    Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Switch/PS4)

    I've been anticipating this for a while now and jumped into the Switch version today.

    I'm not too far yet but it already feels a lot less restrictive than the first game. Straight off the bat you can jump in the sea and swim. You get a lot more recipes to create stuff early on compared to the first game as well.

    I'm building up the farm on the second island and getting sidetracked, trying to get it looking perfect as tends to happen with these games.

    The writing/localisation has that Dragon Quest charm that I love.

    The Switch version takes an absolute age to load to the title screen and definitely has some performance issues when docked. It runs a lot better in handheld mode though.

    Good to hear people are enjoying it; it does look good.

    Unfortunately my enthusiasm for it was killed when I heard that the much-vaunted co-op mode doesn't apply to the campaign; only the sandbox island.

    That's a shame, they missed a good opportunity there.

    -edit-
    I spent far too much time trying to get this roof right. Just had to give up in the end.

    Ordered this after playing the demo for about 7 min. Will probs be here tomorrow. My first game ever in the genre (lumping everything from Harvest Moon to Minecraft together here)

    It's addictive, one of those games you can spend a lot of time in without realising it.

    I've been exploring the second island some more, unlocked some more recipes, took on some boss type monsters which were a little tough but fun. I got a
    and she's coming in really handy. Also, it turns out there are enemies in the sea so you have to be careful. I got murdered while exploring underwater before.

    I finally got back from the second island after getting constantly sidetracked and I'm now building up my main base on the isle of awakening. New recipes can now be bought using hearts. You gain hearts from building, farming...etc so it all feels quite organic. Hearts also unlock new islands so it's in your best interest to keep building, farming and shaping the land.

    That's good to know. The first was a bit meh after finishing the main story. I didn't feel any incentive to keep playing.

    This game is amazing. I've only just finished the first island, even though I must be at 20 hours or more (is there a way to check playtime?), because I didn't wanna leave. Too busy perfecting my town lol.

    Same! I should have made mine larger from the start. Sucks when you think you're farm is good, then someone wants a toilet room, and you manage to kinda cram it in and you make it all perfect again only to have someone ask for their own little house. I had just enough space left for tomatoes and pumpkins when I got all the building requests. First thing I'm gonna do when I reach the second island is to expand the farm area

    haha I think I went a bit overboard with the little girls request, I built her a tree house, with a rope bridge entry. I'll try get some screenshots.
