Even if the combat is still sort of shallow, the addition of demon negotations should improve things a lot (Also, I though combat in the first game was a lot more fun if you relied strictly on your demons and never attack yourself).

Anyway, I probably need that jack frost doll so it can hang out with my nauga doll and they'll go on adventures or something, so what's the place to preorder from nowadays? I mean, with the US not having an economy now, what stores are f'in up preorders or whatever?

though it seems to me Nintendo's capitalizing on just what else you can do with the medium, even if they aren't inherently games.

They're doing it wrong :/

I mean like, it's hard to say if there's any inherent artistic merit in something like Dwarf Fortress or Crusader Kings or Simcity 4, but they ARE thought-provoking world-simulators. Or something like that.

The other problem with the "games as art" movement is that there is a certain degree of validation wanted on the part of gamer's for their hobby, and that's a tad bit misguided.

Isn't making a videogame artistic just for the sake of making it artistic missing the point of art?

Also, I think art is a means. Not an end.

Also, I think that assuming video games should be art is sort of narrowminded and excludes the other things they COULD be.

and choices are the core of a deep game.

Yeah but JRPGs are pretty low on choice most of the time anyway, really.

I want to see Chris' body fall apart even when he doesn't die.

It's like this: take the underlying concept behind Anacreon: The Reconstruction -- that being the fight against entropy -- and combine it with a corruption system like in ADOM. The further you get in the game, the more the zombie virus starts affecting you. You can stave it off with drugs, but ultimately you're on borrowed time and you need to find other ways of keeping yourself together.

Actually, that'd probably end up like Robinson's Requiem. Nevermind.

Not an RPG, but I DID by a Jaguar just to play... nah, too easy. Not going there.

In all seriousness, I'm not buying a new console till they get down to around 100 dollars or whatever. In the PAST, I went playstation, because the N64 didn't have much in terms of RPGs in general and the Gamecube didn't get some till later on (Granted, I... bought a Gamecube. Looking back, I'm not really sure why, even though I like it rather much. My first game for that was Animal Crossing and no idea what else I got ever that. Probably Skies of Arcadia or something).

"Kid Learns to Snipe with Arcade Game", with a single sentence about Silent Scope and how he only played it once in his life. :P

What can I say, that game's effective.

Europa Universalis 3:

I'm totally making Novgorod awesome. I have five traders in every center of trade (Including Timurid and Golden Horde CoTs. I WOULDN'T be doing this normally but I got into a war with Muscovy). Got a core on Nizny-Novgorod for some reason so I got a Casus Belli on Muscovy. Took Nizny-Novgorod, Orel, and Moscow, beat up one of their armies, and forced them to cede Orel and Nizny-Novgorod before some hugedamn army got to my dudes. Later, Yaroslavl and Tver went to war. I took over all of Tver and forced them to be my vassal. I didn't want to annex them as that would raise my Badboy score which is bad (especially if I end up trying to make Russia).

Also! Teutonic Order is at war with Riga and Bohemia and their army is deplete a bit, so I might try to fund rebellion in Pskov again. It might work while they're distracted. This depends on me getting a spy and Teutonics still being at war after I pay off one of my loans.

Strange Adventures in Infinite Space, anyone?

Personally, though, I prefer a game with an overarching campaign with lots of short quests/missions, instead of the game itself being very short. Sort of like Puzzle Quest or whatevers.

I think my other point is that Square's position as some sort of graphical wunderkind is a bit overstated.

Well, I guess I shouldn't have said ALL fans will be dissapointed by a sequel to a game they loved. I was more presenting a model as to my interpretation as to why.

But uh... seriously, if you haven't tried Fallout 1 yet, give it a shot. You MIGHT like it better. It's substantially easier (or at least more rational. Giant rats shouldn't kill you. Giant mutants should. A group of raiders might. It doesn't throw mobs of geckoes at you, though... Oh god Fallout 2 was tedious -_-) and the encounters are generally a lot more interesting.
