That character may look like revived Arfoire from Rebirth 1 but it is not. She is called Chrome. Clearly a unique and separate character.

 

Also the goddesses lost their memories.

Hmm, I'm actually not sure what would count as a real Fate game.

 

There's been VNs (not localized), fighting games, RPGs and now action musous.

 

Personally, I think going back to RPGs would work quite nicely. (Just NOT the rock-paper-scissors thing from Extra...)

Wow. That might be the worst character intro in a fighting game I've ever seen. I've never watched DBS, but they couldn't have an intro that didn't look like it was pulled from a cheesy 80s romance movie?

Yeah, looks like the baddie from Neptunia MK2. And lol, Neptune loses her memory like every 3 weeks.

Game requires you to lose the memory of Neptune losing her memories, so you can enjoy its originality.

Yeah, poor phrasing. A real game, with some effort put into it, that uses the Fate setting. Fate/Unlimited is probably the only one I've seen that looks halfway decent, but that's pretty outdated and even for the time not particularly impressive nor does it at all seem to reflect the character abilities properly. Is there an RPG other than Fate/Grand Order (the mobile one?)

 

I'd welcome a good 2d fighter but honestly those are a pretty terrible way to translate a series to a video game simply because they're generally supposed to be completely balanced across the characters, which in most cases just doesn't work with the source material. Much as I liked Injustice 2, for example, having Catwoman kick Superman's ass just doesn't make sense. Or Krillin in DBZ Fighter beating down on Freiza.

 

A good story-driven action RPG would be ideal, to me.

I think we can just about close the book on God of War being hands down the best game of the year in 2018.  It's that good.  Even better if you have a decent 4K HDR setup.  I'm completely blown away.  It's a game changer on a few different  levels.  I never had anything but a passing interest in GoW until last weekend.

GOTY will probably come down to God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 for most. For me it will most likely be between God of War and Dragon Quest XI.

Yeah that's right.   So many good games this year.  Monster Hunter was exceptional, Ni no Kuni is jrpg goodness.  I'm really looking forward to RDR2 as well as that was one of my favorite games from the PS3 era.   Can't believe we have DQ11 coming too, good lord.   We are certainly in the golden era of PS4 gaming.  It doesn't get much better than this. 

 

Can't believe people want to talk about PS5 and stuff.  I hope it doesn't hit before 2020.  This generation is really hitting its stride now.

The second you stop being blown away by the visuals, GOW quickly turns into Uncharted with open world style fetch quests. I like it but it's not really something we haven't seen before. 

Holding out hope Read Dead lives up to the hype.

May PS+ Games

 

:ps4: Beyond: Two Souls

:ps4: Rayman Legends

:ps3: Risen 3: Titan Lords

:ps3: Eat Them!

:vita: King Oddball (Cross-Buy with :ps3: :ps4:)

:vita: Furmins

 

Nothing really thread related, but Risen is a german action RPG. The PS4 games are pretty decent too if you're into the genres and don't already own it.

 

 

May Amazon Prime Games:

 

Gone Home

Psychonauts

High Hell

I, Hope

Clustertruck

Titan Souls

 

This list isn't bad, but it's mostly indie games. Of course it uses the stupid twitch application to download and install them, but I don't believe you need the application to actually run the games. Psychonauts is a good platformer if you haven't played it in the thirteen or so years since it released.

I guess you could say most of the side quests are technically fetch quests but I certainly didn't feel like I was laboring through them as in something like Ni No Kuni 2. God of War doesn't reinvent the wheel but it does what it does very, very well outside of the collectibles which are a pain in the ass to find.

Oh man, how could I forget about Uncharted's robust combo system? :rofl:

 

Seriously, though, I have yet to be bored at all after 25-30 hours and I love exploring the game's environments.

Eh. RDR2 coming out this year is a bit iffy to me. I won't believe that until it happens.

 

We do still have the new Spiderman and Tomb Raider to look forward to, as well.

I just finished God of War last night, and thought it was really good.

 

The ending was a bit lacking for me though. I was expecting another boss fight or something, but instead you just get a cutscene (which is fine since you accomplished what you first set out to do)

 

If I had to describe my experience with the game it would be:

 

Beginning -> Oh my god, this game is amazing.

Halfway -> This game is still pretty cool.

3/4 in: I'm kinda getting tired of these fetch quests....Atreus is starting annoy the hell out of me (Story-wise, this is temporary btw).

Finale: Ok, this game is pretty cool again. Sequel when?

 

I'm guessing the ending is supposed to be this way so they can set up future sequels (I think i read somewhere that the Norse mythology stuff will be a trilogy)

 

Anyways, despite my minor complaints it was a great game. Definitely one of my considerations for GOTY as well.

My bet is on Spider-Man for GOTY. Everything about that game looks incredible. If they can pull off only a fraction of what those trailers show, it could be up there with the Batman/Arkham franchise.

Saw this posted on another forum, but it looks like Newegg may have potentially outed the release date for Shenmue I & II Collection:

 

https://www.newegg.c...N82E16879257154

 

Release Date: 6/26/2018

 

Obviously this could possibly be a mistake on their part, but it wouldn't surprise me if this ended up being accurate.

There's no way Spider-man's going to be GOTY. I'm planning on getting it, but it looks more like a step back to the God of War 1 & 2 era in terms of game play.
