Just translate the Destiny remake and throw it on Vita or something. If they do that I'll buy every tales release going forward, regardless of quality, because of how much I love ToD.

This seems too legit to be an April fools prank too, but I'm never sure when news drops today.

By adding "super" to the mix, it implies that it requires a great deal of skill and effort, perhaps beyond what you feel you are capable of, or at least willing to put into. The idea of hard seems to imply that it is something one can surmount with enough effort, but you have to be willing to do so.

That about sums it up.  My skill level with this type of game (namely action games which require precise controls and a lot of exploring/map awareness) tends to be pretty lackluster, and it just doesn't seem to offer enough of a reward (story) to keep me hooked.  For me, it's not worth the tenacity that would be necessary for me to get good.  Instead, I've been playing a bunch of Ace Attorney, which is conversely feels like constant reward in terms of plot.  I'm not trying to say Bloodborne is bad, but I'm definitely not in the target demographic.

I ended up trying it, and quit before the first boss.  Without a doubt, this is not the type of game for me.

It's a shame, because the ambiance is cool and the story seemed interesting (although it definitely seemed to prioritize gameplay over story) but I just can't handle that kind of super hard gameplay.

So I have a conundrum.

I played about two hours of Dark Souls way back when and /hated/ it. Couldn't find a damn thing to like about it. It makes sense, then, that I wouldn't pick up Bloodborne. However, my housemate went on vacation for a week, left his copy of Bloodborne here, and told me I should start up a game (knowing full well how much I hated Dark Souls). I laughed and said it'd probably never happen.

He's been gone like 6 hours and the game calls to me. I have a pretty good feeling I'm going to get slaughtered and hate it, but it's pulling me in like some kind of Lovecraftian horror. Do I give in?

Is anyone else getting super motion sick from the screen blur in this game?  I've only played one sitting so far because the blur was so unpleasant. :(

On the positive side, Episode Duscae was awesome, so at least I'm feeling good about the future.

I was pretty down on VIII when I was a kid, but then later on I replayed it and it grew on me exponentially. Nowadays it's firmly in my top 5 FF games. My only real gripe with it anymore is that I would've liked a few more party members, as the only one of the main 6 I really liked was Zell.

So this was 15 years ago, but I played Suikoden 2 first and then went back to 1 and played that.  I like this method because 2 is a lot more refined in graphics and gameplay (while IMO both games have comparably good stories) and the holdover characters from the first game drew me into wanting to experience it.  I didn't mind the step back in gameplay and graphics as much because I was already enthralled with the world and characters.  I have no idea whether or not OG Suikoden would have grabbed me initially the way 2 did.

I've tried to buy it on my PS3, Vita and the web store, and nothing has worked. This is torturous.

^ Ditto to that gif for me.

Welp, I'm older and wiser now I guess.

To answer the question you guys had about my question on the podcast: my question was leaning more towards turn-based JRPGs. I do like western RPGs too, but I grew up with JRPGs, so when I think of turn-based, that's initially where my mind goes.
12  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast (Random Encounter) Thread on: July 18, 2014, 07:59:34 PM
Is there a particular theme to go along with the questions, or just general questions regarding RPGs? If the latter, I have one:

To me, it feels like the Action RPG genre is currently in a renaissance of sorts with series like The Elder Scrolls, Dark Souls and Fallout leading the way in creating immersive, open worlds with unique ways of doing battle (Dark Souls' style of 'dangerous' combat, V.A.T.S. etc. Simultaneously, turn-based RPGs seem to be regressing-- many times seeming to use older graphical styles and being relegated to handheld platforms as they become more niche. Do you think a turn-based RPG renaissance is possible and if so do you think it's on the way, or far off?

I can elaborate more if you want me to, but I didn't want to write a novel.

I bought Shadowrun Returns on a whim, and it was so good that I bought the DLC for it too!

I also picked up The Last Remnant because it was like $2.50 and the PC version is apparently better than the X360 one.
14  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Steam Sale - Crits Wallet for 4.99 Damage on: June 27, 2014, 05:55:07 PM
I put $25 in my steam wallet and got the following:
Witcher 2
Syberia 1 and 2
Marlow Briggs and the mask of blah blah it was 99 cents
Wolf Among Us
Castle Crashers
Risk of Rain
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

I'm considering refilling my wallet in case something else good goes on sale. I kinda want Assassin's Creed 4 and Transistor but they're still to pricey for me at the moment. I also hope Broken Age gets a deeper discount.

I'm extremely bummed that it's not coming out on Vita. I don't see myself buying this (or a PS4) any time soon, but most likely it would've been a day one buy if it had been a vita game.
