646  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What dead series(or mostly dead) do you miss the most? on: July 22, 2008, 03:37:14 AM
I'd say Lunar and Skies of Arcadia(Which I guess isn't a series. It could be though) . They just had a certain 'feel' to them that goes beyond gameplay. There's lots of fun rpgs. Fewer are ones with great stories, but even beyond that. Not a lot of games outright charm the player. Hell in the case of SoA it didn't have great gameplay OR story. Yet it had that something to make you love it. Other examples of this, not dying series, but just games that have that feel I'm talking about are dragon quest 8 and dark cloud 2.(At least I hope dark cloud isn't dead. I guess it's been awhile, if so put it on the list)

 For Suikoden I don't think is dead. Just stuck in 'we don't know which system to make rpgs for' limbo. Probably a lot of less mainstream rpgs sitting there.

Edit-To put it into words better, that feel is The Spirit of Adventure. And yes I'm aware that I just stole someones custom title to explain myself :P
647  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Bought gold? If you haven't spent 40k you are a noob! on: July 18, 2008, 11:50:42 PM
Oh that'll be hilarious. Buy $40k in gold and get banned.
648  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Bought gold? If you haven't spent 40k you are a noob! on: July 18, 2008, 10:37:05 PM
What are you even going to DO with that? I've got 15k gold and nothing to buy. You level your professions and get your mounts and then golds only use is upkeep. Repairs, consumables, stuff like that. The good gears all from either pvping or raiding. And while I guess you can pay people to carry you through a raid I don't think even they charge that much.

I'm going to go up to a bunch of black guys and call them GENIAL MEMBER OF ETHNIC GROUPS THAT ORIGINATE IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT OR CLOSEBY THEREINs. Then when I get my ass beat I'm going to sue websters dictionary.

Come the fuck on, isn't this at least a LITTLE surprising?


Maybe it was just founded on anti ps3 bias and me never wanting to get one, but I've just been waiting for se to announce as much for awhile now.

Yep. I don't see how people are surprised by this.

Parser data disagrees with you, sir. Are you seriously suggesting that rare/valuable equipment has no effect on a character's performance and only exists for ego masturbation?


I'm saying the damage is so minor it doesn't even matter. Some stats DO matter. But a lot of it is just for show. It basically boils down to enough accuracy to hit, haste and whether you have a bard or not. And things that go beyond stats like dune boots and multi attack swords(But these aren't something you can buy).

The rest of your post aside, because I do agree with it, Warrior sub on thief hardly "increases" your damage on Thief. If you're using haste gear, which 90% for thief is rare/ex making price irrelevant, the damage you get from Triple Attack merits proccing on two hands at once vastly outweighs anything /WAR would ever give you.


I found it to mean a lot on anything that actually had defense. Damage just plummets as a thief if you don't have berserk to break through. Squishies it added less. And squishies you can pull hate on so /nin regardless.

The real world economy has gone to shit and people are whining over money in a game. Fantastic. Real great priorities!

It's great to see people caring about what really matters in this world, gil buying!


That's dodging the subject with a unrelated issue :P

Still, though I never have, I don't blame anyone for doing it. The elitists demand it, obsessed when stats when most stats hardly even do anything. Like how a thief 'sucks' without leaping boots. Do you know what leaping boots do? Leaping boots don't do a damn thing. You won't see your damage go up with them. You'll just see a bigger number in the stat menu.  But you need them. Because the elitists demand them. And everyone's a elitist, because that attitude spreads(And I wasn't immune to it either).

Meanwhile if you sub warrior instead of ninja and actually increase your damage, even when you don't need shadows, people will give you crap for using the 'wrong' sub.

Well, for a girl to be 5'11" and weigh 115 lbs, she either has no tits or no ass, or both.


They can buy the tits.

Outside that though it's true. I knew a skinny 6 foot girl who said she wanted to lose weight even though she was, I wouldn't say malnourished, but bony. I was like, you're six feet tall, don't gauge yourself by what someone 5'5 should weight. And I did think 'Maybe you'd have a chest if you ate more'. Tell a girl that and someone's going to cry though. Either her or you when she's done with you :P

7th Saga


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

That is one of the hardest games I HAVE EVER PLAYED.


It's not so much hard as broken. They lowered stat growth per level because apparently the original was 'too easy'. And they absolutely broke it. Like that dragon that takes a hour to kill because you can only hit him for 1 damage. Not supposed to be like that, they just fucked the game up.

There's a way to really see the difference too, characters who aren't in your party get their original stat gains per level. Pick up the elf mage at a high level as a physical class. She'll be meleeing for like 300 when you're tapping things for 50.

That's what killed septerra core for me. Sloooow enemies. I really liked the setting, but I just couldn't get through it.

I started watching one piece again and I'm liking it. I stopped years ago because it got a little TOO weird with Chopper and hairy trannies who fight with ballerina techniques. Now I actually like Chopper and ballerina trannies are still annoying, but slightly more bearable.

 I think somewhere along the line Japan lowered my standards :P

what is Osterhagen Key an anagram of?


Earth's Gone.

Also, Storage Hen. I don't think that's what they were going for though. http://wordsmith.org/anagram/ is fun :P

Edit-Garnet shoe!

Lagoon could have been awesome(Well, decent at least) if your 'sword' wasn't so incredibly, incredibly small. You'd take damage running into enemies just trying to get in range to hit them. Agree on the music though. It was like 15 second repeating midis. But they were the best 15 second repeating midis ever created :P
