My last post was just a page back, but that was 3 monthes ago, and it's been slow, so I'm just reposting here.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
Suikoden IV
Shin Megemi Tensei: Nocturne
Vagrant Story
Valkyrie Profile (B Ending, Normal)
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth (A and C Endings, Hard)

Again, for the 'sorta' games, just Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow for now.

Beat VS, a week after starting a new game and 6 years of owning it. It was starting to get pretty repetitive near the end, so it was a good time to end, and I enjoyed it alot, though I spoilt myself on the ending years ago, back when I thought I wouldn't beat it. Still though, my memories on that were hazy, and there were other twists I didn't know of.

Wish the game were a bit more refined though; charts ala SMT:N for item fusing would've made the process much easier (though it might not have been easily doable on the PSX's resolution), and several little quirks could've been squashed. Too bad we'll probably never get a sequel that addresses those issues. :P

Edit: Also, I likely won't touch the extra stuff, not unless I get the urge to replay it later on. I enjoyed the game, but when I finish it I usually feel like I'm /done/ with it then. So the only incentives to make me keep going are usually epilogue type things, ala Lunar EB and, in a way, DQVIII, or if the game was just that short/fun.

Also, took 40 and a half hours to beat the game, a good bit of that time spent standing stupidly in a workshop wondering what to combine.

If it weren't for the Virtual Console, I /might/ have waited on that in favor of this treasure trove of games - the new control system fascinates me, but buying old games has sold me. As is... Well dammit. :P

Also, it's either Devil Summoner 3, or just Devil Summoner. It's not a sequel to anything that came out here, and it's preceded by two titles over in Japan.

For me, my main complaint was that TOSE changed the pixelated sprites into these annoying blurry-ish sprites that give me a headache.

You do realize you called the original sprites blurry or unclear by calling them pixelated don't you? I believe you mean "pixel-based sprites," or as a further disambiguation, "pixelation."

It's (probably) the same thing that was done in ToE's conversion. They use the graphical capabilities of the system to blurry up sprites a bit ala a polygon texture. Personally, I don't really like how it looks, but I'll deal. :P
10595  The Rest / General Discussions / I'm a Mac and I'm a PC parody commercial on: July 10, 2006, 06:10:41 PM
I'd like to see some parodies poking at the fact that for how 'hip and cool' the Mac is, that it lacks most of the game library that the PC has. :P

That was amusing, at any rate.
10596  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Help w/ RPG name. What am I thinking about? on: July 09, 2006, 07:46:53 PM
I can all but guarantee it's Alundra. I played the demo of Dual Hearts, and 'adult themes' was one of the last things that came to mind. Alundra, on the other hand, is definitely of a more mature nature.
10597  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Smash Bros. Brawl on: July 09, 2006, 01:17:09 PM
Yeah, SoArc is too obscure anyway. Characters like Sonic are much more likely, and if they were to use any RPG charactered, it'd probably be Phantasy Star ones.

As for Alucard: It's the same thing as with Snake, but hard to actually say he leans more towards Sony or Nintendo. He debuted in CV3, and appeared in two of the portable CVs. But he wasn't the lead for any but SoTN. Nevertheless, he'd count. But for a Nintendo themed game, I'd rather see Simon Belmont.

As for phobias, they are irrational, illogical fears.  There's a phobia for everything.  As silly as a pickle phobia may sound, it's real.

I don't doubt that. But everything you said is why I believe it's just staged. Plus personally, if I was /terrified/ of pickles and mustard, the last thing I'd want is the world to know. And if I was to go on TV, I'd rather go with something more than some hack of a day time TV talk show. :P

Why the fuck isn't there a topic for this yet? Anyways, just saw it. Fucking awesome. If you haven't seen it, do so.
10601  The Rest / General Discussions / Videogame violence! on: July 08, 2006, 01:41:17 PM
Some of the legislation that's been pissing me off the most - maybe the only game legislation that does at that - is the attempts to classify violent video games as 'obscene', ala porn. Hiding cases of GTA is a bit too much for trying to keep minors from playing it, and the concept of making it flat out /illegal/ for them to play it, regardless of what the parents decide, angers me out of principal. Ofcourse, it's not like playing these games can't be easily hidden, but still.

The simple 'card minors for selling violent games' bit just annoys me when they don't do the same to movies and whatnot, though I don't exactly want it to happen to them either. :P

Been playing Vagrant Story, nearing the 10 hour point. Enjoying it a lot, but I'm getting annoyed at small things. Some are oversights, but one thing pissed me off and makes no sense: Being unable to equip/unequip items, or disassemble them, when you're going through loot. If they didn't allow you to do this in combat or something, that would make sense. But if I can undress and redress, switch weapons, and pop in gems in my equipment while a dragon is towering over me, I can at least fucking remove a helmet to throw away while sorting through loot. Hell, at least /leave it there/ if it came out of a treasure chest.

Grah, at least I didn't make much progress past the last save point there. :P
10603  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Vagrant Story on: July 08, 2006, 02:35:39 AM
Man, I forgot how great this game was. Makes me more excited for FFXII as well. How many of you guys played this and enjoyed it, or hated it, back when it came out or whenver you got it? And did it kick your ass? :P
10604  The Rest / General Discussions / Videogame violence! on: July 07, 2006, 11:00:16 PM
I saw this back when it initially aired, or at least the first rerun. This is hilarious, and shows how sadly out of touch the politicians are with statements such as the one about the rich/poor kids. The enviroment of the poor kids he specified would do more harm than a single video game would, anyway.

Cowboy: Yeah, they just flat out enact it, as last I checked some areas of Canada /do/ require one's age to be checked before purchase. But unlike in the USA, I'm pretty sure that movies are no exception in such areas, while here apparantly R rated movies don't need laws to keep from being sold/rented to minors while games do.
10605  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Has anyone heard from Victor Ireland lately? on: July 07, 2006, 01:35:33 PM
Quote from: "ronhelig"
Like him or not though, he brought over RPG's that would otherwise never have seen the light of day in the USA.  They weren't always the greatest choices granted, but at least we got them.  I miss him and hope he makes an announcement soon about SOMETHING.  Even if just about the evolution of man.

It's why I don't truly hate the company and whatnot - more annoyed every so often than anything else. They were ahead of everyone during the 16 bit generation and much of the 32-bit. But with this generation, they kinda slipped behind while other companies like Atlus and NIS America took up their torch, but did almost everything as good or better for the most part.
