    That looks great!
    Please give us also Devil May Cry in the process.

    Nah.. an online is worthless and useless.. to me anyway.

    Good to see it imported to Nintendo Switch but is that really necessarily ? I hope that Nintendo Switch 2 of this year will have great 3rd party with a brand new games.

    Great for people who don't played those games and don't have a PS4/PS3.

    However, I don't hate port to the Switcht but I am getting sick of it because I already played those on PS3/PS4, that's all. LOL!

    Not as surprising as some of the PC ports we saw late last year (we saw a few random 360 exclusives, and they were not otherwise well regarded ones) but not something I had expected to see either. Quite an enjoyable game as well; when I was noting Zelda was nothing I had not seen before this was very much in mind.

    If they can make such things work here I would like to see such things also ported across to the android tablets as well now they are more readily surpassing the Switch -- there is no technical reason the game library there has to be filled with wallet rinsing nonsense.

    I forgot
    Meh. I own this game on 3 different systems already, not gonna waste any cash on this one.

    Would've rather seen an English translation of the DDO MMO myself, that would've been a much better option than a port of a 5 year old game. GG anyways Capcom.

    Hnnnnngggggg... I bought the original DD on 360, then DA, and also have it on the PC... but the idea of playing it portable is enough to make me want to get it again. Halp.

    Played this game like hell on my X360. This is really a underrated gem for me. The way the Sorcerers class cast magic was epic. I hope capcom makes another one like this. Which has a single player campaign still.

    Yeah it's stupid.
    No one is saying "Portstation" or "Port Box"


    Because in reality, those have been alive years longer than the Switch and the Switch basically has more exclusives than those already. xD
    But aside from that, I personally don't care. I agree that it sucks having to buy a game again just because I couldn't wait/didn't know the game was going to come out for THE HARDWARE I PREFER and it is already an old experience now, but I don't care.
    I also admit it does suck when people don't want to make new things, they just want to port things they made already for that dough so we get FAR LESS new things... But again. Their are so many games, who even cares. LOL It's a blessing when your favorite game comes on your favorite hardware.

    No you don't understand, Dragon's Dogma's sequel is a F2P(but surprisingly not P2W) MMO called Dragons Dogma Online. It is insanely fucking popular in japan and its's actually really good. Capcom never released it outside of Japan though. It can currently be played on PS4 or PC with a VPN and the PC version has an English patch. My only gripe is that your pawns AI is kinda garbage and cant be trained as they expect you to party up for harder quests but the appearance of the english patch has grown the western community to the point where finding a party you can communicate with isn't that hard anymore. Here is some gameplay.

    No, I understand well enough. Online is not my things. I don't care if its popular or something like that. I am not following people's way. Online is just not my things and never was and never will.

    Just like ... Hey, clothes style.. I am not following people's clothes style. My way and my style. :)

    I am fine with myself just like NES and SNES. Just being myself or invite friend over for a challenge. Its more fun and priceless. :)

    Yeah, Japanese people are crazy. Some of them are into every technology. And glue their nose into anything. I have seen them on the train and etc. Glue they noses into phone, portable video games and everything. Crazy.

    Not for me. Just saying. We are all different.

    On the one hand, I get what they're saying: the PS4 and WindowsBox One have so many remasters, and in the latter's case, it'd be nice if your digital and, dare I say, physical copies of games could be used for BC. Yeah, I know remasters have enhancements that anyone with a 750 Ti or 960 could experience with much better visual fidelity, controls (for anything that isn't a hack and slash or a fighting game, though I guess some people can play these on a KB/M), and graphics, especially IF mods are supported, but that's the problem: the remasters and cross-gen games really show how small the leap is from the PS3 to the PS4. Yeah, it's nice that Yakuza 0 and Kiwami run at 60 fps in addition to other enhancements (like actually being able to make things out in the distance as opposed to the TERRIBLE aliasing in the PS3 games), but on the base PS4 (the PS4 Pro isn't worth the upgrade IMHO, and I have a gold PS4, so I already have a 1 TB HDD that still fills up way too damn quickly for what it is!), there's noticeable screen-tearing. Not a game-breaking issue I suppose, but it still takes you out of the game when it happens. I know, The Witcher 3, Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War 4, The Order 1886, Last of Us 2, Infamous Second Son, and Uncharted 4 couldn't have looked or played as good as before, but it's still pathetic that, to get to 1080p, they have to use what's probably going to be a proprietary Ryzen chip to even get to something that people have been achieving for at least 10 years now!

    Hell, the only difference between Persona 5 on PS3 and PS4 is that the PS4 version has less aliasing, frame drops, screen tearing, and better resolution, something I'm confident RPCS3 users have managed to pull off via mods like that 60fps mod that, last I checked, still isn't flawless, but does make the game more pleasing visually in motion, and the better resolution's a given. Maybe if ATLUS-sama was to port the series from the PS2 onward to PC and maybe the Switch, they could focus on a Persona 6 that takes full advantage of the next generation of consoles' hardware with the money that they've been leaving on the table?

    I'm just saying, in spite of Yakuza 0's PC port problems, many people, myself included, were happy to see these games available in an official way on PC like most of Microsoft's exclusives that aren't titled Halo 5 (didn't see that one on PC). Now if only they could fix it up after porting Kiwami (here's to hoping they learned their lesson and can fix the many, many issues the PC port of 0 had, comparison shots are available if you're curious about the glaring lighting issues), then people could experience the beginning of the Yakuza series chronologically in some way. Then, port Kiwami 2 and 3-6 and then we'd have the complete package (outside of good spin-offs like Kenzan! and Ishin!, anyways) as they try to go worldwide and I think multiplatform starting with Judgement? At least, I know they said Judgement would be getting a worldwide release.

    Mostly because they are being dubbed remastered or enhanced versions, and plenty of people are not overly impressed with that.

    Back when the PSP launched having a web browser of any merit in a portable device was new. As the internet is for porn so it followed a few sites played to it (or played on it as the case may be) and we got the playstation pornable.

    Right. Because a game being orignally launched for PS4 with superior graphics and later getting ported to Switch with *HIGHLY* compressed graphics and no new features is "Remastering it" or "Enhancing" it...
    Right. XD Outlast 1 and 2 are good examples.
    DOOM is the biggest culprit. I thought the graphics were great until I saw the PS4 one... And Snapmap is GONE in the later version? XD Enhanced, right....

    Resident Evil Remaster is a good remaster. Resident Evil Remaster didn't even NEED new outfits, play control style, etc. but they added it anyway making the remaster EVEN BETTER.

    LOL Personally, I look at it as when a game is ported to our favorite console, that's great.
    But when a game is ported as a remaster/Deluxe/anything that is not just an average port, it really looks bad.
    I'd rather they ported New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe as New Super Mario Bros. U.
    Not Deluxe because they act like it's a new game so now this "NOT-new-game" needs to be treated as a separate game in the New Super Mario Bros. series. So all of the accomplishments and greatness the next new New super Mario Bros. game is, this "New Super Mario Bros. game called Deluxe" is just as accomplishing, apparently. It's like staining the series, honestly. Don't even call it something new. Even if you add new great things. Don't even call it a remaster either.
    I feel games shouldn't really be ported unless it's necessary. This was NOT necessary.
    And I feel that games should not deserve a whole reserved spot for just being a relaunch and given all of the candy and royal treatment that an ACTUAL NEW GAME IN THE SERIES gets. That's very unfair for the original games that are actually the next best thing to have to compete with something that is pretty lazy/money grabbing material when it was great the first time around and needs no port. ESPECIALLY no port that is treated as if it's just as great as the last thing.
    Virtual Console is a good, balanced situation. The games are ported, but they aren't treated like a separate game in the series.
    We don't say:
    Super Smash Bros. 64
    Super Smash Bros. Melee
    Super Smash Bros. Melee Virtual Console Enhanced Remastered Port version
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    ... You get my point. Same with any port. We don't say "Blablabla XBOX 360 Ver." unless the version were ACTUALLY different games. Like 3DS and Wii U. Super Smash Bros. A good example is Soul Calibur 2 has different features through it's different version. And we do address the version when we need to know we want the one with our precious Link as a fighter, But we CERTAINLY don't say Soul Calibur 1, Soul Calibur 2 PS2, Soul Calibur 2 XBOX... Etc.
    (CAPCOM doesn't get the idea or point with Street Fighter 2, though, -_-)

    such lazy ports should not be considered a whole fresh new game. NOW we are forced to say:
    New Super Mario Bros.
    New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    New Super Mario Bros. 2
    New Super Mario Bros. U
    New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

    See what I mean? Because it's not the same name, or just "Remastered" it's literally now forced to have a fresh seat that it is certainly undeserving of. Ruining the flawless unique name differences in the lineup. AND game differences in the unique lineup of each game.

    Here's one last good example.
    We DO SAY Resident Evil, Resident Evil Remake (Or REmake), Resident Evil 2....
    But we don't have Remaster in it's own seat because it's just the same as REmake. While REmake is certainly not the same as Resident Evil 1.

    I know you guys are all like "Dude... Who cares."
    BOII EYY KEERE! XDD

    Back to the point... *Cough* Yeah... I can't wait for this. I love Dragon's Dogma and bought it on PS3 and PS4..... XDDD

    I don't mind this one too. 1-4 and possibly first time 5th game for PS4 and XBOX and now Switch? Doubt but who knows. They might surprise us like this one.
