Re: Octopath Traveler

Pretty fun. Pretty much liked everything except:

1. Random battles, especially when mixed with...
2. the maps having a lot of hard-to-see paths that cause you to walk more than you'd like.

Combined, it was starting to annoy me.

Really really really reminds me a lot of Seiken Densetsu 3, which had 6 characters and 3 intertwined storylines.

Looking forward to the full game.

I'd only be excited for a Sonic movie if it were based on the '90s animated series (the darker SatAM one) with Jaleel White voicing him.

Yeah, the extreme Depth of Field effect is really annoying when you pair it with the games random encounter rate. The rate is a bit too high and will definitely get on my nerves. Especially with how many little short paths they have to random chests all over the damned place. They're easily the worst things about the game thus far.

Ys VIII hasn't received a price drop and is falling in and out of stock at various places. I finally caved and bought the CE from NISA.

  

Ys VIII is really annoying. It won't stop being $60.

  

Hmm ok...I think I'll just go ahead and order the standard switch edition of Ys VIII. Thanks for the input.


The Switch version launches on 6/26. No surprise that it hasn't had a price drop yet. Question is whether there's enough stock across PS4 and Switch to last enough for retailers to drop prices.

I would also add that I think they go a bit far with the old timey talk, reads a bit weird to me at times. Still day one for me though.

I thought they already released a Definitive Experience for Metal Gear Solid V? Like is this just a price cut or a better definitive edition than the one already out?

There's already a definitive edition with all the DLC out like the Quiet package, don't think any new DLC has been released since then so it's likely the same edition. Don't remember where I read this, but someone mentioned the significance of this listing isn't that it's a new version, rather that they slapped the Playstation Hits label on it, which the US doesn't have, but places like Europe does. Kinda like those red labeled Greatest Hits versions the PS3 got, which is essentially a reprint of the same version.

nice to have the dmc 5 confirmation. 

 

Tales of wise I guess no news is good news.  Most people already knew they wouldn't be announcing anything until at least next year since development is about 2-3 years between console gens and we are due for a new engine again after 4 games using xillias graphics engine, monster animations ect.  Whatever the new game is it will be the first ps4/switch/pc and such game developed for those in mind where as zesty and berseria were all developed for the ps3 first and in the formers case it didn't get a ps4 version until after it was localized.

 

It's a shame people got their hearts set on legendia r over nothing.  I do want a legendia r myself though.  And a sequel taking place in the mainland.  Hell they could throw another sequel for the ferines considering they live in the ocean and our blue is like 90% water.

Has anything been said in regards to 4K/HDR support for Tales of Vesperia on Xbox One X? Can't decide what platform I want to buy it on. If there's no 4K support I'd rather buy it on the Switch.

A character named Nelke in Atelier Firis was translated as Nerke so don't get too comfy with that name. Then again they changed translation companies.

I love Steins Gate but have mixed feelings on this one.  I really want to get it but don't feel like I will be missing much if I don't.  Although the bonus famicom 8-bit style does intrigue me.

It's being run by a separate company from Gust, so it's probably going to stay there like Atelier Quest Board and all the alarm clock apps.
