Just to be contrarian, the Beatles are the exception to the rule.

Their early stuff was pop fluff - the equivalent of boy band fodder.

And they finished with their best album - Abbey Road. (Let It Be was released after but recorded before)

For the big MGS fans, how do you feel that Konami vows to continue the series after Kojima leaves?

Are you happy there will be more MGS or are you let down that they'll never wrap it up and a convoluted story will go on forever?

It's been wrapped up with MGS4.

I haven't gotten around to MG Rising yet, but that's the game that seems to continue the story.

If they let Platinum do it? I might not be so upset. It's a wait and see at this point.

FF8 is by far the worst game, if only for its god awful, insult to intelligence story.

The fact they all magically forgot they were muppet babies together and the villain was their nanny was the only time I have rage quit a game because of its plot.

Truly, truly awful.

I'm being placed in a catholic school for my last placement.

I am a public school teacher who has long hair, earrings and likes Slayer. Hopefully I get through it without being exorcised.

Plus I got a job helping design an online course - $28 an hour! And this was right after getting a bursary for $1700!

Time to go buy Bayonetta! \(^^)/

Just a shambling corpse now.

Tooker is being reasonable and that's about it.

Everyone else is just "Fuck yeah digital! Fuck your opinion!"

Unless you consider calling my points about ownership of digital media "bullshit" as "being supportive of my desire for physical versions of my media".

Don't act like there's been a conversation. There hasn't been.

You and only you. Christ, talk about selfish.

It might be nice if they at least fixed the grammatical errors, but even if they don't people can take consolation that it's still going to run better than the Silent Hill HD collection.

Honestly the data transferring in Suikoden was always kinda pointless when characters level on a curve anyway, the equipment doesn't really do much, and there's no story bits to transfer other than your hero's name- wonder if they'll keep that glitch.
McDohl McDohl, hero of Toran

There actually is a bit of story data and you get to revisit one location from Suiko 1, if I remember correctly.

It still bugs me that both Chrono Cross and Legend of Mana are maligned simply because they aren't copy/pasted sequels of Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana.

The difference is you have a choice of which format you wanted to buy the Stand in.

I get no choice with Yakuza.

I took a little time to play some more Chrono Cross.  Still have the top-right "Escher room" to do in Fort Dragonia.  

Objectively speaking, Cross is the better game.  Subjectively speaking, I gleaned more visceral enjoyment from Trigger.  Trigger, visually, also aged a LOT better. 

It did, but I'd argue that Cross's soundtrack is better.

Finished Jade Empire today. I actually really liked it, but I knew almost nothing about it going in other than that it was considered a disappointment after KOTOR.

Maybe people wanted more sci-fi or D&D type settings?

I thought it was cool that they did something unusual and having spent time in Asia I could identify with the setting.

I got both endings, but the "evil" ending was a little silly.

Overall, a much better game than I was led to believe.

The biggest question is will the saved game data transfer between games.

The no ownership thing is pretty bullshit. PC is an universal platform with eternal backwards compatibility. Just because something is digital, it doesn't mean you don't own it.

Except digital platforms are specifically designed so you don't own your content - Steam, Netflix, itunes, pick whichever one you want.can

You can think what you want, but don't call something bullshit when it isn't.


I've basically gone digital with everything it is possible for me to go digital with - books, music, games

And people like you are the reason I can't have nice things. I don't even get a choice of what format I want to buy.

Just digital or nothing - and you are making it possible. Thanks a lot.

If there isn't a PS4 port in Japan, there's not going to be one here.

Relegating the series to digital only isn't going to make the series any bigger.
