Far as I recall, the FTEs in DR are mostly there to expand on the background of the character.
But they don't actually affect anything in the plot line.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Anyway, I finally have some free time so I decided to download Lady Layton on my iOS and I've finished about 3 cases now. It's enjoyable, but the puzzles are easier than PLvsAA, which is saying a lot. It reminds me of Layton Brothers with the case solving style but still sticks to the traditional Layton style in each case. It feels really weird.

Hey, no need to tell me that VI and VII's stories are pretty dang similar! :will:
I've known it for years and it's one of the reasons I don't find Sephiroth that great.

Well there's the problem, they're treating Dolan Donald like a healer. In my experience, he's more like a bad Red Mage in FFXIV; he tosses out spells, occasionally heals when you don't need it, and is always out of MP when you need healing. The difference is that in KH, you can 100% rely on gitting gud to work around this.

My favourite part of ZTD is
Spoiler: Spoilers: First 10 minutes
The stupid fake out ending. You flip the coin and suddenly Zero lets you out and the game ends

I actually do wish it ended there tbh

I know this topic is old, but after discussing with somebody on YouTube comments, I just wanted to say Kanji from Persona 4 isn’t straight. lol No. At least not fullblown straight. I agree that his sexuality isn’t the main point of the character, but he isn’t straight. I think anyone who says otherwise is either lying to themselves or interpreting in incorrectly.

My view is: Kanji was attracted to Naoto when he thought she was a guy, and remained attracted to her when he “discovered” she is a girl. Therefore, Kanji is attracted to Naoto regardless of her gender, which probably puts him on the pan/bi spectrum. But he can’t be straight. His shadow wasn’t only about him enjoying feminine stuff, but also about repressed sexuality IMO.

I disagree. Mostly because, if you listen to what his shadow says and how he acts, as well as what Kanji says upon confronting his shadow, he admits that it was 'never about [his] orientation'. He just wanted to 'be accepted' because he had some typically feminine hobbies in the form of knitting little dolls and art.

But that's something that I don't like about the translation of P4. The way it ended up portraying Naoto and Kanji to the western audience. Their problems are very heavily based on the ingrained idea of 'feminine' and 'masculine' gender roles in Japan - which are still very big there. Naoto wants to join the police force, which is something that doesn't really have a lot of tolerance for women and many get the less 'exciting' jobs, if you want to call it that. (And her shadow saying she would change her gender is less about BEING a transgender and more about being the gender that WOULDN'T be ridiculed on the force) Kanji's hobbies are very feminine and, in Japan, diverting from this stereotype/ideal of being a 'man' can get you in a lot of hot water.

Spoiler: Danganronpa
It's the exact same reason as why Chihiro is crossdressing. He doesn't want to BE a woman, he just wants to be left alone because he isn't what Japanese people expect a boy to be.

@CatMuto C’mon. What he says means nothing, this “it was never about (...)” statement is completely vague and can be interpreted in multiple different ways. During the Investigation Team’s first meetings with the guy, we can see that he is completely nervous around Naoto. “I’m a guy, he is a guy, but he wants to talk to me...?” lol. He is completely insecure about his sexual orientation to the point a straight person wouldn’t normally be. He becomes frightened when Yousuke jokes about it (during the camp episode). It is a total sore spot for him. His shadow isn’t just about hobbies and gender roles. My interpretation of him has always been that he was into Naoto right from the beginning (while thinking she was a guy), but after he discovered she is a girl, he became more upfront/open about it because it is more socially acceptable. Of course, I may be wrong, but I don’t think so (I think my interpretation of him is the correct one).

Regarding Naoto, I never saw her as Transgender. I always thought she herself was kind of apathetic towards her gender, but wanted a male presentation because of the practical benefits it would bring to her in a society that was restricting her interests/self-expression. I’m not as confident about my interpretation of her as I am of my interpretation of Kanji, though.

I LET GARRUS DIE :sob:
Also Legion and Samara died. And Mordin kinda just fell over for no explained reason.
Good game, though. I'd get the sequel if it didn't require Origin on PC.

Can I talk about how much I absolutely ADORE Super Mario Odyssey? I got it as a christmas present, and I've been in love with the game ever since. The thing I like the most about it is how creative it is. For almost 10 years Nintendo was content with recycling the same concepts and characters in each game. The last game that actually tried something new was the first Mario Galaxy, everything after that was too afraid to try anything new and played it way too safe, to the point everything felt incredibly stale. Mario Odyssey tries so many things that would never even be dreamed of in past installments; vastly distinct art styles for each level including both cartoony AND realistic designs for enemies and NPCs, so many costumes that make call backs to Mario's history, the unique capture mechanic replacing the need for different power ups, and so many more creative decisions that make it absolutely amazing. What i'm most excited is how it will influence the future of the series, including the spinoffs. Can you imagine Mario Kart for instance including tracks influenced by this game? It really gets me excited!

Sure I'm having a tonne of fun with it. Having more fun with breath of the wild admittedly but that also is a Nintendo game that breaks the typical mold. It's just so fun to explore in and the combat is more engaging than I thought it would be.

For me the props really go to the Switch though. Console gaming on the go feels great for a commuter like me.

If anyone feels like playing Blue Reflection, let me tell you one thing to not expect: good lip-synching. The game only has a Japanese voice track, but the lip movements are... all over the place. The models make all sorts of lip movements, even when the voice track is something simple. I was freaking out a bit when Sanae was laughing a lot, just happy laughter, and her model kept moving her mouth very not-laugh-like. Can lead to some fun looks, though.

Since I am completely blind about this game - I only saw the cover and read the backcover before deciding to get the game - I have no idea what to make of the battle system and ways of leveling-up. You don't seem to gain any Growth Points from battles. Or, if you do, it's very little. Most of the growth for level up seems to come from obtaining the fragments. So, no idea if I am 'decently leveled' for where I am right now.
I like the idea of upping certain parameter deciding what skill you learn next, which can allow for party members differing in 'specialty areas', but maybe an imbalance isn't good? Or I'll end up with everyone balanced by end-game? Not sure.

The World Ends With You is getting a Switch port, including "a sizable new scenario that gets right into the heart of the story."

I'll be screaming for the next thirty minutes before I try to rationally approach this.

I know right? Though if it's just a port of the iOS one I dunno...I'll probably try their absurd new double controller style just to try and emulate the weirdness of the original game.

Ok, that's it, I'm gonna start saving for a Switch right this moment. Like holy crap every single thing I hear about this console just screams "buy it."

Most interesting thing is of course the new scenario. I'm hoping it adds a decent amount of content to the game but I wouldn't mind if it ended up mostly teasing a proper sequel that is already in the making.

Normally I wouldn’t pay any attention to a game like TWEWY, but seeing as how much people like it on here I’ll probably give it a go.

In general, that was a great direct. Seeing my favorite 2D platformer (Tropical Freeze), one of my favorite time-waster games (Hyrule Warriors), and fucking Dark Souls on Switch is pretty damn fantastic.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if we got a bigger direct fairly soon, as we still haven’t heard anything about the big upcoming titles.

Twewy was a unique mind gender of an experience. From its style, it's music to its bizarre control scheme. It's definitely an incredibly memorable game.


I love Hyrule Warriors too and was scunnered they didn't bring out the 3DS campaigns on the Wii U version as DLC but I don't know if I'd buy it again at full price.

I feel it's a far better game than Fire Emblem Warriors anyway.

Standard FE Warriors fight:
Me: Hey
Younger Princess: Hello stranger
Older Princess: YOU'LL DIE FOR THAT!

3000 Dead (on the enemy side alone)

Afterwards:

Older Princess: Oh what a silly misunderstanding, let's team up!

Ugh, is it that bad? I was seriously considering buying FEW due to the lack of a Warriors game on Switch. Thank god HW is being re-released so I don't make the mistake of buying something like that.

While we're on the topic of Hyrule Warriors/Tropical Freeze, after seeing them announced for Switch as ports I went back and listened to their OSTs again, and holy shit both are incredible. I knew they were both really good, but I don't remember either being this good.

That's legitimately how you meet Camilla and Hinoka (though Camilla is the most gratuitous offender).

The follow up conflict is always

Younger Prince Brother: Ah! They've kidnapped both my sisters! Murder them!



Like...it's disappointing. I expected if any world would suit "Warriors" style gameplay it would be Fire Emblem! I mean...Hyrule Warriors at least tried to make something unique and new from it's story even if it used old favourites. In this it just seems like it's about getting the crew together with all your favourites (though really all the favourites for me are the side-characters rather than the main cast). I almost wish they had made it an independent game without the crossovers, then maybe I'd find it more interesting rather than having the same boring lead-cast as the other games (except my bro Xander, he's awesome).

One of my favorite parts of Hyrule Warriors was how they integrated all the universes with each other. The story reasoning was kind of random, but I really enjoyed how each character reacted to the other characters and issues from the different universes. It's a shame that Fire Emblem Warriors doesn't do the same.

I'm curious as to what franchise they'll try next with the Warriors style. The only one that would really fit the gameplay as of right now is Xenoblade (Xenoblade Warriors would be fuckin fantastic) but that might be a bit too niche compared to Zelda and Fire Emblem.

@Thunder84 Emphasizing what everyone already said, TWEWY is really unique and one of a kind. I normally don’t really think most Square games are that great, but TWEWY is one of those original games who explore the potential of the console to the fullest.

About the Switch, Shin Megami Tensei V alone is enough reason to make me buy one
