It's one of the most popular and best-selling games on the Switch, so they're doing something right.

I’m getting very optimistic about Wolfe stein and other FPS after seeing the trailers....like I think this summer I’m going to end up buying a Nintendo Pro controller and at least ONE FPS, like Wolfe stein...and I know it was rumored but after seeing this, and remembering the Wii got black ops, i think we might finally see a new COD on Nintendo (i just hope the title is worth the hesitantly in jumpin back into that)

But MAN, that trailer in the News section is great,and there are so many titles coming !! I’m getting excited about gaming again

Yeah, and on top of that, it was free on PS+ which is probably the main reason for it's overall success. It blew up after it was offered free, and the discounts just seem to keep the train going.

Switch online details will be released early next month and the service will be in effect in September. 

 

Here's hoping for cloud saves.

It's near the top of the Best Sellers list every day, even when it's not on sale, so that's not the main reason.

Not sure why it was delisted on the NA eShop, but I can tell you that my digital version updated to v1.4.1 today. Don't know what this one did.

I think Rocket League probably makes most of its money from microtransactions at this point. It wouldn't entirely surprise me if they eventually go full F2P.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

I think it will also become F2P. It is still selling pretty well on the Switch so they are probably just waiting for those sales to take a dip first.

I’m going to forget to ask, as i already did at launch, but is attack on titan 2 the switch version of attack on titan for ps4? Or is it a sequel+conversion/port?

What is your review of attack on titan? If you care to share....
Thanks

It doesn't need to go free-to-play at all because it's still making a ton of money at full price and is doing better now than at launch.

Maybe a sequel but that's basically why it's on sale pretty cheaply at least once a month on every platform. It's all about getting it into as many hands as possible.

My significant other isn’t massively into games but she is really enjoying Zelda BOTW with the guide out. I’m looking for a game to have on tap when she finishes Zelda. She also liked child of light (Xbox).

Any simple rpg’s that might be a good introduction? I am Setsuna looks like an idea.

I also already have ocean horn in case she wants a Zelda like.

Not Setsuna, it's too dependent on nostalgia for that kind of thing. I know it's not Switch but if you have access to Persona 4 Golden or Persona 5 maybe if you want something actual JRPG. There's a lot going on there outside of the standard JRPG stuff (but not in an overwhelming way) and a lot of people find them a good gateway because they're so full of personality. Maybe the Kingdom Hears PS4 ports if they're into Disney (though the plots are crazy convoluted)? Probably just depends on their willingness to try something else and what it was that's hooked them on BotW. If it's just the huge world and freedom maybe something like Skyrim though it's more of a blank slate compared to Zelda.

 

Or just throw Stardew Valley at them, that seems to hook everyone.

Keep her on botw and expansion pack until July and then get her Octopath Traveler.

I’m playing Setsuna now. It’s underwhelmingly easy, I’m pretty sure my 6 year old would be able to play it.

That being said, I’m liking it. It has an unusually calming effect. Maybe it’s the setting and the art style.
It also has a level of depth if you wanted to get into really tweaking the setups.

My gf HATES videogames and everything related to them but she somehow liked Stardew Valley, maybe you could try that.

Thanks for the responses. I forgot to mention Stardew. Def on my list too. I’ll show her octopus then traveler. As for Setsuna, I like the idea its simple and calm. As for persona 5, I would’ve thought it would be way too much at once

This autocorrect amuses me more than it should.

Another vote for Stardew Valley here.

How about LA Noire? It has a great story, extremely easy mechanics, and a modest amount of exploration.

I don't understand comments like this. When I was in the six-to-eight years old range, I was playing and regularly beating games I find obnoxiously difficult if I go back to today. I don't think difficulty has anything to do with what games a child can handle, just gameplay style, content, and presentation.

That said, when they do run into a game that's too difficult for them, children have a harder time controlling the rage in their ragequits. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, HOTEL MARIO.
