        The highest TO ever did was 500k on the PSP, so if this does 250k we can expect Mastuno to work full-time with Square. Though I doubt it will break 100k at full price, and reviewers are going to give an 8/10 since they already hit the review quota with GoW (I am saying this unironically btw).

    - NEO would've sold 10x the copies if it was called TWEWY2, and making it a Switch "exclusive" (timed) would give it the Zelda/Mario bonus in review and sales.
    - HD-2D is a gimmick that is going to run out of steam.
    - Should've canceled Diofield and Valkyrie and put all that money into Star Ocean. One series at a time.
    - Learn to give a shit about WHEN you are releasing a game, you could always hold the game like Nintendo till the opportunity presents itself, not like 7 months of Twitter marketing ever done you any favors.

        Unless it's nuPokemon tier where characters are moving around a lot and even singing in complete silence without even any background music, no voice acting is a plus.

            Then use your imagination. Voice acting is fine to have at times, but it's never necessary in vidya unless the gameplay is built around it.

    For some reason X and XIII are ok to be linear but remake is criticized so much more seriously.
    With ff7 remake you look at bad first and foremost and then slightlly the good, while other games are just all good except this nitpicks, but they are not bad since "it has soul".
    You can feel the special treatment the game has.

      Diofield Chronicles

      I beat it in ~25 hours

      I have mixed feeling about the game
      >The main combat is poor-man RTS, very simple and barebone, but still quite fun
      >Enemies and even maps keep being reused and they keep spamming useless samey side-missions
      >Characters lack personality and their side-stories are meh and mostly not related to their personal issues at all
      >Combat-wise, characters are mostly generic. their personal skills aren't unique enough.
      >Adjutant gets so few EXP, reserved members get NO EXP and even active members don't get enough EXP to keep up with level creep every chapter, so switching up your party is not counter-productive.
      >So many resources to gather, so much money needed to upgrade your shit
      >Though, low level run + barely upgraded weapons are more than enough since the game is easy enough even on Hard
      >So many important story bits are resolved off screen
      >The last 2 chapters are extremely rushed, and Fred became retarded all of the sudden without any build up
      >The grand story is pretty much incomplete, though I'm satisfied with Rias' personal story

      That's a lot of negatives.

      I feel they really want to emulate Fire Emblem 3H experience, but RTS. This is a mistake. They should've went generic SRPG combat route like FE:3H or... especially Triangle Strategy. The spirit of this game is reaaaally similar to Triangle Strategy. Political conflict, war over resource, "mercenary" troupe etc
      This game would've benefited so much from 2D-HD style too. Lower budget and lower effort to make actual HD 3D sprites so they could've actually focused on writing longer dialogues and actually-complete grand story... with BRANCHING routes just like Triangle Strategy.
      This really could've easily been its spiritual successor...

      Man, what a waste of fucking potential...

      Rias and Fred's relationship the entire game reminded me of Mikazuki and Orga, except Mikazuki has the personality and intelligence of Ayanokouji

          2. Gather them all in 1 spot with Wyvern skill's Wings of the Storm
          3. Umarida (Sniper) use Headshot to AoE 1-shot most of them
          4. Cleanup with other AoE and Assassinate
          5. rinse and repeat

    XIV genuinely paid for all those failures and made them a profit anyway, and that's before DQX revenue. I think MMOs suck but the fact that they've made SE so much money that they kept giving the greenlight to AA games that feel like HD PS2 games is cool. Trials of Mana, NEO TWEWY, & Stranger of Paradise are all excellent. Remastering Tactics Ogre and the first 3 Front Missions is great. FF16 seems cool because it has a good combat director.

    Babylon's Fall is probably the worst game of 2022 and summer of that other stuff is bad, but I'm glad at least one publisher is putting their money into a bunch of different projects to see what sticks instead of 2 or 3 huge bloated AAA games. If only more publishers (maybe with better devs or smarter execs) could do something similar.

      The stunt doubles were really a dumb choice, they should have stuck with a more OC look which is exactly what they did with every character afterwards which boggles my mind. The funny thing is the game is on life support but it's in a far better state than it was at launch and is fine if you want mindless beat 'em up content. Still sucks that it cratered GotG.
