Oi, Xboners - two great games released today

Post  Ackter on Thu Apr 30, 2015 2:41 pm

It's a shame they're both old games from other platforms, but don't let that put you off the absolute retro goodness that's coming out today.

Project Root



Finally, my favourite game type comes to the Xbone \o/

Have always loved games like this, used to play them in the arcades and had loads of them on the Atari, Commodore, Spectrum etc etc etc

and, of course, we finally get...

Shovel Knight



Go. Buy them now. Play them in all their awesomeness. NOW

Project Root really caught my eye yesterday, I was always a fan of old school shooters. I am tempted however they're not known for longevity of gameplay.

Like, really shit.

There's no connection to the game at all, you feel completely detached from it, and the camera angle is terrible.

Triple posting is the future

Cool

Project Root is seriously bad, though. It's like an iPad game ported over.
