  1. How is Sonic Forces one of the worst Switch titles?

    1. wxvystony

      wxvystony

      Sonic Forces isn't a bad game. It just doesn't compare to the games we got before this. Critics like WatchMojo do not understand what's good and not good.

      Giving it attention was your first mistake.

      Its WatchMojo what did you expect? War and Peace?

      It's a bad game, but it's not Vroom in the Night Sky bad.

  2. Today I learned Knights of the Holy Lance found its way in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment for the PSP.

    Aparently it's part of Tatsuya's scenario, which is only in the PSP version.

    This also makes me realize how odd it is that it's the second theme to be associated with the duology, after Maya's theme. It plays during 3/4 openings (only exception is Innocent Sin's PSP theme), and has like 7 different remixes.

      This is just reminding me how badly I need my Pi4 case to arrive so I can finish this new Retropie build. Persona 2 is a game I've been dying to get to.

  3. It's weird seeing so many people asking for a Persona 3 Remake. I'd say Persona 1 and 2 (both IS and EP) need a remake first, but I guess most fans would just use the "Persona 1 and 2 don't exist" joke.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Persona 1 really needs an update. Its too much like SMT than the later games with a ton of gameplay flaws.

      2 is too perfect though. Yeah it could look prettier but it would make 5 look like a NES game and Atlus doesn't want that.

    2. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      It makes me wonder if a remake would keep the positioning mechanic where you have the battle map made out of squares and the attacks have a certain range.

      As for 2, I can see what you mean, but I still think they can improve some aspects.

  4. DanganRonpa Trigger Happy Havoc seems to be available on mobile devices now, at least in some countries.

  5. As someone who never ended up buying the Encore DLC for Mania would you say it's worth getting?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Yes. Especially on sale.

    2. Sean

      If you want more playable characters and harder special stages then yeah. Ray's the second most fun character to use after Sonic.

      It's also necessary for some mods if you're going to look into those.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      I never got it cause I didn’t play Mania itself much after completing the game a few runs through. I eventually will get it, but mostly for the multiplayer aspect, as having more local multiplayer games on PS4 is always great for me

    4. JezMM

      Encore Mode is probably the best way to play the game if you haven't for a while and felt you had your fill of the regular mode before (always end up taking the same routes etc).

      It also has the perk of a much better checkpoint bonus stage that doesn't feel like a horrendous interruption when you decide to go into it, as well as an extra mini act and an completely new layout for Mirage Saloon Act 1 that all characters share.  I feel like some new areas were added to other acts too for Mighty and Ray to find but can't remember if they were just for Encore or whether they were added to the base game too. Might be wrong on that last one. Also yeah, as mentioned the Special Stages are also completely new tracks for Encore Mode.

      The only downside is that the shifted palettes aren't always as appealing as the original looks for the stages, and you can't access Egg Reverie, so it's not the definitive way to play the game.  But definitely worth at least one playthrough.  Personally I also enjoyed it most as a self-imposed challenge where I never allow myself to manually switch characters - just have to adapt to who I'm given.

      To me, Encore Mode is more valuable for it's character swap mechanic and life system than the pallette and level design changes.

      Mighty and Ray sweeten the deal of course, as does 4 player racing. It's worth $5.

    6. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Mighty and Ray alone make it easily worth the $5 imo.

  6. Yakuza 0's "Eye of the Dragon and Tiger" might be the most time-wasting trophy I ever had to do...

  7. The Yakuza trailer was great.

  8. https://steamdb.info/app/1235140/

    Yakuza 7/Like a Dragon spotted on Steam.

  9. Yakuza 0 has to be one of the harder games to platinum, excluding those with multiplayer trophies.

    You have to play through the game twice, once on the highest difficulty, you have like 5 missable trophies in the story, a trophy related to a luck based minigame that you have to beat 10 times and others.

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      And you have to be good at playing mahjong. Wich in itself is a challenge.

    This is gonna be interesting.

      Perhaps I'm the only one that doesn't understand this?

  11.  

    Why

    1. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      I can understand Silver, since he was voiced by Bryce Papenbrook in TSR. The rest I have no idea who they are

    2. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      I recognise 3 others:

      • The second one is Noriaki Kakyoin from Jojo. I really don't get why he's here.
      • The fourth one is Goro Akechi from Persona 5. I guess he somewhat makes sense.
      • the fifth one is Goro Majima from Yakuza. He makes sense in the way that he acts as crazy as Nagito, but there's more to him than that.
    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I don't get it.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Akechi makes vague sense, he and Nagito are comparable for their backstabbing nature to suit their true purposes of hope and justice. The only real difference is Akechi makes an effort to hide his insanity while Nagito rolls with and embraces it.

  12. Yakuza 0's final chapter on Legend is really annoying.

    The game has you fight like 4 waves of enemies as Kiryu as well as 4 mini bosses, and tons of guns that take away like a third of your HP.

    After that you fight as Majima with a really long fight and 2 bosses.

    You then return to Kiryu to fight the final boss.

    The catch it that normally, the game lets you restart any fight. This is not the case in Legend mode where you can only start again from the last save. The last save you can do is before the first fight starts.

  13. Not sure if this was posted yet but...

      Thanks for clearing that out.

  14. Spoiler for Yakuza 0's two extra bosses:

    I kinda wish they mixed up the mechanics for the two fights. So Amon starts with the cannon and then the helicopter while Jo starts with the Dragon of Dojima style and then goes to the Mad Dog of Shimano style. 

    So's fight seems way to gimmicky while Jo's is more straightforward. Maybe have So start with the cannon and then go Mad Dog while Jo starts with the Dragon of Dojima and then calls the helicopter.

    Both fights are great, but still...

  15. I started to realize I'm becoming less and less active on this forum. Maybe it's just the lack of news about Sonic...

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I know that feeling.

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      It's definitely a lull period. Don't worry too much about it. After 2012 the forums got kinda boring up until Sonic Boom became a thing, then another lull until 2016-17 for obvious reasons.

    3. Milo

      Milo

      @Indigo Rush Sonic Lost World happened in 2013 and the forum was pretty active around that time

    4. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Yeah, once the next Sonic game starts being teased the forum will get busier again as we'll have something to talk about.

  16. https://www.gamesradar.com/best-persona-games/

    I don't get how people write articles ranking games they clearly never played.

    Persona 2: Innocent Sin introduced Persona summoning? What? What about Persona 1? And 2 didn't have negotiations? The main character has a meme around his motorcycle noises which come from his negotiation... There's more but this status would get too long.

  17. Catherine coming to Switch instead of Persona 5 is most likely gonna cause an uproar from the fanbase.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Meh, not from me.

      It suggests that more Atlus games are likely on the way. Or maybe I'm being naïve...?

  18. I defeated Jo Amon in Yakuza 0. This felt way harder than Kiwami 2's one. I have So Amon left, but I need to clear Kiryu's substories first.

  19. I think the best way to tell how much the Persona series changed in tone over the years is these two songs. Both are the battle themes for Persona 1,the original and the PSP remaster:

    Megami Ibunroku Persona/ Revelations Persona/ PS1 Persona 1

    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona/ Persona/ PSP Persona 1

  20. So I just defeated Yakuza 3's final boss.

    Anyone else who played the game found it easy?

  21. You really cannot pause cutscenes in Yakuza 3 or am I missing something?

    You'd think they would add that option.

  22. Started playing Yakuza 3 Remastered on the PS4. It looks great, but I still wish it got the Kiwami treatment for the combat. 

  23. Seems like Kakarot isn't coming soon, so I canceled my order.

    Most likely will buy it digitally. Sad that I lost the pre-order bonuses but they were only early unlocks either way.

  24. Pre-ordered Kakarot and yet still didn't get the game.

    Next time I'll just buy the game digitally most likely.

  25. When you guys pre-order a game physically, does it usually arrive on the day it launches? The last time I did that with DB Xenoverse 2 it was the case.

    However, I pre-ordered DBZ Kakarot and I didn't get any sign yet. I assume it won't arrive until Monday.

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Never, which is part of why I almost never do it.

    2. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      So it was an exception and not the rule. I see.

      I could've bought the digital version (I dought the deluxe edition with the season pass) but the physical one was cheaper (maybe because of how the PS Store converts prices into other currencies).

    3. E-van

      I usually get games day one from pre-orders on Amazon but that's most likely only because I have Prime.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Honestly depends on how close you are to a shipment facility as far as Amazon is concerned... for the most part. Usually I get some sort of notification the night before about it being in the facility and then, sometime in the morning, I get an "out for delivery". I imagine that this is less of a norm the farther away you are from one.

      So far, I've only had one game arrive late (MK8 Deluxe) which took an extra full 3 days and I still don't know wtf happened there.

      Though keep in mind that I still usually buy a game straight from Best Buy nowadays if I'm dying to get my hands on it. Really, ordering online has always been more of a convenience thing for me.

    5. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      The only two games I've ever pre-ordered were Smash 3DS and the Crash N-Sane Trilogy. Both were through Gamestop, and both times I had to drive to the store and pick it up. Which is a half hour drive and out of state, have I ever mentioned that I live in the middle of nowhere? Don't ever visit southern Illinois, there's nothing here but corn, deer and people who think they're rednecks but really aren't.

    6. E-van

      E-van

      Yeah I got MK8 Deluxe late too when it came out. Must have been some sort of distribution problem there.

    7. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      I preordered from a different store this time than when I preordered Xenoverse 2. None are Amazon, Gamestop etc. as we don't have that here. 

      It's not really that big of a problem if it arrives on Monday or anytime really but I can't stand seeing it everywhere I go as I think I already saw half the game only from youtube thumbnails alone.

    8. FReaK

      FReaK

      For me it's usually better to not pre order, most shops in my area sell games 3-5 days prior to release. The only exception of that was MediEvil, probably because it released on the same day as the last CoD. Nobody knew it would be coming out, lel.

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It really depends on the country, your region within the country and the retailer and shipping. In mainland UK, games arrive on (or before) launch day around 99% of the time. Retailers always say "pre-order for guaranteed delivery by launch day". I've only ever had one game arrive a day late.
