And today the physical copy arrived, so finally I could try Celeste out, this is the first time I've played this game. Wow! Only played for a little while, but the graphics, music and gameplay really got me hooked. I think it will take some time before I master the controls though.

Oh, and LRG have produced a great physical edition!

@Quarth
That’s good news! I definitely agree it’s a great game and LRG’s physical edition is top notch. And no update patches whatsoever the first time I booted up the cart, just plug and play! That speaks volumes in this day and age.
I got up to stage 5 before taking a break for another LRG physical gem, River City Girls 😄
I’ll go back to Celeste and take my time with it, even if Luigi distracts me a bit this week Really such an uplifting game even if the strawberry gathering can drive me crazy.
I hope you enjoy it as well!

@Teksetter Yeah, LM3 will get the most attention right now. Will pick that one up this afternoon. Oh, and then we got the backlog... Witcher 3, Ni No Kuni, Baldur's Gate... all started recently. Glad I at least got DQXI, FE:TH and TLoZ:ALttP out of the way.

But the thing that's great with Celeste is how easy it is to pick up and play for some minutes, before going on to meatier games.

Started playing the game recently. Good game, very weak graphics though. But man, is it HARD!! Chapter 4, with all the wind arrggghhhh!! I almost gave up. Almost.

@Henmii The game has strong art design, but the character sprites are garbage. It's actually what kept me from playing the game for years.

I ended up putting in 28 hours or so into it. Good game.

Played any of the B-Side levels yet?

@Ralizah,

I tried one b-side so far, but got to a part where I couldn't get further. I'll try it again later.

Pretty sure they wanted the graphics like that, guys.... (Sorry if I'm not picking up the sarcasm)

I like them. Or at the least I never minded them.

Yes, the game is really good (and really hard). If only the graphics weren't that simplistic (why doesn't Madeline have a face?). Other then that it's great.

I have almost every Strawberry. I have the tapes. I have all crystal hearts minus one (I had to look a couple up, they are very hard to find). Now I only need to finish the core, Farewell levels, and all the b, c, and d-sides. Let's face it, that aint gonna happen. I am already perplexed that I finished the Resort b-side: It was insane!!

So this is my favorite game on Switch so far, and the most obsessed I've been with a game beyond Nintendo...IPs (lol AM2R ftw) since probably Undertale. Like I've been playing it long after I should have gone to something else, and I continually want to watch Youtube vids on it.

Beyond the many other reasons why its so good, I love how this game combines really challenging but mostly fair gameplay with artsy indie game storytelling. There are some games that really try to make profound stories out of taking full advantage of gameplay as part of narrative (as in playing it enhances your engagement to the story, instead of playing a game and merely watching good story related cutscenes, for example). But most of those try to go outside of traditional video game gameplay. Like Journey or walking simulators. But outside of borderline not having enemies, Celeste is just a straight up great platformer. But playing that great platformer makes the story of climbing this mountain feel all the more powerful, as you keep trying to reach the top via platforming challenges. Especially in the last couple of levels. ESPECIALLY when my hands were really hurting going through that entire last level, its almost like I experienced a tiny amount of that struggle myself. Which was not intentional I assume, but added a lot. It's kinda like if Rayman Legends had a strong, emotional story.

And there's plenty of games where I love the gameplay and story, but very few combined them as well as this imo.

Yeah, this is not normally my type of game, and I do not struggle with depression. If either of those things were true for me this might be my favorite game ever, that's how good it is. I really enjoyed my time with it, even if it did make my hand cramp sometimes.

It's definitely one of the best 2D platformers of the last decade if not all time. Going back to it from time to time I do sometimes feel the character is a bit stiff, especially on the ground, but that's nitpicky for an otherwise awesome game.
