1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFX/X-2 HD-2 (i.e. PS4 ver) on: March 03, 2015, 08:02:05 AM
2 remakes of FFX
2 sequels to FFXIII
A sequel to FFXII (kind of)
2 indirect sequels to FFTactics.
A remake of Tactics Ogre.
I've lost count of the remakes/re-releases of FFIV
Remakes of FFV and FFVI for IOS (and android now).
FFXIV failed and was hit with a phoenix down (Fenix Down if you're really bored), now being quite the great MMO.


For fucks sake how many more fucking games need to be redone before we get FFXV?

There's also the various FFs I-II releases (Origins, the WSC ones, Dawn of Souls, the Mobile ports, Anniversary Edition, the iOS and Android ports), the FF III DS remake and subsequent releases (DS, PSP, iOS and Android), FFIV has the Japanese original, the FFII USA Easy Type, the Chronicles port, the WSC one that the GBA one was ported from (ATB bug and all), the full-on DS remake, the PSP remaster, every Mobile/iOS/Android platform under the rising sun, and more. Also FFIV sequels Interlude and The Wonder After Years and the latters various ports from Mobile to WiiWare to being part of the PSP remaster. FFs V & VI have their Anthology and GBA ports as well as the iOS/Android demakes (also V has that silly Legend of the Crystal anime sequel). FFVII's PC port is now on Steam. Also the entire FFVII compilation including like 5 versions of Advent Children, that Before Crisis mobile phone game nobody remembers, the ehh-ness that is the PSP's Crisis Core and the disasterriffic Dirge of Cerberus. FFVIII has its PC port on Steam too (I think; I don't actually recall since I hardly use Steam since that requires money I'd rather spend on games I could be playing 15 years from now). On top of FFX's International Version, it also has X-2 and its International Version, plus now two different HD versions (and also the utterly bizarre thing that is FFX-2.5). FFT has it's own War of the Lions remake and the 2 TA games that have almost nothing to do with FFT, plus FFXII which has its own IZJS is also loosely tied to FFT but also has Reverent Wings for a sequel. The FFXIII trilogy also has Type-0 (because unfortunately Type-0's plot ties into the XIII trilogy in the most bizarre and hamstrung way possible), which is getting its HD version. FFXI is still getting expansions despite being somewhat redundant now that FFXIV is a thing (this time). And then there's all the Crystal Chronicles bullshit, starting with the GameCube game, followed by the two DS games and two Wii games (one of both of these were the exact same game with cross console play which meant that the Wii version looked like ass for no goddamn reason), along with the two WiiWare minigames (and nothing else since). Also Mystic Quest (or whatever PAL land called it), the two (and soon to be three) Dissida games, and literally all the rest.

Also FFIX which has yet to see anything at all beyond its original PSX release (which is likely a blessing).

I think he was referring to remakes and re-releases since the release of FFXIV

Going back to playing through Guided Fate Paradox so that I can hopefully be ready for Awakened Fate Ultimatum in two weeks. I have a simple question for anyone who's played this: Is it a particularly long game, or just one of those games that lets you get WAY more powerful than you need to be? I ask because I'm only on chapter 4, but the rate at which I'm filling up the Divinogram or whatever it's called makes it seem like I haven't even put a dent in this game.

1. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix
2. Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix
3. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance

So.... yeah. This has been my year so far. Sooo much Kingdom Hearts that I'm kind of worn out on the franchise for the time being. But you can't say I haven't prepared myself for KH3. That being said, while I'm a bit worn out on the games themselves, I'm in more of a mood than ever to talk about the games and the overall plot. I love talking about Kingdom Hearts. People say the plot is convoluted, and after KH3D I kind of have to agree, but I enjoy convoluted plots, and KH is ripe for theorizing and discussing minor details.

That being said, what's the deal with Birth by Sleep Part Two? I remember hearing about it a couple of years ago, but I didn't realize there was a teaser for it at the end of BBS Final Mix. Was the project axed and the plot just integrated into KH3D and KH3?

Saw last year's Godzilla last night. As anyone who's paid attention to my other posts in this thread, I'm no critic. So I'll just say I enjoyed it more than the initial reviews made me think I would.

I did have to laugh at the end when the fight was over and the power came back on. Like, half of the city is completely in ruins and yet 90% of what's left still has power? Must be nice.

Well if you are finishing the ice cream games, might as well just go for 100% now. Only "hard" things you'll be missing after completing that are the optional bosses, and those are totally doable.

Not so worried about difficulty of getting 100%. But getting each character enough medals for the Arena exclusive commands (since that's over 9,999) as well as finishing the command boards is a bit more time consuming than I'm currently in the mood for.

I get to go to work frustrated today thanks to Birth by Sleep's Ice Cream Beat mini-game, the worst rhythm game known to man as far as I'm concerned. Worst part is while I had a bit of trouble with Terra, I had no trouble at all with Ventus, but now I can barely even get past the beginner level of Destiny Islands with Aqua.

I hate that stage so much. The slow speed combined with the weird timing for correct button presses makes rapid sequences almost impossible to time correctly. Either that or the game just sometimes decides not to register a button press or two during those parts, which I'm partially convinced of.
Unless you are trophy hunting for a complete journal with all characters, you really don't need to do that with all three characters.

Just wanted to get it out of the way in case I do decide to come back later and go for 100%

Honestly, besides the adorable aesthetic, everything about Disney World (or whatever it's called in-game) is awful.  I'm pretty sure Mario Kart for the SNES was more intuitive than that hack racing game in there.  The rhythm game is about as responsive as your thumb turning into a full concrete brick and trying to time it right.
I dunno, I actually like the racing game. I mean going through all the courses on all three characters is painful because of how repetitive it is (especially since you have to do every course twice if you want to 100% due to Mirage Arena), but the racing itself isn't too bad if you know the courses. The only "bad" part is that the AI rubberband's to you so that no matter how amazing you are doing or how many pits you knock the AI into, they will still catch up miraculously in lap 4 or 5.

Actually, it's even more hilarious than that! I noticed this morning that the AI totally rubberbands on laps 1-4, then if you were running a decent race up to that point, they all just hang back and let you win on lap 5.

Aww man, that is really sad news.

I hope this doesn't sound insensitive, but I kind of hope the recording for KH3 was finished. Nobody can replace Nimoy as Master Xehanort.

^ But then your eyes are still playing tricks on you. The colors are blue and gold. The illusion is that some people will see blue and black, and others will see white and gold, but it's almost impossible to register it as blue and gold.

I just noticed that some of the trees outside my window have lower branches that naturally bend at perfect 90 degree angles and it's freaking me out.
11  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Most Favourite Gaming Moments~! on: February 26, 2015, 07:03:21 PM
Glad this thread found it's way back up, because I just encountered a really subtle moment from Persona 4 I had completely forgotten about.

It's the moment when the NPC girl by the library mentions that "Senpai" is actually another girl. It's just mentioned so casually--one day she just happens to use a pronoun when describing her--and it both is and isn't done to illicit a reaction. I don't know what I'm saying, but it does happen to make me smile. Not only did they give a pointless NPC's story a plot-twist but it's a really cute plot twist, too.

To be fair I sometimes eat paper, but only because when I finish a lollipop I have a habit of just chewing on the stick for a while.

^ My biggest concern with that (aside from the fact that the original aired almost 30 years ago) is that Alan Young will be like 3-4 years shy of a full hundo when they start producing this. I'm doubtful he'll be up to voicing a full-on series. Hopefully, the (likely) new voice actor will be faithful to Young's interpretation.
I'm not holding out any hope for the reboot in general, but hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

If Disney is good at one thing, it's finding voice actors to always keep their characters sounding the same. I'm sure the same will apply here.
14  Media / Game Journals / Re: Dice Plays FFIX on: February 26, 2015, 06:43:28 PM
I don't feel like finagling with quotes, so I apologize in advance for taking the easy way out here:

RE: Garnet & Zidane

I actually agree they make a much better couple than Tidus and Yuna. I'd go so far as to say I found the ending to FFIX more touching than the ending to FFX. I mean, they actually act like a couple. I don't think I remember once throughout FFX of Tidus and Yuna saying anything bad about the other, but Zidane and Garnet give each other shit all the time. Right up to the end with Garnet's love-taps for Zidane putting her through everything.

RE: Quina

I theorize that the Qu are a race of Gourmands because they reproduce through mitosis once they've eaten enough.

RE: Chocobo Hot & Cold

You know, Square Enix keeps saying they want to make more money in the mobile market. But...

Is there a mobile version of Tetra Master? No
Is there a mobile version of Triple Triad? No.
Is there my mobile dream game combining the Chocobo Mini-RPG from FF8 and FF9's Chocobo Hot & Cold? No. (seriously, how awesome would that be?)

My point is Square Enix has more of an opportunity to make money in the mobile market than just about anyone and they squander it with shit like All The Lamest.

...Also, frog catching can go to hell.

Played through the first two or three missions of Hyperdevotion Noire. I'm really liking it so far. It borrows a lot from Disgaea without being quite as complicated or challenging. At least not so far anyway, and considering I'm still stuck on chapter 1 of Disgaea DS, I'd say it's a pretty good feeling. Doing a lot of save-skimming with Sim Noire, though. I'm trying to make sure I always choose the correct option on every request to avoid missing anything.

Also, despite the title, Neptune still manages to steal the show. As usual, her English VA seems to have a lot of fun with the character. For instance, when changing elevations, instead of her usual "Jump!" or "Boingy!" sometimes she'll just shout "I'm a kanga-rooo!" and it makes me smile the way she says "Got me some LOOT!" when opening a chest.
