The hyperbole, sensitivity, hypocrisy, and all other colorful adjectives that describe the current political culture in America is borderline intolerable on a day to day basis. Now we have frequent forays into these topics from gaming personalities on Twitter, on Youtube, in gaming articles--most of which written from one very particular mindset with a thinly veiled agenda--let's leave the CAG deals forums out of this, eh? It's probably against the rules, but it's also just a generally bad idea. This will not improve our relationship as a community, nor will it enrich this thread. Can we all just move along?

I don't know about anyone else...but i'm slightly getting tired of just hearing about this game remaking and that one remaking. Usually the games are very good though, but eh not as exciting for me anyway. I never did play the Hack GU games though, so that will likely be my only must buy eventually. I also second a P3 remake. I do also hope the Shenmue 2 pack HD one is a real one, though I bet those games aged horribly.

My thoughts on remakes very on a situation by situation basis. I am generally pro remake/remaster, though, as I primarily game on PC now--if at all possible--so higher resolution, better textures/effects, and especially higher frame rates for games are all awesome and very impottant things to me. People frequently mention that gameplay, story, etc are more important. But looking at two versions of the same game removes that silly argument and refocuses on just an objectively better version of a title.

 

If I haven't played it, I'd love to play a better version. If I have, there's now something new and better to experience if I ever decide to go back for a round two down the road. It is somewhat lazy from devs/publishers, and we are getting saturated with them, but better versions of great games are still a pretty awesome thing!

I thought it was Fist of the North Star punches myself, in which Jojo is referencing but I could be wrong. Never seen/read any JoJo.

 

I actually enjoy remakes, especially for way older games like the Metroid one coming out. I'm just never really excited about them. It's one of the reasons I haven't played Yakuza Kiwami...since I beat it already....but they're good. Most remakes/remasters are very well done these days.

Same here. I'd rather stick with the original versions of most games, especially if it's a "remaster" that's only a generation apart. Good example are the Arkham titles, which looked and played better on the PS3 than they did on the PS4.

 

The Metroid remake is one I'd buy. It looks like some actual effort went into that to make it a whole new experience.

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Personally I love all the remakes they have been doing.  The truth is, past games are often times a lot better than what is getting put out now.  Maybe you missed it the last time it was published, or else you want to play it with improved HD graphics.  Things like the Final Fantasy 12 re-release, Yakuza Kiwami, and Resident Evil are awesome to have on the current gen.  Plus they release them at cheap, affordable price points.  They've also been porting games to the big screen that were previously handheld-only, like Danganronpa and The Nonary games.  The devs and publishers make a bunch more money (from the properties that truly deserve it) and we get remastered games for cheap.  It's a win-win.

I really wish they were remaking Radiant Historia for the Switch instead.  That would have been awesome.

At first they were releasing them at decent price points but FF12 was $50. And I think they're closer to enhanced ports than remakes.

Has Square said anything about a physical release for Octopath? Looks cool from the trailer but I'm afraid it's going to get the I Am Setsuna treatment.

- Adol's 'Silver Armor' Costume

- Adol's Survival Kit

Vita

- Adol's Adventurer Clothes

- Adol's 'Silver Armor' Costume

- Adol's Survival Kit

- Language Pack (Japanese Audio)

 

Figured I'd post them since the costumes are free for a limited time if I remember correctly, which is the first week only I think. Also, here's a link to the Tuesday update post with the other free DLC.

hmmm i have the sudden urge to start watching wwf again, or maybe certain fight clips lol.

You should! She's Kairi Sane (Hojo), the Super Moe Japanese Niche Anime Pirate Princess Waifu of WWE now.

She's as anime as it gets:

She's still a great wrestler though:

Sorry for the gif spam.

 

You'll hit a realization one day that wrastling is basically an anime in 3D form

This is correct. Cena is pretty much just the protagonist in a Shonen anime who never loses. Roman Reigns has plot armor. Wrestlemania is the Final Battle in the last episode. People die, get retconned, then come back to life. And there are Aliens (Goldust), Zombies (Undertaker), Demons (Finn Balor), Swamp Sorcerers (Bray Wyatt), and waifus (Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Kairi Sane, etc.)

 

Seriously, and that's just WWE. I've seen NJPW just pull out entire gimmicks from anime.

Yeah, I highly recommend it as well. The holidays are going to be a bloodbath for this thing. If "N" smart, they'll start working overtime now, and make damn sure for every system sold, there's another one to replace it. They could move a few million easy, if the inventory is there this holiday.

 

But I've seen them just so out of touch so often over the years, it shouldn't surprise me if it sold out by December 1st, only to not return until late January, early February of 2018. Hopefully that doesn't happen, as they may not get another holiday like this for a long time(a new system selling well, and a new 3D Mario to go with it).

Has anyone got the Inside/Limbo double pack?

 

I have. But I haven't installed and played it yet. Kind of wanted to take my time and enjoy that one. I haven't played Inside yet. I played Limbo years ago, but wouldn't mind showing it off to some friends on the PS4.

 

Also, there has been an Atlus leak implying that Dragon's Crown is going to be coming to the PS4. I'm pleased by this. It isn't nearly as "necessary" as some of Vanillaware's other titles. But it is still a welcome development. Personally, I would have preferred to have Muramasa on the PS4, but Dragon's Crown is also nice, and will probably perform very well. Now that they've ported their engine and toolset over to the PS4 for Odin Sphere, it is understandable that they would start releasing some of their older titles on the platform.
