By the way, I would absolutely play a game of Clue reskinned with the characters, items/weapons, and setting of 999.

Lotus, with the frozen chicken, in the laboratory!

Speaking of Divine Divinity, I'd also recommend Divinity II Director's Cut. It takes a while to really get rolling, but even the beginning bit is fun in it's own right. The character customization is there, though quite a bit limited, but you'll find plenty of equally good gear to customize your look with. The character development system also has a ton of freedom.

In reference to your comments about the story, are you referring to both games, because I enjoyed both the writing and story in the first game. It wasn't a literary masterpiece, but it was more enjoyable than what I can usually expect in a JRPG, and not the worst story in the Final Fantasy series, either.

Sorry, but adding a personal insult to people who don't agree with your opinion seems a bit opposite your criticisms of Yggdrasil's attitude Dice.

I don't judge anyone who likes FFXIII. Though I have a feeling they judge me plenty for not liking it. :P

Considering my hatred of hypocrisy, if I judged anyone for their tastes in video games I think I would have been lynched by now.

Even though this thread is way off topic, I would like to say something about why I like FFXIII since Dice brought it up.

I see it less as an RPG and more as it's own beast. The "dungeons" are more like stages in a platformer or FPS with RPG elements and all the post-game elements the extra challenge missions or whatever. This way the developers could design each encounter to be less of a random annoyance and more of an obstacle to get past. Each battle brought a new set of challenges and were tailored to be increasingly more difficult as you made your way through that particular area and throughout the game as a whole.

In summary, and said much better by other people on the Internet, I thought FFXIII was a below average Final Fantasy, but a fantastic game.

true ending
Itrue ending.

*sigh* wut?

I already have Lightning Returns to contend with next month, I don't want to play yet another game I have to carefully finagle my way through in order to make sure I do things correctly so I only have to play through it once. This combined with my obsession to experience everything a game has to offer is why my backlog is so huge.

Klyde, could be how much you're stressing yourself out over the game. Could be that you're very slightly susceptible to vertigo (hence reading in cars, which is the easiest way to experience vertigo) and stress makes anyone more susceptible to all kinds of nasty things.

Combine the two and whamo, vertigo while playing a game that's stressing you out.

Well, the KanColle event just ended.  I cleared the event and got the basic rewards a while ago but over the last few days I had been intensely farming the event maps trying to get some rare drops before the event ended.  The fruits of my labor?  Nothing.  Nada.  Zilch.  OK, I got some rare drops but they were all rare drops I already had...I didn't get a single ship I was looking for.  Despite playing it pretty much all day everyday for the last few days...

When I look back on the amount of time I wasted doing this shit...I have to wonder why I'm playing this silly game...

If you feel like you're becoming addicted, and you're only playing to "keep up" rather than getting any real enjoyment out of it, I recommend stopping cold turkey. I had to do that with Valkyrie Crusade and I haven't regretted it since. Every once in a while I open the app to see what's going on at the time, might participate in a battle or two and then not touch it again for two or three weeks.

Also, jeebus. I was gone for 3 hours and two pages are added to the Game Journal!

I really don't want to worry about what ending I get. I just want to play the game, and get what I get. Does it somehow affect the sequel? Does VLR play differently if I get the "true" ending? I'm usually not in the business of caring about such things.



Well, there are really only 3 of the 6 endings that bother answering any questions about the plot of the game. So I recommend at least playing until you get the Safe or Coffin ending (I believe the true ending requires you to get both those endings anyway.... technically)

Just had the most awesome first run of Pharos Sirius. We have a little trouble with the first boss, none with the second and third, and lose a couple of times on Siren. Last try everything goes to hell with her at about a quarter of her health. We all keep fighting hard but end up with 3 out of 4 party members dead. I'm the only one left alive and have less than 500hp. Siren only has a sliver of health left but there are four adds. In one last desperate attempt I put up Featherfoot and Keen Flurry and focus everything on Siren. I end up bringing her down with what I can only imagine being less than 100 hp left. Mind you nobody actually bothered to give me a commendation for that, but she did give me the lvl 60 MNK belt. And considering I was still wearing a lvl 48 belt, I'll consider that more than an appropriate victory.

good news, I actually don't have work on a quiz day. Bad news, I barely remember anything about the game besides the plot.

I powered through the game so quickly that I doubt anything really stuck.

I'm with Prism. I don't really care that an MMO got called Game of the Year, but I fully believe that FFXIV doesn't really deserve the title. I think how much it has improved over it's first iteration has clouded people's perception on the actual quality of the game (which is good but not great). However, I can't agree on Ni No Kuni being game of the year either, because I found the overall structure of the game to be infuriating.

I installed Fortune Summoners today because I love checking out games with really mixed reviews. I, appropriately enough, have mixed feelings about it so far. The combat controls are pretty clunky and the combat is really unbalanced (spells one-shot everything, sword has no range whatsoever). But I always like to see more 2D games that aren't "Retro Pixel Action 2000" or "Black Silhouette Over Bleak Background Platformer #7355". Plus the characters all have their own unique charm without being overly cliche. I'm going to stick with it for a while and hope the combat improves with more abilities and party members.

I need some advice on an affordable but decent PC gamepad. Mine is starting to break.

Anybody know about Starbound? Well the game is great even though it's basically in Alpha. So I'm throwing in a Steam key for the winner of this week's quiz. We can just call it compensation for the holiday delays. ^__^

I actually just bought it over the holidays and I'll attest to how great it is. Basically it's a fully realized Terraria with a lot more to do.
