Kingdom: Two Crowns (Switch) – finished
A few days ago a friend of mine came over for board games. We played for 1.5hrs and then for 5-6 hours switched to video games. Most of that time was spent on Kingdom: Two Crowns couch co-op. It was wonderful! It’s so much better to play with someone else to help cover ground on the bigger islands.
The experience reignited my desire to continue my solo campaign and i managed to reach the credits. I had some bad moments with the game (beggars not spawning, having only 1 knight on one side and a few more). Also there are still things that are almost impossible to know unless you read about them online. My one regret is not being able to fully upgrade my towers.
At the end of the day however it was a very enjoyable experience. It has the Civ quality of just one more turn/day. There are a lot things i have not yet seen but i am probably done after 45+hrs. I would play it again co-op so there’s still that option. Suggest
SteamWorld Heist (Switch) – currently playing
I had started this on the Vita a few years ago but stopped playing after a few hours. I don’t remember why but it had nothing to do with the quality of the game because it’s good!
Although i like the Steamworld Universe i can’t say that the story is any good. However, most of the characters you recruit are with some good lines. More importantly they are good in combat and feel different. Unless they are taken to battle (and survive) they don’t get XPs and it encourages me to try playing with all of them. Some i like more than others. For example Piper, the captain, is one of my favourites because she affects units around her. Ivanski is tank with a rocket. I also like Beatrix and Valentine. I just recruited Fen and she/he has fantastic abilities. Like i said they are all good!
I’m trying to get 3 stars on all missions and i managed to do that for all so far (apart from 1). Repeating a level is not a chore as the level changes layout every time. So far there has not really been a need to repeat levels just for grinding purposes. Simply for getting the three stars.
Finally, the loot surprises after each battle are exciting. New weapons and gadgets. Plus the new abilities of characters after they level up.
This looks like another wonderful game is the brilliant Steamworld series.
