I'm hyped though it will probably be weird to play it without a stylus since I'm still working through 3D 2. Though i guess the Switch is touch still but still seems like it would be weird to play that way.

The original games had physical controls and they worked perfectly well.   I've played a few other nonogram type games with physical controls and they were fine too.  No doubt though the stylus really adds to the experience.

 

 

Anyone else looking forward to Steamworld Dig 2 today? I really enjoyed the first one and heist.

Didn't realize that was today.  I loved the first game.  I had no interest in Heist, but Dig 2 will be mine at some point.  I'm hoping it gets a physical release.

Wow, what a surprise! Definitely not waiting out a price drop on this, gotta play it now.

I didn't like it as much as World of Goo or Little Inferno, but it's fun if you're looking for something weird to play for a few hours.

It's a fun programming logic puzzle game couched in an office setting. Definitely not for those that don't want a serious challenge since it doesn't really hold back.

Forgot to mention this in the post, but here's a warning for Human Resource Machine, Little Inferno, and World of Goo:

 

None of these games support the Pro Controller. It's touch or motion controls only from what I've seen since those were what these games were originally built around.

Been playing some SteamWorld Dig 2 and enjoying it a lot. If you're wondering what's new or different, here's what I've noticed so far:

 

  • Water-based moves/attacks no longer drain pools when refilling your meter. You can also swim a bit by jumping near the top of a pool of water to get across it quicker than the first game.
  • Enemies stuck in the earth that break out as you get near also break the blocks to their immediate left and right, so you can better prepare to attack them or drop rocks onto them.
  • The XP system this time around is not tied to the ores you mine, but from enemies defeated. The enemies also seem to respawn every so often, so it's easy to grind a bit if you want to do that. So far, leveling up just increases the bonus percent you get from selling back ores.
  • Beyond the pure item/stat upgrades, there is also a perk system that you open up with each upgrade that offers various types of bonuses. The few I've seen included being able to get partial money for ores you destroy when making room for others or becoming immune from the explosion a certain item causes. The catch is that they require these upgrade cogs to enable them and you may not have enough for every perk you unlock until late in the game when you've found them all in the mines. They're not permanent perks either, so you can easily swap things in and out at the workbench to see what works best for you at that moment.
  • Instead of being an item you purchase, there are lanterns all around the mines that you can light as a permanent light fixture in that part of the mine for a minor bit of help to see when you're low on light.
  • I wouldn't call it an open world, but there's a bit more exploration outside of the mines to be had. You're travelling to the main town early on and I've seen some more areas to explore outside of that town, so it's not all centered around the town and the mine below like the first game. I'll take a guess that this won't be the only town/mine in the game.

It's been great so far.

Might pick up Harvest Moon A Tale of Two Towns and A New Beginning. Not sure if any of the GBC ones are also worth getting. I think I'll avoid the newer Harvest Moons that aren't by the original devs.

So is everyone here boycotting NBA 2k18? I noticed none of the normal Youtube channels had a review and didn't know if the microtransaction debacle had killed the hype for another next gen game getting what looked like a fully featured and comparable port.

Is SWD2 coming out for the 3DS? I'm not seeing it on my store it if already is.

Also thoughts on the river City games? Been eyeballing them for a while now. I still can't tell if the medieval one plays like a brawler or ATB based RPG ...

Anyone else remap the controls for Steamworld? There's something slightly "off" about the default controls to me that I can't quite figure out. Maybe it's because I've been playing so much Metroid.

I did not boycott, I was really hoping for a physical copy but canceled my pre-order and went digital after the delay. It runs really really well even in portable mode. I am the type of person to just ignore microtransaction options so idgaf about the fact that I only have like 5 haircut options available in mycareer mode.

I was interested in both River City games, but my research turned up that there is no multiplayer in the main games so that just killed my interest in either. Not sure if that matters to you.

The 3DS themes they'e giving away with Pokemon Silver/Gold are pretty nice, even if the process for redeeming them is needlessly complicated (the Nintendo way!)

The developer says they're working on it, but it doesn't sound like it will be coming anytime soon.

It's no longer procedurally generated - the world is pretty carefully created and is quite a bit more Metroidvania-like with more story/exploration. But I loved the first one so I can't really say one way or the other whether this is different in the grind-y regard.

 

You do start above ground and dig down and upgrade your gear. But there's a ton of different gear to upgrade now, and none are really mandatory. It's more upgrading to suit your play style.

Ah, I will probably pick it up then. If there's some sense of progression and not just digging a little deeper every run then I would probably enjoy it.

I stopped playing the original pretty early on as well, for the reasons you mentioned. I still plan to go back to it at some point, but it didn't grab and pull me in like I thought it would.

I don't know that SWD2 is that much different than the first. You're still digging down towards whatever the quest is at that moment (room with an unlock or depth goal) and when you're full with ores, you go back up to sell them and buy upgrades to let you get further down. If you didn't enjoy that core loop from the first game, I'm not sure this one will change that much for you.
