Velkom, comrades!

I am pleased to announce the launch of our very own RPGfan Community Quiz (Quiz Show)! Let me drop some deets on you.


What?: This is an RPG trivia competition held by moi with our very own forum members as participants. How well do you really know your favorite RPG, can you prove it? If you can, there is a prize in it for you!

When?: June 1st 2013 at 21:00 BST. To save you the timezone & daylights savings time headache I had to go through to understand when that is, here is a handy dandy Countdown Clock (http://tinyurl.com/qbrl98q)! I will also be sending out reminders on the day of the quiz for those of you who show interest!

The quiz will be held bi-monthly. That's twice a month.

Where?: In an IRC Chatroom! No, wait, come back! It's easier than it looks and I'll be giving out easy to understand instructions for first time users. For most it will be a case of going to The Mibbit Website (http://www.mibbit.com), hitting the "Sign Up Free" button, creating an account and joining the channel #RPGfanCommunityQuiz!

                                                            (http://i481.photobucket.com/albums/rr174/Starmongoose/RPGfanComQuiz/Mibbitinstructions_zps6cca527f.jpg)

For more experienced IRC users who have clients: Server: irc.mibbit.net Port: 6667 Channel: #RPGfanCommunityQuiz

How?: The rules of the game are as follows:

Participation:
1.) You must have at least 30 posts on the forum. It's not a hard target to meet!
2.) You must use the same Nickname/Username you use on the forums. It's just easier on everyone if we know instantly who is who.

Game Information:
1.) Each quiz will center around one game or franchise. A single game in a franchise will be the most common, a quiz about an entire franchise will generally be reserved for simpler or episodic games.
2.) The topic of each quiz will be determined by you guys. Boast about RPGs you are confident about in this thread and if it is popular enough, that will be our subject. In the case of a split, I will decide.
3.) There will be 10 questions in total.
3a.) Questions 1-3 are Easy questions. They are worth 1 point each.
3b.) Questions 4-7 are Medium questions. They are worth 2 points max each.
3c.) Questions 8-10 will be Hard questions. They will be worth 3 points max each.
3d.) There will be ONE Picture and ONE Music round. The Picture round will involve looking at a picture and answering a question about said picture. For the Music round I will host a 30 second audio sample on a nondescript Youtube channel and ask a question relating to the music in question. These rounds yeild points equal to the level of difficulty they are in. eg. If the Picture round is "Question 4" it will be worth 2 points max.
4. The person with the most points is declared the winner! In the case of a tie, there will be a tie-breaker question. This will be first-to-answer. If no one answers within the time limit, I will ask another question. Tie-breakers begin on Hard and gradually lower to Easy.

Da Rules:
1.) All answers must be sent to me privately. If you say the answer in the main chat for everyone to see, you will get a 3 point penalty. If you repeatedly do it, I will kick you from the room. The only exception to this is a tie-breaker, where your answer must be said in the main chat.
2.)There is a 45 second time limit to all questions. This is to discourage Googling the answer. The questions themselves will be worded so that an answer isn't easily obtained by copy/paste, but you either know it or you don't. 45 seconds is still plenty of time to have a think and then type an answer.
3.) I am not going to be harsh on spelling/grammar. If you spell it wrongly but it is easy to see what you were trying to say, I will give you full points. The exceptions to this is if you type another POSSIBLE answer. For example if the question is "Who is the pilot of The Invincible before Kuja and the heroes acquire it in Final Fantasy 9?" and you answer Garnet, but meant Garland, I can't give you points because Garnet is the name of a character within the Final Fantasy 9 universe.

Here is the information for the next quiz:

I'll be happy to participate. Is there an official RSVP thing, or is it just whoever bothers to show up?
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on May 29, 2013, 09:07:22 PM
Your comment here is your RSVP. :)

I'll send everyone who comments here saying that they will be attending a private message the day of the quiz just with general reminders and tips.

Also, thanks for the support. It's scary putting yourself out there like this, and I've never had much of a constitution for public failure.

I like this idea.  But I'm a bit too rusty on that game to actually feel like I could participate. This time.  :)
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on May 29, 2013, 09:26:43 PM
That is fair enough. :)

It won't be University Challenge so people don't need to worry too much. I'm fully aware some people might not have played the game in quite a few years and besides the hard questions, you could probably recall them from distant memory.

If I recall about it, I'll probably join in.

I assume the server is mibbit's server and not lunarnet.org? (Unless you guys moved from Lunarnet and I just didn't realize it).

The Community Quiz is on the mibbit server (irc.mibbit.net), the Unofficial RPGfan Chatroom is still on lunarnet.org however!

For simplicity sake mostly. I've already been told that IRC has been a turn off for some people. Adding an extra step for the people who are just going to click the Mibbit link isn't something I wanted to do. Picking a name and picking a room is easier than finding a server, picking a name and then finding the room.

Considering I have it functioning on my phone, it shouldn't be a case of complexity. It's pretty simple to pull off.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on May 30, 2013, 09:04:07 AM
It's one of those things that isn't nearly as difficult as it looks, but still can be daunting for people.

We will see how it goes on Saturday, if you guys think not having it on lunarnet is hampering you in some way, I'll look into changing its location. It'll still need to be a separate channel though.

I would probably be there with you if I weren't the guy with the question cards. (Metaphorical question cards).

EDIT: I should mention that I will be popping in and out the IRC chat, if you happen to catch me in there feel free to ask me any questions you have about the night.

Never bothered with IRC before, seems like a good reason to give it a shot now and luckily I've got just over 30 posts. It's been a long time since I've played that game though it's a good one to pick, there's a ton of interesting hidden stuff in it.

I just remembered I already promised to help with some gardening on on Saturday. It's supposed to be over 90 degrees, though, so I'll be starting plenty early. The quiz is scheduled for 4pm here, so I will most likely still be able to make it, but if I'm not there that's why.

Is there some sort of scoreboard? I'd like to keep tabs on this but since I haven't played a JRPG to completion since the 90s.... I shant participate.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on May 31, 2013, 11:04:27 PM
If that's something everyone would be interested in I could make a scoreboard with the stats. Maybe something like Total Points/Games Played = Visible Score

I wouldn't want anyone to feel bad about having a low score though. I was intending on just keeping a Hall of Fame for the winners.

Trust me, almost everyone has messaged me at some point saying they are going to get a low score because they haven't played in years.

Y'all are such worrywarts.

Suggestions for the subject of the next quiz is now open. To get the ball rollin' here are some games already suggested:

I'm on board with any of those titles.  I'd also be down for anything involving Tales Of, Disgaea, Final Fantasy other than XI, XIII, or XIV, and Mario RPGs.  It's like those are my favorites or something.

Lunar Silver Star Story or Eternal Blue.

Lufia II would also be cool...though trivia for it is kinda hard.

Post by: Aeolus on June 01, 2013, 10:31:52 PM
I wouldn't mind seeing a Star Ocean game make it in next time. 2 seems popular but 4 is more recent and thus will be less likely to have people who've only played it 16 years ago or so.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Dice on June 02, 2013, 11:08:56 AM
Def agree with an SO (or just SO2?) one.

Tales too, it's celebrating it's 15th (overseas) anni! D:

999 would be pretty cool, but probably a tough quiz, but I'd love to see what Mongoosey can do with it (/pressure)

Okay, next quiz info right here!

Quiz #2
Date: 15th June 2013
Time: 21:00 BST (Countdown Clock Here! (http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20130615T21&p0=90&msg=RPGfan+Community+Quiz%21%21))
Subject: Persona 4 (Vanilla)
(http://i.imgur.com/uXTPN8T.jpg)
Prize: Steam game worth up to 20$
or
20$ Nintendo eShop card
or
20$ PSN card.

(Some prizes may be restricted due to where you live).

A few people mentioned it in the IRC on the night and also I know a lot of people here are big SMT fans, and Persona 4 is probably the most popular of them all.  Most of the games mentioned only got 1 or 2 votes, and that kind of left me with a bunch of suggestions rather than an all out winner. Which isn't bad, actually, since I can shape what the first few quizzes are going to be about before delving into the more niche stuff.

I hope I don't make the questions too hard, that would be unBEARable.
I've also updated the first page with the new info.

You want me to take time out of the FFXIV beta to do some silly trivia that I will probably bomb horribly a second time in a row?

Fine.

You weren't even last. You'll be fine!

And you have to play the FFXIV beta at the same time, cause I need people to teach me how to play an MMO and I've been thinking about getting XIV when it comes out.

Haha, well considering I have active characters in about 6 or 7 MMO's at the moment and obsessively give every new one a try, I could certainly give a few pointers :P

I was actually thinking of throwing myself in the ring for that MMO editor/contributor position you guys were advertising, but I haven't written a video game article in a long time and life is just crazy right now. But now I'm derailing the thread.

Maybe I'll do better on this quiz since I'm currently playing through Golden.

Being that 3 left the most disgusting of tastes in my mouth, never played 4. Doubt I could beat 4 in a week either, given I have 2 or 3 installs this week and Man of Steel AND The last of Us...

Cheer section it is.

Also, can we have some activity in the irc channel, even if it's the quiz channel? I enjoy babbling with you guys on a less formal medium.

@Agent: Sure! I'll keep myself logged in today and if anyone wants to come in I'll be there. (Providing I'm not absorbed in a game of Heroes of Might and Magic VI)

Anyone who is coming in on the night  who hasn't played the game yet but intends to at some point, just cover your eyes when I read out the answers. :P

And also thanks to Dice, for selling me her copy of Persona 4 last year.  Couldn't have done it without you.

That's okay Dice, nobody else who played this time did well either. Monsoon swept the competition up single-handedly.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Monsoon on June 16, 2013, 02:50:48 PM
I did really well this quiz, but it's 99% because of coincidence and recency (That last 1%? Talent.). I've played Persona 4 twice in the past six months, one normal run and one New Game Plus with max Social Links. Basically, I obsessed over Persona 4 for the first half of 2013, and then I found a trivia contest about it. This was extremely good luck on my part bordering on a fluke.  But hey, I got some PSN money out of it.  No complaints.

The tenth question was in the Hard category, so it was worth 3 points.  Starmongoose got yours right. 

However, I think he gave me too much credit.  I got 16 in the first game and 18 in the second game.  Averages out to 17, +2 games played equals 19 points.

Hey Starmongoose! Whacha trien to do? I gots 19 of dem points on da leadah' board (18 for all but the tenth question correct on the first game, plus 1 for the first game).

All of them right apart from question 10 = 17 points (20 - 3) plus 1 cause you have played 1 game = 18

Monsoon is right though, I gave him a point too many. It doesn't change the positions any so I'm going to leave it until the results of the next quiz are in.


EDIT: Okay, I looked at what happened. It seems I gave one of Klutz64's points to Monsoon. Sorry, Klutz64! I also short changed Kevadu a point. Sorry Kedvadu. It still doesn't change anything, all positions stay the same. Here is the updated leaderbord anyway.

Yerp. Total points over all games, divided by how many games you have played + number of games you have played.

I have every other weekend off, so it seems the stars are misaligned.

I'm kinda in the same situation, so the next quiz will be in 3 weeks so I can get back to the original fortnightly schedule.

The next quiz will be Tokitowa - Time and Eternity...



lol no.

I don't know yet, I'll probably announce it next week. Researching to see if the Zelda answers were correct and not debatable was a nightmare I don't wanna have to go through again, so it will probably be a game I have actually played.

If you ever need some assistance, I'd be happy to do some question research for a game for you. Least I can do to repay the efforts you put forth with this.

I actually had my boyfriend make up the questions, since he's a Zelda fan. So I was mostly just double checking.

If one of you guys helped make the questions obviously you couldn't take part in that quiz, so I'll try to avoid that as much as I can.

Only true for Nocturne!  Vesperia was five years ago and DQ VIII was eight years ago.  And if you go by the Western release of Nocturne, it's only been eight years.  And come on.  You suggested Breath of Fire III. 

I'd take part in OR co-write a Pokemon Red/Blue quiz.  Happily.

Pfft, fuck all that shit. You lost to brock 20 times to level charmander up into charmeleon and wreck shit with flamethrower like a man.

It was more entertaining when I did the same thing to misty later. Nothing like a level 40 charizard vs a level 20ish Starmie. Really puts things into perspective.

Sure early on Bulbasaur makes dealing with everything up to Rock Tunnel a lot less annoying but you're giving up the best non legendary Fire type in the game (and is probably better than Moltres too) and Squirtle's Water Gun has far more uses on it over Bulbasaur's Vine Whip making it far more useful in Mt. Moon/Rock Tunnel.

Also Geodude, Onix, and Sandshrew are terrible against Lt.Serge himself as he likes to play like Guile and Sonic Boom everything in sight for fixed 20HP of damage. Which is inconveniently located at the one part of the game where fixed 20HP worth of damage is still potent (there's a good chance some of your guys are getting two shotted by Sonic Boom spam and higher defense pokes like Geodude and Onix tend to have less HP to make up for it).

Also also, Eggsecute and Eggscuator (or whatever the hell they're names are) are both Grass/Psychic. And also for Erika, why aren't you sporting Dugtrio? You can just grab one from Digletts' Cave and wreck everything forever with Dig, Slash, and eventually Earthquake.

The only Pokemon game I played is Yellow.

I didn't even try that hard to choose which pokemon I wanted; I mostly stuck with the stuff I caught at the beginning.
I think my final team was:
- Raichu (you start with a Pikachu)
- Pidgeot
- Ratticate
- Butterfree
- Dugtrio (for dig)
- Scyther (for cut)
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Klutz64 on August 05, 2013, 10:03:31 AM
My final team I think was:

- Venusaur
- Ninetails
- Sandslash
- Articuno
- Fearow
- Starmie
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Monsoon on August 05, 2013, 10:44:03 AM
Starters:
Jolteon
Alakazam
Rhydon
Starmie
Tauros
MOTHER****ING SNORLAX WHAT

Bench:
Dragonite
Venusaur
Hitmonlee

EDIT: I should mention that this was the most recent time I played R/B.  My first time I'm pretty sure it was mostly Venusaur, Zapdos, Snorlax, and Starmie.  Whatever.  TL;DR Snorlax and Starmie are the best.

I would object to Charizard being the best non-legendary fire mon. Arcanine is far and away superior - both in terms of typing and in terms of stats. But this hinges on what version you're playing.

Exeggutor has the advantage in Special attack over Venusaur but its low speed and defenses make it easily demolished. Also, the Bulbasaur line is the only halfway decent line that can learn useful support abilities like sleep powder or stun spore - most other mons that can either have bad typing (Venomoth, Butterfree) or bad stats (Vileplume, Victreebel).

I used to spend all my money at Cerulean City and then abuse the exp from Misty's Staryu by using only my Pikachu and defeating Staryu, leveling like crazy, then letting Starmie waste Pikachu, letting me start the process over without any penalties. A high level Bulbasaur/Pikachu-line duo handily took care of everything up until the Elite Four.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Darilon on August 05, 2013, 12:48:38 PM
First time I played Red Version my final team was
Charizard
HM Slaves

Later playthroughs it became
Charizard
Pidgeot
Vileplume
Butterfree
Ratticate
Gyarados

Not the best team but I had a lot of fun with them.

Anyone else remember how ridiculously overpowered sand attack was? You get hit with that and you were lucky to hit the enemy once every four attacks.

...I won't be participating in the next quiz, because I'm writing it instead!  StarMongoose is going to be extremely busy this month and I offered to write the August 24th edition of the quiz in his place.  So you know what that means...

I need some help deciding which game to quiz y'all on

For the next several days, please suggest any and all RPGs on which you'd like to be quizzed.  The quiz format, rules, and prize are going to be exactly the same as they've always been.  In general, my expertise is Japanese RPGs from the early 90s to the middle 2000s, but there are exceptions to that rule, of course.  Fire as many suggestions as you want and we'll see what sticks.

A couple of things.

First, congrats Mongoose on your victory.

Second, congrats again Mongoose for your promotion.

Third, Radiant Historia; if only to motivate more people into playing that.

And finally I would've posted sooner, but man alive, have I been having computer trouble today.

I have played Radiant Historia and I enjoyed it, but I dunno if enough others have played it.  Would anyone besides Aeolus be down for that quiz? 

And in addition far we've had people propose or second SMRPG and FF Tactics, and I could write quizzes about either.  Do we have any additional suggestions?

Post by: Monsoon on August 13, 2013, 12:58:53 AM
OK, using this input and my own personal gaming preferences I've come down to six choices:

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Earthbound
Final Fantasy Tactics
Skies of Arcadia
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Tales of Vesperia


I'll make the quiz about one of those six.  I apologize that it's half Square-Enix, but a lot of my history of playing RPGs is Square-Enix.  A few more days of discussion, then I'll pick one and start replaying, playing, researching, and writing.  So let's talk.

I wish I was out, instead I'm babysitting my nephew from Noon to Seven and I have to wake up with him in morning. Normally around 5:30AM.
I make plans to go out on Friday.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Aeolus on August 13, 2013, 03:57:03 AM
I'll pull for SMRPG:LotSS.

I kinda want to win one of these again. And hopefully, I get my schedule sorted out so I don't have a repeat of the previous quiz.

Post by: Monsoon on August 16, 2013, 05:20:11 PM
Prepared to make an announcement later tonight, my fluffy little friends....

Is Saturday still the best day for everyone?  If I plan in advance I can set aside time on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.  I live on the east coast of the U.S. so late afternoon or evening is best (4-8PM EST, 1-5PM PST, 8PM-12AM GMT).  What time is best for people?
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

Not from me, anyway.

You can organize another one if you want, though.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Annubis on September 01, 2013, 04:52:16 PM
Thinking about it, it must be hard to find a game you know enough to quiz others.
Even stuff like FF7 or SO2 which I've played multiple times, I'm probably too dumb about them to quiz anyone.

I think the only game I'd be confident about would be Chrono Trigger and SO3.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on September 01, 2013, 07:30:16 PM
It's not that hard, I just do a lot of fact checking. It's more time consuming than anything.

Nah, I just won't be able to do one for a while due to life. :)
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

I'd feel comfortable hosting on FF VI, FF Tactics, Skies of Arcadia, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, Tales of Phantasia, Tales of Vesperia, or any Dragon Quest game between III and VIII.  So... who's hosting?  Who wants to?  We do want another show, right? 
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

I could start working on a Chrono Trigger or SO3 one =/

What is the usual questionnaire?

- How many easy
- How many normal
- How many hard

Is the music and graphic question a tradition?
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on September 06, 2013, 10:05:55 AM
It's 3 easy
     4 medium

I think the music/picture round adds variety, but it's up to you.

Speaking of which, I'm kind of up in the air at the moment given my lack of access to my main computer.

Maybe I should just vote on Star Ocean 3 so that I wont have to worry about missing much.

I worked on this a good bit and I've got 10 questions.
I just don't like half of them.

Also trying to find how I could do a visual and audio question.
The music of SO3 is pretty well known because of the OSTs... or is it just me?

You could ask which song is based on a Star Ocean 2 theme?? x__X
I guess it's kinda well known, I'd argue it's one of Sakuraba's better OSTs.

I don't admire who has to make the questions though, it is tough to try and find things that people can know but are still challenging.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Annubis on September 10, 2013, 12:03:35 PM
Well, there's also stuff that I know but I find way too meta.
I could ask which song from a j-pop artist was included in the game, but then that's not really about the game anymore.

A: Tobikata Wo Wasureta Chiisana Tori (The Small Bird That Forgot How To Fly)
Plays at the very beginning and on the ending credits

Man, if you had been there then I wouldn't have had to have taken that quiz. The only reason why I did was to see it done and dusted since I knew I was going to get my ass kicked almost as badly as if I had done the Persona 4 quiz.

The fact that I got even one question right was a goddamn miracle.

At least I quite a bit more comfortable with FFIX than with any Tri-Ace game.

Well, I don't know what All Saints Day is, so i'm exempt.

All Saints' Day is the reason why we have an All Hallows' Eve (better known as Halloween). There's a whole genealogy behind these two days dating back to ancient druid tribes, but sufficed to say, All Saints' Day is the New Year's Day to Halloween's New Year's Eve.

In short, today is that day. And here is my promised post.

Wut.

I meant that in reference to temporal positioning. Halloween is the Eve to which All Saints' is the Day.

Of course, modern culture has caused the Eve to almost totally eclipse the Day. Unlike Christmas Day which still holds enough meaning to be recognized as the main event over Christmas Eve, but very much like New Year's Eve which is (admittedly, kinda nebulous as it's the transition between the days in particular that society celebrates rather than any particular day) the day that people go out and celebrate over New Year's Day (since they'll be too drunk on that day to do more than sleep off their hangovers).

Of course this is all Catholic/Christian/Western Society/etc. nonsense and mostly just an excuse to get out and party.

Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on November 02, 2013, 10:38:53 AM
Daylight Savings Time has already occurred in the UK (last Sunday). So, this makes this confusing for me.

So the easiest way to get this across is to say it is happening in 6 Hours and 20 from now.


Here is a link: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20131102T21&p0=90&msg=RPGfan+Community+Quiz

This quiz is easier than previous quizzes. I think.

You eat dinner at 4?

If the quiz is easy, I may as well give it a try. Never played the game, but people have been speaking about it for more than a decade... maybe I'll luck out and get one right.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

It'll be 5 here on the East Coast. I generally eat dinner a little early on the weekends.
Title: Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Starmongoose on November 02, 2013, 01:45:29 PM
5 is the usual dinner time for me.

It was always based around 5 o'clock because that's when my dad would finish work and we would all have dinner at my grans. I guess I've carried that on out of habit. I know a lot of people who eat dinner at around 8, but I think I would be dying of starvation by then.

Yeah I never could do a late dinner.

But in my super-diet days, I'd eat breakfast at 10, DINNER by 2, then moan and groan till a light snack at 10.  I lost weight, BUT AT WHAT COST TO MY SANITY?!

I'm in later, btw

Granted that FFIX blows pretty much every other FF game out of the water in terms of world building, it's still not nearly as bad as "What was written on Fayt's Shirt?" or "Name the one organization one of your party members hails from in a game where everything has an organization name and they're all generic sounding." or the 'hope that you were a fan of that one particular exclusively optional character that you can bump into at the start of the game and then completely ignore for far better characters because a third of the questions are about her' that SO3 was (and that's not even coming near the million different things about Item Creation, Battle Skills, Unrewarding Sidequests, or junk items that the game could easily inundate you on).

I thought the Q's were fine.  Not easy to craft a quiz for a game that had a giant combat/customization system but also had an Encyclopedia for all the game elements in it.

I suspect that you were getting pulled into a parallel dimension where you didn't participate in the quiz and Mibbit was running some sort of Xanatos Gambit to get you back to it so you could participate and win a Frozen Flame while body-swapping you with Holykael999 to minimize the risk.

Anybody know about Starbound (http://store.steampowered.com/app/211820/)? Well the game is great even though it's basically in Alpha. So I'm throwing in a Steam key for the winner of this week's quiz. We can just call it compensation for the holiday delays. ^__^

I actually just bought it over the holidays and I'll attest to how great it is. Basically it's a fully realized Terraria with a lot more to do.

Also it's not even nearly finished. I've had a finger on the pulse of this game since it was first kickstarted and the devs are extremely cool guys and very responsive when it comes to bugs and ideas for new features.

I beat the damn thing between saturday night and sunday night(like 18:pm to 3:am of the other day) back in february. Got all endings too. Thankfully I had the opportunity to "replay" the game recently. I watched my friend go through the true ending.

Well.. I have watched enough porn(EVERYONE DOES!) to know that when people are partaking in sexual intercourse they dont smile like that(it's a different kind of smile I guess ?!? that's what Im trying to get across). Why have I gone down this path... I should have kept quiet. Now this is awkward..

Demon Princess Kay was yet another in a long line of forum "oddities" that was too strange to live and too rare to die.  There were dildo talks, yuri anime talk, sexual talk of video game heroine's were hot, and I think she had her social issues too.  She liked pink too.

http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?action=profile;u=3325;sa=showPosts
Here's her posts, some are special.

I was born a demon princess. I even have demon slaves to do my bidding.

My girlfriend agreed to let me call her my waifu tonight, also we talked for 4 hours straight. Today was a good day :D

I hate getting wet.

This statement goes against everything I believe in

As I've already stated a bunch of times in this thread I don't even care about this games story. After the clusterfuck that was FFXIII's story I don't think they can save it. So at the end of the day all I want is fun gameplay and cute ass to stare at. In a game where I don't care about story I only care about how the characters look. For example when I play DW i just pick the girl I find the most attractive regardless of what her part in the story is cause the story is pretty much negligible.

In a game like Persona 4 where I actually give a damn about the characters I do care how their personality is, but as it stands I couldn't give 2 fucks about Gran Pulse and Coccoon or where ever else it takes place cause I have no connection to the world expect the fact that I want to do nasty things to Serah and Vanille.


Or maybe people realize personality doesn't really matter when she's just a bunch of rendered pixels and just find that she looks attractive. Also LAURA BAILEY!

aaaand (this comment is a little sexual if you don't want to read just don't highlight within the spoiler tag, okay)

Code: [Select]
I have this really huge fetish about submissive or smaller girls. I want them to dominate me. I find it sexy if a girl like that does something like that to me. Hence my attraction to Serah.
The end people asked and there's my answer.

Since you're playing it and I can't remember it, can you tell me if they ever justify what happens to Squall at the end of Disc 1?  I feel like it wasn't adequately explained.....and disc 3.  All of it.

But most importantly, Galbadia Garden has an ice rink and the best enemies ever in that ice rink.

Healing....That's such a cop-put for a pretty rad FMV.

I'll tell you this much, I think less of Doctors in the FF8 universe if it's as easy as pulling white magic out of their butts to save the world!

Title: Re: RPGFan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Holykael1 on January 12, 2014, 06:18:34 PM
Guys it's a stable time loop, it's not that hard to figure out.  The game sometimes doesnt tell you outright certain aspects of the storyline. Like for example the fact that
Code: [Select]
Squall is Laguna's son , it's all there even if not stated outright and the story makes perfect sense except for that one plot twist
Code: [Select]
The orphanage plot twist, that was terrible .
Ultimecia is a pretty damn interesting villain aswell when you think about it. The game doesnt directly speak about her motivations but you can kinda piece it together with the history of the world they present to you.. It's very subtle, just think about the circumstances of her existence. I strongly suggest if you guys have the time to watch this hour and a half analsys of the game. You can skip the first half if you are not interested in the discussion of the gameplay elements(which I actually dont agree very much with the author of the review, his interpretation of the story and the various characters is spot on though).

I think we talked about that theory in depth in a thread a year or two ago. I can't remember. I like it, but at the same time I really doubt its validity. It tries to paint plot holes like NORGs complete irrelevance to the plot other than to announce Edea and Cid being married as part of a fever dream. When really, it just seemed like poor storytelling.

EDIT: I actually thought of this a couple minutes ago. How did Cid not know that the Garden could fly? He said so himself that he BUILT Garden, through the funding of NORG. How do you forget that? GF's again a suppose, our favourite plot excuse! GF made me forget!
Title: Re: RPGFan Community Quiz Quiz Show!
Post by: Dice on January 12, 2014, 07:11:38 PM
eugh... I hate the GF stuff.  Not because "amnesia" is an overdone plot point and ... but because you never really interact with any of the GF's; literally it is turning a battle component into a plot device (I don't think they actually give any indication of in-plot moments where they can't remember shit either with their recent use of GFs, nor is their memory only "foggy" than completely forgotten upon meeting each other*).  If FF9 pulled it off, I'd believe it better because a Summon is in about half of the FMVs.

And I like the theory about Squall is dead (or the similar one spelled out for Zelda: Majora's Mask) -- but I can't imagine it being what the creator or writers had in mind beyond awesome coincidences.  And like Mongoose says, it's a good coverup for otherwise bad storytelling. I dare a plot to pull that off though.

Movie spoilers:
Code: [Select]
The Descent pulled this off.  It wasn't a "she was dead" the whole time thing but a twist in that she "thought she was saved"..only to cut to her imminent death.

EDIT: I actually thought of this a couple minutes ago. How did Cid not know that the Garden could fly? He said so himself that he BUILT Garden, through the funding of NORG. How do you forget that? GF's again a suppose, our favourite plot excuse! GF made me forget!

There are quite a few explanations that could  work, but the two I find most likely are:

1. Clearly, Cid didn't build Garden with his own two hands. He probably had plenty of people working on the designs, and I'm sure NORG himself had the ability to put in his own ideas without necessarily verifying them with Cid.

2. This is Final Fantasy. Garden's design is probably based on advanced technology from an ancient culture that nobody really understands.

But really, FF8's plot is a choppy mess that feels like five plots ground together into a single plot sausage.

* If I'm wrong I"m sorry, it's been a while.

When the heck did RPGFan have fanfics?

You guys sound like you need to lay off the GF usage for a while.


That said, FFVIII's plot was all about Squall and his developing romance towards Riona to begin with. I mean, even the assassination attempt could be boiled down to "Don't worry. Whatever happens, Squall will take care of it.". Rinoa has an item that could depower the Sorceress? Great, lets lock her in her room and ignore her and her stupid plan, and hope she doesn't do anything stupid like tricking another party member into letting her out so she could put herself in harm's way and force Squall into making a detour to save her. Drop gates both in front of and behind the Sorceress' float? Great, now she knows that somebody's gunning for her, hopefully no apprehensive snipers have to take a shot at her while she's on red alert and her shields are up. Hell, it was so much of Squall's show that when he inevitably makes his attempt at offing Edea, nobody takes action to stop his attack outside of Squall's turncoat rival Seifer and Edea herself, despite the fact that not only is he storming the float in the middle of a parade meant to display and showcase the nation's military might, but that the whole goddamn nation should've been on high alert given the two previous attempts made on Edea earlier that very night, let alone the Timber clusterfuck where Squall and co. publicly broadcasted both their intent and their affiliation on the very first live television broadcast in almost twenty years. The most damming thing about the whole assassination attempt though, is that the only reason why it fails is because Edea got a cutscene powered attack off before Squall could deliver the finishing blow.

Basically, despite everything that could possibly go wrong going wrong in the most spectacular way possible, that is the sole reason why the whole clusterfuck falls apart, even his allies didn't even bother once he went down.

And then there's crap like NORG, the Centra continent, the Orphanage cutscene, anything having to do with Esthar, anything having to do with the political or geographical scale of anything (you have a world with two, maybe three countries counting Balmb, five cities, eight if you count the Gardens, three villages, and a bunch of miscellaneous crap like a prison, a missile base, a deep sea research station, an orphanage, and a couple of dungeons and forests), anything involving Riona (yes, including that stupid dance scene, what other explanation is there for Squall's initial ineptitude at dancing other than he suddenly cutscene powers his way into getting good in a hurry; seriously, she is so much The Load that its no wonder I hate her archetype with a passion), among other things.

Well, if people are interested I could run a quiz about Final Fantasy VI or Persona 3.  I've put in hundreds of hours into both of those games and could probably do a better job on those than the time I tried a Super Mario RPG quiz.

In that case, with all due respect, I'd probably be good to assemble the SO2 one.  I play it almost once every two years or more.

Super Mario RPG would be great.

Have we done an FFX one?  This might be the time to hit on that one.

Or a Tales of Symphonia one while we're at it.

Fire Emblem is another big hitter I'd think.

Heh, Blitzball isn't hard. I can safely say I'll never lose a Blitzball match. I can easily secure at least a few overtimes before I eventually score. There are some easy adjustments you can make on your team right at the start.

First, recruit Wedge. Biggs isn't that good, but Wedge is a great striker. He has good Endurance, Attack and Shoot. You can find him just outside the locker room area in Luca.

Second replace Keepa immediately. He's garbage. Instead get Jamal, who is hanging around Luca somewhere, sitting on a chair if I remember right. He'll be your goalie until you get the chick who wears red (I can't remember her name), who hangs out near the Moonflow.

Getting Tidus's Jecht Shot on the boat ride from Killika to Luca helps a lot. If you are smart enough with your passes you can get Tidus right infront of the goal with only 2 defenders taking him on. At early levels you'll only have enough HP to use it once until halftime (and then subsequent overtimes). Once he gets a few levels though, you don't need to worry about it.

After your fairly easy goal using Jecht Shot, just play defensively. Jamal with Super Goalie should be able to catch just about anything anyone shoots at the early levels. The Al Behd Pysches may give you a bit of grief, but its not too bad.

Yeah, early game Pysches are a pain ("looking at you mr. goalie who has more Catch than a Jecht Shot powered Tidus has in Shot") but otherwise the game is simple enough to run with even your basic Aurochs. Also I found my new midfielder on the ferry to Killika.

I think we've had more than 6. But obviously, we still haven't had enough.

Title: Re: RPGFan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

Well, if the interest is still there. I will happily host more quizzes. I had to stop for a while there, but life has returned to normal and I am ready to get it going again. Plus it's annoying me that the 999 quiz is still in the newsbox. :P

Okay. I like the idea of a Fire Emblem: Awakening quiz. I havn't actually played Xenogears (sue me) so that'll be another quiz.

Any other suggestions?

I'd probably only observe a Suikoden _ or Fire Emblem: Awakening quiz, as I haven't played any of those.  I'd be happy to play OR host one about Persona 3, Final Fantasy IV through VI, or FF Tactics. 
Title: Re: RPGFan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

The Quizzes so far have been:

Chrono Trigger
Chrono Cross
Final Fantasy VII
Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Persona 4
Pokemon Red and Blue

Those are the ones I've done at least. I felt like maybe Monsoon or someone else held their own quiz? But I don't have the questions for those saved to my computer.

Looking at it, I'm not objected to a Final Fantasy 9 quiz myself.

On the plus side, at least its not VLR.

Also, I see that you've got the Newsbox up and running so that should help (although not for dodging the bullet on more Persona Spam).

Come on guys! Lets build S-Ranks, not S-Links!

To the surprise of absolutely no one, I support additional Persona quizzes :)

I have no direct control over it. I couldn't HTML my way out of a paper bag, so I rely on other editors to help me. Prism Flux is once again my hero.

We should attach that penguin gif to any NEW news in the update box (and post that shit on the site's front page; might bring better traffic all 'round).

...Is it just me or with VLR we're not RPG-centric?  I kinda think that's good.

I was obsessed with P3: FES like very few titles I've played since, it's probably my favorite game outside of FFVI and Rogue Galaxy. But it's been almost 5 years since I've touched it =(.

Anyhow, I am noob, so how's this quiz stuff work?  Mibbit's homepage won't even load for me, so I can't make an account and figure out how to do stuff like sign up for #RPGFANHERPADERP or send the scottish fellow a private message.  I've used Mibbit before when a bunch of us from another fourm used to get together to watch UFC events back in the day, but we never had to register.

Unfortunately, I spent my time chasing skirts instead of raising my Academics which means I haven't even established an S-Link with P3Z so I'm gonna have to sit this one out.

Sure, I'll play the ***hole heel this time.  Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Monsoon.  I'm good at quiz games.  I've beaten P3 three times in the past 24 months.  I won the P4 quiz last year.  Plus a few others.  Bring it on.  I like my chances (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMp8aDH8d9M).

Basically, we meet in a chat channel (IRC) and I get everyone to send me a private message on there before it starts. I will ask a question in the public chat, and everyone will send me their answer in our private chat. Telling the answer in the public chat gets you banned. There is a time limit for how long you have to answer the question, to stop google-ninjas.

The questions go from Easy to Hard difficulty as it progresses. Easy questions get you 1 point, medium questions get you 2 points and hard questions get you 3 points.

I will reveal the winner at the end, and if you want I'll also tell you your score if you didn't win.

I should be able to make this, but I'm not 100% sure. I live on the east coast of the U.S., so the quiz is 4PM tomorrow for me. I'm normally at work until 5PM, but I think I can leave a bit early tomorrow. Not sure about other Americans who are still at work or school, though.

If I'm the only one who shows, does that mean that I win by default?

If so then stay the course, because I've got nothing but some fools to smash on that day and I could always go for a free game (and I even have one in particular in mind). Besides, its not like its your fault for not advertising it or posting the time and date.

It was a close battle between Dice and Monsoon, but Monsoon came out ahead by 1 point.

Wait!?! Shit!!! Today was the third! I kept thinking it was gonna be on Saturday like it previously was. Fucking Cognitive Dissonance.

Oh well, my excuse was that I was in the middle of getting and playing Smash Bros. For.

Hopefully, Monsoon will put his winnings to good use.

And speaking of, what was decided to be the next round's subject?
Title: Re: RPGFan Community Quiz Quiz Show!

I think this was Glassjawsh's first quiz, so you're halfway to your madness hypothesis. 

And I would play the **** out of basically any quiz, but Persona 3+4 are specific to my skillset.  I would probably get annihilated if the quiz was for Breath of Fire or Star Ocean, even though I have played a few games in those series. 

And thanks for the congrats, everybody!  My prize is going straight to the PSN, where it shall stay until I can use it to buy and download Legend of Heroes:  Trails in the Sky Second Chapter.  Let's do this again!  I'm probably not winning anything ever again until we get to a Skies of Arcadia or Dragon Quest VIII quiz.

There was a countdown clock. :P You just had to click the time and date in the newsbox and it would have taken you to a countdown clock.

Future quizzes will be on Saturdays, the Friday thing was me not being able to figure out how calenders work when I was arranging it.

i'll have a new strawpoll up this Friday.
