The constant quest to be nosy

dadrester

3 weeks ago

Brilliant article :)

I'm sure there's another RPG I've played where you get a proper (Mr Resetti style) scolding from one of the NPCs about how rude it is to look through their stuff. They go on for ages. Eventually there's some gag if you actually look through their stuff. I wish I could remember what game it was.

For me part of it is curiosity, but a bigger part is the gathering and hoarding instinct. I don't want some materia. I want ALL the materia!

@HudsonRL I was one of the few (maybe) that quite enjoyed it at launch, but I went in with low expectations. It's sort of a relaxed grindy experience, or at least it was. I've not been back since they added the racing stuff and base building and it's seemingly changed quite a lot.

@uiruki Whatever happened to Charlies then? I moved to Scotland and had left Toon before the Greenmarket was closed. Back now and have always wondered.

Oh to anyone who's not from Newcastle but visits, the Grainger market has a little retro games shop that's quite cool.

The Grainger market is quite swanky these days. All hipster burger places and European deli counters.

There used to be another market right opposite called the greenmarket and while the Grainger market had Grainger games which was better than Electronics Boutique (game) the greenmarket had Charlies Games, who would ALWAYS break street date and often had cool imports.

@cowell I honestly think a patch could fix a lot of it. The UI is frustrating as you can't see how much damage you're doing. The attack animations despite being okay just don't "feel" good somehow. It all feels kind of slow and the UI labels on stuff are hard to read. It all seems a bit form over function.

From what I've seen of wargroove they've hit the feedback in a more direct way.

@EvilAspirin It took me ages before I decided to jump in, and then it sort of got me in with the evil save system (saving at the end of the day so you need to play another day if you want to see what's happening. I never really clicked with Harvest Moon etc but for some reason I'm totally in love with it now. There's so many layers and so much to do, but it's never overwhelming.

@RisingJaguar I don't know... The PS3 and Xbox 360 had very good innings. PS3 was released in Japan in 2006. PS4 was 2014. I'd say 8 years was decent.
