Ya, said it from the start... best to hold off. Even if it didn’t have the 16-bit mode, orchestral soundtrack, dual audio or exclusive content, just getting 2 versions in 1 (basically the PS4 version for console and a way better version than 3DS for handheld) was enough to make it worthwhile on Switch. But all that other stuff just seals the deal even more (especially the soundtrack and 16-bit mode).

Radiant Historia. I’ll raise a cup to that one (well, to all of them, but very rarely do I speak to someone who even knows what that game is- it was the last 3DS game I played in fact).

@JaxonH Oh? You played the 3DS version? Was it worth getting it again? I mean, as much as I love the game, I couldn't see why I'd buy a second version for my 3DS when the DS version is perfectly playable still.

Ya, I’d say stick with the DS version. I had it on DS, but had never played it, so I wanted the upgrade. Looks nice on 3DS though.

Thanks for the heads up. I just redeemed 60 points for Zelda. I somehow missed it until now! Not to mention all my later purchases. I’ve not redeemed any previously!

I would be thrilled if it became the best selling version in the west. But that’s what worries me. It just seems like nobody cares, at all. Dragon Quest seems much more aligned with Xenoblade or Final Fantasy than YS VIII. I expected to at least see as much interest as Xenoblade or Fire Emblem. Kind of a “1-2 million seller”.

That's exactly what's worrying me. I really couldn't get into Xenoblade, so people comparing this game to that kinda takes away my hype. I'll give it an honest chance once it arrives though.

Part of the problem is that I still own XC2. I should probably sell that, because as long as it's on my shelf I have the feeling I should finish that before starting another (J)RPG, which probably won't happen.

@toiletduck I think he was referring more to the kind of crowd it would attract rather than how it actually plays.

And if not, then I really don't understand why people would call the two similar, as Dragon Quest and Xenoblade are pretty far apart as JRPGs go these days.

@toiletduck Just to second what @ReaderRagfihs said...I've not played DQXI, but based on my experience with DQ...DQ and Xenoblade couldn't be more different. Xenoblade is very much a modern RPG whereas DQ is traditional and turn-based.

That said, I personally vastly prefer Xenoblade to the DQ series.

For anyone interested in the game, Smite is free to play now. Well, not sure if it is right now but it's supposed to go f2p sometime today.

I didn't mean it played like Xenoblade.

I meant a similar notariety and breadth of appeal.

FYI Amazon has DQXI S, Astral Chain, and Mario Maker 2 available for a bit of a discount. Not nearly as good as their prime preorder discounts used to be, but it helps for those of us who live in areas with high sales taxes.

DQ and Astral Chain will likely be physical purchases for me, as I could see them getting pretty large. If I get Mario Maker, though, I'll download it, as I'll want it with me wherever I go. Ditto for Animal Crossing and Pokemon.

Ugh goddamn it. I should probably get them on physical since my 128 GB card is almost completely filled up, but I don't pay taxes because I set my location to a place without sales tax lol.

Not sure if I want Mario Maker as a physical or digital though. If the single-player is good enough I'll get it digital, but if the single-player is like it was for Mario Maker 1, I'm just getting it physical because I'm running out of space.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

Finally got around to playing the Daemon X Machina demo. There's definitely something there. Wouldn't necessarily surprise me if the game got delayed after taking the feedback into account.

I’ve been saying that. ‘Retooling in response to feedback’ gives them the perfect excuse to move something out of a ridiculously crowded second half of 2019.

@IceClimbers I kind of hope it does get delayed. They have a lot they need to add and that framerate NEEDS to be optimized. I dont think they can do all that before a Summer release.

I dont think Switch is as capable with UE4 as we think. Daemon x Machina doesnt run great, Fortnite just...jesus, and even Yoshi only hits 60fps with a resolution thats below 720p when docked, and incredibly low resolution depth of field effects.

We mag need to temper our expectations. Remember Epic forced the full version of an engine they made for PC years ago onto a mobile chipset.

I looked alright in handheld mode; haven't seen it docked yet. Maybe it's just the demo.
