I remember the spells that I cast in Kingdom Hearts 2 would actually hit things every now and then, so I'd have to agree it's better.

Some abilities and spells are just flat-out better, resistances be damned. Aerial combat is pretty yuck and clunky but outside of that it's just some balances changes to smooth the edges.

I don't get this at all. Combat in FF7R was bad. Real bad. I hated it the whole way through, especially the awful magic that missed half the time. If I ever played through it again I would set the combat difficulty to the absolute lowest so I just don't have to think about it.

I hate combat in games like FF7R or Kingdom Hearts where you smack enemies around with a sword that acts like it's made of foam and appears to weigh two pounds.

Oh wow, that's a lot of bad games then. On the list of good games that have swords that're sharp there's The Wonderful 101, Metal Gear Rising, some Star Wars games, No More Heroes...

Astoundingly you can even make a game where enemies take more than one hit and it doesn't feel like you're knocking around a beach ball with a wiffle bat.

Well I was just thinking of enemies that actually get cut so Dark Souls where bosses have giant health bars and never show any signs of physical damage never really occured to me. Likewise with Assassin's Creed where you'd stab someone in the neck and they'd get right back up because that only took out half of their health. It's kinda the same reason I didn't mention Devil May Cry or Zelda, so we're going by completely different criteria on this.

A friend of mine back in high school was obsessed with Advent Children and made us all watch it with him at his birthday party. Having never played FF7 it was even more completely incomprehensible to me, and for the life of me I do not remember a single plot point or even line of dialogue from it. I remember motorcycles, somebody dropping a cellphone I think? That's about it. I do clearly remember checking my watch a lot.

The soundtrack was dope, that was pretty much it.

I started playing through the 2013 HD Edition just last week after having it sit on my backlog for years, but this video convinced me to pick up the Definitive Edition whenever it goes on sale. I'll probably even play the whole campaign again just to see for myself how well done the updated AI is, assuming I'm not already burned out with the single player by then.

Anyone here know if AoE 1 is worth trying out these days? Also, wasn't there also a Star Wars RTS that used the same engine?

I remember someone once said being "internet famous" has all the downsides of hollywood fame but none of the upsides. Like you get stalkers and people acting like creeps preventing you from living a normal life. But you dont get like, a mansion or a million dollar car or anything like that.

Bennett has been having a very rough time recently. I'm glad to hear he's not cancelling the show, but I don't think anyone would blame him for taking some time off given the poo poo that's happened.

His talk of writing a novel has me curious, although I guess it'll be a while before we hear anything more about that. I've been writing one of the past couple of years and it's only now getting close to being finished. Although, I guess compared to working on a youtube show for thirteen years (!) it probably feels like a cakewalk.

I think with Spoony it wasn't people doing it out of malice but fans that actually wanted to meet him. Spoony was in the right though not wanting them to come to his house, really you shouldn't try and personally go to a person's house who you don't know of already and wasn't told where they lived. I'd be weirded out if any of my coworkers showed up to my house uninvited.

The Rooster Teeth incident involved Gavin Free,

quote:

Free has been in a relationship with Meg Turney since 2013. On 26 January 2018, an armed fan broke into the couple's Austin home armed with a handgun, firing one shot while the two hid in a closet and contacted authorities. The suspect was confronted by police in the driveway and after an exchange of gunfire was killed by one of the officers. The gunman, an obsessed fan of Turney's, had driven 11 hours from Albuquerque, New Mexico to the couple's home. He was reportedly resentful of Free's fame and relationship.
