So, /v/. Yokai Watch comes out in 3 hours. Are you planning on picking it up? Or will it be another monster collecting game you pass over?
We have three threads now. Which one will we keep?!
I want to, but I also want to get Moco moco friends later and I still haven't played ORAS, so I'm a bit divided on what monster raising game to get.
The only reason I'd want to get Yokai watch is for the waifu youkai, anyway.
This one, one that just says "new thread?" and one with the name "Yo-Kai Watch".
You can't even open the menu in the Demo. Even Pokemon's demo let you open the menu.
Have you paid your tribute to the Jibanyan Army yet?
If the anon who made this is lurking around, could you add on the typing chart and its strengths/weaknesses (fire, water, ice, earth, electricity, wind, absorption, restorative)
Because it has so much delicious Keita goodness.
>Tons of samey designs
>Pick the most forced one
Gabunyan a cute.
people can't into voicing kids.
Level-5 owns it, but nintendo is pushing it as hard as a first-party game
That is a bountynyan. He's not recruitable, but a yo-kai criminal that needs to be hunted down for bounty rewards. You have to chase him across the city, battle and win. He's not the only criminal though.
>sites have been casually referring to it as a pokemon killer
And those sites have no clue what they are talking about. No one beside some incredibly delusional Yokai fan and some shitposters thought Yokai Watch was a "Pokemon killer". Pokemon is a titan of a series and nobody will be able to kill it even though Gamefreak deserves it after the lackluster gen this was.
>The nigga in the video would not stop talking about how it was like Pokemon.
>Level-5 owns it, but nintendo is pushing it as hard as a first-party game
Oh okay. Guess there's a chance it might get bought or something.
I'm convinced that its the reason theres no new pokemon this year, and if Nintendo acquire it Gamefreak might actually man up and make a good game for once
Well...kinda. Its not seeing the growth that pokemon did 2 years in. Its overtaking pokemon right now, but the conditions are all fucked up. The true level playing field will be when both series go mobile.
Do you want to roll some gachapon with gashadokuro?
>dat god-awful demo
It's like someone took one of those badly localized, half-ass pokemon clones from 99-01 and said "Holy shit guys, what if we did a huge marketing push for this?" The sooner it dies and slips beneath the waves, the better off we'll all be.
>people can't into voicing kids.
Its worse with the girls. They sound like full grown fucking women.
Keita isn't too bad, Jibanyan's okay and Whisper sounds great, but the other kids and random yokai are a pain.
I watch subbed though so don't mind, doubt children will care at that.
Just hate them not making Robonyan's voice deeper.
Katie's voice in the trailer was absolutely terrible. They better not fuck up Insomni's voice
A reminder for everyone to motemote~ their favorite youkai!
Depends on the Walmart Anon. Mine can't seem to get anything on shelf on time. Pretty sure they still don't have a single copy of Wooly World, and its not like that's a high seller.
He looks like he's about to shoot himself in the face.
Being forced to stay awake at night or sleeping forever in a dream, which one /v/?
The idea is that while the game in automatic you have to keep doing other things. Like items and purifying. It's not amazing but you are also not just letting the game run itself.
Does anyone know the size of the eshop version of this?
"Man, I just shot Moten in the face!"
Whisper suggests that very powerful yo-kai are visible to the human eye, though Manjimutt's butt monkey status was probably the most powerful enough.
It kinda comes to play later during some Kyubi episodes
oodles, per rule of level-5. See >>315576454 for recommended level to tackle it
Out of all the shit they censor, I'm surprised they left the "after hours" in and didn't change it to something stupid like "let's stay up late and watch scary movies dudes XD"
I don't remember, though I think he's exclusive to White Dog Squad in Youkai Watch Busters.
But there's no macho men now. SHOW RUINED!
there's quite a crowd gathering for YKW over here at my gamestop. Not bigger than the CoD fanbase, but it's a decent bunch. No kids though.
I can make a quick note of that now
I know all the weaknesses and shit
wait around 10 min cuz I'm slow
I'll probably add the recommended yo-kai along with a couple other parts tomorrow if I have time
They left in drunk Manjimutt and perverted Manjimutt.
I honestly would have had them look for a cheesy, super-violent R-Rated movie; still verboden, but not as risque.
Just a cheap, animated frame with an Ahhnold lookalike saying "Time to punch you up," would have sold me.
I'm seeing soccer-moms on facebook getting riled at the kids looking up porno already.
Manjimutt's drunkness was played off with driven into despair and losing his mind.
Damn, gotta choose between that and Super Mystery Dungeon.
there's already a meta existing for YKW2 battles. It's pretty much guaranteed if it gets here.
Get ready for the Bushinyanvasion
>I'm seeing soccer-moms on facebook getting riled at the kids looking up porno already
Seriously? That sounds hilarious. Take some screenshots.
I think there'd be a lot of that going on.
not the same, but similar.
They're actually doing a special thing too. with the online episodes. According to the yo-kai world websote, starting on the 6th, all new uploaded episodes will have codes for the games. I'm not sure what they'll be giving away, but I bet that's why the episodes will go poof. The first episode's going to stay, but that's it. There's no code in that one. Nice incentive, though it is inconvenient for those who want to get into the show.
Don't know if I'm just old or what but I went straight to that when I saw him trying out new jobs.
Any other things they kept that is causing people to lose their fucking head?
Interesting creatures, comfy setting, slice-of-life, anime is fun.
If you want a good time, go for it.
That hilarious segment where Komasan starts driving a taxi and Yokai read letters from upset moms.
By friend showed me a couple of episodes of that and Gumball and shocked at what they leave in. Guess they feel since tv watching has been going down might as well push the limit to see if it helps.
It's been decades and parents still don't understand that complaining and vilifying cartoons/video games will only convince kids to watch/play them even more. Kids are attracted to the stuff their parents don't want them to see.
Still, I doubt Yokai Watch will get popular with western kids. It just doesn't seem like a thing that would catch on.
I've been a Pokemon fan as long as Pokemon has been around. It's a good series, but the games have gotten stale as hell and I really want to see how YW stacks up since it overtook Pokemon over in Japan. I'm not expecting it to do the same in the US, but I'm hoping it might ignite that original sense of wonder I had as a kid playing Pokemon Blue for the first time all those years ago
He's going to be jacking it in San Diego and there's nothing you can do about it.
>getting revenge on trucks
What is this? Toku Spider-Man?
I want KarakuriBenkei to
find my screw
Most likely they had the lines read and was going to air it when Disney came in and suddenly said "Nope" Which tells us really one thing. That the localizers really want it as close to the Japanese and really it's Disney that is doing any of the changes.
A reminder to keep your yo-kai away from G-energy sources. Otherwise, they get ripped and go on a rampage.
According to Whisper, certain Yokai can be seen if they're really powerful, so Mangimutt may be stronger than he appears.
They see him as a dogman, as explained in his debut episode.
>It's been decades and parents still don't understand that complaining and vilifying cartoons/video games will only convince kids to watch/play them even more. Kids are attracted to the stuff their parents don't want them to see.
You're saying this on a board full of kids that complain about everything and are currently on a Fallout 4 hate train expecting it to convince people not to play it. Some people are just dumb and will never change anon.
Yo-kai Watch 2 Busters minigame. Influenced by Fist of the North Star. Reddo J/Red J plays a slightly more prominent role in the Spinoff game.
ever see Manjimutt's G-form, Prison Breaker? >>315579426
Im still just...waiting around for 3...
which GERA would you PO?
pic related, is both cutie felines
Damona. I might have a thing for dark magician girls
I'll take Keita and his hot grandpa. At the same time.
There's a decent amount in 1. 2 has even more. Either way it's possible to have a full cute girl team.
We meet Keita's grandpa in the movie and the second game. He's a sexy, tan, masculine, barefoot shota in a tank top who beats up evil spirits and invented the first Youkai Watch.
Why are we just now getting Level 5 games? They all obviously look like shit graphics wise because they were the very first 3DS games.
Shit, I didn't know LBX has 2 other damn games already. Fucking Level 5.
Noriko Hanako, evolution of hanakosan. Specializes in making ghost stories real and planting curses.
See those kana above the kanji? That is super helpful for learning Japanese since kanji can have multiple ways of being pronounced with each one having a completely different definition. So it's a good way of building your vocab. Personally I tried learning it but fuck me the grammar is annoying.
my sister did that
she has this phobia of web cams after seeing some PSA vid of a hacker stalking some chick
I don't know it's retarded but she's like 'muh protection muh privacy' even though she has a facebook and all that shit.
also she made that jacket of koma-san when I posted my merch.
This whole fucking scene...
isn't the update next month?
or my jap is a bit rusty
they didn't want to promote beasting anon
those fucking final level bosses are fucking me up big time
>kills you in 2 hits or so
fucking bullshit but I think I can do it since most attacks are easy to dodge
>more like MMBN than Pokemon
I'd try the demo but everything I've heard from /v/ is that it's a terrible sample of the game, but if it's like MMBN I'd really like to know more.
a million times yes. Do look over the thread to see some posted.
Not very. There's a collection aspect, but battles are real-time.
It's so far been receiving average/good scores form reviews.
>This blatant samefagging
And it has done well in Japan. For the past few years, actually, if the show, toys, manga, and sequels are any indication. Quit shitposting, anon.
For you midnight owls there, how are you passing time for the release?
Watching the anime
Its not even heavy on the shota.
When I think "shota central" I think Hero Bank
Seems like 2 episodes can't go by without some boy getting getting naked.
Its painfully obvious its run by shotacon fans.
Staring at my computer's clock and looking at the /v/ catalog. Shame there's not any good threads going on. I just bought Mushihimesama on Steam, but I don't want to commit to rotating my monitor right now
I'm leaving in about 15 minuets, actually. It takes about 30 minuets to drive there, and I'm sure they'll let me pick up my copy ahead of the people buying CoD. Even if they don't, I'll just hang out and play some demos on the PS4 they have set up.
Honestly, I'd love for this series to succeed in the West if only so Game Freak gets off their fucking ass and improves rather than coasting on "we're Pokemon lol".
Competition is healthy.
Yikes that thing is creepy. Right when mangimutt was growing on me.
That's a pretty shit way to market the game, then.
Can you provide context as to what's misrepresented?
I'm a bit tied between getting it physically and digitally
On one hand I get it at midnight, on the other, I get a physical game + a pin(possibly, I don't know the situation behind the pins).
What do anons.
That's exactly what I've been thinking too. I don't want YW to kill Pokemon - like it even has a chance to over here - but I want Game Freak to know that people are bored of the same formula they've been milking since the 90s and people are open to new things
So glad to see more people learning about Hero Bank, even though it's barely a year old it feels like we're barely getting any of it. I hope there's more to come from them.
Not just for all the shota nudity, it was legitimately pretty funny and enjoyable.
it would be 11/10 GOTY
even if it's restricted to only the mascots, I would still like to play with them
I don't even mean dramatic formula changes, just actually putting in some effort.
I was fucking furious when I found out ORAS had the exact same framerate and no-3D issues that XY had when fucking Smash Bros. could do it all no problem, then shit got worse once it was revealed that they got rid of the Battle Frontier because "eh, no one cares".
Then again, the fact that there's been no information as of yet about Pokemon Z is a pretty good indication that maybe they've taken notice of YKW's popularity in Japan and are actually putting some work in.
I'm a huge pokefag and even I thought the current gen games were really shitty. If this stops the next gen from having the very 'phoned in' feel of the current gen, I'm all for it.
Unfortunately I don't expect this to take off nearly as well in the west as pokemon managed.
Id like it.
At least in 2 you can have any Yokai follow you around.
There's a squid boss, so expect squid kid puns galore.
Spoilers for those that don't want to see it
I started liking him after seeing the credits where he redeemed himself into a good guy (sort of) I hope we'll see more of him
it's ok, I'd say a 7/10
the basic mechanics is to earn these points which you can use to either buy equipment etc. or level yourself up. Some folks were complaining about not being able to level up the traditional way but I thought it was fine as it is.
It's a big improvement when the first time busters was introduced.
Pick it up if you have the money
>Was tempted to get this cause of waifu yokai
>Remembered I sold my 3DS
Well it's not an autobattle like the main game and is more action-based. I think it looks pretty neat, though combat is once again centered on tough boss fights. So you could end up soaking in more hours to perfect your favorite youkai/team.
Yeah, that's the good stuff. I think you will like this series if you havent already seen it. Band-aid shota gets naked all the fucking time. Even in the video game intro you get treated to a nice butt scene.
I don't have enough free time to grind some monster collectathon RPG thing
>looking at Dark Orochi erases you from existence
>still befriendable and you still exist even when he slacks off in your direction
I swear if this yo-kai pedia follows the same route as the Pokedex I am going to break it in half
I want Jorogumo to
rape me Monster girl style
YW2 is the closest you'll get to most monster boys
>not just running next to it or avoiding the street light
snartle can suck my dick
I know, I meant seeing more cutscenes or back story of him
well, ready to refight the creator's selfinsert again, except another color?
a-at least we have our imaginations
You run out of stamina hella fast without using items
If Yo-Kai catches on enough outside Japan, it would seem reasonable to introduce some Splatoon equipment
Would Jibanyan be a viable Smash character? I can't imagine him having too many moves, although to be fair I'm not too familiar with YW as a whole
Anyone know if the Kamen Rider Youkai is in the 1st or 2nd game?
I feel like Jibanyan would fit in much better, plus it alt costumes could be the different types of banyans ingame.
>you'll never be jorogumo's sex slave
>you will never be teased while restricted to ejaculate for hours
>you will never feel and hear his sweet voice against your ears
>you will never then have your dick unbounded and ejaculate inside him
Duck Hunt got in and he is my main, I dont think they knew how he would fight. Atleast Jibanyan has some potential.
Fuck. This better do good in the US, so we can get a 2nd one.
fucking faggot I see him everywhere every time I search a yo-kai watch video in nipponese
Even his name is a shitty pun
I wonder if his final smash would be paws of fury or transforming into Red J form...
>tfw 136 in bank
>still job hunting
>on the fence like crazy
Is this game worth $40? I want to get it but at the same time I feel like in my position I'd be wasting potential food.
I hear the demo doesn't even really show the game off well enough.
kid's available in first game, but can only evolve into the masked fellow in second game
for your case anon, maybe you should hold off on the game, at least until your money problems are fixed. No game is worth sacrificing a meal.
Yo-kai watch isn't for everyone and not a perfect game
some hate it for its flaws and can't stand them,
some like it and is able to over look the flaws and enjoy it
I'd say check the demo first for gameplay, but if you're a huge storyfag then go buy it, I'll say that the ending is well executed. Try to wait until it gets a bit cheap though if you can.
He's only in one or two episodes anyway, starts off looking strong but turns into a total
>tfw can't get the name until probably 2pm tomorrow due to a metric fuckton of things keeping me busy
>try out the first episode (english dub)
They can't be serious.
Never gonna get traction in the west.
For now even though I like a good story, I'll worry about finding a job first before I run out of cash.
The demo can't be that bad, right?
college is suffering
yeah you should put your money aside and wait until it gets more affordable for you
hope you do your best
>college I know dat feel
You can scan the QR code in to get goodies and maybe even befriend a yo-kai. I think a few also unlock befriending quests.
that actually sounds neat anon. I'd look forward to it.
I played the Japanese version and it's really not all that good. I guess I recommend it to people like me who like games like this (digimon, medabots etc), but it's all a bit too simple and too easy. There's a grand total of like 10 likeable monster designs too.
The game suffers from the same problem as medabots and many of the digimon games, which is that it doesn't give you direct control over the battles. Pokemon remains the King of the genre, because despite being just a easy as all the other series, Pokemon at least has a fairly deep and satisfying combat system lying underneath the piss easy base game.
they give you coins which you can use to gamble on the gatcha machine.
The gatcha machine gives you items or yo-kai based on the color of the medal. (Charming is pink, Mysterious is yellow etc.)
the one you're going for is the S-rank rare yo-kai.
it's a good advantage to scan qr codes or somehow get the colored coins, also it's good to note you can only use the gatcha 3 times once a day until it turns to 6 am (in real time)
I'm assuming you're talking about competitive Pokemon? Sure there's all that eugenics shit you can do, but as far as the main game is concerned, all you have to do is use a super effective move and have all your Pokemon at a decent level and you can easily take down anything in 1-2 moves. Rock Paper Scissors can get boring too, y'know
I still cant beat this fucker.
She takes out even my level 99 Yokai in 2-3 hits.
Yeah that's why I said in my post that the base game is piss easy. That's a consistent problem across all of these game because they're aimed at kids. I'd kill for a Pokemon game that really made you utilise the Pokemon battle system to its fullest, but we're unlikely to ever get it.
Still, having a deep battle system but relegating it to multiplayer is better than not having one.
Well, I played it. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, given how much complaining there is about the demo.
The battling took some getting used to, not having to control the youkai and all and figure out who did the healing and stuff. I ended up using the kappa guy a lot for the mega water attack.
I was really disappointed there were no cute girl youkai in the party.
Overall, I'd say my favorite part of the demo was
finding out you can catch bugs.
I'll probably pick it up.
you'd think they let you use a girl yo-kai that easily anon? You gotta earn their attention first.
You can also fish in both the games, more realistically in the second game too
Yep gonna get comfy in my bed while I play this.
>tfw no cute bf to cuddle and play yo-kai watch
I'm so close to buying this game /v/ due to butthurt about no new pokemon game this year. But fallout 4 comes out in 5 days what should I do.
preorderedFallout 4, it's not a money issue. It's that I'm not gonna finish it by the time Fallout 4 comes out and then I'm gonna forget about it. Oh well, I guess I'll just buy this later, wait for a /v/erdict.
Not interested at all. If 9.9 gets piracy
I still hate myself for updatingI might try it that way, but the demo didn't interest me and I'm not spending money on it, especially when the new PMD comes out in a couple weeks.
It'd take a miracle but since I have no reason to update I can still hold onto a tiny bit of hope.
>Anything can be better than DQM
Am I the only one that got annoyed none of the reviewers ever mentioned DQM just kept talking about Pokemon killer?
Fuck SE for keeping DQ away from us.
I wonder how long it'll take for the next games to get translated and released?
Having a team of girly yokai is fun, but it'd be even better if I can beat up random people online with them.
You've already encounter a mote?
Watched the first episode.
>Pacing was god-awful and the dub is mediocre at best.
>not even trying to hide the fact that the show is an over-glorified commercial
>show is deeply entrenched in japanese culture; a bunch of stuff lost in translation or will go over any western kid's head
>death + having a loved one call you a dumbass for dying over your corpse
>in the first episode
I can already sense the soccer moms inadvertantly advertising the game like they did with pokemon in the late 90's/early 00's.
Had to wait for blops people to clear out.
Got to watch an accident while I waited.
Some drunk asshole in a pickup plowed into one of the first blops people out the door (In their car, (that's good), a 2008 Camaro (That's bad)
The shock made the drive home in pea-soup fog extra fun.
I'm getting the game tomorrow because I have some stuff to do
been a busy week
Maybe. There's a bit of a learning curve switching from turn-based to real-time (along with the indirect control of yo-kai), but anyone interested in comedic yet interesting stories and world building would like it.
There's also the whole 'too japanese creatures' thing that also splits the audience, though I don't think anyone really cares whether its Japanese or Swedish.
>go to the midnight release for BO3 to pick up Yokai Watch
>store is pretty quiet, except for the TV

Similar situation! They said they didn't have the pin though.
And to make it worse, when I was leaving, the welcoming guy said I was only the second one who got that game tonight ;_;
Say, anyone know how to rip gifs from pixiv? Keep only getting one image at at time...
Mine was loud as fuck, and they did things like free pizza, a giveaway raffle for a gift card, and
a nerf gun firing range with plastic cups with prizes.
Fun was had. I think me and the cashier were the only ones to get YKW though.
I'm in ridiculously late and know little. I'm aware this supposedly sold more than pokemon in japan?
If I'm going to accept its better there needs to be a few things. What does it have that pokemon doesn't?
Is there better char creation?
Is the music badass?
Are the fights more than mash A to win and VS element, do you need to use status effects to win like in Persona series?
Is there a home/base you can upgrade?
Can you breed them and make weird stuff from breeding?
Mine was dead silent, except for a couple drunk college kids in the parking lot. It was awkward as fuck. No games, no raffles, nothing. The Gamestop employees obviously didn't care.
if you mean good designs I'll tell you that there are some out of 100s that have good designs, but the good designed ones are well done
but final boss music is the best (though I recommend you listen to it because it really builds up on you unless you haven't experienced the story- atleast the final chapter)
auto for the most part, but bosses make you think a little and use strategies
it maybe easy for the first few chapters, but the bosses do get harder
>home base upgrade
can't do that
can't do that either
>What does it have that pokemon doesn't?
3 save files, a DAD, and different homes/families depending on who you pick to start the game, Keita/Nate or Fumi/Katie. There might be more, but that's what sticking out to me.
>Is there better char creation
Not really. You get to change their name, but that's it.
>Is the music badass?
It's comfy and feels like it could lull you into a sleep or fit into a haloween theme.
>Are the fights more than mash A to win and VS element, do you need to use status effects to win like in Persona series?
Yo-kai fight automatically while you play support, targeting yo-kai, commanding soultimates, purifying inspirited foes, or using items to heal/revive/give a direct command. Random encounters/non quest-related fights are easy enough and can handle themselves, but difficulty spikes are around.
>Is there a home/base you can upgrade?
Eyepos appear every now and then to heal yo-kai and swap team if needed.
>Can you breed them and make weird stuff from breeding?
No breeding, but there is fusion to make new yo-kai, whether with another yo-kai or with an object.
