I can count the number of times I've played my Switch docked on one hand.

for me it's not so much about being handheld as it is simply easy portability

as someone that moves around between multiple households it's very simple to take my switch wherever I go

... plus yeah continuing on handheld for transit

I like Switch in both handheld and docked

And I wouldn't say every multiplat has something wrong, I've got Dark Souls on Switch and it's been good times even in handheld

This is always super interesting for me to read, since I'm the exact opposite! I've maybe actually used the Switch as a handheld like twice.

Yeah the only time my Switch is docked is when I'm playing Mario Kart or Smash with my partner and kids.

Even if a kid is alone in the living room and there's no one else using the TV, they'll just take it out of the dock and curl up on the couch.

Sleep mode has worked fine for me on PS4 and Xbox One.

I've never taken the Switch out of the dock.

sitting down on a couch in front of a tv for gaming has kind of lost its appeal to me tbh

It's worth pointing out that Tales games usually drop in price pretty quickly. If you're not after a special edition then you could probably wait a bit for a price drop with the added benefit of post-release patches.

This is what I came in to say. Most tales games have some deep sales pretty regularly. I plan on picking it up eventually myself but I'm confident it'll prob drop $20 within the next few months tbh.

Yeah everything is out and free....everything. All the level up, item pack, and Gald DLC is also free, and it's all on two package downloads. This is an extremely odd decision on their part, but I guess they want this to be a celebration?

This is basically why I want to get the game, because there's some dope ass DLC. If it's free I'm all in.

Just because I feel this is the best topic for it

I've seen plenty of people rave about Tales of Berseria. If I'm buying a game in the series, is that the one to buy? Previously I've only played Graces (which I enjoyed the gameplay and some characters but the story was garbage) and Destiny which was in the 90s and I barely remember

Now that this is out, Vesperia is also a great option. You can think of Berseria as the best of the Graces style games while Vesperia is the best of the Symphonia style games. Up to you which you want to check out!

(Tales mixes up its gameplay quite often so there are lots of great games that don't fall into those two categories, but I'd argue they're not quite as approachable for newcomers.)

I would say, even ignoring price, that Berseria is better than Vesperia in every way, but that's entirely promotion of Berseria and not downplaying of Vesperia. Vesperia is also a great game.

Berseria is like $18 almost all the time nowadays though, so it's hard for me not to lean that way.

Vesperia has Troy Baker slumming it as the best Tales lead before he became too big to do anime games and he totally kills it in the role.


Troy isn't in any of the new scenes!

While Yuri is an INCREDIBLE lead, there is absolutely no contest in regards to the rest of the party. Vesperia's party is mostly fine, Berseria has arguably the best group dynamic for a party in the GENRE, forget the series. It is not a comparison. Overall story I would say is better as well, it doesn't fall apart like Vesperia's nonsense final act. Velvet is also as good as Yuri at the very least.

Yeah I had no idea, haven't paid attention to this at all and I went to look into it and sure enough they got Grant George instead.

He's fine but I'm significantly less hyped now.

Maaaan went to gamestop to buy Berseria and it's one of those no art boxes. May as well get the way cheaper digital copy of it's one of those bunk boxes

Edit: Nevermind. They have another box. Time to buy it I guess. I'd have it amazoned new but with cost of delivery to get it delivered tomorrow it would be same price anyway
