The problem is people are willing to accept it. I won't. It's ridiculous that a series as popular as Ace Attorney isn't getting a physical release in North America when there are a multitude of ways around it: making it an online exclusive order, making a limited print run, releasing it only to certain retailers, hell, why not do something like LimitedRunGames are release only a very small run like 3000 units? All of these options would get me to buy it. Digital only? No. Won't.
Yo have you heard of the game Birthdays? Seems up your wheelhouse. Dinosaurs.
Birthdays, the newly announced simulation game from Bokujou Monogatari (Harvest Moon / Story of Seasons) creator Yasuhiro Wada and Toybox Games, will come to North America and Europe via NIS America, Japanese publisher Arc System Works announced. Arc System Works also opened the game’s Japanese teaser website today, providing a minute-and-a-half of gameplay footage. The “life creation garden game” will let players create, steadily evolve, and develop environments on new lands where living things are born. From ancient plants and dinosaurs, and going as far as humanity, players will aim to give birth to a variety of living things, and create a world where living things that under ordinary circumstances would live in different eras can coexist. Birthdays is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan on January 19. Arc System Works did not mention a release date for the western release at this time.
Yes, it's a more powerful console. But not "light years" more powerful thank to the memory mapper chips the Famicom got in its later years. If you compare the same game on both platforms - say, Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, you can tell both systems were cut from the same cloth. Even the controllers are nearly identical! And that's not anywhere near a bad thing, as both systems are amazing. I don't own a TG16, but I do have a PC Engine. and I love it too. HuCards (or TurboChips as they were called in the west) are cooler than any cartridge. PC Engine has the best version of Parasol Stars and that's the best Bubble Bobble game bar none.
Yes, by a large margin. The MegaDrive was a distant third.
Remember those early attack ads Sega of America had where "Genesis does what Nintendon't"? Those were meant to contrast how much better the Sega Genesis was to the Nintendo Entertainment System since the Super Nintendo wasn't out for at least a year at that point.
Well, in Japan, the PC Engine was the serious threat to the Famicom. Remember, Japan got the PC Engine in 1987.
Ouya Inc claimed that many indie devs were complaining to them that they didn't have time to create demos for their games. Which is total bullshit. All you have to do is create either a shut off point after a set number of levels or a timed demo if it's an adventure game or visual novel.
The fact is, demos were extremely effective for getting me to buy Ouya games. There'd be a lot of games I'd see and think "yeahhhh I dunno..." and then go purchase as soon as I finished the demo. I even did this on camera during one of the Ouya games reviews I did. Since they dropped the policy, I've only bought a handful of Ouya games since. OUya games being retro themed, I know within 30 seconds of playing it if I'll buy it or not. That's why demos are important.
