Frankly, I don't remember that much, mostly because that game was so "meh" for me that I forgot most of it. I recall that the interface was atrocious and being an indie studio is no excuse for making it so. Meaning: I don't care about mid-90s graphics, just make the UI usable without thousands of mouseclicks being necessary for e.g. inventory management.Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Bummer you didn’t like it though. What made it bad?

The story was OKish, the world has potential, but the plot of the game itself was handled haphazardly. Choices didn't matter that much (for the record, I did all the achievements so I know about different endings), free choice being the illusion most of the time. In that regard I still consider Fallout 1 and 2 to be a gold standard in balance between freedom of action and plot to be followed. I don't rag on Avadon not being the size of Fallout in scope, but not being Fallout-like in mechanics re: freedom of movement and plot/sidequests.
FWIW, I read on rpgcodex that Avadon is one of the weakest of Spiderweb's games, so maybe my resolution to never again touch them was premature. Yet at the same time I don't feel compelled to try anything else from him/them. If you can be arsed to recommend some specific titles you consider to be "the best of", I'd appreciate it.
I'd very much like to see an LP, don't know about a general interest in Spiderweb games though. We're kiwifarms, not rpgcodex after all and it looks like these games are kinda niche.If there is interest I might give LPing it a try so everyone can enjoy the story and make me choose stupid decisions and stuff.
Katana Zero is great, I hope they'll add more to the game soon.Katana Zero and Hotline Miami.
Not many people know of the Saga games on the GB, which were branded as "Final Fantasy Legend" in the west. The second one was the best IMO. They were remastered via E shop that has all three games.
I've yet to play the 360 sequel but I've always been a fan of the PS2 original, T&A aside it's a legit fun wrestling game.View attachment 2000537
Rumble Roses was overshadowed by the success of Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden, but the funny thing about this game is that it had a unique and diversified set of female characters with different fighting styles and costumes that brings back memories of Joshi Wrestling:
Rumble Roses XX actually made it more hilarious than interesting, and it’s pretty rare to buy and get it these days.
