Small update, I'm about 5h in, still having fun but the part I'm in is a bit of a grind. Once they unleash you from the tutorial section, it funnels your progress through sidequests which are structured around typical MMO-style quests, most of which are pretty boring. There's still the main story of course, but the sidequests take up an inordinate amount of your time. Looking forward to more, but whew, there are a LOT of throwaway quests in the early part of the game.Griffith said:I'm trying the demo on your recommendation and it's indeed very much like Seiken Densetsu, and aesthetically and sonically reminds me of Chrono Trigger as well. Not bad company!
It's also worth noting that I played the game through this weekend with my cat in the same room. The cat who had to get radiation treatment this week and be isolated in a room (my office) so the rest of us don't get irradiated. So yeah, future back-of-box quote: "I braved an irradiated wasteland just to squeeze in a few more hours of CrossCode. And so far, I only feel slightly mutated." -SKnet's Walter
Get that. I really appreciated the bigger screen of the XL. And having some more power would be nice (though not a game changer). That being said, I get far more use out of my Switch than my 3dS (which is pretty much my son's console at this point). So that's up to you. Nintendo is clearly leaning away from the 3DS, now that it's about 8 years old.Well, I've explored a few options, one is a New SNES 3DS XL from amazon for $150 + Mario Kart, which is a hell of a deal
The Switch Online thing is worthless to me. I don't play online games on that thing, and while I like their service model pricing ($20/year for all those games is a better price than $6-8 per title) I already have an NES Classic AND an SNES Classic (sitting side by side in a cabinet ) to deflect inevitable future offers. The only thing it has going for it is the portability of those games, which is nice, but not enticing enough to me, given the above considerations. I mostly play docked anyway.BTW folks, how much would you pay a month for access to Nintendo's classic game library (whatever that is to you, from NES-Wii)? As in, what would you need included and then what price would be too high? Nintendo must really be weighing that cash cow versus selling the same shit ala carte every time since it's hard to pretend at this point these guys are so quaint and out of touch they can't figure out the equivalent of email accounts when they've otherwise been innovators in the marketplace for decades, "How can you be so obtuse; is it intentional?"
