Decide to get Slain and Lara Croft GO. Been wanting to play Slain for a long time.

It sure is. Good games never go out of style

 

 

I've started playing a lot of Metroidvania games but Shadow Complex is the only one I've ever stuck with from start to finish so that should tell you something.  But I was unemployed when it came out so I had all the time in the world to play it and no money to buy other games so that might have had something to do with it.  Still I say awesome game and my favorite of the genre.

 

Thanks, both. I bought it!

How does Nex Machina compare to Helldivers? I loved that game, and must have sunk at least 200 hours into it.

To chime in on the entire discussion: (I love twin stick shooters)

 

Nex Machina (2p) is good, but it's just a very fast-paced and twitchy arcade game. So fast, you don't realize you're done an area fast.  It's also really short, meant to be played over and over for a better score.

 

Jydge (2p) is for Neon Chrome (4p) fans: smaller task-based quick missions at a slower pace; quite fun and satisfying to replay for different missions (I enjoyed first clearing everyone out, then replaying to kill objective ASAP & GTFO alive under a certain time amount)

 

The real comparison to Helldivers (4p) would be Alienation (4p).  Long map-based objectives/missions with RPG elements.

 

I'm on the fence about Tesla (4p) (the only one in this post that I don't own), since it's closer to Crimsonland (4p) or I Made A Game With Zombies In It (4p), arena-based, rather than exploring/moving like Dead Nation (2p) et al.

 

Special nod to Ruiner (1p), which I am very excited to try but haven't yet, but that one is single-player story based. (also see: Livelock (1p))

 

I think that covers most of the quality multiplayer twin stick shooters that aren't true rogue-like on the side of Isaac or Gungeon.

 

In summary, every game I've mentioned is great, none of them have disappointed, and they're all worth picking up when on sale.

Tomb Raider: Anniversary (PSP) is missing from the list. I think it's at an all-time low of $1.94 (per pspprices.com). It will work on the Vita if transferred via a PS3 system.

Don't forget that the sale is ending today at 8 a.m. PST!

Just grabbed a PSTV compatible trifecta - Persona 4 Golden, Child of Light Ultimate Edition, and Lara Croft Go.

Now to find my PSTV. I might have eaten it.

Holy hell. I thought today was Sunday. Some traveling messed up my timing. Can't believe I missed a flash sale. Though honestly I didn't need to spend money

None of us ever need to spend money. But we spend money to save money.
