TalkBack / TGS 2016: Puyo Puyo Chronicle (3DS) Hands-on Preview
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:52:00 AM »

Time to grind those Puyos!

Sega brought a limited playable demo of Puyo Puyo Chronicle to Tokyo Game Show, a mash-up of an RPG and a traditional Puyo puzzle game. The story follows a girl called Arle and her sidekick rabbit-thing, Carbuncle as they explore a new world they were sucked into. The story and tutorial cut-scenes were long, but skippable, but there's nothing that really need explaining here if you're familiar with Puyo Puyo. Basically you walk around the world and towns like a regular RPG, in a way not too dissimilar to a Dragon Quest game, both in style and colour palette.

When you bump into an enemy you are taken to a separate screen where you play Puyo Puyo, then every chain you make throws attacks at the enemies. If you are good at Puyo Puyo then you will be able to make long chains and destroy enemies in seconds. If you are bad at these kind of games and unable to make chains like me, you may find yourself dying. The status screen hinted at more support characters being available in the final game, and the website mentions up to four players locally as well as online play. If any of this sounds tempting, you will be able to pick the game up on December 8, assuming you have a Japanese 3DS.

Sairus Delaney? Never heard of him. Good write-up though!

Now I understand when E3-goers say they know less about what's going on than the people at home!

Like Danny said on the show, let us know what you're excited about for TGS, that way we know what to play and what to ignore!

TalkBack / Re: My Nintendo Gold Coin Expiration Extended

Time for a game of "what's wrong with this picture"

Lolz, exactly!

I think discounts/skins/pointless crap should be restricted to Platinum coins, free/full games should be exchanged for gold coins.
Then the dream of "buy games, get more games" comes true.

Yes it's true in the latest update they do have a few things in that category, but no where near enough. Also I'm cautiously optimistic things will get better. Maybe.
At a guess though, NoA will screw things up, NoE will be slightly better, and NCL will have the best stuff :

My point was this new system was supposed to reward players for buying and playing games frequently, but they replaced all the rewards with discounts or digital t-shirts, not full games, VC or eShop games.

One cool thing though is that you got the coins for the original price, not the discounted price :)

Yes this is a weird choice for 3DS
No I won't be buying it
But you gotta remember; 8 trillions 3DSs are out there compared to the 2 dozen WiiUs.
It's not for us, it's for the kiiiiiiiiids

1. They should never expire.
2. We should be able to buy a VC game of our choice with 20-30 gold coins
3. Seriously how is this better than Club Nintendo, it's not enticing anyone to do anything
4. Hardly a good step forward going towards NX

I'd only played 1 of the 5 games, but still managed to get 3 points somehow! (games 1, 3, 5)
My guess for game 4 would've been "an SNES RPG that didn't come out in Europe" which is my go-to guess for most Trivia questions to be honest.

Hi everyone!
Looking for that link to the quiz I talked about on the show?
I got ya back: boom
Load it up and play it in sync with us as you listen on the podcast, then tell us how you did on Twitter.
Surely you did better than Sairus?

Any topic ideas for future quizzes, let us know and we guarantee * we will make it happen!

*not a guarantee

Did you enjoy the quiz? Would you guys be interested in doing it again with the remaining consoles, or did Danny/Ty/Sairus's complete failure put you off?

Read about the meaning of "Myycar" right here
Turns out I was spot on with the meaning. As if there was ever any doubt.
In related news, how the hell are they going to localise YW3 into English?
American boy goes to the strange land of...America, and meets weird, errr, American people and things?
Or maybe they'll just change it to France or something.

Crikey blimey Charlie, 90% of the revenue from overseas!
Now I know why Ironman 3 had a secret Chinese scene that only played there.
I mean, that failed spectacularly in China, but it's worth a shot for them kinda bucks!

I don't blame Danny for not liking Vegemite!
Vegemite is when you burn Marmite in a pan, remove all the flavour then scrape off the remnants and put it in a jar. It was only invented because during the war there was a shortage of real Marmite, but then for some reason the Aussies/Kiwis stuck with it.

But also, videogames!
How you all voting in the Splatfest then? I chose the one that Sairus didn't, just because reasons.

Wow, thems some smart thinking!
In that case I'd go for Dr Dre.

Pfff Sairus said 1/2 Genie Hero was "defintely totally all 2D", but look at it, 3D backgrounds and objects, I was right!

Oh and TYP's interview was with Grant Kirkhope, not David Wise (oops)
