Dragon's Dogma is really teasing me. I've already spent quite a lot of time with the game on PS3, PS4, and PC. I don't know if I can go back to 30FPS, but playing it on a handheld sounds really nice.

I took the dip despite having the PC version already.

I feel having it in portable would make for a more engaging adventure.

I recommend the Strider. Ranged attacks are very useful in this game.
I wish Dragons Dogma was out already, the long weekend would've been perfect for it. I'll be back at work when it releases :(

Start with either Strider or Fighter, don't choose Mage (yet). I'd suggest Strider myself, because the archery is really fun!
Anyway, you will be locked into the class until you make it to the city, and then you can change class as many times as you want, no penalty. It's worth trying them all out, even in the same playthrough.

The reason I'm advising against going Mage is that it's not very fun at low low level. Try it out when you have the pawns to support you.
It'll make sense when you're in the game.
I'll recommend Strider too. It's a dual blade wielding class that focuses on fast movement and quick melee attacks as well as archery (this game's archery is incredible, btw). It's just very fun and badass.

But just so you know, you shouldn't worry about missing out on potentially more fun classes, as you can freely switch between them and basically try all of them; it's actually encouraged too.
Appreciate the tips, ya'll are the homies! I'm definitely gonna go Strider now. I normally play the magic class, but I've been itching for some arrow shooting. Good to know I'll be able to switch around later without penalty though, you rarely get to do that.

Will the pawn system reveal itself to me as I play? I've been reading up on it and it seems a little confusing. With big games like this I always worry about being onboarded with too many systems at the beginning and getting overwhelmed

It was on twitter, actually two days after the AMA. No control customization, but other things:

https://twitter.com/BertilHorberg/status/1115778546582994946

"working on a patch to fix some of the issues people had with the controls etc. Some of the things I'm pretty embarrassed about actually. It's so easy to get used to the quirks of your own game, and not realize how some relatively small fixes could improve it"

https://twitter.com/BertilHorberg/status/1115780883708039168

"For example I honestly don't have a good reason for why you can't do a full height jump from the crouch position, which makes some parts needlessly tricky. I just implemented it like that from the start and got used to it "
Re: Mechstermination Force

Gotcha, thanks for the clarification!

I thought the controls were mostly excellent save for some irritating bits with the magnet gloves and issues with moving platforms. The real kicker for me was no dual-stick aiming for the final boss. I managed to no-damage-clear all missions except that last one and I’m not sure I’ll ever achieve it. Being able to aim and shoot with the right stick would at least give me a sliver of hope. lol

I've finished Senua's Sacrifice, and it had me in tears for the second time. If you were late to this game like me and you prefer to play it on Switch for whatever reason, please don't hesitate.

And now I will spend the rest of the month attempting to not buy Dragon's Dogma.

Anyone? I'm trying to avoid googling or looking at reviews to avoid spoilers.
It is a full VN. Don't know if it is good or not, but I definitely do not recommend it for the following reason:
Well that is unfortunate. Was gonna wait for reviews but now it's just a pass
also: it comes with a bunch of homobhobic bullshit

has anyone tried sudoku relax? i know its just sudoku so what could go wrong but I'd like to at least know that it's not a bug filled mess. It would be nice to have an alternative to picross and baba for my puzzle needs.
Would highly recommend Sudoku Relax. 300 puzzles across easy, normal and hard. Easy ones can be solved easily but hard take some working through. Works really well in handheld using the touch screen with a good system of filling in both full numbers and small numbers in boxes as notes. Well worth the money. Put in a few hours and no bugs yet.

What's the largest size screen? 9x9 or larger?
 
I'm surprised this was approved during the localization process. I do game localization on a daily basis and I warn the client (a translation agency that works with many different publishers) whenever I find anything slightly controversial. They go to the publisher and say "hey, this might be a problem" and the publisher changes the text or asks us to adapt it 99% of the time.

Well, it's PQube. They really don't care.

Honestly, I prefer localization not to be used as a cover for toxic developers. I'd rather expose their bullshit and push to boycott their games as much as possible.

That doesn't really get you anywhere. Boycotts never work and instead of fixing what came from what I would call "clueless" origins where that issue would need to be addressed on a way larger scale before it can trickle down to entertainment, leaving the toxic garbage as-is to "expose" that does nobody any favors.

I finished Katana Zero during weekend and it's really good. I came for the game play but the plot is just something else, it's really something special. I need DLC/sequel like yesterday. It's a little on the expensive side in terms of length but IMO it's worth every penny.

Do you guys have any recommendation on games with good story on the eShop? I am in a mood for some story before bed.

I'm sure others have already said it, but Cuphead is amazing. Tough game but not really "cheap" hard if that makes sense. I always come away from the battles kicking myself for screwing up or making a dumb mistake.

On inkwell 2 so far having played it for about a day or so. Really really good game.

I see your point but don't agree since i

Well, thanks to this game not being "reinterpreted" for "non clueless" audiences I had the chance to learn what this game is like and made avoiding out possible. Had this game been altered I might have bought it to later regret it.
I think raising awareness, exposing these issues and doing something about it as consumers is the way to go but maybe that's just me.

Had it been properly localized (= the problematic BS adapted to our cultural standards) then there would be no issue encounter and later regret.

Performance on Switch is solid? I’m interested in this one.
'You Died but a Necromancer revived you' runs at a rock solid 60 FPS, and it looks gorgeous on the Switch LCD screen.

It's made in GameMaker, so contrary to Unity, 2D games tend to have superb performances.

The game is amazing, I can totally recommend its purchase.

Like 'Whip! Whip!' or 'Overwhelm', the game is a love letter to the Game Boy / Game Boy Advance era.

It feels like playing a forgotten Game Boy Color exclusive game, but using a Super Game Boy player on a SNES, with the same distinctive and charming as fuck borders.

A really fun and incredibly well made arcadey roguelite.

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is one of the most perfect “bedtime” games out there. A beautiful vintage storybook aesthetic, calming music, platforming that’s not too mentally taxing, and a story with prominent nocturnal themes that just might make you tear up at the end (I have no shame in admitting I did!).

I caved and pre-ordered it anyway. A good port is a good port and playing it in bed is just icing on the cake.

To whoever recommended Argatha-s thanks, had a bunch of fun with it... just can’t beat the final boss and there’s two levels I can’t seem to unlock

Also still waiting for a crypt of the necrodancer sale :(
