Single-Player RPGs / Re: A JRPG About BOOBS!
« Last post by Grainofariver on Today at 07:02:12 AM »
"Who cares apathy" would be me not even going to the school dance and sitting on the couch watching reruns because I convinced myself that school dances were pointless and girls were waste of time. 
But I absolutely convinced myself that school dances were pointless and girls (more like, relationships) were a waste of time. I spent my school dance hanging out with friends, playing video-games and having a blast. I've also never gone on a date in my life despite being 26. Myself and every one of my friends has divorced parents, and those members of my family who are still married are either miserable or have a relationship where one half utterly dominates the other. Not a single one of my friends has been able to hold a steady relationship, though attempts result in such madness that one attempted suicide (and was shortly after diagnosed as bipolar, so at least something good came out of it). They say you can't be happy with someone else until you're happy with yourself, but after years of depression I'm actually pretty gosh-darn happy with who and where I am, so why risk it?

Why you gotta keep bringing up these landmines, man?

(I'm kidding.)
(About being offended: everything else is true. I think relationships are fine, but I've seen it go horribly wrong too many times to even remotely touch it myself.)

Were it an earlier gaming era, then I would shout righteous indignation at Obscure-Japanese-Game-V getting denied or butchered because it's setting a bad precedent and could bode poorly for the future of games like Game-V.  But we're beyond that now.  The market is wide open and still growing.  I feel that we don't have to worry about such things as much because for every Omega Z that gets shafted, dozens more just like it (or even more "extreme" for lack of a better word) still get in/get made, have gotten in/gotten made, and will get in/get made.  So the consumer is never without options because creators are freer to give us more options.   

What you perceive as "who cares apathy" I see more like this analogy: I'm crushing on a girl.  I go to the school dance.  I ask her to dance.  She turns me down.  I'm not feeling so great.  What do I do?  Do I sorrowfully obsess over her turning me down? Or do I go wash my face, dust myself off and ask another girl to dance?   I choose the latter.  Yeah, it hurts that I was turned down, but I'm not worried because there are plenty of pretty girls out there for Dincrest. 

"Who cares apathy" would be me not even going to the school dance and sitting on the couch watching reruns because I convinced myself that school dances were pointless and girls were waste of time. 

I think now it's just going into circular arguments.  I'm laughing at myself because I went off the rails in a thread about a silly JRPG themed around big boobs. 

Is it safe to say "we slugged it out, now let's hug it out"?

General Games / Re: Fire Emblem Heroes

I'm stockpiling orbs again myself. Actually not that interested in any of the new summer units, though I am amused by the blatant powercreep of Camilla vs Corrin, which makes me wonder a bit about the long-term health of the game. I hear power creep in this game is actually incredibly tame by gacha kusomobage standards compared to stuff like FFRK and such though, so I guess most people have much higher tolerances for this sort of thing than I do.

As for falling off the wagon, I've bought a few of the monthly deals they've been doing myself. As far as I know in terms of Orbs they really haven't been any cheaper than the usual price, but spending ~$10 on the game every month doesn't seem too bad if I think of it as being similar to a subscription MMO- I've probably played it about as much as one given how much I play the game on public transport. Anyway with Tomara joining the dark side, FTP torch is yours alone now Aeolus.

Annoyingly, almost all of my chance-pulled summer units from last year or Legendary banners are not bonus units for the ++. Masked Marth was already nearly capped on HM too, but in a twist, one of the Summer Gaiuses I locked in the torture basement of my barracks gets to be vindicated.

Getting Masked Marth yet again is a bore, but a free merge for a cheap Arena Assault Dragon Strangler is at least usable. They got 2 for 3 with the seals too, Flashing Blade and SPD Ploy are nice. Getting another double-stat seal actually would've been nice but they chose like the worst combo possible. HP paired with basically any other stat would be a nice seal to put on popular Infantry Pulse runners like Marisa, Seliph or Bartre, but RES is the one stat none of them need more of. The only imaginable use I can think of it is for a unit that runs Water Boost, but oops- it's locked to Berkut and nobody's going to sacrifice the guy for anything but his Lance.

I think this:
Why bother localising Zero/Ao no Kiseki? We already have plenty of JRPGS.
Why bother making that Anthem game? We already have plenty of shooters.
Remember PT? Don't worry about it friend: you know how many horror games there are?
(Heck, why even bother making any video games when there's so dang many that most people have a backlog of things that they will never get to?)
is a straw man argument.  Was there anything said about apathy towards localizing anything?  Nope.  No nihilism here. 
As I said earlier, gratuitous sex and violence in video games will always be there.  So we get gaming news every so often that a few naughty games were toned down or denied localization.  Big deal.  There is plenty of unadulterated stuff out there to scratch whatever bizarre fetish itch you may have. 
Seems pretty apathetic to me friend.

In fact, looking at it now, I shouldn't have said, 'why bother localising/releasing', but 'who cares that X didn't get localised/released'.

The Soundroom / Re: Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Basscappella

Here's the one I released this week, the Lost Woods theme from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Full version is here, and naked (no synth) version is here. Enjoy, let me know what you think and please subscribe.
In your "full" version, I hear no guitar at all, and your "naked" version sounded rather muddled.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but how about you start out by posting about what RPGs you enjoy, and what you're playing right now, or what kind of music you listen to (we've got threads for that), and maybe leave off posting links to your youtube channel for a bit.  Starting off your forum career by asking for subscriptions seems like bad faith.

The Soundroom / Basscapella: New YouTube channel covering VGM on bass
« Last post by ghaladen on Yesterday at 07:03:46 PM »
Title says it all, guys. I play bass, and (sometimes) use the help of a synth to cover video game tunes. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/ghaladen, and please subscribe if you like what you see. Full tunes are usually up on Fridays, and the corresponding Naked versions (without the synth, just straight bass tone) on Sundays. Thanks, and enjoy.

..but...but...I highlighted the title in red.  It's not good for my ego if you all do the exact opposite of my recommendation. :-(

ROFL

Sorry man, didn't think anyone would even notice my post.

I am waiting for it to be released on either the PS4 or PC.  I won't be buying a Switch just for this game no matter how appealing it is.

It's a Nintendo-published game so you'll be waiting a long time
