Re: Quick Reference Guide to Retro Metroidvania/Platform Adventure Games

I wouldn't put them in the same category. Deus Ex - Human Revolution and Mankind Divided though have low levels of it. Genre wise their both immersive sims however.

Review of the game - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydMLculJDIc

Mixed bag apparently, and the game designer sounds like he's a bit of a loser.

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

I should note that a game called "Gurren Lagann" on the DS got the rom translation treatment this week. Is an adventure action game by the look of it and based on a anime. Interesting game. https://www.siliconera.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/gurren.jpg Bad point is that in physical form you'd only...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Bloodstained in both it's 8-bit and 2.5D incarnations is excellent and most definitely worthy of playing if you like/love Metroidvania's or just 2D platformers in general.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Currently playing Death Stranding after picking it up for 60% off during the black Friday special on Steam. Got what I was expecting being a Kojima game. Odd setting, cinematic cutscenes (with even more odd stuff), damn fine graphics, fascinating and great gameplay, and heaps of stuff that makes no ...

Re: Suggestions for best platform games

Quite a few games above I would not classify as a platforming game in the slightest. Alundra and System Shock 2 for example. Not to say their not awesome games. SS2 in particular is a MUST play at least once in your lifetime style game.

Re: Link the Faces of Evil & Wand of Gamelon PC Remasters

Awesome. Hope my gameplay showcases what the games about. I didn't mind the gameplay after a while. You get used to it's style after some time.

Well he did the smart thing. He did all the work in secret then released it, waited a few hours then removed all the download links, by which time torrents and alternate downloads were available elsewhere.

Now I'm assuming your looking for pure 2D platforming games (this being retro gamer forum afterall) otherwise would have said some good 3D ones, and nothing Metroidvania-...
