Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pokemon Sun & Moon (11/18/2016)

From what I've seen so far, this is one of the least interesting 'third' Pokemon entries in a generation. And that's saying something. Definitely passing.

Agreed. Every third version they've ever done has had at least one thing to really entice me, but this one is looking like the exact same game with some extra forms. Nothing remotely interesting has been shown. And there's two versions of this? Come'on, GF, give us something. Throw some curveballs in the plot, have something in those empty lots. Something.

I've given up ordering from LR. It's a genuine pain in the ass to get stuff and they are encouraging the scalper market.

I haven't had trouble yet getting a game I want (always go for the PayPal option to get through with the least amount of hassle), but I do agree that I hate the way they release games.

I remember a while ago they had a poll asking if people wanted a "print-as-many-as-were-preordered" model (like Skullgirls got) or a "the game goes up with a set limited stock and it's first come, first serve" model. The majority chose the latter, because "muh collectibles" or something. God forbid everyone who wants a physical copy gets one.

That would have been cool if the overworld theme was like the dungeon themes, in that a new layer of music was added every time you did something significant. And each province of the map had its own theme. I do like the minimal soundtrack on the field, but some of the dungeon and boss themes are the best this series has ever had.

I have the PS3 trilogies on backlog, the Dusk series still seems so fresh that I forget Sophie's even a game that exists, and I'm afraid that I'm going to completely forget that Firis exists and never even purchase it.

It's hard to keep up when it's yearly like this and I'm so far behind to begin with. XD

They can be upgraded. And while it doesn't allow rain traction, upgrading the Climbing Set does cut Stamina usage when you jump which you do a lot of when its raining (I've gotten up to Ruta's resting place before clearing Ruta without needing to chow down through that upgrade (and by having 200+% Stamina Capacity by that point)). But yeah, its often better just to find something else to do when it rains (preferably within the game).

Oh, I know it can be upgraded, I just wish that had been an added bonus. Or they could have had one of the magic Gerudo headbands you can buy stop the rain effect. Those things are pretty much useless otherwise if you've already got a whole costume set.

They should have made the climber gear upgrade-able  so that in addition to climbing faster, rain wouldn't affect Link.

I hope it's one of those deals where Fangamer has enough preorders for everybody. I buy stuff from Limited Run Games, so I'm stressed out enough buying physical copies of indie games. XD

Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Symphonia (post Gamecube)
« on: April 24, 2017, 02:08:26 AM »
Symphonia was my first Tales game. At the time, I had never played a game that long (I think my initial playthrough clocked in at... 60 hours?), and a lot of the plot twists, as cliche as they are, were fresh to me at the time. They genuinely shocked me with several of them. XD Replaying the game last year on PS3, it's really clear that, while an easy game, the gameplay has not aged well compared to later entries in the series. The free-run has spoiled me. I kept trying to do it. And that soundtrack! Still memorable to this day. Barring Abyss, I don't think Sakuraba has come even close to making a Tales soundtrack that good again. Apparently the PS3 version runs at 30 fps while the original Game Cube version had a smoother 60 fps, so that sucks, but it wasn't a deal breaker.

I think when Dawn of the New World initially came out, I was a lot kinder to it than other people. I've always acknowledged the flaws, but they are way more apparent now that I'm older. I still made it through the game after my revisit to the first one, and dear god are Emil and Marta annoying. I like the idea of the plot (showing the fallout of the first game's ending), but the whole thing plays out like a bad fan fic (I did enjoy the big twist though). I have zero interest in raising monsters as party members. Several of the voice changes are jarring. It is disappointing that we didn't get an actual Symphonia sequel that was as grandiose as the first, but it is what it is. I'd probably replay Symphonia again somewhere down the line but I don't know if I'll ever touch DotNW again.

Yeah, I visit NISA's pre-order page about once a month in the event that something interesting comes up and was surprised to see Ys 8 on there. I mean, I pre-ordered the limited edition, but it is weird to see it without the little XSeed logo.

Additionally, hopefully this will be one of the few games I bought from NISA that doesn't disappoint me. The Atelier games are okay, not really my cup of tea, but everything else I've played from them has been bleeehhhh.

I love playing dress-up with my little waifus and heroes, but not enough to pay actual money. Tales of Graces PS3 already burned me on that. Not happening again. XD

Yeah, except RPGs are usually pretty heavy on story, and like I said, the first hour of LoL is pretty interesting. Each character is their for their own reason, the island itself is mysterious, and then... nothing. Party members barely speak to each other. You really only get the story of whoever you're playing as, and that's only at the beginning and ending. Any party member you don't currently have on the team is basically nonexistent. You never get any real backstory except for some vague messages from the singing stones. There's not many areas, the music's not really memorable, and the battle system isn't that interesting. The way leveling worked just made grinding a tedious slog.

Saw the game's premise, thought the pop-up style looked interesting, played the demo, bought the game expecting the actual story to be in the full release, didn't really get what I expected. Of course I don't play things just for the story, but come on.

I'll be willing to give this a shot if there actually is a story this time. I enjoyed the first hour of LoL, but after that, the game left me ice cold.

GameStop made the Collector's Edition available for preorder again, if anyone's interested.

The game looks fantastic, the great writing from TTYD and SPM is back, the soundtrack is fabulous... but god, I am hating this battle system. It's just as tedious as Sticker Star's.
