    Oh, hey I picked this up on the Switch earlier this year for like 3 bucks. I basically agree with your writeup, I found it pleasant, with a great art style, and better/more interesting puzzles in gen...

    This game is very fun and quite difficult; I really like all the new mechanics and playable characters! Trying to get all the boxes on some of the levels has been a real doozy. That Food Run level Vin...

    @benpack If you are a big DKC2 fan, you should definitely check out the Yooka-Laylee sequel, it is secretly a very good DKC game, the movement mechanics are basically taken as-is. It has some great le...

    That last game was giving me some real Magic Pengel vibes, been a while since I thought about that game. I think my favorite of these was the first game they played.

    Also, this is not the original question, but my favorite piece of box art ever is probably for the Super Famicom release of Shin Megami Tensei 1 (thank you to whoever already uploaded a very high-res...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post The Solitaire Conspiracy.

    I recommend folks check out the solitaire games from Grey Alien Games, Vinny mentioned Regency Solitaire, but I particularly like Shadowhand myself. It has a lot of cool RPG trappings including equipp...

    It's wild to me that so many of these indie horror games have terrible (or no) instruction on what the heck you are supposed to be doing and also terrible flashlight implementations. Feels like they t...

    @bowl-of-lentils: I think Sakura Wars is a good comparison point for sure (and I had never heard that genre moniker before), feels like a similar ratio of narrative/visual novel segments to gameplay b...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.

    The gameplay in this actually seems like a pretty neat evolution of the RTS stuff that Vanillaware did in Grimgrimoire, and coupled with the visual novel / narrative bits, this definitely seems up my ...
