Pillars of Eternity just came out, and I'm really motivated to play it.

Yet at the same time, I'm really motivated to try out a bunch of 80's computer RPGs like Ultima 1-6 and the Gold Box games...especially after TSI post-poned their kickstarter...

Huge number of stats? What stats? Last I checked, there were only 5 stats, and they don't seem to actually matter. Elemental weaknesses and resistances are more important, and they're usually spelt out for you. If it says it's weak to lightning, it's weak to lightning. If it says it repels fire, it repels fire. That sort of stuff.

I seriously hope I can get over the gorey and often disturbingly gothic imagery enough to finally play Bloodborne. It might be an easier pill to swallow once I actually get into the groove of things, but the same could probably be said about Soul Sacrifice, and I still can't get myself to start that one up...it just looks like a freaky nightmare I've had before...

Also, This Channel is probably relevant. I mean, it can be really weird, but I really like animated music videos and these can be really creative (and sometimes weird), and are generally well-animated. And there are lots of anthropomorphic characters in a lot of the videos. So that's a plus.

Pardon the triple post, but Vivienne Medrano is a really good artist and animator. I really liked her Thesis Film, and she even made me want to tolerate Ke$ha's Die Young. Also, she has a really cool webcomic called Zoophobia that's...down right now, so I can't link to it. :P But once it's back up, you guys should check it out some time.

Also, some random art from various artists:

Pizza Party
Curling up with a good book For those curious, the artist is Kishibi. Most of his other art is very much not SFW, though...look him up at your own risk, I'm not linking his page...
Need a (Magical) Light?
Vidya Games
I must know what "Poppy Possum" is NOW (Ironically, bittenhard is one of my favorite artists despite most of his work being very NSFW)

Yeah: Don't do the early side quests right away. When you first get the opportunity to talk to demons (as in, the very first time you're given the opportunity in the game), grind a little and get a full party if you can. You'll need it. The first area's surprisingly tough.

Also, don't give Jiraes money. Ever.

For 50 episodes? Naw man, MSRP would've been $50 minimum, though most retailers would've shaved off quite a bit for pre-orders. While this release is missing the Japanese uncut version, it's a damn good price for what it is.

Yeah, weight aside, I thought the Phat was the best, and certainly got the most use out of me until I got the 3DS (and for a while even then).

Oh hey I love going to the CeX shop...so long as nobody sees me go in.

People might think I'm an Xbot or something...

@crimsoncavalier

What's the difference between older generations any now? Because a lot of games over the years didn't really require that kind of stuff you define as substance. That's where I'm confused. Most games in general don't really meet that criteria. Not to say your definition is bad, of course, simply saying that I don't think you have the timeline quite in perspective.

The more likely reality is that I have a very different definition of "substance" than you.

While substance is subjective, it's useless to talk about it unless you layout what your definition of substance is. Clarify, man.

@CanisWolfred - Oh, do you mean because I stayed up so late? Don't worry about that; I'm on Spring break right now. Even if I wasn't on break, I'm homeschooled, so waking up late isn't a big deal.

Ah, okay then. I figured Spring break was in April, but I've been out of school for so long, I can't really remember that sort of stuff clearly (granted, Spring Break for me just meant staying inside playing video games until the cabin fever drove me insane).

Anyways, enjoy your break, man.

This won't bury Konami in their entirety, it'll just bury the prominence of their Games Division.

Even with MGS, Games aren't their top earner.

Which is why the video kkslider linked is so damn relevent. We'll need a miracle to save those poor neglected franchises. :P

I have no idea what "dudebro" actually means. But if we're talking about a certain demographic that each respective console is trying to cater to, there can be no denying that PlayStation and Xbox are vying for the same demographic while Nintendo is not. Nintendo decided to not engage in the arms race past the GCN era because they saw it as a failure. Since then, it has been Sony and Microsoft going at each other in that sense.

When a game uses its visuals to make up for lack of gameplay, lack of quality, story, etc., that is a shame. However, it's a trend that is happening right before us. Let's not kid ourselves, the majority of games are marketed as "look at the awesome new graphics". Now, great visuals does not mean a game is automatically lacking in gameplay or storytelling, or any of the things that make a game good (great graphics do not make a game good). One can have a great-looking title that is a good game, but one can't have a good title that has bad gameplay.

I don't think anyone can argue that the marketing trends are leaning towards a certain demographic that prefers the latest and greatest visuals over gameplay. That doesn't mean these people do not also enjoy gameplay, but when purchasing a game, gameplay is not their main focus. It seems to appear that gameplay is more of a happy accident these days.

There's a reason why so many heavily marketed games, with incredibly robust budgets have gotten criticized heavily by the media and fans alike. Some people are speaking out, but when those games still sell like crazy, money speaks. And the money says "Hey, as long as we advertise with awesome CGI movies, maybe team up with Taco Bell and give away our game if you buy a chalupa, we can sell millions of copies of our crappy game, because people will get it as long as it looks good."

I mean, that demographic exists. it's vocal and boisterous and buys yearly iterations of certain franchises no matter what. As long as that demographic exists, certain companies will continue to market to them, and they will continue to give them what they want. This is a business, after all.

This is the first on-topic post we've had for the last 2 and half pages...and arguably one of the best posts in the thread. Better late than never.

Just bought Body Harvest, Space Station: Sillicon Valley, and Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, all for the N64. Now I think I'm back down to 5 games on my N64 wishlist, which means I can largely ignore the rest unless I see a good deal I have the money for.
