Yeah, I gotcha.  I'm just not sure how a demo is supposed to communicate story and characters the way you wanted it to.  I'm pretty excited about the game, though, so I guess my predisposition was more positive.  Also, story and characters are never the first thing I look for in an RPG.  Looking forward to checking out the new episode.

The final boss of FTL can go **** a duck.

Featured on a recent Bombcast, the BEST pinball music ever.  Yes, apparently some pinball machines have full soundtracks, and at least one time it was THIS BITCHIN'

THE BLACK KNIGHT

I want to hear three remixes of this tune at MAGFest 2015.  Minimum.

I deeply deeply wish we had gotten one of those ToD remakes.  The original Destiny is the worst Tales Of game by a long shot, and the remakes probably fix 90% of my issues with the clunky combat and lame character customization.

Still plugging away at Assassin's Creed 2. 

... also started up The Walking Dead.  Currently pretty early in episode 2 (entire group is at the dairy farm), and I thiiink I know where this particular episode is going.  The mom at the farm gives me such a twisted Evil Paula Deen vibe that there is one obvious twist that's coming up soon, I think.

So... do we have an update? It's been awhile.

Playing Assassin's Creed II.  First time I've played any AC game.  I like it quite a bit; the story stuff is fair, but the historical fiction aspects of it are really interesting.  I like the open world, but it feels a little too samey - it's very, very obvious that the team re-used assets constantly, which is fine but I wish the different parts of Florence and Tuscany were a bit better-differentiated. 

The open crowd combat stuff is okay, but kind of easy and light on punishment.  My favorite parts of the game are the more confined, linear areas (Assassin tombs, Templar lairs, etc.) which feel like really good Prince of Persia levels.  What I'm saying is I want Assassin's Creed to be more like Prince of Persia, but I get the idea that the later games in the series move it in the other direction.  Maybe I just want another Prince of Persia game?

I've played Phantasia (S.Fam, GBA, PS1), Destiny (PS1), Eternia (PS1, PSP), Symphonia (GC), Legendia (PS2), Abyss (PS2), Vesperia (360), Innocence (DS), Graces (PS3), and Xillia (PS3).  My least favorite by FAR is Destiny on the PS1.  That game is like a slower, jankier Phantasia with too many characters, most of them uninteresting or rote.  Garr was my favorite, but I usually like the "sarcastic older guy" characters anyway.  My favorite is a tough choice between Phantasia (my first, and a classic RPG in every sense) and Vesperia (excellent main character, pretty solid combat and quests).  I didn't dislike Xillia as much as other people seemed to, but it's probably because I enjoyed the combat and customization so much.

My go-to answers for this question are Laharl from Disgaea 1, Delita from Final Fantasy Tactics, and Carmen. Mother. Fucking. Sandiego. 

Favorite characters from more recently-played games would be John Marston and Kanji Tatsumi.  Love those two guys.

FTL - I've reached the Rebel Flagship probably five or six times, and gotten to its third form twice.  Once with the red version of the starting ship, and once with the Engi donut.  Thing is TOUGH.  I will beat it before 4 in February!  Maybe.  FTL is a pretty neat game.

For a second I thought this topic was about Final Fantasy VI, but then I remembered it's Doom Gaze.  Or Deathgaze.  Whatever.  This game looks okay.

I'm not sure what I want more: an Ys V remake, an Ys VIII, or an Ys Zero about the very beginning of Adol's journey.  Any of those sound dandy.  And I would prefer that it take place on PS4 with Vita cross-play, but really I don't care as long as they keep making more Ys.  I've beaten six Ys games in the past four months.  I'm slightly obsessed. 

The beginning of Adol's Journey is reaching the land where Ys I happens, it's already covered. he got a boat on some village and then got caught up in the storm wall and ended up washing ashore Esteria. He left his birthplace when he was 16 and he was still 16 when Ys I and II happened, it was his first adventure.
So what was that "some village?" Literally nothing adventurous happened to him when he was 14 or 15?  I think there is room for a game in there, but I won't be heartbroken if it never happens.  Ys 8 is the most logical next Ys anyhow.

Or a nice wet CStW:SHECEADDXPAFESHD-PEGotYCE(wA)?  (that's also a real acronym, minus the question mark.)

But seriously, I'm starting to doubt it's Ys, because the figure we see lacks a shield.  New Dragon Slayer makes sense, though.

Is it one of Boudicca's Celtic things?  That lady was a true bad-ass.
