|Hot Elf-like chicks in maid outfits in a SRPG crossed with an Inn Management Sim. Where do I sign!?|
Released back in early October in Japan (and subsequently needing a patch to fix some of the game's bugs) Forbidden Magna was a game that I didn't know whether I wanted to play it or not. SRPG with cute girls? Hell yeah! Inn Management Simulation? Ummm..... But given my perpetuity for RPGs that are.... unusual to say the least (Conception II is currently in my 3DS), I was willing to try out this game. Unfortunately, thus far the only word about an US release in regards to this game is that XSeed games is "interested," and nothing more has been said. Come on! The 3DS is swimming with unusual RPGs, what's one more to the mix?
Xenoblade Chronicles X
|Coming... When Nintendo feels like it!|
The New 3DS (Nintendo really needs a different naming scheme for this stuff), has been released in Japan both in normal size and XL size. The System not only has a hardware upgrade, sporting a more powerful processor and the like, but also new features like a "second analog stick" (which is just a little nub above the ABXY buttons) and the ZL and ZR buttons. Personally, I really don't care that much for the 1.5 version of Nintendo's handhelds (The GBA SP, the DSi, etc. etc.) mainly because their hardware tends to last quite a long time, thus I never really needed to replace them. However, I might get a NEW 3DS because I'm having difficulty charging my regular 3DS, also it seems like newer games might ONLY play on the NEW 3DS due to it's greater hardware. Unfortunately, Nintendo is holding off on releasing the NEW 3DS outside of Japan... Not because there is any difficulty in adapting the hardware, but rather because they want to wait for the best time to maximize profits on the new system. Damn you Nintendo and being a company that needs a successful profit margin. Oh, Also speaking of Xenoblade... and the New 3DS
|It looks so tiny. It's almost as if.... Oh my Sagan.|
And now we have the MAIN reason why 90% of the gaming population are going to GET a NEW 3DS, Xenoblade Chronicles is being ported to the system. Now I'm a little conflicted about this. On one hand, I have Xenoblade Chronicles for the Wii, I paid $50 for it... used, I pumped over 100 hours into it, I am unlikely to have enough time to spend that much time on a game again, I've beaten Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii, and the 3DS port will likely have some major downgrades..... On the other hand, it's Xenoblade Chronicles. Also I don't want to see this series go for over $100 on eBay again and I want Nintendo to realize that people like buying RPGs. So if it's at a good price, and they put enough original content (Like say being able to hook up with Melia) I'll probably get Xenoblade again.
There you have it. Next week, I'm going to talk about all the things I would like to see happen in 2015... But don't have a snowball's chance in hell of actually happening. Until then.
-Crescent, You think I have an obsession with this game?
