No, I'm not "just wrong". You just like to be deliberately contrarian, particularly when it's something I post.

It would sell to people our age, sure.  But our niche may not exactly push the kind of numbers that a mainstream demographic would in order for the game to recoup its costs; and we're not the mainstream demographic.  

The mainstream crowd (especially the teenage mainstream crowd) outnumbers us and they have more time to play games (because their spare time isn't spend adulting) and more disposable income (since they're not budgeting adult expenses like mortgages).  

You're acting like this is going to be marketed toward the mainstream, COD crowd. It's not and it was never going to be.
There's this idea that people are too stupid or ADD riddled to take 5 seconds and take a turn in a fight, and it's complete and utter bullshit.

Persona is completely turn based and that's huge in NA. This idea that JRPGs *have* to be action based now is is a misconception at best but more likely a straight up lie.

I agree that in the gaming business (and it is that- a business) traditional turn-based will not translate to big sales or mainstream success.

Pretty silly to say the FF7 remake wouldn't sell if it were turn based. Of course it would.

God, the amount of pessimism surrounding this game is sickening. 5 years ago, everyone and I mean EVERYONE would have wet their pants over this news. Nowadays it's just cool o hate on shit we like. Seriously, I can't fathom how people are having anything negative to say about this game that is in it's infantile stages of development. I shouldn't be surprised though, seeing as it's the norm for people who are content and happy to simply be happy and not say anything, but those who want to be negative can't shut the fuck up out about how it's a terror and an abomination and a travesty before it's even a fucking game. I get that we can all have opinions, but for fucks sake how about waiting til we have something more than spoken ideas and a pretty set of cinematic trailers to actually have a basis for an opinion?


They've confirmed it's not turnbased and something that looks more like FF13's battle system - which was their least popular entry in the series. Now they're basically turning it into FF 13-4 instead of actual turn based combat, which it should be.

Then people were pissed off because Square clearly knew it was going to be episodic when the game was announced but didn't say anything. They let everyone get all excited and then said "Oh by the way, you're only getting chunks of it at a time", which is a ridiculous way to announce it.

Now they're talking about changing content because things are "more sensitive" now, so it looks like we're going to get content chopped out of the game, or at least altered til it's unrecognisable.

At this point, I'd rather not have it. The entire thing has been a giant clusterfuck and I'd rather they focus on the Tokyo RPG Factory games, and polishing FFXV to make sure it doesn't suck.

What's the point of having a remake of a game if the game is unrecognisable to the original?

Personal preferences aside I don't know if I'd say that I think Cross is better designed than Trigger, but the CT fandom from back in the day definitely rubbed me the wrong way and that REALLY soured my opinion on Trigger for a long time.

This is my experience with a lot of fandoms though. I mean I guess it's silly letting the fandom ruin a thing for me, but that's just how it goes i guessssss.

Yep - the reaction to Legend of Mana was almost exactly the same as it was to CC. Instead of looking at what the game was, they complained the game wasn't a redo of the last game. It's funny, I still remember reading the review for LoM on IGN and thinking "This guy is just whining that the game isn't Secret of Mana" before I had even played either game.

I gave FFX-2 an honest try.....but I got 45 minutes in and I just had to turn it off. It's still not as bad as FF 8 though. And FF13, while a disappointing entry in the series, is not as bad as the hyperbole suggests. It's just kind of dull.

The Last of Us has middling (at best) gameplay that's largely unchanged from Uncharted 1 and an incredibly stupid main character that should have been shot for willingly let humanity die. All because he couldn't get over his irresponsibility as a parent and letting his kid get shot. A mediocre game with a an infuriating ending.

And I'm in the Chrono Cross is better than Trigger camp.

I thought the bit where

the smugglers showed up and they were getting chased by CG blobs was unnecessary and dragged a bit. It was the only bit that felt like it was from an Abrams movie

Otherwise, yeah, the pacing was pretty good.

As for characters:
Poe's was non existent. That was disappointing.

And that was one of the first things I was thinking when watching: "Hey, the storm troopers are hitting stuff!"

Some asshole has been running around on youtube videos spoiling a huge part of the movie...not gonna share since I don't suck but it was depressing as fuck. I hope he's wrong.

Sorry you got spoiled man.

I hid anything remotely spoilery to avoid trying to upset people.

I've been staying away from Star Wars stuff, including trailers, for the last couple of months.
73  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: The NEW New Star Wars [s]Trilogy[/s] Thread on: December 17, 2015, 11:22:41 AM
Yeah, as far as I know.

There was a thing on 60 minutes about the movie last week and it showed Williams doing the score.

I saw Star Wars tonight. I will be deliberately vague.

I liked:

The story and characters overall.

The main villain

The humour

The cameos

The way they set up the next two films

I didn't like:

One character's non existent personality (I had the feeling they were going to be the Han Solo of the new trilogy and I was wrong. They ended up being incredibly paper thin and bland)

The continual nods to the old films as in copy/pasting elements

One character's death but I get why they did it.

One character's reveal 

Indifferent to:

The soundtrack - nothing really stood out as being new or memorable.

Overall, pretty good.

I'm not a fan of Abrams films so I went in with muted expectations and came out pleasantly surprised.
