I have already mentioned this twice before realizing there was a thread just for it  :-[
I picked up The Touryst, which is Shin'en's latest game. The one with the Minecrafty art style. I am not sure what it is about, just trusting the devs for quality.

Some great picks here. I ended up getting The Touryst because it was the first decent price drop I had seen on it, but my wish list was full of sales. From the above games I will second Inside/Limbo as you probably can pick those up with gold coins and finish each one in an evening so it should not break the bank or add to your backlog.

Puppets probably cost them pretty penny, considering they were from Henson company:

Pronouncing "caesar" as "kae-sar" is the correct Latin pronunciation.

General Gaming / What is everyone getting from the Steam and eshop sales!?!
« Last post by pokepal148 on Yesterday at 02:28:46 PM »
I picked up about a dozen or so games so far. I might go back for another pass, I haven't decided yet.

Either way my haul is as follows.

  • To the Moon - It's supposed to be a really good game I've heard great things about.

  • Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet - The game is something of a spiritual successor to Freedom Wars in terms of gameplay and while the gameplay in Freedom Wars isn't the reason to play the game Freedom Wars is still one of the better Monster Hunter clones out there.
  • Minit - The game's description gave me half minute hero vibes and that was enough for me at that price.

  • OneShot - It just looks weird
  • Thimbleweed Park is a game I already had on Switch but it is a point and click. Point and click games should be played with Keyboard and Mouse.

  • Flower is a neat tech demo-y thing that I want to be able to play in bed sometime but the Vita version lacks the graphical quality that game deserves.

  • The Frog Fractions DLC gives you a hat and is totally not supposed to be a second campaign for the game.

  • Super Squidlit and Squidlit are a pair of charming Game Boy style platformers. I already played Squidlit on Switch but the game is like an hour long and was only 55 cents on Steam.

  • Whispers of a Machine and Kathy Rain: Director's Cutare a pair of interesting looking point and click games with cool spritework based on the trailer.

  • NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits was supposed to be a really good Wiiware game that managed to escape to Steam.

What did everyone else get?

Small change. BIG difference.

someone submit it before it's too late for them to change their minds.

Demon Slayer for Switch keeps the top slot. What shall we see when we get the back-to-back of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes and Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak....

Those are soooo much better than the official one.

Whoever got paid to design those practice jerseys should be ashamed, fired, and replaced by whomever did these fan designs. LOL

Speaking of the practice jerseys, the same fan also made the black jersey much better with the simple addition of the mountain.

Didn't have a Switch yet when I got A.I. so I played it on Steam.  The story had all the cool twists and turns that I dug out of the Zero Escape series, but the gameplay is not as strong.  It is much more a visual novel than Zero Escape as it doesn't have the puzzle solving of the escape rooms.  But for this price, if you're even remotely interested you should go for it.  Though I'm kind of bummed out to hear that the sequel has different dialogue if you played the first game, as I plan on getting the sequel on the Switch but will miss out because of splitting the games across platforms.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions was my second favourite Wii U game (a certain Switch launch title was number 1).  Actually it is thematically similar to A.I. in that it takes place in modern day Japan and has a lot of idol culture stuff.  I don't think I expected that theme to connect with me but it appears to have.  The music is whatever with me but I dig getting a view of Japanese culture.

Hades has been on my radar for a while because it reviewed so well.  Do I take the plunge on this deal?  Eh, I've got a bit of a backlog going...  I have almost two weeks to think about it... Hmmmm.
