Fan of the RM series since 95, even if I only ever finished something in 2k, VX, and VX Ace. Lover of pasta dishes, popcorn, and carbonated beverages.
Dogs > cats, but cats don't suck.
I'm old enough to have grown up with a rotary phone in the house.



What do you think of Texans?

Another Texan here. Cool things about being Texan:

-We have tex mex and bbq--way better local cuisine than, say, the Northeast, and we dodged all the green chili/red chili shit from New Mexico.
If you mean the clam chowder and other assorted things from the NORTH northeast then carry on. If you don't then you're missing out!


I could listen to you folks every week or two if you could manage the time to put together a full 2 hour podcast that often. I swear this one had more laughs, more F bombs, and more good stuff than usual, even for you two~

But really, that accent tho...

Yes. Not the accent I would have expected from the super secret awesome special guest at all, but♪

Anyways, good to see you two back in the groove! I'll be looking forward to the next podcast, whenever it comes out.

Video game franchises that need to return

For some reason people seem to hate this game, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the Lennus series (the first one was ported over to the states as Paladin's Quest). That series had a really cool aesthetic, soundtrack, and world, and some neat progression, character, and combat mechanics that would be awesome to see further evolved. I recommend both games in the series for rpg aficionados, but Lennus 2 is a more polished experience if you want to hunt down the translation.

I've never played it myself, but a few of my close friends have, and the complaint is the same: You have to cast all your magic from HP. Couple that with limited recovery options (Although I think the potions are full health recovery), and well...artificial difficulty, or so it's been explained to me.

I'd probably parrot the Chrono Trigger (I didn't dislike CC, but come on guys...we need a third game), Phantasy Star (although I did like the online games and thought IV closed out the series pretty nicely, all things considered).

I'm surprised no one's said Castlevania or Mega Man yet. I'll go with those, too.


That's one of the cover heroes from one of the packs that came with MV if you pre-ordered. I believe you can still grab it now, but it runs $10 or so.

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

Etrian Odyssey III. My party's comprised of girl power. I've always been fond of games that let you build your own team (Pokemon, Disgaea, Etrian series, FF Tactics) so it's already a blast.

10/10 Would get mauled into a party wipe by a great lynx again.


the Dripping Grotto, where entropy rains?

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

Etrian Odyssey Untold on Classic Expert mode (build a party, not the here have an OP party), because I apparently hate myself.

Being blindsided by anything down on B14F is pretty much a sign to just restart, because I'm probably going to wipe. Everything has pierce across line moves and/or random multi-target attacks. EVERYTHING.

You know you messed up somewhere when your mage-healer deals more direct physical damage than the rest of the party combined.

I remember in FFXI White Mages stored "points" as they healed up to a certain maximum if they were in a specific stance. Said points made their Holy spell more powerful, but it took a while to cap it out, and the points were reset once cast.

I don't know the damage scaling of your game, but perhaps something like GRS suggested for point accumulation, and then another comment event/ variable check, in the vein of "if v > x then v = x", would let you keep that potency rolling?

RPGMaker MV Community

I remember trying to edit sprites to fit into a hot springs area wayyyyy back in 2k ( passable water tiles with the bush/half transparent check) and trying to make them an opaque vague flesh color. It looked...really, really bad.

side note: Ratty did you ever play through the levels of Sonic 1 and Sonic & Knuckles connected? I used to keep a notebook with all my pass codes I collected written down and it goes well over 200 @_@

RPG Maker MV announced for PC and MAC

I was planing on waiting for the inevitable humble bundle sale to get this since I'm low on cash right now but...I don't want to miss out on those plugins, the graphics converter and the luna engine.

The plugins (Yanfly's, at the very least) will be available from his site after release; it's just the convenience of having them already preloaded. I can't speak for if Yami's and others will have the same conditionals or not.

I haven't heard if the Ace2MV converter is slated to be available outside the preorder deal or not, and the Luna Engine for MV that's included is a demo version.
