Huh, I had no idea Banner Saga 2 was coming out already.  Will keep an eye on it...the original was a game that I so wanted to like, but it just never clicked for some reason.

I already have my code for Banner Saga from the Kickstarter.  Interested in StarFox but giving it a wait and see since early reception made it sound painfully short.

Wish I had waited and bought Axiom Verge on Vita instead of PC (since I haven't played it). Maybe I will double dip, maybe nothing.

Probably Star Fox.

If I hadn't already played through Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, I'd get that.  If you haven't played it, give it a look.  It's a pretty great 2D experience.  Nice graphics, fun characters, good story and tight action-platforming.

I just discovered that somewhere along the line, they added controller support for Banner Saga 1. Now I can enjoy it from my living room. It was one of my most anticipated titles upon release, but I never found the time to play it. And now I own the Steam and iOS versions.  retard

Looks like I'll be passing on Star Fox.

The reviews are so-so, but it's mostly the control scheme.  I didn't realize that you flew the ship with the sticks and using the pad's gyroscopic controls for the shooting, simultaneously.

Not only does that sound awkward, it sounds more so given that I need glasses for the pad and not for the TV.  Until I get progressives, this seems like an exercise in frustration.

I watched a streamer in Australia play (attempt to would be more accurate) the JPN copy and grew so frustrated with the scheme that he bailed after an hour.

I didn't realize this Star Fox was actually made by Platinum Games.  Those guys must have a bunch of teams at this point with as many different games they release.

Apparently Nintendo didn't learn anything from Lair.
