    It was originally only on PS3, IIRC - I don't think it was billed as an exclusive of any sort, but it took a while to come to PC.

    EDIT: Yup, Wiki says it came with the PS3 release in April 2013,...

    Never understood that one. Stupid visual design (spikes for some reason!) and cheap scare with artificial difficulty =/= scary, in my book. The Rasklapanje from Resi 6 is infinitely more frightening...

    Ouch. I mean, it's just one guy's opinion but that does seem depressingly plausible - I also felt the cubes seemed worryingly at odds with the tone of everything else and hoped they wouldn't play too...

    Yeah, I'm looking at "there's something wrong with your hard drive", personally. I had no significant problems with my ancient 1TB HDD - must be easily ten years old or more and badly needs...

    Jesus, while I suspect my musical tastes are somewhat different to yours, that's still cringeworthy. It's like the dreams of some clueless marketing department given form.

    Haha, it's really not that big a deal. Cave's iOS ports are the games that really popularised "relative touch" as a thing for shmups on phones/tablets, where you don't have a virtual pad or anything...

    Indeed. Oh, well, I have the iOS version too, so I shouldn't be missing out, hopefully.

    Further adventures in revisiting PS2 games - oh Jesus I'd forgotten just how good SSX 3 is. Twelve years old and it's still god damned mindblowing, for the all the muddy textures and low polygon...

    Oh, the delay was for mobile only? Huh. I didn't take that in. In which case I guess I'll probably be getting both versions. Both Epoch. games were great little tap-and-swipe shooters with some...

    Unused parts of the case. Ho, ho, ho, my sides! Sigh. (Lots of wires, not enough space to re-rout them all, PSU being at the bottom, now, rather than the top means I can't re-rout some of them.) No,...

    Jesus, the art quality in Rokka took a dive for the second episode, but it's still pretty good, dumb fanservice aside. Actual character development! Nuance! Neither of which rely on stupid...

    As I said in one of the other threads, I cannot do it: for me, in the context of this particular gameworld, it's simply wrong. End of discussion. But I have read FAQs and looked at YouTube videos and...

    I own the game on Steam as well, but I finished it on iOS and it's been a while since I played it. Not sure if your spoiler is necessary? It was a separate app on iOS, nothing hidden about it at all....

    Outland lacks any kind of a story when the fantastic art design is crying out for one, but it's still a pretty cool game. Never did finish it - I quit at the final boss because it has like six forms...

    I hugely admired Simogo at one point, and really liked Year Walk when I got it on iOS, but lately I've fallen somewhat out of love with them. The puzzles in Device 6 struck me as so infuriatingly...
