No matter what the new paper mario turns out like I will say it's battle theme is fun.

Also I think it looks cool, though I wish the Bob-Omb ally looked a bit more unique. Would love if they brought back some of the unique looking NPCs and partners back. Still it for sure looks like a good step.

That looks kinda really busted tbh, there's a difference between funny and completely broken and this game looks completely broken lol They should delay the game for a few more months. There's alot of good parts to it but the outdoor segments should absolutely be better optimized than this.

but I'm loving the dialogue and your sidekick character is very cool. Also the earnestness of York in the Voodoo shop made me laugh so I think alot of this is intentional but honestly they really need to polish out the outdoors a little because there's a fine line between funny-busted and straight out busted and they need to make sure it doesnt come across as just busted. The entire vodoo shop sequence made me laugh pretty hard though lol.

Yeah, it was the outside segments that killed me. It looks like one of those cheap Steam games that Jim Sterling would make fun of. Everything else seems fine though.

I've beaten Ys 8. It was enjoyable and a fun action rpg. I would advise not getting it on Switch if you can, but the switch port is perfectly playable. It has a few performance issues that the other versions don't have. I liked the game enough to pretty much do everything in it.

I don't have a PS4 or anything, so Switch is all I can get. Plus, I can bring the Switch with me up to the office to play during downtime.

Glad to hear people still reflecting fondly on Ys VIII even after a couple years.

I hope they decide to port Tales of Berseria to Switch eventually. I loves me my action RPGs and Trials of Mana left me a little cold.

Graphics vs Art Direction is one of the best stupid arguments in all of gaming.

A game with good art direction will look good forever.

A PS2 game with cutting edge realistic graphics is probably unplayable for many gamers in 2020.

they were at the time though to be fair.

Funnily enough there's this new trend where indie games make use of low-poly graphics to make some visually stunning stuff see for example:-

There's also a thread in the Mart forums where goons are helping find switches. I see some at Target now and then, but I haven't the funds to up and start buying any to help out. A lot of the resellers have been using some bot or another.

I think the market is gonna pop on them soon with the news of restocks coming in. They're being listed for $480 CAD in Toronto on Kijiji, which is only $30 more than MSRP + tax here. That is approaching "Not worth the time" territory (hopefully).

some of the early 3d stuff still holds up too, like i still think MGS1 and Gran Turismo look cool as hell given the PS1 "look"

also that era had the best music in history. the perfect era of "oh we can do CD music now" so they just throw as much 90s electronic on there as possible

From the PS1 area, for me there's Vagrant Story and then there's everything else. They completely embrace the low poly count and insufficient texture memory and did amazing things with it that I haven't seen since.

Even back then no one other than marketing considered the PS2 to be "realistic"

But the point is moot, did you guys know they make games with good creative artstyles AND powerful graphics that can't be replicated on the switch? It's been this way for about a decade now, it's pretty cool. This supposed conflict between good graphics and good style hasn't been a thing since schoolyard console war days. You have to actively choose to play ugly games with how much content there is to choose from (which is fine too if you enjoy them)

Nintendo has an excellent sense of style yes but they aren't the only ones with professional artists on the payroll!

But they made the overworld full of dusty brown clouds, so all the travel time you spend is spent in this shapeless formless dusty blank space, unlike the fields or ocean of Hyrule.

After being dumb and refreshing bookmarked pages for a week I decided to make an account at two stock sites, Zoolert and NowInStock. I didn't get any alerts yesterday, but today both of them went off around the same time telling me Amazon had the neon console in stock. I managed to get it pretty easily. Based on the tracker, it looks like they have been coming in stock and selling out within 15-20 minutes at Amazon and Walmart, so unless you use an alert system you will probably miss out.

(Canadian Amazon and Walmart, though you can set the alerts up for the US sites as well)
