NPCs only build front blueprints iirc. Otherwise they'll help with tasks like defending and farming.
Find this a really strange point for the review to make when you can literally make larger and more detailed structures than what the first game allowed due to limits imposed back then.
You don’t have to. It’s great, and if you can catch it on sale I recommend. Having save data from the first one does unlock extra stuff in the new game.
Chapter 2 and up of the story mode drops you in without many resources to work with, initially, unlike chapter 1. And if you played on the PS4 version, each chapter had a built-in speedrun challenge, amongst others, that had you beat them within a certain amount of in-game days.
Really? I didn't know about this. Do you know if its fine to have the save data in the cloud or does it have to be on the system?
Monsters that come in random raids can destroy your buildings, but whenever there's a miniboss/boss battle the town is restored to its pre-battle state afterwards so the damage isn't lasting.Mmm, the building thing sounds bad for the type of play i like actually (i like building stuff, if the villagers are completely automated in building your city, that would make me sad, but if you can choose that would be great actually). I was waiting for 2 instead of buying 1 after loving the demo, but it seems it change some things for the worse? While i would not like monsters detroying my buildings all the time, a little bit of it seems cool. The fights seem less interesting? how so?
What do people that have played both think?
Thats excellent to know, thanks for the info!Monsters that come in random raids can destroy your buildings, but whenever there's a miniboss/boss battle the town is restored to its pre-battle state afterwards so the damage isn't lasting.
The bosses seemed about just as gimmicky as they were in the first game to me. I actually quite liked the second and third chapter boss battles.
Overall, thinking about the story mode, it's better in some aspects and worse in others, but considering the post-game and how it stacks up as a building game in general, it completely blows the first game out of the water.
Don’t expect a huge level of depth in the mechanics. I can’t speak for the second game yet, but the first was much simpler than what you describe. That being said, it was incredibly charming. Think of a 2D Zelda type experience with Minecraft style building tasks instead of dungeon puzzles. It’s not going to be the game you play for the next three years, but I think I put around 80 hours into the first and thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. Why not try the demos and see if they click?Thanks, topped up my PSN ready to pre-order, but having a hard time understanding if this will float my boat or not, I love city building sims, RPG's and minecraft so it should be a no brainer.. but, dunno, seems like I might get bored of it very quickly based on these previews.
I was looking at the deluxe and its sort of DLC thingo to build your own and I didnt care to build in the old one so I'm not sure it its worth the $20 premium? HMmm.I guess I’m excited - I just preordered the Deluxe edition on PS4 lol!! I saw there are blocks/items/furniture in the DLC packs and I MUST have allll the blocks, so why not just buy it all at once?!
This is out tomorrow night - did I miss the OT or has it not been posted yet?
I adored the first game and love both DQ and Minecraft style games so this is one of my biggest releases for 2019. 21 hours to go :)
its deluxe exclusive. you get 3 different regions to build.
blocks are part of the season pass.
- Knickknack Pack (July 26, Free) – This free pack includes three recipes so players can celebrate with some Hotto flair.
- Hotto Stuff Pack (July 26, $5.99) – This pack includes more than 40 recipes to design and decorate structures that look similar to The Hotto Steppe, as well as an additional island to gather the new materials.
- Aquarium Pack (Aug. 2, $9.99) – Adds a fishing island and 40 different fish that can be caught and added to an aquarium.
- Modernist Pack (Aug. 9, $9.99) – This pack includes more than 70 different recipes to construct modern-looking structures, as well as additional hairstyles and clothing.
you can get the deluxe which has the game and season pass combo.
I can't find anything that's called "Deluxe" on the Switch store, just the normal game + season pass bundle. God is this shit confusing again.
Ditto! Has it been confirmed that the final version runs as bad as the demo did? That's a shame. I would have been happy with a stable 30fps.
