Re: The PlayStation 4 fan thread.

CanisWolfred

Eh, Open-World is popular right now. So long as its good, it can leave a good first impression. However...Mass Effect: Andromeda was the first open-world game for its studio, and we saw how much of a mess that led to, so you're right that it's a risk. I guess we'll just have to wait 'n' see. They sure didn't give us much to speculate on yet...

Re: Games You Recently Beat?

@RR529 And even then, I think there are better options, like...

...holy crap, nevermind, there's hardly anything! Everything I could think of was for the DS! o_O

What the heck happened? You got 7th Dragon III and the then kiddy stuff on the level of Little Battlers...I guess SMT: Soul Hackers also counts, but with a supernatural twist? That's so weird...

Re: Games You Recently Beat?

Took a break from Overwatch for once and booted up the Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken. I'm really surprised to find how much care went into the character interactions and stages in this game. It literally oozes charm so far. I'm sort of sorry I gave it so much flak when before. Granted, it helped that I played through the arcade version with Elena and Dudley, who were the reasons I bought this in the first place. I did have the PS3 version at one point, but sold it for some reason...kind of regret that, since the graphics took a big hit when they put it on the portable. I mean, they tried to make up for it by adding 12 characters, and more features than I will ever use, but ho boy is it blocky...I normally don't complain about graphics, but considering I've seen the PS3 version, it was definitely off-putting at first. I also don't exactly know how to switch characters? That's sort of my fault for skipping the tutorial, I should've known it'd be important. I kept doing it by accident, so it must be some sort of combo that's easy to pull off. Too bad it eats into your super meter if you do it mid-combo, though...only got to use a super attack once the entire time. It also cost me a win-streak, although it was against the boss, so it probably would've happened, anyways...

Oh, and one more thing: The gem system still seems like hot garbage...but ignorable, I guess? I never really bother min-maxing in games, so I seem to be fine just leaving everyone on their defaults...I guess I'll find out in Endless mode whether or not it makes a difference...

Re: Xbox One/Xbox 360 Thread

CanisWolfred

@MsJubilee It's also one of the rare Xbox exclusives I care about, too. I hope it's at least decent whenever it releases. It sounds like they wanted to do some physics stuff, so mabe they want the launch state to be better than Just Cause 3, Mercenaries 2, [insert buggy disaster here] that came before it.

Re: Sonic Mania

CanisWolfred

@BLP_Software Dude, you are reading way too much into the story here...it's "Sonic Mania" and more or less is billed as a remix album of a game to celebrate an anniversary date. The story wasn't a priority. It seriously just sounds like you're nitpicking. :/

Re: What Game are YOU currently playing?

CanisWolfred

@Ralizah Well, to be fair, Dragon Quest is the game every other JRPG was inspired by. It "differentiates" itself by holding to its traditions. Just something to think about, since at no point will it ever "go beyond" what's expected of the genre, no real twists or wrinkles to the formula. Yet, personally, I also don't think that's a bad thing. It's more like Pokemon, where it just has to further refine that formula, rather than try to break away or reinvent it.

Re: The Goodbye/Vacation Thread

CanisWolfred

@Phazon Ogo's right, everyone here generally gets along. From what I've read of your comments, you came in with a generally disrespectful and abrasive attitude, to the point where the moderators had to reprimand you several times. And yet, instead of taking it as a sign that you should calm down and be more considerate to your fellow users who were already engaging in polite conversation, it seems that you instead are taking it as a personal attack, and decided to leave instead of changing your own perspective and behavior. So yes, in your own words: you will not be missed. This was indeed a good forum, and thankfully, your actions have failed to disrupt that. Good day sir.

Re: What Game are YOU currently playing?

CanisWolfred

@Ralizah Yeah, I've noticed that. I dunno, have you played any other Dragon Quest game, like 6 or 7? Or even 9? In comparison, it has much more defined and interesting characters and way better pacing to its story. It was the peak of the series, IMO: It was a pleasant adventure with likeable characters, a large, explorable overworld (remember, that was sort of going away back on the PS2, and even PS3). Then again, I still have trouble comprehending your problems with Xenoblade, so I dunno what else to tell you...stop taking praise at face value and compare what the stated strengths of certain games are to your personal values when it comes to RPGs? That's all I got.

Before they updated it. Which they did. Repeatedly.

So I noticed. XD My system spent roughly half an hour downloading the updates before I could even launch the game (disk version). I'm afraid the game would become quite repetitive before I maxed out each character, and I'm not exactly willing to invest that many hours when I have so many other games to play.

Yeah, I don't think I could handle that either...which is why I haven't played it yet...

Sometimes I may read a review, but often I find many reviews nowadays to be highly opinionated and too personal.

...isn't that the point, though? To hear their opinions so you get an idea of what works and what doesn't, compare them to your previous experiences so you can have a more informed judgment before buying a product?

@CanisWolfred Yeah, you only have one save file in The Millennium Girl.

You might want to try EO Untold 2. From what I've played of it, the characters are more likable (if still tropey), and it has 8 save files.

That's good to hear. I've been hemming and hawing that one for a while now...

Started watching Aldnoah.Zero on Netflix, and while I wasn't sure what to expect going in (other than it's a mecha of some sort), I'm really liking it.

I'm not too attached to any of the characters yet, and haven't been a huge fan of the Martian mechs so far, I like the looks of the Earth's, I really dig the world it's set in, and how the protagonists are outgunned and have to win through strategy.

Yeah, that's a great one. I'll admit that I only ever got attatched to a few characters, but it gets better in that regard by the second season.

Re: Are there too many "retro-syle" games coming out?

@CanisWolfred Out of curiosity: What is in your opinion the biggest failure in that respect?

Hell if I know. I don't actually go out of my way to play games that are clearly a rip-off of some other game, unless it actually looks good - let alone bother to remember the names of the failures. I guess that's sort of my point here - this is hardly uncommon, we just don't normally give a damn, and only remember the ones that look like they had potential. We shouldn't be asking ourselves, "are there too many retro-inspired games?" We should be asking what it is about these games that work, and what doesn't. Which others have luckily caught onto, btw. I'm just suggesting a slight topic change, I guess.

I mean, if you want to talk about the extreme flood of indie games in general, that's an easier topic to approach. A lot of "retro games" are made by indie developers, which there are a lot more in gener nowadays. I'd argue a bigger problem than the amount of 8-bit style games that clearly have no effort in them, is the amount of "asset flipping" on Steam, where developers pre-bought assets and tech demoes, and sell them as if they're unique games, wuthout actually doing anything to them. Seriously, it does not even get lazier than this. Or hey, I could even bring up the disasters that most mobile app stores are positively flooded with. Seriously, I've said it before, but I'm kind of mazed how lucky we are as Nintendo gamers that we never have to deal with these kinds of problems to the degree that everyone else does. We simply got, like, two very annoying devs, a few heart-felt attempts from people who have no idea what they're doing, and 5/10's. Seriously, there's a reason the scale goes lower...sometimes it just gets that bad...

@CanisWolfred Well, you unlock the highlander and gunner classes for use in Classic mode when you finish the story mode.

Not worth it, imo. Pre-established characters and intrusive story-related sequences go against the unique identity EO established for itself over the years.

I would be perfectly fine with it if the established characters were likeable and the story seemed interesting, at least, since they give the option for both story and classic modes. But I was immediately put off by the characters, and the story started with enough by-the-numbers tropes that I don't think I'd really bother with it, especially since I think you can only have one save, regardless of which mode you're playing...
