Combat apparently gets even more complicated as ESB Gold from Fogingsam's blog


Combat apparently gets even more complicated as ESB Gold goes on and you open up access to shields, learn to parry, and develop a pool of spells to cast. I just had a little bit of time to perform, however, and that I sadly didn't get to see any of that. I also didn't have a sense of the bigger game, which involves going on quests, finding treasure, and customizing your own, private town. Blades is a free-to-play game monetized around using jewels to unlock treasure chests: you can spend some time playing and develop a pile of these, or you can spend money and purchase them outright to get candy loot faster.

All of these other components -- the advanced combat techniques, the feedback loop of adventuring and town-building, the balance between jewels earned vs. gems bought -- are crucial to Blades, and their failure or success will reflect back on the game as a whole. However, not one of those things count for much in a game that isn't fun to play.Based about the little that I played, I don't believe Elder Scrolls: Blades will have that issue. We will find out together when it begins opening up for early access later in 2019.

Playing Skyrim on Nintendo Switch is an incongruous encounter. The Elder Scrolls Blades Boosting is such a huge game that playing with it in brief spans on the subway seems almost wrong. Toss in some hefty load times and battery drain and it's clear this was not a game made out of mobile devices in mind.
