    Project Mirai is well worth getting if you like Vocaloid music and rhythm games.

    I haven't played any Yokai Watch games because I'm not interested in the, but they're pretty similar to Pokemon in some ways. Animal Crossing is what it is.

    But... What is it? Like... I've never played an Animal Crossing game before.

    It's exactly what you see if you watch any videos, you walk around a town and talk to animals and decorate a house.

    yokai watch isn't as much fun as pokemon imo, I couldn't get into it. The monsters lvl up weird, the battles are based on chance it seems, and they aren't as unique as pokemon. I went into it also wanting to branch off from pokemon and it didn't do it for me. I suggest playing it a bit before buying it or buying it used for cheap.

    I liked Yokai Watch personally (though haven't have much interest in premise of Animal Crossing, so I can't speak to that one). It's similar to pokemon, but there's a lot of differences. The battle style is probably a big piece, it's more like Spectrobes, except instead of fighting alongside the yokai, you use a mini game component to make them use their soultimate move and use items/targets. If you get one, you should probably get one of the new ones, the world's bigger, and there's more Yokai to find. You'll miss some story from the first game though.

    I love animal crossing new leaf. It is my favorite game of all time but it isn't for everyone. I would suggest looking at a let's play of it on youtube. Chuggaaconnroy did one a couple of years ago and Marriland has a stream archive of it.

    Right, that's good - I like the older gameplay so I'll definitely consider picking RE7 up now. Thanks for the response!

    You don't have to, but it would make the second game 'better' in terms of the very beginning.

    Sory of Seasons: Trio of Towns just came out.

    I got $71 for selling a buttload of old games, and I was wondering if I should get Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and Kirby Triple Deluxe or buy Wii U games/Virtual Console games. I can't decide. All will be digital downloads.

  11. Does anyone have any good otomes they'd recommend? Not any sexual scenes in them, but ones with good plots, characters and cutesy romance with kisses and hugs. One like Amnesia: Memories.

    ((Sorry for bumping up such an old thread.))

    Should I get Stardew Valley on PC or the Nintendo Switch version? I have mild cerebral palsy on my right side, affecting my right hand, and I would like to make sure I can play either version of this game before buying one. What are the general controls for the PC and Switch versions? Do you need both hands? I love the Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons games and would love to play this game too.

    Edit 12/26/2017: I decided to get Stardew Valley for the Nintendo Switch.

    So I bought a Switch near the end of February and I want to get a new game as a birthday gift to myself this month but I can’t afford the top six games on my list. Well GameStop is having a $10 off sale for select Lego games and I’m leaning towards either Lego Worlds or City Undercover. Has anyone played both of them? Which one do you recommend? The sale is only until next Tuesday.

    *edit* I’ve decided to get Worlds for its creativity construction in free mode and online play. I can get it New for about $30 or $20 preowned which is better than the usual $40 it runs for plus I can get an additional 20% off if I buy preowned since it’s my birthday month. I’m going to try and get something preowned though.

    So I've been looking at these two games Shining Resonance Refrain and Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana, I looked up both gameplay footage on them even the trailers but I am still not sure whether or not to get them.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shining_Resonance_Refrain

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ys_VIII:_Lacrimosa_of_Dana

    So for those of you who have played either of them, are they worth getting? They look good but I am just not sure on them

    If I do decide to get them I intend to get them for the Switch since that's the only system I own that I can play them on.

    Shining Resonance Refrain has a demo on the eShop.

    I can't say much for Ys, but the game still needs patches that will release on a schedule.

    Ah ok thanks :)

    I downloaded the demo, and while it was good it didn't help my decision, oh well I guess I'll have to wait for the reviews and let's plays to come out for it and Ys before I can hopefully come up with a final decision
     
  18. I haven’t played Ys myself but I have heard good things about the game itself... not so many good things about the dub, at least pre-patch alone. Apparently the patches are fixing a lot of the issues. Either way you’re gonna stay for Mishy.

    *totally tries their hardest to hold back on aggressively recommending Trails of Cold Steel for in the meantime as it’s by the same Japanese developer and has one of my all-time favourite localisations*

    Hello all!

    Im coming here at a total loss of gaming guidance to hopefully receive some from fellow internet nerds. Turn based JRPGs, more or less, are what I'm after. In the past year I've played:

    I Am Setsuna (completed, loved it)
    Lost Sphear (barely started but finished the demo and really liked it)
    Octopath Traveler Demo (brilliant)
    Trails in the Sky FC (absolutely amazing)
    Trails of Cold Steel (also amazing)
    Final Fantasy I (completed, loved it)
    Final Fantasy II (started, decent progress)
    Final Fantasy III (DS) (started)
    Fire Emblem Fates (finished Brithright and Conquest, loved both)
    Fire Emblem Echoes (nearly finished, hated Alm's party but adored Celica's and liked the game)
    Final Fantasy X HD (quite good, just haven't found the time to finish)
    Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (kinda detested the gameplay)
    Xenoblade Chronicles (really good, but super long and didn't finish)
    Xenoblade 2 (really not loving the gameplay yet and feels like I barely started after 15+ hours of gameplay - an exceptionally long game with a loooong tutorial phase)

    Issue is, currently, I have no systems to play these on - so part of the advice I need is whether to pick up a Switch again, a 3DS again, or a Vita again. I can afford any one system, but only one. I know the latter two have outstanding JRPG catalogues; the former one, however, enables me to play Octopath finally, after nearly 100%-ing the demo (and it gets me I Am Setsuna again!). The 3DS has the most I already know I'd like to try, but at the unfortunate expense of having no previously purchased digital games waiting for me as I didn't transfer or unlink my old NNID. The Vita comes with some downloads of the PSP and digital games I tried (mostly some FF and Trails in the Sky games).

    On a list of games I really want to play, but haven't started and thus don't know tons about:

    Bravely Default
    Bravely Second
    Alliance Alive
    Legend of Legacy
    Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology
    Trails in the Sky SC
    Trails of Cold Steel II
    Final Fantasy 6

    Are there other games I should consider getting? Anything on this list that's totally essential and I have to play it? A different system entirely? (I highly prefer handheld gaming, keep that in mind).

    Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read this and offer some advice.

  20. Firstly, makes me very happy to see another Trails fan around! It’s always good to have a bigger fandom.

    Now, here’s a dilemma - I haven’t played on the Switch so I wouldn’t know about that side of things, but both the 3DS and Vita are incredibly good consoles. The PSvita has recently been announced to be ceasing production (at least in Japan, where JRPGs originate from) in 2019, so it may be a good idea to buy one before then. If I had to make a choice game-wise, then it’d be tricky, but I’d probably say Vita because I played Trails of Cold Steel (+2) and Persona 4 Golden on it, and the console is incredibly easy to play on and comfortable to hold as well. The 3DS is also great, but I haven’t had as much experience playing non-Pokemon JRPGs on on it. There are also some great games on the non turn-based RPG side of things, namely Gravity Rush (hard to define the genre but really fun and crazy yet awesome). Akiba’s Beat (JRPG using real time instead of turn based) isn’t a game for everyone by any standards (mostly because of its weak story), but its gameplay and music are good enough for it being worth £16 for a physical copy. So yeah, I say go Vita.
