The lack of E3 and whatnot doesn't bother me, honestly, I never cared for this type of stuff because I only play ROM hacks. lol
And even then, I dislike the big surface level mainstream industry and that type of stuff, it's just kinda too corny and soulless to me.

I sometimes get a little bit interested in a new thing coming out, but since I don't own any modern consoles, I just kinda fall out of it really quickly and go back to my world of weirdness.



Thinking about it, truth is, besides not being on a good state to afford all this new stuff, there's also the fact that with the exception of an indie game here and there, there's almost never anything that really really caters to my interests, most of what I like are considered outdated or are too niche, so new announcements tend to not excite me all that much.

Not that they can't ever excite me, I just find it really hard to imagine it happening. But there are a plenitude of things that could make me go nuts really quickly (and then suffer for not having a modern system!)

Speaking of that, lion mentioned Square Enix, and honestly, that's a perfect opportunity for me to talk about this, because I have no idea where else I would say it... So... there are plenty of games that look like Akira Toriyama's artwork, some even do the fake 2D thing really well, so is there any game out there that looks like Yoshitaka Amano's artwork?

I mean, Final Fantasy strayed far away from that with the jump to 3D, but there must be a game somewhere that has that style now, right? If not, there should be. I mean, c'mon, it would be absolutely beautiful! I'd buy 5 copies of that! (Maybe)


I swear I need to learn how to communicate without writing a fucking article every time

Doing a quick Google search, it turns out that he was involved in Child of Light as an illustrator. I don't know how much of his work actually went into the final game, but I do think the game's art style somewhat resembles his signature character art.

Doubt there are games fully in that art style, though. It seems like an art style that would be tricky to make a full game in. It seems more suitable for art work. I'd happily be proven wrong about that by a game developer, though. Always love seeing unique, experimental games.

Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!

It's generally great, old games are usually on a good price unless they're some super rare stuff (Radiant Silvergun, the DC and GC versions of Ikaruga, super limited editions, etc.) or if it's a game that's too old or from another region and even then, you might get lucky enough to find them in a less expensive auction (I mean, it happens, rarely, but it does).

Stuff for the 16-bit and 8-bit systems may vary in price here and there and can be more expensive compared to the games for 32-bit consoles and onward.

For the Saturn, a lot of stuff I see is pretty cheap, or at least on-par or slightly less expensive than a game on a modern system if bought brand new.

Using Switch physical games as an example:
On Nintendo's official website Kirby Star Allies, Splatoon 2 and Mario Tennis Aces are at 6,578. Fire Emblem Warriors is at 8,580 and Xenoblade 2 is at 8,778.

A lot of good Saturn titles tend to go for about 2,000 or so, meaning with the price of Kirby, Splatoon 2 or Mario Tennis you could buy 3 Saturn games. And if were to buy these 3 Switch games, with the same money amount you could easily buy one of the more expensive titles (including, surprisingly enough, a copy of Radiant Silvergun, it has some stuff missing, but the game and the cover art is there, which is all that I personally want anyway, a complete copy goes for way more though).


With the same amount of money you'd use to buy Fire Emblem or Xenoblade 2, you could buy a bunch of games too, or one of the more expensive games (in fact, certain games are just about the same price, not being ridiculously expensive, but still not exactly cheap).

However, being fair to the Switch, there are indeed some games on it that you can buy physically that are pretty cheap.
Those being Puyo Puyo Tetris at 3,893, Okami at 3,046, Super Bomberman R at 3,035 and Undertale at 1,620.

But these are a minority, and even then, there's a lot of Saturn stuff that goes crazy cheap, especially if it's something like a Visual Novel, illustration disc (basically a gallery thing with artwork of a particular series, sounds silly, but this was before Internet was widely available for everyone), quiz games, FMV based games and so on.
But even regular games can go at crazy cheap prices if they're not rare or anything. Sure, it generally means they have a little scratch on the box or something similar, but it's not anything that affects the game (if the game is affected, it will be labeled as "junk" and means the seller doesn't know if the thing works well or not).
Also, the seller always shows pictures of the state of the things, and if there's a scratch on the box or anything, you can clearly see before buying. (Here I found Fighters Megamix and Lunar Silver Star Story for measly 280 yen and also Puyo Puyo 2 for 380).

There are quite a good amount of stuff under 1,000. Of course, it's not gonna be in mint condition, but it's never anything extreme (otherwise it will be under the "junk" category).

I'm just mentioning these to showcase the versatility of prices when compared to a modern console, in that there are indeed a good amount of cheap physical games here and there, but they're the minority, while for an old console, the expensive stuff is the minority.

Of course games for modern consoles aren't too expensive, but I mean, it's usually a little bit too much than I'm comfortable with spending in general, as while I could buy this stuff if I save a lot, it's a bit problematic, since I don't have a real job, I only got to work in part-time jobs here and there very temporarily, so I try to really prioritize what I'll buy and at some point I just came to accept that the Switch and the standard price for its games are a bit too high for what I can afford regularly at the moment.

Put that with the fact that I'm more excited over old and/or niche games like I've mentioned before and it leads to all of this.

I was thinking something like one of those indie games that are very visually impressive, I know there are plenty of games that just digitize hand-drawn artwork for sprites and whatnot, and it tends to look really good. Cuphead is one of the most modern examples, but there's also Wario Land on the Wii. Of course, those very less painterly artstyles, but in general, I think his artwork would go well over something like a 2D turn-based RPG.

If you look at the more detailed sprites from big bosses from old Square RPGs like the earlier Final Fantasy and SaGa games, it almost looks like you're fighting a pixel-art rendition of a renaissance painting.

I think it would be more or less like that, but with the full resolution of the original artwork. I imagine this would be a pain to animate, so it's why I can only believe this would work sensibly if it was turn-based with limited animation.

UPDATE
A few more companies and publishers have joined the Summer of Gaming event (see the updated first post!), including CD Projekt Red showing us to the world of Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most higly-anticipated games for this year. Keep your (robo-)fingers crossed! Oh, and didn't we notice that you can customize your genitalia in Cyberpunk 2077, too?

Microsoft's Xbox division is joining the Summer of Gaming wagon with their very own event, Xbox 20/20! They'll be giving us the deets about the Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Pass and more. No word if June's installment is announced, yet.

A digital-only version of EA Play, EA's very own gaming event, is in its midst, taking place on June 11. On the other hand, the Guerilla Collective, an event that showcases indie games, will be also taking place on June 6 to 8.

Other additions to the Summer of Gaming event include Blizzard, Ubisoft, Humble, Facebook (including Oculus) and the PC Gaming Show.
