Wallet Threat Level

I’m really looking forward to trying this out. I know it’s been out on PC for a while but I like the idea of action-based combat on a console MMORPG.

Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo escaping the Japanese eshop, sweet!
The extra remix mode of Puyo Puyo looks pretty neat.

Wasn’t Invisigun @geggis’ darling?

I enjoyed watching Tom play Remnant: From The Ashes, so its on my radar.

It wasn’t on my radar at all. I don’t think I had even heard of it until this morning. But it’s tempting me quite a bit right now…

Re: Remnant

I watched part of Tom’s video. On the one hand, I hate that he was spending so much time in the inventory, or just walking around. On the other hand, when he’s in combat against that giant Ent creature, it looked pretty fun.

Yeah! Invisigun Heroes is a fantastic, smart and super polished local (and online) multiplayer game. The updated Invisigun Reloaded has a proper single-player campaign as well as cross-play, so I’ll finally be able to play it with some of my console friends. I’ve been raving about it to them for years and it doesn’t get enough love. Shadi has worked tirelessly on it since its original PC release and I hope it gets the success it deserves on Switch.

A couple of big releases this week. Control from Remedy is a big one. Astral Chain from Platinum is a Nintendo exclusive, that comes out this Friday.

Want, waiting for console reviews.

Waiting for my copy to unlock. 🤟

Haven’t heard of anything else, other than a couple titles I don’t want.

So, anyone remember this game from E3? It certainly looked different. And the Eurogamer review made it sound pretty intriguing. It’s definitely a game trying to express something. After reading the review, I’m not sure if it was able to do so, or it showed the restrictions of the video game medium.


That game needs a demo. I watched someone play it on Twitch and it didn’t grab me at all. Maybe it’s the type of game you need to experience first-hand.

Din’s Legacy is out this week. If you’re a fan of Soldak’s action RPGs, this is a definite wallet threat.


I see that Din’s Legacy Patch 1.000 came out a couple of days ago, but that it’s still listed as an Early Access game. Did they just forget to flip a switch on Steam? Or is it supposed to leave early access later this week (or later today)?

There’s some sort of crazy @Steven_Peeler math involved in which the game hit 1.0 a few days ago, but it wasn’t technically out of early access until today. Probably a metric system thing or something.


Today, according to your original post.

I edited that in after Tom’s last post. :-P

A new week. Apparently there’s a new Monster Hunter expansion coming out. That’s not a thread I have visited recently, but I bet there’s a lot of Qt3 members really excited about that one. Final Fantasy 8 remastered? I’d be tempted if someone assured me that it was a short game, but it probably isn’t. Torchlight 2 is coming to consoles? After all these years? Hopefully someone did a good job with the port. I wonder if the original PC version is being patched so that you can play it with the controller instead of the mouse? Creature in the Well sounds really interesting, it’s a pinball-inspired hack and slash. The slot machine game called NBA2k20 also comes out this week. Wooooo!

I’m excited about Iceborne, but I’ll have to wait until January 2020 for it (PC). This week, I’m somewhat intrigued by Children of Morta, though.

Tom ruined Children of Morta for me, its a beautiful pixel game with an unpleasant spider boss battle. I know I won’t have the skill to get far in it. :)

What is a pixel game? Is that a new genre I don’t know about?

Its a game where the pixels are visually stunning and the focus of the game, not the gameplay. ;)

@KristiGaines did I correctly define the genre?
