    Eh I don't mind honestly. A bit of downtime here and there between mission is always nice. They just need to balance it out with good combat missions and I would be fine

    What are you saying?

    EVERY JRPG needs a fishing minigame. That was written into law sometimes in the 90s.

    If I can beat all fishing challenges in NieR, I can do it in any other game.

    Bit off-topic, but I thought I'd share this - Shouzou Kaga's first videogame project (from the mid 80s):

    I don't have a full translation handy, but iirc it was a cross between a shmup and roguelike.

    I never realized the maps in FE4 were actually built to align with the continent of Jugdral itself.

    I know FE4 can be a slog but I can't help but admire how epic it is in scope.

    If the map layouts were better and had more routes to objectives (eg a shortcut with terrain that made infantry more relevant), I don't think people would mind the length of chapters as much. In fact, FE4 binary does this to some extent, like allowing infantry to cross the cliffs in chapter 2.

    Is there a map that shows where Thracia's outdoor chapters take place? I'd like to compare them to that.

    Awakening and Fates sold very well, so it's no surprise that 3H will have those kind of DLCs.

    It was even worse in Echoes. I feel like nintendo rarely gets called out on this stuff.

    I only played Fates: Conquest from the 3DS era, and that was perfectly fine without any DLCs or the other Fates games. Most of the early DLC stuff looks completely pointless (costumes, fuck off). I guess we'll see how half-arsed or not the game is soon enough.

    So we're looking at 3-5 hours of content for 25 bucks. I guess it's okay when Nintendo does it.
    :hmmm:

    Sounds more like the kind of SPECIAL EDITIONS that only brain-dead fans buy.

    You always can more, if you have cult instead of conscious customers.
