I'm on 3 and a half hours sleep for the 2nd day in a row, because Ys: Oath in Felghana... anyway, I'm a public librarian and this gentlemen behind me, who lives in subsidized housing, collects unemployment/disability, and is on a free computer at a PUBLIC library, is currently listening to Rush Limbaugh tell him how big government is ruining America...He's been doing this almost every single day since I started here 2 years ago.

I'll take "People actively rooting against their own interests" for 2000 Alex

Single-Player RPGs / A bird story (to the moon prequel)
« on: August 27, 2014, 11:12:37 PM »
I don't know about anyone else on this board, but To the Moon was a game I enjoyed so much I ended up playing it twice in row (the second time in front of my girlfriend).  On August 12th it was announced that the game's prequel (if you can really call it that) is coming out on November 5th of this year.
 
Here's the trailer: http://youtu.be/SCSK0yrakxY

While I am still amped to see what FreeBird does next, it was still a bit of a disappointment to hear that the new title focuses on the original childhood of the patient from the first game and not the two Dr's Watts and Roseline traveling through dying people's mind brain. i still plan on playing the absolute hell out of it, but the whole thing kind of feels like if Naughty Dog went ahead and made the next The Last of Us title about the Fireflies' struggle against the remnant US government and left out the Zombie narrative  (which TOTALLY might happen, because UGGGGGGH) thoughts???

(Note: the search function on this board is garbage, but as far as I can tell no one else has posted about this. If I am error let me know)

Come on, this is a huge deal.  It's a true classic VN, and there aren't exactly a lot of official localizations of Key games out there (actually, is this the first?).

Also, I don't have to bitch about Sekai Project butchering it since it was all-ages to begin with...

Key made planetarian, right? That story was actually pretty great, and it didnt make me feel all dirty about myself afterwards (like literally every other VN ive ever attempted to sit through) I thought that one had been localized??

I'm a public services librarian at Indianapolis Marion County Public Library.  Saturday night I went out with two of my colleagues to celebrate a promotion.  Things got a little out of hand and I ended up with a 140 dollar bar tab and in someone's basement arguing in favor of child abuse (YOU GOTTA SMACK THOSE LITTLE BASTARDS OR THEY"LL NEVER HESPECT YOU!!)  Sunday my body was in revolt.

According to howlongtobeat.com if I play all of my backlogged games 3 hours a day, every day, until they are all finished, I'll emerge triumphant just in time for Christmas 2020.  yeesh

To me the whole thing is stupid. The last thing we should care about as gamers is an indie developer's personal life, and even if there was some shady stuff going on, Depression Quest is not the next AAA system seller. The worst case scenario is equivalent to an indie developer's buddy giving a good review for a game they made to help spur some publicity. I just don't see something like that "destroying the industry"

I know I should't perpetuate this kind of talk...but this is totally about her being a woman in a male dominated field.  Take an (allegedly) promiscuous woman, put her into a position of leadership in a traditionally male dominated field whose most vocal customers are (allegedly) sexually maladjusted adult males and you get lots and lots of over the top hatred that probably just stems from most of these guys inability to get laid.

Hey, can someone explain this whole Zoe Quinn business to me? I keep hearing about it, but the whole thing is like a a messy ball of thread spun from insults aimed at women/men/feminists/gamejournalists/everyone who ever said anything on the subject and I don't have the energy to untangle it.

See, I played Depression Quest back when it was held together by hyperlinks. Thought it was an interesting experiment, but that the prose and presentation could use some work. Basically a really low budget visual novel with an unusual subject. Worthy of discussion but not of a shitstorm. And then it was greenlit and released on Steam and all hell broke lose? Something about Quinn sleeping around to get ahead?


Que inevitable wave after wave of "sexism in gaming" pieces over the next few weeks. not that it isn't entirely untrue... but this situation is just a convenient excuse for hundreds of boilerplate op-ed posts..

Basically I don't have any personality/interests/afficion beyond what I feel like faking, but I do have a lot of money.

I swear to god I got into a heated debate defending a game that I'd never actually played because I'd convinced myself I HAD played it. This was recently -- I think it was Distant Worlds.

uhhhh.... wow. Ok... ummm (looks at feet)

 so I'm not neccessarily calling you a sociopath, all I'm saying is that those are words that would come out of sociopaths face hole.

This a tremendous idea. At last count I own: 11 Saturn games, 59 PSX games, 5 dreamcast, 78 PS2, 24 PSP, 33 DS, 10 Turbo Graphx, 22 360 and 14 PS3 games. And that doesn't even count all of the SNES and genesis games I used to own physical copies of (before some cock smack stole them) and now have backed up on my hard drive.

Honestly it's gotten a bit cumbersome and a little embarrassing to own that much hardware, but I've never been able to bring myself to sell or throw any of them out (breaking out the TG-16 every so often is worth the space it takes up).  I promised myself after I broke down and finally bought a ps3 (to play the last of us) that I'd never buy another console again, but I'll probably end up getting a Vita.

I feel like a goddamn hoarder sometimes though.

Recently slogged through almost 100 hours of FFXII.  That game somehow managed to be a fat giant turd and impossibly addictive at the same time.  Then I went on a Ys spending spree.  Just finished I and II and have just started Oath of Felghana. 

Does anyone here also keep a journal of the games they've completed?  I like to use "Howlongtobeat.com because it works a lot like GoodReads in that respect.  My backlog is RIDICULOUS though.

Don't forget, RPGs aren't the ONLY games out there man. There are a lot of great ones on the console, the recent port of Diablo 3 happens to be the best version of the game you can get. Infamous was indeed GREAT, and I actually got Skylanders and happen to be greatly enjoying it. The console has a lot to offer, and come October even more to offer. I love RPGS too, but if you really loved them you would get a Vita (if you don't already have one) or 3DS (if you don't already have one)

Valid, but sometimes...I just feel too goddamned old to be walking around in public with a handheld.  And I can't remember the last non-rpg not called The Last of Us that I really enjoyed... I Am Alive maybe?

is a better/more entertaining game than PD Saga. Yup, deal with it.

I just tried to slog my way through The Tudors.  I loved the show Rome back in the day so I thought I give it a shot.  Freaking horrible though.  How they managed to make King Henry VIII's life of drinking and whoring,beheading and then whoring some more seem pedestrian is completely beyond me.

BTW, I hate to be inflammatory (OK, that's a lie), but am I the only one who kind of hated Aegis?  I don't feel like her character had any depth in the first place.

Strange, since a large part of her story arc is how her character grows (ie "gains depth of character") in the game.  Though I think if you don't specifically pursue a relationship you might have missed a lot of what ultimately happens with her.
