Like many of you, I saw Darkest Dungeon be played at various sites for their coverage and thought it looked cool. I like RPGs a lot. I like roguelikes… a little bit – we’ve all seen examples of how procgen can go either right or wrong. I like Gothic/Cosmic Horror A LOT as a genre. It seemed up my alley, but I never really got interested in picking the game up.
Then I saw a video of it running of the Switch. And friends, I hunger for this game now the way eldritch creatures hunger for flesh or sanity or whatever else they want. I desire it. I need it.
I thought that was a little weird. I have enough games for the Switch that I’m not wanting just any game that comes out. I guess the confluence of me liking all the threads Darkest Dungeon pulls on normally coupled with the portability of the Switch was finally enough to tip me over the edge.
Still… Has anyone ever experienced this type of thing before? (And if anyone has information on when DD might be coming out…)
