Final Fantasy 9 is up for $20 and change. 

Waiting for reviews because I know Square Enix fucked this up somehow.

2 is adding a lot of features and power ups. It looked like it was worth the upgrade. I'd guess they'll add in their own MiiVerse substitute like Splatoon did too.

There should be a lot more levels overall thanks to the much larger player-base.


Probably worth it but I’m still too cheap to get a Switch for it.

Well, the achievement list is ridiculous.

Happy Birthday AWP. 48 myself, pretty much limited to after hours playing with a family and then too tired to play anything in depth. Although, boy is nine now and has refreshed my gaming habit. So I don’t see the backlog as a waste now. Before he found interest, I was kinda feeling like a hoarder.

Yeah, I don't think I'm gonna 100% this game. I enjoyed Final Fantasy 9 when it first came out but I had to force myself to finish and was glad when it was finally over.

48 here.  Whoever said 50 is young is full of shit.  50 is 2/3 dead.

 

I think older gamers are more appreciative of games these days than younger people simply because we have seen how far they have come in our lifetime (ColecoVision 1981 was my start).  I lost count of the number of games that are ripped by people across the internet (resetera and reddit I am looking at you) but I play them anyway and find them to be quite enjoyable.  I think being a programmer has something to do with that too as I know how hard it is to build complex programs/systems like games.

 

Glad to see I am not the only older gamer here.

37 here. Hope to continue playing well beyond that age.

 

First console was an NES, though I messed with my brother's atari before that without knowing what I was doing.

I read an article not to long ago talking about how most forums like this don’t attract young people, they stick to reddit, Snapchat and other social media in app form.

Mario Maker 2 looks great, I never had a Wii U so I’ll snap that up for Switch as well as Link to the Past.

So is FFIX headed for a sale soon or do I drop the $20 on it now...

i'd assume many of us grew up on forums as well as BBS/IRC before that. While I appreciate reddit and discord, I still prefer the forum interface.

Hellblade coming to switch. I love titles crossing to different platforms. But it’s hard for me to imagine the “hellblade experience” on a switch. I guess your ear buds on a bus can work.


Oh man, I can’t imagine playing Hellblade in public. I’d be looking around all the damn time trying to see if the voices were coming from the game, from real people, or from inside my own damn head. Talk about immersion!

On another Switch note, I legit screamed when I realized it was Link’s Awakening remastered. I’m so pumped to play that.

And on the age discussion, I just turned 36 on Monday, so happy February bday to AWP and any others. Also happy to see so many 30+ cheap ass fun lovers in this forum. As they say, growing old is inevitable, but growing up is a choice :)

Happy birthday, awp and any other recent birthdays.  I turned 43 last month.  First system was an Atari 2600, with Pac-Man and Combat packins.

 

So is FFIX headed for a sale soon or do I drop the $20 on it now...

It's not currently counting down.

Happy birthday AWP - I don't post often but thought i'd share that I read every post mostly every day. Thanks for being one of the coolest experiences online.

 

N.B. Also thought I was the elder here... 36! NES was my first console... then got a Colecovision! lol

Happy belated birthday Bloomy! If anyone deserves to be given a happy birthday, it’s you for all you do for us here!

And happy birthday to everyone else with recent birthdays as well! May you play video games up until your dying breath with a controller in your hand and a beer in the other.

A decent second choice after Tyrion Lannister's preferred way.

Sucks that Final Fantasy is full price. It was 10 or 20% off when it launched on PS4 a few months ago.

 

Edit: It is Play Anywhere though. I don't think that was announced before. I don't know if you'd be able to mod it like the Steam version though.

Nothing wrong with that, I waited for Madden 19 to hit EA Access. I bought a used copy for of Madden 19 for PS4 at GS with my 20% off B-Day coupon. I hope Sony learns they missed a serious opportunity in offering EA Access as well (they like won't though).

 

Edit: My guess is that NBA Live 19 will hit EA Access shortly after the season ends.

For those that renewed their gold through the $2/2 month promo on the X1, when did the 2nd month show up in the process? I'll renew in a few days and was just wondering.
