The game couldn't come fast enough in where I am. Considering Fire Emblem Awakening sold out in just one day, something tells me I will have to go rather early. Even the clerk predicts the game will sell out in the first day.

Its easy to "make games just for the Japanese" (very Xenophobic I might add), easy to


Pretty much all developers caters to their own people. Do you think Modern Warfare or Call of Duty was designed with non-american audience in mind? Do you think a Chinese or Japanese gamer would honestly want to play a game based off America's sexual fetish for waging wars with foreigners? A game gets localized in another country because it was designed to cater to foreigners, but because it just so happens that some people in said foreign country would actually buy it, simple as that.

Typical Japanese developer/salaryman "scared of trying to think outside the box" play if safe mentality.



In what way is releasing a game that is a throwback to WIZARDRY of all games remotely close to playing it safe?

Two more videos are uploading atm with extensive gameplay. I may get a third or even a fourth done recording tonight, so they should be up by tomorrow morning.

Two more videos are up, with one more downloading for a total of 4. I've also organized it into a playlist.

I will work on a few more tonight when I get home, don't expect them to be up until later tomorrow though.

I'd rather watch a retsupurae of this than the real thing. You gotta hate camcorders.

Unofficial Froakie of the Pokemon X board.
Not to be confused with the webcomic. I've already received enough kicks in the nuts.

Yeah, I know it's pretty bad. Hopefully someone can take my material and make a better one though.

I'm still going to continue it because I'm enjoying the process.

Stagnancy and complacency in design and nostalgia purism are plagues amongst the gaming world...

Genres. There are genres. If you don't like one genre then move on to another genre, stop forcing one genre to become another.

Resident Evil Revelations and Mercenaries have proven you don't need FP view point in FPS games. You just need it when aiming.
FPS games are horrible design. You lose peripheral vision in FP when moving around.

Again, genre. It wouldn't be called First Person Shooter if it's not in first person. Stop arguing that Third Person Shooters are FPS, that's... mmm, better not say it, I'd get banned. But it's very belittling. And unless you wear a VR headset, you will ALWAYS lose peripheral vision, by the sheer nature that you are staring at a fixed screen of fixed dimensions and fixed area! It's... common sense! Nevermind the babble, it actually is common sense. A facedesk at this point is in order. *facedesk*

Visual novels are way too stagnant in design. Static 2D characters that don't animate? Feh...

...*sigh* Genre. This post is feh. But just to be fair, Virtue's Last Reward gave in and animated their characters in 3D. I wonder what your complaints for that one would be... Oh, probably the amount of text. You'd probably want it reduced to snippets or something, nevermind that it's basically a digital storybook with illustrations and choices.

What is it with this guy and genres? You, sir, might as well post a complaint to GameFAQs, demanding all other genre go in favor of that fixed idea in your head. Their links must you offend you so very much.
