  1. People like Far: Lone Sails for this sort of thing. Personally, I didn't really get on with it, but it might fit the bill for what you're looking for.
  2. The updates change things MASSIVELY. Do it - I'm back in and loving it.
  3. I'd love to get into some online games on ps4 but I'm still at a fairly low level. Are there rllmuk ps4 lobbies going? What times do people play?
  4. Quickest "this is great" to uninstall I've ever experienced, I think.
  5. Pyre is unique and interesting. And they put a lot of effort into making the story adapt to the match outcomes. You could literally lose every match and not have to go back and retry.
  6. For an intro to fighting games, Fantasy Strike does a pretty damn good job. Mechanics are boiled down the basics, execution is simple, movelists are short, but the basic fundamentals of fighting games are all there. It even has tutorial videos for each character that explain the pros and cons on their moves and general gameplay. Things like frame advantage and player states (invincible, super armour, parrying) are displayed through colour coding and hit markers. Importantly, it drastically cuts down the time between picking up the game (or new character) for the first time to being competent enough to fight strategically.
  7. Supergiant Games have never put out a dud. Also, Transistor is very unique. Definitely worth that sale price if you haven't played it.
  8. I gave Paradise Killer a try and it's really got its hooks in me. It's absolutely my jam. My leads are really running dry now and I think I've got a lot figured out, but there a couple things eluding me. Can anyone point me in the right direction for:
  9. I'm trying to unlock shortcuts so I can practise some of the later areas. Any tips for getting a helper past world 4 without them killing themselves?
  10. Damn. I got it on Steam a while back but that is a perfect switch game.
  11. Isn't it really obvious? If you press the attack button (after a dash or not), it's an attack and scales off attack bonuses.
  12. Cosmic Star Heroine. It's got a really interesting battle system based on comboing and building up to a big attack at just the right time as a team. They've also managed to eliminate spamming attack and hoarding items (literally impossible in this).
  13. Artemis pretty much. She has good duos with practically everyone and crits are always welcome. It's a rare day that I turn down Aphrodite, too.
  14. It's incredibly basic. The thing i dislike about it the most is that the colours that are used to indicate completed numbers aren't they same from one puzzle to the next. What a weird choice! On top of that, as bradigor said, sometimes the colours used for incomplete and complete numbers are grey/blue and blue/grey respectively. Useless! I wanted to turn off the music almost instantly, too.
  15. I've always wanted to like Ni No Kuni. God, that game is dull.
  16. I really enjoyed this; it pieces out the narrative between runs in the same way as Hades, meaning you're never too frustrated when you die, as you get to see more of what's happening in the family home. The different characters all play very differently and you're encouraged to play as different characters on runs. (Wait, is this Hades?) The levelling up and meta-progression is a little slow, though. (it takes a couple of runs with each character to actually be able to use your full suite of skills, which is a bit annoying in early runs). I'd definitely recommend trying it if you've got Game Pass. If you can, play it in co-op; I imagine you'll get even more out of it. Not as good as Hades, though.
  17. I think you can play Overcooked using half of a pad (so that two players can share one)
  18. I know Asira's Wrath isn't that old, but is there a modern equivalent?
  19. What a brilliant phrase to describe the appeal of this game
  20. Give me a remake of PoP 2008 and I'm in.
  21. I wasn't expecting such an impressive showing. Wow.
