>another Monster collecting game
Pokemon is too dull for me as it is. I read that the kids in Japan who like this like it because old people aren't playing it too like Pokemon. As someone who loved Gen 3 and thinks its the best aside from 2 and 5, I barely got to gym 3 in Omega Ruby before I got bored and haven't played since. I thought it was a fine remake despite the reported small changes but I just have lost that spark in me that made Pokemon fun. Gen 5 was a treat because of how simple it was. For how many people got in to X and Y apparently, I just felt like it was the most bland yet
The only monster collector I'd buy in a heart beat is if Square stopped being shit and brought us the Dragon Quest Monsters GB remakes on 3DS, but that will never happen because we live in the worst timeline so, yeah
Picked it up tonight along with a jibanyan mask and cheeksqueak mask (not pictured) . Haven't played it tho, still occupied with triforce heros.
the people who spammed those shitty false flag about it being a pokemon killer are the ones jubilating in this thread, despite 77 being what everybody expected, above mediocre, but not that great.. neo/v/ is so predictable.
the nintendo hate sect would shit on it even at 89. You will see a thread today with someone posting the worst review and say something like "I am done with nintendo". before reposting his Gamespot list of "failure of the year".
I can't imagine how pathetic you have to be to jump on a fucking kid's craze as an adult.
I could understand pokemon to an extent. It was pathetic retards trying to recapture their youth with a garbage JRPG containing no story and colorful monsters.
But this? You have no connection to it. You have no excuse for liking it, there's no nostalgia goggle bullshit, it's just a dull children's game.
Here is your reply and picture.
Save it, it's all yours.
Guys, I would dismiss this kind of aggressive, contrarian stuff as shitposting, but honestly YW is blowing up with kids that are like 4th grade and under here. This isn't even middle school-targeted stuff, this is genuinely aimed at early elementary schoolers. There's nothing here for you. It's a cash-in on a pokeclone with a catchy theme.
I'm not that dude. Seriously, I live and work here near Hakodate in Hokkaido. I teach at five elementary schools and three middle schools. Young kids really love it, but liking it by middle school is considered kind of strange unless you're a girl who thinks the yokai are really cute.
>Viz advertised this as the Pokemon Killer
>NoA mass-marketed this over Wooly World, PMD, or Xenoblade
And may it sell worse than Codename Steam too.
Really hoping people get fired over this trainwreck.
lucky. i'd love to see pics of the masks
looks like someone's being haunted by the dick-sucking yo-kai :3
Why would anyone want Yokai Watch to perform bad over here? What's to gain?
If it does well then that gives the impression that the Nintendo fanbase wants these kind of games the most so I'll be all they market.
Just think if XCX sold extremely well, NoA would think wow people really want these core gaming experiences and then they'd make an effort to actually market those kind of games more. But no, people just buy kiddy colourful mascot games & thats the reason why Nintendo America is a shithole because people are spending money on the wrong shit.
It's not out of desire to see it fail, it's out of how obviously it was gonna fail.
>marketing far outweighs what other select Nintendo games this era have or had
>Kimishima looms at the fucked marketing:sales ratio
>starts firing some asses at NoA for mismanaging funds and priorities
>NoA has a chance of getting competent people
This is my dream.
Because some people don't want other people to be happy.
There's a reason NoA is constantly targeting 5-12 year old children. Becuae games targeted at those demographics is what sells the most to Nintendo fans in North America. It just gives the impression that NoA should target this demographic even more. Next time you moan that all NoA does is target 5-12 year olds its became some saddo 20-30 year old like above buys a ton of merchandise aimed at children.
>NoA has to fire people
>Won't fire any women, transgender, SJW, social-media-savvy types
>End up firing most white males knowing they will never have the same support if they were to launch a social media campaign against Nintendo
>NoA becomes even MORE dominated by SJW scum
Yeah, sounds like a great dream!
Are you kidding? 77 is amazing.
Review scores, from best to worst:
Less than 15: Legendarily shitty, max laughs.
86-95 Probably paid reviews (i.e. terrible), but with a small chance of being amazing
15-26 So bad that it's amusing
25-36 So bad that it might be a little funny
36-45 Terrible, but honest
96-100 Guaranteed paid reviews, complete dogshit, and dishonest to boot
I'll make a graph
You bring up another great point.
>Japan makes a commercial
>UK uses same commercial
>same sales as Japan
>US, a completely larger region, makes their own memetastic commercial
>sells the same amount as UK and Japan
>ended up wasting money and effort for the same result
How do you fuck that up so hard?
>More like SUICIDE Watch!
you win this round.
was not expecting that laugh.
I'll post them tomorrow if this is still up, or another is posted. The masks are pretty big, similar to the majora's mask paper mask but not as nice quality. The jibanyan one is nice, the cheeksqueak one literally looks like a ball sack
Christ, I still remember the Splatoon threads with trolls out of the woodwork bashing the shit out of it despite having a good score.
Splatoon had mostly meh scores. But mostly because there was hardly anything there at the start. Hell a few sites held off reviews because they wanted to wait a couple of updates.
Ok look at this scenario
WiiU is a failure, Nintendo makes NX as some console/mobile compromise
Assume it's also a failure (this will take 4+ years).
With the dying console market and portable market in Japan, and the failures of both WiiU and NX creating huge losses (that can't be compensated with 3DS profits), Nintendo decides to fold their hardware and become purely a third party software developer.
What this means is Nintendo IPs on non Nintendo consoles. Imagine. Mario and Zelda on PS4, Metroid on XBox, etc... Instead of buying shitty Nintendo hardware for just a couple first party titles, the Nintendo audience will flock to other consoles and give them a healthy boost. 3rd party developers as well will move on to other pastures (mostly Playstation as far as Japan is concerned).
Under the new reign of king tyrant Sony, video game audiences are unified on one of two consoles. With a new, untapped audience tuning into sony consoles, 3rd party developers will see more sales, and game development will flourish, thrusting us into a new golden age!
Of course that's never gonna happen. The real Nintendo are stubborn motherfuckers. They'd sooner go down and take the entire ship and industry with them then turn to pure software development. Heck, they'd probably go pure mobile before considering making games for other consoles. So no, those fuckers are ok with destroying the games industry as long as they get their little cash cow franchises.
I can almost guarantee there will be a Yo-Kai thread tomorrow.
You can get 3DS's cheap as fuck these days so I'd say do it. Heck even buy a 2DS if you just want to play a handful of games.
So instead of buying one console for Nintendo games you have to buy 2? sounds great. I sure love paid exclusives. Oh and Nintendo fans aren't going to magically buy those third party games that never interested them
You know one of the reasons why Nintendo is able to make their games great is because they have better understanding of their own tech. They are able to push it to the limit while other developers can't even make a game not crash. You might be crying over Nintendo's cheapness but honestly Nintendo was able to do more with the Wii U than nearly every other developer did with the fucking PS4 and Xbox One.
Those were just hypothetical, but I assume Xbox will die off too eventually, it's just a matter of time.
And no, Nintendo's audience will move on to other games as well. With its brand weakened, Nintendo will be forced to share space with other games rather than being its own things. Eventually with enough time and exposure, people will start trying new things and moving on.
Only for it and most games on it to sell like hot trash. I don't care what Nintendo do, their presence is poisonous to the market. Sacrificing a little artistic integrity for everyone to survive is worth it.
But it isn't hypothetical,in this day and age paid 3rd party exclusives are the focus and exclusive content such as multiplayer maps and extra stories are more rampant than ever. Xbox will never die as long as the USA exists and you should never want a monopoly to exist
White for days, though Red's introduction has a better opening scene
Aye. It wouldn't make sense to release the game when the anime and advertising hasn't been put into place yet. Oh well. I'll enjoy watching you guys talk about it here on /v/.
Just promise that in 2016 you'll still want to talk about it, alright? ...Please?
See that's the thing. I'm not sure how much people know it but video games are doing like shit right now, especially in Japan. Over there, 9 of the top 10 sellers are likely to be 3DS games or mainline franchises like Mario and Pokemon.
I don't have anything against their games, but allowing the PS4 to do badly there would be far more harmful to the industry as a whole than having Nintendo's hardware fail. Because, like you said, Nintendo are their own little buble. They rely mostly on first party titles. Nintendo have alienated most 3rd party publishers repeatedly; the couple that get a shit ton of sales, like Monster Hunter or Yokai Watch, do great, but other medium to small sized developers often perform poorly. Xenoblade X did like trash there, let's not even talk about Platinum's sales, and I expect SMTxFE to perform like crap as well. No one's gonna buy a Nintendo platform for those games, they buy it for Nintendo mainline releases and everything else is a bonus.
So what if Nintendo mainline releases were confined to PS4? People would buy a lot more of those, and consequentially other games would sell better and flourish too. And that's why I'm pushing the narrative of Nintendo's hardware having to die, because their "bubble" has created a separation in consumers that is ultimately harmful to the industry as a whole. There's no reason Nintendo IPs couldn't be on other consoles (when they're not completely relying on a trashy gimmick for the most part).
Of course, Nintendo are a business. They'll do what's profitable to them and ignore the bigger picture till the bitter end; why else would they be trying to move on to mobile right now? And if their IPs move to mobile, it'll be even more harmful for everyone else, and provide more incentives to abandon games development for mobile game development.
Well ok then, they'll just be greedy and choose whichever console is guaranteed to sell more in their home market, and we all know it is.
Anyone figured out the AI-types of attitudes yet. So far a few sites got the translated ones.
Stiff: Less likely to Loaf around
Careful: Excels at guarding so it will take the brunt of the damage for your team to not get hit.
Rough: Focus on attacking
Collected: Will guard a lot
Carefree: More likely to loaf around
Grouchy: Focus on attacking
Serious: Less likely to Loaf around
Logical: More likely to use techniques
Twisted: Use inspirit more
Gentle: like to heal
Tender: like to heal
Helpful: Use inspiriting to support team
Devoted: Use inspiriting to support team
Cruel: Use inspirit more
Brainy: More likely to use techniques
Attitudes of yo-kai can be changed by certain books that you will find on your journey so go ahead and experiment to see which yo-kai goes best with which attitude.
Once all of them are found, the attitude set should be updated
You do know Japan just doesn't give a fuck about consoles right? Nintendo more or less is the thing holding Japan from going completely into mobile. Nintendo moving to say Sony isn't good for Nintendo nor really good for gaming at large. You seem to one of those "Nintendo makes cheap hardware so they suck. Think if they make something on actually good hardware!" Maybe you are too young but Nintendo works with the idea of "Lateral Thinking with Withered Technology" which means that use what is known. Look at how badly Sony did with the PS3. No one understood the fucking Cell even if it was the most powerful system on the market. And right now nearly every game on both PS4 and Xbox One are also on PC. And since PC is getting bigger in the west it makes me wonder why anyone fucking gets a console in the first place.
oh fug I forgot to add wind for elemental weakness
I'm going to update the attitude one later too as well as the recommended yo-kai
thanks for finding the translation
There must have been a Yo-Kai haunting you.
I never even said Nintendo sucked or anything, I just think their current business decisions are harmful for everyone.
Also I'm no Sony apologist. If Microsoft or PCs were the dominating brand worldwide I'd cite them instead but they're not. I'm just looking at the most realistic option.
So what, are you telling me that if Nintendo IPs moved to non-Nintendo platforms, people would just up and abandon them? That's ridiculous.
As for Yokai Watch, it's just another level 5 cash cow. In 2 years, they'll dispose of its trashed corpse with a shiny new IP they can milk merchandise for kids and toddlers out of.
At least we got this cutie.
>As for Yokai Watch, it's just another level 5 cash cow. In 2 years, they'll dispose of its trashed corpse with a shiny new IP they can milk merchandise for kids and toddlers out of.
As long as it's fun to play.
Only meme masters, shills and drones said it would be a huge success and becomes a Pokémon Killer.
Having said that the score ain't bad so everything's fine. Personally I haven't seen another game which is that unappealing to me in a long time.
>literally any yo-kai waifu is purer than her
Questionable. Remember, Insomni did make everyone in Nate's class insomniac.
Why the fuck do you people care what others play? I play shit like pokemon or YW, but I also play "mature and edgy" stuff like Dead Space.
Just go play whatever you want and let other people enjoy their shit.
But seeing how much men and women she uh, 'inspirited,' do you think it will be your child?
For anyone playing/rushing through the game, how long did it take you to complete the story?
>Only meme masters, shills and drones said it would be a huge success and becomes a Pokémon Killer.
It is currently more popular than Pokémon in Japan. I agree that it had way less chances to succeed in the west due to the "darker" theme and the cultural references but saying it would go big wasn't that stupid of a claim
I didn't rush through my first play through but it took me around a week to finish
the second one took shorter
Amerifats tend to be insecure
Also let's not forget
>If I don't like a game and it gets good reviews, they got paid.
>If I don't like a game and it gets bad reviews then those are honest, insightful professional reviews.
I feel as though that comic would have been funnier if they actually displayed it better. It looks like garbage (by which I mean the presentation overall...the drawings themselves are fine).
it is a game for Japanese 6 year old kids.
Pokemon too, but Pokemon has a combat system that can be made complex to the point autists enjoy it in online battles.
Yokai Watch has shit tier combat.
alright final edit before I make another chart
feel free to edit or add info
h-hope I helped some of you out there
I now have all 5 of your revisions in my collection. Thank you.
are you fags enjoying it so far?
I'm going to pick mine up on the store now
i met a youkai in real life who said "the game isn't out in europe until 2016" and he gave me this medal
Pokemon still sells more.
So unless everybody just watches the animu instead of playing the games Pokemon is still bigger.
Yokai Watch is still big though. Its the closest to an actual competitor.
>Get physical Fatal Frame V with both US and JP costumes
>Get Wooly World 4 months before US
>Get New 3DS without having it be bundled with a shitty game in an LE bundle
> >>315634259 as well
>Xseed gives you exclusive fucking LEs too
>boo hoo youkai watch won't be out before murica like everything else this year
You fuckers have been getting treated like kings this year, I have no more sympathy.
>let me bring a completely unrelated company into what is mostly a Nintendo games centric argument
>Let me completely throw the point out the window about EU getting lots of shit US isn't this year then proceed to act like the industry is still oppressing me!
Sorry about your mental retardation :)
a lot of these items for fusion seem to take place after the main game. Is there any way to collect them early?
Maybe you could also talk about the bullshit gachapon/Crank-a-kai machine mechanics, how rewards are preset and whatnot?
You are a complete moron so disconnected from reality that you can easily be diagnosed with a mental illness. Do you really think Nintendo going third party is going to make things better? Yeah, because that certainly worked for Sega, right? We dont get new Jet Set Radio or a Altered Beast on the Xbox, we just get Sonic and the occasional Nights game. And you think Nintendo would fare any better? Fuck, you're an idiot.
ok last update for a long time
I'm burnt out for now
I'll make a legendary guide sometime soon but not today
>tfw Level-5 is one of few games to put efforts in penalizing those that abuse time of day.
Kinda reminds me of Resetti from Animal Crossing, before he became an option in the newer games.
USE X TO FAST FORWARD BATTLES
be a nigga for me and someone add that in there
70-something scores are usually better than high 90s which are reserved for meme games; games that capitalize on what's cool right now, or are derivative of good popular games, and latest AAA shits that people keep gobbling up.
This is a Japanese game, that has been out for a while and is not yet popular in the West, of course it gets lower scores. But you would be a moron to think "pro" Western game reviewers have good taste.
I wish they kept the name Masamune
but sheen means to shine
absorption suprisinly isn't all that OP in the game in general. I'd thought being able to drain HP would make yo-kai live longer, but the HP gained back is absolute shit unless your Moskevil with good physical attack
Why the fuck do you get defensive about it when people call you a manchild over it?
Oh goody you played a children's game in between Dead Space, how precious. If you really didn't care you'd actually be playing those shitty kids games instead of trying not to look like an sad adult playing kiddy games.
Do you really think the average westerner will be able to pronounce "youkai" other than "Ukay" ?
90% of the Touhou fanbase misspronounces it, now imagine the same thing but with kids.
How retarded you have to be to not understand why they wrote it "Yo-kai" for the western audience ?
And more importantly, how autistic you have to be to give a shit about it, especially since it makes kids pronouce it correctly in the first place.
Doesn't look like anybody else did it, so I got your back, bro.
y'know, that's a very good question. So far I've seen people talk n' shitpost about it, but I've yet to see an anon's true feeling of playing it to the end (or at least to the main story ending).
about an hour in, I like it, but I liked the anime, and I'm pretty easily amused in-general.
The RPG mechanics are pretty simple and seems to just go down to using whatever the fuck you want and doing minigames, but supposedly the postgame stuff will fuck up your shit unless you tryhard. I need more time to form an opinion.
>implying a 50 isn't average
You're all either retarded or pretending to be
a comedy slice of life JRPG about a boy able to see ghosts causing daily life problems and him busting them away with the help of other ghosts.
Battles are real-time rather than turn-based, though you have limited control of your party members.
Outside of the battles, how similar would you say this is to Inazuma Eleven?
Every time I'm reminded that we are not getting those Dragon Monster remake for the 3ds, I lose about 1/4 of my life expectancy.
