    And once again the cycle of "Cloudeagle starts thinking he should play Octopath/Cloudeagle reads posts about forumers getting annoyed with the game in ways that would annoy Cloudeagle/Cloudeagle decides he shouldn't play Octopath" is complete.

    Oh, Octopath's optional post-game mega-boss is by far the least of that game's problems.

    And I say this as someone who enjoyed Octopath.

    Oh shit, Maneater is coming to Switch. I had that one on my Steam wish list since it was announced, but it didn't come to Steam. This news pleases me.

    I want to try Octopath again. And Bravely Default. Eventually I will suffer through them. I mean, who doesn't enjoy a little suffering?

    *I actually really like the gameplay in Bravely Default. I just find the characters and the story kind of irritating.

    Ringfit is fun! I'm not normally active, so it kicked my ass, but I had fun while it was doing so.

    I'm not fit or active and Ringfit has been sitting on my desk since release.

    I'm literally worried it may kill me based on what numerous, actually-athletic people have said about it.

    Is there a cheat code?

    Yes...?

    It's called exercise. :rotate:

    But seriously, I'm not in great shape at all and I can manage a couple stages a session.

    You've already used the cheat code. If you don't play it, it can't kill you. And if you don't die in a game, you win.

    Sweat and exercise sound like the OPPOSITE of a cheat code. That sounds like honest to god hard work. What I want is something like a respec mod or something that will let me reset my IRL attributes so I can decrease my weight by like 125 and increase my stamina and length.

    Well, there is a cheat code of sort. Once you know what motions the joycons want, you can just fake it.

    Really, if I had to say something negative about it, it's that it treats all exercises equally, which can be a major problem when factoring in the general difficulty setting which just affects how many reps of a thing you do. Some exercises are super easy to do even if you're a bowl of jelly like me. Others can fucking kill you. And you won't know until you actually do it and... die. I'm looking at you, planks and mountain climber. So there's kind of no fine tuning the thing. Crank up the difficulty and you get 30 reps of shit you can do, and 30 reps of shit you can't. And vice versa. Your only real option is to just never do the exercise, which you generally have complete control over.

    Ohhh, yeah, that exists. It costs a lot of money and you'll need some time off work. As a bonus you won't be allowed to workout for a week or two.

    How did you know that Ringabel is the one that I hate the most?

    when I found out Ringabel isn't the dedicated sleezebag character, but rather just the first you meet, was when I stopped playing Bravely Default

    (I very much did not enjoy the gameplay so I had little reason to stay on anyway)

    I didn't find that to be the case. I'm pretty sure it asks me to do 20+ squats but only 18 plank raises.

    We’re enjoying ringfit as a family. The difficulty level is very customisable and the game structure definitely helps with the motivation to get something done each day. It’s interesting that it’s mostly resistance core muscle building stuff rather than just calorie burning aerobic exercise like most exercise video games. I feel like if I keep with it it’s going to be doing me good even if just doing a little a day.

    Grabbed Valfaris because it seemed like a heavy metal themed Contra Clone. It mostly delivers! An added melee weapon and a decent upgrade system are pretty great. Slightly unresponsive controls make the crushing difficulty sometimes frustrating, but a generous checkpoint system alleviates that a bit. It does have an issue with enemies that respawn way too quick. They might be able to tweak that with a patch. All in all though I’m digging it as a hardened veteran of the Contra franchise. Plus the metal theme is badass.

    I'm about 60% through Vampyr switch port and outside of the one time a priest glitched through a wall while T-posing with his holy stun ability stuck on causing me to stagger against a wall until i died it's been pretty good.

    I'd give the game a solid 6/10 because the combat is tiresome and no manual save.

    Welp, Gamestop just put a bunch of untitled Switch SKUs in their system, which is something that happens a little while before a new Nintendo Direct.

    A guy with a track record of predicting stuff is saying the Direct will hit January 16, but who knows if that'll pan out.

    There's speculation that the japanese splatoon twitter post celebrating new years 2020 is hinting at new splatoon content. Either more new content for splatoon 2 or splatoon 3. All they actually announced for 2020 so far are splatoon 2 weapon balance patches dropping this week and later in spring.

    It's been long enough that the announcement of a new Smash Bros. Ultimate character you can play RIGHT NOW is a decent possibility.

    I certainly would be all over a Splatoon 3. Not sure I'd expect one this year, but I've no doubt we'll see one sooner or later. The game sold rather well, especially in Japan were it sold double the numbers of BotW.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they at least announce one this year.

    The last fighter in the fighter pass was slated to come out by February 2020, and they've been pretty consistent in revealing the character about a month before release. I'd assume we are just going to get an announcement of the character and they'll drop in early/mid February. Maybe they'll surprise us with a "AVAILABLE NOW!" or even reveal what the plan is for the next batch. If we're really lucky maybe they'll do an "AVAILABLE NOW!" and announce the first fighter of the next batch...but that seems WAY too good to be true.
