The HTML nerd in me got a kick out of that page.

That looks like its from the Heart Attack episode (which was a totally awesome episode btw).

That second to last guy was the second worst example of the Gainax Bounce I've ever had the misfortune of glancing at.

Not like I was surprised that something of that magnitude was in there given the content of the rest of the video.

Grinded my way past Gracos in DQVII. A funny thing about that fight was the range of difficulty that fight can take depending on your luck. My first attempt during this playthrough ended with my party getting gangraped by his constant barrage of high damage party hitting attacks like his Ice Breath and violent beatdown attack (both of which hits each member for 60 hp apiece and my party's hp totals at the time were 183, 111, & 111). This time however he stuck to single target attacks (which hit for 60 hp but my hp totals were 168, 160, & 119) and his Tsunami Blaster (which dinked my party for 5 hp apiece). Granted he did get off one party smackdown attack and a poooooisonous breath attack but otherwise he went down like a punk.

And to be fair the grinding did help as I hadn't brought a single antidote with me in the battle so having Gabo as a Rank 5 Shepard averted what could have been an unfortunate circumstance. Likewise, Maribel was far more efficient at healing thanks to her HealSong skill which recouped my party from his violent group attack with two heals instead of three or four. And if he started to spam this Ice Breath and violent rage attacks I had Gabo learn HealUs which he could use to knock the wind out of his sails. As for my MC I had him spam Flame Claws til Gracos when down and Gabo assisted every once in a while by using Howl.

My MC is a level 21 Rank 5 Fighter with masteries of both the Warrior and Mariner classes. Maribel is a level 22 Rank 4 Warrior with masteries of both the Cleric and Bard classes. And Gabo is a level 20 Shepard with masteries of both the Bard and Healer classes.

Next up the hunt is on for Legendary Heroes.

As for FFTA2 I've nearly cleared 250 missions and I'm at the cusp of mastering entire characters of all their classes.

So far I've mastered...

X8 was also 2.5D unlike 7 and 6 was a B-Team effort from the start, plus it really screwed over the Zero series (in retrospect they really shouldn't have tried to explain away the inconsistencies to begin with).

That said, I'll plus one everything that was said about the Legends series.

It's funny you should mention hokey romance novels because my next game is going to be a Twilight spoof.

Will it feature sparkling mummies?

Finished RCR today. Maxed out all my stats and gained every technique too.

Parry has almost all the Dragovian equipment.  He's got much higher defense and much higher attack power then my Hero.  I recently bought the Hero a Miracle Sword though, and now he's out-damaging Parry again, but only slightly.  But then again, Parry just got Zap and now he does better Magic damage then Hero.  And if Multiheal and Kazing are in his future, well, I think he'll be a more prominent member of my team then Hero is.

Anyway, I found Lofty Peak and got the Magic Carpet and Magic Key.  I also found the Zenithian Tower and am trying to decide if I want to attempt to climb it or go back to that underwater cave and open the locked door down there.  I don't recall any other places I can use the Magic Key...only places I can use the Ultimate Key.

Also, recruited a Golem, and man this guy kicks ass.  He's slow but he's got crazy high attack and defense.  Him, Slime Knight, Parry, and Hero may end up being my final party, unless Bianca comes back or Madchen becomes much more powerful very quickly.

Don't worry the MC catches up pretty quickly to his son (unless you're like me and got the Metal King Sword for him, in which case he'll wreck shit up until the third period where he'll only be slamming enemies around), and once there he's pretty much your best character outside of a monster or two (Great Dragons come to mind there). Unfortunately for Parry by endgame his MP totals won't be all that spectacular (especially given how expensive his worthwhile spells come to) and will really limit his usefulness without feeding him Elven Elixirs.

Let's just say that no amount of Stolar power...


Could fuel THIS green economy.

Wait that doesn't make any fucking sense.


Seriously though, wasn't he the guy who said fuck RPGs? Why the hell do we care what his excuses are when the guy basically ignored one of the two things the Saturn had right (the other being Shumps). Thanks to him Shining Force III never happened (also Princess Crown).

Not when you abuse the hell out of weaknesses and/or use combo attacks.

I was referring to the enemy AI being intelligent enough to either rez or assassinate their Overkilled brethren later on in the game.

Also the lack of direct information about your attack's damage didn't help either.

I seem to remember a thread many years back consisting of pages and pages of hentai.  That day I became the chief of my tribe.

Wasn't that the one that started with that one ero guro picture? That thread was like 4chan before 4chan even existed...

I think you might be on to something.  Some chick was trapped in a mattress that was eating her and she had that typical "mattress rape" face on of horror and confusion.

Wait, I thought it was the one with the naked girl being sliced into bits with a papercutter. Does this mean there were multiple hentai threads?

The eating mattress thing sounds like that one crappy horror movie with the haunted house where teenagers go to have sex and then they're all eaten by a bed. Well, not exactly eaten. Stomach acid like stuff bubbles out of the mattress and they kinda dissolve and it looks really silly, because they don't even try to get off the bed and the acting is absolutely horrible.

In case it wasn't obvious yet, RPGfan took my innocence :(


5503  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which of these SRPGs should I pick up? on: October 22, 2009, 11:29:06 PM
Eternal Poison is good, but it can be overly complex, since you have to take key paths to get a good ending, and there's not much indication of which to take.

That, and the fact that overkilling enemies can be a royal pain more often than not.
5504  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal XX - Sharpened Pencil Midnight Bathouse on: October 22, 2009, 04:06:02 AM
Well, my Hero and monsters are all level 23-25, and the kids join at level 5.  And since the game keeps insisting on shoving them into my party, I figure it would be prudent to level them up a tad before doing anything.  It seems to be effective too, since Parry is about level 15 now and he's arleady outperforming the hero in terms of damage output.

How the hell is Parry doing more damage than your MC?

That as an aside, its worth leveling up Parry at least since he eventually learns Insulate, Multiheal, and Revive making him one of the best support characters in the game.

Anyways, I've made it to River City High in River City Ransom. Maxed my Throw rating and Health total and I'm doing a little more grinding before I wrap this up.

SMW was my favorite but I also have soft spots for B3, W2, L2, and G1.
