Well, even if you don't, I super recommend at the very, very least listening to:

Donkey Kong Country: Kong in Concert

Donkey Kong Country 2: Serious Monkey Business

They are so fantastic.

Not sure how I missed that Zelda project. I'm gonna have to keep an eye on that.


And since this is the RPG thread, I'll remind people that this is still coming out. It will be free.

This is my favorite song in FF6, but I've never found a remix of it that I care for.

No? You need to get all the non-DLC weapons for the final endings (which are totally fucking worth jumping through hoops for), and I'm pretty sure you don't have to do any gardening or fishing for those.


There's no weapon associated with that quest?

Then why the Fuck did I spend so much time fishing?

Was there an achievement for it?

Probably. The fishing quest is a long-ass quest chain.

And can't you buy any weapons you miss, anyway?

I'm pretty sure the answer is "yes". Cavia got over most of their horrible "we really hate our players" tendencies with Drakengard.

The series of fishing quests were needed for 100% quest complete, but I don't think even the achievement needed 100%, maybe 60%~90% quest complete.

The achievement was catching some big hard fish, and you could only hook/win pulling it up with highest fishing rank. Which was only rewarded from doing the fishing quests.

None of those were requirements for any of the 3 extra endings as far as I remember. ;)

Edit: I'm pretty sure you couldn't buy the weapon you get from flashback scene, but you could repeat that scene over and over (to level/farm) anyway.

Kinda funny. They could make a game functionally identical and just call it "a top-down Zelda game", but saying "Link to the Past 2" gets them so much more attention.

Put VII behind me, think I'll try out V next. I figure I'll just review the entire franchise by year's end.

Make sure you do the SNES (or port) version of IV! The DS remake was lame.

I love V, but now that I think about it, it may be because it's one of the more systems-focused Final Fantasies. Also, it has Faris.

I'll check out your review of VII tomorrow; it's getting late here.

That's weird that you didn't give IV a 10.

Or at least a higher score than VII.

You're weird.

Well, I got up to the last floor in non-Diggle Gods Dungeons of Dredmor yesterday.

And today, I warped to the wrong place and Lord Dredmor killed me :cold:

However, I've learned a bit more about how various items, stats, etc. work during that run, and I also got an achievement for Dredmor killing me, so I guess it wasn't a total loss...

Hmmm. Crotch, did you accept the Dungeons of Dredmor gift? It says you haven't accepted it on my side but you clearly downloaded and played it since I gifted it to you then.

The Japanese title of Link to the Past essentially got the same name for that game with a 2 slapped on the end. So I'm considering it Link to the Past 2 until I am told otherwise.

Did it give you Conquest of the Wizardlands too? That expansion wasn't out when I had the "Complete" Edition but Steam says you own it. Just a bit curious.

Just wondering if my second copy that isn't broken includes it or not. Normally it doesn't, but there's always the possibility.

Nope. Just the first expansion. Picked up the others because they were free and $3, respectively.

hmm, good catch

they are confirming that it is a direct sequel... which i guess would be the first direct sequel to a zelda game since link's adventure?

They're playing it as "The same world as Link to the Past, but different dungeons." I haven't head confirmation on whether it's the same link or not, but I'm assuming not. Possibly someone in the same direct blood line. Not that it really matters though.

Re-opened Steam and it's gone. Must have just been a cached inventory.

It puts me in a bad mood that I can't properly review XI for this project. The community is far from dead but it's just too monumental a game to explore. I might just avoid both MMOs altogether.
