Rocket League dropping Nov 14th! $19.99 or region equivlent. That's what £15?

Novemeber be stacked, baby.

Double dipping on this.

If anything, November is going to be a bit of a breather for me!

I expect to be knee deep in Super Mario Odyssey for the next few weeks and hopefully finishing off Resident Evil VII at some point while I scatter in the odd game of FIFA 18. I need to get back into both Splatoon 2 and ARMS while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is trying to lure me back in.

At the moment, Resident Evil VII almost feels like an inconvenience on my Switch indulgence (perhaps even impacting my enjoyment of it :hmm: ) but.. it's the season for it :heh:

I have literally cleared my backlog by finishing Golf Story three days ago.  Dipping into Splatoon 2 and MK8 Deluxe again while waiting for Odyssey to be delivered.  Next week hopefully.  Then onto the shitstorm of Doom, LA Noire (may cancel), Rocket League, Enter The Gungeon, Xenoblade Chronicles, Zelda DLC (haven't purchased yet, but will if the story content is good), Resident Evil Revelations Collection, Skyrim, Tiny Metal, and that's not including if we get a good Christmas sale (haha, that'll keep me busy until 2019).

I still really need to catch up with Axiom Verge and Stardew Valley.  I suppose I could fit in the former after Mario Odyssey, but the latter is one I don't want to get into until I've finished with everything else.

 

Then I need to cast my eye over any Neo Geo releases I've missed - certainly interested in Roddy & Cathy.

I made a few purchases the other evening. I picked up Severed ( LOVE the Vita version ), Snake Pass ( figured I would give it a punt while it was on sale ), Mummy Demastered (I  see this has now got a patch for its performance issues ) and Knight Terrors. 

Knight Terrors is only a couple of quid and i've already got my moneys worth out of it. It's an endless runner, with the graphical style that reminds me of the Spectrum/C64 days. It certainly has that one-more-go feeling to it and the fact that the stages are procedurally generated keeps the game fresh, despite is very simplistic setup. Definitely one for those who like chasing high scores and easily worth the asking price.

@Hero of Time interested to hear your thoughts on Snake Pass. I picked it up at launch and enjoyed it. Has a very N64 Rare vibe to it and gets pretty challenging in the late game. 

I had a quick go of it last and and found it to be very interesting and unique, mainly due to the way you have to move. The one thing I don't like is that if you've picked up collectibles and then die you have to then go pick them up again. :shakehead

If you go through a checkpoint again it will save them. Takes longer, but saves you doing a lot over and over again.

I didn't enjoy Snake Pass that much and gave up on it on the fourth level. The challenge mainly comes from the controls and while that is interesting it also gets frustrating. I don't think I have the patience for that. It did have a nice setting, though.

I completed Snake Pass but made the decision very early on that I wouldn't even attempt to get some of the collectibles so didn't get anywhere close to getting 100% in it. I never quite felt like I had the hang of the controls but had surprisingly few frustrating moments. I'll happily revisit it when the new content arrives but can't see myself playing through it again.

I gave up around the fourth level as well. I wasn't having fun at all and couldn't be bothered looking for the collectibles. The game was really unpolished as well.

Finished Thimbleweed Park. Loved it, but I am NOT good at adventure games. Had to use hints and guides a lot to get me through it, some of the puzzles were so obtuse I've no idea how anyone could figure them out without using a guide! Quite a bittersweet ending, but overall lots of fun and great writing/art.
