    Played Hawkeye a bit today and tbh there's not a lot of positive things I felt from the demo. Graphics are decent and the battle system feels good enough, although not sure how rewarding it would feel in a longer perspective. Controls are really weird, I felt as I was sliding on ice all the time. Sound effects are atrocious - somebody tried to go a nostalgic route and the effect is hurts my ears any time I open a check or pick up an item. Voice acting is pretty bad and cut scenes feel rather poorly directed - they cut out at weird times etc. And even dialogue skipping is weird, instead of skipping a sentence you seem to be jumping ahead by a couple lines.

    I just stared it up. There's an option menu at the front of the demo, you can adjust controls, text progression, sound levels.
    And, if the voice acting is cringe, you can switch the voice audio to Japanese.

    Also, there's an option to switch to classic game music

    EDIT: Also, since we're doing Hawkeye. GODDAMN Isabella's entrance.

    Music is fine actually, it's the 8bit sound effects that annoy me.
    Controls are not the problem too, it's just the way the character reacts to them... Like I said, there's this weird little slide they do instead of turning smoothly, I dunno.
    Text profession is also not the issue here, but rather the fact that you can't skip text like you usually do in games. You either listen to the whole thing or do weird jumps in cutscenes.

    Anyway, I will try to play some more today probably, maybe I was scranky yesterday

    I definitely noticed the weird jumping with skipping text and weird cutscene transitions. I actually thought by skipping some text I had missed a scene a couple times.

    Controls I didn't notice too much. I did have to change the voices to Japanese. Normally I'm fine but man English voices were not great.

    All that said I am enjoying it. Looking forward to this. Loved the game as a kid.

    God damn, this game has a ton of charm. SE did a damn good job with this, this game was a huge part of my childhood. I’m looking forward to the release, hoping corona-chan doesn’t get me first.

    Tried the demo and the cringey voices and kawaii desu crap really turns me off to this game.

    Change the audio language to Japanese, makes it less bad.

    Finally got to play the demo, jesus christ this is like the perfect way to remake a Mana game... if they had done something like this for Secret of Mana it would have been amazing...

    Ugh, posts not going through today.

    PS4 vs Switch -- what are peoples impressions? Have the Switch demo, but seems like the frame rate's kinda laggy.

    Switch has performance issues that isn't present on others. Visual fidelity is hard to tell the difference, might notice some jaggies and less or lack of AA on switch compared to PC and other consoles.

    I've actually heard the PC Version of the Demo was the worst version

    How the fuck? The demo performed perfectly fine for me, only thing is that the framerate caps at 120fps even with a 144hz monitor. The game looks great otherwise in 1440p.

    Yeah same here. Played PC demo. 1440 high graphics. Never saw frame drops and was super smooth.

    Trying to find where I heard it, may be twitter shenanigans, but I remember it from someone I trust...

    Sounds like they’re shitting you or they have a PC that runs Windows Vista.

    LOL Vista.

    Thanks for the input, friends! Looks like I'll either go PS4 or PC (likely PS4).
