Just a reminder to those interested in picking up the 2K games announced in the Direct Mini physically, you need lots of microSD card space. 41.6GB for Borderlands, maximum of 24GB for XCOM and probably around 30-40GB for Bioshock given only 1 is on the 16GB cart.

After watching the Japanese broadcast of the most recent Direct mini is looks as though Shiren the Wanderer is coming to Switch. Pretty cool, Shiren the Wanderer is arguable the best in the mystery dungeon genre.

Finished Steins Gate Elite(even got all the endings) last night, I have to say what a cruel journey. Worth the slow burn in the beginning, well with this game knocked out of my backlog, I can finally try out Fire Emblem Three Houses.

I've died, there is no more me.

If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end.

I'm reading Roadside Picnic & The second novel of The Saga of Tanya The Evil. Also, patiently waiting for issue 10 of The Saga of Tanya The Evil.

Between the Direct Mini and other games like Shantae and the Seven Sirens it feels like the gaming industry believes the week beginning May 25th is when the lockdowns end.

@Grumblevolcano I have it on good authority that this whole thing will be resolved by Easter.

What happened to Squadron 51 by Loomiarts? That game looked amazing and has been missing for well over a year

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

If it's not officially ended by the then, I think the general public will unofficially end it. People will refuse to keep this up for more than 2 months.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

My copy of Animal Crossing should be getting in today. A bit nervous if I'll like it because it was a bit of an impulse buy (never played one before) based on the hype & the fact that I decided to forgo my plan to buy RE: Origins Collection (just don't want to play anything too dark at the moment, what with all going on in the world).

A lot of stuff to look forward to in the future as well. I like the look of Panzer Dragoon, and am looking forward to Shantae, Xenoblade Chronicles DE, and even Clubhouse Games. Of course, if we get through all this I'm sure I'll eventually be in the mood to try going for the RE games again (and DMC).

@Dezzy
I don't disagree with you, but it's a shame some can't see the forest for the trees. (I am biased as I fall into a high-risk group for the virus, and someone in my family recently caught it )

Panzer Dragoon remake is good. But the lack of any save feature is a critical hit against it. I also can’t help but notice how much gyro would help the game feel more modern. Aiming without Gyro with an analog just feels too stiff. It’s 2020. These companies need to get with the times. Thank God for PC were you can actually map gyro to anything. At least most switch games do it but, this one didn’t and that really sucks.

Saints Row 4 is a blast. I know a lot of people said the third game was better but honestly, I’m liking this one so much, I might even rate it higher than SR3. Gyro is in Day One, and it’s just a really fun game. Vulgar at times, so if you’re anything like me you’ll have to overlook that, but if you can brush it off there really is a solid game here.

Bioshock on Switch is a monumental win for us. People have been wanting that series on handheld for the last decade. When Vita launched, rumor was the original Bioshock was coming to the system... but it fizzled out and Bioshock never came. A few years later, Bioshock Infinite released (I believe as a cross gen title?) and I remember my friend at work telling me how amazing it was. I am blown away that not only are we getting A Bioshock game, we’re getting ALL THREE.

Borderlands on Switch is also something people have been clamoring for quite intensely. Back when Bulletstorm was announced I remember all the complaints, “Why not Borderlands?”. I remember when Borderlands Remastered dropped, and people wondered why not Switch? Well, not only is the remaster coming, we’re ALSO getting Borderlands 2 AND Borderlands Pre-Sequel from the Handsome Collection. Every game in the series except B3 (which is understandable- The previous games are a much better fit for the hardware and will look immaculate on the Switch screen).

X-COM 2. Yes please. The original X-COM released on Vita, but the system just wasn’t powerful enough to run it without crazy amounts of frame drops and pop in. Never thought we’d actually get the NEW one, though I had hopes given the success of Civilization VI. This is the one strategy game that can probably rival Fire Emblem and Civilization. Basically if it’s not from Firaxis or Intelligent Systems, I don’t want it. Well, that’s not true actually... in fact that’s not true at all now that I think about it. There are a number of more niche strategy games that I have enjoyed over the years. Notably Stella Glow on 3DS, Jeanne d’Arc on PSP, Mario Rabbids and Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 4.

Catherine. This is huge. This is one of Atlus’ most beloved games. I didn’t really get into it because the puzzles were hard and they frustrated me after a few early deaths. But I’d be willing to give it another shot, seeing as I enjoy everything more on the Nintendo switch. Hopefully there will be a difficulty setting or something.

Shiren the Wanderer is indeed coming to Switch, and it is indeed one of the best of the genre. It’s the one game in the genre I’ve actually been hoping would come to the system. Shantae 5 looks great too. And that Kingdom something strategy game looks intriguing.

Xenoblade Chronicles and Bravely Default II and Trails of Cold Steel III and Trials of Mana though.... Oh man.... Ohhhh ohhh ohhh man. We’re about to get quad-plexed with JRPG classics. Sumo stomped with masterpieces of the genre. What more is there to say. Play the demos! There’s a demo out for every single one of these games barring Xenoblade!

May 28-29 is going to be one for the history books. I’ve seen entire conole launch windows that didn’t have a lineup as good as what we’re going to see in that 24 hour time frame. I’ve seen November release lineups that don’t even compare this- we’re getting 8 or 9 absolute must-play titles all at once. Probably 1000 hours of some of the best high-quality gaming you can get your hands on.

But I swear, if Borderlands doesn’t have gyro... we riot. BioShock, I would prefer to have it but, it doesn’t necessarily need it. It’s not a very typical FPS kind of game. It’s much slower paced, story driven, and experiential. I’m hoping it does but it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t. But Borderlands? Yes, that will be the end of the world. We will storm the Gearbox twitter account.

@RR529 we can be first time animal crossers together 😊. Never played a game in the series either. Picked up my copy today and should crack it open tomorrow.

Edit: regarding re origins. Have you played any re games yet? I would recommend 4 or 5, or even revelations is awesome. I tried playing 0 and 1 again last year and it was hard to get back into it.

Dmc though is rock solid. I can at least vouche for 1 and 3. And although it is gothic and you're saying monsters, Dante is pretty funny, and can lighten the mood.

@NintendoByNature, already played the first DMC and enjoyed it despite it's rough edges. My next one will probably be 2, even though I know it's considered the weakest.

Never played any RE games before (except for Degeneration, a mobile title before the age of microtransactions that played like RE4, but in an airport). When I decide to make the jump I'll start with REmake HD, just to see where it all started (I've already played through DMC & Onimusha, so the old school design is something I know I can deal with).

@RR529 ok sounds good. I also played dmc1+3 and onimusha. Re 1 and 0 just feel different than those two. Healing items are rare and saves have to be held to a minimum( you save thru ink ribbons and they're limited). So It's a little harder but maybe youll enjoy it .

@NintendoByNature that game isn't very good. I bought bit trip saga on 3ds which is the same as runner 3. I really wouldn't buy it its a waste of 20 euro..
