06:23 pm - Recordkeeping: Sideway - New York INCOMPLETE
Got this for... free? I think? A Playstation Plus giveaway of some time past. Finally tried it out. Looked okay enough: Young hip triangle-bearded parkour-man gets turned into graffiti by an evil billboard (okay) and ends up in the "Sideway", a graffiti dimension where you move along flat surfaces.

Unfortunately the controls are just... gummy. Any game where I push the jump button and have time to glance down in confusion to make sure I did hit the jump button before my dude is in the air? That's not a good platformer.

Apparently this is four hours long or something but I just don't want it on my plate. Platforming is a genre where your basic skill is JUMPING how do you get jumping WRONG. I can only foresee frustration coming from this. Better to write it off fast.
