Steam generally has better prices than GOG. For instance, Steam's Unreal pack has EVERY game in that series (except 2003 but that's sort of been stricken from the annals of history) for 15 whereas GOG seems to omit ONP and UT3 and is like, 20 or 25. Additionally Steam's oddworld pack is like, 3 bucks. GOG's is more.

hearing him called SEH-cil instead of SEE-cil is going to drive me up the wall. :P

SEH-cil is the male variant. SEE-cil is the female variant. How do you not know this?

Yeah, DQ4 DS is sort of a castrated translation of a castrated port of a PSX remake.

DQ5 is pretty damn great though.

Most recent ROTK was released on PC.

Sort of prefer Paradox's games, though.

CT wasn't silly. It was lighthearted. There's a significant difference.

A major plotpoint involves reviving the main character with a doll you win at the fair.

Anyway modern WRPGs are trending towards grimdark grrr but I think that's sort of modern gaming as a whole and it's stupid as hell.

I wish I could pinpoint the exact moment it happened, really, but I can't. Sometime before Oblivion came out, though, as exemplified by the fact that Morrowind had a sense of humor and Oblivion did not*.

I mean, even PS:T, something which SOUNDS total grimdark, is more Seussian than anything.

Basically what I'm saying is that Ultima 7's sexually frustrated unicorn, bee-loving nudist colony, and dragging a hapless 15 year old to a whorehouse totally would not fly today (although the last one... probably for different reasons. Sparky is totally funny though. He's like "8D" and Iolo's like ":(" and then the Avatar is all "Name job goodbye." Totally lulz. Totally, totally lulz).

* One game had you collecting the twelve whatevers to save a starving, injured fisherman. The other one had you finding pants for some guy that got his pants robbed.)

we love and respect the eras of gaming we grew up with

I grew up with 16-bit gaming and don't like it :(

Got the fire ring in DQ5. I think. Wonder how long till I can start knockin' chicks up.

Also gave my Evil Apple a top hat. Suddenly I like RPGs again.

Recent talk on the other board's got me jonesin' for some Elona (up in this bitch).

Graceycat usually latches on to bare flesh with her teeth, uses the front claws to hold/hook in (she's strong as hell for a 6/7 month old kitten) and then uses the back claws to rip and tear.

She's pretty amazing :3

(i find getting mauled cute so i usually just wear gloves and denim shirts and let her go to town)

I'm trying to come up with a list of five JRPGs that came out in 2009.

I can think of three.

RPGs from Western Europe are about as distinct from WRPGs as JRPGs are. To the point where you can look at something and say "Yeah that's Czech as fuck" from the trailer alone.

I think there's a general stagnation issue any time you start getting a set of codified... "classics." When an inarguable canon develops, it sort of becomes the standard by which all new games are judged.

Case in point, if you make a 4x-in-space game, it's going to be compared to MoO2, no matter what approach you're taking to developing it. It leads to a stupid situation where you can't actually develop *past* those games because you have to match their paradigm and features point-by-point

With JRPGs, in particular, you have games like CT and... I don't know. Fuck, what JRPGs are popular?

This is why, mentally, I have an iconoclast-by-default mentality

Also I generally think most small-time game devs don't have any fucking idea what they're doing when they're making RPGs. That sort of... stems from a similar issue. The notion of a go anywhere, do anything game has been given an inappropriately inflated level of importance. so, again, stuff being unable to really progress because it's being held to a stupid and thoroughly arbitrary standard.
