In the latest installment of the exciting RPG Thread SaGa:

RPG Kickstarter Discussions!

The RPGs Everyone's Currently Playing!

Complaining About Final Fantasy!

And much, much more! So the usual, in other words.

I don't really have anything else to add right now, other than:
- I hope to wrap up Tales of the Abyss soon
- I probably won't wrap up Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life anytime soon
- A-couple-days-old news, but Shin Megami Tensei IV is $50, holy shit O_O; There better be some really sweet bonus items...

Tje 3DS is just sooo good though. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the road, then transfer save back to WiiU when I'm back.

Really liked the demo of Etrian Odyssey 4. Always assumed I'd hate a dungeon crawler but something in that demo just clicked, so now I have to keep an eye out for a sale...

I really need to get a 3DS. Some awesome rpg's coming. The old DS kinda slacked off on the RPGs towards the end if its run, so I have gotten away from handheld RPGs.

I still have a pretty big DS backlog, and it's looking like my now-small 3DS one might be just as large within a few years. It never ends @_@

Speaking of 3DS, we might be getting Fantasy Life! Fingers crossed!

Finished the first of the four temples in Persona 2.
(Is there an SMT game that doesnt have you visiting 4 temples? Or rather "The 4 Temples")

I think I'm about 40 hours into it. Enjoying it, but I'd also like to be done and move on to other things in my backlog.

The tragic story behind Cid, loosely paraphrased:

"Shera, stop checking those oxygen tanks"

"Ah, ok..."

"Shera, seriously, we're about to launch the rocket..."

"Just give me a second."

"You'll die."

"It's ok, I don't mind."

I have hesitated playing Persona 2:EP because of the huge time sink I have heard about it being. Is it really that grindy or just long, and how does it compare in difficulty with other SMT games like Nocturn?

Real talk though, the Aeris scene was much cooler than I remembered. The Jenova fight to her theme song was on point.

... and then it goes into a nighttime version of the interior of the crystal ball, yes.

Anyway. The Kickstarter is over.

Posted Image

$4.189 million via Kickstarter. The PayPal total is unknown, but based on what it was earlier today, I'd guess somewhere around $135,000. Another $200,000 out of the pocketbooks of inXile's CEO Bryan Fargo and this crazy motherfucker. Estimated release date is early 2015.

But man, you know who's gotta be happy about this? Fuckin' Monte Cook, that's who. Dude used to be a major designer at TSR/WotC, did a shitload of Planescape and 3e stuff, left in defeat, and decided to make his own thing from the ground up. Not only did that turn out way better than he expected, but now Torment is basically a $4.5 million advertisement for his project.

So this is the comeback of the old school RPGs.

Surprised no Japanese team has not tried to do something with kickstarter or the likes.

No, but that doesn't stop western developers from creating games similar to some of the older games from Japan such as this (which is a mix of a few games):

^ Truth.

Aeris is dead? Let's go snowboarding.

And before that, if you dodge her punch, have a comedy relief scene with Elena.

...yeah, FFVII's weird like that.

I didn't nail the Elena Punch Dodge until like the third time I played FFVII.

Here's what happens if you succeed (skip ahead to around 4:30):
