Re: Fanservice

I love goofiness, fanservice, and goofy fanservice probably more than many of you.  Hell, I enjoyed Let's Meow Meow for crying out loud.  But sometimes, even I get annoyed by fanservice.  Like in Agarest War 2, some of it (e.g. the oil massage sequences) felt like a tacked on afterthought and the game would have been better without it.  That being said, I did find some of the optional event scenes really funny.  Some bordered on creepy, but whatever.

And then you have cases like the manga My Balls.  For the first couple of volumes, it's hilarious (if you enjoy lowbrow humor, obviously).  But then it seemed to get old fast and overstayed its welcome.  EDIT:  I never finished it, but I heard the ending was good despite the supposedly draggy middle, so I'll probably read it again online just to see.

And while I was able to figure out Baten Kaitos and Ar Tonelico from the intro, I'm still stumped on the RPG about a flamboyant vampire pro-wrestler who beats his enemies with telephone poles.  That sounds like a wild game.

I was recently turned onto this indie comic publisher Unlikely Hero Studios and their debut comic Super!  I've read the first 3 issues and I'm enjoying it a lot.  It's top quality stuff; the writing, the art, the comic books themselves.  I hope this little dev house gets big, because so far, this stuff is good!

Haps:

My band, Pool of Thorns, had an invigorating day in the studio today.  We're pretty excited about the new recordings we're doing, updating the demo, eventually doing an album, hopefully getting one of our new 'n improved recordings on the radio...

That is SUPER exciting man! Congrats.

Be sure to PM me (if it isn't too much trouble) and let me know when/if I could procure any recordings you want in circulation to play routinely in the tattoo shop! Nothing better then tattooing to something rocking when you KNOW one of the artists responsible for the tunes!

I tip my hat to anyone who plugs away at a passion... you've been at the music for quite awhile sir, and as such have my respect.

Dude, I most certainly will.

It looks like an SRPG, except that player and enemy turns happen simultaneously.  So it's like "active time SRPG."

Doesn't really look like an SRPG to me. Looks more like a rogue-like. "Tactical Action RPG" sounds like a nicer definition. Sounds like a mix of turn-based gameplay and Action RPG's.Which I would definitely love.

The Kickstarter page is a bit confusing though. It's not SNES styled, nor (in the trailer) is it 2D. Odd.

This guy!  How goes it?  For better or worse, I'm still around.  Hard to believe that this November will be my 10th year on staff and this October will be my 15th in the community.  Heh, whenever I bring up the topic of character renaming, I STILL use your example of renaming Griever to YourAss so Ultimecia will say "I shall now junction myself onto YourAss."

Life for me is pretty much work, gym, Pool of Thorns (the band I currently play bass in), RPGFan, and voice-over classes (yeah, I'm actually pursuing that dream.)

Echoes of Eternea started off as an RPGM game, but eventually graduated to its own engine (the battle engine is not RPGM stock.)  But, yeah, the square coastlines are definitely an RPGM trapping.  I dig the music in the battle video, though.

Aside:

If you click the red YouTube button on the Dragon Fin Soup page, the devs' YouTube channel shows a long video of battles.

I'm about 20 chapters into Mistborn book 3.  What a great series. 

Make that about 30 chapters now.

So basically, it'd be as if Squall were engaged to Quistis.

I know people who are nuts about prison break movies.  I feel like people into that genre of film would dig that game.  I can honestly say that I'm not big into prison break movies. 

And, at the very least, that pony ren'ai wasn't funded.  Page says "funding cancelled." 

Looks like Meridian Shard and Dragon Fin Soup were successfully funded.  Echoes of Eternea's piqued my interest as well (it was already funded.)  And it looks like Graywalkers Purgatory is relaunching its kickstarter later this month.  That game looked interesting.

No one.  There were only 3 of us (all boys) so Firestar was the supposed short-shrift because we were all at that age when boys were boys, girls had cooties, etc.  But man, Miss Lion... that's a thought that never even occurred, though I would expect that from you.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs you're ashamed to like? on: April 08, 2014, 08:15:41 PM
I think a lot of guys would probably be ashamed of enjoying outcome ( girl's side) love adventures/ dating sims (or ren'ai games in general), but I enjoy some.  For example, I enjoyed Hakuoki and Yo-Jin-Bo.

Heck, when given a choice in an RPG,  I always choose to play as the girl.  Even as a kid playing Spider-Friends with the neighbor kids, I'd have to play Firestar because the other kids picked Spider-Man and Iceman first.  But then I watched more and started thinking "Firestar is pretty and has cool powers" so later on, I'd enthusiastically say "I'm Firestar!" when playing.  And in my brief forays into tabletop, I'd create a girl character.

Brain Fart.  My bad.  Oopsie.  Sorry.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1oKoWmu1zQ (Heh, now there's some "I'm ashamed to like this" material)

EDIT:


Let's Meow Meow is pretty good; especially if you're into pubic hair.

This game better be about giant goddamn mounds of ambulatory pubes with teenagers at the center, controlling them and using them to fight the giant space aliens invading Tokyo City, because everyone knows aliens are afraid of pubic hair hashtag thanks obama

I'd play that.

(Oh wait, is this the forum where I pretend I'm not creepy?)

Eh, between this and the waifu thread, I'm surprised we haven't been more perv-creepy.  For the sake of professional decorum I probably should have stayed out of these threads, but dammit I couldn't.

EDIT: A lot of people think I'm crazy to have beaten Thousand Arms twice to completion.  Sure the endgame was a letdown and combat was tedious, but I loved the game and sport the Meis avatar.  I want this on PSN.

There are some visual novels that are very much guilty pleasures for me.  Let's Meow Meow is a very stupid and sometimes creepy eroge.  I should not like this game.  I have better taste than that.  But damn it all, I enjoyed it.  Most people would say they're embarrassed to play eroge in general, but I can say with confidence that I thoroughly enjoyed Crescendo (easily one of the best VNs I've played, period).  But I generally don't reveal that I liked Let's Meow Meow.  If I were an outside reading this, I would point and laugh at me.    

And Arkhaos- I too kinda liked Last Rebellion.  I stand by my review of it.  It had potential and could have been a good game, but ended up mediocre.  I've played worse.
