Tool.

 

That's not what the kids that had consoles when they were growing up played these "awesome" JRPGs on?

I'm pretty sure Phantasy Star and Shining Force were on Sega consoles. Agarest from what I've played so far is more like Shining Force than Final Fantasy. Yes I've played Tactics and I stand by my statement.

Nope, didn't have one of those either.

I have a crapton of (unplayed) JRPGs for PS2, so throw Sony in there too. Warren is just flaunting his disdain for the revolting console peasantry.

Seriously, they look terrible and they always have. I own Ni No Kuni, but that's just because it's a Studio Ghibli thing. Most of the rest of these things look terrible in both a graphical and gameplay sense.

I always thought that consoles were inferior to PCs for gaming purposes, and for the most part, that remains true, but it was much more so prior to the XBOX 360-PS3 era. I still think Nintendo consoles are primarily for people with kids or people who are kids.

Complete and utter bunk. Sorry, but you sound completely ignorant of consoles, so I am not sure why you would even bother making such a comment. I'd put the SNES/PS1 era of console RPGs as some of the best around, and clearly superior to anything on the PC until the introduction of Baldur's Gate and Planescape.

ftfy

My last consoles were SNES and Genesis/MegaDrive, I treasure those days and still play some games through emulators. I liked the PS1, but didn't want it over PC, so didn't bought it.

My kids have a Wii, and I must say the Nintendo games are still fantastic: Mario, Zelda, Metroid...

So.. the QUBE Director's Cut isn't free to previous owners. It's unlocked on the store now, and the dev made a thread for it. He's not honoring his last post from July about it going to be free. Previous owners get a 50% off discount..

That's a dick move. If they hadn't said anything about making it a free update for previous owners it'd be one thing, but going back on their word is just setting people up to be annoyed with them. I'm going to assume they're charging for it now because they don't have faith that the console versions coming out will make their money back.

Not completely ignorant. 

 

However, if you seriously think that the kind of stuff that was on SNES and PS1 was better than things like Dark Queen of Krynn, Wasteland, and Pool of Radiance, then you and I have very different ideas about what constitutes a good RPG.

Agarest is the JRPG version of Leisure Suit Larry. The whole point is for it to be as sexually-themed as possible. The whole series is like that. Might as well play some weaboo eroge if all you're going to get out of the boring and repetitive battles are a few drawings of scantily-clad anime chicks.

Well, now I'm scared away by more than the DLC.

 

The way you say it it almost sounds like Fire Emblem. Guess I might pick it up after all, backlog be damned.

I'd pick up the Fire Emblem games if they were on Steam.

Please tell the whole series that I am unavailable for meetings behind Family Dollar stores or in alleys adjacent to strip clubs.

Nintendo is definitely for stupid little kids.

 

Anyway, Fiesta Online and Muffin Knight just released on Steam.  Any serious adult PC gamers going to play these?

Muffin Knight I played a lot of on Android, and it's actually a pretty fun game similar to Super Crate Box. With more muffins. So it's better.

 

I was almost going to try Fiesta Online, until I read it's played by a friendly community. I don't like when games lie to me.

I always pretend to be a 13 year old girl in MMOs and all the adults are very friendly to me and give me free things.

We could use a nice price glitch to kill this conversation before it goes any further.

 

Or a Magicka sale.

Go back and play those, see how well those rose colored glasses hold up. Cause I have gone back and played more than a few RPGs from that console era and they are still great experiences.

You would be the local expert on 13 year old girls.

I've gone back and played Deathlord and Wasteland multiple times.  They hold up just as well.

 

There is one fundamental difference however... CRPGs have evolved over time.  Console RPGs haven't evolved as much, so modern ones are closer to classic ones.
