@Qwertyninty, as previously suggested, Okami HD is $20 and is really fantastic.

@SKTTR I don't have the game or the bongos, but I have heard that they will work.

@RR529 yeah ended up getting mark of the ninja remastered. Pretty good so far.

@Qwertyninty so you asked for suggestions and then went and bought a game that nobody suggested but yourself?
Okay then

@Coach_A yeah this wasn’t my only source of research. Sorry that doesn’t sit well with you. Enjoying the game though.

Thanks all for the feedback re Disgea 5 vs XC2. After reading through again, reading a few (more) reviews and numerous other threads it was coin toss territory for the longest time!

Happy to announce that i’ve taken the plunge though and XC2 + Torna are safely downloading as I write/you read - the few people on here championing XC2 & the expansion I think made the difference in the end so thank you. Unless I hate it. Then something else

Just got to finish RDR2 and stop playing Diablo (no easy feat) & then I can set about tackling this beast!

@BrainOfGrimlock Good choice, I think you'll enjoy it. ^-^ Do yourself a favour and play Torna after you've finished the main story. Or there won't be even a hint of mystery left to unravel.

@bluemage1989 @Hallonblad thanks both! Played a cheeky half hour and so far, so good but admittedly (very) early days! I grabbed Torna too given the glowing praise i’ve seen from others so all being well i’ll defin blast through it afterwards!

You thinking in terms of “The Lost Child’ or Coven of Dusk?

RPG, FPS, Adventure,Action...oh I like 'em all!

@Swordsman83 I mentioned this in another thread where you raised this discussion too, but isn't Pokemon considered a (quality AAA) turn based jrpg as well?

@Swordsman83 Cosmic Star Heroine is good, cheap and often overlooked? Undertale is cheap too and as i’m sure you’ve seen, almost universally loved?

Battlechasers: Nightware would be my pick otherwise; a little pricier but worth it by all accounts. Otherwise you have things like South Park/Earthlock/Lost Sphear/I am Setsuna etc.

Edit: Scratch the Battlechasers suggest - very next thread I read had you saying you’ve played it already

It is one too. does it support pro controller ? No pro controller is a deal breaker for me.

Battlechasers is certainly not a bad game. It has a nice battle system, the story might be pretty standard but it has some great humour and I do like how it plays cleverly on some jrpg tropes (your 'tank' character is actually your healer as an example) but I do feel Airship Syndicate are still finding there feet as a studio and that whatever comes next from the studio will massively improve on every aspect. Battlechasers would recieve a 7/10 from me but definitely a studio to watch going forward.

I've become interested in the Neo Geo games on Switch, but aside from Metal Slug and King of Fighters, I'm actually not too familiar with most of them.

Could some of you guys who have a bunch of them give me a top 5 list or something of your personal favorites?

its not bad for the 1st playthrough though but towards the end somehow i lost interest. the super slow pace on the overworld map and can't avoid enemies in dungeon.

new game plus totally no interest at all.

@Swordsman83 yeah I think most people would echo that comment. Like I said I think there next game will blow this out of the water.
