It turns out this is one of the XBLA releases this week.  If you don't know what it is, then don't worry.  Despite the name, it's not card games on motorcycles.  It's duals from the most important characters in all the series.  That's not important though.  The thing to focus on here is:  ONLINE YUGIOH!  Finally!  It's been delayed to hell the past several months but it's finally coming!  I don't think I've ever been this excited for an XBLA game.

OH MY GOD

I liked Yu-Gi-Oh like 5-6 years ago, I don't know anything past the first show.

#4 Edited by SethPhotopoulos (4850 posts) -

That''s cool.  Yu-Gi-Oh is fun but I haven't gotten really into it for years.

You haven't gone to a community college have you?  And the PSP Yu-Gi-Oh games have been like how the card game is played.

This is coming out at a good time for me. My friends and I were talking at the start of summer how we used to love playing Yugioh and we got back into it.  
 
Now that we're at schools in different cities this will be a great way to duel each other.  
 
This has nothing to do with the game but I finally broke down and bought a stardust dragon from a shop nearby and when I got home I learned that in the winter tins, you'll get one in the shooting star dragon tin...I was not pleased to hear that.

The GBA games were faithful to the card game rules.  There's no reason this wouldn't be, especially with online.  People are done with the card came because a while ago, almost all of the original good cards were banned from tournament play, which turned off most of the collectors (including myself).  I still love the game though, and I understand that to be the case for a lot of people who were hardcore fans of the card game.  I'm buying this thing the first opportunity I get.

He is not a freaky fish guy!

Can I shoot Tea in the face in this game? No. Then no thank you.

#14 Posted by JJOR64 (18782 posts) -

If it's 800 points, I will get it.  If not, then I guess I will wait.

#15 Posted by LordAndrew (13972 posts) -

Wait, so you're telling me there's never been an online Yu-Gi-Oh! game before? Why did it take them this long to get to this point?

There was/is an online Yu-Gi-Oh thing for PC.

Can we just get a Yu-Gi-Oh game with a real story?

#19 Posted by Rockanomics (1150 posts) -

I had absolutely no idea people still cared about Yu Gi Oh

#20 Posted by Shirogane (3559 posts) -

I'll just...be over here playing Magic by myself... 
 
Kinda funny that, over here Magic is quite a bit more popular than Yu-Gi-Oh. Though there are people who still play it a lot.
#21 Posted by Icemael (6269 posts) -

An online TCG is like an online tabletop game. 99% of the appeal just goes right out the window.

But then again, I don't like online gaming in general -- I never even play games that were designed to be played online in the first place, like Battlefield, without having at least one of the other players with me in the flesh.

#22 Posted by ArbitraryWater (10992 posts) -

So, uh, this is more exciting than King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match? Because that also totally comes out on Wednesday. And isn't based on a Children's Card Game (props to those who get the reference).

It's a card game.  Even the anime, the thing the card game is based on, has a story that's totally stupid.  Aside from a gigantic tournament/contest situation a-la pokemon, a Yugioh story would only be shitty.  That being said, this game will have a story.  I'm just saying the online is going to be the thing to buy it for.

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT 

 
I will be buying this though, because I love me them card games without the physical cards. 
 
Hopefully they won't completely fuck over everyone who buys it by making mandatory DLC like Magic did.

I would understand this if a TCG had some level of variability like an RPG, but card games are completely bound within their rule sets so I really don't see how it is that much different outside of the social experience of playing in a gaming environment or whatever. 
 
Also I don't want to buy hundreds of fucking cards just to play a game; I went down that dark, dark road in my youth and I don't plan on returning to it.

The DS games have Wi-Fi ya know...

They lost me with the whole 5D stuff. Does that mean it has new rules? Back in my day you stared will 8000 life points, had 40-60 cards in your deck and a side deck if you wanted, and sacrificed monsters according to the number of stars on them. Did this 5D stuff change the whole battle mechanic?

Same rules new cards.  They added synchronization but I don't know what that is.

It's pretty much fusion but you need a synchro monster instead of polymerization.

See you guys already lost me. They changed it so you need a monster to fuse and there are new cards? What about my Dark Magician and Red Eyes Black Dragon???? The old game was so good why would they change it. Are the new cards and additions hard to grasp?

No idea, but this is a system seller if I've ever seen one.  You should totally buy a 360 for this $10 downloadable title.

I agree that the card-buying aspect is ridiculous, but playing in real-life is not just a matter of social experience -- it's also the feeling of drawing physical cards, holding them in your hand, laying them down et cetera. Video games can no more replicate that than they can replicate the feeling of racing with an actual car on an actual track, or shooting an actual gun at actual people (those are more extreme cases, but you get the idea).

That's true, I'll agree that there is a certain atmosphere that can only be generated by physically participating in a game. 
 
For my purposes of simply wanting to play me some card games though, I think this will do well enough for now.

So does this mean that Kaiba can finally duel Marik? Can Yugi duel Yami? Can Bakura duel the other Bakura?

You're also forgetting that being competitive in these card games requires spending upwards of $1000 to get a deck that's actually good.  I know that all said, I spent around that much on yugioh over the couple of years I played it.

How much will this cost? 

#38 Posted by bobafettjm (1252 posts) -

I have to say I can't wait to get this game. I am in my late 20's now and I STILL love playing Yu-Gi-Oh.

Konami's saying it will be 800 points
#40 Posted by bobafettjm (1252 posts) -

If it is 800 points that is an amazing deal. Even for 1200 or 1600 points it will be a must buy game for me.

@Shadow:   Hey, where did you read about the game being 800 points?
#44 Posted by msavo (7522 posts) -

I know this might seem a little weird and sad but I might buy a 4gb 360 slim just for this game... who knew a YuGiOh game was a system seller? 

#45 Posted by JJOR64 (18782 posts) -
@RE_Player92:   You might as well get a 250 GB system if you are going to buy an Xbox.  You will use up that 4 GBs really quick.

Never mind.  They confirmed it for 800 points on their Facebook page.  Totally getting this day one now.  Glad I didn't get Snoopy this week.
#47 Posted by Jadeskye (4359 posts) -

It's been many years since i last looked at Yu-Gi-Oh, i'm strangely tempted to get this.

Assuming "any mode" counts online games, I'll probably have that Ultimate Duelist achievement within a week of getting the game.
