I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts RollingSkull.
When I posted the announcement trailer earlier in the month I was pretty excited about it. (still am, but will probably hold off on purchasing a bit since I have so many other games to play right now).

On a tangent, I recently finished Analogue: A Hate Story, which I got from the Getaway bundle.

Speaking of Meat Boy...the Basement Bundle should be released tomorrow with all the old Team Meat games. $4 I believe, plus they mentioned a discount of some sort for loyal fans.


Could not possibly care less about that. Every bit of love I had for Meat Boy was squandered by the PC port follies, price drops, and Binding of Isaac. Pretty sure I do NOT need to pay for old free Newgrounds Flash games. Hell, Crate Box came free

Hopefully these are kinks that'll get ironed out, but yes it's bloody annoying. I've spent the last 30 minutes or so just poking around for something different and it's amazing how much dross has been submitted (with or without permission).

Didgery caught my eye though, looked interesting. Also upvoted Towns, Project Zomboid, and Towing Simulator.

Just one more thing (which isn't in any way related to my previous post), I think Gotham City Imposters is going Free-To-Play. I'm a bit annoyed having actually paid for it but I've had my fun I guess. It's a nice take on the "team deathmatch shoot stuff" genre, hopefully going free will make the match-making a little more frequent.

Either way, I'm still looking forward to see what the Hate Plus DLC will bring, though probably with not as much anticipation as I originally had for Analogue itself.

Well I am on the verge of quitting sleeping dogs. This combat is starting to piss me the Fuck off. Oh I pressed the counter but it's not registering because of some bullshit so now I take damage that cost me half my health.

Yeah, I died like 4-5 times on a group of thugs and realized, just no. It's not worth the frustration.

I hadn't heard anything about a Hate Plus DLC for Analogue but holy cow googling this game ALWAYS, ALWAYS makes me sad. Maybe I am not reading the author properly but I really don't think Analogue is supposed to be a screed about how awful white men are and how on a day by day basis they are just a sneeze away from chaining women up but holy cow every single dope on the internet sure seems ready to call it that.

Ah hell I'm probably wrong. She probably is making a point that her magic sci-fi "Somehow all technology was forgotten" twist means we're just a few heartbeats away from women being locked in the kitchen and used only to birth babies. Cue ominous "It's already happening cuz it's so disturbing that politicians want to control womens' bodies" blather because it's absolutely fucking impossible to have an honest disagreement about abortion so of COURSE you assume it is the latent incremental patriarchy hurr durr and not, well, that some people have a NOT ALTOGETHER BASELESS AND CERTAINLY NOT EASILY COUNTERED WHICH IS WHY YOU IGNORE IT belief that it is murder.

Sorry, I'm on a tangent now. I do like Analogue a lot though it feels kinda bad that, to enjoy it, I am deliberately taking parts of it that the author probably didn't intend it to go... maybe. I dion't know.

I had no such trouble with that. The countering wasn't Batman smooth but it didn't give me such hiccups.

That said some of those combat challenges were really hard until I came back with more moves

It's weird. I had friends tell me they are getting ultra smooth combat yet I am getting some lag it seems whenever I try to counter someone a lot of the time. I am using a PS3 controller with motionjoy but I never had a problem with it before.

I am not getting any graphical lag either, this is all input lag for some odd reason.

Same here, annoying.

Also, Cardinal Quest II is on Greenlight. The first one was very basic, but a really nice simple roguelike. I had fun with it.

Into level one of SHAMELESS MEAT BOY RIPOFF* They Bleed Pixels and I am having a blast so far.

Don't spring for the soundtrack though

Spoiler


EDIT: Level 2 now, I think it's Dustforce more than Meat Boy, only it has combat and I like both the really tight platforming and the simplistic, brittle, but decent combat.

I actually found myself dying quite a bit at first, especially in groups with a mix of grapplers (the big dudes that you can sometimes only counter with quick time events) and knife wielders.

I found the combat much easier when I changed my strategy a bit and found a couple jade statues:
1) The best upgrade I found, by far, was the follow up attack on a stunned enemy. This seems to be an instant kill on fodder and takes less time than the long x,x,x,x,(x) combo. Basically you need to upgrade first to allow x,x,(x) to stun the enemy, then follow up with another x to kick them in their face. Also, I always went for the fat grapplers first because I didn't like how they could interrupt my attacks with a grapple (which I can't counter).

You can counter at almost any time in your animation, except for some (hold x) follow ups, like x,x,x,x,(x) jumping kick. If you think people are going to attack, just do basic quick combos then counter.

The game also gets much easier when your face level increases, since you regain health and get more powerful when it activates. Also, when it's leveled up enough, you automatically disarm weapon wielders upon counters, which is awesome :) You can max out your face level quickly and easily by completing races. I recommend the GX300 for class B motorcycle, CS750R for class A motorcycle, Terre GT for class B car, and really any class A car (though I like the Tuono). All of these vehicles except the Tuono are pretty affordable.

Hope that helps!
