    Ha, yes, I think that's the biggest part of it... Mario/Rabbids is turnbased but more about managing the field and finding/exploiting weak spots with the right characters than building up ultra-summonings or a zillion random encounters where all you do is select an action from a row of options. Grosly simplified of course
    I also loved the old star wars KOTOR games, and Mass Effect, so that kind of turn based I'm A-okay with!

    Same! I’ve got it downloaded so hopefully I will start this weekend. from the trailer it seems like it’ll be quite sizable. I’m curious how long it’ll play.

    RS2 is the best SFC-era RPG there is. Seriously. This is the best news of 2017 IMO.

    If you like simpicity and grid-map-based, look out for the new Fire Emblem that supposedly comes to Switch next year.

    Xenoblade I only bought because it is by Nintendo itself; I think the mechanics are overly complitacted early on in the game.

    I finally beat The Darker Side of the Moon last night after probably 50 tries. I immediately went back to see if I could do it again and well, practice makes perfect. It was SO hard at the start, though. I felt like throwing my controller quite a few times.

    ^Yassss.



    I really have to give BotW a ton of credit for single-handedly renewing my interest in gaming. Taking the ~160+ hours invested into that game into consideration, I've likely gamed more this year than the last 5 combined. So while it's sad to see that story coming to a definitive conclusion, I'm extremely satisfied with the game as a whole. I'm not sure if I want to try out Master Mode - I mean I still haven't even been able to get good enough to finish the Master Sword trials!

    I got a shit ton of e-shop gift cards for Xmas, so I'm looking at what to get (probably FINALLY Sonic Mania) - there's many games on sale right now so I suggest checking that out. Oxenfree is only $4.99, so I jumped at that.

    VS. Super Mario Bros. is out and will completely change how you feel about that game if you've never played the arcade version. Power-ups and enemies have been shifted around compared to the NES game, and several levels are changed around as well to make it much more difficult. They even subbed in a few "Lost Levels" from the then-new SMB2 in Japan just to be assholes. Good luck.

    Footage I recorded of myself in a Splatoon 2 - League battle with the three best players I'm acquainted with! =D.

    Looks kinda ridic to me actually. Maybe the first Switch mistake. Either this is genius OR we'll be making fun of Ninty for decades.

    Switch had mostly successes so far. The only thing I don't think was that succesful was 1 2 Switch; I don't actually know anyone who got that game. It seemed like a pathetic attempt at replicating the Wii Sports experience. They should have slapped a Nintendoland or Mario Party theme on that one.
    Oh and from a branding perspective I really think Fire Emblem Warriors was a mistake.
