  1. I did the same and thoroughly enjoyed that aspect. Heading into any area under levelled just to nab something cool. That for me is one of the greatest things about the game. It feels like you're doing something you're not supposed to and playing the game in your own way. I can see how that would seem like ruining the metroidvania aspect for some. Well I'd say it's quite like castlevania in that you'll enter some areas only to have to back out again and go another route . Metroidvania doesnt necessarily mean some routes are locked off by actual doors, as much as by difficulty.
  2. Not sure if it counts as its quite sparse in narration , but I've been playing The Last Guardian as my christmas game. The voice over at key points makes it feel really kids storybook like. So far I think is an all timer for me. (Perhaps its been patched lots but its easy to control Trico (so far))
  3. Havent played the others but Moonlighter is great and seriously addictive. Finished it this year on PC . The kind of game you fall asleep playing in a good way. Not necessarily that deep but the risk/ reward is strong

    Probably most have seen but Painter 19 ( their previous to current version ) is about £20 on humble bundle. Still 4 days on it. I'm thinking about it but not sure if I'll use it with having photoshop. But seems a steal if youre in the market for something. I havent used the program since X so can't really comment on it. https://www.humblebundle.com/software/painter-create-with-confidence
  5. Thanks!, Thanks Dumpster too, already did the first part. Yeah that should be it, I have been there already.
  6. Cheers, I went back and brought some more of the right items, did all the last section again. Thankfully I kept 2 saves at the same place . Did it first try but my hands got a workout
  7. Its a great battle (and game) but (possible end boss spoilers !)

    It's part of the easy mode/ cheat codes etc discussion I guess. If you want to and have the tools to do so that's great and I hope that's as satisfying or helps with time and family. But it also plays into what you're playing for and whether you're playing to see the end or to enjoy the journey as intended. Clearly these games have a ton of effort put into them to balance them. seems a shame for it to be such an easy thing to do on a whim and so liberally. The big part for me is the individual experience which includes messing up. Its part of what makes quick plays, speed runs, streaming, podcast discussion, forum discussion interesting. especially now with games relying on choices a lot more. Its no skin off my nose if you or Sean use rewind , I just hope it doesnt become the norm cos no doubt I will use it too because its there if you see what I mean.

    No I play animal crossing ;3 . Do you have a set amount of rewinds ? I assume its woven into the game mechanics somehow? ~It could even work in Dark souls or something similar. Just if it was limited or purposefully part of the game sure.

    Its absolutely a different experience. Would you put it in modern games? Do you still have a family and a job while you play modern games? How do you cope?!

    Are you having fun in a crowded room full of people who love starfox,or a forum thread, and all retelling stories of how they died at so and so part because that was part of their experience? That was part of the joy of the game- learning to beat it. I can understand cheating if the game truly cheats you, but you're having an odd experience of what gaming fundamentally is, if you use it too liberally I think. That said if you use it to learn and get through sections and replay without it that could be worthwhile.
  12. Sure thing. Although the cost of mine, judging by the amount of cardboard, is looking steep. I won't hold you to it That's great cheers! I guess I'll put some stuff up here next year then and probably some of the art side in Illustration thread. Protospiel seems a great idea for an event, just checked the website
  13. Thanks, seems wise advice. Best of luck!
  14. I'm in the process of creating a ridiculously epic ( in length ) dungeon crawlery board game. This is the game I mentioned I was working on some time ago in the " what are you doing this year ( or something like that ) named thread a few years ago. I now have a rulebook in prototype form which needs testing once I have board pieces and items and cards ready. So its well under way. I'd probably want to share some of it online with others within a year once I've finished up some of the art side. Just wondering how to go about copyrighting anything. Whether its decent or a total dud, I'd rather not take the risk of sharing things that I feel might be original or copyable. Any advice welcomed!
