I started playing Legend of Dragoon. This game is fucking awful, why did people like it?

The localization alone is enough to turn me off.

I have no idea. It had good CGI cutscenes, that's about it. The rest is trash.

Expensive (for the time) Sony developed PS1 exclusive FF-like RPG with an ungodly number of cutscenes during a lull in Final Fantasy/Square releases. (Since they were working on the movie.)

IIRC, it megabombed in Japan, like 95% of its sales were in the U.S./U.K. If I also remember correctly, when they re-released it digitally it wasn't even put on the Japan PSN Store initially?

 :lol

That game was terrible. It was one of Sony's only first party big budget rpgs so people bought it but yeah it sucks. I think I played like the first disc before I bailed. White Knight Story for that gen. Not sure what the PS2 equivelent was since Dark Cloud was actually legit. PS4 hasn't seemed to have a one either but that's more because Sony isn't funding 1st party jrpgs anymore.

Cold Steel 3 PS4



Kinda cool design via faction since CS3 should be the culmination of every faction's story in one big mid-chapter ending of the franchise game.

I've got to say, I've really enjoyed having a gaming computer. Playing stuff like Doom, Gears 4, Quantum Break, and Vanquish on Ultra settings in 60fps is pretty amazing.

Recently I spent over $3,000 pretty much on games and electronics and before that I bought some furniture for our basement. I gotta say its a pretty cool little nerd mecca.

I assume this is the same Tim Rogers who used to write 10,000 word rambling essays back in the early 2000's. If so, he looks exactly what I expect him to. Though I agree 100% with the premise of the video, just not the choice of haircut!

the world apparently sucks, generic with little interaction or population, and apparently unlike Saints Row all the missions are set in it, you just go to place fight dude and go other place, rather than locations specifically setup for the missions

so like a whole game of clearing out those random bases of dudes with something to press a button on or shoot or whatever they'd have all over the map in The Third and IV and Gat out of Hell; at least that's what Volition's one stream looked like was just that over and over all over the map

Quote from: Kotaku
What tickles the hell out of me here is that all of the agents warp into vehicles with this cool animation, but when it’s time to leave they just open the door and step out.

oh god watching IGN quick look equivalent?, they are not only terrible at using the controls they can't figure the game out because they aren't following any directions or indicators and keep blaming the game as being complicated in design and not explaining things when there's literally arrows all over the screen pointing where to go which has an indicator with distance... at one point until someone in chat finally tells them they're driving around the same block over and over looking for a truck to chase and the game is trying to tell them to go inside a building

they also talked about Mars Attacks for like two minutes before both saying they don't remember anything about it and haven't really seen it

anyway, after i bailed out of that by muting them, game looks like it has less traffic and pedestrians on the streets than saints row 2 does...and it's kinda crazy that this is what they've been working on all generation and for nearly five years, an entirely single player shooter where you can swap borderlands-ish type characters in and out instead of customization? a comic book style the division? i guess there weren't many places to go once they let you pretty much fly all over the city with super powers but the mission design isn't even a step-back because both SR and GTA always set the missions up as unique locations/events, this is more like the division's where it just sticks the stuff into the pre-existing open world and puts a different name above the baddie

hopefully they'll free weekend it and i can beat a third or half of it and go...enh maybe when it drops below $X i'll buy it to finish like the division

yeah that awful ign video was what inspired my post. game sounds like crackdown which tbh i hated bc it felt like the skeleton of what should be a better game. just sucks because it feels like they've been treading water for so long. saint's row had fantastic scenario design but the gameplay never quite felt like it kept up, and this looks like more of what they've been giving us for the last decade.

the kotaku article i read had a bunch of stuff in the comments regarding whether it had Saints Row's "dick jokes humor" and the writer explaining how it thankfully didn't and that this instead was much more clever like how they get in and out of cars

but despite that writer who was weirdly embarrassed about himself personally to be someone who was playing a game that had a dildo bat among its weapons...none of the Saints Row games did either, it had a couple throwaway lines of dialogue in some of the games, but most of the humor was how it was playing completely straight the absurd situations

the humor in this seems more like Borderlands 2 or something

Calling it now, you play as a barista/private eye who gains different powers from different coffee blends. Who was murdered by an old British tea company run by ghosts with an overly complex apocalyptic plan.

It's busted on Windows 10, have to install a "fan-made patch" iirc. Might be related to the DRM it uses.

A bunch of EA stuff around that era is like that. Medal of Honor Airborne gets stuck in that "Please install on a Windows newer than 98 or ME" loop.

Shit, perfect time Noah. I've been replaying Crysis 2 and 3.

Is anyone else kind of on this playing games scholarly? Like I know it sounds stupid, but I actually just replayed Halo 4 and 5 and not really for fun. Sure I was interested in playing 4 on the xbox one to see it in 60fps, but most of my curiosity was to see why the franchisee seems kind of dead and tired to me. Which then lead to Halo 5. I was kind of only playing them to create thoughts and ideas about their stance in the series.

Not intentionally. I've kind of lost my enthusiasm for new releases a couple years back, which lead to me mainly playing a lot of old games I've missed or found out about by trawling "hidden gem" lists. There's no hope I'll ever take a look at all of them (especially when I keep going back to staples like Path of Exile and Dirty Bomb), but occasionally something pops into my head apropos of nothing and I actually make time to play it, like Alien Resurrection for the PS.
