  1. >tfw I've only spent 5 years of my life in a world without Sanic.

    Makes one think.

    1. FReaK


      0.75 for me. and I cant even remember that.

  2. A bit of news. On an interview with Phil Spencer it gets casually dropped that PSO2 will eventually be available on "all" platforms (around the 40:41 mark). Notice that this comment is so off hand that I can't really tell what he means by "all" (read: Switch, Vita and the mobile versions). Sadly, still no news about an EU servers. Apparently Phil knows nothing about the situation and it might be up to SEGA to do anything about it.
  3. I kinda stopped playing after the Melee rework destroyed this game's compatibility with DS4 controllers. Is that still the case? Because I waited for a month for a response and I kinda got swept under the rug of new updates. EDIT: I should probably clarify since there's been multiple reworks. I'm talking about melee 3.0 phase 1.
  4. Silver Linings: At least this means Mega Charizard X is also gone, right?

      >actual dragon-type Charizard is gone.

    2. NegaMetallix


      Guess so. Always been more of a MegaZard Y kinda guy myself, though, so I'm disappointed to see he's gone too.

    3. Ellipsis-Ultima


      I liked Mega Charizard X

    4. Diogenes


      x was the good one y looked like butts

      Welp Charizard is gonna be a meta joke yet again

  5. Oh, I was thinking this was all about balancing since they are introducing a new mechanic that seems like a combination of two previous mechanics and didn't want to bring all that "obsolete" luggage with them, and then later slowly introduce the mons back (maybe not even in the same game, do it in future games with the chance of transferring Galar mons to the new titles). But they are outright saying each region is going to be a different toybox and you can only play with the toys you get on it huh? This is upsetting. You just know there is a list of "bro" Pokémons (and Ultra Beasts) that are not going to show up anytime soon because they don't fit or are not from Gen1. And this might even cause friction among fans since you know there are some controversial picks already in the game (I still love you Vanillite).
  6. That's... right... I know for a fact if content is up to date some of the bosses became outright obsolete since they were replaced with shinier purple-ier variants of them and those carry none of the context of their first appearances. Also if they want to keep the game up to date some of those quests should not show up at all (because people will want to farm for the most powerful item instead of an Elder Rod). A solution to this would be to make the old EQs regular quests that people can replay (maybe add a bit of a level to the boss only quests?) while keeping the new and shiny items on the weekly farm loop, new players would still be out of the loop but they'd be able to catch up. But that sounds like effort. _(:3」∠)_
  7. BTW We saw very little of Pokemon Sword and Shield in the direct but it lines up perfectly with a certain leak that's been around since before the previous Direct. If things keep going like this we are gonna get some pretty interesting stuff in the future.

  8. Reminder that No More Heroes 3 exists.

  9. I left the game before EP5 even started so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about anything. But as far as I remember it went like this: Ep1 and 2: Normal progression, clear the tutorial and then you meet plot relevant characters just by exploring the lobby (you can be unfortunate enough to miss them for while but that's unlikely) and then you are given your missions and what to do about them, you play the story at your own pace. Ep3: Kinda odd, you are given the choice if you want to start right from EP3 and get the new stuff or if you want to progress through EP1 and 2 normally. The weird thing is that if you chose to start on 3 you miss on the tutorial or you jump from EP1's tutorial to a point way too advanced (can't really remember). Ep4: You make the character and you are already on the command room with a lot of people you don't know about treating you like their lifelong friend talking about facts you know nothing about because your character became amnesiac after being put into stasis following THE HAPPENINGS. Then you are dumped straight into a mission and you have to go through EP4's first chapters and after most of the relevant characters are introduced THEN you are given the choice if you want to keep going or go back to find out what the hell you did in the last years. I'm pretty sure at this point the tutorial is gone. I imagine EP5 is similar? (I wonder how did they pull skipping EP4)
  10. I'd like to add that PSO2 is already available for the PS4, but it's the Japanese version. As for my guesses as to why the English version isn't coming on PS4, I'm going to assume it was just an agreement between MS and SEGA since the latter didn't seem to be very interested into bringing the game over here.
  11. It's all a matter of how restrictive they are about the (I sound like a broken record) Microtransactions. The Japanese server was pretty restrictive about what kind of payments they took for and from where they did it (it just happens that the western fandom was crafty enough to get through all the blocks they put, and later we had that mobile app). I assume a NA version would be a lot more welcoming (probably using paypal and whatnot) and hopefully this will be a non issue for people outside of the region besides the hurdles of having to get an Xbox account from another country.
  12. >Shenmu Tree is now an Epic Store exclusive.

    1. Marcello


      Epic's buying trees now?! The heck?!

      If you wanna breathe this air, you’ll need the epic launcher app

      PC master race stubs its toe again.

      Consoles where its at.


      That being said, why is the Shem 3 trailer labeled as a gameplay trailer; while going out of its way to avoid showing anything that can be definitively labeled as gameplay.

    4. DanJ86


      Fans screwed over by developer greed once again.

    5. Strickerx5


      i mean it isn’t like it’s a console exclusive where you have to own a whole other piece of hardware just to play it or anything >_>

    6. Dejimon11


      @Strickerx5 true but let's be real you know as well as I do that the epic store is pretty bad. 

    7. Strickerx5


      It’s bad yes, but it’s like saying Walmart is bad.

      Its a sucky place to shop, but it still a place to get what you want. 4K, 60fps games that you don’t have to cash out extra money to play online with.

    8. DanJ86


      Well, they always said it would be available on Steam. Gave backers the option to choose Steam and went behind their backs despite the game only existing because of them.

      I'm not really much of a PC gamer so the details escape me. It just feels like the whole process is...scummy.

  13. Well I obviously can't speak for everyone but in my groups during the beginning of the game ARKS scratch wasn't really that liked to begin with, but we accepted it because "boy, Japan sure loves gambling huh?" and of course why would we complain about our host's rules when we were playing there uninvited to begin with? But (in my mind destroyed by years of video games) I can clearly remember one of the more usual responses to the question of "Why isn't PSO2 coming to the West?" was that SEGA was probably going to try to address this microtransaction method and make it more approachable to our audience (later on the answer became the stupid amount of crossovers and the licencing hell that comes with it, as a matter of fact there are some particular collabs that I genuinely have no idea how they managed to get them over here). Of course, the people who stayed on the Japanese servers for some years obviously didn't care that much about it, and the way SEGA handled the system is... tolerable (those 30% boosters tho, those layered costumes tho)... so the lack of complaints about the system makes sense to me. But you are right about the game being F2P and because of it we could see ARKS Scratch make its debut over here without too much fuzz... Or so would have been the case if it weren't because now the USA is also getting into the lootbox case.
  14. >Checks Steam page for Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition.

    >Minimum Requirements: Windows 10.

    ... huh...

    1. SpinSlash165


      Is this the HD version? If so, the requirements are bullshit because it worked just fine on my Windows 7 PC.

    2. gato


      No, I'm pretty sure HD has been on Steam since before we knew Windows 10 existed. This is about DE, the one that's coming out on a few months.

    3. SpinSlash165


      Oooohhhhhh. Didn't know about that one, my bad.

  15. I knew it, it was that or the licencing hell that are those microtransactions (Dead or Alive amount of cosmetics, most of which are Crossovers). In Japan PSO2's way of acquiring cosmetics are either: 1) By playing a scratch for a chance at the cosmetic you want (with an extra expensive scratch that gives you a bigger chance) 2) By paying a stupid amount of Meseta to other players selling you said cosmetics at the price of their choosing.
  16. I'm genuinely perplexed by this. When I left PSO2 it was in such a weird state that just kept getting weirder and weirder as the months went by and unless this version becomes a completely different game I can't really see myself getting back into it. And I'm pretty sure most of the people who were eagerly awaiting for this version are the kind of peeps that have a lot of nostalgia for PSO1.
  17. Welp. Sonic wrecked the Badnik.

  18. E3 season is in full gear now, so many relevant things to my interests being revealed up and down and all around.

    Even with a lot of companies not going, it seems like MS enough will do it for me.

      ...why is my short a different color now?



  21. Wait a minute, TSR has a solo mode!?

    1. Bobnik


      It's been known for a while now, but yes.

      Yes, we've known that for a while.
