  • Steam summer sale began and my wishlist is gone. After fiddling around, it looks like a server issue since stuff simply isn't loading up. Meanwhile, I decided to try Lunar Silver Star Story next in my run through of JRPG classics. It apparently uses anime cutscenes with VA so I may need to get new earphones sooner than later.

    Yeah first hour or two of the sale Steam is derp. Best to do something else until the madness dies down.
    I finally completed DQ III and it's now in epilogue bonus dungeon mode; now I've officially completed the main stories for the Erdrick Trilogy. Much appreciation for how much care went into the NPC dialogues throughout the games. I think I'll tackle FF III next.

    Congrats! You should give the Zenithian Trilogy a try too. The trilogy isn't as well connected as the Erdrick Trilogy but they're still great games.

    Oh is this the new remake that was announced a couple months ago? Didn't realize it was out already o_O

    @spillycat Nope, the iOS remaster version, not the remake.
    Having a boss in a game that attacks the entire party with a big attack twice in a row with multi-party heal many, many levels of grind away is questionable game design. I'm surprised they didn't fix this particular boss' quirk in Dragon Quest III. Ah well.

    Makes me think of Arc Rise Fantasia which was quite challenging, but did the opposite where your characters warn you when the boss is about to use their strongest attack. SMT V does this too.

    This was one of the hassles of the classics however. I'm thinking a fair middle ground would be to have the deadliest attack happen every few turns.
    MZ 1.50 - increased major database item limits from 2000 to 9999 - Booyah lol.

    Speaking as a player, I just hope I never have to deal with 2000+ skills. Combing through them in the middle of battle would probably mean that for all practical purposes I'm going to ignore most of them. Though as human nature is so diverse I expect that somewhere out there, someone is drooling at the thought.
    With the new phone, I can now play a lot of old RPGs that my old phone just didn't have room for. Some RPGs definitely show their age even with updated graphics and quick saving.
    The longer the Pokemon cartoon series continues with Ash at the same age, the darker the implications of a boy who never ages, never realizes how many days remain until his next birthday...

    I'm sure if someone was to count the actual in-universe hours through the saga, it'd still add up to more than a year.

    IIRC He's actually had two birthdays and fairly close to each other with his 11th around the 20 year anniversary of the series. Which is only MORE confusing than anything.
    I got a new phone recently after hundreds of years with the old one, and I'm amazed at how far smartphones have come in handling videogames, as well as how fast 5G can download gigabytes of data (within minutes).

    I'm not convinced it's worth me switching to 5G just yet, but I'm glad you get to have a nice upgrade.

    A lot of people are switching to 4G and 5G this year because 3G is getting discontinued lol. Last year people at a convention were flabbergasted at how old my phone was lol.
    More than 98% of Activision Blizzard's shares voted in favor of the Microsoft takeover. Barring any weird regulation hangups, it's happening. If they don't do some massive readjustment of executive positions like Discovery did for WarnerMedia, it might not be enough to stop ActiBlizz's decline.

    you can dump all the money you want into the fund, to salvage the operation.
    if you keep hiring utter morons to drive the operation, it's gonna capsize again.
    it's not a money problem, it's a management problem.
    and more to the point, it's an HR problem: they hire suits, not professionals.

    My prediction for WoW at least is that if Dragonflight meets with lukewarm response upon release and population continues to decrease, the Microsoft execs will start seriously considering WoW 2. Somebody might say "since we've already done Overwatch 2, a WoW sequel might be long overdue".

    Or they just add it to GamePass like everything else.

    But seriously, just give it away already. Paying for a game that you have to also pay a fee to use is just asinine these days.

    Also, Bethesda is already part of Xbox so that's a mute point. I think if that were to be more accurate then it should've been said that "they could have sold it to EA".
    I've been watching videos of anime openings for video games as research to see what I'd need to make one, and I've noticed that there are a surprising number of parts in the openings where there is no actual animated motion for the characters in the openings, using camera panning or zoom instead. It seems more doable now.
    There are a lot of art resources and plugins in the MZ basic resources folder but I wonder how many new MZ users forget to check the folder or have no idea it exists. I remember when I first got MV, I didn't know that it had a basic resources folder until months after purchase.
    Morbius' drop in ticket sales by second box office weekend was not only huge but record-breaking. With Fantastic Beasts 3 around the corner, it might also break a record for highest % dip between opening weekend and 3rd weekend. Depending on how costly the marketing was, Morbius' run might barely do better than breaking even for the studio, and that's death for any possibility of a sequel being greenlighted.

    I kind of think that the superhero paradigm is going out of style now, going the way of the spaghetti western, defined a generation then became so overdone everywhere that it dies a parody of a parody of what it started out as.

    @Philosophus Vagus adaptations of comic books is not the same as super hero movies.
    Watchmen was an adaptation of a comic, and they're not exactly super heroes.
    the thing is, the writers can't come up with new ideas, and they just discovered the ton of comic books out there.
    just brace yourself for when they discover manga.
    I see a new game dev asset humble bundle is up. This one has a nice mix of icons, sprites, tiles, music, and animations. Now I need to check my budget for the month but they have some good stuff I could use in my RPG Maker project.

    I wish Degica would do another RM engine humble bundle thing, I'd love to be able to easily own all of the engines without going over my budget.

    Though Fanatical does has one for VX Ace + Xp (and assets/dlc)
    Imagine if people could RPG steal from animals in real life. Like, where would they even stick their hands? Perhaps a question best left unanswered.

    I watched jacksepticeye review this, and his brain nearly froze by the amount of nested references.
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming out this week (and Fantastic Beasts 3 next week). This means the Morbius box office take is likely to tank drastically, and perhaps fail to break even for Sony by the end of run. It could be said that the same principle applies to planning a videogame release date - be wary of release dates from the big studios.

    ? Sonic did really well at the box office, not sure what you're talking about. The first trailer did poorly, but they redid the character design and people thought the movie was decently fun. I didn't even know there was a Morbius movie, that's the Marvel vampire guy right?
    Storyteller-Hero

    It's the Marvel vampire guy, but the way Sony tried to connect it to the MCU is so bad, it's making people leave the theater with a bad aftertaste even if they somewhat liked the Morbius movie.

    Ouch. Sony's movies are so hit or miss.
    I have contributed a pixel to making the new Omori image on r/place. I feel like a patriot to the cause. Glory to RPG Maker fandom.
