I love how Etna subverts the superhero transformation trope.

And once again, we have old-school Dragon Quest showing us good ideas that more modern games still haven't caught on to. 

And this is more of a specific annoyance than anything else, but I feel like in newer Pokemon games (e.g. X/Y, Sun/Moon) the Legendaries were total gimmes and, frankly, kinda weak compared to many garden variety Pokemon in my roster.  I would like to see a return of is having to rise to some kind of challenge to get the Legendaries.  If I have to work for my Legendaries, I'll value them more.

Seriously, if you're going to put in a super powerful boss to fight in your game, you need to provide a larger reward than an accessory you don't need.

Like say, having said super boss show up and defeat the final boss for you.

One of the four memorable things to come from DQVI (alongside Terry, the Murdaw fight and the Flying Bed).

Although not a pet peeve or anything remotely detestable, I sometimes question the logic of rewards given after optional super-boss battles. 

For example, defeating Ragu Ragla in Wild ARMs gives you the Sherriff's Star. It's not a bad prize prize as equipping it as an accessory negates all status effects.  However, do you really need it?  You already defeated the game's most powerful boss without it and the final boss will be a pushover in comparison.
Yes.  It's even worse in Wild Arms 3.  You have to go through 100 floors of a dungeon where you can't save and must go through in its entirety in one session to fight Ragu O'Ragla.  You do get a Sherriff Star which enables every single personal skill on the equipped character, but you need to be level 100 to use it.  At that point, the reward is pointless.  Honestly, if it I wasn't playing the remaster on PS 4, I wouldn't have bothered.  At least you get an additional reward in the form of a trophy.

Still, winning an item that you really don't need as a reward is utterly pointless.  Seriously, it isn't worth it even with the remaster giving you a trophy.  If I couldn't put my PS 4 to sleep, I would've abandoned the effort.

Seriously, if you're going to put in a super powerful boss to fight in your game, you need to provide a larger reward than an accessory you don't need.

Joke answer. 

What I can't bear is the Owl Bear from Phantasy Star, because it neither resembles an owl or a bear.  It's unbearable!  http://www.phantasy-star.net/art/screenshots/psi/monsters/owlbear.gif

RPGFan: Site / Week in Review Live
« Last post by ScottC on August 17, 2018, 08:53:52 PM »
Tomorrow on the twitch channel at 2PM EST will be Week in Review Live a new format for Week in Review where we do it live in a podcast format on Twitch.  It something of an experiment where we talk about all the news and reviews on the site for the past week.  We felt Week in review in a written format was limiting and not a complete review.  So if you have an hour to hang out with us on the Twitch channel each week and talk about RPGs and junk stop on by.  I will say however as an experiment if it goes well it might lead to other video related stuff in the future.  We are testing the waters here essentially and hope you will join us.
