My opinion on controller layouts is that the Playstation layout is superior. The symmetry just makes sense to me.

At the same time Sony just sucks at making controllers. 8bitdo also adopted that standard for their pro controllers and that controller actually feels good in your hands. It also has a really good D-pad which Sony seems to refuse to put on their controllers.

But I'm an idiot who uses the 8bitdo Pro2 for both PC and the Switch. It's a really nice controller and it is easy to have it paired with multiple devices. At the same time that kind of just makes the transition between systems harder sometimes because I am literally using the same controller.

This was the path I took through the game. You can tell I scrambled to get some gyms done between the 4th and 5th titans so I could nab the Iron Treads that appears after you beat the 4th titan in Violet.

I ended up getting this for PS4/5 over the holiday. I was on the fence about getting the switch version and looks like I made the right choice. Hopefully there is a patch for those that already have it on switch.

I picked up Scarlet at launch and I am progressing nicely.  Yesterday I finished up the Normal gym to make 4 gyms beaten.Then had a row of Titans to beat and I now only one left. I haven't done anything with Team Star yet. 

I have my 6 pokemon team and just leveling up them. I do like the change of the gym badges and it going from pokemon won't obey if they are over a certain level to if you catch a pokemon at a certain level then even if they go over that level since you caught it below that level it will still obey you. You could in theory only have one badge and hatch an egg pokemon and level it to 100 and they will still obey you.

The Co-op is super fun. Just chilling in a Union Circle with 4 people is so much fun.

Oof, I wasn't expecting the score to be quite this low around here, though the review itself still has a number of positive things to say. For me, the co-op adventure alone is enough to propel this up to being the most enjoyable Pokémon game.

I don't think the game explains it well at all but it does make sense and it does work as an incentive to do the gyms and keep your levels in check if you happen to know about it.

I'd add 2 more games to the Multiplatform list, although both could essentially be on the PlayStation list considering the target audience: Stranger of Paradise: FF Origins and Soul Hackers 2. Neither will get any traction with the larger community, but I played the hell out of both those games and they'd be in my personal Top 5 of the year.

I added both to the multiplatform nominees list. Apparently Stranger of Paradise was an Epic store timed exclusive on PC, which some people were not happy with.
