The hype surrounding it was mostly because this is the first game in the Shining franchise to get translated and published in the west in ... 14 years (?) or so.

I bought the full game but haven't played it yet. It did come across as rather generic in the demo but the battle system is really fun.

If they want the "Shining" name to generate real hype in the west, Just give us Shining Force REMASTERED then? All four games! Not that that would happen, given that would require SEGA to pull their finger out and actually finish translation on Shining Force 3 in the first place :roll:

I beat the first level of Donkey Kong: Tropicsl Freeze and am worn out already. I don’t know why, because I appreciate it’s well made and stuff, but this game is such a snooze fest

Also these time attack things are impossible what the fuk

Okami fits on the Switch like a glove. Maybe it's the chunky art work with those big, Japanese ink lines, but it's just perfect on that screen.

Now I want windwaker in it😀
Is it on the Switch?

I really, really am ready and want to play Mafia 3 but Red Dead 2 is so close I don’t want to dilute and open world gaming. I want to be at least fatigued as possible by the time that game rolls around.

That's pretty much the exact reason I'm holding off on Mafia 3, well, that and Spider Man... and Shenmue... and Shadow of the Tomb Raider... and God knows what else...🤣🤣

I don't have Red Dead on my list so I can enjoy everything else I suppose. Not by a lack of interest but I never played Redemption so it seems kinda dumb to look forward to the follow-up.

Also with Tomb Raider, Darksiders, AC Odyssey, Pokémon and a few RPGs still on the horizon I really don't need another big game.

To be fair Mary, RDR2 is actually a prequel so it may work in your favour... :wink:

Yeah but then I'd have to go back to RDR graphics eventually and I don't think that's the right way. I already have the backwards compatible version on my Xbox One, I just haven't found the right time to play it yet. It's not running away.

Currently relaxing the gardens of Okami.

I'll probably swap this around with my Switch Skyrim build (currently over 50 hours) until Tomb raider comes out.
Is it on the Switch?

Finally picked up Ys VIII again thanks to the cooler weekend. It's always so hard to get back to a (J)RPG after having stopped playing for a few weeks so I kind of had to force myself for about two hours until I was back 'in' the game. Still a really nice and enjoyable title despite the very limited and monotonous combat. Thankfully it starts delivering on the story front as soon as you grow a bit tired of fighting. I'm just past the 40 hours mark right now and probably nearing the end. Found every castaway, map is about 95% complete and I ran into an optional level 80 boss earlier that I have to come back for (currently at 63).

Persona 5. It’s really bloody good isn’t it!? Not played a JRPG properly for years. Loving it. Although there are a few too many systems going on! Getting confused and forget about some when I’ve not played for a couple of days, hope there’s some I can ignore or it might get too much.
