Onrush. Game of the year, or it will be if they ever fix the bugs.

Into the Breach is bloody great. If you like Advance Wars and FTL then I’d recommend giving it a blast.

Ahh nice, been wanting an Advance Wars substitute for a long time. Bought Tiny Metal which is an AW homage but it's missions and level designs are boring.
Will buy ITB tonight.
Loving robots since the 80's.

I'm still working my way through Octopath Traveler, which is a really excellent game.

I've been playing OT as well.
Very pleaseant experience. The split controller with the joycons makes it even better for some lazy gaming.

Rockman 2 is a very good game, heavy on the memorising though.

Just finished Captain Toad on Switch assisted by my kids. It starts very strong being fresh and full of imagination, but it fades rapidly and becomes annoying and repetitive towards the end. Overall, it was not a game to remember.

Back to Bayonetta 2. Think I'm getting near the end.
Finished Bayonetta 2 end of September. Bayonetta 1 is a better game than Bayonetta 2.

While 2 removes 99% of the really irritating parts of 1, and is far prettier - the basic combat is nowhere near as good. 1 has a rhythm and definite structure to combat that's removed entirely in 2 by the addition of Umbran Climax. 2 is spam combo > UC > spam combo, and adds in entirely un-cued enemy attacks. As a button mashing action game it's fine, but it's greatly dumbed down compared to 1. Think Ninja Gaiden (technical) vs God of War (mashing).

Been playing Owlboy over the past few weeks and completed it last night. It's a bit style over substance. The graphics are some of the best pixel art ever, as is the soundtrack. The game underneath is paced weirdly (there are a lot of times where you'll literally be doing nothing except pushing the stick one direction for a while), I can't abide the way it switches between scrolling + fixed screens (you end up smacking into stuff that if it scrolled normally you'd see a mile off), and having to keep tapping ZR for every shot you let off grows tedious. Worth it for the money it's going for though - I paid about £15 for a new physical copy.

Tempted to pick up Shantae next...

That bad? I need to finish Mario + Rabbids too but that requires actual brainpower which is in short supply at the moment.

Gradually enjoying Rayman Legends. It's fantastic, but structurally it's a mess - I'd prefer it to be a little more linear and not so dauntingly sprawling.

It's not tenacity, it's convenience. My Switch is in a (locked) cabinet, and the games are in another (locked) cabinet. Because I'm only buying cartridges, it's a lot of faff swapping games - turn light on, find keys, decide game, fiddle about swapping cart, close cabinet, settle down. In the couple of hours a week I find to play games, I just pick up the controller and carry on with whatever is in the console.

I don't worry about 100% anything unless the game makes it relatively obvious about locations. Axiom Verge/Mario Odyssey = 100%, BOTW/Owlboy = not doing koroks or coins, pointless busywork.
