What are you playing on your Switch 2: Play Harder - Page 18 Chained-echoes-11-08-22-1

Chained Echoes then.  For the five of us who like JRPGs, this was low-key raved about at the end of last year.  Even beyond those five actually: a lot of favourable comparisons were made with the likes of Chrono Trigger, as a love letter to an age of videogames before JRPGs went fully anime nonsense.  I can't quite get past how much it looks like CrossCode, a game by the same outfit that others loved (82 Metascore) and that I was cold on.  The narrative is much better at least, and I am enjoying the tricks it plays with normal turn-based battling to prevent a 'solved system'.  

Anybody else had a look at this?  It's on GamePass I believe.

Should look at it, but this type JRPG doesn't anything for me.

Did someone listen to the Game Game Show GOTY episode, by any chance?

It doesn't for me really either - and yet I'm hooked. Really nice battle system in this. The new mechanic, keeping the meter in the Overdrive bar by judicious use of arts, makes this feel a lot more dynamic than your average takey-turny JRPG.

I'd actually say that the game doesn't have all that much else going for it. Bobbins art style, an epic plot let down by slightly odd writing, a strange level of divorce from the characters due to unexpressive art... and yet the battling has me absolutely hooked. That doesn't necessarily mean it's a great game, just an addictive one - but I reckon that, for those with a passing interest in RPGs of yesteryear, it's a no-brainer to wishlist or play off GamePass.
