Surprised this game isn't simply F2P, btw. I'm playing it via PS+, so it didn't cost anything, but normally... what do you get for $20 off the bat?

is there any way to enable mics on this so 8 year olds can hear me screaming obscenities at them?

and has anyone successfully complete the course where you have to beat the rising clime yet?

thomasintrouble, Friday, 7 August 2020 08:46 (three years ago) link

That one is my bane! Haven't made it to the top two floors of that yet. Keep dropping hard on the Y "balance beam" section

I saw a good technique for the disappearing pads final course on Limmy's stream, not that I'll ever get that far because I'm a fall guy.

The troll thing of players hanging around the finish line to get in the way and pull players back makes me laugh.

I like how the game makes you make 2 second alliances with your rivals for your common good e.g. on the seesaws.

Losing your tail at the last second is the rage quit trigger for me.

Is it actually possible to be exceptionally good at this game? You're at the mercy of the herd in so many rounds.

It's possible to perfect strategy and technique on many of the courses to improve your odds but there's a lot of luck involved.
The combination of luck and skill and silliness gives it a really broad user base to attract. Plus it's a format that allows for expansion once we get bored with picking the wrong fucking door every time.

Good tips! Though I thought for a second that was a parody, the guy's look is so on-the-nose...

Nhex, Friday, 7 August 2020 19:27 (three years ago) link

lol, that's grand poo-bear, arguably the best super mario player in the world

Played this a bit last night, really fun! I don't know how I'll feel about the game in a month, but for the next few days I'll be playing loads, I'm sure.

I'm awful at anything that requires pushing giant balls though, the physics are still opaque to me.

If there's any question about luck or skill in terms of winning a show, I just won my first two tonight, and that's my second day of playing. The first time, I was in second at Fall Mountain, and the guy ahead of me was literally standing still on the edge of the path to the crown, right under it, and I managed to jump over him to snatch the crown. (Maybe they had network issues?) The second win, the final was Royal Fumble with a total of 5 players and I STARTED OUT WITH THE TAIL. In fact, even though I lost it a few times, I still held onto it for a total of probably a full minute.

Incidentally, I figured out that to grab a tail, you just need to have R2 held down while being somewhat close to the tail haver -- you don't need to actually touch them.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Sunday, 9 August 2020 06:39 (three years ago) link

but can you hold R2 and then run near them, or do you have to first press R2 when you're a certain distance from them?

The GOAT Harold Land (Karl Malone), Sunday, 9 August 2020 06:44 (three years ago) link

I think the first one, though I think the trade-off is that when you're holding R2, you run more slowly.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Sunday, 9 August 2020 14:46 (three years ago) link

Over a couple of days everybody realized you should use the Dive button, which has made things even goofier. Now there's even more collisions and bumping around.

Nhex, Sunday, 9 August 2020 19:52 (three years ago) link

I found a shortcut in the Whirlygig! In the middle of the level where you have to climb up on two platforms, you can instead ride the escalator ramp and jump to get straight onto the top platform.

Also, the competition today has gotten a lot fiercer!

Garry Shambling (Leee), Monday, 10 August 2020 03:54 (three years ago) link

ooh, def gonna try that.

Nhex, Monday, 10 August 2020 09:47 (three years ago) link

I wish I could play Slime Climb twice in a row. I'm so close

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 10 August 2020 17:25 (three years ago) link

I am hilariously bad at Slime Climb.

That moment when you mistime your jump at the end of Fall Mountain, scream and hope that it doesn't sound like an "I'm being murdered" scream, then push that thought to the back of your mind as you dive right back into the next episode.

rn I find watching FG streams much more entertaining (and less soul-destroying) than playing myself.


Garry Shambling (Leee), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 23:51 (three years ago) link

really enjoying Limmy streaming fall guys, he's bad at it and gets incredibly frustrated, a good laugh

I feel like being good at this is beside the point a bit

The Scampos of Young Werther (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 23:55 (three years ago) link

Now that I've got my hot dog costume, I feel much less motivated to play (even though I've played this every day for the last couple weeks).

Out, vile jelleee (Leee), Sunday, 16 August 2020 18:05 (three years ago) link

Still playing it every day but only for like 20 minutes or so. A nice appetizer.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Sunday, 16 August 2020 18:14 (three years ago) link

Finally got a Hexagone win :D

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 17 August 2020 01:12 (three years ago) link

I won another crown and guess what this game is fun again!

Hex-a-gone just pwnz me; I haven't played much 3D platforming so even though I usually go with the "drop all the way to the last level and start creating huge holes for your opponents to fall into" tactic, I so far have always managed to eliminate myself that way.

Out, vile jelleee (Leee), Wednesday, 19 August 2020 21:13 (three years ago) link

I've been getting a lot of unbalanced teams which is really a drag. It was 6 on 5 in Fall Ball ... that's almost a guaranteed loss unless the other guys suck.

Anyone still playing?

Ruth Bae Ginsburg (Leee), Saturday, 5 September 2020 19:43 (three years ago) link

I stopped playing this when I maxed out the season pass but I've been enjoying poobear's fall guy tournaments

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 14 September 2020 18:58 (three years ago) link

The new variants look pretty cool. Might dip back in

one year passes...


I assume that you'll still need to pay for your system's online service, though.

Santa Barbarous (Leee), Monday, 16 May 2022 18:36 (two years ago) link

I'm kinda surprised it's still going strong. F2P seems like the natural direction for Fall Guys.
Found it fun for a little bit when it came out, but how have people not burned out quickly? With Fortnite they constantly lure people back in with licensed character cosmetics, so I can understand that. But I'm too impatient, have having to queue up for games like this vs. phone game dopamine hits.
