Re: Cuphead (Xbox One)

Any chance this gets released on physical media? Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it. The game has already received a "physical release" that consisted of a case with a download code and an art cell from the game. I have no idea why - I'd think that they'd be limiting the amount of pot...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Saw "I Bury the Living" this weekend. A man who's elected chairman of a cemetery discovers people die when he marks their plots as occupied. Interesting, but with a dissapointing ending. Well made. Some scenes are stagey, but that's normal for a 50's film, and they pull off some interesti...

Re: Cuphead (Xbox One)

Just played it for about 90 minutes and it feels like at least a A- to me. Gunstar Heroes is probably the closest comparison. Just an absolute joy to play so far - you can feel the love and attention to detail that where poured into this game and there's a new surprise or discovery around every corn...

Re: E3!

I had a few extra days off in a row than normal so I took an evening to go through the conferences (via the Super Best Friends) and I was surprised by how much I was interested in: - Daemon x Machina (cool-looking mech game for the Switch) - Ghost of Tsushima (Sucker Punch made the PS2 Sly Cooper ga...

Re: Favorite boss fights?

Psycho Mantis is a great pick - that was unlike anything I'd ever seen in 1998. Here's a few - I'm sure I'll think of more later: God of War 2 - The Colossus of Rhodes: Just the most ridiculously epic beginning to a game ever. The game is full of great bosses to be fair. Batman: Arkham Asylum - The ...

Re: Mega Man 11 looks amazing!

Also what do you think of the $30 price tag for Mega Man 11 and how does Mega Man 11 visually fair compare to the final version of Mighty No. 9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YngbHOz--oc. You can tell that Mega Man 11 looks more like a current gen game where Mighty No. 9 looks like a bad bargain b...

Re: Mega Man 11 looks amazing!

Looks good - I kinda wish they'd gone with the fully-animated Shantae/Skullgirls look, but this style of 3d has almost as much character and personality so I'm okay with it. Looks challenging, they've come up with some new wrinkles in the gameplay but it's still old-school. Even the voice-acting is ...

Re: Arcade stick for the Switch?

$150 is pretty much what you'd expect to pay for a good arcade stick. Back when I played fighting games on a regular basis I had a Hori Soul Calibur V arcade stick for the 360 and it was top-notch. Also, unlike some cheaper sticks where everything is glued in place, the buttons and joystick are made...

Re: Neo Geo (Simple games)

This is a reflection of modern game thinking, which is that the whole point is "getting to the end". In the old school, playing the game is a joy it of itself. That's why we can play old games over and over, indefinitely. And it's not just about seeing everything a game has to offer, it's...

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (8-bit Castlevania III-style game)

I knew about Koji Igarashi's wildly successful Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - an opportunity for him to make a new game in the style of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. What I didn't know was that one of the stretch goals was for an 8-bit game in the style of Castlevania III ...
