Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I bought a Switch for my birthday and in preparation for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I'm playing Stardew Valley (again - the portability + new map makes the game feel new again) and may get Golf Story soon. Haven't done much otherwise because of being so busy. Trails in the Sky SC has taken a bit of my ...

Re: Is Mystere a separate character from Leo?

They are the same character. Leo couldn't bring himself to show his true face to the heroes after his sense of justice was revealed to be wrong. He was ashamed after finding out he had been working for the wrong side. That explains why Leo went away. It doesn't explain where Mystere came from. Even...

Re: Is Mystere a separate character from Leo?

That's like asking whether Luna is the same character as Fresca. Obviously not, superficial similarities in appearance and the fact they never appear side-by-side together aside.

Re: TSS: Save State Hacking, Debug Mode, and Level Data

^ It almost sounds like there's some randomization or hidden operations for the stats, and that it's less than would happen in Fire Emblem. Maybe it all happens in the early game? Otherwise, I find it hard to imagine the difference of 1 max HP is intentional.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I'm still playing Witcher III. I'm finally making good headway on the story. I also still return sometimes to Dragon Quest VII. I've been playing some Elite: Dangerous with friends. Favorite activity? Flying a luxury liner and transporting people who don't like being scanned. I get to go into silent...

Welcome to the board!

I feel like several other people have played EB and then joined, though I wonder whether that's my memory.

Re: What did you like about the GameCube?

The Gamecube was a lot of fun. It was physically the most distinct system out there: small, cube-like, with controllers that didn't have four evenly-shaped and spaced right buttons. What did I like? The games. I played more PS2 games by virtue of it having more JRPGs, but I still would return to the...

I whipped this up. I remember that strategy guide being on sale in stores and being baffled by the different art style. Thankfully I had the sense to pick up an official one.

Re: In-world sequels and myth building

Thanks for the responses. ...come to think of it, I'm not sure if there are very many game series I've even played that could fall into this category... That's one reason why I asked. It seemed like something video games can do very well design-wise, though there might be market limitations against ...

Re: Lunar Game Comparisons?

I'll name 4. (Grandia isn't even included, though it might well be.) 1. Skies of Arcadia. Both Vyse and Alex want to experience something well beyond their village, and they go on a wide-sweeping adventure collecting magical artifacts and seeing the world. The Gigas resemble the dragons, and tonally...

Re: New Here!

Welcome Shugo! I've been a massive Lunar fan since 1999 when my friend showed me SSSC on Playstation. Shortly after he showed me; Lunar 2 came out and I've been hooked ever since then. I own both Playstation Complete editions and the PSP remake. That's roughly my trajectory too, except it was a maga...

Re: Fastest Game Time

I think talking to every NPC multiple times makes my fastest game time rather slow. :)

I'd have to dig out memory cards to see. If you mean SSSC, I'm sure I'm not under 16 hours.

Re: Final Fantasy XV

I stopped playing right when the game was transitioning from open-world to the later-chapters-on-a-train. I'll go back to it, I'm sure; I just found I'd completed most of the open-world stuff and had less appetite for the main story.

In-world sequels and myth building

A stray thought today led me to think about game series that rely on a recurring pattern of threat, and how the games and their sequels explain that threat. In other words, how do characters in a serial RPG world understand all the bad things that keep happening? How would the players understand it?...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

A month later, and I'm still playing all three games. The Witcher III is thoroughly enjoyable, but my do-all-sidequests behavior and a two-week honeymoon have meant I've only done the first few required quests while delving deep into optional content. I haven't even visited Triss yet! I also find th...

Re: High quality S-Video switch box??

I'll piggyback a question on yours: doesn't any intermediary between a box and a display entail some loss in quality? In other words, the mere fact that the signal has to be adapted means that there's one more connection that could mess with the display quality. I used a basic switch-box that used b...

Re: Activism, Social Justice, Protests and you: The Political Discussion Containment Thread

Yeah, when I read that I'm being called whiny and self-righteous in the first line, that doesn't really inspire me to engage. Quite the opposite; I assume the person writing those words doesn't have any ideas that are worth my time, and that they're venting for some reason I can't fathom. I'll refer...
