    Ha, yes, I think that's the biggest part of it... Mario/Rabbids is turnbased but more about managing the field and finding/exploiting weak spots with the right characters than building up ultra-summonings or a zillion random encounters where all you do is select an action from a row of options. Grosly simplified of course
    I also loved the old star wars KOTOR games, and Mass Effect, so that kind of turn based I'm A-okay with!

    Same! I’ve got it downloaded so hopefully I will start this weekend. from the trailer it seems like it’ll be quite sizable. I’m curious how long it’ll play.

    RS2 is the best SFC-era RPG there is. Seriously. This is the best news of 2017 IMO.

    If you like simpicity and grid-map-based, look out for the new Fire Emblem that supposedly comes to Switch next year.

    Xenoblade I only bought because it is by Nintendo itself; I think the mechanics are overly complitacted early on in the game.

    I finally beat The Darker Side of the Moon last night after probably 50 tries. I immediately went back to see if I could do it again and well, practice makes perfect. It was SO hard at the start, though. I felt like throwing my controller quite a few times.

    ^Yassss.



    I really have to give BotW a ton of credit for single-handedly renewing my interest in gaming. Taking the ~160+ hours invested into that game into consideration, I've likely gamed more this year than the last 5 combined. So while it's sad to see that story coming to a definitive conclusion, I'm extremely satisfied with the game as a whole. I'm not sure if I want to try out Master Mode - I mean I still haven't even been able to get good enough to finish the Master Sword trials!

    I got a shit ton of e-shop gift cards for Xmas, so I'm looking at what to get (probably FINALLY Sonic Mania) - there's many games on sale right now so I suggest checking that out. Oxenfree is only $4.99, so I jumped at that.

    VS. Super Mario Bros. is out and will completely change how you feel about that game if you've never played the arcade version. Power-ups and enemies have been shifted around compared to the NES game, and several levels are changed around as well to make it much more difficult. They even subbed in a few "Lost Levels" from the then-new SMB2 in Japan just to be assholes. Good luck.

    Footage I recorded of myself in a Splatoon 2 - League battle with the three best players I'm acquainted with! =D.
