Merchant/Thief is the best thing ever.

Steal stuff from enemies and sell it back to them. Calculator-level hilarity, there.

Rob and I ran an interview with these guys a few months ago. They were super nice, and their game is a cool concept.


They just launched their Kickstarter, over halfway to the goal in one day. Absolutely adore that art style and the whole breakdown of the game. Hoping it turns out well!

Too bad that everything Square did post release simply undermined their artistic vision, much the same way the Compilation of FF7 made me hate everything about that world and its inhabitants.  

Except Crisis Core, which I don't think you played. It was fantastic.

You're right, I was mistaken. There have only been perfect Sonic games and abysmal ones. No merely good ones.

Episode 75 is live!  Enjoy!!

Most Bravely Default fans already know if they want the game or not; I was pleasantly surprised that there's a demo at all.
but I think a lot of people are going to take some convincing after some of the recent Square-Enix RPGs of late...

Considering I've been playing almost nothing other than Square Enix RPGs lately, I think maybe I disagree. They had some rough years, but they've been excellent lately. Kind of like how people think the Sonic Cycle keeps going, yet the last three Sonic games have all been good to great. ;)

YEEEEE, sure do love the royal vest. Hate the myth robe for WHM, but now I'm delighted.

It's got some decent music!

He's my favorite character from my favorite Final Fantasy and I find everything about his personality agreeable. Even his theme music puts me in a "me" mood. Listen!

Star Ocean 4 is the best example of 'you can hate a character for many reasons'.

It's quite a feat to make a game where I hate every single character.

EDIT: since Darilon mentions a well discussed opinion, I'm gonna do that exactly:

Edge - His emo/angsty phase after the time travel is unbearable
Reimi - Her lack of self-love (or is it confidence?) and the fact that she is fine with terrible things being done to her is purely disgusting. I get that they were aiming at her feeling saintly, but it just comes out as her being some broken doll.
Faize - Nothing too deep here. I just don't like him. If I had to say why... I'd have to be non-politically correct and say 'he his so gay'. (no offense intended to real homosexuals; you guys are way better than Faize. Also this)
Lymle - Do I really need to say? I have trouble finding a single good thing about her.
Bacchus - They played the unemotional robot way too much and you end up with a doorknob as a character.
Meracle - Pretty much a comic relief character that wasn't funny at all.
Myuria - Tacked on sexy with a pure obsession with Crowe. She's pretty bitchy overall. Still, I like her the best out of the bunch.
Arumat - If there was a discussion about sexism relating to men, Arumat would be amongst the worst offenders.
Sarah - Terribad voice acting coupled with sheer retardedness.

I am excited that it only took the second page of posts for the conversation to turn completely negative. :-D

I was about to make a comment about disliking the cast in Fire Emblem: Awakening, but then I said to myself "that would turn this conversation negative!" We must struggle on in our quest to enjoy!

To narrow it down, "We are looking for Elitist's". Should be cake....

I'm not in Solaris, and would consider myself much less hardcore than any of them, but they are not at all elitists. They're friendly and very welcoming to players who don't play as much, and Tenchi's post said as much too. They've frequently helped me and my free company with stuff for no reason other than to help us enjoy the game. They're just saying that they push content hard so people can actually get it done.

I really hope we do, and with Sony leaning on their own IP a lot these days, I suppose it could be POSSIBLE, though I don't admit to knowing much about the state of the series at the moment.

I LOLed so hard at the last image.

Thanks for your feedback. I'll make sure Kyle catches this. Let me copy what I wrote on the editor's forum, since it's relevant here, too.

I read this in full last night, and it's really wonderful. I've learned in graduate school that cynicism is rampant, and the more education (and I mean that broadly, education meaning experience in any field) people tend to have, the more critical and unable to enjoy they become. It's nice have this editorial to give voice to my thoughts-- that being critical is okay, but not at the expense of being able to sit down and enjoy someone. It's like when I have conversations with a friend who is constantly nitpicking every little game he plays, explaining "well it's fun for a little while but then you realize how limited the mechanics are/this one tiny workaround that totally makes the game easy/etc etc," and I'm like "so?"

We've discussed Final Fantasy IX, and he'll say "it's dumb because the bad guy comes out of nowhere and Amarant is pointless." He's literally unable to enjoy the experience because of a few flaws.

That's not how I play, it's not how I enjoy, and I think you hit the nail on the head: we enjoy things in spite of flaws-- it doesn't mean we forget the flaws, but they don't dominate our thoughts of the experience.

That said, I get that new release "must play everything" feeling, too. For years as a teenager I was able to play basically everything I wanted, and now as an adult that's just not possible, with less time and more games available than ever. Learning to just sit and enjoy what you've got is difficulty, but well worth it.

The only appropriate response is that I should replay Mario RPG.  :]

Also-- EndofPi, sorry I never replied, but nothing makes me happier than to hear you're appreciating the tunes in games more! That's quite literally our goal! Thanks a ton for your feedback!

Well, we'll accept both. If there's something we didn't play from music that became available in 2013, feel free to send that. Otherwise, we're taking general requests too. Be sure to send a reason why you'd like us to play that song, too, so we have something to say about it when we say why you picked it.
