Right... I never said all your staff was bad, or they dont do a good job, i only said i liked Pat's reviews more, if that's a sin, then im a sinner, if i like a singer more than other, does this means the others are bad? No.

And insulting me won't change that either.... Either putting your rage at Ar Tonelico 3, the only thing i thought that was bad, is the review, is ok if you didnt liked the game, but if you are a good reviewer, you will just state things as they are, there are many, many interests in the world.

 I also never said that Kim should change her Review, i just stated my point of view... I actually like some of her other reviews, for example, Ghost Trick was really well made. And there are many others...

*sigh* all this constant rage might by why i stop posting on these forums, if you cant take a little critique...

Tell you what, I'll help keep you away.


OK, wow, banning a member for stating a contrary opinion (and never getting even close to heated) while your own staff member calls him an idiot is just totally ridiculous. No way I'll be supporting this site in the future; time to switch to RPGamer. Is this really how you want to represent yourself?

Go fuck yourself.  It's one thing to say that your opinions align with Patrick's when it comes to reviews, but it's another to say that my staff doesn't do a good job.  You claim you don't want to offend, but that statement proves otherwise.  Eat a dick.

Been on the fence with this site for ages anyway; this makes the decision real easy.

"On top of that, the tired JRPG "save the world" plotline is still present."

Here are a few hit games from the past few years, and their plotlines:

Uncharted 2 - save the world
Mass Effect 2 - save the universe
Call of Duty whatever - save the world
Dragon Age: Origins - save the world

In one of the most nonsensical decisions in recent memory, Squeenix has gone and redrawn all the graphics for the new iOS Secret of Mana... at 320p. WHAT!? WHY would you do this? If you fire this thing up on an iPhone 4 or iPad you have to immediately go 2x and play at reduced resolution. This is epic fail of the worst sort.

With this most recent preview I'm really worried that the battles and "system" in this one are going to horribly dumbed down in the "modern" (consumer focused) form of RPG making. Bleh. Why can't we go back to systems like Chrono Cross or Front Mission or Xenogears where you actually had to do some work and thinking to make it through battles? We have yet to see a single RPG on these next gen consoles that displays any real complexity in its system. I want to customize shit, god damnit!

The state of the RPG in general is in a bit of a rut. 

Perhaps I am just in denial.

Pat, your facebook link still doesn't work..

It's not about FF XIII, really. I'm not happy with where they took the series either. The FFCC vs FF XIII post was more to illustrate a point into the ridiculous turn this site has taken. Even if XIII is a let-down, there is simply no way it is worse than the new FFCC. It doesn't matter that the numbers are from two different reviewers; they represent your site, and thus those are the opinions of your site.

The real concern is the second part, about the hatred spewed towards JRPGs around these parts. I know it's not JRPGFan, but the people who need the site are exactly those, and not the WRPG fans. There is enough gushing WRPG love and JRPG slander in the mainstream media, I hardly think they care about having a site where they find peace. People come here that love Final Fantasy, old school Square, turn-based battles and tactical thinking; it's a shame when our sanctuary is greeted with ridicule.

So you guys loved Persona 4: that's awesome. But let's put it this way: you picked FALLOUT 3 as Game of the Year last year! Come on! It is hardly an RPG, it is loaded with a pathetically amateur story, riddled with bugs, boring, easy, endlessly repetitive, and pretty much stands as an insult to anyone whose ever been a fan of a true RPG. The forum may stand behind you, but I can't imagine I'm the only non-forum-based reader who was alarmed and hugely put off by the decision.

Oh no! You found me!

I don't think you were in any way masking your identity. I just thought, if people wanted to make friends on facebook with one of our newest and most vocal members of the forums, there's the opportunity.

send it, I'll accept it. I have nothing to hide. I am sick of hearing the term "JRPG cliche" by the endless streams of haters, and when a supposed RPG site touts the same crap it is awfully offputting. There are still legions of turn-based, random battle lovers out there, but we've been all but drowned out by the casual Mass Effect 2 junkies, and it's a shame when one of our only triumphant leaders starts insulting our chosen virtue just as much as everyone else.

This is nothing new here, I've been watching it happen for years; the FFCC review followed by the pathetically gushing ME2 review was the final nail in the coffin.

It's amazing the kind of critiques we get. Most people would complain that we are too GENEROUS with our scoring, and that "real RPGs" like Persona 4 and Dragon Age: Origins don't deserve such high accolades.

And then you come along and tell us we're a bunch of RPG haters.

Maybe if you had the writing capabilities of a 3rd grader, you'd be able to express yourself more clearly instead of being cryptic about what exactly you dislike about this site.

Everyone be sure to make good friends now!

Andy Dremeaux is the nicest guy in the world, you know, and a fine graphic artist. He also knows the difference between real and fake RPGs.

EDIT--

Semi-relevant to the discussion, this article, which I penned awhile back, and was posted today.

I fail to see how Crystal Bearers is any less of an RPG than FFXIII.

It may not be a better game, but it's certainly not a less "real" RPG.

But please, post more of your riveting insights.

I didn't say it wasn't a real RPG, merely that it is absolute garbage and it is hilarious that it was reviewed better than XIII.

If you had the reading comprehension of a 3rd grader you'd have seen that the talk of "real" RPGs had everything to do with this laughable, RPG-hating site and nothing to do with FFCC. Believe it or not, it is possible to talk about two different subjects in the same paragraph!

That said, FFCC is hardly an RPG at all, besides a few random stats and the Final Fantasy setting, but that is a subject for a different thread. It will never be discussed though, because no one will ever play the game or want to talk about it, because it is such a load of junk.

Nice job with those reviews guys. As if this site wasn't already irrelevant enough a site that dedicates itself to RPGs that seems to hate real RPGs more than even the mainstream sites. What a joke.
