I have like 5 games on the Switch haven't finished a single one of them, there's DLCs out the butt and I'm buying Odyssey. Nintendo stop!

I think I'm ready for my 14 hour (each way) flight. Zelda, Stardew, and Picross are fresh, and Golf Story, Rabbids, and Blaster Master still have some life in them.

Like, that's what you play open world games for? Getting to some fuckoff huge gate that has Exactly One Way to pass it and the path stopping cold right there until you go fetch it?

Maybe that is why I play them, but I dunno of any with that feature and most open world games are disjointed garbage so I don't play them very often

I bought Witcher 3 and I want to start it but there's no goddamn way I can play through it before Mario comes out. Trying to rush through Witcher seems like it'd gently caress up the experience of an extremely good game.

The first time I watched Arrow I was confused at the lack of an overly long intro. It was basically "I'm Oliver Queen, I was shipwrecked and it sucked."

Now it's just "I'm Oliver Queen, I and my show suck."

XyrlocShammypants posted:

They went minimalist everything as a consequence of hardware limitations. Texture, music, dungeons, voice acting, probably everything was brilliantly reduced to a great game big still reduced nonetheless. Hard to say if they didnít have ambitions they couldnít meet or not but my guess it absolutely

It perfectly explains why shrines are so samey or many elements of traditional rpgs absent.

Please cite some sources on this because it sounds like bullshit that you're just guessing at.

Ehh I don't know if this helps but I've been working through Witcher 3 for over 12 months now, in spurts of 15-20 hours randonmly strewn thoroughout a week.

It's probably not the most optimal way to play it but I'm still having a blast, kinda like reading a long-rear end fantasy novel over months. The combat is nothing to write home about so while it's engagng enough, I don't care that I pop in and out of the gameplay for months at a time.

Playing through it straight might make me resent it a little actually, now that I think about it. As of right now I still love it and plan to get the DLC's once I get to that part of the story.

Music files don't take up enough space that you'd have to go for minimalist soundtrack in a modern game. That's just loving ridiculous, and it also makes no sense given that BotW does have full orchestral pieces anyways. It just has minimalist tracks in addition to that for, you know, atmosphere.

Thank goodness. The trailers alone were making DQ Heroes' dubbing efforts look positively Shakespearean.

The thought of a Warriors game with good dub voice acting is foreign to me. Please explain.

The reasons for the minimalistic music in Breath of the Wild were certainly artistic and not a result of technical inability. Music in video games has not been meaningfully technically constrained for years.

Mah boys!

Completed Golf Story last night! A good lil game, maybe a little samey (there's only so much you can do with golf) but was really fun and had a lot of charm. Not exactly difficult but enjoyed my time with it. Probably took around 16 hours or so.

BOTW's soundtrack was originally going to be nonstop 80 decibel marching band music but it had to be cut due to the Switch is bad.

The "girl with a huge hammer" trope has existed in Japanese anime and manga since at least the eighties, and probably predates even the Atari.

DW3e was the first, and last DW game I've ever purchased, though DQ Heroes 2 looks tempting.

Pulled the trigger on Mario x Rabbids and turns out that it is actually a lot of fun. Calling it "XCOM-lite" wouldn't be completely inaccurate but the systems that are there are polished and the presentation is generally pretty great.

BotW's music is really good. Hateno village is my favorite town theme in the entire zelda series and same with Vah Ruta for dungeon theme. people who dont like it because they wanted to listen to the zelda theme blaring in the overworld for 100 hours are insane.

I love the limited score parts of Death Mountain get. I also enjoyed the themes embedded in the riding music.

The cool thing about long rear end flights nowadays is that everyone has an outlet near their seat and the chair in front of you is also a tablet holder so you can detach the joycons and play super leisurely. The Switch makes airplane rides pretty rad now
