    I'm going to get it, no doubt. Looks like the perfect dumb game to let me forget about life for an hour or 10.

    I’m so hyped for Luigi’s Mansion. I think it might be a top 5 switch title.

    Gotta be honest when I downloaded goose game I didn't know it was a puzzler. I just thought it was a pointless game where you are just an asshole goose. Don't get me wrong I like it...I just didn't know at first.

    Anyone getting Witcher? I bought it at around the time I had my first kid, so I never had time to play past maybe 10 hours.

    Everyone always raves about the game, and it is getting great reviews (didn’t think the Switch would be powerful enough, but looks like it holds up well), so I think I will pull the trigger on physical copy sometime before Christmas.

    Also looking to get it before Christmas. There’s some solid November titles dropping that I want to prioritize first.

    I got about 50 hours into Witcher the first time I played and my save file corrupted while transferring it to a newer Xbox. That really discouraged me from doing it all again at the time but I’ve dodged spoilers for several years now hoping to come back to it eventually.

    the games are more like 85-90% the same rather than exactly the same

    version exclusive pokemon was always the reason in the past. but over time they started making larger changes between games. seems like there could be a few version exclusive gyms this time around, which means theres probably a good bit more too.

    I think in this one it changes entire gyms; the speciality of the leaders depends on which version you’re playing. Changes up starter pokemon choice and team composition strategy a bit.

    I’ve heard that. The main series has random encounters right?

    Yes, but also allows for strategic battles in the wild.

    Idk what the breeding mechanics are, but they’re the lifeblood of the meta game for the main series. Honestly, if you really get into it, it makes the main story an afterthought.

    Playing Luigi with my 5 y/o. He’s pretty skilled with the controller, but he isn’t very thorough with the game, so he always asks me to help. I end up backtracking all over the place trying to find what he missed. Even with that being my parameters for the game, it is pretty damn fun.

    Some mons are available only to the specific game. There were rumors that gyms could be different, but I don't know on that. I'm sure there's someone else that can tell you more.

    I've tried reading about it, but it's really a lot of nothing. Different pokemons and possible different gyms, which means nothing to me because I don't know enough about the series. Haven't paid any attention to it since GameBoy Color days. A lot of people going with Sword.

    Apparently a lot of jimmies have been rustled over the lack of a lot of species of Pokémon.

    That’s what the Pokebank is for brahs.

    They may succumb to community pressure and vow to make that happen. But Nintendo devs don’t typically support their games post-launch if they’re not broken, from what I’ve experienced.
