so atelier ryza isn't a game deep into combat/have boss battles?

I would say no, combat is pretty casual.  There are boss battles - some of them optional postgame, but difficulty is pretty much determined by how much you choose to synth/prepare.  

 

Right before I recently finished Ryza 1's story, I synthed the strongest weapons I could for my active 3 characters (Alchemy lvl ~50/100).  Didn't even bother synthing armor.  After an easy final boss, I then decided to just try the optional postgame bosses..  and also beat all of them on the first try.

 

So that's why I call the combat casual.  Not necessarily a bad thing.  And Ryza 1 does have one of my favorite battle bgm tracks ever.  This was all on the default difficulty, so different settings might provide a different experience.

Sounds like a step up from when I played ayesha and killed almost all the super bosses besides that God damn dragon.

Sega Ages Herzog Zwei is down to $3.99, its lowest price ever.

 

Demon's Tilt is $11.99.  Anyone have any experience playing this?  I'm a big old school videogame pinball fan and this looks like it could be really good.  I was holding out hope for a physical release but I'm starting to lose that hope.

Demon’s Tilt is great. I played it on game pass when it was available but I also think the asking price is too high since it’s really just one table. I would wait for it to go cheaper.

Nice discount on Ghostrunner at $7.49 (regular $29.99), but looking at reviews, it seems the visuals take such a hit on Switch that it affects gameplay (like not being able to see where bullets are coming from). Anyone try it on Switch?

Was able to price adjust Persona Strikers down to $39.99 at BB ... not bad with the included steelbook.

For those who have it/played it, how does Persona 5 Strikers run on the Switch? I would prefer it on the Switch rather than PS4.

I ordered Clubhouse Games last night to play with my kids. Is the online pretty active for random matches, or is it completely dead now?

It’s really good! Runs smoothly most of the time, but does make some sacrifices to get there (worst offender I’ve seen is some pop-in for ambient objects partway through the second big area) but nothing deal-breaking. Loading takes a bit more than you’d expect, but overall I’m having a good time some 17 hours in.

Not sure about online but I'm more disappointed with the pathetic lack of 3 and 4 player games.

Have not played it, but have seen 2 or 3 video reviews all with the same comment - buy it on another platform. Switch port suffers severe performance issues. Only get it if you absolutely have to play it and don't have another console or PC able to run it.

That's exactly what I was hoping to read. I'll be picking up my copy tomorrow.

That was the case at launch, but I've seen that they've added a few patches since then. The latest was 1.3 at the end of February. I was only able to find one video of it running on the Switch lite:

Anyone play the latest version of Ghostrunner? Super tempted to get it if the visuals/lighting have been improved.

$40 for Paper Mario: The Origami King

 

Even though it says Spanish, the reviews indicate it will install the English version if your system is set to English

 

This is the cheapest I have seen it outside of the Gamefly used game sales.

Can confirm you suck at Tetris.

 

And here I thought I was gonna have free time since Mario 35 ended. Surprised this doesn't have a random expiration date to say, celebrate Pac-Man's 41st birthday in 2021!

PAC man first impressions...it’s okay. Wish it had daily challenges to earn stuff. I probably won’t play it very much.

The day I’ve long feared has finally come... Groove Coaster is putting DLC packs on sale.

The Touhou Arrangement packs (which generally all totally slap) are 30% off ($11.19) until April 26.

Yea. No daily challenges so is there nothing to earn from gameplay? All the themes look like paid DLC.

I saw Atelier Ryza Switch on Amazon this morning for $68. Maybe I should have bit. Gone now, of course.

After trying to figure out if the Switch could properly handle Ghostrunner, I finally realized it has a demo ^^;

 

They fixed the brightness issue from when it first released. I'm sure graphics are amazing on other platforms, but looked fine to me (at least for the first level I played from the demo). Difficult game but one you get better at with time. Instant respawn on death is nice. A little weird getting used to jumping with R (R jump, L dash, A slide, ZR kill). Very rewarding sense of accomplishment when you clear a section that kept killing you.

 

Price hasn't gone below $20.99 on PSN, so I happily bought it for Switch at $7.49.

My copy just came. It appears to be the EU version of the game with the back of the box in Spanish but the game itself is in English and plays fine. If you are someone that just buys games to play them (not a box collector) then this is a good deal.
