I've been waiting since the Sound of Play episode for the Switch release, not having heard of it before then. Definitely sounds up my alley.

Might pick up Dicey Dungeons later in the year. It's the new one from Terry Cavanagh and looks interesting.

I'd love to replay the whole Walking Dead saga on Switch (having only played seasons one and two, previously) but it doesn't seem like the versions available are the updated ones, and it would cost over £50 for the whole lot!

I don't want to replay it that much.

EDIT: Sorry, that post seems really out of place. It's because seasons two and three are coming to Switch this week, having only had one and four available up to now.

Seems it’s mostly updates for me this week.

Stellaris on console gets the Utopia add on today as it slowly inches it’s way towards parity with the pc build.

Nightwolf joins Mk11 for kombat pass players.

And best of all, Role Queue finally comes to Overwatch ranked games (in beta form anyway). No more games where I’m the only person playing a non-dps hero! Woo!

Dicey Dungeons seems to be doing well, critically.

I remember playing the alpha of that, scratched the same itch as slay the spire but I wasn't feeling it enough to put it on my wishlist.

Speaking of Slay the Spire, out on XBO today, and it’s on gamepass as well.

I showed my mate the two Metal Wolf Chaos trailers earlier today and this turned into the biggest laugh I've had in weeks. That game's humor and presentation style seems like it's completely up my alley and I can't wait to dive headfirst into it as soon as I'm done dodging pink detritus. :P

Hah, Remnant and Hunt releasing on the same day? What a funny coincidence. Those games are not only quite similar, they have an intertwined history too.

Hunt started as a project being made by Crytek USA, AKA Vigil Games, the Darksiders devs after they got bought up by Crytek. It was their project, but it wasn't long until the studio fell apart through mismanagement and issues over pay and such, putting development on ice. So after a while Crytek decided to reboot the project in to what it is now by themselves. I don't think much of the original game is still there, but it still carries over some of the original concept. Meanwhile, one of the two studios that was formed in the wake of Crytek USA falling to pieces, Gunfire Games, went on to create Remnant. It's almost as if they wanted to have their own jab at reviving that project, taking it in a different direction too, while still being a spooky/horror themed co-op shooter.

Remnant is actually set in the same universe as one of their previous games though, Chronos. A VR dungeon crawler thing. I was always a bit disappointed that never came out with a non-VR version. It looked kind of interesting, and like it would be possible to do that.

Super Dodgeball Beats looks...interesting. Will have to see some reviews about that, or watch someone play it.

Sega Ages Puyo Puyo and Sega Ages Space Harrier are insta-buys for me on Thursday this week. Never played the original Puyo Puyo so excited about that. Seeing a trailer for Space Harrier was enough to suck me right back in again... still haven't learnt my lesson after all these years and all these versions!

Black Desert a.k.a. the game that slew my graphics card.

It's a good entry point for an MMO Novice, if you were so inclined - good tutorials and some interesting systems.

It has a great job/profession system, where you can hire people to mine raw resources, farm crops, create gunpowder/jewellry/weapons etc. I had a great supply chain going where I mined iron and tin in one area, farmed crops in another area to turn into beer to pay my workers, transported both to a third area where I smelted and had people producing bronze axes that I sold on the marketplace to (I assume) real players. They could chop down trees far quicker than iron axes. I was making maybe 20 thousand gold on each production cycle, surviving, a small but rewarding return on investment, it was great!

I came back to it after a month's break, and the game had given me twenty six million gold as a loyalty bonus. :x

I expect anybody who was interested might have already played it on PC/Xbox, where it is pretty cheap now.

:lol:

Remnant: From the Ashes sounds really intriguing from the reviews - a souls-like with guns, some proc gen, 3-player co-op, the ability to 're-roll' a level if it's not to your liking/becomes repetitive.

I've kinda sworn off boss-battle games as I'm pretty fed up of them now, and basically view bosses as an impediment to seeing the rest of the game. I was able to resist Hollow Knight due to the platforming aspect (don't much like platformers either :) ) but this looks decent.

Astral Chain.

I’ve ordered it and I’m up for something new but like I mentioned prior, the more videos I see of it the less I think I’ll enjoy it 😬.

I've pre-ordered Man of Medan. Until Dawn (and Tetris Effect) are my favourite PS4 games so I just gotta know.

Definitely getting Man of Medan. I want Astral Chain, but I still don't have a Switch. Also getting Collection of Mana in the mail this week -- for Switch. I was gonna play Seiken 3 again, but that remake actually looks freaking outstanding. So now I'm not even sure if I'll keep the Switch version, as I already have a repro of Seiken 3.

Was also going to pick up the FF8 Remaster at the start of September, but from all the info I can find online, it looks pretty crusty - another mobile port hack job. I'll buy it on PC when someone fixes it with mods, a la FF9.
