Quote from: "CluelessWonder"
I finally thought of something that irks me:  not being able to see if there is a + or - change when purchasing equipment.  Thank god most games do this and have it color coded to help you.  But for the ones that didn't I remember having to exit the store and check to see the stats on what I had already.  Freaking annoying.


Agreed.

Just to make it clear, when I say trapped I mean you can't even exit from the dungeon, and you got to re start the whole game again.

Regarding the FF games from the game boy, I wouldn't complain about breakable weapons in a game that can trap you in a dungeon if you don't have the needed tool to advance.
Gladly games hardly do that anymore.


You actually got that far? I immediately went back to the used games store to sell it back after about 30 minutes.


Actually, my friend owned both the gameboy and the cartridge. It's a pity, I was enjoying the game, but obviously I never even considered starting anew. It has been a while though, I think this was maybe 6/7 years ago.

"hate hard rpg's but this may have more to do with my personality since im extremely stubborn(in ff7 i only gave cloud materia that increased his melee abilities) when i encounter something in an rpg that i find hard i very quickly get frustrated wich leads to anger then controllers being thrown at the wall.i also hate it when i have to alter my regular equipment just to beat a boss."

I don't call that stubborness. More like weak nerves.

Since pretty much everything was covered, let me add two things I guess were not mentioned.
First of all, I hate when exploration is meaningless. Read, you find the weakest healing item in the last dungeon, among other absurds. I am playing Radiata Stories right now, and most often then not, boxes and chest are pretty useless.
But the worst offender is surely SH:Covenant. I remember I would upgrade my weapons and armours in a new city, then in the next dungeon I would find copies of those same weapons and armours. So stupid and frustrating.
Second point, some bad development choices that are frustrating for the player. The example I have in mind are those extremely tough boss battles, one of those epic confrontations of the RPGs of yore, which would take you 30 or even 60 minutes to complete, in which ending the fight with AT LEAST one character dead is a no brainer, only to find out the dead characters won't be receiving any experience points, and their lot of the sum isn't going be shared among your live characters. To someone neurotic like me that's terrible; that masochist thought demanding you to re battle the boss is just too painful.

One last thing on what Cauton wrote:

Quote
because if it can make people re-evalute their view of religion that might a good thing


Looks like I win.


If that makes you feel good...

Edit: Oh yeah! Bogatyr: I think you're confusing Alisha with Terra, though I'm pretty sure Alisha's gotten crap in the past too.


Haha, to tell you the truth, while I was writting it, I did consider that, but as a matter of making a point, I did ignore that; that's cheap, hehe.

Your own post. It's not my fault you suck at articulating your own thoughts. I guess they all get lost under your emo idiocy and name calling. Maybe if you acted less like a raging, overemotional zealot, your point would've been more clear, hmm?


Since we are in for quoting, let me quote the original post at hand.

Quote
because if it can make people re-evalute their view of religion that might a good thing


People, that means anyone who think of himself as religious. That's exactly what I responded to. And if the word Christian is a big deal, I used it because I am Christian, but it could be phrased "all we religious people" and it wouldn't change a bit of what I said. Maybe I don't suck at articulating my own thoughts, but that you suck at understanding them. Or then maybe it was just an excuse to show off.

Now let's get to some other points:
Name calling? Coming from you I don't see a reason to reply to this.
Overly religious zealot? Yeah, that's why I own over 200 Black Metal albums...
Emo? Haha, that's the best one. I am a huge metalhead - not quite a metalhead, but anyway - I am a very belligerent person, I stand for all that an Emo would find repulsive, and putting it simple, I have zero tolerance for the faggish attitudes of Emos.
I could go on, but I just remembered some thing. I am pretty sure it was this same Alisha girl who was severely humiliated - or at least it was tried to do so - and picked up because some people did not like the way she abbreviated Wild Arms Alter Code F or something in a topic she opened months ago. And when she tried to defend herself, things only got worse by people bashing her writting, spelling errors, lack of capitalization etc. Yet I am the one who try to humiliate people for no other reason other than the pleasure of it, or that hate people who don't agree with me or whatever.
No I don't, I just take pleasure in making a fool of pseudo smatasses like you.

Quote from: "Eusis"
While I admittedly can't really argue with your points, you ARE being a gargantuan asshole about them. Ash isn't much better, but at least he wasn't being a raging dickhead to people who were being perfectly civil.


Haha, now I am going to do the opposite and be perfectly civil with someone who is being disrespectul to me - haha, that is not really like me, but you are a fine guy.
Anyway, as for being nice, if you - who is nice and polite to everyone here - is saying that, then I guess I probably went a bit over the edge - as far as Cauton and the girl I replied to are concerned, because this levyur you call Ash is always a dickhead to everyone, trying to sound smart with his geeky sense of humour.

EDIT: Now that you edited that, Eusis, my post doesn't make a lot of sense.

Yes, because he said all Christians are blindly loyal to their faith. You dumbfuck. You are exactly the type of religious zealot everyone doesn't need


You are a fucking moron. I did not feel offended by any attempt of generalisation of his part - because, as a matter of fact, he did not generalise - I just thought supposing a stupid game done by developers - with no real talent for writting or story telling - who more often than not are targeting a nerdy - like you - crowd could make people - religious ones, "fanatical" or not - re-evalute their faith, is taking dumbass logic to a new level.
Unfortunately I was wrong, you take stupidity to a new level.
Yes, I am a religious zealot because I don't comply with stupid logic. Maybe you are exactly the type of stupid nerd lurking the net the world doesn't need.

Quote

As an aside, if your entire religious faith is challenged by a piece of sillicon that measures 4 inches in diameter, you need to re-evaluate things.


Bwhahahahahaha! You are even more stupid than I thought. That was exactly the point I was conveying. It's just too much dumbass logic to someone to suppose such "sillicon that measures 4 inches in diameter" could make one re-evalute his faith. And yet you decided to call me dumbfuck and a religious zealot because of the same observation I made earlier.
Let me give you a piece of advice, next time you try to act like a smart geeky on the net, chose a dumbfuck of your level.
Oh, and as for my previous "dumbass" logic, which I suppose you did not understand either, I was merely pointing out her lack of elaboration to back up the "God being evil makes perfect 'sence' to me", because quite frankly, I am pretty tired of people saying "God is evil", "God doesn't exist" just because their are picked up in HS, or because their lives "suck".
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cauton,

I already answered most of what you saying here just above, but, WTF?! As for reacting to things which weren't said or even implied - as you think I did - where the hell did you take religious terrorism from, or worse, me trying to play the martyr? Haha, come on...

Quote

And why shouldn't a video game be able to get a person to re-examine his or her views of religion? Books and movies, and even music, can have that impact so why not games?


Sorry, but that's quite the sophism I could expect from gamers. The old "games are as much a communication vehicle as books or movies are". The day you have profound games which are the correspondents to what Brothers Karamazovi - or insert your favourites literature classics here - is for books, then maybe this will cease to be a sophism and be an actual and valid argument.

I actually thing it's a better device than those, because if it can make people re-evalute their view of religion that might a good thing. Blind faith is dangerous.


Haha, yes, all we Christians are putting our religion on check because some dumb japenese developer thinks an evil "God" is the ultimate coolness! Alas if we don't, we are blind and dangerous!
Give me a break.
Now that is a dumbass logic.

god as the ultimate evil has NEVER bothered to me and actually makes a lot of sence to me.


Yes, it makes "a lot of sense", because... well, I suppose you don't even know why it makes "a lot of sense".
Just because you were probably looked down upon in High School that is no proof God is such an evil Deity.

I agree with these points, Dincrest. But the clueless puzzle problem that I had in WA was the chest one, in the last part of the game.
