Planning on getting my birthday gift early this year. Two $20 eshop cards. Getting the Pokemon Shield DLC and Dragon Quest 2. Having a heck of a time choosing another game. Starred the ones I'm really interested in, but it's hard to choose. flower;

 

Ones I'm deciding between under the cut.

 

Spoiler

*Dragon Quest 2 $5.19 26 coins
*The Flame in the Flood $4.49 23 coins
Don't Starve $4.99 25 coins

Toki Tori $0.49 3 coins
Strike! Ten Pin Bowling $7.49 38 coins
Desktop Bowling $5.17 26 coins
*Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King $7.49 38 coins (this one is a nice throwback to old school Zelda games)

Narrowed it down a bit.

The Flame in the Flood is a great survival game, especially for beginners in the genre. It's still plenty challenging but it feels a little more forgiving than most survival games. Really great soundtrack too.

Crypt of the NecroDancer is a blast, just be aware that it is as difficult as most roguelikes—you're going to go through dozens of attempts before you finish the game even once, but this is a game all about the journey not necessarily the destination.

Blossom Tales is indeed a fun throwback to 2D Zelda, and certainly worth playing if you're a fan of that style of adventure game.

Yea it's why it's hard to choose. So many good games out there. Putting Blossum Tales aside for now, but it's definitely staying on my wish list.

 

I'm aware of it. Gave the Zelda crossover demo a second try and like it better than before. Glad they at least had that demo available. 

 

A bit concerned about the lightning in The Flame in the Flood. Is there any way to adjust the weather, similar to Stardew Valley via pc?

Adjusting the weather manually? Not that I'm aware of; coping with the weather is a common part of the survival game experience after all. I suppose it would be possible to just try to sleep through bad weather/lightning, as long as you have a safe place to sleep, but as you progress through the game it starts to rain quite often.

Ah I see. Don't mind it with Stardew since it's not too flashing, effects wise. The Flame in the Flood's storm effects seem a little bit more so. Might be ruling out Necro Dancer due to the strobe effects. Read that they can be shut off. Is that the case with the Switch version?

I haven't played the Switch version but as far as I know it should have the same accessibility options as the other versions.

Thanks.

Attempted to try out Next Up Hero and 20XX.... The controls for keyboard are a bit... annoying - going to have to go back to those two once i have a controller... if the second game even has controller support

 

So it's hard to say right now whether i like either of them or not currently right now

 

But started playing a bit of Torchlight II, though - first boss is being a bit of a pain, though... no idea how to set up Multiplayer, though... so looks like i'm stuck with Single Player, at least unless i buy another version of Torchlight II

 

Also went and attempted to try out Wildstar, but apparently the servers got shut down at some point. huh... oh well then

I have brain rot because all I can think of at work is going home and playing FFXIV.

 

Getting lost in an MMO is about the worst way to deal with depression but hey I’m makin it over here.

So, I've been playing Fitness Boxing on the Nintendo Switch almost daily since May 2019. In that time, I've lost 102.8 pounds. There's still work to be done, of course, but dropping 100 had been one of my goals. Making it past that benchmark really feels like an accomplishment. 

That's amazing, congratz!
