In recognition of Baba Is You making the Top 10 this year I went back to my save a couple hours in and solved a tough secret area I'd gotten stuck on. Then I found the SECOND secret area and decided this game was too hard.

Also holy poo poo I knew DE was gonna win but the scale of that victory is surely going to itself be a record that doesn't get touched for several threads to come. Then again, who knows, it's not like anyone expected Disco Elysium would be coming out and stomping over everything else.

So as noted earlier I'm always going to win the Biggest Hipster award cause of my weird gaming habits so if I was out of contention the next person in line for the prize would have been Captain Invictus who's highest ranked pick was Indivisible at #51.
Yep that's me, that's what they call me!

And I don't think indivisible was a hit at all, there's basically no fanart which is usually a decent gauge of a game's popularity, especially one tailor-made for fanart like indivisible is. Like, there's not even that much fanart of Razmi, the best new character of 2019. It's such a shame, it's a wonderful game. But maybe in Cassandra-like fashion, lab zero is cursed to make wonderful games that nobody plays

Maybe after they add all the playable guest characters (shovel knight of course, shantae, a bunch of other indie darlings, I think hollow knight too) as well as the backer characters, and it comes out on switch, hopefully more people will give it a go. At least I hope folks in this thread wishlist it for pickup later, it's a wonderful game with wonderful characters, writing, voice acting, music, and megaman x-styled platforming.

I played that game like a madman when it first came out, got through everything, collected all the secrets thingies and did the optional stuff and... just stalled at the very final boss. I can even get him to the final phase, but the night I played best I just couldn't do it and had to go to bed. I only ever gave it a couple stabs weeks later and was too rusty to do any better, but was still surprised how much was still committed to muscle memory. I just got further than anyone at work or my friend group, so I never had real competition to fire me up for the final hurdle. 2020 is my time to finally beat the final boss.

Yeah the last boss fight is a brick wall, really. The game kicked my rear end up and down the road but I persevered through everything it threw at me but the last boss felt so insurmountable after several playsessions of attempts I just found a trainer to slow the game speed down and cheated through it to see the ending. I really don't feel too bad about it - I get the concept but I just lacked the finesse and the punishment for not executing the fight perfectly is so severe that if I had the option to do so quickly, I'd want to restart after every mistake.

I found myself doing it for Blasphemous lately so I think my patience for punishing bosses has finally reached its peak. Hollow Knight seems like a good compromise where mechanically the bosses have a varied moveset, but they don't throw many curveballs at you when you've learned it.

Thanks Rarity for putting this thing together!

Thoughts:

-Got Sekiro last week (along with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, DMCV, and Judgment) and have been playing through it at a solid clip. Was SORELY tempted to replace my #1 (REmake 2) with it, but decided to stick to my guns It's already a strong contender for my #1 next year, though.
-Can't wait for Disco Elysium to make it to consoles; I probably won't like it as much as other goons, but I am extremely curious about it.
-Y'all need to play Samurai Shodown.

For what it's worth your post made me put Indivisible on my soon-to-play list whereas before it wasn't even on my radar. The protagonist sounds dope and the art style is just amazing.

thanks, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Ajna is a hot mess of a person and I kinda like that about her. She's a tomboyish, impulsive meathead, and a huge fuckup, wanting to do the right thing but also constantly ruining carefully laid plans or walking into traps because she's right and nobody can tell her otherwise. The game has problems, I won't lie, but I endured them because I loved everything else about it.

It's hard to find gifs so I made one. This video has audio of the first gif and it's super good to see his reaction to the moves, but close it after he exits the training fight

also, check this music, it's the theme of Naga Rider, and is absurdly heroic

You are about a third of the way through the game. Maybe a quarter. The character sidequests(loyalty mission style) near the end of the game, which I found mostly good even if they use existing assets, are generally great story and character building stuff and can add an extra few hours to the end of the game, so if you do those too, you're about a quarter through.

I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG, BROTHER!


So what exactly IS Outer Wilds? Is there puzzles or is more just generally a walking sim? (I love walking sims). Is there a good story? Are there survival elements? (I hate survival stuff). Is it pretty linear? I prefer linear but I heard you can travel to any planet in any order. Is it long or short?

The trailer does a bad job of selling what the game actually is, but it seems to be getting rave reviews.
