I think I remember melkathi playing it on Steam. Looks interesting. 

 

melkathi was a kickstarter backer for the game.

It is a fun little game. I have 38 hours on it according to steam, but I did spend some time running back and forth looking for a sidequest that wasn't actually in the area I was looking :p

Did not regret backing it. Wrote a Steam review.

Why, I forgot the old logic: if a game makes melkathi stop playing Mordheim than it is definitely good.  :grin:

2b or not 2b? That is the question.

Really great bundle, and one that includes a bunch of games I don't already own (Steamworld Heist is the only one I do own).  I'll almost certainly get at least the beat the average tier for Kentucky Route Zero, even if I won't play it until all 5 episodes are finished (so likely not until 2019  :p ).  I am tempted to grab the $13 tier for Owlboy as well.

I don't really like talking about Owlboy, because I hate to only faintly praise a game, but it's what's appropriate for it. Awesome pixel-art graphics, but overall just a decent/solid game, not much more. Nothing of the story, dialogue, or gameplay is bad, but none of it is really that good, either - just decent.

Same with Hollow Knight... people are calling it a masterpiece but I think it has some flaws which fans are quick to deny.

It's a phenomenal Metroidvania with awesome hand drawn graphic and addicting combat but the lore is iffy, generic at best. The voice acting (what very little) is cure but meh. The platforming can be fun or frustrating and lastly the backtracking is crazy - even with the fast travel beetle function... the open world is such a huge place that it can be daunting. Even for someone familiar with it.

As far as Owlboy, I haven't played it yet but I want to. I loke the color palette but the main character isn't appealing to me for some reason (maybe why I haven't bought it yet) if the main character doesn't grab my attention, I tend to wait on the game longer. Hopefully that doesn't sound shallow on my behalf.

I refuse to play games based on silly things sometimes, so I don't know. For example, though I think the gameplay looks like fun, I'm just gonna have to straight up refuse to play a game called "Immortal Redneck". The game has a nice setting (Egyptian pyramids, from what I saw), decent-looking gameplay...but you play as an immortal...redneck? I mean, come on, guys - I just can't do that. Meanwhile, a few of my friends got into Overwatch a while back and I refused just on the basis of the character design of literally almost every single character being just absolutely totally atrocious. I just don't have the motivation to get into a game where the presentation seems so bad - got other stuff to do.

Same, usually for very small reasons for me also.

I'm not a graphics whore but if something doesn't look visually appealing to me, I won't bother... I love pixel art, hand drawn and cel-shading. I'm actually pretty lenient on graphics.

Another thing is the characters, if I don't like the designs or the personalities then I might never have any interest in the game.

Bad soundtracks can be another thing. I love a good soundtrack - and this is a newer thing that has become a make or break for me. I never really cared about how good the soundtrack of a game is until I played games like Brigador and Ys.

I'm old so I've become more picky I guess lol

I've become less picky about games as I've gotten older. There are games in my library now I wouldn't have looked at ten years ago.

 

I do try to avoid outright bad games, but I suspect some people here may have different criteria from me in judging some games as good or bad. :)

Xbox live is having a backwards compatibility sale, a ton of their backwards compatible games for dirt cheap, can play on both xbone and 360 for those of us who game on console as well.

DOUBLE POST ALERT!!!

So I got gifted a copy of a pretty sweet game today called "Geneshift", it's basically GTA2 with rpg elements like Diablo type skill-tree and then add some Hotline Miami. It's cyber-punkish/mutant-esque so you can get powers and upgrades, etc.

It's on sale for $7.99 (from $9.99)... it's in early access so it will probably be around $19.99 when it's fully released.
