@Ralizah Oh gosh, that is a beautiful deal. Will definitely keep my ear to the ground on deals. Eventually went with adding funds via the website, which was surprisingly smooth and I didn’t have to leave my card details on file, CDkeys was only offering a pound off 15 so it made more sense at this time to add a tenner directly. Thanks again for your advice 👍

That gum you like is going to come back in style!

Got Super Mario RPG installed and ready to go!

Really looking forward to it. I’ve never played the original, so it’ll be a new experience for me.

Think I must be near the end of Bravely Default, since I’m basically at the Earth Crystal. I say that, but all I’ve heard are horror stories about the game refusing to end.

@Ralizah I have now realised my error. I can’t believe they expect me to just play the game again 😂

@nessisonett I'm not sure you quite grasp the sheer scale of BS the game is preparing to put you through. The middle-to-late game of Bravely Default is basically the gaming world's version of Haruhi Suzumiya's "Endless Eight" arc.

It's a shame, because the final hours of the game are superb. Fantastic music, epic boss fights, subversive twists, cool gimmicks that make great use of the 3DS hardware... but getting there is such a slog!

Also, as I recall, there's a really annoying difficulty spike in Ch. 5.

Apologies if this theory has been mooted before, but I was thinking yesterday - I love TOTK, it’s one of the best games ever made IMO. But is it really representative of years of effort? Same world, same engine.. I believe lots of it would have been developed as BOTW DLC also, at least conceptually. I say this to say, is there a good chance development of the NEXT Zelda could actually be a lot further along than you might think, if they had resources to spare? Could we get get a new Zelda as soon as 2025, and a trailer to go with a Switch 2 announcement? I mean I expect them to come out the gate with a new 3D Mario and Mario Kart but would a new Zelda perhaps not be far behind?

@kyleforrester87 Interesting you say same world, same engine, as dataminers found it's actually NOT the same engine, which would explain some things like the better fidelity and level of detail plus new interactions.

The Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy actually looks pretty good. They’ve had to make some compromises to get it running, but it definitely looks playable.

@kyleforrester87 There's so much stuff in the game, and they pretty much re-made the overworld content as well. And all the time needed to get the building stuff to comply with the physics systems...

I could believe it took them a long time.

Games without a tenth of those interactions take years to make, after all.

@Bentleyma Wow, no wonder the port took so long. They simplified a lot of the geometry and made it not fully open world.

Well, glad they made some hard choices to get it running well enough.

really hope they remake and re-release mario hoops 3-on-3 for switch one day . unfortunately the game wasn’t as popular/successful which is crazy to me because back in the day in my area every kid had a DS & hoops 3-on-3, it was like a system seller. it deserves another chance with online support!

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The final boss just refused to die! I really enjoyed it, but I don’t think I’ll be getting the DLC. I’ll definitely be picking up Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 at some point. Now to play Super Mario RPG!

I am at peace with Bravely Default. The more I play of the second world, the more I appreciate what they’re going for. It’s definitely an interesting experiment in what happens if devs just fully disregard their players and do what they want instead. Really don’t trust that little rat fairy though, I’m getting suspicious.

@nessisonett There's so much I want to say, but I won't, for obvious reasons. Just keep pressing on and reporting back lol.

The back half of the game is fascinating. Especially closer to the end.

@Ralizah lol I really do like the Fairy Flies/Airy Lies bit they do with the title though, that was the nuts

Did you play Bravely Second? I have got (perhaps over) half way through a couple of times but run out of steam.. not exactly sure why as I really like it, in many ways more than 1. Think I might charge my 3DS up later.
