    Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth and the search for more action

    Team Ladybug's latest and ongoing treatise on the genre some call... whatever they please, really, has reached its latest early access milestone: stages 3 and 4 went live today, meaning that the game is now 80% complete, or thereabouts. Whether you're waiting for the full release to dip in, or...

    A Night at the Met...troidvania

    Oh, hello, I didn't see you come in. My name is Octo, and you might remember me from our annual MEGAMAS thread, where we collectively try to beat down as many Mega Man bosses as we possibly can. Well, I recently came to the discovery that there are other genres of video game I like besides...

    Touhou Luna Nights for Switch: stop time and search action

    It's finally here: one of the best games in the search 'em up genre has through many twists and turns finally landed on the Switch's impending release list, scheduled for December 17th. Luna Nights originally launched in full in early 2019 for Steam, and maybe you saw me gush about it then on...

    Whipping A Dead Mr. Hed: The Castlevania Thread Of Sacred Remains

    Despite the series still being rather moribund, Castlevania still deserves a thread for discussing old games and foolishly hoping for new ones. I have decided that I need to give Simon's Quest another go. There is no part of this game that appeals to me, but it's Castlevania, and I feel I must...

    Alwa's Legacy

    Two years ago, indie developer Elden Pixels released a great little game called Alwa's Awakening. For those unfamiliar with it, you can watch its trailer here. I highly recommend it! It stands as one of the most inventive search action games (or "metroidvania") I've played: it takes its...

    A Thread Named FIGHT!: Talking about the Robot of the same name

    The old forums had the perfect thread title and I couldn't really improve on it, so here we are! A Robot Named FIGHT came out in 2017, first on Steam and later on Switch, and it's basically a Roguelite Super Metroid (a Metroguelite, if you will) that really gives 110% in that impersonation. From...

    Hollow Knight: The Dark Souls of bug games

    So I was pretty LTTP on Hollow Knight, having only just started playing it shortly before TT 2.0 came to an end. I just now beat it, having toppled the real actual final boss, and ending with 99% completion at 31 hours 20 minutes played. I have not yet completed the final boss of the Grimm...

    Bloodstained: The Dracula-Style Monster Castle Game

    Well, only a matter of time before this thread was made, and I like that thread title, so I wanted in on the ground floor! Anyway, Ritual of the Night got its Colour/Revenge update for Switch recently, and while I haven't touched that yet (outside of giving Miriam a spiffy new hair-dye...
