4081  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Let's design the most cliche RPG story ever on: September 15, 2010, 02:49:33 AM
Sorry to interrupt your silly fanfiction again, but WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT!?!?!

What kind of trashy catfight scene was that? Where's the tearing off of each other's clothes? Where's the rolling around in the conveniently placed puddle of mud? Where's the looser falling face first into a strategically placed oversized cake?

Seriously, what kind of cliche is this if you're willing to let a catfight go without any kind of fanservice. Not even a goddamn glass of water to the face or any pulling of the hair. The only cliche throughout that whore scene was people knocking each other out with a bottle to the back of the head in a single blow.

I can understand the lack of a desire to shove overtly political or environmental issues into this before (since there's always time to shoehorn a blatant down with baby-eating democrats or save the trees message), but nobody passes up a good cat fight without taking the opportunity to insert some kind of trashy fanservice unless they were trying to subvert the cliche.

That was simply awful and I demand that you people go back and do it again. And do it right this time too.

It was basically safe to ignore about a fifth off of whatever system NP was using to score games with at the time (though there are the occasional exception of two every so often).

Kinda like this site but here its better to ignore the first 50% of any given score rather than 20%.

Also the Pokemon thing was graded with the early to mid 90's mindset of nobody wanting to play RPGs (and the anime had yet to hit the airwaves). Go figure that those two games basically carried Nintendo through the N64 era in the US singlehandedly (save for when the occasional Zelda or WWF (as it was known as back then) game came out).


Suikoden II's story definitely deserves more than it got, but this is why we tell people to broaden their horizons and check out multiple sources for their information rather than just one guy.

But. It didn't star a brooding hero, an amnesiac, or a guy with multiple personality disorder. It didn't feature twenty left field plot twists per disk or even more than one disk. It didn't feature a plot of over 200 playing hours with about 180 of those hours consisting of boring fetch quests. It didn't feature a plot of a simple rebellion against the evil polluting empire turned vision quest to kill god. Nor did the plot reveal the origins of humanity as provided by an anime alien civilization that was destroyed, locked in unevolution, or simply crashed a forgotten cargo ship onto the planet like a hojillion years ago. And the plot wasn't even entirely centered on the main character's awkward attempts at trying to fall in love with the anime magical girl/princess while he and a bunch of plebs go chasing after some unspecified evil that's simply just misunderstood in its quest to cast everything into oblivion.

Seriously? You expected Suki II's plot to compare to that? I scoff! SCOFF!!! at your silliness.

Dear God.  It's like...it's like they want to make money on their games or something.  Bunch of jerks, wanting to feed their families.

Wait? That's not the Sega I know! They used to be all about pride and not giving a fucking shit of anything outside of Japan or this thing called business sense. What the hell happened in this last decade?

CC - Macha

How is she, in any way, manly? She's more motherly than anything (especially given the fact that she's a mother of two other characters in the game).

There aren't really any manly females in CC (unless there's one I failed to recruit or something). For CC's manly males there's always the Luchador Priest, AW Fargo, General Viper, Dario, Garai, Zappa, Norris, and even Miguel (despite the fact that he's dressed as some Norwegian yodeler). The only problems with these characters are that they are not the main character and very few of them are developed beyond two sentences to begin with.
4085  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars L on: September 15, 2010, 12:56:24 AM
No. Just like CG and Macross Frontier, TTGL is too new to have been in a SRW game yet. There's typically a grace period for series from when they aired to their inclusion in an SRW game to avoid spoilers for people who haven't gotten around to watching the show yet.

Also I think there's some licensing issues as well that will be keeping TTGL out of an SRW game for a long while to come.


i think code geass would be difficult to fit into an srw game unless they made a srw game dominated by code geass.

Nah. Code Geass would be as hard to implement as any given Gundam or Macross series would be. SRW games are easily long enough to accommodate the plots of multiple series.
4086  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Have you ever played a Visual Novel? And why not? on: September 13, 2010, 06:37:41 PM
The only visual novels I play are the ones with the naked chicks in it.

Well that and the occasional Phoenix Wright game.

No Farnsworth, no dice.




Seems so appropriate for this board.

Have you seen some of the crazy shit Megaman does?  Both Rock and Volnutt are manly as fuck.  Which is pretty damn impressive because they're both children/robots.flinch or give a single centimeter.  Manly is when you might be utterly powerless to do anything, and yet you do something anyway just to spit in the face of fate.

You need to get rid of that avatar.  It makes me remember that X isn't in MvC3 =\

X is the least manly Megaman though.  He's ALWAYS whining about having to fight.

Plus he got overshadowed in his own series by a guy with long flowing luxurious hair, lightbulb boobs/nipples, and is most remembered for either dying A LOT or shouting the name of his now dead girlfriend in the gayest tone possible.

And then they replaced him outright with some clone-o-matic noob punk while he gets regulated to navigator/bridge bunny for a game.
4089  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Men who play as female characters. on: September 11, 2010, 08:46:57 PM
I am a man who plays as male characters so I can watch their ass the entire time. There aren't many worth watching, but a few.

To be fair, it's pretty hard to see dat ass through dat armor.


Currently playing through DQIX with my all dude party clad in nothing but Muscle Belts and Boomer Briefs because all bitches and ho's are sluts unless they are covered from head to toe because I am totally secure in my sexual orientation.

Also they can only use fists except in the case of those hand drills because nothing's more manlier than MAXIMUM PENETRATION!!! (save for chariot riding penis monsters) and I'm as straight as the Colorado horizon.

/douchebag


Frankly, I don't see what the big deal is. Most of those crazy guys probably just want to be on the other side of the fence because the gr(eat )ass just seems better to them (also, they can't participate in lesbian lovefests no matter what they do).

Besides I don't really care who I play as because nobody has figured out how to write in a video game yet.

I've been rushing through DQV as fast as possible so I can jump to DQIX. I'm having a lot of fun with it. I love having monsters on my team. I wish you could recruit more. There's so many un-recruitable monsters.

I'm anticipating the release of the remake of DQVI too.

There are plenty of recruitable monsters given the game style. Just take a look at your beastiary to count how many monsters are there left to recruit.


DQIX: The grinding/side-plot continues.

MP2: = Finished. Out of the two playthroughs, this one reached 100% in both items and scans.

Solitaire: Top Score = 8989, Time = 84 sec.

It's been a slow week (but at least I now know why I needed the Captain's Hat by the end of the first day).
4091  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of the decade on: September 11, 2010, 06:56:38 PM
Now that's not fair. There isn't much of anything to FFXIII outside of the shiny anime.
4092  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy announced for PSP. on: September 11, 2010, 06:54:31 PM
*sigh* SE must think they are so clever with these names they think of for their titles. Anyways, the story doesn't even begin to bother me(it does SUCK A LOT), because it's supposed to be a fighter. On that note, the game is horrible compared to any other fighter on any current system. You can't compare it to the Capcom or Namco fighters on the PSP that's for sure, and the only people I can imagine liking this to any extent are huge FF fans anyways, so it probably doesn't matter if the gameplay sucks. As for me, there's plenty more for me to get excited about than yet another forgettable SE(a "fighter" no less lol) title that does nothing to help their generic image as of late.

Obviously, this is all based on the first one. But do I, for even a second, think the sequel will change any of that? Haha, hell no.

Cross-postin' from teh 3rd Birthday thread to suggest that Aya will be in this game and will include her destructable clothing.
4093  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: September 11, 2010, 06:19:04 PM
been trying a bunch of (mostly) fanservice shows and none stand out except maybe a few
also started Now and Then, Here and There
something tells me this is going to be friggin epic from start to finish

If Epic = Depressing As Hell, then yes.
4094  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Who is the most manliest JRPG hero? on: September 11, 2010, 06:14:36 PM
Lufia 2's protag Maxim (either version actually). One of the few JRPG protags to actually get the girl in bed.

Others include DQV's protag, the many protags of PS3's 1st and 2nd gens, and so on...

Also SaGa 2's main character (will fight gods, demons, and security systems with nothing but his bare fists...and machine guns...and rocket launchers...and tanks...and while in a powered armor...and ect...).
4095  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy announced for PSP. on: September 08, 2010, 07:44:34 PM
Lets hope Celes and Tifa make it into this version.
