Or you know…you could recommend they switch to classic graphics when playing the SE. =P

SE Guybrush is an abomination that thankfully can be ignored with a button press.

SE Guybrush is an abomination that thankfully can be ignored with a button press.

All of the graphics in the SE are horrendous. All of the intricate detail created by the pixel art (including some very disturbing background imagery) is replaced with awful smeary digital paint crap that has zero fine detail.

THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.

If I recall correctly, the SE version doesn’t allow you to switch to Classic Mode during the intro sequence. The VGA CD intro is better.

I do really love SOMI. In fact, I’ve played every available PC version of it (EGA, VGA, VGA CD, SE). I do like COMI better though, and I don’t have to explain when I recommend it why you should play the not-dicked-with version.

Are the Kingdom Hearts games worth playing? I can remember playing Kingdom Hearts 2 at a friend’s place over a decade ago but never being able to get into it.

I’m Mr. Know-It-All.
Here’s a clue… Grab the spinning rings. It’s important. As long as you’ve got the rings, you’ll be okay, even if
you hit any hazards. Now you know.

Oh, and don’t worry if the
view suddenly changes. It does that sometimes. Just keep moving in the direction you want. It may take a little time to get used to it, so keep trying.

I would say so. I’ve played KH 1 and 2 twice each. Chain of Memories has a card-battle system, so it’s not as good. Can’t say much about the other games, although I believe I heard in a review that Birth by Sleep is good.

If you’re going to play Kingdom Hearts II, you should play KH1 first. The story and characters don’t make as much sense in 2 if you don’t play 1.

I held strong and didn’t buy anything this year. Too many unplayed games in my library to justify further purchases.

No.

Second. Too many games which are unplayed and don’t need to buy more.

I loved the similar looking sit-down Star Wars arcade cabinet as a kid, and was tempted to build something similar (likely adapted with pc setup for a lot more games) not long ago, yet saw some of the prices involved… eeek!

 

Am likely going to settle for something like this…

Pandora Box 5 (or wait for the new model control system coming soon)

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I had that happen once. I only ever bought and owned one physical copy of Jedi Outcast and yet one day I found a second box in my closet!

Years and years ago I had some game disc that got super scratched up so I asked for a new one for Christmas, which I got, except they put the scratched disc in the new box and tossed it out while putting the new disc in the old box (I could tell because of dog bitemarks on one corner) so they could tell me Santa fixed it with magic.

How do you feel about Origin? Is it awesome? Is it good? Is it bad? Is it trash?

I don’t believe you. Your parents were ok promulgating Santa and Magic?

Especially when knowing what “Santa” is an anagram of.

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.

“A ants” is not proper. It should be “An ants.”

As a service, it is better than it used to be but it is still inferior to Steam. Also, it’s annoying when a game bought on Steam requires Origin running to play the game.
