No one else can either. Especially since Nintendo said they will do all the work for SquareEnix. They're just sitting on the games and won't localize them. Yet they took the risk on localizing a totally untested new IP with Bravely Default....
>>253313980 It can't. Its 3D capabilities (polygons, not the screen) are too advanced, the resolution too high and its 2D features missing. The 3DS is a mobile console, not a handheld. The GBA and DS meanwhile were massively "underpowered" in comparison to the consoles of the time and the GBA had 2D capabilities. These "limitations" contribute massively to the quality of a library, because they force pubs and devs to actively create "unique" games that work on a handheld. Keep your GBA and DS while it's still working. It won't get better than that on the handheld front
>>253314826 It introduced the pair up/dual fighting mechanic which is going to be a series mainstay, and the relationship and children/breeding stuff gave the game so much more depth than previous entries
>>253315592 Pokemon X/Y were the shittiest pokemon games yet. Short as fuck with lame pokemon and a faggot ass fairy type. Pokemon has degenerated into a shitty autist EV's paradise with complete losers sperging over spreads and "competitive" online "battling". It's fucking pathetic.
>>253316392 I got yellow back then, and never got any successor, because they all grew "too complex". Multiple pokemon? breeding? shinys? What for? All that stuff's just getting in the way of the game. No, this is not sarcasm, I do believe that the "complexity" of modern Pokemon games makes things needlessly annoying. Sticking with yellow
You're just an extreme in the other end. You want Pokemon to remain exactly the same same as the first game. When the real issue with Pokemon is it needs to evolve away from the stagnant 4 moves per pokemon, rigid turn based mechanics that the first game had.
For fuck sake, even Dragon Quest games have improved beyond past Pokemon. Hell, Dragon Quests battle engine was basically better than Pokemon starting with Dragon Quest III on the NES.
>>253316486 I don't know, it is an upgrade but, it doesn't feel like a true successor, for some reason it feels more like a 1.5 with some more power, and 3d that never really worked for anything. But more than that it doesn't really feel like a new product, it can't link to the console, online is better but still extremely meh, No hd screens, no coherent multi media, still has a shitty camera,ext,ext. And from what it sounds like Nintendo is going to be fixing most of this stuff with the next handheld, which is looking like the true "next big" hand held.
>Dragon Quest I only like the NES Dragon Warrior games for some reason >Bravely Default I love old school final fantasy but this game is for fags >NSMB3d or whatever fuck all mario games after SMW. >Link Between Worlds the 3d models make it look like shit >Pokemon maybe >Smash maybe >Kid Icarus they turned a shitty nes game into a mediocre 3d platformer >Luigi's Mansion 2 Resident Evil Mario 2 no way
>>253318847 I liked 4 more than Untold, but that's because I really liked 1 and they tweaked it a little bit. Etrian Odyssey is my favorite game series of all, so I would say you really can't go wrong either way.
>>253317362 >When the real issue with Pokemon is it needs to evolve away from the stagnant 4 moves per pokemon, rigid turn based mechanics that the first game had. Just like Chess needs to evolve, using more pieces and a bigger board, right? Or Go, using more colors. The original game's "simplicity" was part of what made it so good. You could strategize, you had to pay attention to which limited move set you use, etc. The only "evolution" Pokemon needed was more balance for moves. Once the competitive players isolated overpowered moves and useless moves, the devs had to adapt that. That is all. More Pokemon, more types, more moves, they dilute the entire concept.
>>253318847 I liked Untold because it held my hand when it came to making a team, 4 was annoying because I had to remake my entire team to beat one fucking boss, and it took A LOT of grinding to get them to the appropriate levels. Both are good though.
>>253318252 >>253317975 Thank you, every fucking thread mentioning Rune Factory 4 involves people whining about how the devs are dead which just further perpetuates the rumor that they are gone when they are not. They are still here and Rune Factory 5 is going to happen. Dunno when but probably sometime in the next two years or so?
Its literally someone in the Square side. Because everyone else has stated they want to support the western release of Dragon Quest. Yuji Horii (Dragon Quest creator), Enix themselves, the western CEO of SquareEnix, Nintendo, the western fans...literally everyone has said they want to see Dragon Quest in the west. Except the Square side which is remaining mute on the subject.
Yet they have the final say on all game releases. Square or Enix.
>>253314502 i always assumed it was because of how fucking hard they have been pushing the recent final fantasy that they fear competing with themselves with superior product that will make many lost any interest in final fantasy in favor for dragon quest games
Just stop. And please, Pokemon was heavily inspired by Dragon Quest to start with. But Dragon Quest never limited you to 4 skills per character. And while early games would limit you like wasting turns when you equipped items in battle, they removed that later on. They had the good sense of modifying what needed to be fixed and improving the core battle engine over the years. If you play a Dragon Quest Monsters game now, the monsters can learn hundreds of moves and have tons of customization options.
Pokemon on the other hand has NEVER improved its core battle engine. And you are still limited to the same shitty limitations you were in the first two games.
>>253318847 4 is vastly superior to Untold in my opinion. The skill trees in untold felt so boring, like there was nothing I ever wanted. Compared to 4, where I couldn't wait to level up and get some awesome new skill. It also has AIRSHIPS and the best class.
>>253318847 I like 4 more than Untold but that's probably because of the changes they made between EO1 and Untold. EO1 is still my favorite game so for a newcomer Untold might be pretty good as long as you play on Classic mode.
>>253319885 Oh lawd, you're both wrong. DQ is just as fucking bad with end game being literally the same fucking thing. They keep the same ultimate weapons and there's nothing new. It's a rehash, both Pokemone and DQ, accept it.
...are you implying Dragon Quest is the 'exact same thing' as the end game to Pokemon?
Wow, you are trying so hard to make your point work.
Fighting one extra boss and doing some mini games in a Dragon Quest is nothing at all like endlessly catching legendaries, fighting in a Colosseum/contests, grinding Pokemon to level 99 and fighting people in multiplayer.
>>253313980 >NO ds games or GBA shit on the eshop yet >tfw only thing I ever load up on my 3DS is RE:REV or MK7 >meanwhile Castlevania LoS Mirror of Fate gathers dust >end up playing my DS lite more than my 3DS
The GBA never had a good library. It had some good games, even great ones but definitely no good library.
I'm not so sure about the DS either, since it was literally a shovelware machine. But of course there also very good games.
If anything I'd say that it's no question that the 3DS will have the best library since we're already going strong. Overall it seems that the releases are much more focused than the GBA or DS releases.
Also, the DS library is the 3DS library, since it's downward compatible.
>>253321253 There was never, and will never be, an EO4. Fuck them for forcing a platform switch on people. The content of the game does not require the move to the new platform, the new platform is backwards compatible.
>>253320942 Um, that kind of actually proves my point. I don't know if you're agreeing with me, being sarcastic, or whatever. What you listed is exactly what you do at the end of every single DQ/Pokemon game.
>>253321868 Got no use for one. I dislike the direction it's taken, dislike the higher quality (compared to the DS) 3D models, putting flashy over substance, dislike its lower battery life, its region lock (don't have a DSi either for that reason). The 3DS is Nintendo's PSP, a useless system that forgot its origin and purpose. As such, I'm not willing to pay $200 for EO4 (got no need for other 3DS games)
Falcon Slash doesn't work on everything in Dragon Quest IX. Try going up against some of the end game bosses like Psaro or Dhoulmagus and just spamming Falcon Strike. You will get killed.
And still, you have a whole team to support you, unlike in a Pokemon game where you can only use one Pokemon at a time (except in stupid 2vs2 or 3vs3 Battles). As well as being able to learn more than 4 skills on the same character. If anything, the entire point of Pokemon games seems to be about limiting your opitions as much as possible to make the game seem deeper than it is. While Dragon Quest gives you more skills and options to let you experiment and find more than one solution to beating an enemy.
It already has a pretty fucking decent library so far, However it's not the same as with the gba and DS since there's really no good flashcart or emulator for it yet so the avarage individual won't be able to play all the gems in the library because they're expensive as shit, and most people aren't willing to gamble on buying anything else than what's pretty much guaranteed to be good. In the days of GBA and DS I had pretty much tried every game I was the least bit interested in by the means of emulators and flashcarts. As soon as 3ds piracy picks up it will be as revered as gba and DS
I missed the DS gen so I'm using now as a chance to catch up with a flash cart. I'm hoping the flashcarts for the 3DS will be much more technologucally matured by the time I get through the DS library.
I'm sure you've seen the videos that discuss why vita failed. In short, it was due to more powerful technology giving way to more complicated/expensive games and that handhelds work best with cheaply made games instead.
The vita may be an extreme instance, but this effect is still relevant to the 3DS because it is still more powerful than previous handhelds. Even if the 3DS is more modest in its capabilities, it still does full 3D games that require more effort than previous GBA/DS games. It's just a simple matter of fact that GBA and DS games were for the most part very simple and cheap to develop, and thus you had tons of games coming out. Developers could make more games AND they didn't have to play it super-safe due to super high budgets.
again, I'm not saying the 3DS is too bloated, I'm not saying development is over-budgeted, or any of that. But GBA and DS were simpler and cheaper; it's just the nature of things.
>>253323495 meanwhile I can stick a cart in my GBC and it boots up without a problem. Ain't progress grand? GBC and DS are my only handhelds, and giving stories like yours, they'll stay my only handhelds for the foreseeable future
What's stupid is SquareEnix claimed they thought Bravely Default was a massive success, despite it not even selling a million copies. They even said they were 'changing the way they were releasing JRPGs' based on how well it did.
Yet they haven't changed a thing. None of their other series have been released. The only things that have been announced are...Theathrythym FF, Kingdom Hearts, FFXIV 2.0 and a Bravely Default Sequel. THANKS FOR THE CHANGE SQUARE!
>>253323807 smealum's been finding that his exploit still works on newer firmwares, but he hasn't done much or released anything. There are people on GBAtemp trying to hack it but everyone ther is a moralfag that hates piracy.
>>253323807 Fuck, really? I thought people were just developing a new gateway firmware that would work on 7.x.
I was so excited when I heard 3ds could play pirated games that I went out and bought a 3DS XL. Even looked at the copyright date to see it was 2012, because I knew it needed old firmware. Turns out you can't just look at the copyright date, and mine came with 6.1 so I couldn't use gateway.
I've been patiently waiting since november for any new developments. Full fledged CFW would be fantastic
>>253324252 >everyone there is a moralfag that hates piracy.
This is a recurring theme with all scene forums and such. Are they just pretending to act that way because they don't want to get v& or do they seriously despise piracy even though it's a fucking HACK FORUM? I find it hard to believe that people just want to hack the dozenth console just to play old ROMs again for the billionth time.
>>253324518 Nintendo continues their tradition with shitting on Europe as usual. The DS era was nice, since you could just import games that weren't released, but this is just suffering. 13 months after SMT4's release and not a single damn release. Hell, I'd go with a digital release when push comes to shove.
>>253325187 >BCGs >The owner scammed tons of people with a lottery and ran off with most of the money.
Wait what? Is that why the sight went down for so long? And who pays to pirate?
Also, the no cursing allowed thing reminds me back when FO3 was new and I briefly tried out the Nexus forums. Besides being a complete shithole hugbox full of furfags, I found it hilarious that they didn't allow cursing... even though it was a forum for an M rated game with plenty of cursing.
>>253322950 The only games I played that actively looked better with it on have so far been ALBW and FE:A for me. It's only used for battles in Pokemon and fucks the framerate sometimes. Every other game I played with it barely makes much of an improvement.
>>253325498 It's owner Stoi(Britbongian) held raffles for money and gave away a Wii and some other crap for the winners. No one actually got the prizes and he took the money for himself. He also has 1000 dollar goals each month to pay for servers, which is fucking bullshit, since only the torrent files themselves, and not the content are hosted on the site. Only suckers pay him. He's got a good thing going, but it split the community in two.
>>253322950 Absolutely not. It KILLS the framerate of many games and even when it doesn't, it only works if you hold it in a fixed position, which doesn't really mesh well when IT'S A FUCKING HANDHELD and you're constantly making small movements that break the 3d effect and turn it into a holographic trading card with double vision.
I gotta admit though, the dungeons in LBW do look cool with 3D on. Still not worth it.
>>253314894 The anon who called it the best wouldn't be starting anything. It would be the autistic retards getting butthurt over an opinion and feeling the need to justify why their opinion is superior.
>>253317984 Nah, you just started browsing /v/ and stopped being an ignorant pleb. Its not so much that Zelda and Final Fantasy have fallen completely from grace, but that we know so much more about vidya, that its harder and harder to get excited about them anymore
Just kidding :3 Final Fantasy has sucked hella dick since they decided to drop gameplay in favour of Grafix. The last good Final Fantasy was 9. Also, 7 and 8 were stupid.
Well you're hurting and killing a plant to eat your food.
"I don't ever want to eat something that came from an animal."
You do realize plants grow out of soil. Which has been fertilized from the waste of animals, right? And eventually somewhere in history, an animal has died somewhere and become part of that soil. There's no way NOT to be eating part of an animal.
Wait, you think vegans wouldn't eat something because something died on the spot where it was harvested
That's literally the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life. Sometimes I misuse the word literally , but no, that is by far the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life. How did you even come to that conclusion? Am I missing something? I have to be missing something. No one can be THAT stupid and still know how to type.
I know this may seem like overreaction, or a joke because of accidentally green texting and 4chan's sarcastic nature, but it's not. Please tell the doctor what you said in this thread, in context. You may have a condition that could hurt you or others.
They're an easy target because they are in majority naive, ignorant morons. In this modern world, a diet free of animal products is doable, if difficult. It's not even impossible to be healthy. But pretending as though it's optimal for health or some sort of singly moral method of survival is pathetically short-sighted and childish. This? Right here?
>>253315808 It's not that great as Luigi's Mansion. The ghosts are plain and boring, it's not one long game instead its cut up into segments (think SM64 kinda which each location having a certain mission.)
I will say It has it's own charm, definitely worth the buy.
Yeah. And another 'tenant' of many Vegans is that they won't eat anything that comes from animals because they are 'sentient beings'. So the idea that they would eat a plant that grew with the aid of a dead animal would repulse them.
>Veganism /?vi???nJz?m/ is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, as well as following an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals.
Thinken about getting a 3ds as i intend to travel a lot this summer and going to USA this whole autumn, and my laptop aint really fun to play games on, so i was thinken about buying a used 3ds from game (120 pounds). Should i go for it? Also if so, recommended me a good selection of games for the trip. I assume you cant use americlap games on a yurop ds
>>253344834 The 2DS is going for £80 and i'm sure the 3DS won't be too much more expensive new. If you get one, make sure you get A Link Between Worlds, Pokemon X/Y if you're still into that, Fire Emblem and Virtue's Last Reward. I've played all those and they're pretty fucking good.
Recently, i've been playing my Vita more, i love the lack of region lock on it. I can order any weeb ass game from play-asia with free delivery to the UK and play. I've got Soul Sacrifice Delta (best game on Vita imo), Persona 4, Muramasa Rebirth, Dragon's Crown, MGS HD collection, Gravity Rush etc. I've also got FFX HD and a few older Final Fantasy games, along with other PS1 classics like RE2 and 3, and Dino Crisis 1 and 2. All fit on 1 8GB memory card thank god.
>>253350652 >>253350680 Do we know if it's going to be on the Wii U. I know Horii wants it on a home console and the Wii U is the best system in Japan right now but I don't know how well the PS4 is doing now that it's out. But yeah I just wish Nintendo stood up against SE a bit more. Have the make an official comment about how they want to release it but SE is stopping them from doing it.
Yuji Horii hasn't confirmed anything. And the majority of websites 'confirming' Yuji Horii has said its on a console are wrong. Yuji Horii merely said he 'would like to see it on a large screen'. Which tons of sites retranslated as 'OMG DQXI ON CONSOLES!!!11'
I would like to see DQXI on a console more than anything. But there is just no confirmation yet. And the Wii U hasn't even sold 2 million in Japan while PS4 hasn't even sold 1 million. Compare that to the 3DS which has sold 16 million units in Japan.....its pretty hard to conceive them putting DQXI on a console.
>>253352632 I know. That's why I worded the way I did. I know he wants it on the large screen (which it's kind of obvious he means home console) but I didn't know if there was any confirmation about it.
I could see Horii just putting on the Wii U (since it's the best sell home console right now) just because he haven't had a pure home console Dragon Quest game in almost 10 years and he was always a fan of home consoles. Just happy he seem to feel iOS isn't actually gaming consoles so outside a random port or so it would never actually switch to it.
I'm kinda afraid he might put it on the 3DS, then 'port' it to a home console like Wii U later. or vice versa like he's doing with Dragon Quest X.
But like I said, I'd love to see it on a console. I suppose if it goes to the Wii U (or PS4) first, I'll be content. Even if it goes to 3DS, I'll probably be fine. Since its suppose to be a single player game instead of multiplayer focused like DQIX.
