Celeste is (I think) one of the first games of this type to feature some pretty innovative difficulty variability. In this case, I hear it has some optional assist functions which make everything far smoother than you'd probably expect from how it looks and the "difficult" tag on the Steam store.

Despite appearances, it's probably way closer to something like Braid (or even Guacamelee?) than Super Meat Boy or Iconoclast, another early 2018 release of note. I definitely don't get the impression that it's going to attract a horde of grognards yelling "git gud" at anyone who isn't 100% optimal at it - one of the raisins I have zero interest in Cuphead.

My hole was almost closed, too, but now I've spread it back open / I could even be comfortable bareback!

Hmm. That sounds better. I might have to look into it more. Granted, some of Guacamelee is a bit hard, too, but not too much so. Except for that one part...

I haven't played Braid, even though it looks interesting. I've already had the story spoiled, so I likely won't. The downside of a low budget, I'm afraid. Or, in that game's case, me not playing PC games at the time.

Anthem was delayed, but a couple other things on my 2018 watchlist are looking pretty damn good. Monster Hunter World is probably the first Monster Hunter that looks anything remotely like something I'd wanna play, and Sea of Thieves could be a crazy fun time with the right squad. (Squad.)

One of the older Civ guys is doing something potentially pretty cool with Starbreeze called 10 Crowns.

The concept art makes it look how I wish Civ VI looked: city center and city district tiles melding together to form a more contiguous piece.

If they can pull off that art style it's going to be one hella sexy game.

Cities Skylines is free on Steam at the moment, perhaps one of you geniuses could tell me how I'm supposed to actually play it.

I don't exactly know the best way to play it, your first city for sure should just be haphazardly throwing districts down around the place, and figuring out stuff like the wind map for placing turbines and the land quality for farming.

Those basic parts of the game are fun and rewarding, where the trouble comes though is distributing services, managing traffic flow, setting bus routes, and making your city beautiful :pac

It's for sure a good podcast game though, most of your time is waiting for the money for your next development, planning the next district you're going to add, or trying weird (and typically bad) solutions to your traffic problems, such as this road cutting through the middle of my roundabout:

Outta nowhere SWERY has announced a new game with ArcSys called The Missing, due out this year.

He's also taking another shot at crowdfunding his cat RPG, The Good Life, on Kickstarter instead of Fig, sometime in March.
