Easy idea, Big change

Reviewed By: rainponcho on 15 Apr 2017

Simple idea that didn’t occur to me: run game in 60Hz NTSC mode. Turns out it plays just fine:

  • controls are more responsive than PAL and less input gameplay errors
  • Video is not choppy and smooth
  • Game script I prefer this one over the English beta
  • Doesn’t have any of the beta glitches
  • No noticeable errors because of region switch

No complaints that I can think of.
