Apparently A Robot Named Fight will receive a big update and be on sale for US$ 1.99:


I've been curious about it, I think I'll grab it.
of course this is on such a deep sale the day I said I'd kill for Super Metroid/Metroid Fusion to be released on the Switch.



Ah well, let's see if this game scratches that itch.
how's the phoenix wright trilogy? tempting at 30% off, never played those games before
It's my favorite trilogy in all of gaming. If you like VN/adventure games, these can't be missed.

You know it's a roguelite, right? The runs are built like a Metroidvania game but it's still first and foremost one of those.

So, Splatoon 2 is 35% off. Is the online community expected to stay healthy after t’ given that there won’t be more Splatfests?
It's Splatoon. That goes without saying.

Picked up South Park But Whole, The Flame in the Flood, RE4, Monopoly, Alex Kidd and Rayman Legends.
Thinking about getting Baba and Unruly Heroes too.

TheMoon Yeah, I know. I've been eying that game for a while now but always skipped it due to my backlog. It fundamentally being free (with my coins) trumps my backlog concerns.

Thanks for the heads-up, though.

I played through it a while back and wasn’t very impressed. Thought it was overhyped. It really doesn’t look great in either handheld or docked modes, which I think takes away its most redeeming quality on other platforms. To me, it’s the definition of mediocre.
I think I'll avoid it then 😆 thanks for getting back to me about it.

Ah, I always knew Namco loved Europe!

Shame DBZ Fighterz Season 2 pass isn't on sale, but at least the DBZ card game and Katamari are on sale though. <3

That's a helluva sale! Baba is You is tempting at that price, but trying to stop myself pulling the trigger on the Castlevania Collection and also picking up Resident Evil 4 for what has to be the eleventy-billionth time across god knows how many platforms now >_<

Is it brutal in terms of difficulty? I like the look of it, but if its gonna be a nightmare I'm out.
I didn't finish it, I don't think I will. I would still recommend it at full price just for the first section of the game alone. I still like showing the early puzzles off to folks

So, Splatoon 2 is 35% off. Is the online community expected to stay healthy after t’ given that there won’t be more Splatfests?
Absolutely. The Splatfests don't even deal with the ranked modes, where a lot of people spend their time

Apparently the Switch version of Blazing Chrome has framerate issues and missing effects.

Not gonna' lie, I'm getting sick of this shit. Doubly so in this case, due to JoyMasher's previous two Switch ports having tons of issues at launch.

I really can't get excited for indies on Switch anymore pre-release. It's frustrating.

Man, A Robot Named Fight doesn't have a 'plant your feet and shoot' aka shoot in all 8 directions without moving button. Not a big deal, but I've really come to love that mechanic from Samus Returns and was hoping this game would've shamelessly lifted it as well.

not to be a dick, but reminder that for folks with xbox/pc, the game is on gamepass. so if thats an option for folk, and with the huge sale, maybe spend dem moneys on something else and play blazing "free" somewhere else.

you can plant and shoot up or down with the L buttons

why not look up the solution for whatever puzzle you are stuck in?

I have an XB1, so I may just grab it there. I really like playing indies on Switch though, so Imma' little pissed. Whatever though, I'm used to it at this point.

Has anyone played Mark of the ninja on switch, as well as ps4 or Xbox one? I want to pick it up and would probably prefer to play it on switch but concerned that the 30fps would hamper the experience.

I've sung it praises before but yes, A Robot Named Fight is excellent and ab absolute steal for that price. All its pieces are so cleverly designed it takes a while to start noticing its roguelite nature.

No. Maybe it doesnt plant and just aims then? Havent played it in awhile.
It's like how it is in Super Metroid where it just aims diagonally up and down.
Anyone in on Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble?
tried the demo and it was... enjoyable?

I didn't like the first game (I honestly don't remember all the reasons why, but I do remember it felt unfinished and unpolished) but the demo was honestly kind of enjoyable, which is odd because since playing Into the Breach, I thought I was over the Advance Wars style of tactics.

Don't think I'll pick it up anytime soon though.

Silent is the easiest for me to constantly win with. You need to finish Act 3 with all characters to progress further, but I would go with Defect bc he can combo a bit like Silent too. Ironclad plays differently (and I have yet to properly beat the game with him).
Yeah really feeling Defect too, I actually started off with him. He'll definitely be my second win (eventually)

A SUMMER SALE!? THAT CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING!
Checks wishlist
HELL YEAH. STARDEW VALLEY IS NOT ON SALE ONCE AGAIN. HOORAY!
Ok, but seriously, what's up with that!? The Android version came out like 3 months ago, and it recently had a freakin' 33% off.
According to psprices, it has never been on sale at all.
Anyway, between the upcoming Tetris 99 tournament, and the fact that they could add new stuff during these days, I'm gonna wait.

Interestingly, it’s on sale in NA.

Played about an hour of A Robot Named Fight and I'm really digging it so far.

It's a rogue with procedurally generated levels but the the levels are so well designed, I wouldn't have known unless I read it elsewhere. Not only that, unlike Dead Cells, Gungeon or all the other rouges out there that get off by being overly difficult, ARNF is not brutally challenging (at least not yet).

It can all go to shit the more I play, but early impressions are really positive. Oh, also its soundtrack is absolutely bumping.

Did Saints Row patches ever make that game work well? I remember hearing it was pretty bad at release

OK so this might be a dumb question or whatever but seriously... how does one learn how to play PuyoPuyo? I bought PuyoPuyo Champions on the sale and I just sorta jumped into the game Vs the computer and I just lose within like a minute comfortably every time. Like I get the basics, you want to build up a tower that can get you a big combo when they all fall down but I just can't see how I can learn how to do so in this game- I don't see any difficulty settings or tutorials at all. Does it just 'click' eventually or are there guides to learn this game so I can at least not finish last please.

Sega posted a couple tutorial videos on their site, the Japanese version got a pretty extensive lesson mode recently so I hope we get that down the line

The PuyoNexus tutorial is also a really great resource, it's daunting but very rewarding if you get the hang of it

No problem! If you check their page they made a ton of them covering pretty much every aspect of competitive PuyoPuyo.

The Puyo Puyo Lesson Plan is an amazing resource to use as well. Links to a bunch of article and videos and tells you what you should be able to do before moving on. The Puyo community is amazing when it comes to training new players.

Is there a list anywhere of what's on sale?
If you're looking for NA sales, I haven't seen an easy-to-read list just yet but Captain of Outer Space always posts a thread here. The http://nintendo.com/games/sales-and-deals page has a full list with images. The EU summer sale is posted on the previous page.

Edit: here's Captain of Outer Space's thread: https://www.resetera.com/threads/na-eshop-deals-7-11-baba-is-you-fast-rmx-the-messenger-pw-trilogy-hd-pj-monsters-2-steamworld-dig-2-super-meat-boy-yokus-island-express.128551/

Same for Cosmic Star Heroine. Some pubs just hate us EU folk I guess.

Greetings my fellow Era posters. I am here to spread the gospel of a fantastic new game I discovered while browsing the discount section on the Japanese eShop: Hopping Girl Kohane Jumping Kingdom.



In this game you play as a warrior named Kohane whose weapon of choice is the mighty and noble spring staff, better known to the layman as a "pogo stick". Using this staff, she must propel herself across numerous lands in order to reach a battle flag at the end of each area, making sure to keep her spirits up by acquiring loot scattered across the ground along the way. As you progress through the game you can obtain new armor for Kohane that increases her stats, not unlike the equipment found in fellow RPGs like Dark Souls.



Unfortunately for import gamers, they may be out of luck as Hopping Girl Kohane Jumping Kingdom is a game that demands absolute mastery of the Japanese language. From the gripping story which tells the tale of Kohane's quest to save her friend Bani (that's Bunny in Eigo - Eigo is Japanese for English) from an evil princess, to the deep inner monologues Kohane relays throughout the game such as "hoppu, steppu, jumppu", you will most definitely want to be fluent in Nihongo when playing this thrilling action game.

Does anyone know if the 8 BIT ADVENTURE GAME is with the eShop version of steins gate, or do I have to find a physical copy for it?
