If there are fifteen of them... how can they all be 'final' fantasies?

 

philosoraptor.jpg?1291090164

Well, Fighting Fantasy got renamed to Final Fantasy (original NES game) b/c it could've been Square's last game with all of their on-going financial issues....but, it sold well enough to keep them in business. And well...the rest is history; Square's still at it.

 

EDIT:

He wanted to get out......

Spoiler

Yep. Also titled Final Fantasy b/c FF1 was supposed to also be Sagakushi's last. 

So much for that; he made it all the way to FFX.

It was cloudy for most of the morning, but we got to see the totality more or less and then good partial afterwords.

I didn't have the glasses so it just got slightly dim out here but nothing impressive.

can't connect to steam servers from about an hour. tried a lot of things... nothing works. I've been having a lot of issues with steam servers lately... I think I may start buying more DRM-free games from now on (Hi GOG)

That's pretty cool!  We were nowhere near that level of totality here in MA:

91% here, I think.  I didn't even look outside.  Total or bust.  2024 it is going to be a two hour drive from me so assuming I'm alive in seven years that will be an ideal time for me to see it.

Have the week long deals been phased out when I wasn't looking? I went over to steam to see if there was anything of interest in this week's deals, and I can't find any mention of it on steam. And the direct link in this thread's OP doesn't appear to work anymore.

Just got home from an 11 hour drive. Had I known it would be eleven hours, I might have stayed home but it should have been maybe a five hour drive except for the extra 70,000 people on I-57. Fortunately, we went down the night before. Anyway, we had a clean break in the clouds just in time for 2m40s of totality bliss. My phone took really poor photos but I mainly just experienced it and trusted NASA to take pictures.

Origin users REJOICE! FF15 will be available on the superior platform.

That's one less game I'll need to add as a non-Origin game to my library.

I think Carl is talking about the iOS version they are releasing.  He likes those skinny leg/feetless sprites.

Well, the first globe event in The Division ended this morning, after starting last Monday, and I'll just say...  I'm glad I ended up getting the 6 pieces for each set.  It took way too much time do to RNG but it was rewarding.

 

The new Critical Outbreak play mode for those 6 (or so missions) was incredible and was fun as hell.  I would talk more about it but its gone now...  Just back to the old Division again.  (Though they do have a new in game currency for their own loot boxes that you can earn from RNG or also for clearing certain commendations (not all of them are Uplay achievements but some are.)

i wasn't interested in any of those sets, so i just banked my 10k ge credits. waiting for d3-fnc or any set that might catch my fancy.

 

still at it's core, it's just a different way to play the same content. sure it'll get people to play again for a while, but after the ge ends, everyone is gone. i'm not alone when i say we're all waiting for the sequel, or at least until Destiny 2 gets released for pc...

170GB of HDD??!!? Holy smokes!!!

 

This must be the biggest game on the PC. This will take an eternity, even on Comcast Blast here, to download.

 

I hope they opt to make those 4K & 8K textures optional extra downloads (as free DLC's like Skyrim: Old Edition had for its HD textures). I basically will aim for 1440p, so...I only need textures up to that res', TBH.

 

Are they planning to do like audio in different languages? B/c if they are - eh, I might only just want English (if it's good) & maybe Japanese audio (if English VO sucks). Any other VO - nope, that DL should be optional. Don't need a game eating up that kind up HDD space, if I can avoid it.

thats a long post for a game you will never buy

Three codebases, three bugtesting channels.

 

How much money did EA and Microsoft dump on Squeenix for this to happen?

 

Edit: And wanna bet this is going to have Denuvo on top, too?

Tonight we're playing Versus Squad which was news to me since, last time I looked, we had no game set up for tonight.  You may remember it as "That game we thought wasn't as good as Nation Red but still pretty good" which should certainly inspire you to join us.  Maybe we'll be better and smarter players this time around and thus enjoy it more!  Or maybe we'll fail!  Either way, it'll certainly be a thing that happens and will involve shooting zombies so you better show up.

i wasn't interested in any of those sets, so i just banked my 10k ge credits. waiting for d3-fnc or any set that might catch my fancy.

 

still at it's core, it's just a different way to play the same content. sure it'll get people to play again for a while, but after the ge ends, everyone is gone. i'm not alone when i say we're all waiting for the sequel, or at least until Destiny 2 gets released for pc...

Of course its just a different way to play the same content...  That's kind of how loot games go.

 

I suspect I might take a break... lol I might not.  The commendations is a nice carrot to chase but one I likely can do without.  Will see how it goes.

 

That 10K you banked might be a good idea...  Not sure.  I've heard people say that the currency for the next event will be different, or might be different, but I suspect it will be the same myself.

 

As for the sets...  They're not the ones I normally play, (though 4pc Lonestar is a hoot to play.  Its like your staring in a big Hollywood action flick and you just empty your clip and hand the gun to someone else to reload while they hand you a freshly loaded gun,) I think having them will make next month's GE so much easier to do.

 

6 pc Lonestar with the right weapons and talents is extreme DPS.  (I suspect it will be nerfed at some point or not allowed to function in Last Stand.)

 

6 pc Final Measure might just be the new favorite for support/electronics in general.  But even if its just used to allow people to roll the Clear Skies mission, which is going to be part of the next set of GE (from the rumors I hear it will be), its well worth it.  (This GE running Clear Skies in about 5 minutes was possible and allowed big payouts in GE credits.)

 

6 pc Deadeye I find it limited but if people find the right spot on the Clear Skies map to "camp" one Deadeye might be able to keep the NPCs trapped at the spawns and away from the rest of the party.

 

Anyhow, I really want to see 6 pc Predator's Mark, 6 pc Sentry, and, like you, I think 6 pc D3-FNC could be a hell of allot of fun also...  (Though the shield can be used in other ways also.  Sentry (any handgun) and Lonestar (sawed off) both work with it.

Eh, I guess that's good, but that poorly-done TF2 clone that tried hard to give context in terms of story was never that good to begin with. 5 years too late imo.
