@scubydo I'm just waiting for Cross Code, Persona 5S and Dragon Quest XI to come to Switch... That'll be enough RPGs for the year - although I'll likely have to get Pokemon Shield. And maybe Fire Emblem.

As for new stuff that's actually, you know, out, I've heard good things about Hob, but that's not a personal recommendation. It's on my list, though.

Yeah, there is so much coming out, I am not sure what is good and what is being rushed...

Just bought a Switch and I currently already have Diablo 3, Dead Cells, Road Redemption, Nuclear Throne, and Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle.

I have $20 left in funds for the eShop and I'm down to choosing either one of these games:

a) Fast RMX
b) Marble it Up
c) I Hate Running Backwards
d) Pulstar & Blazing Star together
e) Save up and get Hands of Fate 2

Any one of the above you'd recommend?

I honestly feel that something like Maplestory, Albion online or Runescape is missing from the switch. I've been longing to scratch that (online) grind itch, but I can't seem to find a suitable game on switch to do that. The likes of disgea 5 or JRPGS are not really in my ballpark either (even though FF World Maxima gave me some entertainment). It doesn't even have to be an MMO, just a grindy game that makes me feel like the grind is worth it would be amazing (when I was younger Pokémon did this, as reaching level 100 was quite prestiges).

Any suggestions? Or opinions on a game like Albion online / Runescape / Maplestory coming to switch?

Edit: I own Diablo III, and though it is a great game, I'm looking for something new

@Cissero I loved old school and classic runescape. Every skill level was earned with hard grind. I think there may be a gap for this on switch if they allow a more appropriate communication. Me and a friend were talking about why Pokemon is not among a mmo setting by now. It would be surreal. Or am I missing something?

@Benjoo exactly, i just miss a game with such a rewarding level grind on Switch. I know these kinds of games are not for everyone, but personally I would find it highly relaxing. That's why I.m.o. a game like Maplestory would work so well. Kill a bunch of stuff, level up, compare yourself with others on the leaderboard, have a ton of abilities for each class from which you can map 4-5 to match your prefered playstyle, and have some (daily) dungeons to give the 'community feel'. I'd be all in for it, and I would happily drop 30-40~ euro's on a game like that.

A Pokémon mmo is a dream of many people, I'm afraid we'll have to wait for that a while longer tho.

You could spend thousands of hours in that game and you'll have gotten nowhere.

@Cissero Monster Hunter. You don't grind for levels, you grind for parts to make cool gear by fighting giant beasts. And the combat is so fun, it never gets tedious, especially online.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

@ReaderRagfish I've gotten this suggestion a lot, guess I'll dive into it and give it a fair shot Thanks!

So for a JRPG, what is one that is recommended at the moment? Or forthcoming in the next week or so? I have XENOBLADE 2 and Torna, so that one is in my library all ready, just fyi.

@HeroOfCybertron i heard that Feudal Alloy doesnt live up to the expectations. To me it looks very cool and I do want to try it out tho. I'm planning to read some more reviews before buying tho.

I'll probably get yelled at with really loud voices but I tried BOTW on Saturday and really didn't like it at all. The graphics were great and the concept seemed great but I just found myself bored after a while. I played for 5 hours straight and all I did was walk around for 5 hours. I beat the first 4 shrines to finally learn more about the game and why I was playing it but I just lost interest quickly. There wasn't enough story to really keep me going. So I did a chat with nintendo asking about a possible refund. I didn't figure I'd get it, but they did! I think they felt pity on me since I lost the Switch for 2 weeks due to a repair. So now I have a $60 credit. We might try Mario Odyssey next. It's probably just me and my family, maybe we just prefer goofier games like MK8D. We've had a good time with that one. Just my 2 cents anyways.

What about the first zelda on NES? it didnt really have that much story either

Hey guys, looking for a new game to dive into! Hoping for a little help!

Here are the games I have played: Breath Of The Wild, Super Smash Bros, Splatoon 2, Most of the free games.

Here is what I am excited about: Link's Awakening, My Time at Portia, New Pokemon Title, New Pikmin Title, Cuphead.

Here is what I am not really interested in right now: Turn Based battle games, Scrollers (some exceptions), 8-bit games (some exceptions, such as StarDew Valley which I have on my phone), some of the newer mario titles like Mario Kart, Toad's Adventure, etc. I have debated on Mario Odyssey, but not sure if it will scratch my current Itch. I have also debated Let's Go Pikachu, but I am not an avid GO! player and not sure how I would enjoy the whole not battling to catch pokemon and instead just throwing balls at them..

So! That is where I am at! Let me know what you might suggest! Thanks!

ARMS and Monster boy are really good games

At $20, and with Pulstar/Blazing Star on your list, I insist you consider Ikaruga instead. There are several shmups available that are what I'd consider to be "swimming in 7s." The shmups from Psikyo and East Asia Soft. There are even a few 8s, such as Blazing Star (that slowdown though). But Ikaruga is a 9 in my book, a must-play in the genre.

Hey guys, I know this has probably been asked a hundred times already - I'm looking for a game to sink hours of exploration/progress into after finishing BotW. Preferably an RPG adventure, but I'm not sure if I'd like the deeper/more complex ones like Skyrim.

Right now it's likely between Monster Hunter, Dark Souls, Darksiders, My time at Portia, or Ittle Dew 2. Open to any other suggestions.

The main thing I'm looking for is exploration and item hunting, as well as puzzles. I hear Darksiders is great for this but the puzzles are very simple and the game is currently overpriced in my region ($50 in Australia).

Dark Souls looks very appealing but watching footage of it looks like it hasn't aged well (never played it before). The combat looks slow and repetitive, the visuals are dark and uninviting, and the animations unpolished. I could be wrong though.

To say thanks, I'll provide a mini verdict of some of the games I've played so far in case it helps anyone.

So here's my verdict on the games I've bought so far in case anyone is interested.

Blaster Master Zero - not a good buy unless you're a fan of the originals. The controls are terrible, the platforming not fun at all, directional shooting is near impossible, and the visuals/sound/UI are too old for their own good.

Celeste - a must-buy. Great example of retro style done right. Classic platforming with plenty of gameplay depth, tight controls, and an original story that any modern-day adult can relate to as opposed to the usual mythical stuff.

Enter the Gungeon - OK if you want something for pick-up-and-play, but don't expect too much. The level and item randomization is too inconsistent. Sometimes you get a gun/item that makes you unstoppable, other times you get junk. Enjoying the game and progressing seems to be a matter of luck.

RIVE - good but very unfairly challenging at times. Requires a lot of unavoidable deaths just to figure out what to do. The controls are very good but shooting just feels a little off at times, which is crucial for a game this fast-paced.

Mario Odyssey, BoTW & Smash - not without their flaws, but definitely must-plays. They're on sale now as well so picking them up for the current price is a great deal.

That's easy, I highly recommend Yonder. It's a collectathon/adventure/sim-lite game. There's zero combat, with gameplay being primarily busy work. The game has quite a large world to explore and the atmosphere is pretty chill.

Thanks, I'll definitely keep that one on my list. It looks amazing but it sounds a little too laid back and repetitive by the reviews - ie no risk of dying, no leveling up etc. Would be good to see how it compares to Portia or Stardew Valley in terms of the crafting and farming elements.
