... so it's Attack of the Friday Monsters all over again, then — interesting story, but lacking in gameplay depth. ah well, it'll at least be worth that first playthrough :3

They said that the concept is quirky (in a good way), and RPG fans will appreciate the charming story that humorously riffs on all the RPG clichés, but underneath it's quirky surface is a disappointing gameplay experience, which is not only repetitive, but also very shallow, with no depth to be had.

I dunno, the way Tech took to it, it actually sounded interesting from a gameplay perspective. And personally I'm much more willing to trust Tech's opinion than any of NWR's reviewers...

Not trying to be rude here but how is this even RPG? Isn't it a rhythm game that make swords?

Yep, it's not at all an RPG. It does have a sense of humour which would appeal to RPG fans though.

As for the disappointing gameplay experience, honestly I'd call this a visual novel with a rhythm minigame. You're going to want to play this game to read about the adventurers, not make weapons. It's designed by a comedian, after all.

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I will add further impression after playing some more. First of all this is not a review bu if i had to give it a number score i would say 7/10.

This should not be considered a rhythm game by any means. If you go in thinking that you will come away extremely disappointed!! The rhythm parts are extremely easy and the tunes they use are generic and you won't be humming any of them.

Now that that is out of the way like @Jollykarp said this should be considered a narrative style game first and for most. Lots of funny parts and mostly likeable cast. Could do without the audience though. The main problem i've seen so far is even though the grindcast provides most of the enjoyment out of the game , the game doesn't give you a whole lot of time to read it. You can be reading multiple peoples adventures at the same time and you get interrupted quite often while you are doing stuff. If a customer walks in the door while reading, trying to search out a weapon to forge, of looking over requests it will take you out of what your doing to go talk to them. That's my biggest complaint about the game and it's also day based and doesn't tell you when the day is over either. In otherwords no game clock.

The weapon forge although easy can be deep if you so choose. There is a good variety to choose from. The customer/adventurer will place a order. You will see what they like for a weapon style and the enemy/enemies they will encounter. They will also display the weakness of the enemies and it's your job to craft a weapon as powerful as you can to help them defeat the monsters and come back with you weapon and money. They will also find various materials to craft with to add to making the weapons even stronger ie a special attack like thunder will be added.

There really isn't much more to it then that. The last weapon i crafted was a baseball bat. Wonder where they got the inspiration fro that one lol!

Bottom line is if you're a rpg fan you will like it. If you're not sure it's for you then wait for a sale and minimize the risk. It is repetitive for sure but can be fun if you go in wanting to forge the best weapons to get the adventurers to complete a successful quest.

Your review is right on I have put in quite a bit of time in on the Weapon Shop and I'm absolutely loving it. I would give it a an 8/10. The games quirky play and excellent writing really just makes you smile. This game wins as one of the funniest games ever. The game cast play by play is just hilarious. Thanks for the recommendation. I love the audience its all part of the laughs. If one chooses too really get into this and make the weapons and read the Grindcast, I don't see how just about anyone couldn't have a great time with this. I thought it would be neat and take the grindcast a bit farther and show the actual encounters via a replay or something similar. The Grindcast is very cool though.

Is it much better than An Item Shop Tale (Given that I have already played that).

It might be a bit too soon to know this, but are the adventurers that come to your shop all... static? Or is it all kind of randomized?

So like, after playing through once, if you played through again would it just be the same adventurers coming to you? Or would they change?

I feel like that would be key for me, because I would want to know that the next time I play there might be different adventurers who say different things on their quests.

I can't see it any different the second play through. Other then the selected quests and or different requests for weapons I'm pretty sure you will see the same adventurers in pretty much the same order. There seems to be a center story line revolving around all the characters the further you get into it.

The named adventurers are static, but the unnamed ones are randomised. Their order might be a little different, but they'll have the same story the second time through.

Also, which characters do you guys like the most? I found Mei Feng and Mei Long hilarious because they're perfect send ups of those Chinese period dramas I watched back in language school.

I've been deciding whether to get this or not and I decided I will be. It seems like a lot of people just don't like it for not being a game it was never meant to be in the first place. From what I've seen on the miiverse, it seems like the perfect "inbetween" game to play around with and laugh at when you need a break from the stressful long games you're playing and for 8 bucks, it sounds like a worthy buy to me.

Currently playing: M&L: Dream Team. Ace Attorney Dual Destinies

Waiting for: Kirby Triple Deluxe, Super Smash Bros, Puzzle & Dragons Z, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney

Jean and Grape are my favorites so far. Jean of cousre started out rough but he is ending up being quite the hero!! He is also very funny and even though he can be a hard read at time love the accent! As for Grape everything about him i should hate and 95% of the time i do hate his character type but here he is absolutely funny! Some of the things they get away with saying about him like the monsters are just great! His reaction is also great! I'm surprised it got past Nintendo's quality checks! Some of those are politically uncorrect. Also love his intro music!

@feelthesarcasm You should like it just fine! It's a very good read and laugh game! Weapon making for me is also fun as later on you can really add a lot to the weapon making process. That makes me believe a lot of reviewers didn't finish the game or knew about it but still didn't think it was deep enough. I still haven't figured out how to master a weapon yet!

I actually love this game, bought it last night and poured a good few hours into it, very addicting and hilarious at times. The characters are quirky and quite likeable once you get to know them. Seeing one of the main heroes coming into the shop always brings a smile to my face!
