CanisWolfred commented on Review: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PlayStation 4):

@ShogunRok - How would you compare it to Crisis Core? That's the benchmark I'm using.

Otherwise, this sounds great to me. I don't personally hold the FF games to high standards in story-telling (But then again, I still find it hard to believe FF13 is considered pompous, yet BioShock Infinite is held as grand storytelling in gaming...). So long as there's more gameplay than story, and the gameplay is good fun, which your review seems to emphasize at every corner, I'll be fine.

@keyser_soze No, you use your mana cards to "buy" cards, which you use to build a deck, which each do their own things and each have their own point values once the main point pool has been emptied (which you earn by utilizing your deck - destroying monster cards (including the infinitely respawning Heretic, which is special), playing certain cards, or by earning trophies (depending on the rules)), then the point values of each deck as well as the points earned from the pool as totalled. Whoever has the most points wins. Then all the cards go back into the main deck and you start from scratch yet again.

But Diablo 3's gonna suck up most of my time. My holiday weekend extends all the way to Thursday, though. :)



CanisWolfred commented on Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Bringing...:

This is easily the best card game I've ever played. I don't think I'll double dip, though. Spent over $20 on the iPad version already after the expansions...

Just so everyone knows: This is a deck builder. It's less about "Pay to win" and more about resource management. To keep it short, there's a main pool of cards everyone can take from (only 7 are available at a time, including monster cards that require an attack resource, which give special rewards, except for 3 resource-related cards that are always available) and everyone starts with the same 10 cards - 8 apprentices (mana cards for gaining cards, including better mana cards) and two militia cards (for your attack). The goal is to build your deck from pool (whilst also gaining points from a point pool) and whoever has the most points + best cards (denoted by a little symbol in the corner of each card) wins the game. It's a whole different ball game from a TCG and I love it.

Also, the AI can be stupid. Unless I'm just really good. I've only played two online games and won both, so there's a possibility...



CanisWolfred commented on Review: Tales of Xillia 2 (PlayStation 3):

I'll likely pick this up in October. However...I doubt I'll ever play it. Xillia sucked and I'll probably never finish it. It's too long a game to simply look for the cutscenes, too....which is all a shame, since it sounds like this'd be a lot better. :(

@Heavyman99 Atlus never had a European publishing branch until very recently, when they became a part of Sega. Don't blame them for things they couldn't prevent. If you want to be mad at anybody, be mad at Ghostlight. They published most of your Atlus/Index games, they were the ones who took forever to get them out.

@odd69 Did you even play it for more than 5 seconds before you said that? There's hardly any similarities between the two. Disregarding the enormous differences between their gameplay, they take their stories in completely directions. Not to mention Metro's based on a book that was published in 2005.

I still need to know way more about WiLD before I get excited. I'm not even sure exactly what you're supposed to do in that game, for one thing...and I want to know how prevelant those share features they're planning will be (the fact that they're planning them at all has me worried enough).



CanisWolfred commented on Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate...:

@rastamadeus Um...actually, yes, adding an expansion to a full game does make it more expensive. This isn't fairytale land where games get made with the wave of a magic wand. The base game still goes for $30 on the PS3. The upgrades + a full expansion certainly warrants a return to full price. Not to mention they'll be patching in new content for free later down the line.

Not saying you gotta pay it - I'm not paying full price for it, but only because I don't care about most of PS4-exclusive editions while UEE is also on PS3 for $20 less, albeit with no patch support. But that doesn't mean it doesn't have a good reason to be priced the way it is.



CanisWolfred commented on Gamescom 2014: PS4 Exclusive WiLD Looks Wacky,...:

Oh wow, this game looks really cool, maybe now there'll be more than two exclusives for the PS4 I actually want-

"On the tech side, because WiLD is created exclusively for PlayStation 4, the game will use the full power of the console and all its crazy sharing capabilities"

^What world do you live in? Assassin's Creed has been a shameless cashgrab since Brotherhood.

That said, I approve of more pirate-y action. Considering how bland Unity looks, this gives me more reason to stay with the PS3 a while longer.
