    I will have to check that out if it's compatible with the PS4 version, I'm liking some of the changes listed in the link. Have you tried it out yet?

    Kann ich verstehen, das ist nicht für jeden. Zum Glück tröstet mich die Klischeestory des Märchens das Kingdom Hearts ist und die Freude nach langer Wartezeit über die nun endgültig und total inkonsistenten Faktoren hinweg.

    Mann, Kingdom Hearts III hatte am Ende kurz vorm Endkampf so viele Plotholes/wonky narration.

    One idea I wanted to do for a game was a Sonic the Hedgehog style title with a heavy music theme. The flow and level design is Sonic, but the gameplay is closer to Amplitude/Frequency. You collect different color notes which eventually activate more instruments that play in the stage music. The goal being to have the full song playing by the time you reach the goal. The story is about a chronically late DJ who is always trying to get to a new show/concert his girlfriend is at. Each stage would be a different genre of music.

    The other is an RPG that's kind of like the film Millennium Actress but with video games instead. The main "game" the programmer is working on is a Dragon Quest knockoff but the battle system was unique. Basically I drop all pretense of HP/MP and stats, instead battles involve turns and your character has a limited amount of turns to defeat an opponent. You have Attack, Defend, Magic, and Items but the catch is that you may have to use some of the non-combative commands to win. So like you have two turns to beat a slime, but weapons and magic don't hurt it. So instead you'll learn in a town that slimes are weak to potions so you dissolve it instead with items. Some enemies will destroy themselves and try to take you with them so you'll need to defend, and other monsters may take a combination of all the abilities to win, the trick is figuring out what works, what order, and to use your turns wisely because if you run out of turns the monster just gets to eat you. The rest of the game is a bit more meta and fourth wall breaking, I may just mognet you the full story idea for it.

    I can understand the issues of working in a team and staying motivated. I'm working on a comic book idea with a friend. For most of the month, I've been obsessed with it and constantly writing background ideas and plotting out the main scenario while my artist friend has kind of been ho-hum about everything and easily distracted. Now I'm getting distracted with other stuff and she's suddenly got the fire to get to work. So it can be a process but I guess it's nice one of us is always burning a torch for the project.

    It's the nice thing about remaster/remakes is that it does bring in new fans. I remember the GBA ports of the SNES entries bringing in quite a few new faces on this forum, and I feel Dissidia did a great job making people look back on the older entries with a new sense of wonder.

    You're part of a dev team? Hot damn, wish I had the patience. I tried to learn computer programming in college when I finally went back to school but learned I didn't have the patience or aptitude for it so I had to change my major to some throw away one so I would stop accumulating student debt. I'm usually impressed with anyone who has the fortitude to stick to programming and software engineering. I'm better with coming up with designs than I am with implementing them.

    You've never asked actually.

    Funny enough, I've never actually played a Blizzard game before, except maybe Lost Vikings on the Genesis. I fell out of PC gaming in the late 90s just before Blizzard made a name for themselves with Diabalo, Warcraft, and Starcraft. FFXI sort of taught me I don't care for MMOs so I dodged WoW despite the game becoming the be all end all for all of my college friends. So I don't really have an opinion on them to be honest. I have debated with myself that I probably should go back and play Starcraft though since you can tell Blizzard took some ideas from Robotech but overall, I'm neutral on them and have no strong opinions because I really haven't played anything by them.

    How about you?

    Sounds a bit like Nier, you have to basically play the games three times each to get the true story on what's going on.

    It looks intriguing, one of those series that's on my back burner if I an ever find the time to get around to it.

    I'm familiar with it, like I know all the characters are technically based on fictional and historical figures like King Arthur for the Agrias looking girl and the one guy is Gilgamesh who did the whole magic aerial sword trick Noctis is known for. I remember hearing it started it's life as a Hentai Visual Novel before it's popularity spawned a SFW version which took off and became it's own franchise.

    No problem, not sure if it was an insightful though.

Interesting Routes: Aqua

by Karifean on 11-30-2017 at 10:21 PM
There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.

Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 01:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.

Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of cliché, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 09:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.
