Rayman Legends is an awesome game for anyone who hasn't played it yet.

Nothing for me this week.

Why is Double Dragon 4 treated like a footnote/blurb?

Will get with next paycheque. Played it on PS4 with my bro but this game belongs on Switch for legacy reasons. Buying out of respect.

The game was kinda disappointing to be honest, I expected a bit more and it felt kinda cheap, but it had a new combat system I really wanted to get the hang of. I remember it being pretty tough too. It's no Double Dragon 2, but maybe it was insane to expect something that good. It was still a good effort, and it's definitely *something*.

I'm very tempted to get Rayman Legends...

Wow, lots of stuff this week. Kind of too much.

Detana Twinbee is awesome, but is anyone still buying VC stuff on Wii U? Like, how can this possibly be profitable?

I just read some reviews for Double Dragon 4 and they say it's pretty bad. That's disappointing since I'm always looking for a retro fix.

I heard from a friend who played it on PC that NeuroVoider is supposed to be quite awesome. Tempted to pick it up...

Picked up NeuroVoider (& Overcooked! ..finally) last night. It's. .. awesome? It's a twin-stick shooter w/ some RPG & 'roguelite' elements, really digging it so far. Kind of a co-op Nuclear Throne, i guess. Definitely need at least one local co-op partner to get the most fun out if it, otherwise its kinda ridiculously hard. You have to solo daily runs tho, so single player is good practice if nothing else. Also Overcooked is amazing but has the same caveat, in that local co-op buddies are almost necessary

Got back from PAX / Seattle on friday, so I'm kinda on a indie-kick right now. Played a TON of indies/Nindies over the course of 4 days so I'll try to write up some impressions in the near future

@vinniebrock
I was just watching some Neurovoider reviews today. It looks awesome. I'll definitely pick it up at some point.

Make a thread with your Nindie impressions! Indies are the lifeblood of the Switch!

@Anand
Workin' on it, mostly done now. Proofreading etc. Also i agree.

I was about to buy Mario + Rabbids when i looked at my wishlist on the Switch and saw about 30 indie games & decided to give some of them a shot instead. And I'm glad i did. NeuroVoider is awesome. So is Overcooked, and stuff like Has-Been Heroes & Graceful Explosion Machine that i picked up before. And most importantly, they all just feel so 'at-home' on the Switch, as did the Nindies i played at PAX.
 
Still will get Mario + Rabbids at some point, might just throw it on the Christmas list lol
