Re: Games Completed 2021

I think that's enough time to play the often-backlogged Titanfall 2 that just got added... YES Titanfall 2 is amazing! It's a breezy campaign so you should have more than enough time, and the multiplayer might be getting some action as well (and, speaking as someone who never plays multiplayer mode...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Finish #9 - Final Fantasy 9 Love this game, and the themes still resonate. It's my favourite FF game, and Vivi's story is still my favourite, though I had forgotten how much Zidane's resonates with Vivi's in the story. Bittersweet that it's over, because I was really enjoying replaying it. Cannot re...

Re: Games Completed 2021

My #8 for the year is....Final Fantasy 7. I've tried to go through it twice before and I twice got bored/demotivated because I didn't know where to go or what I was supposed to do. My one big criticism is that it doesn't signpost what you are supposed to do next well enough. That being said, I can f...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been incredibly busy with school, so just been sneaking in some Puzzle Bobble and/or Super Bomber Man when I need a break. The worst of my assignments are over for now, so I can get back into FF7 and finish it for the first time.

I played the Project Triangle Tactics demo and I say to you: No. You are wrong.

One game doesn't equal a great Direct.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I'm completely fed up with Japan and Asia getting physical releases while we get only digital. There's no reason not to release physically in the West if a physical is already being done and the translation is finished. I swear pc gaming (Primarily steam) has done more damage to the industry than EA...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm in London (Ontario). PNP is... PNPgamesonline.com - they're based out of Winnipeg, and they've been consistently great to me. They carry a lot of really obscure stuff, and for fair prices. Their used inventory is pretty bomb too... Stock is volatile but prices are great. I didn't even know Shop...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Was the store PNP, or VGP? Both are great, I have started going to those guys instead of Amazon, even if it means paying shipping. PNP also acts as a distributor for Limited Run, so they often have stock of stuff that's otherwise eBay-only. My local, Microplay, is also looking into an online storef...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I know there's a lot of Chinese- and Korean-made RPGs that feature mainland China and other parts of East Asia... Koei's covered it extensively too. But those almost never get localized for the West. I bought a couple of those in Hong Kong. Sword and Fairy 6 seemed kind of low budget and rubbish bu...

Re: Games Completed 2021

I really want that Grandia collection, but the price is really high for what it is. Been waiting for a good sale, to no avail - and I'd love to have it physical, but a Limited Run release only drives the price up higher. Did any trendy Euro publishers pick that one up for physical? No, sadly, but I...

Ubisoft liked it, they lifted it for Child of Light.
Now that's interesting. Ubisoft published Grandia 2 on PS2.

Re: Games Completed 2021

I remember adoring the battle system on Grandia II - is it still a highlight? Yes and no. The combat system is essentially the same, but how you level up is different. In Grandia 1 you level up through using the spells. In Grandia 2 you get coins in which you can spend on your spells and special mo...

Re: Games Completed 2021

6. Grandia 2.

Not as fun as the first, as it lacks the first's spirit of adventure. It's got a fairly interesting interesting story about man vs. religion and how to stand on your own. Soundtrack isn't nearly as good as the first game though.

4 & 5 - on the same day no less!

Untitled Goose Game - Fun, but overhyped.

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince - Beautiful visuals, beautiful music, some super dodgy jumping.

Re: 481 - Xenoblade Chronicles

I was one of those that modded my Wii to break the region locking to play this game (and a few others from Europe). I also bought this day one when it came out in North America because I wanted to support JRPG releases in the West. While I generally prefer turn based RPGs, this game's battle system ...

Re: Games Completed 2021

3. Gris
Quite a stunning game visually, with a beautiful soundtrack.

The ending was a bit abrupt and I didn't see it coming, but it was definitely worth a playthrough, just to experience it.
