Our Vita videos of Guacamelee

We keep repeating it but Vita owners really don't have much to sink their teeth into, so when a game as entertaining as Guacamelee! comes out, it is time to go for it and enjoy the moment. Sure, it's not a Vita exclusive as it is also available on PS3, but it's a cross-buy title, another reason not to hesitate. If you have always loved Metroid-like games which put you to the test, if you have always been fond of crazy - Mexican - universes, this is just what you need. Instead of showing you the first few minutes of the game, which you can see for yourself by downloading the demo anyway, we've decided to show you a few extracts taken a bit later on in the story. We hope you'll enjoy them, because we have enjoyed capturing them for you guys.

Finished it just yesterday (PS3 version). It's brilliant - no less. A must have for Vita owners. Platforming made me ^______^ The best thing about it IMO is the worlds switching - a real candy to the eye. Not to mention all those easter eggs.

Eh i liked the combat the most and dialogue funny at times. Nice visuals too. Overall, its a nice game. Some of the platforming was borderline unnecessary in spots. I need to beat the game on hard mode and then wait the dlc begins.

It's a great game but man is it challenging. It's one of the hardest games I've played in a long while.

Haven't tried hard mode but it really isn't that hard. But still that doesn't detract from its quality, it is really up there in terms of visual design and overall gameplay. Extremely fun title and good use of easter eggs.

platforming can get quite frustrating. but once i realised speed was not required (since you can permenently latch onto walls) most of it was pretty simple.

first run through wasn't that bad but try playing it on hard mode then come back and tell me what you think. a lot of button mashing. -_-

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (13 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (23 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (34 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Surely you can spot the differences. (38 minutes ago)
