Listening to the podcast right now, not sure if it's just me but the volume overall seems lower than normal, especially during some tracks. It was especially noticable during To a Strange World. Otherwise, I always enjoy an overworld themed podcast! Great job.

edit: Hurr-durr I checked all volume settings except iTunes...Never mind, the volume is fine!

Thank to RPGfan for adding to my backlist of RPGs that I would have been interested in when they came out but never knew about...Also thanks to Taelus and co for the Music podcast! A lot of the tracks rekindled many of my teenage summers spent playing RPGs.

So i finally had some time to sit down and play this a couple weeks after buying it. Re-rolled my party twice because the portraits didn't match my character models, but that's besides the point. Ended up trundling my way to level 4, cleared the light house after cheesing it a bit by running away and resurrecting my party and then zerg rushing.The sneak animation or whatever you want to call it is great. It's Metal Gear-esque and I like how the game doesn't seem to take itself too seriously.

So far this reminds me so much of the whole experience of playing BGI/II for the first time all over again. So good.  Not really sure what to do next, but I'm sure I'll stumble across something.

edit: Actually, a lot of it reminds of me of playing Ultima 7 for the first time. I really do feel like I can do anything. I remember in Ultima 7 when I realized I could rob the mint and get away with it...That was a game changer.

1. Final Fantasy XIII-2
2. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
3. Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
4. Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls
5. Final Fantasy II
6. Parasite Eve (forgot to add this in last year's thread)
7. Bravely Default
8. Lego Lord of the Rings
9. Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse
10. Long Live the Queen

Picked up Long Live the Queen as I saw a random article about it on Kotaku the other day. Totally reminiscent of Princess Maker, thought is is a bit more streamlined and simplified. A bit more emphasis on the story, and the game play is fairly short. It got me thinking if there were any more games like this, but none of the others ones on the developers site looked very good in terms of appealing art style to me. Overall, a pretty fun little game.

PSN flash sale! Games for $0.99.

some RPgs of note:

Harvest Moon Return to Nature
Wild Arms
Wild Arms 2
Legend of Dragoon

Full list is on the Sony Site. https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/en-us/flash-sale/cid=STORE-MSF77008-9_FLASHSALE2014

I'm probably in for Dragoon and Wild Arms 1/2. For $3.00, that's a lot of game play on the Vita.

Bought this last week, haven't had time to play it. So far I've done about...2 fights in the game, and it really doesn't hold your hand in anyway. Looking forward to spending some time with this game!

After Sailor Moon left me with a luke warm meh, I tracked down  Dragon Quest: Legend Of The Hero Abel. I was craving some nostalgia, and DQ will do just fine. Pretty much the 1st anime I  can remember watching back before I knew what anime was as A kid. Will watch what I found with glee later.

Hah! No way! You found the DQ Anime? I recall watching it in Korean when I was a kid and thought it was the coolest thing ever. Since then I've only ever seen snippets of it on Youtube.

Haven't really had time to game as much as I used to, still have a bunch of games on the go but I did beat Broken Sword 5 over the weekend.

1. Final Fantasy XIII-2
2. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
3. Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
4. Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls
5. Final Fantasy II
6. Parasite Eve (forgot to add this in last year's thread)
7. Bravely Default
8. Lego Lord of the Rings
9. Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse

BS5 felt every bit a BS game as it's earlier games. The first part was very well done, the second part had a bit of a drop off, but still good. No real puzzles that made you go "how was I supposed to figure that out?!". I guess the departure from the whole Templar theme was inevitable considering how mainstream it has gotten due to the Da Vinci Code, though I felt Nico was under utilized in the game. Oh well, still a very solid adventure game to spend ~12 hours on.

Now, just need to find time to beat DQ8, DQV and Divine Divinity: Original Sin.

I too bought Broken Sword 5.  Still have to play 4.  Anyways I was proud that I didn't go crazy like last year.  I haven't downloaded a single steam game I have purchased (a little over a dozen).  At GOG, I went crazy since the more you buy the cheaper it is.  I have purchased 50 games over the years.  Several of those I have no intention of playing. But I have tried/beaten several of those.  I seriously should only only buy when I have nothing to play.  It is just so hard resisting the sales.

Broken Sword 4 has this crazy thing where if your computer has more than 1 core, which pretty much means all modern computers, the characters turn into black shadows. I recall having to disable some cores prior to playing. Weirdest bug ever, and I don't think they ever got around to fixing it.

sort of related, but this guy's flickr account shows what used to come in the box with games.

This one is my favourite. It just really captures that whole experience of opening up a game when I was kid. Sadly, I never owned DW2, but  I can feel the nostalgia radiating through these pictures!

i bought this when it came out, played it for an few hours, powered down my PS4, and it never occurred to me to go back and play.

It lacks a certain...je ne sais quois, and as much as I wanted to like it, I just don't see myself going back to it.

Steam summer sales are up!

The Witcher 2 for $3.99 seems like a really hot deal.

DW/DQ, the most linguistically diverse RPG series?

I mean, between all the accents and semi Middle English translation of DW 1...it's gotta be up there.
