    @daneian: They patched out most of the major issues. You have to go through a semi-lengthy install and the graphics are still slightly inferior to the 360 version, but I never ran into any serious pr...

  • Jesna posted a message in the forum topic Best Infinity Engine game to break into?. on the Infinity Engine board

    I'd recommend either Baldur's Gate 1 with the BGtutu mod (which places the first game in the second game's engine), or, if you don't feel like taking the time to mod the first game, just jump into BG ...

    @viciousbearmauling: Yeah, she shuts down Kanji pretty hard, but her health just evaporates whenever she gets touched. People seem to be more positive about Kanji this time around, so maybe you can e...

  • Jesna posted a message in the forum topic How do you feel about your rebalanced character so far?. on the Persona 4: Arena Ultimax board

    It took me a while to get used to the changes, but I really love the way Teddie plays now. His new awakening super is a sorely needed reversal, and the corner carry on his 5AAA makes up a bit for his ...

    Watching that video reminded me of how great the sound design was in Banjo Kazooie, it has really satisfying noises whenever you collect something. Easily one of my favorite 3D platformers (a genre I...

  • Jesna posted a message in the forum topic Deep Look: Final Fantasy 9- World Map Secrets. on the Final Fantasy IX board

    Neat video! I have very distinct memories of playing Chocobo Hot and Cold for hours when you first leave Lindblum, which in retrospect was a bit irresponsible of Zidane.Have you ever played the Wild A...

  • Jesna posted a message in the forum topic The Problem With Relationship Systems in Games. on the General Discussion board

    @zeik: I still disagree, although I see your point. Even though P4 had options for just staying friends, I would still need to play through the game 7 times to see both sides of each S-link. As it is ...

  • Jesna posted a message in the forum topic The Problem With Relationship Systems in Games. on the General Discussion board

    Evidently I'm in the minority here, but I feel like point 1 is actually a benefit to me as a player. I understand that it breaks the immersion for some people that Persona 4's MC or Shepard can become...

  • Jesna posted a message in the forum topic It’s Scary Out There for Game Critics. on the General Discussion board

    To be honest, I think the dire circumstances surrounding games criticism are completely self-inflicted. The actual work put forth by most of these "critics" seems to be mostly opinion pieces on how a...
