Last Quest IV: The Prequ...
RPG Maker 2000 adventure for the Golden Game Mak Contest



RPGS... you've beaten

I just finished the main portion of Xenoblade Chronicles X last night. Easily one of the best games on the Wii U (not much competition there...) and definitely worth the price, since there is easily 120+ hours of content.

[RMVX ACE] What do you consider a playable/smooth FPS?

I find anything 28 FPS or higher to be playable, although I can accept 26 FPS depending on how fast the gameplay is in general. I prefer >40 FPS, but I don't lose my mind when I encounter locked 30 FPS like some people do.

Console RPG Makers (RPG Maker Fes)

It looks like a port of RPG Maker DS, which if I remember correctly, was plagued by space limitations and one-game-per-cartridge. The 3DS should be better since it runs on removable storage, but is it possible to create custom content or at least edit colors? It would be great as something to just mess around with on a long flight or at the doctor's office, but being limited to RTP (depending on the size of the RTP, this could be very bad or doable) is a major concern for me.

Planet Stuck The Return Of Corrin

Planet Stuck is a synonym for Earthbound. I just got that.

So here's a huge list of free music resources

It's kind of funny that the page the link goes to has a link that takes you back to RMN.

Nintendo Switch; Yes, that's the name

I think my biggest issue isn't the system itself, but the way Nintendo has been lying about tech specs for nearly a decade. Granted, they never officially promised anything, but consider the past couple systems they've given us and what various Nintendo reps said they would do:

Nintendo 3DS: Gameboy Advance games will be on the eShop. Technically they were if you bought it at the original price point, but I've heard different stories of how well/poorly they run. Nintendo later said the hardware couldn't support emulating the GBA games, and it took too much time and effort just to get the versions for the early adopters to work. The games would later be ported to the Wii U to spite all of the early adopters of the 3DS even further.

Nintendo Wii U: Gamecube games will be on the eShop. Nintendo later states that they tried, but the hardware couldn't support the emulated Gamecube OS while also running the Wii U. Supports the Wii OS and games just fine, though. I remember a lot of people holding out on buying a Wii U until GC games hit the eShop, but that never happened.

They've been pretty conservative on what the Switch will offer as far as ports and the eShop goes, probably because they learned their lesson after two systems not working out like they thought.

Nintendo Switch; Yes, that's the name

Yeah, I’m probably going to use it as a handheld more than anything else, since I have to share the T.V. with two other people at home. 2.5 hours isn’t probably that bad for something like this, especially since I only play games nowadays for 2 hours at a time, but I dunno, I kind of think that they could have done better with this in the back of my mind... Oh well, you’re probably right.

If you're at home I think you can just plug the USB/AC adapter directly into the tablet portion even when it's not in the dock. I can't remember if it's sold separately or not, though.


Does VXAce have a horse sprite? I'll uh... I'll be that.

Old school RMers: what are some communities that you used to belong to that have ceased to exist?

Is Charas-Project still around? I was on there. Also RPG Crisis during I believe two different iterations of that place. Can't for the life of me remember what any of my old usernames were. I think there was also one called RPG Chaos, which was like a very very small RPG Crisis. There was one other that I can't remember the name of, though.

[Poll] Let's Talk About Phantasy Star

I've played all of them through the Sega Genesis Collection, and I played Portable and Portable 2, which were essentially handheld MMORPGS. The first was local only, but the second had online servers where you could join a party.

According to Sega Genesis Collection, Phantasy Star IV was so complex for the time that the game included a massive strategy guide book that listed where to go and what to do for all the quests and side-quests.
