  1. Wow no @YangustheLegendaryBanditfor this one? He can go on and on about how much he loves IX!
  2. It’s a “the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia owns a company that intends to buy a majority stake in SNK” thing.

    My autocorrect still produced an accurate sentence.
  4. Better buy all the SNK games you can before a Saudi prince owns the company!

    If they do remake it, they better do a thorough job of fixing numerous problems with catching certain Pokémon. It’s the Pokémon game I’ve played the longest (200+ hours I believe) and it is by far the most overly complicated game to complete the Pokédex. While Gen 3 asks a lot of you by requiring numerous games (and a GameCube and spinoff Pokémon games!), Gen 4 asks a lot of you for certain Pokémon that required me going back into the archives and harvesting all my Emerald and Sapphire Pokémon out of their respective games since it would be easier than trying to catch them. I also filled in ma

    Vita RPGs...?

    I am currently playing through the Code: Realize series of visual novels. But instead of going through each route one game at a time, I think it would be more fun to play through each character’s route through all three games.

    It looks like the visuals take more from Pokémon Let’s Go than Sword and Shield. I’m excited to play it. Maybe I’ll revisit the original in March.
  8. https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/4/22213276/persona-soundtracks-spotify Gonna be spending a lot of time updating and making playlists. There’s a lot of good stuff on here, including the live albums and Dancing All Night.
  9. Here’s a game we didn’t talk about during the podcast (and for good reason): Pokemon: Battle Revolution, the Wii game that’s basically useless unless you also had Diamond or Pearl to connect to it. It features no story and you just go from tournament to tournament with various gimmicks to mix it up. But they’re kinda long, it can take you about 30-40 minutes each, and they’re not very interesting. The only thing of note is that your Pokémon come from Diamond and Pearl. You import your boxes over and they are copied as-is to the Battle Revolution. If you don’t have one of those games, you’re st

    Gaming Goals 2021

    I theorized that the prequel game, Yakuza 0, had a lot of word-of-mouth praise and a ton of memes associated with it (sort of like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure). I know almost nothing about the actual story, but I know all about the dominatrix side quest. Of course, how did we even manage to get 0, seeing as the franchise was basically dead in the US. We got 5 digital-only on PS3 and I’ve heard it said that doing that was considered a risky gamble. Before that, I’d only ever heard the series mentioned in articles about how we’re unlikely to get Yakuza 5 and watching parts of the Two Best Frie

    Gaming Goals 2021

    Jeez I knew Yakuza was becoming mainstream but it feels like everyone’s playing it now.
  12. Nah, man there was some really dated stuff in here that I thought improved the movie overall, but might not work for a modern, non-comic book reading audience. Superman’s powers have been so normalized over the decades, whereas the ridiculous action stuff Wonder Woman does with her lasso is still new to people. That is sorta a problem I had with the movie. It is really campy in a way we probably haven’t seen in some time, but it’s all mixed in with serious geo-political stuff and interpersonal drama. Character-wise, Cheetah would have benefitted more from being the main antagonist, b
  13. There’s a saying: “nobody hates Star Wars more than Star Wars fans.” But anyway, Wonder Woman 1984 was very long and people had issues with the villains, among other things. Personally, comics are inherently silly so I’m able to watch a movie I know stars a woman that flies an invisible jet and uses a lasso to fight a woman that turns into a Cheetah and understand that I will get a silly movie. I did have a couple issues with some of the time management that went on with this movie. There were a lot of balls to juggle and yet somehow not all of them were handled smoothly despite
  14. It was a year ago to the day that @Plattym3 posted last year’s topic and I really liked it so I thought I would keep it going! Got anything you’d like to do this year? First I’d like to say that 2020 was a banner year for me, in terms of finding time to play games. Of course, that time was basically thrust upon me by the pandemic, which also resulted in fewer games coming out that I would want to buy. I also trimmed a lot of fat in my collection just by selling off games I don’t think I’ll ever play. I think it ended up to be around 50? Maybe a little more? For 2021, I would lik
  15. I’m apparently the only person I know that liked Wonder Woman 1984.

    Switch RPGs...?

    I got Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen for Christmas. I’m also expecting the Grandia HD Collection some time tomorrow. Very hyped to play some long RPGs in the new year.
  17. Just a heads up, I don’t know if your PC could handle it, but Persona 4 Golden is on Steam now.
  18. Playing through Miles Morales: Spider-Man twice, the second time on the highest difficulty (and earning the Platinum btw), prepared me to return to the OG Spider-Man PS4 game. After reaching the credits, I started a NG+ on, you guessed it, the highest difficulty setting.
  19. There are quite a few cheap, bad live action Japanese movies for manga, but only a few developed in the West. The only recent ones are the universally disliked Death Note and Ghost in the Shell movies. Alita: Battle Angel happened but I don’t know if it even made back its money (though it was quite good). Netflix is developing shows for Cowboy Bebop and One Piece, and I think Your Name is happening from a different distributor, but otherwise there aren’t many. The real question is, why are there so many stage plays? Personas 3-5, Blue Exorcist, Beastars, act-age (before being cancelled be
  20. I actually don’t know if I agree with that. The book just glazes over battles that are happening. There’s a part near the end where the narration just says, “and this person was fighting this person, and this person was fighting this person, and Hagrid threw this guy.” The worst to me was when they just casually mention that McGonagall, Slughorn, and Shacklebolt are dueling Voldemort like it’s just any other fight. I was so thrown by that considering how big a moment that is for Slughorn’s character, who spent a lot of the last book being afraid of Voldemort and basically using his teaching jo
  21. I mentioned briefly in the reading topic, but I started on Halloween and binged through the whole series without stopping to read anything else and would usually start the next book immediately after finishing the last one. I have a weird history with the series. I watched the first movie, and then I read random books and stopped at random points but still kept up by watching the movies. The only confusing gap was when I saw, I think, the fourth movie and then read the sixth book. Basically, I read most of one, a little of three, all of six, and about half of seven. I figured it was high
  22. Thanks! Gonna spend my birthday finishing Harry Potter.
  23. I poked my head into my local GameStop on Black Friday and it was totally and completely dead. No one but me and two employees. I was stunned to see how few used games were in the store. A used and new game store didn’t have used games. For the last year or two I had been using GameStop’s website to see if they had any used copies of harder to find Wii and Vita games at nearby stores and noticed all of a sudden so many games were no longer at stores and were even unavailable to order online. I figured, with all this in mind, that GameStop wouldn’t make it to 2022. Then I get an email sayi
  24. Beat Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Now I’m seeing if I can complete it in NG+ on Ultimate difficulty. Honestly, aside from some of the combat, stealth, and traversal challenges, it’s very doable. I think at the bare minimum I’ll be able to get the Platinum trophy.
