River City Super Sports Challenge looks so awesome, love the mix of Sprites and 3D backgrounds. Just kinda sucks its not on PS4 as well, also that there doesnt appear to be dodgeball or volleyball

I just wanted to prove that I bought this like I said I would. For $30 I'm pretty happy with it. A soundtrack, nice manual movelist thing, 50+ page digital manual. A lot of companies could learn from this.
The banter and stuff is pretty great. I hope the next one gets localized, so I won't have to Google translate Kirino and the Irregular Magic High girl talking about who's onii-chan is better.P_20151024_200420_1.jpg

For some first thoughts on some game demos/trials.

 

Youkai Watch - Pretty fun overall. Simple type story for the demo at least where the Youkai are affecting people and you're just the kid with the Youkai Watch to beat them up and gather them to your team and help people on their issues. The battle system is a strange one where you use the touch screen and a spinning wheel and to get Youkai to do their special attack you click on them and do what the screen says like spinning a thing or touching icons. Once you're complete after a time the Youkai will do a special attack. While this is going on Youkai are auto battling and such. There is some quirks and may be elemental weakness like Pokemon but I don't know yet. It's slightly repetitive but is fun to find and battle Youkai and some tough bosses. The bug catching part when interacting in the enviroment isn't such a fun side diversion. You click on a bug and a spinner goes around and you need it to stop on white. If so the bug is yours. That's about it. There may be more quirks but that's whats in the demo. The graphics are nice and the world seems nice. It has that Level 5 charm and I hope it becomes a hit outside of Japan. Pre-ordering for sure.

 

Euphoria - Yeah this one is not for the squeamish. A bunch of people are somehow put in a death game in a white roomed place. It's all a mystery and the players are finding out how to escape. It is a very perverse (this is an Ero game) experience and quite unique. I love the setting and the characters are all unique. The graphics are excellent and not real death games are always unique. I think the game will provide an interesting look into the pscyhe of the characters including a main character who may find out more about himself than he thinks. Seems like it will have a lot of twists and turns and I made two choices when you could and they seemed to lead to a different game playing out afterwards. This isn't a normal ero with a harem or such (maybe it is...I doubt it), and is likely very dark. I am extremely intrigued and this easily gets my pre-order. Seems to be a very high quality game.

 

I will play Code: Realize soon and give my thoughts about an hour after playing it.

So in case you're all wondering where I've been gone to...I finally just beat Trails in the Sky FC. Somehow I'm really happy I waited to beat the game this long up to now; that ending really, really hurts. 

 

Oh yeah...1-to-10 rating? A solid 9. There was this kid in the academy who was a coffee addict singing the Coffee Song and all and I was telling myself, "OK review over, instant 8.5." That happened pretty early on...the rest of the game did not disappoint. Interesting combat system especially with the orbment customization. The last dungeon though I did find myself just spamming a lot of one or two of the same arts "White Gehana" and such. You can even survive the final boss with ease if you know how to troll it. 

 

Two worst offenses: Every conversation is just like me - a wall of text and will make a lot of people go tl;dr. In fact one night I spent three hours playing the game...One hour was arena fights and grinding, the other two were cutscenes. I spent 45 hours in game and I'm going to guess half of that at least was reading dialogue. Not that I didn't like what I read but WOW...that's a lot of text. Second, again...dat cliffhanger ending...ouch. 

 

So ready to start up second chapter.  :whee:

 

Tits FC is just an enhanced edition of the original Tits right? Same story and everything just improved graphics and a few extras? Blea, i've been so busy i havent gotten to my play through of the original Trails in weeks. Still gotta try to get that PSP 'do you want to quit thing fixed before i keep playing and I havent wanted to mess with that

Trails in the Sky FC is the original. The enhanced version you're thinking of we don't have in English and it's has the word "Evolution" in its title (And it's a Vita only title). All FC/SC means is First Chapter & Second Chapter. They didn't include FC in the title of the English release though. Probably because they weren't sure they were going to be able to translate the second game. It is in the second games title though as evidence from this steam store page for SC.

 

The PC version is "enhanced" so to speak by having backported features that the PSP version received as well as having the textures from the PS3 version to support higher resolutions. That was all XSeeds doing though and it wasn't originally like that.

 

 

Trails in the Sky is of course playable on the Vita and PSTV with the PSP version.

Nice where did you get it ??

Gamestop, I had to (carefully) take the price tag off the cardboard box, that they had on display, but the game and soundtrack were still sealed, in back, at least.
The guy who sold it to me actually commented that he wanted it too. Plus he didn't even ask me if I wanted to pre-order Assassin's Creed 9 or sign up for a Power Card. He seemed pretty cool (he'll probably be replaced soon).
Hopefully, I didn't beat up his waifu too bad last night. Kirino can kick some major ass when she wants to. Too bad Manami's not in this.

Manami isn't even a bad girl. A lot of people even like her and say she's their favorite character. I was just joking about her being a homewrecker, seeing as she's actually not. Anime girls cockblock each other for MCs all the time. I just don't like her (like most glasses girls in anime. They always seem to have a certain type of personality that bugs the shit out of me).
Anyone who hasn't watched it should do so though. That one comment could sooorrrt of be taken as a spoiler, but all the main important stuff is still waiting you.

True she was my least favorite girl easily. I even found the Tsundere pop idol girl more likable. My favorite was Kuroneko easily. Yeah there is still a lot to know, even though I honestly thought the ending was the weakest of the weak sauces. Still a fun series and has some drama and character growth for some characters to make it a decent series.
