A bunch of old-ass PC RPGs are getting new-ass console ports, including Switch versions.

A bunch of Baldur's Gates, Neverwinter Nights, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale... good gets, for wherever they land.

That's awesome! I was just asking about these a couple of months ago. There's a very good chance I'll play some of these.

Fffffffuck. Guess I gotta try it then. (Assuming I have the install space 🤔 ) Can't guarantee I'll stick around after 30 days but it'll be some good temporary fun.

Today's Nintendo Direct, I'll embed the Fire Emblem part in the other thread, yadda yadda.



- MARIO MAKER SWITCH. RETURN OF THE RYCKERTALYPSE. P O L I C E S T A T E

- Ultimate Alliance 3, Marvel things, yep, seems to have all the Marvel things, up to and including Captain Marvel

- Dragon Quest Builders 2 and a Switch-exclusive definitive edition of DQ11 with a 16-bit mode, kinda cool I guess if you can stand to look at Dragon Quest stuff for more than couple seconds without falling asleep

- A new version of Rune Factory 4? And also Rune Factory... 5? Did anyone play these? They look a little Harvest Moon/Animal Crossing/Stardew with the anime slider dragged all the way to the right

- the I Am Setsuna people are doing another thing, hopefully better than their last couple things :sigh

- Daemon X Machina still looks neat.

- Platinum has a new IP called Astral Chain that looks kinda like a cellshaded cyberpunk character-action thing with some light mecha stuff. A more anime Metal Gear Rising, maybe.

- A total remake of Link's Awakening, the ancient Zelda thing on the OG Gameboy. It now has kind of a claymation look.

- MISC THINGS: Box people, Smash version updates (with no details, heh), Toads who are captains, Blood stains, Disney zoom-zoom (tsum tsum, whatever), Starlink with more pigs and foxes, craft artisanal bespoke Yoshis, a non-Effected Tetris, ...Dead By Daylight? Some incomplete free version of Deltarune as early as February 28, ...GRID Autosport? I wonder how the framerate feels... Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, nice get... Mortal Kombat 11, Unraveled Two, Assassin's Creed 3/Liberation, Final Fantasy things, and a Bayonetta 3 namedrop but nothing else.
