(cont.) I've already bought the Contra Collection and the Collection of Mana, and am really looking forward to the new Contra game, as well as the full remake of Trials of Mana. I am glad Konami hasn't given up on the run and gun game style, and moreso, that Contra is making such a beautiful return. The Mana series is always a solid action RPG, and I'm excited to play all of the games we're getting.

The last game I'm going to mention getting is MUA3: Black Order. I'm really only picking this up to co-op with a friend who loves the Marvel games, but MUA has always been a solid, fun "dungeon crawl" style action RPG. The addition of the new characters (including the Kamela Khan version of Ms. Marvel) warms my heart, and I'm so excited to see the roster. Four player co-op never gets old, in my eyes. I'm sure our adventures through Castle Crashers is a perfect testament to that.

Whew, sorry that was so long winded, and thanks for bearing with me lol.

(cont.) So I need something more concrete. I think that this will be a good way to get the more authentic experience, and again, if it's on the Switch, all the better.

The last bit was one of the few original IPs that caught my interest which is Oninaki, which looks hella charming. I don't know why it captivates me so much, but I'm very interested in seeing more/getting to play.

Nintendo - I was really happy with the announcements this year. Not the best E3 by any stretch, but solid to say the least. Starting with the Smash DLC characters, I am always happy to welcome another sword wielder into the fray. I didn't get into DQ (try as I might), so I don't have much love for the character itself, but the abilities he gets look wild. Kamikaze is going to be incredibly fun to use. Despite being trolled by what looked to be first a DKC announcement, followed by a Banjo announce, I was still pleased with seeing the franchise not totally abandoned. I don't know how they ended up with the rights/license to the character, but it was a pleasant surprise. And my god does he look adorable. Those big, googly eyes are wonderful.

Astral Chains is on my list because I'd buy anything developed by Platinum. They're such a solid studio.

FE:TH is adding a new mechanic I'm really interested in, and as much as I love the franchise I've never been one to buy all the games in the franchise (I missed Echoes and the one that came in two games after Awakening). But I love them enough that I'll get this.

Link's Awakening remake is probably the one I'm most excited about, and it looks so fucking charming. The OG games on the GB/C were whimsical and charming, and the new art direction are perfect to capture that. And Link looks just downright adorable. Have you seen the Amiibo for him? Too cute. The BotW sequel is also a huge surprise, but welcome. I loved the Twilight Princess vibes I got from it, and very curious how they'll approach this next game. I thought BotW was the pinnacle of Zelda, and I honestly didn't know how they could top it, so a sequel makes a ton of sense to me. I think the most underrated of the announcements but one that people should look into was Cadence of Hyrule. If you've never played Crypt of the Necrodancer, you honestly have no idea what you are missing. Skinning that game with Zelda just makes it 10x more appealing to me. (cont.)

I don't know that my game purchasing has changed much, but what I play has. That's why I'm purging a lot of my games now though, and being a bit more selective in my purchases. I know that probably doesn't seem right, given my memory card right now (these collections that are coming out are KILLING me), but this is the only legitimate way I can play a lot of these classics now since VC is mostly dead at this point.

I'm with you on the excitement of Animal Crossing. Aside from the itch of a new AC game (the mobile game was nice for a bit, but not quite what I wanted), I'm looking forward to the slower paced, almost meditative like state that AC puts me in. It's incredibly satisfying. I've been primarily a Smash streamer since it's come out, but I'll be switching that to AC for a few months as I play that with friends.

I did watch part of E3 (still catching up on other pressers, but I didn't miss Nintendo or Square Enix, naturally). My thoughts below:

Square Enix - Lots of stuff I'm looking forward to here. The FFVII remake looks glorious, and despite my gripes about the fanboys of the series, I pre-ordered the 1st Class Edition. Final Fantasy is Final Fantasy to me, so I'll always support the franchise. Aside from that, it looks DAMN good. The combat looks solid, I love the Tactical mode, and the hints of OG VII mixed with newer mechanics and that remixed OST just brought me so much life. My body is ready to finally play through that game, I think.

I am also excited for the remastering of FFVIII, as it's one of my favorites in the series, so I'm looking forward to going through that again. Admittedly, I never beat it, so I think being on the Switch will help me on that front considerably. FFCC is also a game I hold dear to my heart (still have my GCN copy, as well as the two sequels on the DS), but knowing that it's also coming out for mobile platforms (iOS and Android) was a huge surprise, and one that is welcome. I hope people find all kinds of ways to play it. This is another one I can't wait to stream/play with friends. on the topic of mobile, I didn't like FFBE, but War of the Visions being tactical was something I'm VERY interested in trying. There aren't many true tactics games on mobile (save for FFWotL), so I'm always happy to add another.

I got into the SaGa series too late, so getting a chance to play the old SaGa games is a plus. The only one I have ever owned was, according to critics, the worst of the series. (cont.)

Haha, that's all too true. Your job gets more taxing, and the last thing you want to do is "work" on your hobby. Here I thought I couldn't do many turn based games because I'm old and fall asleep between battles. ._. Maybe it's a little of both. One of these days I'll get to my Persona games I'm stockpiling.

I will definitely try that. I've been doing a lot more of language changing when there are English subs available. I'm doing that in MHW right now, actually.

God, this whole paragraph entirely. I really love Twitter, and I don't think I'll ever quit it, but I access all of my communication through my phone, so my "Do Not Disturb" function gets a TON of use. It helps so much. And you're right, the novelty of that surprise message on a forum, or an email, or what have you is lost when you can just pick up your phone and access whomever, whenever.
