I wonder how they had to change their name when they existed before the download service.

Most likely being lazy about getting the copyright/trademarks. Kinda like how I figure Sony got into that stupid mess with the force feedback. And I hate this kinda shit, but I find it kinda amusing an 'of fire' is apparantly enough. Not as bad as when WD had to rename Vanguard Bandits to that name, but that was less legitimate and more silly threatening. :P
10592  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Team Fortress 2 still exists on: July 14, 2006, 02:18:57 PM
Just nothing like when it was shown before, apparantly.

Still, I have yet to see a source other than Lost Fragment/RPGLand post that news. Not to be an untrusting ass, but... I'll wait until I hear it elsewhere. :P

I wouldn't mind a delay though. I've been waiting for a long while on this, but god damn. There's so much shit that'll be out this fall, that it'd be great the lighten the load, espicially with the new consoles to worry about too.

Plus it's a freakin' /portable/. The PSP is a powerhouse, and it's only halfway between a PSX and a PS2. What the heck were you expecting, a PS3? :P

Plus I get nostalgic for that PSX-style 3D. And I like the art style of this.

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
10599  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.
10600  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.
10601  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.

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Ninja

Final Fantasy VII: Ninja Children (or the alternative, Advent Ninja)

Ninja Balls

Ninja Kane

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.
10605  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
