3406  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / World of Warcraft OH MY GOD CURRENT EVENTS THREAD on: June 05, 2006, 04:45:09 PM
I don't know what that damn Blizzard downloader has done to my game, but I kinda like it. :P

As I was chilling in the Undercity just now, I noticed some subtle differences in text size...namely that one out of every five people had their names written in 100 point font.

Other than that, things are good.  My guild's size has gone up by 50% since this time a week ago. :P

Crazy fucking hippies. :P

There's one question that comes to mind after seeing those Asian kids shredding away...who the fuck did someone that young have to knife to get that JEM? :P

Holy shit, I do believe Tom Jones just got owned.  That's great.

Here's something you guys might like.  I posted these links a few weeks ago in my LJ, but it won't hurt to reiterate.  I didn't even know these guys had any "professional" videos out there when I typed them in, but I was quickly corrected.

The Gathering, bitches:


Liberty Bell

Anneke looks so...giddy in those videos.  It's almost distracting. :P  And it really makes me wonder how someone who seems to be so happy all the time was talked into doing guest vocals on the new Napalm Death cd. :P

Action RPGs are great too.  Kingdome Hearts, Shining Force (if you care for the new ones), Ys Ark of Nephalim, Brave Fencer, Drak Cloud.  That's not what I was talking about.

Neither was I...which is why I said nothing about action RPGs.

I'm saying the days of simply choosing "Attack" from a menu are coming to a close.  Games like Valkyrie Profile make the gamer take a slightly more active role in attacking the enemies.  Xenosaga Episode II, the DDS games, and SMT:  Nocturne's battle systems revolve around using strategy to limit an enemy's ability to attack.  That's what I see happening:   a natural progression from the old Squaresoft ATB system to something far more engaging.

EDIT:  And no, the topic isn't being closed.  Every goddamn post has been on topic; you just fail to comprehend what is being said.  In fact, I think I'll pin it.

Single player RPGs aren't going anywhere anytime soon.  Like Dade said, and you promptly glossed over, MMORPGs and console RPGs tend to have far different fan bases.  Catering to one rabid group of gamers to the exclusion of an equally rabid group would be bad business, especially in the Land of the Rising Sun.

If anything changes in the Japanese RPG market, it'll be the death of the traditional turn-based combat scheme...and that's a change I'll take with open arms.
3412  The Rest / General Discussions / Kill the Load times on: June 02, 2006, 11:25:05 AM
I am the most impatient son of a bitch to have ever walked the world, yet I had absolutely no problem with the loading times on Suikoden V.  After everyone here went on and on about how it took forever for battles to load, I chuckled when it took all of seven seconds.  If people are that desperate for immediate action, I say go play Ace Combat Zero. :P

And I cannot believe someone used Cave Story as an example of good graphics.  Yeah, it looks okay...for something some random asshole brewed up on their spare time.  If I had laid down cash for that, I'd have set fire to the store I bought it from.

I have to say, in all my time overseeing these boards (not to mention the years I was just a normal peon), I've never seen someone make the argument that they couldn't get into games because they looked too good.  Kudos for being an original.
3413  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW - What UI mods are the cool kids using these days? on: June 02, 2006, 11:07:08 AM
I used to have a bunch of different hotbar mods back during my first time playing the game.  When I came back a few months ago however, I saw that Blizzard had added in a few new bars of their own on the sides of the screen and along the bottom, and those generally suffice.  The only bar mod I use now is Auto Hide Bar, which basically just causes a series of buttons to show up whenever I mouse over the right side of the screen while holding shift.  I don't use it for anything I need instantly; just for food and water, mana gems, and my various teleports.

Aside from that, I just use Titan Panel, Quickloot, Atlas, and Necrosis for my lock.  I don't like having a bunch of excess crap. :P
3414  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Fucking WoW Nazi on: June 01, 2006, 05:22:11 PM

Do people act like that on raids very often?  I think I'd be too busy laughing to play if I ever heard anything remotely like that. :P
3415  The Rest / General Discussions / Harrison denies Wii influence, says PCs will be unnecessary. on: June 01, 2006, 12:52:35 PM

Such is my opinion of the whole damn article. :P

Yeah, Rob's voice does sound a little shaky in a few places.  Maybe it's because he's being squeezed by a big fucking metal hand, though. :P

Speaking of Halford, I actually managed to find a video of the best part of my most beloved bootleg.  Gaze upon the Metal God performing "Heaven and Hell" with the almighty Sabbath.

I kinda wish it had been "Children of the Grave" though, because Rob fucks up and comes in WAY too early. :P
3417  Media / The Soundroom / A public service announcement on: May 31, 2006, 04:34:53 PM
In case things get busy for you guys over the next week, I'm gonna remind you early:

Don't forget about the upcoming national holiday.
3418  Media / The Soundroom / YouTube is the greatest website in the history of the world. on: May 29, 2006, 09:25:29 PM
Oh God, is that flange I hear on Anthony's abortion of a bass solo?  I know Eddie abused the hell out of that effect; I guess it was bound to rub off. :P

Here's something for the metalheads who haven't been metalheads quite as long as I have.  We all know and love the metal world's favorite bipolar lunatic, Devin Townsend.  We all know how Strapping Young Lad are some of the heaviest motherfuckers on the earth.  But what you might not know is that Devy got his start with someone far less heavy and aggressive:  Steve Vai.  And even if you do know that, you might not have heard any of the music they did together.

Well, I say it's time to change that. :P

...Steve Vai is disturbing me with the way he makes love to the camera. :P

Unfortunately, I've heard nothing but bad things about Legend of Mana.

You need to read this thread then.

The only current multiplayer RPG I'd recommend is X-Men Legends 2.  That game is stupidly fun, and I imagine multiple players would only make it better.
3420  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW: Male Draenei & Male Blood Elf Dances... HAHAHAHA! on: May 29, 2006, 05:37:30 PM

I am so rolling a blood elf male now. :P
