    This game is everything I've been waiting for! I got the items needed to craft the Rhava Velar last night (Crissaegrim).

    Now that I've started immediately skipping any/all dialogue, I'm really falling in love with it.

    Only have Pokemon Let's Go (which i'm playing) and Gal Gun 2, so any Switch recommendations would be great (i know i need Smash and Kart)

    Checked out New Super Mario Bros U from the media library at the university i work at. I love it. My wife just plays as nabbit and sprints to the end of each level though, which is quite annoying.

    I got Bloodstained (on Switch) in the mail today. It's not quite the abomination you'd think from reading the wonders of the Internet. Actually pretty much fun as fuck. It feels like a legit continuation of the GBA/DS era Castlevania games.

    Abomination? Really? I've seen a ton of praise for it. Pretty fun too. My only gripe are the load times. If I die, I get hit by a pretty hefty load time. Bad enough for me to rebuild my database (ps4). Helped a little bit but not too much.

    Yeah, the Switch version is getting panned beyond belief. The devs put out a statement that they'll get to work on it quick, though.

    Oh wow. Had no idea about that. Guess I lucked out with my impatience. Was originally going to get the switch version but didn't feel like waiting another week.

    the game is unpolished... there were a heap of glitches that hit the PS4 version on release, but they're ironing them out.

    The game itself is pretty fantastic, though I have some gripes. Boss fights can be beaten just by spamming attacks as long as you have a decent amount of healing items... some of the "where to go next" solutions are cryptic and confusing, and when you figure them out it's more "oh fuck you" than "ah ha!" Different weapon types aren't really balanced to take on the world... the story is dogshit and best ignored... some of the boss graphics, primarily the first two, are almost laughably bad on a design level.

    I still have got my money's worth and then some, and I'll be buying into the DLC.

    I've personally had nothing but smooth sailing with the GOG version; I even went ahead and spent an extra $20 to get the soundtrack and Iga's Back Pack. I got to play about 20 minutes of the Switch version earlier, and it feels clunky overall. In addition to the 30 fps cap, the graphics are similar to setting everything at "Medium" on the PC version(s).

    I'm enjoying the various weapon types and the differences in play between each. Martial art types (Shoes) are surprisingly easy to control with a keyboard + mouse, as is the Shield Weapon. The 8-bit weapons remain top-notch even after the damage adjustments.

    I got a kick out of those Pheonix Wright games, @Space Suicide , despite initially thinking "what in the FUCK?"

    as for me, I've been playing Link's Awakening DX: I got a gbc emulator going on my DS.
    It's amazing how such an enthralling game was created for such a weak system.

    I'm also trying Harvest Moon: A Tale of Two Towns, to help with anxiety.

    And I was wondering: are any of you guys into Harvest Moon? If so, which one should I be playing? I have access to every Nintendo console up to, and including, Wii, with some being actual consoles, and a couple being emulators.

    Made the mistake of starting ANOTHER new game, Far Cry New Dawn...and i like it so far, embracing the ridiculous stuff like 5 should have done. REALLY want Bloodstained now too but will wait for the Switch version maybe after payday...oh and Kill la Kill IF, that demo is FUUUUUUUN.

    Here are some caps to be aware of. These are for a single playthrough with all Passive/Skill shards maxed, food buffs, and library books:

    HP = 2271
    MP = 1447
    Ammo = 139

    There are 31 HP +'s per playthrough, but you can only benefit from 25 (ever)
    There are 30 MP +'s per playthrough; you can only benefit from 30 (ever)
    There are 22 Ammo Capacity +'s per playthrough; you are able to max this at 999 (8 playthroughs)

    It takes 2 playthroughs to max the Silver Knight familiar [9] and the Shortcut passive [8] (4 per playthrough)
    A "true" 100% completion takes 9 playthroughs (boss shards)
