@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 07:05 PM) Keep the spirit of Sly Cooper alive through Ghost of whatever-the-shit.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:55 PM) Also the fact that people are excited for a Sucker Punch game in 2018.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:41 PM) The fact that I can actually preorder Kingdom Hearts 3 makes my soul dance.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  acceptance : (13 June 2018 - 12:44 AM) I'll be honest, I'm completely out of touch with Fire Emblem. I couldn't so much as name a single character past Awakening.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on that

Let's just hope they improved the humans in that version of the game.

 

Not that it matters. I couldn't play skyrim without my "no blood" mod lol

Well we can hope that Nintendo jumps on board with the mod support. I can't imagine they'll be the only ones not to allow it.

In other news dragon quest 11 is getting a simultaneous launch on ps4 and switch, so probably not going to be a launch title. Still no news on localization. Guess they might be waiting to see how well 7/8 sell?

I'm a loyalist, but even I don't have any reason to get it because the only game I want from it is going to be on Wii U as well.

 

A console with handheld capabilities would be interesting, but I'd doubt they'd do it.

 

well, for now, but surely the game will get more exclusives over time

 

 

Seems like the rumors about being a hybrid console were true.

 

This actually has my interest now.

 

guess your doubt was wrong, huh? hahahaha.

 

also has my interest for the same reason + it's a Nintendo console and it will probably have great games, hard not to be excited for a Nintendo fan like me lol

CvN3WbFWIAAcUAe.jpg

for anyone not on the discord server these are the announced partners developing for the switch

 

Also since skyrim is running on it we now have handheld elder scrolls(hopefully with mod support like on xbone and ps4...actually not like ps4. i want full mod support). as sniper joe pointed out mk9 is looking pretty likely, and as voffie mentioned it's possible that there might be splatoon 2/dlc for splatoon(new models in the splatoon thing, and two item slots for mariokart!)

 

I really dig the 3rd-party support, but it'd be nice if we saw stuff like Falcom games, Tales of, and other generally PS-exclusive RPGs on the Switch... but that's probably wishful thinking, and even if they came over I have to wonder how well they'd do.

well, we can hope.

 

as for Skyrim, it may have been superimposed, and yeah, I'd say a Mario 8.5/Splatoon 1.5 (you catch my drift) are more likely than MK9/Splatoon 2, but I'd take whatever, since they're cool games. and I'd probably give Skyrim another chance assuming it plays well on the Switch and is the remastered version and is well supported and not just a port of the old 360 version or something...

 

Huh, I thought Blazer said it'd be 5 days from now that we get a reveal.

 

I honestly can't really feel any interest for the gimmick itself since I am totally comfortable playing on pure handhelds at home all the time anyway. Unless it has backward compatibility with the Wii U I don't see myself caring about it anytime soon. I'm way too busy on my vita did you know that SAO:Hollow Realization lets you use ALL HAIRSTYLES REGARDLESS OF GENDER GOTY MATERIAL RIGHT THERE

 

hmm, did I? now I'm curious when/where I said that, lol. I feel like I predicted we'd get an announcement late October or early November, but I don't remember giving a specific date. XP

 

that's fair, I like bigger screens for a lot of games though: more screenspace, more immersion, easier on the eyes, and easier to share/play with others (imagine playing Smash on an 8-inch screen >_>)

 

lol@SAOHR did you import it?

 

... *does not see anything related to Pokemon on that list*

POKEMON COMPANYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. YOU BETTER STEP UP YOUR GAME!

 

Whoa wait, skyrim is on the Switch?

 

since IIRC the Pokemon Company is partially owned by Nintendo... that might be way. (they're not really 3rd-party haha)

 

it was in the reveal trailer >.>

 

@about 1 minute. he plays it on the plane

 

yup, surprised me tbh

 

I couldn't tell what game he was playing at that point lol.

 

i wasn't really sure either tbh lol

 

ah. i really only recognized it because of the enemy and the dragon. the sword looked familiar too, but i wouldn't have been able to place it with just that.

 

yeah i played it a bit but the dragon was a giveaway i think which is probz why they included it

 

Let's just hope they improved the humans in that version of the game.

 

Not that it matters. I couldn't play skyrim without my "no blood" mod lol

 

???

then again it's Nintendo. they've had weird policies in the past. it wouldn't shock me. but i too hope they become much more open due to being backed in a corner with the flop that is the Wii U. (sometimes failure can push people to new heights... or they just give up and die out--but I like to think Nintendo is the type to bounce back stronger than before, not be kept down)

 

oh? was a simultaneous launch confirmed? but either way that sounds good, and I heard SE is like, hopeful for DQ in the West. I think the best thing that can happen is 7/8 is supported, and since I personally want DQ11 because it seems like it could be the best DQ yet (though I'll have to wait before being sure, ofc, right now it's just interest) I might even buy DQ7/8 just to support the series. (sadly the games themselves seem like they wouldn't be that fun for me, but it's not unheard of for me to like some games in a series and dislike newer ones or vice-versa, so... given that DQ11 will obv be a bit evolved, I'd like to be hopeful about it/give it a chance)

Indeed it was. Seems like a good thing though :P

 

I'd agree with the great games part, but we've all seen how bad the wii u's lineup was. That's the reason it failed so hard. Hopefully, Nintendo has learned their lesson about that.

 

 

 

since IIRC the Pokemon Company is partially owned by Nintendo... that might be way. (they're not really 3rd-party haha)

Console Pokemon games are usually made by third parties, though. I see chunsoft listed there, and they're the ones who make the PMD games, but otherwise, I don't see any indication that a Pokemon game will be there.

 

Well, aside from the fact that the Pokemon Company's director has specifically stated that there WILL be a Pokemon title for the Switch.

 

 


???

I've played the PC version of Skyrim and I am horrifically turned off by how incredibly UGLY everyone is by default. I'd post a pic, but I seem to have misplaced the one I took back in the day.

On dq7/8 if I had to suggest one I would say go for 8. 7 is really good. Probably the best in the series, but it takes forever to get going. You can feasibly have 30 minutes of gameplay without a single battle on a new file. Once it gets going it's a ride though. Just the main story is over 100 hours on average. Time travel and jrpgs just go well together. 8 on the other hand is very accessible and throws you into the action right away. The story is good, characters memorable, bosses eeeeeviiiilll, and most importantly is one of the best examples of proper cell shading. Game was beautiful on ps2, so I'm hoping it looks just as good on 3ds. Iirc they kept the full voice acting, but the soundtrack is now midi instead of orchestrated. No big loss since dq devs have done some amazing work with that in the past, but I intend to fix it anyway =p
