    So how's your life going on these days?

    It's going. I'm a homeowner now. Mostly, I just work and lounge around the house when I'm not at work.

    Get them while they are up. Who knows if and when NPD tracks this down.

    lol, I had the same idea when I saw the post but I see that I'm late. GG Rol

    With the context :

    Thanks a bunch, dude! I appreciate it. Time to do some updates.

    Not going to get involved in that GameStop is dying, digital is the future thread because I know how futile reasoning with people on this issue is, but I just want to say props for pointing out the obvious flaws in such a future. People think publishers are crap now, wait until they can bend you over a barrel with no competition to check them.

    And so many people fail to grasp the concept of right of first purchase and that its absence is THE reason that all digital became the favored way of doing things on PC. That is a lovely benefit consoles have that people seem dead set to throw away.

    I'm personally happy to see the Switch maintain the physical medium but also make considerable strides towards restoring the "play now" convenience consoles built their empire on through advances (finally) in physical media.


    I've been nearly 100% physical for a while. I have not spent a single dime on digital for any title that is available at retail (I have several digital copies I got for free as a promo or gift), and I've even been reluctant to spend money on smaller digital titles. Aside from the occasional Virtual Console purchase, the last digital titles I bought were Perfect Dark HD and Mega Man 10, and that was in 2010. I'll probably make another exception this year for Sonic Mania and Ultra Street Fighter II, but that's it. I'm uncomfortable with spending any considerable amount of money on something I don't own.

    If console gaming ever goes full digital, then I'm out. The industry would no longer deserve my money. I'll still have at least seven console generations worth of content to enjoy.

    Out of curiosity, who's your favourite IV character?

    Tough call. Cecil had his journey from Dark Knight of Baron to a paladin, plus he's an alien. Kain is a fucking dragoon with awesome armor. Rosa is in many ways the backbone and moral compass of the team. Rydia grows from a timid child to a woman of war who commands powerful black magic and titanic beasts of destruction (and a Chocobo!). Golbez is a Vader-esque character who starts off evil but redeems himself in the end. Even Rubicante demonstrates that he isn't the typical villain, and despite working for Golbez (and by extension Zemus) he still is an honorable character that still possesses some scruples.

    What, no love for Yang? :P

    While I think Cecil is probably my favourite character - he's one of the best, most daring videogame characters ever conceived from a subversive narrative point of view, and his quest for redemption is both touching and tragic -, I've always had a soft spot for Yang. He's a pillar of support for the party, strong and determinated, and willing to sacrifice himself to save them all. Even if he later gets relegated to a lesser narrative plane, he still remains among my favourite Monk-based characters of the whole franchise, and probably one of the greatest non-main party members too.

    Where do you all go for video game news?

    in Gaming Discussion 5 hours ago

    Primarily IGN, because they also post a lot of general entertainment news. Not the best site in the world, but the breadth of news on games, movies, TV, etc., is a bonus....

    NeoGAF members welcome!

    in Gaming Discussion 5 hours ago

    I would like to see Chris1964, anyone from NPD, and anyone who did a lot of great stuff with sales threads on GAF find their way here. GAF had a lot of great information regarding sales being posted there, and this would be the best home for it....

    NeoGAF in shambles

    in General Discussion 5 hours ago

    I won't lie. I never cared for GAF's policies. Simply joining is a pain in the ass, and it doesn't take much to get banned, apparently. But the website itself does have its up sides. It's the largest gaming forum on the web, and as such draws a lot more attention from industry people than smaller outfits (I know 343 Industries' Frank O'Connor frequents the site). Also, the site has been a boon...
