Reviews are mixed. Personally, due to the attempts at gameplay innovation I think it's sounding like it's this year's Killer 7 - crappy game with a great story.

I started replaying this game, and I must say, I'm loving it more this time.

I think more games should do something like this one's "Dictionary", I love reading that thing, its especially great to see how they explain some scientific terms and talk about previous SO titles.

I think that game had issues with how it was designed, since you could come across spoiler filled ones way before you found out in-game... But. It's still good, and should really be used in any game with an assload of characters/terms.

So, apparantly the Orrey mission is completable in 10 minutes. Maybe the reward makes it worth the trouble, but... To me, it doesn't really seem like Bethesda has the right idea on what to do with this content. The horse armor is almost trivial, and if the Orrey's that quick, it seems almost pointless. Probably more importantly than the length alone though is the type of game Oblivion is - a large game where you could spend over a hundred hours playing and see only about half of the entire game. This is akin to trying to sell you something like a small order of potato chips or french fries at an all-you can eat buffet: Why should I give a shit when there's so much I can try and eat as it is?

Admittedly, it's just two bucks... But I think it'd be more satisfying to get a bunch of extra stuff bundled together in a single 10 dollar downloadable pack. Hopefully they do just that later.

I'll probably pick it up on the XBox after I beat the PC version. Dunno when that'll be, since I can't stand my PC's performance of it.

Hell yes! SMT is my favorite series right now, and there is no news that could be better. Here's hoping it won't get butchered in any way because of it's content.

Given what I've seen of Devil Summoner, and having played through SMT:N and DDS1 and 2... I think you have nothing to worry about.

Now, Persona 3, that raises concern. :P

I'm greatly enjoying SuikV at the moment... But some of these design choices seem backwards as hell. I really shouldn't be thinking the first game in a series did basic things like scrolling through a menu and putting on equipment better. :P

I don't mind stuff like the Orrey or the tower, I just think the horse armor's a shitty purchase. Mind, I also acknowledge that it's Bethesda's right to sell additions like that as they see fit - I just think it's a horrible business choice and they should've either A. given the horse armor for free to entice people into later buying other things, or additional armors, or B. included one of each of the armors with the two upcoming areas. As is, unless it's offered for free later or bunlded with something else, I won't be buying the horse armor. :P

I imagine they don't release games often enough to stay in business on their own or something like that - it's taking longer and longer between the release of their games.

Beat SMT:N as noted in the Game Journal thread. Yeah,  now I can safely say this is my fave RPG from 2004. =P

Edit: Since it's gone on for 6 pages since it started, may as well post my list here now.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
Suikoden IV
Shin Megemi Tensei: Nocturne

And for the 'sorta counts' games, just Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.

Beat SMT:N just now, and got the neutral ending. Even though it seems like the typical kind of ending that'd disappoint me, I'm satisfied with it anyway. Will start up SuikV tomorrow.

Quote from: "Bogatyr"
SO2 is amazing. I don't know why you complain about the "VA", as voices can only be heard in battles.

It's different for each person. Personally, I /hate/ it when they insist on yelling out shit when doing a single damn thing in the middle of a fight. But that's more of a problem in turn based games (Atelier Iris really annoyed me in English as far as this went), while with more action packed games like Star Ocean I'm more focused on the action. I understand that bad voice acting can do harm to a cutscene, but the constant irritation from hearing it in battle is almost just as bad. :P

I honestly can't really talk fully on SO2, but if 1 and 3, and what I've played of 2 are any indicators... No, you won't reach that magical point. :P

Effectively cleared the Kalpas in SMT:N, but made a save before I saw the final events, so I can have an ideal save for getting both the neutral ending and the true demon ending.
10889  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Are Storylines Really So Important? on: April 12, 2006, 10:34:51 PM
Some of these replies make me wonder, though. Do some of you value story over gameplay in all genres, or only RPGs?

One of the big problem for prank callers is the fact they may take away help from those that really need it - but I figure trying to do something about a problem and accidentally miss a real one is better than brushing off someone you think is joking, and instead have them die.
