I started Kingdom Hearts up again on expert. I'd like to go on to the second right after (and skipping CoM, cause it just doesn't interest me), but I'm guessing I'll be too burnt out by the time I finish the first game.

Not sure I like the song. Actually, it's not terrible but it isn't Burn My Dread. I really like the video though.

I don't really like it as much as Burn My Dread either, but it wasn't the terrible. I liked the action parts near the end of the video, but again, I liked the original's OP video more.

I'll also probably play it. I liked Fable 2 a lot (one of the few games I've ever felt really felt immersed in) so you can color me interested.

As long as the gender switch has a large enough impact on in-game events (babe hunt, hot springs, s-links, etc.) and is not just an avatar change, then I'll be very interested. I wonder if it'll include FES.

And also, way to skip Persona 2. I'm sure they'd port it if P1 does/did well enough on PSP, but I guess they're trying to put this port out ASAP, before the P3/P4 hype has died out (if it already hasn't).

Well, I don't like half of FFXII's playable characters. Specifically the half that doesn't include Balthier, Fran and Basch.

Tidus and Rikku from FFX never really grew on me. Roger from SO3 was crazy annoying and Fayt was pretty unlikable as well, but he pales in comparison to Vayne from Mana Khemia, whom I nominate as worst main character. All he did was just stand around and wait for someone to tell him what to do and didn't seem to do much outside of stare shyly at his feet and mumble something innocuous.

Time to lay our worries to rest!


Thank GOD!

My friends and I watched the first 17 episodes of Hajime no Ippo over the course of the past week or so, and it is, hands-down, easily one of the best anime I've ever seen; I can NOT wait to watch more.

So I "finished" Fable 2 last night:
What the hell was that? You didn't even have to fight Lucien in the end. I know they were going for something different, but...
It all happens too fast after getting reaver. The game just rushes to the confrontation with Lucien, and then there really isn't one!
Of course, the game doesn't really end. I suppose I could keep on trekking around doing side quests and shooting gargoyles, but the motivation is gone

The game WAS fun overall. It was still missing something, though. Definitely a 8/10 type of game, strictly for the adventuring. Story and characters would get half that.
Maybe if I had turned the safety off and started shooting all those idiots asking for a ring...

Yeah, the last third of the game felt absurdly rushed. But I agree, it was very fun for the adventurin'.

Counterstrike taught me everything I needed to know about inter-relationship communication.

Bought Munchkin Cthulhu, which inspired me to read more Lovecraft. I just finished "The Music of Erich Zann" and am now starting "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward." I'm thinking about starting a drinking game where you take a drink every time Lovecraft refers to something as either unspeakable or indescribable.

Playing Umineko. Well, more like reading, but I'm liking it so far. The music hasn't been as spooky as Higurashi's, and the characters aren't as memorable yet, but they're still fun. No repeat characters at least.
777  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst. Ending. Ever. on: July 13, 2009, 12:11:40 PM
Star Ocean:  Til the End of Time

I was enjoying the story and game in general until it started getting repetitive and unfortunately having an overly-large plot line that was abruptly ended.

Needless to say, this one game has kind of soured me on the Star Ocean franchise.

I totally agree, except for the souring part. The epic awfulness of the ending overshadows the plot twist IMO. Probably the most worthless-ass final boss fight ever too.

Honestly, you were fighting Luther to stop him from deleting the Eternal Sphere's data, only to have him DELETE IT when you beat him. Oh yeah, way to make me feel like I accomplished something.

I hate these discussions.

SMT Nocturne and Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines are two of my favorite RPGs.

It's silly to say one is exclusively better than the other. Each has merits and flaws, there's nothing to stop someone from enjoying both.

I feel the same. Baldur's Gate 2 is tied with Persona 3 as my favorite RPGs.

Finished up Mana Khemia and Star Ocean: TLH finally. Good thing Star Ocean's battle system is super fun, otherwise I would have thrown my controller at the screen in frustration. I also started and finished .hack//G.U. Vol. 1. I don't think I'll do all the tedious extra stuffs, and will just go on to the next game. It is a fun game though, I'm liking it.

To be honest, I liked Suikoden 4 a lot, but it's the only game where I can see legitimate reasons as to why people wouldn't like it.

I agree. 4 is easily the weakest, but it wasn't a bad game IMO, it just felt more lazy and unpolished when compared to the other entries. To be honest, I think 4's strategist was my favorite of the series (not counting 2 or Tierkreis, I haven't played either).
