    I see Bloodroots is on sale, anyone have any thoughts on the game? Looking for a not so challenging game to pick up in this sale and had this on my watch list for ages ago.

     

    I got about halfway through it playing on the Xbox One, I thought it was alright and I had some fun with it but I found a few issues with it. Nominally it is a bit like Hotline Miami in that you are trying to chain together a series of kills to clear out an area of enemies before you can move on, the big differences being the wide range of weaponry and the fact is has an isometric view rather than top down. When it all clicks it really is great to chain together a run and it is good for something to pick up, do a couple of levels and then put down again. I had some issues with the camera view, whereas you can be much more precise with Hotline Miami's top-down view as you know where things are relative to you I had some very frustrating deaths where I didn't quite land where I thought I would. There are some platforming bits in the game that felt a bit out of place and I was glad when I got through them. Likewise I had some issues where it didn't quite control as I expected, especially when transferring from and picking up weapons which was very frustrating. I also found it quite a challenging game and I was only up to the halfway point, definitely had a harder time than I did with Hotline Miami.

     

    Hope that is of some help to you.

  2. What a lovely thread, look forward to seeing how the hydro-dipped dice come out especially the yellow and green prototype.

     

    It's a tough choice but I think the Cosy dice might be favourite so far as the colour mix is just great, reminds me of an old scarf I used to have which is probably the most middle aged thing I've ever posted. I'm a big fan of the blue quake and the sky set as well, the yellow looks great against them and really makes the numbers stand out.
