Of the three games announced as part of Level-5's Guild02 lineup, Kaiju ga Deru Kinyoubi ("Monsters Come Out on Friday) sounded the most fascinating. A game in which you play as a boy in a small town turned upside-down by a sudden giant monster invasion -- that premise alone should make you feel all gooey inside. Unfortunately, it didn't appear on the list of Guild02 games receiving localization. Why the snub?
Our European bruddah suckling another cow's udder, Daan Koopman, posted a huge batch of clips from Monsters Come Out on Friday, which arrived in the Japanese eShop just last week. After watching all of them, I can totally understand why Level-5 would skip such a game for a Western release. Not that I wouldn't still want to play it, but I can see the logic.
Monsters Come Out on Friday seems more like a lifestyle experience than a true game. You walk around talking to townspeople, going to school, and hanging out with friends. The titular monsters don't make an appearance until a good while later, and then you are only a more or less a spectator (though you do have some kind of connection). The most you ever actually do is play a collectible card game from time to time.
I still would like Level-5 to take a chance. The game looks so darn charming. See for yourself in the video dump below.

My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.Pixie The Fairy The demon threat is real.[img]http://www.destructoid.com//ul/313317-those-meddling-kids-persona-4-jumping-all-sharks/2015-10-03-180913.jpg[/img]Mike Martin [Youtube]https://youtu.be/MT45BzNcf5g[/youtube]RadicalYoseph Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles)
This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).Lawman What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...Terry 309 Been trying to get Tales Of Phantasia finished before Zestiria comes out... How i'm going to get through that game I have no clue... especially when Exist Archive comes out in December and I have to play that too... also i've still yet to finish Grandia 2TheLimoMaker Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had? Bardley Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.Firuzi Gafrindashvili Resident Evil: Revelations 2RadicalYoseph I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.FlanxLycanth I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?Gamemaniac3434 Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too. nanashi You will be missed. 2001 - 2015 ATHF RIP. ... oh and uh, GET OUT OF MY FREAKING POOL!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vNZ-KJwdegSpielerDad Freezing my ass off at a Penn State football game. Half of the hicks at this stadium probably didn't graduate high school, yet they're rooting for a college football team. I wish I was on my warm den playing MGS V.AvtrSpirit Gosh darn it, she's done it again! That Sapphire's a talented minx.

And does it make you less tolerant of games? I definitely gave games less of a chance when I knew I could sling them back in the envelope and get a new one.Termadoyle Probably the most awesome soundtrack in an indie game. And the game isn't so bad either. win/win situation tbqh.
