Well, the hype was there, people bought it, it was a remaster, and now they beat it. Makes sense that hype would disappear. Even for the Switch version since we have no new info regarding when it's even coming.

So...new trailer out, shows off the X Challenge and there is an interesting tidbit.

The X5 Mavericks use their Japanese names.

My favourite part was when Neon Tiger clung to the tiny wall that is the side of the platform immersed in lava, while shooting Ray Splashers not even remotely aimed at X.

Alone, a force. Together, a force of nature.

For anyone wondering why the UK doesn't have a very high Nintendo presence, behold a tweet from a branch of our only game retailer on the high street.

Yep, Crash Bandicoot comes out this Friday on PS4 and Xbox One. Its been on one for a year and no mention of the other two platforms.

I’m loving Fortnite in handheld mode. I played the game once at a friends house, didn’t think much of it. But now, playing it curled up on the bench is a game changer. Probably my new favorite game playing in handheld mode. Love it!

Well, someone at that GAME Store obviously doesn't like Nintendo. Either that or the intern got the job of social media. The comments are pretty much doing their job for them in correcting it.

@Spanjard I find it great for playing while watching the World Cup. I tend to bide my time when playing solo, so it's quite easy to split my attention between the TV and the Switch.

Got Ys VIII in the mail today. It really does have a beautiful box. Haven't actually played it yet, but I did make sure to download the Day One update.

Also went ahead and downloaded the DK DLC for Mario + Rabbids for $15. Can't wait to try that out soon!

Meanwhile, I'm 31 hours deep into Hollow Knight and still have a ton of stuff to do in it. The game really is underpriced. I think I'll probably try and finish the game soon, though, so I can move on to my other purchases. I can always come back and unlock the DLC content later.

For the first time in 2018, I feel like I have a ton of stuff to play on the system again. Haven't even gotten to the Octopath demo yet!

Trying to decide if I should get Ys. I preordered it but the card that I use for preorders has limited funds (on purpose) and i had two books that had no release date get pushed up and take the funds for Ys. I've got the cash but I just bought the lost child...and I have a bit of a back log (still working on kirby and battle chasers night war.) Thoughts?

@Ryu_Niiyama Normally I'd advise people to just buy the game down the line, as they'll always be there, and usually at a cheaper price, but that just hasn't been true for other versions of Ys VIII. The PS4/Vita versions are expensive and difficult to find now in the U.S. So, if you want it physically, I'd get it ASAP.

If you don't mind downloading it, though, you might as well wait.

Ys VIII's physical goodies are pretty nice. I just got it as well, just updating all my stuff and I'll be giving it a good play tonight. Can't wait!

I'd heard the handheld performance is questionable and, in fairness, it supposedly gets worse in more demanding environments on the island, but so far the game looks native res. Very nice on the Switch's beautiful 720p display.

Crazy thing is I bet switch sales are higher then both

I went to GameStop to pick up my Ys preorder and they hadn’t even ordered it. They referred me to a nearby store that had received one copy... it’s a shame but I feel like no one is going to know this game exists except the fans.

On the bright side, I’m enjoying it so far. Reminds me of the ps2 era rpgs, in a good way.

The general GAME store Facebook - so I'd assume Twitter as well - got it right with the platforms.
That store-specific post was obviously made by someone who doesn't care about details.

Did South Park: TFBW ever get its game-breaking bugs patched?

Oddly, my Ys preorder on Amazon got delayed. Usually they ship preorders so I get it on launch day, but they informed me via email this morning there was a delay and it couldn't actually be shipped until today.
Wonder if the release was botched up in some way.
