  • Have you played any Dragon Quest games?

    It’s one of those series I always mean to play but never do. Like a lot of RPGs really
    Did you ever play Xenoblade Chronicles 2?

    Despite the gripes people have with it, it really clicks with me.
    I love having the blades do different tasks both in battle and in the overworld.

    I feel like this will be what the "7th party member" will essentially be like in Xeno3.

    No, I played the first but never got to the second. Long RPGs I do have a thing where I don't start them but like them.

    But I'm also playing Red Dead Redemption 2 which is also a long game.
    I wanted to check by and see how you were doing.

    If I may ask, what's your favorite 3d Zelda title?

    There’s definitely tedium in old Metal Gear games. The original 1 and 2 have stuff that might as well be a joke on the player.

    One thing I should mention about MGS3D is that you can hunch over and walk around (I believe this was a thing in Peace Walker), which is sort of a compromise to normal walking while exposed and crawling around inefficiently.

    Peace Walker is weird because it’s basically MGS 5 in all but name, but it’s treated as a side game
    What is your opinion on Fire Emblem Tharcia: 776: at least from what you heard/played?

    I don't know much about the game.
    However, it does seem weird to me that we have a midquel with a presumption on how certain events in the first game went (like marriages).
    bobjr
    bobjr
    It’s difficult but in a way where you can also break the game yourself, and has a bunch of unique things for the series id like to see come back in some way.

    But that’s a problem with any game that gives you options like that. Roy could marry 6 women in his game but they go with Lilina officially more often than anything else

    I was mentioning this in the sense that Tharcia 776 operates with assumptions with Genealogy Part I. Fire Emblem Binding Blade doesn't have a follow up, and I think for the most part, Blazing Sword doesn't have a specific set up with it's pairings for Binding Blade to work.

    Though I heard that both Tharcia 776 and Blazing Sword retcon a few things from their predecessors, but I cannot hold testimony to that.

    But maybe Tharcia doesn't do that. After all, Lief's parents don't change in Part I from what I gathered. I guess I don't really know to be honest.
    Hi! Nice to see old members still around! I don't remember if we ever chatted, but it's still nice to know I'm not the only old member still around. Btw, did 95% of all the old mods and admins leave or did they just change their names? I only recognize Ellie, Coronis and Kirby (and Serebii of course). (one question, should be okay, right? ;) )

    I’m sure name changes happened but things did change a little, especially from chat type stuff moving to discord
    How are you doing?

    I have to do a presentation in hopes I get hired by a community college. I have to present a topic on aerobic respiration.

    I'm also playing Fire Emblem Three Houses. I'm playing it on Hard, and I already get stressed out trying to plan stuff out.

    F-Zero GX was like that for me. Man did I feel powerful after finally beating all chapters in story mode in all difficulties. You had to do it that way to unlock all the characters (unless you found an AX machine, and well, good luck on that).
    Auraninja

    Fire Emblem is more stressful because I don't want bad decisions to cost me something throughout the rest of the game. I picked Hard because that seemed to be the more appropriate difficulty level (although I did the DLC on Normal).
    bobjr
    bobjr
    New Fire Emblem has this weird thing where normal can feel too easy and hard can sometimes feel too hard.
    I have this bad tendency to not add the word "not" to sentences.

    This landed me in trouble here where I said something like "There is just one type of gay person", when I meant "There is not just one type of gay person".

    I'm glad people online give you the chance to explain yourself before you double down, lol!

    I have kind of an opposite problem where I’ll list something twice if I’m writing a big thing, so I have to delete it so I don’t sound redundant

    One of my other problems when I type is that I will sometimes type what I hear in the background as it interrrupts my thinking.

    Sometimes I listen to VG music on headphones just so I don't hear background noise.
    Hey, I was going to just let you know that my last surviving grandfather was likely going to pass away.

    It's a sad moment right now for the family.
    bobjr
    bobjr
    I'm sorry to hear that, it's always rough in that situation for sure, and any family planning around it often just adds more stress.
    Auraninja

    My grandfather has since passed away.
    I decided to take a break on Pokemon: Shining Pearl in order to play some of Fire Emblem Three Houses.

    Can't believe the game came out two years ago. It feels longer than that, actually.
    Do you dislike It Takes Two, or are you more bewildered that it was in the Family category?

    I know in an earlier back-and-forth we've had, you said you replace it if you had the chance, but do you dislike the game, or don't think it was GotY material?
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    This reminds me of seeing a random tweet of someone getting mad at that Family Guy skit of Peter being Bojack Horseman.
    I know FG has some problematic jokes, but that shouldn't even be on the radar.

    But yeah, I get what you're saying. It's like when people say animation isn't a genre. You can tell various stories with the same kind of medium.

    Bojack is a show I have a lot to say on, but it did have this weird initial backlash that it did look like a kids show, instead of going for a more unique visual style.

    It’s funny because Tuca and Bertie is the one that feels like an adult nicktoon, but in a good way
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I've heard good things about both shows. For Bojack Horseman, I heard that the show delves into the mental psyche with topics like depression, while Tuca and Bertie has earnest discussions about the lives of women and what they go through.

    I don't watch a lot of television. The furry show I stuck to was Beastars.
    I like Gohin, the panda voiced by Keith Silverstein who is all like "Shut the hell up!".
    I have a question about posting on the forums?

    I know double posting is often discouraged, but if it's been about a month and you had something new to add to the discussion even though you were the last person to post, is it acceptable? I wanted to post in the Smash Bros. thread regarding the latest patch (being the final character balance patch).
    bobjr
    bobjr
    If it's been some time it's more accepted. The main problem was when post count was more of a thing and people would spam to increase it.
    Is Cyberpunk 2077 RPG enough to be an RPG?

    I need to know this, so I can justify my anger.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I do feel like there were better contenders at least. I haven't played them but I heard good things about games like NEO:TWEWY for example.

    Just feels odd to put it in a category.

    I also remember that one woman who got bogged down my angry gamers because she gave it a lower review score.

    If I could replace It Takes Two that would be the slot, but they did make it hard to complain about great games that were more genre defining rather than expanding on the genre.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I feel like there are different games that fill different "genre molds". Some follow the genre formula to a T, some expand the genre, and some define its own genre. Dragon Quest is a good example of the first one. It doesn't do anything that new and is rather trope-y, but it does it's part well. I'm curious about this "Dragon Quest for adults" that DQXII is supposed to be, but XI followed the formula closely.
    Not everyone at Gamefaqs was a total nimrod, but going through some of the threads that would get nuked here in an instant makes me not really miss it.

    I got rid of my account there during the BBND days.

    My favorite is the guy who wrote a Persona 2 guide then because of the religious references and becoming a born again Christian openly denounced it.

    I asked my friend, who had an account there, and he might have remembered that.

    I'm still shocked Persona/SMT made it over here without heavy censorship, especially the latter.
    I'm starting to get those post Covid symptoms.

    It hasn't been very fun. Hopefully, I'll live when the last Smash fighter is released, lol.
    When I see your icon in its smallest form, I think of the King in the Zelda Cd-i games saying, "Hmm, how can we help?"

    Or maybe that's a recent thing.

    Those games are at the point where it's weird to outright hate them now.

    I remember seeing the trailers for myself back in the day on Youtube and wanting them to be edited so that they say really dumb things.
    This must of been a collective thought since we got Youtube Poops afterwards.

    Though some of the in between cutscenes are pretty disturbing.
    Got over the Covid about a week ago. I still have some side effects, but I shouldn't be contagious, and I don't have a fever anymore.
    bobjr
    bobjr
    That's good to hear, hopefully nothing is permanent.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    That would be hard to tell at this point.
    At the very least, I don't have breathing problems.

    Right now, I'm just very tired.
    Just letting you know that I had a COVID infection since Saturday, but I'm starting to feel better now.

    (I was one of the careful ones, why me?)
    bobjr
    bobjr
    It spreads so easily even people taking the most care can get it just because of things they need to do. Thankfully it wasn't a bad one.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    Between me and the two people I live with (mom and brother), I was genuinely the most careful. But whatevs, I think I’ll feel better fairly soon anyway.

    Part 7 is the best Jojo part I think. It just beats out Part 4

    Part 8 is great as well. Better than part 4 in my opinion.
