Hey something I forgot to post about here...

You may recall Tom Cruise was in a really bad remake of The Mummy this last year.   Well turns out at least one good thing came out of that.  See they tried to do a game tie in, but for some reason rather than do like a crappy 3D action game, they hired Wayforward (developers of Shantae) to make a ... get this ... a Metroidvania.  I've heard from multiple sources a good Metroidvania at that.

Now I'm not sure where this stacks up against say Hollow Knight, AM2R, or Metroid: Samus Returns, but if you're hungry for that kind of game right now with a 16-bit/32-bit 2d pixel art and chiptunes type presentation from a proven developer in that space, maybe check it out!  It's on Steam, PS4, AND Switch!!  (I'm actually kinda kicking myself for forgetting about it for the Winter Sale...)

Attached below is a trailer and 13min of the Game Grumps playing it back from November.

Huh, even when I saw Game Grumps uploaded it I dismissed it cause I figured it was a shitty movie tie in game (thought enforced by them not doing more than one video which tends to mean a crappy game one off) so I didn't watch it. This actually looks pretty good, I'm always a fan of Metroidvania style games.

I think I saw this one on steam and maybe watched the Game grunts mainly because I like the idea of a demastered video game.

It's almost disconcerting seeing a Metroidvania game with the dude from Contra.  It is however super cool that you're just a dude.  Like, just a guy who is a soldier.  I guess he'll end up being the special-est, most magical snowflake but after watching a one minute trailer I'm hoping that when you die you're just replaced for nameless grunt #742.

Actually I find that to be a really awesome mechanic. You're just random soldier 334 and when 334 dies he becomes a zombie that 335 must now kill. Love that to bits!
