Yeah, I missed all of Sami's time in NXT and only saw a little of Nakamura's time. Sami's stuff with Neville is near the top of my list of NXT matches I should watch, and I've heard so much great things about his match with Nakamura that I'll definitely see that match at some point too. For Nakamura, the first match I saw from him in NXT was against Joe, I think the match when Joe won the title, and to be honest I thought that match was pretty dull. The second time I saw him wrestle was his main roster debut with Dolph, which again I thought was pretty dull, so I didn't really get off to a great start with Shinsuke but I do like him, especially better than I did at first. I'll definitely check out those matches, and the Asuka one too, though I'll probably save those for April. I like to spend my free-time in March with anime, and I've been doing a bad job at that as it is. The match with Angle is the one that interests me the most and I might check that one out sooner than April, Angle's an all-time favorite of mine. He was on his way out when I started watching wrestling but I kinda feel like if I grew up watching Angle would be my all-time favorite, he's been involved in many of my favorite matches. I'll also probably try and search up that Lesnar match at some point, didn't know they ever fought and along with Sheamus, Shinsuke is actually one of the guys I wanted to see Lesnar tangle up with if he decides to stick around.

Hearing that submission stuff about Shinsuke in NJPW makes me more excited. One of the reasons I was bored by the Joe match I saw because it felt like Nakamura's offense was limited to just knee strikes, and while that clearly isn't true even in WWE, adding submissions in greater capacity to his arsenal would probably do a lot to improve my opinion of him. I did love his armbar RKO counter. Speaking of submissions, that Asuka match being all submissions sounds pretty interesting. To be honest, as much as I love submissions, a match being mostly or only submissions doesn't sound like a great idea, like it'd run the risk of feeling like a bunch of rest holds or removing the drama of submissions but if there's anyone who I think can pull it off, it's probably Asuka. I tend to find her matches to be a lot more interesting than most, so I'm looking forward to seeing her pull that off.

And huh, turns out that was the channel I saw Asuka perform Rakugo on, I should've checked into that sooner. Subscribed, I'll definitely be going through that in April. Thanks for all the links btw. & wow, didn't know Asuka booked that Suzuki thing, I knew she did some of her own booking and her booking that kinda aligns with what I figured her stance was but still, much respect to her for that.

And yeah, I also completely missed the Bayley/Sasha matches in NXT, and those are the top of my list of NXT matches I need to watch. My friend considers their Ironwoman match as one of his all-time favorite matches, and I think he cited the feud as reinvigorating his love for wrestling. He's been telling me to watch those matches for years and I've never yet found the time to watch them (I was out of wrestling for awhile, and going through Asuka & AJ Styles matches were more important to me when I got into it).

And well, we know now what Asuka will be doing at Mania, I'm obviously stoked but what do you think of it? Since I know you wanted Alexa. One thing I will say, is I like that Asuka is sticking around on Raw for a little bit it seems, at least until she finishing things off with Alexa this Monday. Not only because a double dosage of Asuka is great or because it negates the biggest problem with Asuka choosing Charlotte (the false perception that she's running from Bliss) but because of how much emphasis WWE is placing on Asuka around the board. I'm so glad that they're treating her as such a big attraction.

That said, I don't really care about Alexa/Nia. This match has been basically building since after Payback last year when Bliss first starting sweet-talking Nia, and whilst I appreciate long-form story-telling but, as you could probably tell, I'm pretty much over Alexa as Champion, I feel her reign has been pretty stagnant for a long time and more importantly, I think they kinda butchered the storyline when Nia turned on Alexa during the build to No Mercy and then like two weeks later was her best friend again without any explanation (and not only that, but the dropped the entire dynamic of Nia trying to get a Championship match from Bliss while Bliss tries to avoid it without pissing off Jax). They did that same thing with Mickie, Mickie like rejected Alexa's offer to work in the Chamber match together in the backstage segment, then Mickie was like randomly heel and friends with Alexa after the Chamber match.

Haha yeah, the final four was genius in that way. They did something similar last year, having Roman come out 30 and being the last one eliminated basically ensured Orton's victory would get a great reaction. I think my favorite part of the Women's Rumble was when Asuka mocked Ember's injured arm, but both those moments were great too. I would've definitely been down for a Trish/Sasha match at Mania, maybe one day. Though I'd honestly prefer Bayley/Sasha getting on the card to Trish/Sasha I think. I just hope Bayley/Sasha isn't relegated to the unfortunately named Battle Royal.

Owens' KO Mania III shirt is amazing, definitely considering picking that one up myself. And I get what you mean with Sasha's shirt (though for Sasha I'd more consider the glasses, even though I can't help but think they're impractical), I actually put off buying an Asuka shirt for a long time because I wasn't too happy with most of the designs she got. Rob Schamberger did this really cool Asuka painting/print semi-recently that I really hope eventually makes it's way to a WWE T-Shirt since I know they do that sometimes.

I missed out on the Attitude Era (though I've seen several segments and matches from it) but this is probably my favorite roster we've ever had, though the rosters in like 02-04 I also liked a lot from what I've seen. Most of those are also my favorites though I wouldn't put Sami or Shinsuke up there for me yet. I barely watch anything outside of WWE, and I missed most of Nakamura's run and I've found his work on the main roster mostly underwhelming, though he was great in the Royal Rumble and I loved when he countered the RKO into an Armbar. Also thought his moment with AJ Styles in the Money in the Bank match was pure magic, and I'm kinda hoping the Mania match with AJ finally makes Shinsuke click with me. I'll probably check his match with AJ in New Japan out after their Mania match though, since I don't want to go into their Mania match comparing it to their New Japan one. The Usos would probably be the next on my favorite list, their match with The New Day at Fastlane is the only one I'm really interested in watching. Neville would absolutely be near the top of my list though if he ever returns.

Ah yes, thanks for the heads up but I'm well aware of her time in Kana. Whether that be her wrestling, or her a time as game journalist for an X-Box magazine, the motion capture work she did for Virtua Fighter 5 (granted I don't know to what extent, which is slightly annoying because if she did like a full moveset for someone that's probably enough to convince me to buy it [though I also just like fighting games already, so I'm not like that big of a fan that'd I buy something solely for Asuka]), she did some graphic design work for the DS I believe, and I also have seen her perform Rakugo, which as a big fan of Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu I think is really awesome. All that said, I haven't actually seen any of her matches, just a few clips (I did see a clip from an intergender match where it looked like wrestler (Minoru Suzuki I think) was pummelling her to death. Like she definitely took some brutal shots, but anyway, if you have any match suggestions let me know. There's so much stuff I wouldn't even know where to begin.

And I was honestly hoping Sasha would win the Elimination Chamber match, and we'd get Asuka vs. Sasha at WrestleMania. Both with how their match went, and the following week where we saw Sasha analyzing and watching it back (before Bayley gave her that sick burn), I thought they might've been building to almost a Shawn Michaels/Undertaker storyline, where Sasha gets obsessed with breaking the streak, and turns heel in the process. But alas, Alexa Bliss won which I thought was a pretty boring result.

We'll probably find out who Asuka chooses next week, and I'm thinking tonight is going to give us a big indication of who that'll be. If Asuka vs. Nia ends with something like what happened at Elimination Chamber, or this time with Alexa Bliss attacking alongside her, Asuka choosing Charlotte is going to unfortunately make it look like Asuka is running away from them, which I think WWE would like to avoid. However, if that doesn't happen, if Asuka beats Nia more soundly (and maybe kicks Alexa's head off post-match if she tries to jump her) or if Alexa is out there during the match and ends up accidentally causing Nia to lose, or in general just something that makes Asuka look stronger leaving the match, I think we'll get Charlotte at Mania, and Bliss will probably fight Nia (this was a match they were kinda building to for half her reign). I actually do think Charlotte's more interesting from a story POV, mostly because Asuka's already beaten Alexa Bliss cleanly on Raw not too long ago. Considering Charlotte & Asuka have been kept away from each-other and Charlotte has beaten Alexa Bliss cleanly too, they can make a better case for Charlotte as a threat for the streak. I do agree that the women's division on SDL is awful though, but to be honest, I was feeling that way about Raw's until Asuka showed up. Well, it was still better than SDL's even then, and at the time I was glad Mickie James was giving an angle but Sasha getting another incredibly short reign made me pretty bitter, and what happened to Bayley was even worse.

The main reason I'm concerned about the idea of Asuka going to SDL is because of Carmella. I kinda feel like if Asuka's chooses Alexa, it's because WWE remembered she had the briefcase and plans for her to cash-in at WrestleMania. I'd rather Asuka's streak doesn't end due to cash-in, and I can't imagine WWE having the first ever Women's Money in the Bank winner fail her cash-in. Though maybe Carmella could cash-in on Alexa, I don't recall if WWE ever specified that she could only cash-in on the Smackdown Women's Champion. On the flip side, I kinda want to keep Asuka away from Ronda Rousey, so that's another reason why I'd like her on SDL. And lol yeah, poor Becky Lynch. I hope if Charlotte doesn't face Asuka at Mania, she faces Becky instead.

Oh boy, WrestleMania XX might be my favorite PPV, a shame it's been tainted, but WrestleMania XIX is actually another strong contender, I've just never found the willpower to sit through that Vince McMahon/Hulk Hogan match so it doesn't feel right to say it's my favorite considering I haven't seen all of it. It's actually my favorite of all the Austin/Rock Mania matches, though I'm a bit unusual because X-Seven is actually my least favorite of their Mania matches. And I remember Rock's return in 2011 being pretty crazy. I still remember hearing all these rumors that the host of WrestleMania would be like Justin Bieber or something, but I don't recall ever hearing The Rock. It didn't mean the same to me as many since I started watching wrestling so late but it was definitely cool. And the build to his match with Cena at XXVIII was fantastic. Makes sense, from everything I've seen since the Daniel Bryan stuff seemed really great (especially WrestleMania XXX) and Rollins is awesome. Side-note on Rollins, I can't tell you how excited I was when he brought back the Blackout/Curb Stomp. It feels silly to say, but that alone actually brought Rollins back up into my favorites when he had fallen down a bit (though like a seven/eighth month long program with The Bar didn't help, even though they were still producing good matches at least), probably my favorite finisher in all of WWE, that or the RKO.

Dude, the Rumble this year was excellent. I mean, the non-Rumble matches were just like okay in my opinion, none of them really stood out but both Royal Rumble matches were fantastic. The men's was just really well-constructed, I loved the running gag with Heath Slater, especially the punchline at the end where he eliminated Sheamus, Finn Balor's whole performance, Kofi Kingston's elimination survival spot was perhaps my favorite yet, and the final four were great. Though admittedly, I was rather disappointed with how they handled Dolph Ziggler but I've been disappointed with how they've handled Dolph Ziggler for basically his whole career. But I thought the Women's Rumble was even better. I do think they went under the bottom rope way too much, like at one point while watching my friend looked up who was still in the match because of this, but even still, the match just felt like a celebration for the division. So many woman returns (Michelle McCool in particular did so well in that match I was almost convinced she was coming back for another match), so many relationships/feuds/friendships were touched upon (Ember/Asuka, Beth/Natalya, Trish/Mickie), Asuka won (and I was really worried that they'd have Ronda debut and win), I thought the Vickie spot was actually really fun (and again, celebrating [as far as I know] the first prominent female authority figure that wasn't a McMahon) and Vickie was constantly a channel changing for me, and as horrible as it sounds, I'm kinda glad Fox got injured since I heard Kairi was her replacement and I marked out pretty hard when Kairi Sane came out.

Ha, I actually just recently bought Asuka's newest shirt myself, as well as a Curt Hawkins one (I was pretty excited when he was coming out weekly saying "who will end his losing streak" because I was like "Oh, this is going to get him over" and then they stopped doing that after like two weeks). Who else are planning on getting?

Welp trails of azure is finally done. Trails of zero is still ongoing how ever but its currently at around 70%, so very soon will be able to play them all. In addition Cold steel IV is confirmed to be the very end of the erobonia arc and kondo said that it will include a story that wraps up all loose ends from all three arcs, in addition he also said that it will have 24 playable characters, the most the series has ever gotten. Estelle will most likely be in the final cold steel game im guessing. Also one more piece of news, he teased that cold steel IV is a major turning point for the entire "trails" what ever that means but i am guessing that will finally get the identity of the grand master.

kondo also said that he is already planning and working on the start of the next arc of the trails series and said that it will be released with another 2 years or so. So around 2020 i would say.

Hi, thanks for accepting the friend request. Well, I just thought of adding you because you have gret taste in anime and I thought it would be interesting to chat or whatever.
Terrestrious Mar 1, 11:41 PM
Yeah man, Asuka's the best! She's easily my favorite at the moment anyway, though that might have as much to do with her, as it does with AJ Styles not really doing anything too interesting at the moment. I'm really glad he's WWE Champion but I just don't care about this Fastlane match at all, and as long as Asuka keeps the streak going, I'll always be at least a little invested in whatever she's doing. But yeah, even if AJ Styles was doing something I found more captivating, Asuka might still be my favorite because she does so many things well and it's really telling that she could be undefeated for well over 800 days and I'm nowhere close to wanting her to lose anytime soon. This is partially because I think she's managed to incorporate the streak into her matches in a way that makes up for the inherent drama loss that comes with it (personally, the only match I was worried/thought she was going to lose was the Ember match at Brooklyn, which is my favorite match of hers primarily because it had me on the edge of my seat ever since The Eclipse since her winning wasn't a guarantee so it had more dramatic stakes too it). For example, Survivor Series. I loved the booking of her there because not only did she eliminate three wrestlers as the sole survivor but she eliminated three wrestlers with three different moves. The Roundhouse to Carmella, the Cross Armbar to Tamina, and the Asuka Lock to Natalya, all moves she's won with previously in NXT but it was important to establish on a big stage that she has multiple plausible finishes because that helps add drama to her matches. Sure, she'll win with the Asuka Lock 90% of the time but having these other moves finish people off makes them carry more weight so the competitive matches almost more become about how much someone can survive against her. It's one of the reason the Sasha match on Raw was so excellent. Asuka did spend all the prior matches using the Cross Armbar to finish her opponents at that point, which made Sasha surviving it a much bigger deal, and the return of the Asuka Lock more satisfying (I also love that Asuka failed to lock Sasha in it before she did lock her in it to win, a nice way to remind the fans that Cross Armbar isn't her only weapon she that when she did succeed, it had more impact). Another thing she did that made that Sasha match even better was that she didn't dance. Like Asuka often dodges her opponents moves by rolling over/under them and then follows it up by dancing but in the opening minutes of the Sasha match, she did that very roll-through move but didn't follow it up with a dance, instead staying focused on Sasha, which immediately set the tone for the rest of the match. I love that Asuka relegated her bravado to moments of control with Sasha, when she had her in the armbar or when Sasha was knocked out the ring, it really helped make the match feel like a bigger deal, and it's one of my favorite matches of 2018 so far. Maybe my favorite, though admittedly, I don't tend to watch NXT so I missed that Gargano/Almas that everyone loves so it's not that big.

And you probably weren't expecting a long gush-fest about Asuka so I'll move on, she's also kinda my profile pic due to laziness. Like, I have a rule where I don't want my profile pic to be an anime character because like it's obvious I'm into anime since that's what the site's about so I like to use them as a way to expose my other passions. Which I think was a good idea because if I recall correctly we first started talking because I had Heisenberg avatar. But sometimes it's difficult to think of something outside of that realm but Asuka's been a consistent passion and when she moved to the main roster I kinda just decided that she'd by my avatar until she lost so I don't have to think about it. This is the second Asuka pic I've used, so I might change to a third if I find another one I like better, and if she stays undefeated as long as I hope she does, I might abandon this but yeah.

It's not surprising you didn't know I was into wrestling because for a long time I wasn't. I actually started watching in 2006 but around the Road to WrestleMania 29 my passion kinda just died out. There were a few reasons but the main one that sticks out, the proverbial straw that broke this camel's back, was CM Punk's historic title reign being ended by The Rock just so Cena can get his win back. I mean honestly, it was the idea that this full-time, super over act had to become heel and lose it to a part-timer just so said part-timer could put over the cornerstone of the company for the last like eight or so years at the point I think. And it hurt extra because Punk has always been a favorite ever since his debut on WWECW against Justin Credible. WrestleMania 29 also turned out to be pretty bad show, with no matches in my opinion being better than average. I think The Shield match was probably my favorite, I wasn't a fan of how Taker kinda no-sold both of Punk's finishes and I never thought the two gelled all that well. From there I kinda just watched PPVs and by 2014 I stopped watching altogether. And outside of a few Mania's I watched with a friend (not XXX, which is a shame because from what I can tell that was one of the better ones) I didn't watch wrestling at all until near the end of 2016. I always said if they did a Brand Split I'd give them another chance, watched the Smackdown draft episode but didn't really get back into the product until Survivor Series weekend. Because Mickie James was one of my favorites and she was returning for an NXT match (and though I didn't know much about Asuka, I actually did have a feeling she'd probably become my favorite if I ever watched again based on what I knew from my friend and the games [he had them]) which turned out to be a really fun match but more importantly, Lesnar vs. Goldberg which turned to be well, one hell of a memorable moment if nothing else. And since then I've been back into, I mostly just watch the youtube segments WWE posts (and usually just the segments I care about) for the weekly shows and PPV's on the Network. Because of work I usually watch PPV's a day or two later but I don't mind since that does allow me to skip the matches I'm normally not interested in (for example, I only watched The Chamber matches & Asuka/Nia at Elimination Chamber; Oh and the Ronda segment though I kinda regret that).

So besides Asuka, who else are you a fan of? And how long have you been a wrestling fan? Do you watch everything, or just kinda pick and choose?

We had originally planned on ending it after The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, but we thought that it would be rough to end it with just one title and faced a tough decision,” said Kondo.

He added, “Since it ended like that [Trails of Cold Steel III] I want to bring the next title as soon as possible, and hope to release it by next year.”

While plans were to originally end it with the third title of the Trails of Cold Steel series, Kondo reassured that the next one will be the end, “This will truly be the end. We’re working on a conclusion that wraps up all the mysteries of the Empire.”

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV will complete the series with a conclusion of the Erebonion Empire, with overwhelming volume and grand scale that goes beyond Trails of Cold Steel III.

Welp, 50% completed, and they also gave us a demo video to see there work, check it out.

Holy Christ man this game is going to be lit

The long awaited envisioned one piece game we all been waiting for and its being released next year in the west.
link9us Nov 20, 2017 3:52 PM
Yeah thats a shame. What bout the steam versions? Thats what i have.
link9us Nov 14, 2017 6:51 PM
Music? You mean like the Openings for the Evolution games? I actually prefer the original sky openings over the evolution versions. As far as gameplay music, isn't it like the same?

The PS4 will get cold steel III and IV and based on the release window for IV, it looks like japan will have it already next year as the climax episode of the cold steel arc.

Yeah the mecha theme is very central to the cold steel arc, although i would have to say it kind of started to become more of a larger focus in Trails of azure. But it has its roots clear back in trails of the sky to with things like renne's Pater-Mater and even the ring guardian, Reverie. Not quite as heavily thematic as Xenosaga though. But i think its pushing towards that direction for sure, especially with the games like Cold steel III and IV.

I am an absolute Xeno-phile and I believe Xenogears to have one of the most incredible story and characters to ever grace a video game. That being said, Trails really does remind me of Xenogears ALOT, even down to some of the musical pieces sounding like Mitsudas score from Gears. And yes the story progression is very similar, all the mysterious scenes they show at certain times to throw a wrench into the norm, and give you just a tincey bit of juicy information to keep you satisfied before the real reveals begin. Both games are incredibly crafted and paced, it really is a shame gears didn't get the other games it deserved, as much as I love Xenosaga I-III (I own all 3 games and other Saga series goodies) it falls some what short compared to the narrative of gears, and its also never really clear of Saga really is connected to gears in some way (and that goes for the blade series too, but its mostly just paying homage, and has certain aspects implemented into each Xeno game that is familiar to fans that make it a "xeno series" game).

Trails in the Sky was like a PS1 classic made almost a decade later, and takes advantage of more modern technology, but uses the old PS1 formula that made all these classic games so great. I am personally putting emphasis comparing Trails in the Sky to PS1 RPGs because its obvious thats where its inspiration came from. As far as having any of the staff from Square-soft working on the Trails in the sky series, that i do not know. But like i said its obvious kondo has some inspiration possibly from the Xeno series.

Yeah Xenosaga is actually pretty great if some of the inconsistent gameplay changes don't bother you as much, for the most part they told a pretty complete story, maybe some what convulated but it is far one of my most favorite cinematic experiences to ever grace the gaming medium.

You can have the switch plugged into the docking station, it just slides in and instantly transfers your screen to your TV, unplug it and goes straight to your switch screen, its like immediate and seamless the way it works. Its pretty amazing. I am FINALLY playing the new zelda game. Its pretty great, but full on open world. I honestly can't wait to get my xenoblade chronicles 2 though next month.

Yeah for the price point and if you do not have a PS4 i would definitely consider a PS4 over the switch due to of course the much larger library of games. That system has already been out for a while and it has quite the selection of games to play now and unlike the PS3, the PS4 is honestly catering to a much more broad range of Japanese role playing games. There is just a long list of games i can recommend to you already on the PS4. In addition the PS4 is creating a multitude of compilation games packages where you can play some PS3 games upscalled or even ps2 games. In addition of course it has access to the PSN store which enables you to play all of your oldie retro classics as well like Playstation. It also has added support for video codecs that enable you to play more formats of videos.

You played the game on hard right? Well the games are every bit structured like the trails in the sky series, so if your having difficulty making it through the 1st game, you are really going to have a tougher time with the 2nd game and the third game and so on. Levels remain intact, along with all your progression of your characters and its like continuing the adventure with even greater challenges and more hardcore fights.

For me, its Alisa all the way, since she is primarily the canon pairing, love interest of the games. The effect isn't immense though, the ending really only changes slightly based on who you pick. I have seen all the dance events and i think the best ones are Alisa and Fie personally.

Yeah 130 hrs and your just barely getting into the "actual plot" lol, based on the ending things are heating up. But thats the way falcom games are, and i love it even if the first game focuses mostly on world building, its still awesome the way they structure the games. So by the time you hit the 2nd and 3rd games, you'll understand a whole alot bout erobonia political situation and much of the surroundings, area's, characterization, etc. Then hit the next game running with some major story developments.
link9us Nov 11, 2017 11:51 PM
The eng dub of Lupin the 3rd 2nd series is absolutely phenomenal, im taking like cowboy bebop levels. I have like the first 80 or so episodes in English but i wonder if the whole series was broadcasted in english? This certainly way better then the japanese.
link9us Nov 11, 2017 8:22 PM
I remember you asked me this a while ago and i gave you quite an extensive recommendations list which of course Legend of heroes was part of that list. So i'll just say again that i think a 3ds and Vita both are great investments, there is quite a large library of games, especially if your looking for rpgs in general and tactical rpgs. As for which system is the more preferred choice? Honestly that is a real tough one cause both systems cater to a wide range of games of the rpg genre. I would say I do appreciate the features and UI of the vita obviously more because it is a bit more advanced then the 3ds. Speaking in terms of the online stores, the vita has the 3ds beat by a landslide but yes you can play many nes and snes games from the 3DS as well although the digital library isn't near as large as the PSN library.

But i think they are both fine choices for mobile systems and I wouldn't favor one over the other. Since i use both to play alot of games. Also with the additional ability to play psp games on your vita, as well as DS games on your 3ds, it widens your choices considerably if you want to play alot of older games.

No, the 2DS can not play xenoblade chronicles, only the N3DS/XL. Yeah i wouldn't get the 2DS if i were you. The Nintendo 2DS is an alternate model of the Nintendo 3DS. It is designed specifically for younger players, which is evident by the system’s tough design, tablet-like shape and non-3D display. The 2DS is comfortable to hold, it is constructed out of a lot of matte plastic which gives the system a toy-like look and feel that honestly will turn off alot of older players. There is ongoing debate on rather or not 3D is harmful to children and the 2DS was designed specifically for that demographic thats also why it has kind of a toy like look to it. The visual screens are also a bit smaller in contrast to the 3DSXL.

The new 3DS is basically the same system with upgraded features like the Video card and CPU obviously letting you play games like xenoblade chronicles or Dragon quest XI. Honestly i personally think the library of games available at this point don't justify the need to purchase one if you already own a 3DSXL. It seems to me like there only using the new 3DS as kind of a port system. Which means there are no note worthy exclusive titles for that system, just games that are avialable multi-platform like DQ XI and xenoblade. Obviously anyone that has access to a ps4 is going to want to play the DQ XI on there. I mean just look at the difference?

Also the screen size on the new 3ds is actually little smaller then the 3DSXl from what i noticed. I have said this before as well, but i don't recommend xenoblade chronicles on the new 3ds, it looks alot better on the Wii even though the Wii is dated, there is a much larger drawing distance and less blurring, as well as a darker contrast of colors and for a game that is dealing with open world visuals, it showcases its beauty much more vividly as opposed to the N3DS in my opinion.

But if your going to spend alot of money on a N3DS, i would go for the switch instead, this is the fastest selling nintendo system on the market and developers every where are creating games for the system. I think in the near future it will be a system worthy of a vast selection of titles, including alot of role playing games as well. You can probably find a good price for one on Black Friday and then you can play games like these.

and there is many more to come, its a new system now but what companies are providing is pretty groundbreaking to say the least. I usually don't say this about nintendo cause i always considered most of there systems a lost cause. There mobile market has been pretty successful but most of there consoles have failed in more ways then one. But they really blew it out of the park with this console. Its incredible and definitely a contender against the latest generation hardware of the PS4 and Xbox 1.

Have you seen Robotech or Macross/Calvary Cross/Mospeado yet? I am going to be getting into these soon and since these series were heavily inspired by Leiji Matsumoto's writing style from Yamato and Harlock, i imagine they will be pretty awesome to watch. The classics is where its at man. Back during a day where everything looked more gritty and stylish opposed to clean and uniform like it is today. I just love the 80's.
