    Kinda bummed out that Civilization Revolution 2 Plus got delayed — again. -__-
    Well at least I got the flash sale to look forward to, hopefully they have something good on sale this weekend.

    • Freelance

      Yeah, me too. I’m so pissed. Thank god for flash sale. I may get some of those. At least I still have Digimon to look forward to. Are you getting Digimon?? I can’t wait for that!

    • David

      I’m kind of debating with myself on getting that, cause I already have Pokémon on my 3DS (no offense). I’m more interested in the World of Final Fantasy which is like a “lite” version of Pokémon, so I’ll be having to many games of the monster collecting genre? But I’ll might get it, the combat system looks addictive. Too many games releasing this year, very small wallet, vast backlogs, so little time.. -___-

    • Freelance

      Not sure why you’d think I’d be offended for liking Pokémon. Other than both having monsters, Pokémon and Digimon don’t have anything in common. The games aren’t similar either. Isn’t WoFF more like Monster Hunter? I’ve never heard it compared to Pokémon so far.

    • PSPenguin

      From my understanding the WoFF/Pokemon comparisons come from using trained monsters to battle wild monsters. Granted I haven’t followed the game too much, but I think that’s the gist of it?

      Civ Rev 2 Plus keeps getting pushed with no warning right? Feels like it doesn’t even get a mention.

    • David

      @FreelanceWolf:disqus I’m sorry I assumed you were a Digimon fan, I just didn’t wanted to start a fan war between Digimon with Pokémon, well with that misconception cleared out, I’m glad we both could look forward to these games soon yet to be released. @PSPenguin:disqus WoFF is kinda like Pokémon; you fight or capture a random encounter, once defeated or captured you can add them to your collection or level them up. The monsters in WoFF I believe are called “Summons” you can mount on your summons or train them so they can level up until they evolve. Some rare ones have 3 evolves, others just have 2, but most have none. It is very Pokémon style related, however, all that I have just mentioned are just my speculation from what I saw from the gameplay on youtube, since they only showcased it in Japanese only. Hopefully if any western reporter can do a scoop on this with more detailed info on this game, they could shed some light on what’s it really all about.

    • David

      Scratch that last part I mention, out of curiosity plus laziness I found an interview video about the World of Final Fantasy, its pretty old but it explains everything about the game, I must have not noticed it before, though at that time until now I had other responsibility to attend. I wish I can post the link of the youtube video here if the staff would allow me, if not, the name to the video is “World Of Final Fantasy – First Gameplay Details” and the uploader is “PlayStation Access” in case if anyone who don’t know what the game is about and would like to know more about it, even though I’m sure by now most people already knew about it and I’m the only one who’s late on news. But so far everything I have mentioned seems to be accurate about the game being similar to Pokémon.

    • Freelance

      Sorry, man. The game I was thinking of was Final Fantasy Explorers, not WoFF. The former is like Monster Hunter. Sorry for the confusion.

    • David

      Ahh I see, no worries man, I’m also looking forward to FFE as well. A lot of great games coming this year for handhelds, I’m gonna have to work extra hard to make sure my wallet doesn’t stay empty.

    • Freelance

      I just found out about a Vita game today that I never heard of before, and I’m interested in it. It comes out March. Man, yet another game I wanna get. My wallet will cry.

    • David

      Well this is what I have planed to buy this year for my Vita:

      Attack on Titan = $40
      Senran Kagura: Estival Versus = $40
      Stranger of Sword City = $30-or-$40
      Trillion: God of Destruction = $30-or-$40
      Odin Sphere Leifthrasir = $40
      Civilization Revolution 2 Plus = $20-$30 could be less
      Darkest Dungeon = $15-or-$20 could be more or less
      God Eater Resurrection = $40
      God Eater 2: Rage Burst = $40
      Grand Kingdom = $30-or-$40
      Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS Force = $40
      Ray Gigant = $30-or-$40
      Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization = $40
      Toukiden 2 = $40
      World of Final Fantasy = $40
      The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2nd Chapter = $40

      My wallet is already crying, with all these games put together I believe the total amount we’re looking here will be more-or-less between $580-650, I’m not gonna add tax cause I plan on buying them online plus I’m bad at math.

    • Freelance

      …and I thought I was bad. So far, I’m only getting 2 games (Digimon and Civ), and I may get Stranger in Sword City (nobody can tell me if it’s based on Wizardry which I like, or is moderny like EO which I don’t like). Mostly the games I get are the ones that never get any press and the first time I hear about them is when they actually show up in the store, so there could be other games I want later. I just dunno them yet.

    • David

      I hear you; that’s why I follow most of the developer publishers on their twitter or facebook page and come to websites like this. These publishers just give us a days notice with little to no courtesy to gamers and just say “here you go” and I see it as a disrespect to just laziness.

      As a gamer I like to be aware of coming games so I can save money ahead of time so by the time the game is released I have the money to purchase it. These publishers don’t understand the importance of advertising. Imagine how would Apple Inc. would be able to sell there iPhone’s if they didn’t advertise or just gave people a one day notice and just said “hey the new iPhone is coming out tomorrow” that hurts their sales a lot which is why I believe advertisement plays a huge role. But I guess the world doesn’t have to make sense to us all the time in situations like this.

    • Freelance

      You know what I also don’t like? It apparently applies only to Vita games from what I’ve seen, but I noticed that loads of companies don’t bother giving out prices when they write out articles about their games. I’d sure would like to know how much games I want cost, so I know exactly how much to save up, but I never see any prices unless I specifically ask them (and some don’t even reply back) or until they’re actually in the store. It’s really annoying to me. I don’t see how they can talk so much about their game and the release date, but not a price!

      I don’t see this with every other system/handhelds. It’s just the Vita…

    • David

      Well as much as I love my Vita and as sad as it is this is expected especially when the majority of the market considers it as a “dead console” (which is not because mine still has full battery,) it’s very hard to change their minds and show them otherwise when they have already moved on. At least Sony is still supporting the Vita by continuing investment into 3rd party game development and localizations. I wouldn’t be surprised if the reason why we got God Eater is because of Sony is copying Nintendo’s strategy and just focus on brining games to the Vita, and probably helped publishers import them over to the west. But that doesn’t excuse for poor advertisement.
      In the end its all business, which is sad when it comes to a device like the PS Vita.

    • PSPenguin

      It always seems kind of crazy to me that we get release date announcements (in general i notice this with download only games) almost only a week or so in advance. Sometimes it’s even for games that haven’t been officially announced for that console/handheld. Doing these Sneak Peeks is always enlightening because there’s often one or two games that I’ve never heard of that just pop up out of nowhere.

      Which is unfortunate because in many cases those games get ignored or left behind because no one is really talking about them. For instance Inside My Radio came out recently and from what I’ve seen looks really really cool….but other than the video we’ve done for it so far I don’t think I’ve seen anyone talk about it. That’s such a bummer because I feel like it deserves a bit more attention.

      The Vita is a whole other ballgame too…

    • Freelance

      HA, some of my fave games on 3DS and Vita are the ones nobody talks about, and unless it’s a game that got a lot of hype/attention, it’s really hard, based on my experiences, to recommend my fave games to anyone. I could count, say, 2 people who listened to my suggestions. It’s really sad that good games get overlooked ’cause it didn’t get any ‘special treatment’ and therefore ‘isn’t worth looking into ’cause nobody else besides this ONE person mentioned it.’ I used to try to get people to try these overlooked games by recommending them every chance I get, but never met any success. I eventually just stopped trying.

      NekoBuro Catsblock is one such game.

    • PSPenguin

      Oh I know. It’s so frustrating to bring up a game to someone and for them to respond “eh”, “overrated”, “no one cares about that”, or any other thing relating to indie/vita games not mattering. Would be good for people to be more open minded.

      Also NekoBuro Catsblock is pretty great.

    I blame Obama Care!
