Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (8.6.19) - 373: Final Fantasy X

I never really had a problem with the voice acting, even Tidus, whom magazines and the early internet seemed ready to hate right out of the gate. I, too, will defend Teedus and the game's VO. Tidus's English voice actor did a *phenomenal* job - if you compare the Japanese performance to the English...

That mission is a notorious difficulty spike.
Don't I know it. I had to do a few skirmishes to level up and figure out there's a side of that tank to save for last. I learned a lot about the synergy between Lancers and Engineers on that mission for sure.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing Valkyria Chronicles. I hit a mission that required a few tries and banging my head to the desk, but finally got past it (it's the giant tank in chapter seven). But, the game hasn't really clicked with me yet. It's doing everything right, but there's little bits about it that annoy ...

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (8.6.19) - 373: Final Fantasy X

FInal Fantasy X was one of first games I bought with my PS2 and, along with Grand Theft Auto 3 and Metal Gear Solid 2, was a big reason I wanted the console (what a time to be a gamer...) At the time, I couldn't believe my eyes with some of the cut-scenes, that opening Blitzball match and Sin attack...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Trying to play Nioh right now, I say trying as I'm struggling a little bit.I love the look and feel on the whole but toggling stance mid fight can be a pain as is the 'Ki pulse' mechanic - I find myself forgetting as I'm too engaged in the combat . I have a feeling that this will all come together ...

Re: Videogame News

It reminds me of Golden Sun? That was a game that didn't grab me story wise, but had gorgeous graphics and a nice soundtrack to go along with solid gameplay.

Re: Videogame News

It is a gorgeous game and the music is even better. Combat is neat and satisfying and the game opens up in terms of combat options and job classes and stuff. It seems to tick all the boxes. The story side is a bit underwhelming though, to my tastes, because it's eight self-contained individual thre...

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

La Danse Macabre from Shovel Knight by Jake Kaufman pDGaqUskBRM All the levels in Shovel Knight have perfectly appropriate music to go with them, matching level design with atmosphere in a way that compliments the whole production and pays tribute to the NES adventures that came before. But, for me,...

I'm starting a new podcast called Three Nice Things, where we watch bad movies and then have to come up with three nice things to say about it! We're recording our first episodes this weekend and want to know, can you come up with a legitimate nice thing to say about the Super Mario Bros. movie or t...

Re: 369: Disney's Aladdin

I loved the SNES Aladdin when I was kid. It was one of my favorite movies then (and now) and it was a game I could play and beat fairly quickly, meaning I played through it a few times. In my later teen years, I found a copy of it and replayed it, surprised but how much I still enjoyed it. As a seve...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Ha yeah, I never went back to Blitzball either. Just never really got to grips with understanding how it worked, nor enjoyed the match I played. Your thoughts pretty much echo exactly how I felt about the game overall. I'm one of those sick people who enjoyed Blitzball and played it WAY too much du...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I'm excited for the Phoenix Wright games on Steam, for sure, but $30 is a bit high for me at the moment, will probably wait for a sale.
With Dangerous Driving, I'll definitely be taking that for a spin once I finished my replay of Burnout 3.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That Namco bundle had Pac-Man Championship Edition DX for a dollar, so I picked it up and lost a whole bunch of time in it. It's addicting, for sure, but it's such a blast. And I'm not a score chaser most of the time, but I have a few Steam friends with the game and now I'm after their scores. I got...

Re: Videogame Deals

I don't know if anyone saw, but the Namco bundle over on the Humble store is pretty good. I got Pac-Man Championship Edition DX for the $1 tier, but if you want to go up to $25, you'll get Tekken 7.

I just completed the three campaigns in Shovel Knight. What a game. I enjoyed every minute of it, enough so that I played those levels and boss fights three times, with varying degrees of difference. I actually had a lot of fun with Specter Knight. I love a good wall jump. I'm glad the game lived u...
