Monthly Recommendations Thread: What are you playing?
  • I'm looking forward to trying out FF9 next. Gonna take a bit of a break, as 45 hours of a FF game are enough for me for the next month or two. I've been going through all the mainline Zelda games as well, just reached Ocarina of Time. So I'll be continuing that until I feel a hankering to go back to FF.

  • Monthly Recommendations Thread: What are you playing?
  • Played and beat Final Fantasy 8 for the first time. Bit of an unpopular opinion, but I enjoyed everything about it more than FF7 (which i also played for the first time a few months ago). As a long time JRPG player, the mechanics were really interesting and fresh. I liked the majority of characters more as well. Maybe it's just the fact that I'm coming to these games 20+ years later and don't have the nostalgia for them - I'm not sure. I can definitely see why people loved FF7, though I'm not one of them.

    I'd love anybodies thoughts on this and their opinions on the two games!

  • Legend of Zelda
  • I'm currently going through every (mainline) Zelda game and replaying them. Took a bit of a break at Links Awakening, but I'd have to say my favourite 2D Zelda are Seasons/Ages, and my favourite 3D is Majora's Mask.

    Something about the worlds in those games that really draws me in.

  • Final Fantasy VII (PS1) - Aerith's funeral
  • I've only played FF7 for the first time recently. I'm in the process of playing FF8 right now and honestly, I care about the story and characters more in the latter. I don't know if it's an age thing, or having been spoiled for so long on FF7 plot beats but not FF8, or what. 8 seems to be striking more chords for me.

  • Which movies have you watched recently and felt like talking about?
  • Don't know, I've never watched Family Guy. It means it's trying to pretend it has deeper meanings but just comes off as shallow and pretentious. It's a film of "Anderson-isms" with nothing of substance to show.

  • Which movies have you watched recently and felt like talking about?
  • Interesting perspective. I thought it was his most obnoxious film to date. It was a movie that insisted upon itself and quite frankly bored and confused me. It was like no one said no to Anderson to reign him in at all.

  • Tekken 8 players divided as devs add “Tekken Shop” with microtransactions
  • "As long as it's only cosmetics" has moved the goalposts from where we used to be on the matter. I completely agree it's bullshit.

    The Tales Of series has been bullshit. Used to be fun collecting new costumes from hidden events and side quests. Now half of the interesting costumes are either DLC or different edition bonuses which you can later purchase as DLC.

  • What JRPG’s will you play on February. What games did you finish last month?
  • I just finished OG Final Fantasy 7 for the first time. It has definitely aged, but it was quite fun and I can see why it's held such high acclaim. The controls were frustrating sometimes and it obviously doesn't look the best now, but I enjoyed my time with it. It's actually the first FF I've been able to beat. I've tried a few of the previous pixel entries, couldn't get through them.

    I'll probably take a break this month and play Persona 3 Reload next month.
