Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
Busy weekend for me, so I’ll keep it short. Throughout the week I gave my Switch a lot of love and finished up Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (excellent), Minit (also excellent), and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (equally excellent).
I ended up reviewing Superbrothers, which you can read here if you’d like! It’s a rad adventure game with a heavy emphasis on music (the OST is *incredible*), great pixel art, and an oddly told tragic narrative. I loved it.
Minit is like if Undertale and The Legend of Zelda had a baby and each of your lives only lasted 60 seconds. Everything you collect and all of your upgrades persists through death and you can unlock different starting points, so it’s all about discovering new locations, power-ups, and figuring out how to progress further and further with each death. I love its simplistic, monochromatic art style, its sense of humor, and found it to be one of the most interesting games I’ve ever played.
My weekend will mostly be spent out and about, but I’m currently juggling the wonderful little bard adventure Wandersong with Jack ‘N Jill DX, Shadow of Loot Box, and I Am The Hero on the Switch. I’m really trying to wrap up as many smaller indies as possible and try to give them coverage before the holidays. That way if folks get the console for Christmas and want more info on the smaller, cheaper games, I have them somewhat covered.
I’m not here to sell games, of course. I just like talking about the ones I’ve played (if I have time) or the ones given to me by smaller developers.
Otherwise, I do have another batch of games and amiibo that I’m putting up for sale within the next few days. I posted pictures on Twitter, so if any of you fine folks are interested in anything (NA shipping only, but I’d make an exception if possible) leave a comment or shoot me a DM on Twitter and we’ll work something out. ^_^
That about does it for me. What about you, folks? Any gaming plans this weekend? As we get closer to the holiday it’s getting more and more hectic, so hopefully you’re getting some “you” time in.
