anyone interested in checking this out there is a fairly substantial demo available to try out pretty much all the mechanics... I personally found the additional mechanics to take away from the purity of the platforming which meat boy offered, as in I felt it was a "more is less" sort of feeling, but I bet if you got into using the extra moves it would become second nature.

What I have not enjoyed so far is the lack of precision in points like the dash mechanics.

Use the Joy-Cons. The Pro Controller blows with this game.

Thanks everyone for keeping the shop busy while I was away. All this input is making this new city spot loads of fun so far!
I will keep the grand opening stuff there till the weekend is over, and then I will do some clean up. Coffee is still fresh if anyone wants?

BTW what do you guys think of Human Fall Flat? It's been updated with a multiplayer mode and with a discount,
but I think the game has performance issues.

So, let's start with Human Resource Machine.

I also Human Resource Machine on the PC, but I heard this was one of the first Switch titles to receive gyro-pointer controls... or was it World of Goo? I like World of Goo the most from Tomorrow Corporation.

You reminded me to check out my wish list on the Eshop to look at which games I was waiting for next ...

I actually already reached my limit of games on the wishlist (200). But I'm quite liberal to put things on the wishlist, it is just enough with: deserves a second look. But reaching the limit was incentive to look through the list and remove stuff that does not hold up against other things. And games I already bought (why does the eshop not remove wishlist items I bought over the eshop? It list in the wishlist the game as bought, could as well have removed it).

What? There is a 200 games limit? Thankfully I only have 40 in there, for now.

I'll recommend Super Slime San. It's basically a super meat boy clone, but a damned good one. Just don't try playing it with the Pro Controller. The D-Pad on the Pro Controller isn't accurate enough for this game.

I sent in my pro controller to the Dutch customer service and they returned it saying there was no problem But you and me know there is a dpad issue in the pro, it registers up/down if you press left/right slightly updwards/downwards... it was horrible in PuyoPuyo and I sometimes do wrong taunts on Rocket League due to this...

Either way, I read this for a Dpad fix, still on my to-do-list: http://www.ateijelo.com/blog/2017/07/12/effective-fix-switch-pro-controller-dpad-issues

Celeste As far as I'm concerned, this is the best game available for the Switch bar none. It's a simple-to-learn, virtually-impossible-to-truly-master 2D platforming game that controls with extreme precision. But that's just the beginning! Celeste is also a beautiful, and genuinely moving, story about navigating depression and anxiety that really hits home for me. The story bits are not forced in or intrusive (in fact, you can opt out of them), but are placed in locations that make them feel like truly natural occurrences in a way that most games don't pull off as well.

I knew Celeste was special, but waiting for a discount does take some discipline I didn't know I had in me. I have truly become Dutch.

I've already mentioned Celeste, Night in the Woods, and 20XX, but here are some of my other top indie recommendations that are available for the Switch:

-Inside
-Hollow Knight
-Crypt of the NecroDancer
-The Messenger <-- Playing this one right now; it's GOOD!
-Cosmic Star Heroine
-Oxenfree



My gf is laying Axiom Verge right now for ca. 7h nonstop. I think she is digging it.

I think I'll pass. Not my type of game.

I'm playing into the breach right now. Fun game. The graphics could be better but the gameplay is very addictive.

When is it suppose to go out ?

It was one of the few indies I was hyped for during E3.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

The highlights of the eshop for me so far are:

Celeste

Freedom Planet, which I'll keep buying as many times as you want Galaxy Trail.

Hollow Knight

Iconoclasts, really charming metroidvania, the humor reminds me a lot of Paper Mario, the visuals and boss battle focus remind me a lot of Mischief Makers, which is always an easy way to get into my heart.

Shovel Knight

The Messenger, what I have played from it, is turning out to be a really special game.

Yoku's Island Express, an excellent mix of metroidvania and pinball, beautiful art and music and pretty nice story. Even if you are not big on pinball (like me) is really accessible.

 

Of course there is also a lot of other really good games like Wonder Boy, Ikaruga, Crossing Souls, etc. But I think the ones I listed are the must have titles from the store.



Oh, I forgot to mention Ittle Dew 2+ before! Don't be put off by the bland visual style: it's an outstanding and loving tribute to the classic overhead Legend of Zelda games with an excellent sense of humor.
