I actually liked the setting and other things, but yes, Nadia is really good. It does get some "filler" near the end that was really stupid, but then it ends fairly well, IIRC.

Really, someone's love of more archaic game mechanics is that off-putting to you?

Oh, no, of course not. What kind of idiot do you take me for? Now that's just insulting. No, it's because I've seen his argument a thousand times, and I know that the people who say those things have nothing of value to offer and certainly aren't worth my time.

I bought Thomas Was alone for $1, so I think I'll enjoy it at least at that price.

And yeah, @Turnip_Forest, what $40-$60 retail games do you play that are actually worth the price in your mind, if "worth" seems to come down to the amount of hours you spend with it?

Don't buy U.S points from play asia, buy from Amazon. Play Asia charges a markup while Amazon you only pay the actual amount. All you need to do is write a random U.S. address in the shipping address (code is send online but they require you to provide a U.S. address in order to sell you U.S. points but since nothing is actually shipped any random address would do).

But do they give you a code like Play-Asia does? Besides, he said they didn't accept his debit card. Play-Asia accepts paypal, and might even take his card.

Lowest I've seen it is $17.99, but it might go lower next time. No tax on US PSN as far as I know.

I've been trying to ignore him for years, but he doesn't exactly make that easy...

Uhm ... I think both of you have terrible attitudes. To the first poster, literally your language doesn't even make sense. "Meh" or "bad" games from EA are COMPLETELY your opinions, not facts. You CANNOT, I repeat: CANNOT judge a large company's morality using a wide brush. Look up how many employees EA has. Are you really going to try and say that all of those people are "bad" people? Heck, no. That would be illogical, right? Well ... there you go, you're being illogical. If you don't agree with some of the decisions EA makes, that's fine, but their company is made up with just as many people who truly enjoy games and the crafting of games as any other company, including Nintendo.

EVERY company will have their decision-makers that people will disagree with and attack as "bad," but to put a blanket judgment on an entire group of people is incredibly wrong and a lesson I thought most human beings were taught when they were young.

Personally, I was just making a statement. I seriously have been trying to ignore Chrono_Cross since 2009. I think we even had an "agreement" to never talk to eachother again, but that didn't last long...he just knows exactly what to say to get my blood boiling. :/

I dislike how many indie games are incredibly short experiences. It's the main reason why I generally don't buy or support them.
$20 for a 3 hour "experience" is usually not worth it IMO.

What indie games are you playing? Not that full retail titles are automatically much longer...

Ironically death/black metal can work for me as backround music, but the moment I'm forced to actually listen to it, my ears bleed.

And yes, I like most other types of metal, so long as the lead singer doesn't sound like Cookie Monster with throat cancer...

I played the original Deus Ex a few years after it came out. It was a fantastic experience. But it was a very 'gamey' experiance sometimes (if you know what I mean).

Which for me is anything but a criticism, bearing in mind the medium we are in. Same with the original Resi over 4, same with the original Thief over the reboot. There is nothing wrong with imperfections, not game destroying ones, but the actual nature of challenging/awkward mechanics that help to add a sense of unease or complication in to the world does a lot more for me then the smooth sailing experience a lot of later series' entrants inevitably bring.

I can't even fathom how that would make a game better for anybody, but okay.

You're not comprehending any point I'm presenting.

It does matter what EA does at the end of the day. To EA. It's a company out there trying to make money (I hope this didn't surprise you), and it'll make ethical, creative decisions to make sure that happens.

Just like how it overworks its employees to rush buggy games out the door. That was certainly "ethical". Or releases a game with a rabid fanbase only to butcher it in front of them as a free-to-pay scam. That was certainly a very "creative" decision on their part.

Well, as he been mentioned Nintendo's had Mother 1 translated since 1991 but they just never released it.

They'd still have to go over it, checking for glitches, etc.

Plus, I'm still convinced no one would actually like Mother 1 unless they just like really archaic RPGs. Even the easy patch had an enormous amount of grinding...

If they didn't they would be filing for bankruptcy right about now.

Don't get me wrong, they've made lots of mistakes. SimCity fiasco, Battlefield 4 not working; pretty recent things.

But you have to keep in mind, those things (especially the Battlefield 4 situation) negatively effected sales potential of both of those games. And with Battlefield 4, they also had to spend a ton of money constantly fixing servers. I doubt any company would like that. Heck, you can see the change in how Titanfall launched without any problems in its netcode, at least to my recollection.

And who knows? Maybe Mirror's Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront 3 will actually be really good?

Titanfall's netcode was because of Microsoft. Otherwise they've been pretty consistant, and I feel bad for anyone who consistantly supports them day one.

...oh wait, I don't feel bad. What's the opposite of that?
