Nice. I wonder if it's gonna stay ps4 exclusive when it comes west or if it'll hit steam too.

 

Funny it's prime day and the best sale was at target.

 

Also it's page 500!

I feel like this is fairly under-the-radar, but this is Platinum's upcoming game and Granblue is getting pretty big in Japan. I'm pretty excited for this.


How do you mean? in general or in here? Cause in here, it's really not lol. Everyone has been pretty stoked after seeing gameplay

Yeah I honestly have no idea what Granblue is really but I want every platinum game that wasn't made on like a $3 budget.

I can't wait to play Yakuza 3 unbutchered if it is localized (likely will be I'm guessing). I thought the Yakuza 3 story was pretty aight. I am also excited for Granblue Fantasy.

 

Also in other news I finished Hapymaher and will have a write up some time this weekend on my thoughts. I liked it enough, though it was missing something as well.

 

Working on Evenicle now. Pretty fun game though battles are a tinge repetitive. That's pretty much any RPG though hah.

is sad that arc the lad isn't coming back to consoles.  But I will take what I can get.  Never expected that series to return.

My big thing is they really need to keep publishing Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 physically.  I'm worried that physical collectors might miss one or two PS4 entries if they stop selling well-enough.  That would be a damn shame.

I could see that. I'm slowly transitioning to the being OK with digital, but strongly prefer physical copies. I do hope it keeps selling well like Yakuza 0/6 did. We'll just wait and see.

Ya know, with our luck Yakuza 3 and 4 remasters won't do so hot and then 5 will be digital only. Again.

Yep, $10 for 10 plats, $2.50 for 25 golds, $1 for 100 silvers. There's a yearly cap of 12 passes for the rewards (not sure if that's each or total for the 3 types), but you just go to your account, sign, then at the top right it says "Track your pass activity" with a See my passes link underneath. If you haven't already activated the passes you'll have one for platinum trophies, gold trophies, and silver trophies under the Available tab, otherwise they'll be under In Progress for your current pass or under Completed for any sets you've already finished. As you get the rewards you'll just get points added to your Sony Rewards account. So far I've gotten $34.50 worth of points from trophies, which I've turned into $30 PSN credit.

 

 

Does your progress reset every year or does it stay that way until you reach the goal?

Yeah, that's what I mean.  Which would be completely pointless.  Everyone already got Yakuza 5 for free on PS+ digitally.

Dunno. The program hasn't been running a year yet nor have I hit a cap. I'm also not sure if it's per calendar year (resetting on 1/1/2019) or if the timing works in some other fashion.

I mean, it's bound to be trash, but it's gotta be better than End of Darkness, right?  Surely they can clear that hurdle.

$15 for first week sale. I might double dip. Didn't beat it on vita yet. Ended up stopping after getting Kaguya. There hasn't been any announcements about the 2nd game getting localized right? And if we will also get the PS4 enhanced version bundled with it?

Nothing official on localizing the 2nd game. I'll most likely get this PC version since the Vita version still costs around $50+

You wrote "Little Tail Bronx"; I read "Little Bronx Tale". Thought it would be a game about a young Sonny before he went to jail. Sadly, it's not, and now I'm bummed. 

I have only myself to blame.

Hoping they actually attempt to make Pichu viable in this game. In Melee it felt like there was no reason to play him. It just felt like a handicap, and even if you're not playing competitively, he just wasn't an appealing character.

I always found Pichu so adorable and thought it was neat he was added in Melee but I never expected him to come back. I'm not sure how viable they'll make him in Ultimate but what I would really love to see is if Sakurai does to Pichu what he did with Bowser Jr. and how he made the Koopa Kids be alternate skins. So it's not just Pichu but Plusle, Minun, Pachirisu, Emolga, Dedenne, and Togedemaru.

Can it be Mimikyu too, or should that be a Pikachu skin
