@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

Thank you for everything.

Just wanted to say, thank you for everything, everyone.

 

Just as a country is nothing without its people, a community is nothing without its members.

 

It's thanks to everyone who participated that I have as many fond memories as I do, and I wish all the good-natured members I've met over the many, many years this site has been alive lives full of good fortune and happiness.

 

I'm sure I will remember and cherish both the fun times and the people I made lasting friendships with for the rest of my life.

 

While the golden days of these forums may have come to an end, please do feel free to let me know at any time how you are doing and what's new in your lives. The connection I built with these forums, no matter how thinned by the passing of time, is something I truly value, and having an old friend say hello would be an easy way to bring joy to my day. :)

 

Best wishes,

 

"Fire Blazer"

So are you going to close the forums to new members, in order to prevent more spambots?

lol, I didn't think of that. I just felt like making this post.

 

I'll look into some measure for the spambots.

 

EDIT: I don't feel like manually validating accounts (I don't have that kind of time), so I've disabled new registrations.

Spambots are currently being shot in the face by me when I have spare time.  Current rate of intervention needed is about once a week or less.

 

We should be capable of allowing new registrations as long as some of the "Staff" team is still around.

 

Also, screw you Blazer.  Now I have to join Twitter :mellow:

I mean... it's your call, I guess. I'd like to help, but I just have too much going on for me to get into the habit of such a thing... (or I'd be making actual posts, tbh)

 

I think you have admin access to change it? Maybe? If not, let me know I can do it

 

And... no you don't? XP I just comment on random stuff on Twitter, I can't even recommend following myself. That place is just kind of a void to throw thoughts in, if you ask me. Unless you're like a news site or some company trying to market a service or product or something like that with a specific purpose, haha. Or a super memer or the like.

 

I mostly just use it for news, myself, since it's useful as a news feed/aggregate of sorts. Then I occasionally comment on stuff to waste time or whatever, usually when I'm bored (like while walking around or waiting in line) or procrastinating getting up from bed in the morning, I think. :P

I can't be bothered to do that much. lol. And it's too short for my thoughts. Now, using it to post images from my 3DS or Nintendo Switch? Sure! lol

 

I thought this topic was about closing the forums oops.

Less of a pain than doing it by taking a photo, closing the game, removing my sd card, putting it in the comp, getting the picture, uploading somewhere, and then sharing it. lol

149 characters a post isn't enough and having me use something like Twitlonger turns it into a blog thing.  And I already have one of those.

oh, totez. I mean, I just kind of end up spamming when I want to say more. only raaaarely use Twitlonger. but too lazy to start my own blog/probably even less people would read it than my Twitter, so lol

 

besides, the 140 character limit at least makes me TRY to avoid spamming and ranting. give me a full post every time and I'm even less likely to hold back/restrain myself, lol

 

btw, where's your blog

In my signature.  I avoid posting anything politics or the like because it's far too easy to get people angry on the internet for not agreeing with them. 

 

Heck, I typically won't even post something even remotely controversial like "I didn't like Gurren Lagann...if I could stay awake through it".

Yes, it was when the forum IV went down and you had to restart. The date was November 26th 2008. I check in from time to time. Sad to see a place slowly die. But it is what it is.

Man, what a throwback. It's nice someone remembers though, heh.

 

And yeah, I know, I feel like most of the old members aren't even that invested into FE anymore, haha. I mean, some of us still play, but even if we do, it's not really like the old days, and we don't have the same free time to discuss and make jokes and sprite edits and all that, heh. Like you said though, it is what it is. Thanks for stopping by.
