Re: Your Best and Worst Games of 2020 Lists

Best: Honorable Mention: Hades An absolutely fantastic game, which I hope to spend countless more hours in, but I have a hard time thinking of it as a 2020 game, because I've had it since early 2019. 4: Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Moon Studios have done it again. I wouldn't have thought it was p...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I can't figure out any way to talk about why this track is so special without spoiling the game, so I'll just say that it's wonderful, and you should play 13 Sentinels.

Re: Games of 2021: What piques your interest?

I couldn't finish the first Bravely Default because the traditional FF difficulty spikes killed any desire I had to keep going, but I Loved Bravely Second, so I'm hoping for good things from Bravely Default II . The most recent few Story of Seasons games have started to really capture the quality of...

Re: Games Completed 2020

12/22/2020 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Wow. Where do I even start? That was very likely the most confusing game I have ever played. The story has Time-travel, is told totally out of order, from 13 different viewpoints, in ways that very often make little to no sense. The fact that, by the end, it does s...

Re: Persona 5 Royal

Personally, Persona 5 is easily my favorite Persona game, the story, gameplay, and especially the soundtrack are all fantastic. Last surprise and and Rivers in the Desert are the obvious highlights, but I also love Beneath the Mask, Life Will Change, and a couple of the dungeon themes. I'm currently...

Re: Persona 5 Royal

The QoL tweaks and minor adjustments to the base game that Royal made were generally pretty good, but personally I felt the writing quality of the new content wasn't quite as good as the original.

How so? Spoilers: They actually don't all die. In short, time-travel shenanigans ensue, and creates some kind of new timeline where everyone survives. I'm not personally all that upset about it, I didn't really care about BotW's story anyway, but the game was marketed as a prequel, and it's really ...

Re: I am vexed by the fact the Game Boy Advance and DS second hand market is saturated by fake games

Even when the GBA was still in production it was a problem, I ended up with at least two games off Ebay that were fakes (I was like 12, I didn't know better). Nintendo customer support was kind enough to replace one of them for me when it stopped working after a week.

I definitely wasn't expecting a new Story of Seasons game so soon after the Mineral Town remake, but I'm totally here for it. I couldn't help but n...

Re: All things Fire Emblem

Yeah, even the full remake hadn't aged well 11 years ago, I suspect this will be pretty tough to play, but it's super cool, and hopefully a sign of more to come?

This. Lttp is a game that does exactly what it sets out to do, in, for my money, the best way it's possible to do it.

Re: Hades

I've been playing it since last year, the early access is the only thing I've actually spent money on in the Epic store. I love it. I love rouge-likes, but sometimes don't get along with them unless they have a decent level of inter-run progressing, and I feel like Hades hits that mark fantastically...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

As someone who'd only played SM64 sporadically in the past, I actually had a lot of fun with it, despite constantly fighting with the camera. I was honestly surprised by how easy it felt, I had very little difficulty getting 70 stars to clear it, I suspect many of the last 50 would prove more challe...

The actual game releases are mostly stuff that's been rumored for a while now, and it's hard to imagine they weren't supposed to come out sooner, but it's good to have confirmation, and 3d All-Stars in 2 weeks is awesome. OTOH, Galaxy 2 getting totally ghost...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

PS5 Full disc-based backwards compatibility from PS1 to PS4 with multiple options for upscaling, scanlines, supersampling and so on. In addition, more older PS1,2 and 3 titles being released on the store for download. The PS3 is the biggest bottleneck there, even modern PCs can't really manage soft...
