Don't get too overexcited. I'm not back yet!

Hey Cone, haven't talked with you lately.

Have you been gaming more lately? XP

Indeed we haven't! There's been a lot of stuff going on at work and some other large (and perhaps unusual!) changes going on too, so haven't had much time for gaming or for much of anything really. Hopefully that will change soon...when everything levels out.

How have you been?

on 21 April 2016

I'm fine, thanks for asking xD
Yeah, I knew there should be a lot of stuff happening but I hoped it was good ol' gaming taking you some sweet time hahaha.

Still loving your avatar xD

on 21 April 2016

Heh well in fairness I am trying to squeeze in a little bit of gaming when possible (mostly an hour of FFXII a day!) but that's come at the expense of watching TV and visiting here, and there's not all that much left now that interests me on the site. Not at the moment but maybe when we get closer to E3, let's see!

Thanks as well! :) I really enjoyed FFIX (needed more Beatrix!) and with XII on the go, nearly at the end of my quest to play them. Not sure if I'll do XIII again but if I can get XII done before XV, that would be great!

on 24 April 2016

XII can be really long if you want to do everything.
Don't even try Yazmat if you aren't up for like 4 hours straight of fighting it xP, but the guild hunts are really nice.
Have you been liking it? I love the art style if that game, the judges sre so cool, the espers and summoning attavks as well, and there is Fran!

on 24 April 2016

Yeah I'm not mad! Well...not THAT mad!

It's a lot of fun. I actually played it as a kid, my Dad didn't really like it so I had free reign over it which was strange. It holds up better than I was expecting though which is very pleasant indeed. Just finished the Henne Mines and need to do the rest of the forest. Worth going to the Feywood and getting slaughtered? Let's see!

You know me too well! Perhaps I will comment when I feel a little better and can string more than a few words together

Oh goodness! Feel better soon!

I remember talking to you about Chronicles a lot. Well, I recently finished the main story of Chronicles X. I'm assuming you've beaten it by now and was curious for your thoughts.

Well it was definitely different! Can't say I really appreciate such obvious "WE'RE DOING A SEQUEL" endings but that's a personal gripe I suppose. What did you think?

on 31 March 2016

I pretty much flipped out at the ending. I had to pace for a solid 10-15 minutes at how that ending did not just occur. While I enjoyed the story, I definitely agree with most people who prefer the original's story for two reasons, both of which involve the player character. 1) The player character really has absolutely no importance to the story in any way. 2) Because it's a silent protaganist, the player character has pretty much no personality. I honestly think the story would have been more interesting if Elma was the main playable character. It's pretty much her story anyway, and class has no bearing on the story anyway. Your thoughts on the story as a whole?

on 31 March 2016

Jesus, could I have thrown in anymore "anyway"s into that paragraph...

on 31 March 2016

Yeah you're pretty much there. Whilst Shulk wasn't the best protagonist ever he still had an engaging role and his relationship with Fiora and in particular Melia made the story that much more interesting. Every character Had a role and even the antagonists played to that too. That's not the case here as the vast majority of characters can be forgotten.

Overall the story is OK but weaker than you'd come to expect. Also because of the requirements to start each mission the pacing is off. For me the highlight is Chapter 5 where you find the Ma-Non and discover you're a robot. The story doesn't get back there IMO.

on 01 April 2016

With who else... Coney has proved us how big fan of the xenoblade is! He runs the official thread about it if I remember right~

on 09 April 2016

What'd you think of the gameplay as compared to Chronicles? A lot of people say it's better, whereas I don't think it's exactly better, just more complicated.

on 11 April 2016

It would have been nice if, say, you could use any arts when you'd unlocked that class. I do think the combat is better with additions like Skells, but it's missing the charm added by the individuality of each of the characters (no healer really, no Riki, no Melia like class etc) and the loss of Monado arts is no fun.

on 12 April 2016

Yea, the lack of Monado Arts kinda sucks.

I like the idea of the Skell, and I do have fun with it, but a lot of the game gets kinda broken with the Skells, and there's a lot less variety of what you can do in combat with the Skell.

Finally, I hate what they did with the party system and affinity. It makes trying to do everything you can before you beat the game a goddamn chore. Because you always need to have your avatar in the party, it makes keeping everyone at relatively the same level a pain in the ass. I know you can grind enemies at around your level to level weaker party members, but that;s a pain because of how many damn party members there are. Also annoying is that because of the number of party members, the overwhelming majority of them are completely useless to the plot.

I wholly enjoy the game, but I honestly think the original is just better constructed in a lot of ways

Ratchet & Clank: Play The Game Or Watch The Movie First?

in Sony Discussion 2 days ago

Play the game would be my advice. You get to see the locations in more detail and the story is hardly groundbreaking. Then again, if you're unfamiliar with the story and want a bit of background then you may as well see the movie first. I don't think in this case doing one in front of the other will have a massive effect. ...

Ratchet and Clank Movie Reviews and Boxoffice performance

in Movies Discussion 3 days ago

I can't say I'm surprised by these scores. Don't think anyone was seriously expecting a cinematic masterpiece and looking at some of the cutscenes from the game they feel almost robotic... Sometimes funny but not lively. Which is strange because the original title had an awful lot more soul and emotional attachment in the story and that wasn't a movie adaptation! ...

Must-play games thread

in General Discussion on 24 April 2016

I'd add Xenoblade Chronicles, the other R&C games, and the original Spyro/Crash trilogies in addition to those already on your list. ...
