Of course not.
Nah, I am kiddin, I have always been and still am big on the Latin vibe.
Touché! That portrait is unfamiliar to me, actually. Not bad, for EGA.
It’s C64, and she was a maiden you couldn’t marry. Still my favourite! Enjoying a life of sin!
Of course, my only real love interest inside the game’s ever really been her.
None of those ugly, heavy galleon types could be a match to my frégate.
Almost always the Merchantman for me! Load her full of crew and prepare to board!
From all the old “classic” games from the late 70s/early 80s, the gameplay that got its deepest hooks in me was Breakout. I played a version on my Amstrad called Batty, which was probably my favorite game on the Amstrad. Obviously I never finished it, but I got really really far in the campaign in coop with my friend.
Anyway, all that to say there’s a new Breakout game coming out this week, so my wallet is definitely in danger. Also Sifu comes out this week, which is getting mixed reviews. And there’s a bunch of other releases that I haven’t heard of before, except maybe CrossfireX, which I think is a single player campaign done by Remedy Entertainment, coming straight to Game Pass.
Oof, this looks bad.
Seems to be from some shovelware publisher. The (very short) list of features includes “extra balls”.
Heard great things about this one.
Powerslave was a bit of a favourite on the old Sega Saturn! Probably not enough so to make me buy it again now though. :)
Yeah, OlliOlli looks like a lot of fun. I hope it comes to Game Pass.
You might want you check out Shadow Break, that came out last week. It’s a Japanese game where the paddle is actually a ninja, with quite nimble and powerful features, like jumping, dashing, swinging the sword you affect the ball, and more.
The game is quite short, but it’s got many chaos satisfying mechanics, and it’s fairly easy on normal difficulty, thanks to the awesomeness of the main characters.
Also you fight giant monsters. And sushi masters. It’s great, I tell you!
I’m surprised nobody ever thought of this, but it requires skill to make it that delightful to play.
Edit: and here is a link to the eShop page, now that I’m at the computer.
Ah yes, I forgot to mention the downside: it is (willfully, somewhat, as to pay homage to the Arcade version of Ninja Gaiden I speculate) ugly.
Steam has a demo of this. Evidently there is currently a gamebreaking bug, but I think that is only in the main game. Gonna give it a try tonight.
CCG game shop management sim.
Thanks. Wishlisted. The truth is that I haven’t actually played a Breakout game since Batty back in the late 80s. So I don’t actually know if the gameplay will still appeal to me 33 years later.
The big release this week is Horizon Forbidden West. And for some, Spaceflight Simulator maybe? Or a new King of Fighters?
You are kidding, right? You are having a go at us? :-D
The big release is of course TOTAL WAR WARHAMMER 3!!!1lolæ!!
TOTAL WAR WARHAMMER 3!!
I think my brain has a Warhammer blindness disease. I just can’t see the word Warhammer for some reason. My brain just filters it out. I’m sure there will be an official diagnosis one day.
The big release is Voice of Cards of course.
Wallet threat level RED! Elden Ring, the new From Software game that takes the Dark Souls formula to an open world game is out on Friday. Also out that day is GRID Legends! I’ll likely play the 10 hour preview on EA Play, and if it’s good, god help my wallet. The Final Fantasy VI new PC conversion could be a wallet threat. From the early reviews it sounds like The Witch Queen is substantial enough that it could be called Destiny 3, so I’m sure that’s a major wallet threat too.
That reminds me, I keep meaning to use an Oculus discount code for that. Next time I will!
I might get this one eventually. Gotta finish the first one, but I really enjoyed what I played.
