Re: Our next podcast recording (7.11.21): 494 - Final Fantasy VII Remake / Intergrade

So with the extra time, I decided to go through hard mode in addition to finishing intermission. Looking back at my previous notes: Still having camera troubles, and in fact both in intermission and in the main game some enemies seem to specifically exploit this(last boss of intermission, rarer ghos...

Re: 494 - Final Fantasy VII Remake / Intergrade

Making Shinra responsible for the bombings of reactor number 1 does not make any sense from story perspective. I'm a bit fuzzy on all the details, but I believe it's said they wanted to blame avalanche and restart the war w/ the (wutai?). You're still right in that they could've killed them and don...

Re: All things Resident Evil (Biohazard)

I haven't played Resident Evil 8, but I watched Matt McMuscles playthrough, and it seemed really weird. I admit I'm not the biggest Resident Evil head, and my experience with the series is limited to MVC2/3. Some thoughts: While it RE8 reviewed well, it seems to be more of an action game than a horr...

Re: The King of Fighters series

So KOF15's full roster was announced and release given(2/17/2022), and it looks like there's 2 black ladies which I'm a bit excited about. Most importantly they're featuring rollback: https://www.gameinformer.com/gamescom-2021/2021/08/25/the-king-of-fighters-xv-has-rollback-netcode-is-ready-to-shatt...

Re: Do you binge play video games or take your time?

This is an interesting question for me, because I play so many games that can't be 'binged' in terms of finishing them(mobile crapola/fighting games). I do tend to fall in love with games on first play, and end up obsessing over them. That being said, most recently I did mainline Guilty Gear Strive ...

Re: 482 - The King of Fighters series

I started with KOF 2002 Unlimited Match: So this is my first time playing KOF, and as per usual with fighting games I had to do a bit of searching on what exactly to do. I kind of felt like a kid in a candy shop seeing so many characters I’ve never played, and many I’ve never seen before. The combo ...

Re: Self-imposed rules on buying games?

I don't really have any strict 'rules', but even back when we got our first real humble bundles, I realized games were so cheap, and I was gonna have more than I could ever play. That combined with the fact I've basically always played games that can't be finished(mmos, fighting games, mobas), I rea...

Re: Guilty Gear series

The only downside is the weird 'Connecting to Server' loading screen at the start of the game which goes on a bit too long for my liking. That is because the game was very very hot out of the oven. It apparently tries to connect to japan's servers a whopping 127 times(https://www.reddit.com/r/Guilt...

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog

My big takeaway from this one is apparently there's a yuzo koshiro sonic soundtrack I need to listen to? But on the subject, as much as sonic games have faltered, they've been pretty solid musically. I probably don't need to go into too much detail w/ the sound of play special out there, but even co...
