I don't think they'd work too well on Wii U. Have you tried holding the Gamepad in one hand?


Yup, and it's no more awkward than holding a tablet, phone, controller, or book with one hand.

My reaction wouldn't be TOO crazy... But, you know, more RPGs, of any kind, is a good thing!

More? Yes

Moe? No


To be more accurate, I probably should have said "bishoujo."


Well in this case your accurate in your description. Neptunia games are "moe" those not at "moe" as Moe Moe Daisensou * Gendaiban games. The thing is people get confused and class all kinds if bishoujo and shoujo stuff as "moe" these days. Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story is in no way a "moe" RPG as an example. The same is true for every Atelier game, general games made by Nippon Ichi, and My World My Way.

There are issues though, do we class To Heart 2: Dungeon Travelers of PSP as "moe". The games existance of what the game is, makes it seem like it should be. However the character aren't intended to be, or designed on that purpose. They are of course designed for their bishoujo visual novel roots. If we are forced to class that as "moe" we are forced to class Fate/Extra on PSP the same. That's just way off base.

People also seem to mistake the idea of "tan" character anthropomorphous of in animate objects and/animal as girls as something innate to "moe". However such logic is blatantly flawed. There is really no connection between the two, just that products that are "moe' like Strike Witches and Neptunia use them. I think I need a random picture of a Sailor Moon random villain of the week here, with some quote like "We don't need you any moe!" to get the point across though.

Oh there I made one...

Hmm... As expected, most people assumed the topic title was a typo of "more". I imagine most people's only experience with that word was at the beginning of No More Heroes. "Moeeeee!"

Oy... As someone who doesn't even like that style all that much, it still ticks me off to see people throwing around insults that don't even make sense (more than I dislike people throwing around insults in general). Kind of like when people describe games like Call of Duty as being for "casuals", which is the exact opposite of what I feel is wrong with the CoD crowd.



Anyway, my own personal reaction would be mixed. I'm not the biggest fan of a lot of modern western RPGs, with some exceptions like Skyrim, and I hate the idea of "JRPG" being a word to describe a type of game that only Japan's allowed to make (with the added implication, if you don't like those games, that Japanese games are inherently worse than western games). But at the same time, an RPG like that, especially if it's not particularly good, would just give people more fuel for the idea that "JRPG" is a thing, and a bad thing at that.

I'd be happy if the games that are already on the system and/or are coming out get localized alone. I'd gladly except more but again, plz localize them.

I want to see DQX, Monolith's new game X, and FExSMT come to NA and EU. That alone would make me an extremely happy camper.
