Yup. I was ready to pre-order Ni No Kuni 2 until I found out combat was real time instead of turn-based like the original.
Pokemon is the most popular game franchise on the planet and its turn based. Not sure why Japanese devs feel they need to make everything real time.
I feel obligated to buy Dark Rose Valkyrie in two weeks just so my voice can be heard.
The Switch is a Wii U, 3DS, and Vita in one console. It's going to be a JRPG powerhouse in the next few years. Once that Pokemon bundle drops, I'm buying it.
Why not negotiate with Sony or Nintendo to make Sleeping Dogs 2?
Dark Rose Valkyrie comes out in two weeks!
Yup, Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Spiderman, Ni No Kuni 2, and Yakuza Kiwami are still on my radar this year. It pays off being a Bestbuy Gamers Club member.
This is gunna be an expensive holiday.
I just want Shenmue 1 & 2 Remastered, confirmation of Yakuza 6 in 2018, confirmation of Shenmue 3 in 2018, confirmation of Ni No Kuni 2 in 2017, TLOU 2 gameplay. Everything else is a bonus to me.
For me, the Switch IS a viable alternative to the PS4. 90% of the games I play are JRPGs with PS3 graphics. Both the Switch and PS4 will have these in spades within the next 3-5 years.
Dude, do you know if Multiverse Mode requires PS Plus?
So happy people are supporting JRPGs in the West!
I predict that Far Cry 5 will be the standalone pirate game we've been asking for. Origins will be the traditional AC game that people want.
Since JRPGs are my absolute favorite genre, I go to sites and Youtube channels that cater specifically to that genre like RPGamer or Luis Alamilla.
JRPG fans aren't as concerned with outdated visuals/animations as much as a long epic story with multi-layered characters/gameplay. This needs to be accounted for when reviewing JRPGs.
If we're talking this generation, Persona 5 and Uncharted 4 are my two favorite games.
UC4 is the best in the series for me. ND could have gone with a bigger and louder approach to UC4 in order to surpass the train scene in UC2. Instead they decided to go for an emotional story about brothers, greed, and the lengths people go for fortune.
I actually teared up a bit in the beginning when Nate was in the attic recalling his previous adventures.
Same. Best game I've played since MGS3: Snake Eater.
Nintendo doesn't need to worry about "winning" E3. It's an exhibition, not a competition. They just need to worry about selling consoles well into 2018.
I want to see:
GTA 5 Switch
Wario Ware Switch
I appreciate that Sony wants to expand the VR gaming market by creating an affordable product, but you're absolutely right. VR has a LONG way to go before it becomes meaningful enough for it to come standard with all future PS consoles. I'm assuming that's what Sony wants.
I don't see the appeal of paying $50 for 4 hour games like Farpoint personally, but it doesn't matter what I think in relation to what the market thinks of it.
You may be right. The insider says there will be a "pinch" of Black Flag. Naval combat might not be the focus here. I think Ubisoft will surprise everyone by announcing some sort of standalone pirate expansion. That's what gamers have been asking for.
Black Flag is one the the best games of this gen for me, particularly because of the naval combat. No way I would buy an AC game without sea combat at this point. Black Flag spoiled me.
I plan to do the same with mine. I just want to wait to see if Nintendo releases a cheaper dockless version.
