I've been ill since Boxing Day. I feel like i've been sick every single year around this time, I can put my watch by it.

Also I want a nice burger. (to mirror Tomara's post)

It's like a change of genre. It's not like I'm being indignant and think FF7R should be turn-based because it started out turn-based, it's just that turn-based is the genre I like. I dislike action rpgs, they do nothing for me. If people didn't like RTS's or MOBA, people would understand. But not liking action games seems unfathonable. It's not just a relic of a time where system requirements might have dictated it by necessity. It's actually a truly enjoyable way to play a game to some people. :p

FFX/X-2 gave us the international versions of both games. FFXII would probably give us the Zodiac Job version. I actually *do* make it a point to ignore HD remakes unless I haven't played the game at all before or if the game contains new content I haven't experienced before.

Well, for Europeans it was the same game and plenty still bought and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. My eyesights so bad I can't really tell the difference in the HD remakes, but even I would be able to tell the difference in a FF7 remake. It's like apples and oranges really.

I hope the game is changed a ton. I'll buy every entry and probably enjoy it. Even if I don't, beats getting the same game with prettier graphics. If I wanted to play the same game, I'd play FFVII.

It's not the same though, is it?

How many of us here bought the FFX HD remaster, or have currently said they can't wait for the FFXII one. Those are much, much less drastic visual leaps than an FF7 remake would bring. It's not silly to actually want to see a beloved game get the love and polish a modern engine can bring it.

Why is everyone acting like it's worth nothing? I guess I don't understand.

I'm not that invested that I care a whole lot what happens to the FF7 remake, I wish it was being made to how I wished it was, but who doesn't. But I'm not the least bit shocked at the people who are upset about the drastic changes that are gonna happen in the remake. I mean, this is the only time it's going to happen. This    was the only chance people are gonna get for the FF7 remake - it's not gonna happen again, at least not any time soon. (I'm not specifically aiming this statement at Stephen, just a continuation of the thoughts I had while replying).

God, the amount of pessimism surrounding this game is sickening. 5 years ago, everyone and I mean EVERYONE would have wet their pants over this news. Nowadays it's just cool o hate on shit we like. Seriously, I can't fathom how people are having anything negative to say about this game that is in it's infantile stages of development. I shouldn't be surprised though, seeing as it's the norm for people who are content and happy to simply be happy and not say anything, but those who want to be negative can't shut the fuck up out about how it's a terror and an abomination and a travesty before it's even a fucking game. I get that we can all have opinions, but for fucks sake how about waiting til we have something more than spoken ideas and a pretty set of cinematic trailers to actually have a basis for an opinion?


I don't wanna play the game but I havn't said anything on the matter? :P Not just here anywhere really?

I see just as many being excited and "fuck the haters"-y about the game. Maybe you just see the negativity more because it's against what you think and thus stands out to you more? Also you can't really say people who dislike it are vocal about it because you don't know about the people who aren't vocal about it so it's kinda confirmation bias.

It's times like these that make me glad that apart from playing games, I follow none of the culture. I have no idea what any of you are talking about and I am very happy with this. :)

Jessica Jones is easily getting a ton of credit from me for being so willing to show 'ugly things'.  It's pretty committed to showing and talking about things that aren't always easy to show and talk about.

In addition to that, holy fuck, some of the deaths on the show are absolutely brutal.  Easily the worst (or best?) I can think of in any Marvel-related show/film.

Also, David Tennant is a really cool villain. :)

Personally, I will never be able to watch it. Krysten Ritter's face really bothers me. It's unsettling... I was very thankful her role in BB wasn't that big.

I like American Crime.

The characters are great.

Macaroni Cheese. Not the boxed kind though, that stuff makes me gag. The real deal. Al dente macaroni in an enriched white cheese sauce,  topped with grated chedder and put under the grill for a few minutes. Perfection. :)

Runner up - a bowl of heinz tomato soup with crusty baguette and butter.

I think I hit the comfort food brief pretty well. :p

I'm pretty sure you can pick up an oddish too, which while complete suck, does help against an all rock team.

Nah, you can't get Oddish til Cerulean City.

You're really just limited to Mankey or Nidoran.

You could also level up a Caterpie to a Buterfree and use Confusion. It's not strong, but it's not weak like the rest of the other non-Mankey/Nidoran options

I'm here to make a confession. I have a gambling problem. I am going to bed now. G'night gentle folk.

You came to the right board (no seriously, introduction threads in the Single Player RPGs board, while more visible than General Discussions, are fairly off topic and usually wind up here anyways; now watch as a mod decides to shove this onto the Single Player RPGs board just to spite me and confuse you).

That said, welcome aboard (or 14).

In general it's a no introduction threads allowed rule, but since he asked a question and I'm feeling magnanimous today, I'll allow it.
