Had no idea Shovel Knight Dig was releasing this soon, nor did I know what the game was about. Suddenly very excited for that one.

Midnight Fight Express is up! Pretty slick brawler, kind of a combination of Hotline Miami and Yakuza. Tried it on Game Pass and decided to get it on Switch. Let's see how it runs...

Still chipping away at these 🎲y dungeons. 😄 The episode "Worse than a Curse" was really tough for us, the hardest in a while. It was so satisfying to die a bunch of times and then beat it with full health against Scacath. Man. This game is so good and addictive.

Also really psyched for Shovel Knight Dig reviews tomorrow! 🪵🔥🪵🌌

I really don’t like inventor so it’s stalled my progress

It's a really unusual character build in the game to be sure. I'm not that far in the game but with the devil may care style of inventor for sure it's been tough to complete their episodes. Can you do the episodes for the others instead? I like how a bunch unlock at a time.

My favorite thief moment was stealing a potion from the alchemist and becoming a bear for the rest of the episode. Thief episode 3 I remember being tough. The Witch was the hardest character for me personally.

I actually liked the inventor a lot.

Despite being only ** stars difficulty I've never got to grips with the thief.

I think what really cracked me up was when I realized in the first battle that you absolutely had to permanently toss away gear. That was wild to me. And then the way the second episode kicks it up is just an extra cherry on top. I like the absurdist sense of humor in the game. The dialogue cracks me up a lot.

I personally like the Thief, at least the two episodes we've played. That being said we're about to go into the third Thief episode tomorrow, the one @Niraj mentioned and just from looking at the rules I can tell it's going to be a hilarious mess. The characters are all so different from each other that I can definitely see each one appealing to people differently. I said it before but it's really like several games in one to me. I also really dig that there are semi-structured levels to go through. I think if it was just random battles without the overarching structure it would be a lot less engaging to me. I like having goals and the in-game achievements. The character bios are a good reward.

I just fought the alchemist for the first time! It was really interesting...I was very surprised when they turned into a bear... especially in that hilariously rough Warrior episode.

Yes, once you’ve unlocked the first episode you unlock the rest of that characters episodes solely by completing theirs(and there’s some margin too)

I’m still annoyed there’s no reward for clearing an episode as the bear. The witch can be swingy but the concept is easy to work around, I only have one episode left for her I think

It's been awhile since I played the regular episodes, but I remember Witch episode 4 being a big pain in the ass lol

Ironically I only got Game Pass for Tinykin and it gave me motion sickness so I decided to try Dicey Dungeons instead. Now I can tell we'll be at Dicey Dungeons for a while so I might as well cancel Game Pass and just buy Dicey Dungeons on sale.

I'm really enjoying Easy Come Easy Golf. Nothing fancy, no wild zombie outbreak or post apocalypse or whatever setting, no rpg/roguelike/popular genre of the month mash up. Just honest to goodness video game golf with unspectacular yet charming visuals and fun, well crafted gameplay from the Everybody's Golf devs. It's great.

A lot of games went on sale today in at least EU. Any good finds?
There's so many good games on sale it's kinda hard to know where to start :D

Jade Order is a great puzzler I picked up for $2AU.

Riddled Corpses EX is meant to be a fun twin stick shooter. 90% off.

I'll make a separate thread but Shovel Knight Dig got sublime reviews as I'd hoped.


I think this will be my first platforming roguelite. I'm steeling my shovel!

Deku Deals helps a lot with this. Usually I filter for “new lowest price” to see if there any rare bargains.

I got Metro 2033. Other stuff (below 10 USD) that caught my eye: Kill la Kill IF, Mulaka, Horizon Chase Turbo, Hand of Fate 2, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Paradise Killer, Kaze and the Wild Masks, Saint’s Row The Third, Happy Game and Blaster Master Zero 3.

I think later I'm going to buy and play OneShot, I heard about it when it was on PC but never got to play it, seems interesting


It released recently

Yes, it's really is fantastic! Really good feel of progression and balance with difficulty curve.

Playing Easy Game, Easy Golf mixed with Return to Money Island is a great and chill combo.

It's a shame Tinykin gave you motion sickness - if I remember right you were looking forward to that one? I picked it up for my Pikmin-obsessed 8 year old son and we absolutely love it.

I got Dicey Dungeons in a sale a few months ago but only tried it a couple of times. To be honest I didn't really understand what was going on and I dropped it quickly 😂. I'll have to give it another go (if I can put down Splatoon 3!).

I'm debating whether to pick up Tunic when it comes out in a few days. It looks great, but my backlog! Perhaps I should try to finish Death's Door first - they look quite similar?

I'm also interested in OneShot - too many games! 😵‍💫

I didn't know about the "new lowest price" filter. That's a game changer!

I was really happy with Kaze. If you like DKC and Y-L and the Impossible Lair sub-10 is an absolute steal. The first world feels derivative of DKC and is kinda misleading in that it made me concerned the whole game would feel like that, but the rest of the game was endlessly engaging and cleverly designed, especially when going for 100%. It definitely reminded me.of Rayman Origins, too.

Thanks @docus! Yep, I was really jazzed for Tinykin for like 3 years so I was pretty bummed it gave me motion sickness. But Dicey Dungeons has been such an unexpected delight that I feel kinda lucky that Tinykin got me to sign back up for Game Pass and serendipitously try a game outside of my comfort zone. I definitely encourage you to give it another whirl sometime when you feel like a card battling roguelite. We just passed the halfway point of the main game as I understand it (about 21 episodes in) and it is so addictively fun, creative and satisfying.

About Tunic, for me personally, like @Earthbounder mentioned in the ST, it's one of my favorite indies ever made. For me that also makes it one of my favorite games ever made. It was a true pleasure to play through, experience and puzzle out. My SO and I spent countless hours working our way through its mysteries. I really can't put a price tag on that, but it's easily worth the asking price for any Zelda or indie game fan. (It definitely does its own divergent thing from Zelda, though.)

I grabbed TMNT Shredder's Revenge during the DotEmu sale and whoa...
  • The game is so short, 2 hours to clear the story.
  • The dialogue and even the VOs are super corny. Vocal BGMs included.
  • But it just feels so exhilarating to dive into a good bmup game, let alone a TMNT game. The last TMNT games I played were on NES and I watched some cartoon episode back then so playing Shredder's Revenge really brought me back to the good ole day lol.

I think DF's review already praised this game way better than I could ever have, but to sum it up, I'll never trade these 2 hours feat. me wearing a shit-eating grin constantly on my face for 20 hours on any other game, AAA included.

So it looks like there's actually going to be an update for TOEM with a new area. That's pretty cool and unexpected. Looking forward to it being available on Switch.
