I've actually played VIII, and the combination of higher definition Toriyama designs (whose art I really dislike) and the same old series combat sort of exacerbated my problems. I really only enjoyed the world map, truthfully. The only one I somewhat enjoyed was IX, and from what I understand many people hated that one, hah!

I am just not generally a fan of the hyper traditional turn-based RPG anymore, and never enjoyed the tone of them back in the day. As Rob and Co used to say, Stephen hates whimsy. Also generally speaking, I'm no longer interested in iterative "done-well-but-done-before"  game play. With my gaming time ever decreasing, I tend more towards unique experiences or excellent stories.

That said, I can totally understand why people enjoy them!

Why can't they just bring back SatAM and those characters? CHARACTER DEPTH?! NO IMPOSSIBLE

Thanks for your effort putting this up, man.

Well, like I said, my intention is not to poo poo on your project, and I appreciate you dropping by to weigh in-- like I said, I appreciate your openness when developing, and I especially appreciate you clarifying regarding the classic games mentioned. As I mentioned, I do hope you guys see success, because I love sci-fi.

It sounds like you have the right idea, and while I admit I haven't been a fan of you all's past games, as I mentioned, I'm certainly hoping this is the one that brings me over. Having backed the project for the soundtrack, I'll find out one way or the other ;) haha.

I love that comic and am super excited for this game. I'm also very glad they set their stretch goals at realistic levels rather than the more appealing but far too idealistic levels many other KS campaigns do.

I'm glad you guys have confidence. Pat, I appreciate your argument, but I disagree that it seems like "the real deal." It seems like the same deal as before, only with a Sega CD-inspired presentation.

I respect that you're excited, but they've been throwing around names on Twitter for weeks, in addition to the ones listed. I'm really happy for you all, and again, I hope they have tons of success and will even play the game if it's great, but it changes nothing about my skepticism.

I've never really liked their games. Balance is a fine art, and all their games become SUPER repetitive towards the end, with very little (if any) variation in tactics necessary for battles.

I like the art design in this one, and I'm a mega sucker for sci-fi, but I'm also A) sick of the nostalgia gaming trend and B) skeptical of them listing basically every well-beloved 16/32-bit JRPG as an inspiration.

Still, I wish them well. Boyd is, if nothing else, very open with his fans, and I respect that. If this turns out a little more inspired than their last few games, I'll probably check it out. If nothing else, Imma be buyin' that HyperDuck OST :)

The changes really seem to come from fan feedback.

And if that's the case, then is a good thing that part of Nintendo is getting their hands our their ears for once.

Purists will disagree, but I do think that continuing a "traditional" approach will kill the series.

actually, just so everyone knows we are still alive:

The podcast is definitely coming this week. I've been swamped with graduate work, applications to work, piano lessons, and regular job work-- could I have taken the time I spend after relaxing with FFXIV and finished the show? Probably yes, but I didn't want to force editing when I wasn't feeling it, because why release a lackluster show?

so, you'll definitely see the episode this week, and we are already planning the next. FEAR NOT! My apologies to everyone for the delay.

Yeah I'm referring to the consistent "Don't kill the lambs nub" shouting in northern thanalan during Dark Devices. It's insane that people get upset by this and even moreso that it's expected that 50+ people not in a party during it are expected to wait around while the 3 parties rake in their exp.

Then get in a party or go do a faster FATE. Those of us in a party don't want to stand around grinding FATEs for an extra 45 minutes because of the 50 people who just wanted to bounce in were in such a rush to GET IN AND GET OUT. Why's their time more important than the people in a group? Here's what you do-- if you're in a hurry, go do another FATE. Let the people (like me) who want to get XP doing Dark Devices get our XP. You get done faster, we get our XP-- everyone wins, and no one has to bitch about it!

You're being willfully ignorant saying "it's insane that people get upset" that you rob them of a chance to get 100k xp instead of, like, 10k. Sounds to me like it's insane that people don't understand why people would want 100k XP instead of 10-20.

Furthermore, fuck the FC people that were hiding in the corner killing the lambs immediately and then tele'ing out.*

So in order to truly challenge myself this playthrough I'm playing on Proud Mode and chose Magicc and gave up Defense. At level 12 the Wonderland boss could kill me in 3 hits. Still managed to beat him. Putting the Proud in proud mode.

And I'm proud of you!
