Trying to decide on Trials Rising, World of FF Maxima, and FFXV Pocket Edition. :/

Mostly playing in handheld during trips for work or on the couch, while home.

World of FF is pretty decent, I pick that.

I went with Trials. I've been wanting a new trials game in my life so it superseded my desire to give a jrpg a go.

I thought Friday the 13tg dev went out of business or something like that?

No, there was a lawsuit between Sean Cunningham and the writer to the original movie over ownership that shut down anything with the franchise in any form until ownership rights could be sorted. That meant any and all DLC was cancelled and any work on future installments was immediately shut down.

I would assume the lawsuit has been settled, but man F13th ran pretty shitty on PS4 even with PS360 graphics, and also was janky as hell with a weirdly complicated control scheme that I can't see translating to Switch controls.

It's a very fun game, but really janky. And yeah it did'nt run well on the PS4. It also is'nt what I would call pick up and play multiplayer.

Very fun...uh...lol. It's kind of fun in a "oh I'm playing as Jason fuck yeah" kind of way for a one day Redbox rental. Then you realize there's nothing else to the game that you can't do in literally one play. Tfw the F13th game you always dreamed about finally gets made and in actuality it sucks. :mjcry

I had a lot of fun with it. Then again I was able to get two other irl friends to get it. So playing it with voice chat was pretty fun. It's certainly not a "good" game. But it was pretty thrilling for me trying to escape Jason with friends.

 I could see it being more fun shit talking with friends or something. As a single player game it's a one time novelty play.

It has single player mode that was patched in later. You can play as Jason or the kids. There are also little mini scenarios to play through as Jason (like little stories that are basically a plot to any given movie, kill in a specific order or specific ways for more points kind of deal).

Wow, did not know they did this- I remember reading there were plans to do so, but thought they fell through.
:leon

Regardless, it's a game that was made to be played online.  Playing with bots doesn't sound all that great and a novelty like you said.

A different company other than the original developer is currently working on Friday the 13th, by the way. Apparently, they were brought on once the lawsuit was settled.

This is the most ridiculous looking gaming thing Iíve seen since the N-gage   :lol

Very curious what Nintendo VR games will be like. Their simple colorful art style should work well and allow higher resolutions hopefully.

I felt like the rabbits game was semi-luck based near to the end. Like I got to the last world and sometimes there just didnít seem to be enough tactical options without trial and error long anleve a few times to figure out who you needed to bring.

Kind of lost momentum with it around that point.

I enjoyed it until about just over half way through. It started becoming a chore so I took a break and have never really got back to it.

Still, that's more progress than I make in most games these days.

Until they do a full remake of FF8, we probably won't ever see it on anything that isn't emulating a PS1.

I am led to believe it is:

The original Castlevania
+ Castlevania 2: Simons Quest!
+ Castlevania 64!
+ Castlevania Lords Of Shadows 2!

The collection the fans want and deserve.

Got South Park SoT and Valkyrie Chronicles on sale. Have em both on Steam but Switch > PC for me.

South Park is really good so far, idk why but Im enjoying doing sidequests even as they provide some nice fanservice. Not really sure about the battle system as i find it pretty annoying you have to time hits etc.

I know u guys want an updated version but honestly if thr joy con quality wont greatly improve you are much better off wlth this one where the joy cons are replaceable.

Its 360 levels build quality, mine have been repaired twice already within a year (under warranty) and the issues are very common.
