Properties like Gungrave are always weird to me.   I watched all of Gungrave several years ago, and have watched enough anime over the years, but I also haven't seen MOST anime.  It's weird to me when they turn these minor shows that 99% of people haven't seen into video games.  Seeing the show would never make me want to play a video game about it either; the second half of the series was atrocious, after a solid first half pre-story.  I guess it's only VR though. so you might as well attach a little brand name recognition to it.

Gungrave is actually a show based on a video game. The second half of the TV series is an adaptation of the the part of the story you play through, which is probably why you felt it sucked.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I bought Gungrave on PS2 like 15 years ago.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeyyy some decent surprises this E3. Though everyone was expecting a Vesperia remaster, I'm happy it's going to be for PC and all. And that makes the Switch's first Tales game right? I wonder if Hearts R is going to get ported over along with Tales of Innocence - a game we never got here in the US (if I'm not mistaken there are three games that are interconnected sorta that were for the DS and got redone for Vita?). 

Innocence tempest and hearts released on the ds originally and were all considered mothership titles (despite being outsourced for the first 2)

hearts was one of the last tales of game made by tales studio iirc as they closed it and absorbed some of the staff back into bamco.

 

They were intending to remake all 3 of them and connect them via the triverse gate dungeon which characters in each world who were new party members are from and are stealing tech and shit from each of the worlds.  Gallando from hearts r and QQ from innocence are 2 of them.  They cancelled tempest r though because lol vita.  There just wern't enough fans of the series that owned a vita in japan.  The games bombed super super bad there and had worst sales for any game in the series.  Even na average sales numbers are better than what the games sold in japan.  Sadly they never confirmed hearts r's sales numbers for na as it would have been nice to hear how well it did.  

 

If bamco had any sense they would have ported the games to ps3, pc and ps4 or 3ds considering they would have sold significantly higher if they had.  At the very least they could have sold 200k in japan alone.

 

Also new fire emblem yes.

 

Day 1 CE for Fire Emblem. Just hope that Three Houses doesnt mean 3 releases

Also hoping we get another 3DS Echoes game

Yeah I hope they don't do that pokemon shit ever again.

 

I certainly would love another echoes game considering how we are missing like almost half the games in the series.

 

I don't think they would do a triple release though unless they intend to repeat fates plot and have some royal under king swordwhip be the one you play as for that side.

 

I would have assumed it was another blazing blade/radiant dawn and will have 3 lord protagonists each with their own sections.


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

One thing has aroused my suspicions and is causing concern: the title Fire Emblem: Three Houses.  There had better not be three versions of this game....   I'm going to be very displeased if they start treating this series like Pokemon, and the previous Fire Emblem Fates. I really don't like that Nintendo way of monetizing their games; just skin it differently and change a few things. Let's hope that our suspicions are incorrect.

 

I'm assuming that this is the Switch main line Fire Emblem game that was suppose to come out in 2018, but now it got delayed to 2019. 

yeah lets hope you are right.  If they do the pokemon shit again like fates at least I can just pick the 1 good entry to play and ignore the other 2 again.

It was actually my "most wanted" title for this years E3, but I figured it was to good to be true. As anything Star Fox is doomed to be a low priority project to anyone at "N", sadly :wall:

Nice! That Extella Link CE is so damn tempting.....but I have no idea how to play mahjong, and I don't think I'd ever play it with anyone so that set would probably sit in storage somewhere... :(

 

 

Also, the Resident Evil 2 Remake looks SO DAMN GOOD! That game is probably my most hyped title from E3, I remember playing through the original 2 so many times.

Yeah, RE2 was probably my favorite until RE4 came along, and this remake looks damn cool. I'll for sure get it at some point down the road.

6 wasn't localized.  It was fantranslated though which is how I imagine all of us here played it.  I definitely agree that game would greatly benefit from a remake.   I dunno about 7 though.  It was pretty good as is.

It was 13580 + 3120 JPY, so ~$151 shipped. Amiami (and Amazon.co.jp) still has it in stock, and the Vita version is about $20 cheaper. Amiami offering DHL shipping saved my butt, cause SAL Parcel was 5900.

To be fair, Chinese and Taiwanese mahjong are much easier to learn. Riichi is much, much more complicated. I have a Chinese set, but I typically avoid physical Riichi because I have never not messed up the scoring.

Totally agree on Fe6 remake, the game needs polish on many aspects such as Roy being shitty lord+ super late promo, rogue promo, divine weapons and true ending requirements. Also alot of characters are just poorly written.

eh most lords are garbage so this is nothing new.  Worst things had to be recruiting the archer lord while protecting the green units and villagers the one map.  The recruitment of percival being the most hair pulling nightmare.  If you didn't have to use a dancer to do it then it might not have been as horrible.  And yeah Fuck whoever came up with the true ending bs.

Guess you won't be buying the game. Tira appears too late in the SC timeline to be included in the reboot of SC6.
The reason Zasalamel is in the roster is due to his ressurection powers, which can place him in past events prior to SC3 while keeping his familiar appearance.

Roy is locked as 5 move sword user with 6 con, not many lords are treated this badly, and there are games like Ike emblem or sigurd emblem out there.
