Mine came along with the Kickstarter Sleeve.

I've also sold mine on eBay already as
1. In the states from what I had seen it been going for a silly price and it's just a sleeve (I could have sold sleeve on its own) being the difference
2. It's the Switch version, yes 3 years ago or whatever after I couldn't have Wii U or VITA that was the version I wanted but now I sooner have on Xbox One (It also doesn't look great on Switch)
3. Honestly, I'm not that bothered playing this now and knowing how Xbox One games drop in price the fasted, I'll get this when it's £10-15

That arrived later for me, and... it's nice I suppose? I don't really care?

Normally I'd be all Rolling Eyes at Mas and his technical gubbins, but... I can see in this case. The blurring's obvious in the graphics, and if it's improved in the other versions then fair enough. It's still not a big deal though.

The first boss was hard. Could never dodge that opening tentacle swipe.

You would have had the emails from the team basically saying they've F'ed up the Switch verison and all resources are being put into fixing it.

I have, which is nice of them.

Just run into the hub village thing, which is... weird.

If I do pick this up, it likely will be on PS4 as I've heard the Switch version doesn't run as well as the others - I don't mind visual downgrades, but performance issues are another story.

Still, good to hear you're enjoying! IGA makes great Metroidvania games - I've enjoyed all the Igavanias I've played. Is the voice acting/dialogue suitably cheesy, I presume?

Oh it's wonderful. You meet the main villain at the end of the first segment and he is campy as all hell. Nobody else has really matched up thus far, but there was a definite feeling of 'what is a man?' to that exchange. I'm looking forward to more. Thumbs Up!

I can still recite the opening to SotN, so I'm not expecting something to match that but if it can emulate the mature cheese from that game's opening, we're onto a winner. Laughing

Now now if I can't have Metroid-like then you can't have Igavania. Wink

Also speaking of SotN I got that Castlevania requiem bundle on ps4 last month and I really should get around to playing them.

SOTN is so good, that it should be Castlevania-like.

The man himself coined the phrase - it's just for the Metroidvanias that IGA has made, tis all. Everything else is quite clearly a Metroidvania as officially recognised by Nintendo. Wink

It's in the thread title and everything!

I've just finished the second boss, and it's nice to see myself improving. Jim Sterling said that there's a big 'stuff you' to Konami somewhere in there, and I keep trying to guess what it might be. I've met an awful lot of characters already for an indie title, though. Think there's some meat on them gaming bones...
