I saw a thing for Cuphead, I can’t believe no one’s thought to make a game in that style before, it looks so great.


More like they cannot, its not easy way , its painstaking and yeah its cool.
It manually done on paper first , i detailed in one of post earlier.

Came here to post this Tongue

 

Brash Games - 10/10

The Sixth Axis - 10/10

Punk and Lizard - 10/10

Vita Lounge - 5/5

Push square - 10/10

PSN Stores - 5/5

Videogamer - 8/10

Eurogamer - 8/10

Digital Spy - 4/5

Edge - 8.

“Superb difficulty curve going from braindead to very hard with no two levels feeling like an uneven rise in difficulty. Don’t judge the game too early as it gets a lot deeper, but never overwhelming. Focus is on mixing different play mechanics more than having a billion unique mechanics.”

Hey need to know if i can use my PS+ Trial (14days) option on 15th after i get Destiny
to get this Free as well as Destiny Crucible(which requires PSN+).
My strategy is to use the trial to play the crucible and get this game for free??

Can i do that??


Edit:

Wow 9 from IGN, glad its getting recognition.

Yes, but once your trial is up the game will become unplayable.

PS+ free games are only available while you are a member.

You also need PSN+ for online gaming so Destiny will require it at all times unless you plan on completing the game in 14 days.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

That is true, you only need PS+ for co-op and multiplayer in Destiny.

About PS+ I would only want to add that when the subcription runs out and the games become unplayable, anytime you reactivate it in the future you can play them again even if the game is already not part of the PS+ program.

But the 14 days should be at least enough to pay Velocity 2X Smile

Edit - Speaking of indies and PS+, Joe Danger (developers of No Mans Sky) and TxK are also available this month for Vita

Joe Danger is ok, nothing special - kind of like Trials but I really like TxK, a spiritual sequel to Tempest with an awesome. Check out some gameplay:

Hey, great thread. I love digging for indie gems. Really hyped about Hyper Light Drifter. Thumbs up for Cuphead, as well. I adore this art style.

Here are some others

Samurai Gunn

It’s a one screen melee combat game for 1 to 4 players playing at the same time. Strictly hotseat, no internet multyplayer. It sounded disappointing at the beginning but don’t mind that. I haven’t had such entertaining multiplayer sessions since I was a kid. The game looks really minimal in terms of vision and gameplay but it’s huge and deep. Really nice animations, with a stylish bushido cinematographic vibe to it. And awesome game physics that reveals itself the more you dig into it (only three action buttons - jump, katana,gun and a million ways to use them). Developer is Teknopants (who btw is making some of the animations for Hyper Light Drifter).

trailer

Hotline Miami

Haven’ played this much. Minimalistic action game in the spirit of GTA1 minus the big world and the whole stealing cars thing. Just mini missions in some closed areas. Very bloody. There will be a sequel too. But nothing really special about it, I guess.

gameplay

Cart Life

Still haven’t played this but I’ll definitely give it a try. I really wowed from just seeing the trailer. Don’t even know how to describe it. A life simulator or something Smile I think it won some indie game awards.

Tons of games being released, a huge backlog and I just spent a ton a time playing Pix the Cat Smile

Free game of the month in PS+ (PS4 and Vita). Hugely addicting score attack mode.
It has other puzzles modes, but most of my time was spent in that Main board in those hellish 5min trying to get that high score.
Now at 1.250.000.
Anyone tried this?
