Lingering reminders of when Atlus USA used to make great first print bonuses.

 

Anyone else still have theirs?

No More Heroes 3 is such a huge thing for me. Really glad Travis is coming back. Astral Chain looked awesome, too. And that Banjo trailer made me feel like a kid again.

Yeah, FF7 gameplay is a hard pass for me. That boss battle demo was horrible. I didn't mind long boss battles in a JRPG because it's about moves, but I don't want to have to be micro managing meters while dodging and switching characters for 20 minutes at a time. It's all meant to look really cool, but looks a tedious nightmare to manage. 

At least they got Tifa's look down perfectly.

Nah, I'll watch you complain about Sony not stopping Disney and Nickelodeon instead, because that's totally not a false equivalence.

 

Not stopping Disney? I'm saying that our societal outrage over sexuality is full of obscene double standards. The entirety of our popular culture is so ingrained with violence that we can elevate things like Mortal Kombat and The Last of Us as a proper representation for video games but anything that deviates from a puritan approach to sexuality is looked down upon immediately. We groom our children with suggestive programming, outrageous pop icons, and sexualized preteen social media influencers and still chastise niche creators for not adhering to our preposterous entertainment standards. It's an incredibly slippery slope that I don't want anyone to take part in.

Oh nice, watch me contribute literally nothing to any conversation ever but still act like I'm above it all when I complain about something I don't want to read about.

Death Stranding gameplay looks like shit. How is that already coming out in November? Looks like it needs a lot more dev time. Cutscenes and character design all look incredible, but the parts where you're actually in control seem awful.

I got in to the Nioh demo, but don't have my PS4. If someone wants my code it's here:

#14160410 Expired: Best Buy - FREE PlayStation Classic w/PS4 Pro ($399)

Posted by The Dead Texan on 30 April 2019 - 01:54 AM

I suppose I don't understand the sheer hatred. If you need a pspro it's a good deal because it's free, I guess I can't find it in myself to complain about something I'm not paying for.

 

I mean I get it, it's the cool thing to do to hate the ps classic because everyone else is doing it. But mine still did its job, it itched my playstation nostalgia itch. I wish it had some better games but it still wasn't that bad to me. Besides everytime someone has to rag on it for no reason at all it decreases the chances Sony will learn from their mistakes and release another one with better games and increases the chances they won't ever attempt it again.

 

But i guess this is the internet after all and getting a cheap sense of self satisfaction at jumping on a hate bandwagon for a bunch of random people online is par for the course.

 

Can you tell Sony to stop censoring games and stop making shitty movie games next time you're at the shareholders meeting?

I like all the new animations and stuff, but it's still too long of a game to go back to for marginal improvements. The game already gives you so many different ways to be stupidly overpowered, what QOL changes could they possibly add to make it feel new? 

 

If the P5S announcement tomorrow is just a vanilla serving of P5 for Switch, then that's an even harder pass for me. Just give us all the Kawakami VR experience we're aching for and be done with it.

I leave for Japan in a couple of weeks, so I'm trying to bulldoze my way through as much as the CCC event in FGO as possible. Got Melt and Lip in 30 tickets, so I'm happy about that.

I'd like Skyward Sword on the Switch.  I never played it and I can't go back to Wii graphics. 

 

Graphically, the game holds up well enough. The actual game part of it is where it has all the appeal of a dried out turd. 

 

I'm glad P5 is gonna be on the Switch, but if it's not the Royale version with cheese, then I probably won't double dip.

For those that missed out on the P3D/P5D Vita deluxe edition w/4CD sale at Play-Asia last month, Amazon Japan has the set for 4196 yen (shipped by Amazon Japan).

Bought it on 3/15 for 3519 yen and it arrived today - very nice set. Comes with DLC in the package and additional DLC from Amazon Japan via email.

I spent more money at Amazon Japan this year than I have at Amazon US. Lol

 

Thanks a bunch. Been waiting on the deep discount on this. Plus it's the only way to get physical copies of the Vita version. 

 

 

I guess my fears weren't warranted . Catherine is now available for pre-order on Best Buy (for the some of us that still got GCU):

 

Premium

 

Launch

 

I'm not one of those OMGSTEELBOOK people, but that is seriously one gorgeous case. Might pre-order just until I know for sure if it's not localized by California. 




#14143129 Sekiro Collectors Edition back up for pre-order at Gamestop

It looks interesting, and despite my avatar, I am just absolutely fucking sick of these games already. I'll probably play it some day after Black Friday, but I just can't force myself into yet another fucking Fromsoft game. Enough's enough.

yay defeated lucifer.  Almost done with smt 4 I hope.  Put over 100 hours into it and I want it to be over by now.  maybe next year I will play p5 but certainly not for a long time.  I play 1 smt/persona/atlus title a year because of how tiring they can be.

 

Surprised you made it that far. Couldn't make it past 20 or 30 hours after losing total interest. It's not a terrible game, it's just not a very engaging one. I hear Apocalypse is way better, but I never tried it. If you ever get around to playing P5 it'll at least be a more relaxing experience. There's no real frustration to be found outside of some particularly tedious late-game dungeon mechanics. 

 

Nocturne is a high point for the PS2-era of Atlus games. Digital Devil Saga is probably still my favorite of the bunch.
