That feel when I'm still getting Star Wars Battlefront 2 anyway.

Project.hack Game Series Could Get Remastered “If the Demand is There”


IMOQ had an excellent story and I would definitely pay for a remaster, even with the shitty outdated combat, but I'm not paying for the utter trash that is G.U. to get it.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

Guess I'll give them a mulligan.  Get it right this time!

 

 

Interesting..I didn't know this was coming.  As someone who recently played through both S;G and S;G 0..  and then watched the full anime series..  I can say that I enjoyed the storytelling in the original games and voice acting much more than the anime with english dub.  So I'm not sure I will like this new product.. although I will admit I don't watch any anime outside of jrpg cutscense so I don't have a taste developed for it.  Regardless, I'm glad the series is getting attention and the new rework of S;G seems like it will be a great fit on Switch.  Might even rebuy if I can get the original voice acting.

 

Thanks for these updates, Supplice.  I should check this thread more often.

About god damned time.

 

And what the hell? The PS3 original really has at least 150 DLC? I feel the need to look at the Japanese PSN store to see this ludicrous display.

Thank you for posting that. Wow, I just watched the whole video and ugh... that part where they showed the loot crates you buy with money will give you additional credits too was disgusting. I still don't really get it to be honest, I feel like they made it so complicated and put in stuff like level restrictions is to cloud the heavy impact that microtransactions have on the game.

I too watched the video and am truly impressed at the level of work that went into designing, coding, an implementing such an elaborate system to screw you out of your money. End of the day folks are going to buy it, EA will make a killing, Disney will wonder what all the fuss was about, nothing will be learned and the cycle will start anew next year. 

 

Looking forward to the next Atelier game. I keep buying them but have not really played much of any of them. I think Too Many Shallies was the last one I really enjoyed.

Does Best buy charge when you purchase it? 

Do they put a Temp charge and then clears and charges when ships?

Thanks in advance

They do a temp hold, but I swear it last for weeks. As I see it for extended periods each and every time I buy something online with them.

I've gotten the PS Vita releases that are physicals, but none of the PS4 releases. I'm a sucker for physical PS Vita releases.

I think there's two, maybe three things to consider.

 

1. How badly do you want the ability to play it on the go?

 

2. How much does the (potential) quality/performance difference bother you? Probably the best you can look to for this are reviews of Nights of Azure 2 on Switch:

3. ..Trophies? Do you care?

Guess I will pick up the PS4 ver. then.  Don't really play on the go and if there is some performance issues on the Switch might as well just stick with the PS4 ver. then.

The only reason I picked up Nights of Azure 2 on PS4 is because I have the original on PS4 as well. I felt like I should keep the series on the same platform for some reason.

 

Atelier will be a little hard for me to decide a platform. Atelier games have recently had alternating platforms (PS3/PS4/Vita and now Switch).

 

I guess the portable aspect in Atelier is a winning factor for me, so I'll likely get the Switch version.

I actually started the game a few days ago on Switch and playing docked It's alright, but handheld mode you can tell there's drops.

If I'd mainly be playing in handheld mode, still playable or avoid?

Honestly I can't recommend it if it's handheld mostly, It reminds me of SAO Hollow Realization on VITA(Not saying the game looks as bad we're just talking frames) where if you can get used to the drops the game is playable... but most people will notice something is off.

I can add to this. They put a temp hold when you first order it, then it goes away. It seems to randomly come back until the item is shipped. I guess it randomly comes back from time to time to make sure the funds are still there? I dunno. Just make sure you have enough to cover it from the time you pre-order until the release date.

 

I personally stay away from pre-ordering games from Best Best with a debit/credit card if they won't be released for a long time because of this.
