8.9! Holy Fuck, that huge. Hell LA usually considers a low 7 to be a disaster.

Boy, I hope enough people watched Toyko 8.0 to know how to survive having the precept of two tectonic plates you're country is built over snapping like the chain used to tie an active jet engine down.

Of course this will probably lead to the inevitable sequel Toyko 9.0 once all of this settles down but that's neither here nor there.

This might be relevant to some people.


Additionally this for some looking for hilarity.

DQIX: Grounded up a pair of Vesta Gauntlets from Equinox. Now onward to Shogum and his Apprentice Gloves.
4609  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Squeenix turned down licensing offer for Blood of Bahamut. on: March 10, 2011, 03:08:49 AM
Additionally Blood of Bahamut was just a mediocre Monster Hunter clone except without the customization element that made the MH series popular in the first place, and that one of the monsters is a giant blue chick who you can strip for material to forge bigger swords. It and Sigma Harmonics were not worth it anyways so it's all a moot point. In fact only SaGas 2 & 3 are most likely the only games made by Squeenix within the last few years that we've actually missing out on thus far.

Still, if you can manage it, get V. It's easily the best of the trilogy and probably the best game in the series.

My only real question is what are their plans in terms of future localizations or at least where would their interests lie?

For example, 7th Dragon.

Or trying to get the rights to localize any of the SRW games like The Lord of Elemental, OGSaga Exceed, or either Queen's Blade or Gate.

Or would they be interested in teaming up with Atlus to localize Growlanser PSP?
4612  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst RPGS on: March 08, 2011, 07:02:42 PM
Some games deserve it for that, but get almost none.
Especially excellent ones condemned by video game media.

I mean games that had a lot of effort put into them but still suck anyway.

Also man what if they made a Wii remake of FFVIII and you had to do waggly things to pull off the limit breaks? That would make the dog fisting really weird.

No see, they'd just have you mash the auto-battle button and forward on the nuchuck while the game plays itself and you get to sit through the retarded plot and boring monologues. I guess limit breaks will be performed by holding the Wiimote slightly differently than before.

That said, I just don't know where the saddest part of this scenario lies. On the one hand, should Squeenix ever bother with the Wii for anything ever, nevermind a Wiimake of one of their pre-Squeenix PSX era RPGs (instead of the 3DS or the NGP) they wouldn't even hesitate to do this. On the other, there's already a game exactly like this on the Wii, and that said game came from Nintendo themselves (with help from Team Ninja).

Either I'm an optimist or a fool for asking but I'm thinking about picking this up soonish and I was wondering which stores carry this game as I don't want to have a repeat of the bullshit I went through with GameStop trying to get Tactics Ogre and DQVI.

I should also mention that I ABSOLUTELY have NO INTENTION of buying this online.

Welp, this experiment has been concluded. I gots mine and with almost no trolling from the peanut gallery either. Even if the blather was useless this still went far better than expected.

Since we're in the middle of a Falcom kick right now, and that DQ and Pokemon bookend things, and also the reappearance of Tactics Ogre long thought to be forever lost to the wheel of time, and speaking of time there's also a game about rewriting Historia Radiantly.

Thus I suggest that we rename this thread "Wait! You're not Final Fantasy! You're Return of the Game Journal, 2!"

Alternatively: "Return of the Game Journal: The Radiant Wheel of Black TITS of Revelation".
4615  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: March 08, 2011, 02:33:20 AM
Plus it would give more people a chance to remember that there were other LoH games released on the PSP way back when the PSP was still barely a year old.

What they should do it make note of it front and center on the box (or NOT known that this is the sixth game in the LoH series) that TITS stands alone from any bras prequels, so people don't think they need to start with the other trilogy to know what's going on in this one (which is all the more ridiculous when you consider that the first PSP LoH game released in the US was actually the fourth game in the series, and second of that particular trilogy).
4616  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst RPGS on: March 08, 2011, 02:07:37 AM
The most nonsensical part is not the orphanage scene, NORG, the Blair Witch Hunt, or the entirety of disk 4 that was nothing short of a a wacky monkey flying out of Madonna's butt.  No, the most nonsensical thing about the game is that Rinoa cannot tell the difference between boy and girl dogs.  See, Rinoa has a dog named Angelo.  Angelo is a she.  But she has a boy's name.  Which means Rinoa is either phenomenally stupid, never received "the talk" from dad, or both.  Giving that poor dog an identity crisis, plus the sodomizing limit break where she sticks her crossbow boomerang wingy-thingy (to quote Mooncalf) up Angelo's butt and launches her like a missile...

That, my friends, is why Final Fantasy VIII makes no damn sense.  Rinoa should be targeted by PETA.  Of course that confrontation will be as stupid as two bald men fighting over a comb. 

To be fair, the Dog Rocket Punch was pretty much the sole redeeming thing about Rinoa.

Also, I'm pretty sure Rinoa knew that Angelo was a female dog, after all it takes one to know one (also how else do you think she got that Dog Rocket Punch thing to work in the first place, it didn't involve no crossbow, boomerang, wingy-thingy, that's for sure).

My vote is on Madoka for MVP of the season. 2-chan also agrees.
If they don't mess up with the ending, that's going to be an incredibly good show. (anime mess up endings 95% of the time)

Considering it's competition, that's like saying that Lunar is the best JRPG to come out on the SegaCD.

That said.

@Dice: Were you seriously expecting something else coming from the guy who did a visual novel where the main character sees nothing but body horror among other things? With that said, it obvious that it gets worse.

For instance magical girls are little more than glorified liches, that become witches after succumbing to despair, in an existence of nothing but despair, all for the sake of aliens needing to harvest emotions to patch up the universe currently existing on borrowed time.

Obviously, don't read the code if you don't want the spoilers.

Basically I think most people hit a peak of maturity around like, 18 or 19. After that you start getting degrees in shit and your mind erodes to the point where the former learned eloquence is replaced by a constant stream of dick jokes and Care Bears fanfiction. And one day you wake up and don't even care that your wife nearly OD'd on Oxycontin. You're going to grow a beard, goddammit, and go live out in nature with your buddies.

Except that never pans out.

And you slowly die inside.

Speaking of which what would happen if you accidentally swallowed a pokeball containing a wailord and it like, opened, inside of you? Could you murder someone that way?

Why the hell would you wait until after 18-19 to grow a beard? You can grow one when you're like 14 or 15 if you would just put down that razor. Granted beards tend to get you in more trouble than not having one would, but the same could be said for wearing anything less than business casual or a three piece suit. But still having a beard means that you don't have to shave except for when you need to make your beard look less scraggly and lopsided, or when you have to trim your mustache so that it doesn't grow into your mouth or get into everything you eat, or when your girlfriend is getting seriously disgusted that you aren't shaving your back anymore, or when you have to make that unibrow back into eyebrows, or when you shave your feet and toes in the hopes of promoting more hair growth on your feet and toes to make yourself look even more like a hobbit than usual, or hands and fingers, or whatever, the point is that you don't need to shave as much as you would by not having a beard.

That said, I finally got Murdaw's map in DQIX and as well as a second silver orb out of Bramos. Additionally, I got a yellow orb out of Murdaw on my first shot, meaning that I can finally upgrade one of my top items into it's second form. Now my Hero Boots can have 5 more defense while continuing to sit in my inventory as Metal King Boots are far and away superior to any form of the Hero Boots.

"Ashley Riot is accused of murdering a Duke, but did he really do it? Find out as you play as Ashley and live out his life the week leading to the murder."

This is pretty much the worst description of a game I've ever seen. :P  Of course, I'm not sure you could adequately describe Vagrant Story with a couple of paragraphs, much less two sentences.

A little late to this but one phrase that immediately comes to mind to use as a description would be "Vagrant Story. Where you ARE the reinforcements!".
