Title: Guacamelee, a new metroidvania beat-em-up
Post by: insertnamehere on February 23, 2013, 02:18:39 AM
trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hGPyHacsG0)
Played a demo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kh4QQ8POYWk) at Target a few months ago and just started thinking about it again, wanting to play it.
I believe it may be exclusive to PSN based on some things I've read but also saw a few things about it being on XBLA, and no concrete release date yet far as I know.

I like what I've seen, but I'll wait for some reviews first before getting excited. Might be a while, too...

Trailer reminds me of Megaman-X2.

I'll admit this game didn't really catch my eye when I first saw it, but it's getting great reviews and the art style is really cool.  I might have to check it out.  Being cross-buy certainly doesn't hurt either.

I bought this and tried it out last night.  It's a blast.  Kinda simply-designed for a Metrovania (most if not all of the secret passages are visible on the stage map, with a color label depending on what special move is required to break through it), but the platforming and combat both have some neat tricks.  Definitely recommended.
