So, if anyone is interested-- please do feel free to offer suggestions for music you'd like to hear, topic ideas, and anything else in this thread. If I don't hear anything, you're going to keep getting topics that fascinate me and Derek :)

No, I think you make a good point. I guess there's a variety of factors involved, at least for me when considering a purchase. I'd never buy MG: Rising at $60, but the moment it's $30 or 40? I'd be happy to pay that price. I think it's quality vs hours vs.... other stuff. Totes complex.

I would agree, CJ. I wouldn't call it all crap, but I think the value of games has been boinked for a while now. I recognize games cost a bundle to make, but for a 4-6 hour game, I'd be way cooler paying $30-40 than $60. Conversely, for a game like SMTIV, which will likely last well over 60 hours (or more, if you want it to), I'm okay with paying a little more. Plus I like to give Atlus money.

I just think that games shouldn't all be locked at "this is the price for this system." I had no problem making my parents pay $85 for Phantasy Star IV when it came out :)

Look on the bright side, we got a US release announcement of SMTIV the next day. It could be worse!

I have to be honest. I couldn't care less what they make the plot. I'm going to think of this as a new episode of DuckTales and I will be just peachy.

Nocturne is amazing, Eternal Sonata is good to great. Fantastic music in both.
697  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: April 01, 2013, 10:34:28 PM
1) Soul Hackers
2) Dinner

sorry, I was making a list of things I will have as soon as it is humanly possible for me to have them.

two thoughts:

a) cg, whatever, no gameplay no interest
b) awesome trailer nonetheless

At risk of condoning ponyism, I submit this in reply to my image, ponified.



That said, I approve.

Actually, no, I haven't played any HD re-releases. I don't play games again just because they have sharper graphics. That just oozes of graphic-whoredom. It's not like the upgraded graphics change the actual gameplay or story. It's the exact same. That's why I'm always confused when people get excited about these things. UNLESS...You've never played it before, didn't finish it, or are interested in the content never released before. I get that.
I just see so many great games out there that I'll never have time to play. Replaying ANY game is never in the cards for me. I can only assume that people who play this have already tapped out all those other great games. It's a weird mix of jealousy and bafflement that I'm feeling.
Like I said above, though, whatever floats it.


I have absolutely no problem replaying games I like because of better graphics, and it has nothing to do with graphics whore-dom-- I like the idea of re-experiencing something I've enjoyed with a nice new presentation. Back to the Future in bluray, for example :). And I don't agree with the mentality that a person who loves graphics is someone to frown upon to begin with, because everyone is entitled to enjoy what they enjoy for whatever reason. It's totally cool if you don't feel the same way, but I completely disagree that it "oozes of graphics whoredom" and with the underlying assumption that being a graphics whore is a bad thing to begin with. That's one step away from saying "Stephen replaying Kingdom Hearts because they re-recording the soundtrack oozes of "music whore-dom," and I'd actually fight someone if they implied new music was a bad or shallow thing :)

I couldn't disagree more. Personally, I think if you're saying "they don't look that much better," you haven't played any other HD re-releases. These are leaps and bounds ahead of any other HD collection that got nothing more than a texture filter and HD upscaling. Some of the remodeling and retexturing here is FAR better than the original.

On the other hand, if you don't like ports, that's fair. I like them because portable versions of games I love are ALLLLL-RIIGHT. Plus, Square needs the cash right now, hah.

Got mine. Score! Now I can play it, say I like it, and then get to level 15 and never play again!
703  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: March 31, 2013, 01:37:20 PM
I don't think that was his point at all. And a review is coming, we promise :)

DOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOMDOOM.

Yeah I remember that. The last boss takes a while too, haha.

The whole thing, haha. It helps, but the fights still take a while O_o.
