Just Shapes & Beats was released.

It's a bullet hell game with a rythm/mustic focus (similar concept as Thumper), and with a chiptune and drum & bass music score. Unlike most bullet hell games like Ikaruga and Touhou, the hell comes from every direction.

>a month for Capcom to get it unfucked

I take that back, Capcom's plan to unscrew the server issues are to wait for the player base to shrink such that their servers can handle it.

Another Switch game I want to try!
In Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, protagonist Travis Touchdown will fight his way through a bunch of different in-universe video games. One of the latest on display in a new trailer is Coffee & Doughnuts, an action-packed side-scroller. Check out a sample ahead of the game's January 18, 2019 launch on Switch below.

Fans Have Spent More Than $3 Billion on Fate/GO Worldwide

Mobile game Fate/Grand Order has pulled in more than $3 billion in microtransactions worldwide.

The game, while free to play, offers in-game currency and occasional increased chances at rolling higher-class Servants for real money. While not every player throws down real cash, the sales aren't insignificant: last month alone, microtransactions totaled $84.3 million worldwide, making Fate/GO the second highest grossing game of the month worldwide.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the game's total earnings come from close to home — $2.6 billion (approximately 86% of the total) was paid up by Japanese users. Chinese players contributed about $360 million, with US players coming in third at about $90 million, or 3% of the total. Despite the small percentage by comparison, Sensor Tower pointed out that this is a fairly significant amount of revenue, considering the Fate series is not as well known in North American markets as in Asian.

That's scary.
>> No. 13396 [Edit]
I still don't get why people like that so much, let alone how the hell it's making so much money.
Game mechanics suck, plot sucks, sprites and their animations are lazy, content is lacking, gacha odds are infamously terrible. Outside of grinding in combat there's nothing to do. Last I played it there was no customizable play room/area like many other games have. It also runs like shit and can't be played on rooted phones, older phones, or emulators.
Being a meme shouldn't account for this much success for so long.

How do you keep up with vg news?
I used to get all the information I'd ever need just by reading people's opinions on fast imageboards, but due to getting fed up with ford driver bullshit I've been avoiding all popular sites for a couple of years now. I never read any of that scummy paid "journalism" either.
It's like I'm living under a rock, and I miss games and stuff.
Is there any way to stay up to date and in the loop while avoiding normals?
I know it's weird but seriously, I'm such a fucking loser I feel so alien I can't even passively read their opinions and conversations without becoming a sobbing wreck.

Fate/Grand Order is now 4 years old! And four years on, the game has proven to be one of the most successful Japanese mobile games out there.

In its four-year run, Fate/Grand Order has become the No. 2 ranked mobile game for global revenue at US$84.3 million. It has also become an international success, being one of Japan’s highest selling apps in terms of revenue. It even defeated Fortnite as the most tweeted game of 2018!

I'm filled with mixed feelings. While not everything FGO has brought has been negative, I do sincerely hope it ends sometime soon. Not that I think it will, since it prints money, but oh well.

So, DQ11 got released on Switch. I think it was worth the wait. Has a delightful kind of anaesthetic/escapist quality I don't find in enough games. Battle system is kind of anachronistic or 'boring' as usual, but I like that. Besides, you know what you're in for.
>> No. 13656 [Edit]
I've really been enjoying it. DQ games have such a wonderful feeling of adventure to me, and the anachronistic battle system combined with the detailed, yet highly stylish modern visuals really draws me in.
>> No. 13657 [Edit]
I want to play it but I've been stuck in DQIX for the last months. I don't really like it when the stronger monsters become to easy, the grinding slow but the boss still kicks your ass.
>> No. 13658 [Edit]
Yeah, I'm in kind of that part on 11 postgame now. There is an "easy" way to grind to 99 but it involves getting lots of casino tokens which I find I don't have the patience for. Alternatively waiting for three characters to get pepped up which takes ages.

The Surge 2 came out a bit ago.

It's pretty damn good, they made some significant improvements to the combat system, the directional parry system was done very well and the way the city ties back into itself with unlockable shortcuts makes things very much like dark souls but on a size that is large enough for you to get lost in.

A new Total War Three Kingdoms DLC was announced today, the last one rated horribly as it really didn't introduce anything but a few reskins. It looks like they have not learnt from this as so far they have said there will be 40 new units but the units they have listed look to be reskins as well.

The rape of X-COM continues.

Firaxis is shitting out a "spinoff" which visually looks like a shitty mod, reusing nuXCOM assets with some absolutely hideous new models thrown in.
It pushes the dumbing down of tactics even further. For context, the design of XCOM2 was skewed towards providing cheap 'awesome' moments. The enemies were spawned in small squads to be conveniently flanked and ambushed by the player, rinse repeat. It was mildly amusing at first but in the end more of a puzzle game than real turn based tactics.
Apparently even that was too complex for the average consumer retard so now every mission will begin with an automatic ambush or "breaching" as they market it. Just place your units in one of the available starting locations and watch as the game practically plays itself in front of your very eyes. Try not to drool on your expensive rainbow LED pro gayming keyboard while awesome things happen on your monitor.
Squad is still 5 units only. And guess what, your units can't die anymore. Seriously. It's game over try again on soldier death now. At most a downed unit will get a temporary injury malus. And there's no recruiting, only a roster of ready made characters.
The cherry on top is the game is being directed by someone possessing the mentality equivalent of a YA fiction writer. The setting is retconned into one where people and aliens live in HAAAAARMONYYYY and must fight together against anti-diversity terrorists. Because it's 2020 and you need amerikan pseudoleftist ideology promoted in video games.

That story aspect of it feels so artificial that I feel like it has to be a bait and switch. They have ex-ADVENT propaganda people on your team? And a Viper? It feels so wrong that I have to hope it's a trick somehow.
