How's Obra Dinn on the Switch? Didn't even know it was on the Switch until it popped up here. 


Incredible. I played through it again after loving it on PC a couple of years ago. Perfect fit for the Switch.

Golf Story is a lovely RPG with a bit of top down golf attached.

 

Like the handheld Mario Golfs but with more of the RPG.

 

How much of it is actual golf? I watched a video review or two of it and it seemed like the RPG part of it was fairly prominent, and that there wasn't as much golf as I thought. I was thinking it was basically Mario Golf GBC but without the Nintendo-y theme.

I found the actual golf a little underwhelming to be honest - fine, but there wasn't much to it. I didn't finish the game largely because I felt the story, such as it was, dragged things on too long while the golf itself didn't really engage me.

I thought Golf Story was fantastic. Not much of a challenge but that suited the gentle tone of it all quite nicely. Mixes up the objectives and environment just enough to keep it from getting stale. The writing is very cute too.

Another sale, another set of banal queries from me.

Might finally try Golf Story and/or West of Loathing, if anyone has any opinions on those. 

Obra Dinn is flawless. I completed it on both Switch and Series X and there's no functional difference that I could tell. 

 

West of Loathing is a great, overlooked gem. I made a thread for it a while back.

Frankly you disgust me you've not got them both already.

Golf Story left me pretty cold. 

 

Probably anything would leave you cold if you're dead inside.

Obra Dinn is poor. Avoid it.

 

Now, I've no issue with people putting forward opinions that don't match the general consensus (I'd lead a somewhat dysphoric life otherwise, after all), but it helps to give some kind of reasoning if you want to help someone make a decision about whether to try a game or not. What was it about the game that you found poor? Perhaps your issues will match concerns Parksey harboured, and you'll save them some money; or perhaps they'll be things Parksey feels confident won't bother them, in which case they will feel comfortable trying the game regardless.

 

Simply saying that the game "is poor" after a litany of praise from other posters, on the other hand, doesn't really give Parksey anything to go on.

Obra Dinn is a top ten game of all time. But it does require commitment.

It's a fantastic game, very funny and a great little puzzler. I preferred the humour in West of Loathing though.

Oh, I have. Oh yes. 
 

West of Loathing is the only genuinely funny game I’ve ever played.

I’m sorry! I didn’t want to dislike it but the obvious big problem with comedy in games is that if you lean into it and it doesn’t hit for the player then no amount of great story and mechanics (I liked playing it) can save it.

Some bargains to be had I'd you like your retro throwback kinda stuff.

Is there an app that tracks this stuff on nintendo store, all of the "matches previous low" stuff?


I want to get back into my Switch but the blizzard of games on the store is a lot of "noise" to sift through!
