I've played a very small amount of All-Star Fruit Racing. It's a good kart racing game. Obviously, it's difficult to recommend it over either MK8D or CTR. But for the price of $1, I think you'll get more than your money's worth.

@DenDen yea im not really sure which way. Im leaning more towards DQ to get that big game feel, but i love the look of OT. Its a tough one.

@BruceCM i did when they both launched. Liked em both a bit but i wasn't as into jrpgs as I am this year. So I didn't get them a fair shake. Itll probably boil down to one of them going on a decent sale and me impulse buying lol

Anybody know what first person shooter Metal Jesus is playing here? I pasted the video to play at the relevant timestamp. So, just hit play and watch for that 10 second clip. Piece of cake. What game is it? If it's Bioshock, which Bioshock?

Eh, I hardly play FPS games, @WoomyNNYes .... So far, I'm playin Bioshock 1 & it certainly doesn't look like that, so I doubt it'd be any of those

Ok. I’m on the final boss of Paper Mario (a glorious game, I might add). When I’m done I’m going back to Trails of Cold Steel on PC and Trails of Cold Steel 3 on Switch. After that, I’m going back to Persona 4 Golden on PC and Catherine Full Body on Switch. Maybe even a second playthrough of Fire Emblem Three Houses on the Dimitri Blue Lions route. At least, tentatively.

But with Nintendo’s silence I’m getting antsy from hype withdrawal (I didn’t know it, but it seems I am as much of a hype junkie as anyone else, kind of like a drug addict who takes Percocets every day and doesn’t know they’re an addict until they try going without! That’s me without Switch news)

In light of this recent discovery, I’m jonesing for something new... something I haven’t played before. I just bought Utawarerumono Mask if Truth and Mask of Deception on Steam. And Tokyo Xanadu, since it’s from the Trails dev. But I am wondering what amazing games I may have missed (and it would probably need to be on Steam because I own pretty much everything on Switch, although, there’s a possibility I own a good recommended Switch game but haven’t played much, like Ni No Kuni and Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 4, Okami HD, etc).

Is there any hope for me? Is there any recommendation someone has for some hidden gem that skated under Action Jax’s radar?

@WoomyNNYes
Immortal Redneck has gyro. Void Bastards does not. Just putting that out there 😁

@JaxonH I'm ready to buy a ps5 if Nintendo doesn't haven't anything good this fall. ...that big white ps5 does look ugly though, haha. I'm not feeling it. Hoping the white panels can come off.

@WoomyNNYes
Well, you might be better off buying a cheap PS4 or X1 (assuming you don’t have one, but I assume not if you’re talking about buying systems for more games) if you’re just looking for games to supplement, since new consoles usually only have a small handful the first year (some multiplats releasing but they’re also coming to current gen- there is full BC on Series X though, but not PS5, as it will be much more limited- only 100 games to start I’m hearing). I’m sure Switch will have some good stuff this fall though (Bravely Default 2, DOOM Eternal, Pokemon Snap, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, probably Mario Collection or 3D World, Atelier Ryza 2, etc). But Pokemon Snap aside, I’m not sure they’ll have any big new first party title besides ported games.

I can always fall back on PC, but even then, it’s not like I don’t have umpteen billion amazing Switch games to play. I have more amazing games to play on Switch than I could plow through in the next 3 years (like, Borderlands 2 and PreSequel- that’s 200 hours and one of the finest FPS ever made, with gyro, or Ni No Kuni, one of the best JRPGs ever, or Okami HD, Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 4, all 3 Bioshocks, XCOM 2, Mario Rabbids, even Mario Rabbids I haven’t finished, multiple routes in Fire Emblem, countless Resident Evil games, Dragon’s Dogma, never got back to Assassins Creed Black Flag, etc etc). I’m just craving announcements.

But ya, I’m gonna try my hardest not to buy any PS5 or XSX this coming gen. If I can limit all my gaming to just Switch + PC, that would be ideal. Consolidation of library (can’t stand having games spread across 4 platforms), $20/yr covers online for both Switch games and the big multiplats (since Steam is free) so that saves money, gyro for every game (I’ll never play a game on PS/Xbox without gyro that needs it again- if I do it’ll be RPGs that don’t require aiming), better graphics and guaranteed 60fps for every non-Switch game, and not worrying about space since I have 10 terabytes SSD on PC- I can’t even imagine trying to make 825gb somehow work on a next gen console, and even if you can swap internal SSD, the pain of going through that process and downloading the operating system and reinstalling, and even then you’re still capped by the limit of that one single SSD... no thanks. I’m banking on all the 3rd party games eventually coming to Steam or Switch (or both). They might arrive a little later, but as long as they come, that’s good enough for me. Also banking on all of MS’s games coming to PC (Gears Tactics released on Steam day one but still hasn’t come to Xbox!) and at least some of Sony’s (Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding, Beyond Two Souls and Detroit Become Human leading the charge). Aside from a small handful of Sony exclusives, literally every other game in existence will be consolidated on Switch and PC.

I figure if 2 systems can account for 99% of games released, with better graphics, better frame rates, gyro, portability, with free or cheaper online... why buy a 3rd platform, without gyro or portability, with $60/yr online, just to gain that last 1%. Having said that, I will likely grab a PS5 toward the end of the next generation just to scoop up whatever small handhold of those 1% are left that haven’t been ported to PC/Switch. Won’t use online, and won’t buy any games that require aiming though. So no Horizon Zero Dawn 2 for me unless it comes to Steam. I refuse to play that game without Gyro, especially after having it for the first. Probably games like Demon Souls or Persona 6 are candidates I’d buy (assuming they don’t bring the next Persona to Steam at the very least, and I highly doubt they’ll keep it exclusive after seeing its success, and that of P4G on Steam).

@JaxonH The Switch is my only current gen console. I've looked at ps4 prices, but they don't look like they've come down in price. I assume covid disruption is currently a driving factor.

Yeah, I don't understand why PlayStation games aren't utilizing gyro aiming, since the ps4 controllers have motion sensors. I've wondered if Nintendo somehow has patents on implementing that, but I dont see how that could be the issue.

No patents. Would be like patenting buttons or analog sticks. The Days Gone devs put gyro in the game, but I recently heard its pretty horrible (like Crysis gyro on Switch). Infamous Second Son used it for your spray paint can. So they use it, but rarely. Why, I have no idea. Maybe its because their players dont care about it. But... of course they don't. Cant miss what you never had. 99% of PS gamers are blissfully ignorant about the fact the control scheme forced upon them has long since been surpassed with modern input methods that can legitimately close the gap with mouse precision, all without ever giving up the comfort of a controller.

If they had gyro in all their games and 3rd parties were doing gyro on PS like they do on Switch, I'd be much more likely to migrate back from PC... then again, there's still the paid online issue (about to do a fresh run of MH World on PC with my guy Logan, where its free forever- unlike when it launched and I had to pay another $60 just to play the game with my brother), there's also the limited SSD space issue, and the fact many AAA games will still likely run at 30fps (most can run 60fps at 4k on PC but even then super recent ones that cant quite hold 60, all you gotta do is bump it down to 1440p and you get 90fps immediately, and can't even tell the difference anyways, plus the new Nvidia DLSS 2.0 is a gargantuan breakthrough delivering visuals on par or better than 4k at a huge discount to power, meaning way higher framerates- once it was added to MH World, it framerate on 4K Ultra jumped from below 45-ish to 80+, meaning you can cap it at 60 and it never dips below). So, maybe I would still stick with PC as primary platform alongside Switch, but, I'd definitely preorder day one. I wouldn't be waiting, that's for sure.

Can grab Xbox super cheap though, like $200 (and I bet the X1X goes on sale when new consoles release, although if rumors are true, Xbox may be releasing a $200-300 1080p version of their next console that plays all next gen games and has full BC) and with almost complete BC on X1 with 360 and original Xbox theres tons of games to play. PC, PS and Xbox share the vast majority of their library. So for me, my Xbox basically collects dust (still good for Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon though, which never released on any other platform, even PC). But for you, not having any other supplementary platform, Xbox would be a huge boon. BC means not only getting all the awesome current gen games, but also killer 360 games like Portal, Portal 2, Lost Odyssey, Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Mass Effect Trilogy, Dragon Age Trilogy, etc.

@JaxonH Regarding backward compatibility, its funny, since my brother got a xbox one in 2015?, I've been watching xb1's BC list for one game, Simpsons Hit &Run (360), haha, and it never came ☹.

If you live in Murica, Hand of Fate 2 has been marked down 67%, from $30 to $10. A good asking price for a great game. I know I might sound like a broken record, but this is arguably the best game developer Defiant Development had made. So I try to "go to bat" for it when possible.
