Renaming your system or mechanic without it being functionally different always bugs me about some games, especially with the thousand terms for what is just the "MP bar". No expectations from Knack but I enjoyed the first Dig and if the price is right I'll jump in the second. Any word on the quality of how Dig 2 is designed? Dig 1 was pseudo random if I recall and Dig 2 seems to be intentionally designed so I was curious.

KNACK 2 BAYBEEEE

Biggest laugh for me was the "Most Illogical" sign above Spock's crotch.

Summer is nearly over?
The Autumn Equinox was September 22nd.
And no Daylight Savings time doesn't mark the first day of Spring & Fall.

Also was anyone expecting Knack 2 to be good?
....
I mean it can't be worse than a Sonic game.

Honestly, he should have used the Hellraiser box rather than a Rubik's Cube.

Please don't associate Hellraiser with knack 2, a Rubik's cube is more apt, due to it being a piece of throw away plastic rubbish, given to little goits a stocking filler to shut em up.

Well, the fact that Knack II exists does have me lamenting a little.

I'm loving Steamworld Dig 2, I just got the rocket pack and am sad that its nearly over. I really like the Steamworld universe, Heist feels like Firefly Xcom.

To put the experiences of these games into song form:

Steamworld Dig 2 - "And she's by... the Stairway... to Heaven"

Knack 2 - "All in all it's just a-nother brick in the wall."

I don't remember Diggers, but The Lost Dutchman's Mine was pretty good.

Yes, I do remember Diggers (albeit on PC)! That is my benchmark for mining games and I think you've just sold Steamworld Dig 2 to me.

No thanks. I'll just play Minecraft.

I hadn't laughed quite this much with ZP video in a while, nice one. :)

A between meal knack?

What's wrong with BBC 3?
