What do you guys think of the last few seasons of South Park compared to the rest of the seasons?

A new game about a politician helping their city
Kickstarter
Steam greenlight

I love depressing shit like this.

A lot of people harp on the drawing mechanic because it "takes too much time" even though drawing is only necessary about once or twice every few battles.
It's a solid game, although it's with FF9 and Legend of Dragoon in terms of games that made me get stuck on the third disc and never finish it, then my memory card goes bad, this happened twice with Dragoon.
I like the setting, being relatively modern but with some sci-fi added in.

- I hate facebook/twitter because they're unintuitive and pointless, I have a cell phone but rarely use it as anything but as a watch, and I'm 23
- I buy most games physically if possible, assuming it had a physical release in its original country, and if it's localized digital only, I'll import it
- One of the reasons I like physical things is uniformity in box art:

http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/3/33688/951303-dds2b_front.jpg
- I don't do PC games physically, just digital because they have such an inconsistent package design depending on the companies behind them
- Similarly anything old that's in a flimsy and/or bulky box like N64, Genesis, GBA, Atari, S/NES, etc is gonna be digital only
- Limited editions maaaaaybe rarely if something about it is intriguing
- I'd probably buy books digitally if I had a kindle or something similar
- It's too bad digital sales not on steam seem to be really rare since publishers are so stingy with their pricing on stuff like PSN
- I only get movies physically right now, but I hope companies will stop putting that ugly "blu-ray+dvd+digital+ultraviolet" thing on the top of boxes
- I also hate digipacks because most movies are released in keep cases but some are only in digipacks so those stick out
- It'd be nice for everything to be in jewel cases to save space, but it's pretty weird that a lot of 1 disc PS1 games were released with big jewel cases as if they had 4 discs (read it was because they sometimes have two manuals even though most of them don't)
- Music would be digital if I had a thing besides a laptop that could play music at work, so I only do that with youtube at home
- I hate that most books are so not-uniformly sized, as in height of the spine like video games are
- This is a clusterfuck

Play them simultaneously, they fit so well.

I'm probably the only person that didn't get it, but about THAT game people kept telling Rob to talk about in the FF15 demo stream; what game?
37  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast (Random Encounter) Thread on: February 18, 2015, 01:56:45 AM
I heard you point that out after posting it, but yeah I feel similarly, it's a handheld or portable.
Also to answer Rob's thing about a game he should be playing with changing into a persona and Digital Devil Saga etc: Shadow Hearts 1 and 2 say hi.
edit: Also also, an interesting interview to add perspective.

Dankest Dungeon is actually a thing, and it's a demake of Darkest Dungeon.

The award for longest game title (probably) goes to this game or this game, not including DLC.

If they're smart, they'd give Link only a few rare (if any) lines, but they'll probably make him a chatterbox.
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast (Random Encounter) Thread on: January 21, 2015, 11:24:23 PM
I guess the Link in the new Zelda could be androgynous to let people decide Link's gender, and they won't confirm an official gender.
It'd give people a thing to talk about and bring attention to the series.
42  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Approaching DLC. Advice/Help please. on: January 14, 2015, 01:14:20 AM
You could maybe try going by the dates they were released?

...right, that website's not confusing as all get out to comprehend.

I am curious quite a bit here...but...

-What IS this? What genre? What age range? What mechanics? What...anything?
-Is it finished or just a prototype/demo-prologue? (I keep seeing conflicting answers)
-...why are people so lazy and endlessly use Nordic references for fictional names? That stopped being tolerable a millennia ago.

In a world so cyber and punk it makes Cyberpunk 2077 look like Steampunk 1877...
You're a bartender, and your sidekick is a talking corgi (named Killer) and also your bouncer. The gameplay involves fast paced drink serving action.

Wonderful 101 has co-op, and Bayonetta 2 has multiplayer something, but maybe not co-op.
edit: Trine 2 and Pikmin 3 also have co-op.

Xillia 2 in 2012, which makes the context about yearly releases false.

It depends as here in NA the yearly release has been true since the 'year of tales' was announced.

While true they made no developmental changes with the western releases. Tales of Graces, released in 2009, was the last mothership title before 2011's Tales of Xillia. Thus the comparison to an annualized series like Assassin's Creed is false or unfair.
Sorry for not being clearer on that.

I think the idea may be that with the studio constantly pushing out something major every year, it takes development's attention away from the next big thing that isn't a port.

But anyway, for Rob: play SH2 or you're doing yourself a disservice, then play SH1 and be amazed by the improvements made between them.
SH2 (iirc, besides the director's cut) doesn't have any superbosses that involve min-maxing or exploiting the mechanics to extreme measures, and the twists at the end are pretty damn good/original.
The difficulty is generally right around the level of being challenging but you should be able to scrape by and barely get out alive.
And the only things I imagine you may not like so much about it are the Judgment Ring and dungeon linearity, but they were like that in SH1 so if you didn't have a problem with it then, you should be okay now.
Play it.
