Definitely Resonance of Fate.

    Out of these, Resonance of Fate is what catches my attention most. I did try Soul Caliber VI during the open beta but the loading and matchmaking times were atrocious and the game itself is just not my kind of game.

I’d love to play Orichi and Resonance but I need to finish some stuff first.

Why didn’t you guys list The Missing in this week or last week’s releases? Found out about it randomly and I WAS looking forward to it. It’s a bit more expensive than I’d like but hopefully it’ll be worth it.

why did you force XSEED to censor Senran Kagura while Nintendo and Steam is going for content like that? I don’t care if this is not the right place, but please, change your guidelines. They are absolute nonsense. I don’t want to abandon this brand but now I’m seriously thinking in do it.

    what do you mean it was censored? In what way was it? Even if it was, it has enough fan service and such that I can only say that the games CURRENTLY on Playstation are before what Steam and the Switch got, you just want a patch that “uncesors” something that is probably minor to the point we already still have people using the dlc to “uncensor” it for you? Cherries here, peach there… i don’t need to go on. I saw what happened after the DLC Waves stopped, i was honestly unnerved despite buying the game.

    Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal is being delayed in the West in order to remove the interactive “Intimacy Mode” from the PlayStation 4 version.

    Teflon02 said:

    October 16th, 3:23 pm

    It’s likely just simply Sony seen the game had a mode called intimacy mode and the characters are underage so… you know they’re not with promoting that

Gotta get me that Palm Reading Premium!! Ohhh yeah. Can’t wait for it.

I loved Soul Calibur 1-4, especially 4, which still holds up well. SC 5 was extremely bland as was that unnumbered SC game whose title I forget.

I am not hyped for Soul Calibur 6. I’m happy to wait for reviews and a discount. Also, I would recommend avoiding the season pass, deluxe editions, etc. for SC6. Why? Bandai Namco was happy to take preorders for season passes for Ni No Kuni 2. To date (almost 7 months after release), the season pass is just money spent, nothing delivered. They have said something about some content coming next year. They were not upfront about this until months after the release. They should either have been honest and told people that it might be a year for content. (Obviously that would have diminished sales.) Or maybe they should have waited to sell the SP once they had something in the pipeline. Many of us don’t trust Bandai Namco. As I just pointed, there is good reason for that.
