    First look at Code Vein, the NOT Bloodborne sequel action RPG from Namco Bandai developed by the God Eater team.
    http://gematsu.com/2017/04/first-look-code-vein-bandai-namco-new-action-rpg

    I'm at half mast. This is definitely going on my watchlist, although I hope it's doesn't suffer from the same issues as God Eater. Definitely got monotonous at times and felt like a chore to play.

    That's kind of an issue with that games genre though.

    Looking at how much it looks like God Eater I'm actually pretty interested now. I'd love to see their style applied to something more streamlined and focused so that repetition doesn't become an issue this time.

    If you're a fan of arcade racers you need to get on that Drift Stage alpha, it's 3 years old with only a single car and track available yet it's more fun than most complete racing games I've played because of the art and the most satisfying skill based drifting mechanic I've ever used. I think the full game is releasing later this year.

    I'm betting Daytona 3 will land on consoles before Drift Stage at this point. The former having a bigger team and budget behind it, but still. The only racers I play are Dayotna HD, Mario Kart 8, and RR4. I should pick up Sonic ASRT for the Wii U despite the 30fps (of all the companies). The music alone almoo~ost makes up for that.

    Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is really fun. I can see why there was a lot of hoopla over this one back in 1989. It is pretty difficult, though. I've got just as many game overs in this baby as I have when I started playing BOTW. Finding just the right way to approach enemies is super important as is going out with better gear and taking into account your current transformation. Fighting as a Mouse Man is way different than fighting as a Lizard Man.

    Played through Megaman Zero properly yesterday, the start of that game is really difficult but gets way easier as you progress. It kinda tries to not have bosses get locked into a damage loop like in other MM games when you use their weakness but they still take lots of damage. Weirdly Copy X was the easiest boss in the game. Level design isn't as goodfun as classic/X but it's still really fun. I like that the better you play the difficulty increases but I prefered to take my time through the stages and I guess I missed some of the elfs so my score wasn't great and I didn't rank up much but the fact it's there is really cool. A solid 7/10 imo.

    Was gonna start the rest but the roms don't seem to work on the PSP GBA emu, which is not really a problem as I'm just gonna get the DS collection anyway.

    I might have to hit that Nightmare mode for my next P5 playthrough. This, thus far, has without question been the easiest SMT game I've played. Some of the abilities you get are gamebreaking, like the ability to create Personas that are a higher level than you.

    You can't create Personas with a base level higher than your MCs, normally. They can level up past your level after getting a boost and you can summon a registered Persona higher than your level. "Wild" Personas at a higher level will automatically tell you to kick rocks, though.

    Speaking of voice actors, I wonder if the voices for the Telltale Guardians of the Galaxy game are the new official voices for those characters (e.g. Nolan North as Rocket). Marvel usually has one VA for each character across all non-live action media. However, Telltale seems to have a habit of using VAs who aren't the usual ones voicing the character (e.g. Batman).
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    sheeeit, another vid on Necromancer in Diablo 3... observe how awesome the character is looking at this point.


    One nitpick I still have about D3's customization though... it's unfortunate that you can't dye ALL sections of clothing....with most, probably all of them... there's certain sections that cannot be recolored with the dye system. I hate that this seems to be the way things are handled in most games with customization, actually....they rarely let you recolor everything on clothing and armors. All that does is limit the possibilities of customization.

    So someone one GAF posted that he noticed Bomberman R on Switch got a patch for 60 FPS lol if true. How many games go from 30-60 FPS in a single patch? That's impressive especially for Konami of all companies, but the OP also claims the graphics took a hit.

    Except I was clearly talking about console not PC, I don't think I've ever heard of a console game getting a 60 FPS patch unless you count a last gen game ported to current gen, just thought it was interesting, especially for console gamers who would like to experience 60 FPS games maybe this will become more common in the future?

    I'm assuming the game could already could run pretty close to a constant 60 but with annoying frame drops, so they locked it at 30 to avoid them.
    Now with a bit of further optimization they've managed to remove those drops so they patched the game to run at 60.

    This lack of polish was likely due to the excecutive decision to push the title out faster to launch simultaneously with the Switch.

    The current consoles on the market are based on PC Hardware, PS4 and Xbone is based on x86 architecture and the Switch is based on Arm architecture

    It's the same programming tricks used. Hell the Xbone uses a variation of Windows 10.
    The only thing is the settings are not user adjustable, and there less debugging for hardware as all of the same platform of console has the exact same hardware.

    Also there are plenty of Console games that do run at 60 FPS.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
    Forza Motorsport 6
    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
    Outlast
    Star Wars Battlefront
    The Last of Us: Remastered

    All run at 60 FPS, except for Forza the PS4 versions are used.
    And with the exception of Battlefront, all those games run at 60 FPS at 1080.

    I never played Lords of the Fallen nor did I have much interest to, but The Surge looks fucking awesome, I have too many games in my backlog to add another especially at full price, but man will it be hard to resist buying it day 1. I feel like I'm the only one hype for it, only thing I see so far I don't like is the chromatic aberration on hit animations

    Is that a Vanquish style slide cancel I see?

    You really need to learn how to read. I said Forza runs 60 FPS, I was saying it was the only Xbox One game on the list.
    except for Forza the PS4 versions are used.

    As for your other statement, I was talking about game sales, not consoles.
    Xbox One simply lacks game contents, they always do these "clever tricks" to make their sales look better than they actually are.
