Man, Squallcloud. You officially ARE a stupid fucking asshole. Great job getting yourself banned, dumbass. :P

An oldie but goodie. About all I can say really, though some cliches only apply to a handful of games.

Bumping the topic to post 1up's story on it coming out, and what they say it tastes like.

Guess we won't be missing much other than spiffy bottles if it doesn't come out here.

Dude.. to go forward in parts of Omikron, you need to die to inhabit another body.

Now see, that makes sense, this just seems to be doing it for the sake of doing it.

It's worth noting, on the other hand, that one of the Killer7 characters would slit her wrists and spray blood to open new pathes, and that really didn't bug me - probably because it wasn't THE main character doing it, she wasn't a teenager, and that whole game was nuts anyway.

I have to agree with Hidoshi on the whole 'head shooting thing' as far as how disturbing it is - actually, it just comes off as stupid. Maybe it makes sense to have a villian do it who lets himself be controlled by his Persona, symbolising that he's just fucking himself over. But this seems to be more 'OMFG CONTROVERSY'. I won't miss seeing it go. :P

Edit: Though for it effecting localization... Well, if he was an adult, it'd probably have been allowed; Killer 7 has a character who slits her wrists to reveal hidden paths. But this is a /teenager/, and while the whole Columbine thing has probably faded away enough that people won't care quite as much, it was enough to edit a part of XSII.

Quote from: "Thanatos01s2"
If I gave an 8 to something than I would give a reason, not just a quarter of a page review on how the cast isn't as good as the old one.

For an RPG where the story/cast are important, that would be very significant to what the score is. Plus sometimes there just isn't a very good reason: Phoenix Wright is great and doesn't really do anything wrong, yet I'd only give it an 8, and the same for Ys VI. Maybe she felt the same way.

As for SH:C's 10 to SH3's 8: May not be the same reviewer, or that things weren't mixed up enough to warrant keeping it a 10.

Edit: And again with editing right before I post. No, she was not complaining about the setting, she was noting how the setting was different. Different =! Worse /or/ better. Just different.

I didn't find the dungeons that great in the other two SH, so I guess they need a new level designer :p
SH:C dungeons were very maze like, with many paths and dead ends, very "old school". SH didn't really have a lot of big dungeons, but I felt they were better designed.

Agreed entirely. SH1 didn't have some amazing layouts, but they were entertaining enough to run around in, unlike SH:C's. :P

Quote from: "Thanatos01s2"
I still think an 8 is a bullshit score for her reasoning.

Then I want to know what you consider worthy of an 8. That's a very good score, and to me is fitting for games that're really good but either aren't very ground breaking, or are short of being /amazingly/ well done. And to me, that seemed to be perfectly good reasoning for giving the score it did.

Plus I don't care whether you're a fanboy of Shadow Hearts or not; some of the most respected people here are. I care about whether you're being an ass about it; calling a reviewer stupid or a 'dumb bitch' rather than simply disagreeing is a good example of being an ass.

More on topic though, IGN gave a review of the game and mentioned boring, linear dungeons and that the story pacing sucks. Bleh. :P

Oh, I forgot to mention this last post, but he did the art direction for Persona 2/Soul Hackers as well. In fact, the character designs reminded me of the ingame art for that (Soul Hackers) too, at least of what little I saw.

You know the kid with the blue hair in the pictures looked kind of familiar to me.  I then realized he looks like the love child between Spero and Grey from Stella Deus.

I knew that art style was familiar, but I attributed it to maybe being whoever did the in-game art for the characters in Persona 2. But when you said that, I did a google and sure enough, that same guy did the character designs for Stella Deus.

...Just because some magazine gives a game a zomg perfect score ^_^b is no basis to get so hyped up over it.  Be anxious about getting it and playing it for your own reasons.  Not others'.

$50 isn't an amount of money you can casually throw around, and you can use those opinions of others as a basis for whether or not you want to get something, and this does look good.

Nevertheless, 1. Famitsu scores have been debatable; I surely doubt Nintendogs is worthy of a 40/40 afterall, and 2. More important than what they think is WHY they think that way, and being in japanese, we can't have that either unless someone translates it. So... Hey, there's that demo with DQVIII! =P
11022  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 3 Unveiled on: March 08, 2006, 09:41:37 AM
While it looks decent enough, it doesn't look quite as good as the recent MegaTen games... And the kids look like they're 12. :P

Started up R&C3. Enjoying it, though it didn't have the same impact for me as jumping from R&C1 to R&C2. I blame the fact I waited several monthes between R&C2 and this, while I played R&C2 minutes after beating R&C1. :P

I think I'll be playing Radiata Stories next. I'm planning to just restart GrowIII since I was only about half an hour into it, while I believe I was 3 hours into RS or something, so that's definitely a higher priority.

Quote from: "Revchu"
I've always had this slight obsession with the silent protagonists in Chrono Trigger and Terranigma. Chrono and Ark kicked ass.

Ark seemed pretty talkative for a 'silent protagonist'. :P

I really dunno what to say, I'm fickle and tend to not have favorites. But if I have to list some... Cecil, since the whole paladin deal seemed really badass to me when I was 8, and even today he's noteworthy for being one of the few adult console RPG characters. And I like Mario and Link, despite being icons more than actual characters.

And ofcourse some of the no brainers - Snake and whatnot. If I can think of any I can really list, I'll post later.

Classic. I love PA and this only proves again that those guys dont take shit from anybody.


How does it prove that? Wouldn't it in fact be SOE who isn't taking shit from PA?

"Ha! I so ate your donuts!"

Actually, they did get a good zing in when they said that those donuts was the 'best thing SOE ever released'. :P
