Oh God my wallet is already crying from all the games I've pre-ordered. Recently decided I was going to try and play through my backlog but l o l that is not getting done anytime soon. I can't even remember all the games I've pre-ordered. The one I'm most excited for though is Fist Of the North Star that wins out all

The end of the year and the first few months of next year are so insanely packed, no chance I will get everything I want. Forget the money part of it, not enough time in the day lol.

Yeah, some games I'm interested in won't be bought at launch simply due to lack of time and I normally don't even work 40 hours a week or have a family to deal with. Valkyria Chronicles 4 is one that I'll most likely be waiting on but probably would have bought day one if it released during a slower time. I would love to see more major releases scheduled during the June-August window.

You can't really be surprised. Look at the amount of shit Disney owns at this point. They could've just released this game in $20 starter packs with different worlds on each at this point.

There's nothing wrong with DLC inherently. If the base game feels like a complete experience and they offer more content afterward, great! The thing that bugs me (and I don't get the feeling this is exclusive to me) is when content was cut to be released separately (i.e. the ending of Asura's Wrath), already on the disc (i.e. Bioshock 2), or finds some other way to devalue the base game. Aesthetics and content that's truly additional are 100% fine by me.

True but those two and Rainbow Skies the only things really of note that I can think of that release from now until the end of August and Yakuza Kiwami 2.

 

 

 

 

Really hope people will only be able to use their creations in player matches online.

In addition, I'm sure they looked at how the DLC for FFXV sold (I'm assuming well above their expectations) and planned as such for KH3.

Muv-Luv Alternative is the highest rated visual novel on VNDB and has been for years (above Steins;Gate). The less you know going in the better, but if you're a fan of the visual novel genre it's really a must-play kind of thing.

There's nothing wrong with DLC inherently, I just basically don't buy any of it. :razz:

 

Never cared for it; never felt the need to buy any.  There's maybe one game a year where I'll buy the additional content, and that's more "games-as-a-service" type stuff.  Whatever my mainstay is, like Destiny or FF14.  As far as other games go I play them to completion and then I'm finished.  When I'm done, I'm done.  I rarely go back for more content later.  You also don't get good value per dollar spent.  Even the games I loved, especially the ones I platinum or 100%, I've never felt the need to buy the DLC.  Zelda: BotW, Mariokart, Horizon, Bloodborne, never bought DLC for any of them. 

 

The feeling of finality is a good thing. It's hard enough to see a long game through to the end.

I don't mind DLC after the fact....like later on some stories want to be told or something, but not when they feel like unlockable extras (like items or costumes), cut from the game, or just random junk (extra music in a game....not rhythm). Short missions providing an hour or 2 of extra content are also no nos for me.

 

Something like what was considered expansions before, such as the DLC for Witcher 3, or some Bloodborne DLC, are good in my eyes. I do like feeling complete games, and I hope RDR 2 doesn't feel cut up cause of bogus DLC practices.

Yeah, I believe VGP in Canada had one a few weeks back, not sure if it sold out or not.

Deciding there will be dlc before you even release the game when it's been in development for this long is a no-no to me.

Yep.  I used to get mad about DLC, now I simply don't care that much.

 

I'd much rather a developer come out and say "our game is awesome, it's huge, and it's going to be valued at $100", and then put the entire game on the disc.  Sell me a complete game.

 

I have no issue with spending more for truly great gaming experiences.  But I don't like being nickle and dimed.   Alas, that is never going to happen because customers can't get over the mental hurdle of games costing a max of $59.99.  So developers have found ways to circumvent that.

Is it the kind of thing where I can just buy muv luv alternative or should I buy both? Is there a specific playing order?

Why is the physical for muvluv $10 more? Anyway I'll wait for a sale. Or just get it on pc. Though I do like playing vn's in bed.

minor spoilers 

 

 

been awhile since i played it but muv luv the first game was just learning about all the people in the game the girls that like him and his school life. truthfully playing blind at the time it bored me to tears thinking it was to pg, the second game thu epic and was worth it.  

 

 

not sure if muv luv alternative will be as impact full not knowing events from first game since it fleshed out the people and added to it least my PoV i think it worth your money getting the set.

Is that a euphemism?

 

Seriously though, the Steam Link Android app seems to work pretty well with VN's. I was playing Princess Evangile on my phone just last night. Not much different than playing on a vita, particularly if you have one of those fancy Bluetooth controllers with the phone mount.

I really don't feel like I've played an incomplete game (except maybe MGS 5) so I am fine with the current DLC practices. Let me choose whether or not I want more of a game instead of the only options being spending $80-$100 to get everything or waiting for the "complete edition" to go on sale.
