I do not buy too many games really. I tend to play on my iPad more, so the last one I bought was DQ 11.

Are there not to many good things to buy on the Apple Store. I know they are kown for charging when Google Play Store tends to offer htose for free, or cheaper, but there has to be a good amount of decent games out compared to a few years ago.

They have a ton of games, but I either cannot play them due to the control setup, or they are not that enjoyable.

Plus, Kemco is the only one making RPGs.

drill told me about Fire Emblem Heroes, and that was nice, but I do not get offline play like I do with Kemco RPGs and Dragon Quest.

Kemco makes ok stuff, but I understand the whole idea of doing a RPG properly on a touch interface just dose not sit right with me as really that fun in the long term. If it is done right I suppose it could be though. I have bought only one mobile game in my entire life when I had my iPhone 3GS way back when, and that was Angry Birds. I wanted to see what it was all about. Don't get me wring its really fun, but not something I can devote that much time to nor do I wish to.

I see. For me, I just want a game that has an end of some sorts.

I used to play a game called Let's Golf, but only the first two were good. The third one was freemium, which was annoying.

Ya games with a finite start, and finish are harder to find in the mobile sector mostly because it is so dominated by those freaken micro transactions that encourage continues play or pay to win type concepts. I know that there is a good amount MMOs that have gone mobile as the mobile MMO market is now widespread around the world as up until recently it was mostly in Japan, and Korea.

Yeah, that is why I hate freemium games.

The one things that I wish was more prevalent on the mobile scene would be VNs. Other than turn based RPGs, they seem to be the only kind of games today that do not require two hands.

There is Ace Attorney and Planetarian, but nothing like Clannad, Narcissu, and other series.

I would honestly love to see VNs go mobile. There are SIM like games on the android store, but they're all pay to access more of the story(s). I find that annoying, so I've only tried one or two. They're not bad content wise, but having to wait a day to have the necessary in game thing that lets you progress is annoying. I think that it's a horrible business model.

Just what I need a reason to never put my phone down ever again. :) VNs on the mobile sector would be so cool! It would be fairly easy too since they are mostly animated picture books for the most part. Best thing is there would not be a reason to have just a mobile version since the full version would likely just work on a smart phone since VNs aren't that demanding.

Just be careful you do not crack one open that causes you to shed tears in public, but yeah, they would not need any real changes to be ported to other platforms.

I see exactly what you mean some of those stories can be downright sad, and make me cry on more then one occation. Clannad for one did this.

On another note there is a surprising amount of VNs for sale on Steam I have noticed. Has anyone gotten some from there recently?

Yah Steam is better for the shooters, strategy, and indie games. I kid you not there is a lot of indie projects on there these days. I honestly think thats a good thing though I may even check out a few when I get a chance to afford any.

For me, it's more trying to find good ones, preferably cross platform, and I have been busy with other things.

I'm less than 24 hours from getting Spyro, so I guess I can count that right?

Oh yes I understand the being busy part. In my case I may end up buying something on steam soon as I have been taking a little break from all my computer classes since I watched so many recently. So a good game may just be what I need right now.

Hope you enjoy playing that one. I have heard many good things about it.

PS3: Resident evil: zero, 1, RE:make, Code Veronica: X and 4. (Halloween sale was good to me). 

I am a pretty big Resident evil fan. :D
