    First Queen 1 NEXT, a remake of 1988 real-time tactical RPG:



    [​IMG] [​IMG]



    The original was released on PC-98, and was remade for SNES (1993) and Windows (2001). This release seems to be based on mobile release, which is based on the 2001 Windows version.

    Hopefully that in-app purchase thing is a mistake or for something trivial.

    Nice aspect of those upscales is the characters don't seem to stick out like a jaggy, sore thumb. FF9 isnt my favourite of the PS1 entries but the character models hold up much better in terms of the scene's overall composition.

    Wow, that Core Awaken game looks awful, just the graphics and design style alone, even the UI annoys me, certainly won't be playing that, as for Gunvolt, i have the first game, i think i played it...according to Steam, i did play it, but i swear i don't remember anything about that game, don't know what that says about it other than the first game being very easy to forget in my case.

    Sumire may be good, certainly looks prettier than Core Awaken at least.

    Three years later, looks like they did another price drops on their catalog as of June.



    No official list but some minor and old games got decidedly cheaper (Phantom Brave: $15 -> $5). Some full-priced games are now almost half of that. (Coven of Dusk: $50 -> $30, Ys 8: $60 -> $40).

    Notable exceptions are Diagea games. No price cuts. Most dramatic cut goes to The 25th Ward: The Silver Case ($30 -> $10).

    I guess I gotta buy few of their 2D horror games at Summer Sale.

    Did Sega arm wrestle Atlus to release more games on PC?

    An Etrian collection with good kb+m support would be great, one can never have too many crawlers. And, who knows, a SMT V pc port down the line. All cards are on the table now.

    If anything P4G is the most logical choice for ATLUS. It seems that ATLUS in general stills consider PC as inferior platform (Japanese devs consider this due to stigma of PC game = eroge and the rampant piracy in PC). The view of PC = eroge is less prominent now but the concern with piracy is still very big. That's why the bigger companies are using Denuvo etc to reduce piracy if they are going to release the game in PC at all. Even then the consoles will still get timed exclusivity due to being safer.

    Persona 4 was released on dead end of PS 2 lifecycle. P4G was released in Vita 8 years ago and Vita is pretty much a dead console lifecycle wise. For all intent and purpose, there is no new revenue stream for Persona 4 or P4G. Bringing a dead game to a new platform, even with it risk of piracy is worth it because the revenue loss due to piracy could probably be neglected. And if it is successful enough the spinoffs (P4 Dance, P4 Fightring games) can also be brought later to refresh revenue stream from older games.

    The fuck, Persona 4 is coming to PC...well damn, talk about genuinely shocking news.
    If they announce Etrian for PC, i will gladly pay for any of the games, any single one, come on Sega, if you managed to get Persona, one of their biggest franchises, you can surely get Etrian, believe in the power of Sonic and bring PC gamers Etrian!

    13 Sentinels Aegis Rim coming September 8.

    Based on trailers it would seem the game is more of a side-scrolling adventure or something? There doesn't seem to be any combat or something like that.

    They really strive to make an interactive anime game. It make me wonder if they try to make AI worlds where the characters actually will have daily routines some day. Here, it appears they are trying for facial expression, body movements, etc etc instead of overlapping huge static VN images with dialogue. The game appears to be a side-scroller chapter type VN done different.

    There is some type of rtwp combat or something. The rest is basically structured like a visual novel with diverging paths.
