Have any of you guys played Ys:viii yet? I've never played any of the series but this one looks tempting.

I've played the demo and the previous games. It's pretty good. The Switch port is closer to the Vita and will run at 30fps. 

 

Best played on PC or PS4 imo.

Been playing about 30 hours and it’s a fun game. Combat is satisfying and fast. Reminds me of a PS2 rpg, in a good way. Good story and likable characters. If you’re a fan of Japanese action rpgs, you’ll probably enjoy it.

The PS4 has a demo if you’re interested. Personally I prefer the Switch version since it’s nice playing rpgs not being tied to a tv. It’s not the prettiest of games so resolution isn’t that important and the 30 FPS is been stable and hasn’t detracted it for me at all.

That was the thoughts in the game explain review and they tend to gush on Nintendo since that's their focus. Kinda disappointing since the Switch is so much more powerful and the game frankly isn't demanding technically.

Now Kirby’s $40 @BBY!

Yet MK8 stays the same....

Is this Kirby [price drop for the July/Sumer sale?

Will Sonic Mania plus be a free update or paid dlc for those that already purchased Sonic Mania on the Switch?

Pretty sure its paid. Guessing under 10 bucks.

Guess you can call it a lazy port. Saw the physical copy @ BB the other day and even the title "Lacrimosa of Dana" looks rough.

 

People also wanted to crucify NISA for the horrible translation. It didn't bother me as much (it was always about the gameplay), but was warranted enough by people for re-do on translation.

everyone should grab this, CSH is such a great throwback to classic RPGs (especially if you were a Phantasy Star fan)

Thursday is the main day for new releases and sales, and when the weekly press releases go out. Though, Nintendo allows publishers the discretion to choose any other day if they prefer.

Ok my dudes, I've put some quality hours in the peer recommended Golf Story and I can report back that it is a really fun game.  One of my favorite purchases in the last few months.  Thanks for the constant mentioning.

Dead Cells digital release date was announced to be August 7th!!!

Played a ton of this game right when it went early access two years ago and I poured in a bunch of hours. I have heard it has gotten leaps and bounds better even from where it started!

Apparently there is a pre-order discount too, though I haven't checked to see if it's even on the eShop yet!

I am excited about this game too! It is on the eshop as a coming soon title, but you can't pre-order it yet. I think I read somewhere that the pre-orders will go live in about a week or so.

Congrats!

 

If you are at all into big story driven RPG's... don't overlook Xenoblade Chronicles 2.  I have had some of the best gaming moments of the last 10 years with that game, Zelda BotW & Super Mario Odyssey.

Thanks! I have all three of those lol I’m also looking at Stardew Valley, Hollow Knight, and Nine Parchments. Would love to see Diablo 3 ported over.

I’m enjoying blossom tales right now. It’s a nice little Zelda clone.

Yeah, I also like the Princess Bride-style means of storytelling and how it uses that to catch you up on the story if you've taken a break from the game.

Congrats as well! You have a lot of gaming ahead of you. I envy you getting to play those games for the first time.

Also, you will not regret getting Hollow Knight. One of the best games I’ve played in a long time. If you’re into Metroidvanias, might also wanna check out SteamWorld Dig 2 at some point.

Steamworld Dig 2 and Hollow Knight are amazing. Best two games I have played in a long time.

Bought Hollow Knight and Stardew Valley last night, but I’ll check out Steamworld Dig 2 as well 👍🏼

How is Nine Parchments in single player?
