  1. The Nintendo Direct trailer for Bravely Default 2 convinced me to pick this up, so I’ve played an hour of it. First impressions are not particularly positive. It’s nice that the game has Japanese voices but the whole thing is very cliched and the story seems quite bare bones/my first rpg, but we’ll see. Combat seems totally unremarkable, the default/brave system doesn’t seem particularly interesting or clever. All in all, it seems like a poor man’s Octopath Traveler (although that also suffered from bare bones writing). Also, these party chats seem to be totally asinine and I don’t know why they included them in the game at all. I noticed a few of you praised the 3D which I have set to off but I might try to play the game in 3D if that is one of the more impressive aspects of it.
  2. I thought the same thing when they gave Dragon Quest XI 68% but I ended up agreeing with that review more than any other.

    Great news. Could probably split these posts off into a new thread some I’m sure there will be enough interest.

    Bravely Default II

    Same character designer worked on Four Heroes of Light and the Bravely Default series. I’m sure a lot of the same staff worked on both.
  6. Bob Dylan has released a new 17 minute song about the assassination of JFK.

    Bravely Default II

    Yeah this kind of pushed me over the line regards getting the 3DS games. I’ll probably dive into the first game at some stage this year.
  8. Not much there for me other than a reminder that I should catch up on the Bravely Default series I guess. There are simply too many good games for me to play through XC again.

    Finally played this for 90 minutes earlier and I’m about to dive back in right now. Enjoyed what I played so far. Experienced one crash within the first five minutes but since then it’s been smooth. Like Maf said it zips along at a fair old pace. It reminds me more of Metroid Prime than most “Metroidvanias” do. The ambient music is a bit forgettable though. I wish they had gone with something more tuneful.

    Falcon Punch

    New Nintendo focused print magazine. Sounds cool. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2020/03/falcon_punch_is_a_new_nintendo-focused_print_magazine_and_it_sounds_amazing @merman1974 Know any of the people involved in this?
  11. Waxahatchee’s new album is out on Friday and I’m really looking forward to it. Guitar sounds very like Suspicious Minds. Cool song. Also, Father John Misty has released a 20-song live album called “Off-Key in Hamburg” on Bandcamp. It’s great. https://fatherjohnmisty.bandcamp.com/album/off-key-in-hamburg-2 A new album from him would be nice.

    Stalker 2

    Brace yourself, the first screenshot lol... https://www.gematsu.com/2020/03/stalker-2-first-screenshot Message from the developers in the link.
  14. The Messenger developers have launched a Kickstarter for their next game, Sea of Stars. An rpg in the style of Chrono Trigger. Looks lovely.
  15. Tomb Raider is free to own forever on Steam if you pick it up this weekend.
  16. Baldo was the standout by a mile for me and The Last Campfire looks cool. No update on Hollow Knight: Silksong, Crosscode or games like Cris Tales or Spiritfarer which is a shame. Ending on Exit the Gungeon wasn’t very exciting.

    A Short Hike

    Finished it. You can continue exploring after you finish which is nice. Easy game to recommend. I love how people tell you things and then you later encounter that thing they told you about or whatever, it’s great. I thoroughly enjoyed it (without collecting everything) but I think it would also be a great “my first game” for young children. Or girlfriends if you wanted to introduce them to gaming.

    A Short Hike

    This is free on EGS this week. I love what I’ve played so far. As the title suggests, the goal is to hike up a mountain, but aside from that there is a whole island to explore which is like a playground full of secrets to find and colourful characters. It’s kind of like Breath of the Wild in miniature. I think children would love this game too.
  24. Mortal Kombat 4 from way back in 1997 was also suddenly released on GOG: https://www.gog.com/game/mortal_kombat_4
