I can't see "Radiant Historia" without thinking of "Radiata Stories." It happens every single time.

Also, Bloodstained really needs to get its Kickstarter page updated. Still lists the WiiU version with an estimated release of March 2017.

God Wars release got pushed to June 20th in the US. Japan had it pushed a while ago and then the US release finally got pushed a few weeks ago. Reading about the delay, the devs are making some major changes due to feedback.

So it has!

But boy, even a couple months really isn't enough time for "major changes."

Radiant Historia: I can't wait to play through this fantastic game again. I know the game did have its tedious moments (going across the same stretches of dungeon just to activate the flag for an event since not all of the timeline events dropped you off close to them), but this game was very enjoyable to play and everything about its story was genuinely good. I know Altus will give it a solid dub when it gets announced for localization.

I don't blame you there. Remember when Radiata Stories was actually relevant and a subject of discussion on game forums? Yeah, it didn't last long. Interesting concept and lots of recruitable allies, but not everyone in Radiata was born equal in combat (the fairy route is full of really bad choices too). There were so many characters you would never use (though I always try out every character in games with lots of teammate options to get a gauge of their skills). In addition, its story clearly needed more work because it was rushed in both routes. Jack was also a terrible protagonist.

God Wars: Future Past: A traditional style SRPG like Saiyuki or Jeanne D'Arc? Sounds good to me. Only difference here is the job class option, which technically makes your team of fourteen more diverse, but you could always opt to not change everyone from their default class to keep it "traditional" in the sense each character is locked into their profession.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX: At this point, the joke seems to be how many times can they keep re-releasing the games before KH3 comes out. XD

Mario Sports Superstars: So it's like a portable version of Mario Sports Mix basically? And what's this about early word on it not being good? Is it bland, or riddled with problems?

Interesting to see the term "hunting game" being used to describe Toukiden and the like. I thought it was a term used exclusively by gaming boards like Gamefaq but the usage seems more widespread now.

Very relieved that Nintendo got the Joy-Con issue resolved with a simple fix. Smile Still biding my time before I buy the Nintendo Switch...
