Other than the art style its really nothing like earthbound in my opinion. all these games being compared to earthbound just because the art style matches or its "quirky", reminds me of every hard game being compared to dark souls.

the game says it has choices, hell that's one of the biggest selling points but if you really look hard the game only has choices like any game where you weigh one commodity against another and on top of that they take control from you when your choices really matter.
for example you can bet party members in Russian roulette for money (which is rather hard to get) at first you would think "Woah hard choice" well, not really because every party member shuts up after you get him in your party, just bet the ones you never use. Joining your party is like being dead anyway its like they get turned into action figures "Here is so and so, his back story is blah blah blah he can use this attack, wait you want to know his opinion on the situation or for him to impact anything beyond combat? Sorry hes just a party member" rather than actual people.

Or your main guy has withdrawals from drugs! Should I take them or not?
if you take the drugs or not everything ends the same, you just get extra cutscenes if you don't take drugs.

And the main plot tries to take itself so seriously when so much stupid is going on around it, it never really finds a way to make it gel together.

I like the concept the game gave me but I don't like the game I got in the end.

Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun! Someone comes and beats up your friend at the start of each stage and it is your job to beat them up in revenge! Then he gets stabbed with an icepick... Yeah dunno why he didn't end up in the hospital but after the final battle he comes up and shakes your hand so hes fine and dandy I guess?

I am, what does the friend feature do?

I am bored so I am going to post about games in alphabetical order and mention how much work/what you need to get it working the best it can.
Also I won't mention games that are on consoles unless the pc version has a leg up.

Baldurs gate 1 and 2: These games are isometric dungeons and dragons rpgs that have a lot in them, expect to put a lot of hours into these. Buy the enhanced version and look up the npc mod for baldurs gate 1, you don't really NEED mods for 2. Note theres a mod called sword coast stratagems that makes the ai smarter but thats more for a second playthrough or the crazy into dungeons and dragons type

Dark souls: This was a botched port that got fanfixed with dsfix into something better than its console counterpart, I suggest the pc versions of both souls game but 1 is clearly better as a pc game if you can throw a mod into a folder.

Deus Ex: I suggest grabbing this from good old games and installing the biomod http://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Biomod_(unofficial_mod). There are graphical update mods that you can find and you should install as you see fit but biomod is really the only MUST HAVE mod in my opinion.

Giants -citizens kabuto: Get it from good old games, the game is rather clunky but the humor is quite great.

The Gothic games: Only get if you are willing to put up with INSANELY clunky games. There are fan patches which are a pain to find that make it a bit better but man, you gotta work to get to the good stuff with this series. Whats up with euro devs and buggy but great games?

Icewind Dale: Same engine as baldurs gate but more combat oriented, get the enhanced edition of 1 and any copy of 2. Good games if you like your rpgs more combat than story.

Left 4 dead 1 and 2: Has more content and the games better on pc hands down. Go for this if you have friends only because playing with randoms 50 50 on if you have fun or pull your hair out. Also get a mic if you play this.

Magacite: A fun little indie game thats cheap and great fun with multiple friends, don't expect much but for the price it killed a good weekend for me and my friends

Neverwinter Nights 2: Get the good old games release and enjoy these insanely good games! there are a few mod packs that are worth getting bu t sadly the website I use to get them from is dead, another dungeons and dragons game but this one is third edition and 3d. Very fun.

Postal 2: A lot of people put down this game for just being a "Murder simulator" But the great thing about the game is you can go through it killing as many OR as LITTLE people as you want. When I beat the game I got the finishing rank of "Jesus" because I never killed anyone that didn't attack me first.

Quest for glory series: Get these from good old games, they are a mix of adventure game (Think monkey island or kings quest) and rpg (Think rpgs duh). They are my favorite game series but they are rather old and clunky. Also get the remake of 2 free online, just google it.

Sacrifice: an insanely charming real time strategy game where you take part in the battles as a general wizard, the art style is unique, the world and characters are full of charm and the voice acting is fantastic! Also the gameplays pretty fun to.

Vampire the masquerade: bloodlines: Holy god where do I start... Get the steam or good old games release then apply the fanpatch. This game has to win the award for most broken and buggy AWESOME game ever created. The people who made this game couldn't code for shit but they knew how to make a great game!

Xenonaughts: A spiritual sequal to X-com, just buy it and you are good to go.

X-com, the new one: The new x-com! Not quite the same but still good!

All the Ys games: These are enhanced remakes of the Ys console games and they made over 10 of these games for a reason, they are great. Buy them on steam

Pathologic (russian shithole plague simulator)
King of Dragon Pass (nordic ruler visnual novel strategy simulator)

A few are also available on consoles, but I included them because i felt they related more to pc

I would suggest grouping them into older hard to get into games (Clunky interface, obtuse gameplay such as ultima or hard to get running well) and easy to pick up and play (throw the game on the hardrive, load it up and follow tutorial).
Also maybe suggest games better with multiplayer or without.

Thanks so much! This version is sooooo much better than the snes version! Does it support psx mouse? I forget.

Afaik it was the GBA version they were thinking about translating but I have a feeling that now that the official release has happend I doubt anyone will pick up a translation in the near future (But what do I know?)

It officially released on ios in english. It is currently the best english release and tied with the psx version as the best Japanese release.

Was the original ff6 set to wait mode(the game pauses while you are in menus to give you time to pick a move) by default like this one or does it just default to that because it knows menu nav is cumbersome on a touch screen?

Gaming Discussion / Best versions of oft remade games
« on: April 16, 2015, 04:22:22 pm »
This includes hacks and retranslations
Ok first of all I want to ask the big un
Final fantasies, which ones are the best versions content wise?
For example I would really like to know if there is actually a good version of final fantasy 2

I know for a fact  the 3d remake of final fantasy 4 has the best translation and in my opinion the most improvements.

For vanilla final fantasy tactics the IOS port has HD sprites but I rather like the "Kind of" hack that rebalances a few things and fixes some glitches.

Final fantasy 7s pc version has so many mods that if you are willing to put effort into setting it up it would be the best way to play, no idea if 8 has anywhere near as big a mod scene.

Dragon quest has a bunch of remakes and so far the ds and ios versions seem to be the best choices (Except 5 where its do you want 3d graphics or do you want more content).

Gaming Discussion / Thinking about getting into fatal frame games...
« on: April 14, 2015, 10:10:03 am »
I tried fatal frame 1 and it just didn't grab me, it felt a lot like a normal survival horror with bad gun(Camera) controls, is this the kind of series where I should skip 1? Or does it get better as the game goes?

Since we have been talking about ios and android final fantasy games so much I might as well make a topic about the newest one.

holy crap this games good! I would explain more but its free, go get it, I have done all the content currently available and have yet to spend a cent. I have no idea how they expect to make money from this title.

Apparently the steel series stratus has been tested and works. I will get that thing some time soon. I wish I could find a article or video that talks about how the controls work with a gamepad.

Clearly its moon dragon quest... Actually that would be fucking awesome, a sci fi dragon quest with all the dragon quest style.

iOS/Android controllers use bluetooth, no ports.
Actually some like the logitech powershell controller do.
But can you recommend a controller that would work with the ipad 2? Its not jail broken and I stupidly updated my pad so it won't be for a while.

Damnit my ipad 2 doesn't have the ports to run controllers!

Charlotte in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin learns her skills by putting up a magic shield and if the enemy uses an applicable skill on her she'll learn that magic.
Yeah that's what I'm talking about.

Most of these are stealing abilities more than gaining by being bashed in the head by them. I will look through the tropes page tho.

« on: April 07, 2015, 12:58:15 pm »
I'm referring to the DS Version which is nearly identical minus Whyt and one new sidequest to get Piercing Magic which mode default (and can't be changed) is Hard Mode, haha.

Also the battles on the PC version aren't that bad. The famous LPer HCBailly just started an LP of the PC Version not too long ago and it looks pretty smooth to me.

Huh so everyone on steams forums are just bitching because they can? Cool cool. Square did promise a 30fps patch but hasn't done so in over a year so doubt it will be any time soon.

I read the ff3 release on steam has 30fps battles, wonder why they didn't upgrade the pc version of 4.
When I play I will keep in mind not to use the draw attack ability for max enjoyment.

Quick question, does the final fantasy 4 the after years made for ios include the interlude? Or do I have to grab a psp copy of ff4 for that? No big deal if I do but was wondering if I should look right now.
