Cool! The first one was great!
As an NNK and Level-5 Games fan, the changes in Revenant Kingdom are very much welcome. I've nothing against the familiars, it's just that if this is L5's way of keeping things fresh, then so be it. Personally, I am not a fan of monster collecting anyway.
Think of it as the way SE revamps the gameplay in each mainline FF game. This time, we'll experience different approaches in familiars or cute companions in each iteration.
I want this game, though I wonder if the other players can join you through online matchmaking. It's cool, however, if this is just a couch coop kind of experience.
This game is coming out this month in Japan! Let's hope for an early 2018 Western release too!
Xbox Box X's game is simply better specs, so Sony automatically wins if they play within the same field of "better" specs; however, Sony will not settle for the predictable. The PS5 will have a few eyebrow-raising features that will define itself way beyond the competition outside awesome exclusives and third party support.
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom and Dragon Quest XI are coming out this year, although the latter is the Japanese release, so, yeah, this year is indeed amazing for Japanese devs. Not to mention the Japanese-made games that already came out like Nier: Automata and Nioh.
I hope the English version isn't too far off. I need an AAA JRPG that will capture my inner childhood again. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will most certainly do that, but I want this game too! FFXV was a bit of a let-down for me, to be honest.
@wonder, Yes I am if it would mean no more PSN hacking and more stable network environment. I mean the PSN still has a lot of things to improve on and I'd rather they focus on those things first. Like I said I can see the value in crossplay, but the experience I am already getting from the PS brand, aside from online play, is already better than most.
I still back my case.
"This would be the real console war and would show which platform has the upper Hand."
-Console wars are are bad, though console market competition is good depending on your perspective. Still, we all know who has the upper hand this gen, so I don't think is an issue.
Eh... people will always have something to complain about. To me this cross-play thing is pretty minor, and I'm sure we're in console gaming for the games first and foremost--and Sony delivers on THE GAMES!. Look, I get the value in playing with more people than when only being confined in one network group, but the PlayStation's network group is no small environment, so I am okay with Sony's decision to be restrictive.
I am no network guru, but I am sure th...
I thought gamers over the years have grown enough not to force SEGA to incorporate hugely overgrown breasts in their games. I was sorely mistaken.
The supernatural element in UC4 was completely non-existent. The mud footprints lead me into believing there would be some, but it was completely dashed shortly after. That said, I agree, the supernatural undertone was sorely missed in the latest UC game.
Both Sony and MS underwhelmed in their respective conferences, but MS needed the dazzle moreso than Sony. Again the 1X is in the same spot as the Pro in that it is not next gen but its specs are trying to be, which confuses gamers. The one big ace that Sony has up its sleeve is its exclusive lineup, which the 1X is still sorely lacking.
If the 1X is a Trojan Horse of sorts, like some 2 years from now it will transition to next gen, meaning it will leave behind the vanilla a...
Konami should bring their A-game back, not just the Castlevania series! To be honest, although Bloodstained could use a bit more speed in its gameplay, I can see it giving me what Castlevania has not over the past few years. If Konami revives Silent Hill, and not just on the Switch, then I can finally welcome them back!
There's a word they call strategy. Sony peeps know they got this gen in the bag, so, while E3 is still pretty much a relevant platform for them, they now have to strategize and save a good chunk of fresh announcements for PSX.
I admit I was a bit underwhelmed with what they showed at this year's E3--because I was really looking forward to From Software's next game--but I am confident I will get my expectations met before the year ends, one way or another at PSX....
I don't have a PSVR yet, but I look forward to getting this game (I'm a fan of Supermassive because of Until Dawn). That said, if Inpatient can be played without the PSVR, I'd get it day one!
They are listening, but not listening to every request. If they do, we won't have original IPs in no time, and they will find themselves in a similar position as the Xbox in which they too lack real exclusives.
On-topic: I am stoked to play this with remade graphics. I wonder what bonuses they will add?
Yup, smart phones are robust, but not when one is required for voice chat on a console that should have the feature in the first place.
Different strokes for different folks (console companies). Personally, I prefer to be notified about exciting games even 2 years prior and have the excitement simmer up until release. And it's not every AAA game that Sony announces 2 to 3 years in advance, so I don't see what the fuss is all about.
I remember back in the PS1 and PS2 eras, third party companies would announce sequels way ahead of time (think RE0 and RE4 on the Gamecube) and it was fine. Like I said d...
Imagine a game like CoD with cross-play, which allows PS players and Xbox gamers to duke it out--mayhem, and not in a professional, tactful way. So, no. I'd rather Sony further improve their network, so people within the same network from across the globe enjoy a more seamless online play experience.
