Honestly, it was probably the narrative that kept me going through it. Yeah, near the end there does start to become an element of trying to collect all the best loot but ultimately there isn't really anything satisfying about the gameplay. Quite the opposite, really, as most of the time it starts to just turn into annoyingly trying to hurry up and take down a bunch of damage sponges so you can move on to the next group of damage sponges. Some of the bosses were kind of fun, but again the second half of the game just does everything it can to wear you down. My strategy for the final boss ended up being getting to a level where it's first form couldn't really hurt me and then just filling my inventory with healing items for the second form and wailing on it until it died, with no regard for trying to avoid counter attacks.

Probably not the answer you were hoping for, I realize, but I did want to be honest despite my love for the game as a whole.

Nah, perfect answer really.

I'll still likely play it, now I just have a better idea of where to squeeze it into my agenda. I appreciate the input immensely. Picking this up for a top-down slayer fix would have a proved a let down. Now I know what I am in for. Often times its not that games aren't bad per se, I just play them hoping for one thing and end up with another experience entirely. Thanks man.

I know you aren't really into sexualized games, but since you mentioned liking attacks feeling like the impact enemies.
Plus with the camera zoomed out a bit and all the crazy stuff happening onscreen at times, the sexualization is hard to notice, coupled with being able to customize characters so they're fully clothed.
And if you're turned off ultraviolence, the color of blood can be changed too.

It looks like the one boxart I don't really like is winning so far. :c

It sucks that I was sick while watching this so my attention was divided between my pain in the ass headache and watching the awesome season finale going on right in front of me.

None of these are really new new but I don't care:

The Daily Show - I wish that Jordan Klepper had gotten to replace Jon Stewart, because as a correspondent he seems like he has such a perfect dim witted  personality to play a character similar to Stephen Colbert's except maybe not right wing.
Trevor Noah's alright, but it seemed like I hadn't heard of him and suddenly he was taking over, even though he was supposedly only around a few months.

Rick and Morty - S2E6 The Ricks Must Be Crazy was the highlight of this season for me, unless the finale tops it. Peace among worlds

South Park - S19E2 Where my Country Gone? set a really high bar last week for the rest of the season, it's beautiful and it may be a classic especially with several moments like this nugget of gold.
Episode 3 was pretty damn good last night too.

On a similar note, you have an article mentioning Danganronpa 3 is on PS3, but according to the trailer it's on PS4.

End credits of Xenosaga 3, and the party leaving Michtam.

Do you guys think Tri Force Heroes looks like it may have depth perception issues?
Particularly the part at 3:07ish.

Yeah, probably, since ideally I'd like to do everything that can be done and it just feels too repetitive/easy by the end.
I'm able to do it in a lot of games, but I really like to pointlessly create chaos (namely in Red Dead Redemption) by randomly killing people and deal with the cops.

I didn't see a thread for this, but I just found some realllyyyyy cool shit, so I figured we should have a thread for cool shit like this.
Credit for the f-art joke goes to Dice.

I'm almost done with the demo and I agree with Stephen's preview, but one concern for me is that imperial soldiers appear really often and so far 95% of the time they're piss easy but one time (at level 30ish) they really screwed my party up because they kept committing suicide and I'd get KO'd, then revived, and probably 2~3 seconds later I'm at 0 hp again.

-- Final Fantasy 7 should not be remade.

I will never understand this sentiment.

"I do not think a remake of FFVII will be enjoyable or surpass the original." Sure.

"I think Square Enix will lose money on an FFVII remake." You're probably wrong, but feel free to hold the opinion.

"FFVII SHOULD not be remade." -- okay, so, passive sentence structure first of all. By what standard are judgment can you possibly be using the almighty S-word "Should"? Square Enix should not do a remake ... why? When their remakes consistently get them money and introduce a new generation to games of old?

Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who is so curmudgeonly as to say that a remake of FFVII *ruins* the original in any way shape or form is living in an alternate universe. The original still exists. On like, every platform available. Go play it.

And since the "remake will ruin my love of FFVII" argument is made invalid, there's almost nothing left with which to use the word "should." I'd honestly argue the only argument left is the profit argument, and there, I think most people would agree, S-E is *going* to profit on an FFVII remake. Unless they throw some ungodly sum of money into the dev, which I don't think they will. They are building fresh off of FFXV, they'll have plenty of engine/system stuff worked out in advance, and I suspect they'll have artists that are aching to rebuild Midgar, Nibelheim, Northern Crater, etc. And if they choose to include all seven Weapons in the remake (through some retconning), enemy designers will have a field day with that.

So, even if you hate the remake or have no intention of buying it, the statement "it SHOULD not be remade" still makes *no* sense to me, at all, whatsoever.

I'd like if remakes were only made if the original game had a passionate development team and something about the game fucked up, so give them a second chance to make it right

I really don't get the argument that it's "introducing a new generation" to an old game, because again, it's already available on a bunch of platforms and for cheaper than the remake will be at full price.

You misspelled Mark Knopfler, but then again I don't get the love for Jimi Hemdrix.

Quote from: MeshGearFox
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is extremely repetitive and boring.
Ooooo, you did not just diss ETS2, that shit's my jam.

As for a serious opinion (on an unpopular game) I think Onechanbara (particularly Z2 right now) is genuinely fun/not repetitive and the fanservice is barely noticeable especially if a bunch of enemies are onscreen.

I just read that The Bridge (FX) was cancelled, and I hadn't seen any of it but I'd read good things about it.

Fire Bringer?
I got this about a year ago for dirt cheap at a bookshop, and it's pretty highly rated on goodreads.
