Single-Player RPGs / Re: A JRPG About BOOBS!

Arent all jrpgs already about boobs

At the very least, every Tales Of game is required to designate at least one member of the party as "the boobs", as I like to call them. Luckily, whoever that is usually has a completely different personality to the others in the series.
Would that be Velvet in Tales of Berseria?  She was the bustiest of all the ladies in the game.

All this talk about Alundra and no one mentioned the stream? :(
As fond of my memories of that game, watching the stream has reminded me that the game has its technical issues as well.  The game, by today's standards isn't anywhere as playable as it was for its time.  One thing watching that stream does, though is make me miss Working Designs during their heyday.  Say what you will about Victor Ireland; but when it came to the games they localized, every effort was a labor of love.

General Games / Re: God of War 2018

I am looking forward to playing God of War.  Unfortunately, for me, I bought the game for my mother, so I have to wait until she's had her fun first.  Why didn't I buy it for myself instead?  I think the game looks great.  The more deliberate combat does have me concerned, but I think I'll be able to adjust to it.

I do think it would be great to have a really good fast paced hack and slash game.  The most recent installment to the Ys series has some really fast paced combat, but it isn't really combo heavy the way a true hack and slash game would be.  The thing with hack and slash games is that I could easily see them follow the games as a service model which seems all the rage with Western publishers.

Ideally the game would have a solid single player (or offline coop multiplayer) campaign.  Once you beat that, you can have competitive and cooperative online multiplayer modes.  Some can be player vs player direct competition and even arena style battles where teams of players try to take out the most enemies possible while racking up the best combos.  Such a mode can be scored based on number of kills, number of deaths, and highest combo.  If implemented well, you could easily have a game that would have players coming back for more for months.

This game is enjoyable, the town design is top-notch, and it's probably the closest I'm going to get to another Suikoden game, sadly.  On the other end, the story seems pretty shallow so far and I'm roflstomping everything in combat, but it does make for a nice, relaxing experience.

Also Arvis, I'm sorry that you're wrong, but Goldpaw has the best town theme. :P
I concede that the story is somewhat shallow, but the characters are well defined and entertaining, so I found myself caring about the narrative.  Even the villain gets some development, but I think his motivations could've been foreshadowed better.  Aside from those two issues, I do think that the story was a solid overall.  It was helped by the fact that I really dig the British vernacular interspersed throughout the game.

Also, I have to say I really like the boss music that you hear throughout the game.

Not necessarily.  I just finished Ni No Kuni II and it feels like a complete game regardless of the fact that there's DLC coming.

Isn't Trails of Cold Steel 3 confirmed for PS4 in NA?

To my knowledge, not yet. We know Falcom wants to bring it and other Trails games over, but a localization has not been formally announced.
And if we are lucky, the lack of any announcement means that XSeed has the license since they tend to not announce localiztions till they are close to being finished.
I am so looking forward to that announcement.

Probably.  To be honest, part of the reason I am passing on the game is because it's a half assed effort.  If you aren't going to bother with adding English voice acting and doing a barebones localization, why should I invest my time and money in this game.  It's clear someone at NISA decided this game isn't worth doing a proper and complete localization, so why should I play this game?

I should note that I am Setsuna didn't also didn't have its voiced dialogue redone in English.  While this was annoying, it was insignificant in terms of content.  It was literally just battle voices, so that isn't much of an issue.  However, according to a clip of the game's cut scenes I found on Youtube, there is a considerable amount of voice acting that NISA isn't redoing.  This seriously pisses me off as in this day and age, this amounts to half a job.  Fuck them!

If this game ends up in the bargain bin, I still won't touch it.  The only way I would ever consider playing this game is if it becomes a monthly freebie to Playstation Plus members. 

One last thing, in spite of all my complaints about it, I don't have a problem with including the original Japanese audio so long as English voice work is also present.  I know a lot of fans prefer listening to the original language so making the original dialogue available makes sense.

Agreed on Goldpaw.  I also think Hydropolis is also particularly impressive.  I also like the Sky Pirates base.

I'm probably going to give this game a go around once I've dusted off Tales of Beseria and Whys VIII.
I have the game downloaded myself.  I plan to get into it once I clear my backlog.  My tentative plan is beat Ni No Kuni II and get the Plat.  Then play a shorter game, then tackle two of my back log games.

General Games / Re: Mega Man X Collections 1 & 2

The two discs for the physical release makes no fucking sense.  These games are tiny by modern standards.  Both collections should be able to fit on one disc.  It's a criminal waste of our limited resources to manufacture two discs for a collection that would be package together as one product.  Whoever the fuck is that signed off on this decision should be fired.

On that note, I think it's neat that the games are coming out for a new generation to enjoy.

I read that the story has Japanese audio.  Pass.  If I can't have English voice acting, I want none at all.

I've finally gotten around to playing this game.  It feels like I'm playing a cartoon and it's a blast. One thing I like about the game is just how beautifully animated it all is.  The game is definitely one of the most gorgeous games of the year.  While you have a lot of Western games come out with some absolutely spectacular photorealistic visuals, this game's visual style still makes it incredibly memorable.  The game, as I stated prior looks like a living, breathing anime, which is I think an equally standout achievement.

I do, like others have mentioned lamented the monster variety.  I think menagerie is a little thin in its diversity.  On the other hand, the monsters that are on display are animated beautifully and their designs are crisp and clean.  Every single monster type (I am referring to the base designs, less palette swaps) is distinct and has its own personality which I like.  Again, it would've been nice to have greater variety, but it seems that with the care put into each the developers decided to go with a less is more approach.

On the other hand, the game has a group of special monster encounters called tainted monsters.  Unfortunately, they are simply souped up regular monsters with no unique designs which I find disappointing.  Tales of Berseria had something similar with their Red Hunt monsters, but those had unique designs so I found this a little disappointing.

My favorite aspect of the game, though is the world map.  What I mean by this is that it's a traditional JRPG world map with all the nooks and crannies to go with it.  I get a feeling of discovery whenever I find a cave or forest that I can explore while traipsing about the world map.  Having it back has been a breath of fresh air.  I've never been a fan of the lack of world maps that have cropped up in JRPG's of late, so seeing this back has been a pleasant surprise.

I also find myself comparing this game's main dungeons to the dungeons in the recent Tales games.  For the most part, the dungeons in Tales of Berseria, for instance are very drab and feel like hallway simulators.  There really isn't much to do in them and I can't help but think that in the transition away from the traditional world map has taken something away from their dungeon designs.  Even the open areas felt the same.  It really came cleared to me when one of the site's staffers recently streamed Tales of Vesperia with its more interesting dungeon design.  On the other hand, Ni No Kuni's dungeons all feel unique and their designs a lot more interesting.  For instance, exploring Cloudcoil Canyon feels a lot different from Niall Forest.  The places are very different in both their look and how you explore them.  If the game had a greater variety of monster designs, they would've been even better.

Overall, I like the game and would definitely recommend it to others.

The good news is that we're getting this on PS4 and PC by September 8th (in theory). The bad news is that we're not getting the sweet style changing 3DS version at all and the Switch version is still 'up in the air'.
The Switch is selling like hot cakes.  The Switch version will almost certainly make its way to the West.

I want the shiny platinum trophy, though. ;_;  I like collecting them.

I completed Ys: Memories of Celceta back in January.  I've been largely idle since.  I am playing through Secret of Mana, but grinding for equipment drops has been a fucking chore.

I don't have a Vita, but the next best thing.  A Playstation TV.  I played the shit out of Ys: Memories of Celceta on the thing to the point of nabbing the platinum trophy.  Now while I did use a guide to help me, I still felt a strong sense of accomplishment when I earned it.  Beating the game on Nightmare Mode wasn't as harrowing an ordeal as I thought it would be.  Either being max level with end game equipment makes that much of a difference, or I don't suck as much as I thought I did.
