Currently building up CS3 hype. Can't wait.
Awesome. I will for sure check that out. Thanks for the rec.Also check out DQ: Legacy of the Lost when you have time.
Its a complete fangame inspired by DQ VII that uses the GBC sprites and tilesets. Played about twenty hours and its pretty good.
In my opinion? A lot of grinding and if you want to do everything, you'll be backtracking. I beat it and I didn't hate it, but a recommendation to buy is something that I can't give. (Citizens of Earth).
I've only played Citizens of Earth, and the high concept is great, but I can't emphasize enough that your mileage will vary on the writing and the aesthetic. Honestly the humor didn't really land for me and something was always "off" about how the game felt.I liked the idea of recruiting a whole bunch of party members, each with distinctly different abilities, but I also barely unlocked any before I got burned out. I would definitely try watching some gameplay to see if it's your cup of tea before committing to a purchase.
Getting a head start is a good idea and can also relieve some pressure near the end when you’re like 10 hours away with two days left. I also try to place longer games by themselves and surround them with shorter sub-40hr games.As we approach the midpoint of October and I start wrapping up my mini-blitz games, my thoughts turn to the upcoming blitz starting next month.
I’m really torn between starting some things I’ve wanted to play for a while (like the Yakuza series and Oath in Felghana) and picking some really long games that will probably take me the whole time to finish (Xenoblade Chronicles 2 or Witcher 3 fall into this category). So many games, so little time.
I tend to do the same. I like to have one big headliner plus 4 shorter/already-in-progress games. For the upcoming season I've got Final Fantasy VIII penciled in as the core game so now I'm left to decide what the four support entries will be.Getting a head start is a good idea and can also relieve some pressure near the end when you’re like 10 hours away with two days left.

I’m still piecing together my list but I have a vague idea.
I'm actually gonna be playing the PS1 version on Vita/PS3, since I'm a bit of a purist lol. Ahhh I'm looking forward to diving into it and sharing my thoughts with everyone. I did play through the opening section recently to whet my appetite for November and i liked it a lot.
Oh good! The junction system can be a little obtuse but it’s pretty simple! If you have any questions, let us know. Certainly play however you like though, some people tend to tell new players to play in a particular way best meanf for replays.I'm actually gonna be playing the PS1 version on Vita/PS3, since I'm a bit of a purist lol.

You pick five RPGs to play over a three month span. Every time you complete one you report it, and after the three months every completion gets you an entry in a raffle. There are typically three prizes and often some bonus stuff too.
Cool. I'll think up 5 games in a day or two.
This is a good point, we should probably get a post of the rules in their current form and then I can threadmark it for reference.
Where do I find out more about this and the past prizes and stuff? Sounds fun!
For the general rules/idea -
Thanks for the info!For Season 4 of RPG Blitz, we're working on this seasons RPG Club theme. Please feel free to vote on up to 3 of the themes in the list here.
For this month, rather than having a 6th option that counts as another entry, we'll make it so that you can opt-in to make one of your entries follow the theme and get a bonus entry upon completion (thus making it worth 2). We'll leave the preliminary voting up until tomorrow night and finalize the theme(s) on the 30th or 31st.
Additionally, the preliminary sheet is up if you want to throw your name and picks on there a little early. Don't worry about user order as we'll alphabetize it later. We're still finalizing a couple rules as well, but there won't be a drastic change or anything.

For the discord -
replays are fine in general, just don't abuse them for an entry in the raffles i guess (doing replays for speedplays)
you mean Trespasser? While that one is very important to make DA:I feel worthwhile people don't mention The Descent enough for its huge lor eimplications, it drops bombs on the same level as Trespasser does. It also is where the combat difficulty shines very well with the enemies.
Trespasser, yeah. I'm not particularly up-to-date with my Dragon Age lore so I doubt I'd appreciate lore bombs that much, but I suppose I could check out the other DLC too cause why not.you mean Trespasser?

Jaws of Hakkon also is fun imo, where they applied all complaints towards the base game's map design and created the best map in game as a result.
Nope, you can start with any progress. We've had people pickup games they dropped a while back with a couple hours left and push through to the end.
Isn't this because of his stamina?I'm going through Witcher 3 right now, and as someone who thought 1 was ok and 2 was great, this feels like a more polished version of 2. I'm already seeing deck ideas for Gwent.
I have one question about the combat. Geralt periodically slows to a crawl after I cast a sign or roll, is this normal? This wasn't the case in 2.
2 questions. If I want to participate, I need to pick at least 1 game from this list? Like, I want to get to Tales of Vesperia anyway, I just wanted to make sure thats how it worked.
Season 4 begins!
If you'd like to join us, please feel free to fill in your name on the sheet.
Each season, we've loosened the rules a bit and adjusted things depending on feedback or just trends we've seen. Throughout season 3 we noticed more people leaving their lists with blank entries and being unable to decide what to put. Additionally, we had more requests for swaps (especially as the realization that some 80+ hour games suck up a lot of time), so we're loosening up.
Last season, we had an optional 6th game that followed the theme of member favorites. Each member listed their favorite game and people chose from that pool as their sixth game for a bonus point.
- Swaps are allowed, as are late additions. Just make a note or ask myself or anyone else involved in running this.
- Games released prior to blitz are eligible, as usual, but there is a two week grace period. Games released in the first two weeks of November (up to Nov 15th) will be eligible.
- RPG Club Theme returns! If you have no idea what the RPG Club was, just search "RPG Club Plays" on era and you'll see the group playthrough threads.
With only 6 of these being finished (and a couple people finishing ALL 6), we realized that's a lot of extra time to put in just for a bonus.
So, much like the 6th game was optional, we're keeping the list at 5 games but you have the option to make one of your 5 follow the RPG Club Theme. Completing it will grant you a bonus entry into the raffle at the end.

You don't have to pick one of these games, but it counts as 2 raffle entry at the end of the blitz if you finish it.
I changed it up a bit. I won't participate in the RPG Club vcategory, because I have beaten all the games that I want from that list. I also removed Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones as I beat it today. I put Ys VIII, that I started today. My goal is to complete 3/5 games, but it won't be easy.
