How did Asterix and Obelisk XXl 2 turn out? It being at $20 has me tempted
It was a major bummer.Nope. They've been pretty stubborn about there only being digital versions too, repeating it on Twitter and adding disclaimers to the official sites lol.
Yeah this is very well-documented (and many people don't notice it) so I sometimes forget to mention it, but yes, on Switch the SNES games included in X LC have some annoying input lag. It's a shame because every other game runs perfectly.
Also heads-up, the MM Legacy Collection 1 (as in classic Mega Man) is even worse about this, but only on Switch.
How is the performance of Sundered nowadays?Well, I don't think I'll be completing Black Paradox. Not because I don't want to, but because the game is fucking hard. I made it to the final boss once, lost, and haven't been able to get there again. As far as I can tell, there are no upgrade chips that give you more than 10 stat points, so I've effectively hit the stat cap and can't make the game easier by improving my car any further. I wish there was a way to lower the difficulty a little.
I started Sundered and this game is awesome. The art is wonderful.
Hitches and stutters a bit sometimes. Nothing that will affect gameplay, but you'll definitely notice it. The loading between regions or after death is also a bit on the long side.
I purchased it, so they'll announce it tomorrow. XD
That's very useful to know. Thanks for all of the detailed info. I'll still pick up the game but probably won't try to 100% it, at least not in an initial playthrough.I haven't gone for 100% in Tropical Freeze. And 100% in Celeste was tough, but always fair (excluding golden strawberries, I only got some of those). I never really got frustrated with Celeste except for a few C-sides. Magicat has stuff like puzzles where if you make 1 wrong move you have to kill yourself and respawn at the checkpoint or timed challenges where after the first couple worlds you seemingly have to do it perfectly or kill yourself to go back to checkpoint to retry, and the challenges are usually a bit of ways away from the checkpoint. It's tedious stuff like that that made me not want to do it.
Getting through the game isn't really that hard. You can respawn where you died for the cost of lives, though the cost exponentially increases for successive respawns on the same level. There was some kinda bonus for not using respawns though. I don't remember if it actually did anything or just put a checkpoint on the level or something. But I gave up on that too.
Also interested in getting some impressions on this.
I really wanted to get Sundred but the reviews weren't too good. Maybe I should get it anyway.
Really? Huh. I'm enjoying it a lot.
lol I had also been interested in the vast quantity of things you can apparently do in this game, but I hate that art.
Whereas I'm a twat and failed to notice the shrine/furnance mechanic so I ended up chucking the relics into the furnace and am now severly underpowered!Really? Huh. I'm enjoying it a lot.
There's a harshness to it that will definitely turn some people off. It's a metroidvania, and all the important rooms are fixed, but the caverns in between randomly generate in distinct chunks every time you die. They're well designed chunks, and roughly 30-40% of the map is fixed rooms, so I don't really mind it. Between that and death being both a mechanic and part of the story, it's got some roguelite elements. The game also loves to swarm you with hordes of enemies to fit the eldritch theme. I'm playing on Normal and I'm not finding it particularly hard, though. Yeah I've died, but you are transported back to the temple and can spend your shards to upgrade your abilities whenever it happens. There is a decent amount of retreading to get places (through the randomly generated portions), so between that and the hordes, the game expects a certain... hmm, purity of drive ? from the player. I'm not totally sure how to explain it, but it reminds me of Nocturne in that way, where you need to enjoy the experience of being constantly tested by the eldritch hordes and then finding it super gratifying to absorb their powers. There are even sections (I think these are all optional, but there are rewards at the end of them) where hordes spawn endlessly.
...Okay, there are also endings for fully resisting or doing a mix, but I'm going full chaos insanity because I find it the most thematically gratifying. And also morbid curiosity. I fully predict the game will end with the Trapezohedron murdering me or something for it, though, lol.
I created a US PayPal account and use my EU card with it. Only downside is that it can't be a card used on another PayPal account.So I’ve just bought $100 of US eshop credit to buy a couple of vouchers and redeemed the credit onto my US account. Then realised that I don’t have an online sub so I can’t buy vouchers
I looked at a trial but my European card and PayPal wouldn’t work, hence buying the credit.
So I guess my only option now is to join a family with my US account?
I was actually wondering about that. If you resist, you can't upgrade the abilities at all? Do you just have to fight through the game with the default Valkyrie abilities the whole way?
i dont have much experience with fighters but its kinda like pokkens 3d phase.
