Hate to disappoint y'all, but I've played all but a few of these. =\

Gaming Discussion / Recommendations for non-RPG PS1 games?
« on: March 21, 2016, 07:16:43 am »
The new ePSXe is out, and I figured I'd give some of its new capabilities, especially the perspective correction, a try. So, I looked up the jRPGs and found that most of them are 2D based in some way(Either pre-rendered backgrounds, sprites, or both). So, I figure, let's branch out a little a try something new.

I'm gonna cut y'all off a bit and point out I've already played MGS1, Brave Fencer Musashi(A lot), all of the Spyros(Though, I never did finish the first...)and Crash Bandicoots.

So those are already off the list, so to speak, aside from possibly finally beating the first Spyro.

I notice they had one of the names wrong for a game... Gex is actually Gex 2: Enter the Gekko or Gex 3: Deep Cover Gekko(Not entirely sure which game the screenshot's from). Gex 1 was a 2D sidescroller.

Links to the bravely default stuff? All I've ever heard was the costume editing.

As for associating this topic with GG: Well, that's GG's fault. They're the ones that took up the translation issues mantle in the last year or so, so if their tainted name is hurting your cause, well, blame them.

For that matter, the font in that link is so small I can't even read more than a little bit of it.

Like, I can't tell if it's talking about drawn stuff or live action stuff. That detail changes the conversation massively

Incidentally, folks, before we go down the blame game lane, do remember that real human beings worked on these games. Guy at a forum I go to was one of the folks who localized the game, and got reamed for it on various places once his involvement was discovered. Up to and including threats to his safety. For obvious reasons, I won't type out his handle/s.

It's a fucking video game, folks. bad translations are part of why our community exists, but please, don't go fucking nuts.

Again, if you equate homosexual rights to supporting homosexual marriage (note, again, that I support a marriage equivalent in everything but name for homosexuals, just not something governmentally called a homosexual marriage), then I guess I don't support homosexual rights.

But if you equate homosexual rights to being just that, homosexual rights: sticking up for the rights of homosexuals, then I am all for homosexual rights.

You're all but for one arbitrary thing, and frankly, as an LGBT christian, I dislike how you're using our religion as a cover for your personal beliefs.

Denying my right to marry a fellow woman... Suuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrre you're for homosexual rights.

Pomeranian puppies.

Seriously, you don't fuck around with Mexican mobs/dangs/etc. They make the ones in the U.S. look like puppies.

I'd be fine with the XP and gold doubled to match the GBA version. The SNES version is a bit grindy. Removing that would be rather nice.

Neither was I, and I've been a staff member in various forms since 2009!

Our site uses a lot of custom code. It might not be possible. Nightcrawler will have to determine this.

So, don't get your hopes up yet.

The story seems to be on the greenlight page

But, the English is so awkward it causes... issues. Let's use that word charitably. :)


Anyway, as for the balancing, I seem to recall that in FM3, close range let you fuck things up massively.

And got there by torturing dissidents and shit.

They were not a good model, even if later reforms made the country much, much better.

It's not about "not understanding the dynamics of abusive relationships". It's about common sense and personal responsibility. If someone is treating you like shit, don't put up with it. If someone rapes you, get them thrown in jail before they rape someone else. Doing anything else and trying to justify it is a matter of trying to turn excuses into reasons.

I'm not totally oblivious to the concept of abuse and it's psychological effects.

You might not be, but I don't think you know or udnerstand how it can break a person down, prevent them from escaping.

My dad spent years being broken down by his family and only escaped the cycle of abuse because he met my mom, who literally saved him. From what I can tell, this was literally a coincidence.

Even better, there are 8-10% fees from Indiegogo/Paypal/credit card processors. In the best case scenario of meeting their funding (the absolute minimum they should be aiming for), their take-home would be $54,600. That leaves:

Development – $32,760 (?!)
BGM – $16,380
Localization – $5,460

Now, I don't know a whole lot about PC game development or music, so I can't comment there... but $5,460 to translate a game of this scale? I assume there is absolutely ZERO plot if they expect any translators to bid on that. At first, I thought that the price was insulting as it is, but then I read that they plan on a worldwide release. That means that this isn't just one localization, but several localizations all need to be done from the same paltry sum.

The game looks fun, but for the money they're asking for.. yeah, this is a train-wreck waiting to happen. Especially if they didn't even factor in the cost of their incentives into their budget.

TBH, the game looks amazing.

I just think that their crowdfunding campaign is... charitably, I think the proper word here is, described as amateur hour shenanigans.

I get the feeling it will fail, even if they get all the money they need and then some, and it will be their fault.
