I'm totally getting the season pass for Cadence of Hyrule. I love it, and I still go back to it every now and then. I knew there would be more DLC on the way (the game's own credits kinda leaked some of it after the last update), but this is even better than I expected.
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne - HD Remaster and Shin Megami Tensei V are both coming in 2021. I'm not sure if I'm interested in these, but the HD Remaster of Nocturne is a pretty cool surprise.

The Japanese one showed completely different stuff. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is finally getting release deails, the new Momotaro Dentetsu is finally getting a colid release date (19 Nov), and Atelier Ryza 2 got officially unveiled, even though it was leaked before. We still have Cadence of Hyrule and the SMT announcements, though.
And the 10-minute presentation ended up being more than 12 minutes long. Not particularly impressive, but still pretty good.
Everyone is going so hard on the animated trailers in that.
Heard good things about a short hike, followed the development on twitter. Think it was recommended by Bennett Foddy as well. The dev also did a good talk about playtesting at GDC (I think)
Manifold garden reminds me a bit of the weird puzzle/walking sim NaissanceE. Bear and Breakfast looks cute. I'm a real sucker for the monochrome 8bit styles of some of the honorable mentions at the end as well.
That came out of nowhere, and good to see the rumors were true (3D All Stars) but with a whole of lot stuff that wasn't mentioned.
The G&W was unexpected, might buy it depending on the cost/functions. While a Mario Battle Royal for NSO is interesting but the limited timeness of it (and 3D All Stars release) is a bit weird. Could it be just for demand or could it be to have "end" and then start up for a Zelda 35th stuff next year?
AR RC Mario Kart looks cool, who needs Mario Kart 9 when you can try to replicate N64 Royal Raceway in your living room? Now how do I build a giant launch ramp over a fake lake indoors?
Imagine the warnings that will have to be included on the box. - Do not drive kart down staircase in an attempt to recreate N64 Bowser's Castle - Kart is not waterproof, do not attempt submersion - It's also not lavaproof, don't try that either, Lakitu is not here to help you - Kart cannot deploy a glider, just like Buzz Lightyear this toy does not actually fly - Racing in the middle of a pride parade is still not a safe way to recreate any of Rainbow Road tracks in real life - Snaking in real life will not increase speed - Driving at a wall at the right angle will not cause you to "hop" over it, it will cause you parents to "hop" over and reduce your allowance for wall dent damage repairs - Pets should not be considered "track hazards" - Your Dad's foot is not a Thwomp, any Kart flattening will not be undone

Lots of Monster Hunter. I've never played a game in that series before. I might want to try one, but I already can't keep up with the other games I want to play.
Speaking of which, Rune Factory 5 looks good, but I still haven't tried RF4 yet.
Also, it seems that amiibo are, in fact, still a thing.
I don't remember if it's been mentioned here or not, but Balan Wonderworld is actually a new game by Yuji Naka, with characters designed by Naoto Ohshima. So, yeah, the two creators of Sonic the Hedgehog have made a new game together for the first time since the '90s.
Nester the Lark: ^ Reminds me that Xanadu Next also had a randomly-generated post-game dungeon. You needed to go into it many times, getting a little further each time, but it was different every time you re-entered. It was very grindy. I never did finish it.

nocturnal YL: DIVA FT Meiteki Cybernetics EXEX perfect. Finally got it.

Spud: Lol, Imagine spamming a sleepy little forum like this.

nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.
Apr 12, 2022 15:07:04 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.
Apr 18, 2022 12:11:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.
Apr 18, 2022 12:15:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.
Apr 18, 2022 12:17:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)
Apr 24, 2022 15:10:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.
Apr 25, 2022 10:39:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.
