Who'd have thought that Digimon would eventually make a better game than Pokémon. A franchise that's nowhere near the success of Pokémon and was long considered a ripoff has made a game that puts literally every Pokémon game to shame and shows how lazy GameFreak is.
>Full 3D with Digimon that follow you
>Effort put into graphics and details
>Digimon gameplay was always pretty good, this looks like it improves greatly on it
>Online battling mode
>Console AND handheld editions that let you interchange save data
And then there's the lazypiece of dog shit that was ORAS.
Digimon wins regardless of sales, they win because they treated their franchise, a struggling under dog, with the dignity it deserves to make a great game.
Also General Digimon thread I guess.
>Digimon making full 3D games of quality
>Pokemon resorting to mobile apps
Top fucking kek familia. Someone shoop pikachu ears onto Brendan
How does the game play though? That's what really matters here. Pokemon plays like shit but if this does too then it's worth the same to me.
>Digimon gameplay was always pretty good
But ORAS was pretty fucking garbage. Not even complaining about the battle tower either. Shit was bare bones as fuck. If I was 10 I'd also have been insaulted by the piss easy difficulty.
>oh sweet, a Digimon thread
>immediately brings up stupid franchise wars bullshit
>OP probably posted it on his phone
Monsters, yes. Games, no.
Digimon, whether effectively or not, is always switching up the formula. Penning stories, that whether good or bad, have a beginning and a middle and an end.
Pokemon is literally the same game rebranded every time. Starters, eight badges, box legend team fight, elite four.
Pokemon is casual through and through, and has no respect for its older fans other than HERES A GAME YOU PLAYED 20 YEARS AGO AND CAN DOWNLOAD FOR FREE ANYWHERE. Digimon has difficulty options, new game plus, extensive care taking systems, etc. it doesnt always work but it has the balls to not play it safe. Pokemon has no backbone, it's the equivalent of the Queen of England. It has the title, but what the fuck does it have to show for it?
>spinoffs don't count because they don't fit your narrative
>ignoring how the digimon story games have all been the same shit
One is a multi billion franchise that is beloved worldwide.
The other is a pitiful cash-in that is down on its knees pandering to old people for some resemblance of fame.
So which has the better marketing again?
Pic related is better than Pokemon AND Digimon, so all of you can stfu
Junomon is already a yandere for jupitermon.
>Hasn't played it
Yep, business as usual
>Not with that battle system
It's not even that bad.
I'm not saying /v/ doesn't have a problem with hyping games to high heaven, but it also has a problem with shiting on everything without even trying it or even looking at it.
>play the ds digimon games
>the ones that have a lot of the things present in this new game
>they're complete fucking shit
Nothing I've seen gameplay wise looks good.
No streams, no walktrhougs,
The only passable bits are statusing people to death in online battles.
I played various Digimon games when I was younger, not one of them where even remotely good. And I can tell it's mediocre from looking at it, fuck its even based on a mediocre pokemon ripoff. I'll read the reviews and laugh at you manchilds.
No it wouldn't.
If anything people would be so offput by "an enhanced battle system" that they'd stop playing altogether (competitive is very serious business for some people).
They should have known that with no change and no graphics that something would surpass them heavily eventually
Why haven't they gotten better at shitflinging in the last 15 years?
>I play competitive so no one would like it
You're not serious right? 95% of people playing Pokemon don't even touch competitive. A Cyber Slueth style Pokemon game would bring forth the casual apocalypse, since it's the casual game that's been foretold by prophecy to end all casual games
Literally every new mainline game gets hailed as the greatest one ever made. It doesn't make any sort of difference what the content is as long as it has "Pokemon" in the title.
He's saying it would be super casual.
Cyber sleuth's combat is a dumbed down version of the ds games that had you attack in zones rather than at digimon specifically, which made digimon placement important as to avoid certain strong attacks you would have to split them up and then they wouldn't get support bonuses from each other.
That's no longer here.
If anything pokemon's is more complex with moves that also hit your side of the field and having stackable buffs and debuffs.
>there will never be a Colosseum 3
The Data > Vaccine > Virus > Data thing is honestly terrible. The 2x damage modifier doesn't work when there are only three primary attributes. Also, the game is painfully unbalanced. The Royal Knights especially are way too broken.
I like digimon but depending on the series they have serious problems
Story has an insane grind after a point which can be somewhat mitigated by Farms but you still need the levels with more grinds to get digimon and you just have a mindless hoard of them and don't feel much of a connection
And World has the dying thing which bothers me because I was really excited about having a "partner" like in the show and it can be a little micromanaging and digimon selection can feel limited
Here's a new thing to do: describe your favorite Digimon line using pictures not from Digimon.
Starting with a true, but fairly easy one.
cyber sleuth was sort of boring
waiting for the superior version
There are people right now who would choose an agumon over a gabumon
>and a bunch of the digivolutions didn't make sense.
Digimon on a whole started with digivolutions that make no sense
>if he has a different opinion he's from reddit
How about you fuck off if you're so up to date with reddit memes
And ORAS was indeed garbage. The only pokemon games I have purposely not bought
And Digimon World games aren't boring to you? There's really almost no real gameplay. You just run around, mindlessly mash X and have your Digimon do everything while you stand around like a pissant.
>Digimon do everything while you stand around like a pissant.
I like that. Obviously in a monster battle your monster isn't going to do everything you say to a tee. Shadow of the colossus had a similar idea with Argo.
That could be said of all RPGs
At least with RPGs, you kinda have to think a little. Even in Cyber Sleuth, if you just blindly mash X, you're probably gonna die at some point.
I like to PLAY my video games, not watch them happen for me while I do nothing.
>I like that
Why not play a good game that has that like monster rancher?
You can choose to have your monster fight or you have you control it, but even when controlling it there's a chance it won't do what you say based on how loyal your monster is.
Haha, fuck no. The gameplay isn't nearly balanced enough for there to be anything resembling a competitive community. I mean, God, 85% of the roster is worthless and literally everyone leads with UlforceV-dramon due to its broken-ass ability.
just imagined a monster collector rpg monster girls instead, glorious.
>still no monster collecting game with gynoids
Is there any for the ds games?
The original game play from World and Re:Digitize was totally fine. The problem with Re:Digitize was that the world was bland and there were too many of those shitty reskin Digimon that nobody cares about.
When the dubfags that bought into Digimon as a Pokemon killer all die off. It was never meant to be like Pokemon and it never will be
That and the fags that think the Pokemon anime is actually good need to fuck off too.
It'll be a long time before it happens. It's hilarious how fucking delusional Digimonfags are.
I'll buy Cyber Sleuth eventually, but Street Fighter V got first dibs on my wallet.
>Walking with your Digimon
I don't consider this gameplay.
Mash X over and over. You don't even need to think about it. Just mindlessly mash X. Isn't this fun?
Watching something else fight while you do absolutely nothing.
>Why can't they make a proper game with proper digivolutions where you can't evolve divining into completely different mons?
Digimon are data, if you put enough differing data into a digimon, it'll evolve into something relating to that data.
Is semen data?
>Implying it won't fight for JUSTICE
>being a slut and fighting for justice are mutually exclusive
Look at those vagina bones with no sign of underwear in sight.
>there are dubfags in this thread
When the fuck will they die?
So what was so bad about ORAS? People shit all over X/Y too but I never cared about post-game content so I got a lot of enjoyment out of them. Is ORAS the same type of deal, or did they fuck up the 8 badges/E4 part of the game too?
>people don't like challenging games because of smartphones
>so we will put the challenging stuff in the post game for the people that want it
>but because of said people use smartphones and don't like challenging gameplay we won't add the challenging post game content
Gamefreak needs to give up their rights to the franchise and focus on their beloved smartphones.
No, that was the reasoning behind getting rid of the Battle Frontier.
>Kids these days like smartphones games, something quick and easy
>The Battle Frontier isn't quick and easy, therefore we won't put it in the game
GF are a bunch of lazy shitfucks.
I'm talking about the post game battle facilities, like the sorely missed battle frontier and why it wasn't included in ORAS by paraphrasing this question and answer.
But ORAS does have a battle frontier. It's the Maison, ported directly from the most recent games with music from the games it's remaking. Exactly what HGSS did, in fact. I think the Maison even has the same number of facilities as HGSS.
>they used Kerpymon instead of Cherubimon in the English localization of Cyber Sleuth
Goddammit Namco why the fuck are you so stupid for using the shitty Kerpymon translation from the Digimon movie. Cherubimon was used in the past couple of Digimon games and the Frontier dub.
Emerald frontier had rental pokemon battles, a pyramid to explore, the battle pike, and more.
The maison offers none of that, and to add a cherry to the shit sundae there's the "battle frontier under construction" thing.
No, that's only one facility of the Batle Frontie. The Maison is just the Battle Tower, it doesn't have anywhere near the amount of facilities that Platinum/Emerald/HGSS had.
>still looks like shit (square puddles)
>even fucking easier than XY
>chibi models still
>game is still focused on singles when the competitive metagame is doubles
Make the overworld models the ones used in battles, let us see the trainers behind heir pokemon, and have the pokemon on the field be to scale.
Colosseum and XD managed it so what the hell GF?
>20 years old franchise constantly putting games out
Hold the fucking phone.
