Please don't engage with Jezo either

I see this as a challenge to convert you ;) Did you try Mario Rabbids?

I did. Initially I found it quite fun, but around the start of the second world I realised that actually I wasn’t so keen. I could feel it getting quite hard, and requiring a sort of thought I’m not very good at. So I just... didn’t go back to it really. Which is a shame, because I liked a lot of stuff it did, but, well...

...it’s a strategy game. :P

It can be difficult yeah, I was thinking that the colourful Nintendo theming and high level of polish would help swing your opinion, but that's fair.

You play a lot of JRPGs right? Maybe there are some tactical RPGs out there for you.

Funnily enough two of the strategy games I got on best with were the Luminous Arc games on DS. They weren’t great but they were decent enough and, crucially, not too hard. Sadly the 3DS spiritual sequel whose name I can’t remember (EDIT: Stella Glow) took the fanservice up to eleven: I didn’t get far past the super-doormat bikini with a bag over her head.

Also why shouldn’t we engage with Jezo?

This is why I won't play Xenoblade Chronicles 2

I have the early access version of dead cells but will definitely get on switch too. I'm not too keen on rogue likes but it plays very well.

I completely understand where you're coming from, O_R. The main female character, Pyra, is awful. However, in the game's defence, it does have two other very good female main characters (Nia and Morag - Nia is one of my favourite female characters in gaming ever). And of course it's a damn great JRPG. However if the boobs put you off I can't blame you for that.

Incidentally, this is the Stella Glow character I referred to. Prooooobably NSFW.

I agree on Pyra and even more so Mythra. Nya is a good character but her blade costume is down right ridiculous. Which is a pity as she's super useful.

I just went ahead and looked up her costume, I'm not finishing that game any time soon.

What the strawberry float is that dress.

Re: Nia: :lol: Wow, didn't get far enough in the game to see that. If she were wearing a skirt - or, like, anything there at all - it wouldn't be so bad...

I actually can't bring myself to get too upset over Xenoblade though, it's all so over-the-top it just makes me think "lol Japan" and that's that. (I realise that's not a very feminist POV though!)

I think for me it's the facts that:
-the last two games weren't so OTT (perhaps solely due to art style - Sharla wasn't exactly sensibly dressed);
-the last two games allowed you to change the more ridiculous outfits if you didn't like them;
-the worst culprit is the main female character, and it is completely contrary to her personality;
-Nia (early game), Mòrag, and Blades like Adenine show that they can do 'sensibly' dressed female characters. It's not like Senran Kagura where they're all stupid: if they were, I probably wouldn't have picked it up!

Those are all totally fair points. I think my stance says more about my intense desensitisation (thanks anime!) than the game itself.

Anime was a mistake.

So I picked up this grip for the Switch from Amazon

[url]https://www.amazon.co.uk/ORZLY®-Comfort-Grip-Nintendo-Switch/dp/B077V9B7C6/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1531428894&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=Nintendo+Switch+grip&psc=1[/url]

My god does it make the Switch feel more comfortable in handheld mode. Had a quick go of Flinthook with it and it and my hands felt less cramped, i’ll see how it works over a longer play session over the weekend.
