  1. What's your favorite thing from Taco Bell?

    I usually just get cheesy potato burritos.
  2. Final Fantasy

    IX is awesome. Might be my favorite one.
  3. Final Fantasy

    Yeah, the main party in this game is certainly different from typical Japanese RPG stuff, but I'm not sure it's in a good way. Looks like the main character hanging out with his bros. I know way back closer to when the game was first announced the princess and some female knight that worked for her were supposed to be in the party, but I haven't seen anything about those two in ages.
  4. Final Fantasy

    I'm cautiously optimistic for XV. Square Enix insists on trying to reinvent the wheel for every new entry in the series these days. They did it to a much smaller extent with older entries in the series (no two games during the "glory days" of the series played the same way, but they were still similar in many regards), but they really ramped up that mentality with XII, XIII, and now XV, to very mixed results. XV has looked pretty good in the trailers, at least. One thing I don't like is that the world just looks so... empty in the trailers. So many large, barren expanses of land in the gameplay trailers. Doesn't exactly make me eager to explore it. I think I may be looking forward to that World of Final Fantasy game more, tbh.
  5. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    I bought Xenoblade Chronicles X. Really cool game. Still near the beginning, but this world is just massive.
  6. Major League Baseball Thread - 201/2016 Offseason

    Are you talking about 2011? Hamels allowed 0 runs in 6 innings against the Cardinals in that series.
  7. Metal Gear Sold V

    Meh, Metal Gear Solid 4 decided to tell you everything through cutscenes and it was clearly way too much. I like the way the cassette tapes function (they're the same in Peace Walker, too). I'm pretty let down in some ways with this game. The side ops get a bit stale. Not really interested in doing so many heavy infantry or highly skilled soldier side ops. The only side op line I feel compelled to complete is the wandering soldier one. The areas in this game aren't particularly memorable outside of a few cool locations. The lack of boss fights is very disappointing since I think boss fights have always been one of Metal Gear's strong suits. And of course the story fizzling out the way it does is disappointing. Like others have said, I think this is pretty clearly an unfinished game. I'm not done Act 2 yet but I'm pretty sure I get the gist of how it goes down. It's still a damn fun game and the gameplay itself is fantastic, but it has a lot of flaws, and unfortunately a lot of those flaws are new to the series.
  8. Super Mario Maker

    I've seen some extremely cool levels online. I'll probably get it pretty soon.

  11. Metal Gear Sold V

    The game's so good
  12. Metal Gear Sold V

    As someone who's only just now getting into the series, 4 was probably my second-favorite. 3 seems far and away the best in the series. 1 and 2 just have somewhat archaic control schemes to really get into them in 2015. I enjoyed 2 but not as much as I would have with actual camera controls and the such (which is a shame since it came out late enough that it really should have been better about those things and they were ultimately a bad design decision on Kojima's part). 4 definitely had its share of problems, though. While I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the boss fights and how intense they felt, I didn't think any of them were actually particularly fun. The Beauty & the Beast unit was also the weakest unit by far in the series and was ultimately just a callback to all of the previous ones with no actual fleshing out of their own. And ultimately there were just so many references to previous games in the series that it felt unintentionally corny at many moments.
  13. Metal Gear Sold V

    I've been playing through the whole series for the first time over the past two weeks in preparation. Just beat Metal Gear Solid 4 last night. Been quite a ride. Gonna start Peace Walker today.
  14. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    Yeah they've certainly made leveling up way easier than it used to be. Too easy, probably. I think in one of the more recent games (either White or X), I would routinely have all of my Pokemon leveled up to the same point as the next gym leader's highest leveled Pokemon, which makes the game way too easy obviously. They also made the Exp Share way too strong and everyone gets full exp in your party. I guess it's an okay option for people who want it, but if you're looking for even some kind of slight challenge then it's not worth using. The games have always been easy, but I can sleepwalk through these new ones.
  15. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    The pacing in the recent games has been really weird. You can go like 7 hours and only have two badges, but then the next four or five badges all come within the next like 2 hours.
