Broken forum edition

Anime

Lots of sequels to ok show.

Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shite Shimatta
There's been a new type of isekai lately that gained a lot of traction. It's basically the shoujo isekai (I, girl, reincarnate in a world as ___ daughter)
This one is great and it really deserves the anime.

Kami no Tou: Tower of God
Crunchyroll made anime. Seems to be making some buzz.
Worth checking I guess.

Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen
2nd Season of Ascendance of a Bookworm. Fun and safe isekai.

Tsugu Tsugumomo
Yikes...

Digimon Adventure
It's a remake of the old serie. I really don't know if they can make better than before.
Tri pretty much killed everyone's trust.

OVA

Strike the Blood IV
It just never stops!

Movie

Altered Carbon: Resleeved
Altered Carbon: the anime

Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel III. Spring Song
Last of the trilogy. Haven't started this at all.
Not a big fans of Heaven's Feel... plot makes me feel really bad.

Coming to ToCS, you will find a fascinating storyline with lots of unexpected details about Brain Hack. The story will slowly start, building each character's character, resolving internal quarrels between classes in the classroom itself and increasing the climax when returning to the final chapters .... conspiracy of conspiracy, internal traitors, cunning of leaders. Truly a very interesting storyline.

Indeed, forums. Indeed. You may be outdated and broken, but you'll be missed.

Fair enough.  I enjoyed the game, but I can understand your perspective.  There was also the issue that a lot of content was recycled.  I think the real problem with the game is that they tried to replicate what makes the 16-Bit era RPG's without really understanding what made them great.

wow this must have taken forever to make.

Really think that this has been a golden age of JRPGs/RPGs in general. RPGs haven't been this good since 1998-00. Some of fellow oldz say they don't make JRPGs like they used to in the SNES era. Well we made SNES JRPGs too, its called I am Sestuna and it was trash.


I think that's a little harsh.  While I am Setsuna isn't a great game at all, I still thought it was fairly solid for what it was.  One thing I didn't like about the game was the overuse of recycled assets.

I will give it props for trying. I did like the setting and art, they got that right. The all piano soundtrack, maybe it sounded like a good idea, but tracks were repetitive and some tracks were just oblivious to the supposed mood of the scene, which if you aren't going to have VAs the soundtrack has to show the emotion. The battle system was very bad, the characters annoying and the story was dull.

Banner Saga is amazing. Its my favorite SPRG (good challenge, no grinding needed, trilogy about 60-70hrs, no permadeath but players are knocked out from 1-3 battles depending on how bad the final blow was) the hand drawn art is better than Valkyria chronicles, plus soundtrack by Wintory. You could probably pick up the trilogy for $20-30.

-Loved CyberSleuth but didn't play hacker's memory, just seemed too similar.
Gameplay is certainly nearly identical (some minor changes), but the stories are fairly different, so I would recommend giving it a try if you are fine with the battle system.

-I guess you are sticking to 1 per series but no XC2 or Torna (all time greatest DLC). However those games are so different from XCX. I guess you could have included them.
While there are differences between XBX and the other XB games, I think part of my reason for including the series clause was to allow for variety of developers as there are certainly some developers that produce games (overall) that I prefer a lot more compared to other developers. Honestly, I was very close to stashing AI: The Sommnium file under the VLR entry rather than being a separate entry despite not being in the Zero Escape series due to it being by the same writer and developer.

-No Banner Saga?
Didn't play it.
