10636  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #2 on the new(ish) boards on: June 26, 2006, 05:31:56 PM
Went to pick up Parasite Eve from GameStop this Saturday, but it was gone, despite what the inventory checker claimed. However, Tomba was there, so I got that instead.

Really enjoying it, even if it can be a bitch at times. I rented it back when it came out and meant to get it, but never did.

Well, that didn't take long. So who thinks this is some asshole from before? :P

that avatar makes it almost impossible for me to take anything you say seriously.

I don't think you can take half the board seriously then.

Oh God dammit, Dade.

*Note to self, stop clicking on his fucking links*

Sad thing being that it doesn't even affect me anymore.

You know... I didn't take much time to look, but I agree anyway.

Holy crap Dade, we're never going to forget this random act of unwarranted bastardness. Hahaha. :P

Ocelot was a pussy back then. Also, usually I look forward to the little "plot twist phone-call" that happens at the end of each game, and usually I get chills, but when this game finished, I realized that there wasn't anything nearly as outstanding or chilling as the first two. It was like "Ocelot's ADAM? Who's ADAM?"

They brought that back up in the ending, shortly before the credit roll - Two NSA codebreakers supposedly defected to the USSR, 'Adam' and 'Eva'. Adam - Ocelot - was supposed to meet with Snake when he arrived. Instead, the fake Eva - Tatyana- got there first, and killed Ocelot's troops. I don't think anyone knew who 'Eva' was supposed to be, aside from the fact the codename applied to a man, but I think he may've been dead prior. Tatyana used Snake's ignorance on who was who to play the role of Eva and hopefully get the Philosopher's Legacy. Obviously, that fell through.

Edit: Is there some way to program it so any coding used automatically can tell if it's closed? Or unless it's a highly used feature for everyone, to just disable the auto-close-on-post or something?
10641  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW paid character transfer to cost $25 a pop on: June 23, 2006, 04:31:19 AM
With those limitations in mind, $25 seems like one helluva rip off. I guess it's only fair for PVP players... But if you're paying more than you would for some games younger than WoW, and can only do it once every 6 monthes, that seems like a giant ripoff. :P

Yeah, I'd say that the Wiki entry on what yankee means for everyone holds true - I was born and raised in PA, yet I consider yankees to be more applicable to New England. I wouldn't take great offense at being called one though. :P

G-Man...? Is that directed to me...?
Who is it anyway...? Oh... man...  -_-!

HL2 intro, has the G-Man talking.

As... geeky as 'RPG lore' sounds, I have to agree with you, though FFVII was also, IIRC, their single most successful game to that time in Japan. I just don't think it saved them anywhere but here, since they had an assload coming down the pipeline in Japan, and even then that may apply more to the console RPG scene on a whole. That, and I simply never heard that said about the /company/ and not just the US market.

I really wouldn't know, but if Square was poorly run then, or was having declining success with each new title, I could see FF having been the game that finally made them significantly popular and a good bit of cash.

Now I just don't know what's weirder, a RPG starring Chopin or a Japanse Xbox360 RPG :P

Chopin. Now if this was for the original XBox, THAT'D be strange.

And I didn't say that it was bad. Just strange as hell. :P

For MonCaptain and others that want to know more, here's IGN's news story.

I meant that as more of a joke, but your right anyways.... A shame, I really wanted to see Venus & Braves over here as well.

I half wondered if that was how you meant it. Obviously, my strong dislike/hate for Namco's american division, or more specifically how they handle their japanese properties overrides that. :P

Fate: It's annoying when you type like that, even if it is harmless. Also, it takes away the impact from when you want to genuinely emphasize something. How would we know you're not just doing that again because you like it, and not to point something out?

Edit: And it makes me think you talk like the G-Man.

Looking at IGN, this one of the strangest fucking ideas I've ever heard of for a japanese RPG. I'm interested at any rate, and hopefully Namco will bring it out - this looks to have a better chance than most of the new Tales of games anyway. :P

It probably won't come here...... Hmm.. s'pose Agetec will pick it up?? =P

Namco keeps a tight grip on their properties - that, combined with their poor/unreliable track record for bringing titles over makes them my least liked company as far as localization goes. One or the other's easier to deal with - most Japanese companies, or at least companies with a japanese branch, are guilty of one or the other, but Namco's got /both/ covered. Admittedly, it's hard to think of none-RPG instances where this comes into play, though they /did/ severely fuck up AC3.
