Re: Let's play through our backlogs

I beat Fortune Summoners. It's a cute action JRPG that was more difficult than it's appearance would let on. I quite enjoyed it, although I had trouble when I was forced to play as one of the spell casters. In far too many side-scrolling platformers, I'm used to getting up close and personal with en...

Re: LRRcast - Spoilers

I was trying to think of the oldest, well known, pop-culture, spoiler I know, and the best I could think of was Soylent Green. Spoilers are a really tricky thing, because for some pieces of media, simply knowing there is a spoiler can be a spoiler in and of itself. There's one thing in particular I'...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

Interesting. When I played that game, I liked it. I enjoyed it enough to play it all the way through, it's just disappointing because it could have been so much better. Let's take one of the things I was most disappointed by, the monster death sequences, and look at how it could be better. First, I...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

Today, I was in the mood for a platformer, so I tried, and beat Hell Yeah. It wasn't particularly good. The game tries way too hard to be edgy cartoony, and it mostly falls flat. The dialogue, while self-aware, was pretty forgettable, and the gameplay didn't really do much to reinforce it. They trie...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

Chantelise is done and dusted. It's not too long, pretty cute, and, like I said before, the localization is really good. Chantelise actually makes game 21 from my backlog, so I can start buying games again. That said, I've more or less enjoyed playing all these games I already own, so I'm going to i...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

Now I'm debating Skies of Arcadia (Legends) or a 2nd playthrough of Dark Souls. I never finished Skies of Arcadia so it'd be nice to do so, but it has NOT aged well either. Dark Souls I want to play again because 1) it's a great game (duh) and 2) it has cheese mints now. Trouble is, I don't think I...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

Two weeks later, and too many deaths later, I'm done La Mulana. I enjoyed parts of it, but damn if it doesn't feature some unfriendly level design. I can't fathom playing through this without a reference of some kind. There are too many obscure things that are vaguely hinted at on tablets, and a lot...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

I started playing La Mulana. I'm enjoying it so far, but it's frustrating. The jumping works almost like in the old Castlevania games or Ghosts and Goblins; you can barely change direction in midair, and if you walk off the edge, you just drop straight down. While exploring, there are a ton of table...

Re: LRRcast - Writing Process

You talking about the AB structure of comedy reminded me of a video where it was described very succinctly as " Meanwhile, back at the ranch " Kathleen's comment about Archer reminded me how much I enjoy having a matching line to flip between plot lines. It can't be easy to write, but it d...

Is that this one? It hadn't hit kickstarter when this was filmed.

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

I like that idea of streaming your backlog. Is there a thread here to announce our streams? If not, I might announce plans to stream here on occasion. I decided to play Fez, and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the platforming/perspective puzzles quite a bit. At the start, I had trouble remembering where I w...

Let's play through our backlogs

I can't be the only person who's bought one, or a dozen, too many bundles and has a ton of games just sitting around, gathering electronic dust. A while back, I decided I would give 20 games a shot before I would let myself buy any new games. Right now, I've gone through 17, and have found some good...

Re: LRRcast - The Kathleen Trivia Challenge Part 3

My only note is that the way some questions are phrased, in this episode I can only recall the Ebola question fitting this, there could be multiple answers that are technically correct. Hypothetically, if the answer was 100,000 instead, all three answers are correct as 100,000 is more than 10,000, ...

Re: Finale! (SPOILERS ASSUREDLY WITHIN)

I predicted two of the final three, but not the winner. Bad Detectives was one of the two that I'd like to play myself. Aguirre was the other one, but I feel like I'd be disappointed by it. I don't know what games other people are interested in, but the Judges' comment about how hard it is to find g...

Re: LRRcast - Winter Anime Recap

I only actually watched two shows from the winter season, one of which I would call good: Shirobako. Shirobako is a fantastic show. The story follows an animation studio and the trials and tribulations of production, but it's about young professionals and entering the workforce. As someone who just ...

Re: LRRcast - Resolutions Part 1

I mentioned to Graham on twitter, but my New Year's resolution is to not use discriminatory insults, and to call out people who do use them. It's my way of bettering the world, given what happened last year.
