There’s obviously been talk in the eShop megathread because where else ever why?... but thought I’d start a thread in order to post big DF John ‘The Legend’ Linneman’s video here:

 

 

I’m not pure dying to play it or anything, but I can definitely see me getting round to it soon. Love me a puzzle platformer explore em up.

 

Anyone tried it?

I got it on day of release, purely based on the trailer as I couldn’t see any reviews at the time. Visually it looked amazing, especially with the fake HDR mode on my TV.  It wasn’t really what i was expecting though. I hardly played it but it was already showing I was at over 60% total completion and I’m sure I didn’t play much more than 2 hours.

Apparently it's about 6 hours long. Shin'en seem to be absolute masters from the technical side of things. The game is 231MB is size!

He’s obviously never played Bomb Jack....

Is there likely to be another sale on the eShop before Christmas?
 

This game looks wonderful, isn’t drowned to death in blur and manages to run at a rock solid 60fps. 
 

Maybe Nintendo should ask them to have a look at Link’s Awakening. :coffee:

I watched that video yesterday, love a good John Linneman review, and it’s gone from ‘looks like a generic Minecraft clone, why would I be interested in that?’ to ‘John Linneman says it’s good? I must own it!’.

 

As nice as Fast RMX looked (as a launch game for Switch no less) I didn’t really gel with it - it relied too much on the kind of razor-sharp twitch reactions I don’t have; in short it was too fast! This looks like it goes entirely in the opposite direction. I like slow, contemplative games but the question is, is it too slow?

It's very charming, but also very shallow. Six hours playtime? Doubt it. I think I finished it in around 4h.

 

For most people it'll be 6 hours or so to 100% it. Took me around that time, but I enjoyed just having a wander about the place. The Fez comparisons are both accurate and slightly misleading - it has a similar atmosphere, that sense of a sunny, happy place with mysterious secrets beneath the surface, but it's ultimately fairly lightweight stuff. Worth a shot, I'd say, though the suggestions that it's a genuine 'Switch GOTY contender' are a bit much. Then again, people went similarly overboard about FAST Racing.

How good would it be for an 8 year old? I read the puzzles weren't too complicated.

 

Yeah, fine. There's one really fiddly bit that feels out of place, but otherwise it's pretty easy.

This is very good, I was going to wait until a sale but a YouTube video had me wanting to play it. From the talk of the length I'll take my time as much as possible.

God no. Life’s too short and there are way too many long games already. Give me a good 4-8 hour game that is all killer.

 

I'd largely go along with that, but if Fez 2 came along I'd be dropping everything bar my Noita runs. Hours bedamned.
