Nintendo also apparently has at least a decent enough relationship with Bamco to let them work on Smash Bros, so I don't think it's out of the question that you could see a Bamco-sanctioned, Nintendo-published, Monolith Soft-developed BK3, yeah?

Part of the reason I loved FFT so much WAS because you could abuse the game. It gave you complete freedom to operate within its systems, and it hasn't been repeated in an SRPG since, not even FFTA/2. Chaos is fun.

Also, I tend to not enjoy whimsy (or anything made by NIS, just not to my taste), so I really couldn't get into Disgaea. The plot, characters, and music in FFT (along with the gameplay) had me hooked on every single level. It's not that I don't recognize that Disgaea scratches an itch (and does it well) for many people, it's just that I don't think I have that particular itch.

Other than the stupid dream demons (give me party members!), I thought KH3DS had great combat. The world design and plot were god awful though, among the worst in the series: worlds were basically skinned boxes for you to jump around on with really half-ass Disney 'stories.' It was like 20 hours of filler and then a two hour cutscene that only further obfuscated things. I miss Donald and Goofy as party members, too.

Agee with Dark Dawn basically being a retread; I hope it gets a sequel, though.

Listening to the podcast; for anyone who wants to play this in multiplayer: download Hamachi.
Hamachi solved the problems I've had with playing with others.

(For people who don't know, Hamachi creates a VPN network between multiple people making it seem like everyone is in a LAN)

You're a gentleman/woman and a scholar.

Tactics, hands-down, in every single aspect.

Wow, sweet! Not much, but at least it's still in development. Digging the updated character models. FFX is a game that would be welcome on my Vita, goofball cast and all.

Finally picked this up last night. I will probably put Fire Emblem aside to play it, since I've only ever played the first dungeon in P4G and have heard great things about the story.

Most people are saying it's a PSone Classic, as there are legal issues that prevent the full remake from being released.

Womp womp.

Picked up P4G at last, today. Looking forward to starting it this week.

You know, the more I play this-- and I'm enjoying it, by the way-- the more it seems to me that the story is utter crap. Events just happen with little or no justification and seem just like setups for the awesome cutscenes. Like
Code:
The arena fight in Ferox? Oh, hi, we just met but u fight for me for my political position?

Also so far, the character conversations haven't been nearly as interesting as anything I've seen in other games with skits. This game gets a bit of a pass, I suppose, since there's so many of them, but at least up to A rank I haven't really felt like I've read anything... interesting, between some of my characters. As a gameplay mechanic they're great and give me SOMETHING to personify the people, but I have to say once I got over the initial awesomeness of the presentation, I feel like I'm reading a Saturday-morning cartoon.

The rings look nicer than a big list. They have less room for text. It's a tradeoff.
717  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 4 Golden for the Vita. on: February 17, 2013, 12:00:32 AM
I really need to play it.
718  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: System Shock 2 - on GoG for Valentine on: February 16, 2013, 10:17:41 PM
I can certainly see a lot of the complains you bring up, Mesh, especially the hacking minigame.  I'm just loving this game's atmosphere and sense of place far more than anything else I've played in a long time.  The Von Braun feels alive and full of character.  This is the reason I loved the Spencer mansion in the original Resident Evil and Rapture in Bioshock.  The Ishimura was the closest thing to a living world since, but even that felt cold and sterile compared to the eeriness of the Von Braun. 

Well, in the Ishimura's defense, it WAS cold and sterile. Until the hit shit the fan.

I don't really get the whole four of February thing.  Do people really play through four games in a month?  I mean, any month...even at my best I don't think I've done more than two.  These days a single game can can me several months...



Yeah, no kidding. Even in my glory days as a high school student I couldn't finish four in a month. Fire Emblem will be my bedtime game for the next four months, most likely.

Well yeah, if you play LUNATIC CLASSIC.

Hey, I'm not known for being sane :D

Plus, when I win, I FEEL SO AWESOME
