I plugged in and played on my ZX Spectrum last week, so I've only has it set up a day or few. I completed Mindshadow, a graphical text adventure today, but ill hopefully be polishing off a few more.
Cute as buttons
It's been about a decade since I beat it last, but I'm still only mildly fond of the game, and definitely don't believe it's the masterpiece some people herald it to be. To be fair though, I truly hated it when I first bought it at release. Its wonderful cover art and Squaresoft logo admittedly drew me in, but it didn't (and still doesn't to be honest) hold up with the other games they threw out on the PS1. It wasn't until about 6 years later that I went back in and appreciated it a lot more.
There's a lot praise to give to Vagrant Story, but it is its flaws that stand out most to me, worst of all being the ridiculously limited inventory space, which is literally in conflict and fights against other parts of the game's design. The pressure to consistently alter your gear and weapons to suit each individual situation/enemy is also a chore, something they could have alleviated with a more intuitive quick-swap system, but didn't. Then there's the core RPG system, which admittedly isn't very complex, but is clearly unnecessarily convoluted. The story is alright, but certainly doesn't reach the epic heights I was used to from your typical Square RPG. It also doesn't seem complete or fleshed out as much as it should be, something that was actually confirmed by Matsuno, with about half of the story being cut apparently. A final, and personal issue though is that damn archaic dialect, it's annoying to read and as far as I'm concerned, completely unnecessary; no-one who was going to play this game has ever talked like that, and it's not like the game is going for any kind of historical accuracy here.
A lot of negativity, I know, but at the end of the day, it's actually still a really good game, and I highly recommend it if people passed it by back in the day.
My Yakuza 6 demo hasn't been an issue to be honest. It's not the demo with the full game, but it still works, despite the fact that the UK version was also taken down from PSN.
Am I the only one who was deeply underwhelmed (as someone who loves 1&2) of the No More Heroes 3 gameplay?
What can you honestly tell from that?
