I didn't look at the 'sometimes controversial' link before, figuring it'd just be a link to the religion in video games bit Jeremy Parish did prior, but it actually links to a feature on the controversial elements in Shin Megami Tensei. You can read it here, but be warned: It has penis.

Outside of Roms and the like... If you can run DOSBox, you can get Elder Scrolls: Arena here. And while not an RPG, Cave Story's pretty awesome.

As for RPGMaker: Any games made with that, IIRC, are standalone and free for anyone who doesn't have it, so if you can find some site with them, hey. :P

If I could afford to casually buy something like that, holy shit I would. Sounds good to me. :P

Not surprising, but awesome news nevertheless. But if he were waking up and wondering 'how can I make this company more awesome?', he'd also be getting the PSP title localized. :P
10910  The Rest / General Discussions / 911 Dispatcher's Mistake Leads to Mother's Death on: April 10, 2006, 04:12:54 AM
Quote from: "Dios GX"
I'd just like to point out that for all anybody knows, when she "passed out" it could have been due to an aneurism and she would have been dead before this kid called 911. So I fail to see how she is "responsible" for someone's death. She is however, stupid as fuck for not taking it seriously.

That's how I interpreted it when I heard about it, that she had already died, so I've been more pissed at the throwing away the possibility to save her, as well as the whole 'Haha you're a kid you must be pulling a prank' bullshit.

Decided to pick back up SMT:N. Beat Death and went through the 3rd Kalpa. May focus on this instead of Oblivion for now.

Agreed with Neal. Also: If it's a false alarm, then having some police drill into their heads to not do this will have a much stronger effect then being hung up on by some stupid whore.

Edit: I worked off knowledge from what I heard on TV, but didn't look at the article. She's /not getting fired/? That pisses me the fuck off, she is responsible for someone DYING because of her incompetence. God fucking dammit, I'm thinking I'm going to be better off keeping phone numbers to the police and hospital around if that's how these stupid shitbags work.

umm... well... ah.... Ive never had to pay for a pet kitten, they usualy give the critters away in pet stores around my area.

Yes you do - in the form of medical bills. :P

I don't know you, and didn't take this seriously so I voted kitty. Had you been someone who's been here longer though, I'd have voted KH2.

Got the top rank in the Fighter's Guild in Oblivion at 60 hours of gameplay. Will deal with the main quest, try to buy all the houses, then probably call it quits for the time being unless I get an urge to deal with the other guilds.

Most of the bad I've heard about Suikoden V there was that it just takes awhile to build up. But once stuff starts up, it's huge.
10916  The Rest / General Discussions / PS3 $500 Euros on: April 07, 2006, 04:40:17 PM
I'm not touching the PS3 until it's been out at least a year. Usually that's all it takes for the good games to come out, but I hate the feeling of getting a brand new, shiny, expensive system... And being bored to tears with it because I don't have anything to play on it that's either good or I haven't beaten in a short period of time. We do spend a fortune on games, I'm sure, but we can sit down and enjoy those games right away - buying a PS3 right off the bat instead of those games is an investment, not something you'll enjoy right away. The price is an important factor, but what games are out at the time are more significant to me - and if this follows the example of virtually every other console, espicially the PS2, it'll be worth picking up come fall 2007.

Plus I want to get the Revolution. Screw it if there's next to no good new games to play, I can download an assload of old games that I want to play (again). :P
10917  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Square Enix merge on: April 07, 2006, 05:16:29 AM
I think the biggest change wouldn't be in the games themselves, but their translations. Games Square would've made would likely remain the same, it's not like the Square USA really changed when it became Square Enix USA. But the Enix games would almost certainly be either mildly or substantially different in translation, whether it's different voice actors, different dialogue, or just completely different from what we ultimately got (I'd be willing to bet that unless Enix Japan would have decided to push for the voice acting and other changes, DQVIII would've been just the text translated, and probably a release as Dragon Warrior VIII). As well, I bet the more minor Enix games, espicially the DQ spinoffs/remakes would've made it here.

Sketch - if it weren't for the fact it's generally common sense to make a seperate save for clear data (or overwriting a save you don't care about), and the fact both SH1 and 2 did this, I might sympathize with you. As is... Well, what Dade said. :P
10919  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Oblivion on: April 06, 2006, 10:07:06 PM
Anyone running into major bugs with this game? I had one case where a bandit I was fighting remained perfectly still, yet his model was swnging around as he attacked, moved, or whatever. And saves around (after?) that time wouldn't load up correctly, so I couldn't continue with the game.

Thank god I have multiple saves, I'll have to see how back I can load until it's safe, then redo that quest. :P

Game's out in a few days, and there's a demo on the XBox Live Marketplace. Checked it out - yeah, the series is definitely worth playing again, and for once my optimism for a game with the odds stacked against it wasn't misplaced. They ditched the stupid control scheme that worked for the first game and pretty much only that, and on a whole controls very well. While I think it's only worth of about an 8, the level of improvement from the previous games is roughly the same as RE4's. Will definitely rent it later or when it drops down in price.
