    Zelda and Splatoon 2 are really the only system sellers at the moment, but there's Mario coming soon too ::foot::

    I've been playing "Sonic Mania" which is good beyond all expectations. Who knew that the only thing required to bring back Sonic was letting people who actually like Sonic work on it?

    Still playing Zelda, clocking at 200+ hours now... :'D

    Did all the Beasts, no omw to the Master Sword challenge and going to defeat Ganon after that.


    Really looking forward to getting Skyrim and Doom on the Switch as I've played neither.
    Will ofcourse be getting the new Mario too :)
    Also, that Project Octopath stuff looks REALLY good!

    None of those really sell the system to me though... Truthfully, I don't know what would sell the system to me.

    I didn't go back and buy the DLC yet, don't know if I'll ever get around to it with all the new games coming out.
    Here, just finished my first playthrough of Sonic Mania (without all the flippin' emeralds) and of course the...
    ETRIAN 5 demo :D
    My current party is doggedly traditional, none of the "weird" classes seem that useful.

    If Mario and Zelda don't sell systems to you, you should probably just get a Playstation XD

    I had completely forgotten about Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night until recently. As a result I've been listening to the Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness OST a lot lately, so I decided to upgrade my Kickstarter pledge from the digital copy to Alchemist's Treasure.

    I'm in at the "Dark Grimoire" level because I like art books and stuff ::batsu::

    Etrian Odyssey V finally came out yesterday so that's what I'm playing at every spare moment :|

    If Kojima Ayami was the primary artist then I would be all aboard, but the artwork shown so far isn't enough for me to commit to that tier, although the new marketing artwork done by the community manager was pretty unreal!

    Why not hand over the extra $100 and get the deluxe box and Amano poster too! :P

    So, who else is taking their chances standing in line for Mario tomorrow? XD
    I don't have a TV at the moment so I'm actually going to have to play it in handheld mode :|

    So, did you get Mario? How was it?

    I've almost wrapped up Zelda, I just have one last Divine Beast to complete, then the matter of taking down Ganon.

    I thought it was great, with one exception - 100%ing the game would be unrewarding and nearly impossible. I hate that.
    Mario's also somewhat less nimble than the previous 3D installments, but that might just be a side effect of the worlds being hundreds of times bigger than before. For once the controls themselves are perfect though - if you've ever played a 3D Mario game you won't even need to read the manual, it'll all be engraved into your bones already.

    Currently playing "Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance" on Gamecube... on normal mode so it's fairly easy XD

    I downloaded the demo of Dragon Quest builders not too long ago, I wasn't expecting to enjoy it but lo and behold, I became hooked.

    Currently playing through Chapter 2 of the full game. There are a lot of improvements that could be made, which I hope they do for upcoming sequel.

    Other than that, I am still eagerly looking forward to the release of Bloodstained.

    I'm hyped for the cryptocurrency mining ::meev::

    Just finished up the other day with "Secret of Evermore", which was really pretty lousy. I wish I hadn't paid to get a complete copy.

    I didn't realise that was an April fool's joke and just assumed it was a feature that people are interested in these days.

    I remember playing that way back, I was suckered in thinking it was connected to the 'Secret of Mana' series and was never able to get in to it.

    I’ve wantes to watch that for a long time, they had the complete collection in my local gothic emperorium but it was an NTSC copy. For some reason I had a complete mindblank and didn’t realise I could just play it on my computer.

    Was it the coffin box? XD I'm pretty sour that they released that AFTER I bought all the individual boxsets ::hora::
    But yes, I totally recommend watching it, at least up through the Quentin saga or so.

    Nothing elaborate, just a regular DVD as far as I can recall, actually it might have been a digipak. I was more interested in their figures of Bela Lugosi as Dracula and 'The Hypnotist' from 'London After Midnight'. Sometimes I drift off in thought and wonder why in my periods of frivolous expenditure I never bought any of those things.

    I am still stumped as to where to watch it, is it available online anywhere?

    We should probably migrate this to the viewing thread. :P
