Don’t get a switch lite. If you experience joycon drift you’ll need to send back the entire console since the controllers are part of the lite console.Thinking of getting a Switch Lite soon. Anyone got any good recommendations for games? Other than Pokemon of course.
Has anyone played Triangle Strategy? I was considering picking it up for Steam Deck.
I had a Switch Lite but ended up selling it because the screen is way too small for games that have lot of dialogues, but if you want to play Nintendo games (which don't have that much written dialogues) it's pretty good. My favorite games were Dragon Quest XI S, Ni No Kuni I, Bayonetta and Little Nightmares. Another good game is Lost In Random, I really liked the gameplay and the Tim Burton-esque atmosphere.I did consider the regular, but I just prefer having the more portable version as it suits my needs more.
Yeah, we talked about it quite a bit in the Nintendo thread when it came out earlier this year. It's probably my favourite game if the year, so definitely recommend. Just keep in mind it's quite story-driven.
Yeah I heard it's a lot of story over gameplay. I don't know if i'd like that honestly. I love a good story but I also just want to play.
The battles themselves are some of the more intense/long SRPG battles I've played in the genre in quite a while. They can go 30-40 mins and require really intense strategy + tactics. I mean that as a compliment too, in that you have a lot of cutscenes/story sequences followed by a very meaty battle, not just some 5 minute filler you walk all over.Yeah I heard it's a lot of story over gameplay.

100% this. Agree on the catch-up mechanic for leveling, I also thought a great feature was letting you keep EXP you received in a battle even if you failed. Provides a slight difficulty curve that the battles should get easier if you have to retry them.One of the aspects I appreciated the most with Triangle Strategy was that while the battles required strategy and planning which characters to bring, it never felt punishing for the sake of being difficult. The leveling up mechanics enable you to use your whole roster effectively, without letting you grind yourself too strong.
Turn based strategy games have a tendency to punish you harshly for making the slightest misstep (hello Fire Emblem and Advance Wars), but Triangle was more about the bigger picture. I never felt like I lost unfairly due to a harsh critical strike, and at the same time winning still felt very rewarding since it usually requires you to make sacrifices and being very efficient with the few healers you have at disposal.
Ok it has its flaws but I am kind of loving it. It feels like the first Sonic game in forever to have some ambition and he is the most controllable and responsive he's ever been in 3DPlaying Sonic Frontiers in just over an hour. This is MY year for oft delayed blue alien franchises

I think it's going for a lot. The story is a bit darker and closer to the Adventure tone. The cyberspace levels aren't too exciting but the open world and combat seem to be trying new things and it's probably the first time since Unleashed that they've gone for the earlier Adventure feelThank you for this! I was thinking of grabbing this tonight and disconnecting from ballot counting until tomorrow.
Does it reach peak Sonic in terms of ambition (i.e. Sonic Adventure 2)?
