It's right there on the page  :P
2Ghz, 2GB RAM and a DX9 compatible GPU. That's pretty much any 10 year old PC. The game is in 2D and isn't made with Unity, so it should probably run fine on just about anything. (There is even a smartphone version)

GOG has it DRM free. You can just store the installer on a flash drive or burn it to a CD Bluray if you want and play it whenever you want without internet.

I woudnt say that i regard the staff here as my enemy, but i have watched some threads get locked due to seemingly small "triggers". Certain things, no matter how civilly put, seem to cause massive problems to certain mods.

Just to point one thing out since a lot of people don't realize this, the forum mods have very little to do with the site staff that processes submissions. The teams are for the most part completely different (though there is two member overlap since so few people are even willing to do either job). This is btw also why it might seem at times that staff approves things very inconsistantly. There are simply different people and some might make a judgement call on one thing and then it only later shows that the general consensus swings otherwise. There simply aren't enough ressources to have a multiple eyes approval process going. Hence why there is the option to flag submissions afterwards and get them cleaned up when the public had the opportunity to play and can comment on specifics of a hack.

In an ideal world there'd be enough staff members with enough free time so that several people playtest a hack for a while and then discuss on whether to approve or not. Unfortunately the reality is that one staff member reading the description will have to suffice for the most part. And even then things can pile up in the queue for several days before someone gets to them. It sucks but it's what we have made work for the last 10 (!) years. Let's not tear it all down over interpersonal drama.

Speaking of Fire Emblem, I'm currently playing Banner Saga 2 and it's a very similiar game but from a decidedly western standpoint and oh boy is it simply superior in any conceivable way. Compared to it FE is like children banging on tin cans.

Cleared Zero Time Dilemma. Conclusion to the trilogy that started with 999 and Virtue's Last Reward (I don't think the naming scheme helped sales).
Not sure much needs to be said about this. If you haven't played 999 and VLR, go play them right now. If you have, you'll play ZTD anyway. It fulfills the expectations.

Beware though, the 3DS version is supposedly pretty bad. I played it on Vita which was great. This time there is also a PC version apparently (and 999 will get one soon, so don't panic if you already threw away your DS!).

I find that hard modes often aren't balanced very well. Now before you jump at me, let me clarify. Most games these days are balanced at one difficulty level (whatever is called normal). And all the others are more or less auto generated by just giving enemies + or - X% HP and damage. Needless to say that often doesn't make for a super polished experience IMO and I often find completely ridiculous spots because places that had difficulty spikes in the standard difficulty get completely broken at harder difficulties because they weren't playtested and tweaked appropiately.

That doesn't mean I'm not often playing at harder difficulties. But I often regret it and not because I'm too bad but because I feel like the designers didn't give a shit.

Being more accessible and simpler doesn't have to mean it'll be bad, but I'm not too hopeful. Fortunately there is FF15 this summer which will surely be more meatier. I liked the demo at least.

Anyway to answer the original question, Fang and Rikku of course.

Even though Turkey itself is fairly liberal for a Muslim country

It used to be, but under Erdogan it's taking huge steps back into the stone age practically every month.

Playing some Grand Kingdom (Vita). It's decent. Too much focus on online play I think. It feels like I have to participate in MP and/or grind generic generated missions to keep up with the level demands of the SP campaign. Once Zero Time Dilemma arrives I'll probably drop this one (I doubt I'll beat it before that).

Am I really the only one that plays XCom?

Basically, the UE calls themselves democratic and humanitarian. But their philosophy is : "If you disagree with us, you're wrong. If you leave us, you're dead." Very democratic indeed.

This is complete bullshit.  "If you disagree with us, you're wrong.". Uh yeah, if they'd believe it to be right they'd be of the same opinion. That is a complete non-statement. "If you leave us, you're dead." You just made that up out of your imaginary boogeyman ideas of the EU. Politicians said if Britain leaves there'll be economic ramifications. Yeah that's what's happening right now. It's not a threat like you make it out to be but simply a statement of what would happen. ::)

I think a representative democracy is the lesser evil here. While it has a myriad of its own problems (corruption/lobbying most importantly) at least there is a general idea that the people in charge work on the issues with all of their attention and with all the ressources (experts etc) they need to make a proper decision. Of course in practice too many politicians are too easily swayed by lobby groups either due to ignorance or for their own gains. But that system at least works fine on day to day issues.

But asking Joe Bob the 50 year old farmer what he thinks about matters of state that can alter the world economy? Fuck no. I can be pretty full of myself but I know there are decisions that other people are much better equipped than I am to make.

Also, as Bregalad mentioned, the decision-making process could - and should - be more democratic in the true sense of the word.

This whole thing proves how bad of an idea it is to ask the populous directly about issues with complex ramifications. Apparently most didn't even get what they were voting on except a vague sense that they need to stop more refugees from getting into the country. You want to let those people have even more say?

Switzerland can afford to do it because it's a insignificant country that doesn't affect a thing (except where thieves and criminal bankers stash their money).

The UK was formed by conquest and colonialism and not by common interests of the members though.

I just don't see why the UK needed to be a part of the EU in the first place. They'll be successful whether they are a part of it or not and for them it just seems like a source of unnecessary problems. I imagine that would be like a bunch of south American countries convincing the US to join a similar union just so we could help prop up failed states like Mexico.

The United States already are a construct like the EU, just in a later stage.

i think i read somewhere that many people had regreted to vote "leave"after they learned what it entailed

How can you vote on this and then learn what it even means only afterwards? It boggles the mind.

Alundra is awesome. The thing that bothers some people is the platforming combined with a perspective that makes distances hard to judge. The puzzling was great. Not to mention the story and athmosphere are leagues beyond any Zelda game as well. I'd replay Alundra over any post-OoT Zelda any day.

I dunno, the last thing that would come to my mind when someone were to ask me how to fix Zelda is "Make the world bigger so there is more padding and more collectible stuff".

How about make the puzzles not so obvious that the solution is immediately clear upon entering a room? How about designing dungeons that make use of all the tools you aquired that far and not just tailor them to the one item of the dungeon that you can then throw away after it is complete? (And after you picked up a random hearth container or two somewhere on the overworld with it)

To clarify, romhacking.com was an entirely different site run by completely different people.

Also bought 6 rpgmaker games for $.99 strictly for the steam XP.

So that's how those things find buyers...  :P
