    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Damn this game was good. Only got 104% and it took me 117 hours. Definitely reminded me that I’m not as good as I used to be at challenging games. Nearly gave up multiple times, probably because I was attempting things my character level wasn’t ready to. Things I liked: - Worldbuilding and subtle story. What a brilliant setting and civilisation. - Character and enemy designs are very creative with lots of personality. - Charm system was surprisingly deep allowing for genuinely different play styles and approaches to combat. - Traveling around was lots of fun, just swishing your nail and affecting the environment. - So much extra content. Great value for money. The devs have earned every cent of their success. Things I didn’t like: - Difficulty was on the ‘too hard’ side of hard for me. Nearly gave up multiple times, but gamers with the mad skills will be fine. - Some checkpoints and travelling stations felt too far away and perhaps artificially extended the length of the game. - Some of the hidden stuff was a little too well hidden?? I often found myself thinking, ‘how would anyone find/learn this?’ I definitely needed a guide at times (maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention). But maybe that’s the point, to engage with the community and learn the secrets you couldn’t find yourself. If not for God of War this probably would be my GOTY. Highly recommended, one of the best Indie games around and one of the best on the Switch (and I dont even like Metroid/Soulsvania game). 9/10 Going back to get some missing charm notches and fight a few beasties.

    Finally got a Switch. Picked up: - Battle Chasers: Nightwar - Hollow Knight - Streetfighter 30th Anniversary - Garou: Maro of the Wolves. Next up: - Zelda: BOTW - Mario Kart 8 It’s a neat wee system and I’ve not even plugged it into the TV yet.

    What’s Bluepoint remaking next?

    If it’s MGS1, would it just be a hi-fidelity remake or add some gameplay additions from something like MGS3 (CQC) or MGSV (marking via scope)? (I cant see how the mechanics from MGSV would translate well because of MGS1s more linear environment)

    Re Iwobi, I think the World Cup will be important for his development. Some players go to the cup and play a blinder and it moves their career up a gear (remember James from Columbia?). Iwobi is still young. Just when I think he’ll never be good enough, he surprises me. At 21 he is a back up to Özil and he’ll learn a lot from him. I can’t work out if he’s fast or slow when he runs, though. He looks like he should be super quick, but not sure if he is. People seem to get round him a lot.

    Quite enjoyable that. Apart from stumbling over the line and dragging i5 ou5 at the end. I expect NZ v England to be a very interesting series.

    Any word on whether this is coming to Switch yet?

    Quite a boring Ashes series, really. NZ smashed the hell out of the Windies in all formats and now giving Pakistan a bit of a seeing-to as well. Has me wondering if the only real interesting match ups we’ll see is at tournaments where everyone apart from the home nation are in foreign conditions...

    Jeez, What a bullshit pen. City's Ederson was able to save his, though.

    Agreed. Why wait until the aeries is over to show up. No Mitchell Starc is probably a factor, he's so bloody lethal.

    Been really nice watching Cook hit these runs. 8th on the all time runs list now.

    Owzzat? Anyone play cricket games? Discuss them here

    *Ahem* Thought I'd do a plug for the cricket game I created for iOS and Android. IOS App store Google Play Store It's called T20 Card Cricket, and it's a blend of memory card-matching and cricket. Match identical cards to score runs and avoid Howzat cards as you tackle 270 challenges to become the best batsman of all time. It's not a pure cricket game but good for the daily commute or if you just can't watch another batting collapse/your team getting flogged around the park. ps - not optimised for iPhone X which came out right as we were about to release. We’ll fix it in an update in the New Year.

    T20 Card Cricket (iOS/Android)

    T20CC is trending on the Aussie Google Play Store. Kinda cool. Edit: also popping up in other trending areas too. Trending apps, trending games and other areas, not just in subcategories like cards/sports

    T20 Card Cricket (iOS/Android)

    There's a minor update for both versions in their respective stores now. Unfortunately Chartboost are ignoring our ad frequency fix because they didnt make the plugin we used. We've had to hardcode a hack to reduce the ad frequency to every second game. Not ideal but better than it was. Sorry everyone! I have to say, releasing a game is much harder than actually making it. I'm proud of what we achieved. It was a two man project with my part time dev doing the code and me doing everything else (art, design, business, UI/UX etc...) until the publisher came in at the end to help with release (although we had a couple of contributors chip in with some work too). EDIT: the new ad system seems to be working. I’ve not been seeing a lot of ads all the time. Much better user experience now.
