Well, I'd always recommend FF games... Dragon's Dogma is great, imo, although I haven't finished it yet I'm waiting for a sale on RE4 & REmake, as I don't think they're worth the current prices Not played the others, though

What are people's thoughts on Little Nightmares? It's 70% off on the eShop right now and it's a game I've been interested in, but I've already spent so much in the past 2 weeks that I really don't need another game. Is this a must get at only $9, or is it merely pretty good? And is there a physical version in the US, because I'm confused by Amazon's listings when I looked it up.

Has anyone played both Trailblazers and Horizon Chase Turbo? There is a great review on HCT and many seems to like it but is Trailblazers any good? I've heard it's a bit like splatoon (which I love) and I'm really into co-op. Which one would you recommend?

Aside from Mario Maker 2, are there any games currently out that you all would recommend as good games. Not looking for indie games so much. I have a ton of those already.

Hmm, a highly subjective question. Any genre in particular? My default recommendation is always Bayonetta 1 & 2. My GotY choices for 2010 and 2014 respectively. You just don't get action games like these very often anymore.

Graveyard Keeper, yes or no? I'll start of by saying that, I prefer to buy games physically, so if you think it'll release physically, I'd rather wait.

About the game itself, I don't mind grinding and can even get joy out of a bit of grinding (like grinding characters to higher levels in (J)RPG's). The graphics look very good to me and I love games like Stardew Valley. Any thoughts? ^^'

Only if you're a diehard RE fan, or you somehow haven't played it on the myriad of other platforms it had previously been ported to. But it is the best portable version of RE4. Though I'm not sure how much portability factors into your game selecting decisions. Personally, I think RE5 is the better game (an emphasis on co-op, rpg-like equipment progression, etc), but I'm sure some would consider that opinion blasphemous.

Hi friends.

I recently got myself a Nintendo Switch and am looking for a good single player game, with a good story, strategy and puzzles and not over complicated (e.g. easy inventory management, etc). I played the original Shenmue for Dreamcast and absolutely loved it. Is there anything remotely similar to it for Switch?

Many thanks in advance,
Brandas

Hmm, strategy, puzzles, adventure, and a story? That's a unique blend of genres. I think you'll have a hard time finding a game that'll meet that criteria. Perhaps you should consider the action/adventure genre? Okami, Darksiders, etc.

There are very few games with strategy elements that aren't tactical rpg games (The Banner Saga, Disgaea, Mario + Rabbids, etc). Civilization VI is the only 4X game on Switch. Expand, explore, exploit, exterminate. That might be what you're looking for.

Let's say that I have only played the original game like ages ago.
Right now, in the european eshop the prices are the following:
-RE : 19.79
-RE 0: 19.79
-RE 4: 19.79
-RE revelations: 11.99
-RE revelations 2: 14.99

Which one would you recommend?

$20 is still overpriced for a digital copy of any RE game as they often go on sale for $5-$7 on the PlayStation Store. Still, if Switch is your preferred platform, RE Revelations is reasonably priced. I thought it was amazing when I first played it back in 2012. Neither RE0 nor RE Rev 2 are essential gaming. Neither are bad games, just...easily forgettable.

For anyone looking for a good open-world game with a great storyline and memorable characters then I would suggest Xenoblade Chronicles 2! There are many huge open-world "Titans" you explore during the game that have tons of collectibles and monsters. There are a whopping 14 hours of cutscenes during the main story line and a couple hours more of cutscenes for blade quests. This game takes a couple hundred hours to 100% as there is a NG+ mode as well, and it's definitely a great game that you can sink in a ton of time into without even realizing it! It's by far one of the best games on the Switch and I highly recommend checking it out!

Feel free to search up the plot of the game if this interests any of you.

I agree I have finished the main story once, last year. I am going to do a re-play soon...and really dig into a lot of the side quests and stuff to do along with the Torna expansion.

@scubydo Yessss, the Torna expansion is amazing. One of the most action packed endings I've seen in any type of DLC. Well worth imo.

Okay, so I am looking for a good Micro SD card around 400-500 GB...but I need a cheaper price. Any recommendations?

Hey guys, I noticed on the shop that Disgaea 1, The Labyrinth of Refrain, The Lost Child, and The Caligula Effect are on sale. Are they worth grabbing? I enjoyed D5 and I enjoyed the Etrian series, so I know Labyrinth and The Lost Child are similar...and Caligula I noticed has a lot of decent reviews as a "Persona" clone. Any thoughts on if it would be worth getting these at these prices?? Some of them are almost over half off.
