Re: Hong Kong

I lived in China for about six years and it was pretty much the greatest time of my life up to that point, certainly changed me forever and I miss a lot about it almost every single day. What part of China were you in? I've been to Shenzhen, across the border, and to Nanjing (which was beautiful) a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

They just announced yesterday that Ikaruga is getting a physical release in the West. :| I did a thorough sweep of the net looking for any concrete news on a physical release before I bought the digital version. I swear they were waiting for the money to leave my account before signing the damn con...

I've been playing World of Final Fantasy, and it is much, *much* better than I expected.

I would even go so far as to say this should have been the real FF15.

Re: Shmups

Has anyone else picked up RXN Raijin?

I think it's available digitally overseas. I've been picking up more shooters here......trying to get better and mostly failing.

Hong Kong

Hey everyone. Please keep HK in your thoughts right now - Wednesday was awful. Carrie Lam, the leader of HK blamed the police brutality (which was severe) on protestors. The extradition bill (which is the cause of the whole issue) has been suspended, but not canceled. People came out today for Fathe...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Total fucking rubbish that was. SMT V is vapourware at this point, and it was the bloody game I bought my Switch for. Add a digital only Mana collection and the whole thing was just a massive disappointment.

Re: 373: Final Fantasy X

The thing I liked about FFX is the lack of the open map. Perhaps this is one of the most controversial aspects of the game, compared to older titles in the series but for me it really works. The whole idea of the game is that you're on a road trip, going from place to place for Yuna to be able to co...

I always thought a Dr Who point click adventure would be a good fit for the licence. Bonus points if the story spans the different eras of the show.
I like this idea a lot.

I would like a full on proper Doctor Who game.

That or an Obsidian style Star Trek RPG.

Re: Our next podcast recording (11.3.19) - 360: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I've never been able to finish a Zelda game and this one was no different. I should have known better than to listen to the hype on a Zelda game, but I fooled myself into thinking "this will be the one I finish" when I bought it and my Switch at the same time. I was playing, and enjoying, BOTW until...

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (13.4.19) - 365: Final Fantasy IX

Vivi is my favourite character in FF. His existential crisis and search for meaning in his life was extremely impactful to me, given some of the themes of life and death in the game, even quantified in the theme song "Melody of Life". We don't get to see JRPGs being so introspective, especially at t...

Re: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

The problem is he keeps hitting me in close quarters. There are specific rooms I need to get to, to progress the story and he keeps following me in and just beating the crap out of me. In a room where there are him *and* two other zombies in the same place. And I don't have that many healing items r...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Charming, wonderful and truly a title that shows how VR can provide a very special type of game. Basically the title uses individual sets that you can look around and move your mouse through but makes it all come to life so much better than if it was just a standard 2D representation. The way it us...

Re: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

I managed to find a US copy in Hong Kong with all of the lovely violence intact. I have started Leon first, and I am genuinely surprised at just how violent it is. And nobody seems to be batting an eye. I was expecting more of an uproar about it because it's "realistic" and whatnot. Not complaining ...

How did you enjoy Moss? I've been teetering towards getting PSVR but I'm not totally sure yet. Moss is one of the games that has me almost convinced.

Re: Games Completed 2019

I finished a lovely little game called State of Mind. It's a kind of point and click adventure game. No combat. Some light puzzles. An interesting cyberpunk story and an amazing soundtrack. The very definition of a good "B tier" game. Worth a try if you like point and click, adventure and/or cyberpu...
