1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 1 and 2 finally coming to psn + Suikoden discussion. on: December 10, 2014, 09:52:56 PM
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.

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.

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.

Glad you guys talked about Drakengard! I have a theory that all the gameplay problems were a deliberate design choice put in by Yokoo Taro to upset people.

I also kinda want to play wasteland now.

I like Merchants and Marauders, but I dislike how it can sometimes feel like you are accomplishing nothing on your turn, or that your ship is moving at a snail's pace.  It's still an awesome game, but hard for impatient people like me to play with people who might be slower or take a longer time strategizing.

Eclipse is one of my favorites though, especially because of how many paths to victory there can be.  I personally prefer using the blue alien guys and working towards a science victory by researching everything and building monoliths.  The only negative thing at all (IMO) about Eclipse is that it has been so damn difficult to find a large amount of people to play it with.  My friend owns it and the expansion, and the most we've gotten to the table is five people. We aspire to have a nine person game one day.

Worchestershire has fish in it, you monster!

That recipe does look awesome though, anything that includes those canned chipotles in adobo can't be anything less than delicious.
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Surprise! Drakengard 3 (aka; how to damn "nier" lose your shit about old title) on: May 23, 2014, 10:08:44 PM
I wouldn't hold my breath on a patch for that though, I think we're gonna be stuck with the release version (I could be wrong, but from my experience I don't think it runs poorly enough that a patch will get put out). I've sorta gotten used to my PS3 games running like shit, but I don't find this one to be /too/ bad.

Gameplay issues aside, this is pretty much everything I wanted or hoped for. Not as rad as Nier but it's awesome in its own way.

There were some pretty awesome spaceship battles at the end of DS9 as well.


Quark
Garek
Gul Dukat
General Martok
Sisko (gives Picard some great competition as best captain)
and......!


Sisko was not a captain though (although I guess technically you could count commanding the Defiant as captaining, though IIRC, he held some other rank like commander or admiral for that).

Sisko gets promoted to Captain in Season 3. Before that he was a Commander.

I look like this now.

No stateside exposure my ass, homeboy was in Con Air!

Trek all the way, DS9 is my favorite television show of all time, and they really should continue the Trek universe post-voyager because I liked how TNG, DS9 and Voyager together built an awesome world.
