Spiral Knights

So has anyone played this yet? It's actually surprisingly fun. It's kinda like a simple PSO mixed with Zelda? I dunno but it's very charming and cute and fun to get a group together and just kill crap.

I LOVE SPIRAL KNIGHTS

I can't play it as much as I'd like though. Stupid Energy restrictions and the ever inflating cost.

Feel free to add meh: Kiyobi

It is. Soloing this game is boring very fast.

Also a bit difficult and it feels unrewarding.

I heard about this on Ars Technica during the closed beta, they even gave away 50 keys when the article ran. I really enjoyed PSO but never had the chance to play it online so if this game is in the same vein, I might give it a shot. It's nice to see Sega supporting smaller devs, even if they aren't making the most of their own in-house groups.

I'm hooked. Which is a problem considering the whole "energy" system.

The music in the trailer is the music heard in the game (The Battle themes and Haven city music if I remember correctly). So cool :D

Yeah I've been playing it, catch me as Lorenith if you can I guess?


If you find you can't afford the trade rates for crowns>crystal energy and don't want to use real cash to buy some, there are a few ways to help a bit.

Mainly by using less energy, the loot doors are very rarely worth it so don't bother opening them. Be wary of danger rooms, and if able let a friend revive you rather than using energy (as a general rule if you are energy reviving you shouldn't do it more than once or twice, it's more efficient to just lose all your heat and start over).

Just doing that can save you alot of energy, and that is often all the difference between finding enough crowns to trade for 100 more CE to keep playing.

Edit: It's also worth noting that you can't "friend" people as far as I'm aware without being on the same screen as them, it's like that in other OOO games as well. So if you guys all start playing you'll want to set up a meeting area to friend each other.
