@Ralizah yeah for some. Never been a fan of the series but it does at least look good. I was speaking more about myself. I found only 1 thing in each show that was appealing.

@Knuckles-Fajita Oh yes, I'm so over Axiom Verge 2 when it comes out. Not entirely clear if it a Switch exclusive or not. Tagging in @kyleforrester87 as I know he liked the first game.

My pick up Golf Story for my Christmas game on Switch. That game has always intrigued me so feel like a good time to try it out.And I have money in my Nintendo account and gold points to spend.

@JohnnyShoulder I was just going to post this! This is seriously such a cool thing. At first I thought the games looked mediocre but having played the first one, Robonauts, it's actually pretty damn fun. It's a 2D platformer/shooter game and it has an AMAZING soundtrack. Since it's free you can't go wrong with it. I'm definitely going to download the rest of the 10 games if they're this good.

@JohnnyShoulder I really liked Golf Story and put over 20 hours into it eventually. Just a nice light hearted rpg lite. With golf.

@KratosMD Yeah my mate in work said Robonaughts is pretty decent. Everyone loves a freebie!

@Rudy_Manchego Noice, I fancy a chilled out game over chrimbo while snugged up by the open fire.

I just tried out the Team Battles in Tetris 99 and it’s actually really fun and an interesting take on Tetris in general. The only thing is though that the matches don’t last long at all and the blocks will speed up really fast compared to the regular mode.

Also, Crypt of the Necrodancer and Burly Men at Sea are only €4 and €3 respectively on the Switch eShop. Might have to pick these up, especially since the latter also nets you another game for free according to NL.

I started playing Luigi's Mansion 3 yesterday, and it's been a pretty good time so far.

I like the more Metroid like design, which helps build the atmosphere, which is great in a cartoony sort of way. It's odd how western the art direction feels given it's a Mario series game (the boss ghosts in particular look like something out of a Cartoon Network series), but it makes sense given the development studio.

Only negative (and it's not the game's fault) is that I now have Joy Con drift in full effect, and so Luigi is constantly spinning making things hard to line up with the Poltergust.

Picked up a PowerA pro controller (it's an officially licensed brand) since my Joy-con were starting to drift.

It feels a little cheaper than any first party controller I've used in recent memory, with no HD Rumble, and it still runs on AA batteries, but overall it feels good enough and has made playing Luigi's Mansion 3 easier.

The Christmas sale on Switch is pretty poor if you ask me. Not really a whole lot of quality games on sale. The only ones I'm interested in getting are Gris and Sayonara Wild Hearts since they were talked about a lot during The Game Awards. I feel like they're not worth buying at that price (€9) though.

There's a reason I almost always nab Switch games at launch, but wait on PC/PS4 games. Steam and PSN actually reward you for being patient. Still can't believe I got God of War and Horizon for $10 a pop.

@KratosMD Hmm I would disagree personally. Both are brief but very interesting experiences. I bought Sayonara Wild Hearts for full price and you can get thrugh a full run in an hour (though there is replay value). Gris too come to think of it (though it is a little bit longer).

About to check the out the Switch sale as i got some vouchers gifted to me but for Switch games, I only buy digital if they are purely digital games and try to buy physical. First party games never really drop that much anyway.

Ori and the Blind Forest has been reduced to 10 quid on the store. I'm really tempted at that price.

@JohnnyShoulder Me too, even though I have it for XB1. I just like games like this to be portable.

@Rudy_Manchego I bought Golf Story as it was Deal of the Day. I had just enough money in my Nintendo account to cover the cost. May still get Ori as I've got some gold points to spend.

@Rudy_Manchego Decided to give these games a chance and looked up some reviews and gameplay footage of them. Just like you said, they look very interesting and I might want to get them. Which one would you recommend the most? I'm mostly tempted by Gris since it's a longer experience and the gameplay is more compelling for me than an autorunner/rhythm game that is Sayonara Wild Hearts. I'm also not the kind of person who likes to replay games.

Rudy_Manchego

@KratosMD Hmm tough call and don't want to get it wrong for you. My favourite of the two was Sayonara Wild Hearts just because it does feel like a music video and I am not usually a pop fan but the music just worked well. That said, it is an 1-1.5 hours for a full playthrough though I have gone through it twice. I wouldn't call it a rythmn game as such because it doesn't punish you too much and the soundtrack doesn't go bad if you misstime something.

Gris is closer to something like Journey (such a cliche). There platforming and puzzling is very basic but not necessarily bad. As a game about depression, it is all in the presentation and emotion of it.

If you like emotional then I would go Gris, if you like fun and silly and playable I would go Sayonara!

Played the demo of Ori and the Blind Forest. It's very good and I immediately bought the full game when the demo was over. It has a Disney/Nintedo style and charm which I find quite endearing. Felt really weird playing a Microsoft game on a Nintendo console.
