1081  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 2014 Kickstarter, Steam Greenlight, etc. thread. What's piqued your interest? on: July 17, 2014, 05:57:06 PM
I don't feel like looking for the Wastelands 2 thread just yet, but I'll say that I read through PaleRobbie's preview of it, and I'm actually quite astonished. That was another one I was kinda skeptical on, but it sounds like they really might deliver. I never played the original Wastelands (sounds too old school for me. I can barely hold my own in the original Fallout), but on its own it seems like it'd be a pretty fun and interesting game.

Hm, never used that site before. Their layout doesn't seem obnoxious, the reader is nice and clean, selection seems nice...I could get used to this. Only problem is its search - it needs titles to be typed in the right order, despite it supposedly looking for titles with those words in it...but that shouldn't be too difficult to deal with. Thanks, Kevuda.

Is there a better fan translation out there?  Right now, there isn't any legit English language publications of the manga or anime.  When there is, I sure as hell will plunk my money down because the series speaks to me. 

The anime is on Crunchyroll if you're in the US. But yeah, I'm not sure what's wrong with Mangahere for a non-licensed manga...? Unless there's a better translation, but usually everyone just uses the same scans...

On my last day in Lightning Returns. I'm horrible with time management, but I completed my main quests so I shouldn't be seeing the game over screen when I run out of time, haha. Still playing Mario Kart 8 here and there with wife and friends. I also just started up Shovel Knight for Wii U. Holy crap, I forgot how hard old school side scrolling games are. I grew up with Mega Man, but I always seemed to hand over the Nintendo controller when I fell off a ledge to my older brother who made the game look easy, haha. I love the cheesy dialog and 8bit music score of Shovel Knight. Good times!

Ironically Mega Man was the only game I had growing up that I was actually better at than my bro. :P Shovel Knight can definitely be hard sometimes, though, even early on.

Space Beer!

Aw, I read that wrong and thought it was a Space Bear.

(Or this Space Bear)
(This is just cute)

Wait, when did DualShockers stop being a Playstation-only site? EDIT: ...or was it ever? I seriously never really paid much attention to them, just kinda figured by the name...

I feel like Fighting games are the absolute worst genre to try free-to-play with. If you're new, you won't know who any of the characters are or if you should bother getting any of them, and if your a big fan of the series, you're probably going to want all the characters anyways. It's really only good for the people who kinda like the series and have played it before, but aren't big enough fans to want more than a pack or two.  Obviously companies are banking on everyone buying all the packs, but then what's the point of going "free to play"? May as well just release the game on disc so people have all the characters right away, with the less hardcore waiting for a sale. Everyone wins, then.

:O These are so cool! What are the eyes, though? Marbles? Or did you just use a shiny paint?

Honestly, when I first saw the article over at Nintendo Life (very surprised that was used as a source here, btw), I thought it was a joke article, but I guess if those Pikachus are for different contest types, that'd make some sense.

BTW, is the game final or are they still tweaking a lot of things?

It's "finished" but they're still patching a few things here and there like any other game.

Started Phantasy Star III. God that game aged atrociously...
IV seems to be the first PS to not look atrocious from the look of III (only ever played IV up to now).

I'm following a walkthrough because otherwise, I have zero idea what I need to do.
I do like that the dungeons up to now are fairly short. So it's not that bad to navigate them even with no map.

I really liked Phantasy Star 1, though the dungeons in the second half can be really difficult without a map. But yeah, 2 & 3 are terrible.

I actually got through Tales of Vesperia just fine without doing any sidequests whatsoever (and I don't recall doing a lot of grinding either), so at the very least, they're nowhere near essential.

Blowing shit up in Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn. Was working on getting all of the medals, but the missions requiring specific suits have convinced me to just unlock all the suits first instead.

Are you enjoying it? I've been thinking of picking it up, especially since it has Crossbone Gundam (albeit as DLC...).

Also, for some reason I decided to play a League of Legends clone on the iPad. Like, I swear this is just LoL with a few minor tweaks and all the human and monster characters taken out, leaving just the furries. Oh, and I think the F2P model might be more agressive, since you have to unlock all the characters after the first one, which you can do with in-game money, but most of them will take a while unless you go with the "Free" characters, which change randomly every week.

I am basically sitting at work trying to concentrate and find I'm thinking specifically about this game. That hasn't happened in a good long while. Coming off the back of E3 and a whole bunch of bad game buys the last several months this thing has been like an oasis.

Larian actually made a divinity game that isn't mediocre? That hasn't happened since... has that actually happened before? I may have to look into this.

I'm as shocked as you are, for the most part.
1094  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Divinity: Original Sin on: July 11, 2014, 08:58:33 AM
You just need to sit back and enjoy the game and not worry about choices too much. Just stick with a general character theme and go with it. I know the feeling of too many choices, but you can alleviate it by making a decision beforehand that you're going to play with a specific focus.

That I know. I guess I'd just have to read up on the game and figure out what I'd want to go with. That kinda goes against my love of going into games blind and experience everything the game has to offer firsthand, but I've learned from experience that going around blind can lead to a lot of problems...

He accepted the offer, though apparently it'll be coming in a SaGa Frontier II case w/ manual...weird...hopefully it'll be here tomorrow.
