  1. (see picture) My Hoptimist just got a new friend (hooray for late birthday presents I suppose?)


  2. I need something NEW.

    Free you say? Then you probably can't go wrong with the undisputed masterpiece that is Cave Story. A gorgeous little platformer with great gameplay, beautifully designed levels and an emotional story with multiple endings that demands to be played several times to see them all. It is according to some among the best platformerers ever made, and a cult classic. A game everyone needs to play at least once.
  3. Steam games under 20

    Huh, I guess I must have missed that for some reason, I must've equated RPG with JRPG since she mentioned Final Fantasy.
  4. Steam games under 20

    I'd like to remind everyone that Nova is looking for JRPG's, which is all things considered a very very specific genre, and the majority of suggestions so far have been games that have taken inspiration from JRPG's but are no way to RPG's in gameplay.
  5. Steam games under 20

    First things first, don't buy any games until the steam Halloween sales starts next Friday, at which point every single game will be at least 50% off and many even 75% off. Now on to the games, I'm not exactly sure how good your PC is, but I'll try to mention some games that are good but not too demanding. - Valkyria Chronicles: a wonderful tactical JRPG game that in a World War I'esque world with a charming cast of characters, great gameplay and an intriguing and at times heartbreaking story. Overall a very good game. 20$ atm. possibly $ next week. - Final Fantasy 6+9: not much needs to be said about these 2 legendary games, both considered among the best JRPG's ever made, and by some among the best video games ever made. They'll probably be about $10 next week. Do note that Final Fantasy 6 has a slightly bad port, and is probably better played on an emulator. - Tales of Symphonia: a charming adventure story with a lovable cast of characters that quickly spirals into a deconstruction of the hero's journey, and gets incredibly dark and poignant with his messages, all wrapped around a great world, fascinating characters and a really fun action RPG combat system. Overall a ton of fun! Probably $10 next week, perhaps 5. Again there are there games like, Disgaea, Trials of Cold Steel and Hyper Dimensional Girl: Neptunia, but I consider those inferior to those 3 mentioned. edit: remember that you can always refund the game within 2 hours of playtime, if your computer isn't beefy enough to play it. So don't be afraid of buying a game, since you can always refund it.
  6. Online F2P CCG Suggestions?

    Well there are a few major ones out there at the moment, - Firstly there's Duelyst, which compared to Hearthstone is played on a grid where units can move which adds an interesting twist to the concept. It's also much more generous with card acquisition rate with 1 legendary dropping in 1/4 packs, and within one month of starting I had gotten to the equivalent of rank 5 and a highly competetive deck. I've heard of plenty of people who reached legend within a month of playing. you also get a legendary card at the end of every month if you read rank 10. In general the barrier to entry is very low compared to Hearthstone, though it may have gotten slightly bigger in the past year since I haven't played in a while. - alternatively there are things like Gwent which I've heard great things about but haven't played myself. - In the end you could also just played Yu-Gi-Oh in one of the plethora of clients available online, Cardfight Vanguard on CF-Area or Magic the Gathering in Cockatrice. In the end I always return to Hearthstone after playing other card games, but I can definitely understand why some people may be turned off by how hard it is to keep up with the card releases these days.
  7. Reborn City in Minecraft

    That seems like a very daunting task, but I'd love to see some of the famous landmarks of Reborn re-created. It's probably not necessary to design the interior of every house as that would make a difficult task more or less impossible, but if, say, you could re-create something like Obsidia Ward, that would already be a great accomplishment. I wish you the best of luck with the task ahead.
  8. Digimon: Your Digital Dream

    Despite the tamer sprites looking quite badly designed, and some questionable area tile sets, the game does the generally good if it can pull off a good story with the Pokémon inspired combat system.
  9. Remove one of these from the battle system

    I'd rather not remove any of those as they are all very integral to the Pokémon competitive experience.but if I have to choose one to remove that would be the least debilitating, it would be priority moves as the rest are too important for the overall health of the competitive scene. Types, status conditions and stat modifiers are the heart and soul of the Pokémon game play and the games would be lesser for the removal of them.
  10. starlight divide

    Starlight Divide still only exists in a conceptual state.Amethyst sometimes post about her notes for how the game will be, the character designs and the lore. But besides that the game barely exists as a game yet. What has been the focus of development so far has been the engine, or rather the modifications Ame is doing to RPGmaker to make it suitable to function as a turn-based RPG engine which has mostly been focused on movement so far. Again, the game is still very early in development, and as this GIF shows it's still using RPG maker assets and has no implemented assets of its own. So while it's great that you have a lot of enthusiasm for the game we probably shouldn't expect it out in the next 4-5 years.
  11. RPG recommendations

    I've always been fond of Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy IX and find those to the best games in the series.
  12. A Little start of newcomers

    *Ahem* we have an entire post dedicated to introduce people to the game, so I recommend you go there and read that one to start off.
  13. Kakegurui Episode 5 [Spoilers]

    Yes in the sense that the winner would have his debts swapped with the loser.
  14. Kakegurui Episode 5 [Spoilers]

    That second explanation was pretty spot on, one minor detail though. Saotome does not have her $10M debt which she gained from Jun paid off by the SC, only her false debt ($310M), so she's technically only 250 million in the positive.
  15. Do you wear shoes and/or socks indoors?

    I wear both, and by shoes I mean slippers, and by socks I sometimes wear two pairs (i.e. a regular pair and sometimes a woolen pair over the winter). Coldness is the enemy after all.
