I am super into this game. Everything about the way it plays, all the mechanics, the characters I’ve met so far and the story, it’s delicious. The trickiest thing to adjust to so far is telling my hands not to do Dark Souls things, like click the left stick to lock on, which crouches in this game, or trying to dodge roll in any direction.
Also, I’ve found I prefer holding the joycons separately rather than using the grip. The grip makes my hands rest too far towards the middle of the grip instead of resting my thumbs on the sticks, because the handles don’t come out far enough from the middle and aren’t big enough to fit in the curve of my hand. Separately I don’t have a problem. The right joycon actually doesn’t feel weird to use at all, with the stick in the middle of the controller, but hitting the “d-pad” buttons on the left joycon does. It’s partially because they’re further apart to simulate face buttons of their own and aren’t in a single physical plus shape, but also because the WiiU controllers had the d-pad and face buttons set a little bit inward from the sticks instead of directly down. It’s taking a bit to get used to, certainly, but it hasn’t caused me to die yet.
Hey if you’ve seen nothing about the game at all, there’s a cool secret on the great plateau, down in the forest area.
