Switch eShop Thread

Recommended Posts

I had a few games on the PS4 demo over the weekend and it was very meh. It lacks the charm and excitement of the NBA Jam games.

 

I was reading on Gaf that you can't play online with friends. Seems like a very weird option to leave out of such a game.

:D

 

Haha! :D

 

Apparently it's on all versions, the lack of online, and is coming in an update within a week or so. Interested to see how it works on the Switch, presume just match making from within the game?

@Grazza you see that one of those Dark Witch games is being released tomorrow? Apparently it's a spin off rhythm game from one of the mini games from the second game. Looks to be a budget release. I may give it a whirl.

What's the game like? I'm really really tempted by this.

Really enjoying it in two player mode, great co op game.

 

Single player isn't quite as fun as relying on the AI but it's ok, but yeah it's really entertaining as a couch co op game and controls well with joy con side on too!

 

Plus it's something a bit different for Switch at the mo, really fun sports game!

Thanks dude. If there's one thing I haven't got though, it's rhythm. :heh:

 

I know it's random, but while I'm talking to you, did you ever beat Rugal in King of Fighters '94? It's driving me crackers.

Nah. I was never a Neo Geo/SNK guy. Capcom/Street Fighter all the way. :D

I finally beat Rugal in King of Fighters '94, but didn't even get the end credits or Game Over screen. What a let down!

Not sure if it was because it was on Level 1, or I changed teams (beat him with Mexico). Oh well, not sure I can take going through it on Level 4 yet. Onto the next one!

@dazzybee did you pick up NBA in the end?

 

Yeah I certainly did. I have to say that I really love it, much better than I expected. Looking forward to them adding online.

 

I went away so picked up kamiko (great game too), blazing star (meh) and this. Pleased as well as the only reason I got it (was going to wait for the online update) was because I wanted to have 13 games so I could see the ALL SOFTWARE bit 🤣

What was the general consensus of Shantae? One of the better in the series or no?

Thinking of downloading this tonight and having something to play over the weekend.

Not the best game in the series but it's good. Involves a bit of backtracking, you need to revisit stages to collect everything so depends how you feel about that. Looked good on the Wii U, it's pretty humourous, good music. It's a fun game. I'm thinking of buying the Switch version as well.

 

Checkout the Shante thread, a few of us posted impressions.

Cheers Ike.

 

I did actually download it on Wii U and I think I played it for like 30 mins or it could have been another one? Can't remember.

 

Yeah backtracking isn't too much of an issue I guess. I think when I read reviews when it came out original they all mentioned the game being too easy? Again could be wrong. Bad memory haha. Think I'll give it a go though. In the mood for this type of game.

Yeah, it's not really a difficult game. I think they added a hard mode or are going to, not sure if it's in the Switch version.

 

I didn't find the backtracking bad at all, personally. But it seems some people did.

It's not a bad game, but it was a bit disappointing given the pedigree of the series. I'd rank it 3rd after Risky's Revenge and Pirate's Curse.

 

The backtracking is not too arduous; it just jars with how linear much of the game is, ie. stages consisting of 1-1, 1-2 and 1-3, with no ability to go backwards to the previous one without completely re-entering the area. It's not simple enough to play as a linear game, and not as satisfying as a true Metroidvania.

 

Overall... just about worth the money if you don't already own it.

As a fan of the series, I was disappointed in it, for reasons that I've already posted in the HGH thread, but it's still a good game and worth your time and money.

I downloaded Shantae.

Only put in about an hour and a half so far but enjoying it a lot.

 

Already had some backtracking but if it's like I think it will be, where you use the obtained power ups to access other areas then I'm completely happy with that.

 

I love how full of charm it is. From the characters down to the item that you can buy. Shampoo to improve her hair whip etc :D.

It also looks glorious. Reminds me a bit of the new sonic the Hedgehog's they did (episode 1 etc).

 

Here's to more Shantae! Or at least, the release of the others!
