As the previous thread has been locked, just reposting that I've had a look at the sale and got Wandersong along with Ori as I just got some money in my PayPal account.

I'd also like to recommend these that are on sale

Bastion
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Donut County
Final Fantasy VII and IX
Gone Home
Inside
Okami
PAN-PAN
Rime
Slay the Spire, I'm yet to play this myself but it is like the 3rd highest-rated game of the year that might be worth a look
The Gardens Between
Three Fourths Home
Timespinner
Transistor
Untitled Goose Game
Valkyria Chronicles
What Remains of Edith Finch

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE FUCKING WASTE! You nerd!

I was gonna call it "What's eShopping about?"
But no, we get "part II". And not even a new post!

Weak.

I'll change the name, and yeah not a new post but maybe some chat that would have come from it will now be in here.

That's the worst thread name yet. Absolutely rank rotten.

Pretty sure "'Whatchu Watching About, Willis?!' DIGRESSION ALERT: Please, for the love of all that is, don't call it that. 2." still has any other thread name on the forum beaten for being utterly shite.

Ha, you must have posted that just as I'd edited it. Laughing

I picked up a few games on the eShop yesterday - Bastion and Transistor were too cheap to pass up, I've nabbed DQI to check out and I went for Sayonara Wild Hearts too. I've only checked out SWH so far... but it's damn good and well worth a look.

This is the first time I've actually looked at Sayonara Wild Hearts - I'll be honest, because it had a Japanese word in the title, and the word Heart, I just assumed it was a visual novel (I know there are several dozen words to the contrary on this forum, but the logic didn't soak in). I am silly. I'm kind of curious having actually watched a video.

It's dead good - we've posted some thoughts on it in the thread that Balla handily created off the back of some chatter around it. Thumbs Up!

I have started both Bastion and Transistor. My first thought is that Supermassive Games really need to familiarise themselves with the concept of 'show don't tell'. It makes more sense in Transistor given that the sword is actually a character, but I don't need to be told that 'kid' has fallen off a ledge again thank you very much, or that he's spending time smashing crates. Let me smash my crates in peace.

I prefer Transistor thus far, although - it's a stealth strategy game! Boo

You can play it more attack-minded and isn't what I would call hard either Transistor.

The VO in it adds so much then the singing, I reckon I may have still included in top PS4 exclusives before it came over to Switch.

I tried Bastion a few years ago and didn't really get into it. The narrator was a fun novelty for about 10 minutes imo

I more than likely put it on October's Game List but just seen Indivisible is out soonish.

It looks kinda interesting, could see a Balla enjoying it but did anyone back it?

ARGH, no more games! Hissy fit Not unless they're reviewed very well. Not for now...

...aw crap it looks absolutely lovely. Aww!

This is a correct take. To be honest I might drop Bastion at least for a good while, to try and get a handle on the recent releases. Who knows, it might be just the thing for a dry June.

I played the Indivisible prototype on ps4 a good few years ago, I don't remember being that impressed tbh which is why I probably forgot about it until mas brought it up but maybe it's changed a bunch since that really early version.

Aw man, I hope you stick with it. There's some beautiful musical moments as the game progresses with an absolutely fantastic and rather emotional set piece towards the end game. Still, if you stick with either of the two, I hope it's Transistor. I've got a lot of time for that game.

It's going to be lost in the rush, I fear. I have heard very good things, but it's one of those games that I feel like 90% of the interested audience will already have played.

Not me! I'm part of the interested audience, but like Mas has mentioned, the lack of an available platform to play it on has stopped me from checking it out. However, I'm not playing or buying new games until Christmas except Luigi's Mansion 3, so it's on the watchlist for now.

I'm dead keen, especially since finding out it's set in Falmouth- my dad's hometown.

I thought it had come out on 'phone or something. Maybe my view is skewed because The Lady games almost exclusively on PC (she likes TRoOD very much).

It might be on phones but none of us are going to play like that.
