1,981HallowMoonshadowTue 27th Jul 2021 Ahh no worries @RogerRoger... I'm sure you'll find something you really enjoy to review in due time! I'll just have to read your Shenmue 2 review that I missed in the meantime that you loved... Or did you?! Ralizah wrote: That's a new feature. Instead of people's work getting the credit it deserves, I added a function that just randomly redirects them to one of my reviews! Nah. Arugula had his account nuked recently. I'm in the process of fixing the Directory now. Barring any catastrophic life events, expect it to be back up before the end of the month. I'll make an announcement when it is. I fixed that link now, btw. Well seeing as I just saw your post saying you've fixed all the links now you deserve to put your feet up! I can't imagine that being anything other then an absolute nightmare. You're a star Ral! If anyone else had created this topic it'd be totally anarchy no doubt. Seriously?! Arugula's gone? ... The impressions piece I'm working on was in part for Arugula cus he asked about it in the recommendation thread and I'd only played some of the opening whilst he was still here 😯 Ralizah wrote: MonHun proper sells several millions of units over there, but MH Stories on 3DS couldn't crack 500,000 worldwide. So this sequel managed to double its lifetime sales within a week of release, lol. Oh... Oh that's especially good then. That's still really surprising it didn't do all that well in japan. Wasn't around the same time when Yo-Kai Watch or Pokémon released was it? Only reason I can really think of myself wih their being some serious market saturation or unfortunate timing. Ralizah wrote: Hopefully, but I doubt it. Capcom is already providing a roadmap for what monsties it's adding to the game, and I didn't see my man Tetsucabra on the list. I just don't understand why he's in the game at all if you can't hatch one. They already have the full 3D model for it. Huh... That is rather a strange thing to do. If it was only in a cutsceme or something I'd understand why it wasn't but seeing as you can fight them already... Yeah... Odd.

Atlus has been gradually revealing the game's roster over time. That, alongside a drip feed of trailers and news about the game keeps it in peoples' minds. I haven't played either SMT IV so I didn't know that. Sounds about right for Mara And ooh that's cool! Some nice trailers there. I don't think I've seen mermaid before in an SMT title. Noticed angel got changed. Not sure how to feel about that... I'm so used to the typical BDSM looking design that the new one looks a little off. Kinda sorta reminds me of the robot angels from Tenant's run of Doctor Who with the space Titanic in Ralizah wrote: Sounds great. Looking forward to it! I'll be relying more heavily on impressions pieces myself. I've noticed that my habits as a gamer don't properly align with my reviewing style. I tend to only discuss games after thoroughly completing them, which can mean beating them multiple times in order to see all in-game content if they're on the shorter side and completing all of the side-content in longer games. What I tend to do with longer games (which make up a huge chunk of my library given my affinity for visual novels and JRPGs), however, is play them for a period of time (anywhere between 15 - 60 hours, generally) before sitting them down and moving on to other games. It can be months or even years before I'll return to and complete a given game after doing this. So I've decided to lean more on impressions pieces for long games. If I end up returning to a game and beating it, then I'll craft a fuller, more complete review of it, but this way my feelings about games I end up not returning to for a long period of time will still be documented. They'll also give me a solid foundation on which to craft a finished piece about a game. Well I hope it works out well for the both of us to help us review our longer winded games! 😄 I've already spent 20+ hours just getting past this first arc and with 2 DLC add-ons (One being a 50 floor roguelike dungeon crawler experience, the other a story dlc) to go through as well as god knows how many other chspters for the main gamr... I might take even longer then Divinity Original Sin II with this CRPG currently under my belt! Previously known as Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy . . .
