Hades [Switch/PC]

If it's not on Xbox then you're a bad boy... but so are we.

Hades [Switch/PC]

Post by Born2beSlicker »

Hades is very likely going to be a top contender for GOTY for many publications and with good reason.
Metacritic.

It’s an isometric, hack and slash rogue-like set in the depths of hell. Unlike every other rogue-like however, death is not a punishment. Yes, your run ends and you lose your money. However, you gain more story, character interaction and you can buy permanent upgrades to make the next run that little bit better.

It’s by SuperGiant Games (Bastion, Transistor, Pyre) and it’s utterly incredible. There’s also a long running NoClip documentary series about how it went from easy access to full launch and how the pandemic impacted development.

If you haven’t tried it, do check it out, if you are playing it, how far did you get? So far I’ve made it to the third level, Elysium.

Looks awesome, but going to wait for the port. Being Supergiant I can't imagine they won't do one sooner or later.

Maybe to PS4/5 but they haven’t been on Xbox in years.

It's a quality game that I put a fair amount of time into when it first hit in preview on Epic.

Gonna wait for an Xbox port before I pick it up again though.

I’m still very sceptical that there would be an Xbox port. They’ve shown no interest in Xbox in years.

It was the language in the last episode of the NoClip documentary that gave me hope. Re-building the code platform from the ground up to make it easier to port, makes me think that isn't just for the Nintendo Switch.

Yeah, I’d see them putting it on PS4/5 and iOS before Xbox but I’d like to be wrong.

It's brilliant and I say that as someone who doesn't necessarily like rouge like games. Bastion and Transistor are brilliant and although Pyre was good it felt like a bit of a misstep for me. This is definitely a return to form

This game is soooo good! It's Super Giant's best game by far. The way it integrates story with the rouge like mechanics is ingenious. I'd urge people not to sleep on this. As Slicker says. They've not put a game on Xbox since 2011.
