    I love watching people play games like Skyrim and Fallout, but I am fuck bad at them. I'm also fairly decent at Final Fantasy games exactly right up to that point where "don't cross this line to the third act until you're leveled up enough because there is NO turning back", and I ALWAYS cross that line unknowingly and am totally fucked for the rest of the game. Still haven't beaten a FF. I crossed that line in 7, 8, 9, and 10.
    Yeah I've never beaten an FF game, or any JRPG for that matter.

    It's a genre I've always been interested in getting into, but there's just SO MUCH out there. I don't even know where to start.

    I recommend Xenosaga and Fire Emblem (off the top of my head).

    I lose interest in turn-based combat. My tiny attention span needs real-time battles. I played through several hours of Persona 5 and quite enjoyed its depth, but after a while, I needed something that moved at a quicker pace. I keep meaning to go back to it, but I don't. Now it's been so long since I played, I don't know if I'd remember everything I need to remember.

    I have Persona 5. Maybe I should try that out.

    Just always been nervous about starting it without having played any of the others.

    That's the main reason I've avoided Persona 5. Some of the turn-based battles take way too long to get through and end up boring me out.

    The hugely anticipated announcement of a new Switch has finally come and...

    It has a 7" screen.

    That's it.

    Okay, biggest disappointment of the year so far.

    New Switch model out in October, with an OLED screen. Increase from 6.2" to 7" screen doesn't seem like a lot on paper, but it'll probably feel significant when in your hands. Also a wider adjustable kickstand. I'll probably upgrade sometime next year. Still getting a PS5 first.

    And after trying lots of different survival/crafting games, I've discovered I do not like them -- I was just chasing the dragon that is The Long Dark. Most survival games consist of "production chains" of various resources until you reach a certain point where you build an impenetrable, self-sustaining fortress and effectively win. The Long Dark otoh is quiet, simple, and brutally tough: no zombies, no base building, just fending off hunger, thirst, and cold while attempting to find a cave or shelter to sleep for the night. Not a replacement for actual wilderness survival training, but it's the closest thing I have found.

    I also like some survival-adjacent city builders, like Banished and They Are Billions (where you have to build a city before a massive zombie horde arrives -- also brutally tough).

    For me the OLED is huge. The graphics overall are better on the Switch than they were on the Vita, but I sure do miss that OLED screen sometimes.

    It's neat for sure, but there has been a good 4 months of build up that there would be a brand new kind of "Switch Pro" coming, with 4K output and better graphical power in both docked and handheld modes.

    Several very reputable sources were like, 100% certain it was coming.

    So this just felt like it hit with a thud a bit.

    I've been playing Ring of Pain. If you like Slay the Spire (Beat the Devil) you should check it out.

    Never heard of this. Looks weird and cool. Slay the Spire is a personal favorite... but what is Beat the Devil?

    I tried this and enjoyed it, but I honestly wish there wasn't an attempt at stories or quests. Just get me to the deck-building and battling already! Still, pretty good game that I'm probably not done with. Again, not a replacement for Slay the Spire for me.

    I should check out Slay the Spire too, then. Know if it's on PS4/5?

    I've been sitting on a copy of Pillars of Eternity for years and decided to try it finally today. Back in the day I was a huge Baldur's Gate/Icewind Dale fan back in the day, and this looks to be a great return to that type of game.

    Xenosaga, really? are you trying to kill him? also, Fire Emblem is a Strategy RPG

    if you want to get into classic JRPGs, play Chrono Trigger. or Dragon Quest 11.

    modern JRPGs: FF7 Remake

    Is Dragon Quest 11 an OK jumping on point?

    it's perfect actually. such a breezy, fun, gorgeous game but with absolutely rock solid mechanics.

    check out Tim Rogers' great review:
