Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve downloaded a huge number of demos from Steam’s Summer Game Festival event, so today I went through some of them. This is only a handful of the ones I picked up, so I’ll likely have more to talk about later, but this is what I’ve got for now. Arrieta of Spirits – 2D Zelda-like with some good but...

Re: Videogame News

A few little bits of info have crept out about Solar Ash through the Playstation blog, written by Alex Preston, the game's director. https://blog.playstation.com/2020/06/11/travel-into-the-void-in-solar-ash-coming-to-playstation-5/ One thing I've been kind of worried about this game being a roguelik...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The past few days I've been playing a little games called OneShot that is part of that big itch.io charity bundle. It's a very modest adventure game made in RPG Maker, but so far I'm liking it a lot. You play as this adorable little cat girl character, who suddenly wakes up in this eerie and dark wo...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I thought it was a pretty good show. There were a few things that didn't show up that I would have liked to see, but there was enough there that I liked the look of that I came away overall pretty positive on it. Kena looks really good. Very impressive aesthetically and looks like it has some cool g...

Re: Videogame News

CrossCode finally got a console release date. 9th of July. Really enjoyed this when it came out on PC a few years ago, and felt like it didn't get the credit it deserved. I highly recommend people try this out. Great combat, clever and challenging puzzles, charming characters, fun use of genre trope...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After beating El Shaddai I've kept my 360 at hand and have been continuing to dabble with that. Mostly with Forza Motorsport 4, but I also put some time in to Forza Horizon as well. Even though FM4 is more of a priority because that isn't playable on XB1, it's interesting to compare how FH1 feels to...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Currently going through Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death again. It's a pretty fun game, but it's clearly not very polished. It's one of those games that makes up for its flaws through sheer enthusiasm though, so it's hard to hold its problems against it too hard. It's aping the (old) God of War g...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I played the demo for Cris Tales that is on GOG right now. I wasn't a fan of it, but I can see it being really appealing to some people. It's an indie turn-based RPG with a very fairy tale/storybook aesthetic to it, and a time travel conceit to it. The art is very nice, with a sort of pop-up book lo...

Re: What's Out This Week?

It launched on Apple Arcade a while back, so it’s not that new to fans of the series I guess. That's definitely part of it, but that release was only part of the game, branded as being the first "episode". Not sure how much of the game that was, it sounds like perhaps it was about half of it. Now t...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Shantae and the Seven Sirens came out the other day, but it seems to have not gathered any attention at all. I've seen basically no mention of it.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The other day I decided to dig out the 360 again and have a mess around with that. Main thing I've been playing is El Shaddai . I've been wanting to revisit this one again for a while, and I actually gave it a go at the start of the year, but stopped playing before long as I found it had an awful gl...

Re: Videogame News

Some new information has shown up for the Nier Re[in]carnation (the mobile game that was announced a while back). Turns out the scenario will not be written by Yoko Taro, but it will be written by some of the usual Nier writing team, and Taro will have some level of oversight to tie it all together....

Re: What's Out This Week?

That's been rumoured to be the case for the Metroid Prime Trilogy for years now. It's supposedly been ready to go for ages. My theory was that they were waiting until Prime 4 was closer to get people interested in the series again, but since that got pushed way back to restart development, they push...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The PSP version of the game was really impressive, technically, looked really nice, but it was such a missed opportunity with such a bare bones release. No career mode, nothing really aside from single races. Seemed more of a tech demo than anything. Didn't that version have an infamously troubled ...
