  • Great game, and glad its making it to the Switch. I really enjoyed the game when I played it awhile back. It has a cool structure, and a ton of nostalgia for an 80s kid. But dang if Mighty Rabbit doesn't disappoint as a developer with their custo…
  • When Hearts R came out, Wheels did a small give away on twitter, where he sent out copies of the original DS import to two people who bought Hearts R. Being one of the two winners, I got the opportunity to play both games side by side. My thoughts a…
  • I was really looking forward to FF12 making it to Steam, since I don't really want to buy a PS4 and I really prefer PC over consoles these days. But like many of the PS4->PC ports coming from Square and a few other publishers recently, its infect…
  • I think my main goal for this year is going to be to eliminate the remaining backlog I have for two systems: DS and 360 (non xbone back-compat titles) For DS: - Etrian Odyssey 2 - Etrian Odyssey 3 - Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (or, I might just s…

  • Must Buy: Tales of Berseria (...even if I am a half dozen games behind) DQ8 (... even if it is probably one of my least favorite DQ games, have the pre-order and must support DQ in the west) FF12 Zodiac Age (last good FF in HD goodness) Maybe …
  • And for anyone else who cares, Telltale's Game of Thrones is on sale on the Xbone, finally! Batman was as well but I'm not sure if it still is.
  • I need that 3DS version in my life. I will also get either the PS4 or Switch version, assuming they are the same and we get them.
  • Syberia 2 (PC) The second Syberia game continues immediately after the point where the first game left off. The story continues to be something that feels like it could take place in the real world, but has too many fantastical elements to be bel…
  • Mind Zero is about the only game on the list that mildly interests me, but I'm not sure if I should bother with it. While its not an RPG, I'm getting to be quite disappointed that Telltale will put Game of Thrones on sale on every platform except…
  • So one good argument against my point might be that the Nintendo localization is present in the iOS/Android port of the games. But that might have happened long after the end of exclusivity where Nintendo may have thought they would get their money …

  • I for one, will be getting both versions of the game for sure, assuming they both come, though I think I'd play the 3DS version first. I'm not fully convinced we will get the 3DS version though, it seems to me that the PS4 one is the one they intend…
  • Nah. I was mostly interested in hearing about how the game may have improved, or worsened. It did sound like you had a good time though, that's good.
  • How would you compare this to One Way Heroics (Plus) on PC? I played the original, and while I liked the concept I found the game itself tedious and a bit boring, especially after identifying a strategy that works well enough to rarely fail. Is M…
  • Still working on the same games I've been working on. Skyrim: completed main quest, thieves guild will be completed tonight. I've been making some use of the console since... why not? I already put 250 hours legit in the game, so this replay is n…

  • Sad not to get the Vita version, but I will probably do the same as I did for the last one- buy a physical PS4 copy, then eventually actually play the inevitable PC Steam release they haven't mentioned yet.
  • I think I'm going to have to watch this on twitch or something. All the reviews I've read still leave me unsure about whether this is actually a good game or not. (from my perspective). Eh maybe I've been sold on it. But I think I'll wait until a…
  • I never looked into the original version, are those in-game graphics or are they FMV? That said, not too sure if I'm interested in this one. Don't like the technology in-game, seems out of place for a DQ title. I've played the previous 2 DQMJ tit…
  • My point was that you are always actively pursuing some end in DQ7, which is through a large number of smaller stories hinting at and eventually leading into the main story. While the original had a lot of padding (finding tablet pieces, etc), that …
  • I guess I'm in a minority that always think of the epic 11 minute Rush song when I hear Xanadu rather than that Olivia Newton John movie/song. I also just realized that the NES game Faxanadu is probably pronounced "Fa-zan-adoo" rather than "Fax-a…
  • The grinding/padding factor is definitely an important caveat. I used to enjoy grinding, but mostly because I like being overpowered and I had the time to do it. But today, I find it insulting as a gamer if I buy a game that is 20 hours of story and…
  • I picked 20-40, however realistically speaking, the shorter the better. The low 20s though seem like a sweet spot for being able to tell a reasonably interesting story without too much fluff, and without overstaying their welcome. Shorter games are …
  • Yeah. I actually intentionally ended up with it. I had that big anthology collection (despite owning all the games except Skyrim on PC already), unopened. But when they announced the special edition I figured I might as well put in the codes for Sky…
  • There is a PSN Game Awards sale that looks like it has The Witcher 3 PS4 on sale. That said, nothing for me. Still waiting for reviews and bargain bin before I really consider FF15. I ended up not getting much last week, black friday sales wer…
  • Preparing to make another attempt at Bloodstone in Rock Band Rivals next week. I'm really trying hard to not feel like this is more of a chore than it is fun at this point though. If we don't succeed though I'll probably let my crew know that they a…
  • Ah, ok. I haven't played either Crisis Core or Type-0, so I don't have a comparison basis. I generally like open world, but I've been hearing mixed reactions on Square's ability to make open world work well with FF15 so far. I guess I'll keep my …
  • Ok, I've been surprised to be hearing generally good things about this game, which I had assumed was going to be a huge flop. So, anyone who does play it- I'm interested in hearing if there is any chance that I would actually like it, since I had…
  • As a new father of one, soon to be two children myself, I can definitely agree that there is a huge change in perspective that comes with becoming a father. Not just in seeing media from a completely different angle, but entire thought processes, go…
