None. I just started Smash on the Switch. On the PS4 I’m trying to 100% God of War. On the Xbox I’m playing Mutant Year Zero, Ashen and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
What is your favorite thing about the Switch RPG community?
The chat in the Discord channel is very friendly. I like how I can be critical of the Switch (to be fair I’ve been critical of the PS4 & X1 in the past too) and that is okay.
What game or series would you love to see come to the Switch?
Persona, Dragon Quest I – IX, Lunar, Suikoden, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Etrian Odyssey
What Switch titles are you currently anticipating the most?
Shin Megami Tensei V, Bayonetta 3, Yoshi, Luigi’s Mansion 3
What is your favorite thing about the Nintendo Switch?
Being able to play most new games on a portable device.
What is your fondest Nintendo memory?
My brother and I saving up our money to buy the SNES. That was the first system I purchased. Close to that would be playing Pac-Man Vs. on the GameCube where one person plays Pac-Man on the GameBoy SP and the other players are playing the ghosts trying to catch Pac-Man. I like how Nintendo innovates the video game industry with unique gaming experiences on their systems.
Anything you would like to add?
Even though the site is called SwitchRPG, the community is open to talking about all gaming platforms and other genres too. The chat is the SwitchRPG discord is very friendly.
