1741  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII announced for PC, SE Store exclusive with new online features on: May 06, 2013, 10:12:03 AM
Apparently, the download for the game is only valid for 30 days. If you didn't keep the installer, you'd have to buy it again.

You might want to read this when you are a bit later in the serie

It doesn't matter because the world line is a self-healing mechanism. No matter what they do, they will either never get the computer or lose it to SERN shortly after acquiring it.

I still can't believe there's a section on smell...

Wait... Energy Breaker is in the Lufia universe?

Consider me intrigued, still too soon for interested.

1. Chrono Trigger
Timeless classic. I can't add any more to what everyone has said over the last decade.

Playthroughs: Too many to count

2. Valkyrie Profile (PSX original)
The though-as-nail, hyper-rewarding, incredibly scripted, beautifully orchestrated, Norse immersed wonder. This game is both beautiful and depressing. It stays on the grey line between life and death and portrays the pointlessness of life with a cast that are but tiny specks of dust that you can't help but root for. Lenneth is an incredible protagonist, but the rest of the cast doesn't fall far behind.

A small snippet at the start of the game shows the depth of the characters:
It was through others' misfortune that I felt myself to be strong. That's right; I was myself without morals. Who was I to judge others? Who was I to look down on them? Injustice...

Finally, if a game ever did cutscenes right, this is it.

Playthroughs: 2

3. Terranigma
On the complete opposite of Valkyrie Profile. This game represents the beauty of life. The story, ambience and thematic are magnificent. The ending is so good, I think I stood in front of the screen for minutes just staring and listening to the music.

Playthroughs: 2

4. Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner
The ultimate proof that if you make a great 3-hour game, people will play it for a bazillion hours.
The art style is wonderful. The controls are simply god-sent. The boss fights are plentiful and interesting (except the hacking one... fuck that one).

Playthroughs: Too many to count

5. System Shock 2
Go read everything I posted in the System Shock 2 thread =P

Playthroughs: 5

6. Ogre Battle 64
As far as tactic RPGs go, I have never met one that equalled it. This game stands tall like a king. The complexity of the system and the liberties left to the player allow incredible customization. The chaos rating system allows for multiple playthrough to be different.

Playthroughs: 3

7. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines
I recently discovered this game and I'm amazed that even if I played it a decade later, the game didn't fall short because of it. This game shapes itself to how you play it to a degree that is almost hard to believe. "Don't. Open. It."

Playthroughs: 2

8. Star Ocean 2
I think this is the JRPG that came the closest to recreating the feeling of playing Chrono Trigger. It's happy, go-lucky and buckets of fun. The dual protagonist system is also a great feature.

Playthroughs: 6

9. Ar Tonelico 2
Although 1 and 3 are good too, this would be the most balanced one. An interesting take on the turn based combat system paired with big numbers (everyone loves big numbers). The music is excellent and Croix is by far the best character of the serie. The 3rd reyvateil ending is also one of the manliest thing I've ever seen a protagonist do.

Playthroughs: 1

10. Ever 17
I don't think a game will ever hit me as hard with its plot as that game did. I probably won't ever play it again, as knowing the ending just doesn't make it the same as the virgin run... but that first run was incredible.

Honorable mentions:
Super Metroid
Perfect Cherry Blossom and Imperishable Night (screw the game, the music itself wins it the honor)
Yakuza 4
Shining Force 2
Tales of Vesperia + Tales of Graces F
KotOR 2
Soul Nomad
Katawa Shoujo
Chrono Cross
Baldur's Gate 2 (+ every expansion)
Diablo + Diablo 2

Klyde needs a couch so comfy, he can't get up from it.

Am I a terrible person for thinking I'll just buy it when it Steam sales at 50% eventually?
I just know it will...

I just came back from my first university class.
Yes, I am old and have a stable job... but I decided to do something stupid and go to university on intensive night classes.
You'd think I'd be studying something really useful, but nope, studying Japanese.
I know a bit here and there, but I've always wanted to officially learn it.

Between this and the fact I'm currently buying a condo and moving in some weeks, my summer will probably be incredibly busy.

Current feeling:

I was waiting to get it cheap on the side, but that's not too encouraging a review =/
Maybe I'll just wait for the next one... yet again.

Japan has this weird fixation that all female pop stars need to be 'pure'

Not to defend the fan's creepiness, but they do 'market' the girls like that.

That opening has an awful lot of...walking.

You just made me instantly think of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvg3qYvhDsY

There's really no point in talking about this. Let me explain why.
By linking the original in your post, you just gave him clicks, which is exactly what he wants.
Kotaku is just trying to get attention by using guaranteed shitstarter topics lately.
Personally, I think they aren't worth the attention.
