HIGH The boss in dungeon four.

LOW Inconsistent stabs AND falling off a ledge to be respawned next to a lantern ghost in the Silent Realm.

HIGH That moment when a puzzle that seemed to have no answer suddenly crystallized in my mind.

LOW Every single moment of the subplot with Chief Jakes is terrible.

Not for Kindling

LOW You can't stack the fire to insane proportions—no raging bonfires allowed.

HIGH Witnessing customer after customer go gaga over my ensembles.

LOW Realizing that their taste was dictated almost exclusively by brand.

WTF There are two men in the whole game: One is the store owner/love interest, the other is his butler.
