What is Oceanhorn? Sounds like a WW rip-off. Is it a WW rip-off?

Yes. It's a 2D zelda-like with the whole island-hopping theme of Wind Waker. It's a good 2D zelda-like too.

Start with these! Also because Kamiko is super short (like, an hour)
The fact that's it's super short helped persuade me to buy it in the first place... Think I'll start it though, help get me prepared for more top down adventuring next week.

Yeah, it was kicking about during the early days of the Switch. I quite liked the look of it - looked decent enough!

There's some glowing praise for a game I'll almost certainly never get around to!

I mean you won't be missing out on anything /new/ by not playing it, and actual Zelda is /better/. It's just /more/ if you want it.

I'd say Blossom Tales and Yono and the Celestial Elephants are both more /interesting/ Zelda-likes on Switch than Oceanhorn, unless you are really in love with the island hopping theme. I prefer Oceanhorn to Ittle Dew 2, but that's probably just my personal taste.

Kamiko is actually Zelda-like in some respects too

I had my eyes on Oceanhorn for a while before I got it on Switch purely because it was like Wind Waker knowing full well it wouldn't come close to the game. I'll still give it a go of course, working my way through KAMIKO currently and it's definitely a good starting point, very easy to get to grips with.

This time yesterday I would have said my backlog of games I really want to play would be

•Astral Chain

Now ibbsters has been bugging me for awhile to gameshare with him. I've done that now and he's got over 100 games there is some overlap between us and things like Bayonetta, I've played before or stuff like Thumper that if I ever do play it be on PSVR.

He's also got stuff that even I have never heard off or I'm scratching my why has he got that, I could still download them as I've not played them and they might be good but my backlog would be like 50+ games.

Anyway these are the ones I've downloaded and now part of my backlog

•Blades of Time
•Capcom Beat 'em Up Bundle
•Cadance of Hyrule
•Castlevania Anniversary Collection
•Final Fantasy VIII Remastered
•Fear Effect Sedna
•Hollow
•Hover
•Lumines Remastered
•Morphite
•SEGA AGES Outrun
•Senran Kagura Peach Ball
•Secert Files Tunguska
•Submerged
•The Last Remant Remastered
•The Next Penelope
•VOEZ
•Wonder Boy The Dragons Trap
•Yooka-Laylee
•Rise: Race the Future
•The VideoKid
•The Mummy Demastered

I would gather Cadence of Hyrule should be the first game I play out of all those but any other I should be looking at right away?

Probably work through that Capcom Beat 'em Up Bundle together, with online co-op. SEGA AGES OutRun is the best game on that list though, surely.

Unfortunately can't play the same game at the same time that means Capcom Beat 'Em Up in CO-OP is out.

Yeah Outrun is one of the best games he's got (Bayonetta maybe) but not one I really need to play as I've played numerous times.

I want to get this, interested in hearing your thoughts

•Morphite

This is a low-poly No Man's Sky with a proper hand-made story and I really liked it

masofdas wrote:
•SEGA AGES Outrun

Obviously good

masofdas wrote:
•Submerged

Really enjoyed this (took many screenshots) and think it might be your kind of game mas

masofdas wrote:
•The Next Penelope

Pick up and play and a fun little multiplayer distraction, but nothing grand

masofdas wrote:
•The Mummy Demastered

Not as good as Alien: Infestation, but a good game nontheless. I think they patched out the major complaints too since I played it at launch.
