  1. I played a bit and it was very rough, unpolished. People who don't have it yet aren't missing much, those who would have really enjoyed it probably bought it when it was released, or in one of the many sales it had.
  2. Oh Yoku's Island Express is a great game and regardless of how good Ghost 1.0 could be once we get into it, I'm going to recommend picking up Yoku first. It's not too long but it's fun, unique, sweet, and its graphics and music are very well done. I thought it was very much worth its full price. Seriously, go pick up Yoku. Most of the MetroidVania games I see you play are pretty combat oriented, this is a great game to break it up for a bit as all "combat" and "platforming" is pinball related and super fun, even if you're not into regular pinball machines. Did you ever play forma.8 by the way? It's also been on PS+, and is another MetroidVania with polished graphics.
  3. Personally, I often check the digital shops of every console I own to check if there's stuff that's flown in under the radar. That's how I found MagRunner back in the day, but also how I found Elite Dangerous, Accounting+, Statik, Octodad, LIMBO, Golf Story, Putty Pals... Actually there's a lot of games I find out about this way.
  4. You can only beat me if you play on the same days/weeks as me, so don't wait too long, the end is in sight for me
  5. @Dr_Mayus so at what price would you recommend Typoman?

     

    I know it's been €3 on PS4 before, it's €9 on the Switch now though. I don't care about trophies and I like being able to just play a game however I want with the Switch, be it on television or handheld in bed or in the train or on a holiday, so I'm easier to persuade to buy a game on the Switch.

      LIMBO is about as short as Typoman it seems (according to howlongtobeat.com times), so perfect to play if you have an hour of four and want to play something in one sitting. Especially if you have it already. Did you play INSIDE?

      I have heard nothing but good stuff about limbo so it is definitely on my play list.

       

      I have not played Inside yet. I haven't even heard of that one.

      It's a newer game than LIMBO, from the same devs. It's easier than LIMBO, I guess, but I like it more because it has more of a story, even if it's told without words and with a lot of stuff just happening in the background. As such, you won't really figure out the why of the story, but that's not a bad thing in my opinion. Only things some people criticise the game for are its lack of difficulty and how weird the story gets without it being explained, but if you don't mind having a story where you have to fill in some blanks yourself and having a game that isn't super challenging, then INSIDE is a cool 2.5D puzzle platformer with an intriguing story.

  6. Yeah probably. Though as someone who paid for the game, if they give out more of the game for free I'd appreciate it if it just went on PS+. Short answer: No.
  7. The name makes as much sense for people who have the game. It's the summer pack because it's summer now. When episode two was free, it was called the spring pack. Or spring cleaning pack even, if I recall correctly.
  8. Should've been a status update, not a thread. But okay, congrats.
  9. That might explain why I gave up in my first playthrough and gave it either a mediocre or bad review a KYC or two ago. Glad you enjoyed it though. I haven't deleted it from my PS4 yet (a Pro which has enough storage space anyway) but I don't see myself going back to it any time soon.
  10. Wanted to go to the Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon subforum to see if anyone else thought the game would end after five stages (game map seemed set up that way) but then I saw the trophy lists a trophy for each stage completed, blatantly telling you it's not done at five.

     

    Trophies really ruin surprises. I'm glad I'm not looking at lists any more before/while playing a game.

      There's an option at the top of the trophy list to hide the requirements of hidden trophies, that way you'll only see the image and a message that says:

        Secret Trophy
      Earn this trophy to reveal it, or change the filtering settings above.

      Yeah I know. I'm not talking about it being spoiled for me (I know now), I'm talking about it being spoiled for anyone looking at the list in advance. It's like this with more lists, and not all spoiler trophies are always secret.

  11. Well, if it makes you feel good... That I played only on hard, didn't bother with replaying many levels and got bored with the game before reaching the end probably has nothing to do with it. Get into Rayman Legends and see if you can keep up with @vin_rob and me, then we'll talk
  12. Same exact thing I thought, I basically bought the game because of the slim chance I liked it and because I felt like €14 was low enough to sponsor a person following his dream of making a game. I think you misunderstood. I meant Captain Toad was €40 back on its first release. I never had a Wii U but I expected most AAA titles to still be 60, I've heard of Captain Toad and Donkey Kong being the exceptions (and Donkey Kong was upped by 10 when it got to Switch). And I want to draw the line broader than Nintendo. All PS4 and X1 titles are 60-65 too, not including smaller exclusives like Golf Story for Nintendo or Cuphead for X1 or Flower for PSes. The whole problem with No Man's Sky was they lied about the game's contents and tried to pull a 60 price too, no one would have made as big a fuss if the game had been 30-40. I'm not as big a MetroidVania fan as you are, I was hoping you had picked it up and could tell me more 😅 General other topic, not necessarily directed at you... By the by, I honestly thought Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon only had five stages. Imagine my surprise...
  13. P.S. @MosesRockefeller did you notice Ghost 1.0? It's a MetroidVania that just released on the Switch, was on PC/X1 two years ago. It had some good reviews back then. I just saw it on the eShop while checking new releases, first I've heard of it.
  14. I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. You might be pleasantly surprised if you try it. Captain Toad is first party and not a port too. That is to say, it was already 40 when it was first on the Wii U. But yeah, AAA games in general are just asking for 60-65 these days regardless of actual average playtime or budget. It's weird in a way. Except for movies in a theatre (where you're actually paying not just for the movie but for theatre maintenance and loads of other stuff, so it makes sense there) I don't really know anything with such a generalised release price system. The art and story have me hooked. I'm not a big fan of the gameplay but it's not bad, but I enjoyed South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Mario + Rabbids as well regairdless of the genre (which is kinda similar to Banner Saga even though Banner Saga is serious and the other two are tongue in cheek). It's not that I didn't like it, I just have other stuff to play too. I finished a whole bunch of smaller games first, like Subsurface Circular, Frederic 2 and Semispheres. Now it's Captain Toad and Banner Saga, after that, who knows. I've pre-ordered Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and I'm probably going to continue in either Rayman Legends or L.A. Noire, both of which can be fun in small bursts. And I want to continue on Bayonetta. Maybe I should just not buy new games for a while... No, that's crazy talk. And how did you not see the pages earlier? I just walked around a bit in the first area while trying Hollow Knight and I wasn't paying lots of attention but even I spotted the paper trail and heard the scribbles.
  15. ... Stardew Valley. ... Not arguing against Hollow Knight, just saying I know of another cheap indie game that can keep you going for dozens of hours and which has free updates. Looking at deals like that, I sometimes think about how the hell Kirby was €60 instead of €40. Anyways I'm moving through Captain Toad and The Banner Saga right now. Captain Toad is lovely, and Banner Saga is excellent. Seeing as many people say Banner Saga 2 is even better, I can see myself getting the entire trilogy before August is over. Guess I'll play Hollow Knight when it's complete, I haven't played yet beyond my first hour of trying it.
