It's always frustrating how I find Platinum games too hard on normal and too easy on well, easy...

I need a meh option for their games :lol:

This really caught my eye during the first announcement even though I've never quite got on with Platinum games.

Hoping this will be the one that clicks for me!

Same, actually. I found Bayonetta too one-note given its combat-only focus (I know that’s the intention, it just didn’t work for me), and I found TW101’s cut-scenes and characters awful and its missions too long. Fingers crossed for this one! It reminded me of Xenoblade on first sight, which is a good sign.

Every console has one slow year in its first two. The Switch is now in year 3. Deep breath...

They are actually adding in a lot of options that you can tweak so you can have things like auto dodging. Think Jawa posted the details on the previous page.

I decided I have enough to play at the moment and will put this on hold until I can give it more time......unless it comes out and everyone is raving about it

Platinum's flair is what has made their games look appealing to my eyes but I'm not one for a fuck-ton of combat/crazy combo shenanigans. So far Astral Chain seems to maintain that flare, just with a more varied gameplay palette.

I'm interested but I also doubt there'll be a good month or more to put aside for it right now - unless of course people are raving about it, in which case I might just bite the bullet early.
