@Knuckles-Fajita I've played the game several times. I know what you're talking about. But it's kinda spoiling the moment for someone who openly says they're playing it for the first time.

And I disagree. Whilst the first hour is an absolute slog, the game picks up after that and gets better over time.

Careful guys. Don't discuss games on a gaming forum.

I think some people just enjoy the attention of being 'that guy' don't let others consistent misery get in the way of your own optimism.

Hell no. I'd rather be dead and forgotten than noticed by you lot. Peace and quiet.

(That's sarcasm, in case you couldn't tell. You're all lovely.)

I have an opinion. You may not like it, but it's mine. This is a place to voice that. Free internet. Get used to it.

I like to my think my lack of optimism is simply a different view point on things. For some people it's hard to always be hyped for something and always super excited for the next thing, so I don't try. I'm too laconic. I am excited for things I just...don't particularly voice that opinion. The most you get is a "That's cool" and I move on with my life until release when I will return and enjoy the experience in question.

@Knuckles-Fajita your more than entitled to your opinion feel free to voice it like we all do just saying the whole doom and gloom thing gets a bit old after a while.

There's a lot to be optimistic about with Nintendo these days just think it's important to remember that when everyone sees the same people complaining on an daily basis.

@bluemage1989 exactly! Not every post has to snarky and negative and complaining and combative. Sure not everything is perfect and always the way you want but damn find some enjoyment sometimes. I'm not some polliana always sunshine and roses type of person but just don't let EVERYTHING bother you is all I'm saying.

@bluemage1989 @redd214 Personally, I am excited about Dark Souls, and Spyro (Delays aside...) and of course, Smash Bros.

I just don't vocalise that.

@Knuckles-Fajita you should more is all we're saying. Focus more on what you like instead of constantly focusing on everything you don't

I sound like a motivational speaker lol

@redd214 You're asking a lot of someone who spent years of his life being beaten up for that you know

@Knuckles-Fajita That review of Ys VIII you wrote was a pleasant read. You were so positive and enthusiastic about it! There's a very pretty smile underneath that grumpy exterior, Mr. Fajita.

Knuckles-Fajita

@Ralizah Well, Ys is a very special game.

@Knuckles-Fajita I enjoyed it, too. I wish Monolith Soft would take notes on the ways its various systems harmonize and feed into one-another.

@Ralizah When I'm doing indie impressions pieces or reviews, I tend to be a lot more articulate with how I write. The piece I did on Tiny Hands Adventure actually reached the developers, because we talk to each other a lot, and they are using it for patch improvements.

With my articles...I write it because I want to. Not because I have to, if that makes sense. If something needs praising, I will without question shower it with love.

Now I hope I dont need to add that I sent my friend a copy of Ys VIII as payment for getting me Mega Man 11

I was a bit negative in my own review of Ys that I wrote for my friends here, but overall I had a blast with it. Might be a top 5 RPG by the end of the Switch's lifecycle for me.

@EvilLucario I mostly agree with your criticisms, although I had no issue with Adol being a sort of "blank slate" who merely projects heroism and functions as the link between the player and the rest of the game. Silent protagonists don't bother me, and I'll gladly take one of those over one who never shuts up, like Nathan Drake.

It's also kind of funny that you did almost nothing but flash guards because I'm sort of the opposite. I think I might have accidentally triggered a couple of flash guards here and there, but overall I just got good at reliably flash moving instead. Probably not co-incidentally, I'm great at dodging in BotW but can't parry to save my life.

I'm a little sad that the game eventually abandoned the meta of discovering the secrets of this cursed isle to become yet another game where you have to thwart fate and kill God (or some other authoritative supernatural entity), but I still think the setting and Metroidvanian progression structure are both pretty interesting for the genre.

For me, the likeable (if shallow) characters, great music, solid, addictive combat, fun exploration, and the way the game's various progression systems gracefully come together are what got me so into it.

@Ralizah I'm just personally not a fan of silent protagonists. So a silent protagonist can swing either way depending on the person. I don't mind silent protagonists as much when it's like a "real role-playing" game, like Dark Souls (kinda) and Pokemon and I can customize my character, but the feeling is still there and it's not something I can really toss aside completely. That said, I recognize it's just an inherent bias to me so others may not mind it, and if I'm having fun with the story and gameplay I can overlook it.

As for Flash Dodges/Guards, my main problem with Flash Dodges was that the timing to activate them seemed REALLY off and I could never trigger them consistently. Something about them felt really broken for some reason, which is weird because like you I pretty much do nothing but dodging in BotW (though I do parry un-Perfect Dodgable attacks) and especially Dark Souls (I'm god-awful at parrying in Dark Souls lmao). What's funny is that when I brought it up with other people, a few had the opposite problem where they never used Flash Guards but always used Flash Dodges. I don't know if either of us messed up the timing or whatever, but who knows.

This right here is really why I love the game overall at the end of the day; the overall experience mixing everything really makes the game super, super good. Hell, due to having no money system, a wide array of difficulty options, comparatively short game length to other modern contemporaries, and similar enough real-time combat to hack-and-slash games, it might be a really good entry point into modern JRPGs.

Hm. Langrisser I & II remakes announced for Switch and PS4.

https://gematsu.com/2018/08/langrisser-i-ii-full-remakes-anno...

Uh... I have never heard of these games before. They're apparently old Genesis games that are tactical RPGs? Hm... might need to keep an eye on this.

@EvilLucario I'm disappointed that they replaced Satoshi Urushihara as the artist. His work is gorgeous (shame 95% of it is only seen in smut).

Seems pretty likely that when Kimishima said about unannounced 2018 games, he was mostly talking about the large wave of 3rd party games. Well that and Labo.

Speaking of which here's another, Football Manager 2019 Touch is coming to Switch in November.
