@Stanshall Have you seen these?

Got one on order, will let you know how it fares...can't wait to try Ikaruga.  And Downwell! 

 

 

 

 

Very pleased with mine, I got one through the Kickstarter so it was a surprise when it turned up. Well worth it for shmups on the go. I tend to play docked 90% of the time but I've had a few long journeys recently and the FlipGrip was a winner. Thanks for thinking of me!

Some of us here already have them and would like to let you know they're fucking great.

 

Excellent.  I'm only in here sporadically, so this passed me by. :)

I tend to play 90% handheld, so this will be a welcome addition.  I saw that you post about shmups a lot so thought I'd give you a nod!

StarTropics is up on the NES app today. First time I’ve played it. I will now nag for a StarTropics remake every time a Direct is announced. It’s much better than either of the Zeldas. I’m getting Link’s Awakening vibes from it. Probably for the best that I hadn’t played it when those Retro rumours were doing the rounds. That outcome would have hurt.

This War of Mine is finally on sale in the EU. I love This War of Mine.

 

For anyone who missed it on PC/other consoles, it's a very bleak (but also very moving) 2D survival game where your objective is to forge a desperate existence from the wreckage of an Eastern European city half-destroyed by an ongoing war. During the day you switch between three different characters to perform tasks around your shared dilapidated home, almost Sims-style (think The Sims developed by Andrei Tarkovsky). At night you sneak out to numerous locations around the city to try to loot buildings for much-needed supplies without getting yourself killed.

 

Do you steal the last scraps of food from a starving pensioner's fridge to take home to your dying housemate? Do you risk your life and your housemates' welfare to stop an armed soldier from raping a civilian or do you slink home with your paltry loot and tell yourself there was nothing you could have done? You probably die within the next few days anyway. It is brutal and gut-wrenching and engrossing.

 

There's a new story mode now too which I haven't touched yet (anyone tried it?) with a couple more story campaigns apparently coming out soon.

 

I've been playing it since last night and it appears to be an excellent port so far. Still pretty pricey even with 40% off but that at least brings it in line with the Steam price.

Let us know what it's like! I'm also interested in it, but having just bought Baba Is You, I may hold off unless it's amazing.

Just bought it. And Baba is you yesterday as well. I'll post some impressions on a bit.

I am Setsuna for £15?

I kinda enjoyed it. It's incredibly basic and there's not much going on in world design, but sometimes I enjoy a simple JRPG. It's hard to recommend over many of the JRPGs on the system these days, though.

Square Enix has a bunch of games half price at the moment. World of Final Fantasy, FFXV Pocket Edition, Romancing Saga 2 and the by all accounts very mediocre Tokyo RPG Factory games. Opted for Romancing Saga 2 myself - looks almost Dragon Questy.

OK, I've put about an hour into it.

 

Concerns first: I think it's pretty short. There's 108 stages, and I've done 40 of them already. It takes its time introducing new mechanics and making sure you get how they work before moving on, so you race through the early stages. However, things are starting to get pretty complex. 

 

Basically, it's a puzzle game where you're given a set number of moves in order to putt the golf ball. For example, you may have a '3 space' card and need to putt the ball 2 spaces away. If you aim for it, you'll overshoot so you have to bounce it off the wall behind you, which counts as one step. Pretty quickly, you end up with stages with slopes, bunkers (which stop your forward momentum) and water hazards (which place the ball in the square next to the hazard - crucial for figure out in some of the later stages). 

 

I just spent a good 10 minutes figuring out a level, so things are ramping up nicely. And it's only £4.49, so I feel by the end I'll have my money's worth. But don't go in expecting a long game.

Yooka Laylee 50% off on eShop right now is it worth it?

Ehhhhhhhh. It's meant to be a great port, but the game itself is just dull. I played it on the XBox and gave up on the 2nd world.

Nah it's rubbish. I backed it on Kickstarter and never even finished the game on PS4. Camera, controls and level design are all distinctly below par. Some of the levels are basically just a giant sprawling mess of mediocre minigames.
