Best Pokemon game to play if you only play one?

Back when Pokemon first came out in the 90s, I bashed it pretty hard as a passing fad that would fizzle out in a year or two. Boy, I've never been more wrong about something, as it's now up there with Zelda and Mario among the biggest gaming franchises in the world. I've never played through a mainl...

Re: Friday the 13th (PS4/XONE/PC)

I thought I would never play Friday the 13th again after last weekend.. but I have to admit, it's pulled me back for a few more games since then. In one game, the guy playing as Jason was badass and wiped out all the counselors pretty easily.. it was actually fun to watch (you can watch the other co...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

While mentioning good SRPGs here, I'd put the Disgaea series near the top of the list too. Its gameplay is great and it takes a humorous tone to the story and characters. The only one I've played is Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness on the PSP, but it was very good. Has anyone here played the Fire Embl...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

Have you tried the mobile port? It's actually very nice to play with the touch controls and has much sharper graphics than the other versions. No, I didn't even realize there was a mobile port. I've played through the PS1 version once back around 2000, and the PSP version once around 2010. I prefer...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

Yeah, ptdebate has it right - you learn it as a Chemist ability. Admittedly, it's been like 5-10 years since the last time I played through FFT, so my memory on some things in fuzzy. One thing I do remember though is that I hate Chemists. Well, really, I hate using healing items in any RPG.. I want ...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I was told to avoid grinding in FFT because the enemies level with you, essentially making leveling up at all pointless. Nope, or "sorta", but I think this is a common misunderstanding with the game. Here's how it works to my recollection... For random battles, the enemies do level up wit...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I've always heard people say that FFT is a hard game, but I don't get that. It is challenging, but I think the secret to success is a lot of grinding by replaying battles to get your levels up. You'll lose here and there, and it sucks to lose 30 minutes into a battle and have to start over, but gene...

Friday the 13th (PS4/XONE/PC)

I played a few hours of the new Friday the 13th game this past weekend on PS4. It is currently a free download for PS+ members during October. I've been interested in the game since first hearing about it a couple years ago. It got mediocre reviews, partly due to several technical issues, but since ...

Re: Call of Duty Bops 4 50 gig day 1 shocker.

I think younger gamers who have embraced online games may be in for a rude reality in the future when they realized their games have disappeared. Then again 90% of gamers aren't collectors so they probably won't even care. I do want to add that this is not YET the new reality. My new consoles have ...

Re: 2018/10/15: Playstation 4: Little Nightmares

Interesting review. I’ll trust your call on this one.. almost got it a few months back, but glad I passed. I download and play a fair amount of indie games, especially ones with unique premises or very good reviews. Little Nightmares fit the bill, but it’s puzzle-platformer design reminded me too mu...
