Weekend Debate: Your favourite ‘hidden gem’ (Update)
UPDATE: Many thanks to all those who jumped in with a suggestion this week. Some great calls – and some surprising ones too. Without further ado, here are the winners of the PS Vita Dustforce codes: graybot, Alvena123, RedMustang72, Lcslick and Plumpegasus. Congratulations – keep an eye on your PMs in your ID on the official forums. We’ll be in touch later this week with your prize.
ORIGINAL POST: With the Christmas backlog still all but untouched, and a clutch of great new releases already in the wild for 2014, I’m not short of things to play right now. However, my latest gaming obsession is an unexpected find.
Off the back of some quiet Twitter buzz following its launch in May 2013, I downloaded Rymdkapsel onto my PS Vita when it showed up in a promotion late last year. And there it sat, unplayed, ever since. However, following a recent temper tantrum on my morning commute over a particularly tough OlliOlli stage, I booted it up for a quick look. 10 days later and I can’t put it down.
Never heard of it? It’s a wonderfully elegant and quirky strategy title that sees you trying to build a research station in deep space while being harassed by a mysterious (and relentless) foe. Check it out.
And that, rather clumsily, brings us onto this week’s debate topic. Do you have a favourite hidden obscurity that you love dearly but very few others might have come across? If so, let us know below and explain why we should all go and seek it out.
The prize for the five most thoughtful or entertaining responses? A PS Vita download code for Capcom’s acclaimed platformer Dustforce, which launched on PlayStation Store this week.
