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.

I'm just going to drop this here

No ownership. No consumer rights. Don't give a shit about the frame rate - as long as it's stable.

Gaben is the worst thing to happen to gaming. Worse than EA, worse than Activision, worse than the crash after E.T.

Have you read Philip K. Dick?  You might like him.  His stuff tends to have pretty grim futures, but man, it's good.

Yep, have about 12? of his books - I've actually lost count. Have two or three short story collections as well.

He's great, though his later stuff is a little wonky.

So, Suikoden III. Great Suikoden game or the greatest?

Great - but not the greatest because of the way they screwed up the battle system.

I loved the Trinity Sight system though and thought it was a really cool way of story telling.

I'm surprised nobody has done it since.

SII is still the greatest - but people who haven't given Suiko V a chance really need to do so.

Digital only.

Yay.

They may as well not have fucking bothered.

Embrace the future, Lard.

Fuck no. Heinlein and Bradbury were wrong. The future is terrible.

Now, to the anti-consumer accusation, that was in relation to a rumor about a game that wasn't even announced yet.  Click-bait articles were circling the web before Just Cause 3 was even announced.  That's called fishing for page views and retweets.  There's no news story there.  Are we supposed to have a news article for every idea that happens behind closed doors?  How can we be outraged over ideas and thoughts?  Hell, that's outrage over POTENTIAL ideas and POSSIBLE thoughts.  Wait until there's actually news before reaching for the torches.


Screen shots come out showing the game had microtransactions.

The studio developing the game tweets "Micro-transactions, subscriptions, and other biz models will be the next generation of games. It is that simple".

www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCYQrAIoAzAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.neogaf.com%2Fforum%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D722389&ei=bKh8VJCbGYLLoASx9ICABw&usg=AFQjCNEDSx0c48a8SplGo1Jo0hxGcslsIw&bvm=bv.80642063,d.cGU

And you're calling it faux outrage? Doesn't matter whether the game was out or not, people have a right to be upset about anti-consumer practices like that.

And you calling people entitled for it *is* anti-consumer.

Also I can see why you'd think we hate JRPGs. All that time spent talking about how much I love Persona Q, Kingdom Hearts, Type-0, Valkyria Chronicles, and our lengthy discussion of FFXV definitely give that impression.


Not what I said, but it's easier to make a smart ass comment than actually read.

The whole PC Masterrace bullshit of "anything is good ..... as long as it's on steam - otherwise it sucks" is just passe and lame.

First it was nothing but how much you hate JRPGs, now it's just "JRPGs need to be on PC".

It's just tiresome.

And by the way, calling the reaction to what looked full on micro-transactions in Just Cause 3 as "faux outrage" is horse shit and anti-consumer.

I'm torn. I want to tell you what you want to hear since you're listening to us, but I basically guarantee the Steam love ain't going anywhere.

Sorry!

It's too bad you guys seem more interested in pushing an agenda than talking about games.

Guys can we please stop with the Steam circlejerk?

It's hard enough to avoid around other parts of the internet. This used to be the one place I could avoid it.

Gaming heaven.

Diablo 3

Are you playing on PS3?

Played Assassins Creed 4 today. I can't believe those fucking controls haven't changed from the first game. Half the game is really fun and half the game makes me want to take out the disc and snap it in half.

Also played EO Untold today. On the fouth dungeon. Say what you will about the DS games, but I really like where EO 4 and the remake have taken the series. It's still hard, it's just a little more story driven.

Uh, I think that Symphonia 2 is one of the worst Tales games, and Symphonia 1 is only beloved because the GameCube had so few RPGs.  Not even in my top 5 for the series.  But whatever, a lot of people really love Symphonia and would probably recommend it above all others.  Differing preferences. 

It sounds like an FFX/X-2 thing. Well, I'll try and keep an open mind.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Etrian Odyssey V and EO Mystery Dungeon Announced on: November 29, 2014, 07:24:54 AM
Speaking of which - is Persona Q any good?

I didn't pay much attention to it because it looked like another cash in.

Now I'm hearing it Etrian Odyssey (which I love) combined with Persona (which I like but am sick of).

So I picked up Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil at Futureshop for $20 today, that will keep me busy during Xmas break.

I also picked up the Tales of Symphonia HD collection on a whim because it was 15 bucks and everyone here keep going on about how good Tales games are.

This better not suck!

Wow, a lotta hate for the AC series

Deservedly so.

I played the first one, and it actually made me angry at how bad it was.

I've never gone back to the series. Just terrible, terrible games.
