I think this likely :no1curr, but just in case-

Do not purchase Cotton Reboot's "Asian English" physical release if you want English language.  Despite the listing and it coming out three weeks after the Japanese version, it is literally the same game with a sticker slapped on the outside of the packaging, which means when you update the game to version 1.01, it will remove English from the game.

Finished Bravely Default 2 and it was ok. The story and world never do anything really neat. While the writing is ok and it can get surprisingly dark, it's just not clever at all. The whole soul of the game reminds me of being around that dude at work who has all the candor of a funny person but tells the corniest jokes that don't hit. It also thinks it's clever, but the whole fake ending stuff is really tiring me in Japanese games.

The battle system is nice. The jobs and how passive abilities work really makes you think methodically about how you set-up your party. Though strangely magic seems really weak and in the end it seemed much more effective to just give my characters axes and just let them be the best physical fighters they could be.

I don't know, it's 2021. JRPGS are in a good place and BD2 is just a pretty average game at best.

Quote
Arika has released the recently announced Fighting EX Layer: Another Dash for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in Japan as a free download. An exact release date for North America and Europe has yet to be determined, but it is planned to launch sometime in April.

The free base download includes Arcade Mode and local offline multiplayer with four characters. By purchasing the 2,800 yen “Full Pack,” you will gain access to Training Mode, online ranked and casual matches, and an additional 14 characters for a total of 18 playable characters (plus all color options). A future update will add an online spectate mode.



It's a great port.  Runs in full English too!

I got on my switch to get lego city undercover and saw that wonder boy remake and herzog zwei were on sale and used my Nintendo bucks on those instead.

Lego City Undercover only $6

https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/lego-city-undercover-switch/

What's the selling point of this one?

Usually the Lego games are good because the licenses. Gameplay is usually pretty simple.

I haven't played a GTA since Vice City, but yes it is quite close to what GTA was back then. Out of the seven Lego games that I've sampled, Lego City is by far the best. My kids love it.

Hand-held performance is pretty bad but for $6 it's fine. Loading times are a bigger issue for it on Switch imo

Lego City was great on WiiU. Loading times were a bitch though.

For $6 it's well worth it.

For some reason it's $16 in my region. 75% off, but with a higher base price.

Interested in checking it out- Tetris 99 is a lot of fun!  This isn't going to get shut down after a few months like Mario 35, either.

I've been leaning towards getting it but waiting for a good sale. 😬

Things is, even though it's dumbed down babby YGO I've invested a bit in Duel Links, and still find that quite fun... so it's hard to justify a full price YGO game in comparison. It's literally just "good enough" lol.

Link Evolution is supposed to be quite good though.

Seems like the focus is on trying to eat as many ghosts as possible to take out other players.  You can eat fruit to regenerate the board.

I got the paid content- the themes are crazy.  Some of them completely change the look of the entire game, including sprite sizes.

Ahhh, I was wondering about that because I cleared the board and it just stayed blank.

$30 for everything (all themes, modes, etc.).  You can also pay $15 to unlock all the modes and then you can buy the individual themes for $2 each IIRC.

protips (ymmv):

- use the vector theme
- update the controls so the L stick can control movement (and use it in-game)
- I generally play defensively, so power-up = Speed and target = Counter
- however sometimes at the 50 mark (simple and hard to miss demarcation) I switch to offensive: power-up = Strong and target = Knockout.
- you gain a permanent speed boost for the game if you collect all the dots before getting the fruit to reset the board
- I attempt to do so (get all dots) as long as possible until Red Pac-Men show up, then I switch 100% to survival
- Power Pellets clear all Ghost Pac-Men and stall Red Pac-Men; only a fruit can clear Red Pac-Men
- "cutting corners" will cause sparks and make you very very temporarily invincible when rounding a corner (if you have good timing)

Forever Entertainment is basically Sega second-party right now, they did Panzer Dragoon 1 & 2 Remakes. (Which for the record received major post-launch support to address various shortcomings in the original set of reviews.)

They got Sega's blessing to make remakes for HotD 1 & 2 in later 2019. :)

I am excited. :lawd
