Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Yeah, I foresee a lot of Gamestops being perpetually "out of stock" on the digital-only versions unless Sony is taking a big loss on them.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Aside from a couple of games I’m genuinely interested in everything shown tonight. It was a games showcase with something for everyone. Splendid. I don't actually agree, I pretty much own a PS4 to play RPGs on, and while there were a lot of games that looked cool, there was really nothing that actu...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Someone on Twitter pointed me to this clip, presumably from the Japanese trailer, which shows a bit more of the combat, and it looks potentially promising.

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I'm a huge fan of both the Persona games and the Warriors beat-em-up games, especially the ones based on other franchises I've loved, so I was naturally super excited when Atlus announced that they were working with Koei-Tecmo on a Warriors-inspired Persona 5 sequel. One of the biggest reasons was t...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I loved Xenoblade, but wasn't planning on spending the 80+ hours to play through it again, until I saw they added an epilogue, now I'm not so sure. Same here. Wasn't sure I could bring myself to play the entire game again when I have a substantial backlog, as much as I loved it. But turns out the E...

Re: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

I'm currently about 75%-ish through the remake, after bouncing off it originally, and yeah, as others have said, it's basically Persona 4.5. The Fire Emblem references basically consist of the names of weapons, some characters, and some sound effects, and that's pretty much it. The combat is super f...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I've played Temtem for about an hour and a half so far, too short to form any real opinion, but so far, it's pretty much exactly what it looks like, an MMO that's almost an exact mechanical copy of Pokemon. The only major difference is that all battles are 2v2, to facilitate co-op play.

Some details on Pokemon Home https://home.pokemon.com/en-us/?cid=&utm_source=tw&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=pokemonhome&utm_term=january28 Not really surprising, but they continue to charge for things that should have been free in the base game. You can kind of use the trade features for free, bu...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I'm not sure time to 100% complete for a Pokemon game is a particularly useful metric, since I assume that includes catching every Pokemon, which while fun, is well beyond the scope of what I'd consider normal post-game. That said, according to that link, Sword and Shield have the shortest completio...

Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 were all individually complete games, you did not have to buy both to get a compete experience.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

PMD is fine, not my favorite, but I might pick it up at some point, though it's a bit weird that they're remastering an old game with none of the Pokemon from the new games they should be trying to promote, rather than making a new one. I'm glad they're addressing the lack of content in Sw/Sh, but I...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

It was a bit of a weird year for me, some highlights: Kingdom Hearts 3 - PS4 It’s hard to fairly evaluate a game that was so anticipated for so long, and Kingdom Hearts 3 wasn’t a bad game by any stretch, but after waiting for it for so many years, I was hoping for so much better. The gameplay was p...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I had a similar experience with LM2, I tried again to get through it leading up to the release of 3, but going through the same rooms over and over got old quickly. I've really enjoyed what I've played of 3 so far though. Also, I find that aiming is much easier with the motion controls than with the...
