Quick Thoughts: Song of the Deep

Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to experience an upcoming title, Song of the Deep. Not seeing much of the game other than sales promotions, I wasn't sure what to expect. I have now pre-ordered it. The game is a 2D side-scroller in a Metroidvania style. The story has players take control of Merryn, a 12 year old girl who is cared for by her father, a fisherman, who tells her many tall tales from his travels and adventures. One day, her father goes missing at see. In an attempt to save him, Merryn creates a submarine and sets out on her own adventure. I spent roughly 30 minutes on the game and I enjoyed every moment of it. A great art style and intriguing puzzles captivated me instantly. I highly recommend, especially with an entry price of just $15 for a new physical copy (limited run), it's hard to go wrong.

200,000 Gamerscore Achieved - July 4th 2016

Yesterday was a good day. The weather was crappy and rainy all day, it was a holiday, so a free day off, and it was just me and the kid. So I took the opportunity to hit a new goal. 200K Gamerscore. I had been floating with finishing this for some time, things just fell in place yesterday. If your interested, you can check out the full stream below (its kinda boring) or head to my Twitch channel and the moment I hit 200K is highlighted.
