  1. Anyone play Shining Resonance Refrain? how dialogue heavy is it? debating picking up a copy (Draconic Launch Edition), but would prefer it more combat heavy. It looks like a tales like game so thought id ask for some thoughts. Pros / Cons?

     

    thank you.

      It's pretty balanced imo

  2. Ok y'all-- need some iconic blade-wielding characters from games. Spears and axes count as blades. Thank you 😊

      @Beyondthegrave07, Nintendo would actually be great because I'm not familiar with it anymore.

      I'm kind of doing a farce data science article for the swordfighting website I'm writing for The working title is, "Do Swords Make You Look Cool?"

      Basically I'm looking at people's Instagram accounts and comparing Likes and Comments on photos where people have swords and do not have swords to see if pictures with swords get more. I've come to the realization that if I just look at the pages of sword practitioners, there's likely a bias because obviously the sword community would be interested in swords. I thought one good control group would be cosplayers because there's a good chance cosplayers have multiple costumes, some which have swords and some which do not, and that people looking at these Instagram accounts aren't following them specifically for sword content.

       

      Tldr; writing an article about how cool swords are and need to look up cosplayers

  3. What is the camera perspective from a game like Final Fantasy IX called where you're in third person but running through a fixed background with a fixed camera angle? I know it's third person of some kind, but I don't think the subgenre is called "Fixed Camera". When Googling that, it comes up with other types of games where you have an over-the-shoulder view but cannot use the joystick to pivot the camera around the character.

    I know when you're in the overworld it's a top-down third person with rotation, but I don't know what it's called when in dungeons/towns.

      @PooPooBlast, I thought isomeric view was something more like FF Tactics or Disgaea where you get a 3D perception from the environment 🤔

  4. At times such as the war we are seeing in Ukraine, I wish to say stay safe to everyone there. Also I know this site has trophy hunters from all over the globe, so I hope this message I speak of safety rings louder here.

    I hope during this time we can be kind to one another, even during our fierce debates and arguments. Already on my social media pages I'm seeing memes and finger-pointing and "told you so" and it disgusts me beyond words. Unsurprising, considering I've needed to find a "new crowd" for years now. But enough of that. I think I'm trying to say we don't need to add more misery in a world gone to hell.

    That all said, this is my "Home on the Internet" (albieit one with no small amount of troubles) and I hope we can keep it a good place for all. My message of working together on a previous status update (on my birthday) seems to ring even more true in my head now with what is happening.

    Keep safe everyone.

  5. Hello! A little, crying pink blobby friend told me it was your birthday today so I hope you enjoy your day!

    Love you buddy, hope you'll have a wonderful day!

    So you're telling me this Alchemyriddle is the result of a Parallel univere's Lulua failing to save Stia? And if you choose to sacrifice this universe's Stia, you get to see how it all came to be? Multiverse Lulua is confirmed. I gotta say this story is so intriguing, i have never really cared that much for stories in Atelier games nor were they this deep, definitely a worthy finale of the Arland saga, more serious too

      I feel like the Atelier games have become more deep with their plots. However, I kind of miss the simplicity of Rorona... just a girl trying to save her shop.

  9. Platinum #219: Void Terrarium

     

    Got this game from my #1 bestie @eigen-space and played it alongside her, so thanks for both once more my friend!

     

    A pretty interesting roguelike dungeon-crawler kind of game. It has some other gimmicks as well, but it's probably better to not spoil them.

     

    It can get rough a few times, the difficulty has some spikes. But with an aggressive approach, thorough exploration of dungeons and crafting for permanent stat upgrades, it was always a neat experience for us. The RNG effects can be worked down by taking time and leveling up.

     

    Recommending it is difficult, because everything about it is so niche. Look it up, that gives you way more information than I could provide. All I'll say is: We liked it!

  10. Any roguelikes come out on PS4/5 lately? Haven't played one in a while.

  13. If things go well, then tonight i will finish the final boss in Tales of Arise. I saved before it (not sure what it is either. no spoilers), and after that ill post a short-mid sized review of my experience with the game, and what i have done up to story completion. 

     

    Also just realized i have a 20% XP boost i didnt have on for a long time.... plus first thing post game is goin after the 80% exp boost en route to my last 3 artifacts. 

    So yeah, review should be up (as a status) when i beat the final boss.

  14. Almost forgot how cringey Final Fantasy X-2 can be, even as a kid I hated the extreme tonal shift from the original game. But now that I'm older and a little less edge-lordy, I can appreciate a lot about it as well. Seems like a long-ass platinum though... damn

  15. Is anyone else having issues with games on their PS5 suddenly crashing? I know it's not the disc because I had no issues with it on my PS4.

  16. Hi guys, I'm asking a question that's probably been published on forums 1000x but how do you guys manage a balance between trophy hunting and your personal life? I'm not asking how do you find time but simply how do you create that balance so it's not an irregularity. My issue is I've been wanting to get back to stuff I love, trophy hunting is part of it but it's not meant to be huge on my priority list but I'm prioritizing it massively. I see myself spending an entire Sunday on a game just to grind it so I can get a platinum earlier because I'm inpatient, now this is a problem because I then neglect all my other hobbies to priortise trophy hunting. Now I'm at a weird place with trophy hunting where I have all these huge targets, I randomly decided in my head to shoot myself a target to plat GTA IV AND V, these are mammoth goals in itself but I'm pressured by doing it E.G Im worried servers will close for GTA IV anytime. I just feel like I'm pressuring myself like it's a second job now... it's becoming a weird constant obsession. What's your advice?

      @IntroPhenom, Keto focuses on getting most of your calories from fat (about 70% of your calories). Carbs make up about 5-10%, with the rest being protein. Atkins has a larger share of protein. If you have too much protein in your diet, your body actually converts excess protein into carbs. You want to minimize carbs because that's what the body uses as a fuel source first.

      That's so interesting! Do you have an Instagram with your photos?

      And I totally understand about not staying healthy. I lived in the middle of nowhere for several years (literally 45 minutes to get to the closest grocery store) so the only thing I did was play video games. Gained weight, then had a baby so more weight and hormone stuff. I'm finally getting back to a good weight because keto is magic.

      I recently started swordfighting again. It feels like having a set time for the classes helps me because I have specific times cut out for this activity. If I don't go to classes, I don't get to do this activity. So maybe creating a schedule and sticking to it might help?

      I also completely stepped away for gaming for about half a year when I started grad school. Granted, grad school isn't a hobby, but it allowed me to get into a groove of doing something other than gaming and allowed me the opportunity to slowly re-introduce gaming. So maybe taking a full break for a month might help?

    Now I need to spend more time working through TitS.

  22. [Facebook Prison Blues] Boy, I tell you what, ain't nobody knows the trouble I've seen... as the inevitable end result of leaving executive decisions that require social intelligence and abstract thought to zeroes and ones, I have been sent to Facebook Prison for some four and twenty hours for having an admittedly obscure reference misconstrued as "bullying." It's like living in a particularly dumb episode of Black Mirror. Since I am one of the, what, four people left in the world who still uses FB, am I the victim of splash damage from some meticulous and deliberate plan to finally kill it off? What a glorious future of technocratic wonderment we are headed in for...

     

    Anyway, it's not all that bad, really. I got lucky with my cell mate, as he's just your average mildly caustic yet still ultimately kindhearted frameup victim, the kind of person I thought only existed in movies, gratuitously mendacious status updates, or other such prison-based ephemera. Quickly established dominance and a general aura of dontfuckwithability by throwing a basket of cooking oil at a guy who made disparaging comments directed at my mask. Boy, he ain't pretty no more... but then, he never was. The eye that can behold this kind of beauty does not exist, and if it does, you'd best stay far away from the one in whose socket it is socketed. 

     

    Whelp, it's just about time for lights out, which is just as well, as tomorrow is the weekly lacrosse game in the yard. The main prize is a mountainous pile of cigarettes that I've been fairly well informed equals maybe a tenth of what Tom Waits consumes in a day... it's no less valuable a commodity than in any other prison, so I aim to win and buy me, like, a Snuggie or something. Third prize is a Joan Rivers equivalent, so that ain't nothing to sneeze at. Anyways, all y'all out there enjoy your freedom, socalled, while I luxuriate in a better standard of living than deregulated capitalobbyist monopolies are liable to reward you with, all on the government's dime. Keep on paying them taxes, folks... toodles!

  23. Why the word "Remastered" was supressed from ps4 titles like Gravity Rush, Grim Fandango, God of War 3, Dark Souls, Uncharteds and so on? I didn't like this change because in most cases it is the official game/release name. Was it done trying to fix or put certain series in the correct order when displaying lists alphabetically? Uncharted series got even more messed up. Is there a forum or place where I get notified whenever this little weird changes happens on psnp? 😡
