Those are fighting games right? I’m afraid that kills my interest. :(

Yeah. KLK is listed as an “arena style fighting game”, screenshots look more like Soulcalibur than Street Fighter, but essentially a 1-on-1 fighting game.

Edit: If you’re early in the show, it may not be obvious, but it becomes much more of a series of duels as the season progresses.

Yeah, it’s so energetic that it is tiring to watch, for me, and all the more intriguing because of that. ;)

And I’m a fan of Arc System Works (I really like Blazblue, Guilty Gear and UNIST), so it’s probably a must-have for me… when I have the money and the time to buy and play it. ;)

Probably my Game of the Year right here.

Pumped for this also.

With Streets of Rogue, Into the Breach, FE:TH, D3…I’m loving the switch right now.

Whoa, this snuck by me on account of it’s impossibly generic title, but it’s something I’ve been following for a while.

This is Sirlin’s stripped down Yomi-centric fighting game.

Very interested to see how it turns out.

Dan Sirlin Presents: The Chronicles of Sirlin, a Dan Sirlin Joint.

Thanks for bringing some attention to that game - I never even knew it existed, and the generic title doesn’t help! I really like fighting games, so I’m intrigued by this one as well. Thanks!

It’s David Sirlin. But the point still stands.

I decided to something a little different this week. It’s hard for me to read the list sometimes because there’s so many Switch-only releases each week, so I wondered, hey maybe I should try to list those separately. I think that makes it easier to read. The big releases I spot this week are the new Madden game for the year, and of course Oxygen Not Included, the new Klei game who did Don’t Starve.

I was thinking “uh, not that game ?” and yes, it is that ZX Spectrum game.

Well I guess it’s no worse than Sudoku 32 as far as its impact on us, but that was a strange feeling. Such an unremarkable game.

Whoa, hey, what is this? Did someone pick up the IP from Pandemic/EA?

Ha ha, I liked that game but didn’t think about it one second: my mind went straight for the antique one.

I was definitely thinking of The Saboteur from Pandemic, but alas not to be.

Paging Dr. @BrianRubin! Can you give me a quick rundown on this game? Is it a ‘proper’ RPG with a lengthy campaign or more like FTL, meant to be played in short bursts?

I hated Star Control Origins so much that I regret using the free Steam code that came with my video card instead of just giving it to someone I hate.

Hopefully others have had a better time with it and can better sway you one way or the other.

It’s more Starflight than FTL.

I didn’t enjoy the combat in SC:Origins. And that’s a core pillar of the gameplay. Not only is it not as good as modern 2D space games like Galak-Z, it’s not even as good as Star Control 1,2,3 from the 90s. This is mostly because instead of only having unique ships each with their own ability and special ability, they added a bunch of generic ships in the main campaign.

The dialog on the Aliens and adventure that you undertake seems nice, but since the bulk of the gameplay is enjoying that combat, I couldn’t stick with it. (I loved the first 3 Star Control games).

Wow, that does not sound promising at all. Thanks everyone for the feedback.

It’s a very dull, boring game.
