That’s the idea, his running for his life, same reason why survival horror games needs to be difficult.

I understand the reasoning behind it, as its directly related to the lore in a way.

Its just that i prefer relaxing puzzle games instead of frenetic ones like Catherine.

The real concern for me is the fact the online is still busted, carrying on from the JP version, and Atlus doesn't give a damn.

I can't in good conscience support this release, despite my love for the game. Atlus' radio silence from both sides, frankly, pisses me off.

That and the fact that for whatever reason this is not (so far) coming out for the PC and the XB1X (which plays the original Cat in glorious 4K) are rather disappointing developments.

Actually it does not "X Enhance" the game, it is simply backwards compatible with the lower res 360 version. Full body would have been the ticket for Xbox 4k

Glad to see they haven't cut too much out of this. Went ahead and picked it up.

The steelbook game is discounted a few bucks om Amazon today. Was thinking about getting the collector box but decided to pass.

IGN Is stupid, dumb or even both?

Thats the point why i hate the reviews.... and more are copy paste in other websites.

The game is for 9.5. and the most important thing is not censored.

Im glad to pick and have the best choice... Not waiting for buy the game for crap reviews.... Pick for the collector edition fast as i can and trust in my experience that the game is uncensored.

In Mexico there is still the Collector Edition and Steelbook...

mekes mekes - did you pick it up? Curious to see another “legacy” Catherine player’s opinion.

Really enjoying the new cutscenes and the punishing difficulty. Though Rin’s subplot feels a bit tacked on.

Its just that i prefer relaxing puzzle games instead of frenetic ones like Catherine.

The game is not really relaxing, but has great atmosphere and one of most “mature” plots to ever come out of Atlus. To fully enjoy it, one has to “git gud” or as they say it in your country, “não dar mole”. :messenger_winking_tongue:

I have! But I’m not at home.. Staying with some family members for the next week or so because I picked up a leg injury and my front door is up 4 flights of stairs. Hoping to start playing the game next week if I’m lucky. Looking forward to joining the thread, but trying to remain spoiler free as much as possible until I can play. Hope you are all enjoying!

I finally picked up a copy of this today. Got the Heart's Desire Premium Edition. Usually I don't care or like steelbooks that much, but the art on this steelbook is fantastic. I really like it.

How's the game been for those who have played it? I've been wondering if the new content was enough to warrant a new purchase for someone who played it a bunch when it first came out. It's been years since I played the original, so I was kinda looking forward to going through those puzzles again.

I actually like new puzzles in the Remix version, even on Normal difficulty some of the part is difficult because of the new block. I LOVED Catherine when it originally came out and I’m loving the Full Body.

Can someone tell me what the main gameplay differences are (in terms of Golden Playhouse, Babel, Rapunzel, etc.). I already fully completed everything the original game had to offer and just wanted to know if the additional features are enough to warrant a purchase at full price or if I should wait for sale. I did enjoy the original quite a bit, but I would rather not pay $60 to replay essentially the same game again.

When you start the game it ask you if you want classic puzzle or Remix, in remix you have new type of block that change up the puzzles.

Crazy. I'll probably play it like that, even though I suck at the puzzles lol.

I didn't wanna jump into the story right away, and so I tried Babel, and man do I suck at it.

Does that block make it harder? Cause I'll just play it default again. I played game on easy cause I sucked and I still loved it.

Well in one hand you make nice support for yourself without pulling bunch of blocks but in other hand bunch other block will lose support and fall off. I would say in normal difficulty it isn’t too bad.

I have recently replayed this game on Xbox One, with an evil ending. I really like it.

I don't know if I will be able to play it in English on anything else than PS4 though. That"s annoying. I am wondering if I should finally invest in a PS4 because of the Japanese games that are stacking and have my interest.

The reality is most Japanese developers rather release their games on PS4 or Switch because those systems are the ones selling well in Japan. Most people who are interested in Japanese games already have PS4 or Switch or even PS4 + Switch combo.

I do have the Switch, but it is not turning as good as I had hoped. Seeing Sega/Atlus not announcing games like Catherine, Persona 5 or Sakura Wars on Switch as well is extremely perplexing. I don't understand these decisions. Not even talking about the picture quality on this console, with blurry games and 30fps max most of the time.

I bought Switch for exclusives games like Astral Chain, Bayonetta, Daemon X Machina, Xenoblade, SMTV and Fire Emblem and PS4 for Japanese games that Switch doesn’t get. It’s perfect combo for someone like me.

I still believe SMTV will come to Playstation later.

But you definitely do the right thing.

So it's not actually new layouts for the stages? I don't understand, is that a new block or is it just cosmetic for indication that that specific pattern is changed from the original? Do the gold prizes unlock for both individually or are they shared?

It is not cosmetic, it a new block and layout out is different thanks to those blocks. Also Gold prize is separate between Classic and Remix.

There's basically four stage layouts now: regular Normal, regular Hard, regular Remix, and Hard remix.

Hard remix is super difficult, and this is coming from someone who platinumed the first game(and regularly gets bodied at the tournaments, lol).
Very true, the new block that are attached to each other that you pull all them at once can make some stage very tricky to get through.

Nearing the end of my first play through, it so different .
Is there anyway of playing the Original Story in this?
AlsoI've notice there's no hints about Erica being dude, if anything they seem to be suggesting shes an actual girl now, this new?
Then again it may come later and I'm misremembering when in the game it was.

Changes were made to the localization to adjust problematic lines from the original, but I don't know what was kept and what wasn't.

How does Rin affect the overall story compared to the original? Never played either version, so please no spoilers.

Well I can’t say anything about the story without spoiler but when she is on Nightmare world she helps you out by slowing down the rate blocks falling.

I beat it a whole ago for the first time. Overall, I really enjoyed it. It's cool to play a game where you play as a regular adult and not a high schooler or super hero,etc once in a while.

I was more wondering if for example any of the cutscenes or other points of story have been altered to accomodate her inclusion.
There are some changes but Rin will be more involved to the story depends on your choice.

They integrate her as if she was originally there, cut scenes,and gameplay, she's can also effect the endings.
it's done very well.
Also her Name is Qatherine, Rin is just for short and so you don't get confused

Beat it again last night, and went for the Rin route this time. This time did the Japanese voices (bought the voice pack), and I don't really care for Vincent's VA. I know Vincent is supposed to be in his early 30s, but the Japanese VA made him seem way older then Troy Baker's soothing voice.

Full Body has only cemented it's spot on my top 5 games of all time (#3) as it's an improvement on the original IMO in many ways.

Edit: Jesus fuck I just found out Troy Baker is 43...fml

I am on the fence for buying this its 52.00 at Target, I just dont want to spend that money for a 10 hour game, lately I have been holding off on buying games that seem short ( Link's awakening) at full price. especially since black friday I foresee this game going down to 30.00, I never played the original, and persona 5 is one of my favorite games of all time. I need some assurance

You can put three times that into this game just trying to master the higher difficulties and see the alternate endings.

Also, I agree that Rin is very well integrated.
