I up and finally pulled the trigger on one of these things.  Found the AC Edition online, and I had old paypal funds I completely forgot about, so I dumped it on this and the Animal Crossing game.   I'm a bit excited, but a bit weary, as the thought of starting a new library of games when I have the greatest backlog I've ever had still elsewhere.  ...and the thought of prices for games on this thing are absurd as well.  ...maybe that's a good thing, as it will help prevent me from getting too much.  :doge

 Like, BOTW for example... Still selling at $50?!

I recommend you don't stay all-digital with this system and get carts, too- some better deals can be found.

What's your friend code? I can help you out in Animal Crossing, just let me know if you need anything. :) It would help if I visited so we can register as best friends and I can send you stuff in the mail. :heart

Svejk, are you actually going to play AC?  My guess is it's for your kids?

EDIT: I see you said elsewhere it's for your daughter.  Makes sense.

Thank you for the offer :heart, but AC is mainly for my daughter.  I can't say I've had a desire to play AC (yet).  But again, thank you for the offer!

Yeah, for now... I think the 2 games I definitely want to get my hands on personally, are Mario Odyssey and Link's Awakening.

Now, the waiting game for the Zelda 35th Anniversary Direct to drop. :doggy

Set up some price notifications with slick deals. All the big Nintendo games are put on sale at 40 every few months at Target or Walmart.

Tetris 99 is so much fucking fun. When did they add team mode? Love it. Yellow team FTW.

Another good JRPG on Switch
 :lawd

Been playing Sakuna: of Rice and Ruin, along with 3D World. After playing a fuck ton of 3D Mario the past year, 3D World is absolutely the most fun I've had with Mario in general. Best level design and pacing of any platformer.

Tempted to pick up BD2 but I want to finish BD1 first, and maybe play BD Second. Also no way I'd get to this before MH Rise is out in a month, so buying it at $60 when it'll be $30-40 in a couple months when I actually have time to play it is dumb.

Then again, pandemic boredom = oooh new rpg buy endorphins yayyy and then play an hour and shelve it. Trying to stay strong and save that $20-30.

Yeah, The World Ends With You Switch port is still full price on Amazon. It and BD2 were published by Nintendo WW, so it may not really get discounted. This isn't Final Fantasy.

Ordered BD2 because I had some coupons/credits expiring from BB. I've never played the first two games, but that review sold me. Plus physical copies of rpgs for the Switch seem to disappear within a year (Octopath & XB2).

Downloaded the demo for FFCC Remastered, big mistake, I'm almost certainly going to be shelling out $30 for the full version when I hit the demo limits. 😬 The demo is essentially the full game including online, just with some minor limits, and you can transfer your save to the full version later if you want.

I know the gameplay isn't everyone's cup of tea, and it is much more basic than the two DS games (Ring of Fates and especially Echoes of Time) that vastly improved on the formula, and the online is region-segmented and likely dead now, but... nostalgia is a hell of a drug. :P And the presentation still holds up.

If anyone else has it and wants to play online before MH Rise takes over my life at the end of March, let me know! :D

I can join in sometime this week. I didn't like the reviews for it so I ignored it, but I didn't realize there was a demo like this out there.

Nice!

I also just learned only the host needs to have bought the full version, everyone else can be a free/"Lite" player. :o And even if it's region limited, PS4 + Switch + iOS + Android cross-play is pretty cool.

You might get lucky at GameFly. They've had used copies of Octopath for $40 in the past.

Bravery Default 2 is pretty awesome and addictive. The writing is good, the story itself has been a bit generic, but the music and gameplay are excellent.

Having the ability to jack up battle speed and repeat your last turn makes grinding next to painless. I've basically done all the prologue stuff, about to head where the demo takes place, but I've found a very efficient way to master jobs quickly.

The Freelancer job has two JP passives (Jobber points) , it ups the JP you get by x1.7. Combine that with using lure to trigger consecutive battles with specific families of monsters, you're looking at 500 JP for a juicy battle.

OH!

You can also use the boat to passively collect job experience orbs while you're not playing the game. I'm spending them to unlock the JP boost abilities. Hopefully that will help out reducing the playtime from 60 to 40 hours.

Overall it's pretty good. Poor story, good combat.

The story seems even worse in this game compared to the first BD. At least there the characters were charming and had some conflict between them that was fun to follow. Here everyone is so buddy buddy right from the get-go and it's pretty boring.

Also, games are miracles that they even happen, somehow you get all this talent and resources together and you create something............so generic. Why? I mean I guess that's the point of BD, to be a throwback. But I think I'm tired of generic whatever fantasy in Japanese RPGS. They all feel the same. Here's the desert Arabian place...Here's the European castle place.. and so on. These aren't interesting worlds to learn about.

I don't know it's ok.

Indeed. I'm maybe 4 hours in and all characters are a lot more bland compared to the first two Bravely Defaults. That being said it's still a lot better written than e.g. Alliance Alive or I am Setsuna.

Was considering getting an good ol JRPG on this thing.  Is there one that's a must have/play one on the Switch that you all recommend?  I've kinda narrowed down between DQXI and Xenoblade Chronicles.  Never played DQXI, and only played a portion of XB.  Is there any other one's y'all would recommend over those? Is Octopath Traveler better?

It's difficult to make recommendations without knowing your preferences. I don't consider any game on the Switch a must play even though it's a fantastic system.

I haven't enjoyed any of the Xenoblade games. I also didn't enjoy Final Fantasy XII which uses a similar combat system.

Dragon Quest XI is possibly the best game in the series. If you enjoy traditional JRPGs then that's your best bet.

I really enjoyed Octopath Traveler, but ended up dropping it towards the end.

I took a brief look at some "best RPGs for the Switch" articles. Many list games like The Witcher 3 and Divinity: Original Sin that I would much rather play on PC.

See, I completely forgot about FFXII on here.. Another game I only played a portion of, but dropped for some reason I can't remember back then.  And I didn't know Divinity was on here either.   :thinking
I'm down for almost anything turn based, or pseudo turn based (like FFXI & XB).  I think my current thought process is something shorter, but I'm totally in the wrong genre for shortness.  :-[
Why can't RPG's just be shorter like Suikoden 1 and Chrono Trigger? :-\   I'm just putting out feelers.. I'm probably never going to find time to actually complete one, but it'd be nice to at least have something to have on the side.  Octopath looks amazing, guess I'm wondering if the story (stories?) will keep my interest.

If you enjoy older RPGs then there are plenty to choose from on the Switch. There are collections for the Mana and SaGa (Final Fantasy Legend) series, SNK 40th anniversary collection, a Mega Drive collection, the Final Fantasy games from PS1 and PS2, an improved version of Phantasy Star, etc. If you pay for Nintendo Online you also have some RPGs in the NES and SNES collections, e.g. Breath of Fire.

Many classic RPGs are missing, but if you want to feel nostalgic for a few hours then there are many alternatives.
