Am I the only person who really, really hated Gambits? I get why direct control of all party members in XII would have been impractical, but it still irks me that instead I had to rely on a bunch of if/thens.  I also really didn't like the battle system or AI control in XIII.  For me, FFVII with the battle system from FFX would be perfect (but I also see why some people would hate that even more than I hate Gambits)

Pics or it didn't happen.

Well since you asked...

Edit: Oh god, I was doing just fine when I left the oral surgeon but now they painkillers they gave me there are starting to wear off.  It hurts, it hurts!!

What up dental implant buddy!

I hope you're feeling better today, keep taking your motrin or whatever they gave you and don't fuck around with your stitches.  From my experience, I healed surprisingly fast.

Is this real life?

I thought that the narration in the trailer was referring to how people wanted a FFVII remake but didn't think it would happen, and it was just being cheeky about it.

8  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: why does first shift feel like a prison? on: May 24, 2015, 12:49:24 AM
I've always been a night owl, but I work from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.  I miss sleeping, but I like having the late afternoon and evenings available to do errands and see my wife and all.  I think second shift would feel a lot more lonely.  I used to work in a restaurant where I didn't have to be in until 3-4 PM and while it meant I was constantly sleeping in, for the time I was awake I was constantly belaboring the fact that I had to work later. Now it feels like when I'm done work, the rest of my time is mine entirely.

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.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FF8 am i the only one who dislikes it so much? on: March 25, 2015, 10:52:14 PM
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.
