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).

Now that's not fair. There isn't much of anything to FFXIII outside of the shiny anime.

*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.

If Epic = Depressing As Hell, then yes.

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...).

Lets hope Celes and Tifa make it into this version.

God DAMN. This really is an Ultimate version.

^This =/= Truth.

Vannlie and or Sarah are not getting a school girl outfit.

Topic revival =/

For once, I'm actually glad I don't have a girlfriend... because I can't see myself explaining this to most of them:

(SPOILER - You get to see some of the cast, nothing too special if you've been hunting the news about the game)
(No, there's no actual pornography... but it's a lot more ecchi than 1 and 2 combined)


Pretty nice 3D for a first time o_O and look at the background for a bit too, it's awesome.

Lol at the last one (though I'm disappointed at the moe-ification).

Otherwise, thanks for the not-porn.

Easily Meis Triumph from Thousand Arms.  He dates every girl in his party and even keeps girlfriends in multiple towns.  He's a playa pimp!  A lot of RPG characters talk about being womanizers (i.e. Irvine, Zidane, Edgar) but Meis walks the walk and will steal everyone's girlfriend.  He even gets thrown out of a house by the husband of a cougar wife who hanky-pankies with him yet still maintains a satisfied grin.  Plus he's not an emotionally distraught whiny drama queen.  Okay, he's a little whiny in the beginning, but he gets over himself after studying with Jyabil- the manliest mentor who makes Meis manly. 

Meis, like every other Harem Sausage, falls into one of two defining catagories, a doormat or functionally retarded (in Meis's case, he's the former). So far the manliness harem protagonist I've seen in video games is the main character of AT3 on account of being willing to go into battle in naught but one of those sumo wrestler's loin wraps. Also he uses a transforming drill spear as a weapon which counts for something. I guess Riveria's Ein could be an exception given the fact that Ein is a dick. (Oh and Jyabil could've been replaced by a rock and nobody would've been the wiser.)

As for Cid and Barret, only Cid really counts given that he gets to be the leader for a short while. Barret could've died along side Aerith and would have had about the same amount of overall relevancy that he had while alive. Most FF characters fall into this where the party will head to the next destination X where X = random party member's region of origin - plot relevant regions. The typical formula works out to be...

For (X = RPM - PR)
  RPM > 0
Next (X + 1, RPM -1)

Of course there are anomalies like in FFVIII where destination X is shared by everybody save for Rinoa and flashback characters such as Laguna, and is plot relevant (kinda?). Or FFX's Auron who is a douchebag dramaqueen by hording the big plot twist for himself until after the fact than says that he's known all along (then laughs at you under his breath for making you enact a faux drama fueled quest for absolutely no goddamn reason whatsoever).

Too bad SRPG heroes don't count because some of FE's characters and many SRW originals could easily fit into the manly badass roles (and some of the females too).

And they STILL don't have Code Geass mechs in SRW. What are they waiting for?

A non-lovely SRW game.

That said, you can always check them out in Another Century Episode: R (which is an Ace Combat take on SRW)...or not given what I've heard about that game (Gurren mk2 being one of the most useless mechs in the game thanks to being overly reliant on the tension system but without any real means of gathering said tension).

At least we're getting Frontier in this one (which was given anyways due to Branpesto having already shelled out for the license for ACE:R).

The other big problem that I have with L that I failed to mention in my previous post is the over reliance on the anime clips that play during attacks. Just like in K not only do they drag out even the most basic attacks with these lengthy cutscenes (and generally making it a pain to check your damage output) but they make the biggest attacks all the less significant because every attack comes with a the pilot's 'getting dangerous' cutscene.


And they STILL don't have Code Geass mechs in SRW. What are they waiting for?

I thought the same thing, why no Code Geass ?
Of all those series, I've watched only 3. Maybe they're trying to do what the "Jump All Stars" did, try to get everybody to buy the game.

They've been at this since long before Jump All Stars or even half the series therein existed. Ever since the days of the GrayBrick GameBoy (the second game appeared on the Famicom). Most of the series listed came out during the 80's, the 90's, or earlier. The Seed's, Dancouga Nova, Godannar, Macross, and Linebarrels are the only ones to come out during the 00's (and maybe Gaiking too but I don't know that much about that one). Iczer's the only interesting one given that I've never even heard of it until this listing came out (and the very scant research that I've done on it thus far was that it was a mecha series within another mecha series and then spun off to become its own thing (so it might have come out during the 00's too)).

Did anyone else find this annoying?  From that point onwards, I didn't bother accepting any side-quests (because I couldn't!) because I didn't want to be completing a whole bunch in order to make room for some more.

Not at all since I only took on quests that I knew I could do or had the materials on hand for. I mean, I could've taken that make a malleable mask mission back in June when I first unlocked it, but instead I waited until I could acquire one during last week's DQVC sale.
5053  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest IX on: September 06, 2010, 01:47:00 AM
The OTHER reason to go to grottoes is to complete side quests or get higher level maps that contain enemies needed to complete side quests. There are a bunch of loose ends left over from the main quest that will only be tied up with DLC but most of that can either only be done in post game or might as well do it in post game since there are a few extra conveniences available to you post game and some quests basically require you to have much more firepower than what's needed for even the final plot boss that you might as well just get it out of the way already.

Also the best place to level is a map with Metal King Slimes or Platinum Jewel Slimes since outside of grottoes only MKSs very rarely show up in the only non-grotto post-game dungeon (and I mean only with other encounters and very rarely still).

FFIV itīs my favorite FF from the Snes era. I just donīt think I can play it again and shatter all those good memories.

Thereīs one title that bugs me: Skies of arcadia, how does it stand as one of the best rpg of the last decade?

Everyone has their own preferences. For example, I thought Persona: Eternal Punishment should have been on the list and that Kingdom Hearts shouldn't have been mentioned at all, but plenty of other people love Kingdom Hearts with a passion. If I were to make a top 20 list for the decade, it would be very different from the RPGFan one. Different people like and dislike different things.

Kingdom Hearts 1 I could see making that list because it did the 3D action platformer RPG well enough to eventually make Dawn of Mana feel like trash. Ratchet and Clank did it better still (and much earlier to boot) but then we'd be arguing on whether or not it qualifies as an RPG or not.

What I didn't notice was Majora's Mask. Now that was an injustice.
5055  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Has anyone played the re-translation of Final Fantasy 6? on: September 04, 2010, 10:43:49 PM
I played the GBA port which is close enough.

It didn't really change that much, but it did help a few spots where Woosley was trying to be funny but wasn't (for reference; Shadow's introduction). Though Son of a Sandworm just isn't as good even if its far more correct. At least that guy in WoR's Figaro Castle's tower was a nice addition.
