This is... quite a week for Switch indies. Stardew Valley, Axiom Verge, Volgarr the Viking, Tumblestone... all well reviewed games!

And then you have Layton on the 3DS!

@Zero Wow I didn't even see Volgarr buried down there. And I seem to remember Tiny Barbarian getting a little buzz years ago. Oh, and Oxenfree I think, too.

Yeah this week is packed with indies. None of them are *new* (and some are quite old) but the volume is definitely impressive.

This Layton game is a port of the mobile one, right?

I need Axiom Verge, Earth Atlantis, and Volgarr.
I also really want Oxenfree.

Wtf Nintendo.

I can't keep up with all of this. And next week we're getting The Flame in the Flood, and Super Mario Odyssey is just around the corner. I need to quit my job.

@carlosrox
A job is essentially the concept of you providing a company with your services in exchange for currency which you can then in turn exchange for goods and services from other companies.

*ba-dum-tsssss*

Sorry.


It's a rogue-ish survival adventure where you and your dog travel along a river and explore various islands and locations in a post-apocalyptic american south. Seems like a good one, I think.

YES! I've been waiting for a discount on Puzzle & Dragons on 3DS for like...EVER! Finally! My patience has paid off!

From what I understand, it's the same game. But with all the content included right off the bat, instead of having to buy it piecemeal like the phone version.

Volgarr the Viking is a lot of fun. Finding it much easier to play with the Swtich Pro and at a steady framerate.

@r_hjort

That is a unique-looking game! I won't be buying day one with everything else going on but I will keep an eye on it.

@r_hjort

HAHAHA!!!

Also, that's a great trailer to that game. Man, there's too much to play on the switch. I usually hop on the shop every few weeks and marvel at the games that have been added, several of which I've never heard of. Good on you, Nintendo! What an awesome problem to have.

Wait, when did Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime release? It's not on the list but I read somewhere that it released the 3rd? Since when do games release on a Tuesday?

It's a fun / unique local co-op game where you're all controlling the same big spaceship with multiple stations everyone can run around to to move, shoot, etc. Requires some real coordination. It was pretty well reviewed too and it's worth checking out.

Wtf is with the difficulty in Volgarr lol. It's awesome but I can't even get past the first fucking checkpoint or whatever this is.

Reminds me of Ghouls n Ghosts and Actraiser/2. It's fucking brutal and it's already pissing me off lol.

Axiom Verge is pretty awesome. Happy to finally play it.

Am I the only one here picking up Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions today?

Another overwhelming week! I'll start with Volgarr and go from there...

I'm so tempted to rebut all of the indies that I have on PSN and Steam. I really should wait for a sale, though.

(BTW, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is one of the best co-op games ever.)

@GameDadGrant
Maybe. Is it on Switch?

On a serious note, does it have 3D?

1.) No.

2.) I think? I'll let you know once I try it out!

...so weird to question/not know if a 3DS game has 3D. Never thought that would be a thing to ask, yet here we are.

@carlosrox Volgarr is BRUTAL at first. Even when you learn what you need to do, you'll still fail at it a bunch, even the parts you're well familiar with. But at some point it just clicks, and suddenly everything is completely reflexive. After a few hours I was cruising through the early levels, and even the later ones that were completely new to me benefit tremendously from the muscle memory the early game beats into you.

@GameDadGrant
It IS weird. In this, our age of Switch, though, 3D is a big selling point for me. It's the main competitive advantage of the 3DS!
