@NintendoByNature Not sure if they truly qualify as AAA or what even does qualify, but the 3 games are Dragon Quest XI, Mario Maker 2, and Dragon Quest Builders 2.

There are no other upcoming games I really want as of right now.

Am I the only one that truly doesn’t class games as indie or AAA anymore? Like, I just think if I like it or not.

This is how I was, up until a few years ago. Then the gap between the two started to get a lot wider and they started offering pretty different experiences.

@Ralizah Yeah, that's me; 10/10 description!

@subpopz I love me some good wonk & jank; Shadow of the Colossus, Super Mario Sunshine, The Last Guardian, etc.

I get what you're saying though. It doesn't really mind me personally.

@ReaderRagfish I think those are triple A. At least I think so. Aside from snowboard kids 😉, what type of games/ genre do you like?

The AAA game I'm most looking forward to this year is Halo Reach.

@NintendoByNature You can get a rough idea by looking at ratings I gave to the games added to my profile, it's semi up to date.

Anyone else playing Darksiders? The game looks fantastic and runs phenomenally on Switch. I especially appreciate the performance mode and high-quality mode options.

Unfortunately, I feel like I’m becoming one of those gamers that can tell the difference between 30fps and 60fps. I started playing in high-quality mode and it looked so freaking good, and ran without a single hiccup. It was pure bliss and all was right in the world. Then I tried the performance mode, and realized how smooth everything was when the camera was turning. It felt so fluid that I didn’t want to change the mode back...

What’s happening to me? Seriously, what’s wrong with me... I don’t want to be one of those gamers that can’t enjoy 30fps, but for the first time in my life I found myself not wanting to play a game in the quality mode. This is going to ruin games for me and I don’t want games to be ruined. Why has this never bothered me before and then all of a sudden now it feels like this huge difference? It’s not like I haven’t played games at both frame rates many times before.

In any case, Darksiders on the handheld screen is just as excellent as you would imagine. It’s still stunning to see games like this running on a little handheld. I propped that sucker up in tabletop mode and slid my joy con into a grip and starting gaming out in my office today, brought my coworker in to show him the game and now he wants to buy it. Now I can’t wait for Darksiders 2 to come. Bring it on

@NintendoByNature They're probably good games but they don't make me say "I really want that game". At least not yet. I've played previous games in those series and enjoyed them, but not enough to want to drop full price day one.

@ReaderRagfish yea i understand. For me I'm for sure getting Mario maker, astral chain, zelda, Luigis mansion and maybe some other ones depending on how e3 goes. Maybe resident evil origins collection if it gets a discount. Honestly it's a great year for me and games to play on switch. Pokemon fire emblem and animal crossing dont really do it for me though

@EvilLucario I loved XC2's combat... the moment Roc joined the team. Prior to that I did not get it at all. As soon as Vandham showed up I went back and completed all the sidequests I could, cause I was avoiding them up to that point. He was a well established member of my party by the time I actually got to the Olthero Playhouse.

I've historically detested the combat in Xenoblade games. XC1 has tedious position-based combat with an unwieldy arts bar you had to awkwardly manage. XCX made it much worse with a complex combat system that requires you to use skills at a specific time (so-called soul voices) to have a chance at healing. It was also a chore trying to recover your TP for future battles. Also, the stupid arts bar is still present.

XC2's combat is probably the most approachable and manageable system in the entire series. Healing skills are pretty common and reliable. The large variety of blades gives every character plenty of build variety. There's an interesting elemental combo system that you can use to create destructible orbs around stronger enemies for devastating chain attacks. Best of all, though, arts were tied to button presses, allowing for much smoother skill activation. I like the Paper Mario-esque timed button presses for increased damage in battles, too. Combat is still way less intuitive than I'd like, but it didn't really hinder my enjoyment of the game like it did in XCX.

Check out this trailer for Team Sonic Racing. The game is looking slick. It’s apparent they went full “cart racer” for this entry, probably in hopes of chasing higher sales. And that is somewhat regrettable given we have multiple cart racers (Mario Kart, Crash Nitro Racing, Team Sonic Racing) and Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed brought a different spin to the genre which I’d have preferred to see return, but I’d be lying if I said this game didn’t look spectacular.

For fans of handheld gaming, such as Nintendo Switch and GPD Win 2, there is a new player entering the fray

The Smach Z

It’s basically a STEAM Boy. It’s quite literally a Steam controller with a 1080p screen, gyro, 3x the battery of Switch, more powerful than GPD WIN 2 even, and a killer attitude.

I’ll just drop this here for anyone curious

I opt for 60 FPS when offered, and appreciate when devs can get a constant (or near-constant) 60, but it's not tied to my enjoyment of a game. I like my higher frame rates, but I know 30 FPS doesn't equate to “literally unplayable “.

Sonic Team Racing... the lack of other Sega franchises kinda kills my excitement. I know it doesn't really impact whether it has fun gameplay or not, but I'll still miss the variety those other IPs brought to the first two games.

Poor Vectorman and Ristar... they never got their chance.

I would like this to be true, however, most AAA games are now just lootbox hells, not all, but most.
