Needs moar Disk 4 Butt Pants.

That said, I'll let you clowns figure out which one I'm specifically referring to.

Hint: It's not the spoony bard.

^Well that, and the lack of FE:DS2. But then again it could be a NoJ problem or something.

So modern rpg's are really short huh?

Chrono Trigger and Fallout 1 were both around 15 hours long.

Anyway I'm really trying to enjoy FFVIII but why did they give Quistis and instant death attack that works on bosses? Why did they give it to her on DISC 1?

Because the game expected you to forget about her like the plot did after disk 1 (well aside from making her look like an incompetent tart who cracks at the first sign of pressure hence why Squall is given the Matrix Gunblade of Leadership).

Of course why are you using anything but Card or Break to kill enemies is the bigger question.

"Safety detachment required prior to inchoate winder advancement. Do not activate coilwrap until a wait of 5 seconds prior to post pump nascency." - Aeris from Final Fantasy VIII

I don't recall seeing this one

She only says it after you bring her back in the fourth disk. Of course, to even get to the fourth disk you need to use strength on the truck and unmask Gogo (who's coincidentally Emperor Gestalt after falling off the Floating Island and will lead you to his secret treasure under the grand stairway (this is coincidentally another requirement to access disk 4)).

But wait, didn't Bladerunner 2.0 suck? Horribly?

Hope you were looking forward to hanging out in Kyoto again.

If you were looking forward to seeing something else get animated, too bad.

You mean Ocarina of Time, right? Or is there some third Zelda game for the N64 I don't know about?

He may be talking about the Zelda 64 prototype that eventually became OoT.

So far for VC/PSN services, we've been pretty well screwed in terms of getting RPGs or the like out of anything that wasn't already released here between 10-25 years ago.


....but if we got this, a lot of that would be forgiven (for the PSN at least, VC continues to fail forever in this regard).

I'm gonna go with, "I am Error."

If all else fails. Use fire.

Well I don't know about you, but I found this pretty amusing.

^Nice avatar/post combo there chief.

Xenoblade is still a lot of fun, though I'm getting a bit tired of those Nopons. Remember the Chu chus from Xenogears? They're kinda like that...

Is one of them crucified on a giant cross along with the rest of your party's giant robots? If not then they're nothing like the Chu-chu.

That said, Ultima Exodus. Christ, can't get anywhere without getting horribly murdered. Whoever had the bright idea to tie stat gains to shrines located in the boondocks of an alternate world which you can't get to without increasing enemy encounter levels until ships appear should be drugged out into the street and shot.

Also Moongates suck.

Phantasy Star 4.
FFT and the two FFTA games.

And a large quantity of RPGs as of late that aren't dungeon crawlers or SRPGs.
3882  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Greatest line in an RPG ever! on: August 13, 2011, 05:52:09 AM

Wearing a red shirt on the Enterprise is a bad idea. Being called Ted in an RPG isn't really that fatal.

And in The Next Generation I think if you're on Deck 16 you're not long for this world. It seems like whenever they'd get attacked Worf would announce heavy casualties on Deck 16.

What was on Deck 16 that made it so dangerous?

Nevermind that. Any time there's a battleship in an anime or a JRPG, you do not want to be on that third bridge (they're always losing that sucker).
3883  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda 25th Anniversary website is up and running, what's a Metroid? on: August 10, 2011, 01:25:31 PM
For the 25th anniversary, the Zelda collectors edition will consist of that GCN Zelda collection disk (not the OoT/MQ pre-order bonus that Windwaker came with, and also no bug fixes for games like Majora's Mask) a letter from Zelda, an 8 page artbook/developer interview book that'll get leaked long before the game hits the shelves, and at least two limited print runs.

On the upside, it'll have a decent box.

^It's made by the same people. That is all.

Bad direction? Minish Cap is the most on-rails Zelda game ever made (well, barring Spirit Tracks which literally involved train tracks). Though I will concede the fact that its easy to miss things to the point where its the only Zelda to feature a perma-missable upgrade (and a bug that can lock out a second item or shop, though I think it only applies to the PALand version).

Also if Link were any faster, he'd be able to roll dash from one end of Hyrule to the other in under five minutes.

Whatever, it's still one of the greatest 2D zeldas (including DS releases) made. I loved it and thought it was an instantly worthy successor to the Zelda franchise.

Haha I meant it's just not that good with hints, actual "direction".

I am loving this game though.

I'm not saying that the game isn't Zelda quality, but that its much more linear (due to its shortness) than the usual Zelda game. There's also a number of tedious puzzles and sidequests that causes the game to drag at points (like the top of the mountain or the clouds section).

That said, the copy image puzzles were fairly neat and the last two dungeons' bosses were actually fairly good fights. The tools were pretty okay too, if a bit limited.
3885  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Loose ends... the games we have not finished and should we? on: August 09, 2011, 10:40:03 AM
Grandia 2 because the plot just got offensively bad, Star Ocean 2 because I spent more time breaking the game than I would've needed to have actually played it, Star Ocean 3 because it's Star Ocean 3, and a bunch of others that I don't care to name at this point in time.
