Anyone have any experience using RPG Maker? How is it?

I am only now getting started with it after buying the "VX Ace" version last year. I have only messed around with editing existing projects so far, but it is pretty easy to fumble through. I have only ever used editors for existing games, I have never used a game creator type of program, so this is all new stuff for me.

I had two reasons for buying it. The community is HUGE. There is a tremendous amount of community created content available for use in projects. Not being a particularly talented artist this was a big bonus for me. There are a great many tutorial videos available on Youtube that are made by community members and aimed at complete rookies. VERY helpful but if you are a quick study you will be fst-forwarding quite a bit.

The other great feature is that it can publish to multiple platforms. I want to make a game for my two youngest nephews, but if my other nephews and nieces want to play it I can push it to whatever they want to play it on. (well, not "whatever"..but you get my meaning) *It should be noted that you don't have to pay a licensing fee should you decide to publish your game, regardless of platform.

I bought "Hero's Tale Enhanced Edition" from ShinyLoot today (for Windows) for $1.00 from their Christmas sale. It is an excellent example of what RPG Maker can do from a technical stand point, even if the story itself is a bit vanilla. Might not be a bad thing to check out if you are thinking of making your own game.

I know I would be much more optimistic about this game if it wasn't called Thief. That said, I felt the same way leading up to the release of the Syndicate redo and look how that turned out.

I am on hold until they add in ATI/AMD support for gfx. Looking forward to giving it a spin on my old Linux box though. Not really sure why, but the whole project just sounds fun to play around with. Reminds me of an earlier time in this hobby....

The rumors of a yearly iteration involving another internal EA studio just make my shake my head.

I thought EA told their stockholders at the last meeting that their release schedule for 2014 did not have a BF game for console or PC, just DLC packs. There are rumors claiming that isn't true or am I misunderstanding what you're saying?

There are rumors based on LinkedIn postings and other stuff that Visceral (I think?) is gearing up to do yearly offshoots with Dice. I really don't want yearly Battlefield iterations for obvious reasons, they can barely release a playable game every 2 years.

I see. Yeah, that isn't so great to hear.

The console version of Diablo 3 is actually quite good. In fact I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the PC version. They made a lot of good UI changes, the underlying loot system improvements are huge and they actually improved the difficulty in a few areas. Plus I'm a sucker for same screen co-op games, they are too few and far between these days.

Same. I don't like aspects of the gear UI, but in general I found the PS3 demo to be a lot of fun. Particularly in co-op. Kinda like one of the Lego games in that way.

Just out of curiosity, why the Borderlands hate? Admittedly I didn't buy BL1 until a couple months ago, but I thought the writing and voice acting in BL2 was hillarious....

I think it is less "hate" and more "burned out". I don't know of a lot of people who find shooters or ARPGs fun that didn't like Borderlands, but I do know of MANY people that have played enough of both games to be done with them for some time. I personally can't even be bothered to read the description of the last 2 DLC releases let alone buy them....and I loved BL2.

That said, I think this TT game is a different animal altogether and will be jumping on it. Same setting maybe, but totally different game mechanics. Combine that with TT's history of great storytelling and I am sold.

Making up ground late in the season is always tough because at this point we all know what each team is capable of. We are all picking the same teams. You have to hope that you pick the right side on the 3 or 4 games that realistically could go either way.

I know people are going to jump down my throat, but I have to admit....I just had this vision in my head of a Star Wars game that is this hybrid of GTA 5 and Guild Wars 2....and I liked it.

Kotaku is reporting that EA is working on a new Star Wars open world game. Since "open world" is about as misused a term as "RPG" these days...I suppose that could mean anything.

Grand Theft Bounty Hunter/Rebel, please!


I love the concept, I am not sure I want EA making it that's all. It is supposedly headed by EA Canada, so I guess they have that going for them.

Is it me having rose-tinted memory glasses...or was this not always the case with consoles? My original XBox worked great, still does, and I don't remember any major issues with the brand at launch. I don't remember any console other than my classic Nintendo having "out of the box" problems before this past generation. Maybe I just got lucky.

..and yes..you have a fair point regarding Gamestop and who I was talking to. At this point, every employee in that store sounded like they just hate all consoles and people wanting them. Not sure I blame them.

Apparently my belief that folks here would actually want to talk about this stuff was wrong. My bad. Forget I said anything. To me, this is the kind of thing that changes my position regarding when to buy...and both consoles seem to be suffering from bumps in the launch road. I'll keep it to myself next time.

OR if you prefer...

Dratz! My super secret plan to unnecessarily smear the prestine reputation of the glorious XBONE has been discovered! I have been planning this for years...and the dastardly Half Elf has discovered me! I will get my revenge! *escapes in a cloud of smoke*
