I am confused as all hell right now because of some of the mechanics (never played a gacha game), the story is weak, and the characters are like memes of anime tropes, but the world seems cool and I'm having fun so far regardless at about 2h in.
I tried out Genshin for a while yesterday as I wanted to be watching some TV and didn't enjoy Mario Galaxy in handheld as much.
Pretty solid for a free game once you get a hang of things. I got up to like AR12 I think, and leveling along the way I was able to do I believe 4 "pulls" in total. I don't know if that's normal or if it's because they're giving away currency like candy right now for launch, but I didn't feel under powered or gated at all. Which was surprising.
The combat feels pretty good once you start to get a feel for it, though I do feel like the lag - both intentional, but also unintentional - when switching between characters feels bad. I also continued to struggle getting into any of the characters or story. I'm cool with some anime, but this was too over the top for me. Especially the voice acting.
I definitely can see myself going back to it some, but as for now, all it really made me want to do was go play actual Breath of the Wild, which I never played more than ~30-40h of back when it came out. Something else ended up coming out, I moved on, and never went back. So I think that's what I'll do today. I remember BOTW working really well in handheld, so I'll give that a whirl while watching football today.
I really with BG3 had come out on Friday
