This thread and everyone in it should be Chaos Dunked for not mentioning Barkley's Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden for two whole pages.

That wasn't an RPGMaker game ;)

Yup. It was made with Game Maker.

Is there a difference?

(This question is rhetorical. Do not answer this.)

Nice figure for a guest character (even if it does highlight the stupid not-shorts).

Any word on her getting a figure for the alt costume she's in during the DLC where she's actually playable?

It's weird how I justify it with "well at least the top is covered"despite goofy knight hot pants.... And honestly it could be worse... Tales of Berseria lead-heroine worse... :p

We know so little about that game, yet its already well on its way to becoming a trainwreck. I can't wait for them to introduce the bland-as-hell male lead who's primary role in the plot is to help fix the heroine (and then hijack the whole damn thing).

Some of us appreciate the "slippery" nature of DD. It's sort of a drifter's paradise, in a sense. You can go around a good portion of a track sideways. Fun as hell. I'd also disagree about item balance. Items in Wii seem overpowered.
Either way, I play MK games for fun, and DD is much more fun for me to play than MK Wii. That makes it the superior MK game in my eyes. Some of the things you prefer about the Wii version, I see as things that "stiffened" it up in comparison to DD. I was exaggerating a bit when I said "garbage", but MK Wii is a clear step down, IMO.

On the other hand, I hate snakers with a passion. Fuck MKDS.

5  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Can you tell me about Suikoden II? on: September 02, 2015, 07:55:36 AM
i assume suikoden II systems are similar to V? in wich case meh suikoden 4 is better.

All of the mainline Suikoden systems are more or less built off of the first where you had your MC plus 5 in two rows of three either attacking, using Runes or Items, or Comboing with other party members. Your Out-of-Battle concerns was mostly sharpening your weapons, attaching certain Rune Pieces to your weapons, or Equipping a piece of Headgear, Armor or Accessory/Item (the last of which gave you two slots to work with).

Two gave you three Rune slots to work with along with hidden skills and a elemental proficiency mechanic that affected damage (and/or failure rate in Viki's case), and a Support Character slot (for plot purposes). You also got a third Accessory/Item slot to work with in your OoB setup.

Three was the most radical change since now you had to actually run up to enemies to whack them in the face and needed charge times for spells, on top of requiring your battle party to pair into three groups of 2 (or in certain cases, namely Hugo and Fubar, one unit mounted on top of another), along with Skills for Combat and Support Units in addition to making Magic Proficiency visible for added OoB customization.

Four cut your active party size down to only MC + 3 all in one line (except when on the boat where you could switch between 2 other teams of 4 for a grand total of 12 active members in your battle party; unfortunately, outside of one particular boss fight, this mechanic was almost entirely superfluous/useless since the two non active parties gained nothing anyways and the encounters were still just random trash). I can't recall any other major changes though.

Tactics isn't exactly a mainline game (even if its basically Four part 2), but the obvious difference here is that its an SRPG (you also don't get to recruit 108 characters since your party is focused entirely on combat roles; and in terms of SRPG differences, this one utilized elemental affinities + field effects to grant massive buffs/debuffs to anyone standing on affected tiles).

And Five basically went back to Suki 1 & 2's MC + 5 in two rows of 3 but retained visible skills and added load times everywhere.

I think the solution here is to invest in a Murse dudes.

Especially when your only alternative is Cargo Jorts and you really don't want to be that guy.

Also, Kokiri Village.

My problem with Kokiri Village is that I see all those particle effects floating around and am reminded of my time in the Mountain wilderness of Colorado where the air was the same and just how much my allergies sucked back then (hint: they still suck).

Also, I felt that the village was a bit too tutorialish for me. Especially since you have to run around hunting for 40 rupees for a Shield when you will basically never need to spend 40 or more rupees in a shop again (excluding the Happy Mask Shop and vanity purchases of potions; also, minigame parlors don't count). Also for a mysterious/mystical village of forest nymphs, it could've been better situated in the forest instead of just one measly rope bridge from the entrance.

So http://www.siliconera.com/2015/09/01/dragon-quest-vii-revealed-for-smartphone/ and http://gematsu.com/2015/09/ace-attorney-6-announced-3ds are happening.

Sadly I would've preferred the 3DS version over an iOS version of DQVII, given how prone Squeenix's various smartphone wares keep breaking upon updates, but I suspect that this is probably the best we're going to get now that NoA isn't willing to play ball anymore.

*Ker-delayed in Japan*

They're currently tightening up the graphics on level 2.

Crap, now the only excuse I have to avoid the New 3DS is the fact that I can't afford it. =(

Here. Let me help by stating that every time a new face plate comes out, you're either going to have to import from Japan, hope you get one of the 10 distributed in the state you live in or be prepared to grit your teeth, pound sand and pay 5x the retail price to an online scalper gently caressing your tear soaked face with their tongue while groping your wallet carrying back pocket.

Seriously, if you have to get a New 3DS get the XL so that you are not tempted to ever want to buy something that you have less of a chance at getting than a winning lottery ticket.

So we're finally getting the standard sized New 3DS with some collector's edi....oh wait. Nevermind, they're already sold out. You missed your chance. *plays the Price is Right's too bad trumpet sound effect*

I got home 2 hours after the NoA FB page announced it and it was sold out even that soon. Urgh. It's getting so hard to preorder the Nintendo bundles and special editions lately. Super frustrating. Hoping that maybe it'll be available through Gamestop.

Yeah, Nintendo is super frustrating these days with their SUPER-LIMITED-ONE-OF-100-ONLY bundles, you basically gotta hope you're around when it's up and commit right away. :/

At least when Atlus did it, it didn't really matter if you missed out on the CEs since they were usually only Music CD samples (they had anywhere between 4-9 tracks on them at best) and not getting them helped save on the Atlus tax ($60 for the era instead of $50; $40 and $30 respectful to handheld games). Although people got them anyways simply because of just how difficult it was getting those games at all in the first place, but that was an easily solved issue by preordering them. With Nintendo though, A) their games almost never go down in price, B) they've been moving away from physical releases (good luck trying to find boxed copies of OoT 3D and KI:U), C) the aforementioned 'only produces 100 copies of a CE to be distributed to that one store in NY and maybe a dozen to those 6 other major cities that I hope to god you live nearby (guess where I don't live) and D) now have a hoard of well trained greed-addled scalpers ready to descend like a hoard of locust on anything remotely limited they put out at a moments' notice.

And all of this is made doubly obnoxious due to NoA being in a massive 'no-risk' zone right now (the real reason why we didn't get FE:DS2 and nearly missed out on XBC; we have NoE to thank for that one as Operation Rainfall didn't really accomplish shit). If their games weren't as good as they've been, I would be washing my hands of them right now. And if this continues the way that it has been going, then maybe I will after all, because I'm getting too old for this shit, and Nintendo Fans be crazy ass fuckers.

Knights in the Knightmare was a euroshmup.
I am not familiar with that term. O.o

An indie shoot 'em up made in not-Japan.

Or in other words, a European fan of Touhou decided to make their own Touhou, but with Blackjack and Hookers.

Sadly, Nomura is at the helm of this one. Better luck next time.

That's the North American box art for the Remake, right? :P

Congrats on your 7th k post.
