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

I just picked up Celeste on sale on Steam recently, so I'm probably going to give that a go in the next few days. I actually just picked up a few other well-regarded recent 2D games during the Spring Sale on GOG.com with some birthday money - Gris, Katana Zero, The Messenger and Ape Out, along with ...

Re: All the way through?

Finished Castlevania: Bloodlines (originally for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive, played here on The Castlevania Anniversary Collection for the PS4) using John Morris (the traditional whip-wielding character). Short, fast, straightforward action game with memorable bosses and setpieces (especially regard...

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 ...

Re: The Stanley Parable

I put about 90 minutes into this game back around 2014-5 and got maybe six of the endings. I never read anything about it so I didn't know about the number of endings or the crazy means to get one of them - I think I got it based on Yahtzee's recommendation (pretty sure it was his number one game th...

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 originally played through the game probably about 8-9 years ago and I only intended to play through the opening puzzles (I wanted to revisit the giant spider section since I always considered it the high...

Re: Freedom Planet (Switch)

When I started playing Freedom Planet I was FLOORED by how similar it was to the classic Sonic games for the Genesis. I mean, the style, the controls, the stage layouts... everything. There's are loops, springs, gems to collect... even the explosions look and sound the same. Freedom Planet began as...

Re: Lethal Enforcers 3 (arcade)

I don't think there's anything wrong with writing about a game you've watched footage of but haven't played, but you have to disclose that in from the beginning (and also maybe label the review as "Impression" or "First Impressions" like Buttermancan said) to account for the limi...

Re: Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn (PS4)

I remember watching SuperBestFriendsPlay (who played through a number of beat-em-ups on their channel) go through the first level as a one-off and thinking the game looked cheap and monotonous except for Shaq's voice-acting, but if there's more to it than that I'll pick it up for $5 one day since I ...

Re: Blasphemous (Switch/PS4/XBox One/PC)

Currently about 15 hours in/75 percent of the map, still a very solid game. The combat is very satisfying, especially as you continue to upgrade your moveset - it becomes less about hacking away at your enemies and more about exploiting the invincibility frames of your slashes and dodges and bringin...

Re: Streets of Rage 4 is Coming

I lost track of this game but two new characters have been revealed in the meantime - Adam Hunter from the original SoR and a new grappling character named Floyd Iraia, who has cyborg arms (almost like a combo of Max and Zan). The BIGGEST announcement (and the one the Critic will be most excited for...
