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!
711  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.
713  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: March 30, 2013, 10:30:00 PM
The whole thing, haha. It helps, but the fights still take a while O_o.

The final dungeon in FFXIII is annoying the hell out of me. Regular enemies are taking upwards of 10 minutes a piece to kill and they throw so many of them at you that it is impossible to avoid them. I get so sick of fighting them that I let myself die and click retry to try and dodge them. I've liked the battle system up to this point, but it's starting to get on my nerves a little bit. Hopefully this dungeon ends soon.

The final dungeon in that game is a slooooooooog. I had maxed the Crystarium as far as I could by that point, and it still took forever. At least the music is cool :)

Shows how much I know. I put over a hundred hours into DS and then another ~60 into DS:O and never even knew there were prevalent bugs. Evidently I am lucky to an absurd degree. Bullet dodged, I guess

How nice of them to release four albums full of music that are already available elsewhere. Where are all the REMIXES?! Hunter's Chance from the menu?! Laaaaame.
717  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Xillia panel at WonderCon! on: March 30, 2013, 04:16:54 PM
Awesome! Thanks for sharing-- I love me some Tales. I heard it's Sam Riegel playing Jude, which is awesome. Also, I'm so stoked for fully-voiced English skits. Even though I still haven't played Graces F, which apparently had them too? Or not? Either way, woohoo!

Probably getting an employee in trouble because of your perception of the corporation? Seriously?

I'm with you. I still like JRPGs in general, but I think Kyle absolutely nails it. I don't even agree with some of his examples and yet I still think it's a good point. Thanks a lot for commenting on it!
720  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 29, 2013, 06:16:22 PM
I like remakes and new IPs and have no problem with either. I've enjoyed many of their new IPs, and just as many of their remakes and ports.
