    Along with wanting a SNES FF Collection (with V) on the Switch, I also really want the Lunar games. Make it happen Nintendo/Sega/whomever.

    GameArts allowed a Grandia collection so it's not outside the realm of possibility. The question is will you get the versions you want? Silver Star Story has been remade half a dozen times, and I think only the PSP release was alright after the PSX version. Our luck we'd get the shit GBA version.

    Saturn versions with mpeg expansion cart, except English.

    Actually the mobile version of Lunar 1 is decent, PSX graphics/gameplay with PSP music, high resolution fonts and high quality FMV. Never happened for 2 though.

    There have been translations since WD. The PSP version was done by XSEED and they're still around.

    It would make the most sense to do psx versions in parallel to the sega cd ones. Those come close to each other at least and could follow what a lot of collections do with having an original and upgraded version.

    Just uhh, don’t give us Dragon song. Imo grandia 1 was closer to a third lunar than dragon song.

    I've always been curious how Lunar would go down with today's audience. That game may as well be "RPG Tropes: The game". Except at the time, they weren't tropes. For instance, the main villain is supposed to be a major surprise. But anybody playing today with even a passing interest in RPG's will take one look at the character in question and say "...Well they're obviously the bad guy".

    Also, I just beat Luigi's Mansion 3 last night and that game turned out to be pretty goddamn good! Some of the enviroments are really cool artistically and aesthetically.

    Just about every boss fight past this guy (I make an exception with the floor 14 one) was really great as well.

    And though I have been playing a bit less lately got a first in the ongoing Special Battle in Super Mario Bros 35 today too.

    Well also the Legendary VA work for him likely wouldn’t help hide it either.

    Both the segacd Lunar games have the most influence on what I love most about rpgs. That will never ever change. I guess it’s why I can put up a it’s so much of the stuff the tales games do

    But in all honesty if working designs hadn’t put so much heart and soul into doing them justice in the west they would have likely not been memorable at all. Love or hate their comedy style, but no other Japanese game got even a smidgen of that much work done in localizing them. That level of effort was unheard of at the time when at this point we take it for granted.

    Hmm, looks like Amazon has Animal Crossing switches in stock. I've already confirmed with Amazon customer service that my two week old and now bricked Switch does qualify for return/replacement but they couldn't send a replacement until December 17th, so I think I'll probably just return my dead one and get an Animal Crossing one instead.

    I somehow managed to boot my broken Switch into maintenance mode. And then I turned it off. And now I can't do it again.

    Well, that's one return that I won't be cancelling, then. Ironic that the Animal Crossing switch heralds the death of my Animal Crossing save. Eh, I hadn't touched it in half a year anyway.

    Just started playing Resident Evil Revelations (the first short chapter) and the behind-the-shoulder view, tank controls, and free camera combo all work pretty well together.

    My partner (Carlos? Honestly forgot his name already), already seems like kind of an idiot. He got fucked up by a beached thing (not the death stranding kind) when said getting fucked up was rather avoidable. Interesting game so far though and I like the setting.

    I must have been really lucky or really naive, since I never predicted the twist, it genuinely sucker punched me.

    Also, I think it's funny that Lunar is probably the only remade-over-and-over-again RPG that keeps having less content in each subsequent version.

    I think the twist got me but I was sus since my friend (who owned the game so I only got to play when I went to his place) I think was hinting at things. There is a slim chance I also saw it in his save file or something. I just don’t remember being completely shocked by it. But I never am completely shocked by jrpg twists yet I still am addicted to them in storytelling.

    I picked up Ghost of a Tale and it’s a lot more than I expected. Your little mouse troubadour has an inventory menu system that is...more similar to a Dark Souls game than not.

    The game world is nearly as lively and vivid as the trailer depicts. Occasionally the camera may clip through some world geometry resulting in your view getting obscured by a scattering of triangles, but not often.

    Ghost is very much an adventure game. You start in a dungeon, and unsurprisingly there are locked doors everywhere. It will take some time to figure out how they can be opened. You will hit walls. Some areas are certainly lavish enough in the cramped dungeon quarters that it may br hard to tell where you can go or what’s available. It might be a little more challenging than it should be out the gate.

    Definitely like an old school PC adventure game hiding in a modern third-person console title.

    Yeah, I took a chance and agree with all you've said. Perfectly fine enough performance, though fps sensitive folks will complain about that 25fps feel at times. I heard it was a labor of love from one guy or something? Way more to it than I'd expected going in blind.

    I bought Robotics Notes blu-rays a couple of years ago when I went through my anime collecting phase and it's still sitting in my closet, unwatched, next to Steins;Gate and like 30-40 other anime series I also bought and haven't watched.

    Should I buy this, having not watched the anime, so it can sit next to my Steins;Gate games in my Nintendo Switch library, also unplayed?

    Glad you caught it in time.

    Let me share a fun story that happened to me years ago. I share this every couple of years, partly as a cautionary tale and partly as a benchmark you can judge against if you every have to lament spending money on a system you lost or broke. Because, don't worry, you can refer to this post and realize there is someone way dumber and/or more wasteful than you could ever hope to be.

    Behold, my decent into madness circa 2015 when I lost my Nintendo 3DS while deep into Persona Q. Spoilered for massive:

    Did you also lose a Vita a while back, or am I thinking of someone else? Also, godDAMN, dude, that sucks! Makes you REALLY wish you could back your shit up to an online profile, don't it? Letters of outrage to Nintendo and all that shit. Boo.

    Yes, I lost a Vita too. :/

    Definitely not my saves. But I have to run to buy the 3DS anyway.

    Drez wrote: »
    Oh my fucking God.

    Nintendo finally responded that they did the data transfer for me. I haven't teally touched the new 3DS at all and it hasn't left my bedroom.

    So just now I start redownloading software, including StreetPass games.

    Weird thing is, I have one StreetPass visitor.

    I had a sick feeling in my stomach.

    Yep, the StreetPass visitor was me. Myself. My prior incarnation from the lost 3DS.

    I was pissed. Whoever found my 3DS was waking around, parading as me.

    Then I thought about it a little more. StreetPass doesn't have a large range...

    So I walked over to where my coat was hanging up and moved a box. Lo and behold, my old 3DS was sitting there.

    Jesus Fucking Christ.

    And here's a smaller recap I did a year or two ago:
    https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/40062716#Comment_40062716
    I once lost my Nintendo 3DSXL with Persona Q (and an obsessive 80 hours of gameplay on that game) inside. I was really upset. I went out the next day and tracked down one of the special blue Shin Megami Tensei-themed 3DSXLs and a new copy of Persona Q.

    Then I went home. I called Nintendo and had them do a system/account license transfer to the new 3DSXL.

    After that was done, I started screwing around with the new 3DSXL and noticed I had a streetpass already. It was me. I streetpassed myself.

    I'm like "wait, what?"

    First thought was: Some fucker found my 3DSXL and is running around playing using my goddamned Mii identity.

    Second thought was: Uhh, did I check behind that box yesterday?

    My "lost" 3DSXL had fallen out of my jacket, behind the box.

    I ended up giving the older 3DSXL to my sister and selling the newer (but open) copy of Persona Q to someone on PA for a discount.

    And then a month later the New 3DS came out and I bought that too.

    Does anyone have an opinion on Moonlighter vs Children of Morta for my next purchase?

  • DrezDrez Registered User regular
    Does anyone have an opinion on Moonlighter vs Children of Morta for my next purchase?

    Sure, I have both.

    I kickstarted Moonlighter and it will always hold a special place in my heart, but it did strike me as though it gets repetitive quickly. I admit I didn't play toooooo deep into it. I liked what I played but I feel like it's something of an evolution of Racettear, but with a less interesting economy but a more developed dungeon delving meta game (or maybe the economy is the meta game, tbh). I like what I played of it, on Steam, and maybe they made it more interesting, but I did get a little stale at the time. Maybe someone who played it on the Switch or to a greater degree than I did can expound better on the current state of the game.

    Children of Moria is great. It also started to get a little frustrating, but that was more of a "I'm beating my head against the brick wall of my own lack of skill." But I feel like it has a lot of diversity. That said, the aesthetic is very dark and I found that wearing at times. Also, I feel like there are some more recent games that scratch a similar itch and do so...better. Like Hades.

    I'd probably give the overall nod to Moria, but they are both great and have distinct places in my library. I plan on revisiting Moonlighter soon, in fact. Maybe Moria further in the future after I finish Hades. Moonlighter kind of scratches that "vibrant/colorful" action rpg roguelike itch that Moria can't. I sometimes get tired of playing games - as good as they are - that are mired in literal and narrative darkness and Moonlighter is levels brighter than that. I just think Moria is probably a deeper game, all said. And I was disappointed that the merchant aspects of Moonlight felt like a step down from an older game (Racettear).

    So, probably Moria is my suggestion, but it depends on what kind of mood you're in. Get both, eventually. :D

    I bought Robotics Notes blu-rays a couple of years ago when I went through my anime collecting phase and it's still sitting in my closet, unwatched, next to Steins;Gate and like 30-40 other anime series I also bought and haven't watched.

    Should I buy this, having not watched the anime, so it can sit next to my Steins;Gate games in my Nintendo Switch library, also unplayed?

    My philosophy is: Why not do something once when you can not do something twice? At least that's my motto.

    If you're asking me if you should buy something only to not play it, my answer is totally no.

    I'm being tongue-in-cheek. A more holistic and honest question would be: Should I just go ahead and watch the anime and skip the game? Or watch the anime and then play it, or does it tread the exact same ground? Or should I skip the anime and get the game and play that instead? What are your thoughts for someone that hasn't experienced it all up to now but thought it looked interesting way back when?

    Finished Mario 64 and am now on to Mario Sunshine. I haven't played this game since it first released in 2002. I'm starting to remember why I never touched it again. This is easily the most dickishly designed Mario game. Even Lost Levels (SMB2J) doesn't boil my blood like this fucking game.

    I remember there was a
    Yoshi

    level that my brain couldn't even remotely wrap itself around and I just gave up, back in the Gamecube days.

    I assume that spoiler isn't really a spoiler anymore? I dunno. I haven't played Super Mario Sunshine in about 300 years.

    Any option has you in for a pretty mediocre time.

    The anime is squarely okay, not nearly as gripping as Steins;Gate, but it has some fun characters. It's way more slice-of-life.

    The VN has a lot of style going for it, and presents the story in a way more interesting manner, so definitely go for the game.

    Just started playing Resident Evil Revelations (the first short chapter) and the behind-the-shoulder view, tank controls, and free camera combo all work pretty well together.

    My partner (Carlos? Honestly forgot his name already), already seems like kind of an idiot. He got fucked up by a beached thing (not the death stranding kind) when said getting fucked up was rather avoidable. Interesting game so far though and I like the setting.

    I'm not trying to give a spoiler, but...

    In chapter 3, there's a boss battle which is a massive pain in the ass.

    Parker is no help at all.

    I had this game on Wii U, and gave up at this point. I had completely forgotten about that, until playing again on xbone two days ago, the memory came trickling back

    If there is ever a point in your life to scour the internet for help without any shame at all, this is it.

    Beat me on Wii U: Raybies
    Beat me on 360: Raybies666

    I remember when I had time to be good at games.

    Love seeing the vtuber and let’s player videos of Mario 64. A new generation to experience the pain of early 3D games.
