I was deciding between Switch and PS4 for Xmas and found the Switch too "light". Also, I don't have much time atm but at some point I know I will buy GTA V to finally play the game I've been wanting to play for years. Played all the previous ones too for hours days weeks months so it's gotta happen I'm afraid :D hope I made the right decision. No regrets thus far, my son absolutely loves playing Knack II hehe!

I've finished Fire Emblem Warriors which was a good time, playing as Chrom was just ace. I have no idea why I like his character so much but oh well. Now I can't wait for the proper Fire Emblem game. 

I've also finished Steamworld Dig 2 which is a masterpiece in exploring platformers. It improved massively on the first game and unlockable items just make exploring the caves so much fun, I only found 40% of the secrets so I'm very tempted to continue playing as the puzzles are decent. If you want an excellent 2D Metroid like game I'd strongly recommend it, however Steamworld games go on sale often so maybe wait, my play through was around 7 hours so while it's worth the price the sale price of £12 odd quid is better value. 

Currently playing is only Pokemon now but I'm just chipping at it here and there so I'm only just coming to the end of the second island. Still awaiting a bloody patch for Batman but I think ill just play it now knowing it won't save as I'm tired of waiting. 

Pick up wise I've added two new Switch games to my physical collection being This Is The Police and Axiom Verge. TITP is a SIM management game so I thought it was worth a shot considering I love FMM but I'm unsure if I'll like it haha. Axiom Verge is another 2D Metroid type game created by one person which I've always wanted to try but I never got to it on WiiU so I'm happy to have a physical copy now. 

I've also placed two preorders for Dragon Quest Builders (the demo is ace) and Darkest Dungeon which is a rogue like RPG which looks brutally fun. 

Edit - Went back to Batman and now I'm fed up! I decided to screw it and just play it knowing my choices wouldn't save and then half way through the chapter the game crashes! As it doesn't save I've lost it all and there is no way to skip through it. How the hell can a game that doesn't save not be patched in 2/3 months? I love what I played as the story really got its hooks into me but this game is my only Switch regret! Such a cool concept ruined by a shit port and no support, I'm done with Telltale now. Played the first hour of C3 4 times now since I've had it and I can't progress, absolute trash.

Update time!! 

Finished/Random

This Is The Police - Finished it Friday night and it was an interesting and unique experience. The theme are dark and the game is intentionally frustrating but i enjoyed it enough to put 15-20 hours into it. The story is really well paced and it does get it's hooks into you but the ending is rather underwhelming. A sequel has been announced and it's something I'll keep my eye on. 

Steamworld Dig 2 - They announced a physical release :@. Well annoyed since I gave in and got it digitally :@. I suppose I'm double dipping now. 

Axiom Verge - Still in the wrapper 

Currently Playing

Dragon Quest Builders - Came Friday but I didn't get to start it until today, so far I've just replayed the start which is the demo. Imo Dragon Quest games build wonderful worlds and characters! 

Pokemon Ultra Sun - Not made much progress unfortunately. 

New Pick Ups

Fifa 18 & Lego City Undercover - Just ordered them now so I'll have them in a few days, both on sale on Amazon for around £22 each, and there is a save £5 promo code when you spend £35 so got both for £40 which I think is good. I've wanted another multiplayer game to rival MK8 so these should get some play. I intended to order LA Noir but it was sold out so I went for Lego City which I wanted to get anyway, @UKFootballScore you played that right?

Pre-Order - Darkest Dungeon 

@Real_Random - How'd you find LA N and Stardew Valley?

@AshezI really enjoyed La Noire, it's the first time I played it and I was very impressed with it, only problem was I finished it a week after I bought it. I found that it was a little bit choppy though and the load times were unbearable but still it was a good game.

Stardew Valley, very nice game, it's both fun and relaxing to play. Although I do find it's easy to lose interest because of the repetitiveness of the game, it's still enjoyable and for $17 AUD is good value considering how many hours I have put into it.

LAN is staying reasonably cheap here at around £25 and I've been tempted a few times, just not felt like adding it to my back log as yet. That, Skyrim and Doom are ones I'm interested in but the last two have held their value pretty well (£40-50. Maybe I'll pick it up once I've cleared what I've got, tbh a games length doesn't bother me as long as I enjoy it and the price reflects it's length. 

I've always wanted to play Stardew Valley as I really enjoyed Rune Factory on the 3DS, or the first half anyway. Only reason I haven't got it yet is because a physical release has been rumoured.

Just played two matches of Fifa in handheld mode and I have to say I'm impressed! Looking forward to getting the family round and truly testing it now :D

@Real_Random What you make of Dragon Quest Builders?

I quite liked the demo I've played so far, it seems to be a good game but not completely sold yet, I might wait a bit if I do get it

It appealed to me as I like the standard Dragon Quest games (JRPGs) with Dragon Quest 8 and 9 being two of my favourite games. I also rather enjoyed Minecraft back in the day but I hated how the game had no point so this mix really caught my attention. Unfortunately the demo is the start of the game and progress doesn't carry over so all I've played of the actual release is the demo part again but I'm hoping to play more over the weekend. 

Lego City Undercover turned up today :). 

Saying that I looked at my collect and in 5/6 years of the WiiU I have 23 physical games, on the Switch I have 15 with one on pre-order in under a year :o! And there are a number of titles I want when the price is right (Doom, Skyrim, LA Noire, Arms, Street Fighter, Bomberman, and a few indies I'm debating ordering :p). I bloody love the Switch!!

Oh, I see lol. My comment mentioned handheld mode then you said console and I was thinking that the Switch is the console version lol :S

Had my brothers round today so we messed around on fifa, at first they gave it grief but after a few games we had a blast. My one brother has a XB1 while the other has a PS4 and they play a lot of fifa but they seemed to enjoy the Switch version. It almost feels more arcadey than older fifa games I played on XB1, to me anyway. 

What's so wrong with the XB/PS versions?

I may have to try the switch version then. The Xbox version I have just seems a whole lot more competitive. It’s not casual gamer friendly if that makes sense? They’ve changed the whole defending to manual, there’s just way too many button presses for my liking

The Switch version reviewed reasonably but got shit on for lacking features. @Real_Randomis the guy to talk to about Fifa Switch as his play time is sky high :p. I've only played 3-4 hours of it so far. 

I know what you mean about fifa getting complex though, I've felt that before. The Switch version has "two button mode" I saw today as a control option but I've not tried it

I remember the two button control on one of the older console versions. I remember trying it once and it sucked :laugh:

I think it's intended for two players using a joycon each on Switch.

Sure I read somewhere that fifa on switch was based on an older version maybe fifa 16.

That sounds familiar. I know it doesn't have the frostbite engine which started with 2017.

How this thread has got 10 pages is beyond me

I like talking to myself :P

I suppose it's a consequence of posting on Vibe about saves and how I like talking about games, this is just my record. The Switch took off and in time people joined in :).

Never liked or trusted ign reviews tbh. Just read the review and it's not reviewing the game on its own merit but by comparing it to other versions, tbh that's pretty poor.
