>>
>>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

>>253316707

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.
>>
>>253317183

>tfw Bravely Default is what Final Fantasy is supposed to be

So is Suikoden, Dragon Quest, Chrono, Star Ocean, etc. Basically you can say any game that isn't Final Fantasy is doing better than Final Fantasy.
>>
>>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.

Why does Square-Enix hate handhelds in the west? They give us garbage games like theatrythm, bravely default, FFX/FFX-2 HD, the worst kingdom hearts game and shovelware they publish only.

Meanwhile every DQ remake and DQM game is JP only, type-0 shits on the vita and goes to the xbone and ps4 and most of their old games aren't up on the eshop or psn.

Remember when the DS got literally every DQ and SE developed game localized and PSP had fucking dissidia and crisis core along with almost every SE developed game localized?

>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.

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.

Its literally someone in the Square side. Because everyone else has stated they want to support the western release of Dragon Quest.

Except the Square side which is remaining mute on the subject.

Yet they have the final say on all game releases. Square or Enix.

>comparing a turn based RPG to chess

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.

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.

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

Probably not.

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.

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!

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.

There is absolutely no point to being a vegan.

Give me one good defense for being a vegan.

"I don't want to hurt an animal."

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.

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.

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.
