    Yuhuuuu! I almost feared that you podfaded *fillingthemp3player*

  • I already got the podcast off of the GAF thread and listened to it straight through.

    Too bad Shidoshi isn’t too fond of Solatorobo. It’s such a charming little title… however, I totally agree with him about simplistic PSP graphics being somehow quaint and fun even though they are somewhat outdated these days. Games like Hexyz Force (in terms of its graphics) are the most emblematic of this for me.

    Good stuff, as usual.

    First time listener here, I want to say your podcast is amazing and is now my favorite, I love every bit of it. Thank you very much.


    FFX is about as good as Patrick Swayze’s Ghost with characters about as interesting and just as bad soundtrack.

    FF13’s problem is that they threw trash mobs at you constantly, making progress slow and eventually making battles boring. The places where the battle system came alive was when you played difficult bosses, as you guys mentioned. However you had to wade through hours and hours to get to it and by then you just want to throw the game into the bin because it offered nothing else.

    Square Enix then listened to the bitching about the linear level system and bosses casting doom on you. In a game design point of view, casting doom on you is perfectly fine because it prevents you from playing like a retard; the linear level up system prevents overleveling and forces you to progress through the game.

    The problem with listening to your fans is they know NOTHING about game design. FF13-2 is now far too easy and “fixes” the gameplay mechanics for those babies who didn’t like bosses casting doom on you and the inability to grind. A lot of other game mechanics, like the Mog Clock, just don’t work either. Mechanically its actually a worse game.

    Its as if Japanese RPG makers don’t even play their own games – From Software is the only one I can think of who introduced/removed the right mechanics in their Souls series of games. I mean why does Tales of Xillia have both TP and CC when Jude can basically refill his whole TP with a few punches?

    So I’m not surprised Edge can justify giving the game another 5. Its not a better game in any way. Some parts are better, a lot of new mechanics are awful, a lot of old mechanics that worked were thrown out the window, and the characters are still porcelain dolls.

  • *blinks* What? Impossible!

  • Monsieur Eek!

    Nick, don’t you work at Platinum Games? I could swear I saw you on a video on their blog.
