I still remember all the time I spent putting monsters to sleep/silenced/blinded, setting command to draw, and rigging up a pencil weighted down on the button to stock up on my spells for junctioning :D

And as many have said, I really think it has one of, and possibly the, strongest OSTs. Damn, now I wanna do a replay (it's been like 5 years since my last run).

I remember the day FF8 was released on PSX, I was coming off the high of FF7, but that 10 mile walk I took as a young kid to pickup my prepurchase from FuncoLand, did not seem worh it because FF8 dissapointed me.

I remember the FF8 card game and waiting to battle in certain locations so I wouldn't spread the randomize cards option to all the different areas. That and saving every time I won a new card no matter how terrible it was, lol.

Just completed Persona 3. Man, what an amazing game. I loved all the characters and the story itself. Still have to complete "The Answer," which I'll get around to sometime this week.

Skip the Answer. It adds very very very little to the game.

If anything, move on to Persona 4.

So I've finally started playing The Witcher 2.

And...

Is there a reason everyone was going so crazy over this? Because right now the best thing I can say about it is "It's not Dragon Age 2". As it stands, I plan on dropping it the second X-Com comes out.

I'm doing everything I can to like this game, trust me.

I mean, I dropped the first game after about an hour, but I'd heard that this one was so totally awesome and I really want it to be so totally awesome.

Did you play it? If so, could you please tell me what the Fuck?

I played the first like 5 years ago, and got like 20 hours in before getting lost and disinterested. While I liked what I saw from it, I abandoned the possibility of buying the 2nd because the first is so long, and I imagine a crucial requirement to really enjoying the sequel.

It's a lost franchise to me, but I do remember being pretty engrossed by it, chunky design choices aside.

EDIT: That said, why the hell would you give into the hype twice?

I know I'm definitely getting less out of the second game because I passed on the first so quickly, but I think if I played through the whole damn thing, the feelings of you fucking owe me would probably harm my opinion of the second far more than the greater context and understanding would help.

At least they tried to put some actual god damn animation in the second game. Shame Geralt moves with all the grace of Niko Bellic.

I almost bought it, but I never played White much after I beat the Elite Four and I'm pretty sure there's still stuff to do after, right?

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Definitely looks that way. I'm planning to go back to White and check out some of that postgame stuff before getting Black 2. I haven't touched White since beating it.

Thank you for the RPS article. I had missed that this week.

Personally, I think 'innovation' in video games is mostly dead. There isn't much innovation, particularly in AAA titles. So, mostly we are looking for something fun to play, even if it is familiar.

Yes, many are playing on nostalgia. (Leisure Suit Larry, Wastefall 2) But, I didn't support The Banner Saga, Lilly Looking Through and Gianna Sisters because of nostalgia. I supported them because they looked like games I wanted to play.

I think with Obsidian it is kinda a special case. While there is certainly nostalgia driving that from the Black Isle days, I think there are many who want to see what Obsidian can do with their own IP, rather than having them working on someone else's IP. Personally, I haven't gotten around to supporting it yet, and I haven't decided if I will.

Didn't John Carmack say the same thing last year and iterate that his job is not to be creative, but to give the people exactly what they want.

Congrats on trying the sequel, I liked the first but after a certain point creation and proper use of potions became necessary and I quickly lost interest. Also it liked to crash my PC every half hour :(

And if I recall correctly you could never win back special cards once lost? I hope someday SE can make another game as out there as FF8.

God damnit, Witcher 2.

If you're going to remind me of Suikoden, making me win a fucking dice game to advance the plot is not the way to do it.

I've been bitching a lot, but the plot seems half-way decent, some of the creatures are really neat, and the conversations sound... well, like conversations, rather than the pre-recorded voice clips being played in sequence that most other games have.

Then on the negative side again, this game has a character named fucking Dethmold. Is he a fucking Final Fantasy IV boss or some shit?

Side quest dawg. No need to finish it.

How can you hate on Witcher 2? All it is a mature Zelda game with tits. So that means it is better than any Zelda game :D

(the above is complete sarcasm. Witcher 2 however is still a titty fucking awesome game)

Hey, I got through it after a few tries. Just saying it's horribly stupid.

Then I did this ritual thing where I heard the same five fucking lines repeated again and again for several minutes while I fought monsters for some reason that's never really explained, then watched a cutscene that looked nothing like it was supposed to.
