    I had to trade my Nintendo Switch to replace my PS4 after someone spilled water on my PS4 (I'll replace my Nintendo Switch later!!)
    Right now I'm playing:

    Destiny 2 (the grind is REAL)

    Bloodborne (I wish I could get a Bloodborne anime, I can get the comic books but I can't get enough BLOODBORNE)

    Everspace (I never figured a space-piloting rougelike RPG would be this fun! You play as a clone of one of the doctors in the 24th century who went rouge and your trying to figure out who you are as you jump between sectors of the galaxy. You also have to repair your ships systems, maintain enough fuel to use your jump drive, AND NOT DIE IN BRUTAL DOGFIGHTS OUT IN SPACE!!)

    Hollow Knight, 8th hardest Switch game...

    I've played it and can recommend it. Sure, while it is difficult, if you've played a Soulsbornekiro or Metroidvania you know what your in for. Memorizing enemy attack patterns is simple (at least it is for me), the main struggle I had is mapping. Each time you venture to a new area, make it a point to have enough Geo to buy the map from the NPC Connofer.

    The art style is GORGEOUS, as everything is hand drawn. The story is presented in the trademark Soulsbornekiro fashion, vague at first and, once you unravel more along the journey, kinda depressing. The lore is well thought out, and for what is supposed to be a kids game it can get kinda deep at times.

    I wouldn't let the difficulty deter you from buying the game and playing it, but if your confident in your own ability wait for it to go on sale again (I got it on switch for half off at one point). After playing this there is another game you might like if your into Norse Mythology called Jotun that also has a great story and some gorgeous hand-drawn visuals with a little bit of difficulty.

    And I've gotta give you some credit. Most people don't like admitting that they don't like anything difficult, even to themselves. And to be honest I used to be the same way, but after playing Dark Souls I realized that difficulty in the video games I play lead to the growth that I have as a gamer and it made me better for it. Sure, Bloodborne and Dark Souls make me feel like I'm busting a brick wall with my head, but at the end of the day if I can attempt a boss a million times and kill that boss on the million-and-first attempt I can play any game that I set my mind to. And if I can play any game that I set my mind to, I can do anything in life if I apply myself.

    Gaming doesn't just entertain a person, it leads to the growth and enrichment of a person. I'd of NEVER passed World History without the interest in history I got from Assassin's Creed, nor would I have put myself on the road to completing high school after dropping out if I never played Dark Souls. I'd of probably been in jail for punching someone if it hadn't of been for a game like DOOM to take out my rage on demons, and all of this doesn't take into account that gaming lets you traverse worlds like nothing else.

    So pick up Hollow Knight, embrace the difficulty and begin the path of growth. Trust me, you will die a great deal, but if you analyze your deaths and see where you went you went wrong you'll not only grow as a gamer, but also as a person!

    I appreciate that. Really. I do. But it's like the more I try to research Hollow Knight on my own the more I only come across 'it's hard. it's hard. IT'S REALLY FREAKING HARD.' and that still turns me away from it.

    I tried being competitive with a fighting game once and I was never able to figure out what I was doing wrong and no one helped me with that. Now obviously this isn't a fighting game or that somewhat 'do it on your own' BS mindset most fighting game communities seem to have but it still turns me away from it.

    Admittedly I've played other hard stuff like Persona 3 FES 'The Answer' (bosses took several attempts) and Crash N. Sane Trilogy (levels and really everything in general took several attempts until I memorized the level pretty much) and I was rewarded in Crash by being able to get all gems in all games sans for one gem in Crash 3 (the speedrunning one) I don't know if it's similar to that and yeah I put myself through it but it was different because it was Crash. I guess.

    The more I look into it the more I get turned away because of difficulty but I'll still keep what you said in mind.

    I've finished MEGA TROLL ASS Kingdom Hearts 3 (including Re:Mind) so I've officially moved on to Yo Kai Watch 3. Because I NEED to after that BS I just went through. :mad:

    I finished Yo Kai Watch 3 and my Nintendo 3DS in general last night.

    Really fun game honestly. The tactical stuff will probably help prepare me for Digimon Survive. At least a little anyway. A little help is better than no help at all.

    I got the Final Fantasy Yo Kai's in the game too. So I'm pretty much satisfied. RIP 3DS. I knew thee well.

    Regardless... I'm officially moving back to the Switch and will be playing Yoshi's Crafted World.

    I'm starting to think that I'm getting through my backlog too quickly. Which is what I was afraid of happening when this pandemic started. So I may try to force myself to slow down a little bit. How I'll do that... well... I'm not sure yet. :confused:

    Regardless... I finished Yoshi's Crafted World last night. Cute game. Last world was pretty dark for a Yoshi game though. :eek:

    So I'm back to the PS4 now and have already started playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy. I will be attempting the Platinum because it seemed doable for me. We'll see how that goes I guess.

    It's been quite a LONG time since I've played the original Trilogy of Ace Attorney games though so it'll probably be good to revisit them.
