Hey Nintendo, PlatinumGames wants The Wonderful 101 on Switch

Kostas

5 hours ago

@jonathanharding-rath I do not have my Switch yet so i have no idea how good Xeno 2 is compared to X but i doubt it is as good as X for my personal taste. I say this because Xeno 2 has the same design philosophy as the first Xenoblade Chronicles and that in itself is reason enough to believe that X is the superior game for me. We shall see though. I love every Xeno game so far so i expect nothing less from Xeno 2.

Everyone wants the Wonderfull 101 on the Switch even if they don't know it. What about Xenoblade Chronicles X as well? That is my favourite Xeno game so far, yes better than Xenogears even.

@paradoxequinox Tell me about it. All my smartphones so far have been phablet size except my very first one. This time however my next device is going to be small or small-ish. The target for me will be one handed use and for my hands that means a 5" or less.

Between this, Titan Quest, Darkest Dungeon and Wasteland 2 the switch will not be short on any W-RPG games because we already knew it was/is going to be a J-RPG powerhouse. I already know where to get Pillars 2. It is just a perfect fit for the system.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite flops

Kostas

3 months ago

What did you expect? The game has a lot of strange choices and looks like it is unfinished and unpolished. Mechanically speaking it is head and shoulders above the previous game but i find the older game more fun due to character selection and the mayhem. I mean really, no X-men? I know there is an issue with the license and all but come on man, it is MARVEL we are talking about here and you can not do MARVEL without a choice selection of X-men going about.

@timson72 Exactly. Assassins Fist is the best video game to movie adaptation to date bar none. The only other movie which has captured the spirit of the video game it was based on is of course Silent Hill.

It is totally bonkers that a movie on street fighting became the best against so many others that have all the groundwork set up ready for some great movies. Even my sister has seen Assassins fist and trust me she does not watch this kind of content.

@Baihu1983 For some reason Atlus games are always title and console for the most part. Very few games over the past 30 years or so have seen releases outside of their original platform. Do not know why is that.

Just look at that bonkers list of titles developed and/or published by Atlus and you will see no same title between platforms.

I read something about Xenosaga trilogy HD for the Switch and i have to be honest that i am more excited that this is true than any Dark Souls title. Not to say that a Dark Souls title is not wanted by me, on the contrary, but the Xenosaga series is stuck on the PS2 and it is high time we see it into the system that features the modern Xeno series.

This game along Titan Quest for the machine speak much louder than anything else on the system (yes even Doom and Wolvenstein 2) as to how developers view it. Nintendo always had really powerful Japan support for the portable systems but not Western studios. This time thinks seem to come around.

That just gets to show that Nvidia and Nintendo partnership is more than just a fluke and it will be a very good and prosperous one for the years to come.

Two things Nintendo has done the past years that have blown my mind. First the appearance of Cloud in Smash Bros which i still can not believe how it is real and second this partnership when everyone has gone with the AMD boat.

Atlus confirms Shin Megami Tensei 5 is coming to Switch in the west

Kostas

5 months ago

@Kysen For me goes the absolute opposite. I love both series but the main line SMT is something else entirely. It is a very personal experience, one that has mainly solitude, philosophy and religion in its core spiced up with a very hardcore minimalist approach.

Persona games are very thick in story and exposition which is something i like but they focus mostly on the lives of the people you play around with. In SMT it is you and only you. You will be the one to shape a new world...or not. The experience is inherently very dark in both presentation and atmosphere. Where Persona games give you everything on a silver platter the SMT main line games require you to use your own imagination, beliefs and whatnot into its concept.

For me SMT is a much deeper experience in more ways than just gameplay. Very much like the Soulsborne games.

For me main line Shine Megami Tensei is an absolute system seller. Just like Persona 5 is for a PS4 console. I love both main line and spin-off but i am more of a proper main line SMT kind of guy. Loved 2, loved 3, loved 4 and i have no doubt in my mind that 5 is going to be the same.

@WhiteUmbrella Grating or not i can play my switch in my night shifts, on the toilet, sleeping over a friend/family and even normally at home when the TV is already "taken" and it does this feature a hell of a lot better than the WiiU ever could and that same feature was a seller for me as well.

Just because you do not find a use for it does not mean we do not. Different needs mate. Good to have options to cover for all don't you think?

@mega-gazz The wiiU had neither Zelda nor Mario within 8 months of its release. Things would have been much different for it if they did release it.

At the same time nintendo just did not promote and advertise the thing at all. They just left it there hoping that the Wii fame would have been enough to carry it...but no.

Kostas

I still think that the GC controller is the best one. I would change very few things about it but in total it is the most fitting, the easiest, the most comfortable controller i have ever had the pleasure of holding.

The only things i would change about it is add a second Z button, increase the size of the D-pad and add a carbon copy of the normal analog stick into the C-stick. That is it, perfect controller right there.

The whole gunplay of this game was superb and the A.I. was also a factor for such fun. For me however the feel of the shotgun is second only to Crysis 2 shotgun.
