-I am super glad I read about this game and the patience I need for it, especially after hitting the first brick wall for me (Carpe Demon + Doggies). Still, seeing how they can, while mid-air, alter trajectory to still come straight down on you as you're trying to get up those stairs...
-I should never click on challenge/walkthrough videos, because watching them lvl1 through content to get gear is disheartening! Well I suppose this game has some megaman-2 kind of muscle memory and mechanics learning which allows for feelings of empowerment.
Welcome! There /is/ definitely some muscle memory and mechanics to learn and get skilled at. You will probably run into bosses that take hours for you to defeat. I would encourage you to just keep trying new things. Try to avoid watching LPs and solution videos - you'll get so much better at the game because of it. Also, once you kill something that has taken you ages to beat, it's extremely satisfying and it's not something you get to experience in games much these days. You also only get one shot at that feeling, so don't waste it.
