I think the problem I have with FF XV is that they are making major gameplay enhancements like 1-2 years after the game released. Yeah I bought it at launch, but I have not finished it. Now I want to wait till there is some complete edition of everything before I go back to it because why bother if they are gonna keep changing it.

 

Also WTF is up with Ni No Kuni II. Don't get me wrong, I am really looking forward to that, but they really changed the whole game and not just made it a sequel. I kinda liked the pokemon ripoff of the first game, but oh well.

MH World rant:

 

Spoiler

I am tired of these people too. The entered my quest against odogoran and it was a story mission. You get 3 continues in this match and they used them all giving me a gameover. If you're too bad and you're dying just leave the quest. Don't screw me over.

 

And most people don't even use/have their mics. It's ridiculous. I'm trying to talk to them or give instruction and I get nothing and they often don't follow my instruction. I'm the quest leader. If I want to capture instead of hunt then you need to not attack.

 

I'm not that far in the game as I've been playing just for fun mostly, online in expeditions and all - but that's grown boring.

Glad my pre-order copy from Amazon came with a super fucked up case. Returned it and decided to wait and just kept the DLC. Not like I would have had time to play it anyway

@nothing371 You need to find friends to play with, play with cags, or solo everything. It's sad, but true, you risk the chance of getting bad players when going with SOS. I've been playing mostly with my friends (who are veterans of the series, played practically every iteration since PSP) since I hit HR, and have learned to play as well as, if not better, than some of them.

@dead_batteries doesn't matter if they're JP players or not, my experience with JP players are about 50/50 when it comes whether they know what they're doing or not. Played with some who were downright terrible

@nagpo you can try to learn to do captures while they run if randoms keep ruining it for you or just try to capture anyway at the 'nest' spot. At your point in the story, they shouldn't be able to kill that quickly even if the skull pops up next to them on the map. Also, not everyone has a headset/mic, so you shouldn't be upset with people for that since you don't know their situation.

Also for all you guys mentioned, you can kick people if you feel they are ruining the quest for you if you posted the quest. I've kicked a decent number for silly things like carting twice, being idle, or being very rude/cocky and/or then wind up being useless.

Not really anything new this week. A few ports mostly and a few of those are worthwhile if you haven't played them (Darkest Dungeon & PuyoPuyo). Although I don't list RPGMaker games, there is a decent looking Touhou one releasing this week on PC named Oracle of the Forgotten.

Not sure if it was mentioned previously, but the JP store added two new free Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal themes.

One is actually family appropriate with good music. It will replace the RWBY one I’ve used for the longest time, aside from the KOF 14 Santa Girls theme during the Holidays, since my 9 year old also uses my ps4.

Doesn't every ps4 come with a mic? I've bought two and both have come with a small little mic and ear bud.

Cool. The other day I was thinking I would prefer themes centered on each team. I downloaded the free themes, and I'll buy Crimson Squad if it gets added to the US store. Ryobi is my favorite character, but Crimson Squad is my favorite team. I like everyone in it.

And I just saw a Bioshock Collection theme was added two months ago. I'll buy it when I start playing the remastered Bioshock Infinite. The transition is awesome.

Right now I'm using one of the free Nier: Automata themes because I'm currently playing it. I switch themes every couple of months, and try to use a theme for the game I'm focusing on. That's usually possible thanks to all the free themes. So far I've only bought Makoto's theme for Persona 5.

Arika said that if the game does well, it could also receive a physical release, as well as a PC version via Steam.

 

So most likely no physical release at launch, but maybe one later on if it does well.  I just hope they do get a PC version out.

 but if a Sovereign Edition is coming next, I'm going to hold off.

I want a Sovereign(NX-73811) edition, where the game changes in to Trails of Cold Steel and includes Miku as a playable character, and takes place in the Star Trek universe, and comes with Miku figures, and is only on the Vita.

You know @BRW...I'll bet that dude that helped mod the Cold Steel PC stuff "MikuTsubasa" (?) is probably working on sticking Miku into Cold Steel. But for a good Star Trek game? ... Yeah. Maybe in another reality. Oh well. :lol:

 

I'm honestly getting tired how Square Enix is milking FFXV to levels of insanity I thought I'd never see. Mobile edition, season pass stuff, Windows Edition...WHEN WILL IT EVER END? :whee: They might as well put it on Vita. And Switch. And Mac, Linux, and even PS3 and Xbox 360 for giggles.

 

Although I might buy the Windows Edition. Eventually. My PC can evidently run it nice and stable at 60FPS on 1080P and mostly stable 30FPS on 4K. Ignis' recipes never looked tastier!

Grabbed Tokyo Xanadu eX+ since it's on sale. Now I think I just need the Utawareumonos and Demon Gaze II for PS4 RPGs from last year that I still intend to get eventually. 

Well there was YS VIII but decided to get that on Switch.

 

edit: Forgot .hack. I don't know why it annoys me that it only has one platinum even though I'm not a trophy hunter lol.

I enjoyed playing Pocket Pool with Deanna Troi when I was 13.   She was my first true love.  But then Xena came on at 11:00 and they would occasionally have to battle for my affections.

If a physical release is, indeed, contingent upon the game performing well... I don't have very high hopes. Niche fighting games are a tough sell to the casual gamer.

 

I really hope that it does make its way to discs, though. Fighting games are my favorite genre and I want to own as many of them as I can.
