Sorry to change gears here, but I couldn't find a relevant thread to ask: what is the best free program for excel style spreadsheets? My video game collection is getting out of control (1000+ titles) so I need a good database program to inventory all my games. I refuse to pay an annual fee for excel, but I'd like something with a similar interface. Most seem to recommend Google docs but isn't it exclusively cloud based? I need a program that can save and back up the spreadsheet to my hard drive(s). Recommendations are welcome, and apologies for derailing the discussion here.

Take a look at my signature. Dig through my spreadsheet and see how I set it up. It works amazingly well. Cloud based is 100% the way you want to go. You'll never lose the file. You can share it with whoever you want (and lock it to protect it). You can update it on your PC, your phone, your tablet, etc and it's always up to date and the same everywhere.

Just saw that FF8R pre-orders get a theme and I had to get it for that. It’s not even a good theme, but good god, the menu sounds. Possibly the only menu sounds more nostalgic for me are Xenosaga Episode I’s, and I’m not even sure of that.

Those Fuck ing bastards.

Just *maybe* it will be sold seperately down the road, I know Mega Man 11 had a theme as preorder bonus, but they ended up selling it for couple bucks as well.

They never release the FFVII preorder theme so don't count on it.

Is this where we boycott Square for censoring Final Fantasy VIII remastered?

Somehow, I think I will be able to soldier on, despite this Siren-related omission. I'm sure it will be a terrible burden, but I will endure. I'm sure Final Fantasy VIII, one of my favourite of the series, will be SOOOOO much different thanks to the inclusion of additional feathers.

 

Seriously though, I should not be looking forward so much to a game I've played multiple times, on multiple different platforms. It's kind of indecent how SquareEnix gets away with selling me these games over and over again. But I still want a copy of Final Fantasy VIII remastered on my Switch.

The Rinoa change to me just looks like they updated some of the model geometry, not so much intentional censorship. The Siren change looks pretty damn intentional, but I don't know that I really want to see pubes in my summons anyway.

 

As much as I'm not for censorship, in the interest of choosing my battles this really isn't a big deal to me.

Sad how much mental bandwidth some folks are wasting on this non issue. Looking forward to FF8.

I'd say it's clearly changed but it's so minor it doesn't matter. Probably just looked better this way with the significantly higher clarity you get from the new models.

Didn't Shiva have pubes like Siren?

 

Siren wasn't worth summoning anyways.

Not after you get Doomtrain, anyway. Before then there are some fights she’s not bad for, status effects can be very useful in FFVIII since enemies scale with you.

It appears the Yu-No CE is now sold out at the NISA website.  I checked around a week ago and there was still around 25% stock left.  Thought I was safe waiting a bit.  I'll probably just pick up the Day One Edition then.

Thanks for that as I’m tempted to buy My Hero at that price since I still have GCU.

if i remembered this correctly. the game was pulled off steam for pushing their political ideology with art mocking the chinese president. they got their game review bombed, chinese social media account banned, and lost their publishers.

pretty stupid move to push politics in a horror game or any game in general.


The situation in China goes beyond politics. It’s not a nice government to live under.

What he means is once government pressure and fear cause companies to cower in releasing their work, then that is actual censorship we should all be worried about.

And what's wrong with politics and messaging in games? I invite it. It's absolutely hypocritical to be against censorship and then want games to be message neutral.

The reason games STILL don't get the respect they deserve and keep gettinh scapegoated unlike movies, which a re just as super violent is that games have failed to yet deliver more meaningful messages and experiences that go beyobd tropes and fantasy.

Movies can deliver thoughtful experiences that touch on real issues that give people insights into the world around them. Games can and need to do more of this.

In short, bring on the messages, the politics, and the controversial issues. The medium will be much better for it.

And if our government and others then try to attack the medium for expressing and exchanging ideas and messages, then my friends THAT is censorship worth fighting about.

I don’t think they really thought out what it was, it was just some sort of “decency” plate. I think Shiva has one too.

I think the difference between Siren and Shiva is the texture. Siren's is yellow and has a rougher texture (akin to feathers or hair) while Shiva's is smooth like wearing a bikini.

How about no, 2 things can be true at the same time. 

None of this absolves Sony from being complete shit heads on their pathetic censorship, "anime tiddies" or not... What a fucking strawman if I've ever seen one. One glance at this tards twitter account tells you all you need to know.
