Guacamelee, a new metroidvania beat-em-up
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:18:39 AM »
trailer
Played a demo 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 mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

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.
