Problem with making purchase plans based on the eshop (besides those games you just buy on a whim and werent planned) is that a lot of shit you forget is coming out is missing. Case in point, checking out some "october releases" videos, and noteable "big" games that dont have a eshop page yet:

Disgaea 4 Complete
A Hat in Time
Digimon Story Cybersleuth Complete
RE5 and 6
Doraemon Story of Seasons
Atelier Ryza
Dusk Diver
Children of Morta

And the noteable October releases already with store pages:

Luigi's Mansion 3
Overwatch
Witcher 3
Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair
Sniper Elite 3
Call of Cthulhu
Vampyr
Ghostbusters Remastered
Alliance Alive Remastered
Neo Cab
80 Days
Mistover
NG
Killer Queen Black
Trine 4
Baldur's Gate 1 + 2
Mary Skelter 2

We were all so worried about September that we didnt see October sneaking up >_>
Also Alien Isolation and Two Point Hospital are still supposed to be 2019, but without announced dates. They could drop with little or no warning.

So I just beat Katana Zero...I think? Does this game just not really have an ending?

I say this at the risk of sounding stupid and/or lazy, but I’ve played more than a couple indie games that have these mind fuck stories that prioritize that weirdness over just being...good? Like sure it’s cool to keep me guessing the entire time but there needs to be a payoff, I don’t really enjoy having to google “____ending explained” after I finish a video game :/

Funnily enough that didn’t even help with this game though, seems as though no one really knows what the hell was going on lol. Great game gameplay wise and visually though, very cool.

Maybe it’s just me...

I'd resent Katana Zero a lot for that ending if the game wasn't so fun.

Untitled Goose Game was neat, I liked it a lot in fact, not sure I would actually recomend it to anyone at $15 tho (and that's with the launch discount, I certainly wouldnt recomend it for $20). It's super short and while its a great game for what its going for, theres not much to it and this is a super busy season.

Any thoughts on the new Hori Split Pad Pro?

I was playing Tales of Vesperia and it put me onto a nostalgic trip.

When I got the game on Xbox360 ten years ago, my family was still rocking a CRT TV. I thought the game look great but not stunning. Then one day, the TV broke and my family was forced to buy a LCD, and the first game I tried on the new shiny TV was ToV. Holy mother, the game looks stunning in HD! Everything is so sharp and clean, and being a teenager with tons of time, I could play it all day without any breaks. Fast forward to now... Man, I just finished playing it on handheld. Me in ten years ago won't believe that I can now hold this game between my hands. And even 10 years have passed, the graphics still hold up and it looks amazing on screen.

Then, I suddenly realised how much have changed in these 10 years. Technology advances, and I also changed a lot. I am not a native English speaker, and my English was not very good during youth. 10 years ago, I could understand around 70% of everything in ToV, and still loved the game to death and finished it twice on 360. Now? I am living in Japan, and can understand 95% of this game in Japanese. I can shut my eyes and understand all the dialogues just by listening. This somehow tears me up and makes me realize my work is not in vain. Videogame is always a tool for me to get used to a language. I remember playing Mass Effect for the first time put me on edgy due to how English-intensive the games are, but I still pushed through the whole series and it gave me greater confidence in English. Videogames have stayed with me in different stage of my life. This afternoon, I realized how much I love gaming and how important games are meant to me.

I hope all you people will keep playing games whenever you have free time and whatever your mood is. If you are happy and content with your life, congratulations, now you have some games to play and you will certainly enjoy them. If you are in low point of your life and you are not happy, well congratulations too, because there are always games to help you alleviate the burdens and give you courage to move forward. Most importantly, I hope all of you will have fun playing videogames. :)

I just finished AI: Somnium files and really like it. Weirdly enough I think portable looks better than docked, probably because low resolution doesn't really matter on a small screen. Also load time seems better on portable as well. This is my first Kotaro's game, I am considering trying 999 or Steins;Gate next.

Both are fantastic and really worth it.

Yeah I only heard good things about these games. Good VNs are precious things and those first-time experiences are hard to come by.
I probably should try Neo Cab demo as well.
Yup!
999 is more accessible as it is more of a "video game" with puzzle-solving like AI, while Steins;Gate is more of an interactive novel with much longer text.
I strongly recommend the Zero Escape trilogy overall not only 999.

Like it a lot because it is a full package with no filler (I am still in Astral Chain and "oh boi", most side missions are something from the past, so a neat breather) and good to play with someone on the couch. But I can't recommended it at $20 either.
I don't think the problem of the game is his shortness, it is more the straightforward objectives. It could have been fun to have follow up objectives or making objects useable rather than only take them in the mouth.

finished Severed, I quite enjoyed it. Cool art style, cool fruit-ninja style combat, doesnt overstay its welcome (took me 5 and half hours to finish). I really like Drinkbox Studios, I also liked Guacamelee and Tales from the Blob (I havent played Guac 2 but theres no reason I wont like it since I loved 1)
Severed was my GOTY, the year it came out. I think there is nothing like it out there. It's a a mix of dungeon crawler, metroidvania and Fruit Ninja. I played it on Vita and loved it. Does it use touchscreen on switch? I can't imagine playing that game with just buttons.
Drinkbox has yet to make a bad game. I finished Guacamelee 2 yesterday. While it is more of the same I quite enjoyed it.

French is my first language. Where I am from there was no localization and all our games were from NA as it is closer. I used to play rpgs on snes and ps1 with a french/english dictionary by my side. that's how I improved my vocabulary and tv helped with pronunciation. So yeah gaming is good start for learning a new language

Neo Cab put me to sleep yesterday. Admittedly it was rather late, but there is too little interactivity for me. I struggle with most visual novels as well. With Neo Cab I wanted to move the conversations at a quicker pace and accidentilly clicked dialogue options I didn't want to pick. That was a little frustrating. I am a rather quick reader and the game moves at a glacial pace.
I was put off by the demo too. I knew it'd be narratively focused, but I thought there'd be some actual driving in it - not just a VN. Writing seems good and the management of feelings is pretty interesting but I don't think it's for me.

Ended up trading in Link's Awakening for $100 in eShop credit.

Freezasaurus, you're the only person I know who bought Daemon X Machina, and I liked the demo well enough. Is it worth buying?

Very cool post, Jim!

I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, so Portuguese is my native language. When I was a kid, a friend of mine got a "famiclone" (that's how we call the many unlicensed NES consoles we got here) with The Legend of Zelda. The game was pretty challenging, so we bought an English > Brazilian Portuguese dictionary and started translating the manual and the in-game tips as best as we could.

Little by little, my brain began to memorize a few nouns, then a few verbs. We beat the game, jumped right into Zelda II and did the same. By the time we got to A Link to the Past, I could tell the meaning of most sentences without looking up words in the dictionary.

Today, I'm a professional English > Brazilian Translator, and it was all thanks to Zelda (and some Phantasy Star too). I used to translate mostly things in the fields of IT and marketing, but I recently boosted my income after trying my luck in another field: game localization. I've been doing lots of it, I feel great about it and the payment I get out of it is really improving my life. So, again, games are making my life better.

I own a gaming blog that's pretty popular here in Brazil, and last month I was invited to a gaming event in another state. They paid for my plane tickets and my lodging. It was a huge honor for me. Lots of lovely people came talk to me during the event. I finally met online friends I made when I started my Phantasy Star website 20 years ago. It was a very moving experience.

As a married man with a 4yo kid, I don't game as much as I did back in the day; in fact, it's increasingly hard to game at all. However, games are a huge part of who I am, so I'll always find the time to play them and keep them close to me. I feel really blessed to have gaming in my life.

Does anyone know if the Neo Cab demo will transfer progress to the full game? I want to know if I should play the demo with my main account if that's the case.

Yes it's the same as the vita with its fruit ninja combat.

Hard West ain't bad for the 4 Euros it's currently being sold at. I finished the goose, Ori's demo turned me off, and I have no motivation yet to restart hollow knight and go for the true ending. Hard West will do.

I enjoyed it. Fun mech combat and it's about 30 hours long. My only real complaints were that the boss enemies in the last few missions are kind of bullet-spongey, and the final boss forces you to pretty much abandon your play style and approach it in a specific way.

Who was the cat that was picking up Overland? Wheres the impressions?
it wasn’t me but I played 30 minutes on iPad and did not enjoy it one bit. It’s slow and plodding with drab simple graphics. The characters could not attack enemies which were on every block I would drive to. The game is driving linearly to towns gas stations etc, trying to find more gas to keep going. From East to west coast of US. Controls were sluggish and unintuitive. Barely any music. Every rest area looked identical like copy pasted.

if you like dodging enemies to pick up gas cans, then trying to “ram” one of those orange construction cones to escape a street, leading to the car literally exploding ending in a game over from trying to hit a 10 pound plastic cone with your CAR (lol), you may like the game.
It’s very possible it just isn’t my type of game but I had 0 fun playing it and deleted from my iPad. Never heard of this before Apple Arcade has it been hotly anticipated? Did I totally just not “get it”? Not sure but there are my impressions :)

I hope all you people will keep playing games whenever you have free time and whatever your mood is. If you are happy and content with your life, congratulations, now you have some games to play and you will certainly enjoy them. If you are in low point of your life and you are not happy, well congratulations too, because there are always games to help you alleviate the burdens and give you courage to move forward. Most importantly, I hope all of you will have fun playing videogames. :)
That was an awesome story. Thanks for sharing that. :)

finished zelda, post game blues are real. Dont really want to start anything with Dragon Quest 11 around the corner, and since i'm still not 100% sure im picking it up, I think i'll go ahead and play the demo which apparently you can play for like 10+ hours or something, so if I like it enough to buy it I can just carry on to the main game and it's like it's out now.

Okay so I'm not a big JRPG guy, but Ni No Kuni looks gorgeous. Is it really obtuse with its mechanics or fairly simple to get into?

So Moonlighter looks amazing and sounds amazing. But I understand the Switch version is very buggy. A couple of questions... How buggy exactly? I see people claiming to have to hard reset the situation literally every play session - is this true? And are the other systems any better? I think it's on GamePass and while I've never played my Xbox (and in fact just packed it up) I won a free trial in the giveaway thread so should I just wait until I play it there?

I want to buy a nice little indie game with pretty sprites. I'm considering Strikey Sisters too since that demo is fun af but I really want Moonlighter T_T

So since the Switch is 100% a portable for me, every time I play these full fledged 3D games in open spaces I get blown away, stuff like Xenoblade, BotW, Astral Chain, Bayonetta etc.

So yeah super impressed with DQ11, demo is pushing me to a buy. Bit of aliasing, a little soft but overall looks great and like I said, the whole 3d game portable the same as consoles (as opposed to a stripped down version like the old days) blows my old man mind.

I'm easy to impress I guess.

I played it back when it initially came out and had a great time with it. It's not hard to get into. There's a bit of a Pokemon-lite aspect to the combat, where you can capture monsters and have them fight for you. It's a pretty straightforward JRPG and well worth picking up.
