Wow, if that ain't a mood.I certainly feel this comic 30 something years later:

AlphaDream really should've held off on remaking the M+L games and just gone for broke on Switch. Really missed opportunity in hindsightSo I started playing Paper Mario 64 and... it is pretty good?? I just finished the first chapter but I really like the dialogue and the atmosphere. The battle system is solid, it sometimes requires a bit of strategy and it is quite engaging at the moment. The level design is mid tho, I much prefer what they did with TOK.
It makes me think that in the span of a few months I'm gonna play for the first time PM64, SMRPG and TTYD. Not bad.
Oh yeah. There was one year where I didn’t touch a single video game at all.Does anyone else go through phases between playing a lot of video games and then stopping?
On the other hand given the state of their studio they might have imploded before they managed to roll a single HD game outAlphaDream really should've held off on remaking the M+L games and just gone for broke on Switch
I feel like playing Remake early now would be best if you want to play Rebirth at launch. Should give you some space in between which I find welcome. If Yakuza 0 is your first Yakuza game and you aren’t aiming to play Rebirth at launch, trying new things is always fun.So I'll probably play both before the end of the year anyways but I'll ask Fami just to see what the consensus is: should I play FF7Remake or Yakuza 0? Both would be on PS5. Both I spent a few hours in and didn't beat them.
With FF I'd be restarting the game, with Yakuza I'd be continuing a save. Just curious what y'all think / what game you prefer.
No surprise here. Btw is it me of are recent Bandai cell shaded games starting to look samey, at least the environments. ToA, SandLand, Scarlet Nexus and now this have an odd shinyness to them.
Sounds a bit like my trip to the Dominican Republic when I first entered this forum.Pretty good!
Its super warm over here (Apart from a few grey days in Tokyo including a typhoone) it’s been sunny skies overall. But it’s quite the journey. Really happy I took the plunge.
sees how much ips died on microsoft yepKind of yuck.
“Career moment”. Yeah I know it would be, but MS keeping an eye on Nintendo is still disappointing. I don’t care for the brand and I hope that in my lifetime Nintendo stays independent, ha.
I just do not trust Microsoft.
You mean one of those MagicBox things?
Save often, especially if you increase the game speed. It wasn't too common but there were a few times when I left the the x2 game speed option on and the game would lock up on me. Other then that have fun, I did my playthrough right before the pandemic in '20 and had a great time.
Just look up a guide on how to get Yuffie and Vincent so you don't miss them. They're secret characters so it's possible to miss them.
My advice may be considered bad advice because it locks you out of the best summon, but I would avoid the time sink that is Chocobo breeding unless you really wanna stretch that playtime.
Thanks, everyone! I'm not going to follow a step-by-step walkthrough but I think I'll definitely look up guides for the ultimate weapons and secret characters.There’s missable ultimate weapons in this game. If you want to not miss them, I would say look them up or ask for info on them.
Some enemies have good equipment to steal. Early in game stuff.
Yuffie and Vincent are secret characters. I would look them up, they’re easy to miss. Especially Vincent.
There’s a good weapon to steal at the train graveyard lolThanks, everyone! I'm not going to follow a step-by-step walkthrough but I think I'll definitely look up guides for the ultimate weapons and secret characters.
Just got to the Train Graveyard and, having played Remake, it's quite crazy how... quick everything is lol. The pacing here is just constant and it's really cool to see the sheer amount of backgrounds and locations put into such a small chunk of time. Of course the game itself is old, and you can feel it (both in gameplay and in certain scenes...), but with the storytelling on display here I can see why the game's so beloved. Also think there is a certain charm to everything being done by these tiny chibi models with exaggerated acting, instead of today's template of hyper-realistic mo-capped characters.
