Octopath Traveller-Switch

Anybody else playing this? So far I have about 4 hours into it and all I can say is wow! I am really enjoying this game. If you are into Final Fantasy or Dragon Warrior type JRPG's you will love this game. This is the the first JRPG where I actually care about the story and can follow it. The cut sc...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces (Switch)

I was sure this was going to be the next big thing, but I'm just not feeling it. Mario Tennis Aces begins slowly, with a lot of gimmicks, mini-games, and boss battles. I thought that was just to get you up to speed with the controls, but I'm starting to think the whole game is like this. There's ve...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces

I'm not too impressed with Aces so far. Seems like it's 90% mini-games and bosses, 10% tennis. And the tennis is loaded with gimmicks. I am with you on this one. It is far too complicated with all the special moves and nonsense. Playing with my daughter in doubles is fun but there are no modes or a...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

I was lucky enough to find one, in the Wild, today (Nintendo must have really stepped up their game, since everybody I know who wanted one, who missed out the last time, managed to snag one this weekend): My thoughts? It’s a cool little device, but it has sort of a “meh” factor, after the awesomene...

Re: Jurassic World

I saw Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom and I think it's a lot better than people make it out to be. It had a very different feel from the other films, and there are some nifty new creatures. Plenty of action and edge-of-your-seat thrills. It's not as good as the original Jurassic Park, but I think it'...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces

Eh. Something about Mario themed sports games, at least the non-rpg/Camelot games, doesn’t interest me at all. The Switch schedule is a bit too crowded for me to bother with this. Flashback 25th Anniversary, Night Trap, Wolfenstein II, Octopath, and Dark Souls Remaster will be taking up most of my ...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces

[quote="Voor"]Is there a “no gimmicks” mode for online play? That's a good question, I am not sure. It could use one because all the online matches delve into the first person being able to do any number of special attacks which do not require much skill. This game really needs stat tracki...

Re: The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

The Commodore 64 had some excellent RPG games. There were several Dungeons & Dragons games. You could build your characters up and transfer them to the next game. Thankfully Buck Rodgers Countdown to Doomsday was ported to the Sega Genesis with about ever thing intact gameplay wise. On the C64 ...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces

Thanks for posting your experience with it! You saved me $60. (Or 48 with Best Buys discount). I'm still slowly working my way through Axiom Verge but want to pick up something new. Between Arms and Tennis which would you prefer? With a new house and toddler these days I get about 20 to 30 minutes ...
