I'm not even gonna touch that Bleach game because I absolutely despise games that give you shards without giving you the full character first. I'm fine with shard systems as long as when you pull a character from the game, you can absolutely get it... and those shards can be sufficiently farmed.

This is one of the best type of that game. They give out shards like candy. I'm not too mad so far.

Good luck to anyone pulling for Ashley (Magia Record)!

I've decided not to, since I don't particularly love her character from the little I've seen so far, not to mention hearing English voices while I'm grinding (in an otherwise Japanese VA game) would bother me after a while. She seems super strong if you're into that though, but personally I'll continue saving for the Anniversary (I'm even going to pass up on Cool Homura and grab her during one of her re-runs), and hope they have a slew of cool stuff then.

I got Ashley!! I got 3 4* i already had before her though, and I don't have any more jewels to use so she's at one slot. But Mami is at 2 slots now!
I'm going through the story and the Madokami and Ashley are kicking all sorts of butt :)

"Holy Christ this game is a career", is a user comment that pretty much summarizes my exact thoughts about FFBE: WoTV.

Some examples include 1 and 2.

Ugh, seeing how strong Ashley is makes me want to pull for her, but I can't really stand her character. I get that she likes the "kawaii" and everything, but she goes on-and-on about it to the point of irritating. I get that's her character and everything, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. It kind of sucks since Ultimate Madoka didn't even get a chance to really shine in Mirrors Ranking, since her Fate Weave came after the last one and now Ashley before the next. Good thing I don't really care about PVP...

Regardless, it's going to be hard to save, but thankfully the weave is only around for a short while, so I won't have to be in agony over it for an extensive period of time. Must save for IroYachi and Devil Homura.

So, I got into the Romancing Saga Re;Universe Beta. Didn't play that much (around 2 hours maybe) but so far it's basically what I wanted. I will invest a bit more, but since the progress will get wiped anyway I won't invest too much time into it. Getting the basics down so I can progress faster later on seems good though.

I am not using a healer at the moment which really limits me already. Nearly lost to the second story boss because of that. I also managed to get an SS and then the same SS as a dupe on another pull... xD

The home menu is ugly as sin though. Also, the game lags like hell on high graphics and I have to admit, I don't even see a difference between low and high settings. So I went with low and it's sooo much better now.

I am interested in FE Heroes, but I heard it is pay to win and that I need the season pass?
Which games are the best for beginners?

That depends on what you want to do in FEH. The PvE content is perfectly fine and with the right tactics you can clear even the hardest content with free to play units. But you REALLY need to be a tactical genius for that.

PVP though, you really need good units for the higher ranks. The game overall is still really good though.

If you want a really generious Gacha, try Dragalia Lost. Especially sinc eth 1.5 year anniversary is currently running.

Cant find Dragalia Lost in the German Playstore. Where can I find it for Android? Thanks!

I’m just starting to get back into Dragalia, but I’m honestly a bit worried about the financial health of the game. It’s top 150 range in top grossing on Android along with Mario Kart, which is decently healthy, but it’s not even top 400 on iOS, which is basically flatline status.

I’m worried that, unless they pull a rabbit out of the hat (which tragically didn’t work with Fire Emblem, Mega Man, and Monster Hunter crossovers), that the plug might be pulled. :(

OH, you are from Germany, like me! Sadly, Dragalia hasn't been officially released here yet. The only solution would be to get something like QooApp and download it from there.

Kito The game has nothing for whales, since it is so generous. Dolphins can get their fill (I am buying limited packs for diamantium to use for daily summons and an occasional Platinum Summon) but yeah... It does get better during events with limited units though.

It's an overall better game than recent 7DS and FF:WotV, but it won't be huge because of brand name and retro-style graphics.
Basically only the FFRK fans might move to it.

I'm on Challenge Area 11 in Magia Record. Wow, I lost my party on auto on one of the mini-bosses, not even the last boss. I already used my revives to clear the last boss in Area 10. Does anyone have Challenge Area 11 or 12 on farm?

I auto'd (or rather did, when I farmed the event) Chapter 12, with an Ultimate Madoka (four slot), Madoka (two slot), and Ren (four slot) team. I went down the far left path, and only manually controlled the two boss fights (Riko clones as well as the final boss) so I could use Madoka's Magia. Just set it so you don't use Magia/Doppel at all while on Auto, otherwise they'll consider the single waves as "Boss" waves, and use them on fodder trash. I saved Ultimate Madoka and Ren's Doppel for the final boss, and generally had Madoka's Magia to go as well (despite using it on the Riko clone stage). I had my strongest Memoria equipped to Ultimate Madoka/Ren, with Madoka equipped with the %Magia Bar filled per battle Memoria (can't remember the name off the top of my head right now), and another one that gave her attack/bulk).

R.I.P SINoALICE. (Maybe)

It's developed by Applibot, and we've already gotten a Global (or Canadian release, as of now) of BLADE XLORD from them, so maybe a Global version is entirely possible? They must know how popular the franchise is worldwide, I really hope they don't keep this one as Japan0only (or only choose to release it many months later).

I'm hyped.

I was able to clear all nodes in Chapter 12. It was such a pain to do the right side. Not sure if I want to farm it though. Was only able to kill the boss on the left side due to no traps. I saved my magia and once I got to the boss, I took a chunk of its health with Ultimate Madoka{3 slot}, Mami{4 slot} and Dart's(1 slot) magia.
I got the things I needed the most from the shop at least.

Yeah, it's not a highly-difficult event (assuming you've been playing since launch and have a decent number of powerful girls), but it's not fun to grind since it takes so long. Even auto'ing parts of it doesn't help that, I'd rather normal events where you can auto everything and just set your phone down for the run. I grabbed the exclusive stuff and the Rainbow Orbs and that's it.

Nier gacha game with Honkai Impact combat would be so fucking lit.
That'd be amazing.

I'm worried it'll be more akin to the style of BLADE XLORD, but I really hope that isn't the case. I mean, it's passable, but NieR deserves a more in-depth/responsive combat system. NieR x HI would be a great match, as it even has the dodge/slowdown mechanic.

Damn it, now I'm going to be disappointed if it doesn't happen.

Nier doesn’t sound like a gacha game. It actually reminds me of what they were saying about that Sky game, and that game was trash.

No more Magireco freebies for a while; thankfully I have at least one upper/high-tier natural 4* for each element, though mostly at one slot, but the additional coverage from uncapped 2/3*s helps to mitigate things.

Only a couple more days to use the 4* ticket. I already have two natural Light 4* in Ultimate Madoka and Darc, but I suppose the meta opportunities make regular Madoka still the top choice.

Cool Homura's event has been datamined for early April in MagiReco. Nice timing, right after Ashley was released.

I'm still waiting for the anniversary though, since Cool Homura gets multiple releases (including ones done after the Coordinator Coins feature is implemented, so it'll be easier to 4S her then). If they release Devil Homura though, she gets priority (as well as Iroha + Yachiyo). I need all of the anniversary girls.

I really wish Magireco had some options that you could use to fine-turn auto behavior. Even just stuff like prioritize MP gain, prioritize blast attacks, target higher HP enemies first -- none of that seems like it would be too complex to add and it would go a long way to help the AI not be as terminally stupid as it can be.

Also now that I've had more time to understand the mechanics and meta of the game, it feels like getting a limited character is almost useless unless you go for at least one extra so you can have two memoria slots. Which means that for the non-paying players who started this year because of the anime, we're screwed.

I really hope that wasn't a spoiler for the main story in the NA version.

Also I know it's a bit off-topic but I hate that video/clip because it's making fun of people who enjoy callbacks/references being made to previous works in a franchise and to an extent has poisoned some of the online discourse whenever a movie/show/game does something similar.

Nope, no alert.

The information for Cool Homura's event was datamined earlier and posted to a Google Doc (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LUgd3A7qkT6u0ZU7CPly3c-KXeaSNYGyg_4xzF8dDyA/edit#gid=0). I don't know where they get their information (I'm guessing they datamine the game itself?), so I was expecting the announcement to be pretty soon. When I have an expectation like this, I occasionally refresh the Rika-Ren website during the evening time (in-between my casual web browsing) to see if something pops. It just so happened it did.

That link is to a datamining site. The news post will become public in the game tonight probably.
I know what that site is, and my question was for Chrono. And this is one of the occasions where the news post wasn't uploaded ahead of being made visible to the public, so it's in the game news right now.

Why are you so antsy for a banner you've made very clear ahead of time that you have no intention to roll on?

Cool Homura coming on 4/3. That's really soon. Wasn't planning to pull for her, but now there's Ashley, Holy Mami and her coming up. As much as I like to pull, I rather save.

Tales of Crestoria. Where are you? Where? The last update was stating the game was scheduled to release by mid-2020 and nothing since. No pre-registration campaign, no post, no hype. Every day that goes without an update I get more and more depressed. The game looked like it was coming along well too, I just hope it hasn't all been cancelled. Tales of Cancelia? It could very well be true.

Please prove me wrong, Bandai Namco.
