Of this has been heard many a glowing report. Enthused, rightly I am for my forthcoming testimonial.

Abby. It’s actually really easy to keep the two apart. A rouge-LIKE, is a game the is similar in mechanics to (or LIKE) and old game called Rouge. A rouge-LITE has fewer calories and but a flatter taste. You seem to be in good shape. I think you will be fine with the full bodied version.

I heard good things about this and checked it out, and it’s a whole lot of fun, if unforgiving. I highly recommend pairing the giant stone fists with the beserking move - almost beat the final boss with that combo last night

I know it's just regular pixel art but at the same time.... The look of this game!!!

This is very reminiscent to Hyper Light Drifter, I might have to pick it up.

Not be a downer but Abby needs to stop saying "I will also say that". She literally says it in every quicklook and beastcast. I get that trying to describe something is hard sometimes. Just wanted to point it out.

Vinny was out sick last week and I think he is on the west coast for E3 this week. We probably won't get Exquisite Corps until the next Monday.

@almeida69: It's tough when doing public speaking, vocal ticks will come out. We all do them, but we don't have hundreds of hours of recordings of our voice for people to hear :D I say "honestly" every other sentence when presenting at work. Just something to work on and get better at, which I'm sure she will.

At the risk of seeming uncool, is the "Hearing good things about this am excited to check it out" a meme or some kind of bot attack?

Did they intentionally try to give this the most generic title and look possible?

Roguelike = A game like Rouge. A top down turn based dungeon crawling RPG with permadeath and randomised elements e.g. Tales of Maj'Eyal or Caves of Qud.

Roguelite = A game that takes a couple of elements from Rogue, e.g. permadeath, randomisation and some RPG systems, but usually a game in a totally different genre to a turn based dungeon crawling RPG e.g. every game GBeast calls a Rougelike because reading a couple of sentences takes much more effort than constantly complaining that you don't want to learn something.

Or everyone on the team can talk like they do. When you see/hear them all the time you will notice things more often. Like when someone send the bombcast an email pointing out how often they say "huh" or "hmm" just how people talk.

The game seems great but the music is just the most generic and overly grandiose orchestral schlock I’ve heard in quite some time. Having watched a few streamers play this it got on my nerves almost instantly and it doesn’t help that the loops are very short and so it’s also very repetitive generic and overly grandiose schlock
