Like with almost all of my topics, it's aimed at people that own more than the switch itself, and don't care about console wars.

Indie:

The Big Con: Pure Adventure game in the 90's where you pickpocket and con people out of money to save your mom's VHS store from the mafia.

Bigger games:

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous: It's a very deep, long, epic Baldur's Gate-like WRPG. Watched someone play this a couple nights ago, god it seems cool! It's been reported as buggy however, so maybe do what I always recommend doing, and wishlist it, and way for a sale.

Smaller games:

Dwerve: Prologue: Demo for a Dungeon Crawler Tower Defense RPG that reviews are calling zelda-like! Sweet! 96% rating on steam too!

Rustler: AKA Grand Theft Horse, AKA medievil bully. I made a topic about this before. Beat it a few days ago, and yeah, it's pretty good.

It's on the Switch as well!

The Magister: Malaysia developed Detective Card Battler. Looks beautiful too! Reviewers are comparing to Grim Fandango, and the OG Monkey island. 4 reviews for it that are over 10 hours, and they all recommend it.

Indie:

OPUS: Echo of Starsong: Beautiful looking and sounding, super atmospheric Sci-fi pure adventure. Overwhelming Positive Rating on steam, and it's on sale for the next 20 hours for around $15. And apparantly it's the third game in the series.

Kitaria Fables: First of all, this on the Switch as well, yay!

Anyways, I made a topic about this i'm 18 hours in, and god it's fun! Super impressed! It's a zelda-like action adventure game with light farming elements.

Unless you're loaded, save your money, and wait for sales. This isn't the 90's anymore, and most games don't become hard to find. And don't pre-order.

Kitaria Fables

I was told this was basically Rune Factory Lite and the lack of fast travel was very annoying. Do you agree with that?
Fire Emblem Echoes is an underrated 3DS game.

I'm honestly kind of glad there's nothing much coming out between now and Metroid Dread that I'm super interested in. Will let me focus on Monster Train, Saint's Row 3, Fallout 4 and Slime Rancher when I get it soon. Oh and me failing badly at Spelunky 2 runs but I don't wanna talk about that. Lol.
To the mattresses.

Haven't played Rune Factory, but there is indeed fast travel, so you were told a blatant lie there. Plus each area is pretty damn small, and you get to wherever you wanna go pretty quickly.

"Medieval Bully" - lol

I have had it on my Wishlist for a while now; glad it finally clears Early Access status on Steam.

Dwerve looks really good (got that vibrant, GBA sort of color palette - reminding one of Minish Cap). I wishlisted Kitaria justthe other day.

Not sure if you've been yet, but the Indie board awaits more participants. Our community has grown there several-fold in the last few months, and we could always use more. Save it to your Favorites List.

Game on...
