^ The fact we don't have a second Pokemon Snap or Puzzle League is a sin.  A SIIIN!!! D:

FF8's demo was the bee's knees.

I still think the fact the song was removed [likely] for its similarities to a popular 90s film is pretty damn funny

Final Fantasy XV's demo fails to strike the right chords with me.

Personally speaking, i find demos are a pretty rubbish experience in general, it's incomeplete, you're thrown into some random point of the game (often the 5~10% point in), features are cut out, items/setting carefully catered, etcetera, etcetera.

I'm sure the real deal will vastly improve the experience.... y'know, cuz it has to.  Or it'll be another Duke Nukem or whatever have with long-ass development time that didn't pay off.

Playing more Twilight Princess.  I love the Temple of Time dungeon -- it's weird.  Now doing The Good The Bad and the Link western sequence.

The only thing I'm slightly disappointed by, based on all of the information so far, is that on a world of so many insanely fantastical creatures, all of the intelligent races seem to be almost generically humanoid.

Actually, I always liked how Nopon were business people and often seen commuting with other humans.  I felt they were pretty even keel.

I quite like the dragons' designs.  For the most part, they look really unique and not like your typical dragons. 

Yeah, Sky and Dark taking the more 'typical route' (Red to some extent too, but with a funky 'gimmick'), but the Yellow and Green and Blue are just odd.  And I love it.

Ironically, I wasn't crazy about the dragon god design, mainly because it looked like a badass design....with a comically massive head.

Can't wait for more updates.

Oddly, my experience when I played felt slightly different when I was young.
Red Dragon gave me a hard time (didn't bring water innates), Yellow was easy, Water I barely remember (so easy?), Black I kept trying to steal from, Green left my party crippled....almost literally (freaking sprain).

I also remember being content with "perfectly average" duo of Norris and Viper during that time (subbing in an innate of whatever appropriate element).

I also (also) remember being really fixated on looking at the special item pictures.  They're beautifully illustrated and I always liked how "same but different" the treasures were from the dragons --- you could tell they're the same "group" of items for the same achievement (ie; beatin' dragon ass), but look almost nothing alike.  Certainly a fun task for the game was probably drawing up weird timey-wimey space-place type of items as well (The Frozen Flame being a fantastically captured oxymoron with a deep series connection).

Not that it really is that big a deal, for the sake of the review or otherwise, but I thought I'd point out something 'juicy' from the RPGFan review:

Quote
Their dialogue and worries change as time passes, and in the final few hours before the moon crashes, you see the sort of people they truly are, whether they be the brave guards who stay behind, knees shaking, or the tough sword instructor who actually decides to flee.

This is incorrect, he doesn't.  On the final hours you can find him hiding in the back (you cut up the painting thingy and there's an extra room)...
Code:
and scared out of his mind saying he doesn't want to die

It's a fantastic detail and makes the reactions of each citizen that much more varied and haunting.

Stephen's review was most helpful (one of the others I read was way too vague, the third focused way too much attention on the graphical aspect and the camera, which I understand are problems, but still I wanted to know about the gameplay, damnit) since he talked in detail about the learning curve, which, while different for everybody, is something I wish more reviewers would talk in detail about since it gives me an idea about how I'll perform in the game.

Honestly, and I'm not even trying to brown nose a site I devote a lot of time to, but the reviews here really are top notch.  Well worded, thorough, and generally fairly rated.  When I read an IGN review it feels like...kitschy website with mandatory review of awesome things.  RPGFan reviews 'feel' way better to read.

Can't wait for this.  I splurged for the CE, and my bad, because that shit is stuck at customs.  I think Square Enix hates Canada or something.

Oh, did they keep the Bump of Chicken song in or is something by like Green Day in there now? (I've tried to be going into this 'blind')

Do want.  May buy.  Is poor.  And backlogged.  Arrrggghhhh....
70  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 16, 2015, 02:12:03 AM
Do I buy Shallie or wait for inevitable 'Plus' version? : /

Plus, I've heard from a few fans that the ending is somewhat lackluster if this game was supposed to "finish" the Dusk trilogy (indeed hoping they go for a fourth game)

Damn, and there goes my hopes of tri-Ace never producing another console RPG.

Because their fate is directly tied into yours, and every game they make means your life becomes CURSED once again!!!! 

That must be the reason for such blatant schadenfreude, right?

There is a direct correlation between the success I'm having in life right now and the failure that tri-Ace is suffering from.

I guess we should also keep killing African rhinoceroses then.

Honest to god that stuff really upsets me.  I just wanna go vigilante on poachers. So... =/

A very particular MiiVerse message from a very peculiar Zelda character??

It looked a bit kiddie for my tastes, but cute (or buyable if the reviews were good).  But yeah, delay after delay I definitely forgot about it. :(

Inafune is busy with is Megaman Redux so I'm sure he'll be fine.
