So, back in January I preordered the 20th Anniversary Digimon Pendulums. They just arrived, and it's not too complicated. Only problem is that it's complicated enough to warrant reading the manual... which is in Japanese.

I've figured out how to clean up the poop, at least

I've pretty much figured it out at this point. Right now I have a Ganimon and a Yokomon.

EDIT: after doing some research, it looks like the only way to get Ragna Lordmon is to also have the 20th Anniversary V-pet, because the pendulums don't have the Zubamon line

It's also probably a data-type Ultra-level Digimon, which is sorely underrepresented

Anyway, what's the consensus on the Digimon game coming? I was going to get the last one but there was SO much complaining about how garbage it was, I skipped it.

If you mean Survive, then I'm optimistic. The Cyber Sleuth games were pretty great so another JRPG by the same studio could be good. As for the mobile games, I avoid that stuff like the plague, so I have no clue if this new one will be good

Uhh, on the topic, is there anything I should do in Cyber Sleuth before moving on to Hacker's Memory? I have most Digimon and a bunch of Medals already, and finished the storyline.

I'd recommend doing all the side quests that aren't the Royal Knights or Seven Deadly Digimon battles, if only because they're charming. You might have to run around Nagano Broadway to trigger the one with JimmyKEN, though.

There's the aforementioned battle missions and the final offline tournament if you want a postgame challenge, but other than that, there really isn't much other than that besides finishing off the Digimon list and the medal collection. The registered Digimon and the medals carry over into Hacker's Memory if you transfer your save file, which is a neat bonus if you 100%-ed the first game like I did

I'm guessing Cyber Sleuth Complete for PC is a fig leaf for Survive being delayed and to build up hype for it by bringing good Digimon to PC and getting people hungry for more. Hopefully they don't get hit with any sort of exclusivity nonsense like Gungrave did.

Iím not sure. With the original Cyber Sleuth being de-listed in the PS4 digital store it felt like they were building up to this

What? Oh gently caress me. I was just coming in to ask if I needed to see anything after 02 before jumping into Tri because it was $10 for all of it on Steam today.

I can't refund this, so, uh... I guess the question still stands.

There isnít anything else you need to watch.

I liked Tri so I wouldnít say that you shouldnít watch it.

Edit: on second thought there is a recurring setting element in Digimon that you should be aware of. Thereís oftentimes a master computer in charge of the Digital World named Yggdrasil whoís will is followed by the 13 Royal Knights. Yggdrasil unfortunately has a habit of going mad

Should I start with hacker's memory or cyber sleuth?

Cyber Sleuth. Hackerís Memory assumes that youíve played the first game and will reference stuff that are twists from later in the first game. Also there are events in HM that just donít make sense unless youíve played the first game

Why aren't we talking about Digimon SURVIVE more? It looks like they're starting to finally give gameplay details and I'm interested to see if the free action/drama action economy makes digivolutions work more like they do in the show? Seems like it could make evolution trees interesting and less about re and de evolving and more about the bond with a given character.... I'm pretty hopeful!

Man, I really hope we get a release date soon

Bandai could probably steal some thunder from Pokemon if they announced that the next World or Story game was going to have every Digimon included, after all including everyone was one of Pokemon's big selling points from Gen 2 onward, and now that they abandoned it that leaves a gap in the market

This is just not feasible, though. Hackerís Memory had fewer total monsters than Sword and Shield did, and it added 90 new Digimon! Add the fact that each Digimon needs to be able to evolve/devolve into multiple other Digimon, and even matching the amount of Pokťmon in Sword and Shield after the Armor and Crown dlc would add an insane amount of bloat

While Digimon has been drawing from the Persona well recently with in terms of both design (e.g. NoblePumpkinmon) and writing (e.g. Cyber Sleuth) I feel like that be a line too far to cross, especially this early when we haven't even seen the full cast and said cast's age.

Hell, Cyber Sleuth even has the same character designer as Devil Survivor!
