Re: Pentagulia's destruction

A parallel: there's a moment in a novel I won't name when a reckless politician, on a passenger train whose engine has broken down, urges that they be switched to an old coal engine instead of waiting for another diesel engine. He eventually harangues the operator into doing so, even though the olde...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I'm replaying Phantasy Star IV on the Genesis Classics collection for the Switch. The game still holds up for me. The initial scenes with the school principal are a study in doing a lot of character development with little dialogue, and each interparty dialogue since has been thoroughly entertaining...

Merry Christmas everyone!

Besides spending much of the day keeping baby!Sonic entertained, I played Azul (an excellent board game) with family, played some Red Dead Redemption 2 and Mario Party, and I played with blocks.

Re: Playstation Classic Edition!

The only two games on there that I (a) might play and (b) don't have are Wild Arms and Persona, so it's a no go for me. If I ever want to relive my Cool Boarders 2 days, I can hook up my PS2 like anyone else.

(Having Arc convenient and ready to play might have done it for me.)

Re: Song of the moment

The intro music to Halt and Catch Fire, because I've been watching the show and the intro is that good to me.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I'm playing Dragon Quest XI. I love it so far. It feels as fresh and exciting as DQ8 did, and it's tapping into my inveterate capacity for roaming cities looking for pots to break. Also, while it's early in the story, I'm intrigued by what direction it's going in. I have a few guesses.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've bounced hard off of Octopath Traveler. I'm at ~25 hours and don't have interest in playing further at the moment.

I'm waiting for Shenmue I and II to come out. I'll play those games (as I have time) until Dragon Quest XI is released in the US.

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: 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...
