You haven't truly "beaten" a mmorpg until you unsubscribe and snap the discs in half ;)

I dunno about FFXI, there's a definite end to the storyline, so I think as long as you completed that, you count as having beaten that, and the same goes for when you complete the expansions' storylines. :P

I've been picking at SuikV, and given how long that game's supposed to be, it'll probably be awhile before I add on this list, unless I decide to devote myself to KH2.

Edit: And the FFXI logic could probably apply to Oblivion too, now that I think about it.

... Why the fuck do people suddenly have a stick up their ass about cursing around here? Geez, we've been doing it forever and the rules expliciately state that it's fine as long as it's not retardedly over the top. :P

Anyways, yeah. I had no problems finding out how to get Ted in those FAQs. Maybe you were looking in the wrong game or hoping it'd be in the main walkthrough? Hell, I think one or two of those mention during the course of the normal walkthrough and not one of the additional segments.

Well, I do own it, and I figured since this is rpgfan there would be a good chance others would as well ;)

Wait, people play something other than console RPGs here? :P

SMT:N and DDS are both wonderful games, but SMT:N feels a bit more... robust and complete for some reason. Probably because it lasts longer, has all those demons to recuit and use, and the fact DDS recycles so much from SMT:N. :P

I'm genuinely surprised no editor's looked in here and changed that signature picture. I can't force you to change it, not being an editor and all, but as it is; Selena do you mind either changing that signature to something that fits the signature rules, let alone doesn't eat up almost the entire screen, or if you can't/don't want to do that then flat out deleting it? Thanks.

Edit: Though to be on topic, I haven't looked at the Harvest Moon series in quite awhile. Nevertheless, I was a big fan of the first SNES installment, interested right off the bat by how original it was, and later checked out the PSX title.

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
10887  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Oblivion on: April 16, 2006, 07:45:39 PM
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.
