Re: Blind witches

Those examples are both about in-game graphics, this is a detail in an FMV (in the actual animation, not playback/encoding). Performance would not be affected.


"Design or performance." To clarify, I agree with Shiva Indis's explanation that this is a design choice.

Re: What is Canon?

I would say any published game (yes, including Dragon Song) definitely qualifies as canon unless one of the developers says otherwise. (Kei Shigema's explanation as paraphrased by Imperial Knight gets at this.) In addition, I would say that the manga and novels may also qualify as canon, as they tel...

Re: Blind witches

There's an article to be written about missing body parts for the sake of overall design or performance. It makes me think of the footless characters in Fire Emblem: Awakening or the faceless NPCs in Persona 5:

Re: Making this thread so that I can ask questions that probably have short answers

1. It's a still from the intro video for Lunar: SSSC. https://youtu.be/71ripBa8Ga8?t=38s . With a reverse image search I found this still from a YouTube video of the Making Of Lunar film: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/r3QtXqTaRos/maxresdefault.jpg We have this version on the Lunar-Net page, which features ...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Much of my gaming time suddenly disappeared for obvious reasons. At least right now I don't have the time for deep sustained dives into games, so I've been playing in shorter spurts: Skyrim, Phantasy Star IV, and Raft have all received some attention.

So I have a baby

One event that happened last month deserves mention here: my wife and I welcomed a baby into the world. He's healthy, happy, and will someday learn not to wake us up in the middle of the night.

Maybe the next time I replay Lunar I'll have a little audience. :D

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I played through half of Growlanser 2. I may return, but in the interim I've been distracted by playing Skyrim for the Switch. (I am committed to seeing my Orc Hammerwielder Miranda through.) I've also been playing Into the Breach. From the developers of FTL, it indeed feels like a turn-based tile s...

Re: I visit this site once and a while because...

I came here from AOL (Althena's Court), and never did more than lurk at the Shrine of Ghaleon and WDMB.

I did post at lunareb.com, but only briefly and after I had already been active here.

Re: What's your favorite turn-based NON-Lunar RPG?

I hate picking favorites. Certainly, I can't pick a single one. That would be a whim of the moment, since there are a few games in the specified category that I frequently turn to for happy memories, for solace, for inspiration, or for rumination. So gut check time: what comes up? Chrono Cross is on...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

^ I really hope there's a source for that. Like, peeing on Mel? Is that juvenile writing or a fairly plausible thing for a rascal kid to do? Kyle never had much of a development character-wise in the story in seemingly any of it's iterations which is really unfortunate. My own disclaimer: as an Engl...

Re: Jess's Mom

^ See, on the one hand I've thought that explanation as well, that Nash was looking for either Luna or Quark, and that Ghaleon needed to find Quark in order to be able to act. On the other hand, why wouldn't Ghaleon already know (generally) where Quark was? Something about that trip feels like an ex...

Re: Song of the moment

They Might Be Giants' album I Like Fun. Specifically Last Wave. Despite the bluntness of the lyrics, I find it to be a motivating song.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

MaroonChan, that's at least the fourth time in a row you've been playing that game. What's going on?

Still playing Avernum 3. I'm just over halfway through now, judging by the map.

On a whim I also got the tabletop game Dairyman. It's a quick little die-rolling game like Farkle.

Re: What is a good job?

Regarding jobs, it's useful to keep in mind that any field will probably demand some hard skills and some soft skills, and hiring managers like that you have at least one of a few soft skills or qualities: communication, leadership, analysis, integrity, and responsibility. (Those are also useful for...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I finally finished XC2. It was a good game, though I realized while playing it that I'd be happier with fewer cutscenes or cutscenes that were more varied in their film-making approaches. The heavy reliance on cutscenes towards the end made me wish I were playing the game that had been fun up to the...

I'd say it's toxic to make a post where you attack other members of the forum, representing others as "fringe" and in a "bubble" or "clique." That's a kind of passive aggression that's equivalent to a person claiming they want no drama but then causing drama in how they...

^ lol, okay, Yoda's a good counterpoint there. In Episode 5 Luke describes looking for a "great warrior" - he rejects Yoda not because he's green or alien but because he's small. I'll have to think about that.

Re: What are your thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi (WARNING! SPOILERS DISCUSSED HERE!)

Honestly, I don't know why Holdo didn't just airlock him for that. That would feel more new-era Battlestar Galactica than Star Wars , though I guess we already had a renegade fleet fleeing some Cylon-equivalents. To say the least, if this were a TV series I'd expect the repercussions of Poe's actio...
