    • Not in recent time. It got better just after the release of Monster Hunter, but eventually it will be back under PlayStation 4 when that game will not sell anymore.

  1. Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions…. What is with these really long names with some video games lately? Not a big deal, but it just seems weird to me when I see long titles like that, or really funky titles too.

  2. Meanwhile, Dead or Alive veterans are still whining about Honoka and Marie Rose for being “overrated” because they are in Musou Stars.

    Those two are the new faces of the franchise, they just have to understand that.

      I love Honoka (in spite of not knowing much of the character) so I’m fine with this. xD I also like Ayane, Wang Yuanji, & Naotora Ii. People should calm down, though. If there is a sequel, I guarantee they’ll add even more characters from each game. Least from the ones with a big ass roster of characters to choose from. The Warriors Orochi franchise started off with a small roster, too.

      Oh thank god! Ayane doesn’t have beach balls for boobs this time! That was a turn off with her character in Warriors Orochi 3 for me.

      Blue Reflection looks interesting, too.

      Oh right! The PS4 isn’t region locked! I’ll give it some time, though. If they decide not to bring this game to the west, I’ll import it. Chances are, though, that it will get localized eventually if it becomes as successful as the Warriors Orochi franchise.
