A Hat in Time is out!

It looks absolutely fantastic, like an perfectly polished cross between Mario Sunshine and LOZ Wind Waker,
I'm picking it up on Steam tomorrow if I have any money to spare.

There were also talks about a WiiU version apparently, but I don't know if that will lead to a Switch version or not.

I can't say I recall hearing about this before this week, so I give the developers mad props for not senselessly piling on the hype.

I gave him a minute and a half before I got tired of staring at his face.

The Steam trailer brings to mind Psychonauts more than anything else.  That was a ... flawed game.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I'm downloading it right now, it'l probably be finished sometime tonight, I think there's a cloud parked in front of my beam today or something.

The good news is I checked up on the specs and it looks like my laptop is going to be able to handle it just fine, so that's a relief

And yeah I agree about Psychonauts, I love the characters and story so freaking much, but thanks to how ambitious it was it ended up with gameplay issues that get more evident as you go on.


I've got about 3 hours in AHIT now, it's really good but does have some issues, for one the controls are a bit imprecise and it leads to missing platforms, objects and ladders, but that could just be that it wasn't optimized for PS4 input, secondly it has a boatload of collision problems, namely getting snagged on ceilings and sometimes being able to stand where you shouldn't, the camera also fucks up from time to time in tight spaces but never in any areas where it'l get you killed.

Aside from those though it's pretty sweet, levels are fairly large and open without being empty and it's always throwing things at you to do, collectibles net you rewards in the form of cosmetic stuff, new levels, remixed music, and new quality of life stuff in the form of badges, VO's are all over the top which i'm fine with, but if you want them off there's a badge that reverts everybody to mumbles.
