Great game to spend some quarantine time
I'm working from home, but I guess it also helps. A bit more time to play some games

For someone who doesn't like the lockdown feel of the switch, what my option for a hand held portable PC, to play Octopath on? I know there's a prequel on Android and IOS.

Played part of the demo and game seems good. How long is the game overall? I'm always looking for easier games to play handheld.

Its a traditional not a strategy to start with. It compares closer to a fnal fantasy style entry for gameplay and difficulty.

Three houses is seriously brutal and I'm a long time Disgaea player. I had to go back to casual to learn how to make sure you don't lose guys because losing people for good is so frustrating.
i'm playing 3H, not on maddening or anything, but classic hard and honestly i found it sort of easy, but i've been playing for the story so i didn't mind. what do you find difficult?

thinking of doing maddening classic for my third run.

Buying a digital copy is a horrible idea, you can't even resell them later when you get tired of the game....

Similar to going to movies instead of buying the DVD?

But regardless, let's run through the math.

Current costs:

$30 digital (sale) /$0 resale /$30 net loss
$60 physical (no sale) / $30-45 resale (or less depending on when you resale) / $15-30 net loss (or more) + $time (post, ship, meet, etc, gas,). Time is certainly not worth $0 if thinking rationally.

So would u rather take a perceived $30 loss and enjoy a game, or would you like to pay more for a (maybe) smaller loss?

Your argument might make sense on a brand new game, and certainly if the physical is on sale, but it still has to pass a person's willingness to waste time on reselling for a limited gain. How much is your time worth?

There's also the ease of use of digital vs physical. Swapping cartridges is less convenient than digital, and especially if your switch stays docked. On the other hand, I like to let friends borrow my physical cartridges.


So in reality, thinking rational just means buy what's best overall for you based on what you find more important, not what's best for someone else.

Check out howlongtobeat.com for any game. I will use this site to decide which game to play (if I'm in the mood for a 5 hour game or a 20 hour game, etc.). Or in this case, it's reported as 60 hours!

Thinking about selling your game on eBay? I would love to buy it from you

I recently finished this game and I definitely recommend it, and I usually don't get into RPGs much. There are a lot of great things about the game, but I need to call out the soundtrack. Amazing music! It rivals the top soundtracks of blockbuster movies in my opinion. I love to let this playlist go and it takes me back to all the places I explored in this game.
