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.
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.
Damn I'm gonna have to hold off on this until I get a pro controller. The drift on my joycons are getting pretty bad. Planning on getting the new 8bitdo Pro but that's not released till end of next month.
