I'm honestly stumped as to the massive appeal of the Pokemon games, I got good old Red back when I was a kid capable of putting hundreds of hours into tedious level grinding and even then couldn't bring myself to stick to the end. These days every time I get the chance to play a bit of Pokemon I get instantly bored and put it down. I suppose its the "gotta catch them all" mechanic that appeals to the many OCD gamers. Its massive popularity has to come from somewhere, so I'm probably in the minority here.

If I ware to name all the types of games I enjoy Id end up with a pretty long list, so Ill just go with what I end up putting the most time into:
FPS and to my surprise MOBAs (I disliked the genre for a while but here I am with a lvl 30 LoL account and several hundred hours in Dota 2).

The US puzzles me. It seems like you guys are trying to ban everything from Soda to toys because of the potential harm they may cause. I even heard that microwaves have a safety label on them after some woman tried to dry her cat in one, then there was that whole "sue McDonalds for having hot coffee" business. Yet, somehow you guys still insist on having easily accessible guns and wonderful products like this. Because that's obviously the safest place for your shotgun to be, at arms reach for sleepy papa, little Timmy and even Fido. I know the world is full of absurd crap like this, but I just don't get it.

I think FFVI may have had 6 or so separate releases CT did, Ys is bloody hard to count without investing a bit of time which I don't have right now so Ill take your word for it. My point still stands, make a new one.
35  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zone of the Enders HD Collection, Jehuty in 1080p on: October 30, 2012, 06:37:13 PM
I'm seriously considering picking this up. Ill probably wait until the price drops a bit though.
36  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Chrono Trigger on Android on: October 30, 2012, 06:35:10 PM
I honestly cant think of a game that's been remade, ported over etc. as many times as CT. Just make a new one already...

I don't really see this as a bad thing. The prequels ware pretty terrible and I really can't see Disney making the new movies any worse than Lucas would have made them.

I just realized that we're probably never getting KotOR3 now (well, we weren't getting it, but now it's pretty much final).

=( =( =(

We already got KotOR 3, its just missing the "Ko" and 3 from the title. Seriously though, I doubt this will impact games. If a new KotOR game was ever to be made it will still be made regardless of who's holding the licence.

Holy bananas dude, you just don't give up. I may actually have to give this a go when its done.
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A possibly overlooked reason for the downturn of JRPG's sold in the U.S.? on: October 01, 2012, 07:06:11 PM
The problem with modern jRPGs is that a lot of the "game" portion is being replaced by what I suppose could be called "anime". Early jRPGs ware focused on exploration and battling. The genre slowly started shifting towards being story driven. The balance was struck around the PSO - PS2 era and then the scale started to tip the other way. It'll probably start moving back eventually, and I'm looking forward to the moment it hits the middle again, because that's what I'm most comfortable with.

I hate AI controlled team mates, I wasn't impressed by the demo, I dislike tunnel linearity and I'm still boycotting Capcom. So..WHY THE HECK AM SO TEMPTED TO BUY THIS GAME? Makes no sense... Nostalgia is a powerful thing.

Long names may be stupid at times, but Id say they are very low on the list of problems that plague modern jRPGs (if at all, sometimes a ridiculously long name actually helps draw attention to a game).
42  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Resident Evil 6 on: September 27, 2012, 05:21:40 PM
RE4 did look great for its time, and still holds up well today. The problem is that the game just doesn't feel like RE any more. The co-op will probably kill any exploration that was left in the "over the shoulder" generation of Resident games. All you're left with is a linear co-op slaughterfest set in the RE Universe. At times it felt like I was playing a rail shooter. It is just a demo, maybe the game opens up later on, but somehow I doubt it.
43  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Resident Evil 6 on: September 27, 2012, 05:10:59 PM
"Worse" might be stretching it a little, but I did get the same kind of vibe. I started the Leon scenario and one of the first things that came to mind was how much it looks like Silent Hill 2.
44  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Resident Evil 6 on: September 27, 2012, 03:54:09 PM
I gave the demo a bash, played through the Leon portion and I'm horribly disappointed. Its so obviously focused on co-op that it barely feels like I should be playing this solo. The AI seems OK, but in the long run I hate having to rely on an AI controlled ally and RE is something best played alone. Speaking of RE, this barely feels like Resident Evil any more. I assumed this would be the big temptation for my Capcom boycott, at the moment I cant say that it is. Maybe the Chris or Jake scenarios will change my mind.

I'm stunned there was enough people to approve Chocolina being a good idea.

Bare in mind, its a Japanese game. They seem to like that sort of stuff over there.
