ohhh dang on act 2 now and agree with above, this game is tough. mis-clicking a unit command is a traumatic error.

I’m in the middle of Celeste now and it’s phenomenal. So challenging but it’s so easy and satisfying to keep throwing tries at a tough section and gradually getting better that it never really gets frustrating.

hk endgame spoilers
Toggle Spoiler

i think this is the sloppiest of my absolute radiance wins (i got hit 3 times by what's normally the easiest dodge) but it's the one i recorded so whatever

this might be the hardest video game boss i've fought? souls bosses got nothing. glad im now beating AR regularly in godhome but i still dont really think endings should be gated behind this boss. end the pantheon with the damn pure vessel

just beat New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe last night. What a joy that game was. It belongs right near the top of Mario 2d platformers.

Also, it's awesome that Downwell isn't being priced with "switch tax" I was expecting the game to be priced at like $9.99

Dug out Mario Party for the first time in a while.

I think MP8 (?) on the Wii was the last one I really enjoyed. This is better than 9, but there's a couple of mechanical things I don't like, the boards are small and they're always slow to traverse, and though generally the minigames are pretty good, I find we get many of the same ones over and over again, sometimes even in the same game.

Really wish they would DLC a couple of extra boards and fix a couple of things, because even my 7 year old is noticing it.

Amazon updated me this morning saying my pre-order was delayed till 27 February THROUGH 27 March, wtf. I guess there's like a big shortage in Europe for some reason? They are talking about it on the Etrian Odyssey reddit!

Anywho I quick cancelled my pre-order and bought it from Game and they shipped today and now it's out of stock on Game :ugeek:

So finally making the Switch jump. Just one question, I already have Breath of the Wild on the WiiU and didn't finish it yet.

Is there a good reason to buy it for the Switch? Like is there DLC or gameplay that's only available on the Switch version? I already know that the graphics are better.

not really, though i think the form factor of the Switch may be reason alone to give it another shot

Thanks. Yeah, I was thinking playing BotW would be cool to play on the go, but it's not as if there isn't plenty of other games to buy for it.

Probably get Smash first to play with the kid, then Odyssey and Party.

so the lack of ability to save during a Wargroove map is a needlessly mean point that makes some maps take way too long and overly punish you for making a few bad decisions (that can take many turns to completely screw you on). I don't know if it was a conscious choice or not or if Advance Wars did it too but it's definitely the reason I've been thinking twice before playing for bed or whatnot.

It was needlessly on brand when I just learned Realpolitik existed and googled it +'socialism?' and then lost interest when I saw there's no socialism or communism possible in the game.

I guess what I'm saying is I want a socialist revolution simulator. You win when you complete the transition to Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism, naturally.

oh yeah-i love the across genres these social games and i'm never going to get everything I want
Civ's obsession w/ antiquated development models and state-of-nature shit
Sim City's Forrester obsession
Tropico is just a dictator simulator
Superpower and Diplomacy were apparently real bad

I'm hoping it delivers interesting decisions in real politiks and I'll probably just play venezuela or greece a bunch of times with self-imposed limitations and add-in scenarios like in Tropico (say-no tourist dock, refuse all extraction demands, no prisons, etc). what is wild is how there are no prisons necessary if you follow neoliberal rulesets and yet

I havent played Wargroove since I overextended my army and lost after a 45 minute game. I'll probably pick it up again soon.

The animations are soooooo slow and skip basically takes as much time as watching them.

they’re pushing out an update fairly quickly that addresses some of the these concerns

The ability to skip battle scenes more quickly. With various options on how this will work.
The ability to force fast map movement to ‘always on’.
Tooltips and more info for the effective/vulnerable charts.
In multiplayer, the host will be able to fill open spots with CPU players.
Display S rank requirements. (Tip for now, it’s always based on number of turns.)
Make it more difficult to accidentally end a turn.
Multiplayer Lobby improvements
Various bug fixes

also there is a way to save during a battle using “Exit” but it’s a bit cheap.
