@slash: Soon we'll replace our instant messaging habits with fictional ones.

Programming some test puzzles though the game isn't really about puzzles. It just so happens that they're the best distractions/variety I can come up with.

I'm also discovering that this is just a truth table yet there's no mention of this sort of stuff in game design articles, maybe there's another term for it? I see it all the time in games though. I wish there was just a glossary of puzzle "types".


Just in time after my birthday. Also just realized today is the anniversary of my RMN account creation date.

Update! Summer 2019

Aw shit, 2019 is gonna be year of the rm2k/3. Keep it up.

RMN's Favourite Video Game Tracks of All Time

Honestly not seeing a whole lot of overlap here, I was thinking OSTs might allow for more interesting ranking. Granted it's a low sample count and then again I can think of highly rated songs that would not necessarily end up as part of the best OSTs. Not really a suggestion but something to ponder about.

Talk about RM Games! Mid-Year Misao Discussion Topic

I think it's fine since a big part of the community makes commercial games anyway. I've been pushing for an isolated category for it. Obviously it doesn't really contribute to this years Misaos but it's enough to have discussions about relevant games on the site that you are playing.

Cyber Factor Review

Hells yeah

Screenshot Survival 20XX

FF7 remake. It's a thing.

Yeah I kind of warmed up to it, but maybe it was because the rest of e3 at that point was so depressing. Some of the combat stuff reminds me of an expansion on Parasite Eve rather than just going "turn based sux" It's kind of insane that Midgar is going to take up 2 bluray discs. The disparity between the sort of content late 90s Squaresoft was able to churn out and how much it costs to make fully real time assets to match that is just insane.
