I'm at the second major boss and my impressions so far are not particular positive because of the games terrible control layout. All I have is joycons since I don't really play switch games much, but this game was not made for them. For example if you want to shoot a bunch of missiles at a boss you gotta hold L1 to aim, R1 to enable missiles (which is not a toggle), and then mash the one face button. There's no loose lock-on or anything either while aiming. It ends up really hurting my hands. I could consider getting another controller but that's money and what they should have done is just let me configure my own controls. There's not even any sort of options related to that.

So I quoted you above saying it feels pretty good on a Switch Pro controller. I completely forgot about a feature that the Switch has that is for some reason totally hidden. From the Switch's home menu, you can go to System Settings - Controllers and Sensors - Change Button Mapping and set up a handful of different profiles. This unfortunately doesn't change the in-game prompts and such so you have to remember that you changed Y to ZR or something crazy like that, but you can change up buttons.

It's probably too late for this game but may come in handy in the future.

I'm aware of this and it's still BS. Not really an acceptable solution to be frank as it changes it across all games, and wouldn't fix/address the issues I had with the game. The controls do start to feel better once you get the Storm missiles since precision aiming isn't as important than. But the game still need to have a lot of controller/accessibility settings.

The EMMI robots: Suck. They're one hit kill. You can apparently parry them to get away, but it's super tight (more mashing) and they can just kinda appear behind doors or below you while your in their areas when you don't expect it. You get abilities to help avoid them, but if they touch even a little bit, that's it. There's no way to stun or impede other than set doors and stuff.

It feels like reviewers are being too positive on it like they did with SR.

The environmental art is a huge step up though. Each area is actual pretty unique looking unlike in SR where rooms had sort of tile sets based on what sort of room they were. The cutscenes all look really nice too. The music has been pretty good too.

The map feature is fantastic. It labels pretty much everything. You can set markers, but unfortunately, they just give you a variety of colors rather than shapes or icons.

So far, I think if, like me, you hated SR, then maybe pass this game up completely. It's very much a sequel to that game mechanically with some improvement. If you're like "I really love Super Metroid" or "I really loved the GBA games" this game is not them and doesn't really draw from them outside of general stuff.

@justin258: Hrmm... Ok but we're actually hoping that we could play without the new content completely. Dang.

Hello Folks,

I couldn't find this answer anywhere, but how does the new Final Cut data affect already existing save files? My partner and I wanted to finish our 2nd playthrough before the Final Cut came out, but unfortunately didn't get around to it and are hoping our saves are OK.

Thanks,

I got the bunny gal but kept losing with her. Switched back to the hedgehog gal and got all my lost ranking points back in a single game. hahah.

In terms of friendly matching etc, I'm mostly free on the weekends at around 5pm PST, especially saturdays.

Anyone want to try and schedule a playing time? It'd be nice to get out of ranked for a bit and do some friendlies with y'all.

Tomorrow (23rd), I'll be available from about 5:00PM to 7:00PM Pacific, if anyone is interested.

I would, but unfortunately will likely be busy. Should be free over the weekend though.

Has anyone else been watching Yashahime? From it's announcement I decided to finish a rewatch of Inuyasha (including the final bit which I didn't know existed until like last year).

So far, I'm enjoying Yashahime alright. I think it has some pacing issues and it's structure is very different from Inuyasha, but I like the main cast so far and that it's not just "Hey remember how cool Inuyasha was?" which is a common compliant I hear about Boroto. I suspect it's planned for 100+ episodes which I'm not fully on board with, but it's nice to have something to watch each week/catch up on.

Sometimes you just gotta give another player all of your blood.
