So what do you think makes an RPG part of this genre?
thoughts:
Code:
I've noticed that RPGs generally tend to be meatier than anything else, even most open-world games, maybe because they have a lot of substance compared to regular action games or platformers and such.
Limiting the genre to needing progression of stats and/or skills seems like it would disqualify most visual novels and graphic adventures from coverage.
"You take on a role in every game you play."
Is role playing a thing in something like Tetris?

What confuses me is why Xseed decided to go with the title "Story of Seasons" when it is, in fact, The Lost Valley that has a story about the seasons. That seems to make an already complicated situation even more confusing.

Lost Valley was announced almost a week (iirc?) after Story of Seasons, so Xseed wouldn't have known not to do that.
@Maxximum: one of my friends that likes Harvest Moon didn't know about it until a few weeks I told them a few weeks after it started (and hates Call of Duty) may have only found out about it after getting Lost Valley because of the series' name on the box.

Crimson Sea 2 (off the top of my head) for $3, it's crazy amounts of fun.

I assume this is tied to the lore of the anime bearing the same name?? If so count me in. Even if it isn't the best, it is FAR too in line with my personal tastes to ignore.

Yep, an adaptation of the first game.
some links on this are nsfw
I just noticed Sting co-developed it.

Happy mask salesman, he can transform using masks and change his moveset.

It looks a little too cute for my taste.

I'm starting to wonder if games are wearing out the open world thing.

Most importantly, something was officially released in English regarding this so I guess that's some hope.

-I agree with a lot of that video, though I think it looks objectively good in the sense that a lot of old games would be considered beautiful at release but ugly if they were made recently.
-As for this review, the camera is pretty standard and works like it should; haven't had aaaany problems with sound mixing.
-The framerate is so so generally, and it never seems to slow down (much?) at the most important parts.
edit: also, people seem to exaggerate the amount of the vulgarity.

Ham Sandwich retrospective

I appreciate all of the sandwiches commonly offered by delis, but like a good number of sandwich fans I only knew about ham sandwiches from more complex offerings but when I discovered that there were other sandwiches I had to try them out, I did not know that I would embrace ham and turkey sandwiches and they became some of my favorite sandwiches of all time... This is a video on the basic ham sandwich.

And holy shit was that ever a run-on sentence.

No matter how I feel about pastrami on rye (I don't hate it...it's just my least favorite sandwich...that does not mean it's bad, though), I have to thank delis everywhere because if it were not for pastrami on rye I would never have discovered the basic ham sandwich.

Which is kind of weird when you think about it.

And reubens are friggin awesome.  Visit my youtube channel.

Ew, ham sandwiches.

Peanut Butter+Banana is clearly the best option in all situations.

You good sir are quite insane. The ham sandwich is the greatest sandwich in existence! Combining ham and swiss cheese is one the greatest inventions that mankind has ever made! To deny that is to deny the very essence of humanity! As such, you are clearly a lizard person as no one else would dare to deny their humanity to such an extent.

I hate ham

I found a new awesome reviewer.
And something no one else seems to have gotten is a glitch in chapter 3, the first time those spirits appear, for me the last one never came out even though it was on the minimap.

The face buttons (at least A) on the X360 controller seem to get stuck for a second until they're usable again, so mashing a button like A can be more of a pain than it should be.

Keep in mind that development on this started about 5 years ago.

I found a dungeon on gamespot's 404 page and it may be too entertaining for its own good.
