from what little I've read I'm kinda intrigued by the idea of a more powerful switch as a mid generation stop gap. the way I understand it is because so many current games are utilizing tech like adaptive resolution etc. upgrading to more powerful hardware could mean that the games you already own could run/look better almost automatically

Square games go on sale all the time on the PlayStation store, I wonder if this will hold true for eshop

I don't mind paying $50 for X and X-2 together, I never played them

I would probably wait for XII to fall to $30 or something before running through it again

I've never played a ff except the snes one which I hated and generally I’m turned off by random encounters + turn-based combat, but the characters and worldbuilding from what I've seen seem pretty cool. which one should I get

If there is a TV only one, a handeld one and a both one, it only takes a marketing team to make it all relevent to switching

I've never really given FFX a real shot. I'm not sure if it will be for me.

i really enjoyed FFX at the time it was released, but i could see it maybe not aging so well. i randomly found FFX-2 in the trunk of my car before i traded it in.

Is there a video game petition site where I can sign for a FF8 release on the Switch even if it's just an emulator with the PSX roms on it

Why isn’t there a PS4, Xbox and Switch port of Final Fantasy 8? Preservation may be the answer

i’ve been chomping through octopath having a ball. the game isn’t perfect but it’s damn good, especially the battle system and sound track. hitting the right nostalgia spots for me.

my current replay of botw has been great...probably hadn't played in over a year until this time. ultimately found the DLC content a little disappointing but considering the low price, not much to complain about

I need some BOTW talk. I started over after never finishing it the first time.

Maxing out my stamina first really opens up the world and let me get better weapons earlier on.

Mastering the Guardian beam reflect was also key.

Ancient arrows are totally OP.

we talkin BOTW in here? just started a week-ish ago

i spend a lot of time just aimlessly wandering which means i'm still not all that good (guardians still fuck me up and i don't know what an ancient arrow is) or strong but aimlessly wandering in this game just absolutely rips. i've opened up like 33% of the map lol

So I started last week? I guess, did a fast playthrough where I got the Master Sword and beat all the blightersToggle Spoiler before beating the game, now i'm going to do more of an exploratory playthrough, get all the DLC, find all the shrines, etc.

Nothing has been very difficult, per se, but some of the boss battles were very confusing at first.

this is my 3rd time playing through it and while each time i have done shit in a completely different order, the one thing i make the highest priority every time is obtaining the stealth gear asap. this play through in particular, i barely fight outside of a 'boss' here or there. there's no need for me and fighting isn't what makes the game so enjoyable for me, it's just the pure exploration and how immersive the world is

i mostly prioritize stamina over heart vessels too and think revali's gale is easily the best champion's abilityToggle Spoiler upon replaying it

edited to add spoiler tag for a potential later thing since we got newcomers

approaching the early quests with the knowledge gained from playing the first time (rather than fumbling towards understanding), starting with a clean slate, etc. I do this a lot.

Same. It was over a year since my last playthrough and I just wanted to do things again since I forgot almost all of it anyway.

Maxing out my stamina and just being able to glide from cliff to cliff is perfect. There's a lot of open space for just hiking.
