I love how fluid the battles feel in Sparks of Hope, the way you can move all your characters freely each turn as many times as you want is just great for setting up team jumps, using abilities, etc. I like how distinctive all the heroes play too, combined with the Sparks you can make each one really unique, and also how unlike in the first game there aren't any restrictions to your team configuration. Really loving the game so far.
Edge serves c*nt. Shadow the Hedgehog could NEVER.

I’ve not bought a Switch game all year I don’t think, due to money, responsibilities etc, but just used my Christmas Amazon voucher to buy Sparks of Hope. Tossing between that, Bayonetta 3 and Persona 5 but the latter has some mad delayed delivery that means I wouldn’t get it until starting my next intense teaching placement… and I low-key found the original Mario Rabbids super compelling and more memorable than Bayo nn. I knew nothing about Persona 5 beyond being aware of the name until about 10 mins ago, and it sounds cool. I have limited JRPG experience but it looks fun.

Me not even considering Pokémon Scarlet/Violet… I’ve truly checked out ladies! And I feel fine. All my gays bought it and then I heard not a peep about it since which told me all I needed to know I think.
 
Voice acting generally doesn't really bother me even if it's subpar, but Beep-O's over the top elder theater gay ~I am acting~ energy is starting to get on my nerves ff. Not only does it not match the character at all, but the delivery makes moments that could otherwise have been funny fall totally flat.

Also it’s just a bad C3PO impression nn
 
So I brought MK8D home for the holidays and it's a hit with my parents. It's hilarious watching them race on 100cc. My mom can't stop tilting the controller no matter how many times we tell her she has to use just the stick. Their favorite course is Toad Harbor nn and their least favorite any course that's dark and might have less visible paths to take like Boo Lake and Grumble Volcano.

If anyone's interested, you can buy eShop codes at 10% off here with the code XMAS10. It's pretty great because with that combined with the double gold points campaign Nintendo is currently doing, you can basically save 20% on everything you get from the eShop (in addition to any ongoing discounts), since you spend 10% less for the eShop credit and then gain back 10% of what you spend in gold points.
 
I have finally finished playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3 after over a hundred hours, I did indeed cry and await the DLC.
I dived back in about a week ago after finishing Pokemon Scarlet and I'm not ready for it to end. Definitely one of the best games I've played in a long, long time!

Currently on chapter 6 and honestly, Mio doing the lil switch with M and reappearing with hair down to her ass in a futuristic moncler-looking body suit.. puss wig. When the game asks whether or not you want to cut her hair.. she's keeping those inches!!
 
Spent the whole game waiting to unlock the ability to interact with those shiny spots on the ground in Sparks of Hope, but it turns out all you have to do is just spin on top of them

The way I knew to immediately do this - it’s a Mario game staple of some sort isn’t it? I can’t actually place the exactly how I knew dd.

Edge is low-key a flop to me so far. She(/They) is the only one I’m like meh about in terms of abilities as well as character. Save your OCs and give me Rosalina or Yoshi, @Ubisoft!

I think the spiral symbol looking pretty similar to the stuff you interact with with Beep-O is what threw me off. I didn't even realise you could spin until I was in the fifth planet, and even then it was by accident nn. I was expecting you'd get to return to the Mushroom Kingdom too, given there was one of those spots there, but it turns out that wasn't the case.

The main problem with Edge is her reaction ability is pretty useless, but if you invest in the movement skill tree instead and equip her with a Spark that boosts movement damage (I go with the vamp dash one), she can deal a lot of damage and cover a lot of ground each turn by repeatedly dashing into enemies.
 
Hello! I've been looking into some youtube videos of the new Fire Emblem game and it looks like it's gonna be quite a wonderful game. But I have never played a single Fire Emblem before and I was wondering if anyone can recommend me diving into the series?

I'm asking because I've lately been having quite some time constraints in life so I tend to play games that are less time-consuming and requires less thought when playing. Fire Emblem seems to require quite much from you gameplay-wise dd.

Fire Emblem can be a very punishing series nn. With permadeath, once a unit runs out of health in combat they're dead for good. Later entries allow you to turn this mechanic off or tinker with it. In terms of entry points, it depends what software options you have: Three Houses is great but the least conventional Fire Emblem experience, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as a starting point. If you have the resources to start with Awakening on 3DS that's the most accessible game in terms of being able to turn off permadeath while introducing more of the modern mechanics that have persisted in the series.

If you're strictly looking for options on the Switch I think the only entry they've ported is the original NES and I...wouldn't recommend starting there. I still think Three Houses is worth playing, it's a ton of fun especially the first go around, but just be aware Engage will likely be quite a bit different!
