eels sometimes shoot pink shots as well. and yea that Dr Kahl parry addition during the final phase is def new. Well that's my sole complaint addressed then. gj devs

    I don't see how it was unintended when Captain Brineybeard also gives you two options to avoid a similar attack.

    I've had so many S-Ranks failed because I was forced to try to dodge the goat attack, the spinning fireballs, and the imps all at the exact same time.

    The changes they made to Cala Maria are great, managed to S rank her on my second try. I was dreading getting to her before the patch came out since it was already hard enough to get 3 parries in her regular fight.

    I'm also pretty happy with the charge nerf, I'm actually trying out different weapons this time. I never used roundabout, lobber, or chaser at all before the update

    I know is probably a long stretch but I really wish there was something regarding Peacock from Skullgirls somewhere in this game.

    I would love to see it even if it was just a tiny reference.

    yea, and they got best indie debut and best indie game of the year as well. which also got them a shout-out from Canada's PM lol


    it's too bad so many people missed that it also won best indie game of the year after the show ended but eh it still got two awards during the show so whatever. also, Steamspy is back online again, so I'll be curious to see if this all doesn't net them another spike in sales, tho at this point I can't imagine many people are even left that haven't heard of the game lol.

    That was really fun. Birdhouse and Devil were the hardest for me, took about 20 hours from starting the save to S.

    Edited:

    I spent about 2 hours on the Devil, took a break and finally got him.. except I killed him too fast and didn't get one parry. Then I got it next try which felt amazing

    Hotfix V 1.1.4
    Fixed soft lock when the player parries and dies at the same time
    Fixed issue where game appears in a tiny resolution
    Fixed rare issue where loading screen plays forever
    Fixed Cagney Carnation face attack so it consistently has proper anticipation cue timing
    Legacy branch available too (speedrunners rejoice!)
    It contains all of the exploits and bugs of the launch version and is available for those who prefer to play that version
    Update:

    Idk if you guys are rating me late cause of another post, but I don't see anywhere in slabby's article post mentioning half of the sales (1 million) were Steam ones.
    If I'm missing something here sorry, just wanted to point out the 2 tweets aren't the same.

    Wut grim matchstick is pretty easy on expert compared to like, the first phase of wally warbles.




    I thought ducking to dodge the goat attack was intended honestly.

    It's funny cause somebody had the devs on to play it recently and Jared was using jump+dash.

    Just finished expert. It was weird how some of them they just added random things that made them way harder but quite a few of them weren't that much harder at all. The junkyard robot was not nearly as bad as I expected, although I had a decent strategy for it already.


    automerge wtf

    Automerge doesn't take effect if there's more than a few hours in between posts.

    Still of the opinion that the robot is not difficult.

    I'm down to only 2 bosses until I have S rank'd all of them. I've done everything on a keyboard so far, pretty proud of it.
    For the life of me, I cannot seem to avoid getting hit on King Dice's final phase on expert, I had zero trouble on regular but the increased speed of his cards seems to be just enough to throw me off.
    Also screw Wally Warbles, the amount of chokes I had on him are far more than what I would like to admit. A pushover on regular, but expert, he is his own isle for that matter.

    It took me several months after the game's release but I finally realized that the odd and numerous bug characters on the background of "Clip Joint Calamity" are yet another reference to Street Fighters and how it often features an audience watching the fighters beat the crap out of each other

    The whole "Clip Joint Calamity" fight is just a big Street Fighter reference. Took me a long time to realize that.

    Yeah, just fought the Devil for the first time last night, and I could have sworn that's what they wanted you to do with the way he arcs. Fucking devil.

    Just beat him today though.

    Super late but I just grabbed this game and I'm loving it so far, after all the awards and accolades I figured it was time to put myself through the hell that is Cuphead. Anyone know if MDHR is planning something else?

    I'm hoping that they will add more bosses as DLCs or something, I'd gladly pay out for it; considering that there are several cut bosses which could easily make up entire new levels.
    Otherwise, I hope that they introduce online co-op so I can help some of my friends out on certain bosses.
    There may be a sequel, who knows, its up to them and they are swimming in money now as 2 million+ copies were sold in the span of 3 months.

    Yea fingers crossed for that. In case people don't know, they've said they're looking into it a number of times, but there's nothing set in stone just yet.

    also on the topic of sales and all the constant CUPHEAD=DARK SOULS talk, right now Cuphead has sold more copies in 3 months than the first Dark Souls did after two and a half years lol. Granted that also includes PC sales as well for cuphead, but even if you only looked at console sales it's still done around half the sales in a tenth of the time frame. It's too bad nobody keeps track of indie game's first month(s) of sales, because I'm sure cuphead has set some records for the ridiculous speed of its sales.

    That, and they also sold another quarter of a million copies just from the recent steam Christmas sale. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Beat the game on Normal, not going further right now because I have 100 other games to play after 3 seasonal sales. I didn't have a lot of fun with Cuphead, mainly because I took the game as a challenge to my ego to beat.

    I like Cala Maria.

    1:05:14 for the award for character animator^ also I didn't realize at the time but cuphead was actually nominated TWICE under the animation in a video game category, once for each animator lol. This award went to the animator that did "Character: The Devil, Grim Matchstick, Beppi The Clown, Werner Werman". The other nominee was for the animator that did "Baroness Von Bon Bon, Hopus Pocus, Pirouletta, Giant, Tipsy Troupe, Lobster, Porkrind, Dragonfly, The Devil - DEATH" (also lmao not surprisingly the announcers forgot to say WHICH cuphead animator was the winner)

    and for the special achievement award:

    jump to 2:55 for the actual award part^

    A++
