  1. So, i finished the King of Cards expansion for Shovel Knight. Now i actually understand why they took their time, not just for the card game, but for practically remaking the entire game. This is much more than what Plague of Shadows or Specter of Torment did. Still, equally enjoyable to play, and even the new music tracks are cool.

    And now the spoilery part:

    Spoiler

    Like, damn, it seems only Plague Knight was able to get a happy ending. Though in this case, King Knight called it upon himself from the start, we know immediately he's a self-centered manchild who only cares about a title and treats everyone else like dirt, so we knew  he would have taken his chances immediately. While his ending is tragic, i wasn't feeling sorry for him like i did for Specter Knight.

    Not gonna lie, narrativewise it's a bit weak (and a shame too considering the supporting cast and the main quest are very solid), i would have rather seen a campaign dedicated to Black Knight or Shield Knight since these two are the ones who begged to have more backstory. Alas.

    Now here's hoping Yacht Club can finally move onto something else, they've been stuck with this game for half a decade.

      Yeah, KoC is pretty great. I thoroughly enjoyed my playthrough, 100%ing the map and Joutus matches on my initial run. The amount of effort that went into it is simply astounding. King Knight is a joy to play as, and I really appreciate his smaller levels. That decision to make more levels and have them be shorter was the right one. 

      Regarding the story and narrative:

      I personally really enjoyed it. It was great to see how it played into the backstory, and I disagree with you about it being weak. The cards were in the table from the very beginning, and his ending wasn't traffic. King Knight didn't make friends with anyone else aboard the ship or on his travels; he just saw them as a means to get his title, and that was made clear. The character is just a colossal dick, simple. The best part seeing how he did essentially have loyal subjects, but he just didn't care about them. It's brilliant.

      Say what you will about the underused Black Knight and Shield Knight, from the limited appearances that everyone had in the original game I think that they picked the perfect three to make additional stories for. Plague of Shadows was an unexpected parallel story, Spectre of Torment was the tragic prequel and King of Cards was fully embracing the lunacy of Shovel Knight. Having a lighter story with an emphasis on raw humour was a good way to end this wild ride.

      I've not played Showdown yet, as it's not that interesting to me. I hope we get more from the series in the future (not Dig), and that it can evolve from its faux 8-bit aesthetic into just about anything else.

      King of cards is a blast. I still need to finish it. How do you get good at joustus? Because I suck at it.

  2. Sorry for the SU not too distant from the previous one, but it seems the SSMB is having lots of slowdowns and 502 errors. Everything's fine?

  3. Aside from Fortnite swooping in the multiplayer award (ideally Apex Legends was more logical as a winner) and Untitled Goose Game not winning the indie cathegory, this was still very solid. Maybe it didn't kept the momentum from last year, but the stuff that was announced was plenty and interesting.
    Believe it or not, two of my most interested new games announced are Ruined King and CON/VERGE: i've been saying like many others for years Riot has immense lore potential in their champions for LoL to use, and finally they're taking advantage of that, can't wait to see them.

    Also, where the hell is Bayonetta 3.

      I am so very happy Fire Emblem took home two awards. The highlight of the whole stream for me. And the only Nintendo game to take home multiple awards as well!

  4. Untitled Goose Game didn't win the indie cathegory, 0/10.

      But hey! At least you got Wolf Among Us 2!

    I'm still believing the next game VV is making is a remake of the GBA Crash duology (XS/N-Tranced), wich will make Megamix inclusion in NF logical for marketing purposes.

     

  6. This is it, Luigi! Remember: where there's smoke, there's ____

  7. A mook-themed GP would be nice, with the skunk, the lab assistant (with many potential alternate costumes) and Papu tribeman.
  8. Since noone has mentioned it yet: https://gematsu.com/2019/12/bayonetta-vanquish-10th-anniversary-bundle-announced-for-ps4-xbox-one

     

    I'll get the PS4 version.

      Bayonetta on non-Nintendo platforms just seems so pointless now. It's always good for people to be able it in other platforms I guess, but with the way that Nintendo basically adopted Bayonetta 2 and funded it, along with the upcoming Bayonetta 3, ports of the originals to other platforms will always fell like they're not going anywhere.

      But Vanquish is a cool and criminally ignored game so bundling it with Bayonetta will hopefully get it some much deserved attention.

      Welp, I guess I'm getting this and the physical Yakuza 3-5 collection that month

  9. I've heard always mixed to bad opinions on Doom 3, and while it's certainly a shift in genre and has... outdated designs and textures, it's still kinda fun so far, it feels a prototype for Dead Space, ironically enough.

      Just wait until the game design devolves so far that you can pick up an item, spin around and shoot something and hit it without even looking at the screen.

  10. Calling it, Yozora is the top tier superboss meant to tease for the next game. Also, where exactly is Riku talking with Aerith, Yuffie and Leon?
  11. Well, since everyone talks about jumping, might as well construct a question tied to it.
    Double jumps: yes or no? You prefer if they're justified in-universe (Devil May Cry for example has the character create an energy platform in mid-air to jump on) or you don't mind the screwing of physics?

      Like anything it kinda depends on the game.  I slightly prefer them when they don't really FEEL like a double jump, as is the case for many of Mario's mid-air movement mechanics from throughout the series (spin jump, Cappy dive, etc).  I certainly am not a fan of them in Sonic, since even when going at full speed, there's an element of the pop up into the air in a different direction that feels at odds with the smoothness of going fast in a Sonic game.

      The level design HAS to be really concerned about it though.  Mario 64 would be way too easy if a double jump was added for example.  I've also been playing Hollow Knight lately and there's something nice about the way that, since double jumping is an unlockable mechanic, it gives the open world plenty of scope for providing a basic range of platforming challenges, where backtracking over early areas where you originally only had one jump to get through becomes streamlined thanks to the additional air movement abilities you've unlocked, while newer areas are built to challenge the player with the double jumping in mind.

  12. I'm sorry, what did i just watched?

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      It looks like the mutant lovechild of Crazy Taxi, Grand Theft Auto, and Fortnite.

    Fuck, i forgot how stretched the dungeons in Darksiders II are.

  14. I have yet to catch up with the anime, but i've been reading the manga for a while now, pretty much since last year, and loved it immensly. Between this, Promised Neverland and Demon Slayer added to MHA, Shonen Jump is having a lot of new fresh blood to accompany the veterans.
