Anyone planning to play something else alongside Odyssey?

  • I was switching between Sonic Mania, and BotW. I'm sure I will be switching CODWWII and Odyssey. If I have any money left from my check this thursday.

  • Unfortunately, I gotta unplug my new SNES Classic that Amazon finally delivered the other day when Odyssey gets here to plug my Switch back in cause not enough power outlets and HDMI ports on my tv for both at once, so I won't be playing that while I play Odyssey. I will probably play some Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure that I started last year, because it's got that jolly Halloween spirit and I'd like some of that for the season and I still need to finish A Hat in Time, which also won't be a problem for me to play while the Switch is plugged in. So those are the games I'm most likely to play alongside it.

    Also mobile crap like Fire Emblem Heroes I'm sure.

  • @Mbun Since I own many consoles I'm constantly switching them, is your set up that difficult to plug in and out systems?

  • @Torigasa-Reta I'm just worried about breaking the HDMI port on the back of my tv from switching too much. My tv isn't super expensive, but it's expensive enough that it'd really hurt if I broke it. I should invest in a new surge protector with more outlets and one of those receiver things for more HMDI ports when I can but wallet is tight right now for the holidays. My tv is also sitting inside an entertainment center, so it is a little difficult to see what I'm doing back there. Gotta use a flashlight.

  • @Mbun I see, ever thought of getting a HDMI switch?

  • Yeah I will be. Really close to the end of persona 5 (by close I mean about 20 hours lol) really want to start Nier: Auto before goty talk from EZA . So much stuff to finish.

  • @Torigasa-Reta I think that's the kinda thing I was talking about considering purchasing above, but wallet right now is too tight.

  • I don't own a Switch, so to answer you, no I won't be playing anything alongside Osyssey.

    BUT - Back in 2013 or 2014 I played South Park: The Stick of Truth alongside Dark Souls II and it was a summer of very pleasant gaming memories. I can see Mario getting difficult eventually (like Dark Souls II did), so there is nothing better to cool down than South Park. It's so fun to be in that world.

  • @Mbun Oh okay, I thought you meant one of those expensive receivers, mine is a simple $10 device.

  • @Alex840 Only when I'm away I might play something else. I've been playing Mario Rabbids pretty much exclusively for two weeks.

  • I imagine every moment of my spare time will be absorbed by Odyssey (with Stranger Things 2 fighting for a bit of space). If I need a breather, it will likely be a little BOTW or Fortnite: Battle Royale.

    I'm planning on starting Witcher 3 after Odyssey is "completed", so that should take me into 2018.

  • I'll probably be deep into Destiny 2 but i'll keep that on hold once Odissey drops...Wolfenstein has gotta wait as well...maybe 1 episode of Stranger Things s2 later that night lol

  • According to Amazon Mario should arrive tomorrow

  • @ParanoidRED Man I've got no idea how I'm going to balance Odyssey with Stranger Things 2, especially as I don't want to miss the zeitgeist and online conversation for either!

  • Trying to decide if I need to get into AC: Origins this weekend as well....really Mario will be more than enough, and if not I have Destiny 2 and Zelda still to keep me occupied.

  • I don't have a Switch and likely won't be able to get one until December so I think I'm just gonna play some SM Galaxy when Odyssey comes out and try to avoid spoilers.
