this place stinks

First time you post out of the book/music forum, and it's this. We won't be missing you when you get your ass banned.

Yeah, Metal Saga's an RPG that Atlus picked up. If you wanna read more, check this out. While RPGFan doesn't seem to have a preview, there's pictures.

On topic, making more progress in R&C3. Mostly getting money and weapon levels though

Well, I'm pretty sure that the first few were in fact developed in house, back when all you needed was 10 people to make a game. At the least, I know Yuji Horii was in a programming contest amongst Enix employees and won.

And as shocking as Square and Enix merging was, after seeing Sonic on a nintendo system, well. Anything was possible. =P

I have pretty much zero respect for scientology, so the fact he seems to convinently get upset after that's poked at, yet not when other religions are, makes me not really sympathize with him.
11000  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / UMD Movies on: March 13, 2006, 07:25:51 PM
I'm arguing that for those that don't take trips very often and want to watch a movie or show for one or two trips, it's cheaper to just get a UMD movie. If I don't have a good laptop or a portable DVD player yet have a PSP, it's just not practical to get those for that purpose, although the Laptop would be more useful overall in the long run. Of course UMDs aren't the optimal solution, but it's better for one 10-20 buck UMD than a few hundred for a portable DVD player or a thousand for a laptop.

By the way, that 'Blah blah UMD fucking sucks' shit is getting annoying. We got it the first two times you posted, do you really need to end every post with that? :P
11001  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Thought-Provoking RPG Suggestions on: March 13, 2006, 07:01:51 PM
Quite frankly, you're fucked. Outside of the suggestions already listed and the games you played, you're better off reading books or at least looking at different genres.

If you'll accept games /period/, take a look at Killer 7. Maybe it's considered pretentious by some, I don't know. I imagine it WOULD be the type to get that reaction. But even if it is, it'll leave you going 'what the fuck' for a good long while.

Are Kingdom Hearts 2 and Suikoden 5 the end of the RPG overflow we've been having? I can't make money fast enough to buy these things :P

Atelier Iris 2 is supposedly coming out next month, and Metal Saga in May. Either way, those two games (and I believe Steambot Chronicles, but that's not an RPG) are slated to come out in 'Spring 2006'.

I think it's more the shape of the system than the size of it that makes hands cramp up; the SP is much smaller but more comfortable to use. I can't really tell if that's fixed or not though, but it doesn't look like it jabs into your hands as much if I'm remembering right..
11004  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Bioware to jump into MMORPG market on: March 13, 2006, 04:30:46 PM
GameSpot reports on unveiling of Texas MMORPG studio.
Fascinating. Maybe they'll be able to keep churning out great single player games while making these MMOs since it's a seperate studio.

I mean honestly, between my DS and a portable DVD player, I'd be getting more game and more movie.

See, that's the thing. If you're traveling a lot, that's a much better idea than just having a PSP with UMD movies and games, but if you're going to make one long trip, like going on a vacation somewhere or seeing relatives, and you already own a PSP, then just picking up a UMD movie or two (and either a car adapter or multiple batteries) will be more affordable for how much you'd use it. Naturally, that doesn't really apply if you don't own a PSP or have had a DVD player anyway.

Since the DS is based on physical touchy-touchy of the screen making it smaller doesn't appeal to me. I'll pass on this one.

CW's right, the screens are the same size, the system's just smaller; find some comparison shots, the DS screen if anything looks larger due to the system being smaller.
11007  Media / Single-Player RPGs / How did a company like Level-5 land DQ VIII? on: March 13, 2006, 03:59:45 PM
First of all, double posting is considered a bad idea, and you could've easily edited that. Good idea to do anyway if you want the mods to not get on your ass. :P

Secondly, Level 5 isn't owned by SCEA; they were going to develop an MMO for Microsoft as well, though that wound up being canned. Not like Enix prior to the merger really had much in the way of internal developers, IIRC it was more that they were a good publisher. Pretty sure the recent DQs, maybe even all of them past the first few, weren't developed in house by Enix.

As for Game Arts, I think Enix owns a partial stake in them. They did publish Grandia Xtreme afterall. Logically, Square Enix would publish the next game in the series.
11008  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga Episode III Dated on: March 12, 2006, 07:33:26 PM
I don't feel like typing a long reply, but I'd like to note that you'd have to genuinely fix something to actually please people. To me, the battle system was fine but a little slow before, but now it's horrible and only fast for the first hour or so of the game, then slows down too damn much for normal battles.

For the record, I enjoyed XS1 a good deal but hated 2 for the most part. And beat both.
11009  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: March 11, 2006, 05:45:09 PM
Played an assload of R&C3, 7 hours in. Pretty good, though I liked Jak 3 more.
11010  The Rest / General Discussions / A discussion on localisations and censorship on: March 11, 2006, 05:32:52 PM
I won't deny that video games are far from being works of literary genius, but if I'm buying a game, I want that specific game, not what someone else wanted to create, so the principal of it tends to annoy me more than anything else. Even outside of story/character changes though, there's things like rebalancing difficulty and the like; I generally don't mind that though as long as either 1. the game remains perfectly playable, and 2. if it's too hard, I can at least have the original difficulty options. What Working Designs did with several games is a great example of failing at both, and the original DMC3 sounds like it counts too.
