Re: Final Fantasy I - XV

Good to hear, but I'm not fussed over it - I'm busy w/ Persona 5 royal and in no rush. C&R has plenty of hours left in my podcast feed as is

Re: Final Fantasy I - XV

My FF history is a bit all over the place, and thinking on it, I've never actually beaten a mainline game. I will say people should totally give X-2 a chance for the gameplay. Super fun. I ended up over my friend's house after school, and between him and his brother they had alot of square stuff, wh...

Re: Donkey Kong Country

It's definitely still a good game, yeah. It's been a while since I played them through, but the music, graphics, and worldbuilding the first two, especially have were a good deal. In terms of aging well I can't really speak on, but it seems that Super Meat Boy is to platformers what dark souls is to...

Re: Donkey Kong Country

So the biggest thing i remember from this is getting stuck pretty early which was frustrating because then you'd have to pass the controller on death at the daycare. Between that and the mine cart levels, never got very far. But the kicker is, I didn't realize as a dumb kid you held B and after your...

Re: Chrono Trigger

Interesting stuff, folks. In seeing the fallout before and after XV released, I didn't really get that vibe. XV had some huge pain points as far as I heard, but at the same time now that y'all've got me thinking about it, the one main podcast I listened to REALLY liked to put down squeenix RPGS(they...

Re: Chrono Trigger

Hmm, Alex, you have me questioning what I meant myself, lol. I guess specifically, they seem to have been chasing the past with XIII's MC being designed after cloud, and we've had 2 not-chrono trigger games done by chrono people which didn't really win hearts or minds. We do see them actually win he...

Re: Chrono Trigger

I got this on the DS and I can't remember if I knew beforehand it was a snes game, but it felt like age hadn't hurt it at all! Timeless. And an actual good time travel story. It's true what they say lightning only strikes once, sadly - chrono cross, setsuna, ffxiii, etc. But with ff7r's success, doe...

Re: Brütal Legend

It's a shame people didn't get on with this, and with It's troubled tale this is probably the last we'll see of it. I got it MUCH later after everyone else, I think in a humble bundle.

TemTem

I was made aware of TemTem some time ago, but I probably should've been previously. Although I was once a Pokemon fan, the stagnation of the series and impossibility of actually catching them all ultimately made me conflicted and eroded my goodwill. The Professors tasked me with completing the Poked...

Re: Videogame News

Blizzard games are worth a shot, though their bowing to the chinese may be a turnoff for some at this point. They (were) kings of iteration, taking an already done concept and going near perfection with it. Not exaggerating, I spent most most of my teenage years playing WCIII and WOW. Ah, reminiscin...

Re: All things Darkstalkers (aka Vampire)

The last we've heard of this series is 'Darkstalkers' isn't dead', which, ironically may have been the true death knell for this series. The man who proclaimed this series would live on has left Capcom. Its a shame so many other fighting game devs seem to be flourishing, and even capcom's non-fighti...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

"Oh, I wish I had an xbox to play Fallout New Vegas 2, oh right, Switch has gamepass" I can't see Switch ever having Gamepass. You say that, but scuttlebutt has them working closely. We're in a weird Era where everyone's playing nice except Sony and apple. https://www.eurogamer.net/articl...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Well, M$ has sworn off exclusivity, and already they've stated bethesda gems may or may not be exclusive. I wouldn't worry too much, with gamepass and their pc support, they're more concerned with you subscribing to gamepass than actually having an xbox. This is all super interesting, and in theory,...

Re: Gotham Knights & Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Sidenote: Interesting it's taking place in Metropolis. Baby steps for a Superman game? Is it? Which one, Suicide Squad? I didn't realise that. From what we know Suicide is taking place in Metropolis. In truth, if we are really going to kill the "Justice League" I'd imagine you'd travel be...
