Blacker than a moonless night, hotter and more bitter than hell itself... that is coffee.

    Just those four alone don't fully capture what have come to define my tastes in videos games and aren't necessarily my four favorite games, but a lot of what I currently love about the medium and video game storytelling was probably seeded by all of them in some way.Edited 5 days ago by Unknown

    Sojiro definitely did not start things off on the right foot, but damn, if he didn't completely win me over through the course of the main story and both his & Futaba's confidants in Persona 5. Just about everything Sojiro does over the course of the game is either for the sake of Futaba, the protagonist or Wakaba's memory; even when he messes up, it all tends to be rooted in concern for the well-being of the two kids under his care, Futaba especially.

    I'm playing through the Switch version of the first Builders right now, and man, is it an absolute treat. Dragon Quest tends to produce quality spin-offs anyway, but the amount of care and craft that went into Builders really shows; I think my favorite small touch is having the "present-day" characters talk in the standard localization style of modern DQ releases, while having characters of the past (be it in memories/dreams, as ghosts or in writing) talk like the characters did in Dragon Warrior. It's a neat little flourish that the localization crew didn't have to do, but it's much appreciated.

    Anyway, I still have several chapters to go, but I'm already completely on-board for the sequel.

    I'm so incredibly curious about the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, but it looks like we're not going to be getting any answers on that enigma anytime soon.

    @moochan I generally love the approach they've taken to localizing Dragon Quest games since the original release of VIII, but hoo boy, even I'll admit that DQ IV's script was hard to get through at times.

    I normally love talking to all of the NPCs in Dragon Quest games, but some of the accents in IV were nearly impenetrable.

    I understand SE's reasoning for it, but it does sting that the Switch version is still so far off and that we won't be getting the 3DS version at all.

    Still, finally seeing Dragon Quest XI in English sure is a sight for sore eyes. XI looked like a delightful entry in the series even when I couldn't understand a word of what was happening on-screen, and a lot of these tweaks for the Western release are quite welcome.

    I got back into Harvest Moon: Animal Parade recently, so probably that. I'm in the middle of my first winter, and I've finally reached the point where I can afford really nice things; I've upgraded all of my farm buildings, bought the second farm plot and almost saved up for the third. I'm also, thankfully, finished with the quest to find all of the missing circus animals and very nearly finished with the main story quest to ring the last bell.

    As a poor kid that could never afford to get things from Toys R Us (and didn't live within a convenient driving distance of one anyway), the place wasn't really a part of my childhood. By the time I started buying games with my own money, it was always from the nearby GameCrazy (RIP) and Electronics Boutique.

    My only lasting memory of Toys R Us is of seeing their Donkey Kong Country display for the first time and just standing there mouth agape; my tiny mind just couldn't comprehend that video games could look like that!

    It'll never happen for a variety of reasons, but I'd love to see them give Suikoden V a once over.
