@liquiddragon:

Thanks for reading.

I do like Suda - in fact I intend to play through NMH 1 and 2 some time this year - tbh I prefer his work on the Silver Case to most stuff. Until you reminded me I had completely forgotten Suda had anything to do with this. There's nothing to indicate that he did - bar perhaps the shift away from the the weirder themes in the first three games.

Do take a look at the game, but keep in mind that there's a game breaking bug relatively early on. You can work your way around it but you'd need to look up how to online.

I play and watch almost everything with subtitles on - so yes. I hate not being able to read in games.

I also like playing games with a variety of different spoken languages - AssCreed 2 is the key example of this.

That being said - I don't think I've ever been 'immersed' while playing a video game - I'm always conscious of the fact I'm playing a game. Hence game systems intruding on the 'world' don't bother me in the slightest.

I too am worried about Rice cakes...I also need to buy Furi on my Xbone.

@mitchuation: You think Fallout 3/NV apocalyptic wasteland #34544 is more interesting than the first game of the modern era set in Hong Kong? Fair enough I'll see you out with some cookies.

@ohagan: Something old, something new, something borrowed from Run the Jewels and something very Korean.

@aetos:

You should, it's a fun game though the plot is so thin I can barely remember it beyond cultists or something.

@tbk: Add Odin Sphere, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Gundam Breaker 3 and World of Final Fantasy to the 'haven't played enough but should have' pile.

Freespace is there, you just need to read the subtext.

I don't think it's actually supposed to be realistic but evocative of the teen movies from the 80s - hence the weird speech patterns. I can understand how that could throw people off though.

@matatat: But everyone is like that, especially teenagers. Though to be honest teenagers generally don't talk like they do in films and games, especially when it's written by a French studio. It's a hyper realised version of my age group's (30+) memories of high school mixed with a good dose of John Hughes movies. At least that's how I see it and that worked for me and most of my friends who played it - and to be fair some really nasty stuff happens in the game. Episode 4 gets really dark.

@dudeglove:

Oh please, you know I don't have that level of imagination...They need to stop with all these release versions. It makes Capcom look positively benign.

@grandcurator: No Jubei = riot.
