        Agreed. Tedious equals I just want to be done. Or play something else

        I never said tedious.

        I understood "pain" to mean "difficult" and without a challenging ending the player wouldn't feel accomplished or satisfied.

        @Golden Unicorn Gaming By pain I mean having to walk and walk and walk and kill endlessly respawing enemies just to activate things to get farther into the dungeon until at last I can kick the boss's ass.

      R.I.P. Opportunity. It was just a robot, but it also was humanity's vanguard and a bit of us died over there too.

      Half-way into Trails in the Sky 3, but it feels more like a fangame than a sequel. Not bad, but different.

        Of course! Getting a smaller group to successfully do something is so much easier, especially if they're all skilled and working towards the same goal. You're comparing apples and oranges.

      Challenge of the day: spriting a walking-while-crouched girl when you can't see her legs/feet because of a long dress. This looks so bad...

        @cabfe Maybe just make the dress a little tighter and let it give way to physics the first time she tries to crouch in it and become a split dress. Bonus points if the sneak mission ends with her stealing a horse and galloping off to freedom. :p Or maybe have her knock the first guard she sees over the head and steal his pants and tunic, either way works. :D

        It's just a short move (3 tiles) with already a lot of custom things happening. It probably won't bother anyone besides me :)
        That's the thing when you envision your game, and then have to deal with the engine or your own limits.

      Remember to drink even when you're not thirsty. It'll prevent heatstroke and you'll also feel better. Especially before going to sleep.

      50 hours to reach the last boss. Another 50 hours and still trying to beat him... dayum you, Square.

        I think some of the problem too is the bosses in FF games are meant to be defeated by cheap tricks. FF7 one cast of Knights of the Round = win, FF8 spam Aura on Squall and limit break it to death, FFX grind in the battle arena against Jumbo Cactur with AP set to be based on damage taken = 20 - 70 sphere grid levels per battle, and so on.

        Basically, they forgot to balance the boss against those who don't find those tricks, and in the end we get the nightmare we get.

        Yeah, just cheap exploits which almost break the game. I remember there was more stuff in FF7, like a Mime materia or something, which allows you to copy the last attack you did, so you could get another cast of Knights of the Round if the first one didn't kill the boss. :p

      Did the beta testers never reported those non-skippable long cutscenes before a hard fight in FF10? Was skip or autosave too much to ask?

        Also FFX has a pretty awesome combat IMHO. I love that you can finally swap party members mid-battle to use whoever is best against the enemies you're facing.

        @Matseb2611 I think it was that generation of RPG's in general. Around the same time there was Tales of the Abyss (another classic), but I despised every character in the party by the midway point.

        Which is normally dependent upon your ability to pay them extravagant sums of cash, not guilt or innocence. To poor to afford anything but a public defender (which defendants still have to pay for themselves by the way, at least here) and the most likely outcome is your council simply advises you to plead guilty and accept whatever the judge says, as you are 1 of 30 or so new clients they have to represent that day.

      Nier Automata has the best soundtrack I've heard in years. Whenever I listen to it, it makes me want to replay the game.
