That's pretty much it right there, pointless dicking around that has less than fuck to do what the plot to the point where the game has a plot but the plot has nothing to do with the game. It's almost as bad as a Lufia game if Lufia games didn't come with a plot at all.

I'm not too fond of The Third Birthday's story itself, but there are some interesting things to it.  It's nice to see things through a different perspective.  The gameplay is great, though.  I don't think the story deserves nearly as much hate as it's given, but people always hate on plot twists, no matter how good or bad they are.

While that's true to an extent, I think the bigger problem is how the twist basically existed more as justification for resetting Aya's personality than for something actually meaningful.

I also remember the retardedness of the battle trophies, the bonus gauge, the horrid MoonBase (helplessly watch yourself get plinked to death as your still warm corpse is juggled endlessly in the air), item creation (nuff said), whatshisface'smusic, the "WTF" plot twists, the "No seriously, WTF" plot twists, the "Wait. WTF? Am I even playing the same game anymore? WTFITS!" plot twists, and the "I hope to god whomever wrote this dies horribly of the worst cancer and AIDS because I am not loving this shit!" plot twists.

I sorta agree, but SO3 is still one of the best ps2 game I played last gen, yes the big twist turned me off big time.

Screw the plot twist, the first hour of the game has the Voyager Era Borg show up to totally curbstomp both the Federation and the Romulan Empire, and then, oh wait, you're now stranded in a JRPG for the rest of the first disk either helping the Ewoks overthrow some random tyrant, fail miserably at trying to save the staff chick from anime cancer (though it turns out to be a completely random lookalike instead and you're still stuck with the actual staff chick), help your side win a war with a country located not more than two minutes away (at brisk walking speed) that lasts all of three seconds before the aforementioned Voyager Era Borg show up just to nuke for lulz (and promptly get counter-nuked by the main character turned Super Sayain), look for random plot coupons in the hopes of deus ex-ing the Voyager Era Borg away, and fail miserably in saving the main character's father (and promptly serving up some revenge through the power of breakdance, hip hop style 'yo dawg'). And that's just the first disk. The second disk starts off on the MoonBase in the middle of End of EVA's ending, then you learn that you are Neo and then you promptly jump out of The Matrix and into Akihabara, and the rest of the game is spent trying to break into and kill everyone in Tri-Ace's headquarters.

The best part? The anime cancer is the part that gets the most focus out of everything in the game (you know, instead of the two wars going on in the immediate background, potential rescue missions needing to be hatched, or any sort of lead up to anything that might occur in the second disk instead of "Have some angels.", nevermind the complete and utter lack of Stars and Oceans involved in this game).


True! SO2 also had a problem with the item crafting skill taking forever to actually get useful. However, I just meant that, in theory, I prefer it when game systems are not operating in isolation from eachother.

At least is wasn't as prone to returning 1,000,000 gil wilted salads as SO3 was.

If I recall correctly the biggest bullshit SO3 sidequest (aside from any post game content like the usual Cave of Trials) was the Bunny Racing (an amazing feat considering that the entire game was solely designed to cure all but the absolute spergiest sperglords of their OCD). An exercise in pure monotony as you had to grind far too long races for an insignificant amount of points (like less than ten at the highest payout) for prizes that costs thousands of points to earn. You could influence the races but doing so was all but a guarantee of your time and money being wasted (especially at any level but the lowest ranked and yield).

I must getting old because I don't remember a thing about bunny racing, and I spent 120 hours on the game (a lot in the extra dungeon and grinding i mean creating weapon/armors)

There's an entire arcade dedicated to minigames in the 4D part of the game, including the cooking competition, the arena, a chess game, and the bunny races. I remember it because that was the part of the game where I just simply gave up on the whole goddamn mess.

I also remember the retardedness of the battle trophies, the bonus gauge, the horrid MoonBase (helplessly watch yourself get plinked to death as your still warm corpse is juggled endlessly in the air), item creation (nuff said), whatshisface'smusic, the "WTF" plot twists, the "No seriously, WTF" plot twists, the "Wait.

SaGa The Last Remnant

Was that a mistake or is there some connection between SaGa and Last Remnant I'm not aware of?

The Last Remnant is basically a SaGa game with a different name and more of an Ogre Battle style combat system to it.

Same design team, same inherent need of a guide to know how to not utterly fuck yourself over, and so on.

That aside, any word on my original query about individual purchases? I don't have an extra $70 lying around for me to throw at a bunch of games that I'm not likely to play any time soon.

Well I blame bad business practice on Cadbury's part the past couple of decades that led up to this fiasco

I blame those awful Eggs. I hear that eating them like cereal for breakfast is a good way to wake up in the US Senate or in bed with a coworker of the wrong gender.

Coincidentally, I read terrible webcomics.

Shit store didn't have Ys 1 & 2, nor did it have either pre-order bonus for TO or DQVI.

Ys I & II comes out next week, it WAS slated for this week but they didn't officially announce a date until earlier this month I think. Given the stiff competition this week I can't really blame them for holding it back a little bit longer.

Saw that this morning on RPGamer. Still doesn't excuse my having to travel cross town just to pick up my Slime plushie (though offering me a $5 discount on 4 Heroes of Light did mitigate my frustrations somewhat). At least I'm all squared away with that clusterfuck, now I just need to get through purchases of Ys 1 & 2, Radiant Historia, Legend of Heroes VI part 1, and the reprint of Super Mario All-Stars (also a 5thGen Pokemon for a sibling's B-Day gift) and I should be done with the worst of it this year.

I also prefer P3. P4 is good and all, but P3 was the one that made it all fresh. P4 just builds on it.

P3 has the better story, too. Much more story driven.

I'm nearing the end of P4 right now, and the story definitely picked up and got intense, but I also prefer P3 over P4. They're both excellent games. I hope P5 changing is everything again, but I have a feeling they're going to keep the S.Links and things of that nature.

Assuming they can ever move away from P3 rehashes and expansions.

Never  trust  reviews.

Fixed.

Seriously, only The Mother Fucking New York Times gave Nier anything more than a middling review. Nevermind certain nameless reviewers who spent an hour demonstrating their complete inability to look at a map for five seconds and condemned the game entirely upon their own failure as a gamer.

And then there was Deadly Premonition (especially when you consider how Heavy Rain was chosen over it in the field of engaging story telling and gameplay).

Don't we have this thread on the General Discussion Board? You know, the one stickied to the very top of said board?
3928  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: more SRW this time for psp on: February 17, 2011, 07:59:46 PM
This is still the most elaborate troll. Even more elaborate than Tales of Graces F coming over. There's no way that this cast list is real.

That said, this really has to be the most elaborate troll evar.
3929  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Sorry/ RPG graphics debate on: February 17, 2011, 07:38:27 PM
Graphics only matter in games heavy in fanservice (Dead or Alive, Bayonetta) stuff that's meant to be cinematic (Uncharted, Heavy Rain) or atmospheric (any horror game) Otherwise I couldn't care less. My PS2 is still the system I play the most (followed by my PSP DS and then my 360.) For the most part this gen has left me unimpressed.

Also in games that actually do something with them like Legend of Mana, SaGa Frontier 2, and Valkyria Chronicles.


Friend let me borrow it.  I like it a lot... I just hate Shepard's tone.  It's too easy to make him... retarded.  Giving half assed answers one second, then really serious ones the next, and it's all kinda stoic-sounding. 

That's up to you, as the player. You are doing that, not the game. The game gives you that freedom. I'm surprised you didn't go with a female Shepard. Her voice is great, especially for renegade, the way she delivers some of those lines is intimidating.

You say it so seriously.  I just don't like his voice - but I love making his face to look like a twat

Use WRPGers are a sensitive bunch around here. CDFN and I will hug it out and then talk about that table dancer in Afterlife for about 2 hours.

If you're playing on PC don't forget to turn on those nude mods.

I don't know, I prefer to use mods like Neverwinter Nights: Dances with Rogues where you're playing a female who's barely dressed, barely competent, and who sucks and blows a lot (of dicks).

In the pokemon world, I feel bad for the puppies and kitties who are tossed aside for cuter, colourfuller, name-saying pets that can breath fire and throw razor-leaves at the son of a bitch who tries to steal my stuff late at night.

Don't you mean the Houndours and the Meowths? Because Houndooms are actually pretty damn awesome (and yes, they can breathe fire too).
