Anyone have a summary of what they showed off at all? What new modes did they announce?

I'll try the testpunch and see what I think of ARMS then. I dunno it just doesn't grab my interest too much.

If the Splatoon 2 single player is sizeable enough then that might be my jumping on point.

For some reason I never got into the Wii U Splatoon sessions with you guys and I don't know why. I'd like to freshen up for the Switch one! I'd be up for ARMS, too, even though I am absolutely terrible at fighting games :lol: . And... Matt may be fully Switched up in July?!?

"I'm excited!" about all of these things :toot: .

I was really excited about Arms from the first reveal and I'm super pleased that it's shaping up so well.

Apparently there's a Disgaea 5 demo up on the US eShop.

Good luck and persevere as they don't usually build disgaea games for people new to the series.

Heads up Switch Squad! Got deal for you to get a Switch game cheaply cheap

£20 off a £40 spend with Very.co.uk (need to use a credit account) use code 6tftk at the checkout

I just used it to get Super Bomberman R for £21.99 but you can use it on pre-orders as well

This video suggests that you can get stuck in even if you don't delve deeply into every mechanic of the game.



I'm so excited for this that I've even pre-ordered the special edition. It'll be my first Disgaea game since the DS version of the origins. I never finished it and meant to restart it on the PC when the Steam version came out but I didn't get around to even buying that. The flexibility of the Switch should mean that I can get through a lot more of this than I would just on a PC or home console.

Excite :toot:

Essentially it's a tactics game (like Final Fantasy Tactics) but it's entirely about min/max mechanics and grinding. There is a main story and you'll likely complete that within 15-20 hours if you rush but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Like in any other tactics game there are a series of story levels (which you can rinse and repeat if you want) but every single item also contains levels called the item world (the number of levels is dependant on the item's rarity) these range from 30 up to 250. And every time you complete a level (they're very short) then the item also levels up. You can then equip that item on your character and go into another item world ad infinitum. And while you're doing this your character is also levelling up. Oh and each level has coloured flooring that adds different modifiers (some inc. exp, so make spells not work etc). And you can throw coloured blocks at them to make them change colour (after breaking the block). And then that chains into massive combos so you can clear a level without even attacking someone. And then pirates turn up who'll mostly kick your arse.

I absolutely adore Disgaea games. It's one of the reasons I'll be picking up a Switch along with Stardew Valley. If they made Disgaea 5 for Vita then I'd be all over that.
