  1. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-10-captain-toad-treasure-tracker-announced-for-wii-u Toad is back with his own game.
  2. No word of a lie: this is my game of E3 so far. Looks like a cross between Deadpool and John Wick. It looks incredible. It's out on Switch and PC next year. I mean, look at this: Amazing.
  3. Thought this maybe warranted its own thread since discussion on it is currently split between the Gamepass, Switch and eShop threads. I love the art style, animation and premise, but kind of switched off when they showed the management side of things, which I always believed wasn’t my thing, but then I remembered how much I grew to love the various management sub games in the Yakuza series, and how much I’ve been enjoying the base management in between missions in MGS: Peace Walker which I’m currently playing. I feel like I’ve been living a lie telling myself I don’t like management sims, or maybe it’s something I’ve grown into, but whatever. Spiritfarer also looks to have a little bit of platforming and exploration, so it could actually be a really sweet blend of stuff. I thought this was a lovely review on Gamexplain: Anyone going in on it? Curious to see how good or otherwise the co-op component is (player 2 can go the cat!)
  4. Crypt of the Necrodancer, only Zelda. No, I mean literally that.
  5. https://www.gematsu.com/2021/01/blue-fire-launches-february-4-for-switch-and-pc-later-for-ps4-and-xbox-one I've been looking forward to this since it's reveal last year on one of the Indie World Directs. It really gives off strong 3D Hollow Knight vibes. I'm hoping for good things when it releases on Feb 4th. It's priced $19.99 in the US, but no UK pricing yet.
  6. Just completed this on Gamepass and had a fantastic time with it. The game is a perfect recreation of 90's internet, except surfed through mind bands whilst you sleep. You play an enforcer, which is essentially a RLLMUK moderator, except for the corporation that runs the internet. It's an incredibly accurate pastiche of the internet, and the scope is pitched perfectly. It's a tiny microcosm of the internet, full of fan pages, badly drawn comics, arguments over bands, nostalgia, conspiracy theories, and oh so many gifs. And the game is really just reading these pages, and getting drawn into the lives of the people behind them. Initially I thought the game was going to be a puzzle game where you have to work out what rules are being broken, but the game quickly dispels that notion by making it completely explicit what you're looking for, and just laying puzzles in place to prevent you going there. There are a few issues with it- typing with a pad is terrible, and some of the late game passwords are long, which is really frustrating. Combined with the obtuseness of some of the later puzzles means I used a walkthrough later on rather than try and puzzle through. Apparently there's a great hint system though, which I somehow missed. The other thing I'd advise is to enjoy it the most you need to take the time to allow yourself to get involved in the people's pages- rushing through would be utterly pointless here. However, just like real internet, a lot of it is chaff, so only read the pages which interest you, don't try to 100% from the off or you'll burn out. Thoroughly recommended, especially because it's free on Gamepass.
  7. There’s obviously been talk in the eShop megathread because where else ever why?... but thought I’d start a thread in order to post big DF John ‘The Legend’ Linneman’s video here: I’m not pure dying to play it or anything, but I can definitely see me getting round to it soon. Love me a puzzle platformer explore em up. Anyone tried it?
  8. A sequel to 2010’s cult favorite Deadly Premonition is finally on its way and it will release as a launch exclusive on Nintendo Switch. SWERY is once again writing and directing the sequel (that is actually meant to be a prequel), which will follow FBI agent Aaliyah Davis as she investigates an old serial killer case in Boston. Aaliyah’s new case also has a connection to a 14-year-old case in New Orleans that was investigated by FBI agent Francis York Morgan, the protagonist of the first game. Players will control both characters, it seems, as their stories intersect and reveal clues about each other’s cases. For Switch players who missed out on the first game when it was released, they’ll still be able to catch up. A new version of the original game, called Deadly Premonition Origins, is available on the Nintendo eShop. Debut trailer: Launch trailer: Deadly Premonition 2 is scheduled for a Summer release on Nintendo Switch in 2020.
  9. OCTO EXPANSION KLAXON; RELEASES 14/06/2018 NINTENDO CONFIRM FREE UPDATES UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR NEW AMIIBOS COMING IN 2018 http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/splatoon-2-switch https://splatoonus.tumblr.com/ [official Tumblr, full of little tidbits of info] Trailers! Art! Splatoon-branded gear! Hooray an actual sequel Splatoon 2 - sequel to the finest squid-based multiplayer shooter in recent memory - releases worldwide on July 27, 2017 for Nintendo Switch. Featuring a singleplayer campaign focusing on the disappearance of Callie (one of the Squid Sisters who featured prominently in the first game) along with... some kind of multiplayer? I've not seen anything that confirms what modes will be present, though going off the recent testfire you can be sure that Turf War will be there. What are you talking about Splatoon is a multiplayer shooter on Wii U, released in 2015. Its main gimmick is that the game's arsenal of weapons all fire ink rather than bullets; while on ink of your team's colour you can turn into a squid and move faster and climb up walls. Whilst submerged in ink you also recharge your ink supply. Ink of the opposing team's colour is dangerous; running through it will slow you down and getting hit by it generally doesn't end well. Turf War is a game mode that lasts three minutes, in which the team who has inked the most turf at the end wins. What kind of weapons are there Buckets! Rollers! Brushes! Sniper rifles. Ones that fire ink.
  10. Any objections? Coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch and Steam in early 2019.
  11. So anyone playing this? Seems to be out today for consoles after being a PC release. It looks distinctly like Dead Cells, to the point that it almost feels like it's ripping that game off. Might be interesting though.
  12. http://hollowknightsilksong.com/ Hollow Knight: Silksong Revealed! No time for fluff today gang. Let’s leap straight in for the big reveal, in trailer form! Hollow Knight: Silksong is the second game by Team Cherry (that’s us!) and the full-scale sequel to Hollow Knight.And Pwoarrrrrrowza! if this one hasn’t been a struggle to keep under-wraps! Hidden behind the scenes, Hornet’s gigantic adventure has been growing (and growing and growing!) for well over a year now, with the very first pieces coming together right after the original PC release of Hollow Knight on Feb 24th 2017. Almost from the very start, Hornet’s adventure was intended to take place in a new land, but as we dove in, it quickly became too large and too unique to stay a DLC, as initially planned. We do know that makes the wait a little longer, but we think the final, fresh world you’ll get to explore is worth it. Hollow Knight: Silksong will be available, at launch, on Windows, Mac, Linux & Nintendo Switch. More platforms may happen! Just remember, we’re 3 people, already working rather hard, so we haven’t committed to anything else just yet. We don’t wanna collapse before we get this massive bug kingdom ready for you. Eager to know more about Hollow Knight: Silksong, then we’ve lots of options: You can dive into the text below; jump over to the brand new website hollowknightsilksong.com(we made this yesterday!); or you can watch us go through it all in casual video form!

Captured and brought to an unfamiliar land, Hornet must battle foes and solve mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak. Hollow Knight: Silksong is the epic sequel to Hollow Knight, the award winning action-adventure of bugs and heroes. As the lethal hunter Hornet, journey to all-new lands, discover new powers, battle vast hordes of bugs and beasts and uncover ancient secrets tied to your nature and your past. Game Features Discover a whole new kingdom! Explore coral forests, mossy grottos, gilded cities and misted moors as you ascend to the shining citadel at the top of the world. Engage in lethal acrobatic action! Wield a whole new suite of nimble moves as you dance between foes in deadly, beautiful combat. Craft powerful tools! Master an ever-expanding arsenal of weapons, traps and mechanisms to confound your enemies and explore new heights. Solve shocking quests! Hunt down rare beasts, unearth ancient mysteries and search for lost treasures to fulfil the wishes of the downtrodden and restore the kingdom’s hope. Prepare for the unexpected! Face over 150 all-new foes! Beasts and hunters, assassins and kings, monsters and knights – defeat them all with bravery and skill! Experience a stunning orchestral score! Hollow Knight’s award-winning composer, Christopher Larkin, returns to bring melancholy melodies, symphonic strings and heart-thumping, soul strumming boss themes to the adventure. Challenge Silk Soul mode! Once you conquer the game, test your skills in an all-new mode that spins the game into a unique, challenging experience. Kickstarter Specifics To our 2158 Backers, you’ve heard it before, but Hollow Knight, and now Hornet’s entire adventure is thanks to you! Thanks to the incredible support of players and Kickstarter backers, what started out as a tiny game jam idea has become a game bought and played by over 2.8 million people! As a backer, your support made this happen, so you’ll of course be receiving your copy of Hollow Knight: Silksong 100% free. But we also know that times change, and the Nintendo Switch is quickly becoming a common (and excellent) console to own. Because of that, any backer of the game from the $10AUD and above tiers can choose to receive their copy of Hollow Knight: Silksong free on either PC or Nintendo Switch, at launch. We’ll shoot out a simple survey as we get closer to release to find out which version you’d like to receive. Higher tier backers who received multiple copies of Hollow Knight will also receive multiple copies of Hollow Knight: Silksong, the same rules apply as for Hollow Knight. You can elect for your primary copy on either Nintendo Switch or PC, with all additional copies as PC versions. Hollow Knight: Silksong PC (Windows, Mac & Linux) copies will be supplied as both a Steam Key and a DRM free version. For Silksong, backer content is again seamlessly integrated into the main game. Get ready to dance with operatic queens, battle mysterious assassins, scale a soaring warlord’s tower, and that’s just to start! If you’re one of those backers, and haven’t heard from us recently, don’t worry! We’ll be reaching out in the near future as we lock down the remaining pieces. With Silksong finally out in the open, expect lots more details in the near future. For now though, the three of us are diving back in to build this big, wild, elegant, insane world of knights, princesses, beasts and bugs! Team Cherry Out!
  13. Out today! I’m getting it on Switch. I may have ordered 3 ships off amazon last night as well. Reviews have been decent for the most part.
  14. Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam - 24/10/2017 ABOUT: A powerful ancient evil has arisen, and the war to save humanity has begun! The Mummy Demastered throws you into a 16-bit-inspired battle against the undead in a 2D, nonlinear, action-packed adventure. As an elite agent in the monster-hunting Prodigium organization, you must use a variety of weapons, upgrades, and mysterious artifacts to defend mankind against the supernatural hordes of Princess Ahmanet. Your Prodigium unit is already on the scene, but HQ lost contact with them hours ago. Only by exploring tombs, forests, abandoned tunnels, and the cursed streets of London will you discover the fate of your allies. But beware – Ahmanet commands legions of undead, insects, plague-ridden vermin, and worse! If you’re not careful, you’ll be the next soul in her army. KEY FEATURES: • Stunning retro-inspired graphics and atmospheric chiptune soundtrack • Shoot-’em-up action meets exploration-based adventuring • Fight for survival against swarms of horrifying enemies and bosses • Obliterate monsters with an arsenal of weapons including grenades, a flamethrower and more • Uncover and collect 50 hidden relics Reviews Playstation Universe - 8.5/10 "A thunderous Metroidvania effort that sublimely marries the timeless design of yesteryear with some of the best decisions of modern game design, The Mummy Demastered is not only a great title but also one of the genuinely best surprises of the year." Nintendo Life - 9/10 "They say don't judge a book by its cover, and you shouldn't judge this game based on its movie tie-in; with The Mummy Demastered, WayForward may have reached its apex. It deserves to stand on its own as one of the best recent examples of not only a pixel art aesthetic, but as an excellent combination of run 'n gunning, platforming and exploration. The game benefits from paying homage to multiple 16-bit ancestors rather than strictly sticking to its celluloid source material; The Mummy Demastered is a polished, accomplished and satisfying adventure that will entertain more than just Metroidvania fans." Destructoid - 7.5/10 "This game doesn't do anything meaningfully new or original for metroidvania fans, but everything here is solid and WayForward got the fundamentals right... in a licensed Mummy adaptation, of all things." Metro - 7/10 "It’s more an unofficial Castlevania game than a movie tie-in, but if you can handle the high difficultly level this is an effective substitute for the real thing."
  15. PHOGS! (Pronounced "Fogs") is out today on pretty much everything and it seems to be reviewing exceptionally well. https://culturedvultures.com/phogs-xbox-one-review/ https://www.heypoorplayer.com/2020/12/02/phogs-review-ps4/ https://www.thedigitalfix.com/gaming/review/phogs/ Essentially it's a co-op puzzler (both couch and online) where you each control the head of a conjoined dog. Yeah, you read that right. Anyway, it's on Gamepass which should give it some exposure and it's installed on my Xbox ready for my other half tonight.
  16. Can't decide whether to get the PS4 or Switch version! Also is there a tutorial video that is worth watching? Never really figured out how to play it properly! Thanks!
  17. Do you like physics puzzles, secrets and platforming? Then you should play Supraland! It’s out on all formats and is wonderful. It’s also out on Game Pass (Xbox, not PC, unfortunately). I’ve just got the McGuffin from the Crystal Tower and have been incredibly impressed by what I’ve seen so far. I
  18. Ok, so this is pretty old if you're on PC (2017!), but it released on January this year on the Switch and there's been a fair amount of positivity about it in the eshop thread - mainly from @therearerules . It was on sale a couple of months back and I only got around to playing it today. Goddamn, this game is good. From the guys who did 'Observation', it's a short, narrative based story split up into 4 distinct episodes, all with a bit of an Eighties horror theme going on. I feel it deserves its own spot in the limelight, away from the megathread. It has a strong 'Stranger Things' vibes from that trailer and that is certainly present in the first couple of episodes in particular, but the later episodes break away from that (although Episode 3 pays homage to another 80s classic). But it's great - what starts as a strong love letter to 80's text adventures suddenly becomes something...else entirely. Go into it cold. Play it at night and with headphones if possible. The game is short (I completed it in about 3 hours) and there's zero replayability, so it might not be worth the £8.99 price tag but it's a definite buy when it's on sale.
  19. A stylistic and frenzied rhythm-action adventure for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Mad Rat Dead is the morbid tale of a poorly-treated laboratory rodent who is on the brink of death, visited by the showy Rat God in his final hours, and granted one final day of opportunity to leave his glum cage and wreak vengeance upon those who consigned him to such a miserable life. And so, guided by the Rat God and... umm... his own sentient talking heart, the mad rat sets out to earn back just a modicum of street justice. While gameplay looks like your standard side-scrolling platformer, Mad Rat Dead is actually a rhythm-based title, with the rat's movement and action designated by beat-based button presses. Think Crypt of the NecroDancer but from a platforming perspective. Keep a steady rhythm and make the right choices to guide yer boy through enemy territory, whacking baddies and dodging hazards en route to the cheese waiting at the end of each course. A funky, big-band-style soundtrack is provided courtesy of a string of artists including a_hisa, Kouichi Sakita, Dyes Iwasaki, and Camellia, among others. Trailer: Mad Rap trailer: Out on October 30.
  20. Nintendo finally provided an update on the new Yoshi game for Switch. Confirming the final name Yoshi’s Crafted World, the game launches Spring 2019. Yoshi's Crafted World will allow players to join up with a friend, which is a nice touch; and it also lets players walk backward, practically a sin for side-scrolling platformers. Other than that, Yoshi’s new adventure seems to be much akin to his previous one, except much, much glossier. Which should be alright. So, the game is a side-scrollingplatformer where 3D characters are moved on a 2D plane. Unlike most side-scrolling games, though, Yoshi's Crafted World allows the player to view the game from two opposite viewpoints, allowing the camera to "flip sides" to see behind objects. The viewpoint is changed when the player has the Yoshi character stomp on the ground. Outside of this new mechanic, the game plays similar to prior Yoshi games, where the player may use Yoshi's tongue to eat enemies or other objects, turn them into eggs, and throw them outwardly into the level. The game will feature a two-player multiplayer mode, where each player maneuvers their own Yoshi through the game's levels Screenshots: Japanese debut trailer: Latest trailer:
  21. Shinsekai (litt.: new earth) is a stunning new metroidvania game from the Capcom team behind the first two Lost Planet games, and was released earlier today on the Nintendo Switch eShop and a few months before that through Apple arcade. The land has been covered with ice, forcing mankind to take refuge in the ocean. Years have passed, but the all-consuming ice moves slowly but steadily on, and civilization has fallen into decay. One lone survivor lives on in solitude. Desolate days lead into aimless nights, and the aquanaut passes the time in rote repetition. But one day, a chance encounter leads to the discovery of a mysterious drone-like machine. That meeting will lead them both deeper into a vast undersea world. "What happened to the world above?" "Are there others out there?" "What secrets lie at the bottom of the ocean?" Venture deeper as you seek answer to these and other questions whose answers may lie down below. The undersea world that awaits is both beautiful and terrible. Encounter sea creatures, brave mounting water pressure, and conserve oxygen as you press on into the undersea ruins, seeking the truth. Launch trailer: Official website: >> https://www.shinsekai-itd.com/en/ EDGE: 8 out of 10 Destructoid: 8 out of 10
  22. Couldn't find a thread for this but it's out now and in early access with founder packs available for purchase and a load of free codes knocking about the usual places. Gameplay trailer: Useless CGI trailer: So what you get is a 60fps free to play 3rd person team shooter. It's cross play on all consoles and has great gyro controls on Switch. I do wonder how many of these hero shooters can be sustained but! This one is from the makers of SMITE and Paladins and runs and plays really well, despite some beta jankiness. TLDR: it's a bit like Uncharted multiplayer with counterstrike in-round purchases, hero abilities and runs very well indeed. Founders packs available currently, of which I think skins and character unlocks are the difference. Starter £14 Standard £30 Ultimate £60 Expect it to go totally FTP late Autumn.
  23. New thread, to avoid mega-threads... A baffled Dinovaldo Glavenus, yesterday. Capcom recently announced Monster Hunter X (that's "cross"), an upcoming 3DS title that uses the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate engine and has flashy moves similar to the Frontier games. Since then, they’ve shared additional information on the game. The plans for Monster Hunter X began sometime around the production of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Capcom wanted to bring out more of a “festive” feeling that’s not in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, so they decided to bring back villages from past titles, and add four main monsters, instead of the usual one-per-title. Monster Hunter X is being developed with the concept of having your very own hunt that comes from the two features of “Hunting Maneuvers X Hunting Style”. Hunters will have access to new special moves and actions that look pretty flashy. Capcom say that these features will be the main attraction of Monster Hunter X. “Hunting Maneuvers” (or Arts) are special moves that range from being able to perform a powerful attack to a monster, to providing yourself with enhancements or buffs, and healing other nearby Hunters. “Hunting Style” is another feature that Monster Hunter X is adding to the game, that lets you turn moments of danger into stylish actions. This feature plays a big part in letting players hunt with their very own style. Capcom have prepared numerous "Hunting Arts" for each weapon, but there are also some “basic Hunting Arts” that can be used with any weapon, and you’ll get to choose from them all. This time around, the main village of Monster Hunter is called Verna Village. And the game will also feature various villages from past Monster Hunter titles, including Yukumo Village from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (sweet!). While most Monster Hunter games have one flagship monster on the covers, it looks like Monster Hunter X will have four, as the ones shown in the above image are marked as the “four major main monsters”. The four main monsters won’t simply appear over time as you advance through the game with one being stronger than the other, but they’re actually all along the same rank. They’re called the “Elite Four” among the developers. They are Gammoth ( a fanged beast), the rather cool Glavenus (a brute wyvern), Astalos (a flying wyvern), and a still unnamed leviathan-type. Launch trailer:
  24. Zelda x Dynasty Warriors. W-T-Actual-F.
  25. this seems up a lot of our streets, doing drift turns and so on.
