I just wish they would stop having physical and digital be two different versions.

Akiba's Trip

Deception IV

Suikoden I-IV

The Last Remnant

The Liar and the Blind Prince

Akiba's Trip (say it fast) is a bit of a love letter to otaku culture. The gameplay mechanic of having to rip off people's clothes is interesting, but it does get super repetitious. Many of the characters are standard anime archetypes.

 

Deception IV follows the previous games motif of "IT'S JUST A GIRL WAIT WHY AM I DYING?" but with more fanservice-y things. Setting up traps and killing people via combos is interesting, but I think the older games are better.

 

Suikoden 1 is great. 2 improves over it and continues the overall story. 3 is a "sidestory" in the grand scheme of thing and is very different than 1&2 in regards to the gameplay (instead of commanding 6 independent people, you command 3 2-person squads). 4 is easily the weakest in the series with a meh story and annoying gameplay mechanics.

 

Last Remnant is a kicking rad game that will not explain about 70% of the mechanics, and that's okay if you're just going to go through the main story. If you want to tackle the optional bosses then you need to do some research. I will say that grinding should be heavily discouraged, and leveling up not only makes enemies stronger/changes what you fight, but it also changes items you find so you can lock yourself out of upgrade materials.

 

The Liar and the Blind Prince is an adorable little puzzle platformer. It's pretty short but it is a pleasant experience.

ME2 and ME3 dlc being at least triple the price of the game is like peak EA right there.

to buy or not to buy Black Desert? anyone play it? $10 dont seem too bad for it

I dabbled a little on the PC and tried the beta, but I had a friend that went off the deep end with it. It's your standard mmo-fare through and through. The issue that arises is when you start getting to endgame stuff. The way to progress is to constantly upgrade your gear, which requires (1) a ton of grinding, (2) rare materials, and (3) the willingness to risk losing your stuff when the upgrade fails. That being said, no idea if any of that has been re-balanced recently in general or for the Xbox version.

 

Edit: I forgot to mention some of this can be circumvented by sinking money into it. However, it gets really pricey after a bit.

Decided to pick up Far Cry 5. It sure is purdy.

 

And speaking of FF7 (and 9), the act of making the 3d models super-high res makes them clash horribly with the low-res prerendered backgrounds.

Apparently Phoenix Wright is out in Japan already, I saw someone post a screenshot downloading it and it had an English title so maybe it has English already. Probably not worth figuring out the currency and risking it not being translated I guess. Appears to be $30, but as far as I know they didn't give a hard date for the West yet.

The Switch version has English text. I'd be surprised if the Xbox version didn't either because that would require effort on Capcom's part.

I own both switch and xbox but this is a huge punch in the gut for xbox owners. I assume they did this because switch has a higher player base in japan

I'm not sure I follow. Microsoft themselves were the ones that canned it.

Crackdown 3 is a pretty easy and short game, but I hope I'm not alone in saying Fuck the flying drones.

I think that's the cheapest Divinity 2 has been? I want it to go lower.

 

Gonna stare at that For Honor season pass all week.

AWP - wall running was removed because it was fun to pull off but frustrating to have happen against you.

Although, I don't see what's different in a normal deathmatch with mechs that reduces that.

Most modes let you respawn and get right back into the fight so getting bonked from above stings less.

Edit: That said I think it can work, but I think most people aren’t ready for it yet. Given that it’s a f2p title not having those features in a “trial” mode is a missed opportunity to test the waters.

Totally did not know Ys was on Xbox. I wonder if it’s as difficult as Oath in Felghana.
