Falcom's Ys VIII is heading to the Switch this year thanks to NIS pushing for it from rumours. I've never played a Ys game but I know of the series and I was even tempted to pick up VIII but wasn't sure if I should go PS4 becasue I mainly play on a TV or on VITA as I do like a JRPG on a handheld and I never bothered in the end.

The Switch version is perfect for me and should have the new translation


Athrun can likely fill us in more about the game and series but I could see this at the right time being a bit of a hit on here with me, Balla, Zero and Jay.

If I finish Xenbobob before this comes out, I might be tempted but big JRPGs do burn me out a little.

I'm in Drunka's boat, only less likely to get burned out. Gives me very strong Xenoblade vibes, this, down to the stupidly dressed female character (the thread title is a dirty lie). So I'll probably pick it up, despite complaining bitterly about the dress sense.

Can't be as bad as Dahlia in XC2 though. No

It's an alright game. Combat is super basic but ultimately fine and watching your base grow is reasonably fun. Story is very long and grindy though, a game to pick up on the cheap/during a dry spell.

One of these days I'll start a blog where I draw all of video gaming's scantily clad women in suits of armour. I'll just need to learn how to draw first...

Although building'n'action RPG scrapping reminds me of Ever Oasis - which I quite liked - I'm on the fence with this. My backlog already holds a fair few RPG's I liked the look of but never really clicked with (time for the Xenoblade Chronicles cough!). Aww!

The title is an absolute banger and I can't believe I didn't notice right away. Nice one, Mas!

Thanks Drunka

I think Andy is right, it is all about when this comes out but if it's July or something, then could see a few of us getting it.

Can we talk about the word fanservice?

I'm fairly sure it just means something that's put into a game/ comic/ film/ whatever purely for the fans. Sometimes it's used in the context of taking a character who fans already lust after and giving them nude or scantily-clad scenes. I don't think it can just be used as a blanket term for all titillation.

We already have words for that, like "crass" and "pandering".

Sure, I can just imagine Balla rolling his eyes and saying something the lines of this game being fanservice heavy. I don't think it will actually be part from the Swimsuits DLC as it's no Senran Kagura.

Forget the swimsuits, have you seen her regular clothing? Unless there's a really well explained reason in-game why this mystical maiden of magic wears two straps across her chest rather than proper clothing, I'm going to go with fanservice - or crass pandering, which does indeed work better.

I'd say you're absolutely right for the mediums you mentioned, but when it comes to anime and manga - and I suppose by extension games with an anime aesthetic - then "fanservice" does indeed refer to scantily clad costumes and whatnot.
