Debating between The Surge: Complete Edition, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair and its DLC, DeBlob 2 (to play with the kids) and X-Morph Defense. I can probably only get two of those four options. Any thoughts on which route to go? Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
It depends on if you want solo gameplay or co-op.
The Surge is a bit like Dark Souls but not as polished. The main issue I had was the areas felt very similar and the character control felt off. You can select specific body parts to dismember which was nifty.
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is not a typical Castlevania game. More of an arcade-style kill the enemies and get to the boss in the time limit and kill him. I can't recall if your character can level up or get better gear. It can be fun with the right co-op partner. I never played the DLC for it so I'm not sure what all it adds aside from a few characters and levels. It's not backward compatible and your guess is as good as anyone else's if it will ever go that way.
I played the first DeBlob and I had some fun with it not sure if anything has changed for the second one I assume it's more of the same just different levels. What I played was fun in short burst it got very repetitive at times and had me wishing the levels were shorter. In the first game if you did not 100% the level before completing it when you went back into it you had to start over from scratch which made me say screw it and stop playing.
X-Morph I've never played sorry so I can't give an opinion.
