  • So I take tiu yave plajed xenoblade chronicles 2?

    Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • Actually no, I haven't. Watched and read about quite a bit of it, but haven't actually played it yet, been caught up in too many other games to add another huge JRPG to my backlog. I'm probably gonna wait until all the DLC expansions are out and a possible "complete" edition gets released.

    • Huh ok I was just curious hear others thoughts on it . I ended up loving it despite my intial negative perception of it

      Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • There's some things about it that are off-putting for me, character designs being one of the biggest, but I'm typically pretty good at being able to look past that stuff and enjoy the gameplay. I know it has quite a sizeable fanbase with many saying it's the best Xenoblade yet, so I'm excited to eventually play it.

    • Oh yeah the character designs are Jesus

  • Hey, you're on ResetEra aren't you? I browse it often and have happened to notice you.

    Posted by ich Will

    • Yeah I'm on it under the same name and avatar. Was also a NeoGaf member for a while, but, well, that place went to hell ha ha.

      Posted by Common Knowledge

    • Ah yeah, used to browse there too but then I moved to Era. Always was mainly on here though. If you want I can edit these posts on your wall in case you prefer ZUers to not know about your Era account.

    • Nah it's pefectly fine.

  • your name seems familiar

    Posted by goronmario

  • whoaaaa stranger danger! I haven't seen you in ages, how are you doing?

    Posted by Aurelia

  • What's up? It's nice to see you posting on the forums again - I remember you used to post quite a bit back in 2011 or so (under goronwarrior25, or something like that). I used to go by Julian Assange, Re_L, and Zombie Jesus around that time. Hope you don't mind that I stole your avatar from a few years back :P

    Posted by Bowsette

    • Hey! Yeah, I remember you!

      Posted by Common Knowledge

    • I used to go by GoronWarrior25, and then Common Knowledge for a good while ha ha. I kind of fell out of ZU a little bit after the redesign, but a lot of that had to do with college/grad school taking over. I'm trying to get more active again though!

      Posted by Common Knowledge

    • And ha ha, no problem about the avatar! It's a really good movie. :)

  • [quote]The thing with me is that once a game classifies itself to be of a certain type or genre, or to be a certain franchise, I expect a certain degree of standards, I guess you could say, for it. If a game is purporting to be an action-adventure game, there's a certain richness in scale involved in that that the game can fail to reach. [/quote]

    This is very much the issue. Zelda presents itself as a fantasy adventure, two things which carry burdens which, by and large, Zelda has not met. I fundamentally disagree with Jeff's idea that "well it's a videogame first and foremost" justifies this.

  • So like, you post in the SS thread.

    Oh my god I love you man.

    ---

    Not sure if I've told you, or if you even care, but that Sean Malstrom forum I told you about ages ago decided to dissociate itself from Malstrom because of some of the more politically-charged and probably-discriminatory things he was saying. To that end they've changed the name of their forum to [url=http://ged.prophpbb.com/]"The Great Entertainment Decline"[/url].

    I can still count the number of regulars on one hand (and I'm not one of them myself lol), but the poster "Raien" gives heaps of interesting mini-reviews of games he's played in the "Opinions of Games" thread. Just something to take a peek at if you're interested or if you're looking for games to play/avoid.

  • We all wanted a Metroid, but let's face it: Nintendo likes to play it safe, and Retro's most recent success was DKCR.

    I'm not incredibly excited for it, but I don't think it's particularly bad.

    Posted by Double A

  • You're welcome! Hope it was a good one. ^^
