Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Playing Suikoden is like playing FF6 for the first time all over again. I haven't played an RPG well past bedtime just out of a drive to see what happens next since... well, since Chrono Trigger. Zelda doesn't count.
It was hard to just turn off the TV in the middle of a cut-scene this morning to come into work. Can't wait to get back home. I can start building my castle and recruiting my army! Yessssss.
This is the kind of game that defines why the 16-bit era was the golden age of gaming. It's not even part of that generation, but it came out early enough in the PS1's lifetime to pretty much be considered part of it (one could argue that the golden age ended with Mario 64 and FF7). It's got everything the best SNES games had. Just awesome.
I should get into FFXII sometime, too. Apparently, lots of people love it especially because it finally breaks the FF7 mold and goes for grander political intrigue, which I love.
