Keeping the great pace of indie games from 2018. Im loving!



Wow!  I expected the regular Directs to be good (like the one in February), but I had no idea the indies would be really good too.  Games that look interesting:

Cuphead! - Hell of a way to start off a direct.  I was considering getting an XB1 for a few games like this.  Looks like I won't need to now.

My Friend Pedro - That just looks like a badass run and gun.

Katana Zero - Going to wait to see how it reviews, but looks like it has potential.

Rad - Double Fine always has some interesting concepts.  Execution varies, but I'm keeping an eye on this one.

Pine - Reminds me a lot of Breath of the Wild.  Doubt it will be as good as the real thing, but what is really?  If it's executed well enough could be worth a play.

Blaster Master Zero II - I really love the first NES game.  This looks fun.

Stranger Things II - Looks fun.  I dig both Stranger things and this style of game.

Cadence of Hyrule - Hell yes!  Game looks addictive and a Zelda theme makes it all the better.


Of course, I say all this with the idea that these games will have a physical release.  The ones that get a physical release I am very likely to buy, while if it doesn't have a physical release then it's a skip.  The only exception I see myself making is with Cuphead.  I may eventually just buy this digitally, but I will probably wait a while just to see if they make a physical version anyway.



I love how so many of these games are going for the low-poly but polished look of a PS2 on steroids. A lot of these games are AA in their production values. All those devs that used to make 3DS and DS games are coming to Switch as Indie devs. That's a fantastic turn of events, because all these games look at least a little interesting. Sure, not all of them will be must buys, but a few of them might. All of them will at least be decent.

Also, if anybody likes couch co-op dungeon crawlers check out Crawl. That game is nuts!

Another usual "meh" for a Nindies Direct. Blaster Master Zero 2 was the highlight in a sea of mediocrity, and if it wasn't for the crossover with Zelda, that Necrodancer game would be another title nobody really cares about.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

The lack of the goose game is indeed a point against it. But otherwise it's not that bad. Cuphead and Cryptodancer of Zelda are nice, and the Pedro shooter looks fun as well. I would've loved to see some japanese rpgs as well, but you can't have anything in one go. They will most likely do another one in a couple of months.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Overland looks very interesting, turn-based strategy games are very welcome.
