"Octopath Traveler (Nintendo Switch)"


  

          

I just copped but I'm in the middle of packing so I'm probably not gonna get far into it until well into August.

Just think Mid-90s turn based classic Square JRPG with SNES level sprites and simulated 3-D environments. Fans of Star Ocean for the PSX will like it.

Seems like a joyless game, at least story wise. I admit I'm a bit biased though, I played FF 4 Heroes of Light (NDS) and didn't really enjoy that, and Octopath is made by the same producer as that game and Bravely Default.

The individual stories are okay but so far, I see no reason why these eight characters are together. The combat has gotten pretty complex now that I'm outfitting my characters with dual jobs. I'm still chipping away at it with certain combinations and finding out what skills work with what enemy situation.

Of course I haven't picked it up in like a week and a half because Enter the Breach dropped for Switch but still.
