Guess I'll have to wait for a DF comparison video on Bloodstained before biting, sigh. I really don't want to have to play this on a TV.

I finished Katana ZERO tonight.

WOW. I know this game got a lot of criticism on this thread about its game length, I think it's perfect. The game's story ends on an arc, and then setups a sequel with a "To be Continued..." but where it ends, makes sense. According to Steam it took me 5 hours. I felt like that's about perfect, the game doesn't overstay its welcome and the game doesn't feel bloated or has any filler whatsoever.

The story is WOW. I think this is the best example of "Art Violence". I mean, here you have a "16-bit" game doing violence in such a way that makes you feel... gross and queasy. I mean, that's an accomplishment for freaking pixel art! And I didn't feel like it felt it was doing this violence for cheap thrills. It all felt apart of the very mature/disturbing story it was trying to tell.

It's a great gaming "experience". It's a perfect example of why games don't need to be about "dollar per hours of game play" or things like that. As weird as this sounds: Katana ZERO is the best "video game art" I've played in a long time. The game play reasons for dying and retrying are connected beautifully into the game's story and presentation. Everything in its design is purposeful.


I honestly can't think of anything about the game I didn't like. Probably the violence. It was intense. But like I said, it was integral to the game's artistic experience, so it worked. It's honestly the first M-rated game I've finished since The Last of Us on PS3.
I agree with everything here. Katana Zero is one of the best games I've played this generation. And I had absolutely zero issues with the game's length or how it ended.

Hopefully the UK store takes my mastercard :-)
Fuuuuck, I waited too long to get one of these vouchers.

I guess the cheapest place for UK people is now actually the UK store, unless people are aware of South Africa/Norway/other PAL regions that aren't Australia that would be cheaper to the £.
Interestingly Sweden is still the cheapest to buy individual games, they only raised the vouchers price so in that country the vouchers only save you like 2,8€.
Buying individual games from Sweden costs 49€ per title, buying vouchers from GB costs 94€ / 47€ per title. (And we still get 5% back in gold points in both options) I'll be taking two vouchers for SMM2 and Fire Emblem but I don't think I'll bother with more vouchers.

Oh wow, Rolling Gunner feels fantastic to play, the controls and snappy, and the mechanic of the games' namesake is really intuitive once you get the hang of it, really fun! Looking forward to improving myself in it later today! The games' release really snuck up on me haha.

Any decent visual novels on the eshop apart from Stein's Gate Elite (which I loved)?
Death Mark is quite well received, but I haven't played it yet. Clannad is also on the way, which is considered a classic, but I also haven't played it. Also, Word End Syndrome is quite well regarded - not to be confused with Our World is Ended, which is not.

I generally only purchase one game at a time and try to hold off on anything else until I'm done with that game, but the last month or so I've really messed up..

Currently playing all of the following:
  • Boxboy + Boxgirl - I've gotten about half way through the main single player campaign.
  • Picross S3 - Maybe 25% through. I play a couple puzzles a week.
  • Cadence of Hyrule - Almost completed my first run.
  • Crypt of the Necrodancer - Already had it on PC, but couldn't resist the huge sale.
  • Slay the Spire - Really liking this. Probably put in about 10 hours. Beat it using Ironclad a couple times, still trying to figure out what works for the other characters
  • Final Fantasy XII:Zodiac Age - Couldn't resist the Target deal and got it for $28. Only a couple hours in, but I'm really liking it.
Not to mention that I'm also planning on using a voucher on Mario Maker 2 this Friday. I tend to only play about an hour before bed each night, and it's getting hard to even decide which game to play... Lol.

Daedalus: the awakening of golden jazz (there's a demo)
Death mark is not bad and overall I enjoyed it, though I felt it became a little repetitive at some point
There's World End Syndrome which is apparently fine but I haven't played
I'm in the middle of the beginning of State of Mind, so no real opinion yet (except that I am still interested in continuing)
Also how could I forget, there's Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney trilogy)

Added: There are also some Telltale games such as Batman (which I enjoyed) and Walking Dead (first season and last season, haven't played either yet).

I have Cadence and FFXII on my plate right now. Luckily I'm close to finishing FFXII (brilliant game, can't recommend it enough) and Cadence is pretty short, so even though I'm getting Mario Maker I should be more than ready to tackle Fire Emblem when that comes out. Maybe I'll even have time to grab an indie between now and then, or beat something I've left by the wayside.
