Demi AxersiaDragon Quest XI

1 week ago

So the Japanese release date has been set for July 29, 2017. Can you believe it hasn't even been 2 years since the game was announced? And they only missed their intended release window (the series' 30th anniversary year, which ends May 27th) by two months.

How did Square Enix manage to pull that off? For two simultaneously-developed games, at that. How the fuck is Kingdom Hearts III not out yet with no release date in sight?

Anyway, So-Frickin-Pumped! I just got my double pre-order in at Amazon Japan, which is probably a bad idea, because why'd I wanna play the 3DS version right after finishing the PS4 version?

That said, they did manage to implement a password system as a throwback to the the Japanese release of the first game, and the passwords are interchangeable between the different versions, adding cross-save functionality. I'm sure there will be limitations (lest they end up with those absurdly-long passwords from Golden Sun), but being able to quickly jump ahead in the other game should be fun.

Still no information on the Switch release except that "it's coming... someday". If it turns out to be a port of the 3DS release (which I'm worried about more and more...), I'll cancel that version and wait for Switch.

For me this is looking to be the best year in Japanese gaming since 2010.

Demi AxersiaPersona 5

2 weeks ago

Can't decide whether I should pick this up or not... I still have a place where I can get the steelbook for 65 euros, even though Amazon.co.uk has failed me on the regular edition. It used to be 40 pounds on pre-order, but now it's 56 pounds with an expected shipping date a month away.

Anyway, it seems so loooong... Why did Persona games have to become so looooong? I've only played 3 games in my entire life where my initial playthrough went over 60hrs, and this'll probably be like, what? 90 or so? (I know some people say 150, but I doubt that -- I'm not that kinda player). I just think about the limited time I'd have each day, and how long it would take to even get through the thing. Kinda makes we wanna play something else instead.

On the other hand, a lot of what I'm seeing here resonates with me more than the previous two Persona games (of course, it still ain't no HD SMT5, which is what I really want).

I just don't know...

So I thought I'd check up on the latest Google Street View of my grandparents' house in Warner Robins, GA. There's a white van in front it that says "State Prisoners," and 3 guys in reflective yellow vests looking at the the camera. Yup, that checks out alright. Don't think there's been a single trip to my grandparents where they didn't have prisoners trudging through ditches doing... I don't even know what. Are they supposed to be picking up trash? Because I doubt there is any.

Anyway, last time I was there was 2012. I actually considered showing up on their doorstep as a surprise. Taking the Greyhound bus in Atlanta would only take me as far as Macon. Then I'd still need to travel another 15 miles through what I'd describe as no man's land (for US standards, it's probably not actually that bad). Thought about walking the entire thing or hitchhiking my way there, but I dunno... America is weird. When I was last there, there'd recently been a shootout on a nursing home parking lot not far from their house. Why the fuck would there be a shootout on a nursing home parking lot?!

In any case, I figured it'd be too much of a hassle/dangerous/expensive, so I just got my grandfather to pick me up at the airport. But now I'm thinking of going there again along with my girlfriend, and the idea of just appearing there one day on their porch just seems like a really cool thing to do for my grandparents.

Turns out Uber is now active in Atlanta as well as Macon/Warner Robins, so transportation isn't really an issue anymore. Heck, we'd actually be able to get places without having to be stranded in a suburb.

Perhaps we'll go there sometime later this year.

So after 35 hours over the course of 4 days, I\'ve beaten the game. Endings ABCDE, done. It\'s gonna take some time to adjust to real life after that. To accept that the incredible journey I just went on wasn\'t real. The people I\'ve met, the amazing things I\'ve seen... None of it actually happened, and I was just sitting at my desk playing a video game. But it felt so real... I think the last time a work of fiction made me feel that way was when I watched Interstellar.

Needless to say, this game is gonna need a spot very high up on my list of all-time favorite games. I just don\'t know where yet.

Ulty I've played the demo, and it was fucking awesome! I'll wait till it gets cheaper though, have so much shit to play yet and Zelda is pretty much consuming all of my gaming time right now.

Tom Smyth What a year it been for gaming, japanese games in particular. GOTY #1 Nioh - built upon Souls combat into something fresh, complex and deeply satisfying. Nitpick -Shame the magic is OP and enemy/level design pales in comparison to Souls. GOTY #2 Zelda BoTW - makes me excited for open world games again. Theres so much interactivity in Hyrule it puts so many other open worlds to shame. Nitpick - lazy dungeons/bosses. GOTY #3 Nier Automata - Granted ive only finished playthrough A&B so far but i have no nitpicks and it continues to blow me away. Stunning, beautiful. The true GOTY right here i can feel it!

Barring any unforeseen disasters, I should finally get the game in my mailbox today. I was getting real antsy these last couple of days, too. In the 2 weeks that it'd been out in Japan, I didn't hear anything about it. But now that it's been out in the States for 3 days and is still sitting at a 90 Metacritic score, even sources that wouldn't normally give two shits about the game are starting to talk. I've actually had to unsubscribe from a couple of YouTube channels.

I'm excited about the game picking up steam outside of its already established fanbase, though. I mean, I always get irritated when bandwagon jumpers give praise for things that other games in the series (or genre, in some cases) have already done, and then say there's no reason to go back and play the old stuff. But if it means this franchise could become Square Enix's 4th pillar of JRPGs, like the original Nier was intended to be, I guess I'll just have to deal with that.

Anyway, who else is playing it or planning to pick it up? For those without a PS4, it's also getting a Steam release March 17th.

Demi Axersia Was that sarcasm? Yes, KH is still Square Enix Japan's best-selling franchise after FF and DQ.

Dr Eggnog I don't like Kingdom Hearts 1, but liked Birth By Sleep. I respected how Nier was so weird and had great music, but the combat didn't entertain me, and I found it overly manipulative in trying to get me to care about that little girl.
