Not a word yet. I'm still hoping for this year but wouldn't be all that surprised if we don't get it until 2019. DQ localization can be pretty slow.

Especially consider SE's other high profile releases this year (KH3), I don't know what that's going to do for DQ. I personally think they might be adding some features to the US release like they did with 8 - voice acting and orchestrated music and that's what might be taking so long. this is a likely possibility.

 

anyone know if SE has any events in the upcoming months of Q1 and Q2 where they may be prone to release such info?

661 hours with 42 games played, earned 474 trophies.

 

1. Persona 5 - 114 hours

2. Nioh - 60 hours

3. Tales of Berseria - 55 hours

 

I don't even remember putting that many hours into Berseria, still haven't finished it either lol. Probably would've spent more time playing but so many games came out last year across all the consoles and PC.  Been playing a bunch of FF12 and finished Yakuza Kiwami recently. Just started Yakuza 0, so we'll see how long it lasts me.

164 hours total for me.

 

Bloodborne was number 1, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk was 2, and Puyo Puyo Tetris was number 3. Last year was a very busy year and I did not get much gaming in, plus so much of what I did play was handhelds. I think I've already put in 30-40 hours this year but it's predominantly been on my Switch.


Too much real life, not enough time for video games

KH3 isn't releasing this year.  If it was they'd have a release date out along with preorders for the collectors and such editions.


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

I'm hoping to tackle my backlog more this year. Most of the years releases will be skipped by me other than whenever Spider-Man, God of War and RDR 2 are out, along with some Atlus 3DS stuff. Yakuza 6 will be bought, but i'm behind on games and Kiwami and 5 come first. My friends want to play Monster Hunter World, so that will be my multiplayer game of choice for a few months. I will likely not play that much on my own though.

 

House in Fata Morgana and Yakuza 0 will be my first 2. I am almost done with Yakuza 0....think i have like 3 or so more chapters. After that it's Persona 5.

Unless they announce a November/December release date at or before E3.

all of my gaming is done via sony.
ps4 mainly than vita than ps3. i do still turn on the ps2 here n there but that won't count.
i also turn on the snes n genesis once a year to play for a day.
my ds, ps1, gba, gbc, & wii are all dead to me.

I'll probably get a switch thou once a nice bundle or limited edition console pops up that i like so that'll kill my psn hours.

or if i buy another car and start messing with it, that'll also kill my hours.

I wish I could participate, but no, Sony just loves to not send me any emails. :cry:

Same here, only emails I have ever receive from Sony/PSN is my monthly bill for Vue. Though Nier:A was my personal GOTY for 2017, If I had to take a guess it would be 95 hours of regret on Persona 5, followed with a larger number on Berseria because Velvet Crowe is the best Velvet, along with many many hours on Cyber Sleuth farming those Platinumnumemon. 

 

Speaking of Cyber Sleuth, looking forward to Hacker's Memory arriving tomorrow. No idea if the preorder bonus is a day one card or what the case is. Amazon listed exclusive items but I had a bunch of credit with Best Buy and picked it up there. Issue is the BB site does not list any bonuses with the game. Guess we'll find out tomorrow.

So I'm not sure if anyone here is actually living in Japan but apparently there is a limited time Yakuza shop open at the Shinjuku Marui Annex until January 31st.

Speaking of living in Japan, they are adding FF, MH, Conan, and Sailor Moon themed events to their Unviersal Studios. The Conan mystery dinner sounds so fun, along with the MH experience.

I'm curious, so would all of your play times be similar across several devices, or is PS4/Vita the bulk for most of you?

 

Hell, I had 26 hours, and compared to some, that's maybe a few days of play time. Last year I spent most of my game time on the 3DS actually(and Wii U), so if I could get times from there, I may come close to some here. But if most of you have those hours across 2-3 devices, holy shit, does anyone here sleep? LOL

Mostly PS3/PS4 for me last year. 3DS wasn't played much, hell I played my DS more by replaying TWEWY. Switch I probably put in 150-200 hours due to BoTW, Odyssey, and Mario Kart, but Playstation was still the bulk of my time with P5 and Y0.

 

95 hours of regret on Persona 5

What does that mean lol


Now for the picture of the day:

I wish I had as much time for gaming as most of you have. 

 

 

263 hours over 29 different games
 
you earned a total of 51 trophies
 
top most-played games of 2017:
 
FALLOUT 4 - 135 hours
SKYRIM - 51 hours
SKYRIM VR - 29 hours
 
 
I think it's time for me to take a break from Bethesda games and put some serious effort into Breath of the Wild and Nier: Automata.

Yeah, every year is different for me. Next week I can start playing my Vita, and not touch the 3DS again for 6 months. Even though I didn't finish it, Zelda on the Wii U was probably my most time for the year on any one title.

For Honor - 1078 hours

 

Elder Scrolls Online - 818 hours

 

Stardew Valley - 78 hours


I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

"Over the months, you played 312 hours over 15 different games, while making the most progress in April with 72 hours of gameplay.

Top most-played games of 2017:

1: PERSONA 5 - 144 hours

2: YAKUZA 0 - 77 hours

3: NIER AUTOMATA  - 50 hours

In 2017, you earned a total of 136 trophies (Psst, that puts you in the top 10% off all trophy earners! Way to go!)"

 

April makes sense, that's when P5 came out.

203 hours over 54 games

 

Persona 5 - 44

Atelier Shallie - 36

Neptunia Four Goddesses - 28

 

So I pretty much spent less than an hour in at least 50 games (I'm not sure how much Sonic and Senran Kagura would take out of the remaining 95.) I think I shall retire from the CAG lifestyle to spend more time with my waifu.

1300 hours over 49 games, with 184 in October.

Overwatch - 364
Persona 5 - 164
One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 (plat trophy grinded this) - 93

Pretty sure a solid chunk of those hours were spent idling in OW while watching anime.

Did manage to grab 767 trophies with 100 earned in July.

Hooray for stats!

In the MH beta, I solo'd Nergigante with CB (Charge Blade). That dive attack of his caught me way off guard the first time. I'm looking forward to beating the MP version with friends later. :D
 
I also played the Metal Gear Survive beta. I did matchmaking with randoms on all the maps and it is really fun. I guess I  enjoy the crafting and the smooth gameplay.  Surprisingly, everyone in this beta is well organized and knows what to do. It makes it hard to top-score to get the best mats. :razz:

2017 wasn't my best year for gaming, even if it had some of the best games. So mine isn't super impressive. I think I may have also spent a lot of time leveling up alts in WoW or something, too.

 

My first trophy was in Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds -Overdrive- so shout out to Olengie.

 

347 hours over 95 different games (I did a lot of very briefly sampling games from the backlog this year)

 

Most progress in June with 80 hours.

 

Top 3:

Persona 5 82 hours

DiRT 4 50 hours

Samurai Warriors 4 32 hours

 

383 trophies, most trophies in July with 71.
