  1. Braum is a weird choice IMO because other champions would be more fitting (Graves or Twisted Fate) and we already have a tank (Illaoi) but I don't necessarily mind. Hopefully it makes sense story-wise. Sadly, an interview makes it seem like he's there as comedy relief, which is not really sounding that great.
  2. Playable characters: RISE AGAINST RUIN Unite a party of League of Legends Champions, explore Bilgewater and set sail for the Shadow Isles to uncover the secrets of the deadly Black Mist.

    I really dislike timed exclusivities. I know this might come across as pointless but Yakuza is a franchise that used to be PlayStation exclusive for a good while now. Having the games on PC and Xbox is great, but why do Xbox users get the game 3 days before the PS4 (IIRC the game releases on the 10th on Xbox and on the 13th on PS4) version and like 5 months before PS5 does?

    1. Bobnik


      They announced this right after, so no 3-day exclusivity crap

      Which makes the next-gen timed exclusivity make even less sense now if it was MS just buying that exclusivity. Hell, companies usually don't say the release date for the other platforms till after the game's released, not before. Hell, it's not even 6 months, it's just a little bit less than 4, which is just unusual for a marketing deal.

      I forgot the game releases in November for a second, I thought it was October so my bad on the number of months.

    3. Conando


      Sony came out the gate swinging with timed and flat out paid exclusives. It’s not really going to end anytime soon. But hey, it’s 5 months rather than a year.

    4. Thigolf


      I'm still waiting for FF7R.

    5. Conando


      Yep. The exclusivity doesn’t end until April 10th, 2021.

  4. SEGA is making a Yakuza movie...



  5. Hey Ryan! I know it's been some time since you platinumed Persona 5, but I was wondering if you have any tips for me. I'm almost done, but I have some difficulty with the fishing and the twins fight. Do you have any advice for me?


    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      I actually haven't platinumed Persona 5, that's what I'm currently attempting to do, I'm just past Madarame's change of heart.

      That said, I've been following this 100% guide, and it's amazing for the boss set-ups, and fishing and all of that. I'd give this a look, as it's what I'm using for my own run atm:


    2. DiamondX


      My bad then. I thought you did. Thanks for the guide and I wish you luck in platinuming the game.

  6. For those that played Persona 5: 

    I am currently doing a Merciless run in the game. I reached a flu season day. I already did the Reaprr trick 4(?) times, but I want to get to level 99. Would putting myself on easy mode count as cheating considering all it does is make it take less time (Merciless halves the normal EXP you get) since I'm not actually fighting the Reaper but waiting for the Despair trick?

    1. Polkadi~☆


      It's your game, play the way you want to.

  7. Atlus actually did it



    1. Teoskaven



      Harsh but sadly true.

      Featuring Dante from Devil Lusts for Cash

  8. True but the way the story is written both characters share the same role in the story. Having them both would require changing one of them. They also have the same attacks with different animations so it would be having the same character twice. While I agree $10 may be too much, it's not exactly "cut content". The remaster is based on a version that didn't include Dante at all. And he's not owned by Atlus either so this might have been done at Capcom's request.
  9. Dante from the Devil May Cry series returns to Nocturne in the HD Remaster as DLC. Priced at 980 yen (around $10), the "Maniax Pack" will give you the option to play the "Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniax" version of the Remaster instead lf the Chronicles one in the base game. (Raidou and Dante won't be both available in the same version) Therefore, the DLC will change Raidou's cutscenes with Dante and make him playable instead. For those that played the original, his kit got an upgrade. One of his attacks got the Pierce effect added so that he's as good as Raidou. His cutscenes also include voice acting now.
  10. With Yakuza 7/Like a Dragon getting a dub, I can't wait to see who will voice some certain characters.

    Kiryu, Majima and Saejima.

  11. Simultaneous worldwide release is such a big thing for SMT. No more having the entire story spoiled months in advance.

    Too bad Nocturne HD will still release later worldwide, but I assume there isn't much, if any, new story content anyway.

    1. KHCast


      That still makes no sense why they’d do a simultaneous release for a brand new game, but not one for a HD remaster. 

    2. DiamondX


      I assume they are still working on the UI. The trailer had Japanese text after all.

    3. Dejimon11


      @KHCast baby steps KH. Baby steps lol

    4. Polkadi~☆


      It makes me happy to get a simultaneous release, because having Japan get the game first got REALLY ANNOYING when trying to avoid spoilers.

  12. ,,I'm the bug inside you" -Magatama, probably Back in 2003, "Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne" released worldwide as the first mainline SMT game to release outside Japan. A PS2 classic, the now 17-year old game comes back with a HD remaster on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Features seem to include: Voice acting (Japanese and English) Raidou/Maniax Edition Merciful Mode (and I believe custom difficulty, only shown in the Japanese trailer) Are you ready to jump back, or for the first time, in the Vortex World?


    1. Teoskaven


      I can only hope this is just a stepping stone, there's do much of the franchise that's begging for rereleases and localisations.

  14. ...I did it!

    I finally platinumed Yakuza 0!

  15. I finally completed all the Mahjong missions in Yakuza 0.

    Only 3 more rock paper scissors tournaments and I will have the Platinum trophy.

  16. I am really close to completing Yakuza 0, but the things I have left to do are not that easy to do.

    I have 8 missions left for the Completion List (6 for mahjong, 1 for batting and 1 for fishing), 6 tournaments of rock-paper-scissors RNG and some Climax Battles.

    After all that I'll get the Platinum trophy. But mahjong is hard to learn, batting requires extremely precise timing and Climax Battles are the hardest battles in the game.

    Anyone here 100%ed the game and can give me some advice?

  17. For anyone who played Fantasy Zone.

    How do you beat the third boss?

    1. Tracker_TD


      Typically I'll get up close and start dropping bombs on his laser launchers to whittle them down, and then switch to using my standard shot on the bottom few (though they can be hit with bombs using the right momentum).


    2. DiamondX


      Thanks. There's a mission in Yakuza 0 where you need to get 100k points in Fantasy Zone and I keep getting stuck at this boss battle. Level 2 felt so easy and it seems that level 3 keeps spawning so many enemies.

  18. One of the screenshots shows the inventory and the currency of "100 Lei". That's the Romanian/Moldavian currency, if anyone wondered. I'm not sure how to feel about a Resident Evil game taking place in the country I live in (assuming it's Romania and not Moldavia), but I suppose it will be fun to see.
  19. How is Sonic Forces one of the worst Switch titles?

    1. 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.  

    2. Sean


      but the clicks, man. the clicks

    3. Teoskaven




      Giving it attention was your first mistake.

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Its WatchMojo what did you expect? War and Peace?

    5. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

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

  20. The Famitsu issue coming on June 4th was confirmed to have something that ''will rile up the game industry". Zenji Nishikawa mentioned it's something related to SEGA, but he said it's not a Dreamcast 2. What do you guys expect this announcement to be?
  21. 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.

    1. CleverSonicUsername


      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.

  22. 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

      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


      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.

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

    1. 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


      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.

    5. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      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


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