    Game of the Year 2016: Justin's Picks

    2016 was an eventful year for gaming. Well, truthfully, the same could really be said for any recent year, but this was the year that: The Last Guardian finally shipped! As did Mighty No. 9! And I FINALLY got my Kickstarter-backer physical copy of Broken Age. And none of the above made my list. (Although, I doubt many people will be offended by the omission of Mighty No. 9. Hoo boy, that was awkward.) But as we get ready for 2017, which also looks ready and waiting to be an eventful year in gaming, let“s take a look back at my ten favorite games of 2016! 10. Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity The Touhou series of bullet hell shooters has long had a fanbase of creators that have spawned numerous fanworks over the years. The games and their characters have inspired fanart and doujinshi comics, music, and even entirely separate games. Scarlet Curiosity is one such title; an action RPG focused on the vampire Remilia and her devoted maid Sayaka, the game is simple, but well-made and incredibly fun. Filled with charming character aided by a great English localization, it was easily the biggest surprise of the year for me. 9. Style Savvy: Fashion Forward The third Style Savvy game took a while to make it to North America, but the wait was worth it. Backed by an unapologetically fantastical premise involving a tiny magical door, Fashion Forward puts, well, fashion forward as it charges the player with running a fashion boutique while also making time to help out at the hair stylist and beauty salon. With a long list of entertaining and eccentric clients in a fashion-obsessed city, dressing, styling, and grooming them all is addicting, and the light-hearted banter just adds to the charm. It was easy for me to get pulled in, playing the video game equivalent of dress-up for hours at a time. 8. Fire Emblem Fates As a long-time fan of the Fire Emblem series, putting Fates on my list wasn“t a difficult decision. But what was difficult was deciding where to actually rank it. Fates was a divisive game for a variety of reasons, whether it be the release of three separate versions (with one being restricted to DLC) that all tell the same story from different angles, and with different focuses on challenge, at that. And for every innovation that felt like a positive direction (changes to the weapon triangle, the removal of weapon durability), other parts didn“t receive the attention that they should have deserved. (The narrative justification for the second-generation characters being able to fight alongside their parents is the most nakedly lazy writing the series has ever endured.) Fire Emblem took steps forward and back with Fates, but at its core, it“s still Fire Emblem. While the game has a number of issues, it still manages to retain enough to be a challenging, entertaining entry. Hopefully an eventual Fire Emblem title on the Nintendo Switch is in the works. 7. Pokkén Tournament One of the unlikeliest of fighting games to see a release in recent memory, this Bandai Namco-developed Pokémon fighting game with its mix of Tekken and Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs.-inspired mechanics turned out to be really darn good! While the size of the roster in the Wii U version is limited, particularly compared to the arcade version that has seen continuous updates, the variety of Pokémon on the roster is well-picked. And the fighting mechanics, which emphasize a continuous shift between open arena battling and more traditional fighting on a 2D plane is fun in both single-player and online. This is the sort of wild Pokémon spin-off that I would love to see more of! 6. Nobunaga“s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension Official GP Review Koei Tecmo has gotten back into a real groove with western releases of the company“s historical strategy titles, and Ascension really nailed it for me. Since its release just this past October, I“ve played through multiple campaigns, some more successful than others, and still have a desire to go back and try to conquer Japan again. It“s the sort of difficult strategy game where I constantly feel the pull of “just one more turn.” Ascension feels like a game I could easily play for years. 5. Attack on Titan Official GP Review Koei Tecmo“s Omega Force studio have become experts at the one-against-a-thousand action combat of the Musou franchise in all its forms. To see them take many aspects of that formula and apply them to a game with an entirely different focus, and do so successfully, is remarkable. Attack on Titan“s smooth, rhythmic flow of swinging through the air and cutting down Titans is a delight as it retells the story of the anime“s first season from start to finish. Hopefully we won“t have to wait for a sequel for as long as we“ve had to wait for the anime“s second season, which is due to start airing next year. 4. Samurai Warriors 4: Empires Official GP Review The third and final Koei Tecmo game on the list, Samurai Warriors 4: Empires continues the Empires spin-off tradition of taking the core hack-and-slash Musou action and giving it the backbone of a strategy game. This year“s Empires title is an excellent refinement of that formula, offering challenges not usually seen in standard Musou titles. Playing defense with an underpowered officer and managing to hold off a much larger and more powerful invasion force is always satisfying. Of all of the Musou series, Samurai Warriors has long been my favorite, and Samurai Warriors 4: Empires helps keep it on top. 3. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X Official GP Review At first glance, Project Diva X might seem disappointing. The game has a relatively small track list, and the more cinematic music videos of past games aren“t present, as all of them are set as concert stage performances. But Project Diva X“s new story mode, which adds a thin but entertaining premise to the proceedings, is surprisingly endearing. The song selection is also top-notch, with some personal favorites of mine making the cut. And the game“s original medleys, which blend songs from past games together into themed performances like Cute, Cool, and Quirky, are some of the best and most elaborate in the game. And it“s a Hatsune Miku game. I just can“t say no to Miku! 2. Final Fantasy XV Oh, what a long and winding road it“s been this past decade. There“s a part of me that says that Final Fantasy XV has no reason to be as good as it is. Pulled out of stagnant development from its years under Tetsuya Nomura as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Hajime Tabata and his team rebuilt Nomura“s concept into a complete game worthy of being a mainline Final Fantasy title. Though it“s rough around the edges, Noctis“s road trip tale of brotherhood and a desire to find his betrothed after his kingdom has fallen under imperial rule shines through where it counts, wearing its inspirations from past Final Fantasy games on its sleeve while standing well on its own. And the game“s ending is not only rewarding, but one of the very best that the series has delivered yet, nailing the game“s themes one after another. 1. Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE Several years ago, Nintendo surprised everyone with the announcement of Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, an Atlus-developed crossover title that would match Fire Emblem“s medieval fantasy strategy role-playing series with Shin Megami Tensei“s demon-infested, apocalypse-happy, modern Tokyo-set JRPG franchise. But there was little meat to the announcement beyond a placeholder title and some old character art from past games. Many assumed that the game would be a standard crossover of franchise casts, possibly involving fights between Marth and the Demi-Fiend before everyone comes together to fight the true, common enemy. Because that“s how these crossover games tend to go. And so it was surprising, to say the least, when Nintendo unveiled Tokyo Mirage Sessions for the first time last year. Bright colors! J-Pop! A bizarre title with a sharp symbol in it! And no sign of the Demi-Fiend! I was on board with this unabashed goofiness from day one. Of course, not everyone was. Some were annoyed, or more bizarrely felt betrayed. Where was the Shin Megami Tensei? Where was the Fire Emblem? While traditional franchise crossover games are all well and good, Atlus and Nintendo chose to take Tokyo Mirage Sessions in the more novel direction of a thematic crossover. With the gameplay design and structure of a MegaTen RPG with Fire Emblem influences, and a modern-day Tokyo set against a world of Fire Emblem characters largely reimagined in the vein of MegaTen demons, well, here we are! The entertainment industry backdrop and the game“s bright, beautiful color palette give TMS an identity all its own, with plenty of nodding references and Easter eggs related to both franchises for good measure. The professionally produced musical performances as sung by the cast are some of the many highlights in a game that isn“t afraid to be goofy with characters that range from an enka-singing elementary schooler to a pitch-perfect parody of a western otaku. And yet, it never feels too silly for its own good, easing between lighter and darker moments with ease. As a fan of both franchises, I can certainly understand the disappointment some felt when Tokyo Mirage Sessions turned out to be a game that in no way matched what they had envisioned Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem would be. But the heart of both franchises shines through in ways expected and not, with a top-notch presentation and a warm heart that in my mind turned out to be the Wii U“s last and greatest hurrah.

    Review: Attack On Titan

    Developer: Omega Force Publisher: Koei Tecmo Games Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC Release Date: August 30, 2016 ESRB: M for Mature This review is based on the PS4 version of the game Omega Force, Koei Tecmo“s long-time developer of their prolific Musou, or Warriors franchise in most all its incarnations, has adapted the hack-and-slash action format to suit what has become a sizeable number of anime and manga franchises. There are Musou games based on Mobile Suit Gundam, Fist of the North Star, One Piece, and most recently, The Heroic Legend of Arslan. Omega Force“s latest effort, Attack on Titan, fits right in, but for all of the Musou blood in its veins, the core game is anything but. This shift from Omega Force“s norm is born largely from the necessities of Attack on Titan“s premise. Humanity is on the verge of extinction, hunted down and eaten by Titans; feral humanoid giants with masculine features that lack genitalia. The last remaining humans live within the bounds of three concentric walls, but a century of peace is destroyed when the Colossal Titan, a unique Titan that stands taller than these walls, attacks and breaches the outermost Wall Maria. The game“s core premise of fighting back against these Titans is where it deviates the most from the core Musou template. The relatively pint-sized humans use Omni-directional Maneuver (ODM) Gear, which allows them to shoot out cables to latch onto buildings, trees, or even Titans, and swing through the air in a manner like Spider-Man. Titans can be targeted at the arms and legs, which can be severed with enough damage, but the only way to actually kill a Titan is by striking the nape of the neck. Additionally, the protagonist Eren Jaeger acquires the ability turn into a Titan himself. At key points, Titan Eren becomes playable with controls that function much more like a traditional brawler. These moments are relatively few in the story mode, but they do add extra variety to a game that is otherwise all about the flow of weakening and downing Titans while flying through the air. Aside from the story mode, the game“s other primary mode is Expedition Mode, which can be played either solo or through online multiplayer. Playing online allows for cooperating with a group, and voice chat can be used as an option, but the experience either way does not differ that much, as the focus is the same. Complete survey missions to unlock new survey missions and the more challenging expedition missions. Just like Dynasty Warriors is entirely about cutting down enemy soldiers by the thousands, Attack on Titan is focused on taking down Titans, though by a much smaller number. Outside the core concept, missions offer a fair variety of objectives, such luring Titans into traps rather than fighting them directly or defending a character from a Titan onslaught. Encounters with unique Titans like the Colossal Titan also offer breaks from the established norm, and the game eventually introduces “Dire” Titans as special objectives that are significantly tougher than the norm. Another aspect of the game“s Musou lineage shines in its character selection and progression options. Though only a select few characters are playable in the story mode, more are unlocked as progress is made and are available for play in Expedition Mode. Each character has a series of skills that unlock as they level up, and while everyone shares the same blades and ODM Gear, their skills and individual stats separate them into diverse play styles, whether they be offense-oriented or more adept at commanding a team. There“s also a Regiment Level shared by all characters that governs what equipment and forging materials are available for purchase. And just like a standard Musou, progress along these various tracks carries between modes. The game“s presentation does an excellent job of matching the look of the source material, with the major characters recreated in high detail. Standard Titans stand out with their ghoulish, vapid expressions and their often bizarre movements, while the unique Titans exude a greater malevolence and a finer sense of detail in their design. Additionally, the cast of the anime also does a worthwhile job reprising their roles for the game However, the downside to the game“s presentation is that the story is told in a decidedly CliffsNotes fashion and leaves out a large amount of characterization and background to focus on the action. This will most likely be a problem for anyone that comes into the game that hasn“t at least watched the anime, as some key points, such as how Eren has the ability to turn into a Titan, are glossed over. The in-game encyclopedia helps, but there“s only so much information that it can impart. Attack on Titan isn“t a traditional Musou game, and it has a slightly greater learning curve with the ODM-swinging and the specifics of Titan combat. Those key differences work in its favor, however, and deliver a breezy action game with an identity all its own. It“s easy to recommend to any fan of Omega Force“s style of action games, fans of the anime, and even fans starved for the web-swinging a decent modern Spider-Man video game. Pros + Faithfully recreates the look and feel of the anime. + ODM swinging and Titan combat are a lot of fun. + An in-game encyclopedia helps give background on many of the game“s characters. + For the more squeamish, there is an optional blood toggle that reduces the level of on-screen gore. Cons - The story presentation is not friendly to newcomers, and the conclusion is abrupt. - The camera can occasionally sit in unhelpful places. Overall Score: 8 (out of 10) Great Attack On Titan is different from traditional Musuo titles, but that works towards the game's strengths, making it one of the most unique entries in the genre yet. Disclosure: This game was reviewed using downloadable PS4 code provided by the publisher
  3. Atlus is bringing the Spike Chunsoft-developed Attack On Titan: Humanity In Chains (based on the immensely popular anime of the same name) to 3DS very soon, where you'll soon be able to suit up with Omni-directional Mobility Gear to help humanity fend off an onslaught of Titans. The game will be officially releasing on May 12 in North America for $39.99, and as a bonus, anyone who purchases a copy will receive a free Attack On Titan: Humanity In Chains 3DS theme, which will not be sold separately and can only be obtained this way. Unfortunately for European fans, there is a copyright claim that is being dealt with, so not only will the name in territories there be changed to Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains, but it is also currently delayed. Atlus is still looking to confirm a release date in Europe but is hoping to do so as soon as possible. For now, you can check out a brand new character trailer for the game below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5Q_ArJMKsE Source: Press Release Are you looking forward to Attack On Titan: Humanity In Chains?
  4. Did you know there's a live-action Attack On Titan film coming out in Japan? Well now you do. The second trailer for it just released. I still need to start watching the series myself (despite being familiar with the characters and what it's about) but what do you guys think? Does it look like the live-action movie will do the story justice? And do you think we'll ever see a Hollywood-ized version of the movie?
  5. I thought I'd share this and this was pretty darn awesome crossover between Attack on Titan and Super Smash Bros. All handrawn and job well done. I think this is my favorite crossover with Attack on Titan and something else. I'd love to watch this if it were an anime! Somebody make it and hire AmazingArtistYellow!
  6. I guess they blew it all on animating the fight scenes / maneuver gear scenes because they are really cutting corners whereever possible lol They've been cutting and pasting scenes the entire time... Not to worry, the bluray release will fix it all! Just look at the comparisons between the current TV streams and the bluray release. (Left side is TV, Right sight is BD) Also the ages of some of the characters confuses me....
