Square Enix Just released a new and large batch of screenshots and artwork of Drakengard 3 (Drag-On Dragoon 3 in Japan), that will hit the shelves of the archipelago of the Rising Sun on October the 31st.
This better be brought to North America.
looks at thumbnail...*sigh* http://my.spill.hollywood.c... http://www.polygon.com/2013... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... -_- there's a reason the best games of the year are from the west, and there's a reason that even sony's best first party studios are western studios.
But wait, I thought it was all "underage girls who will likely be wearing little clothing or at the least, skirts, and their personalities will be -mean girl with a softie side -shy girl -logical girl because japan has yet to come up with an original character in the last five years" and "androgynous teenagers with convoluted and messy hair styles." This doesn't look to be any of that. Even the thumbnail doesn't show any of that. I'd list some of the great Japanese games- indeed, some of the greatest franchises of all time are Japanese- to come out recently, but it'd be pointless, as you'd have some utterly stupid reasons for why they were overrated or something. Odds are, though, you haven't played any of them.
http://cdn.dualshockers.com... -convoluted hairstyle check -Zero (ゼロ Zero?) The protagonist of the story. She is an utautai (ウタウタイ?), one who is gifted with the ability to manipulate magic through songs. Zero does not mind being in a relationship with many men. However, she has a violent disposition and is easily irritated. Zero's left arm is prosthetic and she also has a distinctive flower growing out of her right eye. emphasis on "she has a violent disposition and is easily irritated" which basically is another way of saying, mean girl with a softie side, the softie side is the fact that she is a slut who has sex with multiple guys, which i'm SURE you think is empowering, this game is not doing anything new, especially not from an art and character design standpoint, but i'll leave you to your delusions
japan never changed style for years, just like many dev in the west that can only do shooters(I said many, not all). it's either you stick with fantasy games or go with shooters.
Being promiscuous is in no way " a softie." You only decided to call it that so that it fits something you've already said. Typical, and expected. But completely and utterly wrong. And amazingly indicative of your usual comments, devoid of any objectivity or factual basis, and instead full of misconccptions, misdirections, flat-out lies, and self-delusions. Pathetic doesn't even begin to describe you. Your bubbles, though, will be gone soon enough.
Translation of the above: "this game has a scantly clad lady. It MUST be bad!" PS: Sony's best first party studio is called Sony JAPAN Studio.
ND would and Quantic Dream would like a long word with you on what Sony's best first party studio is, for example http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... but of course that's just bias right?
@CrossingEden Translation of the above. "I'll cherry pick three games and make of it a sweeping statistic". Your ignorance is baffling.
@ CrossingEden btw, Quantic Dream is not a Sony first party studio
Thanks for the share. EDIT: WTH? Young Nier is in the game. Would love to play this game in English in the future.
god i hope this game never gets released in the west, stupid ppl like CrossingEden above is one of the reasons not to mention the stupid articles about sexism OT: i love Yoko Taro games, this is a must import for me. can't wait!
