@moomoo: if they're gonna do something like this, it makes sense for them to do it right and treat it like any other major console release. You can't say that 'only' current TWEWY fans were excited over the teaser site — sure, we were probably the most vocal, but even people who have no idea what's going on will get hyped up over a teaser site. what makes this different from any other teaser site out there?

Squeenix owed it to their iDevice-owning fanbase to treat this as a proper major-console release, and that's fine. The only thing wrong with what they did was not informing people up-front which device(s) it would be coming for so that 3DS/Vita owners wouldn't get stoked over something not for their platform of choice.

also, if you look at the 'what's new' thing, they didn't take away the dual-partner combat. they worked it out so that it's all happening on the same screen.

... dangit, i'm pretty disappointed over this. I was looking forward to potentially having a reason to own a Vita. :(

@moomoo: why shouldn't there have been a teaser for it? I greatly feel they should've been up-front regarding which platform this was gonna be on (so fans hoping for a 3DS sequel wouldn't have gotten their hopes up so hard), but they've gotta do their best to sell it. they can't be faulted for that.

@Justaguest: No need to get nasty over it, Geonjaha does have a point — if you're spending all your time playing any one single game and doing nothing else at all, you do have a bigger problem at hand than just the game itself, but for those who are capable of setting limits for themselves and abiding by them, there's no problem with a limitless game like this. If you're having trouble with it, perhaps setting a timer would help you to keep better track of how long you're spending playing this game exactly? Or if your problem is truly serious, if you've got Windows you can go ahead and set the parental controls to not allow you to play certain games beyond a preset approved time limit each day — that could help to curb your habit maybe :3

But you WERE a mod at one time, right? (Or was that sean?) Regardless, from what he told me he said that after he made that post and got banned, he wanted to be deleted from the site permanently because he like OMN better (Understandable), but the mods left him banned instead in case he wanted to come back. Because of that he can't stand the mods here anymore, and I don't know why. I left SerebiiForums a few years ago because a cyber bully wouldn't stop saying things that I can't talk about here, and wanted to be deleted then, but they just left me on. A year ago I decided to come back because of Black and white. So he should be happy that the mods aren't deleting him.

(a) you're thinking of Sean_Aaron, probably. Sean stepped down long before your friend was banned, i forget why off top of my head though. He still posts on occasion. Tasuki has never been a mod, but generally if someone leaves a helpful post redirecting a user to the appropriate thread when I go to lock a duplicate, I'll leave that post standing to end the thread as I lock it. I can see where the confusion would come from there, but if ever you want to check and see who's staff and who's not, we have a staff page here that lays everyone out for you. :3

(b) I get that your friend is unhappy, but in the end the business is between us and him, TheDreamingHawk. I've been over this with you before. I'm sorry that he's bothering you about it IRL, but I'd appreciate it if you'd drop it now, please and thank you.

(c) no, users can't lock their own threads. if a user asks, though, we'll usually go ahead and lock it for them.

@Mickeymac, et. al — yes, Miss_Birdo was indeed KaiserGX the entire time.

@PlasticRevolver: yeah, you could mash buttons for the top screen stuff, but depending on how you choose to play the game the right hits from Neku's partner in the right places can make or break a battle for you, especially with those team attacks you could build up and stuff. plus spamming that one move with Joshua was definitely a help :3

@Otaku: if it all turns out to be just an IOS port (which i doubt, but still), then they're hyping it for all those people who've never played it before. as people who have played the game at least once, we don't own a monopoly over it or anything; in that case, who says they were even aiming that teaser at us in the first place? they'd have hyped any game the same way.

^ Well, glad you've got that figured out, then, Otaku. Can we please get back to the topic at hand now?

Personally I think porting TWEWY to IOS is a great move — Squeenix has ported other games to IOS, and with Ghost Trick having come out as well it kinda makes sense in a way. I'm pretty intrigued to see how they're gonna handle the battle system considering it relied quite heavily on the dual screens. I just don't want this to only be an announcement for an IOS port or anything; i want something TWEWY-related for my 3DS (or hell, a Vita) as well. :(

@Happy_Mask: You shouldn't be running out of health so quickly. Are you using Sharla? If you are and you're still not getting enough health, make sure her Arts are set to where she's got all blue (healing) stuff and maybe one or two damage-inflicting arts (that sometimes-instakill move of hers is great to have IMO). If she's not in your party and you ever find yourself having trouble keeping your health up during battles, put her into your party and make sure she's got all blue Arts like I said already. :3 Also, be sure to use the Monado Shield Art to block any numbered enemy attacks (keep it leveled up so that it can block them, naturally).
