Community,
  • pekot

    I really liked soul sacrfice demo
    loved it more than MH

    • Azoz

      Me too.
      I played the demo for 8 hours and I still want more :)

    • Kefkiroth

      Definitely. It has a great combat system, now all it needs in the full game is the amount of content MonHun has for single-player. Hopefully the story is long.

    • Gustavo Rosario

      My only gripe is I’m a huge armor aficionado. I wish I had a game with the leveling and skills of Soul Sacrifice and the armor of Monster Hunter. The closest I get is Dark Souls which I already beat twice and am working on my third playthrough. T_T

  • Locksus

    Just got FE: A yesterday and oh man, it’s great. I’ve yet to decide who will become my waifu.

    • Tetsu

      What is FE: A short for?

      • Pyrofrost

        Fire Emblem: Awakening

      • Locksus

        Ah, sorry! @pyrofrost:disqus beat me to it. Yeah, it’s Fire Emblem

  • Pyrofrost

    So, what are you guys playing this weekend?

    I’m still in Yakuza 5, and it’s really an amazing game. It’s also really big in comparison to the previous games. I just started Haruka’s chapter ^_^

    ***Edit: Additional info about Haruka’s story for those who would like to know.
    They set up the rhythm game aspect of her chapter really well. Sega took into consideration that the primary audience playing Yakuza aren’t rhythm game experts. So it’s set up in a manner that doesn’t seem to get as difficult as the karaoke can get. At least, that’s how it is for now. It doesn’t hold your hand, and the difficulty does gradually increase; however, Sega did a great job with gradually leading the player in, and allowing the player learn.

    • Azuardo

      Working on unlocking characters and outfits in Resi 6, and slowly getting through Enslaved. May do more characters’ stories in BlazBlue CSII Extend too…

      How long is each character’s chapter in Yakuza 5 roughly?

      • Pyrofrost

        Really, it depends on how you want to play. If you just want to blow through doing nothing but story, you can; but you will probably make the game harder on yourself by doing so.
        Personally I’ve been doing tons of sub events, side quests, mini-games, and etc.After a week of play, I’ve only finished two character stories.

        The way it’s set up is each character is given a story with 4 chapters, then everyone gets together for a “final chapter” climax. However, it seems that Haruka and Akiyama’s story is combined. So the basic story set-up is Kiryu (1-4) / Taiga (1-4) / Sawamura~Akiyama (1-4) / Tatsuo (1-4) …… for story reasons everyone ends up together for the “final chapter” climax. It’s not a bad set up, and so far it has been a truly rich experience.

        • Azuardo

          Sounds good. Man, the sooner they release this here the better.

          • Pyrofrost

            Agreed sir, and I will be buying it as well when it’s released here. It’s a much bigger game than the previous ones though. So I can see the localization process taking longer.

            I also made an edit to my OP about Haruka’s story if you wish to check it out.

            • Azuardo

              Thanks for the info. I played the demo and there seemed to be some sweet gruesome finishing moves.

      • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

        What platform are you playing Resi 6 on, been dying to get a game in with gematsu readers. I’m on PS3 myself.

        • Azuardo

          PS3 too :) Add me if you like (Azuardo). I’ve got all the characters and costumes in Mercs now. Were you after campaign co-op or Mercs? I’ll try to make time if you want to squeeze something in some time. Note that I only played through the campaign on amateur to get the story, so I dunno if I’m really any good when it comes to harder difficulties XD

    • Awnye

      Holy sh!t I just found my avatar twin

      Haruka ftw

      • Pyrofrost

        haha, I see ^_^
        Haruka ftw indeed!!!

    • Tac-Mex

      Barkley Shut up and Jam Gaiden

      • Haku_Luvs_You

        OMG You reminded me I need to play that. Best RPG ever made…. At least best free RPG ever made >_>

    • Haku_Luvs_You

      Well I picked up a 3ds xl so some major Soul Hackers. I also picked up Injustice today, and was going to download the Soul Sac demo, but forgot my Vita at my dorm when I came home.

      • jujubee88

        SS demo is good. If you like a meaty JRPG skill system and the finess on the monhun mechanics, you will probably like the game.

        • Haku_Luvs_You

          Well it’s my dead week at college, and I have some pretty easy finals. So I should be able to find time to play it. Is there multiplayer on the demo? I promised I would play with ShinAsura if there was :)

          • Kefkiroth

            There is multiplayer, ad-hoc and online. It’s probably the meatiest demo I’ve ever played.

      • Bryce Blalex Douglas

        Tell me how Injustice is definitely want to pick it up soon.

        • Haku_Luvs_You

          Very different for me. I’m used to the Street Fighter quarter circle punch ways of playing fighters. I’ve never played a Mortal Kombat, but it seems very much like that. The story seems interesting enough, and the characters are awesome! Very solid fighter, and seems to be addicting with a leveling system and many challenges and unlockables. I’ll let you know more next week when I’m farther along :)

          • Bryce Blalex Douglas

            Sounds great then Probably definitely have to pick this up.

    • almostautumn

      Just got the platinum in Guacamelee, so probably going tof Sly 2 HD finally; favorite platformer series, so I’m happy to replay it slowly.
      Also, might just do another playthrough of No More Heroes 2 or Killer 7. Pretty much fully obsessed toward Killer Is Dead these days, so I might just have to get some Suda goodness in.

      Oh, and still chipping away at Senran Kagura. Just got to the fourth school so I’m pretty close.

    • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

      I’ve completed Atelier Ayesha and I’m now grinding out the remaining trophies. I’ve never seen a game with so many difficult end-game bosses. I’ve taken out probably all the alt bosses except for the ones unlocked at the end. I’m actually pretty stumped and I’m happy about that, as I tend to find RPGs really easy.

      • DichaTesoro

        I’m on my second playthrough of Ayesha and hoping that I can defeat some of the end bosses with my leveled up equipment…they made me cry the fist time around. Are you getting all the endings then? I may just finish this one, Keith’s ending, and move on to another game.

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          I aim to platinum Atelier Ayesha so I’ll be getting as much endings as I can with this save file, then rinse/repeat for Linca/Keith.

    • new_tradition

      Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha vs the Soulless Army for PS2.

      I got it earlier this week, but I only had one sit through with it so far (it was a 10+ hour sit through, though xD)

      • PrinceHeir

        need to start on that as well!!!

        • new_tradition

          Definitely! I tried to console myself that the two games were stand alone and I could ignore this one, but I’m so glad I bought this when it got a reprint. It’s awesome ^^

          But having played “Raidou vs King Abbadon” first (I didn’t beat it though; got to the last dungeon, I think >.<), I noticed a few differences.

          I don't know if this will change as I play, but you can only have one demon in battle with Raidou. You could have 2 in the second game right away, so I didn't like that restriction, but it hasn't really ruined the experience.

          One thing though-I feel my depth perception is off (if that's the word for it). I'll have Raidou standing right next to an enemy to attack, and apparently his angle is off by just enough that he actually doesn't hit them, lol. I don't recall this in the second game, so I'm guessing this might a first game issue kind of thing that gets fixed for the second game.

          I guess graphics were a bit more stiff (plus the amusing in-battle gameplay where Raidou can actually stand IN his larger demon, lol).

          I did like the more straight forward sidequests ala Case Files in the second game.

          But yeah! I'm really enjoying this game. I got to the end of Episode 2, and already there was a surprise plot twist I didn't see coming O.O

          • PrinceHeir

            ohh i see :D

            they seem to improve alot :)

            the Raidou 2 i have it for so long(around 2010) along with plushie and i haven’t played it that much XD

            i really need to start playing it soon!!!!

            Raidou is badass!!!!!

            also i saw an article that Raidou makes an appearance to Soul Hackers!!!

            http://gematsu.com/2012/08/raidou-kuzunoha-appears-in-3ds-devil-summoner

    • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

      ill be playing Pandora’s Tower this weekend
      im going for a bad ending first so no rush here

    • PrinceHeir

      just finished Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge Ayane Chapter Challenge :D

      all’s S and A ranks :)

      will play Devil Summoner Soul Hackers today ^^

      • Haku_Luvs_You

        What level are you in Soul Hackers? And what Demons do you use?

        • PrinceHeir

          im gonna start just now XD

          • Haku_Luvs_You

            XD alright tell me what you think of it then. Personally I think it is very fun, but certainly shows it’s age. Good luck, it’s also pretty hard.

            • PrinceHeir

              okay thanks :D

      • Azuardo

        What do you have to do to unlock Kasumi? Is it gonna be stupidly tough for a noob? :/

        • PrinceHeir

          to unlock Ayane in NG3RE is just finish the game in any difficulty.

          it will also unlock Kasumi and Momiji as well :P

          yeah i played it on Normal, Hard was stupid since you didn’t have access to most of your moves and those grabs are cheap as hell.

          fortunately there’s a karma glitch you can do at any scarab(Gold or Silver) at any time at any level.

          the only problem is that unlike Metal Gear Rising, your costumes and unlockables are only lock in one difficulty and not spread across difficulty.

          so you have to keep doing this in your difficulty you want.

          the game is fun, love the new moves, chapter challenges allows you to play Ayane, Momiji, Kasumi in Ryu’s levels from story.

          Ayane though has story levels if you play story mode in Ryu, and Momiji you’ll see her in the game.

          • Azuardo

            Oh for crying out loud. That costume difficulty locking is ridiculous. It’s just like the thing I’m pissed off with in Resi 6, where you can only use the costumes in Mercenaries and not in the story.

            So is there even ANY elaborating on just what on earth Kasumi was doing in NG2? Or are we just supposed to pretend we never saw her?

            • PrinceHeir

              yeah wtf they allowed it on RE5 with multiple costumes on singleplayer but not on RE6.

              so stupid!!!

              yeah they didn’t expand it unfortunately :(

              she doesn’t even have a story mode nor any cameo in t he main story line.

              though i haven’t played her in chapter challenge yet, but chapter challenge is just story mode, but allows you to play different character’s in Ryu’s stages.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      I’ll be finishing up the first Devil Summoner on the PS2. Grinding right now so I can get Beelzebub before I beat the game. =)

      • Eclipse

        Oh man, that Beelzebub fight was a fun challenge!

        You should do fine if you have a demon that knows ice spells, while Astral Burst will be a big help for clearing the crowds of demons accompanying Beelzebub.

        The one problem I had in the fight was when my demon got charmed/confused, they’d completely heal all of Beelzebub’s HP! That’s one of the main things to look out for, as well as the Mudo spells constantly being thrown around.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          Hmm, I need to snag a respectable ice demon then. I got Belial and Susano-O who can help out with Astral Burst, though.
          Thanks for the tips!! I rarely ever encounter anyone who’s played this game, so the conversation is appreciated. =)

          • Eclipse

            No problem! ^_^

            One thing I forgot to mention is that you don’t necessarily need an ice demon (Unless it has fire resist, because that makes a complete difference), because the infinite number of Ukobachs would definitely make quick work of your demon.

            The main way that I won that battle was by constantly using elemental bullets against the infinitely respawning Ukobach & Nebiros demons, then I would spam Astral Burst — Rinse and repeat. XD

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Hoping to finish AC3. Probably won’t happen. I’m not exactly far in. xD

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Korean version of Blade and Soul, finally

    • Bryce Blalex Douglas

      Still trying to finish Dark Souls before I move on to the rest of my backlog. Haven’t had a lot of time but slowly closing in on the end of it. About to go up against Seath the Scaleless so wish me luck!

      • Gustavo Rosario

        Just started my third play through going for the plat…I never get tired of this game. And good luck versus Seath and the Four Kings…stupid Four Kings.

        • Bryce Blalex Douglas

          lol took me like 3 tries but I destroyed those Four Kings lol

    • miyamoto

      Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNY1ESWl54g

      one of the best PS3 games ever!

    • MosquitoLemon

      Still Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, trying to finish all the missions, hahaha.

      • Tetsu

        I hope they come out with a new one, i played that one for about 70 hours, so many missions and unlocks.

        • MosquitoLemon

          Yeah, that’d be awesome, I’m surprised they haven’t announced one (though to be fair, they are focusing more on One Piece now).

          So far I hit 30 hours, but it feels like 100! That’s why I love these games, you can get a satisfying experience from just an hour a day, vs an RPG which you might need 2 or 3 hours to make headway.

    • Haruya

      I’ve been playing my “God of War” HD collection as of late. I always wanted to play these games and I could finally grab the HD collector’s pack. Already finished the first two games and “Chains of Olympus”, now going through my clean-up playthrough in “Ghost of Sparta”, then will move on to “God of War III”. Only god knows when I’ll be able to pick up “Ascension” though, but I’m not in a hurry. Too much Kratos for 1 month. :D

      After my God of War journey, I’m gonna start with “The Last Story”, since I just got it like a week ago for my Wii. It looks very promising.

    • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

      I started playing Etrian Odyssey IV this week and I’m now on the second labyrinth. I do love the EO games-they’re so addictive!

    • AdamBoy64

      I’m still working away on a ToS2 playthrough I started early last year. Basically I’m just doing it on the hardest settings available.

      But compared to other Tales games, that’s relatively easy. But still challenging enough to be fun, for sure.

  • Azuardo

    Finished Guacamelee this week, which was really damn good. Very fun and easy to play. Not made much progress in other games really.

    Goddamn, Helena’s RPD outfit in Resi 6 is sexy as hell, though! Why on earth don’t they let you use costumes in the campaign? -____-

    • Elvick

      I got the platinum pretty quickly in Guacamelee. Some of the mask pieces were a bear and I had some problems on hard… but I did it. Had it wrapped up in time to move on to other games I wanted. Like Dragon Fantasy and SS demo.

      • Azuardo

        Nice! It doesn’t seem to hard to get the plat in this game, but eh, I have too many games to play so I think I’ll leave it :/

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Anyone watching Shingeki no Kyojin?

    • PrinceHeir

      yes!!!!

      definitely a potential to become no.1 anime of this year :)

      • shafiq95

        i hope the anime ends on a cliffhanger,rather than making their own ending.The last good anime only ending was FMA,and that was excluding the movie, cos the movie was shit

        • PrinceHeir

          you mean brotherhood or the original ending?

          Brotherhood is amazing!!

          wish more companies should take not and follow the manga right till the end instead of making their own endings.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Heck yes!! Ive been spreading it for months!(before it came out)

    • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

      indeed this is my top fav first half this year second Devil Survivor 2 The Animation

    • Gunshrapnel

      oh man thanks im going to check it out

    • Kefkiroth

      Yep, it’s pretty much the hype of the season. Looks good so far; hope it won’t fall apart.

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Hopefully not

    • xMCXx

      Fuck Yeah!
      I only yesterday discovered this awesome show!
      “Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die Jäger!” xD

  • PrinceHeir

    so my PS3 broke 3 weeks ago, and they still haven’t fixed it.

    already gave my $120, kind a regretted now, but they say they already replaced the lens 3 times now and the disc drive.

    all that’s left is to reformat the HDD.

    since i already backed all of the saves there, and remove the online passwords so they won ‘t be able to play online.

    i just wanna ask, if you redownloaded the content on the same PS3. it won’t counted as another PS3 right since it’s still the same PS3.

    i also ask on how do i know which PS3 to deactivate?

    since i didn’t renamed it, and now i see my account has 3 registered PS3 devices.

    https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/pc/login.action

    not to mention i remember you can only deactivate one ps3 every 6 months??

    WTF this is clunky as shit sony.

    • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

      Go to account, click on media and devices, go to game and there should be a option to deactivate all.

      • PrinceHeir

        will try this :D

        thanks!

  • PrinceHeir

    love the Evil Within thumbnail pic :D

    reminds me of Shadows of the Damned mix with Resident Evil 4/Resident Evil 0

  • Tac-Mex

  • xMCXx

    So, I finally bought Demon’s Souls.
    I think it’s pretty awesome, but one thing…
    fucking Valley Of Defilement!
    Worst world in any videogame ever.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I enjoyed it XD

      • xMCXx

        lolwut? xD
        What did you enjoy? The fact that you can’t see shit? Or that enemies aren’t hindered by the poisonous water?
        Seriously, that world is plain unfair.

        • Charlottes Guradian

          I found the Tower of Latria to be even worse lol xD
          Though I would agree, plain unfair sounds about right.

          • xMCXx

            Tower of Latria is the big prison with the Cthulhu-Wizards, right?
            Yeah, I died from falling down there, because I couldn’t see a damn thing!

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          I never died there,I killed everything :)

          • xMCXx

            Well, hello there, Grandmaster! xD

            • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

              XD The hardest area for me was the city…so many invasions

    • MrRobbyM

      Glad you went through with buyin’ Souls of the Demon’s!

      Valley of Defilement is pretty nasty, but it’s got charm. Stinky, hate-inducing kind of charm. I just started the game up again. Hopefully we will cross paths online sometime :)

      • xMCXx

        Could be, but sometimes my connection dies and I’m kicked back to the main menue.
        And after I load again all the bloodstains and messages disappear and I can’t use the select button, anymore.
        Apparently, I’m offline, even though my connection reconnects after dieing…?

        • MrRobbyM

          That’s strange. I’ve never heard anything like that happen before O_o I guess try using a wired connection if possible or maybe something is wrong with your PS3.

          • xMCXx

            Could be, I wouldn’t be surprised.

          • xMCXx

            I googled it and apparently I’m just getting disconnected from the server.
            I’m already living the always-on future! xD

    • DichaTesoro

      i can sympathize.

  • futuristic_imagination

    So how is everyone? seems like 2013 is a good year for games, but a bad year for my wallet. So many releases nearby that it is ridiculous… in a good way!

    So what games that you are looking forward to this year?

    The games I want this year are:
    Black Rock Shooter: The Game
    Soul Sacrifice
    Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut
    Resident Evil Revelations
    The Last of Us
    Dynasty Warriors 8
    Tales of Xillia
    Killer is Dead
    Muramasa Rebirth
    Beyond: Two Souls

    • http://xcite79.1up.com Keegs79

      I have 5 of those games pre-ordered. Mine is more mixed. I don’t want Black Rock Shooter, Dynasty Warriors, or Muramasa Rebirth (sure this game will be awesome. Own it on the Wii). I would add…

      Watchdog
      The Walking Dead: Video Game Season 2
      Killzone: Mercenary
      Destiny
      BF4
      Batman: Arkham Origins
      Splinter Cell: Blacklist
      Rayman Legends
      The Wolf Among Us

    • Azuardo

      Zelda: LttP 2
      Bravely Default
      Yoshi’s Island 3
      Resi Revelations
      The Last of Us
      Killer is Dead
      FFX & FFX-2 HD
      Beyond: Two Souls
      Watch Dogs
      GTAV

      • http://xcite79.1up.com Keegs79

        Bravely Default isn’t until 2014 and who knows when the LttP2 comes out when it was just announced and shown. I hope this year though. Same can be said about Yoshi’s Island 3.

        • Azuardo

          BD is 2013 for Europe :)
          I expect both LttP2 and Yoshi’s Island to release this year, too. Got to fill that blank Zelda gap on the 3DS.

    • AdamBoy64

      Tales of Xillia, and any Mario game that comes out.
      If the Wind Waker remake is coming out this year, then that too.

    This past week has been absolutely terrible. First Boston, then Texas, Iran, Szechuan, and now Russia and Japanese coast. Condolences all around.

    • DichaTesoro

      Yeah. Turned off the news Monday evening because it really upset me, then Wednesday-Friday was just insane. Hope everyone will be alright.

    If anyone purchased and played through Sengoku Hime 3 for the Vita, I’d be interested in getting an opinion on the game. Information like how much of the scenes are voiced, what the Vita-exclusive features are, and how much additional content there is compared to the PS3 or PSP versions would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Does anyone here have a Wii U? If so, what do you think of it so far? I’m well aware that it doesn’t have lots of games yet.

    • http://xcite79.1up.com Keegs79

      I think its cool but I am on my PS3 way more. I only have New Super Mario Bros Wii U and Nintendo land. The coolest thing I think about it is the use of it as a tv remote but I don’t have cable so I can’t even take advantage of that. The community bit is somewhat cool but very limited.

    • AdamBoy64

      I’ve got a Wii U. I’ve only got New Super Mario Bros U so far.

      That’s a good game. A lot of fun multiplayer.
      There’s nothing that’s coming out in the near future that interests me. I think after E3 they’ll be a few games on the radar.

      A good system though. I found the controller to be surprisingly comfortable. Really nice.

      • Locksus

        Thanks for the reply. I also think that the Wii U gamepad looks comfortable and nice as hell. I’ve been especially impressed with the 3DS as of late, too.

        I’m excited for E3 since Ninty will probably announce the release dates for Shin Megami Tensei x Fire emblem, the completely new Zelda game and Xenoblade.

          I really would like to buy the Wii U. I just think the price is a bit too high right now. I’d love to see them reprice the white model at a discounted price. I don’t mind just using an external drive or something for storage purposes.

          I can’t help but think they might cut the price soon. They surprised most everyone when they cut the 3DS price so early on.

          Lots of potential in the future, most of that lies in games that we are waiting to be released, and those we hope will be announced. I think this lull period is what’s hurting the Wii U the most right now.

          I considered buying one next month, but then a bunch of special editions of games were announced, a bunch of games are suddenly coming out between June – August. This is kinda setting me back a bit. >_>

          • Locksus

            Right. I’m trying to save money for a 3DS XL, since I’ve been using my brothers 3DS.
            I’d really like to get the Fire Emblem 3DS XL bundle, but I reckon it will be sold out by the time I get enough money for it.

  • Haruya

    Anyone knows if there have been any news regarding the US release of Toki to Towa (Time and Eternity)? I’m interested to know whether or not it’ll come with Dual Audio, and if there are any special editions planned.

    I’m expecting this one, as well as Tales of Xillia. This summer is looking to be pretty fun. :D

    • http://xcite79.1up.com Keegs79

      I was interested in it until it got voted worst game of 2012 in Japan.

      • Haruya

        Wow, did it really? I wonder if it’s one of those games that not many people end up liking or something. I guess we’ll have to see.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It’ll have dual audio. If there are any special editions planned, they haven’t been announced yet. http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/03/05/disgaea-d2-time-and-eternity-the-guided-fate-paradox-on-ps3-this-year/

      • Haruya

        Thanks. I ask because it’s roughly 3 months from now and it still doesn’t even have an official cover artwork, at least as far as I’m concerned.

        Dual audio is sweet though. I loved the original cast for this game.

    Bad News!

    PS02 is becoming Pay to Win (P2W). How? Well you need to pay premium membership to use team storage. In this game teams are equivalent of Guilds or Clans in other MMOs and players who can use team storage benefit from sharing equipment. This is the 1rst step on that direction…

    Check out this interview (Via Gamasutra) with Mark Cerny (PS4 lead architect) about the PS4. If you have the time, its a pretty interesting read. It is a bit heavy on the tech jargon at times, but you can still read it without fully understanding every little thing.

    Few tidbits from the article —

    Realizing how passionate he was about the PlayStation 4 project, after Thanksgiving, Cerny went to Sony’s then-execs Phil Harrison and Masa Chatani, “and asked if I could lead the next generation effort. And to my great surprise, they said yes.

    The PlayStation 3 was very powerful, but its unfamiliar CELL processor stymied developers. “There was huge performance there, but in order to unlock that performance, you really needed to study it and learn unique ways of using the hardware,” said Cerny.” ….

    That situation led directly to the PS4’s design philosophy: “The hope with PlayStation 4 was to have a powerful architecture, but also an architecture that would be a very familiar architecture in many ways.”

    The launch lineup for PlayStation 4 — though I unfortunately can’t give the title count — is going to be stronger than any prior PlayStation hardware. And that’s a result of that familiarity,” Cerny said.
