    So TLDL Witcher 3 is impressive for handheld and looks like absolute garbage docked so buy it if you want to play it portable and play another version if you want it on the big screen.

    I do disagree with the DF take on the water. Witcher 3 water isn't that impressive. Super Mario Odyssey is definitely better for one, and isn't Black Flag on Switch? Black Flag has WAAAAY better water then Witcher 3.

    So the Nintendo twitter accounts just started announcing Blizzard cancelled their Overwatch launch events in places like new york like 36 hours before they happened and its great seeing places like the switch reddit struggle to try and keep it on lockdown without saying its because they dont want people mentioning hong kong. What an amazing whirlwind shitstorm this is to watch.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how it all plays out. The Blizzard I liked hasn't existed for quite a while now so if they want to shoot themselves in the foot then hopefully it'll be a lesson learned by other companies that I do still root for.

    Decided to keep Gun Gun Pixies and its actually kinda fun and nowhere near as bad as some reviews made it out to be. Jumping is kinda janky but its more like jumping in MMOs and I'm too used to that already and adapted to it right away.

    FPS jumps between 30-60 a lot and looks pretty good to me (unlocked FRs don't bother me, especially when they stick to 60 most of the time), docked and handheld is pretty much the same. Honestly though, why the game isn't a locked 60 is beyond me.

    I keep having to cover my eyes during some scenes though.

    Well review embargos are up for Little Town Hero and my twitter feed is filled with nothing but stuff like "what a shame", "could have been good" and "crushing disappointment". I havent' seen this much unified disappointment for a videogame thats not some Fallout 76 style trashfire since Spirit Tracks.

    I can think of at least 18 million games just this year that share those sentiments

    https://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/little-town-hero

    And see the ones that didnt give it over 60.

    The metacritic is a shitshow. High ratings from nintendo fansites, because of course, and people butthurt about pokemon. I mean actual reviewers i know i can trust are like a repeating checklist of 'boring combat', 'runs like a bag of dicks', 'more basic than youkai wait' 'but at least the musics great' across the board independent of each other.

    Those are all RPGs, and hell FE doesn't have any adventure mechanics at all but at least DQ11 and XC2 do lol.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Dragon Quest is dead in the west ya'll lmao. I'm glad I know enough JP to understand DQ(since it's written for kids there) cause now after the Switch port bomba with all the effort put into it I doubt we are seeing the next entry in the series come west in any reasonable time frame.

    Catherine Full Body and Code Vein charted, but Dragon Quest did not, it's dead jim. Meanwhile #overpriced Link's Awakening was #4 for the month only behind Borderlands and the 2 sports game launches.

    I said it in the DQXI thread that the series was dead and yet a few posters wanted to argue with me about it. The game bombed hard, My store for example only sold two copies that I know of and I'm one of the people who bought it.

    Square Enix needs to scale the games budget back and accept it for what it is, A niche JRPG.

    That or just give it to Atlas so they know what to do with it. Funny enough the switch version is the best version cause of all the stuff they put in it.

    People who bought the PS4 version should be pissed.

    Budget is fine because it still sells millions in Japan, just doubtful they will be devoting much budget to a western release again. If one happens expect it even later without an english dub and with a bare minimum localization effort.

    The fact the Switch is where JRPGs go to sell and it even bombed on there in the west is just sad. There is literally no interest in this series in the west and I mostly blame Enix for that long before the merger. I mean fucking Catherine charted and it doesn't get anymore niche then that, plus it's an upgraded version of a far older game then DQXI and it was also only on a single platform. Who was the genius that decided to launch this game head to head with Zelda? Probably the same one that launched it head to head with Spider-Man lol...

    By lower budget I mean not do the VA and all.

    Right like how the fuck did they not learn with the PS4 release. They released it on top of Astra Chain,Zelda and even Daemon X Machina.

    I have never seen a company send a game out to die twice in a row even more so within a year of the first release, That's some next level shit.

    Dragon Quest is anything but niche in the only market that matters to it: Japan.

    You also talked about Square Enix and how they need to scale back DQ.

    They won't. They don't really care how bad it does in west. As long as it is success in Japan, they keep making them and putting big money into them.

    Their actions and statements disagree's with you.

    They jumped though MANY hoops to try to get it to sell in the West and they have openly stated if it didn't sell well the series likely won't return. They should scale back how much they spend to bring it to the West. The VA's wasn't needed at all.

    They also for whatever dumb ass reason seem to think it would stand toe to toe with big game releases. The sales on the PS4 got murdered because it released right next (in the same dam week) as Spiderman and then the same thing happen again with it releasing next to Links Awakening.
