    Looks like it might scratch my Star Ocean itch. I’m in.

    Finally I can PLAY a fucking Granblue game instead of tapping at it on my phone screen

    I may get it on PC when it comes to USA.

    Even with them trying to figure out how to connect the two games so you have to play both for some form of content?

    I don’t do mobile games.

    OMG, that was insane! Platinum knocking it out of the park once again. This better get fast tracked for a localization. Want to play it now!

    I do not know why that Metera is in the thumbnail (I hope it’s just fanart…), but if she’s somehow in the game while Narmaya isn’t, I’ll be incensed.

    That said, this sort of thing is what Platinum does. I’m not surprised in the least; Platinum’s reputation for good work already precedes it.

    The fact that it is referred to as a PS4 game too.

    Yeah all these salty fanboys act like it will never comes to PC, but we all know that the PS4 version is for japan only at the moment. When they announce the western version i bet we get a PC version maybe not at the same time, but just look at Nioh and all the other PS4 “Exclusives”. When it is not done by 1st Party studio from Sony they will do a PC version like every other.

    I’m not exactly a mobileshitter so I’m unfamiliar with Granblue but this looks cool. I’m in the mood for another ARPG from Platinum after NieR:A.

    What history and common knowledge? A bunch of weeb games have been getting PC ports over the last 2-3 years and Platinum has plenty of their games on PC.

    All it needs is Cagliostro and a PC port, and it’ll be perfect.

    The phone game too ages to be localized though…

    Shame PG is wasting their time on this, but more PS4 exclusives are always great.

    It was also censored if you chose the English option.

    Same with blue reflection, tokyo xanadu, all the sao games etc etc.

    All were ps4/psvita games in japan but eventually got a pc release in the west.

    The japanese have noticed that steams exists.

    History of the mobile only games?

    It’s a Loot Box Gachapon fuckfest that makes the 2017 Star Wars Battlefront 2 game look as good as the 2005 Star Wars Battlefront 2 one.

    up until this point, all i’ve seen of Granblue Fantasy was hentai (mostly because I have NEGATIVE interest in Mobile games).

    Plenty PS exclusives stay exclusive- or at least remain console exclusive, never jumping to PC as well. You have to look at who was behind them, rather than where they came out.

    pretty sure Cygames will try to censor something if there’s a western release

    December 26, 2017 at 7:02 am

    Yeah. Star Wars and Overwatch and many other loot box games are just guppies compared to Gacha games.

    At least Gacha games are free. Many Triple Ayy games are paid first, gacha later.

    Cygames takes advantage of their players with that one character is a dick move. People still support it though.

    Looks nice ! I hope they won’t skip too much on the lore and world history because of the mobile game.

    Same. I saw plenty of hentai many years before I even knew it was a game…

    Dem cowgirls

    Yes she is one of the few human characters more endowed than the cow girls. Here is a chart cause it is totally related! https://i.imgur.com/cbadhmz.jpg

    And yet, despite that, these gacha games have never outright lied to us about EXP gains like Bungie has with Destiny 2.

    Might be cool.
