  1. Can you be invaded anywhere at any time or is only in certain places? Can't remember.
  2. In my experience, magic definitely makes the game a lot easier from about the midpoint onwards. O&S are still bastards, but once you get lyast them it's fairly easy. I remember killing Gwyn in about five seconds flat with a few Homing Soul Masses and the levelled up Soul Spears.

    Gotters' helpful guide is on the first page of this thread. It's very simple to do. You can set up multiple separate accounts for different eshops, but I tend to just have one and switch it from region to region depending on the biggest discount. 95% of the time, though, it's the South African store. As for language, it's my understanding that the game defaults to the language you've set up for the console itself (i.e., English), regardless where you buy it from, as long as the version you buy supports the language the Switch is set to.

    I felt the same way until I discovered region switching and the South African store in particular, which is typically about 30% cheaper than the UK store. Now I don't buy certain games until they're in a Switch sale, even if they are still a bit more expensive than the PS4 versions, because I know that I'll be more likely to play them. This has become especially true lately with a one-month-old baby at home and very limited man cave time. Celeste, for example, which I've been wanting to play, is cheap as chips in the PSN sale at the moment but I'm still waiting for it to appear in a Switch one.

    Thanks for the replies. I may have to get both, sigh. (And possibly Cave Story as well )

    Double post.

    Do you play the same five levels over and over, though, trying to get a higher score each time, or are there other modes? I'm not wilfully being ignorant - just want to know why it's so revered.

    I'm tempted by The Binding of Isaac at that price but I'm a bit dubious when it comes to rogue-likes. I didn't last long on Enter the Gungeon but love Spelunky. I'm enjoying Into the Breach at moment as well, which has rogue-like elements. How hard is it and how long does a typical run last? I've never played Ikaruga, either. It's only five levels long though, isn't it? Is is just a classic hi-score chasing arcade game or is there a bit more to it, like Velocity or Nex Machina?

    Into the Breach - #perfectforswitch

    This has properly clicked for me now in my last couple of sessions with it and it's great. I'm currently on a playthrough in easy but it's still adequately challenging trying to do all of the objectives on each map. I find it plays more like a puzzle game than something like XCOM. Even on the lowest difficulty it repeatedly makes me feel like a genius, and by all accounts I haven't even scratched the surface yet. It's almost made me wish for the Switch version of Dark Souls to be delayed for a couple more weeks so I can devote more time to it. Great stuff.
  10. Just pre-ordered my copy from Base.com for £28.85. Seems to be the cheapest price for the hard copy. Digital version is slightly less on the SA eshop but I'm not sure how much your pay on conversion charges. Moreover, it seems only right to get a 'proper' hardcopy version of the game. Are all of the online features only available with the Nintendo online service, or is it just co-op/PVP? Can you still get messages and bloodstains in cheapo online mode?
  11. I think I'm going down the Holy Knight route and learning some miracles, which I've not done before. I've never actually seen the Solaire quest to the end

    Thanks. I had £10 in Nectar Points so thought I'd be able to pick up some credit on the cheap! Nevermind.

    If I buy an eshop credit card from Sainsbury's can I credit it to my South African eshop account, as it's classed as European?

    Into the Breach - #perfectforswitch

    I bought this blindly about a month ago in the sale on the strength of the reviews, thinking it was a linear strategy game like Advance Wars or Fire Emblem. How does it work? So far I've played it through on normal, completing two of the islands before being killed and being warped back to the start. Do you keep anything for subsequent runs? I had two pilots but they both died, the second one (Ralph) in the final encounter before I ran out of power. I got some golden coins and bought another squad but I never seemed to have enough reactor power for the upgrades. I couldn't find an option to buy any more pilots either.
