Semi off-topic: I'm having problems deciding what game I should DL this month. I van only choose one (OK. Two if one of them is a cheap one). Spla2n, Fate, TEtrisvsPuyo or Disgea 5? They all have sth I really want o.O

I guess it goes to which quirky surface aspect piques your interest the most... at least to me:

-) Want mostly-multiplayer online action? Splatoon 2 is for you;
-) Wanna pay your tribute to ROMA? Fate/Extella it is;
-) Want to have the first officially-coming-outside-of-Japan Puyo Puyo-related game in over 10 friggin' years? Hop over the Puyo Tetris train;
-) Have an irk to grind so long to be called the next Tony Hawk? Have fun with Disagea.

Those are the personal bullet points I have in mind for when it comes to hearing the games alone, but here are my 2 cents anyway. Hope it helps!

Thanks a lot Smile

Still a hard to choose... MAybe I'll have to enjoy a sixpack on this one... And might not be too happy about my decision tomorow ;)

*grumble, grumble at first world problems*

EDIT: PuyoTetris has online, right? Disgea 5 is pretty big/long a game?

Never played a FATE game, is Extella a good start or should I go play the others first?

Is Spla2n as addictive es the first one?

My choices in order are:

1) Spla2n
2) Disgaea 5
3) Puyo/Tetris
4) Fate (never played).

I'll be straight up with you though... the sleeper in that group is Disgaea 5 Complete! It has delivered soooo much more than I was expecting, and is pretty damn satisfying--especially with the sleep mode + portability of the Switch.

Even if you don't get it this go-around, definitely don't sleep on this one! I was almost put off by how people said the menus/customization/etc was like an endless rabbit-hole, but it's as deep as you want it to be! You can ignore what you don't want, and focus on what you do want. Combat is great. Although very "JRPG-y", the localization team is fantastic, and there were moments that actually had me laughing pretty good (instead of cringing like JRPG's normally do for me).

BUY IT!!! Smile

I have been playing the demo these days, and DAMN, Disgea is a fun game so far. Really cought my attention. I mean REALLY! I am sure to get all of these games, but that one is climbing big time.

Splatoon will definitely have legs and assure that you will be returning to it for a long time. I'd definitely get that!

It might have legs, but I have ARMS (sorry! Really). And that is the main reason I am holding out on Spla2n at the moment. I will get it eventually, of course. Was hooked on the first one.
