what are some thoughts on Cyber Sleuth? I've been looking into buying it but I haven't played a Digimon game before.

>>507522914Enormous time sink if you want to try getting all the Digimon in the game and decent teams. It was my first Digimon game too, but there's a lot of resources out there to learn about how all the evolution system works and all the different digimon.I sort of got bored with it at the very end because the fighting system is somewhat shallow, but there's a lot of team customization you can do.

>>507522914I'm a digimon fanboy and I fucking hate it. The only good thing I can say about it is that it doesn't look bad. Play Dragon Quest Monsters if you want a pokemon replacement.

2 of these 4 games are better than the other two, which ones are they? Also, just a reminder just because A is better than B, it doesn't mean B is bad it can still be good.

>>507532431Basically, when you assemble a team for battle a password gets generated, and then someone else can use that password to fight a copy of your team.

>>507526746Nobody really knows. In late 2018 they said at a panel that they were doing so, but it has been radio silence on the subject since then. Many suspect the combination of corona and the series being all but dead in the West has finally done its chances in. Also the fact that the plot ties heavily into the newer movies and the Shadowside anime (which ages up the characters and adds alternate versions of the Yokai) neither of which have been localised and realistically are unlikely ever to be.If we DO get YW4, it will be the last Yokai Watch thing we get in the West.

>>507529904I’m looking at it right now. I like the pixel art. It reminds of the Pokémon TCG graphics and also Zelda Oracle. Cutscenes are a meh.

I have a theory on why the Fighting Foodon games weren't released in the WestIts because you can localize something like Korokke into being Tater Tots but you can't change the actual game's contents that reveal the contrary

>>507538292From my point of view:>Loved the show as a kid>But even back then, I knew the airing order was fucking odd, why?>The mechs were cool, the toys were also pretty nice>Pogs of these characters were the shit when I was in 6th grade>Season 1 ended, but people still watched reruns>Season 2 came out, and most of my friends were in "that age" were they pretty much "wrapped up" their childhoods>Many characters were not in Season 2>It had this odd gimmick were they transformed into bikes or some shit, it look a bit ridiculous>I also lost interest, all I wanted is a cool shonen with cutom mini mechs, slice of life and tournament arcs.>Only three games were localized AFAIK, the GC one and two for GBA.I watched it again, still holds up but I would really love if there was a version with the LatAm Dub with the JP music, and I was surprised Nelvana left a lot of Japanese culture references untouched, unlike 4 Kids.If they release a new game here in NA, I would buy it without a second doubt as long as it´s not gachashit for phones.

>>507540410Whatever killed Foodons did us a favor. I just do not like the premise, no matter how funny the anime’s opening narration is. It’s like if Ronald McDonald made Pokemon.

>>507538292It's probably just me but as a kid I never saw any of the toys in any stores- I didn't live in the middle of nowhere either I lived in a bustling metropolitan area.

>medabee loves watermelons>hire a black guy to voice him in englishwhat did they mean by this?

>>507540946I lived in the middle of nowhere and had tons of Medabots toys.

>>507540861I knew about this but I am glad it flopped, or else we would have been trapped in an era where the waifus would have been 1st and Medabots second, look at this fucking image, there´s only Metabee and Rokusho FFS. I may be a coomer but some things are better when they do it with moderation or in a more subtle way like in pokémon, sure it has waifus and shit but the pokémon are still the main selling point, as much as I hated SwSh.

>>507536597I beat the main game and was working towards dex completion, but it started becoming a pain near the end to do completion stuff, so I stopped. I enjoyed it though. Supposedly, it's getting a sequel.

So if I wanted to get the full package of World of FF what would I need to buy?

>>507560679I'm not sure if it applies to BanchoLeomon but some bosses have high as fuck defensive stats, meaning you either need penetrating moves or tons of buffing attack/debuffing defense to really make a dent. If you don't have penetration/buffs and Acceleration Boost some bosses can be obnoxiously tanky.

>>507521074How skippable is the second game? And how hard would it be to go back to the second after playing the third? I know in the Rune Factory series, after playing the third game, the first two are a bit painful to go back to.I've been playing the first yo-kai watch, and aside from all the wild goose chase side quests, and the bug / fish catching, and the chasing yo-kai around on the screen with the little lens to reveal them... yeah, aside from those, I've quite enjoyed it. It has a cute comfy story that I am adoring.But I hear that the third game is where the game really starts to shine. And business is starting to get back to normal, so my 3ds gaming time is going to start shrinking soon.

>>507546816Maybe if you could tell us the title of the game?

>>507546816As a true crime/conspiracy theory casual follower, this sounds really cool. Details, please.

>>507519167Which spectrobes was the best? I vaguely remember playing Origins, and the first game. Never played the second, but I want to. Games are super cheap to buy used and the last time I checked, you could buy Origins Pre-Owned for like 5 dollars.

>>507566319YW1 is completely skippable, YW2 even treads the same ground storywise

>>507566473I don't know what it's called, that's why I referred to it as the one with "real" aliens.

>>507567053It was on the GBA specifically and I only know it exists because it was briefly mentioned in a youtube video. That's all I know.

Man I wish there was a third Fossil Fighters game

>>507526415How's Yokai Watch? Never had a 3DS so I couldn't play it, and my pc can't run citra to emulate it

>>507558016Nice. Hope it fixes some of the grinding issues.

>>507569108The first game is the worst one, the second one is an improvement that reuses all its content, Blasters is great, and the third is the best.

I watched Tri. What was the point? The moral was about letting go, but there is no payoff, you just avoid death ? It's a new angle but it was really weak especially since the series has done nuanced emotion plots really well before. And the retconning didn't even contribute to the story.

>>507567282I disagree, 1 has a certain charm to it and a simplicity to its premise and world that subsequent games kind of undermined by upping the stakes.I always recommend starting with 1.

>>507569108I could just paste the usual Yokai Watch infodump I always use when people ask about the games.

>>507522914I just bought it about a week ago. I was pretty on the fence beforehand but I am happy with the purchase so far. Main cons are that the story is very boring for a majority of it (it just started heating up and I'm pretty sure I'm two thirds of the way). Characters are fairly generic. The battling is fun but a bit simple. But on the plus side I enjoy the number of Digimon, the game is not as tedious as I feared it might be, and the story is now actually heating up.

I didn't get an answer last time so I'm asking this again. Is this a mon game? you collect things and make them fight for you but I wouldn't say that's the main focus.

>>507519167one of the few games im looking forward is the new Dragon Quest Monsters game assuming it actually leaves Japan. The battle and breeding system actually lets you form whatever kinda party you want, if the games had better world building (less generic plots/music and more to do in the worlds themselves, less generic npcs and quests etc) then they'd be perfect monster taming games.

>>507603818I think the first three are generally the most 'basic' of the games. As in they stick pretty closely to the formula set by the first game.4 changes things up pretty drastically with it's dungeons and raising multiple monsters at once, and EVO continued that while adding the circus stuff.I think most would agree that MR2 is the definitive experience? I don't really see any arguments really being made for 3.

Are there mon games that depict their monsters in an active ecosystem?

>>507606469The closest I can think of is Monster Hunter Stories.Sometimes you see fights between monsters depicted as fightclouds in the field. Mostly predators killing prey.

These threads are surprisingly active.

pastebin.com/3WxQUHSWThis should probably be posted in every /mon/day thread. Though maybe we should make a new version with more games and a less troll inviting name.

>>507608713You pick a monster at the start, represented by a Gem. The gem determines your attack in a battle. When you fight other monsters, if you beat them, you get their gem and can use it in battle. Each monster has an alignment based on the suit symbols.Spades > HeartsHearts > ClubsClubs > DiamondsDiamonds > SpadesThe opposite of the above does less damage if I remember right. Later monsters give gems with stronger attacks. The game bills sixty monsters but there's only forty-six with a few dupes. You make a deck from your gems during a fight and go from there depending on the monster you meet. You can give the monster food or an item and they may give you money. Your monster will put on weight every time it eats and it determines how fast it acts in battle. You can have it work off its weight and do more actions in battle. It's a fun little game for what it was and has some cute designs. There was also a Gameboy game a few years back that I think was JP-only.

>>507614413It's cause the switch has a tv mode, you can't clean fossils properly with a joystick.

I hear the other Spectrobes games weren't as good, what was the problem with them?

>>507616737Assuming you mean the ones that came after the first. The reasons I like don't like them is that for the second one battles use a worse system and the high krawl were a stupid decision. and origins is horrible in every way except excavating.
