The Goomba Stomp crew has put together a list of the 20 best indie games released in 2017.
As I do every year, it’s time for me to release a mixtape sampling my favourite tracks from the best video game soundtracks of 2017.
Before we get into the list, it's worth stating that this is my personal list of my favorite games. This doesn't necessarily mean I think they're the greatest games ever made (although a few of them are), they're simply my personal favorite. That being said, feel free to let me know how terrible this list is on twitter.
The gaming year of 2017 has truly seen an embarrassment of riches in terms of games that are well worth the time and money of discerning gamers everywhere.
A lot of the talk concerning Cuphead since its release has centered around the the sheer challenge of it's difficulty. The run and gun action of Cuphead is intensely challenging, so it's no surprise to hear it occasionally compared to Dark Souls -- a series which is known primarily for its difficulty.
There is much more to admire about Cuphead, from the swinging jazz soundtrack to the tough boss battles to the game’s eccentric pair of stars, but without a doubt, the game’s animation is its most immediately distinctive characteristic
In addition to capturing the fluidity and peculiarity of early Western cartoons, Cuphead features many characters and visual elements that closely resemble those from actual early 20th century animated shows.
Should all games be made as accessible as possible or should difficulty be dependent on the type of game being played?
Should games cater to those who don't desire to be challenged in any form, or should they maintain a minimum difficulty standard that all players must be required to meet? Fire off your thoughts in the comments below.
This week the Game Boys are joined by the friendly faces of Cuphead and Mugman. Well, not literally, but the long awaited, run-n-gun, boss battle beat-em-up, Cuphead, is finally out. On top of that, the SNES Classic also came out. Did the Game Boys manage to get their hands on them? What was the experience of trying to get one like compared to the NES Classic? Listen in on Game Boys!
