Just finished the only game I bought during winter seal.


What a great game. Took me about 20 hours to 100% and I enjoyed most of it. It is a metroidvania, but not in the traditional sense as it more relies on adventure than platforming. There Are about 15 islands that you sail to and from and on each island there are areas you cant access until you have new abilities. There were a few times that I was kind of stuck and the backtracking is tiresome at times, but overall I highly recommend.
My three favorite indie metroidvanias are Hollow Knight, Elliot Quest, and Treasure Adventure Game. I still need to play more World. Shame only one of those games are a success. At least the Hollow Knight devs will continue making games.

You have to buy it! It is priced so well and I got 20+ hours of great gaming out of it. I think I bought for $6 last week. I wish I bought more copies to give away. I am amazed at how many hours of enjoyment out of Sub $20 indie games I get, or in this case sub $10. Anyways, here is my review I just wrote for TAW. https://steamcommunity.com/id/artsncrafts/recommended/268770

Sales to purchase Hot Lava during the beta phase ends today, nobody will be able to purchase it anymore until release. No mention of a price increase or anything so 10 bucks still might be the price upon release. If you buy it now you get an extra copy though, who knows if that deal will stick around after today.
Hey, I just wanted to thank you for posting this PSA.

Was able to nab a copy just under the wire and good gravy is it awesome.

Man, Klei sure has the Midas Touch in the presentation dept. (That's across the board, art direction, UI, sound design, etc.)

The most frustrating thing about these nice looking Chinese games is that they include an English title 9 times out of 10. English description and store page as well.

... And yet when the game actually launches English is no where to be seen and I could count on a single hand the CN games that had English added after. It's... annoying.

So, I finally started Shadow Tactics: Blades of Shogun which I bought way back at release day, and have to say, the game is fantastic, so far I have more fun with it than with XCOM 2. One minor gripe, it kicks my ass a little bit too often.
Well, if at you at least liked XCOM and XCOM 2, you should look forward to Phoenix Point ;) Though I never got around Shadow Tactics, but heard only positive feedback.

I am liking the Vagrant on steam - but I noticed some slow down in animations , not because of the game but because of my aging gaming laptop

I have my gaming desktop but I use it for video editing lol

Wish I had the funds to buy or build a new pc

Gotta wait ;(

Here are some of my suggestions

Shadow of the Tomb Raider:


Anno 2205:


Assassin's Creed Odyssey:


Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:


Prey:


Quantum Break:


Rise of the Tomb Raider:


Watch_Dogs 2:


Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus:


These would keep your GPU busy.
I tried the Shadow demo and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Will put it on my price drop list.

I have DE:MD so I'll boot that up and see how it looks, thanks!

I wasn't floored by Prey's technical look, but I loved its art-style.

Is Quantum Break worth playing? I loved Alan Wake and the original Max Paynes....

I still need to play the latest build of Phoenix Point (only did that for like an hour).
How much content is in the build? Is it comparable to Troubleshooter?

I think so, it's constantly on sale as well so you can get it pretty cheap. Gunplay isn't nearly as satisfying as MP, but story and time manipulation gimmicks are pretty cool, plus some of the neattest set-pieces you can find in a video game.
 
Updated pitch for a Capcom 2D Fighters Bundle:
  • Saturday Night Slam Masters
  • Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
  • Ring of Destruction: Slam Masters II
  • Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge
  • Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness
  • Red Earth/Warzard
  • Darkstalkers 3/Vampire Savior
  • Super Gem Fighters Mini Mix
gimme

I really should go back and restart Valdis Story. I remember I really liked it except for the "scoring" on boss fights. I am a perfectionist in games so It would piss me off to get C on a boss fight.

Yeah, I had fun playing along with friends. I'll likely get back to it once the release update drops but even now the game is very polished and very fun. Klei really has become one of my favorite devs.

Can't make the comparison with Troubleshooter, never played it ;)

There was a big update not that long ago (Backer Build 3), including new maps, enemies, inventory management and the basic version of the strategic layer of the game. Was a big step forward compared to the previous version(s), but still missing a lot of stuff. Backed the game on Fig a long time ago, because it looked great and so far the preview builds seem promising.

How essential is the big DLC for xcom 2? I was thinking of finally jumping in and already own the base game plus the dlc released for it, but not the major DLC that came out.

War of the Chosen basically turns the game into XCOM 2.5, so yeah I'd say it's pretty essential if you want to experience the game at its full potential.

I can tell from seeing your scores on Sunset Overdrive random events, haha.

Valdis is great. The final boss left me with cramped fingers but I was so locked into a groove. That said, I wasn’t concerned about my grading so much as being concerned about progressing through the game.

Into the Breach waifu edition just launched in early access. Chinese only, of course.

Sooner or later I'll start buying these Chinese only games anyway. I mean, I used to play English games without understanding a single word when I was a child, it can't be that different.
This looks really cute, wishlisted

Its a great game. Yeah can be tricky. Thankfully it has that very nice quick save system where it tells you how long since the last save, I used it a lot. Really looking forward to the next one, I think they are doing a Desperadoes reboot.

Honestly, if you've got everything BUT War of the Chosen, it's going to be a good time. War of the Chosen takes it to another level, but it'd be overwhelming to someone who never played the base game.

Ha yea, it is a curse really as I have to get a "gold" and collect everything. If the gameplay is amazing like Sunset Overdrive it was a joy to get, but some games I just cant. But I think I will start Valdis tonight and just not worry about grading of the bosses.

Took me long enough but finally finished Yakuza 0 today

Now the wait for Kiwami begins
i feel kinda trapped cos i have kiwami on console with that psn plus thing, and i could get kiwami 2 but then idk what to do. i don't want to jump to 6 and miss out on 3-5, i bet they did the work to make playing 6 before 3 not feel bad but i dunno, i feel this series should be played in (sort of) chronological order

Yakuza 3 and 4 already have a PS4 remaster in japan with the fifth coming at the end of the year, just stay patient for the western release.

Yes, Capcom, YES, embrace the aspect ratios

That Ninja?!

I've been really liking the game. Been playing it for... 2 months now? Not that much(~50 hours) but I realized I'm gonna run out of substories at this pace, as it's pretty much the only stuff I've been doing for the last couple of weeks along with the business part, so I'm probably gonna finish the main story first, start another game's campaign and come back to Yakuza 0 from time to time so I beat all of the substories, etc

What makes me the most mad about this is that Chinese players review bomb English games for not including Chinese, yet if you make a single request or complaint that the game isn't in English on a Chinese game, the community for the game freaks out at you.

Rapture Rejects will become a part of Humble Monthly Bundle in February! In addition to the game, we created a special Safari Outfit for the Humble Monthly subscribers! Not a member yet? It's not too late to subscribe and join the unholy battlefields.
Guess, Division wasn't selling.
