Alientrap's underrated mech-suit roguelite Cryptark is getting an FPS sequel: GunheadAlientrap's underrated mech-suit roguelite Cryptark is getting an FPS sequel: Gunhead
Dominic Tarason Avatar

If it's anything like the original (And judging from the map screen in the trailer, that's the direction they're going), it'll be a lot more technical than that. Each ship will gradually wear you down through attrition unless you carefully pick off security subsystems to open up a safer route to the core. You'll want to shut down the self-repair system first, otherwise it'll fix the drone factory when you blow that up, which is defended by the alarm system somewhere else, which is behind a door managed by the security terminal in another direction, etc etc.

That's why I said "based on the trailer". Trailer looked nothing like the first game.

Based on the trailer it looks like just another arena shooter with cell-shaded graphics.Reply

I could argue that C&C isn't one of the best strategy games, not anymore: Slow gameplay, bad AI, spam to win and so on.

I also don't get it why people feel entitled to add their own favorites to other peoples lists?

Vampyr needs to sell a million to be "considered a success," and no DLC is plannedVampyr needs to sell a million to be "considered a success," and no DLC is planned

To be honest most of their games are mediocre at best: Forgettable fantasy games Styx and Silverfall, Farming simulator and Blood bowls etc. Some companies just don't seem to have any idea what people want to play. Or what's fun for that matter.

Nothing in that Vampyr game makes me go "wow, I gotta play that thing". More like "this looks like a eastern europe sherlock gone vampire in a point and click adventure". I mean mixed signals.

Nothing about Hob really made me want to buy it straight away. It looks nice, reviews are positive and even the price isn't over the top but something just doesn't click about it. I guess the biggest problems are that there's no twist to the genre and the artstyle isn't very original. Hob was the game that could wait until the next sale.Reply

You're not wrong. It doesn't seem like a bad game, it just screams ... mediocrity. Like it didn't even attempt to outshine anything, but just reach the bar for what a decent game is.

STALKER-like F2P shooter Survarium adds its first cooperative PvE story mission in v0.50STALKER-like F2P shooter Survarium adds its first cooperative PvE story mission in v0.50

I thought this was totally trashed in the customer reviews?Reply
Dominic Tarason Avatar

Mostly due to the fact that it was a team-based arena shooter based on STALKER until recently. They're one large step closer to it being the game people wanted so much now.


Here's hoping it's not too much longer until the free-roam mode is out.

Am I the only one who thinks this looks pretty horrible after Stardew Valley?Reply
Papa Denden Avatar

Nope. This looks like a game boy title from 5 years ago. Poor animation and ugly visuals. Add to that the fact that Harvest Moon has not changed or really improved since the PS/N64 era, and you've got a real flop on your hands.

If I was a Stardew Dev, I'd try and push an update out around this release date and watch Harvest Moon die.

DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin review snippet Would you read more of DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin's lore outside the game?
If there were a very stylished and atmospheric comic.
