Game completion 2019 #20 – Ori and the Blind Forest

  • Platform: Xbox One
  • Developer: Moon Studios
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Ori and the Blind Forest has been all I’ve been able to think about this week. I think this may just be my best-in-genre.

Game completion 2019 #19 – My Friend Pedro

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: DeadToast Entertainment

A fun, but vapid slowmo shooter, which I’ll talk more about on the Switch Focus Podcast.

Game completion 2019 #18 – Katana ZERO

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Askiisoft
  • Publisher: Devolver Digital

A fun, but punishing side-scroller that, structurally speaking, reminded me a lot of Hotline Miami. I’ll be talking about it in-depth on episode 88 of the Switch Focus Podcast.

Game completion 2019 #17 – Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Brace Yourself Games
  • Publisher: Nintendo and Spike Chunsoft

A superb game that I’m amazed even exists. We talked about it at length in Episode 77 of the Switch Focus Podcast.

Game completion 2019 #16 – Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

  • Platform: Xbox One
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom

Enjoyable comic book nonsense in what I think is Capcom’s first proper story mode in a fighter? The mechanics may not be as tight as Street Fighter, nor the game as fun as its own predecessor, but there are certainly worse ways to spend four hours of your time.

Game completion 2019 #15 – The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: One Bit Beyond
  • Publisher: Devolver Digital

An enjoyable Zelda-styled roguelike that centres around a recurring curse (recursing?!) on the village of Ditto. I’ve just completed my first run, only to be thrown back in a later era, and with an added challenge of an invincible baddie chasing me around the map. Looking forward to playing some more!

Game completion 2019 #14 – Gato Roboto

  • Game: Gato Roboto
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Doinksoft
  • Publisher: Devolver Digital

A highly enjoyable and suitably succinct Metroid homage. Short but sweet.

Game completion 2019 #13 – New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

  • Game: New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo

A typical b-tier Nintendo game in that it won’t blow your socks off, but is a good time nonetheless.
