Now it’s a party! In perhaps a blatant show of my gaming preferences and fan boy loyalty, I completed FFXV mere days after posting that Type – 0 review, and playing both games so close together got me thinking about an aspect of RPGs I had never considered: the actual size of an RPG’s party … Continue reading The Importance of Party Size: mechanics and versatility vs. focus and intimacy in an RPG.
(Or The Final Fantasy Recipe) Halleluiah and praise the Nine Divines, progress has been made!
