Just started playing Underrail, you can tell it takes inspiration from Fallout 1&2. This game tends to concentrate more on combat and exploring than story though. Classic style isometric graphics and turn based combat!
I am about 7 hours in and loving it.

There's quite a lot of story in Underrail and the writing is fairly good (I read that the game was developed by 3 people, got to respect what they achieved). Just... most of the time you're sorting junk in your inventory or shooting at Master Splinter's cousins which creates the illusion that the story has taken a back seat.

It would be nice if people posted some screens of the game they're playing, with the zillion of games out there.

I finally started to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It's hard to split time between this and Total War Warhammer II (Lizardmen!), but I think it's worth it.

Only a few hours in but I can already tell I will like this very much. Likable protagonist (a traditional expressive teenager type, but he appears pretty composed), and the story is already looking pretty interesting (I don't know why people said first few hours are slow paced, there's enough of action already). The game takes itself quite seriously, there's not a lot of your traditional japanese shenenigans (for now at least), and the tone is leaning more toward drama I think. Wanted to play with original japanese voiceover, but I found the english dubbing spot on.

Graphics are really nice. Switch is not a powerhouse, but for what it's worth it's one of the prettier JRPG's I've seen in a while. A lot of detail and style. I need a bigger sample of music but it seems also top-notch. I like the battle system, my first contact with a Xeno game, but I don't remember an action RPG game in which your characters auto-attack (you only move around and trigger timed combos) which is actually quite convinient.

I didn't mention this but I got the Collectors edition (it was a present). I thought it was a bit overpriced for a game + artbook and soundtrack, but when I've seen the 220 page book itself I stopped wondering from where the pricetag came from... one of the better ones I've seen (in terms of content), and I have Skyrim CE artbook

The Fractured But Whole.

A step up from the previous in the terms of combat for sure. The rest is the same, more or less, an interactive South Park episode. Or in this case a feature film. Sunk about 12 hours or so into it as of now.

Worth to try it out if you haven't already.


Quick update: it seems the game suffers from the Ubi curse, as one main quest battle is glitched out, and there's no patch for it yet afaik.


While the dinguses work on that, I'll move to something more classic, like the first KotOR.
