Will have to give this a download does look quite good.

Bad, obviously.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Why bad?

Cant wait to get this one of the main reasons I purchased a Wii U is for the platinum stuff.

Oh I forgot you don't like insane games

Looks like something a 10 year old would enjoy.

eShop, whatever it's called. I am confused. Maybe it is but all I see is crazy colours.
Shoozle's avatar

Oh wait there it is! In very small text "demo available"

Been busy, just downloading now. Looks fabulous though, i really feel sorry for anyone who can't (or won't) appreciate a game like this.

Before I play it, I think it looks damn good, but I really wish Kamiya would make another game like Okami. His last few games have all been in the same tone with many quick time events, insane craziness. I love his games, but Okami was truly something wonderful. It had low sales so it is to be expected on why he won't make something in the same vain but the comment he made about inspiration when working on Okami is something I want to see again in a new title.

So was that the special announcement that the demo is available?

Trailer really tells me nothing about how the game even plays. A trailer that long with so little actual gameplay footage isn't encouraging. Looks just like Pikmin with the usual Platinum visual noise added in everywhere from what I could tell.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'm interested in the characters most of all
Shoozle's avatar
Shoozle 3 years ago
Solid demo, took a while to get used to the controls, will probably take a few tries. Enjoyable though. Tutorial buttons could have been explained better, often went too fast paced for me and some I did not notice at first.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yep, great demo, does take a bit of getting used to, but fun learning as you go, certainly put in a better performance on my second playthrough. You only seem to have the basic red blue and green forms of hand sword and gun at first but I accidentally managed to form the hand glider at one point, so maybe more are possible. The story and characters look good too, some of the characters are well funny, I discovered one called Wonderful Beer. Totally reinforced my expectations for this, it is going to be a great game, and anyone who dismisses it without playing it is a moron.

Anyone who likes games like this needs to play real games.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Care to elaborate why this isn't a 'real' game Whitey? Not grim and grey enough for you perhaps?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'm interested as well, what's a "real game"
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Well a game by definition is 'an activity providing entertainment or amusement', I'm guessing a 'real' game is more serious and shouldn't be amusing or entertaining.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
A real game is a board game like Shadowrun or D&D
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Oh, so Whitey thinks we should be playing board games?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
No that's what I think a real games is. Anyhoo http://steamcommunity.com/id/whiteyxm/games?tab=all
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Btw this is my collection http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198035036629/games/
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I think I'd rather play a board game than what Whitey considers to be a 'real' game.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
You must be easily pleased if a kids game that looks annoying and boring as hell entertains you, to each their own and all though.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Still no explanation of what a 'real' game is then?
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
And I'm far from easily pleased.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Nox, just looked through your whole 170 steam library and only 20 of them are worth playing :) And a real game is a game that has decent gameplay, a good story, ok graphics and isn't made for kids.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Then again, only 43 of my 87 games are worth playing too.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Wonderful 101 is a 'real' game then by that definition.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Not really, gameplay? boring, story? none existent, graphics? meh, kids games? yeah also big with the japs.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Kirby's Epic Yarn: Made with kids in mind but one hell of a great game
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
How do you know if the gameplay is boring, you played it? Also tell me that trailer didn't scream story.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong. Gameplay is great, loads of fun, varied and addictive. The story is a little cliched, but looks good too, the graphics are beautiful, and no way was it made for kids, it's far too challenging for that.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
The only thing that trailer screamed was, this is annoying as hell but the Japs will love it. The intro alone was bad enough.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Why do you keep on bringing up the Japanese?
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Because these are the types of games they play, and pretty much made for.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
You are a true philistine Whitey.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
& what's wrong with the types of games they play?
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
They are not games I enjoy, said this before. Yes this is art and entertainment for some, for me? far from it.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
& as I said before, at least understand why people like games you don't & don't say games are crap without even playing them
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Next you will say Mario 64 or Mario Sunshine are crap or god forbid The Legend of Zelda: Oot
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
To everyone who is still here. Name your top 5 games of the Gen (360/PS3/WII/PC/DS/PSP)
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Whitey will say all 4 Gears games and a Halo I bet.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I'll have to think about mine a bit, it's a really hard choice.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Not "Best-Worst", (That would be to hard) just do it in any order
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Funny seeing as I don't like Halo, Gloria :) Nox, I never said I don't understand why you like them games, as I said they are not for me therefor I do not like them, if you like them then fair enough play what you want. Best 360 games for me are, Dead Rising, Gears of War, Saints Row, Crackdown 2 and Mass Effect (even though not exclusive any more)
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
In no particular order, and subject to change depending on my mood, but. Dishonoured, Spec Ops:The Line, Bioshock, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Portal
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Mine: Fire Emblem:Radiant Dawn, 999:9 hours 9 persons 9 doors, Infinite Undiscovery, Divinity 2, Sonic Generations. (Twilight Princess was a Gamecube Title so I don't think it counts)
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
For PC it's, Guild Wars 2, WoW, The Secret World, Unreal Tournament 2004 and can't think of any more
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Good choices Brooker, was tempted to put Spec Ops on mine
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
WOW doesn't count since it has been going for years and this generation started in 2005 so Unreal 2004 also don't count
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
OK, so, in no particular order, Super Mario Galaxy, Mass Effect 2, Blur, House of the Dead Overkill and Dead Rising 2 Off the Record. I could probably come up with a different 5 on another day, but those are the 5 that came to me now, although the last one was a tough decision, EDF 2017 nearly had it.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Didn't get along with Overkill tbh
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Meh why so picky :) Well GW2 is best PC game for me at the moment. If they don't have to be exclusive then the top 5 games overall for me is (I'm just going to include the series for games with multiple sequels). Guild Wars 2 - Mass Effect - Gears of War - Dead Rising - Saints Row.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Picky cos I said "top 5 games of the Gen" as in "Seventh Generation Consoles" & PC games from late 2005 to present
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
To be fair, surprised no one said GTA IV, GTA was always one of the biggest selling games. I think Saints Row 1 is better than GTA IV though personally.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Great seller doesn't always equal Great game.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
What game has everyone actually played the most then? Mine is probably Guild Wars 2, currently sitting at over 1600 hours in just over 11 months. Runners up are probably WoW, Gears of War 2 and Saints Row 1.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
GTA4 is shit,that's why, and Saints Row wasn't much better, they only started getting good with the second.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I don't know, I would have to say Dark Souls & Radiant Dawn but I'm not to sure on that. I did do 4 playthroughs of Infinite Undiscovery so I guess that stands at 300+ hours
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Oh you didn't limit the question to this Gen. Well I would have to say Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, two words: Chao Garden
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
GTA 4 wasn't a bad game, it was just a bad GTA game.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
It was pretty bad, almost every other sandbox game in the same generation was better.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Just ordered Radiant Dawn and Xenoblade for the Wii. My top 5 for the 350 are (including series if more than 1) Mass Effect, Red Dead redemption, Oblivion , Gears of War and Borderlands. For PS3 Uncharted, Valkyria Chronicles, Ni No Kuni, Disgaea and Little Big planet. For PC Guild wars 2, Bioshock infinite, Skyrim, The Walking Dead and Xcom enemy unknown. Handheld RE revelations, Fire Emblem awakening, pokemon conquest, pokemon black/white and Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Shadow wars.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Hold on I'm confused,, are the DS & PSP part of the Seventh or Eighth Generation?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Have you played Path of Radiance Zombie? You will enjoy Radiant Dawn a lot more if you have
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I thought it was supposed to be just 5 games, not 5 games per console, or 5 game series.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Zombie, what world do you play on Guild Wars 2?
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I would say 3DS is and Vita are current gen personally with DS and PSP being last.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Pretty sure the DS is the same gen as Wii.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Was confused bt the way it was worded though he meant for each. Just overall would have to be Gears of War 1, Red Dead redemption, Borderlands, Mass Effect 2 and Fire Emblem awakening. No not played path of Radiance was lookingat that as well but its like £200. Im on Ring of fire Whitey.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'm thinking the same as Gloria
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Not sure how the numbering goes with gens, I thought the Wii U was gen 6.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Think we should just i give handhelds there own generations
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Maybe gen 7 if you count the 2600, Intellivision and Colecovision as gen 1.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
The Wii is in the same generation as the 360 and PS3 so the Wii U is in the same as the PS4 and Xbox1. The least I have seen Path of Radiance go for is £45, I got mine in a Gamecube bundle for £50 I think (Manual was missing so I was a bit gutted) Got any rare games? We could do a trade for a while?
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Just had a look think the rarest games i have are Suikoden for the DS that sells at about£45-£60 preowned if i still had it wrapped it would be about £190. Just looking as well the first Neptunia game is still going for about £40.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Is it? It went down to the low 20s cos of the Reprint last time I looked
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
That series is down to £20-£30 each now
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
This is why I hate scalpers
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Never had anything very rare, maybe Conkers Bad Fur Day, Ikaruga and Twin Snakes were the rarest and increased in value at all after I bought them.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Been wanting to get my hands on a copy of Twin Snakes for ages
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Was just watching the trailer again, and the story really reminds me of Battle of the Planets.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Suikoden sealed on the DS is worth £190!! I still have mine sealed as never got round to playing it! My top 5 games this generation are in no particular order. Uncharted 2, Gears of War 3, Ni No Kuni, Heavy Rain and Asuras Wrath.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
Mass Effect 2, Deus Ex: HR, Sleeping Dogs, Borderlands 2, Splinter Cell Conviction
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
So what games (if any) do you want to get your hands on the most? Mine are: Metal Gear Twin Snakes, Shadow Hearts 1&2, Pokemon XD, Skies of Arcadia Legends, Folklore.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I always wanted to get Suikoden 1 and 2 on the original playstation. I regret that i ever got rid of Skies of Arcadia on the gamecube that was a great game. I am sure my friend had shadow hearts 1 and 2 but he is one of these people that don't look after there games.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
When I was younger I got rid of quite a few games that I want to re-play now. Games like Paper Mario 2, Wind Waker, (Wii U version is coming out so yeh) Pokemon XD, Azure Dreams.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I still have Azure Dreams on the ps1 :) Same here i have learned though don't get rid of RPGs :) I still have a fair few for my PS1 i have both Vandal Harts, Azure Dreams, FF anthology and 6, Saga Frontier 2, Grandi. Sure i have some more but thats all i can remember without raking through boxes.

My PS1 RPG collection is pretty good have most PAL ones have a few NTSC ones. My collection includes the likes of Star Ocean 2, Suikoden 1 and 2, Vandal Hearts 1 and 2, Legend of Dragoon and Saga Frontier 2 as well as others. The one I never got was the PAL version of Tail Concerto but that only came out in France.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
