Ok, back on topic.

From what I've read in interviews, FF13 will allow you to control one character at a time but you can switch between characters as you want. That tends to be how Action RPGs like Rogue Galaxy work. In fact, FF13 looks like an action rpg that just uses menus to allow you to quickly switch up combos. I rather like it a lot.

Not to mention the music is fantasic.

From the music I have heard, it really is great. I only hope that the speed of all the characters remain the same as you shuffle through them. I haven't played much new games lately, but I remember hating switching between characters years ago because one character was ridiculous fast and one was slow as molasses. FFXII did a "good" job with the speed, but I still didn't like the automated gameplay. :-p
1307  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What makes RPGs [an] Epic? on: April 20, 2009, 10:15:42 PM
What characteristic of an RPG dignifies if it is an epic or not? This crossed my mind when I was reading an article linked over in the Xseed Lost Muramasa Publishing Rights Thread. I'll just post it below so you don't have to go to the site. It's from IGN if you haven't read the other thread.

Quote
April 20, 2009 - Fans eagerly awaiting the American release of Muramasa: The Demon Blade should keep their eyes peeled for some new publishing news in the near future. First, IGN has learned that XSEED Games, formerly set to debut the title stateside, will no longer be handling distribution. The company released a statement to IGN confirming this news this morning.

      XSEED Games confirms that it is no longer involved with the North American release of Muramasa: The Demon Blade. XSEED Games and Marvelous had previously announced the game as part of the initial line up between the two publishing partners. We firmly believe in the product and will look forward to seeing it release in North America. We enjoy and respect our relationship with Marvelous, and are committed to working together to deliver an amazing line up of games in the US including the highly anticipated Little King's Story, the epic RPG Arc Rise Fantasia and Suda51's intriguing mystery adventure Flower, Sun, Rain.

I'm not so much questioning the game's status of being "Epic" or IGN's choice of word there, rather I just want to know what you think makes a game an "Epic"? I see the word "Epic" everywhere way too much and I'm beginning to lose respect for the word.

Nom Nom Nom.

Really entertaining to watch, but I'm pretty sure that must have cost a bit to have 1300 pictures developed, or the buying all the materials to develop his own.

Fun anyways.

A $100,000 horse dying at a polo match and then collapsing on a small child.

As serious a matter as that is, it just sounds funny no matter how much I read that statement.
1311  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Your Favorite RPGs and Why on: April 19, 2009, 11:27:03 PM
Growlanser II: Enjoyed giving me the option of overthrowing the kingdom I so respectfully fight and defend. Always been a fan of overthrowing my own kingdoms. :)

Wild Arms II: Enjoyed the music and enjoyed the puzzles.

Grandia: The music if anything. Amazing.

Final Fantasy Tactics: first game I ever clocked over 100+ hours on. I don't know whether to be proud or ashamed of that achievement.

Final Fantasy VI: I liked the cast of characters.

Chrono Cross: Lol, run away from boss battles? What silliness. Enjoyed the game, not so much the number of characters obtainable. Too much.

Magna Carta: I'm lying through my teeth about this game.

Summon Night 1 & 2: Nice story and weapon system.

Eternal Sonata: Game about my favorite pianist and some of the songs were very nicely done, especially one that was Chopin's piano pieces arranged with orchestra. That was cool. Can't wait to give my lecture on him this week or next.

Secret Of Mana: Good game.

Suikoden III: I liked the story and enjoyed the game, especially scouting all the characters later on. Looking to pick it up again for another run. Good times, good times.

Tales of Eternia: It was fun and I enjoyed the battles.

Tales of Vesperia: It's like an empty, but beautiful girl. easy on the eyes and not so much in the content.

There is definitely more games, but this will do for now.

Meeeeeeeeeeeeeh,

I'll possibly give it a go during the summer. I like giving indie rpgs a try every now and then. Who knows, I might actually not stop 1 hour into the game.
1314  Media / The Soundroom / Re: My Songs on: April 18, 2009, 11:55:05 PM
Haha, lol wut?

That's all I can say about that. It was entertaining at least.
1315  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Final Fantasy Piano Collections? on: April 18, 2009, 11:52:36 PM
I'm a fan of playing Chocobo themes from any Final Fantasy on piano. I don't care much about other pieces that are transcribed for piano. The only exception is Battle on the Big Bridge Theme from FFV, or Gilgamesh's theme for those who remember it that way.

Meeh on the myspace, might as well throw Xanga into the picture.

Not only a tree, but a forest?
1318  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Site / Re: new site layout/design on: April 13, 2009, 12:12:02 PM
The Good: I like the larger News banner. The design doesn't bother me at all, especially if the content is still there. The ads are quite ridiculous, but working on a game site, that is offline right now, they are a complete necessity.

The Bad: Location of ads. They just seemed clumped together.

Other than the ads location, the new layout is just fine, especially done when working a regular job. Hope to see new changes.
1319  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: suikoden question on: April 12, 2009, 09:46:28 AM
I never played IV, but heard stormy night stories about the game. I only played Suikoden III and liked the game. Possibly I have bad taste or need to expand my horizon on Suikoden games?
1320  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: would you say the older you get, the less fun games are on: April 12, 2009, 09:43:16 AM
My mom used to play some Castlevania in the day and Donkey Kong Country series. Right now her obsession is Mario Kart Wii.

It's a fun game, but she still can't beat me when I have the classic dragster on Star Road.
