This one does feel a lot better paced than New Leaf to me at this early stage. Them holding off with some stuff until later has really worked in its favour, however much some might have moaned about not having the Museum first thing. It's definitely also a right place right time thing.

Nope I don't think so, but I did use to watch the TV show until it started retreading the same ground.

It amazes me that so many people hate the pacing of this game. The way things are added to your island and the rate of population growth is a perfect fit for the setting.

I think it's expectation. People are used to having everything given them and can't deal with getting not quite so much quite so fast. See also: Dexit.

That was me. I don't watch Supernatural but I've listened to Jeremy on Dark Souls, Dark Tower and X-Men podcasts.

I'm fighting my way through Excite Truck. The motion control steering is something I am struggling to adapt to, much like how I would avoid it entirely in Mario Kart Wii. Considering a racing game requires precision controls, it's really frustrating when I turn and it doesn't immediately react. I spend half the race in the trees tapping the '2' button (itself, an unnecessary QTE). It's a shame because I've had fun on some of the tracks but the controls are just something I can't get past. Is there the option to use the Cube controller? I can't seem to find anything on the options menu Sad Blasting through beaches and mountains like some exotic version of TOCA is right up my street, but I don't think I'll see the end of this one.

I'm certain that it's only controlled with tilt motions on the Wii Remote. I'd encourage you to stick it out (as it's not that long a game), but if the controls aren't something you're adapting to, it might be best to just call it a day with Excite Truck. Me, I really like Excite Truck, but those memories are from summer 2007, a particularly happy time in my life. Thirteen years is a long time, and you're a better judge of it's quality nowadays than I am.

Hi!  I'm clearing out the DEEP BACKLOG.

For those who are unaware or have forgotten, the DEEP BACKLOG was my way of pretending to myself that I'd ever get back to a bunch of games that got buried under others coming along.  Trouble is, even now in what is a pretty quiet period for the Switch, I've got so much on (both games in my more immediate backlog and outside playing games) that I'm never realistically going to get back to these games.  For some, it's a sad omission of defeat; for some, a relieved one; and for some, I still harbour a secret hope that I'll get back to these games some day.  In order, then, of likelihood of return:

ASTRAL CHAIN:
 

LAPIS X LABYRINTH:
 

GUACAMELEE 2:
 

KATAMARI DAMACY REROLL:
 

BABA IS YOU:
 

OKAMI:
 

SUPER MARIO MAKER 2:
 

On that note: if anybody here would like to buy my copies of Astral Chain or Lapis x Labyrinth special edition (all bits and pieces still in the box), I'll happily send them to you.  Heck, I'd say the same about Skyrim, Dragon Quest XI, and The World Ends With You: Final Remix.  Half the cheapest cost you can find from a decent (not CEX) reputable (not CEX) retailer plus postage: bung a link with a price my way and I'll bung a game yours.

Gosh, I used to think we had quite similar tastes in games, but I think we might actually be quite different. I loved Astral Chain, Katamari Damacy, and a second playthrough of Okami (though yes, the characters were a bit suspect, apart from lovely Ammy herself). Guacamelee 2 was good but I absolutely get your point there - I found it erred on the side of frustrating platforming a bit too much.

Is TWEWY:FR actually worth it at all? I was interested in it (not least because NGamer loved it, and I still associate Jay with his former TWEWY avatar (RIP)) and never owned it on DS, but I didn't get the impression it was necessarily worth my time on Switch. It's been on my eShop wishlist for yonks but it's never on sale, and I am an eShop sale whore.

I've still got the old avatar saved on my laptop! But sometimes, it's time to move on...

As for TWEWY:FR - yes, but only if you can't find a copy of the original on DS or if you can't be arsed pulling out the old handheld. I do think the lack of the second screen really hurts some of the game's uniqueness and the Switch touchscreen really isn't up to much when compared to the DS's, but it's still TWEWY at the end of the day.

I pretty much agree with what Jay says.  It's probably still worth it if you haven't played TWEWY, but there are better ways to play it.

Much though I'd be surprised if anyone agreed strictly with my odd and very picky taste in games, I wouldn't base any differential in that on my second playthrough of anything!  I'm not much of a replayer, but Okami is still solid gold.  Katamari... I still like bits of it, you know?  With more time/fewer games I think I'd want to play more of it just to find out what happens to the weird blocky kids.  

Astral Chain yep no, not for me, tastes diverge.

A lot of us dropped of Astral Chain, it's by no way Platinum's worse game but just something about it that wasn't as fun as a TMNT or Transformers

I wouldn't say it was a lot since I can only think of you, Cappa (I think) and now Balla that didn't finish it on this forum.

I much preferred it to either of those, and I'm the Transformers guy!

I will agree that it isn't up there with the Bayonettas or Vanquish, but honestly what action game is?

I did in the 2000's with things like Ninja Gaiden when it was the one game I had for a few weeks along time to play it. now can't be arsed trying to Git Gud on something I didn't like the investigation bits were boring as hell.

Also Devil May Cry 3 is your answer along with Ninja Gaiden

Haaaang on - the Xbox guy doesn't like Ninja Gaiden? Best game on the system mate. That's not Halo or Chaos Theory.

I love Ninja Gaiden.

I'm on about back then had time to play and get good at it but now with work and so many forms of entertainment I'm not going to spend time on something like Astral Chain if I don't find enjoyable and it was the investigation parts that bored me.

Yeah, DMC probably comes closest. Which makes sense, they're cousins.

Fair. Astral Chain is one game I wanted a Switch for so will pick it up at some point, but it's interesting that a lot of you dropped it. Just got a 100 hour RPG game to get out the way first.

I gave up on Astral Chain too, but recognised that it was good. It just came out at a busy time for games, and I was more interested in playing FIFA 20, Yooka-Laylee & The Impossible Lair and so on. I'd have probably tried it again now, when it's much quieter, if I hadn't left my copy in my flat over on the south east. It's not quite ready for my review in this thread, I still think there's a chance I'll give it another go.
