In honour of Tokyo Game Show we’re going to focus this week’s weekly discussion on games that come from the spiritual homeland of games, Japan.
The weekly discussion: Japanese games!
Much has been said about how the Japanese games industry is struggling (yeah, right), but one thing is certain, there are still a lot of fans of Japanese games out there.
So what are some of your favourite Japanese games and game developers? What did you think of Tokyo Game Show this year? Let us know, and have a great weekend of gaming!
With The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, we got a truly exceptional sequel (and…
One of the many things that we’re looking forward to seeing in Final Fantasy XVI is…
Last August, Soedesco acquired Spanish development studio Superlumen, which was working on point-and-click adventure game Desolatium.…
The original Corsairs launched over 20 years ago, and had the player taking on the role…
There’s one absolutely massive game releasing this month that we’re all very excited for, but it…
It was a good TGS for me – a new Hyperdimension Neptunia game will do that.
As everyone knows, I love Japanese games – especially JRPGs. GUST (the folks behind the Atelier games) is my favourite developer at the moment, which is appropriate that Tecmo Koei (the Warriors games) acquired it, as TK is my favourite publisher.
At the moment I'm playing Tales of XXXXX (whatever it is) f, which is a reasonable game. The series doesn't resonate with me quite as well as its fans though.
Favorite Japanese games…. Mario. Monster Hunter Tri. These count right?
Japanese games are awesome! Especially the DS games that didn't get released elsewhere. I mean, they show lots of, um… and they let you finger… er… 🙂
Retro Game Challenge 2 (DS) is absolutely awesome and one that I really wish would've released outside of Japan.
I'm not too big into current Eastern flavored games, but the classics still hold up for me big time. When I look back on it, pretty much everything I played when I was a kid was from a Japanese developer/publisher.
And if Nintendo keeps making Mario titles, I'll keep buying them.
Yeah, I actually got my hands on Retro Game Challenge 2, I loved the first one so. Unfortunately, a complete lack of understanding Japanese has proved to be kind of a barrier. 😛
Anything from Nintendo is great, anything from Sakurai is ten times better.
As far as non-Nintendo stuff, Cave Story and Metal Gear Solid are my things.
