Sony’s PlayStation brought us epic, multi-disc RPGs, but the technical limitations of the system resulted in games that do not look as good today. Conversely, SNES titles often look very good on modern displays, leading to this resolution exploration.
In this special round-table discussion, panelists Adeki, SiliconNooB, and Lusipurr (along with special guest Imitanis) discuss what it takes to make a truly great video game, and what video games best fulfil the potential of the medium.
Final Fantasy IX is coming soon to PC, Lightning models clothing for Louis Vuitton, Sony reveals that a second console is required to run Playstation VR, and the creator of One Punch Man has a new 2016 anime in the news of the week!
Ethos is finally for real, actually, truly, really leaving truthfully this time. He chose to go out on the same notes that defined his time writing for Lusipurr.com, that is to say that he wrote a fruity nebulous nothing about games he likes. Sorry.
Ethos examines comedy in video games by opening with a premise, exploring that premise with examples and then asking the readers to participate in the discussion. How frightfully exciting!
Ethos and SiliconNooB discuss changes to PlayStation Network content and prices, Mel buys Smash Bros. fN3DS whilst Bup muses on Nintendo’s decision to release it just a month before the Wii U version, and Lusipurr searches for the best ‘beginner RPG’.
The Xbone does another 180, Nintendo makes more excuses, and Bravely Default may still release in Europe during 2013 in the news of the week!
Ethos goes for broke and follows through on his promise to sum up the reasons why he loves Final Fantasy IX so much. Nostalgic and light-hearted, what could be under the surface that draws Ethos in?
Ethos – along with all of Lusipurr.com – is just setting out on his Christmas in Narshe adventure. To set the tone, he looks at how the game in question opens and why a strong opening is so important to an RPG.
Ethos goes a little more in-depth with this week’s character study. The frilly Canadian’s love for Final Fantasy IX is nothing new, but he has never really talked at length about Steiner and Ethos feels the knight deserves the spotlight.
