Since when did Dark Souls become the sole representative of 3rd person medival fantasy games?

Back to topic: Rogue Legacy. That game is very addictive. It gives of a GhostsnGhouls vibe, but they also were kind enough to includenpuzzle rooms.

Is it?  I only try to compare games to Demons/Dark Souls if it has a similar difficulty-factor.  Oh well...

Rouge Legacy I need to try.  It looks great and fun and fun and great.  I also finally got Dust and am playing through that.  Beautiful game to say the least.

But Lords of the Fallen?  Borderlands slash Dark Souls?  Seems...contradictory?

It's what the article said, don't know how true it'll be.

I bought Dust: An Elysian Tale, as it was half off on Steam, and let me just say it's been a long time since I've completely lost track of time playing a game.

My only complaint is that combat is too easy.  Should have gone for a harder difficulty.

Ah, I nabbed it in the sale too but haven't started playing quite yet. I'll have to select a harder difficulty then! :P

I haven't played a "Metroidvania" game in a very long time, so I thought I'd go with Normal difficulty.  I decided to focus on Attack (melee damage).  Only the strongest of enemies give me pause.

I always choose the highest difficulty level, if possible.

I don't generally approve of un-lockable difficulty levels unless it's something like Muramasa Demon Blade's one hit kill mode. All standard challenge levels (easy/easiest, normal, hard/hardest) should be selectable from the go.

Right!?  I keep loosing track of time whilst playing.  It's just so fun!  I agree though that the combat is easy so I went ahead and upped the difficulty to hard.

Ya, I picked it up. As far as I heard about the game it was done by one dude save for the music and a few other little things. The art is beautiful, Dean Dondrill really poured his soul into it just from how it looks.

Both the art and animation are fantastic stuff and really stand out (to me anyway) especially when in the middle of a high-numbered combo and you manage to catch all of the details of the character's movements.  And the soundtrack is spot on as well.  HyperDuck does some really fantastic work for games and I'm glad I found them and stalk them through the first game music bundle a while back.

  That's what I heard also!  He did a fantastic job and I love all the other game references and Easter eggs he threw into it aswell!

Started playing some Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers yesterday and today and I absolutely love it. It's super short, yes, but all the little secrets and such in it make it last a lot longer than if you just speed through it as fast as you can. It stuffs a lot of great personality into a small package with its art, music, humorous writing and interesting mechanics, and I can appreciate that. It really helps that the soundtrack is so damn good. Lots of catchy stuff in there.

Well then I'm glad the game is in my steam library, I'll have to play it sometime.

I managed to purchase a copy of the Cube World open alpha, that was most of my day gone today.

A single/multiplayer class-based fantasy action-rpg with voxel graphics that boasts infinite leveling and procedurally generated worlds along with pets, sailing, and hang-gliding.

There's some problems at the moment with registering an account and buying the game due to the developer's server struggling with the load, but with a system like Minecraft (you buy early you get updates free) I'd say it was a worthwhile purchase.

It was from yours and the rest of the folks here that made me get it. Haven't got to it but I'm super excited. And he really did do amazing work. I saw it when it was on X-Box Arcade and just...wow. I was so upset it wasn't on computer.

Really want to get into this as well, let me know what you think. It looked cool so far.

It's a load of fun, and I am thoroughly enjoying myself, though I would say it's a little lacking in content, at least in that there are limited things to do.

1.) You can craft new equipment and items (food, potions), as long as they're of your level and of your class.  You do this mostly by gathering materials from the world and buying/receiving formulas.
2.) You can explore by traveling, hang-gliding, riding, climbing, swimming, and sailing.
3.) You can level up endlessly.
4.) You can go on "missions", which are markers on the world map for dungeons and or bosses that refresh every in-game day, granting you extra XP for emerging victorious against those bosses.
5.) You can use Pet Food to collect pets ranging from animals to monsters.  This feels a bit like Pokemon, and at the moment it's not necessarily known which food will attract which pets.
6.) You can use port forwarding on your routes to join a multiplayer server.  Up to 4 players together.

Certainly enough to keep you occupied alone, and even more so with friends, but I feel it could use more to do in the long run.  But of course it's an open alpha, still in development and all that.
