    Thank you for the input, Kupi! Sounds like something I’ll probably skip

    So I’m still looking around for good JRPG stuff. I remember that I Am Setsuna game had some hype, how did that turn out?

    Romancing Saga 2 and 3 are on there if you're interested. RS3 is the easier of the two.

    I’ll have to check those out. I feel I remember those games were pretty obtuse?

    Yeah I'd use a guide if you get stuck but honestly they were some of the best experience in video games I've had in recent times.

    A mental image popped into my head today that I think would be rad.

    Take Pilotwings and Breath of the Wild it. Just give the player a huge-ass contiguous map and their choice of flying machine, and slowly expand their available flying machines and maximum fuel reserves as they clear licensing challenges that you find by just flying around however you feel like.

    I bounced off of Disgaea 5 hard because of the character design and early dialog.

    The whole “Babs” chapter of DQ Builders 2 almost lost me. So gross.

    I’ll take my JRPGs non-oversexualized, thanks.

    You mean non-sexualized, right? I mean, if those games are over-sexualized, then that implies a right amount of sexualizing.

    I don’t mind a little thirst. In DQB2’s case it just felt gang-bangy and ew.

    I can’t even recall what specifically put me off of Disgaea 5, just that I was thinking “oh crap, I can’t read this to my 5yo who wants to watch all the video games.”

    I spoiled myself and got Origami king and the new fairly tail game.

    I have no information on the actual fairy tail manga/anime but the box art looked cool and i'm attracted to shiny things that look cool.

    I gotcha. I own DQB2 but haven't played it yet, but I looked it up, sounds like the skirting-the-line-of-brothel that Dragon Quest sometimes does. Puff puffs and such.

    And yeah Disgaeas aren't for kids in the room. They're demons, they do cuss and act nasty! Actually Disgaea 4 has been kind of shocking. Some characters call women straight up "bitch." Feels like something that was more accepted in 2011 when it came out.

    My Flip Grip arrived today and it's great. Pinball is of course amazing with it, Downwell looks terrific but I was also thrilled to see Mat Mania rotated properly. Wonderful little gizmo I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy.

    Was the other Square Enix game Lost Sphear any good? It was made by the same team as the Setsuna one and looks like more retro jrpg gameplay.

    I made it an hour or so into it before just stopping and never feeling any urge to pick it up again.

    Yeah, the demo did not impress me at all either.

    In my cargo shorts, it fits fine if I take the joycons off. Them in one pocket, the Switch itself in another. Not quite as convenient as a smaller traditional handheld, but do-able.

    I’m not even a dad and I do this. I’ve freaked myself out a few times grabbing for my phone or wallet and it wasn’t there because I put it in the wrong pocket for whatever reason.

    I am wearing cargo shorts right now. And back when we could go places, they would be laden down with stuff like the program or map of where we were, water bottles, wife's wallet, sister-in-law's wallet, phone(s), and kids sippy cups or toys.
    Though last summer I augmented with a shoulder bag to take some weight off and expand water carrying capacity.

    Oh, and my switch (with joycons) fit in the front pocket of both my cargo shorts and my work khakis.

    Earlier this year I finally got around to playing Witcher 3. It's a gorgeous game, even on the Switch, and Geralt is a likeable enough character. But the experience just didn't really stick with me. The world is beautiful, but its societies and people never really came alive for me.

    So it's fine. But there are a lot of games I like more.

    And yet... recently I've really felt the urge to play it again and I don't really know why. After all, the experience wasn't even that impactful first time around. Maybe it's because... what with one thing and another... I kind of feel the need to play something that's mostly about running around a beautifully rendered rugged wilderness.

    Oh, yeah, no I did all the DLC as well. Blood & Wine was fun. Very fairytale knights and all that. A nice little conclusion. Also, it introduced the Skellige deck to Gwent - which I unfortunately couldn't make work, so I just defaulted to Nilfgaard Spies.

    Didn't care much for Heart of Stone. The wedding and the house in the painting were good, but that DLC's main characters besides Shani were just... unpleasant.

    Download was a very common term in the 90s!

    Now go tell 90s-me that Grand Theft Auto would release several more versions, and #5 would be a 100,000 megabyte game. And it would take zero floppy disks.

    It’s enormous game in file size. On PC it’s nearly 70gb and I just can’t figure out why. There’s a lot of reused assets, the models are textures aren’t particularly high res, but it’s pushing huge file sizes.

    Ah well, you see...

    The thing about XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is that it's such an extensive reworking of the game that... base XCOM 2 is literally all separate files. You've got the base XCOM 2 installed and also the WOTC XCOM 2 installed.
