16  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Boards / Shameless advertisment section/sticky thread on: July 15, 2014, 08:12:38 AM
Every now and again people come through these boards advertising something, be it their indie game, youtube channel, website etc. Might be nice to have a section to house all of these. It would keep the main sections cleaner while making these topics more accessible to anyone that's actually interested.

The price tag is kind of steep in proportion to my level of interest for the title so there's no way I'm picking it up until its on a massive discount.
There is one piece of DLC worth pointing out though:
... and an in-game item "Zandalor's Trunks", magical underwear that comments on whatever is going on.

So what's the current business model? Single purchase, subscription, microtransactions?

Super tempted to pick up the 2k humble and go on a Bioshock binge (once I'm done replaying Dead Space), especially since I'm pretty sure that the second week bonus games will include Borderlands GOTY (I will be very surprised if it doesn't).

Started a new play through of Dead Space and decided to do it on a stream. I rarely replay games but this is one of those cases where I knew I'd want to come back to it some time for another run.

I have been keeping my eye on this one, but havent picked it up because of the games backlog.

One thing i was very interested in was the co-op aspect as that seemed like a real innovation in an old school style rpg like this.

I'm the exact opposite. I want any multiplayer aspects to stay well away from an RPG unless its specifically built from the ground up as an MMO (Souls games being the notable exception because of the rather unusual implementation). In fact, I don't even like having to rely on other people in MMOs. An RPG is something I like to play my way at my own pace.

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.

SaGa Frontier. Short stories, can clear 1 of em in a good day or two, simple mechanics and layout, turnbased, and grindy. Plus, no spinning camera to make nauseous players vomit.

To this day that game is burned into my memory as the worst commercial jRPG I ever got my hands on (and I've played some stinkers). SaGa Frontier 2 on the other hand is a different story, so if you're going for a SaGa game, save yourself the pain and pick up the second one instead.

I actually meant to type Project Morpheus, since that is related to Sony, but yeah... many are clinging on to hope, that this game is still coming out (I still do, since the game was revealed too early). I mean, I still cling-on to Shenmue III, and it's been 13 years ;)

That would be a pretty terrible idea. Plenty of games would benefit from a VR gimmick, but TLG isn't one of them. That is of course, unless they decided to turn it into a 1st person exploration game. If that's the case, then it might work as a Project Morpheus title, not so great for a spiritual successor to ICO though.
25  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Destiny on: July 11, 2014, 04:03:38 AM
After a while it would be strange if no PC version is released, is a matter of when is gonna happen as far as I'm concerned.

Microsoft is involved, so I would be very surprised if it didn't get ported over to a Windows machine eventually. Problem is, that we all know how bad PC ports can be. If it ever does make it over to the good old PC, I'll probably give it a shake.

Hold on a sec, isn't Smash supposed to be a party game with no competitive balance to speak of?
27  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 11, 2014, 03:57:47 AM
Just some Hearthstone recently. I'm doing fairly well for someone who plays with a default priest deck (and forgets what half the classes can do). Some changes on the horizon, and I'm not sure I like where they're going with the microtransactions.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Harvest Drama: Story of Trademarks on: July 11, 2014, 03:53:28 AM
If the casual consumer (and I hate to use that term, but Harvest Moon really does appeal to a casual audience) walks into a game story and sees both "Story of Seasons" and "Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley" on the shelves which one do you think they're going to go for?

Call of Duty.
Seriously though, I can understand why the developer/publisher would consider this to be a big problem. Re-establishing the brand from scratch and having to compete with a knockoff with the rights to the original name is a pain both financially and marketing wise.

Harvest Moon fans are pissed at Natsume. Lmao.

I never knew how dedicated these fans were.

This is like the smallest of video game wars. It's so cute.

Dedicated fans have the least reason to be upset other than some empathy for the original published/developer. They already know which of the two is the "real" game in the series so the name on the box shouldn't make much difference as long as they get another instalment.

Can't confirm the launch title part, but I'm pretty sure it was announced around the same time if not before the PS3 was out (at least in Europe) as a showcase of what the system can do (thats most likely where my apparent misconception about the launch title came), and then went down the spiral of delays.
30  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Van Buren: A Fallout Adventure on: July 08, 2014, 10:20:23 AM
They should be fine as long as they don't try to sell it. A requirement of two Fallout titles installed to run is a fairly good incentive to leave them be, since it might sell a few more copies of the original games. It really comes across as a mod more than anything.
