Carful not to burn yourself on your hot takes there buddy
Yeah well it’s not fair to compare anything to the greatest game ever made known as Jumping fucking Flash
Wu Tang for the children!
I put about 40 some hours into Xenoblade and only got to about the 1/2 mark and stopped playing. Now I’m afraid I’ll get back and not have any idea about the combat again. I could probably start over and beat it in about 60 hours if I stopped trying to do side-quest. Also the grinding issue was a mess in that game. Probably spent a whole day grinding because the increase in enemy levels rises way too quickly. I’m trying to save the god damn world, I can’t spend hours on hours killing mindless roaming beast just because the game wants me to. That’s a huge flaw in the game design and it’s a big reason why I want to wait on getting the WiiU game. And yeah, I get that it’s “MMO” style, but it’s not an MMO. I’m not having fun grinding by myself like I would in a MMO.
pre-exam studying, etc.
I always got into philosophical hip-hop for this. Roots, Wu-Tang, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye, early Eminem.
Ha, well you’ll hate me for this. When I got SMTIV, it had the book and OST, and I threw away the OST because I knew I was never going to listen to it.
I like a lo of musicals, not the shitty ones like Grease, but I did theater in grade school and enjoy seeing new broadway stuff when in NYC. That said, I don’t own any musical CD’s.
I mean, keep on keeping on, I just don’t really see how a CD is better than a free full-fledged game.
I never saw the point in having an OST for a game. It’s not really car music, it’s not party music, and places like youtube have all the music available anyway. I just don’t think I can come to a point where I would ever want to listen to Majora’s Mask music on a CD player.
I mean, who still has CD players outside of cars?
I also want to point out that I highly doubt that they didn’t do figures/shirts/whatever because of financial issues. They probably went over plenty of data and research and thought that by giving away more free games, they could sell more consoles. They just did a poster set and a tee-shirt in the first half of the year anyway, so if they couldn’t “produce” stuff for this, then how could they earlier in the year?
Yeah, they might go back next year, especially if enough people bitch and moan, but my guess is that they did this in a much more calculated fashion than “we didn’t have money lol”.
If you like JRPG’s like FFVI and Chrono Trigger, you’ll enjoy it a lot, maybe more. I choose Game and Wario, but that was just because I have Earthbound and didn’t see the need of DKCR3D since I have the Wii version. Only other title I thought about NES Remix, but figured buying the 2nd version and getting G&W free was the better decision.
I’m more than happy with free games over physical stuff. I mean, I’m 24, I’m not covering my walls with posters or listening to soundtracks or putting figurines over my room. I’d much rather get free games than a crappy plastic toy or an OST that i’ll never use.
I’d rather get free games over posters, toys, or fucking game music(that I can listen to for free on youtube anyway). It may not be as “cool” as a physical item, but it is definitely more useful.
That…..is excessive love for a franchise.
Yeah that’s what I thought it was. a redux of the original, not a sequel.
How…..how can it be a new story if the characters are the same? You still play as the new kid, dad is the gym leader, and you still fight Team Aqua or Magma. Not sure how they can change it too much. Maybe small details, but still.
The problem with gaming on the iPad is controls. No physical buttons make many it hard to get good sessions from it. I bought GTA:SA and Secret of Mana for it a while ago and both were unplayable messes that pretty much has kept me from buying other games on it. Shame, because since DQ8 was released, I’ve really anted to play it but there is no way I’m risking $20 on a game that has touch controls.
OH. MY. GOD.
Quick, somebody get this guy on Team Sora!!!
not really. when you put them in a cabinet, white stands out much more, especially if you’re like me and have a black wood cabinet.
Maybe, I don’t know much past the 6 movies, and even then, only 1/2 of those movies were any good. I just feel like anything outside the “main” characters story is a little much.
The problem is that Star Wars is kinda, the same everywhere. Marvel has so many unique characters and stories and universes, and this is even without Spiderman, X-men, or the Fantastic Four. Star Wars has interspace conflict, and that is pretty much it. You run the risk of burnout if you did a movie every year on it.
Has MS really contributed to gaming in the past 10 years?
The HOTTEST of takes right here. 5/5 on the hotness scale.
They had a Runaways script, but it kept getting pushed for other projects and was dropped a couple of years ago.
Doesn’t hurt that they have Disney marketing tied to the movie. I mean hell, they got over $200 mill on Maleficent already. A movie that have tie-ins with the Avengers should at least double that.
Not really, the UK and the US market has 10-fold the potential buying power as Japan does. It makes sense to keep units in stock as much as possible in the larger markets.
Are you telling me….. are you telling me Japan is NOT a place where high school girls fight giant robots and have tentacle sex all the time?
probably because it’s the most universal “look” of the character. You only see her in human form for the final cut-scene, compared to the other 20 hours of her in Imp form.
