    Nintendo exclusives tend to, uhh, stay Nintendo exclusives.

    I used to have a 3ds and sold it, while in possession of a switch (Launch day).

    It was arguably a better game than FFXV. Better characters, better combat system, better worldbuilding... Even when you exclude all the stuff from previous FF games. That said, it's a bit of a slow burn. You kinda need to put aside any of your own pre-existing thoughts about the art style or how much 'like' other things it is and just take an insulin shot, sit down with it, and just accept the cheerfulness of the early parts and embrace the Tama.

    I'm sure either they got someone who talked like that normally, or it eventually grew on them and they talk like that all the time now. Although an odd way to handle the translation, it could have been done worse.

    OH BOY OLD MEMES

    I don't know why they couldn't just make the animal mascot talk in third person. ...or just not have it at all. Guess they wanted to attract the kids but it's too bad Square Enix forgot all the kids have 2DSs.

    I've heard nothing about this game but will probably pick it up when on sale. Final Fantasy has been very meh lately. So much pandering to being fashionable japanese than bloody fantasy RPGs. Final Fantasy XV is simply revolting.

    Oh wow, nice! I am a PC gamer first, and a console gamer second. I usually buy consoles just for the exclusives. But PC ports can be good, if they are done right.

    Look at the PC port of Metal Gear Solid 5, the PC port released months after the console release (if I can remember correctly anyway), and even though the game wasn't as good as previous Metal Gear games, the PC port was done extremely well. Metal Gear Solid 5 for PC was optimized so damn well, you could run it on a pretty barebones gaming PC and still have an awesome gameplay experience. So if devs would focus on optimizing and polishing their PC ports before releasing them, most people wouldn't have to worry about if PC ports will run good on their PC or not. Because lets face it, most PC ports now a days are ported so bad over to PC, some PC ports make it almost unplayble on PC.

    I was wondering if this was going to happen. I was interested in this a while back but since then my interest has seemed to wane away.

    This game has no Cecil or Golbez, and somehow Adult Edea is lesser compared to Yuna. Terra never had her Esper form, you never play as game characters, and it lacjs the depth of other games. Bravely, as silly as it is, is far better in strategy and actual plot.

    I really liked this game on vita (although it was really Bad on it technicaly speaking)! Never finished it (I'm playing from Time to Time and I've 30/40h of playtime) but really like it.

    I would buy it again if the cross save would be present, which I doubt.

    Poor Sony, developers are getting rid of the only reason people buy their consoles for, i.e. exclusives.

    It's true though. I'd rather play my games on my PC and a lot of the games I seem interested in getting or get on release end up coming out on PC eventually. I'm definitely happy that Capcom is finally localizing a PC Monster Hunter. I would have played Frontier ages ago if it was easily accessible.

    I have a mid-end PC, I mainly use it to work (Excel, Word, Photoshop to make drawings...) and to play indie games, I mainly game on console and that's what I'm more used to, I understand that on PC you'll usually get better graphics but I don't really care about game res

    Building a PC to play more recent games seems difficult and expensive... thus why I prefer to game on console

    I recently got a PS4 for my birthday and so far I've really enjoyed it, I currently own around 8 games (I have always owned Nintendo consoles but wanted to try something different) when I play on PC I can't do it without a controler...

    On console I don't need to mess with video setting or the controls... And sitting in front of the screen in a chair really makes my back hurt... that's why I don't like to play on PC

    I definitely understand. I apologize if my first post came off as PC Master Race-y. I just prefer playing on my PC when I can so I welcome all of the ports when they come. If I don't already have the games I can pick them up on my preferred platform. On the flip side I know many people who were overjoyed when Stardew Valley finally came out on Switch despite being on everything else already.

    2018 will probably be the year Square Enix starts porting more of their old games to PC, with 2017 being just the start of it.

    I have both for ps4 and Vita. I really enjoyed them, though the story can be slow in the beginning. Yeah it kinda like Pokemon, but it still quite different with strategy.

    played it on Vita and I at least didn't like it at all !

    they tried to make it cool in making it a "gotta catch'em all" game but for me it did not work at all.
    Usually you use the same few monsters trough the game as it makes most sense than changing them and this staple stuff makes it completely ridiculous
