    on ch 5 of xenoblade c2 now.

    the combat is fun as fuck. at first I wasn't liking it. never played an MMORPG so more used to turn based combat.

    ita fucking addicting. to anyone who feels the same way, just give it time

    Didn't see the Direct this morning, but read YS: VIII is going to hit the Switch. Perfect game to add to the Switch Library.

    Nice I was going to pick this up on PS4 eventually once the price went down. Glad I waited.

    Same here. I have YS: Seven and YS: Memories of Celcita on my Vita and they are great games, made even better playing them on the go. Having this on the Switch to have on the go or on the TV is outstanding.

    I played TWEWY almost 10 years ago. One of my favorites, not underrated but definitely didn't get the fanfare it shouldve. Best game ever made for the Nintendo DS imo.

    I bought it twice on the DS (lost one copy somehow) and when I had an iPhone. Definitely one of my favorites on DS

    Now that I think of it, I honestly can't think of any nintendo game off the top of my head with a better more engaging story tbh.

    I was slightly interested in this but after hearing this I'll be keeping an eye on it. Always enjoy a game with a good story.

    That mini direct was pretty good. The World Ends with You, Ys 8 and that new Mario Tennis game caught my eye.

    Never played any Ys games, are they good JRPGs?

    It's really good story, the characters are really well done. You kinda get attached to them all in their own ways, one of my personal favorite stories on any game console. Plus the Shibuya setting is really cool and sucks you in, which is saying something for a handheld game.

    Combat was a bit confusing at times on the DS, because you had to control both top screen using D-pad to attack, while attacking on the bottom using the stylus if I remember correctly. Interested to see how combat is on the Switch compared to the DS.

    This is honestly one of my all time favorite games, probably favorite handheld game. Wish they would hurry up and make a sequel already, this is one game that truly deserves it. Was such a unique game when it came out and honestly it still is.

    The soundtrack is stellar and so is the art style.

    The more current ones are like a cross between Zelda and Secret of Mana, but at like 4x speed. There are dungeons with equipable loot like Zelda that boosts your character or helps clear obstacles. You have multiple party members that you can switch on the fly that have different skills and attacking attributes like Slash/Crush/Pierce that are more effective against different enemies.

    The game play is more hack and slashy than either Zelda of SoM, and I was worried when I started playing that it would just be about mashing buttons. The general world enemies fall under this, but the boss battles really surprised me that you have to use a lot of strategy. If you try to run up and slash away, you'll end up looking at the Game Over screen pretty quick.

    Based on Dunkey's review I am going to pick up Furi on Switch to check that out. I like that type of music so it should be decently fun.

    This sounds right up my alley so I'll be keeping an eye out on this game. Are all the games standalone stories or do I have to play some of the others to understand?

    As for combat, I typically like my JRPGs turn based (actual turn based, no ATB gauge garbage) but Xenoblade Chronicles 2 completely changed my view on action based JRPGs.

    The lead character Adol is recurring character, but from what I remember in Ys: Seven he had lost his memory so there was no back story from previous games needed. I don't remember how the opening in Celcita went, but from what I remember the back story wasn't necessary. I've only played the last 2 so I can't speak to the earlier games, but they took place on different continents so I'm sure they referenced past characters like in Persona games, but you can pick up anyone in the series and start fresh.
