I've been avoiding FF XV because of all this extra content... I might consider Royal Edition (as it's a black friday special everywhere this year).

 

Worth giving this a try, or would I be disappointed after playing Persona 5, DQ11, YsVIII, and Tales of Beseria?

If you like Tales and Dragon Quest I can't imagine any game disappointing you.

 

YS 8 is back in stock at Best Buy - https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=5794500

Does this mean the Royal Edition is now truly the complete edition now? Or it won't includes the upcoming unreleased dlc?

Funny, the first thing that always comes to mind for me is baseball.

Damn. I was looking forward to the second set of Final Fantasy XV character episodes. It's nice Ardyn's is still going to happen, but I was more interested in Aranea's and Luna's.

And it was announced during the anniversary stream? What a bummer for anyone tuning in hoping to get hyped for the new season. It makes me think of a scene from the movie Velvet Goldmine.

The falcom news is great. I love their games. Hopefully we get a worldwide launch for Ys so we don't  have to wait for another poor translation.

 

I find it problematic that nintendo would remove native american representation in gaming, it's like they're whitewashing history.

They're removing insensitive representation of native americans in the game. Not sure how you arrived to that conclusion from the article.

It's almost like they should have made a complete JRPG from the start, and then considered expanding the story with more content or new media types if it warranted it later on (like FF7 did). Even after waiting ages for the PC version, I had resigned myself to wait until the end of 2019--and then go on a fucking scavenger hunt for all of the disparate content--before touching that game so I can experience the complete thing. I absolutely loathe what SE did with XV.

 

And, since I'm bitching about SE, most of the main story beats of XIII-2 came out of NOWHERE compared to the original XIII. It's a better game, but man the decision to connect them like that was financially driven and very thinly veiled, at that. And, uh, the shipping prices at their store sucks. Oh, and DQ XI having midi music is ludicrous (thank god for PC mods). Okay, I'm done, carry on.

Is this suppose to be a burn towards me? I can think of a lot of disappointing games, including FFXIII. I just want to know if FFXV is worth trying, waiting for completion, or passing on.

Aghhhhh. No more Episode Aranea..... :(

 

I'm guessing the Alternate Ending to the game is dead too. Damn, and here I was hoping they would change that ending to something that wasn't dumb. Well, guess not.

I'm just picking up vanilla FFXV for $5 instead of dealing with the DLC. I'm not a completionist and I don't think the DLC affects the main story. I think there is one where you can get to the ending faster but nothing that appends the story.

I think the main argument for the necessity of the DLC and additional, non-game content is how much world building, back story, character development, ending explanation, etc the vanilla game doesn't have. Just buying the XV game is far from the complete story, and that's a shame.

I just noticed that BestBuy has the PS4 version of Ys VIII back in stock but it's now the standard version and not the Day One Edition. The Switch version has changed to standard edition as well.

2B looks awesome in Soul Calibur VI. They worked in so much of what she does in Nier: Automata. And I love all the characters going around in the stage's background. They're putting a lot of thought into her.

I'm going to buy the game on Black Friday. It seems like everyone is going to have it for $35. Then maybe a 20% PSN discount will knock the season pass down to $24. I pondered getting only 2B, but even if I'm not thrilled by the other dlc characters I think I'm going to want the two dlc customization packs. Create A Soul looks fun. It has an ogre mask, so I'm at least going to make Murakumo from Senran Kagura.

I've been replaying Nier: Automata, but I think I'll switch to The Witcher 3. That way I'll be able to appreciate it if Namco gave just as much effort to Geralt.

I hope one of them is the remake of Ys V. 

Is it weird that Falcom is the only company I actually look forward to remakes out of?

Y'know what's problematic? Replacing native americans with cowboys.

There was nothing wrong with Bravely defaults native american portrayal but I guess it's better to pretend they never existed.

Pocahontas will never get into kingdom hearts 3 at this rate.

However, it seems that after Sony’s crackdown on the types of games published on their platform there will be some changes made to PS4 versions revealed by the publisher. These changes include changes to event scenes and removal of illustrations that show the girls in suggestive positions. In both titles, 2 CG scenes in both titles have been modified to release on the console. Idea Factory International is being completely transparent about the alterations needed to be implemented for the game to be released on the PlayStation platform.

Tired of this censorship bull. Still Dragon Star is one of my more wanted RPGs....so I'll get that at least. Just noticed Date a Live is some visual novels....so yeah that's a must buy too.

Be the hero, Nintendo.

 

I have a few questions about Date A Live. It's also an anime, yea? Did it start as a game? Is the game high on date sim elements?

 

Unsure if this is something I'd be interested in.

Date a Live is going to be uncensored on the PC though, so just skip the console version if you want it. Being a LN I can't imagine the system requirements are very steep.

 

Does this mean the Royal Edition is now truly the complete edition now? Or it won't includes the upcoming unreleased dlc?

It should be as complete as you can get though. I doubt even SE would release another retail product just to add a single piece of DLC...

So in other words, they will now take even longer to offer up newer versions of current popular IP's. So they have spent tons of time and resources offering old titles "new" again on the NS & 3DS, and now the plan is to add more to older titles at a cost? Any plans for actual new games, or has this company just jumped on the assbackwards train with no signs of getting back on track?
