This is on my ‘get eventually’ plan, but I’m still doing Hollow Knight at the moment.

Oh man. Lost Odyssey. 😭 That game deserved a damn sequel!

As someone who loves Shovel Knight but hated Plague Knight's movement system; you will enjoy Spectre of Torment. It is better then Shovel of Hope so far!

100% with you on Plague Knight, feels so weird controlling his jumps with holds... I have Shovel Knight on PS4 but will probably buy it on Switch for the comfort :P

Lost Odyssey, its not THAT bad right?

I to loved shovel knight and detested Plauge knights storyline because of his controls and can attest that Specter knight controls much better and is just freaking awesome. I enjoyed it more than the main story if im being honest. would love to see a jimpression on it and hear your opinion on the matter

I want to like the switch I want to buy the switch but I just can't because I can't trust Nintendo. I'm hearing about issues with it and I know they're going to release a new iteration between now and the 2-year anniversary of its launch and I just can't see myself putting money into it until then.

I think it bears a mention with how wonderfully Yacht games have carried themselves. They did exactly what they set out to do and have done well for themselves where pecuniary matters are concerned via an honorable, fair business stratagem.

Kinda died inside when he said the last good JRPG was Lost Odyssey since I'm a fan of the Persona series and a lot of JRPG's in general but I do get there not for everyone.

Looking forward to the King Knight stuff, which looks like it has a whole new fucking map to it. They've gone all out on the DLC, which was free if you already owned the game.

Don't care not buying a switch.

Lost Odyssey was really quite the ride. So much good work with the characters. I cared about every last one.

hollow knight blows shovel knight away. and it's only 15 bucks for like 50 hours of content, including all the dlc

So Jim is romantically in love with Plague Knight? Boy, is his heart gonna be broken if he ever decides to complete Plague of Shadows.

I think a big reason why this works better as a mobile game is the graphic styling, and partially gameplay style. During the N64 era of games, consoles started becoming more of 3D gameplay and environments, where mobile games were 2D sidescrollers with hardware limited graphics. I know the GBA era had some '3D' using isometric projection, but it wasn't the same as an actual 3D console game. But if you updated the graphic styling of these style of games to something modern, added more depth to the environment and background, I think opinions would change, as the nostalgia for classic mobiles would lower. Though it's hard to remove the nostalgia factor from gameplay style, since there's not much you can do to innovate past what's been done, unlike what graphics innovation has done.

Specter Knight is even better. I loved Plague Knight - his floating changes everything.
Ckff71up (9 days ago)
I believe Specter Knights campaign shits all over Shovel Knight's. Just my opinion. The levels/music and gameplay design were just a lot more fun.
Diomedes KYROU (9 days ago)
If you think Shovel Knight is good wait till you play Specter Knight
MrrQuackers (9 days ago)
Please do both. I've never played any Shovel Knight.
Oni Neko (9 days ago)
You're right the platform can make a huge difference - Shovel Knight on the Wii U was probably the best version of the game I've ever played. A friend and I made the Plague Knight campaign into a co-op experience. I held the touchscreen controller and mixed bombs for him while he used the Pro controller to handle all the platforming. It was an incredibly unique way to play, and I really enjoyed the sort of asynchronous co-op we got out of it. Give it a go if you haven't had the pleasure!

My heart skipped a beat when Jim said that a lot of jrpgs tend to be shit and Lost Odyssey theme hit! D: Fortunately that was a false alarm. Phew!

And we once again praise a game, cherry picked for switch, which wouldn't exist without evil steam. While 2 videos further down we claim there is only shit on Steam.

I got it for my Switch and I just don't like it as much as everybody else. It's nicely polished but I just don't find it anything special. Good soundtrack, though.
MindinViolet (10 days ago)
I prefer to play games in 5D on my 12K screen.
Jynirax (10 days ago)
I don't think a game has ever over delivered on the level Shovel Knight has for me personally. I kickstarted it way back when and I feel like I've been given 3 (soon to be 4) complete games. So many dev's and publishers should take lessons from what was done with Shovel Knight and how to establish a fantastic reputation with consumers. This is how games should be done.
Legendary Hero (10 days ago)
I am with you in that I didn't enjoy Plague Knight's quest as much. Specter Knight's quest has a great story and is all in all just a more original game on top of the fact that he is a complete joy to play as. Really contextualizes a lot of characters and gives backstory where there was none. I think you will like it a lot!
kenshokram (11 days ago)
Idk if you tried the demo, but if you didn't enjoy jrpgs ever since Lost Odyssey (I might think the same) Octopath is not going to be your thing either... The writing is awful and the voice acting is worse. The visuals only work in specific circumstances and you end up just detached from all the low res faces.
BowlUndrFire (11 days ago)
Most released games of all time: 1. Skyrim 2. Doom 3. Street Fighter 4. Shovel Knight I know it's a great game and indie and all but is anyone else starting to feel this.
Ian Chamberlin (11 days ago)
I'm with you, unfortunately I couldn't really get into Plague Knight...but oooooh wow Spectre Knight is fantastic. I had so much fun playing that one.

Warframe coming to Switch
"Shovel Knight" is a goddamn MASTERPIECE no matter WHAT console you're playing it on. As for "Plague Of Shadows," there IS a bit of a learning-curve... but the trick with Plague Knight is that he's a nimble little trickster whose arsenal of bombs and "Arcana" gadgets can be customized to suit your individual play-style. "Experimentation" is the name of the game with Plague Knight. As for "Specter Of Torment..." Well, imagine if you played "Ninja Gaiden" as the "Castlevania" version of Death. That's "Specter Of Torment" in a nutshell. "King Of Cards?" ...I'll let ya know when that one drops later this year.

Of course you're gonna like it better on the switch than the 3ds, the switch is much much more powerful You'd have liked the pc or ps4 version just as much. Jeez.

Having notifications on for this channel is pretty annoying. Not because of the content. I love the content. More because things get uploaded and then removed frequently. It may not be constant, but it's frequent enough to notice.

So, the last video got taken down while I was half way through watching it, talking about how the AAA gaming industry is going to exploit Fortnight’s new business model, PUBG in particular. What happened?
Dave Brohman (11 days ago)
I remember playing the original Legend of Zelda on the NES and how immensely satisfying it was to do that same weapon-down bounce on an enemy.
carl witt (11 days ago)
Jim... check out a game called "The Curious Expedition". I started playing about a week ago, and ended up recruiting a guy named "Jim Sterling", who said "Thank God for me" when he came on board.
Terreos (11 days ago)
I'm suprised so many people don't like Plague Knight? I loved it more than Shovel Knight. I thought the mechanics were so much more fun. Yes it was more challenging, but I thought shovel knight's campaign was a push over. So maybe that why I enjoyed it more?
Xenin7 (11 days ago)
Good vid Jim, the game looks fun. But on another topic, I was wondering if you have seen what has been happening with Guild Wars 2 and the firing of the arrogant bitch Jessica Price? and also how the Gaming media has been arrogantly and stupidly taking her side.
DLAlucard (11 days ago)
Hey Jim, have you checked out this new game on PS4 called The Unknown City [Horror Begins Now.....Episode 1]? It looks slightly more competent then Life of Black Tiger in its trailer. Though it feels like a game you should look into.
Mole Knight (11 days ago)
Specter Knight's campaign is just excellent. Platforming's super tight, the story is great, the bosses are even cooler and EVERY SINGLE SONG for every stage has been remixed and it's just.... MAGICAL
FallenShogun Gaming (11 days ago)
Sounds like the switch is getting some really well done ports. Making it more of a must buy for travelling

Already finish it on vita years ago, vita d-pad is way better than 3ds. And playing on oled screen is nice.

I can see the argument for Lost Odyssey, and I really like JRPGs and have played many good/great ones in the past couple of years.

I hated this game on PC because of the controls. I’ve felt like it would be much better on handheld platforms, so I’m pretty happy about this game’s release on Switch

Shovel Knight is one of my favourite games ever, there I said it. It's 2D perfection.
almostideal (11 days ago)
I've only ever playerd ShovelKnight on 3DS, not sure it was the best way to play it but goddamn, I love it
GroundPoundable (11 days ago)
Jim, if you haven't played Specter of Torment... Hoo, boy. If you thought Shovel Knight was good, Specter Knight's campaign will very likely skyrocket the experience for you.
GroundPoundable (4 days ago)
Well, for me, Specter of Torment was superior because of the added depth to Specter Knight. Shovel Knight's campaign was nice and simple, a perfect callback to days of old. However, I like how Specter Knight's story not only delves into his character and humanizes him more, but it also serves as a prequel to the events to come and give him proper motivation to do what he does besides "Mwa ha ha, I work for the bad guy!" Beyond that, I think Specter Knight is not just the better story, but also the better game. Specter Knight's movement and mechanics are far more fun than Shovel Knight's and his Curios saw a lot more use from me personally. The wall cling and run was great and made him feel like a better version of Ryu Hayabusa mixed with Strider Hiryu and the Slash n Dash mechanic not only made for some fun level design, but fluid and awesome movement. And the remixed stage music was waaaay better.
SirBlackjack010 (4 days ago)
RIGHT. See, I can do that too. The normal Shovel Knight is better because the story wasn't so convoluted. It made me care about the characters, even the campaign with Plague Knight was adorable. But in Spectre of Torment they shoved in 2 side characters somehow related to the main one and didn't do much to make me care about them, despite being confusing about their relation. That might not be important for you, but for me that makes it the inferior game.
parappa The Rapper (4 days ago)
SirBlackjack010 WRONG
GroundPoundable (9 days ago)

Actually, Spectre Knight's campaign is not superior to the original shovel knight.

did jim love the wiiu also?
McKay Oustrich (11 days ago)
Specter of torment is absolutely amazing. One of the best games i have ever played. I personally think its better than the shovel knight quest. You owe it to yourself to play specter knight’s quest. The levels just get better as you go along
Ixcaliber (11 days ago)
On the topic of Plague Knight. That control scheme takes some getting used to but I found it to be pretty worth the effort to get to play a plague mask character.

What's that at the end? Something about a meat bone?
Gypsy Squid (12 days ago)
I understand that sentiment. Duting middle school and high school, I hated FPS games for their gameplay and missed out on a lot of fun titles for it, but after I was able to afford a PC and learned about turning off mouse acceleration they're now my most played game type. Now if only they'd port these older console titles like the original Halo and Gears' series...

Woah... Another person actually played Lost Odyssey? I loved that game but could never find anybody who even knew it existed.

Specter Knight is amazing and I highly recommend it. It feels like they created a new game just for it.
OnePieceOBleach (12 days ago)
I didn’t really like Plauge Knights movement at first either Jim but I stuck with it and really loved it by the end. Each of the campaigns really do feel different and the characters have extremely unique abilities and upgrades, it’s all so good.
ScytheRider (12 days ago)
Plague Knight gives everybody an awful first impression because of his controls. But by the time I collected some of his powerups and got to act III, I realized that I loved him more than Shovel Knight. You can pull off so many skillful moves with him, and practically fly over half the level if you get a handle on his midair jumps, it feels so satisfying. His playstyle is chaotic, but if you get a handle on the chaos, you're incredibly powerful. It suits his character.
Danny Mexen (12 days ago)
I agree, RPGs on handhelds feel better. Especially Japanese RPGs.
Jammill Khursheed (12 days ago)
Didn't I hear somewhere its $30 on Switch and $10 on Steam... Is it worth 3x the amount of money JUST to play it on a smaller screen?

Its looks like another paycheck from Nintendo just came... Jim, it is time to change your nickname to something more relevant, like: Jim Nintendo Paid Shill; or Jim GameExplain Sterling. It would fit you more mr who is fooling its subscribers for money.

I'm kind of with you on Plague Knight. I played through it, completed it, it's fun, but the least enjoyable of the 3. Specter Knight was much more enjoyable to me than Shovel Knight. It had a far more interesting story and its mechanics were just more enjoyable to me.
