Is the US getting Rabi Ribi by any chance?

LRG is supposed to be offering it at some point, so I would say YES!

A little underwhelming for it being a 5.0 update. However I'm glad to see that they will finally allow notification blocking while watching video. I just pray that they actually set the video streaming apps as "video" and not just physical media and movies through PSN. I could totally see them screwing that up.

 

Being able to set friends to groups will help figure out where the hell they came from too.

Will look forward to the PC version being bundled for less than $5 about a year after its release.

Actually found a match on Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax on the Vita. I beat the guy and the guy rage quits. Not cool bro

I'm always down for some games if you want. It's really fun on the Vita, imo the best fighting game on the Vita.

 

Not thrilled that we get multiple iterations of Goku and Vegeta. But that 3v3 mode seems insane, I guess it's like the one in KoF14 but in real time. Or like the coop versus mode in Street Fighter X Tekken but with 6 people. 

 

That streaming to community thing seems cool. The explanation for it is confusing though.

Looking forward to this game, but wish they had transformations, as opposed to multiple versions of the same character.

:vita: Tokyo Xanadu $30.30 (I don't know much about this game, but I remember Sovereign had a couple of reviews about it and had favorable things to say about the game. With the enhanced version out soon, I guess it might get even lower.)

I found the game quite enjoyable, and being a Falcom game, had the feel of an Action Adventure Trails of Cold Steel. Many of the characters were like a lot of the Cold Steel cast and even had a Towa character, but I would either wait for the PS4 release with extra contect or would wait for the price to come down a little more. I put about 70 hours into two playthroughs, and platinuming the game. The first run was fun, but found myself speeding through the 2nd playthrough just to finish it.

I ordered the CE, also I hate that my favorite characters got paired with my least favorites on the steelbooks. Yda is right next to Tidus and Zidane, and Terra with Bartz and WoL.

 

It seems so random like there was no thought outside of which poses looked coherent next to each other.

Question for anyone who's played both Dragon Quest Heroes games:

 

Will I miss out on anything if I skip the first title? Or like most musou games does the sequel render the first obsolete?

 

Own them both and got an itch to start one of them, if the 2nd is nothing but improvement I'm OK with just writing off the first because time is valuable and backlogs and etc...

 

 

Also thanks to everyone who advised me it was OK to play Persona 5 without having played the previous games. Beat it and loved it. Definitely plan on playing 4 (golden) and maybe 3 (portable?) at some point.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Unless you are in it for trophies or something you are fine to skip the first one. The second is better in basically every way.

Damn you Square Enix.  That's another four new mandatory steelbooks and another $120 CE that costs $200. 

 

Dissidia is going to be so baller, I can't wait!

If she was your favorite character you'd know that was Y'shtola, not Yda. :p

While Portable is worth playing for Hamuko, it's the worst version of P3. FES is definitive. If you've got a PS2/PS3, definitely play that version first.

Thanks, not worried about trophies. I'm def leaning towards skipping 1 because I don't want to get burned out and enjoy 2 less.

FES has always looked more appealing to me, The cutscenes and emoting 3d models seem like a big sacrifice to make. I feel like the shortcomings of P3's combat system could just be mitigated by playing on a lower difficulty? Not really going into 3 for the combat since I doubt it's as refined as P5's. Just interested in the characters/story mostly.

Honestly, you're not going to get a lot of difference in quality of combat between any of the versions of P3 or P4, though I don't remember if they'd implemented party direct commands by FES or not. Ultimately, it all comes down to the same strategy, though--knock down the enemy as quickly as possible without burning through too much HP or SP, and then all out attack on whatever's left alive. Combat's just something you kinda slog through in P3/P4, trying to either grab enough XP or money for the next month.

I've found that listening to audiobooks makes those dungeons much more tolerable.

Hands down, first choice would be the Lightning steelbook. Sephiroth would be my second pick. So I'm sure I'll end up with the Cloud one... :(
