WTF happened to this thread?!

Edit: and I don't mean the feather talk, I mean all pages except the last one disappearing.

They went over here.

The halfassedcape subject is a far better one than constant allusions to FFX-2.

I figured she was just halfassing Lenneth's outfit.

Puns are the lowest form of humor, next to Carrot Top.

Puns are more like sharp wit rather than straight comedy, especially when done well.

At the very least it's far and away better than mindlessly hurling a fucking shitload of swears or shit, fart, and penis jokes at people like a lot of stand ups/various AS(s) programs do.

A lot of times the difference one level can make could change a boss fight from an exercise of anal rapeage to manageable.

Beyond that, treat them like Megaman bosses. Go in a few times just to find out what to watch for and when to choose to go on the offensive or defensive. Remember you don't have any healing items, the number of mistakes you can make per boss fight is limited.

It's definitely a sequel, though a chapter where you play as Fang and Vanille in Oerba before it is destroyed would be a nice adition, they could show us Pulse before the events of the main game and then jump in time and continue the story after the main game, it could be a prequel and a sequel! Man, I'm a genius.

I highly suspect that it will actually star Lightning, Vanille, and some new chick as they fly around Pulse collecting Pulseariums and Dress Pulses that let them play dress up on the fly (since if they don't they take costume damage and nobody wants that) all the while visiting hot springs, performing J-Pop concerts, and competing with a rival all female group of bounty hunters by massaging them for the sake of gathering clues on how to save their beloved Frocobo and the meaning behind this mysterious person who looks like a lot like Lighting save for short blonde hair fighting tentacle demons who seems to be involved with the Frocobo somehow.

Welp, I just read the plot synopsis and you guys were right on the money back on page 15 of this thread.

Massive spoilers for the plot:
Aya now having PE2's Eve's power (and the mind of an adolescent) is explained that she doesn't nor ever gets Eve's power because Aya is not Aya but Eve. The glass shards that form the tentacle monster's body is Aya and this was set up by that well dressed evil looking guy because he's the well dressed evil guy. Eventually Eve goes back in time to the wedding to successfully body snatch Aya's body then put a bullet into Eve/Aya's head so that nobody can use her body for evil anymore.

The entire point of the game is for Aya/Eve to kill Eve/Aya. Character Assassinated!

'i got her peas'

nevermind :((((((((((((

And now you know why I pretty much SPELLED OUT my pun.
3954  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan's Games of the Year on: January 15, 2011, 01:12:15 AM
The answer to this is simple.

Not enough numbers.

It's pretty much the sole reason why the Zelda series isn't considered an RPG and yet games like Secret of Mana and Illusion of Gaia are. Similarly why the 2D Metroids aren't RPGs yet the Metroidvanias are. A more modern example would be why FFXIII is considered an RPG while Night Trap isn't.

Apparently, RDR didn't have enough numbers, but yet ME2 did hence it's DOMINATOR!!! achieve over the rest of this this year's chaff. Heavy Rain is just in a completely different kettle of fish.
3955  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan's Games of the Year on: January 14, 2011, 08:19:33 PM
Heavy Rain is a graphic adventure, no doubt about it.

Eh. I found myself preferring Deadly Premonition over Heavy Rain, but then Deadly Premonition was more Majora's Mask-ish with some Resident Evil 4-ness slapped on for the requisite action segments than the QTE-a-thon Heavy Rain was.

This thread is no phun.

With ME2 I keep wondering where that line between what is and what isn't an RPG is.

That said, gotta lol at P3P tying the PSP runner up category with Y's 3. Nothing otherwise to say except that what the fuck is Golden Sun doing in the DS runner up category? It's basically Golden Sun: The Next Generation right down to the exact same 'go buy part 2' ending, and I can guarantee you that when part 2 comes along you'll find out that your part 1 party were propagating the destruction of the world by hindering the guys who are actually trying to fix it and the rest of the plot threads from part 1 will be completely forgotten. DQIX or Lufia: CotS both would've been better choices in my opinion.

Everything else though is exactly as I suspected (except the Wii, but fuck the Wii). Both SMTs won out on two different categories, Mass Effect 2 was considered enough of an RPG, New Vegas and Nier both got their props, and Y's Seven won top PSP for being completely awesome (even the plot which is something that I should hate for being as predictable as it is but can't for some reason) otherwise it would have gone to P3P.

Gotta say though, 2010 was both one of the most hyped and most underwhelming years in RPG history.

Also note that basically any fan summary is going to be 90% fanon and only 10% based on the actual game. If you read a fan summary and felt like you missed everything, it's probably because the summarizer is insane.

That's because they keep trying to tie it in with all the compilation crap and or Cloud's appearance in FFT.
3959  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest VI appears on: January 14, 2011, 03:17:33 AM
Yet one more reason to get it day one beyond it vanishing off the face of fucking earth like V apparently did.

Hopefully I'll have enough money leftover from getting Wheel of Fortune, Hair Metal Pack, and maybe Radiant History (assuming it's even half as good as it's potential suggests) for this.
