    Glad you brought up .hack and the era of episodic RPGs. I don't think it's out of the question to attribute my love of episodic RPGs to Xenosaga and Golden Sun at the time. That fixation continued with The After Years (Another loonie in my 'Victor mentions After Years' jar), Final Fantasy Dimensions, and also led me to one of my favourite games of all time; Live-A-Live for SNES.

    I think a part of that Episodic RPG DNA is what won me over to a few recent free-to-play mobile RPGs. I can recognize their exploitative, cynical nature, but sometimes I just want a good cliffhanger that I can come back to later.

    FFXIV on the other hand sits comfortably somewhere in the middle of "Traditional Episodic RPG" and "Exploitative Nickel and Diming Machine". Obviously they have plenty of systems in place to keep you spending money, but the sheer amount of content, and story, and lore is supremely satisfying.

    I spent all 220 orbs I had saved and didn't get a single focus character. I'm sorry Charlotte. I'm so sorry.

    As an After Years apologist, I stand in solidarity with Nadia. There are so many good parts that just got wrapped in a horribly unfun package. I'll be damned if Luca, Calca and Brina aren't some of my favourite characters in the IV universe. I also adore the final dungeon/boss.

    I swear I will move back to Toronto if it means I ever get to talk to someone about After Years again.

    I don't understand why we didn't just go all out and make a $150 bill.

    I hope this means the rebirth of Virtual Console support. I was looking forward to Square's DS library on Wii U but that dream is so very dead.

    The reveal of the Map of the Three Great Continents was the biggest news for me. Having a better idea of the geography of the world helps a ton for lore-mongers like me.

    @Tetragrammaton Focus and 5 Stars are at 4.25% right now. I can probably save up enough for one more set of 5 pulls and then I'm gonna pump the brakes a bit and head back to working my way through Genealogy of the Holy War for my Fire Emblem fix.

    Used the 80 orbs I've been saving up and not a single 5 Star. And out of that only one Green and he was a 3 star.

    On a related note, for the first time ever I watched some videos of people pulling things in various F2P games last night. That is a bizarre, bizarre world that I don't understand on a fundamental level. I'm going to stick to my plan of never spending more than $30 on a F2P game ever.

    Also, it was nice to hear serious F2P talk on the last Blood God. I think it's important to keep talking about the ethics of gacha games as they become more and more ubiquitous.

    @KaiserWarrior That remains to be seen for things like Hyrule Warriors or the aforementioned Fire Emblems. Other than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo doesn't seem to be too concerned with releasing 'Director's Cut' or 'Game of the Year' editions. In fact I can't think of a single handheld release that has seen a 'Complete Edition'. So I think my concerns about game preservation are still pretty legitimate. If by 'vast majority' you meant a handful of the biggest AAA titles in any given year, then yes, you're right. Most of Bandai Namco's releases features large amounts of DLC and I don't see any of them getting 'Complete Editions' either. All your Soul Caliburs and Tales ofs are going to difficult to archive further down the road.
