"Apex Legends, Sea of Solitude and Gnosia"
When you're so unenthusiastic about this weeks releases you don't bother to include the usual exclamation! marks!
Geez someone is trying to steal a few bucks of unsuspecting gamers.
A long list of nothing.
Getting gnosia as a splurge. After that it is just waiting for SoS , monster hunter and amalur for me.
My next purchase probably won't be until monster hunter
Apex Legends for sure.
Mail Mole pending review.
Will be getting Sea of Solitude for sure, the rest are just meh.
Thank goodness for a slow week after the last few. Might grab Metboy on sale at some point, the mobile version was surprisingly fun.
Welp, the word "Gnosia" will be stuck in my head all day. I'll spend the day pondering in the back of my brain "gun-nose-zuh" "nosia" "nose-zuh"... Is the G silent? Is it in there?
Super Metboy is a very original title that surely is not at all trying to capitalize on something else.
@ChromaticDracula The G isn't silent going by the pronunciation from the Indie World Showcase.
Also for whatever is worth, really cool game based on my first few hours.
@BenAV Thanks! The game does sound really cool. Spaceship and RPG are two flags for me. I'll be checking it out for sure
Gnosia sounds interesting. I may pick that up in the future. Nothing until Pokemon Snap for me though
Not buying anything this week, as far as I know. Not voting above until Mail Mole gets a review.
I'm still waiting for the Splatoon 3 placeholder to appear on the eshop. It's been on the Nintendo site for almost a week.
Doug Hates His Job? Well then, he shouldn't have grown up from his meager-but-contented existence in Bluffington's prestigious Beebee Bluff Middle School.
@Ryu_Niiyama I can't wait for KoA!!!
I want to give them the benefit of the doubt, but "Super Metboy" sounds utterly shameless.
Gnosia is fun so far!! I would recommend it. It's fun deciding who is lying to pick off everybody one by one each loop. Will also pick up Sea of Solitude at some point as well.
Nothing this week, though I might pick up Gnosia in the future.
I noticed another Arcade Archives release, today, not listed here, 'Legend of Makai'. It seems more interesting than Guerrilla War since that was already on the SNK 40th compilation.
Guys I’m sure super metboy is a completely 100% original game that no one else has ever thought of. Right?
In all seriosness the only game I will get this month new is probably crash 4
@fragranthills I love your Perfume avatar!
What’s your favorite song? (I’m assuming Spice)
Dream Land is mine.
Sorry, where are my manners? Hi I’m Ryu, and I’ve been a Perfume mega fan since 2003. Seen them twice (got sick the third time so I had to skip) and I own all their albums. Nice to meet you!
Been really hoping for a solid chopper game on the Switch. Even though it seems pretty cheaply made, I hope Ace Combat scratches a bit of the Desert Strike itch.
Preloaded Gnosia. Hoping to be able to find some time to duck aside and play it today, as I'm quite excited for it!
Nothing else until Monster Hunter, though. I already have too much to play as is.
Apex Legends, just to see if it'll run at all.
I love Apex, can't wait for new people to try the game out. It is a bit difficult/fast/overwhelming at first, which is why some people are turned off by it initially, but so worth it. The best multiplayer FPS I've played for sure.
Cool, nothing I'm interested in. My wallet looks pleased.
No mention the actual Arcade Archives game is Legend of Makai.
It's what happens when Jaleco licenses Wizards & Warriors for the Japanese market (the Famicom), and then clones it (for the arcade).
@Ryu_Niiyama Hey there! Thanks, and nice to meet you!
I'm fragrant hills, and I've been a fan since Triangle. My favorite song is probably Spring of Life, but Spice is definitely up there!
Which shows did you attend? I was lucky enough to attend two myself, World Tour 3rd and the first night of Cosmic Explorer (front row, just the most amazing experience ever), both in NYC.
It seems like there's a lot of Perfume fans on NL, for some reason! Probably because we're people of extremely good taste.
@fragranthills World 3rd tour in NYC and Future Pop in San Jose. I had tickets for Cosmic Explorer in NYC but got very sick that week so I had to cancel... I was devastated.
Oooh Spring of Life! I’d say that, Nee and nananananairo are my favorite PVs! Oh yeah Perfume fans are everywhere if you know what to look for. My avatar is usually Perfume related but I have this one up because I am looking forward to the new story of seasons.
