Hey. Two dick threads in one day.

Now that's the kind of activity I've come to expect of this place.

Well that didn't take long.

Oh well. Here! Have a far more interesting story.

It ensaddens me whenever I remember that I can't play any of my old SuperNES carts until I either fix or replace my controllers. :(
5044  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Grandia Series on: January 28, 2010, 08:18:54 AM
I liked Grandia II but its "RELIGION IS EVIL" theme could have been delivered with a little more subtlety.

Are you trying to imply that there was any subtlety employed at all (or for anything within the game for that matter)?
5045  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: XBOX 360 RPGs on: January 28, 2010, 08:00:53 AM
I recommend:
Mass Effect
Fallout 3
The Last Remnant (though I played it on PC and recommend you do as well if you can)
Dragon Age Origins (same as the above, but I own the 360 version of this as well and it's great on the 360 too)
Blue Dragon
Tales of Vesperia

Actually, that PC statement could apply to the games above too (ESPECIALLY Mass Effect, though 2 runs fine), leaving only the ones below for consoles. Even Borderlands since that sounds like it works better on the 360 over the PC/PS3.

Actually I would simply recommend skipping the 360 version of TLR. Its a good game (if you're into games like Ogre Battle and the SaGa series) but the PC version fixes a lot of the technical issues that plagued the 360 version along with addressing other issues like how many leaders can you make/have at one time and so on.

I should note that the front page article of Nuga-Cel is incorrect. Its only been out for half a year now. Not five years.
5047  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Are you going to upgrade your DS/DSi to the DSi XL? on: January 27, 2010, 05:17:10 PM
I'm going to hold off on an XL (barring some catastrophe) as I had just gotten an DSi to replace my broken DSlite.
5048  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Grandia Series on: January 27, 2010, 05:08:40 PM
Only played 2. Aside from the battle system I found it mind numbingly cliche.
5049  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal XX - Sharpened Pencil Midnight Bathouse on: January 27, 2010, 05:06:53 PM
At level 39 apiece, I finally cleared the level 7 Gauntlet in M&L3 (11 levels below the recommended level). I'm going to set this game aside for now since I don't want to gouge out my DSi's touch screen trying to score a perfect 100 on the puzzles.

Dragon Quest V: Trying to farm gold in that tower in the south west. They're almost useless, but I want to get some Falcon Knife Earrings for my wife so she can do something worthwhile instead of casting Oomph on my hero. Plus, I like them for metal slime killing for obvious reasons.

I thought one of the slot machines in Fortuna was "loose," according to one of the NPCs in the prison there. But after save/loading five times and losing 3000 tokens every time, I don't care to waste my time with it now. I'd rather get exp while I do it, so, tower it is.

Still don't know where metal slime kings are. I guess I'll put my hazmat suit on and hit up gamefaqs.

Sorry to say, but the only place where I encountered them was in the bonus dungeon (although the final dungeon might have them too). That said, they're nastier than other versions since they like to cast Chance which can potentially screw you over if you're unlucky. If you're looking for a good weapon to slay MKSs with for your wife, then a poison needle is by far the best option. The chance to instant kill is far more effective than doing two HP worth of damage at most to them. Ultimately though MKSs are not the best way to grind for EXP. Not that its a bad thing to off one or two of them, but its not a good idea to rely on them that much either.

As for the casino itself, aside from a couple of Metal King Swords and the T'n'T boards there's very little to get from them. Falcon Knife Earrings aren't nearly as good as they were in IV due to the lack of Alena and her absurdly high strength and luck stats. Also, as far as human characters are concerned, all the wives are pretty lousy. Nera has the best magic of the three but Madachen is better still, the new wife has the least crappy equips (including a better alternative to Falcon Knife Earrings) but she still frail as hell, and Bianca's the average between the other two. I wouldn't bother keeping any of the wives in the main party unless I had no better alternatives.

A good place to grind is out on the field of the underworld. The enemies there are fairly rewarding and you can occasionally run into a swarm of metal slimes or the odd liquid metal slime. If you're grinding on the tower to Zenithia keep an eye out for King Cure Slimes. They're the best healers of the game and are quite rare too (they're probably the most difficult enemy to recruit in the game).
5050  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Agarest war is getting close!(Now is not) Next year, for 360 and ps3 on: January 27, 2010, 03:32:44 PM
as for me im waiting to see if they will do something crazy for ps3 digital download :D

The PS3's incentive is that you don't leave embarrassing evidence to the fact you own the game.

The really naughty limited edition:


OK, that video is just... seriously, WHAT. THE. FUCK?!

Unless you're talking about the limited edition, where its incentive is that you'll have plenty of embarrassing evidence to the fact that you own the game.

Also, I'm pretty sure that the video in that link has been posted once in this thread already and probably more times in other threads.
5051  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Idea Factory: how do these hacks stay in business? on: January 27, 2010, 03:12:06 PM
I really can't help but feel that IF == Gen'eric.

Btw OP; You forgot Nuga-Cel from that list.

Dragon Quest V: Fuck the last boss holy shit I need to level up for days to finish this game. I managed to recruit a grand dragon, but he's only level 6, and just now gained his first strength bonus––which was a +6, but whatevz...

The final boss only requires your MC to be about level 40 to beat him. Parry should be level 35, your Grand Dragon can get away with being level 10 (give him either the Sage's Stone or that staff that casts free Midheals and that staff that casts free Zings), and the rest should be about level 30 (give or take depending on what is in your party). Also don't forget to stock Elven Elixirs and Yggdrasil Leaves. Also also don't forget to use Insulate, Oomph, and maybe the occasional Kabuff. Also also also try to equip armor that reduces damage from spells and/or elemental effects.

The general strategy is to have the MC be your DPS, Parry be your primary support, whoever has the Sage's Stone to use nothing but that, and the rest should be for general support. The only time that the MC should do something other than attack is if you're behind in your healing and you need an emergency Healall thrown in someone's direction, otherwise try to keep him Oomph'd and alive. Parry should make sure everyone's Insulated, its his top priority and nothing else should come before it (unless you REALLY need to Multiheal). Otherwise Kazing anyone who drops (then follow up with an Insulate) and Multiheal whenever everyone's HP is looking low. Debuff everyone if the boss Oomphs himself. And if he has absolutely nothing else to do have him take a swing at the boss. It is imperative to make sure that Parry has MP at all times though. Again, whomever you gave the Sage's Stone to should do nothing but use it constantly. If the fourth person is a high level mage focus on buffs like Oomph or Kabuff, then try to sneak in a Kafrizzle every once in a while. Otherwise have him/her/it focus on healing whomever looks the most hurt.

Namco can be as thick-skulled as Nintendo when it comes to localizing  games sometimes.

Namco's worse really. Usually with Nintendo you can understand WHY (yes, even with Mother 3) and if a series is firmly established here they'll likely localize future titles. In the case of Namco it's a crap shot with each Tales game, and you can pretty much just give up on more niche games (especially RPGs) unless they're actually feeling nice enough to license them out to someone.

Nevermind that Nintendo is actually pretty decent at localizing if they get around to it versus Namco which is pretty loving terrible at it (or inconsistent at best). Just look at ToP and the PSP LoH games (they couldn't even get the order of those games right).
5054  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: January 22, 2010, 09:55:24 PM
Not very impressed. Burg is even smaller than before, the voice acting is mediocre at best, and the OP song has no flow at all.

And I swear some of these lines are DIRECTLY from Working Designs' localization. Victor has good reason to be annoyed.

Maybe, but I've read the Lunar PSP thread on NeoGF, and WOW does Ireland sound insane. He sounds like only HE can do justice to the series and only HE can provide the VERY BEST care and everyone else sucks. It was kind of bizzare.

Somebody should go and remind him that he's still got that deal going on between Gaijinworks and Sunsoft (+ Telenet's remains) that he should take care of before worrying about Lunar (and not "take care of" in just the "lets host a sweepstakes for Blaster Master's VC release" way either).
5055  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Sands of Destruction Release Topic on: January 22, 2010, 12:16:13 PM
Its been out for over a week now in the US (maybe not Canada though).

That said I've been seeing banner ads for that anime they made for this game. Has anybody watched it yet? And if so is it just generic schlock or is it really bad?
