If Indivisible counts,I just played the demo. And it's so good. I hope it gets funded.
Other than that, I've started playing Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.
I've stopped playing Pokemon for the foreseeable future but I do remember the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald generation being my least favorite. Hoenn just didn't have the variety needed to build a solid team and was too short to make a team that would be at a high enough level to really do well against the Elite 4 and Champ. Plus there was just so damn much water...made exploration a real pain. I wonder what exactly this upgrade did to improve the game, as someone at Gamestop claimed it did.
I played a demo of a similar 'catch a monster and use it to battle more monsters' game recently called Yokai Watch for the 3DS. It's even cutesier than Pokemon and rather than getting into random battles just by wandering around, you have to find hidden demons with a mechanic similar to finding clues and such in the Phoenix Wright games, except instead of clicking on everything, you move the magnifying glass around until you see the outline of a ghost/Yokai and you have to keep it on them even as they move around trying to avoid detection, then once they're revealed, you fight. I guess this way you never have to worry about being jumped when you have low health (although I assume your health regenerates automatically after each fight, even though it was only a demo version). Battle is also way different, as everything pretty much proceeds automatically except you have the option of choosing certain special commands, otherwise your party just uses their one or two basic moves. What's neat is that you have a party of six, but only three at a time can fight, and there's a wheel in the middle where you can rotate it and swap out fighters instantly, unlike Pokemon where you lose a turn by doing so. There's no way to 'pause' the battle though, so everything is constantly moving which I dislike but then, I am getting a little tired of RPG battles where what you need to do is so automatic that it gets boring. Things like this keep you on your toes so it's a little more engaging. Speaking of engaging battle systems...
Anyone ever play any of the Megaman Battle Network series? There's six of them and they started doing the 'two versions' thing like Pokemon around part 3. The RPG battle system is awesome, you've got to try it out, and amazingly enough if you have a Wii U, you can download up to part 4 on the Wii U Virtual Console, otherwise it's only available on the Gameboy Advance (except part 5, both versions are on the DS, though that one is my least favorite). My favorite was part 2, before they started splitting it up into two versions. There's also Megaman Star Force for the DS, which has 3 in the series, the first two having 3 different versions and the third only having two, though it really matters very little which one compared to the differences between the Pokemon games. The battle system in these is much less challenging but still reminiscent, though I'd have to say I genuinely preferred Battle Network to Star Force.
