(making budget decisions)

With the September-October release schedule being as crowded as it is, I think I'm going to have to skip buying Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot day-one and just wait for a deep discount. And that's a tough call for a DBZ fan like myself. I own copies of FighterZ, World Mission, and Xenoverse 2. I love me my Dragon Ball.

Unfortunately, all the various boutique publishers and my upcoming Birthday import extravaganza have effectively torpedoed my budget for next couple months. Oh well, I suppose I can take solace in the fact that Bamco usually overproduce physical copies of their games. High profile Bamco physical releases in Murica usually reach 50% mrsp shortly after release.

Are you getting the SRG Deponia collection?

@Zuljaras Yup. I'm keeping that complete-SRG-collection train moving. I threw down $150 on the newest bundle yesterday. Ouch. Then today we've got preorders opening for Love Esquire and The Letter via Play-Asia. Ooooof! And who knows what kind of preorders LRG will shadow-drop tomorrow?

These limited print companies have been working me over this month.

@Magician I just hope they have the save files fix on the cartridge as many people are asking about it but SRG are not responding at all.

Welp sounds like Ni no Kuni II was a good port so that’s on the BF haul list. I just wish Bamco would give us a soul calibur game.

@Ryu_Niiyama It makes me wonder who handled the port job? Game Engine was the development team responsible for the port of the first game, but I don't believe they were contracted for the sequel.

Pop the cork 🍾

A lot of us had been waiting for Cruis'n Blast to get a Switch port since it released in arcades in 2017

@JaxonH Wow. Have all the arcade games had a home console release?

@FragRed
All the Cruis'n games have now, yes. And Raw Thrills recently hinted at a Switch collection with Cruis'n USA, Cruis'n World and Cruis'n Exotica all bundled together.

@JaxonH Really hope they do. I just can’t stop playing. It’s the arcade racing I have been wanting for so long. It’s got to be my favourite game the year.

Yes yes yes! You get it. A lot of people don't get it. They don't understand the appeal. The hype. The unbelievable excitement.

I'm not sure it's my favorite game of the year- Monster Hunter Rise would certainly have to take that spot. But it's up there. And, it scratches a particular itch no other game has scratched or even could scratch. It's the best true arcade racing game I've ever played. Easily. All the best ones before have been indies or retro titles. We've been waiting so long for this. It's like having the arcade in your pocket, PLUS a World Tour with 24 additional tracks and difficulty modes.

I'll say this. Cruis'n Blast is a must-own on Switch as much as Zelda, Mario, Splatoon or any other high class exclusive. Not that it'll provide the same amount of content, or that it offers technical parity, but it's simply the absolute best of its genre. Simple as that. If you want classic N64 era arcade racing, no other game does it better.

I would like to see Animal Crossing Sports Festival (Sport games compilation like Olympic games) or Animal Crossing Chronicles of the Kingdom (JRPG style game like Miitopia) or Animal Crossing World Builders (Dragon Quest Builders style).

I don't think a JRPG would suit the Animal Crossing IP very much. A major feature of AC is that there's no story, no drama, it's just aimless. To transpose the characters from that chill, aimless world into a random adventure just doesn't fit very well in my eyes.

Perhaps a spin-off based on the adventures of Gulliver could generate something though.

@gcunit
Since a lot of peoples like to make a recreation of movie scenes or video clip in ACNH, I think the best spin-off for Animal Crossing is Animal Crossing Superstar with gameplay like The Sims Superstar and ability to make specific scenes for movie shooting with tons of gestures. Think Animal Crossing + The Sims Superstar + Youtubers Life 2

A JRPG could fit Animal Crossing very well, if they keep it lighthearted that is. Don't want Timmy and Tommy being offered to a demon lord or anything like that. 😱

Was the first game a bad port? I played it on ps4 and bought the Switch version in support but haven’t done anything with it yet because I still haven’t developed chronokinesis yet or immortality. Either or.
