Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch owners; thoughts on Starlink Battle of Atlas?

I’ll admit my interest at first was primarily for them using Fox and the Arwing, but after watching some gameplay, it actually looks really cool to me beyond that. I’ll be getting it at launch, hoping for the best. 

it certainly helps that I have GCU at best buy to get the price down, of course. The $75 would’ve been hard to swallow.

Still using toys, so I still don't care.                             

Though, you can play the game without buying the toys, so your point is ?

I'm not making a point, I'm sharing my thoughts on the game. You're actually wrong though, the game comes packaged with some toys for $75, then there's exclusive content in the additional toys that you'll have to buy if you want the full experience.

The game itself actually looks surprisingly good. Impressive even. I like the visuals and the gameplay looks fun. Honestly, as someone who has actually played No Man's Sky, you can clearly see the difference here with them focusing on crafting a small number of planets vs trying to procedurally generate a preposterous number.

The toys to life thing is a barier. The fact you can scan in the toys once and then never use the physical toys again is a cool concession for convenience. The fact the starter kit comes with all you need to play the whole game's core content has me interested, but I don't know if I am $75 interested. It is a shame this has come out now though with toys to life on the wane cause imo, this is what the toys to life genre should have always been like. I know if I was a kid I would be very, very hyped for this vs Skylanders and other such stuff.



i’ll get it when it’s cheap. so maybe 3 years down the line.

There's been confirmation that you could buy the game without the toys though ... and by that I guess they meant the digital (inferior) version of course.

Source? Even with that being true, I'm still not interested in paying full price for a game where core content was intentionally stripped out.

Could care less for a game that has toys. It looked interesting, and i'm a little confused as to what console they were using for game play because the graphics look shit, and it wouldn't make sense to use Nintendo Switch game play if it is also on the Xbox one X.
The voice acting in the trailer was cringy and very low quality. I also feel like this game is going to be broken at launch. Unless Nintendo fans have low standards for games, this one doesn't look so good.



I don't know about Starlink.



Preordered it already. Gameplay looks pretty solid and the fact all the toys to life aspect is completely optional (can get everything digitally) is pretty awesome.

It looks realy good. Oddly enough, the only reason I'm not interested is because it's a Toys to Life game. Those are money drainers.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
