I'M A CAT AND I LIKE IT LIKE THAT.
Youkai Watch thread?
A reminder for everyone to motemote~ their favorite youkai!
pokemon was engineered to have appeal to adults and children while yokai watch seems to be specifically for children
How many pokemon designs get given shit for things like "being a lamp" or "it's a goddmamned bag of trash"? With pokemon those designs tend to be the exception while in yo-kai they're the rule because so many yokai are discarded objects like the karakasa or mimic objects like the nurikabe.
someone explained that a good number are just made up. They're either walking puns or jabs at modern society rather than actually being based on japan monsters. There are some, but they're the minority in the first game.
>shitting on pokemon designs
a reminder to get a load of this and be grateful for what you have
Pokefags continuing to prove they're a bunch of defensive autists.
No one even needs to bring it up and they'll come to defend it for no reason. Makes me ashamed to even like the series.
Thankfully the show is slowly writing her out
Nobody actually thought SMT was out to kill Pokemon right? They know that SMT predated it by like 20 years right? RIGHT?
>and fucking SMT
Comfy game, offers something different to the mostly static Pokemon catch 'em all gameplay.
The reason why Pokemon does way better than Yokai Watch is basically time of release. Pokemon were around first and have been ingrained in kids from the Gameboy and TV shows era who are now adults with income and familiarity towards Pokemon, these people know what to expect when they play a Pokemon game so they'll always sell and be a success. Yokai watch is just starting out in the west, where people have next to no clue on what it is other than "that other Pokemon clone", so adults who are getting a game for their kids for example, will simply choose what they've always been familiar with all their lives and what the kid is probably more familiar with as well. It doesn't help that Youkais are closely tied to Japanese mythos and culture, so people here won't know much about what they are other than "random made up creatures".
If you like the comfiness of this game, you might want to watch Natsume Yuujinchou
you do realize they're
designed by Level-5, right?
Sold more tickets at least.
The first pack had these three guys.
Really dig the one in the middle.
Second pack. I must've gotten a rare Youkai as the one on the far right has a holographic effect on its medal.
i almost got it today, i just can't bring myself to buy it, i like the show, but i feel like its not worth $40 especially considering there is already a equal in Japan and a 3rd one coming in summer, makes me feel inclined to wait for the latest installment
Lastly the third pack. Got my nigga Komasan. Too bad you can easily get him if you bought the Medal Moments figure but the store that I went to didn't have them. I just bought the watch and packs today.
Ah, I didn't know. I've yet to play the game and I have only watched the anime and a little bit of the dubbed episodes.
How much komasan cute fanservice is there in this game?
Is it worth playing just for that?
Really looks to me like you're better off killing yourself, I mean you can't even insult someone properly. Better off posting some random shitpost and going off to shit up another thread. Really, stick to what you're good at you shitsniffing autist.
That sounds cute as fuck
I will definitely be playing this as soon as people completely stop giving a fuck about it and I can get it used for dirt cheap
Depends on your preference I guess. If you want to play a comfy game with some challenges, go YW. If you want to play a game mostly for a challenge and some sick designs, go SMT. If you want to just smash, get smash.
I think SMT might be cheaper to pick up than the other two.
I haven't been paying attention. How often do they shill YW on twitter?
The conditions just weren't right
>3DS isn't as booming as mobile
>Kids, the main demographic, are on mobile
>It's japanesey as fuck, in an environment where kids want to be seen as mature
>The anime was never popular
Aside from Pokemon being king in US, the game is japanse as fuck leading to a very huge cultural difference that most kids have a hard time relating and understanding.
I'm generally against changing things too appeal for their target nation but YKW needs it badly.
>Bought a pack of medals yesterday
>Scan them all
>Get a Gold doll, Skelebella and mochismo
>Didn't save, reset, scan the medals again to see if anything different comes up
>It just gives me the same stuff
Damn they absolutely sure you can't cheese the gachapon machine, didn't they? I'm already mad the five star coin I got from the thank you password just gave me a frostina with no way to change it to something better. Seems like a waste.
Also one of the medals I got in my pack was Shogunyan, who's medal was a transparent yellow instead of grey like the others. I take it that means he's rare or something?
Support the fucking franchise if you want the next games.
"I'm gonna wait"
If everyone fucking waits, we won't get the next games. $40 is not a bad price for yo-kai watch. The game has tons of content.
You people are already saying this flopped when it was a sleeper hit in Japan as well. I've been seeing a LOT more kids into it nowadays and it's just going to get more popular when they go back to school. That's how word of mouth works.
The merch has been selling out in some places and the medals are selling a lot more than the expected. The anime's rating is going up each episode now that they are advertising it, doing marathons and are following a proper schedule.
Makes no difference to me whether it failed or not, Im getting 3 either way, and likely a 4 and 5 too.
If it breaks or something, then I can use the pain in the ass method of playing roms.
