I'd be happy if they just made the main characters not look like a j-pop boys band.

I thought this WAS about the adventures of a j-pop boys band.

I'm not gonna lie, I would actually love a boy band RPG. Maybe have it something like Macross 7 or AKB0048, or evolve the song magic system from Ar Tonelico/Ar NoSurge, where music helps you save the world. Or maybe have some big music competition in a semi-fantasy world, where you and your bandmates go on a grand world tour/road trip to prove your band is the best. Maybe you'll go around, meet people, gain fans, maybe even customize your equipment and what music you play, and at times make pivotal choices about the band. Perhaps they could even get actual Japanese musicians to guest star. I would kill to have GACKT or T.M. Revolution, or similar acts in a video game. Especially with their costume designs at points...

...I am getting way too into this. -_-; I do, however, want instrument themed weapons and a rhythm minigame at some point (Even if it was DLC).

The story premise sounds pretty cliche and kinda rediculous, but I suppose it has a chance to surprise me. Yet so long as the gameplay remains fun, I'll play it either way.

Platinum would kick me in the balls. I don't think I'm in the mood for a kick in the ball right now...

Shovel Knight might not be a bad choice. I was actually gonna have a seperate list for platformers, though...so you preemptively answered my next question. Yay!

EDIT: To explain more, I just want a fast-paced and somewhat simple game with easy controls and short levels, so I can play in short bursts while still feeling like my time with the game is well spent. I do, however, want to avoid quarter-crunchers and notorious ball-kickers, but I also need a game that isn't, a slow-paced and highly repetitive chore, like Bejeweled or Real Big Fishing...which is unfortunately why I'm having trouble finding a game like this, because most people tend to talk about this type of game when it's on one end of the extreme. The large middle ground seems to go largely ignored.

^Is it weird that I actually feel better having read that?

Played Etrian Mystery Dungeon for 30 minutes. It was worth the wait, but...now I'm not feeling it. -_-;

I'm thinking I need to kickstart my gaming mojo with some pick-up-and-play, arcade-style games, but it's surprisingly hard to find decent games in the genre that aren't rediculously hard....I just need a game that actually makes me feel like I'm progressing, but I don't want to have to feel like it's a big time investment...I have surprisingly few games of that type, at least as far as I can find (I really NEED to update my Backloggery, I can't keep track of what I have just in my head anymore, especially with all these digital games...).

Anybody have any suggestions?

Zelda 1 is still Best Zelda, followed by A Link to the Past and A Link to the Past 2 that came out in 1998 Ocarina of Time never happened what are you talking about games are still in 2D
O.o OoT is the best Zelda game. What the heck are you talking about?

Its an old joke that would've been more obvious if they didn't actually make aLttP2.

Yup. I'm always hip with the latest poop. Did you hear the one about the Ford March? That was a gas!

also Chiepoo doesn't count cats is supposed to be covered in nipples im talkin bout things what usually only got two.

Speaking of which...I mean, speaking of beastmen in Suikoden...Tierkris apparently has a bunch of recruitable beastmen. I am now happy I bought it. Especially since I only spent $12 on it. :]

Code:
I am aware Tierkris has no more beastmen than any other Suikoden game. Don't take this moement away from me.

Oh god, I remember that fight taking forever even playing normally...

Yeah, It's harder than it looks. That's why it's usually a pretty manditory merit badge in the scouts...

I'd offer some tips, but I haven't managed a fire in over 7 years...and I only barely learned it before...

It could be a rerelease, but fuck, I'll take it. I've heard people say the the PSOne version was better than the PSP version, anyways...

I don't really see how.  I actually admired that the PSP version wasn't a straight port but an enhanced one (unfortunately with some really bad 'modern anime' portraiture being the only problem).


Pick: 12 year old anime waif or awesome 17 year old semi-tomboy-semi-girl-next-door-look with the cool eyebrows. ;:)

Neither since the PSX one had a few nasty bugs in it and the PSP one had Welsh.

Welch was a bonus character. :/

Huh, after Saturday, I have the entire next week off. O_O

...but now I feel bad for taking today off...I mean, I was sick, but still...

After working my ass off today, I don't feel so bad anymore. I'm gonna need the vacation. T~T

---

I've yet to have a copy of the Sunday Funnies that have more than 3 funny strips in it...which is a shame, because it's usually the same 4 comics that are funny: Dilbert, Zitz, Foxtrot, Garfield. At least one of them always has to suck, while the rest are usually funny. Otherwise it seems like the are a whole lot of comics that long run their course. Even the newer ones like Lio. Seriously, that got old after a month....

Though to be fair, Garfield and Zits seem to run the same jokes over and over again with mild alterations. They just happen to be jokes I'll probably never stop finding funny, especially Zits, which always seems to find a lot of ways to visually present its jokes - seriously, it's the only one that seems to still celebrate the fact that on Sundays it gets to be in color...

Dilbert I guess is repetitive, too, but it's hard to tell since quite often there's no real punchline to its jokes. I have a feeling Dilbert might work better during the week, because then it doesn't have to be so long...

I need to read Foxtrot more often, though. That one has the most creativity from what I've read, it's just stuck between two of my least favorite comics, so I tend to forget it's there...

Huh, after Saturday, I have the entire next week off. O_O I mean, I put in for next weekend off due to a lack of transportation, but I figured I'd be working the whole rest of the week. Weird...but that means I'll be free on Tuesday to go to the Mall and Pick up a couple games! 8D

...I mean, yay, now I can actually get chores and other non-work essential stuff done. Yah.

...but now I feel bad for taking today off...I mean, I was sick, but still...

Sounds like the dude just hasn't been on twitter. Could be on vacation. The rest of the news sounded more dire.

I was referring to Imageepoch as a whole.

Ah. Then yes, things are looking pretty bad for them. :(

Crimson Dragon's sound track was waaay too good for that game. Bravely Default still had my favorite soundtrack for a game released in my country in 2014, though.

If we're going to include non-game OSTs and original works, I'd have much more to say...
