I finally started English Tales of Hearts R. I wasn't mistaken, this game is definitely better than Xillia. It's formulaic, but I'm enjoying it way more than Xillia, which felt painfully perfunctory and rushed.

Also played some Graces F for the first time, and I like that, too. I hear the cast is awful, but I'll be damned if the area design isn't more interesting than Xillia.

Basically I really don't like Xillia.

I'l have a lot more to say soon, but I think it makes a pretty but clusterfucky first impression with way too many popups, menus, clicks, and other stuff. Feels a little janky.

After a few hours it comes together though, and it's quite fun. Fantastic atmosphere, really captures a unique European fantasy vibe.

It was tasty.

If you play on easy, you could probably get away without pasuing.

Yeah, I've had great fortune with KS-- basically every game I've backed has lived up to expectations or greater. Darkest Dungeon is already awesome, Pillars is awesome, I love Broken Age, etc, etc. I could see being gunshy, but much like my staunch adherence to attending midnight screenings of movies, I back Kickstarters to be part of the enthusiasm and mood surrounding it.

It's on UE4, I believe.

I backed this so fast my wallet exploded.

I actually find I read the front page more than ever, now with our crazyballs news team writing so much. I used to have to go elsewhere, but now I can just take advantage of the wonderfully egotistical act of reading my own site :)

Although props to you for checking on podcasts ;)

Ugh, I want one, but I also don't want to spend $25 on something that will just sit on my shelf forever and look cool.

FF9 may take a long time, but it's also way more interesting literally immediately. It manages to world and character build while still not having me run across a field for the nth time as they repeatedly bludgeon me in the face with 'GOSH ESTELLE IS SO DERPY BUT GANBARE!' In 5 hours of FFIX I have staged a kidnapping, met many of the characters, been SHOWN who they are rather than told, a friend gets petrified, you escape from a ghost forest, and then you almost freeze to death in an ice thing.

In 5 hours of Trails I ran back and forth between my house and a guild and listened to them TELL me how derpy Estelle is and lampshade "MYSTERIOUS PAST" with Joshua so hard it's almost laughable.

I like parts of this game, but the fact that everything is an obscenely protracted process makes me want to cry. I can't really lose myself in the script. It's well-written and clever occasionally, but it's also the most unoriginal thing. I had hoped that would ease up, andI keep hearing that things heat up near the end... and then it ends. We'll see, though. Most of my negativity towards it is fueled by a combination of the absurdly slow build of the story AND the slow combat. I'm still enjoying it well enough, but I am a bit perplexed by the cult status of this game.

Then again, maybe I'm just a Falcom heathen, because so far I've found so many of their games (all of them that I've played, really) to be aggressively mediocre. I'll keep plugging away at this one, though.

I am sort ofat the point where I want to stop playing this game. EVERYTHING

Also people are telling me nothing really happens until the END of chapter 3?


At least Final Fantasy XIII was pretty for the 25 hours it took to get going.
72  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: May 08, 2015, 02:47:08 PM
Very true!

The more I play, the more this reminds me of a more terrestrial Skies of Arcadia. A good thing!
73  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: May 08, 2015, 02:01:05 PM
until FF9 came along and kind of switched things back.



Really enjoying this, but oh my god random battles take FOREVER. This is Wild ARMs 3/AC:F levels of annoying. Five enemies that all take three-plus hits to kill? 4 XP per battle when I need a couple hundred to level up? Ngh.
74  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: May 06, 2015, 11:56:51 PM
That would be awesome.

75  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: May 06, 2015, 11:44:31 PM
Also, I wanted to suggest that we eventually play through a co-op RPG. That could be really fun on the show, yeah?
