Mainly playing Dead Cells on the switch still at the moment. Took a while to get the first boss cell but it seems relatively easy to reach and beat The Hand of the King on every run with no boss cells selected now. Reaching the Hand of the King with one boss cell is proving to be tricky but I'm sticking with it. Grt8 game :awe:
I'm still playing this, pretty much exclusively. I've got two boss cells now which equates to 'Very Hard' and it isn't kidding :lolno: Hits from enemies wipe out your energy pretty ferociously and there are next to no health recharges between levels. I can't imagine what it's like with five boss cells :wtf:

It's still so much fun though. A good average run lasts an hour or so which to me is the perfect amount of time to spunk on a game in the evening between other things. It's really addicting trying to get the 30 or 60 kills with taking no hits to open the bonus rooms between levels. It's equally as infuriating when you lose a **** loads of cells as you've been hoarding them and trying to get them to the The Blacksnith to upgrade the Legendary Forge. Death from the Cursed Chests can **** right off too :mad: :awe:

I keep hearing good things about Dead Cells. It's on my list now :thumbup:
I do love the Switch. The PS4 gathers more and more dust since I got one. :)

Started Breath of the Wild yesterday. While the game looks great for a handheld game, the gameplay feels like torture, long walks, unclear quests, weapons that break fast. I‘m not sure this is for me :problem:

I really liked it. I found the walking/horse riding bits quite relaxing. You can teleport later, so that should work out for you. You will also get better more durable weapons later.

I would have preferred more traditional dungeons instead of the shrines personally. Hopefully they go back to that format in the sequel. Could also do without the voice acting.

It’s possibly the Zelda game I’ve enjoyed the least. I was really excited to play it and so disappointed when I did. It’s such a chore and the breakable weapons are a completely pointless mechanic and remove any sense of achievement and excitement when you pick up something new, which isn’t Zelda imo. I ended up not using my best weapons so I didn’t break them
until I got the Master Sword but that wasn’t much better
Don’t get me started on the **** cooking :problem:

It has issues keeping a stable framerate. I found it bothersome enough to stop playing it. With that kind of style it really needs a stable framerate. It looks amazing the times when it does run at solid 60.

BOTW has been the one game in many years that took me back to how I felt playing games as a child.

As for Nintendo - I appreciate them and their first party games far more since I've had children. Family friendly big budget games don't exist on other platforms.

I grew bored of Mario odyssey quickly, but kids love it and understandably so. The assist mode is brilliant

The whole million moons and costumes seems like a pointless grind to me, but for some kids, it’s hours and hours fun

BOTW was wonderful.

Switch has become another Nintendo console that I buy maybe one or two proper games a year for. Too many Wii U ports. Can't remember the last Nintendo game I bought actually. It's a SEGA AGES console right now.

Being so jaded i'm guessing the neo geo and it's accompanying forum would be a good option.
I do agree the switch is great for adults and kids alike. I do have some kids games on the ps/xbox but the ones on switch are much easier and a lot more fun for mine.

BOTW might be one of the greatest games ever made. I've not sunk that many hours on a console game for a decade.

In other news, The Touryst is currently on sale in the e-shop and is well worth a look:
