Topic: Off-topic / Who else actually likes grinding on games?

If the game is good enough, and has enough of a varied system to make normal day-to-day actions entertaining, then it can be workable.

Take The World Ends With You. I was more or less okay with grinding out stat points in that game due to how easy the game /makes/ it(The game lets you do up to…either 12 or 16, I can’t remember which, battles in a row once you hit postgame), and combat’s actually REALLY FUN once you understand how to do it. So I’m actively okay with grinding, at least once you get the tools to support it.

An okay example is a game like The Legend Of Heroes: Trails in The Sky. (I can’t say anything for SC yet, but at least in FC it was this.) While grinding wasn’t exactly fun, it was fairly quick. Grind out CP for Breaks(by just hitting random foes over and over and or standing there and taking very little damage), find the nearest Shining Pom, and unload. It wasn’t exactly /fun/, but again, combat’s interesting enough that it’s at least tolerable.

Another okay example is Final Fantasy 8, where even if grinding gets mindless and repetitive, at least you have options. You can either find a monster with the spells you need to draw, or you can find someone with the right card to refine and play Triple Triad over and over. Both work. And besides, who wouldn’t be okay with grinding out spells with this playing?

The last example I have to bring up is…unfortunately how /not/ to do grinding, and that’s most other Final Fantasy games(well, at least 1-6, I can’t say anything about the others). Unfortunately, grinding is, other than a few gimmicks, fairly mindless and repetitive. There isn’t much good about it…although in my opinion a game where you need to grind in the first place has poor balance anyway. Postgame excluded, of course.

Topic: General Gaming / Which video game genre do you consider yourself to be best at?

The issue is I’m not particularly /good/ at any of them, I just get lucky. ._. Let’s see…awful at Rhythm, Fighting, Beat-em-ups…I’m okay at jRPGs, if that counts as a different genre, bad at tRPGs…haven’t played enough western RPGs to know for sure…really really bad at shooters…I guess I’m best at Platformers, even though I’ve never had the patience for Super Meat Boy or any of the IWBTG ripoffs, so…in a relative sense, I’m best at Platformers, but I’m probably near the bottom in terms of skill level anyway.

I don’t think I’m going to do this.
Now, if there’s a Kong Minus Minus coming, then maybe I’ll give it a shot. We need a net loss for those of us who already have Kong Plus, people!

Maybe! I’m sure there’s some reason you chose your username that makes it special, and I just don’t know it.

Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Minecraft, and TES 5: Skyrim. Yes, I’m calling out the series I based my username on. It’s good, but not THAT good.
EDIT: Mega Man 2 as well.

Sadly, no. There have already been discussions about how that’s unfair for people, because a shiny is so much harder to get than a normal one.

Topic: Kongregate / Room Name And Owner History

A former room owner for the deleted room owner was Spes, not Spas. And for some reason the name Kakariko Village never made it into Wolf Pack‘s former names. :\ that’s all I’ve noticed.
EDIT: Oh, and VforVendetta being a former RO of Wolf Pack, but I don’t remember his duration.

I would be lying if I didn’t get some amount of twisted enjoyment from the games you picked for Best of 2015…even if it did include Decision 3…and 4 point and click adventures…and Bullet Heaven 2, which I swear is my arch-nemesis…but I admittedly did have fun. Somewhat.
