@ReaderRagfish You kidding? That's why I love the switch so much! Lunch breaks add up.
@JaxonH I learned at the feet of the master. Although my GCU just ended yesterday so that is going to make this hurt my poor wallet.

I predict Pikmin 3 will be the December game and Prime Trilogy comes in 2021.

@NintendoByNature sigh So, Half-Genie Hero is probably more "linear," but in the wrong ways. The levels are designed like more traditional levels in a side-scroller, but, for whatever reason, the game still requires backtracking to unlock new paths, which is a pain with levels that clearly weren't designed with exploration in mind.

Pirate's Curse is still a "linear" game in the sense that you explore a sequence of stages that progressively open up throughout the game. The environments are vastly more fun to explore, though, and are designed with more of a respect for player agency. There's still backtracking, but it feels more natural here. Additionally, the music, gameplay, writing, characters, challenge, etc. are all fantastic in this game, whereas I felt many of these elements were sort of anemic in Half-Genie Hero.

Pirate's Curse is a fun game. A bit like a 2D Zelda game in the sense that you use abilities to access new environments and have to complete small quests to progress. Unless you're totally unwilling to engage with anything that's not purely linear in design, I think you'll really dig it.

I don't usually push my opinions on stuff too hard, but Pirate's Curse is SUCH a better game than Half-Genie Hero. We're talking best game in the series vs. worst game in the series.

@Ryu_Niiyama Witcher 3 was dated for November? I didn't recall seeing an actual release date.

I wish I had the time to play that many games. As it stands, I'm going to struggle to complete the handful of releases I mentioned earlier. There needs to be more hours in a day.

I'm just grateful that there isn't as big of a gap in Japanese releases this time. My import lists used to be huge.

@Ralizah sounds good. Thanks for the info. I really dislike back tracking in games unless it's seamless and not a total waste of time. Maybe I'll snag pirates curse. Appreciate the feedback as usual.

I found it funny when I noticed Pirates Curse is actually more expensive than 1/2 Genie Hero, even without the discounts.

@Morpheel You're paying for the quality.

More realistically, it makes sense given that the base version of Half-Genie Hero doesn't include the DLC (I believe; I kickstarted it, so I got access to the DLC regardless). And there's a LOT of DLC content in the game.

@NintendoByNature I will mention that most of Half-Genie Hero's DLC modes don't include backtracking, and play like linear, arcade-style games. Just something to keep in mind.

Eel

Hah, I'd expect them to value the base adventure just as much if not more than their previous game (which was also a single campaign). Pricing it lower because it has dlc is kinda like admitting the DLC should be considered part of the main game.

I personally really like Pirate's Curse. 1/2 I found a bit... Annoying? I reached a part with a forced "go up quickly or die" section and then lost interest.

Also they made the shopkeeper look a bit silly in the new style.

@Morpheel I think even the developers realized how anemic the main quest was. The DLC modes are almost all better than the main game, and many of them are just as, if not more, elaborate. They're also usually quite a bit more challenging.

I'm coming to accept the idea that I actually sort of like the DLC content for the game. It's fun, challenging, and lacks the aggravating backtracking of the main campaign.

Pirate's Curse is still far better, though, even if you take all the DLC into account. It's a lengthy(-ish), satisfying story with fun characters, amusing dialogue, and a decent level of difficulty.

Does anyone else never use the D pad. Like, ever. I've played and completed hollow knight, hyperlight drifter, donkey kong tropical freeze, smash bros, new super mario bros u deluxe etc using the joystick. I'm getting the idea I'm in the minority? I could be wrong though!

So with the indie treehouse today, wondering if king of cards will be dropped on the eshop today

Who wants to bet A Hat in Time gets a release date today?

Heck, I could even see it being one of those "available today on Nintendo eshop!" dealios.

In a rush of self-congratulation for not having many upcoming games on my (immediate) purchase list I've just ordered Steins Gate Elite and Okami, so that's all that good work undone

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?
