Don't care. Don't see any new IPs.

Phil has a hot asian chick foot fetish like me?????
Speaking of hot..Ikumi Nakamura is still without a job. And Phil is in Japan now. I'm just saying, Persona is high on my list. But something with Nakamura way higher.

Phil's list should look like this:

  1. Convince Hironobu Sakaguchi
  2. Capture Ikumi Nakamura
  3. Crash SEGA meeting
  4. Visit Hajime Tabata

1. I think Sakaguchi is too in love with mobile games now to come back to consoles.
2. No argument there. Her energy is refreshing.
3. A few titles from SEGA would be nice.
4. Personally, hard pass. He's made or been apart of no game I've liked.

I keep reiterating this but given xbox's strategy with studio acquisitions as of late, we shouldn't expect a huge splash. At best, new agreements with japanese studios to at least port their games to the xbox platform when they release it out west, instead of actively ignoring the console and going to PS4, Switch and PC only. And if they do acquire a studio, expect it to be a small to medium size independent studio that they can build up.

I wish MS would pull an Initiative type move and build up a brand new studio of their own in Japan. But they've had years to do it and still haven't gotten their Japanese gaming priorities together. I'm being pessimistic but I don't expect any grand changes for xbox next gen with respect to Japanese developers.

I dont know man. It feels like DOA lost its soul when he left
Oh it definitely went full on micro-transactions after he left, but it had the bones of a decent fighting game. Devil's Third was an all around awful game.

Team Ninja already had the formula for their sequels..it was hard to screw that up, but they still kind of did.

By that token, Itagaki not only had the formula but created the formula for those type of games and failed spectacular. Team Ninja rebounded pretty well and created Ni-OH. But we can agree to disagree.

I will say this again and I dont care what anybody says.

Itagaki made Tecmo and after he left it was never the same again. I never bought a Tecmo game after he left.

There is a lot of people who played the lastest DOA and they all said it is not the same.

That should tell you something.
