Re: Rank these (now) 5 highly praised modern 2D games...

I've never played Ori, so I can't weigh in on it. The Critic's review makes it sound subpar though. I'd try Axiom Verge if it were me. However, I've since played Hollow Knight, so I can revise my prior ranking to be: 1. Hollow Knight 2. Shovel Knight 3. Celeste (Still haven't played Axiom Verge.) Gu...

Re: PS3 Eulogy

A sad day.. Sucks to lose one of the backward compatible models... My Slim is still going strong; played it tonight. Just started Asura's Wrath; seems promising so far.

Re: Time for The Critic to do a set of reviews based on post-apocalyptic scenarios...

^ For $5, it's a steal - practically an A game. I got bored after 2 or 3 playthroughs, but you'll easily get your money's worth for $5. I played the PS4 version. They say the PC version is even better, because it's a little nicer to have the keyboard and mouse. (That said, if you only play console g...

Re: 2019/4/20: Nintendo Switch: Hollow Knight

With you 100% on that SOTN soundtrack. It's the only game that I've ever played where, literally halfway through, I just had to own the soundtrack and imported it for like $30 from ebay. I'm sure that played an important role in making the game so great. I like Hollow Knight's ambiance music, and I ...

Re: The Stanley Parable

I've heard good things about this one. Game Informer recently ranked it at #204 on their 300 Best Video Games of All-Time. That's what first drew my attention to it. But it was only released on PC and I haven't played a game on my PC in like 10+ years. Maybe I'll make an exception. But hey, don't sl...

Re: 2019/4/20: Nintendo Switch: Hollow Knight

Well, I've finally jumped on the Hollow Knight wagon. Bought it for the PS4 and have been playing it the past couple months. I've been a fan of Metroidvania games since Castlevania SOTN, so you guys piqued my interest with the rave reviews. I mean, the Critic gave it an A+ and a couple guys called i...

Re: The Last Guy (PS3) - great hidden gem for retro gamers

I finished up this game today. It's good for about 4-5 hours of fun before my interest waned, but still had a good time with it. It had around 15-20 levels. If you're a fan of going for high scores, you can go back through the levels trying to improve your score and level rating. But for me, I was j...

Re: GameStop Instructs Employees to Ignore Law Enforcement And Not Shut Down

Yeah, Gamestop is clearly non-essential, and I suspect the bad publicity from this will force them to follow the shutdowns. Their position about staying open isn't just news among gamers - I've seen it on mainstream news sites too. So the pressure will catch up with them. However, we all know GameSt...

Re: Time for The Critic to do a set of reviews based on post-apocalyptic scenarios...

Well, the Fallout series immediate came to mind for me. But for a little hidden gem on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, check out "This War of Mine". It's like The Sims set during a war, where you live day-to-day and try to survive, while working to feed and defend yourself and your family. You also...

Re: All the way through?

I bought the Limbo/Inside bundle on sale a few days ago and I just completed Limbo last night. . . . . I do think the game was a bit overhyped when it came out (it's certainly not of the level of the Portal games, for instance) but it's worth a look on sale today - you can often get it in the $2-5 ...
