I recommend 3 of my new games.

Reigns: Kings & Queens

If you like easy-to-learn turn-based decision-making games, this one is quite an interesting one. Stay alive as a king or queen by making the right (and wrong) decisions to keep the church, the army, the people, and the money in balance. There are plenty of quests to solve and even items to find and use. At some points events take place that can change the dynamics of the gameplay, and you can even come across light dungeon crawling bits. If you die then your soul and items are simply transfered to the next king/queen. The game has 2 saves per profile, one for the story of the kings and one for the story of the queens.

Swords & Soldiers

In this super fun 2D tower defense game you play a horde of viking barbarian barbecue fanatics (before unlocking other completely different campaigns such as Chinese and Aztecs). The game is easy to learn because of the natural progression of stages and introduction of new elements. And those hilarious vikings really make you wonder what's coming up next. The Switch version has the 30 main levels + a new camapign that wasn't in the Wii, 3DS, and Wii U versions. Achievements, and 2p versus splitscreen round off a really neat package. And the sequel comes to Switch soon as well.

The Way Remastered

This was on sale for under one buck. And man, this game is pretty good. What started like a stealth-platformer, turned into a shooter, and then into a metroidvania with lots of puzzles. The story is about a scientist trying to bring his dead girlfriend back to life. With all the clues he has, he breaks into a facility to steal a spaceship and travel to a distant planet. The coherent, breathing world is rarely affected by parts that could have used a bit more polish. Fair gameplay (regular checkpoints), a good soundtrack, and no loading times round up a pretty solid action-adventure.

@tidus Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is my top pick for any RPG. Valkyria Chronicles is also a great pick, but it's more strategy than RPG.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

Hopefully this is the right place to post since I've been away from the boards for so long.

How is the game Figment I'm thinking of getting it from the eshop while it's on sale.

Hi guys I just finished Last Window, the sequel to Hotel Dusk and I would love to get to play more games of this genre. I know about cold case for 3ds, will definitely give it a shot. Are there hard boiled adventure games for switch? I've already bought and completed Grim Fandango. Return of the Obra Dinn's artstyle doesn't appeal to me.

So I'm going out to Best Buy today to pick up two games since I still have GCU. One is NSMBUD and the other one, I'm not sure yet. There are a few that I want to pick up and can't decide. It's between:

Pokemon Let's go Pikachu- Haven't played a Pokemon game since Black on the DS. And I love the gen 1 Pokemon. Would be a nice trip down memory lane. And it comes with a free Steelbook if I buy it from Best Buy.

Bayonetta - Always wanted to play Bayonetta. I watched a playthrough of Bayonetta 1 and it looked fun. It would also get me into the mood for Bayonetta 3 and DMCV

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze - I'm looking at this because even though I have a Wii U, I never played this game. It would go nicely with NSMBUD since they're so similar

Yooka-Laylee - It's made by the people who made Banjo & Kazooie and when it was being shown off, it looked great. Been wanting a Banjo like game for awhile now, and this looks like it's as close it's going to get.

Which one do you guys think?

I'm thinking about buying these Metroidvania games Sundered and Hunter's Legacy: Purrfect Edition while they're on sale how are they?

@Avenger I would say Bayonetta based on your thoughts of it. I wouldn’t really recommend Yooka just because it’s not a great game, just an okay collectathon, but other than that all of those would be great choices.

@HeroOfCybertron You can’t really go wrong with Metroidvanias. I would still recommend Hollow Knight or Forma.8 over those if you are willing to spend a little.

@Avenger Bayonetta is the best choice of them imo. DKC is also another one, but being another platformer you might get burned out if you get that alongside New Super Mario Bros. U.

So I'm kind of interested in trying out puzzle/mystery games, and well, since Ace Attorney Trilogy is coming out soon, do you think it's good for a starter of the genre?

(To note, I managed to play through first 2 cases of Miles Edgeworth without cracking open walkthrough, the rest I need walkthrough. And I was unable to even finish first case of Apollo Justice... had to open walkthrough too for that one)

So... think it's good idea to pick the trilogy?

looking for something to scratch my Zelda itch. BOTW was an excellent open world game, but when the last game I played was TP with all its excellent dungeons, and BOTW had nothing... anybody know any great challenging action/adventure/puzzle games? nothing very bloody/violent please

Hi, would anyone be able to recommend a good RPG for switch? I've been looking at Tales of Vesperia but I don't know if it suits my tastes. I generally hate standard, grindy JRPGs. To give you an idea, I tried Bravely Default years ago and could not play it for more than 2 hours. Turn-based is ok, even SRPGs like Fire Emblem are fine.

What do you guys think?

@Hyperpuma Would recommend Octopath if you don’t have it already or the Final Fantasy rereleases. Other than that, Wargroove.

@Arbor I remember Blossom Tales was said to have been a great Zelda clone, but that’s just based on reviews and whatnot. I had a great time with Oceanhorn on my phone, which is a more traditional Zelda clone. I would recommend it on Switch if you can handle the price hike.

Octopath is very grindy though... Especially if you want to kill last boss

@Hyperpuma Valkyria Chronicles is a great strategy RPG. Though it's more strategy than RPG.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 doesn't require any grind unless going for side content, where it can get grindy.

@darkfenrir The first three Ace Attorney games are classics of the adventure game genre and should be experienced by everyone who is open to that sort of experience. They're about as ideal as you can get to "gateway games" for the genre, due to their broad accessibility.

@Ralizah Aaah, alright then, I guess time to save up for the Trilogy (still unsure on Switch or Steam, but I guess I'm picking this up)

My sisters LOVE Ace Attorney. It's probably the first video game series my younger sister got into on her own accord and not just something I played.

I only did Case 1 of the first game, but it was really clicking with me. I should ask her for her copy to play...
