11011  The Rest / General Discussions / All time favourite game characters. on: March 08, 2006, 01:06:02 AM
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

Yeah, we already have a thread, but that was not only made about the rating, but wasn't named properly anyway, so I'm going to kickstart it again with this, espicially since it just came out. 1up reviewed it, and I find it interesting/amusing how, while the script is in fact tuned down much from the DeJap translation, it's apparantly more faithful anyway. Even more amusing how the story is said to be more original than most of today's despite being over a decade old. :P

Some of you guys are such hypocrites.  I said PSM gave too weak of a review and it got a "high ranking" (8).  But it is okay to break down a review that gives too strong of a high rank. That is so typical.

Oh really? Here, let me quote you.
I just got my PSM today in the mail and the dumb bitch only gave the game an 8/10.

The very first line you said about this bullshit, and to me, that just shows you're pissy the new installment in your favorite series didn't get a higher score. Your attempts to point out 'what was wrong', outside of being too short, were weak anyway. You twisted what the reviewer said, and was upset it was compared to Covenant despite the fact that it's /needed/ for a review, as others like KeeperX noted.

And don't pull that 'I'm being discriminated against for liking series X' card either, your behavior would be obnoxious with anything from Final Fantasy to Shin Megami Tensei. I don't mind fanboyism, I just mind being an idiot about it, and when you're attacking people over not liking the humor or trying to dismantle a review for bullshit reasons, you count as being a /stupid/ fanboy.

As for the second review: Haven't given it a good look, so that can go either way.

i played the shadow heart 2 and i have to says it was petter good.....
i love the story ....do u think that shadow heart 3 have any thing to do with the story line of shadow heart 2.?

Screw 'do I think'. I KNOW it'll barely have anything to do with it. Also, this might be informative.

Edit: Also, I tend to think the magazines (outside of maybe Game Informer, I need to see more of their scores) and sites tend to be unbiased with genres on a whole, at least nowadays; the great action, sports, and RPGs alike will get 8s and 9s, while the crappy ones... Well, they'll get crappy scores.
11017  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: March 07, 2006, 04:09:29 AM
Managed to get around to beating DMC3:SE. It's R&C3 and either Growlanser III or Radiata Stories next.
11018  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Famitsu Poll - Best Game Ever - on: March 07, 2006, 01:25:32 AM
What the hell is Final Fantasy X doing at the top. The game's great, but it's nowhere near being my 'favorite game of all time'. Maybe it's just that a lot of people voted for that in their top ten, and since it was more frequent than any other game... Hey, number 1 spot. Still though, geez.

I thought the game was rated E+10?

I just said that. God, I hate it when people improperly name topics. :P
11020  Media / Single-Player RPGs / debate about Square-Enix on: March 06, 2006, 07:17:28 PM
I think if they were just waiting and hoping, the story would've been left open deliberately for all the milking. I don't mind if they milk it as long as it produces some great stuff; so far though, DoC doesn't sound too great, we know very little about Crisis Core, and Advent Children's biggest plus is that it was really really flashy. And Before Crisis is a cellphone game, so I'm convinced I'll never play it unless it gets a PSP or DS port.

I still think they're a good company, but honestly they just don't seem to be making as much great stuff as before. There's fewer standout unique IPs, and some of their follow-ups have been subpar (namely M:SL). Still, they look to be making a strong comeback, so I may change my opinion in a year or two.

Edit: Actually, I want to throw in that the merger did in fact have a negative effect - but not in the development area. Rather, the translation department: We have two big companies merged together, but not two merged US subsideries; I'm not sure how much more would've been translated though, and I heard they only had something like 10 employees, but I imagine we'd have gotten DQV had at least some of the management been kept around.

Plus Year end isn't limited to just December; it could be anywhere from September and December, which is the last third of the year. Hell, as far as games go the holiday season starts in September anyway.

Actually, I'm under the impression that Nintendo took it upon themselves to translate the game since Namco wouldn't touch it - and given all their games of the last several years, it should be a damn good translation. :P

Quote from: "Dade the Ass McLaren"
I would MURDER for a PSP MegaTen/Persona game.

Seriously....point and I'll kill it.

LHX looks disposable, so go kill him.

I really oughta play through TLJ sometime - I would've earlier, but this PC has some audio skipping that annoys the hell out of me. Maybe I'll try it on the other PC later.
11024  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of Phantasia E for Everyone on: March 06, 2006, 04:19:49 PM
I should also note that for the content, only Fantasy Violence is listed. So we can dash out cursing at all and other stuff, I suspect.
11025  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of Phantasia E for Everyone on: March 06, 2006, 03:40:38 PM
Note: It's not E, it's E10+. Which is what AI2 has with all the same content that the first one had. Plus, yeah, DeJap exagerrated. I think the only significant change will be
They don't get piss drunk on the boat ride

Edit: Thanks to Hidoshi for pointing out the typo. :P
