Wow, and American Ninja Warrior game. I kind of cooled down on the series though, after the way Geoff Britten got shafted out of the title.

Emerald Shores actually looks interesting and I do like the graphics, and I'm always up for supporting fellow indie devs and CAGs, but I'm a little skiddish after reading the "pros and cons" list at the playstationtrophies.org game forum. Have any of those issues been addressed in a patch?

Just looked it up, and wow that's the most negative review I've seen.  FWIW, it looks like all of that guy's posts on the forum are just negative reviews of random games with the username "ThisGameSucks".  Some of his criticisms are valid, but some don't really make any sense or seem accurate.  Like "blind jumps"... aside from one kinda sketchy spot at the end of the first cave level, I think all of the falls have coins to lead you where you're supposed to go.

 

TBH, reviews are kind of all over the place on this one.  Some love it, some hate it, but if you search for Emerald Shores reviews, the average tends to fall somewhere right in the middle.  Which I think is spot on: if I were looking at it objectively and didn't have any involvement in it, I'd give it about a 6/10 myself, which is where most of the reviews ended up.  Nothing amazing, hence the cheap price, but a good and unique experience if you're into challenging platformers that have a lot of variety.  It's a tough one, but the level-up system is there so that the difficulty slides depending on how much grinding you do, allowing you to hang back and feed on the spongey enemies if you find it to be too difficult.

 

The controls/physics are basically the sticking point that determines whether someone enjoys it, and I've found that's been a very subjective thing that varies depending on who's playing it.  I've seen reviews that say the controls are "loose" and I've seen reviews that say the controls are "tight", lol.. complete opposite reactions.  Basically comes down to: if the controls feel wrong to you, you probably won't like the game much, but if they feel right, you probably will.  I tried to model the feel after Super Mario World's physics, which I personally think was the best feel of the series, but I know a lot of people disagree there.  The hitboxes are a common source of criticism too, and there are definitely some issues there, but it's mostly fine after you get past about level 2-1.  Even there, I've seen people play through it without ever running into any issues.  I released a patch that resolved a lot of issues that were present at launch, but there are still some to fix.

 

All that said... one major strength of the game is that I worked to put a ton of variety into it so that the game never gets stale/repetitive, and that's something most reviewers picked up on as a major positive.  A bunch of minigames, a handful of sidequests that give rewards useful in the rest of the game, various level-specific mechanics (ride on a sleigh in the winter levels, make sure you stay hydrated in the desert levels), a multiplayer co-op "Tails mode" type of easter egg (just press X on a second controller), and so on.  Even the soundtrack has a lot of variety with 20-something different music tracks.  And then there's the Remix Mode that gives you an opportunity to play through the game with some subtle level rearrangements that make it a bit more challenging.

I was wondering myself why there was no preview video or even a single screenshot on PSN.

I love CornShaq reviews, but damn, he was harsh on this game, he rarely gives below a 5.

I'm going to do the same, especially since they went through the effort to make a proper trophy list and a vita port.

 

Congrats on the game Josh1billion!

How soon do you guys think we will see a sale on DMC 5? Reason I ask is that I have some PSN cards right now along with some GS credit and after skipping games so far this year I want to get a whole bunch at once right now with a 20% coupon and I'm debating if I want to pick up DMC 5 at $48 (w no tax here in CA on PSN) or wait for a sale since I've already waited and not bought it day one. I know stuff like EDF 5 and MK11 I need/want digital, but I wonder if I should wait for disk copies of DMC 5 and Sekiro on sale in case I want to trade them in after I finish them. Decisions, decisions...

Strategy guide is available online here for anyone who wants to breeze through the platinums, maybe 2 hours each with a guide: http://fordesoft.com...ld-shores/cover

Congrats on your game. I wish I would have know about this when it was first released. I would have bought it day 1 to support you bc this website has saved me tons of money. Plus I love the style n the game seems interesting plus it has a platinum trophy which is nice. I believe the critic was too hard on the score. I was not expecting the 4/10 from the things that he said. I didn't get the impression the game was that bad so I'll be the judge for myself. Let us know when ur next game comes out. God bless you!

could be a while since it's only 2 weeks old, i assume it sold well because it's gotten tons of praise from critics and gamers

 

Resident Evil 2 is a Capcom game too, it's 2 months old and there still hasn't been a digital sale

If you don't have Detroit: Become Human yet, you should also keep an eye out for a deal on the Detroit digital deluxe edition as that comes bundled with some Detroit extras and Heavy Rain. https://store.playst...ETROITDDE000001 It's also the same base price as Heavy Rain by itself, $30.

I do :/ Bought it for $20 on BF and still haven't played it. If it was $30 physically on BF than I absolutely would've bought that. Good deal.

Ahh yeah, I remember one of them. I just passed because it wasn't $10 or less after all this time. No matter. I had enough gold coins on my Nintendo account to buy it straight out.

You should get a video up if possible so we can all see it in action.

 

Agreed! The lack of screenshots or video doesn't make for a good storefront.

Well, good to see Konami finally pulling their heads out of their butts with these collections. I'll get Castlevania and Contra for sure. The gradius games intrigue me, but I only played the NES versions, not the arcade ones. Anyone have insight into those?
