    GameStop is entering selloff talks

    A company I won't be sad to see go away. The only times I'd visit a Gamestop is due to convenience or wanting a niche game I wouldn't find anywhere else. It's become worse in recent years with it becoming a funko-pop repository. As for the whole Physical & Digital conversation, going full-digital would be nice if prices would compete with physical prices. Having a PS4 now, almost all the games I want are less than $30 physically, while still sell full-price digitally or on sale with 25% off.

    Haven't been to Seattle in a long while. I may have to convince my girlfriend to go with me on a weekend when it's not miserably hot outside.

    I made the switch to Linux Mint a year and haven't looked back. I only use Windows for work or when I need to print something. I stopped gaming on my PC years beforehand, so giving that up wasn't a problem. It takes some troubleshooting to get everything working, but it's definitely worth it. With troubleshooting Linux, it atleast feels like you're learning something, rather than trying to work around the design of Windows (only for them to undo your solutions with the next update.)
  4. Of all the Tales games I've played, none of them have been game-stopping difficult. That includes the Basilisks that can turn your entire party to stone with one shot in Phantasia.
  5. Count me in for PS4. I just finished Tales of Xillia this past weekend, and I'm looking to start Berseria soon. I took a break from the series for years outside of Tales of the Abyss on 3DS. It's nice to catch up on the series now.

    I might get Dark Souls remastered on the cheap, probably a year from now. Lately I've been playing Tales of Xillia, and honestly, I've never played a game that felt so incomplete. The game starts off pretty strong, but half way it falls to pieces. As if the development team was told they have 7 months of development instead of 12. Atleast the game is fun with its battle system. I'm hoping Berseria will be a better experience. I keep forgetting it's June already. My mind keeps thinking that Summer break is around the corner, but I graduated a year ago.

    I thought about getting a 360 just to play through Tales of Vesperia, but the thing is the size of a fridge.

    I love customization in my RPGs. In the best case, an RPG can have loads of customization, and still a decent playtime (20-40 hours.) Most Fire Emblem games fit into this category. I play FE Awakening on an annual basis, and I find it satisfying in seeing my results with each playthrough. RNG is a terrible factor, and it killed my enjoyment of Xenoblade Chronicles. Many of the sidequests are dependent on finding random drops on the field or from enemies. For the player, this becomes an exercise in gathering information from a Wiki, and hoping that the RNG is in your favor. Games featuring a slow start for the first few hours bore me. This can be applied to most Final Fantasy games, where your first few hours are spent being introduced to characters and the world, but it's hours until you get to the meat of the game. Another feature that can ruin my interest is bad checkpoints. This stopped me from getting far in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Levels are long, and checkpoints are minutes apart. It can be discouraging to make a mistake that's going to cost you several minutes of your time.

    Lost Mangroves - N4A Chat Thread, May 2018

    I kind of forgot that I find Kingdom Hearts II to be really boring until just recently. Atleast initially I thought it was because I found the game too easy, but now playing it on Critical, the game is still kind of a drag. The game's pacing is a little too consistent, and very little gets in the way of changing that. Even though everyone hates the platforming, gummi-ship segments, and the basic puzzle solving of the first game, it atleast tried to add some variety to the gameplay and pacing. Also, nothing bothers me more in a game than when a textbox or scrolling text needs to tell me the objective. Worse is when they reveal the solution in said text. It kind of defeats the purpose of presenting the challenge, and it doesn't encourage any creativity in solving it.

    Sometimes I think I want to get Ultra Sun. I know it's the same game I bought in 2016, but it is new and shiny. But I'm also constrained on times these days. Even a 40-hour game can take me months now. I'm leaving it up to see if we get anything about Pokemon at E3 next month.

    CONFIRMED Pokemon Switch coming soon

    I'm thinking these will be a pseudo-spinoff games for Switch. A 'Let's Go!' series that plays like the RPG mainline games, but is more streamlined with an emphasis on the Pokemon Go mobile game. A series to bridge the gap between the Go audience into the mainline games. It'd be kind of awkward if these are mainline games. A sequel/distant revisit of Kanto would be nice as follow-up games to your normal new generation games.
  12. I have it for 3DS. I want to go back and play it more, now that I just finished Fire Emblem Warriors. FEW had some nice additions like the automatic drop collecting, and being able to optimize all your characters equipment with a single menu option. But HW has the attention to detail and care that FEW obviously lacks.

    CONFIRMED Pokemon Switch coming soon

    Wishful thinking on ResetEra's behalf. I'd be kind of annoyed if the new games have anything to do with Kanto. Anyone who keeps up with the games knows how much GF likes to add Kanto fanservice in each game. And anyone who doesn't keep up keeps crying for GF to just remake Red & Blue with the original 151 Pokemon.
