Don't know if it's on here or not but here is THE dating sim for manly men.

I never had a problem with it in FF2, except when it came to levelling up magic. As far as attack spells go, just giving one to each character and having everyone double as a mage and a fighter works fine. For attack spells. levelling up stuff like esuna and uh... some of the less-commonly used spells is a pain, though. Essentially stuff like barrier is rendered a tad bit useless since its success rate is hard to get decent, and esuna doesn't cure anything common till the higher levels. So basically I quit playing FF2 because "useless status attacks" is one of my things that'll make me quit playing a game.

Honestly, ff2 is one of the easier FFs I've played, and I never grinded in it or did that attacking yourself trick. You kind of hit a point where nothing actually hurts you and you kill everything in one hit, and it happens pretty early on. You stop actually gaining HP at this point but it doesn't really matter because you're sort of invincible anyway.

That's not entirely true though since once you change to a more dangerous region the enemies become a threat until you close the gap in stats since your stats will not grow much further than a level comparable with the enemies in your area. This is thanks to the fact that those enemies in the old region can't do anything to you anymore making it pointless to fight them since you're tearing through the enemy rather than using and developing more stats (unless you take the opportunity to grind in their presence which is kinda like cheating).

Also FF2's enemy difficulty curve is set very low for the first third of the game. It's not until you reach Kas'on Castle (or whatever its called) that you'll see any real change in enemy difficulty level.

Just watched a bit of both Bakemonogatari and Needless. The former is pretty good but damn is it hard to find good subs for. The later...uhn...it's kinda like...uhn...A Lame Shonen I guess...
plus an ending that will get you arrested if shown in public (I mean WTFH did I just watch 0.o).

I've seen worse translations. Far worse. Far, far worse.

How far did you get? It's mostly not too bad, but some bits are just completely incomprehensible, like Liz and Ard.

WA 2 had some bad spots but nothing to the extent of the original FFT translation or the abomination of English of Ar Tonelico II.  And besides, WA 2 was a pretty darn awesome game.

And then there's Chaos Wars. :(

I hate my PSXes. They die faster than a red shirt on a Star Trek away mission. :(

The latest PSX death occurred earlier today while I was playing Beyond the Beyond. I had just returned to the last overworld town after polishing off the boss guarding the passage to the abyss. At least it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been (i.e. I made two runs on the previous dungeon (the first time ended when my last prepromote reached level 30 and had to be class changed now I have myself a level 7 captain) and either run could've ended in disaster considering how goddamn insane that afore mentioned dungeon was).

Also the monk is a lie.

Cleared 136 missions in FFTA2 with class masteries for...
Soldier x 2
Thief x 1
Fighter x 3
Elementalist x 1
Sniper x 1
Juggler x 1
I have only one entry on the second page.

Btw, is he still dead? I haven't heard the news say anything about him in over an hour. I figure something must be going horribly wrong for them to stay silent for so long.

That tattoo looks like she sat in something unpleasant.

He's making a joke about how one of your airships in the game looks like one of the Angels from Evangelion.

Fuck you Gen don't you go making me want to play Golden Sun Z*/*/*/*/*/ Beyond the Beyond.

Don't worry. It only looks like an EVA Angel from the outside. Inside its got an Egyptian Pyramid motif going on.

Btw, Gen did meeting that princess before getting the class change screw me over or do I still have a chance at recruiting her?

Also I went and beat Tetris DS while I was waiting at the doctors yesterday.

Now if you were a female looking to LARP then I would also suggest Lighting Warrior Raidy 1 (& 2 once it comes out) for your female on female role-playing needs.

Also get Rapelay quick since Japan's cracking down on it after some British football mums bitched.

On the topic at hand, games that get you exercising do work because people tend to be attracted to physically attractive people; typically, looking like a blob of jelly isn't the way to impress the ladies/guys.  Unless they're into that sort of thing...

Fortunately there are plenty of people out there like that (too many if you ask me). D8

And while we're on the topic of disturbing fetishes, get Water Closets 1 & 2. Teaches you how to turn women into makeshift latrines which is useful if you're into that sort of thing (also camping).
6085  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RIZ-ZOAWD coming to America as The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road on: July 22, 2009, 11:55:31 PM
I must be missing something when it comes to the title of this game.  Riz-zoawd?  Is this like an American McGee Wizard of Oz that takes place in the ghetto?  I think it's hilarious...

edit: so it's an anagram of 'wizard' and 'oz' .  I still can't help but laugh, imagining the yellow brick road and thinking "Rizzoad!"

It could be worse. They could've called it 'The Wizz' or 'The Wizard'.

Super Princess Peach. Getting to know the different emotional states of women everywhere.
6087  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Square Enix Game on: July 22, 2009, 11:41:14 PM

New info.

Now we know how many classes jobs crowns there will be, and characters' names + descriptions.
6088  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What's next for the Dept Heaven series? on: July 22, 2009, 08:27:16 PM
Their next game will be a real life RPG, where each game ships with aheadset that makes numbers pop up over the heads of people that you punch in real life.

Also: angels are involved, and you control yourself with a Wii remote.

Necroing and double posting for this.

Your prediction was off slightly Gen.

Suikoden III: Chris' fourth chapter. Did some major recruiting, but still have only 80 stars. Despite the subpar soundtrack and the smaller scale of the world (all the villages are so cramped and small, strategic battles have about 5-7 4-men squads than Suikoden II's armies) I think it's the best Suikoden so far thanks to the character designs, battle system, and the story.

Does anyone know when the story "locks" and recruiting is impossible? Because I wanted to go ahead with the story for a while, and resume recruiting when I've got enough clues from the detective.

Story locks after the final strategic battle. You'll know it when you start off against the three big bads.

Anyways in BtB just traded up my dragon for the fourth angel (or whichever one was taken down by that sniper rifle powered by the whole of Tokyo 3). And while I ran into a certain princess in a certain castle she continues to elude me. >XE

Also cleared about 110 missions in FFTA2.
6090  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Warcraft the Movie on: July 22, 2009, 07:33:31 PM
I don't see the problem. Warcraft has a good story that can easily be made into a good movie. Sam Raimi as director is one of the best things they can do.

This better have goddamn rockin' zombies.
