Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm guessing Wario Land: Shake Dimension is the same game as Wario Land: Shake It? I've never seen that box art before. I have Shake It though.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I think this boss fight alone is why some RE fans don't like this game. It has the potential to stain an otherwise great experience. Steve aside. Oh Steve. Maybe he will find redemption in resi 8. Steve didn't bother me much when I was teenager, interestingly. But revisiting the game deep into my 2...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Really glad to see that discussion of Code Veronica is coming back into vogue, even though it looks as though Capcom may have snubbed it. I will say though, I've played through Code Veronica X approximately 2.9 different times, and that Tyrant fight always throws me for a loop. Every single time. Ev...

Pretty sure that was meant to be sarcastic, guys.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Good to see classism is well and truly alive in some darker corners of the internet, very good. Anyway, I picked up FF7 on Steam - the original game - and I'm working on playing with mods... Holy heck do they ever improve this game! There's an incredible amount of detail in the backgrounds alone tha...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

See, I totally agree with the notion that the primary responsibility lies with the greedy publishers. 100%. But the one element you're not addressing is that it's not just the people who are too poor to afford games who resort to piracy. Plenty of folks who can afford them pirate them anyway becaus...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Devs should probably be focused more on greedy publishers than the poor in directing their ire. Someone is definitely removing income from the pockets of devs, but it's definitely not people who couldn't afford the games in the first place. It's no different from when a factory worker blames immigra...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Thankfully Animal Crossing is keeping me busy. After playing REmake recently, I'm aboard the train to retrying RE4 via RE2ake and REmak3. Also have FFVII remake arriving this week at some point, so I'll be playing my first Final Fantasy. Still lots to play, but definitely sad to see the release cal...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Whew. The drought begins. Should give us all time to catch up. You say that, but I'm actually more hyped for Trials of Mana on Apr. 24 than I was for FF7R. :P FF7R wasn't for me, but I also feel that the original was greatly improved with merely a few mods. Seiken Densetsu 3, on the other hand, is ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Not being able to afford something is not an excuse to pirate it. You will never convince me otherwise. Because this is my living you're talking about. Well do you gear the prices to income so that people in poorer countries can pay what they can afford? Because if you don't, you're kind of creatin...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm far, far more likely to spend $80 on a physical thing I can resell than $40 on a digital license that has no value. Honestly, I feel the same. The tangibility of physical games is of massive value in my eyes. It's not even about the potential of re-selling them, since I don't think I've sold an...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

RE: Cass I've heard a lot of very, very similar stories from folks I've met online in recent years, even people in my own country. So I have more than a few anecdotes. - I once shipped a copy of The Witcher 3 to someone on a small Dene reservation in the Northwest Territories. He sent me a really ni...

We’re not going to do the ‘because it’s digital and can be copied infinitely it has no value’ thing are we? Those of us that make the things have to eat too you know. :) That wasn't where I was going with that, but I will say, I'm far, far more likely to spend $80 on a physical thing I can resell t...

I’ve seen the Mario Kart arcade machines ‘in the wild’ a few times now, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the F-Zero ones.
The Mario Kart ones are much newer. Based on Mario Kart 8 I think?

Re: F-Zero GX

GX is a good time, but if you want the best F-Zero experience possible, I highly recommend tracking down F-Zero AX at an arcade. It's GX, but you're in this big hovercar. When you hit a wall, it jolts violently. It tilts with the motion of your car. It's one of the best arcade experiences I've ever...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I can't seem to focus on a game these days so I'm bouncing back and forth between Super Meat Boy, Dynasty Warriors 8 and Rocket League. I don't know what's going on with me, outside of being in the same apartment everyday all day. I wouldn't necessarily blame yourself, I think sometimes we just nee...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I honestly don't want to pay full price for any of their games on principle alone. Demand the quality, refuse to pay for it. You keep swinging Champ 👍🏽. Well when I exist in an economy where calling work "precarious" would be a generous compliment, dropping $80 a pop for every single infinitely-rep...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So I got tired of FF7R, but I read up on how it ends and uh... No spoilers, but not what I was expecting. Totally killed my interest in this Remake project. Y'all in for a surprise, play it til the end.

I really want to pick up Astral Chain, but I'm really quite frustrated with how belligerent Nintendo is with their price drops.
