@asbestos Always nice to see someone you haven't run into in ages.
We are humbled by your presence, you being such a close friends of the Allies and whatnot.
NieR is probably the closest.
First five hours or so were unbearable, but the music ended up being so good that I could just complete the game on autoplay, focusing on the soundtrack more than anything else.
I still have positive memories of the game, but yeah, gameplay-wise, it's a dud.
@mbun Nobody said anything about firing current employees, GF is in charge of the most lucrative intellectual property in the world, and yet works with a what is effectively a skeleton crew. It wouldn't be unreasonable for them to go through a hiring spree. There's plenty of talent in the wild from them to draw from, I don't think it's ridiculous to expect them to step up their game, upscale, and start churning out more for what they charge.
Implying that it'd be hard to find talented people passionate about Pokemon is also ludicrous, this shit is the most popular media franchise in the world and gaming is a booming market. GF is honestly being stubborn at this point.
Nintendo won by virtue of showing Smash alone.
Honestly, other than Springman and the already confirmed Inklings, I can barely foresee which newcomers we'll have this time around.
Hoping Konami lets Nintendo borrow Snake again, or even better, Simon Belmont.
As for Nintendo characters, K.Rool (Not sure if he's own by Rare though)? Captain Toad? Whatever Pokemon/FE character from the new generation of games? I'm looking forward to being surprised... hoping they'll do progressive reveals like they've been doing for the last two games. Brawl's announcements must've been some of the most hype I've ever had on the internet.
Really not a fan of guest characters, Geralt included.
Then again, they take considerably less development time than the canon characters do, so it's not that bad, but I've really never been a fan of crossover fighters in Soul Calibur, it doesn't fit the series well.
Paradox's DLC extravaganza is my guilty pleasure.
I'll buy any Day One, fully enjoy myself with it, and then semi-regret the fact that it's quite expensive for the amount of content it adds to their games, and then ready myself to do it all again once they start teasing the next expansion.
If that's what it takes for their games to be fully supported and to evolve over the years, that's a price I'm willing to pay.
Goddamn weebs weebing up the place with their gross-ass weebdom, what is wrong with you?
I'm a big fan of Breath of Fire (IV specifically), Catherine, and Lost Odyssey. Goddamn LO was so good it hurts.
A bit late to comment on it, but in my experience, first-time DMs have an easier time when they use premade modules instead of making up their own campaign from scratch. It doesn't require as much prep, and is usually better balanced than a beginner-made campaign would be.
Drinking beer and watching Westerns with friends seems to be the plan so far, might end up party-hopping, though I'm not really not in the mood for that these last couple of weeks.
Dunno what my costume would be should I need to find one.
