Currently eating a straight up avocado by itself. This tastes /way/ more eggy than durian.

Let's not do this again.

I actually have a copy of Xillia 2 but never played the first - should I play it anyway? I've heard mixed reviews from friends.

Yeah, definitely play the first.  Good story, great characters, really awesome battles.  Xillia 1's colosseum is close to maybe my all-time favorite arena/colosseum in any RPG.  Really insanely fun (even if it is WAY TOO HARD when you first unlock it).
I don't disagree about much here, but Xillia 1 is very easy to dislike after a while. You may find yourself wanting to not bother continuing into 2 after a playthrough, which would be very sad as I find 2 to be very much the better game, but 1 is still a great game itself.

Haha - I have no opinion on which does better, but I can say that I never go to Game Ranking.  Don't have a particular reason other than I became acquainted with Metacritic first.

The dinner scene mostly freaks me out because of the... way their head's move.

Heads don't move like that.

... @ Thousand Arms video, I miss 32-bit era aesthetics :( Nobody really knew what they were doing yet so things were just so... strange and creative and maybe kind of wrong looking but in an endearing way.

Sometimes modern video game graphics are like listening to really over-produced 80s pop music: it's pretty but there's not grit, everything's sterile, everything's too uniform, and Phil Collins keeps showing up at the worst times.

I remember finding Thousand Arms laugh-out-loud funny at times.  Most scenes with Bandiger were hilarious, but this one is classic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SANRhLOWjg

I already talked about Thousand Arms elsewhere in this thread (though I don't remember if I mentioned really liking its music), but since we're talking about video game humor, I figured I'd give it another nod because popular opinion of the game is that it's stupid, but I found it truly funny.  I'm trying to think of another RPG that made me laugh out loud the way this one did.

Man, if we all met in real life for a big ol' RPGFan party I'm willing to bet we'd all start doing the dinner dance when food's ready and recreating memorable scenes with each other, like the laughing scene.  Hell yeah, I'd act out the laughing scene with someone.

omg I think the dinner scene made me stop playing Infinite Undiscovery
Is that what that is!?  God, it's SO FUNNY!  The way the other guy watches them and then just enthusiastically joins right in while the girl just watches, exasperated.... oh man, that is comedy gold. I'm giggling all over again just thinking about.

Yeah I always thought it was funny too.  Gamers have a weird sense of humour?
I didn't really find the Disgaea games terribly funny as far as its story mode goes (the item descriptions were great though).
The scene is hilarious...it's the rest of the game and character development that is just god awfulm

Knights in the Knightmare was a euroshmup.
I am not familiar with that term. O.o

An indie shoot 'em up made in not-Japan.

Or in other words, a European fan of Touhou decided to make their own Touhou, but with Blackjack and Hookers.

Not so much indie shmups as they were like, German-made SHMUPs typically for the Amiga that had weird gameplay mechanics that didn't really work with how shmups work, weird /movement/ that doesn't really work with how shmups work, and an emphasis on style over playing sanely.

Usually you'd see stuff like item shops, really elaborate weapon systems, ammo, weapon overheating, overzealous pixel perfect collision, inertia that made precise movement impossible, etc. It's kind of an overused term that people throw around to mean "bad shmup" but it's more "really, really deviant shmup," so you'll see people calling really traditional Japanese shmups that weren't good euroshmups even though there's nothing euro about them.

Also for realsies, there are some realllllly eurshmuppy Japanese shmups that were exceedingly well regarded, like Radiant Silvergun, Einhänder, Ginga Force, Lords of Thunder, Hellsinker, etc. so using it to /strictly/ mean bad clearly doesn't work !!

Knights in the Knyghtsläyer has a lot of shmup mechanics going on in the sense that the user interface is a shmup, although it edges into euroshmup territory, in the classic sense of a euroshmup, because A) you have wonky movement since the stylus isn't... entirely accurate. B) the enemy attack patterns are awkward. C) Weird hit detection! D) Weird behavior when you actually do get hit!!! and then E) the metagame is actually that it's a tower defense game and then the META meta game has you like breeding dead guys.

So Nights in White Satin is a euroshmup both in the sense that it's way, waaaay deviant in terms of its shmup mechanics, that its shmup mechanics ultimately don't work that well, and then the story's got this distinctly German feel to it because there's werewolves and nothing makes sense.

oh, so I was just thinking about this the other day, and you know what never EVER got a soundtrack release, even post-digital age with EGG?

Illusion of Gaia.

Soul Blazer and Terranigma have soundtracks, but not Illusion of Gaia. That's crazy. Though I'd still argue Terranigma had the strongest OST, I'd love to own the trilogy.

(yet one more reason why they should put them as a trilogy on 3DS or something, and then release a trilogy OST)
