    I watched Game Grumps play through this game, and they talked about it a lot. They kept saying how hard it was, even though Arin just blew through it. But now hearing you guys say how hard it is too, it makes me want to play it, because it really doesn't look that bad at all.

    I kinda want you guys to play Alpaca Evolution for mobile devices. I'm just thinking of ways to pain Ryan at this point.

    Is Ashley wearing the Auryn from The Neverending Story?

    For those wondering, the discussion on Long Live the Queen wasn't uploaded here for some reason. Look it up on YouTube.

    I'd love to see Ryan play 'Seduce Me the Otome'. That would be a laugh.
    Also, Akiba's Trip is a cool game if you're sick of visual novels.

    Throw Her Story into the mix please. It's new and it has a unique style of game play. Would be a fun one to see what you guys think about it. It's also cheap ;)

    You think Shovel Knight was sadistic? Play Wings of Vi, never have I seen such sidescrolling brutality

    To everyone suggesting they play Long Live the Queen, or asking what happened to it, it's already up on YouTube here - www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ1n8ORvEoE

    For some reason it's not up on the site, but hopefully that'll be rectified soon. :)

    Hm, I've actually been considering This War of Mine. Guess this'll be a good excuse to get it -- to actually "partake" in the Game Club. :)

    I'm still working on some of the final feats, but after a while, the game isn't too bad. The final few levels are ridiculous though.

    Beating the game wasn't too bad. New Game Plus was a bit of a challenge but the worst are a couple of the achievements. Beating the game in 1 1/2 hours of play time, beating the game without dying, and destroying every checkpoint (pretty much goes hand in hand with beating the game without dying) can burn slowly and painfully...

    Still LOVE that game though. Very well made and a great homage to the old classics.

    Been playing 100% Orange Juice recently. It's a fun little game that the Patch Crew might like. The campaign mode is difficult, but the general board-game gameplay is fun.

    sad thing I knew a few guys that r trying to get a rush run in under 40 minutes

    Man, I thought beating the game in under 2 hours was rough, but 45 minutes is insane. Glad you guys liked it though.

    I felt pretty much the same way you guys did. I love the game, but it can be infuriating at times. For me, it was Propeller Knight's stage that drove me up the wall. And for some reason, I decided to perfect it. I mean, I did it eventually, but that speed run challenge was rough. I had to quit the game every time I died to keep it from saving. Still, I'm glad you all liked it.

    You guys should really play Long Live The Queen. It's a short game so it's easy to get in to, but it's surprisingly hard and has a metric tonne of endings and paths so it has insane replayability value.

    Really enjoyed the title. I beat it a first time and felt perfectly satisfied about it. No need to mess with New Game+

    You guys should play "To the Moon", really great story based game.

    I beat Shovel Knight. I didn't think it was all that hard, and i sucked at those old mega man games.

    Shovel Knight is a great game! I loved playing it. Very frustrating at times but loved it. Funny thing, my little brother got so frustrated he cut his hand wide open playing this game. He went to punch the ground in anger and forgot he placed a glass there which ended up in blood and mayhem. Fun Game!

    I guess they're waiting for Ryan before they play along Live the Queen.
    And no! Sheet music is great, no one should curse at it.
