From what I’ve heard, this game is easily the worst of the Wii JRPGs that were brought over, however, Polygon seems to give unreasonably low scores to traditional JRPGs in general (ex. Ni No Kuni’s 6.5) so I’ll be taking this with a bit of salt.
The gameplay here seems pretty tailored to what I enjoy (I’ve thought this since the original announcement, but any positive statements back then got drowned out under the waves of hate on the internet for the game) I’m just hoping the execute this successfully.
I’ll remain cautiously optimistic until we see more.
I don’t really mind the exclusion of Last Mission as long as the other International content is added. I’m really hoping this release does well enough to justify FFXII HD (With the massive number of international version changes/improvements that game had).
Sony seems to be on the ball this launch… They seemed to have learned from the terrible PS3 launch (and the so-so Vita launch)
I’ll have to wait this one out till the dust settles, DD1 was fun, but I’m not interested in playing another MOBA. If the community for DD2 focuses on the MOBA mode, I’ll be waiting for Orcs Must Die 3.
That’s a shame, I’ll be opting out of any future EA games with always on DRM like this. Hopefully, enough people will do the same that they’ll allow us to play single player games offline.
This game likely would have sold better if it had some sort of offline mode, the terrible launch caused me to reconsider purchasing it even though I was nearly certain I’d pick it up before the server issues/launch happened.
Hopefully, the lesson they learn is “allow offline play” and not “add more servers at launch”.
Every time I write this game off they keep finding ways to pull me back in… this game almost feels like a giant apology for Double Agent and Conviction
It feels too focused on action, but then again, that’s a complaint that could be levelled at the entire game.
I tried Megaman ZX and gave up after a few hours (I had already gotten frustrated to the point that I was using an FAQ to deal with the game’s terrible navigation system and I eventually lost my drive to play the game) and haven’t played ZX Advent, from what I did play they worked like higher res versions of the Megaman Zero games mixed with action-adventure elements.
I’ll check out MMX: Corrupted though, it looks interesting.
As someone who grew up on Megaman X on the SNES rather than the original Megaman on the NES, there haven’t been Megaman games released that I’ve really enjoyed since Megaman Zero 4, Megaman Maverick Hunter X, and Megaman Powered Up were all released within a year or so of each other over half a decade ago (3 absolutely brilliant games). These new retro styled Megaman games (including MM9 and MM10) simply do nothing for me.
A much more complicated and varied FTL with far more content and significantly better visuals for iOS, Android, and PC (I loved FTL, but calling Star Command FTL for iOS isn’t giving the game nearly enough credit).
Bought and Downloading, nice to see some of the console manufacturers actually trying out Steam-style deals
and another series get added to the list of franchises I loved last gen but have been simplified to a point where most of what I liked about them is gone.
