Battletoads


Seriously?!  You BEAT Battletoads?  On NES?  Dude, that's "we're not worthy" bragging rights!  I could never get past the hoverbike level.  Most of my friends all say, "Dude, none of us got past the hoverbike level."  And, as an aside, I'm sure several folks had pixel crushes on Dark Queen.  For the heck of it, I watched the final battle and ending on YouTube and LOL'd when
Code:
Dark Queen called them Cattle Loads.

I want to say Phantasy Star II, but I GameSharked my way through Dezo's dungeons and have no shame in admitting that.  That game had some sadistic dungeons.  

Gotta add Shin Megami Tensei (SNES import.)  That game was f'n brutal.  I was just reminded of it thanks to the iOS version recently out.  Yeah, it's brutal.

Dice- all great stuff.

Buhloone Mindstate. All of it.

+1 to that.  Buhloone Mindstate is probably my favorite De La Soul album.

"Clair de Lune" by Claude Debussy.  Without a doubt the single most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard.  Definitely one of my all time favorite compositions.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvFH_6DNRCY

My favorite part of that movie was when Socrates called Sigmund Freud a geek.  That was a profound moment.

I had fun with the demo.  Still a work in progress, but I like where it's going.  Storyline and characters seem solid, I dug the music, battles were engaging, and I liked the creativity in establishing races of unique beings that haven't been seen in fantasy.  It's part of the retro trend, but not getting on the "lol elves" bandwagon.  It looks like an 8-bit RPG but has modern sensibilities.

Ahh, vegan ice cream.  A few years back I had this epic "vegetarian/vegan" potluck where a ton of my friends all cooked a meatless dish (we feasted like kings!) and one person made vegan brownies using bananas in place of the dairy.  Yeah, they were slim little brownies (not fluffy) but man were they good. 
53  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 2014 Kickstarter, Steam Greenlight, etc. thread. What's piqued your interest? on: March 12, 2014, 07:50:40 PM
Sure thing.

You could always share it here in this thread if you want. 

And it looks like Dragon Fin Soup's on Kickstarter now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/grimmbros/dragon-fin-soup

I'm about 20 chapters into Mistborn book 3.  What a great series. 
56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 999 on iOS. VN only! on: March 10, 2014, 06:18:05 PM
I'm semi-okay with this.  I think it's great that more people can experience this game and hopefully it'll do well enough to encourage more of this type of game on the platform.  

However, I think the perfect thing would be a balance of the two (original puzzle version vs. VN version).  I liked the puzzles, but I didn't like having to do them over and over in multiple playthroughs; an option to skip over previously done puzzles would have been sweet.

I'm not big on action RPGs either (I'm an ol' fashioned turn based dude), but Dragon Fin Soup's battles seem more tactical.  The Greenlight page says "turn based" a fair amount.  It and Echoes of Eternea seem most up my alley.  Those are the two I'm most interested in following.

I like Greywalkers: Purgatory's style and setting, because there aren't enough SRPGs that utilize this type of setting.  Starcrawlers appeals to the outer-space sci-fi fan in me, and The Meridian Shard appeals to my old-school aesthetics.  

I sampled the Festival of Magic demo, and while it's solid for what it is, it's not quite my cup of tea.

And why single out bronies and not weeaboos or any other insufferable fanbase out there?  The existence of "those" fans is not going to make me like anime or what-have-you any less.  No matter what, you will always have "those" fans out there, for anything.  And you know what?  They're worth marketing to.  If they latch onto something they like, they won't just speak with their wallets.  They'll shout with them.  Of course, do something they dislike and they'll immediately give you the silent treatment with their wallets, but while they're still shouting with their wallets...

So I'm not opposed to there being a Kickstarter game that does market to a particular fanbase.  That fanbase will eat it up.  Some people might cry "selling out" but the creators could say they're selling in, and may end up laughing all the way to the bank.  My only objection to that game is that it seems unimpressive for an alpha build.  The 2D art overlaid on top of photographs of malls and libraries is a blatant shortcut and looks cheap.   There's no mention of how RPG elements (like what?  Weapons?  Battles?) are incorporated.  Will it be like Fading Hearts?  I'm iffy on some of the voice acting too.  Like the jock pony doesn't sound like a genuine jock; more like a dorknerdgeek pretending to be a jock. 

Regardless, the fact that we're all so hung up on this is just publicity for the project.  

But thanks to the thread,  Meridian Shard, Greywalkers: Purgatory, Echoes of Eternea, and Starcrawlers have piqued my interest

Either way, it's a mechanic that hasn't been used often enough.  I can dig the idea of a character truly developing veneration.

Of course nonsense like that exists.  I mean, didn't Japan have that pigeon-centric love adventure?  At the very least this pony one doesn't appear to be a Rule 34 nukige or something.  It seems like Brooktown High but with ponies.
