Well, I've always liked the Zeboyd games because they take a few simple RPG mechanics, give them a small twist, and then are over before they wear out their welcome.  $3 to $5 for a 5-10 hour RPG with amusing dialog and an interesting twist on turn-based combat?  Sure.  Messrs. Boyd and Stiernberg are more ambitious than ever for this upcoming title and I couldn't be more excited for it.  I've only given to (*does a quick count*) six KickStarters before, but this is the only one where I've considered giving over $80 for.  Might go halfsies with a friend and co-design a monster.

It's worth noting that Boyd is 100% against stretch goals: Check the quoted text in this article.  If/when the KickStarter is successfully funded they'll explain where extra money goes, but they don't want to make early promises. 

And if you guys haven't played any Zeboyd games before, their RPGs are awfully inexpensive on Steam

Robert Boyd and Bill Stiernberg are up to their old tricks again.  Here's the KickStarter page for their new game, Cosmic Star Heroine.  It's a science-fiction RPG with a spy theme that draws inspiration from Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star IV, and Lunar 2 from a team with four successful indie RPGs under its belt.  Check out the video on the KS page for more details!  Coming out in late 2014 for PC, Mac, PS4, and Vita.

I usually go by canon names when presented with them.  I don't ever feel the need to take ownership of a story's characters unless the game leads me in that direction.  When I have created characters like generics in a Disgaea or Tactics Ogre or a blank-slate protagonist like in a Dragon Quest or Mass Effect I use the male names Malcolm, Hector, Eltrio, Dante, and Randal; for females I have recurring names Rose, Lily, Iris, Godiva, and Samie.  Those male names are from specific video game characters, and the female names are either my family's dogs or my ex-girlfriends. 

Oh, one other thing I do for generics - I use the names of various colors in languages other than English (...about 90% French or Spanish).  My teams in Disgaea 3 and 4 had Azul, Rojo, Verde, Jaune, Blanche, Noire, and Murasaki.

Hey, new P4A2 (P-1 Climax) trailer: http://p-atlus.jp/p4u2/ (apologies if it's been posted elsewhere)

New character Sho seems like a villain.  My guess is that he's the human hacker working with the "mysterious entity" in the endings for P4A.  Two swords.  Could be fun.

I'm traveling most of the weekend so I don't think I'll be able to take part.  Don't want to risk doing this on phone IRC.

Went on second date with a girl two nights ago; she's a friend-of-a-friend I met at a party.  We were going to watch a movie, but at the last minute she scored some Capitals preseason tickets from one of her coworkers.  We ended up going out for drinks, then seeing the Caps-Blackhawks game from some 2nd-level seats.  She was totally charming at the game and I scored a quick kiss goodnight before we went separate ways. 

...keeper.

414  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I play Persona 1 on PS1 or PSP? on: September 13, 2013, 03:52:18 PM
This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think that Persona 1 is terrible and nobody should play it.  I have tried both versions, the PSP version more than once - I bought it thinking that just the PS1 port was bad, and I was wrong.  The Persona 2 duology is so much of an improvement that it's stunning.  Persona 1 is awful, the next five are excellent.  Woo, comma splices.

Heh, Qwarriors.  I usually get annoyed when a game seems TOO dependent on dice rolls, but Qwarriors takes it to a silly extreme and remains fun regardless.  Good times.  Haven't got a game group together any time in the past week or so except for one medium-sized round of drunken Cards Against Humanity.

I could start working on a Chrono Trigger or SO3 one =/

CT was the subject of the third quiz.  You didn't take part?
417  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC Announced for Steam/PSP on: September 06, 2013, 10:01:15 AM
Can someone help me understand these games?

What order are they supposed to be played through?
With this one, will they all be on Steam?
The first TitS will be on Steam later this year.  The second one will be on PSN and Steam in 2014. 

The earlier Legend of Heroes games are in a weird order in their Western releases and my recommendation... is not to play any of them.  The PSP versions of LoH 1 through 3 (which I think are actually 3 through 5?) are bad.  Just play Trails in the Sky, as it's the first chapter in a new saga, and then wait for the second chapter to come out next year.

Monsoon: I am pretty sure the "Vita" version is just the PSP version playable on Vita.  You can transfer your save files from your PSP to the Vita if that's the case.
Huh, I thought that transferring save files wasn't an option.  In that case, decision made.

I'd feel comfortable hosting on FF VI, FF Tactics, Skies of Arcadia, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, Tales of Phantasia, Tales of Vesperia, or any Dragon Quest game between III and VIII.  So... who's hosting?  Who wants to?  We do want another show, right?

Well, now I have a dilemma.  I own TitS on PSP.  Physical copy.  I want to link a playthrough from 1 to 2.  I am also planning on buying a Vita in 2014.  My options:

-Buy 2nd Chapter on PSN, play it on my PSP.  Move it to Vita later when I eventually get one. 
-Buy TitS on Steam, replay it, buy 2nd Chapter on Steam, play that. 
-Buy a TitS on Vita, replay it, buy 2nd Chapter on Vita, play that. 

Right now leaning towards option 1, honestly.  Option 3 will probably happen eventually, but a year or two down the line when I want to replay all of them. 

...does anyone know if XSEED has their PSN games on sale often?
