Battle Brothers: As I have peppered throughout a half a dozen threads, it came out for the Switch and I didn’t have a working PC for the last couple of years on which to game. I snagged it and have played over 150 hours in about 6 weeks. Maybe more or less because the gameplay tracking was broken on the Switch. It bounced off of me when I played in Early Access all those years ago, mostly because of the difficulty and the distraction of other, easier options and life events that required my attention. This time I was determined to learn how to play before diving in probably because the Switch and PS4 have so few tactical strategy games (compared to the PC) and those are my thing… Watched a bunch of Filthy Robot guides and plays and got pretty decent (on easy, which isn’t actually that easy if you have not played). For me, it is the perfect balance of challenge, inventory management, levelling characters and brilliant tactical battles. Battles that in thinking back are much the same each time are imminently enjoyable as the tactical battle mechanics are superb. You have to really think and pay attention instead of just being up your dudes and rolling over bad guys. I like doing that, too, but this just clicked with me for some reason.
I was playing a lot of Super Mega Baseball on the Switch until Battle Brothers came out. Such a perfect balance of sim and arcadey baseball (for me, at least).
I got a new PC a week ago so I can get back to what I like most about gaming, which evidently is more Battle Brothers on the PC version and BB’s child, Urtuk: The Desolation.
