    Yeah, I did, that's kind of what "the gameplay looked interesting later on" meant.

    But anyway, should I get EOIV or Demon's Souls? Both are on sale digitally, and I love Dark Souls and I loved the EOIV demo. I think I have more to play on my 3DS, though.

    Should I get Need for Speed: Rivals on the PS4. I kinda want a game to mess around with until Destiny comes out but its between that and both Knack and AC:IV. I already own AC:IV on the Wii U only problem is that I haven't finished the game because my Wii U was stolen along with my 3ds and all my 3ds games. Now I have a bunch of Wii U games but I don't really want to buy another Wii U so I'm thinking of selling my Wii U games and getting a few games for the PS4 with the money I make selling those games.

    They're both pretty different, one is a challenging RPG, the other is very much JRPG. They both have the potential to last you a while though.

    The recent NFS games have been pretty disappointing and from what I've heard Knack is pretty average. You'd be best off with Aassassin's Creed 4.

    Don't have any opinion on Etrian Odyssey IV as I've never played the games before, but Demon's Souls is EXCELLENT. It has a hub world rather than then "open" world DSI and III has. It's more "linear" because of it, but the game is still long, and it has a great atmosphere. There are no bonfires in each level though (except after defeating each boss at then end of each level), so you have to be careful, or else back to the starting area. Bloodborne is coming out in March, so best play the game now and get prepared.

    Knack is decent. But I wouldn't pay a single cent for it. Just wait until it goes for free on PS+. I have no doubt it will be one of the first free retail PS+ games for PS4. The Neogaf thread where people who got extremely salty when Knack outsold Super Mario 3D World a few weeks after launch in Europe was great though. Was one of the best gaming threads I've ever visited, included with salty Mario fans, Knack dancing gifs, and all around confusion. If you've played all the other AC games, ACIV is most likely a skip. But I heard the Naval battles are excellent. So grab it for that. I'd grab it too, but I'm just gonna wait until it goes on PS+.

    Did you get The Last of Us Remastered? There's really no need to get it though if you already played it on PS3 unless you want the 1080p60FPS upgrade.

    That does sound pretty interesting. I'll have to look into them both more, I get the feeling that whichever one I pick I won't be disappointed though.

    There are people who liked Demon's Souls more than Dark, and there are those like Dark Souls more than Demon's. There's a chance you'll be disappointed. There are enough change in mechanics between both games that will make it a bit hard to play for a bit. Both are still good though, and have their own positives and negatives. If you thought Blight Town was bad, get ready to see the original mess.

    Also, if you can't get enough Souls, watch this.

    I've been interested in two games recently. Kid Icarus: Uprising and Xenoblade: Chronicles. I'm not sure how either play but I've heard they are both really good games. Unfortunately I can only afford one of them so I would like to hear from you guys that have played them.

    That's pretty simple. They're the same game, but one with the DLC.

    Far Cry 4 or GTA V? (Xbox one)

    HUGE fan of the far cry series. And waiting because I am getting an Xbox one for Christmas, but also wanting the new grand theft auto. Which should I purchase first?

    Who here has played Bravely Default and Fantasy Life?

    I'm going to be given a 3DS game as an early Christmas present tomorrow and I would like to get both, but I can only go for one at this current time.

    Aside from the class systems these games have, which of these games will give me an enjoyable single player experience, replayability/post game content and what is the wifi features like for fantasy life? How much will I get out of the wifi features? Anything else I should know about these games?

    I personally don't have it, but I've heard nice things about it. If he has certain heroes he likes, I'm sure you could find their figures on sale in addition to the starter pack. Its really not something that can be enjoyed alone, but with friends and family, so if he has someone who will play the game with him then I think it will be more fun. Something else that is pretty much the same is Skylanders, and thats something that you CAN enjoy on your own, so I think its just a matter of personal preference.

    What Castlevania game to play next?? I'm playing through the first game and I'm really enjoying it. I never did give the series a chance due to the fact that it's on multiple systems and I have this compulsion to play every game in order -.- That aside I have a Wii\Wii U, 360, 3DS, Vita. So if it falls on one of those please let me know. I'm thinking about Lord of Shadows next or one of the Ds titles.

    Also if anyone could recommend a another good side scroller, aside from metroids (played them all) it be greatly welcomed.

    Play any of these:

    Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse (NES)
    Super Castlevania (SNES)
    Symphony of the night(PS1, should be in the 360 store, I think)
    Circle of the moon (GBA)
    Harmony of Dissonance (GBA)
    Aria of sorrow (GBA)
    Dawn of sorrow (DS)
    Portrait of ruin (DS)
    Order of ecclesia (DS)

    I don't have an opinion on the lords of shadow series, so I can't say if I can recommend it or not. There are other good castlevania games out there, but the list of above is all of the ones I've played and I've enjoyed them all.

    Other than SOTN, I don't know if you can find other games at a digital store and the DS series should be easy enough to find second hand.

    Most of the GBA one's I think are on the Wii U virtual console (I think). Your the third person to recommend Symphony of the night. So this one might be next. I can get it for the 360 or the Vita with the Dracula X, you can get two for the price of one. Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the night.

    Many thanks btw

    Default A pokemon game focused on strategic battles?!

    Hi Everyone,

    Are there any good online alternatives to Pokemon in the monster battling/collecting space?

    I've played a slew of copycats: Micromon, Haypi Monsters, Mino monsters, the list goes on and on. As well as the MMORPG pokemons...but they were all just that. Clones of pokemon's formula.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Pokemon, and it pioneered the monster battling/collecting genre. But I disliked:

    a) mindless grinding, where battles didn't feel strategic until I started PvP with friends (and that usually was at level 100 or 60s/70s)
    b) very little teamwork/co-op play with friends (I know this was not the intention of pokemon)
    c) a story that I was not excited to learn more about

    After mobile games became a thing, I was optimistic that there would be more games in the monster collection/battling genre, especially since collectible card games were taking off (rage of bahamut/legend of the cryptids). But it turns out, mobile games have even less depth. Many have auto battles, where you make very few strategic battle decisions. That to me, was one of the best parts of Pokemon/RPG games. I'm not including traditional RPGs here, only games that have a monster collecting/battling element.

    Thus, I formed a team to work on MonBattle (I won't link you, you can google to find our website), an online game which has Final Fantasy Tactics like strategy (making you think each turn), guilds and guild battles so you can play with friends, and Monster Battling/Collecting. It's also set in a post apocalyptic world, as we wanted to ingrain a darker tone on this genre.

    My Question is: Would you guys want a game like this in the online game space, and if so, what would you like to see be an element to the game? Or is Pokemon satisfying all of your needs in a monster battling/collecting game?

    Thank you for hearing me out and would love to hear your insight!

    Get these games (not in any particular order), and I'm gonna assume you only have an Xbox One, so I'll also be recommending multiplatform games

    •Sunset Overdrive (fast paced over the top Third Person Shooter)
    •Dark Dreams Don't Die (wacky and great downloadable game)
    •Forza Horizon 2 (beautiful open world racing game)
    •Dead Rising 3 (zombie TPS)
    •Dragon Age Inquisition (very awesome Western RPG)
    •Middle-Earth Shadows of Mordor (kinda like Assassin's Creed, but set in the world of the Lord Of The Rings, and has a very unique gameplay feature in the form of the Nemesis system)
    •The Evil Within (horror game from the man who created the Resident Evil franchise)
    •Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes (stealth game. It's only an hour long, so look for deals ~$10. Don't pay anymore than that)

    If you want to pre-order upcoming games, there are
    •Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (remastered version of PSP game, and comes with a demo for FFXV)
    •Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain
    •Batman Arkham Knight

    I've been playing Total War games for years ever since I first picked up Medieval II: Total War years ago. With the new Total War game coming out in two weeks, and a desire to play different games, I've decided to buy an older TW game. Since I already own and have access to two TW games, Rome 2 and Shogun 2, I was wondering whether I should buy Medieval II once again or start anew with Empire. What do you all think?

    So I've had this itch to play "The World Ends With You" again. In fact, part of me is wondering if I should buy the iOS version. Is it a different experience from the DS version? I still own the DS version and, with the New 3DS still having backwards comparability to DS games, it won't be obsolete anytime soon so I could always just replay that again. But is the iOS version an upgrade that could be considered a definitive version?

    The DS version is the one you want to play.
