This just reminds me that Australian Club Nintendo is embarrassingly awful.

We don't get games. We get sticky notes, folders, and ringtones. >.>

I'm curious how TOX2 disappointed you, actually.
I know it was the recycling that really put a damper in my end-reactions (I was fine WHILE I was playing, but felt pretty jilted afterwards).

That was probably the biggest factor for me. I enjoyed the new areas, but felt completely ripped off by how much content was recycled. Obviously, since there wasn't much time between the two, it's not surprising, but it is disappointing. The original cast also felt unnecessary; they get next to no development outside of re-meeting them where we find out what they've been up to between the two games. The dungeons were really bland too, though no worse than Xillia 1 (except I'd already done them before :P).

That said, I liked the dark "bad" ending, and I was quite fond of Ludger and Elle. The battle system was slightly better than Xillia 1, but I'm still sour they didn't stick with a more Graces-style system.

Xillia 1 was a disappointment, as was Xillia 2 in different ways. I really, really want Zestiria to be good, but I'd be nervous about picking it up on Day 1. I don't want to blow my money on another meh game.

We've noticed this too. We're currently working out how to resolve it. Will hopefully be fixed very soon.

Weirdly enough, I just did too, Neal!

I enjoyed it, but found the story too simple, even for a kids movie and I didn't really like any of the chatracters. Though I appreciated the

real life aspect towards the end.

Finally made it to World 6 in Four Swords Adventures on Gamecube. It's taken me nearly two years to get this far. I pretty much loathe this game; it's horrible and I wish I didn't feel like I had to beat it. >.>

Actually, it's today here and yesterday in America. ;)

I post news from the future to the past, since all dates on the site are North American!
24  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Site / Re: Specifying regions in news articles on: December 08, 2014, 05:58:45 AM
I agree! Though I think we do this mostly.

I'm Australian, and I proof and post almost every news article that goes up on the site. I generally do try to keep an eye on it, but some do slip past me. Also, unfortunately, we often are only given a NA release date when we get sent press releases/research info, so information for other regions just isn't available. I suspect there have been some articles though where, when we only have a NA date, we don't specify a region.

We've actually made a concerted effort over the past year or so to include more dates for other regions. 2+ years ago, it was pretty much exclusively NA dates posted. We'll continue to try and up our game! Thanks for the feedback, Maxx.

Edit - Oh, to clarify: Getting release dates for regions other than Europe/NA is pretty much unheard of. So, when I'm saying we "already to this mostly" they're what I'm talking about. Though Europe and Oceania tend to share release dates.

I've always been very confused by the great features they've chucked out over the years. Pretty much every Pokemon game seems to be two steps forward, one step back - it's incredibly confusing. I bet we'll lose Soaring and the DexNav in the next games, which is a shame.

It's doable without TLJ, but not advisable if you have the option/like 90s adventure games.
27  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread. on: November 07, 2014, 12:55:36 AM
Definitely. TLJ has one of the best protagonists in adventure games and tells a great story. It also makes the emotional impact of certain events in Dreamfall WAY more intense.
28  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread. on: November 06, 2014, 03:46:58 PM
I'm pondering playing The Longest Journey, but have seen some people recommend just skipping it and playing Dreamfall: TLJ. What do you guys think?

I played Dreamfall first, just because I was much younger at the time and couldn't get my hands on a copy of TLJ. You can definitely do it, but you miss out on a lot of the emotional context if you skip the first one. There's one stupid item combination puzzle early on in the first one, but otherwise I don't remember it being too hard. That said, it feels ancient compared to the updated controls and graphics of Dreamfall.

Max: Free or paid?

If you're happy to throw a few dollars around, I'd recommend:

- Kingdom Rush & Kingdom Rush Frontiers: Fun tower defence titles with loads to do (optional extra missions, difficulties) and require a bit of brain power. Awesome production values, also.

- Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery: An unusual adventure game that is combat-lite and thought-provoking. Not for everyone, but I loved it.

- Joe Dever's Lone Wolf: More expensive, and it does get frustrating at times, but a fun gamebook/RPG that I've definitely enjoyed. Plenty to do and well-written.

- Aything made by Kairosoft. Game Dev Story is the cheaptest and one of the best. Fun and addictive strategy/simulation games.

- Rebuild: A post-apocalyptic zombie strategy game where you build up the fortifications of survivors and try to escape/defeat zombies/other optional endings. Strategy.

I've also heard good things about, but have not played Chaos Rings. Also, FF IV, V and VI are on there if you can get past the graphics.

Agreed. The trailer reminded me just how creepy that game is.
