Dealing with people is a choice you make to engage with them. Owning a PC doesn't mean you have to deal with idiots. I reply here because it is a choice to engage with a thoughtful gaming community. The rest I dutifully ignore.

I love good video games on any platform they're available. (*'-')b I don't know why this is a debate.

stop with your logic, you

Difficulties are more based on your gear than a linear progression. If you're finding things too hard, you can bump it down. If they're too easy, bump it up. The higher difficulties offer more XP, gold, and better loot, so you always want to play on the highest you can manage. I'd say at least start on hard, because it isn't really very :)

I'd recommend beating the story mode once, and then switching to adventure mode (unlocked at completion), which is where the real awesomeness is at, post-storyline.

calendar.google.com is all the agenda I ever need, and it sends push notifications straight to my phone

I always push my own personal agendas. It's why I'm so charming and handsome.

Also I can see why you'd think we hate JRPGs. All that time spent talking about how much I love Persona Q, Kingdom Hearts, Type-0, Valkyria Chronicles, and our lengthy discussion of FFXV definitely give that impression.

I've been using the licensed Mario/Luigi pro controllers shaped like GameCube pads, and I've found them to be pretty great. We couldn't find an adapter, so this was an alternative, but now we're considering not even getting one because the controller is so good.

I'm torn. I want to tell you what you want to hear since you're listening to us, but I basically guarantee the Steam love ain't going anywhere.

Sorry!

Not necessarily the skits, but I definitely haven't had any interest in Tales casts in a while. I like Xillia's less with each passing day. They just don't do any of the effort to show why those characters should be together (or why they're interesting). I haven't found a Tales cast to be especially engaging since Vesperia. It's just getting a little too iterative and tropey, without any of the effort that used to be involved at building that cast up. It's okay to use tropes if you make me believe those characters would be together and have interesting things happen to them. Perfect example are Alvin and Jude having 'bro-moments' after battle: at no point in that game do they ever have anything approaching a buddy-buddy relationship moment, but the game just expects me to assume that they've become bros because reasons?

Versus all the banter and joking and small character moments in, say, Abyss, that establish Jade, Luke, and Guy's relationship building up to things like the 'you're weak, you're a hack, you're whack' victory quote. I believed that they'd come up wit hsomething dumb like that, because the game had done the legwork in actually establishing their relationships.

/rantover

yeah i hope there are small moments in FFXV

It's like I've said in other threads lately, it's the little moments like that that stick with me in RPG storylines.  Not the epic bombast, but the more "human" moments where the characters just kinda get to be themselves. 


This ^

It's what Tales games used to be good at doing, and what the ATEs were great about in FFIX.

And now to keep up with news regarding XV; At Jump Festa, XV will shown as video only and also will be part of Tabata's Active Time Report on a livestream (like it was said in the last report). The date for this is December 20th.

Sounds good, can't wait for more XV news. I'm really hoping they'll finally show us a town or city area. The open field and cave area from the TGS trailer was great, but
I really want to see a huge city area with lots of buildings and NPCs walking around.

Me too. I wanna see some life and some people-interaction.

I've begun to hate cinematic trailers; they're usually all flash.
The latest gameplay trailer was great, but I do love when developers then sorta ease into the 'other mechanics' or showing off the world.  Indeed, yeah, I wanna see the "other stuff" next!  Shops! Cities! Fields! Menu?!

Minigames!

Are we really arguing about the physical capabilities of these characters based on their designs?

I'm pretty sure Wakka couldn't murder you forever with a blitzball. Pretty sure getting hit by a megaphone wouldn't kill you. Pretty sure a sword with the heft and weight of the Buster Sword would definitely not be able to be lifted or used by Cloud's (Barret's words) scrawny ass. Physical properties of characters, ESPECIALLY in JRPGs, have negative bearing on what they are actually capable of doing.

I'm no fan of Lightning, but if we're going to dock points on her for being 'not physically intimidating,' we maybe want want to consider literally every non-token-big character in a JRPG ever. Except that we never bring up how physically imposing the dude heroes are-- only Lightning gets to be subject to a wholly different category of scrutiny? Horse shit double standard. She's a lame character, but not for that reason.

Also everything Dice said. Korra is a fantastic example, because she looks like someone with her training would. And she's awesome, but for many more reasons than that.

Yeah I don't think Ygg was commenting on your dislike of Lightning.
