Yes!! Suikoden 1 & 2 are still two of my favorite games of all time. I had to look and see if there was any video footage after reading this, and wow the combat looks amazing! Taking the old school and making it dynamic in a whole new way, while still honoring its roots. This looks like it's going to be epic...


jznrpg1459d ago

I love Suikoden . I will definitely get this for PS5 and maybe Switch too

Deathdeliverer1459d ago

Same here. I’ll trust these guys.

blackblades1459d ago (Edited 1459d ago )

Always wanted to try it but never did, but this game looks so good. Like did I just see the characters in different locations and not lined up side by side like the typical jrpgs. Hmmm kickstarter dont those usually take a long time to release the game.

deleted1459d ago

The characters, animation looks so much like Suikoden! It's basically Suikoden, the Hundred Heroes is so similar to the 108 Stars of Destiny. The upgradeable fortress.

Yep! THIS is the Suikoden sequel we've been waiting for... in the form of a spiritual successor.

I don't back things often, but I think I'll back this!

This looks fantastic. I'll be getting it on PC the day it releases! :D

KingofGambling1458d ago

I can't but help notice that the characters bio have a favorite food, so I'm guessing a cooking competition? Like Suikoden II (one of the best jrpg of the 90s)

Stellar Blade: 6. Hmmmmmmmmm.

Levii_9268d ago

I laughed my ass of at the score.

coolbeans67d ago

Yeah. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and read what they have to say, but it's suspicious in the face of other recent indies that've been praised.

Levii_9268d ago

I bet Edge is gonna give Breath of the Wild 3.0 a 10 again.

Tacoboto68d ago

Anyone else playing Stellar Blade and made it to the Great Desert?

I felt the story barely had us do anything here but there are a lot of side quests taking us back and the framerate is kind of all over the place. Curious if anyone else is noticing the same?

It's the only blemish so far in what's surprisingly become my current GOTY.

Levii_9268d ago

I don't see how can the framerate be all over place? It's litteraly one of the most stable games released, unless maybe you have it on Balanced mode, put it on Resolution or Framerate mode.

And yes the Great Desert is almost exclusively just a gorgeous big zone for side quests and fun.

Tacoboto68d ago (Edited 68d ago )

Yeah that's what's surprising me - the rest of the game even on Balanced feels like a solid 60fps (and my display is 120hz VRR).

But even on Prioritize Performance it feels like it struggles in certain spots only in the Great Desert. The Buried Ruins section felt like the roughest area but another one was more into the desert near a statue with scaffolding wrapped around (and a dozen or so enemies including the tentacles).

All the side quests I had there are done now so I may only return now to fish again. But framerate aside I agree - it's one of the more beautiful gaming deserts and this game's side quests have been way more nice and varied than I thought they'd be.

Levii_9268d ago

I have to say i haven't explored the Great Desert 100% maybe just 40%, i plan on exploring everything there on NG+ so i don't know how Buried Ruins feel yet and also i'm running the game unpatched so maybe that's it i don't know but for me the Great Desert is perfect framerate wise if it's not on Balanced mode.

I absolutely agree man, the game is much more than i thought it would be in terms of content, exploration, collectables, secrets and side quests. Classic video game stuff! None of the modern BS. It's my GOTY as well so far.

VersusDMC68d ago

From what i remember the 2 open world hubs only have 1 story mission each. The gun missons. Most of the open world sections are for side missions, upgrades, cans,costumes, etc. Still fun to run around and discover some wierd puzzles there.

I feel like there are some fps dips but not all over the place.

And for people who don't do enough of the side missions...know that you will be locked out of a section of the game if you don't do enough. Fill that lily bar to 100%.

Elda67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

Stellar Blade a 6? That score is blasphemy. Score should be a 9, no lower than an 8. It's GOTY.

badz14967d ago

It's EDGE! The only games they are generously rating are Nintendo games.

Michiel198967d ago

so the 10 they gave to Last of Us, LBP and Bayonetta also were rigged? or only if you don't agree with it?

badz14967d ago (Edited 67d ago )


TLoU and LBP are GoTY winning games highly regarded throughout the industry, what's your point? and what does Bayonetta has anything to do with this argument or even Sony?

The Meta for Stellar Blade is 81 after 130 reviews and a user score of 91. EDGE is giving it 21 points lower. Rise of Ronin? EDGE 60 vs Meta 76, Spider-man 2, EDGE 80 vs 90 Meta, R&C Rift Apart, EDGE 70 vs 88 Meta, Astro's Playroom, EDGE 70 vs Meta 83, Sackboy Big Adventure, EDGE 60 vs Meta 79, FFXVI EDGE 70 vs Meta 87 and remember Ghost of Tsushima? EDGE gave it 60 vs Meta 83...like WTF was THAT?? I can go on dude. It's an established trend for EDGE to be harsh when it comes to most PS games but they are very generous with Nintendo's games.

Stellar Blade deserves more than 6 for the Raven boss fight alone!

robtion67d ago

Finished it 3 times and just got the platinum. Amazing game.

buffig66d ago

I chose to take Adams hand. Beat the boss, started NG+ instantly. I was excited for the game, but it was still more than I hoped it would be. There HAS to be a sequel
