Thoughts on Yooka Laylee for Switch? I've been wanting it and this is right about my sweet spot. But wanted some opinions on this prior to buying.

Has anyone played Romancing Saga 2? Not sure if it is worth the $12.50

It's pretty rough around the edges. The game itself is a little dated, and it's the mobile port, so it plays rather jankily. If you must play through every game Square-Enix have ever put out, it probably won't get any cheaper than that. But personally, I bought it, played it for a train ride, and found it too frustrating to play again.

No, you didn't, as "N" is about as ass backwards as it gets. They have made some HUGE strides forwards in recent years, as their region free option for the NS seems top shelf, but for every great 2 steps forward, there will always be 3 more going back. This is just how they operate, and just like you, I've had to look up stuff online just to try to do basic things, only to be more confused after researching is done.

 

It is what it is, and why the Wii U was the first "N" system in my life I didn't buy at launch, and that trend has continued with the NS. And this is after having been a fan since the Game & Watch days. There are just to many great games and offerings across all platforms, for me to have to fight for scraps and pay a tax just to play on a "N" device.

ur right, i stopped any launch systems because of upgrades or support, got a switch a year after but its still mostly indie and 1st party heavy as n refuses 64gb carts or bigger and lack of capability compared to sony and microsoft who both upgrade to be closer to pc for better gaming instead of gimmick based as "new", well i havent even touched my ps4 since sonys new policy and the other two i go back and forth with, if a game comes out its xbox first, then switch, and never sony when its an option, like buying scarlet for the switch

I dont recall seeing that on sale (I only saw some square games) so if there's more then I take back what I said. But I actually have earthlock on steam but havent played enough to give you a real opinion. I didnt hate it tho, it just obviously wasnt great enough for me to finish in one sitting. so many games.

Yea, I think it popped up on sale for $13 something a bit after everything else went live. Seems to be getting decent reviews. The art style looks kind of meh to me though.

Is there a method to Nintendo sale end dates?

I bought Wheel of Fortune late last night from the website since I kinda remembered seeing the end date while browsing the shop on the console but I didn't see an end date on the shop website itself. Is there a way to tell on just the website when the sale ends?

You have to use the corresponding console to see when the sales on that platform end. The OP here keeps track of them, as well.

Earthlock is an alright by the book JRPG, with some interesting new ideas, I think it would've been helped to have voice over, but they didn't put that in.

Only jrpg on that sale worth the price is i am setsuna

 

IMHO Setsuna is overrated. Easy and repetitive combat, monotonous setting and music. The idea behind the story is interesting...and better executed in total by Octopath (different scale and not on sale - just saying).

 

My two cents. To each their own.

Setsuna is good, worth the $20.

Octopath is great, worth the $45-50 you can get it on sale.

 

Thats the difference.

People will like Setsuna more if they have Chrono Trigger nostalgia.

 

I appreciated the music because they stuck to a pretty interesting motif - every track is a solo piano piece.  Some of them are beautiful, others fall flat (especially a certain jaunty/annoying world map theme).  But at least it's creative and different.

I love Chrono Trigger and I Am Setsuna basically having the same combat system but nothing else about it that compares well to Chrono Trigger (story, music, characters, charm) is the thing that kills it for me. It's fine as a by-the-numbers JRPG that I can mindlessly play, but they shouldn't be aiming to ape such an amazing game if they can't back it up. Oninaki looks like them finding their own mark to make on the genre rather than just making lesser clones like the hundreds of indie JRPGs on Steam but with a bigger budget.

All of this I Am Setsuna talk reminds me of when Black Sigil came out on the DS and everyone was like it's like Chrono Trigger and was popularized at the time. It's faded into obscurity and most people see the flaws now, but at the time I just remember hearing about it. I still need to play I Am Setsuna myself.

Yeah I remember the love for Black Sigil.  The DS had a lot of hidden gems like that which just got way too much attention and blown out of proportion.  When I got my copy of The Dark Spire, prices got so out of hand that I opted just to sell it on because I was only marginally interested in the genre.

 

I haven't tried I Am Setsuna, but the spiritual sequel Lost Sphear has a demo.  It bored me to tears.  It just wasn't for me and made it clear that I Am Setsuna is probably not for me either.

I mean... I absolutely love Chrono Trigger, it's one of my all time favorite games.  And I thought Setsuna was a bland and boring exercise.  Really the only thing that felt similar to me was the combat, and even that outstayed it's welcome.

 

Honestly, I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more if it had never been mentioned in the same vein as CT.  But because I went into it with that comparison at the forefront, everything about the game felt subpar and lackluster.

 

And then, my brief moment of true nostalgia at finding specific weapons was ruined because I went from "Oh that's a nice reference" to "...I could be playing a much better game" in the span of about 5 seconds.

I actually thought Lost Sphear was better than Setsuna... but still very blah.  I was bored by the demo, but thought it may just be a slow build story.

I should have just assumed it would stay boring.
