Steamworld Quest (believe in the clockwork heart of the cards) Steamworld-quest-announced-2

Out today. I'm downloading it as soon as I get home, in my third attempt to get on with an Image & Form game. I'm hoping that it being a turn-based RPG will help with that. Anybody else joining me?

It is a tad pricy but seeing I liked Heist and Dig 2, not so much Dig 1 as it's your fav type of game Balla. I do like an RPG as well which this one seems Paper Mario-ish then let's say a Final Fantasy.

Hot on the heels of the worst music in games, we have the worst voice acting in games! Laughing What the f**k accent is that meant to be?

Also Laughing at the story being 'the gods were bored so they mucked up the world'.

I'm not sure if I'd get a lot out of it as I'm not usually big on card-based RPGs and their ilk. How's it playing, Balla?

Early signs suggest that the randomness isn't as bad as you might think, what with a generous hand size and two redraws per turn; but I've played three battles thus far. Ask me again in a few days?

The dialogue's a lot more charming when the voice acting goes quiet...

You ever played Steamworld Heist, Jay? If not I think you'd get on with that way more, also for me it is far and away the best game in the Steamworld series.

I have not, no! I've not played any of the Steamworld games, incidentally...

Heist is fantastic you should definitely play heist if you like turn based strategy in the slightest. It's like a 2D Mario + Rabbids if that helps?

I'm definitely going to get this, but not immediately. I should be getting Days Gone today and I just started Okami on Switch (and when I say "just started" I mean the opening dialogue took like 20 minutes so I stopped as soon as I could control anything).

How's the SWQ treating you, reckon it's worth the £23?

I'm enjoying it so far!  I can see myself actually finishing this one.  The combat's pretty fun, the deck-building is tight (24 cards between three party members means you're unlikely to get lost in cards), and the story/writing/characters are strong.  That latter part's the key, I think, for a JRPG.  Dividing the experience into levels is something no JRPG worth its salt should ever do, and the cut-scene skip is lousy; but otherwise I'm having a good time thus far, all of three chapters in. Thumbs Up!

I wouldn't be skipping cutscenes as it's I play a story based game, otherwise, I might as well play FIFA.

What's up with the levelling?

I’ve found the story to be pretty poor so far, I like the game mechanically but the story isn’t landing for me

Meh, there are only six or so types of stories in the world anyway.  What matters is how it's told.  I think the telling is whimsical enough. I had been getting a bit bored of the battling to be honest, given how many enemies you get chucked at you; but then I hit Chapter 5 and they switched things up a bit.

I've had to go back to a couple of chapters to get chests I've missed.  It comes in handy then!
