    Zelda, Mario and now Xenoblade: Nintendo is killing it!

    Wow....just wow!
    The Switch has really come into its own this first year. Launching with BotW, followed by Mario Odyssey was certainly a great plan.
    But now, Nintendo intends to end the year on another high note:
    Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
    I can't state just how pleased I am with Nintendo's efforts. Each of these games alone will fill weeks of your time if you spend the time exploring.
    Personally, I've always been a fan of single player campaigns, so this lineup appeals to me, but probably not to those who enjoy online play.
    Regardless, I think Nintendo is a perfect compliment to either an X Box or Playstation owner.

    I have a modern gaming PC that I built in the last few months, and I love it, but, if you put a gun to my head to choose between that and the $300 Switch, I’d choose the Switch in a heartbeat.
    As for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, I need to wait and see how reviews pan out, as I’m not really sure where I’m supposed to find the time for another 50+ hour game this year…

    You gotta make time!
    Shun your family, friends and any type of social interactions! Hell, don’t even let work, food, drinking or even using the bathroom get I’m the way!
    (The bathroom thing won’t be an issue though…just take the Switch with you!)
    Seriously though, I’m so freaking geeked! The Switch may have been my best tech purchase this year, followed by my 2XL

    Yup, the Switch is 100% my favorite kind of tech purchase – the kind that slides seamlessly into my life and makes it objectively better.
    I legitimately thought about foregoing other gaming system and focusing on the Switch, just to force myself into a funnel where I have less choice in games to play and can focus on the library of a single console, but then I spent way too much building this stupid PC. Whoops!

    If you’ve played the first game, you’d know that there’s little Monolithsoft can do to make the game objectively bad (outside of giving Hiroyuki Sawano more soundtrack work). They’re good for it. There’s so many moving parts and variables in a Xenoblade game that if even one turns out good, that’s prima facie proof that they know what they’re doing.
    As for the 50+ hour estimate….you might want to revise it upward a bit.

    Between this, Skyrim (never played it before) and next year’s Octopath Traveler and Lost Sphere…I expect my social life to all but disappear.
    I love me some RPGs!
