It's 2010 and this kind of shit is still going on about the PS3 and 360?

Well normally I wouldn't bother with these kinds of discussions but my flying car seems to have not existed somehow. Once it exists I'll leave this discussion to go cruising around in my awesome flying car. Until then, fuck the system that's currently the most popular to hate (I think that's the Wii right now isn't it?).

and wha-la.

I'm sorry, but this is a huge pet peeve of mine.  It's Voila.

And the problem with having one single spell for an element becomes cost vs. power.  You'd have to keep arbitrarily raising the cost of the spell to keep up with it's increase in power, and all that leads to is a lessened use of magic overall.  Having, for example, the FF type of spell dispersion allows you to ahve weaker Fire spells to cast on weaker enemies, while you can save the higher-cost Firaga spells for bosses.

(And yes, I know in the average FF game you can just spam whatever the highest level spell is on every enemy, but perhaps THAT'S the function that needs fixing.)

First off, you try remembering how to spell Voila while fatigued due to a combination of stress, pain, and drugs, ya French Dastard.

Secondly, I should remind you that resource management tends to be a rather large issue in terms of balance given that whatever you could nuke can also be whacked over the head with whatever oversized pointy thing the character is carrying just as effectively, and at little to no cost as well. Besides, FF games are a terrible example given how the games tend to throw more healing items at you than you could shake a Buster Sword at (except 1, 3, & 8).

And finally, You don't need to increase the spell's cost at all. Just look at how the SRW games do it for their weapons. Merge that with something like FFI & III's spell level charges and you have something that's easier to balance than the typical nuke, nuke+, nuke++, oohlookshinynuke^_^+++++.

Cleared chapter 6 of FE:SD Hard 5.

Now that I have a few pre-promotes with experience I'm actually making steady progress again.

Can you remember this commercial before it tells you what its actually about?

Say, I heard somewhere that one of the women on the Canadian curling team was 5 months pregnant and actively competed.  That's pretty wild.  I don't know whether that's awesome or foolhardy. 

WOW! A pregnant lady competes in the Olympics? Stop the pre-wait, curling? Nevermind.

Comeback with a REAL story like somebody skiing over a crotch high tree or post or something.

I don't remember seeing a Leo on the GBA games.  Which game is he from?

And Shuu isn't really a twat.  All he does is help the party.  Even in the main series that he's from, from what I understand all his twatishness is just a misunderstanding on Masaki's part.

Although I hear that all changes in OGG.

Lee. it was Lee. Captain of the Shirogane.

As for Shuu, look up the conditions of the final battle in SRW4 where you choose to fight him, and tell me that isn't a dick move on somebody's part.

Spoilers for the lazy:
Code:
He comes in on the Neo Granzon and summons five Valcions all of which clock in at level 99. Also, everyone on your side starts with only 50 Spirit. Also also, should Shuu's HP drop below 20000 he'll automatically regenerate to full health. Also also also there are two other chumps with him at levels 58 and 60.

And of course, its all of this plus the fact that you're playing SRW4 which most likely lacks some of the more modern gameplay mechanics that the later games enjoy.

I'm getting the version that'll cost me less than 20 buxs when I get it

Importing it soon then?

If I weren't flat broke then maybe.

Although even if I still had monay, I'd still probably won't get it until after I pick up at least Super Mario Galaxy 2 (or Metroid Gaiden depending on whether or not that turns out to be playable or not (either way the anime's going to be strong with this one) or Zelda 2010 or any of the other 100 gaems coming out in the next three months).

I can't even afford Mega Man X for crying out loud. ;_;

Cleared chapter 4 of FE:SD on Hard 5 modo.

Currently getting someone's ass handed to me by a Pegasus Rush (and they're all armed with javelins *facepalm*).

I'm getting the version that'll cost me less than 20 buxs when I get it (This off course comes after getting a next gen system, which comes after getting a new car (dare I?), which comes after getting moar buxs).

And speaking of tastelessness, one of the banner ads features a dude in the nude.

Speaks volumes about RPGFan doesn'tit (to be fair we haven't really had that many penis threads in the general discussion board in the past month or so).

Ah yes, SRWOG2.  Archibald was just an amusing psychopath who needed to get his ass kicked badly (it was very pleasurable watching the Badass Branstein Brothers(TM) do just that). 

The one I REALLY hated was Aguila Setome from The School.  All the crap she put the Boosted Children (Arado, Seolla, Latooni, and Ouka) through, plus the mind games she attempted on the Kobayashi sisters put me in such a rage.  It made me very happy to see the old bitch die, though I was also crying for poor Ouka.  I really hate mind games.

Oh, yeah.  Fuck Agilla.  I hated that bitch.

Adler Koch too.  Bastard deserved what he got after messing with my three favorite characters.


...there were a lot of complete twats in SRT, weren't there?

And yet noone mentions smug asshat Leo. ;_;

Also Shuu (for completely different reasons).

Screw release dates, they cut the club management out of Yakuza III. WTFM!
5053  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: List of RPGs for a noob trying to catch up on: March 01, 2010, 02:38:56 AM
Megaman Legends. You can find it on the PSX and the N64 as Megaman 64 (but stick with the PSX version).
5054  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What feature in one/few RPGs should they all have? on: March 01, 2010, 02:36:30 AM
A game shouldn't have 50 versions of the same spell with the only differences between them are cost and damage. Stick to one attack spell per element, increase its power every so often, and wha-la.

Or at the very least give later spells different functions at higher levels (for instance: level1 fire spells are weak and short range but can light things on fire, provided you can walk up to them, can let you see in the dark, and are incredibly cheap to use; level 2 spells can cross the screen in a straight line and are far more powerful and can even melt ice but you can't see in the dark with it, namely due to the presence of the level 1 spell, unless there's something light-able in the nearby vicinity; and the highest level spell rather than do any of that fills the screen with giant gently caress off explosions and fries anything in the general vicinity for a fuckton of magic).

CANADA WINS GOLD IN HOCKEY!!!  VICTORY!!  TAKE THAT AMERICA!!! =)
(sorry, had to)


To be fair we did set them up with the Mighty Ducks situation. Since I didn't watch the game myself I can only assume that they had snuck in a ringer (who may or may not have been female according to the MDS (though according to every anime/JRPG ever the ringer had to be some young hotheaded Japanese boy with really improbable hair and is secretly a descendant of the greatest legendary hockey player of all time despite the fact that its literally impossible)) so you're welcome Canada.

Also, what game was Team USA watching!?!?!
