Autumnal Waterfall 50 – Valthirian Arc 2

This time, I am writing about a free flash game. I’ve done it once before here (insert link to hotel manager). The game is Valthirian Arc 2, the sequel to the fantasy school simulator. It boasts some cutesy graphics while having better gameplay than the first. Now, there are actual school grounds that expand and grow as your school fame levels up. You also have a staff that’s mostly there to add life and flavor to your school. Once again, you are a principal trying to run a school for adventurers and stuff.

Play it at Newgrounds here or perhaps other placed where flash games are hosted, too.

A nice, quaint school.

Autumnal Waterfall 49 – Guacamelee!

Welcome to Guacamelee!, one of my favorite games released on 2013. It is a platforming beat’em’up that lets you roam from level to level. You unlock new skills that lets you reach other areas in previous levels, and everything is wrapped up in great presentation and humor.

I find everything about this game just so well done, from the combat to the platforming. The platforming, especially, can get quite tricky, which I really like. The combat is punchy, fast-paced and satisfying. The entire art style is seeping with color and Mexicaness (that’s not a word).

I would recommend playing with a controller, but a keyboard shouldn’t be too bad.

Let’s get ready to luchador! Get it on Steam, GoG, or perhaps somewhere else.

Gold Edition includes challenge levels.

You play as Juan, simple agav...

Autumnal Waterfall 48 – Stuff Time

Now it is stuff time! A time where I just decide to type semi-randomly and see what comes out. The topic will be on games, of course.

Last year was the year when Playstation 4 and Xbox One came out. I have neither of them. I also don’t own a Wii U. That means I have not played any of the new stuff that came out. Well, that’s fine, I suppose. Better games will come out later for the PS4 and Xbone, and I could possibly get them then.

I will say that I do really like my original PS3. Sure, it has less capacity than newer versions, but it also has full backwards compatability. That alone makes me like it more than newer versions.

I think my buying mentality has really been changed by Steam and Youtube...
