Posted in ATF but thought I'd try here also. I have just has Zelda BOTW digital code bought for me for fathers day & already have it. Missus is pretty upset as this is the first time she's ever attempted to get anything gaming related for me - researched it all herself; great choice - and as she understands there's no possible exchange or refund. It was purchased online from Smyths 5 days ago.

 

Does anyone know what my options might be? If no chance of an exchange with the shop then where might I exchange/sell this online? Feel really bad for her and would love a resolution.

 

Thought I should update this to say Smyths were great and have refunded the money after I emailed them.

 

What game to get in place though? Scouring this thread for inspiration and looking for something I can pick up easily for 5 minutes at a time. Yoshi's Crafted World looks great actually. How does this compare with New Super Mario Bros, Mario Odyssey or the new Mario Kart for a Nintendo fan who has been out of the loop since the Gamecube? Going to be 1 player only played on a Switch Lite.

Yoshi is incredible. We’ve had it since October and the kids and me are still playing it.  
It’s charming, funny, tricky and gorgeous. You’ll never regret having it. 

 

:)

 

I get paid next week, I'm going to pick it up :)

... most cheerful commentary ever (On the greeeeen!!)... 

 

I've played for about an hour or so and I think this voice sample alone may be worth the entrance fee.

I had a great DotEmu port of Turf Masters for my Android phone but it doesn’t seem to be on iOS for some reason. Was it incompatible with an update maybe? Boo. 


I have it. It still works with iOS 13, but isn’t available to purchase anymore, and it hasn’t been updated for three years either.

That’s even worse! Bah. 
 

We need a new Mario Golf. It’s bizarre the Switch has been out over three years, taken over the world and yet the best two golf games on it are from the mid-90s: Turf Masters and Kirby.

Anyone tried Urban Flow? Looks interesting in a sort of Conduct Together way...


I’ve bought it - its quite interesting as is very cleanly executed and both chill and maddening to play at the same time.

 

When you flow and get the lights right its so relaxing, then it all stacks up and goes wrong (my fault, not bad game design)

 

Urban Trials new release looks ok too from trailer

I finally finished Tokyo Mirage Sessions. 

 

think I liked it? I feel like if it didn't have the boob jiggle I'd have unashamedly loved it. But the typical anime misogyny would have been shrugged off when I was in my 20s but now it's a bit cringeworthy. But I just loved how ridiculous the concept was and I just couldn't stop grinding through it. 

 

I was glad for it to finally be over though, but then it leaves this massive hole for what story based thing to play next. I guess I should get Xenoblade Chronicles. I tried it on 3DS and just didn't get on with it. I had no fucking clue what was going on with the battle system but I imagine it just didn't translate well to the small screen.

 

But I think I am up for some action / MMO style combat* as after a while just waiting for endless sessions in TMS made the combat start to get boring, as there wasn't a whole lot of strategy in its battle system beyond "don't die, try to get big sessions" 

 

I'm also up for big huge vistas and a story that is more epic, more fantasy setting. As fun as the world of Japanese idol culture was for a little while, dialogue about "trying ones best to become a better performer thanks to the support of your friends" ad infinatum did grate a little.

 

Lockdown has given me a taste for JPRGs that has been long dormant. Earthlock had its flaws but there was something nice about it being pretty 'straight up', not complex, and not being bogged down in sidequest & cutscene hell. That much worries me a little about Xenoblade. But it looks so nice. And this much football won't be on all summer, but the pandemic will soooooo

 

I'm also tempted by, and have never played Ni No Kuni. Ahh decisions.

 

* I'm also tempted to resub WoW but I'm forbidden from falling off the wagon.

Yeah, I'm looking at clocking in 100hrs into Dragon Quest 11. I don't think I could have done that any other console. It really helps that I can do some chores and grind through some of it handheld, and then when I get a bit of time with the telly I can trust I can do the pure fun bits. I got DQ8 on PS2 and 3DS in my wake proving this. 

 

It was my main issue with Ni No Kuni too. I got through a fair bit of that on PS3, but I really could have done with remote play working on that for Vita. So I'll probably hop onto that soon. 

 

Anyone got any recommendations along these lines? I hadn't even heard of Tokyo Mirage Sessions

Ah shit I've just remembered Paper Mario is out in a few weeks. I really want to play that, but getting another massive RPG now that will almost certainly not be done by the 17th seems like a not-sensible thing to do. 

 

So obviously I'm going to.

There’s a demo for Dragon Quest 11 and Trials of Mana remake of you’re curious about either of those @cowfields

 

Thanks, I had tried them both. I was put off by both for different reasons.

 

DQ11 because it is so so archetypal that I just felt...not right now. Xenoblade obviously is going to be at its core but the SciFi setting just feels a bit more what I'm after.

 

ToM I was just put off by having to narrow my character choice down to 3, and it felt a bit too much like was saying at the start "you're gonna play this a few times through". Really wasn't interested in replay. I realise that's reactionary, but when you're looking for reasons...

 

My dilemma right now is bascially Ni No Kuni or Xenoblade, or neither and wait for Paper Mario.

 

Either way Paper Mario is getting played, and maybe I'll pretend I can run two RPGs at the same time. I doubt Paper Mario is going to be a really big time investment.

Xenoblade is really great. You can skip a lot of side quests and the battle system is fun, just might be worth checking out a beginners guide online if you’re worried about it.
