Whichever path you travel, this JRPG holds beauty and excellent combat in store.
Excellent and I cant wait for tomorrow!
I love the art style they were going for.
amazing score, can't wait to start playing it!
Who in their right mind would pay $90 for a 2d sidescroller rpg in this day and age. Absolute insanity.
TIL: $60 = $90
@fewDankMemes I will be spending the $90 (overall after taxes here in the Great White North) because I think the game will be worth it! Referring to pricing as $60 or even $80 is a standard when talking about full-price titles on the interwebz though, I would suggest using those as it should not undermine your point - even if your claim is pretty loose. Even including the tax too to put more gravity on your statement when everybody else already assumes you pay taxes to a variable degree when purchasing anything. Now for your actual point, it really depends what type of games you enjoy. I could ask why do people enjoy watching the umpteenth Fast & Furious movie (I do lol) when its filled with tired clichés in this day? Or why do people play multiplayer games over singleplayer games when you get more "value" over multiplayer games replayability? It really does not matter as it depends on the person's perspective of "getting their money's worth." Although I don't really think you'll understand or are just trolling, I feel like that is not understood enough at least. Let people play video games if they want! Don't downplay something because I could easily do the same for whatever you are playing and not see the worth in it. For example, "Why play Call of Duty when its the same every year?" Just let people be since they can choose how to spend their time!
Google isn't a thing there
"Who in their right mind would pay money for a good game?" What?
$90 is a lot money. Hell, $60 is a lot. It's not strange for someone to question a value proposition, it's kind of the crux of being a consumer.
That's some bad dyslexia if $60 is 90 to you.
The collectors edition is 90-100 beans, he's probably referring to that.
Is dyslexia what they call currency conversion these days? My bad
Dyslexia for cure found. It was an article headline on a newspaper in the naked gun movie.
@Fist4chin I love the Naked Gun, hilarious movie.
This is like 80 hours plus of content. And I'm not sure if you know what a side scroller is?
hey if you're an aussie like me - yeah it's a total rip! Check out Ozgameshop where the offer is 70 dollars. Better than 90 XD I cant believe the vita got ripped to shreds for the memory cards but people dont give a shit about the switches cartridge and nintendo e-shop tax. Hypocrisy.
You Aussies and Canadians pay through the nose in taxes for everything, I'd blame your governments before you start blaming anything else.
Lol we don't pay much more taxes than you. Trust me, it's not a lot. I'd rather pay a few more dollars in extra taxes here and there if it means that we get free healthcare and free social services. Also, taxes isn't the issue here, it's our currency. Either way, even $60 for a game that looks and plays like it came out 25 years ago is wack. That's like if they re released Final Fantasy V and expected you to pay full price for it.
@fewDankMemes No, you do pay more. For everything.
Learn to read? I said we don't pay much more. Not we don't pay more. And that is not because of taxes lol. I'll take my free hospital visit and surgery if i ever get in a car accident for a few more percentiles of taxes vs a 100,000 dollar hospital bill lmao
“We don’t pay much more taxes than you.” Been to Aus, Can, and the States. States pays significantly less taxes on goods.
I'll take those taxes if they'll take our gun violence.
@meteorpanda, My Aussie bro! I've been using Ozgameshop.com for years but still can't get my friends to buy from there, I think they'd rather ha e it right away.
@Bastrad one who's house is made of glass should not throw stones, just saying mate.
Its not a sidescroller?
I paid $40 by purchasing through Amazon Prime.
I’m not a fan of turn based games at all so I won’t be getting it, however it seems well worth the money considering how many hours you get out of the game.
Don't buy it then.
You're probably talking about Ontario. Dude minimum wage got upped to 14 bucks per hours this year, stop being cheap and support good products, i know i will. Or just move to Alberta, cheaper taxes
Both this and Captain Toad Treasure Tracker this month and I still haven’t finished Octo Expansion, Donkey Kong Adventure or Hollow Knight from last month. An amazing time to be a Switch owner!
why mention toad? How is that a plus to switch owners? Nintendo added nothing new to the wii u version. A straight up port for 90 dollars (aus) and you're happy with that?? Buy yourself a second hand wi u, the game itself for 15 dollars and save yourself 50 bucks XD
They added stuff, looks like you missed the whole Super Mario Odyssey levels add-on. Also it's $40 in the US so sucks that it's so high AUS but for everyone else, it's a great buy.
Like most Switch owners, I never got to play it on the Wii U unfortunately. It has new stages from Super Mario Osyssey, but then again, every stage is brand new to me as I never played the Wii U version. My job includes alot of traveling so I would barely have time to play it if I bought it on the Wii U. I don’t live in Australia. Hope that cleared things up. :)
Well that makes no sense. Chances are a 2nd hand wiiu and a copy of the game will still cost more than just buying the game on switch.
I think drstronk was being sarcastic ?
Also the Switch version removed levels. Terrible port.
Hollow Knight will be getting more content too. I just hope they don't drop it when I'm right in the middle of Octopath, lol.
Hollow Knight is AMAZING!!!
Sonic Mania Plus,Shining Resonance Refrain,Titan Quest,Code of Princess,Mega Man X Legacy. Been a crazy month.
Its time to get my Jrpg on!
Nintendo and Sony is really doing great this gen with first party exclusives
Even though that's true, this isn't a first party game so....
It is publish by Nintendo though and I doubt this will be on another console
Published by Nintendo 😊 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/...
Be that as it may, Square Enix is not a first party studio. Facts.
Servbot41 Bloodborne was actually co-developed with Sony Japan, so it had first party involvement in developing the game. But the involvement of first party has nothing to do with a game being exclusive. They're two independent things. A game being first party, pretty much all the time, means that a game is exclusive, but the fact that a game is an exclusive does not mean its a first party game.
So it's not first party. First party means their own devs, but this is made by Square Enix.
Not first party but Nintendo still owns the ip.
Zeldafan64 Really? That doesn't make much sense to me since its being made by Square Enix.
Square Enix owns the Octopath Traveler trademark. https://trademarks.justia.c...
3rd party exclusive technically. Published by Nintendo does not change that fact.
Now I'm on fire.
I can tell this will be a game that I will love but won't have time to finish lol but at least I'll give them my support with a purchase
IGN reviews mean nothing to me, but this game looks excellent!
they are a mixed bag of bias lately lol
its not even that really, its just most times I read or watch their reviews I dont find they really convey what the game is like at all.
you can get their video player to work? you are a God. Some reviews are pretty whimsy l agree, they're mostly on point mentioning the things l was looking for though so cant say l agree with the lack of information. I just hate the review score system where in the end people will judge a game badly if it's below a 7.
it works for me, but I find it laughable that they called 1440p 2K :).
Octopath Traveler looks great.
I can't wait to start this game, this is going to be soooooooo good. Prologue was amazing also.
Wayfarer comes from distant lands soon.
Why do I want to buy a Switch right now for this? It reminds me of the year I bought the 360 for Mass Effect and found Lost Odyssey. I wanna play this so bad.
Looking forward to this one. I wont have time to play it right away but im definitely getting to it
I see people complaining about the art style of this game but I'm sure for alot of people it's the art style that attracts them first. I wanted this instantly just from the art style. Now I want it more as it turns out it's a good game too.
from what i see, it's not a near perfect game... i'd give it a 6/10
Well then thank god we go by what we play, and not what you see.
Glad :) it's not for me though
Side thought. This is how the Romancing Saga series should be remade.
I'm 10 hrs in the game and really loving it. Recommended for those looking for that 16 bit jrpg feel and nostalgia.
I gotta get a switch already square makes this for Nintendo but not playstation ffxv wasn't bad but why waste all that time and money on realistic looking food when u could of fleshed out...(cry)
