Color me surprised. I'm hoping to see more third-party AAA games come out on Switch. Call me crazy, but a CoD or something like that on Switch would be awesome IMO.
Like you though, I'll be getting these bigger games on PC. Btw, did you ever upgrade your PC? I'm gearing up to buy a new mobo+ryzen + video card here.
I did not yet. It's not super high on my list, but is on my mind and ready to pull the trigger when it makes sense. You suggested waiting for the Sapphire 5700 XT to come out, which might be the best bang for the buck for GPU. Haven't checked-in on it recently.
I'm glad you mentioned that card as further research shows they are having a good deal of issues on launch across the board. Not just Sapphire. As I said I'm looking to upgrade from my 1070 so I'll keep doing some research and let you know what I find. Definitely wait on that.
You're a good person to ask my next question. I have never played a Persona/Fire Emblem or many JRPGs in generally (except for Skies of Arcadia which I ****ing loved), would I be able to pick either Persona 5 or Fire Emblem up and get into it? I love RPGs in general, but I was watching FE reviews and it looked super technical/detail driven.
Cool, would definitely be interested in your feedback given your help on my original build
I came across the negative feedback too when I searched on the card right after my post - it also made me stumble upon the RTX 2060 Super, which could be a good fit, but it also just came out and there isn't a lot of feedback yet.
Persona 5 and FE: Three Houses are both good entries in the sense that the franchises are completely stand alone - you don't need to have any prior knowledge to jump in. Persona 5 is a true JRPG, but has mechanics (social life/relationship building) which are not standard in RPGs of any kind. It's kind of a thing because
Now, mind you that P5 was also my entry point into the series, so I've picked up on all of this as a result of P5. I think it's either something you like or don't. If it doesn't appeal to you, I'd avoid as it's a heavy amount of the game. If it does appeal to you, jump in, because it's literally one of the greatest RPGs of all time IMO. Some Lets Plays on YT might help you get a feel for the mechanics. It's in-depth to the point it would be hard to explain in text, but at the same time comes naturally when playing.
FE: Three Houses is not my first FE, and it's also not the first with some relationship building as part of the game. Outside of battle, it's a main tenet of the game. But for the first time (to my knowledge) it's done in a school setting, and some of the enhancements they've made make it feel similar to Persona. I see it as a cross between Persona and the Harry Potter universe. But the story isn't childish (neither is Persona's), regardless of the mechanics. I don't think there's anything so in-depth about FE that it would be hard to grasp. It's a tactics-based RPG, and it can be forgiving if you want it to be - you can play with permadeath off, and you can also rewind time in battles even with permadeath on.
I recommend both, though do recommend P5 more because of how highly I place it in my gaming pantheon. It's just...so good.
