@kyleforrester87 Let go of your Switch in handheld mode at some point. It'll actually survive!

Still, nice to see you enjoyed the game enough to do that.

Coz I sure as hell didnt get past the opening hours. Never been so bored in my life. XD

@Knuckles-Fajita Yeah it's a weird one, I know you like XBC1 (or X?) and I got it on 3DS hoping I'd enjoy it as much or more than the 2nd one but after forcing myself to play it for 20 hours I just wasn't having as much fun. I don't think it worked very well on the 3DS to be fair, I'd give it another shot on console but I don't fancy buying a Wii or Wii U just for that and XBCX. If they remake it for Switch I'll be first in line though.

@kyleforrester87 I like XCX. Never played XC, probably wont after trying XC2.

XCX is such a vastly different style of game that I fell in love with, the battle system isnt slow and clunky, your options are more varied at any one time rather than relying on switching or simply...waiting. Auto-attacks feel better in X and the world was just more interesting from the off.

I mean...its two very different style of games. Sadly though I think a Switch port of X would be far too costly given how tailor made for Wii U system architecture that game was, and how the tech foundation was built specifically to make it work as well as it does at that scope.

Then again, XC2 is built on that engine, so maybe its just the little workarounds and such they built into how assets are loaded that would need to be reworked.

But I also dont see them doing a sequel to XCX either despite needing it, given its sales compared to the other two.

@Knuckles-Fajita XBC2 starts off pretty slow but the battle system does get pretty involving in my opinion once everything opens up. There is a great rhythm to it all which I enjoy. I appreciate it has less focus on placement for example over the previous games but you usually have enough to keep an eye on without moving the characters around much.

@kyleforrester87 It's really hard for me to quantify why I like X so much more. The MMO light elements are cool but I think I really just enjoy having a world to explore too. Plus the more "Expedition" kind of aspect of it helped. Return to base, refuel, craft, countless quests...

Kinda like what Anthem was originally now I think about it. XD

I know people have said it gets good for XC2....but I also played for a good 7 hours. Yes, that's a small part of the game, but its still 7 hours. If you dont grab me in that time...well that's a problem. It's why I won't play Nier, because the phrase "It gets good after your second playthrough" is one of the most backhanded compliments I've ever heard XD

@kyleforrester87 If you liked the base game you should buy the Torna prequel game. Some of the issues I had with the base game were refined in it. The handheld mode is still bad though but it has better characters and overall narative imo.

@kyleforrester87 True. That was a fun 6 months playing XCX.

Finished up FFXHD yesterday. I put much more detailed thoughts in the "Games you recently beat" thread, but in general I thought it held up really well, and I enjoyed my time with it.

I should be getting Katamari Damacy Reroll in soon, and am pretty excited to try it out since I've never played anything in the series before.

I just got a message on my Switch from Nintendo stating that prices of games published by Nintendo on the eShop will increase on June 24th 2019. This only applies for the Swedish market and the price changes are being made "to reflect the market conditions in Sweden".

I've never heard of a publisher increasing the prices on their games due to changed market conditions during an ongoing generation. I know that Sony has increased the price for the PS+ service but that's it. Also, the message specifically said that the changes are only being made for the Swedish market, which is really weird. I've never seen a publisher do something like this. Hopefully the price adjustments aren't too drastic.

@KratosMD Yikes, Nintendo games are already expensive enough across Europe. What do they mean by market conditions? I'm sure the same will happen here if Sterling depreciates any further.

@KratosMD How expensive are games usually in Sweden in euros? Physical is already cheaper than digital over here, so if digital prices go up even more, then importing from another European country may be way cheaper.

Octane

KratosMD

@Octane Digital is usually cheaper than physical in terms of Nintendo published games. A new release costs around €60 for a physical copy, while a digital copy costs like €53.

It could be that digital copies are actually too cheap compared to physical ones in Sweden and they need to adjust that. @mookysam It makes sense but the whole process is still weird to me. It's a very unconventional thing.

KratosMD

Octane

@KratosMD It's the other way around for me. Digital is always €60, but physical can be as low as €50 at launch.

@KratosMD Same here in the UK. Physical at launch is normally cheaper I think. For Nintendo games, oddly, I tend to buy physical over digital regardless of price just because value doesnt dip as quickly.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

So an update regarding the new prices of eShop games published by Nintendo in Sweden. Apparently games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have had their prices bumped up from €53 to €60, which makes sense. However, then we have games like Smash Ultimate and Breath of the Wild which have had their prices bumped up from €60 to almost €70. That's absolutely insane to me, but I guess some online stores are actually selling those games physically at that price. Oh and season passes like the one for BotW cost now an additional €0.8, lol.

In more positive news, apparently I was one of the players that won the latest Tetris 99 weekend event. I actually wasn't even deliberately playing the game for the sake of the event, I was just in the mood and so I managed to accumulate two tickets I believe (I had around 250 points) throughout the weekend. Apparently that was enough for me to win. I realised this when I saw that I had over 1000 gold points on my eShop account and the reward for winning the event was 999 gold points. So now I got €10 to spend on anything I'd like on the eShop, which is really sweet. This honestly made my day since I never win stuff like this.

@KratosMD Well done my man, it's always good to be rewarded for something you enjoy doing.

Those prices suck too! I always wait for sales to buy anything for my Switch, your gonna need something like double discounts to get those prices down to something reasonable though.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
