Not singling anyone out but I've always been convinced that a big part of the insistence by many that Switch would be replaced in 2021/2022 was wishful thinking because they didn't want it staying around long enough to have a chance of outselling systems from their preferred brand.
It's not just about sales, but also the neverending discussion which gen Switch belongs to. Everyone who is convinced that it's gen 8 is pressing for an early launch of the successor, because otherwise there would be no way around that they were on the wrong side of an argument for several years.
Got Pikmin 3 and Xenoblade Re-master/make. I also have Xenoblade 2 that I've played only for about 15 minutes and will play once I finish Xeno Re. Probably will buy Sakuna of rice and ruin, Hades and Immortal Fenyx early next month, hope they keep me entertained for the upcoming months
Does anyone here recommend Tales of Vesperia?
My expectations weren't fulfilled with Tales of Vesperia despite them being grounded. For the most part, it's a disjointed mess where the story forces characters in and out of your party far too often, including a stretch where you will be without good healing. Sidequests are way too obtuse to start and the side activities in general take far too much time for often meager rewards. As a result, the game feels like a drag far too often. It's one of titles where you'll be glad to be through and at peace with yourself to move on to another game. That is, if you manage to stay motivated enough to pull through.
If you've never played a Tales game before, you will be more forgiving when it comes to Vesperia's flaws. But if you've played a few Tales games that predate Vesperia, it's just another one where obvious shortcomings have not only still not been fixed, but the few strengths also been mitigated by a hamfisted story.
