Rayman

Kinda surprised, in all honesty. Those who know me know that as far as games go, platformers are neither my strong suit nor even games I really enjoy. I don't dislike them, but I tend to find most platformers (like just about anything with Mario in the name) really lacking in character.

Rayman Origins, however, is quite a breath of fresh air in the stagnant room that is 2D side-scrolling platforming. Every musical score is fantastic, the environments are beautiful, the controls handle fluidly, and the toony style and character expressions give the game personality and a fun atmosphere.

Plus, I'd totally do Rayman. For srsly. Even with him being a quadruple amputee with his hands and feet magically floating in proximity to his body.

As of posting this, Steam is offering Rayman Origins for free with the pre-purchase of Rayman Legends, available to play in about 3 and a half days. I picked it up despite not being a fan of platformers due in part to Yahtzee's review of Origins, which was admittedly more than a year ago, done in conjunction with Super Mario 3D land, but it really stuck with me. I don't always agree with everything he says about every game, but I do respect him as a game reviewer, so I figured it would be worth a try. Plus you get two games for cheaper than what one game usually costs nowadays :P

The environments are all fun so far X3 Jungle world, sky world, giant beach-side resort world, pirate/underwater world X3 Just to name the ones I've gotten to so far

And Rayman is just... really cute in that cartoony sort of way :P

No, I simply told you that comparing it to Mario (which is what you were doing) was no way to go about getting me to like it X3 I do admit, however, to stating repeatedly that platformers are generally not games I particularly enjoy.

To be honest, I'm not fully sure why I decided to pick it up. Just figured it deserved a fair chance, I guess :P

I was comparing it to Mario, yes. But it was more as a point of contrast. :P

However, blerghblergh, disagreements we had. The important thing is that we can bond about how much we like Rayman Origins =D
