I'm still waiting for my amazon shipment. But I gotta say, with the inclusion of Fox, this has become one of my most anticipated titles of the year.

Earlier this day I played this game for 3-4 hours straight and did nothing but sidequests. I only stopped because the Switch battery went empty.

Prediction: Nobody on VGC bought this game on non-Switch consoles.

For a new IP that price point is keeping me away from buying this, especially when you look at the other toys to life brands all of which died off over the last 2 years, the prices of those figures went from being 50e to 5e to 50c in a matter of months, I couldn't justify spending 100e on the deluxe edition knowing that the price could drop 2 decimal points if the brand doesn't take off and in all honesty, after Ubisoft milks this for all they can over the holiday season I predict the game and its accessories quickly find themselves heading towards the bargain bin where I will pick it up.

It does look nice, but you always have to consider how much real estate a game like this will take up inside a game store, shops just aren't going to dedicate an entire aisle to this type of game again, not the way they did for Skylanders and Disney infinity especially not for a new IP with no brand behind it (even the Lego game had a chance because it was Lego based)

I could be wrong with this, but the track record of the genre and the Ubisoft doesn't seem to suggest to me a title which will hold that insanely high price tag for very long.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

Just finished a 6 hours session.

Boy, leveling in this game is certainly not easy ... Finally going to Thundaria to build my 2nd Starlink Tower.

Yeah, that Fox-inclusion is very enticing. It is interesting, Ubisoft and Nintendo turned exclusive side-content into a purchase-decision. The game isn't exclusive, but I can easily see the Switch-version outsell the others combined.

Yeah, maybe. As I said, I got the physical starter for FOx and Arwing, but playing with the stuff was nothing I prefer. But you can buy a digital version. Anyways, your conclusion about falling prices might come true.

I want to pick this up but don't care for the figures. Is there a non-toy version?

Only digital, as far as I know (I don't know much, though).

The digital version doesn't require the figurines. Plus the digital version comes with a lot more content for less money than the physical version.

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

I saw footage of this game and really wanted it. I've been at work for about 45 minutes and I relieved a guy who worked night shift. He asked me what new games I've been playing. I told him I had Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, and I just pre-ordered Red Dead 2. He said, "Man, I've been playing that Star Link".
My reply was "What the heck is Star Link!?"

I forgot the game was coming out and I even forgot what the name of it was! I've even seen this thread and didn't think twice about it. I guess I have to get it soon--after checking out a review or two.
