"stuff I'm doing!" , posted Thu 2 Jan 13:41post reply

hey pals!
someone from the board, maybe badoor(?) said maybe I should tell everyone on here what I'm up to, for those that like to consume media.

insert credit has been going on as a podcast for about a year and a half - you can see/hear all that here.

I've also started doing livestreams of games I think are interesting. I'm still getting all the mechanics right (I've only done three so far), but there'll be a lot more to come. That's going on over here.

that splatterhouse livestream sucks, because I had my dang mic off. I'm gonna try it again tonight at midnight, so maybe it'll be better by the time y'all see it.

my first stream had strider for PCE in the wrong aspect ratio... but eventually it's all going to be fun times I reckon! My shubibinman 3 playthrough has no significant issues. so if you use Twitch you can look at that stuff and subscribe if you like.

Also I wrote up my top 5 games of 2013 on gamasutra, but of course none of them were actually newer than 1996.

Other than that, just making dumb video games as usual, and maybe some of them will even come out soon :P

what exciting things are YOU ALL doing!?

Mostly playing Dragon's Crown and sacrificing the occasional village to the gods in hopes of your miraculous return. We also resurrected Onsy, but people did not pray to the moon hard enough and he ran away afterwards.

Nice Runes in Dragon's Crown (did you know: your spell names are in English, even in the Japanese version). But what is the Unleash Exodus combination?

hmm, I guess that spoiler thing would make sense given they couldn't change the runes themselves, and each one of them is associated with a certain letter.

I am really bad at remembering to go to web sites these days, even forums. I try!!!

Hooray, I finally achieved that old cafe mainstay of summoning old cafe member back from the void. I feel like I have grown so much

Anyway, thanks for sharing the news on what you've been up to, exodus. I've enjoyed listening to the podcast and your top games of "2013" on gamasutra.

As for me, I'm in your standard "post-college 1st year at a job confusion state of not knowing what to do next in life". But no one cares about that.

More importantly, I've been playing Gurumin as part of a Falcom Month community blog event throughout January. I've taken to blogging recently as a way to waste time at my job and improve my skills at writing in English in hopes it will help for future graduate level studies. But any excuse to play more Falcom games is good enough for me.

Hurray Exodus!
You're sorely missed around here. At least Facebook manages to be useful to spy on you know stuff about stuff.

Stuff I'm doing: I'm buying a flat with my eventualy-to-be-husband (but he doesn't know that last part yet).
My astral powers are growing, I'm starting to be able to predict big personal crisis and the appropriate answer to them (sometimes).
I really think good astrologers are better than most shrinks, and that's what I should be doing at a later stage to pay the bills.
And also, you should definitely buy Pokémon X and Y, they are the bestest!

That live-streaming thing sounds pretty interesting.

Being employed by one of the worldwide leaders in ALWAYS CONNECTED ALWAYS ONLINE ALWAYS FUN HIGH TECH INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT, I am preparing its future by making stuff with scissors, cardboard, paper, glue and the few remaining fingers that have not yet perished because of the aforementioned deadly weapons.

Also I am (not very energetically) looking for a new flatmate. Usually these things are left on my doorstep in late January once the neighbours grow tired of the baby flatmates they received for Christmas.

yes, you did it!!

I'll read some of your falcom impressions, that may be interesting for me... I'll be curious to see what you think of Dragon Slayer. there are a few cute moments in there that I really enjoy.

Iggy, I should get my chart read by you! I keep thinking I should do that, even if I don't really believe in it :3 that is neat news about the flat though, and the future husband! I guess he has been around for quite some time. I reeeeally can't see myself getting into pokemonxy though.

Chaz - your flatmate must be a real jerk to move out during the holidays! let's hate whoever that flatmate may be with all our might!

the livestreaming stuff should get more interesting as I bring more of my consoles upstairs. going to get my marty, my staturn, and my PC-fx up there soon.


OH ALSO: I bought messatsu.com just now, in honor of our dearly departed MMC member who went off to soccer camp and never returned. not sure what to do with it, if anything. I was thinking of making a site for casual players of fighting games, people who like them but are not very good at them (like me). anyone want to participate?

He's peeked in! Happy new year Exodus!

Stuff that's been happening:
- Hazzan came back as our new years surprise
- We temporarily bought back Onsy with some obscene voodoo dance
- It also bought back Talbaineric with a slight delay
- Maou left a curse on me dropping my discovery rate of glazed chocolate cake donuts to 0.1%

2013 was a really interesting year as I got to meet up with a number of MMCafe's fascinating members. It was also a year where there were actually games that many old-school gamers cared for (Dragon's Crown for one).

Most of my 2013 gaming activities were in support for the fighting game scene albeit behind the scenes, like helping out EVO a little and whatnot. I'm planning to give focus more to MMCafe this year, doing something about the index for one.

Holy joyshticks you bought messatsu.com lol. Maybe make it something for casual reading amongst casual fans?

huzzah for hazzan!!!

yeah, with messatsu.com, if I do anything, I might like to have a site that describes different fighting games in terms of why they're interesting, why people might like to care about them, what's different about them, etc. just use a template for every game, and put them all up there for casual folks like me to browse!!

Hmm, a kinder man's Shoryuken.com. I...would read that! You know, if not for Tim, I probably would have no idea that the IC podcast was still going from the main page, but it is a lot of fun. Thanks!

So more of a reference site that wouldn't necessarily try to have frequent new content (sort of how the current specialized FG sites keep posting about combos videos and tournament which end up sinking the posts with actual news), but at least try and be thourough about the games it covers, like a Fighters Generation that focuses more on the games and their gameplay (maybe lore, if high-end gameplay isn't the focus?) than on characters and artwork?

Could be interesting...


This reminds me I should probably update my own site project, but with FFXI becoming more soloable and completable than it ever was, I haven't resisted trying to catch up on its old content instead.

yeah, more like that. I was thinking I might have a template the site follows, just saying why a game is interesting, what's different about it, and link to some videos.

Great writeup! You did a fantastic job explaining why each game is so interesting and worth revisiting. Thanks for being so concise and specific. I appreciate the wide frame of reference and higher level of awareness that you bring to your games writing. I think most writers aren't even aware that games can be interesting in the ways you described. Sorry for the awkward heaps of praise, it's just that I'm surrounded by people who think Bioshock, Braid and Journey are the alpha and omega of games and don't really care to look back further than 5 years into the past. Hopefully your writeup will encourage them to go exploring more.

That sounds fantastic! I've been a diehard casual fighting game player all my life. I love em, but I don't necessarily want to go on SRK and study frame data. I'd definitely be interested in a site like that.

Gunhouse, which is the first game I've directed, I guess, is coming out on the 15th for PSM (vita/playstation-approved android phones). I still need to make a trailer!

Is there any reason I cannot buy this on the sony entertatinment network website like any other vita game? Or is it because it is also a PSM game they don't list that on the website?

I've heard it takes a while for games to show up on the web site. I'll try to find it tomorrow, but I think for now it may just not exist!

The only way to buy it right now is direct from the vita store...

Seriously though, I would like to know why you are developing for Vita vs other platforms. There any advantages to it?


As a game developer myself I'm curious about this as well. Personally I don't care for the idea that phones are the future, but I'm quite the fan of handheld consoles like the Vita and the 3DS. For me, while I can certainly adjust game ideas to work with touch controls, the solidity of real buttons and real direction pads are essential for the kinds of games I want to make.

Unfortunately when I hear 'mobile games' I think of cash grabs with crappy control schemes for the most part, at least in the English-speaking world. But then again, TV-based consoles are becoming very 'dudebro shooter'-centric, so who can say for sure what the alternative is for old fashioned folks like us?

It's important to note that Brandon & Friends developed this game for PS Mobile, not specifically for PS Vita (although I am not sure how many Sony mobile devices outside of Vita use PS Mobile).

I went through the trouble of recharging my Vita and lo and behold, Gunhouse was available for us Japanese account peons who are still not allowed to buy Spelunky and Hotline Miami. And because I dislike Defend your Castle less than I like Exodus & Juan, I went ahead and spent the exorbitant¥325 requested by the store. Spend them wisely!

I really like the idea of rewarding the player for checking the credits. I don't think i have ever seen that in a video game before, and that kind of new experience is why I buy games in the first place. So I guess "mission accomplished".

Anyway, Necrosoft can already fax a PR to the Washington Post and Vogue Italia that, thanks to (at the very minimum) my purchase, Gunhouse is now outselling Hotline Miami and Spelunky on Vita in japan.

Now I'm sad I don't have any device I can play that on... If you keep releasing on PS Mobile, it will have to change.
But yeah, what other devices actually use it? I thought Sony was with Nokia, and then it went bad so Nokia was all frowny face, and then that was more or less it. Did they release it widely on Android, or is it really limited to Sony stuff nobody is aware of?

that's two confirmed japanese sales! success!!!

I don't really expect everyone to like it. it's rough around the edges, and the mechanic is a new idea, and that's always rough for a while. some people really like it, so that's all I can ask for.

oh, and as for nokia, it's microsoft who bought them. Sony has ericsson.

Shameless self promotion time: I thought I'd share some of the posts I recently wrote, which I hope cafe members would enjoy reading.

First is my post on Gurumin, a super charming action game by Falcom, a game which the one and only Exodus helped bring out to the west.

Second is my post on the recently translated and very controversial SNES-exclusive Ys V. I spent a lot of time talking on the reception to Ys V before even starting to talk on Ys V itself. I felt like the difference in context between 1995 & 2014 is one of the bigger reasons why Ys V has a lot of value today than when it was out. But I regret not really articulating as much why I loved PLAYING Ys V as I should.

BONUS POST: An old college paper on the tradition of eating KFC on Christmas in Japan. Which by the way, I was mostly able to write thanks to Professor giving me some tips on the topic way back when.

Ok bye.

I've still never played Ys V - I feel like I should some day. I can imagine I'll have an alright time with it, though I do like the original battle system. In fact, I've actually never properly gone through Ys IV! Maybe that should be first, hmm.

Yeah Ys V's battle system is sort of a half step towards whats in the modern Ys games. It added the sword swing but is quite slow and somewhat imprecise, while the modern Ys games boosted up the battle speed so that it hearkens back to Ys I to IV. But if you are to pick Ys V, get Ys V Expert.

hmmm, that all depends on whether I think I'm going to enjoy the challenge, or just enjoy getting through the story and the experience. it's more likely the latter, in which case making the game harder won't do much for me!

Yeah you're right. I never played Ys V Expert. But given that it's a rerelease 3 months after, I assume it won't have many alterations beside some simple stat changes (boost boss health, reduce Adol's health & xp, more grinding, less money etc). So maybe you should stick with regular Ys V. Sorry to be so flip-floppy about my suggestions.

Thanks for the link to your post about Ys V badoor! It's timely since I've been rediscovering how much I used to love Ys lately after having a great time with Memories of Celceta. I've always been interested in Ys V even though it has an awful reputation, I guess because the game art is really amazing, but for some reason I've never gotten around to try it. Maybe now I'll take the time?

That is an interesting lore of american gaming. I don't remember Ys V being unloved in Europe. Obviously less revered than PC Engine games, per the simple lack of an Ys fanbase on SFC, but certainly not seen as a black sheep of the series or anything as violent as what is suggested in the scanned review; it was and still remain simply an afterthought.

I was personally extremely disappointed by Ys Celceta. It only held my attention for a couple of hours. I felt the UI, controls, system and overall presentation were a huge step down in craftmanship after the excellent Nayuta no Kiseki on PSP the previous summer.

Thanks. Very happy to see that you liked it. I guess since its now in English, there's never been a better time to try it.

I think I overstated how much badly received Ys V was. I should have known that GameFan tend to make a mountain out of a molehill. But finding stuff like the Japanese reception (or any market for that matter) of a particular game at the time of its release is not easy. Although I find it weird that non of the music in Ys V is ever reused in any of Falcom's arrangement CDs or concerts. But that is very weak evidence.

Yeah I'm worried about that. I heard similar disappointments from some of my friends. Also I'm really sad that Nayuta no Kiseki would probably be ignored in terms of localization against a new Ys or a real mainline Kiseki game. Tha game looks like so much fun and everyone who played it says it's great, even better than Memories Of Celceta. I'm even considering importing it despite having zero knowledge in Japanese language.

hmmm, that is unfortunate about celceta. I played it at E3 and quite liked it, but that was only 15 minutes. It seemed like a good "non-ys" sort of action RPG, and while I did suspect it could get repetitive, it felt pretty slick and smooth.

well, now I want to get it to see for myself. hmm.
