The ducks can be ferocious fighters, especially against the undead. There are many holy warriors of Humakt among them.

Weren't they supposed to have fixed that? I bought my switch sometime after they supposedly fixed the left joy con, but I have issues with it all the time

What I was experiencing was a limit of wireless technology than a switch problem. I can replicate the same kinda issues sticking a laptop and phone right next to each other. I'm talking a couple inches of space

my dj so bad

Does Stardew Valley end, or does it keep going indefinitely as an entertaining Harvest Moon-like farming game? I was going to wait for the Switch version if that was the case, but kinda just want to pick it up now for $9 in the Steam sale.

Fun Times! posted:

Ah cmon it looks nice.

it looks nice for about five minutes, but then every area looks exactly the same because that's what happens when your game's setting has one single environment type and no regional variation

i've talked about it a couple times in the steam thread before, but basically my complaints boil down to:

1) poorly-designed midgame bosses that only have one valid strategy to beat, so if you don't bring the right character, you'll die from attrition (e.g. one boss fully heals itself unless you can dispel its buff and only one character can dispel effects, and *dispel as in the item that teaches you the spell requires some rare materials to even make in the first place)

2) awful dungeon design. one stands out in particular where it asks you questions and if you give the wrong answer, it kicks you out and respawns all the monsters. aside from that, they're all pretty much the same and a number of them have "trap" routes that do nothing but send you further back towards the entrance to waste your time

other complaints, related to the "it looks nice" defense include:

3) it tries to make verbatim facsimiles of a lot of cool-looking effects from chrono trigger, but this translates really poorly to modern particle effects and everything just looks like weird transparent circles and crescents that last for a split second

4) related: everything in the game is a 3d model. because the models articulate smoothly, none of the attacks have any visual punch whatsoever--everyone swings their weapon clunkily, whereas in later snes rpgs, everything looked really impactful because you can do those kinds of visual tricks with sprites.

5) you know how timed attacks in super mario rpg are fun and add engagement to the game? ok so imagine that except it costs a resource that's basically an ff limit break in terms of how you build it up, except instead of an ultimate attack, you get the tiny boost you would expect from a timed attack. it doesn't even make your hit rate 100%

and lastly, only a half-complaint because the soundtrack is actually pretty good:

6) it's good but god drat just the one piano gets really boring after a while.

it goes on forever. you have a "review deadline," but it's fairly meaningless because you can just get rejudged later on.

I Am Setsuna was not great. Don't go into it thinking it's similar to some classic game you remember, because it's definitely not that. It's a below average RPG.

There are a lot of good opinions in this thread.

What about stealth following the Korok kid through the forest with no checkpoints?

You can sit as far back as you want on that quest and then just walk to the end if you know the route. Using a torch might work too but I didn't both trying since it only took a a couple tries.

I wonder if they haven't announced the Switch VC yet so they can sell SNES minis this holiday season.

Manufacturing time spent on not-Switch stuff means less Switches to sell, and Nintendo could just sell a SNES mini bundle on the eShop.

They used to call me tricky-kid, I lived the life they wish they did.

Brought Switch to a Pride party today and we had a blast playing MK8. My buddy also brought his so we were able to link.


Just like the commercials.

Whoever told you this lied to you. It is the most paint by numbers thing imaginable.

It isn't an SRPG; it tries very hard to be Chrono Trigger.

So instead of not buying it because of the combat I'm now not buying because of the story. Thanks for the clarification, goons.

No, FFX was interesting.
