Risk of Rain 2 is awesome really. Didn't expect the game to be that good already.

 

But as a fan of the first episode,

Spoiler

 

Wow, this looks pretty cool...

I hate to admit it, but I've never played a 3D rogue-like before... 

I'll have to check it out sometime this summer when I should have more time to play some newer games.

=D

 

I've already put more than 20 hours into RoR 2 since its release on Steam. In fact I just unlocked the Artificer last night.

I've been playing it for up to an hour after work the last few nights. What I like about it is that it challenges you, but there's no obligation of long-term commitment, much like arcades. And every item and power-up you get is shuffled with each playthrough.

Yeah, no traditional final boss (yet) like Providence from the first game. But then again it is still early access, though the game seems to be a huge success regardless. Plus we'll have another 4 Survivors to unlock once the game is complete...one of which I can almost guarantee will be the Bandit.

Is Sekiro worth playing even if you don't like Dark Souls?

its meant to be even harder, with the introduction of 4 different dodge/deflect buttons instead of just 1 dodge,1 deflect, so expect a real fucking slog of a game.

there’s 4 what ???
i got up to .. a certain boss in the game. probably feels about mid point in game or a bit after, and spent a week on it before realising i was only using l1 to shield and parry, when using r1 is just a billion times more effective at doing the same thing. so there is the matter of timing and responding to enemy movements, but there was a degree of “oh shit i can just go full offensive on the r1 and try to time and line up attacks to get the deflects!!!”. all of a sudden much easier.

i feel like with souls games. a lot of the difficulty comes in things not being properly explained or pointed out and made obvious.. and for the most part this game is doing a good job on eliminating that and brings understanding of mechanics a bit more to forefront.

i’ve been enjoying it, but also obviously that is coming from a position of having played and loved all the souls games, so. not entirely relevant to question :3 lol

Yeah there is very much one correct way to play the game and it becomes so much easier once you realise it. Plus knowing how to thrust attack deflect and do posture damage to sweep attacks, it's actually kind of an easy game (I say this being stuck on one of the end-game bosses). But yeah it doesn't make a lot of this immediately obvious (the loading screen has some tips I suppose).

 

But yeah whatever you do don't play it like a Soulsbourne it will actively punish you for it.

Probably for people rich enough to make a faux arcade setup for their Switch

not to mention switch already has .. capcom beatemup collection, street fighter collection, SNK oldschool collection, namco collection + good collection on Hamster arcade ports.
the capcom logo still strikes me as being exceedingly a waste of money.

i guess i'm thinking about it all wrong, and it's more an expensive "nice looking" monument to put up and display.

along the lines of the Street Fighter 2 cartridge re-release that had cost $100 and had the warning

Yeah I don't know why anyone would want a table sized logo in their house.

 

The Switch 8.0 update brought some pretty nice QoL improvements though. I also finally picked up Smash Bros

Started cities skylines. As someone who has very little time for gaming, it’s not instantly approachable and it’s a challenge to get the pacing right. I can’t get beyond a small town before everyone loses their electricity or water, there’s a sewage backup, there are too many sick people, homes are abandoned, I’m out of money and loans, and there’s a mass exodus. Need to understand the foundation and pacing more. Until then, back to red dead.

I'm about halfway thru Project Warlock - an indie pixel FPS that came out last December. Cool aesthetics, good soundtrack, not disappointed. A must-try for the classic  early 90s shooter fan base.

I got that too, I tried playing it for a bit but couldn't get into it. Something about it that just feels off, something in the movement. I'll give it another try though.

 

DUSK had me wanting to play through from beginning to end, though. I'm also looking forward to Prodeus.

posting in the 666 page just because. Also, still on DMC V Blood Palace + 2nd replay. Game does a great job softly training you to steadily improve your skills while still keeping it fun. Spectacular game design prob my fave hack/slash second only to Ninja Gaiden II. 

 

EDIT: So I go to my google feed and I see Ninja Gaiden II and think "oh yeah, it's just google picking up on my post here and invasively sending me things info on things that, ok, yeah, I do want to know about" and then I see NINJA GAIDEN II IS NOW BACKWARDS COMPAT ON XBOX ONE!!!?!!!!

I felt iffy about Project Warlock at first too. But after you complete the first episode it turns out the array of environments and enemies throughout the game is much more diverse than it initially appears. Plus you get cool weapon upgrades.

 

I think I left off on E2M7 of Dusk on Cero Miedo about three weeks ago when I got distracted by Risk Of Rain 2. But I might return to it after finishing Project Warlock.

As for Prodeus, I just backed them on Kickstarter a few days ago. TBH I feel that indie devs are the true heroes of the game industry these days.
