Taka, They only show pricing for a product if they have been told what to price it at.
XCOM-2, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 have the pricing already set for example.
There has been no price set for the game yet so they can't actually list a price for it. If I had to guess, I would say £25-£40 but if they were smart it would likely be closer to £30 mark or lower given it's like 2 or 3 years old, was only on portables before hand and overcharging for ports of portables on steam doesn't really go over well.
Though this wouldn't exactly be the first time someone has charged an AAA price for a port that's a few years old, so I won't be surprised if it actually retails at £40.
For future reference you can use steamdb for more in-depth info on the game (or games) if you want, they tend to get updates on new/old products long before the store actually updates its information.
Taka, I give you Toukiden: Kiwami a terrible port from a PSP and PSVita game that retailed at a cost far above the average price for a fully fledged multiplatform triple A game which normally retail at around £40 (or 60 dollars, for the sake of clarity the game costs £50 to buy right now) or in some cases lower.
I'm taking the likes of Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Bloodborne, Metal Gear Solid V and what else have you.
Total Biscuit did a full review on Koei Tecmo ports (A few of which I own, the most recent one being One Piece Pirate Warriors 3) so I will link that too since it's worth a look.
Thankfully Koei is terrible when they port games to the PC since they always port the lowest quality version of the game they have which is either the PSP version or the PS3 version. They never listen to feedback either so we are left in quite a hilarious predicament.
Don't buy their games to send a message and risk them pulling everything in the process.
Or buy the crappy ports and hope they will change their ways which is very unlikely.
Thankfully Danganronpa isn't made by them so the odds that this will be fairly priced AND be a good port is higher than normal though still not 100% certain since importers of games like these don't really understand the digital marketplace in the west fully and likely never will because Japan is still really backwards when it comes to online marketplaces for gaming and the PC in general.
Forgot to report on this before I went off-line an hour ago due to a doctor's appointment today.
There are more games slated for this franchise.
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is slated for Steam release in the near future. There are no other information from Spike Chunsoft. Source
I wasn't aware of Koei's quality for porting games to the PC. Not sure if it's related. The only time I had problems with ports was a recent game, Valkyria Chronicles. I can't seem to find images. I just screenshot off my Steam account right now.
Taka, that looks more like a graphical problem related to your card than a problem with the port. From what I gather the port is actually really good. I would likely comment myself on the quality but I have yet to download it, maybe I will do that tonight and see how it goes.
At least we are getting the games, but in all seriousness they should at least be attempting to make a good port, and Koei rarely seems interested in making a proper port of their games.
The Warriors games have no mouse support at all so camera and character movement is done solely on the keyboard (Literally the stupidest control scheme I have ever used thus far on PC), the key prompts that show in game won't change regardless of the input you are using (Getting keyboard prompts while using an xbox controller for example), and the graphics options are basic as hell too.
They are quite literally the definition of port.
Though for the images, the link above the image will bring you to a page with the image on it, and from there if you right click and get the page URL you can put that into your browser and then right click and view the image to get the source.
It's easier if you just log in through your browser though since you just have to open the image and then right click + view image to get at the source.
A graphical problem. Huh, never heard of that. I thought it was a glitch when I climb up the ladders, the character falls beneath the landscape and into this black hole. Unable to move at all. I never did look up if anyone else had that error for that particular map.
Oh I'm such a noob. That's how you get the images.
Oh you don't have to. I was just bringing up an example that I thought was related to porting gaming quality and issues since you brought an example of Koei's Warriors Game. The mission was chapter 15: Citadel Ghirlandaio (or known as Siege of Ghirlandaio) Part 1. It's midway into the story of the game.
If I had capture on video, it would made more sense. Sorry, I wasn't descriptive on said glitch.
After 3 hours, I kind of get what the game play mechanic.
Free time is basically dating sim of some sorts. You buy presents using coins found all over the place.Pretty much, you explore every nook and cranny.
Then, when you deal with the case. You search for clues and talk to folks more than twice.
The most challenging part was the trial where you had to memorize or took notes (I wish I did) and use the clues like bullets. You got to be careful. I messed up twice and got a game over on my first trial. I got used to it. The only thing I haven't got used to was this gameplay mechanic:
I didn't know where to post this since we don't have an anime thread for Danganronpa.
This is an article about the 2nd game.
Danganronpa Writer Says 2's Characters' Stories Ended With Game
Kazutaka Kodaka elaborates on why there isn't a planned Danganronpa 2 anime
Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu magazine revealed new details for the Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibōgamine Gakuen television anime earlier this week, including characters connected to the original Danganronpa game. Since the reveal, the game's original scenario writer and creator Kazutaka Kodaka discussed why the anime adaptation is jumping straight to 3 and why there isn't an a planned anime adaptation of the Danganronpa 2 game.
The characters for the Danganronpa anime were announced, it seems. The reason we skipped an anime of 2 is because we wanted to show you a new Danganronpa. 2's story ended in 2, and those characters' stories ended there.
[This] weekend's promo video isn't a surprise announcement for an anime of Danganronpa 2 or something. It's something related to 3.
Well, maybe it'd be nice if we could have the characters from 2 have some kind of spin-off like Dangan Kirigiri and Dangan Togami. Personally, I don't really feel like writing it so maybe someone else can do it...
It's not like I hate the characters from 2, but for example, I can't write a "what happened after" for the characters of 2 so easily. After all, I'd have to dig really deep down. It's also impossible to rebuild the title from zero as a different work. I don't want to end this in cheap fan service.
They're characters I created, so there's no way I'd hate them. It just really ticks me off when people say "But you skipped 2!" or "You really hate 2's characters!" all the damn time. I don't hate them, but I'm not going to write their story, and I CAN'T write their story.
Taka: I'm going to make new discussion threads for Winter 2020 anime while trying to finish unfinished business for Fall 2019.

HungryWorld: Came back from my vacation. Took a present with me: sickness
Jan 7, 2020 13:49:59 GMT
Taka: Sorry to hear that Hungryworld. Dream Been mostly PC. I did use MAC a lot because that one school class had MAC. Not sure what DIO is. I have to say PC since that is I'm mainly using. I'll be present in the weekends.

Taka: My hometown is affected by MLK fever. We celebrate him every Sunday of this month. That's why I'm absent. I wished I get time.

Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
