In Topic: Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

27 January 2022 - 06:17 AM

Then why the hell nothing isnt showing on brickseek for tales but I go in the store and it scans for $37 on walmart app.

The app just shows you the price on the walmart website now. They killed the price scanning feature in the app to lock it behind walmart+ iirc, though I would never pay for + so I have no idea if it actually works properly there. Maybe someone else does.

 

But I will put it like this to get the point across: I bought Transformers Battlegrounds (PS4) on clearance today for $8 at my walmart. If I scan the barcode with the app it shows up for $26.00. If you check the price on the walmart website it shows up for $26.00. I paid $8 for it I assure you.

 

Same concept with Tales, if you go to the walmart website it'll show PS4 and PS5 copies are $37 and some change. If I scan the barcode of my own copy of Tales it shows up for $37. The game is not $37 at my store though, it's normal priced.

I've been pretty obsessed with both Judgment games the past few months myself (hence the avatar change.) I really like true crime stuff irl but most games that actually cover these topics are adventure games. Which is fine, I've said before I am a big fan of like Ace Attorney and anything in that vein, but, I prefer action games in general. So having that story of tracking down a serial killer but in the wrapper of a Yakuza game just hits this perfect combination for me in a way I kinda never thought a game could. I mean I typically try not to play similar types of games back to back but I basically 100%'d Judgment and then went straight into Lost Judgment and did the same there.

 

Also helps that I think they really perfected their beat 'em up combat here. I thought Yakuza Kiwami 2 (and I assume 6 as it looks the same, I am just not there yet) was a massive step down in terms of gameplay so seeing them go back more in the direction of Kiwami/0 with stances and adding the fun wall jumps and sliding mechanics really grabbed me. And while I know going for higher difficulties isn't for everyone I love how they handled Legend in Judgment, disables auto saving so you have to take the long battles and consecutive fights a lot more seriously.

 

Lost Judgment on the other hand lol, they added so many new mechanics to the game that it's a complete cakewalk. Like I think it's generally more fun to play because of the new mechanics but I died like twice total, and neither of those were on Legend difficulty lol. But dang I can't lie having a real juggle system in a Yakuza game is super slick and you can get into some really fun combo stuff I never expected out of a game in this series.

How do people have time to play the bad games like Godfall while I can't even make it through my backlog of good games across all systems. Is there some hyperbolic time chamber I don't know about? I don't even care about achievements or trophies...just beating the base campaigns.

Because the game is totally fine, I put about 50 hours into it and enjoyed most of the experience. People have different tastes in things, I could make the same dumb comment about anyone who bought Far Cry 6 or is going to play Halo soon or insert whatever game you want here.

As someone who actually did do everything in Godfall (before the expansion, haven't bought it yet) this is weird. Because yes, the actual story is very boring and it's one of those games where it doesn't feel like the game begins until endgame. But what makes it weird is that it's not like you're not going to be doing the story content. Dreamstones (one of the included endgame activities) is literally just a high/max level version of the story missions, just without the actual story. You play through every single mission but there are modifiers and such to shake up the experience each run, if you've played any loot game ever you know exactly the kind of stuff I am talking about.

 

So content-wise you appear to be getting the full game with all the levels and bosses and such, you're just not getting all the cutscenes and dialogue.

 

I don't get it. Usually when a game gets chopped up they give you the boring intro stuff and ask you to pay for the rest, not the complete opposite of that.

Maxing bond skills was a pretty dumb grind. I ended up just farming the Raja Naga side boss on Merciless to get it done.

 

Also yeah, Zenkichi was actually my favorite part of the game. His persona awakening scene is honestly one of my favorites in the whole series.
