    Digital Down-Low for 10/30/2020: Terror Comes to Tiny Town

    I don't want any confusion on this matter; every game I'm about to mention are made entirely out of *videos*. So we're starting off with something I overlooked last week, but should have commented on; Strife! A re-release of a mid 90s RPG/FPS hybrid that I have never heard of before, but the...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/23/2020: Toy War-y

    If you think about it, the opposite of a prospector is an amateur-spector, and that's just another way of saying "ghost". Outpost Delta is how I choose to kick things off this week, since it's the first thing I saw in the eShop that made me go "Oh, okay!". It didn't make me do that super...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/15/2020: Crashing In and Rude // Comes a cry of D00D!

    Man, I thought of a really good intro statement this week and everything. Totally blanking on it now. Oh well. So first off, on everything except Switch (and next week; on Switch) we have Torchlight 3! Torchlight 2, as history has shown, was an extremely good follow-up to Diablo 2 that...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/08/2020: The Little Critters of Nature, they don't know that they're ugly

    MEANWHILE, IN VIDEO LAND! Ninth Dawn III: Shadow of Erthil is what Nintendo told me to list first this week, and who am I to disagree with them? This here is an open-world RPG that goes for a kinda latter Ultima-y kind of vibe, and also goes for a kitchen-sink approach to its gameplay; since...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/01/2020: It Isn't Alwas Ysy

    When all you've got is a Forklift, all your problems look like forks that need to be lifted. Alwa's Legacy is the sequel to the excellent, and underappreciated Alwas' Awakening, an explore-em-up that, for one thing, played less like Metroid or Castlevania and more like Solomons Key or Castle...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/24/2020: I Can't Believe It's Not Smash Brothers!

    An entire game made of VIDEOS? Pretty outlandish, if you ask me! Castlestorm 2 is the sequel to Castlestorm (as helpfully implied by the 2 in the title), and while I did NOT play that game, the fact that Zen Studios' output is consistently enjoyable enough that I feel confident in asusming it's...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/17/2020: Super the Return of the Jumpmen

    If everyone reading this thread donated just $50 a week, I'd be able to keep Digital Down-Low going for Eight Hundred Million Years. Donate today. First up is, what would easily be the headliner on a normal week, but, well... competition is fiercer than anyone expected now; and it is Spelunky...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/10/2020: Back to School Edition

    Don't be a TOMMY TEXTER, Make sure you turn off your cellphones so everybody can enjoy this weeks new games thread. And, for starters, what if you've already made the decision that you have every game released this week because none of them are janky JRPGs made in a proprietary Dragon Quest...
  9. Octopus Prime

    Digital Down-Low for 09/03/2020: Face Front, True Believers

    It's crazy how many games are video these days! Starting off with The Avengers, a game that I wasn't aware was out this week until TheSL pointed it out one post below this one! It's a co-opy Aciton RPG kind of thingy that's not so much like the Ultimate Alliance games as much as it is like A 3D...

    Please tag this thread.

    The rules governing tags on TT 2.0 were simple: a thread's creator could post five, other users could post two each, threads could have a maximum of 25 tags, and the character limit was always one less than the really good goof you just thought of. But here? Here the situation is less clear...

    Digital Down-Low for 08/27/2020: Geocities burning with AngelFire

    New week, New Games, New Forum, let's mosey, shall we? First up is what would be the headliner on a week where I wasn't spoiled for choice on what to headline with, we have No Straight Roads. A game which I had assumed, based on the title and nothing else, to be a sad and contemplative game...
