Man, how awesome would it be to track down these guys and do a huge Team Tournament for old time's sake? Plus with the new talent around here to mix things up.

This was linked in the above chat log.

Venter, any more things like this sitting around? I'm just drowning in nostalgia.

Bravely Second
April 22, 2016

Okay, so maybe I was a little too praiseworthy of the first game. I still loved it, despite some obvious problems with pacing and story. But this second game... terrible story, unbearable characters, cringe-worthy dialogue, the exact same battle system from the first game, with one or two minor additions. Most of the new jobs are weird and not very useful.

If the first game went back to the roots of Final Fantasy and proved that a game of this style could still be fun in a world where Square-Enix mostly cares about Final Fantasy XIII moviegames, Bravely Second misses the point.

Year in Summary 2015
December 31, 2015

Just before last Christmas, I bought myself a PS4.

Most of the year was Witcher 3, and some other games that weren't as good as Witcher 3. I was playing Dragon Age: Inquisition earlier in the year, and that was good, but Witcher 3 completely blew it out of the water. I played about an hour of the new Batman game, but it wasn't Witcher 3, so I haven't been back to it yet. The same also happened to Final Fantasy Type 0 HD (which really looks ugly for a PS4 game and has that narrow sort of shoebox feel that Crisis Core and other PSP RPGs had - streaming this to the Vita made it a lot more bearable).

I don't know if I'll finish Witcher 3 before Fallout 4 comes out.
October 30, 2015

I work full time now, and I usually prefer more passive activities in the evenings, such as watching TV shows. As a result, I don't play games very much. I tend to get about 4 hours or so on a Saturday or Sunday, and so every weekend, for what feels like most of this year, I've been slowly but surely plugging along with Witcher 3 - which is still an excellent game. I get the sense that things might be drawing to a conclusion soon, but I have no idea.

Back when I was unemployed, I would've played this game all day every day until I finished it (like the month and a bit I lost to Skyrim, like the summer I lost to Fallout 3)...

Dragon Age: Inquisition (PS4)

The Inquisition marches on with a mixture of random exploring/side quests, getting my ass kicked for going into areas where the enemy level jumps absurdly, and then going back to the story missions. I've been playing this every other weekend since New Year and I'm still not done, but I am still enjoying it.

Ask me about Grim Fandango
February 01, 2015

Iím just going to say it. Grim Fandango is one of the best point and click adventure games ever made. This was true in 1998 when it first released and was mostly ignored because the genre was dying. This is even more true in 2015 when adventure games are back with a vengeance thanks to the many episodic adventure series by TellTale, and the many indie titles that try to capture that 90ís adventure feel.

Game of Thrones - Episode 1 - Iron from Ice (PS4)

I've been enjoying TellTale's episodic adventures since their humble Sam & Max days (and wow have they come a long way since then!). But I know that their promise of monthly releases does tend to become "every other month" and they love ending each episode on a cliffhanger. As you do. I remember playing the waiting game for Tales of Monkey Island. The wait between Episode 4 and 5 was agonising.
