  1. Coming to PC, ps4, switch and xbone in August. <--- Demo available on steam From 1ccgames, the "Space Moth DX" lads. While that game was a rough diamond, obviously inspired by mushihimesama, but with some great fun mechanics and ideas of it's own, this is something else entirely. This is all diamond. The leap in progress they've made from that game to this is shocking! I'll include the "how to play" from the demo below as I'm not too great at explaining game mechanics without tangling myself up in words and confusing people, though I will give it a go and try and keep it concise and clear! Probably best just to read the slides and watch the run I've posted below. https://streamable.com/rzdpov Three difficulty modes. Easy, Normal and Bullet Hell. That run was on the highest difficulty. Four buttons, rapid shot, laser (focus), bullet time (hyper) and bomb. - Kill enemies and you'll automatically collect the blue things they drop - Blue things fill up your hyper gauge - Once that's at least half way full you can hyper - Now when you kill enemies, instead of getting blue things, you'll get gold cubes that are worth loads of points Try to make sure that your multiplier (the number in the bottom left corner) is at 8x before you hyper as the gold cubes are worth more the higher your multiplier. You build your multiplier when your bullets or laser hits enemies, and also by grazing bullets. Grazing bullets also replenishes bombs. If you're not familiar with the term "grazing", it's when you actively "hug" bullets instead of instinctively flying as far away as you can from them! The graze distance is pretty generous in this game. You can use bombs to turn the bullets around you into blue things that'll quickly fill your hyper gauge. So you'll see at the start of my run there, I kill a load of enemies to build my hyper gauge and multiplier, then I hyper, going into bullet time mode, grab all dem sweet sweet cubes, and once the hyper runs out, I use the bomb around a load of bullets to build my hyper up again before trying to build my multiplier back up. Those little astronaut lads replenish some of your hyper gauge while you're in hyper mode, as do the power pickups, so try and leave them until you're hypering to make your hyper last longer! For the boss, it seems like you have to be in hyper mode while you shoot all of it's armoured parts and then you'll get the extra phase at the end. Try to build your multiplier up high before killing him and you'll get showered with huge pale cubes. You can see I'm still working on that part as the cubes were tiny and shit. The game is amazing fun!
  2. Haven’t noticed a topic for this, thought I’d start one as it looks like a game that deserves a bit of attention. Loving the vibes from this, like they took Gauntlet, Golden Axe and Dungeon and Dragons and threw them into a blender. The pixel art is gorgeous yet has a distinct 90s retro feel too. Not to mention a banging soundtrack. Out at the end of the month, I’m looking forward to this. A more in-depth look:
  3. (note that this has nothing to do with the previously released Super Bomberman R - that's a different game) https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-03-16-stadia-timed-exclusive-super-bomberman-r-online-heading-to-pc-and-consoles-soon The previously Stadia exclusive is coming to all major platforms and will be free to play and cross-platform. This is really good news - hopefully this will build a solid community and regular players. Looking at footage it seems to liberally borrow from Tetris 99 in visual design with the smaller boards showing what is happening on other playfields in real time. Its a bit more Battle Royale-esq in the mechanics of moving between boards after each round to move away from unsafe zones - so technically guess this means Saturn Bomberman 10 player has finally been surpassed. I'm sure someone on this forum with a Stadia subscription has already played this and can give some early impressions! Right?
  4. https://teamninja-studio.com/ngmc/uk/ Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection announced for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC Versions are Sigma (PS3), Sigma 2 , and Razor's Edge Includes DLC costumes Due out on June 10 worldwide I believe the Sigma versions are seen inferior to the Black and vanilla 2, but I'm happy to see these on other platforms. I believe Black is available on the Xbox store which maybe a better bet. I haven't been able to nail down what makes the Sigma version inferior I remember playing the beginnings of this series in the arcade
  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. So what was the first game you bought for your shiny new PS4 and Xbox One back in 2013? Which game did you excitedly install and start playing first? And which will be your consoles swansong? Which will be the last game you play on your ageing hardware: headphones on to drown out the loud fans? For me: I bought my PS4 for Bloodborne, but it was Resogun which I played (and loved) first. And then Killzone....but the less said about that, the better. And as for it's swansong: probably Yakuza 6 - although that will be a while off. I've still got 3, 4, 5 and Judgement to play through before that. Good job I'm in no rush for a PS5. As for Xbox, I got mine in 2014 with two games: Forza 5 and... And the last game I play on my One X before my Series X arrives will probably be: Hmm, nice 'Space' themed symmetry I've got going on there.
  7. 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.
  8. Bought this on a whim after seeing a video for it on the Switch news channel - I’m playing it on Switch. I don’t know what’s going on but holy shit does it look good. Few frame drops here and there but pretty pin sharp in handheld otherwise. It’s an arena fighter, a bit like Power Stone or Kill La Kill If (the latter I also had on switch but this is a lot better and has bags more content). In style terms and with the bonkers Japanese voices it’s like an arena version of Dragonball Fighterz. I don’t have any experience with the Manga/Anime it’s based on - My Hero Acadamia - but I like the style. I’ll have to play a lot more to see what sort of depth is there but having a blast right now.
  9. Did a search for a topic on this but couldn't find one. Maybe not a surprise considering I've seen two videos so far, saying they'd not really heard of it before the last month. This is developed by Gunfire Games and mashes together a few genres. It's part souls, part Borderlands and a bit rogue-like. You can play online with up to three others or play solo, completely offline. It looks to have highly customisable characters, no micro transactions, with a promise of paid and free DLC. The gunplay looks pretty good though the locations seem quite sparse. There's the promise of 40+ weapons, excluding Melee. Over 100 enemy types and 20-30 bosses.
  10. Out Now Price: £14.99 Metacritic: 82 So on the eve of Bloodstained getting released, a small indie game has been released on the Switch eshop and on Xbox (it released last year on the PS4 and Steam) called Timespinner. And it's Castlevania. No seriously, it's Castlevania. Look at the map! Basically, you play a young girl who travels through time to try and stop an Empire from destroying her homeland. This involves travelling from the past to the present in an effort to figure out a way to reach the Emperor and kill him. So there's castles. And backtracking. And big, screen filling bosses. And it's great. Seriously, if you're a fan of the old DS Castlevanias, give it a go. You won't be disappointed.
  11. This came out of nowhere and climbed straight to my top 5 most wanted games: I'm really loving the art style and the animation. Here's me hoping this will be as good as its presentation! It seems like the devs are fond of classic games. This easter egg should be familiar to most posters on here: Some more screenshots:
  12. Looking forward to this as a distraction to Tetris 99. http://puyo.sega.com/champions/
  13. I've been aware of this game from Quebec-based nine dots for a little while but reading (in-store) a preview in PC Gamer this morning made me rather more interested. The game has some intriguing features and features a human "nobody" as Charname. couch and on-line co-op attention to detail on survival elements, you can't just scoff a dead animal no perma death - rather you are transported elsewhere on the map (potentially without your backpack - see below) no quick travel a spell crafting system which reminds me a bit of Two Worlds II, combing different ingredients or components to different ends auto-save only stamina cost to combat magic comes at the cost of lower health and stamina wearing a backpack hinders rolling away in combat
  14. Beamdog are partnering with Skybound games to bring all the classic Infinity Engine RPGs over in their EE versions, plus Neverwinter Nights. No further details as of yet. I was wondering what Beamdog were up to after Phil Daigle left - Trent has been busy forging weapons in his garage in his spare time, but this is tremendous news. Games are Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition The code for Icewind Dale 2 has apparently been lost, so this is the lot. Now confirmed as physical bundles and single digital editions - Baldurs Gate games Planescape Torment + Icewind Dale Neverwinter nights + "DLC" (coming early December)
  15. Systems: Pretty much everything Price: £15.99 Genre: Turn Based Strategy Remember Advance Wars? Remember your childlike C.O pitting your army against opposing enemies to sunny backdrops and jaunty music? Remember how it was (and still is, in my opinion) the best turn based strategy game around? Now remember how we haven't had a new game in the series in over 10 years? Nintendo, why do you hurt me so? Now enter Wargroove. Not so much a homage to Advance Wars, but an almost blatant rip off. This isn't a bad thing, though. If Nintendo won't work with the IP, at least someone is willing to take the mantle and run with it. Obviously, the biggest difference is the Medieval setting. So no tanks, then. Instead you have Ballistas. And Giants. And don't expect any aircraft. There be dragons here, instead. Plus, it expands massively on what Advance Wars started. 4 Player Multiplayer? Check. Online? Check. Create your own maps and share them online? Check. Essentially it looks like Advance Wars +++. Personally I would have been happy with Advance Wars +, but given the time spent on it (it was meant to be out over a year ago initially) and the obvious love the game has for predecessor, it seems like it might be something quite special. So when's it out? Today, hopefully! A shadow drop at the the end of the Nintendo Indie Direct is what we'd like. If not, it's definitely out soon, though. The developers have been all over Twitter, promising more information and a release VERY soon. I fully expect it it's not today, we will definitely have a date after the Direct. Just look at it! How could you not be excited?
  16. I'm not a fan of Dark Souls but I do enjoy seeing what publishers think they can get away with when it comes to the ultra expensive collectors edition. https://store.bandainamcoent.eu/uk/product/526642/dark-souls-trilogy-collector-s-edition-ps4?utm_source=newsletter&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=ds-trilogy-announcement-19012019 All yours for just £449.99. I know there are a lot of Dark Souls fans on this forum, any takers?
  17. I got my Steam key this morning! Who else is jumping in? http://www.causalbitgames.com/our-games/battle-princess-madelyn/
  18. I've been doing a weekly mini review on some smaller eshop games this last few weeks, in the hope of promoting some discussion about the games. I figured I'd spin off some of the posts into their own thread to see how interested others are. So here goes. This week: Night In The Woods Price: £17.09 Metacritic: 85% https://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/night-in-the-woods Also on: Pretty much everything. It's hard to really talk about Night In The Woods without going into spoiler territory. I can't even quantify what appeals about the game so much to me, really. You play as Mae, a young cat who returns home to her little town after dropping out of college. You rekindle old friendships, you attempt to talk with your disappointed parents, you wander around town, noticing how many places have closed down since you were last here, you poke at dismembered arms with sticks. The atmosphere reminds me of Animal Crossing if it was written by David Lynch. Things just don't seem quite right in this little town. What stands out about Night In The Woods is the dialogue. The core four main friends have easy, well written conversations that flow naturally. Oftentimes, this will slow the pace of the game down a bit as you end up listening to talk about what was on TV lastnight, but it really does aid the character development. And when the game takes a left turn about two thirds of the way through, you realise how important those conversations are. Honestly, I just enjoyed spending time in the world. At about 6-7 hours, it's not the longest game, But the feel of decay, of a town which is failing in the face of the modern world is so well realised. And it has a great story to tell. 
  19. Wales Interactive have a new FMV mystery game coming out. The Shape Shifting Detective. If you weren't interested (you should be, it looks fantastic) then did you notice a certain someone...? No? If I did 'This' would it mean anything to you? Coming to Steam, Xbox One, PS4, Switch in Autumn.
  20. Just been officially announced: http://www.dirtrally2.com/ Disappointed in the branding

    Planet Alpha

    Picked this up on Switch. It looks pretty bad on TV mode (playing on a 4k set admittedly) but better - if basic - on handheld. Gameplay is pretty basic. I guess I was hoping for a Inside/Limbo with Sci Fi sort of thing but no such luck. The music is quite atmospheric but maybe as I’m playing it on Switch I don’t get the same sense of awe that I got from the trailers. Frame rate chugs on a few occasions though nothing too serious. Some bits (I’m an hour or so in) are quite creepy and scary but as the checkpoints are so generous there’s no real feeling of tension or fear. I’m disappointed as I was looking forward to this.
  22. Just announced at GamesCom. After a string of misfires it looks like Supermassive Games are returning to the successful Until Dawn formula for an anthology of stand-alone horror games where your decisions affect the narrative outcome and everyone can live/die etc Namco Bandai are publishing, so Xbox and PC owners to get to join in this time. The first story in the anthology is called Man of Medan and is due for release next year. I really enjoyed Until Dawn so I'm cautiously in. I think a lot of people were requesting that they basically do a series of stand-alone games where each focuses on a specific horror sub-genre so it looks like they were paying attention.
  23. Long before the we wanted to go into battle on an island, the world was in big big trouble and only a few brave heroes could SAVE THE WORLD! Or something like that anyway. Fortnite was originally a PvE game and despite Battle Royale being the darling of the industry right now, this is still the meat of Epic's game... But what is it? Well I am too lazy to write stuff so this is from Wikipedia: Whilst the game does have micro-transactions and despite needing to pay to get access right now, the balancing seems pretty decent on the whole, with you being able to progress through the game just by playing and getting end of mission rewards.What's best though, the game is very generous with V-Bucks, meaning you can easily earn enough to buy a full season of Battle Royale within a few days. A few on the forum are really into it... you should be to. Media Our very own @robdood is the go to forum expert in this mode right now and you should check out his videos too. Check out his channel too. Add yourself to the spreadsheet to play with others: HERE (If anyone is better at spreadsheets than I, please feel free to make it look better) Jump in and exterminate some husks!
  24. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight. Free DLC added! First paid DLC batch added! Ooo, another free update! The second paid DLC includes Castlevaniaesque floaty sword!
