saw some thread on resetera where there were some really dope deals for used games via redbox

attempted to get ffxv for 10 bones and went to pick it up and it was a paper cut out of a disc

probably serves me right for trying to play ffxv

I think you and endo should work together and come up with a percentage distribution of how much of it is a metroidvania and how much is Dark Souls-like, and any other categories.
