I wonder how they would handle the controllers, especially when it comes to the VMU...

 

I think Sega have been preparing for this for a while now:

They have figured out how to box up and sell all sorts of vg nostalgia now.

Thanks! Don't know if it will be worth getting, but placed an order just in case (though I imagine this will be available in larger quantities then Nintendo's classics)

I guess I'm alone in hoping the PS classic will flop hard. No analog sticks, just the original crappy controllers. Also, Sony could have added PS1 backwards compatibility to the PS4 easy (just like literally every single PS2 and PS3 model). 

 

Finally, a lot of these early polygon games.... they haven't aged too well compared to pixel art.

I just realized the Playstation Classic doesn't even come with an AC adapter. Uhh.....what? At $100 you'd think it would come with everything needed.

 

I'm sure I can plug the USB into a suitable power source, but still....this seems pretty dumb.

So I've been playing DQ11.  My IRL nickname is "Kai" and my main char in DQ is named Kai.   It's quick and easy, whatever.   But the game really threw me for a loop when I got to the main story section with the Kai NPC.  Suddenly all the voiced party members started saying my character's name with their voice actors.  Kai this, and Kai that.  At first I was like no way!, they figured out how to do some sort of text-to-voice thing with your MC name.  maybe.   Or maybe not...  2min. later: Oh there is another npc named Kai we're talking about here.  But it really screwed with me for a few minutes. 

 

Anyways, I'm playing DQ11 and loving it so far.  I'm about 37 hours into it.  One of my favorite parts of the game is scouring the world and monsters for ingredients to craft yourself new weapons and armor.   Although the crafting process is rather simplistic, it's still very satisfying!  I love all the hidden recipes and world exploration.

Huh, there sure are a lot of Utawarerumono collaborations going on in Japan lately. I have never really heard much about its popularity in the east, but from how much cross-promotion they're doing, so I have to imagine it's rather significant. I guess I shouldn't be surprised since they have almost half a dozen Utawarerumono games in the works for various genres.

 

 

Well, I was hoping to write a post about Dragon Quest XI since there are a lot of minor things that did bug me here and there. However since CrossCode releases in about two hours, I don't think I'll get around to that. Like I've mentioned before though, the game really only bugs me with its battle speed, where it feels like animations are running at 50% speed. There's still plenty I think that could be improved on or did differently and I still haven't touched the post-game content in it. Maybe I'll still get around to it after CrossCode, maybe not. Though I think I'll probably end up writing one about CrossCode.

That was the first thing I spotted. Not sure how they can leave out the AC adapter...

 

I picked up the NES Classic, but will likely skip on this one. I'd be all over a Dreamcast Classic though, never had the system back in the day.

Just to clarify--the price has NOT been adjusted to $99 normally, it's a promo price that's been live for a while that ends on Sept. 25th.

The fear of DoA6 jiggles is gone. Some new gameplay footage has them bouncing almost as wild as Age Setting to 99.

Can you link the footage... for science?

I also wonder why they don't just do the 99 age setting, again. Seemed like a pretty good way to cover all bases. Set standard to realistic and the option to turn it up to classic DoA jiggles. Everybody happy!

I'll probably get Vesperia for the PS4 when the price drops to $30. The game might not sell well since it's on all platforms and for sure ps4 and switch copies will sell more. Switch version will probably stay higher for cartridge reasons. Also getting games release date always have bugs and glitches. I'll wait maybe half a year to a year to get it.
