post #331 of 360
Well you said Diablo was your limit but disgaea has a reputation for taking a really long time. Maybe that would keep your attention untill Mario or if the reputation is true you'll still be playing it when Metroid comes out... course you mentioned pounds. Don't know if disgaea came out in your region.

And Mario Galaxy could be good. I'm old enough I remember the SNES launch. No games for that when first released either. But it picked up. And switch is already better off than wii u. Mario, Mario kart, Zelda and Metroid. Similar winning line up. Actually SF2 came out for switch too. All it needs now is a f-zero. And I guess SimCity... maybe pilot wings.

Guess I'm saying I'm keeping mine.

If you're curious about Lego worlds it is on Steam so you could try it there and then ask for a refund (if you don't like it or want it for the Switch instread)

As for you used to loving your switch it sounds like you really loved Zelda on it but none of the other games really grabbed you. As for justifying holding on to it... well chances are there will be another Zelda game, There will likely be another Mario Kart game (seeing as 8 deluxe is just 8 with improvements and a real battle mode) Also it is getting a Metroid game in the future. (I won't try to talk about the merits of Xenoblade as you said you weren't a fan of jRPGs) I get the feeling that Fire Emblem Warriors game won't be for you either.

The switch isn't for everyone and it definitely has a lacking library at this point, Nintendo is trying to offset this with Indie games at the moment. At this stage I've spent 2.50/hr on the switch (for every hour I've currently played it has cost me $2.50. I came about this number by adding up all the stuff I've bought for the switch and divided it by all the game time I've put in) and I'm hoping to be able to get that number into the $1.50/hr (or lower) range. I'm fairly confident I can do it because I managed to log over 3000hrs on my Wii U. Perhaps doing such analysis will help you. Otherwise I would look at selling your system (especially if supply issues in your region haven't been sorted out - they still aren't widely available in my region)

For those people excited about Octopath traveler am I the only one not really excited about it? My impressions so far is that the graphics are really nice but the combat system is really boring, there just isn't anything new here and it comes across as really dated. The world & Characters haven't really gripped me either (which would allow me to overlook the boring combat system, I just don't care enough about either characters)

It's a turn based combat system.. what do you want? If you don't like this kind of game you're just missing out.. the SNES era of JRPGs are some of the best games ever made and Squaresoft is giving us that again just made for modern times... and if it's about story, we've seen a total of 30-60 mins of what might be a 60-100 hour game so even though my initial impressions of the stories were really good, there's really not enough for you to go by to say it's not going to be good.

And from what I've seen, yes you are the only one.. I've read person after person saying they love it, or they didn't think it would be that good but now they will purchase day 1 after seeing the demo, etc.

I'm going to give octopath another shot. Turn based combat isn't the issue the issue is it doesn't appear to have any depth. From the SNES era I really enjoyed the final fantasy games (Final Fantasy VI is my favorite FF game of the series of the ones that I've played(which is most of them)) released for that system and I also really enjoyed Earthbound. Those games had compelling stories, settings & characters and that is something that I didn't encounter in octopath as I said it just hasn't gripped me. I'll still likely end up purchasing it once it releases

The world & Characters haven't really gripped me either (which would allow me to overlook the boring combat system, I just don't care enough about either characters
)

Played the demo for 20 minutes. Got into the first in-game scene where the main character is infront of a bunch of troops. They're all doing the same animation, at the same time... and they look like they're teabagging. My GF came over to see what I was doing and was like... *** is that. lol!

The environments are beautiful but the characters and animations are just far too dated to hold my interest, it could have the best story ever written, but as amay200 said, there's just no depth to it and as it looks the way it does, I just can't bring myself to play it. I envy those who do. It's not like for example, a book where you can imagine what is going on, they've added visualisations to it, and if those visualisations aren't good enough (IMO), then I don't feel as though in my mind, I can add another layer of imagination to it. What I am seeing, is what I am also imagining in my head. And if what I am seeing in my head, is troops in syncronisation teabagging, then that's how I will remember it.

I played a fair amount of Final Fantasy XV, but it started to get on my nerves, it's like playing as a super-hero boyband. I can't deal with it anymore. I was a huge huge fan of FFVII & VIII, even X was excellent so I have no idea what on earth they were thinking with XV. I love anime and Studio Ghibli, but only select movies/series, ones that don't involve tentacles... or under-dressed protagonists.

Regarding Lego Worlds, I've watched a tonne of gameplay, and I think it would hold my interest for a little while, but again, I'm not sure if it will bring me anything that Minecraft hasn't aside from vehicles.

Then finally, regarding the Xbox One X, I am looking to move away from PC gaming because I live in a 1 bed flat with my Girlfriend. We don't have room for a desk so I am left using my 4ktv for my PC. Whilst it is great, and I really like it, I won't ever own a PC powerful enough to push 4K. I started my own computer building business, and after roughly half a year, and 4 postal claims involving dead components, I am now actually down over £400. I started it to make money, but it just hasn't worked out. Now I'm sat on over £1500 worth of components that I'm trying to sell, but people keep low balling me and it is a nightmare. They're all older parts. I did have an i7 7700k + 1080ti for about a month, that was glorious on the TV, but since selling that, I've spent all the profit on the damn switch. And now I'm stuck -£400 waiting for postal claims. -_-

I am completely sold on getting a switch now.. first i just wanted it for Zelda and OPT but then i realized how completely great Xenoblade is going to be..
I am a huge fan of Xenosaga.. it's my favorite RPG after select final fantasies.. but the PS2 was the last console i ever bought so i never really looked at the Xenoblade games that hard.
Now i just started playing Xenoblade chronicles on the dolphin emulator and it is SO good.. they made a HD texture pack it looks amazing.
I will definitely have a switch in time to purchase Xenoblade chronicles 2 on dec 1st.
