So, Hyper Light Drifter finally launched today. Backed it back in September 2013... Hard to be all that excited after such a long time. On the plus side, I'm finally down to just 1 outstanding Kickstarter (the Bitmap Brothers book) that I've paid for.

I like Hyper Light Drifter a fair bit after an hour or so of playtime, but it's a little tough to tell what to do or where to go since the game works so hard to avoid giving verbal directions. some of the checkpoints are are frustratingly placed, too, although that may just be me learning how not to die. the good stuff (the art style, the controls, the level design, etc) is all really impressive, though - so far HLD feels like a game which occupies the precise midpoint between Another World and Bastion, although I'll obviously need to make more progress before I can decide whether it deserves to be compared to games as good as either of those.

So is Mighty No. 9 really as bad as everyone says? Watched a LP and was kinda shocked that it didn't look that much better than that GameCube version of Megaman from a decade ago.

Bloodstained pushed to 1st Half 2018. Bummer, but I'd rather see a great game late than a mediocre one on time.

if u happen to have an Xbox for some reason, earthlock released on 9/1 as September's free game for live. it's surprisingly fun if you enjoy basically cookie cutter jrpg types. there are a couple of interesting twists on usual mechanics (addicting if mindless agriculture) and the art style is pretty good. im estimating 30 hrs for playthrough.

Obduction, a true sequel to Myst, was excellent. The scenery was beautiful and the story was interesting. The weirdest thing was when I first started this game and realized I couldn't jump and I didn't have an inventory menu. But damn this game was beautiful and it gets you hooked right away. Though, if you aren't much of an adventure gamer or you plan on using hints I might not recommend this game to you. There could of been more puzzles with more variation. Slow load times are noticeable in a couple locations. Overall, I can't complain too much.

If this was for FF VI, I would pay in a heartbeat. Still, it was a good article.

50k for a printed out Polygon article?
