Granblue Fantasy Re Link is the game we all need.

 

 

I'm glad an English version has already been confirmed. Day 1

This looks interesting. A PS4 exclusive (allegedly though may be also on PC).

 

Admit it looks good though it screams JRPG in the more conventional ways. That said, what strikes my fancy is that it's Platinum Games. Honestly, but for that brand on this title I'd be a lot less intrigued.

A Vtuber has already played through nearly 6 hours of Super Neptunia RPG. Only a couple CGs are seen, but the early Neptune with a stick scene is untouched despite the Japanese product page cropping out a panty shot.

Did you actually watch this whole thing? I don’t know who does that, if I had six hours to spare, I’d rather be playing a game myself. Instead I’m stuck trying to finish work before the holidays.

Did Play-Asia remove the ability to apply discount codes? I don't see the option now when trying to place an order.

They did for their Play-Asia exclusives, though I haven't tried buying any of their non-exclusives with a coupon code lately, so they may have removed it from non-exclusive game orders as well.

That would be odd because someone I follow on Youtube started advertising with his own coupon code just last week.

That game definitely looks like it is not for me.  Also the constant noise is god damn annoying as hell.  Did they really think it was necessary for neptune to make a noise every time she jumps and crap in a game with what looks to be heavy platforming?

Must be nice to have not hit the age where you make a noise every time you jump. Or move.

Edit: There was an old Welcome Back Kotter bit I was hoping to find but I couldn't. It was Mr. Kotter sitting down and going "Oahy... that's my father's noise. I'm making the same sounds he used to make."

So figured this would be the best place to ask.

I wanna start playing the Atelier games again as I know I loved them in the PS2/3 days when they had the cool collector's edition version.

Do all the games have the time limits and what are those like. You have to race and do everything or its not that bad.

 

Also, should I start with the switch version Atelier Lydie and Suelle? or go old skool with the oG three they just released on switch for digital release.

 

Any help would be awesome. Also, what are some other world-building games kinda like these on switch?

Thinking of getting Lil Dragons cafe too

I was very disappointed with Dragon Cafe, couldn’t play more then ten hours.

The Rorona trilogy has doable but somewhat tight deadlines. It’s probably the most controversial set, because it’s pretty much impossible to see all the events without a guide, and some people don’t like the deadlines at all. I personally enjoyed it though.

The atelier series removed the deadlines during the dusk trilogy, and I found those games quite dull. In the first one, I constantly found myself sleeping for weeks to advance the story after easily completing the bingo board of challenges with time to kill, so it’s just as well they removed it.

The mystery trilogy brought back the deadlines in the second game (Faris) but it’s quite generous and allows infinite free time after finishing the first half. Sophie was ok, but I found Faris to be a great revival of the series and am looking forward to L&S.

I have them all on PS, so I can’t speak to the switch versions, but these games aren’t too demanding so I would expect the switch to handle them fine.

Thanks for the input.

I have too many games on the console right now (Subnautica, Fallout 76, Red Dead 2, Assassin's Creed and Fortnite.

But I am looking for games to play on my switch beside like Zelda and Pokemon.

I want more world building games on my switch and wanted to try the Dragons Cafe and Atelier series.

Lydelle and Suelle is the only switch physical release. I think I will get that as I do not like strict timelines as I like to explore and see the world.

L&S is a good choice. Even though it's the third in the Mysterious series, the story isn't connected to any other game's plots. The previous characters trickle in and you see some resolutions to their stories, but it's told from the point of view of the twins.

Though you have to lower expectations as the later ateliers lack english voice work.  Granted its not like the games had much to begin with.

The Asian-English Vita copy is already ridiculously hard to find and expensive, so it will be interesting to see what happens there.

Oh I own that one.  How much is it going for? Not that I would part with it.  I seem to have a habit of buying games that end up really rare and expensive. like the 7 .hack titles or suikoden 2.

Recently about $80-$100, but a lot of the sales were from Singapore/Malaysia and people are usually willing to pay a little more of a premium when something is shipped from the US (lower wait time, better tracking, etc.).
